    Promising review: "Absolutely incredible value for this super soft cami! The velvet stretch is perfect for a looser fit. It's surprisingly well made, and I've seen versions of this camisole that cost well over $30." —Julie K.

    2. A casual striped blouse for those who are tired of wearing solids and are itching to experiment with prints.

    Promising review: "It's super lightweight and doesn't feel cheap. I sized up because I wanted it to be a looser, boyfriend type of fit. It fits exactly like I wanted it to. I'll probably buy it in other colors." —Kaitlin

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in women's sizes S—XXL and 17 colors).

    3. A collegiate classic sweater vest that's giving Hit Me Baby One More Time energy when worn with a skirt. OR you can put a Carlton Banks twist on things and wear it with khakis.

    Promising review: "This top is so cute! The seam around the middle creates a little flare. The sleeves are cap sleeves and so adorable! Super cute!" —Cyndi Lundeberg

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-2XL and 27 colors).

    Promising review: "It's beautiful, it's sexy, but classy at the same time. My boyfriend was like, 'Oh baby,' yet I still felt elegant. I wear it with nippie-skins and jeans. I also love this top with a FP lengthy necklace. It adds a little pop and shine to all that skin! I will probably buy in another color. The medium was a good choice but, I could have done a small too if that was my only option. I'm 5'4", around130 lbs, and curvy." —AColvy

    Get it from Free People for $68 (available in sizes XS—XL and nine colors).

    6. A lantern sleeve top to channel your inner Jack Sparrow with this billowy, fresh oversized blouse.

    a reviewer wearing the sweater in black

    Promising review: "First got the black sweater but then ended up getting the red and green one too. Looks absolutely fantastic tucked into a high-waisted skirt. I'll definitely scoop up any new colors they release. I've washed and dried 'em a lot with absolutely no issues. They're high quality for sure and they hold up really well. Very easy to dress up or down and really warm for the winter. I get compliments on them constantly. Completely worth buying, they're a staple in my wardrobe now." —Lisa

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in three colors).

    7. A sultry cowl neck blouse because reviewers all say it makes them feel sexy 🥵. There's also shoulder pads to further enhance your silhouette.

    Promising review: "This top is perfect. Very sexy and a great color. I ordered a size down from my current Eloquii dress sizes and it fit well. I am pretty busty." —Lois A.

    Get it from Eloquii for $54.95 (available in women's sizes 14-28).

    8. A wide-sleeved muscle tee that's responsibly made and is itching to be worn with a pair of dope overalls.

    A model wearing the top in white

    Promising review: "This tee is perfect for layering under blouses, sweaters, and jackets. The material is soft, silky, and comfortable and glides under clothes. The sleeveless style does not add bulk. The length is perfect. I want to purchase more muscle tees and hope they are re-stocked soon." —Monica W.

    Quince is a small, woman-owned brand dedicated to making quality, luxury clothing at an affordable price. They make great sleepwear, bedding, outerwear, jewelry, accessories, and more.

    Get it from Quince for $15 (available in women's sizes XS—XL and four colors).

    9. A rustic, floral high-neck chiffon blouse to shake things up —even if you're typically not a fan of prints. This one is so intricate and beautiful, you'll be itching to wear it on a sunny day.,

    Promising review: "I ordered the dark green floral pattern first, and loved it so much I got the cheetah print one! Comfortable fit that is versatile and perfect for work. I’ve paired the tops untucked with ankle-length pixie pants, and also tucked in with a high wasted skirt. Be warned — the material has no give! With tops like these, I typically get a large to ensure it fits over my broad (probably broader than average) shoulders. The large in this top was just right for me." —Carly P

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes XXS–XXL and in 20 patterns).

    10. An oversized houndstooth sweater vest that is the *choice* grandma/grandpa knit of 2021. Throw it on over a crisp button down and you're in business, baby., Instagram: @stephanieleighnyc

    Promising review: "LOVE!!! Great quality and adds so much personality to any outfit! I think the medium gave me the perfect oversized look, but I think the small would’ve worked as well because the sweater is naturally oversized. I bought another!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes S–L and in nine colors).

    11. An ethereal long sleeve top for days you want to float through your haters' minds like Katy Perry's plastic bag. Personally, I'm feeling like boho meets Prince circa 1984 in the best possible way.

    Buzzfeed / Christine Forbes, Lunya

    It's made of GOTS certified Organic Pima Cotton that's hypoallergenic. Even though I usually like to show a lot of skin, I really love this top and corresponding Pima Pants. They're really soft and shockingly, not hot at all. I feel like I'm walking in a cloud. Of course, I'll have to keep a Tide Pen nearby since they're white. I was so tempted to get the set in purple or black — all the colors are serene and elegant.

    Promising review: "Yo. I hope everyone else is out there rocking these pieces in the real world, and not just to sleep in. I have this shirt in black, and it looks dope tucked into some high-waisted jeans with the sleeves pushed slightly up. Not that we really have anywhere to GO, but hey, everyone at the grocery store will be aware of my stylish ways, thanks." —Kathleen L.

    Lunya is a small, woman-owned company that makes luxury loungewear and sleepwear. Their pieces are high-quality and made with sustainability in mind.

    Get it from Lunya for $88 (available in women's sizes XS—XL and four colors).

    12. A pink halter top for people who are committed to wearing knits year-round (like myself). It's very breathable, so wear it with a flesh-toned bra.

    A model wearing the knit halter in pink

    Promising review: "Love the slight larger weave in the fabric, so you can see a hint of your bra, making this shirt a bit of a tease. Plus, it’s just loose enough at the bottom to cover those belly bumps. It survived the washer and dryer with no problems. I am 5’3” and 123 lbs, with a D cup in breast size. Finding shirts that fit can be a challenge but a small fits perfectly." —Florida Gal

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in women's sizes S—XXL and 12 colors).

    13. A drapey Madewell blouse that's so dope, I mean just look at these huge sleeves. It's oversized which is a lifesaver b/c loose-fitting clothes are the only thing I feel comfortable in lately 😩.


    Promising review: "This is one of my favorite styles from Madewell. I have this shirt in every color I could get my hands on and wear them daily. I even have a couple in black. The shirt is so comfortable, but is nice enough to wear to business meetings. I love that it isn't fitted. My only complaint — and it's a small one — is that I wish the shirt were a tad bit longer in the front." —Britt

    Get it from Madewell for $39.99+ (available in sizes XXS–3XL and in three colors).

    14. A wrapped V-neck blouse because cuffed sleeves + this fabric looks incredibly high-end despite being under $20.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in women's sizes XS—XL).

    15. A luxe fuzzy sweater for people who [wrongfully] said white was boring. The key to pulling off neutrals is playing with texture and this piece is *precisely* how to do it.

    A model wearing the sweater

    Promising review: "So soft and the quality is amazing. Cropped a bit but looks amazing with little stomach to show. Definitely worth the price." —Emma M

    Get it from Aritzia for $58 (available in women's sizes 2XS—XL and three colors).

    16. A dramatic, puff-sleeve shirt so you can play with your silhouette and pull off something a little avant-garde. It's got a noteworthy keyhole back too for a little extra umph.,

    Promising review: "I love this top! I went a size up because I learned the material is not stretchy. It looks amazing. I wore it to an interview and got so many compliments. I love it so much that I came back and bought some other colors!" —Diva Reader75

    Get it from Amazon for $9+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 13 colors/patterns).

    17. A vegan leather cropped shirt for a couture look that'll take anything in your closet to the next level. The leather is ultra-soft and very high quality.

    Promising review: "Love the length and texture; can't even tell it's not genuine leather. Got a size small (size 27/4) and it fits just like the model so I would say true to size."

    Apparis is a small, woman-owned business based in Brooklyn. They make high-quality vegan fur, knits, loungewear, and formal wear for everyone in the family.

    Get it from Apparis for $158 (available in women's sizes XXS—XL and two colors).

    18. A knotted cotton tee because who said white T-shirts had to be boring? A slightly exposed midriff crewneck with cuffed sleeves is serving summer ☀️⛱ (which here means sunning on the porch).

    Babes is a Black woman-owned, Los Angeles-based, small business founded by Ciera Rogers. Babes pieces are specially made to celebrate and accentuate every body type.

    Get it from Babes for $12 (available in women's sizes S–3X and four colors).

    19. A classic denim jacket because all denim looks are never going out of style *nods to Britney Spears*. I love wearing my jean jacket with some super distressed jeans.,

    Promising review: "Wow, nice job Daily Ritual! Nice fabric, with a little stretch so I can move my arms. Real pockets, four of them. Side button adjustments. Great dark wash color. Best of all: the first one I have found in my entire adult life (55!) that isn't made with extra-wide shoulders, so there is no weird shoulder stick out as with every other one I've tried. Very feminine-looking, while still being sort of plain and utilitarian. Love it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $39.90 (available in sizes XS–XXL and three washes).

    20. A versatile oversized blazer to wear over your PJs just in time for the work call you almost forgot. Feeling froggy? Try wearing this by itself with a pair of chinos.

    A model wearing the blazer

    At last, my long search for the perfect blazer has ended. I can't wait to have an excuse to wear mine. I usually wear a size 6, but I got this in an 8 and it fits wonderfully. I used to think blazers gave off an uptight, second-wave feminist vibe (and not in a good way), but this one is so chill and relaxed. It's making me eat my words.

    Promising review: "Well made boxy jacket, great length with room for a light sweater. Oversized but great cut throughout. Can see myself using this jacket from day to night as well as travelling because it’s just so comfortable. I’ve been searching for the perfect checkered blazer for two years and I’m glad I held out and found this one. Very pleased with my purchase!" —EL88

    Get it from Everlane for $180 (available in women's sizes 00—16 and three colors)

    21. A solid crewneck sweatshirt so cozy, I'm tempted to buy it slightly oversized so I can lounge around the house pantless with no shame.,

    Promising review: "I’m obsessed with this sweater!! It is so soft and comfortable and nice and warm! If you are looking for a cozy top I highly recommend as you can wear with jeans or leggings and looks great!!" —Katelyn B

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and 16 colors).

    22. A unique T-shirt because it's mad comfortable and features a vintage-inspired design.

    Lucy & Yak

    Promising review: "Not only is the design wonderful, but it's as delightfully soft as it is beautifully comfortable. I was dubious about how to sleeves would fit on me as my wings don't offer that much leeway in women's t-shirts, but it still had room for my arms to jiggle in the wind. The length is lovely too: the perfect length to tuck into trousers but to also leave as is, and will still cover all your goods for those with larger chests. What I'm trying to say is that I want to be buried in this top." —Hannah White

    Lucy and Yak is a UK-based small business that makes outerwear and other apparel that's ethically sourced and well made.

    Get it from Lucy & Yak for $26 (available in sizes XS–XXL).

    23. A basic T-shirt because the one in your drawer has a collar that's stretched out and probably stained. Time for a replacement! Personally, I love wearing these to bed.

    Promising review: "Breathable, comfortable and great quality T-shirts. Perfect for lounging, working out, and running errands. I’m very happy with the color too, it's refreshing!" —Lena

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes S–XXLand 24 colors).

    24. A flowy emerald button-up blouse to help you channel the glow from within. This shade of green looks good on *literally* everyone and the print is pretty fun too.


    Get it from ModCloth for $39.99 (originally $45; available in women's sizes XS—4X)

    25. A striped off-the-shoulder blouse for imagining yourself on a yacht with champagne and nary a care in the world. Someone bothering you? Direct them to your collarbones since they're gonna have a moment in this top.

    Promising review: "Super cute top! I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it but I wore it out today and I loved it. Very cute and vibrant. I love that it ties at the waist. It is a little loose but I like it that way!" —NLS

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS-2XL and 26 colors).

    26. And a lightweight open-front cardigan sweater to cover your shoulders for the gust of wind that came out of literally nowhere because you forgot to check the weather., Amazon

    Promising review: "The cardigan is a legitimate fashion must-have in 2020 and beyond. This versatile cardigan is ultra-soft, lightweight, practical, comfortable and easy to wear. It doesn't pill or cling, washes fantastically and color doesn't bleed. This cardigan is a perfect layering piece that can easily be dressed up and down, can go with anything from a pair of jeans to a casual dress and will go with any style of shoes." —yinyang1121

    Get it from Amazon for $25.70+ (available in sizes 1X–6X and five colors)
