    1. A ruffled-hem dress you're gonna never want to take off — and luckily you won't have to because it looks super cute with boots and leggings.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress, it fits perfectly and it's so adorable. The first day I wore it I got so many compliments and it was so comfortable. It was nice to wear as a dress or even a long shirt with leggings. The color is really cute too. I definitely recommend it and will probably buy more in different colors!" —Jasmine Ball

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 10 colors).

    2. A dreamy and chunky sweater dress people will think was knitted with love by a sweet and talented grandparent — little do they know your grandparents are too busy going on cruises to knit you anything.,

    Promising review: "This is actually a very cozy sweater! I’m in love with the material and it’s really soft and warm. The chunky knit is exactly what I was looking for and you can’t beat the price. The only thing I didn’t like is that it was a little short. I am 5’7", 150 lbs, and the large only goes a little past my butt. I feel like an XL would have been way too big though. Overall a really cute oversized sweater." —Savannah Giovannoni

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in eight colors).

    3. A casual plaid button-up dress designed with the one thing we should all value most in a dress: POCKETS!!,

    Promising review: "Let's just say that I am in love with this dress and will be ordering more colors. I read the reviews and a lot of reviews stated the dress ran small, so I sized up to a large. I could have ordered my true size, which is a medium. I'm 5'4" and 128-130 lbs. The large did fit, but I could have gotten a medium. It is a very pretty dress in my opinion. The pockets are perfect!!!" —NinaCymone

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in seven colors).

    4. A stainless steel birth year necklace perfect as a birthday gift — a birthday gift to yourself.


    Promising review: "Cute! Perfect choice for a birthday gift! Shipping is also fast, got this before a birthday party. My friend loves it much!" —Emily M

    Get it from Amazon for $11.89 (available from 1980-2006 and in silver and gold).

    5. A flowy long-sleeve swing dress to have the perfect outfit for every buffet you ever visit.,

    Promising review: "I want to order all the colors in this dress!!! I don't usually wear dresses, but this one is everything!!!🙌🏼🙌🏼 Very comfortable and soft! Love to wear them with boots or my Converses! No scarf or with a scarf, it's perfect! I am 170 lbs, curvy, and I ordered a medium. I love it!!" —Angela Alston

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS-3XL and in 24 colors).

    6. A pair of high-waisted faux leather leggings for when you need that stretchy elasticity but also need to look like a total boss.,

    Promising review: "These leggings are a hit! They are not cheap-looking at all! I originally bought them for a cosplay, but ended up wearing them for fashion purposes and they are a hit! Super comfy and stretchy around the waist." —Rebecca J

    Get them from Amazon for $16.50 (available in sizes S-2XL).

    7. A pack of 45 velvet scrunchies — one for every day of the month and then some.


    Promising review: "These scrunchies are awesome! They’re so soft and I was surprised at the good quality of the elastic. I wasn’t expecting much but these are definitely a step-up. I have wavy/curly hair about medium thickness, and two wraparounds was enough for a firm hold. Not too tight but also it doesn’t feel like it’s going to slip off. It also works great as a bracelet — you could literally match them with any outfit because of the variety of colors. A great value buy when stores are selling three scrunchies for the same price!" —X.E.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    8. A delightful pleated fit-and-flare midi dress to take you from office-appropriate to holiday party with just the change of a shoe.,

    Promising review: "This red dress is thick yet has a beautiful drape to it. The sleeves are lantern-shaped and have a cute ruffle detail on the edge. The pintucks in the front and back are placed in the perfect spot to accentuate the waist. The dress fits like a glove. It is a bit longer on me than the model (I am 5'2" for reference). A perfect dress for Valentine's Day or the holidays!" —ruth maldonado

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 12 colors).

    9. A stretchy knit A-line dress detailed with a laser-cut hem for that extra, delightful little something.,

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful dress and great quality for the price. I received lots of compliments, and I’m tempted to buy it in every color! The material has a bit of stretch that makes for a flattering fit. For reference, I’m 5’4” 125 lbs, and the small fit perfect and was very comfortable. The color was great!!!!" —Wineymama

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in six colors).

    10. A beautifully embellished mesh sleeve shift dress everyone will be complimenting you on.,

    Promising review: "Love this dress! I have a bigger chest, and I was so worried about this dress fitting! I was pleasantly surprised that the material had some stretch to it, and it fit beautifully!! I love the details as well! I used the tie as a belt to make the dress a little shorter and give myself a waist!" —Kelly Fox

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL and four colors).

    11. A pair of adorable sneakers that are actually rainboots! Yes, you heard me right! These cute classic sneakers are actually the perfect little waterproof rainboot and they come in a bunch of fun colors.


    Promising review: "These are so fantastic!! I'm in love. Seriously best rain shoes I've ever worn. The quality seems really great, they are comfy, and look like real Chucks. I was worried that because of the rubber they might look bulky like clown shoes, but it's not the case — they look great!" —Joanne

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 6-11, high and low top styles, and in six colors).

    12. A flowy 3/4 sleeve V-neck blouse so you have the perfect shirt for work and the weekends.


    Promising review: "I am absolutely in love with this blouse! I get lots of compliments on it. I found it to be true-to-size. I’m 5’6” and wearing a small. Perfect with jeans, but also plan to wear with a black skirt. If I wanted to wear with leggings, I’d order a medium." —Christy @ Our Southern Home, Blog

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 27 styles).

    13. An absolutely adorable (and super soft) knit sweater that'll have everyone wanting to cuddle with you.


    Promising review: "Super cute, soft sweater. Roomy fit. I usually need a M, sometimes S but in this sweater, the S fit the best, plenty of room even if it shrinks a little." —cantonmama

    Get it from Loft for $59.50 (available in sizes XXS-XL).

    14. A hooded swing dress that'll be the perfect thing to wear while you're living out your best casual life.


    Promising review: "I’m obsessed with this dress! I’m 5’1” and usually wear size 4/6. This dress falls one inch below my knee. The elastic around my stomach is not tight at all and adds the perfect amount of shape. The material is so comfortable. I bought the maroon one and the color is a bit redder than I thought but not crazy and I’m very happy with it. Will definitely be wearing this often and plan to buy more." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in nine colors).

    15. A stretchy A-line ruffled-sleeve party dress, because this dress is just too cute not to own — plus it comes in 13 colors so you can literally have a different one for every day of the week!, Amazon

    Promising review: "This dress is so nice for the price, it's kind of a steal. Fits so well, soft, nice material. Beautiful and classy. As one reviewer mentioned it can look a little broad in the shoulders but it's also part of the vintage flutter-sleeve style so I don't mind it. I'm 5'2", 140 pounds, 38-33-40. Usually fit size 6-8, medium. The dress was true to size." —Kaela

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 13 colors).

    16. A pair of super comfy black ankle booties your everyday uniform will welcome with open arms — and if black is not your thing, they come in 52 colors and styles!!! FIFTY-TWO!,

    Promising review: "I have purchased two pairs of Soda Ankle Booties —

    one in khaki and one in black. I LOVE them! I am a size 10.5 and I have plantar fasciitis which causes me to have foot pain in most shoes I wear. These booties are the only attractive shoes I can wear to work all day that don't leave me in agony when the workday is over! I buy a size 11 and insert a pair of Dr. Scholl's into them to give me additional cushioning but they are so great. Enough heel to look good, not so much that they further harm my arches. I would highly recommend these booties to anyone looking for a great shoe at an amazing price!" —SarahK

    Get it from Amazon for $14.77+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 21 colors).

    17. A plunging jersey knit midi dress so comfy you won't even care that people are stopping you constantly to see where you got it.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This is a great year-round dress. It’s long but really breezy. It could be a little see-through, so beware of that. I’m 5’5”, 170 lb, 36DD, and a medium fit really nicely. It can be kind of boob-y so I wear a sweater over it most days." —nnaattiiee

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $39 (available in sizes XS-XL and in four colors).

    18. A ribbed, lightweight, and mock neck BP. pullover that also has dolman sleeves — which, for those of us just learning about dolman sleeves, are those slouchy, drapey, and longer than average sleeves all the cool kids are wearing.


    Promising review: "I love these so much, I have four of them. They’re soft and not super sweater-y, more of a thick knit, so they’re cozy without being hot. I find them really flattering and easy to dress up or down. The neckline is perfect, not too high but just enough to give the mock neck look. Also great quality especially for the price." —tllallyrfrnds

    Get it from Nordstrom for $39 (available in sizes XXS-XL, 1X-4X, and in four colors).

    19. A super-soft fringed scarf you might as well tell people is actually cashmere because that's what it feels like!


    Promising review: "This is a very simple scarf, but it was perfect for the baseball game I was attending. (I got the orange.) I am a female and I was scared this scarf would be too bulky since it is advertised as 'mens', but it wasn't. I like to do pretty knots with scarfs so if a scarf is too thick, I end up with an oversized lump around my neck and chest. Luckily the length allowed for a good knot and extra wrapping, otherwise the 40-degree wind chill would have been miserable. The orange is a true bright orange (San Francisco Giants orange). I should also note that I would be scared to wash this scarf, as I would be scared the sides would unravel." —AUSTIN AMBER

    Get it from Amazon for $3.49+ (available in 31 colors).

    20. An oversized denim jacket for layering over a comfy pair of leggings when you just don't wanna put any effort into your look but want to make it seem like you did.,

    Promising review: "Love this jacket! I am usually a size 10-12, 5’7", and it’s very hard for me to find jackets that fit well because I have a wide back and wear a DD bra. I went through a bunch of reviews and decided to get the large. Honestly, I could have gotten a medium. But the large one is good! You can def wear a sweater underneath it. Go down a size when ordering!" —Betsy

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 11 colors).

    21. A pair of actually walkable block-heel pumps, because sometimes you wanna wear heels, and all the time you don't want to be in total pain when you do it., Amazon

    Promising review: "Love these shoes! Very comfortable. I was able to wear them all night at a wedding without taking them off. The only downside is they get dirty very easily and are hard to clean. But I did get the beige color, so black or a darker color may be better." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes 4.5-11.5 and in 13 colors).

    22. An adorable floral velvet bodycon dress I am certain would be worn by one of the leads in those **fantastic** holiday movies Netflix keeps on blessing us with.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $24.99 (available in sizes S-L).

    23. An oversized sweatshirt tunic that can also be found in the dictionary next to the definition of "comfortable" — seriously, look it up! I'll wait here.,

    Promising review: "A nice weight and super comfy. The V-neck is a little bigger than I realized, so I might wear it with a tank top. The pockets are discreet and don’t bulge out like some other inexpensive dresses I’ve bought on Amazon. I’d say an XXL is a 16-18. It’s not going to give you any shape, but it’s a sweatshirt dress, what do you expect?" —EB

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 37 colors/styles).

    24. An open-back yoga top that's really cute enough to wear even if you don't get that workout in., Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 12 colors).

    25. An investment-worthy leather Danse Lente mini Phoebe bag with a color-blocked cross-body design that you'll wear for a lifetime.


    Get it from Nordstrom for $430 (available in three colors).

    26. A show-stopping sequins bodycon dress you'll own every room you ever walk into in.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $34.99 (available in sizes S-L and in three colors).

    27. A long sleeve Lark & Ro V-neck sheath dress, because some mornings you just need that perfect, work-appropriate dress you can throw on without thinking.


    Promising review: "The color is GORGEOUS and the cut is similar to a dress from Ann Taylor for about $100 less. BUT... this dress is small, and I would recommend going up a size if you don’t want a snug fit. I wear between a 4 and 6; ordered the 6 and it fits like a snug 4." —Lacey S.

    Get it from Amazon for $11.81+ (available in sizes 0-12 and in seven colors).

    28. A bell sleeve shift dress available in 28 colors and prints — TWENTY-EIGHT!! You could literally have one for every weekday of the month — if that month was February and it wasn't a leap year.,

    Promising review: "This dress is perfect! I have it in a couple of colors and will be purchasing more! It fits great! I have an XS and a small and I like the fit of both. Size up for a little more swing and size down for a more fitted look. It's really great quality. Has underlining so it's not see-through at all." —Courtney Hupp

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 28 colors).

    29. A gorgeously elegant velvet maxi dress for any occasion, at any time, in front of anyone, ever.


    Promising review: "It is rare I put on a dress and instantly feel beautiful, but this dress is gorgeous (in green). I cannot say it!!!" —AriWearitall

    Get it from ModCloth for $129 (available in sizes XXS-4X and in two colors).

    30. A pair of uber-luxe Golden Goose Superstar sneakers just in case you wanna treat yourself to some designer duds.


    Get them from Nordstrom for $480+ (available in sizes 7-13 and in eight colors).

    31. A classic and casual pencil dress, because you need a new go-to everyday dress (with pockets!).

    Promising review: "I’m 5’11" and I ordered my normal size medium. The material is quality, thick so it won’t be see-through. It’s nice to have the option to tie the bow in the front or back (as pictured) If you are tall, SIZE UP." —Thedenverginger

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes 0-14 and in 24 colors/styles).

    32. An oversized crewneck sweater you'd look great wearing on a nautical vacation — or curled up at the theater while you watch a movie about a nautical vacation gone awry.


    Promising review: "I wanted a thick sweater that was a little oversized and I think I got it! I do wish the arms were a little longer. This sweater, like others like it, does attract dog hair and lint. I am 5'4'' and usually wear a medium/large top. So warm and comfy. I am very happy." —Tristan Stolz

    Get it from Amazon for $23.98+ (available in five colors).

    33. An off-the-shoulder blouse perfect for an afternoon at the kind of coffee shop where you need to hold your cup with two hands.


    Promising review: "I'm 5'7", 135 lbs., and a 34B. I ordered the XL, where I normally get smalls or occasionally mediums — order two sizes up if you want it to be loose and casual. The neck is almost big enough on me to wear completely off the shoulder. The material is not cotton, soft and stretchy, but will be clingy and show any flaw. The ink green is more emerald in person." —SRP

    Get it from Amazon for $13.96+ (available in sizes S-XL and in three colors).

    34. A floral A-line mini dress you can easily layer under a cozy cardigan or pair with your favorite booties.


    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in sizes 6-10).

    35. A flowy vintage-inspired chiffon dress designed with bell sleeves and tie-waist for a boho vibe.


    Promising review: "I wear size 10 (or large) depending on manufacturers. Originally I ordered the XL in the black dress — based on my experiences. But it was like a blanket when put it on (huge and boxy). I loved the style and fabric. So, despite me being lazy, I returned the XL and reordered a medium. Now it is just right (roomy and a loose fit like the model in the photos). Very cute yet comfortable and breezy. I love love love the style. It will be nice just as it is in summer, great with a cardigan in the spring and fall." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in brown and black).
