Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. 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 $24.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in eight colors).

    2. A pair of faux-suede tassel oxford loafers you might actually be able to walk around in all day — I know, what a concept!,

    Promising review: "Oh, these are adorable. I did have to go up in size pretty significantly — I'm usually a 5.5, but I ordered a 7 and I'm glad I did. They're pretty comfortable without adding any insoles or anything, and the gray color I ordered is a nice 'greige,' it's a little beige-ish, so a very modern neutral. I think I'll get about 20 wears out of them and I can see them staying 'in style' for a long time. I'll be ordering the green if it's ever in stock again!" —Jenna

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-10 and in six colors).

    3. 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 $33.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in five colors).

    4. 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 $19.31+ (available in sizes S-XL and in six colors).

    5. A stretchy A-line ruffled-sleeve party dress, because this dress is just too cute not to own — plus it comes in 12 colors so you can literally have a different one for every day of the week!,

    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 $16.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 12 colors).

    6. A faux-leather paper-bag-waist pencil skirt for when you wanna feel like an office-appropriate badass.

    River Island

    Get it from River Island for $84 (available in sizes 2-14).

    7. 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 25 colors).

    8. 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 $23.99+ (available in sizes 5XS-XL and in brown and black).

    9. A chic AF contrasting-sleeve blazer jacket that'll look so freakin' cute over your favorite boyfriend jeans!

    Promising review: "Item was scheduled to arrive between Sept. 10 and Oct. 1 but it arrived Aug. 29, so don't let these dates scare you from purchasing. I am a size small and 5'2". I ordered the small, which fits quite loose; this gives plenty of room for layering up during the cold seasons. The arms are right on my wrist which I think are too short for a jacket so if you have long arms they might be even shorter. The coat is soft, lightweight, and cozy. Not something I will recommend during the brutally cold winter weather but definitely for the fall and spring. I love this purchase — it's simple, unique, and quite stylish for the price." —Snowy May

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

    10. A long-sleeve floral-print blouse to layer under your favorite blazer or wear alone — doesn't matter, it'll be cute either way!

    Promising review: "I dreaded getting this, thinking it would be crap, but to my delight and surprise it is the nicest top I've ever received. It is gorgeous! The material is outstanding, the colors are beautiful, and it fits like a dream. If you're hesitating, go for it! You will not be disappointed!!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in seven prints).

    11. A ruffled-hem dress you're gonna never want to take off when the temperatures drop — or when you just wanna live in your 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 $18.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in blue, red, and green).

    12. A lantern-sleeve mini dress to dress up or down — basically, it'll be comfy enough for your Thanksgiving dinner plans and dressy enough not to get you judged by your opinionated relatives.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in eight colors).

    13. A pair of chunky-heel booties that'll be your go-to shoe from now until the sun comes back out...and maybe even a little after that.

    Promising review: "I love these shoes. I wear them for work often and they look great with dresses and pants. Received so many compliments from friends and strangers asking where they can get a pair. I will definitely be ordering at least one more in a different color. I have a wide foot so it was a little snug when I first put them on but now they fit perfectly. No cushion inside so I would recommend buying an insert if you are going to be on your feet for long." —Caroline Kelly

    Get them from Amazon for $21+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and in 28 colors).

    14. A sparkling sequined Topshop skirt so you can light up the night — or, and just hear me out, wear it with an oversized sweater and a pair of cute sneakers.


    Get it from Nordstrom for $130 (available in sizes 2-12).

    15. A short-sleeve blouse designed with a delightful little embellished collar.

    Promising review: "I weigh 170 lbs, am 5'2", and I got an XL. My chest is 38" so I was concerned but it fit just right! The material is a stretchy fabric and fits just below my waist so it hides the belly 😅. The top is wide enough for my neck and it's easy to reach the back button." —Ortiz

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in eight colors).

    16. An oversized batwing-sleeve knit cardigan you can throw on when you complain that it's cold in the house and that you want to turn up the heat but your mom just yells at you to put a sweater on.,

    Promising review: "Love love love this sweater!!! I am a size 12, about 188 lbs., usually wear a large (sometimes an XL), and I’m a 36D. It covered my behind and had just the right amount of bagginess. It came down to the back of my mid-thigh (I’m 5’2") — it’s exactly what I wanted." —Britney Baez

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    17. A chic leather-belt fanny pack to have everything within arm's reach when you're running around town and don't want to carry a bag.

    Promising review: "This was perfect for my trip to Italy! Italy is big on pickpockets, so this was perfect to prevent any theft and it was super fashionable. The sizing was perfect since I have a small waist as well. Excellent purchase! I used it for the entire trip, matched with my brown sandals too." —Mikela

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99+ (available in sizes 27"-42" and in eight colors).

    18. A ribbed, side-button detailed midi dress that'll look so damn cute layered under a moto jacket.

    River Island

    Get it from River Island for $64 (available in sizes 2-14 and in five colors).

    19. 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 $460+ (available in sizes 6-13 and in four colors).

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

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes 0-14 and in 34 colors/styles).

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

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in eight colors).

    22. 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 $380+ (available in six colors).

    23. 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 $5.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and with short or long sleeves).

    24. 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-3XL and in 15 colors).

    25. A cozy and totally practical knitted beanie you damn well know all the cool kids are wearing.

    Promising review: "The contours of this red beanie are only surpassed by the craftsmanship of its interwoven fibers, resulting in a cap that is both functional and fashionable. After having nestled my noggin in the warm embrace of this cap, I don't think I can ever soil my scalp with something as crude as a baseball cap. Simply brilliant in every way." —Asa_Kendall

    Get it from Amazon for $4.95+ (available in 13 colors).

    26. A cushy cardigan coat fluffy enough to keep you cozy and warm during those chilly nights.

    Promising review: "I had been looking for the perfect teddy-bear coat and I'm done searching! This one is perfect and the best part is that it has pockets!! It's one-size-fits-most, which is a little big for me, but I love the oversized style. It looks great with skinny jeans or leggings and it is the coziest ever! I have been living in it ever since I received it. So perfect for these cold winter days!" —Stephanie Castillo

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in XS-3XL, and one-size-fits-most for select colors, and in 13 colors).

    27. A showstopping leopard-print Ganni raincoat that'll have you singing, "Rain, rain please don't go away."


    Get it from Nordstrom for $295 (available in sizes 6 and 10).

    28. A super-freakin' cozy oversized faux shearling jacket to keep you as snug as a bug this fall.

    Promising review: "This jacket is soooo cute. It is exactly what I expected since the other reviews say the sizes run a bit small. I recommend ordering a size up. That's what I did and I love it. It's so soft and cuddly — like you're inside a teddy bear lol!" —Ciera

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 13 colors).

    29. A longline wool-blend overcoat that's easily layerable to give you so many great autumn looks.,

    Promising review: "I'm about 5'3" and 115-120 lbs. I usually wear a small, but decided to go with a medium instead because of some of the reviews saying the shoulders were a little tight. The small would have fit, but I'm glad I ordered up so I can wear thicker sweaters underneath. Without a sweater, it fits comfortably and is not tight at all; with a sweater it gets a little snug around the shoulders. It hits a little above my ankles — great length, exactly what I was looking for. The coat isn't the warmest, but the length definitely helps. I have been wearing it in around 30- to 40-degree weather, sometimes with or without a sweater underneath, and it does the job. Love it, highly recommend!" —Rose

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

    30. A mid-length blazer coat for when it's pumpkin spice season and you need a coordinating OOTD.

    Promising review: "Love the style and how lightweight it is! The price and size were just right. My only complaint is NO POCKETS!! There is just the imitation flap on both sides where pockets should be, ugh! I am 5'3" and the length is a little below my knees which I like, so I'm gonna keep it anyway." —fancyfeet

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes L-6XL).

    31. A stunning corduroy button-up cocktail dress with le pockets that looks as expensive as it is cozy.

    Promising review: "I ordered a large based on the bust measurements, even though my waist is smaller and I'm glad that I did. The large fits perfectly. I agree that the buttons are kind of chintzy, but they honestly look cute. I had planned to replace them when the dress/coat arrived, but I think that I will wait a while. I didn't realize that the slit continues all the way down the front, so this truly is a coat. However, I do think that I will wear it as a dress sometimes with bicycle shorts underneath and maybe tights because it is cute as a dress as well." —Anna

    Get it from Amazon for $46.98+ (available in sizes 2-12).

    32. A peplum oversized blouse you'll throw on with your favorite trousers when you're running late to...everything.

    Promising review: "I am 5'9", long torso'd, and was pleasantly surprised that this was actually long enough for me. Normally, I wear a medium or large in tops and this fits like a loose-fitting top in my size. The color is a bit duller than I expected but it's fine. The fabric came very wrinkled but it's a bit of a stiff cotton feel, and I know they'll all come out once I've laundered it." —Reannen

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 10 colors).

    33. 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 $23.99 (available in burgundy and gray).

    34. A comfy snap-side sweatshirt for all those winter marathons you'll be running...or watching.

    River Island

    Get it from River Island for $60 (available in sizes 14-24 and XS-L). Find the matching joggers for $70.

    35. An epic sequined Dress the Population jumpsuit I have absolutely no place to wear but still, somehow, desperately need.


    Promising review: "This jumpsuit is perfect for any holiday, semi-formal, or dressy party occasion! True to size or just a tiny bit roomy. I'm about 5'2" and I will have to get the pants hemmed. The jumpsuit waistline is a little high-waisted. You can barely see the waist seam, but it does have a somewhat empire waistline feel and I'm short. It will make your legs look longer. Most importantly, the sequins are a matte black, not majorette shiny; this worked for me. Overall, I pointed out a lot of little details but it's the WOW factor. Looks really good on! Attending my husband's high school class Christmas party in it. Get it!" —shuezfordaze

    Get it from Nordstrom for $318 (available in sizes XXS-XXL and in four colors).

    36. And a casual plaid button-up dress designed with the one thing we 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 $19.88+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 10 colors).
