    1. A pair of lounge pants, because the only good part about working from home is that you can wear pajamas all day, every day.

    Model wearing the gray sweatpants

    Promising review: "These pants fit well into my working-from-home uniform. They are so soft, cozy, and stretchy. The waistband does not dig into my waist and the drawstring works well. I love the length — I'm 5-foot-3, so they hit the floor. It is a breezy fabric which is perfect now that the warm months in Texas are here. I love that they have pockets!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $19.99 (available in two colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    2. A T-shirt dress that says, "I am casual, but also so, so cool." 😎

    Model wearing the grey T-shirt dress

    Promising review: "I bought this dress for the beach and it’s perfect! The green is super cute and the material is light so I'm never too hot! I am 5-foot-3 and the medium (my normal size) fits perfectly and lands right above my knee. It’s form-fitting, but also loose and causal at the same time!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $15 (available in seven colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    3. A lightweight tank top for those brutally sweaty summer days that are right around the corner.

    Model wearing the light blue tank top

    Promising review: "This tank top is comfortable and good quality. It is light enough that I don't get too hot. It neither clings around the tummy nor looks too baggy on smaller chests." —Target reviewer

    Price: $8, or get two tanks for $14 (available in nine colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    4. A one-piece bathing suit that is flirty, fun, and won't need to be readjusted every five seconds when you're just trying to relax in the heat.

    Model wearing the black one-piece with deep lace V-neck

    Promising review: "Wow! I love this bathing suit. I love that it’s sexy but also covers the goods so you don’t feel too exposed. The crochet trim is gorgeous and I'm very thankful for the adjustable back. I’m 34DD and 140 pounds, and the medium fits nicely." —Target reviewer

    Price: $39.99 (available in XS-XL)

    5. A pair of denim shorts if you realized that the ones you have from last summer are all stretched out, and you're ready for an upgrade.

    Model wearing the distressed jean shorts

    Promising review: "Normally, I hate wearing shorts, but I love these. They are so comfortable and fit so nicely. They're high-waisted and distressed so I tuck in a big band T-shirt for a super simple, cute look."—Target reviewer

    Price: $15 (available in sizes 0-16)

    6. A long, open cardigan that you can throw over pretty much any outfit when the A/C is cranked up so high that you're shivering.

    Model wearing the long open cardigan in royal blue

    Promising review: "I bought this sweater in black and burgundy and love them both. They easily add a layer of warmth to any outfit without adding bulk. I love the belted back because it helps the sweater look more sophisticated. These sweaters will be part of my wardrobe for a long time to come." —Target reviewer

    Price: $24.99 (available in four colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    7. A hipster bikini bottom for having full coverage if you don't like having your booty on display when you're going for a dip.


    Promising review: "I love these bottoms! They are so comfortable and give me the coverage I need! I am going to buy a few more pairs in different colors as these are the best swim bottoms I have ever had! The fit is perfect and the price is even better!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $17.99 (available in three colors and sizes XS-XL)

    8. A slim fit tank top, because you need something with nice, clean lines to pair with your flowy skirts and pants.

    Model wearing the tank top in yellow

    Promising review: "I am so in love with this tank top that I ordered it in four different colors! It fits so well, and looks great with dressy pants or shorts and sneakers. I’m a size 6 and usually wear medium, but the large fits perfectly!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $8 (available in two colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    9. A ballet dress with that classic swoosh that makes a simple dress seem so darn romantic.

    Model wearing the A-line T-shirt dress in light blue

    Promising review: "This is an exceptional summer dress that can be dressed up or down. It is a major perk that I can wear a regular bra with it without worrying about my straps being exposed. It’s so feminine, flattering, and comfortable! It runs slightly big. I’m a 34DD and usually wear a size 6 or 8, but the small fits perfectly." —Target reviewer

    Price: $20 (available in seven colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    10. A pencil skirt if you're building a chic new wardrobe for whenever your office reopens.

    Model wearing the black knit pencil skirt

    Promising review: "This size 8 skirt fits like a dream and is a perfect length on my 5-foot-7 frame. It is made of some kind of stretchy fabric that really flatters the shape of the body and doesn't gap at the waist. Also, it is washable and does not wrinkle. I have looked at other pencil skirts from other venues that are much more costly and don't fit nearly as well. Thank you, Target!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $22.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL)

    11. A lightweight cami that says "Don't bother me, I'm on vacation," even if you're just spending your lunch break sunbathing in the backyard.

    Model wearing the leaf-patterned, orange and pink, spaghetti strap tank

    Promising review: "My daughter picked out this tank top in the pink pattern for me and paired it with wide-leg pair of off-white pants. It’s the perfect summer work outfit. For reference, I’m a 34DD, 5-foot-6, and 148 pounds; the medium is perfect. This is a great tank for busty, medium-to-short torso women. I understand why it wouldn’t work for a long torso. The straps are adjustable and it looks a lot more expensive than it is." —Target reviewer

    Price: $17.99 (available in three colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    12. A five-pack of briefs, because it's about time they made a pair of underwear that are actually comfortable and full-coverage!

    Model wearing the grey full-coverage underwear

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these women's briefs! First off, they are so comfortable: The material is breathable so soft against my skin. They fit perfectly and never ride up or down so I can wear them with any type of pants, shorts, skirts, or dresses without worry. The color selection is great and the five-pack is so convenient! Plus, they are extremely durable! You can wash them over and over again, and they still look brand new! I've purchased some for every woman in my life and they love them as much as I do!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $16.79 (available in sizes 9-13)

    13. A striped T-shirt that is simple and classy without being boring or sloppy.

    Model wearing the black and white striped tee

    Promising review: "It bought the striped shirt and it was just as pictured. The cut is a little loose which is what I expected. It looks nice tucked in. There's also a seam up the back, which gives it a more tailored silhouette than you would normally get with a looser shirt." —Target reviewer

    Price: $17.99 (available in two colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    14. A pair of jeggings if you want the stretch of PJs but need the professionalism of a structured pair of jeans. These jeggings are the best of both worlds.

    Model wearing the black, trouser-like jeggings

    Promising review: "I love these jeans! The color is great and they fit like a glove. As the weather cools, I will be living in these." —Target reviewer

    Price: $24.99 (available in sizes 00-26)

    15. A tank dress that you'll want in every color when you realize how unbeatably comfy this feels.

    Model wearing the tank dress in teal

    Promising review: "I didn't think I'd love it but I do! I thought the fabric would be thin and show every bump but it's a nice medium weight that drapes perfectly and is not sheer at all. I'm 5-foot-6 and 140 pounds and the medium fits me like the model wearing the gray. I'm buying it in another color!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $15 (available in five colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    16. A high-waisted, ruched bikini bottom so you can accentuate your gorgeous curves and match it with really any bathing suit top.

    Model wearing the bikini bottom in black

    Promising review: "I now own two of these bottoms because it fits well and looks very flattering. My weight fluctuates a lot but I’ve always felt comfortable in them. The high waist is so cute. You’re just a pair of sassy sunglasses and a big floppy hat away from vintage beach queen." —Target reviewer

    Price: $19.99 (available in two colors and sizes XS-XL)

    17. A pair of distressed jeans if spending too many days in shorts and skirts results in painfully chafed thighs that are desperate for some relief.

    Model in the ripped, light wash, straight-legged jeans

    Promising review: "These jeans are incredible! They feel so amazing and have a good stretch to them, but don’t stretch out and become uncomfortable over time. They remind me so much of American Eagle jeans which I love. I’m 5-foot-2 and 178 pounds, and the size 12 fits very comfortably. These are probably my favorite pair of jeans so far." —Target reviewer

    Price: $22 (available in sizes 00-18)

    18. A padded lace bralette that is equally as comfortable as it is gorgeous.

    Model wearing the halter lace bralette

    Promising review: "I'm a 34B with a wider chest and the medium fits perfectly. The band underneath my chest is tight enough for a little support. Also, the padding is not too thick or bulky so it's very comfortable to wear. The lace is not itchy at all; it's actually quite soft. I got the lilac color and it's perfect!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $14.99 (available in two colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    19. A tank top with full coverage, so your bra won't peak out of the neckline.

    Model wearing the thick-strapped tank in grey

    Promising review: "Two summers ago, I purchased this tank top in six different colors in a 2X. I have loved them for the last two summers. The quality of the fabric shines and I like the firm but comfy fit. I have machine-washed and dried them weekly and I wore all six of them on two trips to Kauai this summer with shorts or a skort and felt great. Stock up as the price is right!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $6 (originally $8, available in three colors and sizes 1X-4X)

    20. A halter bikini top that big-breasted people can actually get away with wearing without worrying about a nip slip when you go for a dive.

    Model wearing the bikini top in blue

    Promising review: "I rarely review purchases but I had to in this case. I have the hardest time finding a bikini top with support and coverage as I am 34/36D, but this one provides a nice lift while keeping the girls covered. I don’t feel like they are going to fall out at all which is comforting when chasing young kids. It’s very comfortable as well with the straps being thicker. The wrap holes at the bottom can spread out to style preference as well. There is a wire-like attachment on each side that keeps the top in place and surprisingly, it isn't at all uncomfortable. I am very happy with my purchase!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $19.99 (available in four colors and sizes S-DD)

    21. A maternity crew neck tee if you're sick of spending every day in dresses that feel like a burlap sack.

    Pregnant model wearing the white T-shirt

    Promising review: "This is my favorite maternity tee, I’m purchasing more because I want to wear it everyday! It’s super soft, and fits my bump well without having the traditional ruching on the sides to give it away that it’s a maternity shirt. I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this after my baby is born as well because I love the material and fit so much." —Target reviewer

    Price: $10 (originally $12.99; available in two colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    22. A long-sleeve shirt that is so silky smooth, future you will thank you when the colder months roll back around.

    Model wearing the long-sleeve white T-shirt

    Promising review: "These are gorgeous tops! I bought eight of them and still want to buy more colors. I hand-wash and hang them to dry; they look brand new. I was sad when Target discontinued Merona tops and tees, but this brand is better and is very similar to an expensive department store brand that has tops that are over $100." —Target reviewer

    Price: $10 (available in 10 colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    23. A pair of opaque tights, because there is no reason you should be paying more than ten bucks on hosiery that's going to reveal a run while you're, well, on the run.

    The opaque black tights

    Promising review: "These are the best tights I have ever purchased! They are fairly warm because they are thick, but flexible tights. They are not easy to tear, which is very hard to come by. They are the perfect opaqueness. They are comfortable and look great!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $8 (available in sizes S-2X)

    24. A pair of high-rise skinny jeans that you absolutely must check out if you struggle to find a pair that actually fits — these come in literally every size (including short and long).

    Model wearing the light wash skinny jeans

    Promising review: "I wear a size 18 and these are the first jeans that fit my stomach and thighs. I have ordered a bunch of different Universal Thread jeans and so far, they all fit like a dream." —Target reviewer

    Price: $24.99 (available in sizes 00-26 in short and long)

    25. A pair of jogger pants if you want bottoms that you can wear to the store without people suspecting that you're walking around in pajamas.

    Model wearing the grey sweatpants

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these joggers! They are so warm, cozy, and easy to throw on, especially during our new WFH normal. I have tried many other joggers from Nordstrom, Splendid, and Loft, and these are definitely the best value for the price. For reference, I am 5-foot-6 and ~130 pounds and the small fits perfectly." —Target reviewer

    Price: $19.99 (available in two colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    26. A knee-length T-shirt dress that will look gorgeous year-round at any occasion. Pair it with a pair of wedges for a date or your favorite sneaks for a casual day running around town with your best buds.

    Model wearing the knee-length T-shirt dress in pink

    Promising review: "I bought this because I was tired of looking like a slob all day while social distancing and staying home. I can throw this on and feel spectacular and immensely comfy at home. The length is perfectly modest (I’m 5-foot-6 and it hits a little below the knee) so I can run around with my kids and not worry about my bum hanging out. The price is fantastic. The fit is comfy and true to the size chart." —Target reviewer

    Price: $20 (available in seven colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    27. A tankini bathing suit top with such cute patterns that you'll wish it was a shirt so you could wear it when you're out and about.

    Model wearing the black floral print tankini top

    Promising review: "The fit was perfect! I love the style and coverage. This is the best-fitting and most comfortable tankini top I've ever owned." —Target reviewer

    Price: $32.99 (available in six patterns and sizes 16W-26W)

    28. A pair of sweat shorts if your air conditioner doesn't work as well as you'd like and loose bottoms are all you can stand in the heat.

    Model wearing the black loose shorts

    Promising review: "I needed my comfortable lounge shorts for the quarantine and these are perfect! The material is super soft and breathable which is perfect for lounging and sleeping. For reference, I’m 5’2” and wear a size 6 so I ordered medium and they fit nicely on the waist and hips." —Target reviewer

    Price: $12.99 (available in two colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    29. A cropped T-shirt that you should probably just go ahead and buy a few of because once you find the perfect crop top, it'll break your dang heart when it wears out and the style is no longer available. Trust me.

    Model wearing the white crop top

    Promising review: "This is a great top! It's not stiff and is very comfy for the spring and summer. It runs small and is quite crop-y, so I would recommend sizing up one or two sizes for optimal coverage!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $5 (available in two colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    30. A tank top with a casual but elegant silhouette that you can wear with your baggy jeans or a fancy shmancy skirt.

    Model wearing the cotton tank top in pink

    Promising review: "These tops are so comfy and they go with anything! I currently own them in seven colors. The best part is that you can use them for all of the seasons! I chose a small and it is loose enough to be tied, tucked, or worn loose as a flowy top." —Target reviewer

    Price: $6 (originally $8, available in six colors and sizes XS-XXL)

    31. A seamless bra, because you would rather the thing that holds your breasts up to feel more like a glove and less like an itchy torture device.

    Model wearing the bra in black

    Promising review: "This bra is ideal for large-breasted women. It is smooth, comfortable, and doesn't leave seam lines. The smaller sizes fit well, too." —Target reviewer

    Price: $14.99 (available in three colors, band sizes 34-42, and cup sizes C-DDD)

    32. A striped tank dress that you absolutely need if you're usually decked out in black — there is absolutely no reason you have to get something *gasp* colorful in order to keep those harsh rays off your shoulders! The thin stripes on this little number are a great compromise.

    Model wearing the striped tank dress

    Promising review: "This dress is cute, comfortable, and affordable... What more could you ask for right now? This dress is so much cuter in person and is a great shape for those of us with a little more in the hips and butt. I’m tempted to order one in every color and make this my summer staple!" —Target reviewer

    Price: $15 (available in 10 colors and sizes XS-XXL)
