    Promising review: "I purchased this corset after watching a TikTok video of another midsized girl talking about it. It did not disappoint! It fits nicely, I got lots of compliments on it!

    Promising review: "OBSESSED! I am SO happy I ended up ordering this sweater! I had seen all the Instagrammers rave about it. It’s thinner than I thought, which is great for layering. The material is great and I love the look. I’ve already ordered two more colors and can’t recommend it enough!" —Amazon Customer

    Psst — reviewers advise sizing up!

    Promising review: "Love this skirt so much, I bought it in four colors. The slit is perfect making it easy to walk, but not too high. I wear the slit in the back. On one of the skirts the tag was on the wrong side and the other three it was where the slit was, so I know you can wear it either way. The material is the perfect thickness for all year and is not see-through. These are a great staple to have." —Lauren Winn

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 19 colors).

    10. A pair of Oxford flats with a modern cut-out twist that make them both timeless *and* ridiculously chic. They're also waterproof, durable, and designed with cushioned insoles for maximum comfort. And fun fact: these were designed for Emma Watson!

    Reviewers and the site suggest ordering a size up! 

    Promising review: "These are absolutely the perfect shoes! They are the loafer look of the season, but not in your typical run-of-the-mill, age-old look. These shoes are stylish and stunning, but in an understated, fabulous way. These are the new 'classic.' The leather is gorgeous and the fit is totally amazing! I plan on getting a lot of wear out of these shoes as well as a ton of compliments!!" —Irene W. 

    Get it from Nisolo for $160 (available in sizes 5–11 and five colors). 

    11. A pair of faux-leather leggings reviewers are calling an excellent Spanx dupe, because frankly we all *deserve* to look this glamorous without paying an extremely unglamorous price for it.

    Promising review: "So, I’m really hesitant to buy any clothing on Amazon. I typically don’t. But I saw this dress on a curvy person from TikTok, and I was like, 'That dress is stunning on them,' so I added it to my cart. I took a leap, and I’m happy I did. I have room to move, it’s not tight at all, and I’m in love with it. I’ll have to safety-pin it or make a small stitch to it to stop my bra and chest from showing so much, but other than that, it’s really a beautiful dress! It is shorter on the sides, so be warned about that." —Nicole P. 

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 20 colors). 

    13. A plaid mini skirt that manages the rare feat of being adorable in pretty much *any* season, depending on how you decide to style it.

    Promising review: "I love this skirt and the way it fits! I followed the size chart, even though I thought it might be too big. To my surprise, it fits like a dream! I love the color, and the price isn’t bad!" —Amy R.

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 24 colors).

    14. A stapleworthy quilted puffer jacket perfect for that cold-but-not-quite-freezing part of the season. Except YOWZA, good luck deciding from all the cute colors it comes in, because I am personally STUMPED.

    Reviewers say to size down! 

    Promising review: "I wore this during a trip to NYC. Temps ranged from the mid 40s to mid 50s, and this kept me warm, was comfy, and was cute with all of my outfits. And the best part: It has ample pocket space, so I didn't have to carry a clutch!" —Kandace

    Get it from Amazon for $62.99+ (get this price by clipping the $6 off coupon on the product page; available in sizes XS–L and 15 colors). 

    15. A roomy denim jacket that will basically become your emotional support denim when you realize how seamlessly it works with all your dresses and tees.

    Promising review: "Love this jacket! Pretty sure I wear it four to five times a week. Love the oversized fit, not too large that it looks ridiculous. Has four functional pockets (two outside and two inside) which are really nice. I’m able to fit my phone, keys, and wallet easily without looking bulky. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would!" —Moni W.

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S–L and six styles).

    16. A supremely cozy retro-inspired Halloween tee for anyone ready to get their cute *and* their creep on. It comes in multiple colors, so make sure to get the "pepper" shade for the vintage look!

    Emerald & Jade Co. is a Florida-based Etsy shop that specializes in custom tees and gifts. 

    Promising review: "Buy this shirt! The quality is amazing. It’s thick, the pepper color is true to the photos, the print quality is an A+. This is by far the cutest Halloween shirt I have, and I have many. Shipping was quick too! Also runs true to size, for an oversized look I sized up." —Ashley Taylor

    Get it from Emerald & Jade Co. on Etsy for $22.40+ (available in sizes S–2X and 10 colors). 

    17. A pair of lightweight legging-style joggers reviewers swear by for perfect Lululemon Align Jogger dupes — these are the perfect seasonal transition pants for exercise and errand-running on days when it's a little chilly, but not *quite* fully cold. 

    Promising review: "These are literally the best leggings/joggers I have ever owned, and I plan to eventually buy every single color. I originally saw these on TikTok and heard they were like the Lululemon ones but cheaper. I've never owned Lululemon leggings, but if they feel anything like these, then I have clearly been missing out. These are soft and absolutely perfect. I love the pockets and jogger style and that they fit like leggings and can be worn to the gym or dressed up with a cute outfit. I need to buy every color of these before they're gone!" —Courtney 

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 12 colors). 

    18. A sleeveless halter bodysuit made with such soft, stretchy, durable material that reviewers say it's an *excellent* Zara and Skims dupe, perfect for pairing with high-waisted jeans, skirts, and blazers. It's compressive enough that a lot of reviewers were also impressed that they didn't need a bra with it!

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 18 colors). 

    19. A minimalist watch so chic you'll find yourself admiring it enough times that you'll give the Mad Hatter a run for his time-checking money.

    Promising review: "I ordered this watch not expecting to be blown away because of the price. Boy, was I wrong! I immediately put on the watch as soon as I opened it up; It fits comfortably and the band wasn’t too small, which I was a little concerned about. I’ll definitely be looking to purchase other styles of this watch. Great buy, especially for the price!" —Jessica Kurry
