    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

    Promising review: "This is my first time reviewing a product, but I think this product deserves more! The quality feels great; it’s not itchy or anything. It’s very warm and very oversized, exactly how I want it to fit. I’m usually a L to XL, and it was still very baggy on me. There’s a slight turtleneck, which I thought was an additional plus to the sweater! Overall, I think this is a great investment if you’re looking for something warm and oversized!" —Vivian

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in women's sizes 0–12 and in 22 colors and styles).

    4. A fabric defuzzer to revitalize all your favorite fall knits and cardigans so you can let them shine the way the autumnal gods and the MRCN (Meg Ryan Cinematic Universe) intended.

    Promising review: "I have watched TikTok after TikTok before buying this, and it has saved many of my clothes that I considered not wearing anymore. For example, sweatpants after a few months of wear and washing get extremely linty. This has saved them and they look almost new." —Sasha

    Get it from Amazon for $18.39+ (available in six colors and two styles).

    5. A tiny milk frother so you can style a perfect latte and have a Main Character Moment from the comfort of your own home, gazing wistfully out the window wondering when you'll meet The One on the radio/on a road trip/in a rival bookstore.

    Promising review: "So I’ll admit I got this on a whim after a TikTok video, however I’m in love with this thing! It’s so much fun to use and you make your at-home drinks feel so much more special. It’s easy to use and froths pretty quickly if you’re on the fence I’d say what are you waiting for buy it already!" —Denise

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in 38 styles).

    6. Or a chic coffee cup holder to carry your favorite beverage out to Central Park *and* answer e-mails from your anonymous penpal at the same time!!!

    Psst — I own one of these myself and love it for the convenience of texting on the go! These even have a holder for a straw if you happen to get iced coffee or bubble tea and don't want to stick the straw into the drink just yet.

    Promising review: "I love this shirt! It's slightly longer than I expected but makes a great oversized button-up — the material is amazing. I get compliments every time I wear it out. If you want an oversized look I would order your normal size, if you want a normal look I would order a size down." —Courtney

    Promising review: "This trench coat is well constructed and very high quality. It looks great over formal attire but can also elevate a casual look. It has a slightly loose fit as expected with this style but can be cinched with the belt. It’s lightweight, ideal for spring or fall. Just enough to cut the chill and keep you dry in the rain but not overly warm." —Ash

    Psst — if you have Amazon Prime Wardrobe you can try this piece out before you buy it! 

    Get it from Amazon for $69.96+ (available in sizes XS–3X and two colors).

    These come with a wireless charging case that provides up to 14 hours of charge (with the earbuds able to play for four-plus hours with each full charge). 

    Promising review: "Best decision! These are the greatest headphones ever! I saw them on TikTok months ago and added them to my wishlist. I got a new phone that doesn't have the headphone port so I decided it was time to finally buy them. They are amazing and I probably won't ever take them out of my ears! 😂" —Katlyn D Arnold

    Get it from Amazon $21.99+ (available in five colors).

    10. A pair of high-waisted palazzo trousers that will inspire you to strut your stuff wherever you wear them this fall (which is incidentally a whole lot of potential places, because these are versatile as heck).

    Promising review: "I saw these on TikTok, and I had to try them out. I am short, so I was expecting them to be long, but they are very long. I am just gonna get them tailored. I am buying more, though, because they are absolutely beautiful! I've gotten so many compliments on them!" —Bretta Little

    Get them from Amazon for $37.99 (available in women's sizes XS—3X, Short sizes, and 33 colors).

    11. A spray bottle of SoCozy Curl Spray Leave-In Conditioner so you can let your Meg Ryan curls *shine* — this lightweight formula is designed to spray in your hair before bedtime to prevent frizziness and tangles by restoring and detangling curls, but a lot of reviewers use it to define their curls as part of their morning haircare routines, too!

    Promising review: "Amazing!! I had NO idea that my frizzy-haired little girl had beautiful curls. I went down an Instagram rabbit hole and saw a similar girl show how her frizz was curls. I ordered this!! My mind has been blown!! This has changed our lives. It smells so good! It is easy to use and air dry. Before my daughter woke up with terrible bed head that looked like this! Now it is gorgeous soft curls. We will definitely buy again and tell everyone about this product!!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    12. Or if you're aspiring to the more beachy-waved Meg Ryan look, Verb Ghost Oil, a weightless hair oil with reviews so effusive they're basically marriage vows — this unassuming little bottle is responsible for some of the softest, silkiest, frizz-free curls and waves reviewers have ever had (*especially* those with heat damage).

    Promising review: "This stuff has changed my hair game. I have excessively bleached hair. But this stuff is so great to my hair. It has returned it to a soft, healthy, silky feeling. My regimen is wash, condition for a while or use a protein treatment, let it dry till it's damp then I run like two to three pumps through my hair (I have long thick hair) and work it into the bleached parts. I dry and then add a little more after. I also add more before curling my hair to protect it from heat damage. The amount you get for the price is astonishing, considering most hair oils are less product for like twice as much. Buy it: works great, smells great, feels great." —Eva

    Get it from Amazon for $18.

    13. A darling daisy embroidered book sleeve perfect for taking your favorite novel or Kindle to the park, because in the words of Kathleen Kelly, "I love daises. They're so friendly. Don't you think they are the friendliest flower?"

    Promising review: "I read about this in a BuzzFeed article that said best, cheapest things to buy on Amazon right now. I was skeptical because I've ordered from Romwe before and not loved their products (they were sooo small). This fit as expected, and I got SO many compliments on it. I can wear it all through fall and I've already worn it out in the summer!" —Brandon Alexander

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in women's sizes XS–XL and in 15 colors).

    Promising review:  "These are so clever and versatile! I live in an old house with tiny closets so I have to get creative. These are great because they can be used hanging horizontally or vertically. I also found they work great for hanging camisoles and tank tops. I can see what I have and take just the one I need!" —Therese Van Heuveln

    Promising review: "Must-have life hack! I saw someone get this off of TikTok and I totally loved it. It does exactly what you’d want it to do. The shirt can unbutton if you need it to, it’s super easy to put on. I love that it gives the illusion I have a collared shirt under without the hassle of wearing an actual collared shirt!!" —Danny

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in three colors and in round and pointed collars).

    18. A You've Got Mail-inspired mug because even though it's a shame that you can't visit The Shop Around The Corner in real life, you can still live vicariously through this mug, one sip of caffeine at at time.

    19. A pair of timeless, cult-favorite Abercrombie '90s Ultra High Rise Straight Jeans so you can live out all your chic high-waisted dreams with juuuust enough cozy stretch that you won't feel like you need to immediately EVACUATE them at the end of a long day wandering around the Upper West Side running bookish errands.

    Here's what BuzzFeeder Abby Kass has to say about these jeans: "After two years of only wearing jeans a handful of times, I knew it was time to invest in a great pair. I had heard SO much about these jeans on TikTok and decided to see what the hype was all about. And let me tell you, they are SO worth it. I ended up getting the curve style (because it has 2 extra inches and fit my waist better), and I love how these jeans look. They're a classic style you can really wear with anything. I've only had them for a couple of weeks, and I've worn them in both casual and dressier settings. I've already gone back to get a second pair in black. That's how good these are. These do sell out fast, so don't delay if you want to add these to your closet." 

    Promising review: "Oh, these jeans are IT. I bought this specific style after seeing them on TikTok and am legitimately obsessed. I’m 5’9", around 170 lbs, with a more curvy and muscular bottom half. I originally bought longs with the hope to cut the bottoms for a more raw hem, but the knee holes were wayyyy too low on my shins, so I returned for the regulars, and they are PERFECT. A little tight with a real jean feel, but after wearing them for an hour or two, they are amazing. BUY THEM." —Abercrombie Customer

    Get it from Abercrombie & Fitch for $84.15 (originally $99; available in women's sizes 23–37, extra short, short, regular, long, and extra-long, 18 washes, and in a curve style). 

    20. fisherman cable turtleneck because by virtue of Meg Ryan Fall we are all in our "how do I own so many turtlenecks?" era, and this one demands to be a part of the moment.

    Promising review: "This is one of the most comfortable turtleneck sweaters I've ever worn! It is extremely soft and very comfortable! I paired it with skinny jeans and boots and they looked great together. It is extremely well made." —Courtney L.

    Psst — if you have Amazon Prime Wardrobe you can try this piece out before you buy it! 

    Get it from Amazon for $33.90 (available in women's sizes XS–XXL and 21 colors).


    21. Dr Teal's Sleep Spray with melatonin to help wind you down for the night when your circadian rhythms are knocked out of order because you're feeling — please forgive me for this — ~sleepless~ in Seattle. All you have to do is spray this on your pillow before bed for a relaxing sleep vibe.
