    1. A loose long-sleeved T-shirt dress that'll put comfort first, but still inspire you to post an OOTD. Don't forget to include "POCKETS" in all caps.

    Promising review: "These dresses are both a great quality and lovely. I have purchased ALL of the colors, because they're perfect for work! I work as a home designer in a corporate setting so showing of any tattoos is taboo. These dresses are absolutely perfect for work! I almost want to buy multiples of each color as a back-up!" β€”J

    2. A cotton and lace tunic top to beat pants at their own game β€” you should probably still wear bottoms, but I'm just saying.

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about buying these pants, as I am about most exercise clothing online. I got them in and wore them for a run. After my run I celebrated with champagne. Low and behold...these pants fit a whole bottle of champagne in the pocket! This was a phenomenal feature! Since then, my run times have improved tremendously.

They are thick enough that you can't see through them and feel sturdy, but they are thin enough that it is comfortable to wear them (right now it is 78 F and very humid and I feel cool). I love the pockets on both sides! They are big enough to fit my iPhone with its thick case, and it doesn't look weird. I will order more." β€”Kindle Customer

    Promising review: "OMG, this is so cute. I am a size 14 so XL would've been perfect fit, but I wanted to have that looser look like the model so got a size XXL. I pulled it off perfectly. I wore this to a concert in December in Chicago with just high riding boots and it was a true thick flannel: not cheap material at all. I got tons of compliments and one person told me this goes for $65 in boutiques β€” I told her check out Amazon LOL. The colors are vibrant, it keeps me warm, the pattern lines up nicely, and is perfect for a girl's night out to an Xscape concert." β€”news u can use

It's also a decent quality material, as you can't even really see my royal blue-colored bra beneath it unless you look really closely.

    Promising review: "For so very long (years!) I have been looking for a simple A-line skirt like this. One that is a modest length, well-lined, and has pockets that are REALLY POCKETS! My hand actually fits into them! And as an added bonus with this skirt, the material is of a nice quality. I am so very pleased and have bought two of these skirts, one tan, one navy blue. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this skirt." β€”v-kat
