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

    1. A front-tie T-shirt in both short and long sleeves that'll essentially serve as your ride-or-die for the rest of your life. This'll go out of style when the sky stops being blue.,

    Promising review: "This is a great top! I ordered the oatmeal color first and loved it so much, I ordered the light pink color. The fabric is soft, breathable, and not too thin or thick. Nordstrom has these tops for almost three times as much so this is a great deal. It's long enough in the back to cover the bum if you’re wearing leggings." —Kelley G.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 22 colors, in short and long sleeve).

    2. A pair of scalloped ballet flats so you can put your ~foot down~ on boring options and easily look polished every day — all while keeping your piggies nice and comfy.

    Promising review: "These are super cute and fit very well! I look forward to wearing them out! For wide feet, I looked over the recommended size and it said order 1/2 a size up. I did as such, and it fits just fine!" —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and 20 colors).

    3. A sleeveless floral romper, because I know for a fact that rompers learned a lesson from the dinosaurs and will never go extinct. All hail the one-and-done outfit 🙌.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $25 (available in sizes 1X-3X and two colors).

    4. An off-the-shoulder bodysuit for ~shrugging~ off worries of dressing off-trend whenever you go out. You can wear this bb with jeans, skirts, shorts, YOU NAME IT. You shall never go wrong.

    Plus! Reviewers say it's made of a swimsuit-like material so it feels supportive and structured!

    Promising review: "It is perfect! I have been looking for a cute yellow shirt for the longest time and this bodysuit is amazing! Since it has that bathing suit feeling, it hugs your body really nicely and you don't even need to wear a bra!" —Tiara Rivera

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and eight colors and styles).

    5. A V-neck wrap dress in ~28~ colors and patterns that'll prove to be a sophisticated choice for any and every occasion. Can you cheaply stock up and wear 'em on rotation? But of course.

    Promising review: "I was hesitant to order a dress online. I am always looking for casual dresses, but it is hard to find ones that have a nice hemline or don’t pull at the bust. This dress is perfect on all counts. The colors are vivid, the print is crisp, and the fabric soft and stretchy but not see-through. The waistband hits just above my natural waist, the skirt drapes softly along my shape, and the hem hits perfectly at the mid-knee. I am C cup and the neckline isn’t too low or tight. Love, love, love!" —BJR

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 28 patterns).

    6. A belted wrap top so you can look *très chic* even when pairing it with your usual blue jeans. Who knew looking polished could always feel so comfy?


    Get it from Nordstrom for $20.98 (originally $35; available in sizes XXS-4X).

    7. A pair of delicate 14K gold-plated earrings, because these'll make sure you still look polished and on-trend every darn day if you're one to never change your earrings. It's you two (three?) against the world now.


    Promising review: "Between all my earrings, I have nine piercings. I was looking for small, cute, and cheap earrings to keep in my ears — I've lost some good diamonds to the ocean! I haven't experienced any discomfort with these earrings, although I've had them in for around three weeks. They are so delicate and they just add a nice touch — especially if you have a lot of earrings like me. For the price, these can't be beat!" —Cella

    Get them from Amazon for $12.95+ (available in 15 styles).

    8. A high-neck bralette for wearing both by itself and layered — its racerback provides support, while its stretch cotton fabric promises all 👏day 👏 comfort 👏. Aka you'll never want to take it off....and I suppose there's really no need to except to shower.


    It's basically the most stylish, softest sports bra you'll ever wear.

    Promising review: "I adore this bralette! It’s the perfect option for when you don’t want to wear a bra or a shirt. It has a built-in bra which is very comfortable and allows no slippage to happen. It's a very soft material and the cute tie allows it to be so versatile. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE." —PHOEBSTERR

    Get it from Aerie for $12.47 (originally $24.95; available in sizes XXS-XXL and three colors).

    9. An A-line pleated midi skirt with POCKETS that'll update all your usual T-shirts to make dressing up easier than ever. Heck, this may feel better than wearing your jeans — which is why they're being replaced.

    Promising review: "I absolutely adore this skirt. This is the fifth one I’ve ordered. I regularly get compliments on it and occasionally make others jealous when I twirl and I show them it has POCKETS too! It’s work-appropriate, as it hangs to my knees, and can also be worn in social settings. The material is sturdy, the color is vibrant and doesn’t fade, and it’s never bled onto any of my clothes." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL and nine colors).

    10. A belted corduroy dress so you can easily transform whatever you pair this with for a totally new no-brainer outfit. One dress = unlimited possibilities.


    Get it from H&M for $39.99 (available in sizes 0-14).

    11. A nylon backpack with a chic pom-pom, because when does a stylish backpack stop being useful? Answer: never. As long as you have things to carry, this'll be your number one.


    Plus, the zipper faces your back to protect you from theft!

    Promising review: "I ordered this bag for my trip to NYC and it was absolutely amazing! The fact the zipper opens in the back is amazing! I got the large one and was able to put my iPad in, plus, my wallet, and anything I need on a daily basis! I thought I would only use it for travel, but I have not been able to stop using it! I love it!" —5617024657

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in four colors).

    12. A button-down floral dress that'll stick by your side for seasons to come, thanks to its versatility. Tights and boots? Check. Sandals and sunnies? Double check. This just put an official end to your constant "what the heck do I wear?!".

    Promising review: "I loved my first dress so much, I bought a second the next day! I get compliments the very first time I wore it. The elastic band is super stretchy. I recently tried on about 20 dresses at a store and this one is easily my favorite of them all." —WeenLover

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL and 23 colors and patterns).

    13. A pair of high-waisted light wash jeans so your closet can stop playing the ~blues~ when you pick the same damn pants every day. These'll help you cheaply mix things up without straying too far from your comfort zone.

    Nasty Gal

    Get them from Nasty Gal for $26 (originally $60; available in sizes 0-20).

    14. A sheer floral topper, because this'll consistently make all your outfits flourish with minimal effort. I suppose this is what happens when we finally try colors other than black and gray.

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS. I am plus size and was worried that this wouldn't be long or flowy enough, but based on a couple other reviews I rolled the dice because the price was right. It is so cute — long enough that I could wear it with leggings and a longer tee if I wanted to. The color is great. I have gotten plenty of compliments on it each time I've worn it. It is going to be a staple in my wardrobe to throw over a tank." —acern

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and 31 patterns).

    15. A pink denim jacket for a rosy update to the classic jean jacket — it's subtle enough to go with everything, but'll bring a welcome pop of color to even your go-to leggings. Talk about an upgrade.


    Get it from Target for $34.99 (available in sizes 0X-4X).

    16. An asymmetrical bodycon dress that'll prove its worth in versatility. Throw it on with sandals and a jean jacket for a casual approach, or boost it with some heels. Your old LBD could NEVER.

    Promising review: "I rarely write a reviews, but this dress just surprised me in many ways. It’s simple, but when you put it on it’s gorgeous! I don’t understand how it fits like a glove. I’m a hard to fit but I think no matter what shape you are, as long as you buy the right size, you're going to look amazing! Its very well-made. The fabric is very comfortable, somewhat stretchy, but maintains its shape!" —Lhynne Limbo

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and five colors).

    17. A dotted wrap midi skirt so dressing up will never *ruffle* your feathers again. This'll go with everything and make getting ready so simple, you'll wonder why you ever felt so attached to boring black denim.


    Get it from Missguided for $30 (available in sizes 12-20).

    18. A pair of high-waisted yoga leggings with pockets (!!!), because these'll give high-end loungewear a run for their money. Reviewers agree their quality match, if not surpass, that of $$$ brands. Meaning you can cheaply stock up and live the rest of your days in pure comfort.


    Promising review: "I never take the time to write reviews and I order off Amazon all the time. I am a Lululemon fanatic and particularly love the Align pant (which retails for $85+), but can't afford or rationalize buying tons of them. I'm always on the hunt for a good yoga pant and I found these the other day and ordered them in size small, red. These remind me of the Align pant so much! They are cut almost identical. Mine are not see-through, even when squatting. I love, love, love these and am going to order several more. I actually kinda want to cry thinking about how much money I wasted on the pants at Lululemon when these are an excellent substitute for a fraction of the cost. If you're a Lulu lover, you should really give these a chance!" —Ariel Parker

    Get them from Amazon for $7.02+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and 40 styles, with and without pockets).

    19. A mock-neck sweatshirt for proving your Fairy Godmother WAS listening. Starting today you can indeed wear sweats all the time and still look stylish. I'll pass the tissues.


    Get it from Nordstrom for $20.98 (originally $35; available in sizes XXS-4X and two colors).

    20. An off-the-shoulder maxi dress with side slits that'll reveal not all basics are boring. In fact, this one is pretty darn sophisticated and will inspire at *least* 10 years of OOTD posts. Did I mention it has pockets? Add. To. Cart.

    Promising review: "Wow I love this dress! It’s just so effortless, comfortable, and flowy! I got this in a large, which I usually wear. I’m about a size 14 with 38DD and this was roomy enough, but not baggy. Pair it with some heels to fancy it up or sandals for a more casual look. I want to get this in more colors! I really like how it has the double slits on both sides to keep it airy and light. And hellooooooo, it has POCKETS! 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻." —Ann D.

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

    21. A pair of high-rise striped knit pants so you can ditch your overused denim in favor of bottoms that are not only MUCH more relaxed, but will give all your ensembles a boho flare. Mission c-o-m-p-l-e-t-e.

    Free People

    Promising review: "These are just as pictured. They're a light material which is perfect for cool, but definitely not cold weather. There aren't any buttons so they're easy to slide on and go." —Awillsbowers

    Get them from Free People for $29.95 (originally $88; available in sizes XS-L and two colors).

    22. A loose-fitting jumpsuit for throwing on just ONE piece to look totally put-together. Warning: you may enter a life of hitting of snooze thanks to how easy this'll make getting dressed.


    Promising review: "I got this to wear to a party and had several people ask if it was from Urban Outfitters and got lots of compliments. It is ridiculously soft! I wore it with a white tank and was very comfortable!" —tarzhay lover

    Get it from Amazon for $22.39+ (available in sizes S-L and 23 colors and styles).

    23. A distressed denim skirt that'll continue to stay in style since its origin: 48 B.C. Ok this is a slight exaggeration, but you get it. If you don't already have a jean skirt, it's time to join the party — they're never leaving.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $39.99 (originally $59; available in sizes XS-XL and two colors).

    24. A button-down midi dress so you can take the perfect easy-breezy Insta every darn summer. This'll always make you look carefree, even as you become more and more of an adult 😱.

    Promising review: "The fabric is very stretchy; the buttons are for looks only. So, if you’re worried about it gapping in the chest area, don’t. I think this would look great on everyone!" —Wednesday Wood

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S-2XL and 42 patterns).

    25. A pair of wide-leg gauze pants, because you deserve to look polished at the office *without* restrictive trousers. These'll make your legs feel FREE while you count down the hours in your cubicle.

    Get them from Torrid for $26.39 (originally $58.90; available in sizes M-6X).

    26. A short-sleeved bodysuit for the epitome of a reliable style. It's basic, cute, and will cancel any fear of your outfit becoming *untucked*. It's truly a solo dream team.

    Promising review: "This is shockingly awesome piece for the price! The material is thin and very soft, and the fit is excellent. The XL is an excellent and comfortable fit. The snaps do not rub or pinch. It's great for layering or with a high-waisted skirt. I am very pleased and will be ordering more colors!" —Shannon

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

    27. A pair of flowy, floral shorts that'll quite possibly lead the revolt against uncomfortable jean shorts. It's time to spend your summers without the plague of restrictive clothing.


    Get them from Tobi for $20 (originally $52; available in sizes XS-M).

    28. A striped cardigan sweater so you can chicly accessorize your favorite leggings without ever putting much thought into it, at all. Dare I say, this is more rewarding than sweatshirts.


    Promising review: "This has become one of my favorites! Thanks to its multiple colors, it's so easy to create many different outfits. It goes with just about anything. It's a medium weight, which makes it perfect for just about any time of year. I can dress it up to wear to the office or pair it with jeans, and it still looks fabulous! It's great quality and is very comfortable." —Chris B

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97+ (available in sizes S-XL and seven colors and patterns).

    29. A knit A-line midi skirt with 🚨hidden pockets🚨, because you can truly wear this one million ways before feeling like you've overworn it. And by the time you've reached one million you'll be too old to care, anyway.

    Get it from ModCloth for $29.99 (originally $45; available in sizes XXS-4X and three colors).

    30. A backless crochet halter dress for never maxing out on how many times you can wear this. Wedding? Yep. School. You bet. Just to take a "candid" picture? Absolutely.

    Promising review: "This fits PERFECTLY! My biggest fears were either the chest would be too large or the dress would be too long and need to be hemmed. In the end this breath-taking dress needed no alterations! The material is light and the knitted design is very pretty. A part of me wants to wear it forever! I definitely recommend." —DetKim

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and four colors).

    31. A linen-blend blouse that'll give your jeans a whole new life when you add this (gasp!) professional twist. No one will ever know you actually pull all your clothes from a pile — not when you keep this on heavy rotation.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $13.99 (available in sizes S-L and three colors).

    32. A super-comfy T-shirt dress so you have something a little more ~upscale~ to throw on when paired with anything from tights to sandals. And you better bet you'll never even WONDER if this is on-trend. This is more forever than 70% of marriages.

    Promising review: "This is a great dress! It is long enough that you wouldn't need to wear leggings with it if you didn't want to. The fabric is thick enough, so it's not see-through, which is great!" —TLSmile

    Get it from Amazon for $20.91+ (available in sizes XS-XL and 17 colors and patterns).

    33. A top-and-trouser co-ord set, because the power of matching outfits will never get old. Polished ensembles in under two minutes? Be still, my heart.

    34. A pair of heeled Chelsea boots for winning in just about every category: comfort, style, and versatility. Prepare to put your *foot down* on blowing your budget every season — these are here to stay.


    Promising review: "Honestly, I don’t usually write reviews but felt inclined after ordering these shoes. They are sooo cute! I am a hair stylist and took a chance and wore them to work on day one and can not believe how comfortable they are. Also, I got so many compliments! I am going to order another pair shortly. For the price, these are a steal!" —Erin Brown

    Get them from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and seven colors).

    35. A floral blouse that'll fit nice and loose so dressing a lil' fancier never feels like a punishment. So long, starched tops. You won't be missed.

    Old Navy

    Promising review: "I love this shirt! It has just the right amount of flow while still showing off your figure. The material is the perfect weight — not too heavy and not too light." —Katie

    Get it from Old Navy for $22 (available in sizes $37.99; available in sizes 1X-4X).

    36. A graphic T-shirt so you can continue to live your life in casual tees — except now you'll always discover a pattern of compliments.
