    36 Cheap Things You'll Probably Never Get Sick Of Wearing

    I now declare you and your new oversized blazer betrothed. Mazel.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

     Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.

    1. 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).

    2. A pair of faux leather pumps so you can dress up every outfit you own (over-worn denim included) and keep all your favorite looks on heavy rotation. Throw in the fact that reviewers say they can walk miles (yes, MILES) in these, and you have some new solemates.

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I wore these for the very first time for Disneyland's Dapper Day and I was OVERWHELMINGLY surprised with how comfortable they were! I have never bought shoes on Amazon before and was worried that the fit and or quality would make me regret my purchase. But truly it was far from it. The heel is the perfect height to give you a lift and wide enough for you to feel secure! I'm happy to report that I have no blisters and I can't wait to wear them out again!" —cissyjworstell

    Get them from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and 11 colors).

    3. A pleated midi skirt for truly wearing this one million ways before feeling like you've worn it too many times. And by the time you've reached one million you'll be too old to care, anyway.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "This skirt was absolutely gorgeous. The color was perfect and the material appeared to be of great quality. This skirt will prove to be quite versatile." —Kreativity

    Get it from Nordstrom for $31.60+ (available in sizes 1X–3X and three colors and patterns).

    4. An off-the-shoulder bodysuit, because this'll help you ~shrug~ off worries of ever dressing off-trend. You can wear this bb with jeans, skirts, shorts, YOU NAME IT. You shall never go wrong.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 $18.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 13 colors and styles).

    5. A roomy mini dress with puff sleeves 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 permanently banished your restrictive clothing.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $35 (available in sizes 1X–3X and two colors).

    6. A front-tie, button-down T-shirt in both short and long sleeves so you essentially have a ride-or-die for all 12 months. This'll go out of style when the sky stops being blue.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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 36 colors, in short and long sleeve).

    7. A double-breasted plaid blazer for throwing over anything from dresses to jeans so you always look effortlessly polished, no matter what you pair it with.

    HM

    Get it from H&M for $34.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and two colors).

    8. A silky animal print cami with a lace-trimmed neckline, because you can either wear this alone to fight the heat (it'll feel incredibly light when facing humidity), or dress up your favorite blazer.

    amazon.com

    It comes in several animal prints like zebra, snakeskin, cheetah, and more (as well as other "tropical" patterns).

    Promising review: "This is an excellent dupe for a high priced item I saw at Nordstrom’s. It feels high quality; I ordered my usual size and it fit perfectly. It goes great under a blazer or just jeans. The color is really pretty, just as pictured." —Qui Carp

    Get it from Amazon for $16.88+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 13 colors and patterns).

    9. A pair of relaxed cream pants that'll give both your sweats and jeans a very welcome break in favor of something a little more upscale (but every bit as comfy).

    Asos

    Get them from Asos for $40 (available in sizes 14–24).

    10. A V-neck wrap dress in ~35~ colors and patterns so you always have a stylish but casual option when you want something a littleeee dressier than leggings. Can you cheaply stock up and wear 'em on rotation? But of course.

    Reviewer wearing the short-sleeve dress in yellow
    amazon.com

    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 $20.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and 35 patterns).

    11. A shimmering, acrylic hair clip for keeping your hair out of your face in the chicest way possible. Will this make even your old white tee forever look more exciting? Absolutely.

    Fibs and Fables

    Fibs & Fables is a Black woman-owned business with g o r g e o u s hair accessories that are all inspired by fables and folklore. If you want hair days that say "ethereal," you've found the right place.

    Get it from Fibs and Fables for $16 (available in three colors).

    12. A super-comfy T-shirt dress, because this'll give you 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 in style. This is more forever than your poor plants.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    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–3XL and 28 colors and patterns).

    13. A pair of high-rise, belted faux leather pants that'll make sure your closet can stop playing the blues when you pick the same darn pants every day. These'll help you cheaply mix things up without straying too far from your comfort zone.

    Get them from Target for $36.99 (available in sizes 2–26W and two colors).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are so comfy. I bought these on a lim and prayed they would work for a trip a had a few days later and they were PERFECT! I am curvy so I had a hard time finding the perfect pair and I can’t believe I found them on Amazon. They do run like a boyfriend fit." —Meagan

    Get them from Amazon for $29.75+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and three colors).

    15. A loose-fitting pullover blouse for looking professional from the waist up whenever you have a Zoom meeting. This actually *would* look good with some sweats, which is great, because jeans are not in your current rotation.

    Madewell

    Be sure to enter promo code HIFALL at checkout.

    Promising review: "I am enjoying this shirt a lot. The stand-up collar gives it a classic and slightly dressy look, but the cropped, boxy style is modern and fun. Perfect with cropped pants." —BelleMel

    Get it from Madewell for $32.50 (originally $65; available in sizes XXS–3X).

    16. A faux-leather baguette bag because this may be super on-trend right now, but it's still timeless enough that you can wear it forever.

    Model wearing the black faux leather purse
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a great little baguette bag. I was really loving the '90s style that has came back, but I did not want to pay $$$$ for a trend. So this fit the bill. It's the perfect little baguette bag and fits way more than I thought. It fits my mini wallet, iPhone, candy, hand sanitizer, sunglasses, meds, pens, and nail tools. I love the faux-croc pattern that is on trend right now." —Meg V.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in six colors).

    17. A knit co-ord set that'll prove lounging around the house will never go out of style, especially if you look stylish while doing so. You'll get sick of wearing this soft number when Netflix stops giving us shows to watch.

    Boohoo

    Get it from Boohoo for $24 (originally $40; available in sizes 12/14–24/26 and three colors).

    18. A pair of high-waisted, leopard-print leggings in a variety of trendy patterns so you can join the thousands of reviewers who agree that these are just as good if not BETTER than Lululemon Aligns (right down to the compression) — except these are a *fraction* of the price. Tl;dr: these are getting worn seven days a week, 12 months a year.

    Reviewer wearing the leggings in leopard print
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are the best pair of leggings I own, period. I've been a Fabletics fan for quite a while, but these are the new favorite. I'd say they're similar to the Lululemon Align, but that's not being fair to these leggings. The Lulus were not squat-proof, lighter weight, not a good fit, and didn't look good. These look amazing, feel amazing, and are squat-proof. I'll definitely be ordering more." —Moab reader

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes XS–XL and 24 patterns).

    19. A romantic, cropped top for pairing with the 100 high-waisted pants you own. If there's denim involved, this'll match. Heck, even if there isn't, there's a good chance you'll want to keep wearing this top.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "Such a cute top and honestly super comfy." —Hannacat

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $44 (available in sizes XS–XL and six colors and patterns).

    amazon.com

    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 $17.69+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and nine colors).

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I HATE writing reviews, but I LOVE these booties! They look better than the $90 Chelsea boots I had been looking at from other stores. I was on my feet from 8 a.m.–5 p.m. with my medical students all day, and these were so comfortable, especially on my first day of wearing them. Plus, I got so many compliments! They're 100% my new fall/winter work staple! I purchased the brown and will definitely order more colors!" —Amanda Damman

    Get them from Amazon for $29.58+ (available in sizes 6–11 and in 13 colors and patterns).

    25. A crew-neck sweatshirt that'll be more loyal than Lassie when you wind up wearing this every single day for the next month. Will this ever stop being a comfy fave? Absolutely not.

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

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This dress fits well, looks so cute on, and I got so many compliments. The fabric is nice, not too thick, not too thin...and the fit was absolutely perfect for me. I bought a large and I am usually a size 10 in dresses. I loved it so much, I bought a yellow one!" —Cindy Range

    Promising review: "This is a great top. It's quite nice under sleeveless dresses in the winter, or over a tank. It's very comfortable and cute with high-waisted things, as well. It's not just to wear over a black bra, but I'm sure it's cute that way too." —Jessica

    Promising review: "I get sooo many compliments! I love the way my butt looks in them. I'm a hairstylist and I loved how, after a haircut, I didn't feel itchy because the hair just slid off. They're fleece-lined, too, so that is just a bonus in comfortable land! Love, love, love them — I got a size 3XL and they fit perfectly! I'm usually super nervous about ordering pants online, but this was a win for sure." —M. Slotterbeck
