    1. A pair of knit over-the-knee socks, that'll update the same exact pair of boots we both already know we're going to wear every day. But now we can still switch it up a little.


    Promising review: "If only regular socks fit as well: there's no bunching in the heel. I am 5'2" and these pulled up come to about mid-thigh on me. They're so comfortable, soft and warm. I usually like to be barefoot once home, but I was actually able to keep these on." —pggysu

    Get them from Amazon for $11.90 (available in three colors).

    2. A pair of flared jeans you can pair with anything just as easily as your usual black denim, but these'll give your tops a little more edge.

    Promising review (for the right): "People! I have searched far and wide for a pair of jeans that actually FIT curvy women. Even though they are stretchy fabric, you are not constantly yanking on them to pull them up. Perfect! Fabulous! I would DEFINITELY buy them again." —Nancy Wilson

    Get them from Amazon: the left for $29.99+ (available in sizes 0-15 and 15 styles) and the right for $29.99+ (available in sizes 16W-24, in short length, and six styles).

    3. A pair of thermal fleece-lined leggings, because these'll protect you from bitter winter weather all season and of course go with everything. I guess these are your new best friend.


    Promising review: "These pants exceeded my expectations. I used them as a base layer for skiing in Colorado in February, and they kept me warm and dry." —S&C

    Get them from Amazon for $13.98+ (available in sizes XS-2XL and 14 styles).

    4. A plaid shirt dress for making sure you become used to a frequent pattern of compliments this whole season. AND you'll be unbeatably comfortable? Unreal.

    Promising review: "OMG, this is so cute. 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 — 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." —news u can use

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and eight styles).

    5. A faux leather buckled skirt that'll make it so easy to look on-trend you'll wonder why you didn't just major in fashion. Clearly you're AMAZING at it.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $19.90 (available in sizes 0X-3X).

    6. A fuzzy pullover so you can upgrade the leggings you've been wearing for two weeks now to your most successful OOTD post yet. The magic of trendy toppers.


    Promising review: "This is nicely loose, comfy, warm, and a soft V-neck fleece pullover sweatshirt. It’s true to size. We’ve had some cooler nights so I took advantage and wore it. It’s perfect for fall weather. I love it!" —Ari

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

    7. A backless turtleneck, because this'll put an end to the life-long debate of "do I look cute tonight and get frostbite, or stay home in my sweats?" Now you stay warm AND look cute out. Or you can just stay home.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $9.99 (originally $39; available in sizes XS-XL and two colors).

    8. A long sweater vest for quickly making the same exact outfits you wore last season look brand spanking new.


    You know what else this has? POCKETS!

    Promising review: "This is exactly as described. The material is good quality and heavy! The pockets are nice and deep so you can actually use them. I'll definitely be buying more colors." —Rachel

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and four colors).

    9. A fuzzy faux shearling jacket that'll upgrade the leggings you've been wearing for two weeks now to your most successful OOTD post yet. The magic of trendy toppers.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-3XL and 13 colors).

    10. A pair of faux leather lace-up oxfords with just the right amount of heel so you look dressed up without having to call it an early night. Unless you just want to go home.


    Promising review: "These fit as expected with lots of room at the toes. Don’t believe for one second these aren’t comfy. I’m a hairdresser: I walk and stand over eight hours a day. These are comfortable enough that at the end of my work day, I have zero discomfort or pain. I don’t typically ever wear a shoe with a heel, so the fact these cause no pain, have a heel, and all of this with the fact I stand all day is awesome. Would recommend." —Ruelle

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes 4.5-10.5 and three colors).

    11. A scalloped cropped sweatshirt, because living in sweats is key and this'll never let people even catch on.


    Promising review: "This lightweight sweatshirt is great! The cropped length is nice and the scalloped hem is fun and trendy." —Joanna Alper

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and six styles).

    12. A ribbed turtleneck dress for being up to your neck in compliments even when relying on just this one dress. Plus, it's subtle enough to wear ALL the time. Believe in the power of this dress.

    Promising review: "I bought one in black, one in purple, and one in blue. I love them all. I get sooo many compliments when I wear this dress. They're not too tight or too loose. I wear them to work in a law office. They're a perfect work dress with a nice pair of high boots." —M. Arab

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 14 colors).

    13. A pair of delicate earring climbers to help those of us who never take our earrings off — now we'll still look polished and on-trend every day.


    Promising review: "I love these tiny little earrings. I received them about a week ago and I never take them out and sleep in them. Honestly I forget they are even in until someone compliments me! My holes are a little stretched out after so many years of heavy earrings, but I haven't had any issues with these sinking into the holes like sometimes happens with smaller studs. I appreciate that the posts aren't so long and that I don't get stabbed by them." —Julie N.

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in 15 styles).

    14. A pair of lacey anti-chafe bands that'll make you feel luxurious AF —you'll also hear the song of angels when your thighs don't rub ALLL day.

    Promising review: "These are a life-saver. I chafe really badly in the summer when I sweat and these are cute, sexy, and 100% prevent chafing. I have gotten compliments on them and people have even asked me where I got them. They stay in place even when you're sweating. I would walk around Europe all day in the summer with these on and had no problem." —Nayara

    Get them from Amazon for $16.95+ (available in six sizes and 15 styles).

    Get it from Nordstrom for $29.40 (originally $49; available in sizes XXS-XL).

    16. A super-comfy T-shirt dress, because this'll be your go-to all year when paired with tights and knee-high boots. And you better bet you'll feel like you're still in your PJs.

    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 $12.98+ (available in sizes S-XL and 21 styles, with short and long sleeves).

    17. A reversible tartan blanket scarf for a) upgrading your usual coat and b) staying cuddly warm even if on the chilliest of mornings. No, you can't go back home yet.


    Promising review: "These wraps are large and so soft! They are thicker (heavier) than I thought they would be, too. They would be a great replacement for a coat when you are just running from your car to the store, or your house. I bought these as gifts, but I love them so much, I am buying one for myself too!" —Rebecca Nicholas

    Get it from Amazon for $15.85+ (available in seven styles).

    18. A chenille sweater that'll make you go soft and let it out of the closet whenever it wants.


    Get it from Asos for $40 (available in sizes 12-20).

    19. A printed button-down maxi dress so you always have a go-to when you need a one-and-done option to leave NOW. Why does the snooze button exist?


    Promising review: "Overall, the dress is very romantic, flowy, and makes me feel fabulous. People turned to look at it wherever I go! It's a great spring, summer, and fall dress. Maybe winter too with warm layers underneath. This dress is pretty enough for a date, an event, to go out and about and turn heads, and depending on the style you choose, is still conservative enough to wear to a place that requires more modesty, like visiting a church, synagogue or temple." —AJB

    Get it from Amazon for $18.98+ (available in sizes XS-XL and 29 colors).

    20. A button-down top with a chic knot, because this'll keep you comfy, plus add a *touch* of polish. Will we be wearing with this at least once a week? YEP.


    Promising review: "I honestly can't believe how much I love this super cute top! It feels wonderful on and looks adorable. I think I will order another to have on hand as a spare in case I ruin this one!" —Slotz

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in five colors).

    21. A satin-y V-neck dress for a sophisticated staple whenever you have more ~formal~ events on your calendar. This'll help you play grownup.


    Get it from H&M for $29.99 (available in sizes 0-14 and two colors).

    22. A set of seamless low-rise underwear that'll mean something very important: never having to think about panty lines again. AKA: LEGGINGS. FOR. EVER.


    Promising review: "I honestly love these. I was so skeptical about buying underwear on Amazon. I could not imagine buying underwear without feeling it first. However, these were a huge success. First of all, they fit extremely nicely. The bum area has great coverage so you don't end up accidentally wearing skimpier underwear than you planned. I absolutely love the feel. They are so soft and comfortable. These are described as seamless and this is very accurate. I appreciate a good pair of leggings and I can wear these underwear with any panty lines (from leggings to skirts, etc)." —Emily

    Get a five-pack from Amazon for $15.59+ (available in sizes S-L and five colors combinations).

    23. A printed midi dress in ~18~ patterns so you can cheaply stock up on a slew of chicly professional go-tos. Heck, get one for Monday through Friday (but Saturday is for sweats).

    Promising review: "I love this dress. It fits just right and is VERY comfortable to wear. I got it primarily to wear to work and still be comfortable around the office. It feels soft, is breathable, and is not see-through. I even felt comfy wearing it around the house after work when I usually am ready to strip off whatever I'm wearing to throw on some comfy laid back clothes." —Alexismd

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 12 patterns).

    24. A faux leather watch, because this'll elevate you to Rolex-level style, and whose *timeless* sophistication will go with every single darn outfit you own.


    Promising review: "I purchased this watch roughly two months ago. Last week I went to the gym and left it in my gym bag. When I got home I threw my clothes in the washer not even thinking about my watch being in there. When my husband went to put the clothes into the dryer he found it. This watch had ABSOLUTELY NO water damage. I couldn’t believe it. I have never left a review anywhere, good or bad. However, I just had to share how satisfied I am with this product." —Lesa D.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 10 styles).

    25. A leopard print knit cardigan for making people go wild for this piece even when thrown over the same leggings you've worn for years.


    Promising review: "The fit for this is perfect and is really comfy. I love how I can just throw this over a t-shirt and jeans and look really cute!" —Amber Watson, Plane Ambition Blog

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 17 styles).

    26. A fashionable blouse with a pretty bow design that'll make sure you can *top off* all your bottoms with something more stylish than just a T-shirt.

    Promising review : "This shirt lives up to all of the other positive reviews! It is extremely comfortable, the dip in the back goes to the top of my bra strap, the bow stays in place, and I love that the sleeves have just a bit of elastic so that they stay in place (but doesn't cut off any circulation or leave marks). You can pair it with jeans and heals for a night out, or a pencil skirt or skinny dress pants for work. You can really make it work for any occasion. I would not hesitate to buy again." —Krystin

    Get it from Amazon for $29.89+ (available in sizes S-3X).

    27. A faux croc leather belt so you can always upgrade your outfits in just a cinch.

    River Island

    Get it from River Island for $28 (available in sizes XS-L and 10 styles).

    28. A three-pack of opaque tights, because these'll prevent you from wearing the same pair of stockings every day until they get holes. Now it'll be these three....


    Promising review: "These stockings are excellent! I am very impressed with the overall quality and the slight bit of sheer. I don't expect these to wreck as quickly as the ones I normally wear. They are also super affordable and cost what I would normally pay for one pair in my local area. I would highly recommend these to any one!" —BriJr

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in seven combinations).

    29. A velvet bow scrunchie for an accessory that'll go out of style when putting your hair up is no longer chic — so never.

    Free People

    Get it from Free People for $18 or three for $12 (available in 13 colors).

    30. A pair of vintage-y round sunglasses that'll always make you look effortlessly cool — key word "effortless." The less outfit planning, the better.

    Promising review: "These look exactly the same as a more expensive version to me! They are really light and I think the quality looks good. They also do a great job doing what they were made to do: blocking the sun. So they are cute and functional. You can't beat that." —NCKofkin

    Get them from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in 13 styles).

    31. A pair of faux suede heeled boots so you can ~kick back~ and relax when it comes to styling outfits thanks to their simple but chic design. Not to mention reviewers say they're actually easy to walk in! Rely on these bbs.


    Promising review: "I love these so much! They are very comfortable and I love the tan color. They are well-made and are extremely easy to walk in." —Mary Bullock

    Get them from Amazon for $37.99 (available in sizes 6-10 and four styles).

    32. A pair of lace-up over-the-knee boots, because these'll give you a ~leg up~ on everyone else before they catch on to one of this season's biggest trends.

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of these boots. I bought them to go with a Halloween costume and honestly wasn't expecting much, but these are nice enough that I will use these for normal wear. I ordered my normal size and they fit well. They were quite comfortable to wear all night on Halloween. I like that the laces make them adjustable for different leg sizes. You can wear them thigh-high or roll the top down a bit as I did if you want them a bit lower." —Alley22

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes 5.5-11 and 11 colors).

    33. A convertible faux leather backpack that can *double* as a crossbody: aka two bags in one. Did you just find your new best friend? Yes.


    Promising review: "This bag is adorable. It’s small yet spacious. It is the perfect size for me. It is very high-quality and my new favorite bag! I’ve been into mini backpacks for a while now, but never found the perfect one...until this!" —Tam Thanh Nguyen

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

    34. A pair of velvet leggings to introduce you to a whole new level of ~lazy chic~ dressing. I KNEW you could be rewarded for never wanting to wear actual pants.


    Promising review: "These are so deliciously soft! Now I know why George wanted to be ensconced in velvet. I could live in these." —Jeri

    Get them from ModCloth for $29 (available in sizes XS-4X and in four colors) or a similar style from Amazon for $18 (available in sizes XS-3X and in 16 colors).

    35. A pair of ankle-length trousers so you always have a no-brainer to turn to in the morning when you need to look *extra* adult.


    Promising review: "What can I say? These are the most comfortable pair of work pants that I’ve had! I love how soft and delicate the fabric is. For the price that I spent, they're totally the best pants ever!" —Nhi Hoang

    Get them from Amazon for $9.90+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in eight colors).
