I wanted to have a pair of mom jeans that fit me perfectly like this for a long time. I went to big brand boutiques and thrift stores to find a jeans like this.

    Promising review: "This sweater dress is everything my lazy dreams are made of! I want it in every color! It’s perfectly long enough to wear without leggings, but looks great with them!

    Promising review: "I adore these shoes. I have had a difficult time with loafers in general: they often do not give the support my feet need even though my heart longs for a good, affordable loafer.

    Promising review: ""I am in love with this bra! It looks just like the picture — beautiful! No more ripping my bra off when I get home! I have had it on for six hours today and I forgot I had it on! I have been searching for a bra like this my whole life, even spending up to $100 at Nordstrom and Lane Bryant, and even after getting measured by the 'expert,' my bra still sat in my drawer after one wear. I am going to get a different color every payday! I actually got a little teary-eyed, that is how frustrated I had been with bras!" —Sjh

    Promising review: "The cut is nice, the bottom is loose and flowy, the sleeves don't cut into my arms, and the neck line falls far enough from my neck that I don't feel like I'm choking. PLUS, the material is amazingly soft and good quality (not see-through at all)." —Ashley

    Get it from Nordstrom for $14.49 (originally $29; available in sizes S–XXL and three colors).

    38. A jersey turtleneck for having an incredibly comfy staple that you'll never get sick of — wear it under blazers, sweaters, get it.


    Promising review: "I fell in love with this jersey. It is so silky — there is no friction when worn layered. I bought one to see if I would like it and and today I ordered eight more. Check out the prices! For me, I bought them mainly to wear this winter with something cozy over them. In the past I have spent up to $50 on jerseys not even this soft.

    AND reviewers swear they're not see-through (even when you squat)!

    Promising review: "Let me start by saying that I never take the time to write reviews — and I purchase half of everything we buy on Amazon. However, as a former LuLaRoe-obsessed mom, I felt compelled to make time to review these leggings. If you are reading this and wondering how these compare to LLR leggings, I am here to tell you I am confident LLR is ripping loyal customers off by charging $25-30+. These leggings are just as soft. They fit the same, if not better. They do NOT PILL if you wash cold and hang dry. I truly feel like I’m wearing 'butter leggings'. The price is obviously better and more fair in my opinion." —Jen Wolfe

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in two size ranges: S–L and XL–3X and 23 colors).

    40. A sleeveless turtleneck, because this'll make you go soft and let it out of the closet whenever it wants.

    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 — 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 $19.88+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 10 colors).
