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: "I love these and they fit true to size. I wear them to work for nine hours a day with skirts or pants and also out to dinner and my feet haven't been sore yet.

I am also due in September with my first and I will be nursing, so this will be perfect for that as well. And once it gets colder I can just throw on an oversized cardigan or a denim jacket!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 22 colors, in short and long sleeve).

    23. A striped mini skirt so you can prove that looking très chic doesn't have to require restrictive bottoms. Not when we have pumpkins to pick.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and six colors).

    Promising review: "The print of these pants are gorgeous! I was afraid that these wouldn't be very stretchy with the type of material that these are made of, but these are SO COMFY and they have a great amount of stretch to them. They're true to size. Love, love them!" —Indiana

    Get them from Torrid for $38.28 (available in sizes 12–30).

    28. A pair of faux leather loafers in a wide variety of styles, because keeping your piggies comfy is IN. Now you can affordably stock up to keep this trendy style *and* their double-padded memory foam footbeds on rotation.

    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. Behold, I found these and they are magical! They have such a lovely cushion and the sides of the shoes are so supportive. Last but not least, they look great on my feet." —Sarah Harris

I was not expecting that I could brave the snow with this jacket, but I was so warm and comfortable in this jacket, I haven't even had the need to bust out my heavy duty winter coat because this is warm enough. The best part is that this jacket is SO much cheaper than every other teddy jacket out there, and still stylish and comfy. I also love that the pockets are quite deep, I was able to fit quite a bit into the pockets which is super nice." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in sizes S–3XL and 12 colors).

    31. An off-the-shoulder sweater dress so you can actually ~bare~ going to work, instead of watching Hocus Pocus for the millionth time. At least now you get to show this off.

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes S–XL and three colors).

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 13 colors).

    35. A high-neck swing dress for getting used to a whole new level of ~comfy chic~ dressing this season. I KNEW you could be rewarded for never wanting to wear actual pants.


    Get it from Asos for $45 (available in sizes 12–26)

    36. A sheer mock-neck top so you can *shine* all night when you don't feel suffocated by your going-out attire and are not freezing in a tank top. It turns out you DO like to dance when you can move freely.

    Promising review: "I needed a cute shirt to go out in at the last minute and was so happy to find this on Amazon. I've seen similar designs on some of those trendy Instagram boutiques and this is pretty much the same design for a better price.

    J. Crew Factory

    Get it from J.Crew Factory for $26.50 (originally $39.50; available in sizes XXS–3X and four colors and patterns).

    38. A plaid shirt dress that'll get you used to a frequent pattern of compliments whenever you show this off. AND you'll be unbeatably comfortable the whole time — unreal.,

    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).

    Get it from Mango for $29.99 (originally $59.99; available in sizes 10–18 and two styles).

    42. A knit, tie-waist dress so you have something to meet you in the *middle* whenever you want to look extra chic, but don't dare to sacrifice warmth. This + tights = still cozy.

    Promising review: "This fits great and is comfortable. I’ve ordered it in two colors and will order in more. A scarf and nylons kept me warm in 40 degree weather. I got many compliments." —Kudos
