    39 Things That'll Help You Feel More Put-Together In 2020

    I really feel like 2020 will be the year I don't wear leggings every day. But we'll see.

    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.

    1. A set of Avarelle rounded or extra-large patches that reviewers say blend seamlessly with their skin, meaning you can even slap one on when going to the office, and let it work its pimple-draining magic. In fact, they'll help you totally skip the whole "how to conceal this flaky scar" process.,

    Clearer skin = one less thing to worry about.

    Promising review: "I’ve been experimenting with these for the last month and a half, and I am in love. They are really thin and blend into my highly freckled face incredibly well...I have gone out in public twice with them on, because when I did my last second mirror check before I got out of the car, I didn’t notice I had them on! While they absolutely help clean out the skin underneath, the biggest thing it does for me is stops me from touching my face. When I'm stressed out, I will absentmindedly touch/run my hands along my face and jaw constantly. Now, when I notice I’m doing that, I run into the bathroom and put these on any spots I have. Since they are thin and stick really well, I am able to leave them alone and stop touching my face." —MelsBells

    Get a box of 40 round patches for $8.50 and a box of 8 extra-large patches for $8.50, both from Amazon.

    Valeza Bakolli / Via BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "I am apparently hard on all nail polishes. A typical DIY manicure would last a day or two before chipping. I have tried MANY top coats and DIY gel solutions, but read recent reviews on Seche Vive gel top coat and thought I would try it. I was surprised. I did my nails on a Thursday and they lasted me through Tuesday before chipping. This was pretty amazing." —Mommy May

    4. A printed button-down maxi dress, because this'll become your best friend when you need a one-and-done option to leave NOW. Consider this your savior.


    Promising review (for the dress on the left): "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 them from Amazon: the dress on the left for $18.98+ (available in sizes XS-XL and 29 colors and styles) and the dress on the right for $33.99+ (available in sizes 0X-3X and 19 colors and styles).

    Promising review: "The best item made, since sliced bread. This stuff took off my makeup and mascara with one swipe. It came off fast! I don't know why I haven't bought this stuff earlier. This is way better than makeup wipes, which can irritate your skin. It even takes off waterproof mascara easily. For sensitive skin, this works." —Berlin Wall

    Get it from Amazon for $6.48+ (available in three formulas).

    6. A bodysuit turtleneck that'll give you a) an easy solution to any unexpected ~untucking~ throughout the day and b) a way to stay surprisingly comfy despite wearing something other than sweats.,

And all it takes a few swipes of your fingers.

    Promising review: "I really love this product. I tried this as a sample a while ago and fell in love with it. When I received it the mail I used it right away and could a big difference with my hair. First, it smells really good and second, my hair feels softer. It's like I have new hair, especially if you have dry-ends. This serum transforms your dead-ends and makes them look shiny and softer. But I also spread it around my hair to give it a more shiny look. I'm really happy with this product!" —Lea Carranza

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    8. A pair of ruffled leggings to prove living in comfort will always be *in vogue*. Will you wear these for the next 365 days in a row? Absolutely.

    Promising review: "These pants are so cute! I love the stretchy material, and the cute ruffles at the hems make it look different than any other black plants! They are a bit high-waisted, which I love, and they're opaque enough so you're sure your underwear won't peek through. You can just easily slip these on, and you're good to go! Very comfortable!" —Corinth

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99 (available in XS-L).

    9. A bottle of Fanola purple shampoo, because this'll brighten your blonde hair to fully platinum in just one to three minutes. Meaning: you get to maintain platinum blonde tresses ALL YEAR without a trip to the pricey salon — so long, roots.

    Just don't use it for more than three minutes (once a week), because then your hair will turn lavender (unless you're into that, which some reviewers are!!!).

    Promising review: "I have platinum blonde hair and harsh water. My hair easily gets discolored no matter how little I wash it. I have used a number of high-end purple shampoos and thought they were all great quality. Until now. I didn't realize what I was missing in my life. I left this shampoo on for maybe three minutes and now my hair looks freshly-toned to an icy blonde. I'll never live my life again without this shampoo." —Amazon Customer

    For more info, check out "If You Color Your Hair Blonde, You Need This Purple Shampoo".

    10. An ultra-slim pocket wallet for fitting all your cash and cards without the bulky pocket. Tl;dr: you'll have no excuse to leave your MetroCard in the wrong jacket pocket now.

    Promising review: "My sister has used these in the past and I thought they were cool. I switched my phone case from one with a wallet to a regular one and got this thread wallet with lanyard to wear to a concert so I wouldn’t need to carry a purse. It was seriously the best decision ever. It holds my cards tightly and I don’t have to worry about them falling out. I also used a big bundle of cash and it hasn’t stretched out! That would have been a huge deal breaker and it has passed the test." —MissChellyfish

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in seven styles).

    11. A tube of Glossier Brow Flick that'll simply ensure your caterpillars will always look SO. GOOD. with barely any effort — and it'll look totally natural, thanks to this tool's ultra-fine tip. Bold brows make you feel 🔥; it's just science.

    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 3X and they fit perfectly! I'm usually super nervous about ordering pants online, but this was a win for sure." —M. Slotterbeck

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–4X and four styles).

    Plus! It feels totally weightless and glides on creamy.

    Promising review: "I always exfoliate and use a bit of balm or oil on my lips before using a lip product, because I have those pesky lines that appear, especially with matte (liquid) lip products. But HONEY, THIS SHAWTY GOT ME SHOOK. I tried SHAWTY while not doing my lip prep routine and it still looked beautiful, I am quaking. The tube is small so that you can get the corners of your lips. AND, no need for a lip liner, and I still have pigmented full lips! I think it looks better with wear, even after slightly transferring onto objects." —ssgmermaid

    Get it from Sephora for $18 (available in 24 shades).

    14. A rib-knit sweater dress to fashionably layer over the same old T-shirt you love wearing, anyway. Your sweats could never.

    Promising review: "I love the way this fits and feels. The material is very soft and warm. It's perfect for fall/winter with a t-shirt underneath, leggings, and boots. I like it so much I'm ordering another in a different color." —amkm

    Get it from Amazon for $20+ (available in sizes S–XL and five colors).

    15. A facial hair remover, because this'll remove peach fuzz (if you want to) painlessly (and without paying for a wax). It's gentle, precise, and won't leave irritation marks like most threading or razors. Aka your face will be as smooth as a baby's bottom and you'll never have to drag yourself to the salon.

    It also comes with a nose trimming attachment and is rechargeable!

    Promising review: "I was very skeptical about these portable facial and body hair removers, but I have blonde fuzz on my face that has always bothered me. I have tried waxing and threading that typically leave my skin irritated. I have used this multiple times in my face arms and legs, and I am extremely amazed. There's no pain and it got rid of all the fuzz in minutes. I used moisturizer afterwards and had zero irritation. I have also used the nose hair trimmer piece and got great results. Highly recommend!" —Peter

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in two colors).

    Forever 21

    Promising review: "I got the mustard blazer in 2X (which is my regular size for tops) and it fit just right. It looks great and is comfortable. Size up if you want more of an oversize look for sure. I get a lot of compliments on it. I want more colors!" —Alli G.

    Get it from Forever 21 for $12.50 (originally $25; available in sizes 1X–3X and four colors).

    17. A bottle of Teddie Organics rose water toner spray that'll help you tell redness and oily T-zones to take a hike and leave you with a dewy, refreshed complexion that lasts allll day. You just have to spritz.

    It'll also restore your skin's pH balance and absorb excess oil. It's everything you want your toner to do, except now you can use it WHEREVER. Plus it's organic and suitable for sensitive skin!

    Promising review: "I have very acne-prone and sensitive skin that is pale with pink and red undertones. I break out very easily, and my skin is irritated even by the 'sensitive skin' brands and formulas. I have used EVERYTHING under the sun to aid in redness and sensitivity, and nothing has worked to calm flare-ups like this. I wake up and my skin is glowing and peachy pale, as opposed to red and blotchy. This rose water has not only improved my skin's redness and overall tone, but it has virtually eliminated any signs on acne. I use before I put on my redness moisturizer and before bed as a refresher. I also find myself spritzing at various times of the day, because the fragrance is so pleasant." —Kathy Pancake

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    18. A pair of faux leather loafers in a wide variety of styles so you can learn a valuable lesson: you don't only need to wear sneakers to stay comfy. 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

    Get them from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes 6–11 and 32 colors and patterns).

    19. A cold-pressed rosehip oil to reap the benefits of clear skin without a complicated routine (as if). It'll brighten skin, dramatically reduce stubborn breakouts and pigmentation, and moisturize dehydrated skin by combining antioxidants and essential fatty acids. What an overachiever.

    Promising review: "This is the best stuff I have ever used! I have always struggled with horrible acne, rosacea, scarring, and an uneven skin tone my whole life. I tried everything from drugstore products all the way up to $300 prescriptions for acne and nothing worked for me until one of my coworkers introduced me to this! I use a dime-size portion to cover my whole face at night and about four to five drops to cover my whole face during the day. Within two to three days I noticed a HUGE difference! Needless to say, I will never go back!" —McKenzie

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95.

    Promising review: "Dang these are great socks. I wear them with Keds, Vans, and anything else where I don't want my socks peaking out of my shoes. The secret sauce is the tiny rubber band at the back of the heel. Without it, the socks would continually fall down, ending up in an uncomfortable bunch around my toes. But with the rubber bit they stay put all day!" —CK

    Get a pack of three from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in two sizes and seven color combinations).

    22. A Maybelline BB cream that'll let you skip foundation altogether if you're always running late, thanks to its ability to blur pores, hydrate skin, and give you a ~natural-looking glow~. Go ahead, hit the snooze button again.

    Ignacia Fulcher / BuzzFeed

    It's oil-free and suitable for sensitive skin!

    Promising review: "Unlike other typical BB creams, this product does not create a gray cast. It has very nice, sheer coverage and adds some glow. I use it as a base for my foundation, or I simply wear it alone for a bit of extra coverage on lazy days." —pvandy

    Get it from Amazon for $6.40 (available in five shades).

    23. A duo of 14K gold-plated hoops so those of us who never take our earrings off can still look polished and on-trend every day when just keeping these in.


    Promising review: "I love these earrings! They are very small and simple. They are easy to put in and to take off. I love the minimalist style and these fit the bill. I have worn these earrings every day since February (it is now June 30th). I forget I even have them on. They still look great!" —Kelly Sullivan

    Get them from Amazon for $12.95 (available in three shades).

    24. A bitter-tasting varnish to finally join the thousands of people who have already kicked the pesky habit of biting their nails by using this. It dries clear, but you'll know it's there thanks to its bitter taste. Fresh manis > picked cuticles.

    Don't worry, it's bitter but it's harmless! Totally edible, just unpleasant. It also lasts longer than most drugstore habit-breaking polishes — and works to stop kids from sucking their thumbs!

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing. I've been a terrible nail-biter since I was a young child, and I tried everything to stop. I hated my hands and was so ashamed of how they looked, but I couldn't help it. I tried rubber bands, mindfulness meditation, Pavlov, and all sorts of other 'no bite' polishes that looked awful and washed off too quickly/didn't taste bad enough to be a deterrent. I committed to putting a layer of this on every other day, and it's now been three months and my nails look amazing. The urge to bite has lessened, but I don't think it will ever go away, so I plan to use this polish for years to come. The taste is so strong and immediately bitter, and it really lingers on your lips and tongue for a while. It's an amazing product, and I highly recommend it." —Lydia G Morgan

    Get it from Amazon for $15.50.

    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! The material is thick and warm. I honestly wish everyone offered this style of hoodie! Bottom line: this is an exceptional buy! If I had the money, I’d order it in every color right now." —Carol Jo

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL, two lengths, and 24 colors and patterns).

    26. A pack of interdental cleaners for easily flossing during the day, instead of walking around with lettuce in your teeth. Their wire tips bend for easy access, while the brush heads remove food and plaque without the need for tricky maneuvering., Amazon

    They're also great for braces!

    Promising review: "I’m going to start off by noting that I hate flossing and have probably flossed a handful of times in my life probably after eating popcorn, because I was more annoyed than conscientious. I got these because they were cheap and looked cute and thought maybe they’d inspire me to initiate a dental routine. I like them! They get into the gap between my teeth closest to the gum, and the bristles are gentle and the wire is soft. I did use one brush for all my teeth and will make the pack last a long time." —Greta M.

    Get a pack of 32 from Amazon for $3.85.

    27. A nylon backpack with a trendy pom-pom that'll make you leave the worn-out backpack you've been using since your freshman year of college in 2019.


    Plus, its zipper is facing 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 $24.99+ (available in four colors).

    28. A teeth-whitening pen so your pearly whites are *extra* brilliant — not to mention, it takes little to no effort. And! Its soft-bristle brush is easier to use on uneven teeth than strips, thanks to its 360° application.

    Did I mention it's mint-flavored?! AND reviewers say it doesn't cause sensitivity!

    Promising review: "Due to prior experiences with Crest and other whitening strips, I always deal with tooth sensitivity even after the first use. Naturally now, I only use this pen every other day thinking I was going to deal with the same issue and surprisingly I don't. I actually really like the way it whitens my teeth and love the fact that I'm not dealing with any tooth sensitivity pains." —Claudia Garcia

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $19.99.

    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 $12.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 21 colors).

    30. A pack of tea tree oil-absorbing tissues, because these'll confront midday shiny T-zones head on by absorbing excess oil, controlling shine, AND soothing irritated complexions with bamboo charcoal. Meaning your days of finding tissue stuck to your forehead are over.

    Promising review: "I've had oily skin my whole life and have used countless types of oils blotting sheets because they're life-savers. THESE ARE AMAZING. They're a great deal, big sheets, and they pull out one at a time so easily. I'll never go back to other brands. Give these a try — they're completely worth it. They work well and are easy to use. I have no negative things to say at all." —Kelsey

    Get a pack of 200 for $6.95+ (available in two formulas).

    31. A pair of seamless hipster undies for making this the year we tell panty lines the ~bottom line~: they are no longer welcome to ruin our pencil skirts. Sorry not sorry.


    They have a soft cotton lining and elastic waistbands that'll move with you allllll day.

    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 pant lines (from leggings to skirts, etc)." —Emily

    32. A mini fabric steamer that'll ensure you won't ever show up to work in a wrinkly blouse on top of being late again. The small design makes it easy to use, but is powerful enough to have you out the door pronto. Guess who doesn't look like they grabbed their top off The Chair in the morning anymore?

    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed,

    Promising review: "A picture is worth a thousand words. Apologies in advance if my photos do not do this little device justice. I am beyond thrilled with this little gizmo. It has worked wonders on everything in my closet from delicate chiffon and poly-blends, to heavier cotton and wool-blends. I have even steamed stubborn wrinkles from blazers and purses and linen. I considered purchasing a larger steamer, but they tend to be clumsy, heavy and difficult to maneuver. This steamer is perfect. And for frequent refills, I simply keep a pitcher of water nearby. For the price, you can't beat it." —Savvy Shopper

    Get it from Amazon for $25.97.

    33. A pack of freshening body wipes so you can still smell nice and clean if you don't have time to shower after working out (or you just slept too long). Goodbye, acne-causing bacteria. Hello, lovely-smelling armpits.

    I will NOT be punished for following through on my annual workout. I did a pushup I don't deserve to break out. These soothing wipes feature tea tree oil and peppermint to help you feel refreshed even when you, well, weren't a couple minutes ago. Plus they're alcohol-free and hypoallergenic so they're great for sensitive skin!

    Promising review: "I wish I had a funny review here, but B.O. is no joke! I work out hard, I sweat hard, and sweat stinks! I also run my own incredibly busy business and have two small kids. Every minute of my day counts and showering early in the day is a luxury that I don’t always get to indulge in! But that leaves me smelling 'straight out the locker room' for a large part of my day before I get to shower — no good! Enter these — they're a game changer! I work out, sweat like a boss, wipe down, and voila: no longer smelly! In fact, I actually smell and feel fresh! Big fan!" —Anna Palestis Frenkel

    Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $9.99.

    34. A pair of elastic ballet flats to consistently look polished at the office, minus the *sole*-crushing heels. 2020 is officially the comfiest year yet.

    Promising review: "I’ve been searching for a cute flat that actually stays on my feet and are comfortable — a task that seemed unattainable until these miracles entered my life. They're true-to-size, have comfy insoles, and the straps aren’t too tight or too loose. These are the only flats I’ve owned that didn’t need to be broken in! I'm definitely buying these in other colors." —Legss

    Get them from Amazon for $7+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and 12 colors).

    35. An Alba Botanica night cream, because this'll make clearing your complexion as simple as going to sleep. It'll pick up the night shift so you don't have to by fighting discolored pigmentation and deeply moisturizing so you wake up with a bright, supple complexion.

    Its ingredients like aloe, seaweed, and mango plump skin and drastically reduce dark spots and discoloration. Plus it's 100% vegetarian and cruelty-free!

    Promising review: "I was looking for a night cream to help moisturize my skin during the dry winter months. This cream exceeded my expectations. Although some other reviews mentioned a strong smell, I think the smell is clean and refreshing. I have pretty sensitive skin and am prone to breakouts and unlike most creams I've tried, there was no adjustment period for my skin to adjust to this one. No irritation, no breakouts, and most important, I have smooth, silky, hydrated skin every morning! Will definitely purchase this again." —Amy Greene

    Get it from Amazon for $9.38.

    36. A button-down top with a chic tie knot for still always dressing casually (but of course), plus a *touch* of polish. Can you wear a sports bra with this? You bet.,

    37. A set of double-tipped pointed cotton swaps that'll quickly fix smudged eyeliner or really any mistakes, instead of singing "hello darkness, my old friend" and leaving the messy wings. YOU CAN DO — oh look, you're already done it.


    Promising review: "Honestly, reviewing something like this is silly — but I just love these. I use them all the time. They are great for cleaning up any little makeup mistakes!" —Jeanine

    Get a set of 400 from Amazon for $7.49 (available in two styles).

    38. A sneaker-cleaning kit so you can bring your favorite white sneakers back to practically new. Now your outfits will always look put-together (nothing like super white sneakers to finish off your OOTD) *without* heels.

    You'll get a cleaning spray and brush! They work on really any material, like cloth, leather, vinyl, and fabric, so ALL your shoes can look brand-new.

    Promising review: "I just got this and immediately used it on my dirtiest pair of shoes, and wow, I am impressed! I’ve had these shoes for a little over a year, they are my favorite shoes to just throw on and run errands, so they aren’t work shoes by any means. Just casual day-to-day wear. But I spent maybe 10 minutes per shoe and the bottoms look so much better. I wasn’t expecting them to be perfectly white because they are a year old but I am very happy with how this product has worked. I will definitely be using this product to maintain other shoes!" —Amazon Customer

    40. A winged eyeliner, because this'll cancel smudgy-teared mornings of trying to create the perfect cat-eye by simply stamping on pro-level wings. Will you get all the credit? Obviously.


    This miracle worker has two sides: one is a triangle-shaped tip to create the perfect winged tip, while the other effortlessly glides to complete the look.

    Promising review: "I have very hooded eyes and this still works great! Make sure you give extra time to dry. It’s humid and 85 degrees today and I went to a party, spent time outside, and sweated, and this eyeliner didn’t budge! Also, I love how I can do cat eyes for the first time in my life! I’m not great at doing makeup, but this made it easy! I'm very satisfied!" —hklep

    Promising review: "I wore this coat to my brother-in-law’s investiture and received so many compliments! What a gorgeous coat! It is beautiful and timeless. I will have this for years to come. The faux fur is so extremely soft and it kept me nice and warm. Very elegant!" —Andislist

    It's formulated with goji berry extracts and Haloxyl to hit the refresh button on tired eyes — who went out last night? Um, not us.

    Promising review: "This is the best under eye concealer ever. I am 67-years-old and have tried them all. I wouldn't go out without applying this concealer. It blends nicely with my foundation and has never caked. The sponge applicator is soft and makes application quick and easy. I will continue to use this product and hope, like many products I've used over the years, that it doesn't get discontinued." —Morty

    Promising review: "I love how soft and cozy this cardigan is! It seriously feels like you are wearing a blanket 🤗. It’s not super heavy which makes it perfect for fall and early winter. You can easily layer this cardigan over your favorite T-shirt, bodysuit, or dress. The quality is amazing and it fits TTS." —Southernblush_

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 14 colors and styles).

    You can use it to both straighten and curl hair, features ceramic tourmaline plates to avoid heat damage and smooth frizz, AND its bristles and cool tip makes sure you don't burn yourself.

    Promising review: "I am amazed! I have natural, fine, and very straight hair. I have never been able to hold a curl in my hair without heavy-duty hair spray, and even then the curl would fall and not hold. That has all changed now, as this curling iron is awesome. I am completely blown away as to how much curl it gives me — and that they last! I couldn't be more pleased." —Margaret

    Get it from Amazon for $22.59+ (available in two sizes).
