    Promising review: "Omg, I love this bag. It's sturdy, super spacious, and water-resistant. I'm a pedestrian and bike commuter, so I need a decently sized bag to hold my lunch and book and life, basically. This holds everything I need neatly, without being huge and in the way. I got caught in the rain immediately my first day with it, and everything inside stayed dried and the bag itself was unharmed. Not to mention it's AMAZING to look at! I've gotten so many, 'OMG THAT BAG!' comments, it's incredible. I get excited about it again every time though. This is for sure my favorite bag." —Molly Louise

    11. A pair of lightwash "mom" jeans that'll quickly replace your go-to black jeans — or at least be added to your heavy rotation. Affordable denim that's actually loose and comfortable? Take. My. Money.

    Promising review: "I am100% satisfied walking out with them. They're fitting me like the designer made it exclusively for me. I returned the mom jeans I got from American Eagle. 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. Never had a chance to find the one I desired before. I ordered the size blindly ( sing my intuition), and it worked. Highly recommend." —Vera

    Promising review: "I was worried this would be pretty small since it's one size, but I normally wear an XL and it's still oversized on me. It's surprisingly warm. I was looking for an oversized cropped sweater and this is exactly what I wanted! Shipping was really fast, too!" —Morgan Jade

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99 (claims to fit one size; available in seven colors).

    14. A sheer statement top to instantly update all your going-out outfits — aka no more "I have to stay in because I have 'nothing' to wear" moments.

    Promising review: "Okay so I definitely made sure to read all the reviews before purchasing this coat. I’ve always wanted a leopard print coat and for the price it ALMOST seemed too good to be true. It wasn’t BUT you definitely need to size up. I ordered a large and it’s perfect. I am 127 lbs. and 5’3 but I have broad shoulders so I already have to size up in coats/jackets, meaning I'd normally get a medium. Considering the price and the quality, I am so happy I got this jacket. It’s so soft and perfect for either layering and wearing over a shirt/sweater." —Isabelle Lara

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in sizes 2–12 and four styles).

    16. A pair of checked leggings that'll put your old black yoga pants to SHAME. Can they make all your sweaters look this trendy? I think not.


    Get them from Boohoo for $10 (originally $25; available in sizes 12–24).

    17. Lace-up combat boots with cushioned footbeds (hello, all-day comfort), because reviewers swear these look and feel just like pricier Doc Martens. Same style for a quarter of the price? Add. To. Cart.

    Promising review: "LOVE THESE BOOTS. I’ve always wanted Doc Martens, but couldn’t afford them. I love these because they are literally Docs without the brand. They’re incredibly comfy. I ordered a size 8 (what I typically wear) and they fit just as I expected. I usually order boots a little bigger so I can comfortably wear boot socks, which I would recommend you do with these. Overall, I am incredibly happy with this product." —Diana

    Get them from Amazon for $45.99 (available in sizes 6–10.5 and two colors).

    18. A zebra-print overall dress you can toss over all your super old tees (or turtlenecks, blouses, sweaters, you name it) as an easy way to update anything and everything.


    Get it from H&M for $12.99 (originally $34.99; available in sizes 0–14).

    19. A long hoodie dress so all your dreams come true — to have a way to live in a big, cozy sweatshirt while still looking fashionable. AND it has pockets. I'll pass the tissues.

    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).

    Get it from Free People for $49.95 (originally $88; available in four colors).

    21. A pair of fleece-lined faux leather leggings for giving you an easy edge on cool weather dressing. They'll upgrade all your favorite sweaters (even sweatshirts!) and make sure the lack of comfort isn't what sets your curfew. Though we're still going home early — we are who we are.

    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).

    22. A distressed sweatshirt that'll go out of style when I stop wasting all my money on takeout. So, never.

    Promising review: "This is by far one of my favorite Amazon clothing purchases. The sweater material itself is soft and thick, and the quality of the design is great. Pair this with over-the-knee boots and you have a great fall/winter look. After wearing this out for one night, I received a handful of compliments. I highly recommend this dress." —Brittany

    Get it from Amazon for $28.89+ (available in sizes S–XL and five colors).

    24. A pair of (truly) high-waisted yoga pants with chic split hems so feeling lazy every morning suddenly has its advantages. Your jeans are about to spend a longggg time in the drawer once you realize how good these look with every kind of top.


    I have these myself and wear them an unholy amount. They're *super* soft, fit perfectly (if you like compression leggings and yoga pants, these are a great choice), and actually look dressed up — I wear them with both my sneakers and combat boots!

    Promising review: "These pants are great for running around town with a long sweater and boots. The fabric is incredible — so comfortable yet super supportive. I wore them with a pair of ankle boots and they were super cute!" —Lysalu

    Get them from Athleta for $49.99 (originally $98; available in sizes XXS–XL in regular, tall, and petite, and four colors).

    25. A colorblock knit cardigan to make your days more colorful, even when we have a month full of gray skies. Though you will obviously keep your black leggings on repeat.

    Promising review: "This cardigan is one of my favorites. It is so soft and looks great with jeans and shorts. I wear it a lot and always get compliments! Great price." —Kelli Mack

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

    26. A lace-trim cami for something timeless yet trendy to throw on every time your friends finally convince you to go out. Your bed will still be there when you return, I promise.

    Lane Bryant

    27. A floral lace bralette that'll feel every bit as fancy as For Love & Lemons, but without having to say ta ta to your savings.


    Promising review: "I had been searching for a cute lace bralette for a while. This one is great. It is so much better than others that are way more expensive and the lace is actually very beautiful and classy." —Mariana Flores

    Get it from Amazon for $18 (available in sizes 30A–40D and six colors).

    28. A pair of high-waisted flare knit pants, because these'll feel infinitely more comfortable than usual jeans *and* look a heck a lot trendier.

    Get them from Urban Outfitters for $49 (available in sizes XS–XL and five patterns).

    29. A striped knit sweater so you can effortlessly brighten all your ensembles — yet it's still simple enough to wear a million different ways.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this sweater. The colors are great and it’s much softer than expected! And I’m someone who’s very picky about how a material feels on my skin. The sweater is lightweight, but still warm." —Avalon

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and six colors).

    30. A chevron shirt dress to shock the heck out of your coworkers when you show up in something other than jeans. Surprise! We own more than one outfit.

    31. A pair of high-waisted leggings for joining the reviewers who RAVE that these are every bit as soft (if not softer!) than high-end leggings — including LuLaRoe and Lululemon! Welcome to year-long snuggles for your bum., Amazon

    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).

    33. A pleated polka-dot skirt with POCKETS, because this'll be an easy go-to no matter the season. Wear it with tights, booties, sandals, heels, it doesn't matter. Talk about versatility.

    Promising review: "This is a great, lightweight skirt. It's versatile and can be dressed up or down. The best part is that it has POCKETS! Very flowy and fun. It fit perfectly in the waist (I wear mine high waisted) and is ankle length on me." —Jessie

    Get it from Amazon for $15.86+ (available in sizes S–2XL and five colors).

    34. A pair of belted velvet leggings so you can spend all of eternity living in leggings, but still look extra fashionable. Miracles do exist.

    & Other Stories

    Get them from & Other Stories for $49 (originally $99; available in sizes 0–10 and two colors).

    35. A faux leather watch to rely on a *timeless* statement piece you can wear every single day to update any old outfit. No styling effort required.


    Promising review: "This is an awesome watch! I wear it every day for work, and it goes with all of my outfits. The design and rose gold touch makes it look more expensive than it actually is!" —GraceyGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 13 colors).

    36. A cotton crewneck tank for wearing alone or layered under your favorite sweater to make it *extra* soft. I do believe you just found your new best friend.


    Promising review: "This is the only tank on the planet right now that I have wanted to buy! It is a perfect length, fabric that is not see-through, and has a cute scoop neck with good coverage at shoulders-not a bare tank. I am a M most often, but preferred the sizing of the small. I’m stocking up on this one!" —PCa7

    Get it from Madewell for $12.99 (originally $18.50; available in sizes XXS–3X and five colors).

    37. Pointed, sparkling mules that'll help your closet shine just as ✨brightly✨ as the Saks shoe department without dimming your bank account.

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and two colors).

    38. A pair of high-quality polka-dot tights, because these'll actually *last*, instead of ripping the first day you wear 'em. Your dresses are about to get the easiest upgrade of their life.


    Plus! They're made from 99% recycled materials and designed to feel comfortable *and* resistant to tearing.

    Get them from Rachel for $17 (available in sizes A–D).

    39. A rib knit maxi skirt with a subtle slit so you can add a basic to your closet that's so darn reliable, you'll wonder how you ever survived without it. A piece that goes with everything AND is on-trend?! Nobody pinch me.


    Promising review: "This skirt is amazingly soft, not see-through as far as I can tell, the slit up the side isn’t too high, it’s just perfect. The ribbing is subtle which is nice as well. Easy to dress up or down. I’m 5’4-ish and it hits just above the floor but I’ve found that it’s easy to fold over the waistband if I want the hem higher." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.30+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and three colors).

    40. A smocked peplum top to feel casual, but look fun and upbeat. Who hit snooze about 15 times this morning? Not us.

    Promising review: "My snakeskin-print bodysuit is hands-down the best bodysuit EVER. The mock neck is a detail I tend to love, and this one doesn’t disappoint. The real win, though, is the material; it is so soft and has the perfect amount of stretch. It’s incredibly comfortable aaaaand it’s only $12!" —Michele The Beauty Snitch

    Get it from Amazon for $7.38+ (available in sizes S–XL and 10 patterns).
