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).

    14. An oversize T-shirt, because this'll make a trendy statement even if you got ready five minutes before running out the door (which you absolutely did).

    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

    Promising review: "I never knew a pair of pants could make me so happy. You can dress them up with heels, or boots, and voila! You have the most perfect party pants ever. Or you could dress them down with a tee and a pair of all white sneakers. The color and material are perfect for creating a festive holiday outfit. It’s safe to say the obsession is real." —Aliciaraeeee

    Get them from Madewell for $79.50 (available in sizes XXS–XXL).

    It changes colors based on lighting!

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

    22. A puff-shouldered cotton top for adding a fashionable twist to your basics collection. Translation: you can still live in plain tees, but now you'll have some extra ~drama~.


    Promising review: "This is a winner. I love the sleeve detail, it makes this staple a little bit special. Great quality, the fabric has nice stretch and it’s not too thin.

    Get it from Nordstrom for $29.40 (originally $49; available in sizes XS–XXL and four colors).

    23. 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 want to come up with a creative ensemble. This + tights = perfectly polished.

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 11 colors).

    24. A ribbed velvet turtleneck, because this'll make planning trendy outfits take all of two seconds. Throw on your black jeans and booties, pull this over your head, and voilà: you're practically a trendsetter.


    Get it from AdditionElle for $22.49 (originally $44.99; available in sizes 0X–5X and two colors).

    25. A pair of faux leather loafers in a wide variety of styles that'll teach you 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).

    26. A silky midi skirt so you can easily dress up your go-to chunky knits and sneakers (or if you're feeling extra, booties). I do declare this the day we all learned we don't actually need to wear jeans every day of our lives.


    Get it from Express $59 (available in sizes XXS–XL).

    27. A long flannel button-down with pockets (!!!!) to try a new approach to our usual checked toppers. But we will still continue to wear the same leggings every day.

    Promising review: "I am 5’10” and have problems with tunic length tops being long enough to wear with leggings. However this top is the perfect length! It washed well and did not lose shape or shrink. Love the deep pockets on the front!" —PAnthony

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

    28. A slouchy blazer for going for the ~structured look~ without any of the, well, structure. This'll feel more like a sweatshirt than any restrictive clothing, but give your closet a refined upgrade.

    Nasty Gal

    Get it from Nasty Gal for $36 (originally $90; available in sizes S/M–M/L).

    29. A plaid shirt dress so you can get 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).

    30. A backless sweater dress, because this'll provide all the coziness of your usual oversized knit + legging combo, but with a stylish improvement. Don't worry, it'll still take you two minutes to get dressed.


    Get it from Boohoo for $16.80 (originally $42; available in sizes S–L and five colors).

    31. A pair of fleece-lined faux leather leggings that'll give you an easy edge on cool weather dressing. It'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).

    32. A Blank NYC hooded, leather jacket to update your outerwear game with one big yet approachable change: a unique color. It'll still go with everything, feel almost like a sweatshirt (ty, hood), and instantly make you look effortlessly stylish.


    The hood is removable!

    Promising review: "I love this jacket sooo much. The hood makes it perfect to wear with jeans and a tee. Or dress it up by taking the hood off. My new favorite jacket!" —JennaDeJong777

    Get it from Nordstrom for $98 (available in sizes XS–XL and two colors).

    33. A bodysuit turtleneck for a) having an easy solution to any unexpected ~untucking~ throughout the day and b) staying surprisingly comfy despite wearing something other than sweats.,

    Promising review: "This is beautiful, warm, and an amazing fit!" —shanequa bradley

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

    34. An A-line plaid skirt with POCKETS so you can introduce all your plain T-shirts to their new new home — it's with this. If only it were that easy for all of us to find a ~great match.~

    Promising review: "This skirt is great for winter, fall, and spring! I got many compliments on it. The fabric is sturdy and it fits so nicely. I may order another in a different pattern. Great skirt!" —Lisa O.

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and eight colors).

    35. A velvet, wide-leg jumpsuit, because this'll make getting ready to go out at night a heck of a lot less annoying or intimidating. This + comfy heels = you're done.


    Get it from Torrid for $62.23 (originally $88.90; available in sizes 10–30).

    36. A pair of platform lace-up shoes that'll help you ditch squeezing heels in favor of a style that's just as sophisticated, but actually comfortable. Your feet will quickly learn dressing up doesn't actually mean pain — cue sigh of relief.


    Promising review: "I normally don’t leave reviews for shoes, but these are one of the exceptions where I enjoy them so much that I have to leave the review. I have a wide-width foot and it is very hard to find a pair of shoes that doesn’t require break-in period. This dress shoes not only cute, fashionable, but also surprisingly very comfortable. Right now it’s 4 p.m. and I still have the shoes on my feet. Good gracious lord. I might as well get another pair in red, because I love them too much!!" —Holly D.

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes 5–9 and four colors).

    37. A super soft pullover to stay true to yourself and wear sweats to work — except now you'll be recognized as the style icon you DESERVE.

    Old Navy

    Promising review: "This sweater is my new favorite. It’s unbelievably soft, and fits so well. It’s thick, warm, and I love the winter white." —Beebs

    Get it from Old Navy for $49.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and four colors).

    38. A jersey turtleneck for keeping an incredibly comfy staple on heavy rotation all darn season. Wear it under a blazer, with a layer-able dress, over your go-to jeans, WHATEVER. There's nothing this won't make look a little extra polished.


    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. These are well-made." —Cheyenne

    Get it from Amazon for $16.50 (available in sizes XS–XXL and three colors).

    39. A pair of high-waisted black jeans so you can learn a secret about dressing up: if you wear fitted black denim, you're already halfway there. Not only will these make your usual tops feel a little more structured, but reviewers LOVE them for showing off their curves and 🍑 so you'll want to rely on these until the sky turns blue.

    American Eagle

    Promising review: "When they say high waist, they mean HIGH WAIST! I LOVE these jeans. They are extremely comfy and look so great! They completely form to my body and look amazing! I’m ordering another pair right now! I’m obsessed!" —Sydney
