    Promising review: "I love this outfit. It is comfortable, has great stretch, and looks great. I've worn it lounging around the house and also dressed it up for a date night. It is great for both uses. Be aware that the pants are a little long so if you are shorter, you may have to hem them. I am 5'6" and the pants can fold under my heels." —Taylor

I can't say enough about this gown!" —Atlanta Chic

    BuzzFeed writer Allison Faccenda owns this chic sweatshirt and said: "I recently ordered this on Amazon because I love a good graphic tee/crew and this one looks effortlessly cool paired with jeans and a shacket. I love that the inside isn't fleece, it's actually more of a terry cloth material which is great for layering and will still keep you warm without overheating like fleece can sometimes do." Read more of her sweatshirt review (it's number 16).

    Promising review: "I cannot believe this sweatshirt was only $32. Even for an ‘inspired’ piece. I would pay $50-$90 for a sweatshirt of this quality. The printing on the sweatshirt is a matte finish and is thicker. The writing on the front is raised a little and it adds a good texture. It’s a thicker heavier sweatshirt but not a fuzzy one which I think is good because you can wear it without over heating." —T

    Get it from Amazon for $38.66+ (available in sizes S–XXL and four colors/styles).

They are extremely comfortable — soft and stretchy fabric, elastic waistband, and gently tapered leg to give it some style without being too tight. I get tons of compliments when I wear them to work! I already have them in three colors, but honestly, am probably going to buy some more. These are the real deal!" —Chelsea

    model wears dark blue wide-leg cropped jeans with white Converse high-top sneakers

    Promising review: "My new go-to cropped jean! If you’re a lover of vintage fits, these are a must-try. This is going to sound like a paid review, because I’m so obsessed with the fit of these jeans, but I bought them, love them and bought two more pairs. They are snug on the butt and thighs and widen to a large bell around the ankle. I love the button enclosure, zippers are not as flattering on a rise this high. Love, love, love." —MCP

Finally, the perfect outfit staple for a do-it-all kinda gal." —Sarah

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I’ve been wanting these Y2K style jeans forever, but I could never find my size in the vintage pairs. Or they were entirely too expensive. I decided to take a chance on these and I’m so glad I did! They fit perfect and have just enough stretch. They’re a little bit long but I’ll probably wear chunky/platform shoes with them anyway. Nothing major. I always struggle with jeans gapping in the back and these don’t do that at all!" —ashlei

    Promising review: "I love this vest! It gives me a total vintage look. The sweater itself is already oversized, but I wanted a looser fit, so I went a size bigger, and I am happy with how it fits. Shipping did take longer, but it was very clear at the time of purchase the expected arrival date, so that wasn’t a surprise. I'm really thinking of getting more colors!" —Levi

It's shorter than most tees which I like because I am so short. 5'1" 140 pounds and I went with the large and it was perfect. I wanted a more loose fit. Definitely recommend!" —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "This is a lovely dress that feels a lot more expensive than it looks. I bought it for a wedding and it was the perfect fall dress. Very soft material, well made and doesn’t wrinkle! I’m on the shorter side, and the length is a little more than a tea length dress, but not a maxi. Also the sleeves can be pushed up and will stay in place (great for shorter gals)! The fit is as expected, and I was pleased that it was true to size! Highly recommend this dress!" —Ann Kathryn Polka

I was not expecting that I could brave the snow with this jacket, but I was so warm and comfortable, 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.

    Promising review: "I love this set. The quality is good. The skirt is a bit thinner than the sweater, so I wore Spanx underneath. It’s soft, warm, and cozy. The material isn’t itchy. I will have these pieces on repeat. It’s also Pantone’s color of the year. Buy it!" —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "I bought this tank in two colors and I’m considering buying more! The fit is a little loose in the chest, and I’m not small-chested, so I’ll probably get the next size down next time. The colors are beautiful and the shirt is so soft!
