    Promising review: "Oh my goodness I love these pants so much! 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

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes XS–3X, in sets of two, and 29 colors).

    3. A ribbed halter top with a built-in bra that'll keep your chest comfy and supported sans underwire. This wardrobe essential is anything but basic, because it can be worn alone *or* under any cardigan, flannel, or lightweight jacket.

    Klassy Network

    Klassy Network is a woman-owned business that sells stylish blouses, swimwear, eyewear, and their well-known Brami top, aka a top that provides amazing support and doesn't require a bra underneath!

    My colleague Chantel Turner loves Brami tops and said: "*I* wish that every top I owned was a Brami top so I could trash all of my traditional bras. I own a few of their shirts in different styles and they are absolutely amazing! Somehow the shirts provide the support of a bra without you having to actually wear a bra. It feels extremely comfortable." Read more of her Brami top review (it's number 17).

    Promising review: "I totally love these Brami Halter tops. Being a cup size C; not having to wear a bra was almost impossible for me. With the Brami I am so happy that I do not have to use a bra plus still keep my boobs in place. These are so versatile that I used them every where, all the time, even to do yoga. I just love them!" —Klassy Network

    Get it from Klassy Network for $39.99 (available in sizes XS–3XL and five sizes).

    4. A puff-sleeve top because you need something a bit fancier for occasions where you want to wear your lived-in pair of jeans, but don't want to pair them with a T-shirt. Ruffled sleeves, a stretchy fabric, and dotted detailing will upgrade your outfit without feeling too tight on your chest, back, and arms.,

    Promising review: "I usually don't write reviews (I tend to forget), but when I received this item and tried it on, it was perfect! The size fits me well. The ruffled sleeves were my absolute favorite. I bought this for my job, which is business formal attire, and this will look great with a pencil skirt." —Yoli

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 26 colors and sleeve styles).

    5. A fleece hoodie dress that's basically a dream for anyone who loves loungewear that is a step-up from typical comfy clothes (looking at you, college sweatpants!) This cozy number is super soft, has pockets for essentials, and will make you look très chic when you're staying indoors.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "Holy comfy! I bought this for lounging around my home and staying warm and I couldn’t be happier with it! I live in Maine and keep my house cool. This sweatshirt dress thing is nice and thick (think old school sweats), roomy, and just perfectly comfy. Best money I’ve spent all year." —Shelby Briggs

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in sizes S–3X and 10 colors).

    6. Some 7/8 watercolor leggings you'll want to slip into for your next yoga session at home. Soft material gently hugs your bod, a seamless silhouette hides underwear lines, and to top it off, a gorgeous blue hue will make your next workout ensemble ~ohmmazing~.


    What's also great about these leggings is that they have a small back pocket! It's perfect for storing your phone, keys, or credit card while you work out.

    Promising review: "I saw these in an Athleta ad that was sent to my house and I knew I had to have them! I just love the colors in them! They remind me of a swirled painted Easter egg. These tights are so buttery soft and hold you in at the waist without being too tight." —Athleta Customer

    Get them from Athleta for $89 (available in sizes XXS–3X, petite and tall inseams, and three colors).

    7. A pair of baggy overalls for days when you want to wear a T-shirt with something that doesn't require zippers (looking at you, denim shorts!). This jumper will make getting dressed a breeze, because, all you need is a top to layer underneath. Plus, it has roomy pockets!

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I'll admit it, I love overalls. For me, they're comfy and great on weekdays and weekends and, with these in particular, you can dress them up or down. I get compliments every time I wear them and others always ask where I bought them. My favorite things about these: the loose fit; the linen look and feel; the black color has yet to fade despite numerous washes, the ease of care, and, they are so comfy." —seattlehouse

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (available in sizes S–3X and four colors).

    8. A two-piece midi dress outfit so you don't have to waste time putting together an outfit when it's sunny and hot outside. Instead of trying to match tops and bottoms for hours, you can slip into this gorgeous, breathable duo and head out the door.,

    Promising review: "I got so many compliments on this outfit. I loved it so much, I bought two more in different colors! The material is breathable and comfortable. The style can be fun or classy and the package came quick! It's not too tight and not too loose. Highly recommend." —Robin Ramirez

    Get it from Amazon for $18+ (available in sizes XL–5X and in 32 colors and patterns).

    9. A backless lace bodysuit that ~has your back~ when you want to feel a little fancy in denim, faux leather leggings, and skirts. Lace detailing and comfy sleeves will be perfect for days when it's not too warm or too cold.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and three colors).

    10. Straight-leg jeans so versatile and comfortable, you'll live in them all spring long. An elastic waistband makes it so easy to tuck in all types of shirts (blouses, tanks, tees, you name it!), while a relaxed design highlights your legs without feeling too clingy. Are you ready to give your skinny denim a break now?

    Promising review: "I'm over the moon happy with these jeans. They're super comfortable, I love the waistband. The length is the perfect ankle length for me, which is rare with Everlane. Their inseams tend to run short for me. The weight of the denim is perfect, I will definitely be able to wear these through the summer. My only regret is that I didn't buy the black ones in my size while they still had it in stock." —Everlane Customer

    Get them from Everlane for $60 (available in sizes 00–16 and three washes).

    11. A velvet dress because you can *get dressed up* with minimal effort and still be comfortable. It's very soft and basically goes with every type of shoe (flats, peep-toe heels, and so much more). You'll love wearing it to formal occasions, even if they're on Zoom.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    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

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes 14–22 and nine colors).

    12. Wide-leg pants that are very soft on your legs, have a beautiful pattern, and still feel like your fave pair of comfy pants. This wardrobe staple, which can basically be worn with any type of bodysuit, T-shirt, or blouse, will score you so many complements.

    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

    15. A white mini dress just begging to be part of your spring wardrobe.

Knot it in the front for a cropped look or leave it undone for major shacket vibes.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    Some reviewers recommend sizing up if you prefer a looser fit!

    Promising review: "I love this romper, I bought for a tropical vacation. It has a light and flowy material. I tied it in front and back and it’s like two rompers in one! I will say it’s a little bigger on me than I would prefer, but that’s because I’m always in between sizes. But because I want to be comfortable on vacation, I’ll stick to a medium. Overall highly recommend! Super cute!" —Michael Tomshack And Jillian

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 17 colors).

    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
