    1. A pair of linen-cotton drawstring pants you can wear with *literally* anything and still look effortlessly cool, no matter the occasion.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "Bought these last year in green, happy to see them back this year so I bought the pink and black. Can't beat the price! Often linen pants are really baggy but these are cut straight and are really flattering. I find them to run a little bit large so went down a size from my normal. They are a little scratchy but after using fabric softener it was not an issue. They wash really well and the quality is decent." —Lisa

    Price: $14.50 (originally $59.50, available in sizes 00-14 including petite, and six colors)

    2. Love those cotton-linen drawstring pants? Well, lucky you —they have them in shorts, too!

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "For someone who doesn't like short shorts, these are perfect. The elastic waistband makes it so you can wear them higher or lower on your hip depending on how you like them to sit. The length is great and the fit is looser than say a jean short. They are not tight, rather loose around the thigh. Perfect casual summer shorts." —KAria

    Price: $11.50 (originally $39.50, available in sizes XXS-XL, and five colors)

    3. A leopard calf hair belt that looks great with jeans, shorts, or even a dress.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "This belt is so cute. Great leopard print with a nice calf hair texture. I wear size 26 in jeans and ordered the XS/S, Perfect fit." —Scout

    Price: $29.50 (originally $59.50, available in sizes XS/SM-M/L)

    4. A ruffle-trim tank sweater so you can still feel cozy this summer (without the extra sweating).

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "This is a super cute top for summer! The woven material looks beachy and can be dressed up or down. It isn't heavy or thick, so it should work out even for the warmest of summer days." —Katie

    Price: $16.50 (originally $59.50, available in sizes XXS-3X, and three colors)

    5. A pair of low block heel-sandals that are actually really comfortable.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "I'm hesitant to order shoes online, but I've been searching for good, versatile sandals with a bit of a heel for a while. They're surprisingly hard to find! These fit the bill, and surpassed my expectations: beautifully made, good quality, neutral color, comfortable, and enough of a heel without hurting my knees and hips. The material is supple and soft, with enough give that it moves with your feet and won't dig in, but not so soft that they'll stretch. Can be easily dressed up or down. Will be wearing these a lot!"

    Price: $29 (originally $98, available in sizes 5-12, including half sizes)

    6. Cotton sleep shorts perfect for lounging, cleaning, Zoom-ing, studying...whatever you're up to at home.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "Great all around lounging piece. I purchased in additional colors after my initial purchase. Enough coverage to wear around the house with a cute tee! Great for the beach over a swimsuit too." —Poppygirl

    Price: $10.50 (originally $29.50, available in sizes XXS-2X, and seven patterns)

    7. A scalloped linen-cotton skirt that'll make a great transition piece. Wear it with a sweater and flip flops or even a blazer and T-shirt.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "This is now the fourth color in this skirt that I have. I absolutely love them! The elastic waist AND pockets are every teacher's dream! It doesn't matter if I ate too many chips from the workroom either because the elastic band makes this super comfortable. I will literally buy this skirt in every single color! Highly recommend!" —Shopaholic87

    Price: $19.50 (originally $69.50, available in sizes 0-12, and four colors)

    8. A best-selling cotton tee people are truly obsessed with. Don't believe me? You gotta read the reviews.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "I love these! Ordered the gray and after I got it went back for the black and navy. I was looking for a loose-fitting V-neck so I purposely ordered one size bigger than I normally do. It fit perfect for me! It is long enough to make it a little baggy but not at all sloppy. The V-neck on me was a perfect cut, not too low so I can get away without wearing a tank/cami underneath and can just wear a bra. Definitely recommend for a great basic everyday tee." —KatieLeona

    Price: $12.95 (originally $24.50, available in select sizes XXS-3X and 11 colors)

    9. Blue-light blocking glasses that are as practical as they are stylish. They pair perfectly with whatever outfit you're rocking and can help reduce headaches or eye strain from staring at screens all day.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "These glasses are great for the price! I don’t get eye strain or headaches anymore! The side of the glasses are tight behind my ears, but they have loosened up after wearing them." —Emily

    Price: $17.50 (originally $29.50)

    10. A ruffle-trim crepe tank top because business casual doesn't have to be boring — or black.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "Y’all need this in your closet! Literally the classiest piece of clothing ever. Can be dressed up or down. I paired it with some patterned shorts and it screams spring! The neckline is a bit odd if buttoned all the way but just leave a few undone and you’ll love it! 10/10 get it." —Jcrewaddict

    Price: $16 (originally $54.50, available in sizes 00-16, and six colors)

    11. A pleated midi skirt that will be best friends with your graphic tees and denim jacket.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "I first purchased this skirt in subtle pink and have recently purchased the rest of available colors (green and blue) including the new pink striped one for spring/summer. This is even more comfortable than the other pleated skirts offered in the past and is very well made. It is a little longer for that perfect ladylike look and twirl. The elastic waist lays flat, and is comfortable, it has also washed well without twisting." —Kimberly

    Price: $19.50 (originally $49.50, available in sizes 00-24 including petite, and three colors)

    12. A pair of denim shorts with a button fly and raw hem because it's already that sunny time of year.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "These are my go-to shorts now! I love them! They are very comfortable and great for minimalist style." —Brandyb

    Price: $16.50 (originally $59.50, available in sizes 24-33)

    13. A summer straw hat that, at this price, you basically have no excuse not to get.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "This hat fits really well, and has enough structure so that it keeps its shape without being too floppy and making it hard to see. It traveled well in my suitcase and when I accidentally dropped it in the pool it dried back to its original shape. My favorite sun hat by far!" —Cwalk

    Price: $14.50 (originally $49.50, available in two colors)

    14. Just a great pair of high-rise skinny jeans with a raw hem and button-fly so perfect you'll find yourself slipping them on day after day.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "I am 5-foot-4 and weigh 140. Bigger legs and bum. Usually, wear a size 30 in jeans but I took a chance and I bought a size 28 and I am glad I did! These fit like a glove! They are very stretchy! I would size 2 down because these are incredibly stretchy. I am also short and these don't drag they hit at my ankle perfectly. All in all these are awesome, I might actually buy a size 27." —Lucia

    Price: $29.50 (originally $79.50, available in sizes 24-35)

    15. A simple cotton sweater that's a must-have any time of year. Better yet, it's machine washable!

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "I love this sweater! The cotton stays pristine wash after wash, and I much prefer it to the merino wool version, which I find tends to pill and attract debris. This is a great layering piece in the current cold weather and will be wearable into the spring season. Thanks, J. Crew!" —Tori

    Price: $19.50+ (originally $59.50, available in sizes XXS-2X and 10 colors)

    16. A perfect-fitting wrap dress you'll feel totally comfortable wearing.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "This dress does not disappoint. It is very packable. My new go-to!!" —Deboris

    Price: $22.50 (originally $79.50, available in sizes XXS-XXL, and three colors)

    17. A metallic-trim cork clutch that, with its removable strap and neutral tones, is sure to become your "It Bag" of the season.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "Love this purse that can be used as a clutch or shoulder strap purse. The cork makes it unique and it can be casual or dressy." —Marie

    Price: $20.50 (originally $69.50)

    18. A crewneck tee of your dreams – there are quite a few color options, so it's a tee-rrific time to stock up.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "I'm always on the hunt for a good T-shirt. I stumbled across these at the store, bought one and fell in love. So I went and bought three more. They are so comfortable. I love the loose fit, but not too loose. The crew neck is exactly the way I like it. Lately other brands call there shirts crew necks when they're really more like a scoop neck. But not these! They're perfect in every way. They're now my go-to everyday favorite shirt!" —Amber

    Price: $14.50 (originally $24.50, available in sizes XXS-2X, and 11 colors)

    19. Thick hoop earrings that will instantly elevate any look.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "Love these gold hoops. I can't stop wearing them! They go from dressy to casual so easily, and are the perfect width and size, plus at such a great price!" —Cimberly

    Price: $6.50 (originally $26.50, available in two colors)

    20. A cotton cardigan to wear with shorts, dresses, chinos, sweatpants or literally anything else you can think of. This sweater is a great layer for spring.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "I found this cardigan to be lovely. It fits true to size and has a classic silhouette (not close fitting and not boxy). I did find the sleeves to be about one-two inches to long and I have average-long length arms. Nothing that can't be fixed by simply a roll or tailor. Good mid-light weight textile quality. I've worn one sweater several times and haven't noticed any pilling fuzz. I couldn't decide on which color I liked so, I ordered five for this spring/summer. Thank you, J. Crew Factory for offering so many beautiful color choices at such a nice price point." —SeveaUpNorth

    Price: $16.50+ (originally $59.50, available in sizes XXS-2X, and 10 colors)

    21. A timeless cuff bracelet that makes accessorizing easier than ever.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "I saw this bracelet on a store associate and asked where she got it. She said here! and that it was still available online. I then remembered seeing it online but it looks way better in person. It's shiny all over and seems very well made. My wrist is 5 1/2 inch around so I felt it was just a little loose that it may come off. Another reviewer said it could be bent a little so I did that, very gently, and it worked. It now feels safe to wear. I like how the little cubed ends look when you're wearing it." —kdallas

    Price: $9.50 (originally $19.50)

    22. Chino shorts so perfect, you'll be tempted to buy them in every color.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "I was not expecting to like these shorts as much as I do. They’re of good quality, a perfect fit, and not too short. They are, in fact, the perfect length. I’ve got some long stems and was worried these would fit like Daisy Dukes, but no, they’re perfect. These shorts are great. I will happily purchase more." —Gillian

    Price: $14.50 (originally $39.50, available in sizes 00-14, and eight colors)

    23. A pair of slide sandals that are sure to become a weekend staple.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "I ordered the cognac leather pair first and loved them so much that I ordered the cheetah print calf hair. Both are good quality and so comfortable with the cushioned sole. I got my usual size 7, and they fit great. The straps hold on your foot easily and have a little elastic piece for stretch when walking. They will be great for casual Fridays at work and out on the weekends. show less." —Tasha88

    Price: $14.50 (originally $49.50, available in sizes 5-12 including half sizes, and three colors)

    24. A textured tie-front top that looks way more expensive than it actually is.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "I was apprehensive when I ordered this, hoping it looked as good on me as the picture. I was pleasantly surprised. It fits so cute without making me feel like I’m trying to hard to look young. Perfect piece." —Cherrymom

    Price: $9.50 (originally $49.50, available in sizes XXS-3X, and six colors)

    25. A pair of timeless leather ballet flats because your current pair probably needs an update anyway.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "To me, comfortable is extremely important when it comes to shoes. These are very comfortable - the leather is very supple which I love. They are a great staple to have and go with everything. I’m going to order another color. I usually wear a 9.5 and I do in this shoe as well. True to size." —Drummer

    Price: $23.50+ (originally $79.50, available in sizes 5-12 including half sizes, and three colors)

    26. High-rise girlfriend chinos you can wear with flats on the weekdays and sneakers on the weekends.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "Ahhh!! Been waiting for a good chino from J. Crew Factory and these take the cake! Material is perfect for this time of year. It says they're cropped but I'm 5-foot-8 and they hit right at my ankle. Would recommend these 100%." —Ashley

    Price: $19.50 (originally $69.50, available in sizes 00-24, classic or petite fit, and five colors)

    27. A perfect-fit button up that can be styled in oh-so-many ways.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "Love this color as well as the material and find that though I have a large chest it does not pull, is now a basic in my wardrobe!" —bookie22

    Price: $29.50 (originally $59.50, available in sizes XXS-3X)
