    Promising review: "I have another shirt that's almost identical to this one from a high-end brand, and I love this one more. The fabric is very soft and comfortable. The fit is just right and the black is super dark and didn’t fade in the wash. Going to buy more!" —Vilma

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 33 colors).

    2. And a faux-suede miniskirt you can wear that blouse with, or any basic long-sleeved black shirt for that matter!,

    Promising review: "I love this skirt so much! I got a large (150 lbs, 5'4") and it fits me perfectly. I've had this black skirt for around nine months now and it has become a staple in my wardrobe! It has very VERY small pockets, but pockets nonetheless, and it's very comfortable. The zipper is high quality, the material feels expensive, and I haven't noticed any fabric shrinkage or color fading! For me it hits around mid-thigh." –liv

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and18 colors).

    3. A denim overall dress so you have something comfy to throw on over your fall sweaters, and voilà — you have a very cozy outfit for the day.

    Promising review: "This looks better/more expensive in person! Love it! It's so cute and has that ’70s vibe. The waist is pretty loose in the back, but you can't tell from the front. I'm 5'7", about a size 8, and got a medium, and it hits mid-shin (pretty much looks exactly like the picture). I could see this working for plenty of body types!" —CP BK

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in two washes).

    4. A sweater with a knotted back and color-blocked bold colors you'll want to wear every day for style and comfort.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these jeans! I will say that I usually size up in the Perfect Vintage due to lack of stretch but these felt much stretchier than the usual Perfect Vintage fit. They are super comfortable and the perfect trendy jean for fall/winter." —TRAVELER123

    Get it from Madewell for $128 (available in sizes 14W–28W, 23–32, and in petite and tall sizes).

    Reviewer wearing the wine red dress

    Promising review: "Wore this dress for Thanksgiving and I loved it. It’s cute. It’s comfy and it makes me look good. You have to play around with the tie in the front so it doesn’t look so bunched, but that’s minor. I already ordered another one in black." —Gabi

    Promising review: "Girl, friend, nonbinary peep, bro, these leggings are your holy grail. Everyone at my holiday party wanted to know where I got them. I had to send the link to my work friends and my extended family. These leggings are comfy, you can move well in them, and they're cute with any oversized sweater. It's like wearing really fierce pajamas." —Kelsey

    Reviewer wearing the orange print floral print casual party dress

    Promising review: "The fit was perfect. Perfect length. Touched right at the top of my foot which was exactly what I wanted. The material is higher quality than what I thought it would be. Seems like it will last. Cut a little low. It has deep pockets, which is amazing. I will definitely be a repeat customer. I got so many compliments and people wanting to know where I purchased it. I may just get one in every color." —TracyJ1986

    a model wearing the button up in burgundy

    Promising review: "Cute. I purchased black, white, and green. Love the green color. I wanted to wear it casually. It’ll be a nice work shirt and it isn’t see-through! This style is oversized. Size down if you want a more fitted look." —Husky Mama

    Get it from Target for $15 (available in sizes XS–XXL and five colors). 

    14. A luxuriously soft wrap you can throw over a basic long-sleeved T-shirt and wear it as a shawl or a scarf — either way, it will be the perfect outfit accessory!


    Promising review: "I was honestly surprised at how lightweight this is. It's also very, very soft to the touch. I figured it wouldn't be warm enough, but I got chilly and wrapped the shawl around myself. Within two minutes I realized that my shoulders and arms were toasty warm. I didn't think something so light could be so warm. Treat yourself to one. It's not very expensive and it keeps the chill out." —Susan Goldstein

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in 11 colors).

    15. A cropped long-sleeved shirt serving the black-and-white cookie vibe or celestial look you need in your life. I have this shirt and it is one of my faves — I love the stripes underneath, and it's super easy to mix and match this top!

    20. A velvet tunic dress in a trendy deep green or red hue you'll feel your best in, according to satisfied reviewers.


    Promising review: "Super comfy. It's very good quality, which surprised me. It's one of the hidden gems of Amazon. I ordered the biggest size they had as I thought it might run small, but I definitely could've gotten away with my true size. Regardless, it's roomy and very warm." —Brooke B

    Get it from Amazon for $29.98+ (available in sizes S–4XL and in five styles).

    Promising review: "Literally the most expensive thing I own. If my house catches on fire, I'm grabbing this jacket and then my boyfriend. I searched for several months for the perfect moto jacket, and honestly, even the ones in the $200–$300 range just didn't fit right (and I thought THAT was too pricey!). This one is perfect. It's a forever piece." —GIRLINAUSTIN

    Reviewer wearing the floral wine long-sleeve casual dress

    Promising review: "OK, so first and foremost, I am absolutely floored by how cozy this dress is. It fits very nicely and swings away from the body at the waist. I adore the silhouette this gave me. The material was a little sheer, but it was cozy and very soft. Also, it has POCKETS! It was so convenient to be able to carry my phone around. It was very nice." —Kayla

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 38 colors).

    24. A perfect little pumpkin dress that'll have you winning best-dressed at the pumpkin carving contest this year, which *should* be a category, IMHO!

    Promising review (for the coat): "OBSESSED!!! Exactly like a coat from Urban Outfitters except at a fraction of the cost. It's super comfy and warm! Love love love it! It feels expensive and is super cute. You don't have to spend so much money on trendy items — it's so not worth it when you can find cute dupes." —Vanessa

    29. A plaid lapel-collared coat so you can look your best and stay warm as the days get colder. Reviewers say you'll be raking in the compliments in this piece!

    a reviewer wearing the coat with black leggings and boots

    Promising reviews: "I get so many compliments whenever I wear this coat. It always ties my outfits together and makes me feel spruced up. The weight is really versatile, too! It was a godsend when I went to a convention in San Diego. I could wear it over my sleeveless dress in the air-conditioning or outside walking by the water and feel very comfortable. I wore it over long sleeved shirts and sweaters with boots in the fall and winter and felt super cute. It's held up well and I couldn't be happier!" —Noneya

    Get it from Amazon for $45.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and five prints).

    30. And Doc Martens platform boots I personally swear by. These will give you a little lift, and take any fit to the next level — and they are ultra durable!

    Harper Hendrickson, Doc Martens

    FYI — these do take quite a while to break in. I wore mine on my daily long walks for a month straight, and now they are comfy as heck, but they did bruise and blister my feet a bit in the process. The look is worth it IMO, and they are slip-resistant — they stopped me from falling in my stairwell on a rainy day, something I can't say for my Vans slip-ons. The zipper also makes them super easy to get on and off!

    Get them from Dr Martens for $200 (available in sizes 5–14 and two colors).
