    From a Bridgerton-esque maxi dress to stretchy jeans that'll feel like leggings, you might want a thing or two from this line-up.

    Is there anything better than a fun graphic tee? In my opinion, no one does it better than Femfetti, a lifestyle brand run by a squad of incredibly creative women in Columbus, Ohio. This shirt is both sturdy and soft. It washes well and looks cute on its own or paired with an oversized cardi.

    Get it from Femfetti on Etsy for $25.60+ (available in sizes S–4XL).

    2. High-rise Levi's jeans you'll wear for years to come — at this price tag you might just want to treat yourself to multiple pairs.

    Amazon, Melanie Aman / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed editor Melanie Aman is having a love affair with these jeans:

    "These jeans! Where do I start? Well, first of all, they are surprisingly comfortable. They've been my go-to pair since pre-COVID times. I have a bad habit of eating to the point of being uncomfortably full (I just like food, OK?) and these pants never cut into my hips or stomach when I looked about three months pregnant with a baked mac 'n' cheese baby. Now that eating in restaurants isn't really a thing, I've still gravitated toward these jeans on days when I just want to feel...normal... I can sit at my desk while wearing them (sometimes I even sit cross legged) and I totally forget I'm wearing denim. And unrelated to their comfort, I love them because 1. they cup my butt nicely and don't make it look like a pancake and 2. they're the perfect length for my annoyingly short legs."

    Get them from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes 23–34 and eight colors).

    3. A floral lace dress for when you finally convince your friends to let you host a Bridgerton-worthy ball on Zoom.,

    Promising review: "Wow!!!! I thought for sure this was going to be some cheap dress that doesn't look at all like the pictures. It looks exactly like the pictures and the quality is amazing!!! Beautiful dress. Love it!" —Justin

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 10 styles).

    4. A pair of high-waisted flare pants that'll let you show off the fact you're kind of a diva (in a good way) without diverting from your need for being comfortable at all times.,

    Promising review: "I wore these pants on a first date and they made my booty and thighs look amazing. I also wore these pants to my office job and my coworkers went crazy over them. I literally emailed and texted shared item and copied links to these pants all day. They are so soft. You want to touch them all day and they make great sleep pants." —Christina Tahey

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and in 16 colors).

    5. A fuzzy V-neck popcorn sweater you'll find yourself as infatuated with as the smell of the freshly popped snack.,

    Promising review: "I got the pink and it's a very pretty color. I love the sleeves on this sweater. They are bell-shaped and have a straight wide cuff at the bottom. Very classy looking. Oh, and did I mention how soft it is? I'm going to enjoy wearing this. If you decide to order, just know that it is very wide so it may feel a bit oversized. Personally, I like that look." —Dst

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99 (available in sizes S–XL and eight colors).

    6. An A-line corduroy skirt you can either pair with your favorite booties for chic fall/winter fashion statement or wear as-is on cooler spring and summer days.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed,

    This skirt was there for me in my time of need! I had a broken foot, so when last-minute plans came up and I was in need of a cute outfit (that didn’t require trying to pull pants on over my cast) I took a chance on this lil’ number. And I’m so glad I did! It’s stretchy, soft, and made my butt look fabulous. Def ordering in another color.

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 10 styles).

    9. A water-resistant puffer coat, so affordable and functional you can easily treat yourself to multiple styles without breaking the bank.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE this jacket! It has become my winter staple. It is so warm and so comfortable. I’ve been wearing it all fall and winter and receive so many compliments on it. Beats my $150 Patagonia jacket by far. I will definitely be getting more colors." —Jennifer W.

    11. A playful dress that cuts above the knee for when you want to show a lil' leg but don't want to upset your traditional grandma with an outlandish outfit. Chilly where you live? Fear not, pair it with your favorite tights and wear it all year long., Amazon

The joggers I received were lined in fleece, not terry, but I actually prefer fleece. These are a great weight and very soft and cozy. I am super impressed and would highly recommend!" —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "This skirt is beautiful with soft layers, giving it a delicate sophisticated feel. It has enough layering to not be see-through.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in one size and 21 styles).

    17. An teddy bear lapel coat that'll ensure you're snug as a bug when you head outdoors while also looking like a fashion influencer. Goals achieved.,

    Promising review: "Beautiful color, super cute coat. Quality is great. There are two buttons that close, but I don't think it is designed to be the warmest in super cold climates. Perfect for a chilly day in Texas. I am anxiously waiting for the black to become available again so that I can order that one too. Size-wise runs slightly generous so do not size up if you want it fitted." —Kimberly G

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 11 styles).

    20. A fabulous crewneck sweater and pencil skirt set that would likely garner a nod of approval from Miranda Priestly., Amazon

    "I have this jacket and I'm OBSESSED. I love to wear work from home outfits that are functional and cozy but also look trendy for meeting calls. This fits the bill to a T and is perfect layered over a classic long sleeve. It's oversized so if you want it more fitted I'd suggest going down a size."

    Snag is a small woman-owned business based in the UK. BuzzFeed editor Kayla Boyd swears by these tights, she said:

    "These are honestly the best tights I've ever owned! I'm a size 16/18 and it can be hard to find tights that are actually comfortable, not a struggle to put on, and don't rip before I've even stepped outside. These ones are dream come true!! I have been wearing dresses and skirts way more often this winter because I finally have tights I can feel comfy and confident in."

    Get them from Snag for $12 (available in seven sizing options and 11 colors).

    27. Opaque leggings you'll find yourself gravitating to every day as they'll easily go with pretty much all of your cold weather wardrobe. Sweatshirts? Yep. Sweaters? Sure! Jackets? Also, a yes.


    I am wearing these leggings right now as I write this. They are soft, not too thick, and are not at all see through. In fact, the only thing I asked for one Christmas was three pairs of these leggings — and urged my mom to get them for my sisters as well. I'm a big fan!

    Promising review: "Wow! I was extremely skeptical of these leggings considering they’re a 'one size fits all' type of deal. I am 5-foot-5 and curvier. I was worried they were going to be too tight or see-through. However, that’s not the case! They are not see-through even after three washes so far. They are extremely soft and comfortable. The only thing I noticed is they are more of a muted black compared to some of my other leggings but it’s barely noticeable. I liked them so much I ordered a second pair. Def would recommend!" —nichole campton

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49+ (available in one size and plus size and in 22 colors).

    28. A pair of casual cotton linen overalls to upgrade your cozy WFH wardrobe and make choosing an outfit easier than ever.,

    29. A two-piece tie-dyed set, perfect for anyone who wants to feel comfy-cozy but is tired of overheating in flannel pants.,

    Promising review: "Absolutely love these jammies! The material is perfect for either winter or summer time. I already had so many people ask me where I got them and have even worn them out to the store and people have no idea they are PJs. I already ordered the tie-dye and the leopard print. I plan to get them in every pattern! Highly highly recommend!" —Pamela Machuca

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 24 styles).

    30. A soft graphic tee that'll make you nostalgic for the best day of the school year where you got to peruse a bunch of books and order 'em on your parents' dime. What a time to be alive!

    Emma Lord / BuzzFeed, Bookshelf Tees

    Bookshelf Tees is a woman-owned small business based in Tucson, Arizona that specializes in book-themed apparel, stickers, and pins. BuzzFeed editor Emma Lord has this shirt! She said:

    "I own the "Book Fair" shirt above, and it is one of my all-time favorite tees! The material is so soft and washes up beautifully, and I'm in love with the retro feel and how its bright colors match with a ton of different outfits (important if the person you're gifting for, like me, has a rotating set of flannels and a *lot* of books they like to match with)."

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 19 prints).

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in unisex sizes S–2XL and five colors).

    Do you ever find a staple item that just *works* with everything you own so you stock up on it in every single color? That's me with Madewell's Whisper Cotton tee.

    Promising review: "I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE this coat!!! I saw it on Arielle Charnas (Something Navy) and ordered it immediately. It is true-to-size, SUPER warm, surprisingly well made for how inexpensive it is, and the amount of compliments I have received on it is INSANE. Seriously debating ordering a second one to have as backup! HIGHLY recommend!!!" —Lauren Silverman

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, American Eagle

    These "dream jeans" are *so* stretchy and soft that I prefer them to pretty much any other pair in my closet. As seen in the photo above, I was able to comfortably get on the ground to pet a pup without any issue (priorities). They don't cut into my waist — if I was capable of doing a cartwheel, I could definitely do one in these. I love them so much I sent a few pairs along to my sister who is also now obsessed.

    Promising review: "These are pretty jeans. I am usually an XS/0 but since they are stretchable I figured I'd go a size down and these fit perfectly. They fit just right, I love how they stretch and how comfortable I feel in them all day." —Sandra
