    Promising review: "Love this sweatshirt! I have it in 3 colors and basically wear one every day. Super soft and comfortable and they've held up really well considering how much I wear and wash them. I wash in cold and hang dry and they look good as new after several months. Fits true to size. Highly recommend!" —Cassie

    Promising review: "I love this bra! I was hesitant about the straps on the back being functional, while they are very cute; but it fits well and holds up fine during yoga (although I won't be using this for any more intensive training). I have the matching leggings and I really like the pattern, and the Powervita fabric is so nice!" —kr2107

    Promising review: "I originally purchased the flurry balaclava hoodie for running in the cold, for which it is perfectly made. But, the versatility is why I bought more! It works everywhere from the ski slopes to walking the dog on cold Colorado mornings - and everywhere in between! The fit is great, the versatility is amazing, that is why I now have one in every color!" —SheBuf

    Price: $55.19 (originally $98, available in sizes XS–L and three colors)

    13. A ribbed one-piece bathing suit to encourage you to book that tropical vacation you've been debating since the first snowflake hit the ground.


    Promising review: "Simple yet flattering. It’s thicker than I expected but I’m not complaining — especially if you know you’re going to be in really cold water! I got this in black and red." —Anna

    Price: $55.19 (originally $98, available in sizes 2XS–XL, regular, tall, and petite lengths and five colors)

    14. Buttery soft leggings that'll quickly become your go-to pair thanks to their no-flip waistband — and the stylish stripes don't hurt either!

    Price: $39.98 (originally $98, available in sizes XS–L, in regular and petite lengths and two styles)

    15. A waist bag you can wear as a cross body or like a fanny pack to hold your essentials (phone, wallet, keys) whenever you head outdoors for a workout or don't want to tote a clunky gym bag around.


    Promising review: "I love this bag! I was kind of wondering why this bag was priced so high but when I got it in the mail I see that the quality of the straps is very high. I like that it comes with a waist strap and a crossbody strap and they are very heavy duty. It is sporty and casual and I love it. I have already used it several times. I do have a hard time getting my phone in the back pocket though but it easily fits in the main zippered compartment." —LAR234

    Price: $39.99 (originally $88)

    16. A lightweight sweatshirt to replace the ratty old one you've stretched out or worn holes into — it's time.

    Price: $47.99 (originally $79, available in sizes 2XS–XL, in regular, tall and petite lengths and seven colors)

    17. A velvet down vest with a detachable hood — perfect for anyone who hates feeling weighed down by a big coat but still doesn't want to catch a cold.


    Promising review: "Fell in love with this vest the moment I saw it in store. You can dress it up or down due to the velvet like material. Super comfortable and very warm and flattering. Don’t pass this up, you will absolutely love it." —Lisa M

    Price: $79.99 (originally $148, available in sizes 2XS-L and teal or black)

    18. A simple cropped tee you can pair with vibrant yoga pants or rock with your fave joggers for the ultimate athleisure look.


    Promising review: "This top has a crop cut without being too short. It looks great with high-waisted jeans and leggings, or if you’re a little bolder, shoes off just a bit of your tummy without being too revealing. Love the natural color too!" —AZyogini

    Price: $15.18+ (originally $44, available in sizes 2XS–XL, regular, tall and petite lengths and eight colors)

    19. And a workout dress designed to withstand medium and high intensity exercises. Step out onto the tennis court wearing this beauty and they'll be saying "Serena Williams, who?"
