    Promising review: "I have been looking for some new spring/summer sandals and I just received these and they are so incredibly comfortable and super cute! I think I will order them in more colors. The width is perfect on me. I tend to have a wider foot, but not that wide. I my normal size in most shoes/sandals and it fits perfectly. The color is fabulous too! I ordered gray." —Magical Everyday

    Get it from Amazon for $14.87+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and 83 styles).

    2. A midi skirt that'll help you flawlessly transform into a modern day Disney Princess without breaking the bank. Honestly you *do* deserve much more than this provincial life and this skirt knows it.,

    Promising review: "I absolutely adore this skirt. This is the fifth one I’ve ordered. I regularly get compliments on it and occasionally make others jealous when I twirl and I show them it has POCKETS too! It’s work-appropriate, as it hangs to my knees, and can also be worn in social settings. The material is sturdy, the color is vibrant and doesn’t fade, and it’s never bled onto any of my clothes." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and nine colors).

    3. A spaghetti-strap gingham dress for a picnic-perfect look at all times. Do you hear that? It's Dorothy applauding your style.

    Promising review: "This dress is cute!! The lace-up option in the back makes the dress actually fit my waist while the skirt part covers the rest of me. The straps are also adjustable which makes it all the easier to select a size. I think the material is actually very breathable and perfect for the summer. Lastly, this dress doesn't fly up around a fan or from a gust of wind. It stays in place, covering the goodies, instead of flying up and exposing everything. Overall great product. I want it in every color!" —Rori

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and eight colors).

    4. A printed midi skirt and tank set to get you in the warm-weather mindset — time to break out the sandals and sunnies!

    BuzzFeed editor Kayla Boyd has this fabulous set:

    "I love a matching set because it takes most of the work out of putting an outfit together. And this one is such a great deal! I love how comfy and easy it is to wear. I was concerned about it being see-through, but it wasn't! It has a stretchy waist and a cute tie detail in the front of the skirt. For spring days, I just throw a denim jacket over it. And, of course, I plan to wear it all summer as well. I would 100% buy more colors in this — and there are so many to choose from!"

    Get it from Amazon for $18+ (available in sizes XL–5XL and 36 styles).

    5. A pastel maxi dress with puffy sleeves that'll make you feel like you're the lead in a classic fairytale that starts with "Once upon a time there was a fabulously dressed maiden.",

    This is a great dupe for the more expensive ~Nap Dresses~ that have gained popularity in the last year!

    Promising review: "Ethereally beautiful!! This dress is absolutely LOVELY. It’s so lightweight, breezy, and comfortable. It fits perfectly, and the bodice has plenty of stretch so if you’re in between sizes, you could go either way. I actually sized down because I wanted to wear it on the shoulders and didn’t want the sleeves slipping off, but I didn’t have an issue with that at all. It’s wrinkly when it arrives, but a quick steam makes it look so much nicer and more expensive than it is. I got the sage green color and it’s not see-through, it’s beautiful. (I actually returned it in favor of a color I thought I’d wear more, but if green is your fave then you’ll love it). Get this dress!" —Laura

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and nine colors).

    6. A cute cami and shorts set, because if you're anything like me you've been searching for loungewear you can layer with a sweatshirt to ensure you can always achieve the perfect body temp.,

    Promising review: "The material was more than I expected! It was super comfortable and soft. It was the perfect size and perfect for bedtime." —shasme

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 27 styles).

    7. A tweed shift dress you'll be thrilled to have on deck when you get the call it's time to return to the office. That cute co-worker you've been flirting with via email since working from home? You'll blow them away with your fashion sense once they see you again IRL.

    Promising review: "So cute — I get so many compliments on this! Even friends ask to borrow it! Works great by itself or with a blazer. Only complaint is that it could be a little longer, as sizing up would make it baggy. Great for winter or summer and the pockets are perfect!" —Virginia Redgate

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and two styles).

    8. A two-piece set that'll make getting dressed the easiest decision you make all day. This outfit has serious heading-to-dinner-after-laying-by-the-beach-all-day vibes.,

    Promising review: "I love this set! Every time I wear it I get compliments from friends. I also like how open and breathable it is. Texas summers are very hot and I‘m not absolutely dying when I wear this! Very happy with the purchase." —Erika V.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 11 colors).

    9. A vibrant top and skirt set with playful layers you'll be showered in compliments over — it really is quite darling, isn't it?

    10. A floral appliqué tulle skirt you can count on to quickly become one of your favorite pieces — it's dainty and playful at the same time!,

    Promising review: "This skirt is beautiful with soft layers, giving it a delicate sophisticated feel. It has enough layering to not be see-through. High quality elastic waistband ensures a comfortable fit. Khaki color will go with a variety of other colors and give a lot of options. Happy with this purchase." —Parkers Mom

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in one size and 23 styles).

    11. A short-sleeve patterned dress that'll make you look as fresh as a field of daisies — quite literally.,

    Promising review: "Adorable little dress! Very well-made. It's double-lined. The length, fabric, and cut is beautiful. Perfect for spring!" —Lauren Fuquay

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and five colors).

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

    Promising review: "I just wanted these for kicking around in the garden and they have worked great for that... so I own three pairs now. They're lightweight and good for warmer days." —C. Zittel

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and four colors).

    13. High-waisted leggings reviewers say are super stretchy and not see-through at all — they'll be there for you whether you have big plans to watch an entire season of The Crown on your couch or break a sweat during a YouTube workout.,

    Promising review: "These leggings are perfect. They’re not see-through at all, very stretchy without being straight Spandex, and true to color. The seams are in comfortable places and the waistband is great. I buy a lot of leggings, and this is now my go-to source." —Devon Borokoff

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 22 styles patterns).

    14. And high-waisted biker shorts to help you fight the good fight against warm weather chaffing (sigh, it IS almost that time again, isn't it?) and give you an excuse to wear your oversized band tees and chunky sneakers but call it *fashion*.

    They also come in an array of pastel colors for extra springtime vibes! BuzzFeed Editor Emma Lord is a fan of these:

    "I bought these in the plain black for running two months ago and WHOOPS, I wear them all the time. Very comfortable, just the right amount of compression for short *and* long runs, and they wash up really nicely."

    Promising review: "Gone are the days of slathering vaseline on my thighs before my long runs! These shorts don't slip down, they don't ride up, and they have pockets that actually fit my entire hand. I'm training for a summer race and these shorts seriously saved my life. Best running shorts by I've tried by far." —J. Madrian

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and 15 styles).

    15. An oversized denim jacket, because you'll never regret having an extra stylish layer to add to your outfit during spring's unpredictable weather.

    Emma Lord/BuzzFeed, VK Modern/Etsy

    VK Modern is a small business based out of California that specializes in handmade crafts like masks, T-shirts, and more.

    BuzzFeed editor Emma Lord has and loves this springy mask! She said:

    "I bought this mask a month ago because I wanted to feel fancy and springtime-y, and it actually ended up being one of the comfiest ones I own! It has tiny adjustable toggles on the ears that lock in place really effectively and make it form-fitting. It's also just a fun way to throw a "look, I made an effort today!" flex at the same people I see walking their dogs in the park every morning, which suits my vain sensibilities."

    Type Of Fit: Adjustable elastic ear straps

    Pocket For Filter: No

    Fabric Type: Cotton

    Shipping Time: Expected to ship in 2-3 days

    Get it from VK Modern on Etsy for $5.95+ (available in four colors).

    18. A two-piece lounge set to help achieve that "I'm chill and chic" vibe you've seen all of your favorite influencers pull off.,

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and nine styles).

    19. A graphic tee you'll likely want to pick up for all the lovely ladies in your life — it'll look great whether you dress it up with tons of accessories and a denim jacket or lounge around the house in it and your fave leggings.

    Feminist Goods Co

    Feminist Goods Co. is a woman-owned small business that makes badass products to encourage women to feel their best and express themselves. I've had the pleasure of getting to know Lauren, the owner, and can confirm she is as cool as the products she sells. I have this tee in white and it's one of my absolute faves.

    Get it from Feminist Goods Co. for $36 (available in sizes XS–4XL and two colors).

    20. A midi dress with bohemian vibes that'll help you embrace the sunshine this spring and summer.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    I wore this dress to my sister-in-law's socially distanced bridal shower — it was a hit! I'm about 5-foot-1 and I didn't have to worry about hemming this dress at all. I'm *very* busty and went with the medium — it was a bit taught over my chest but the button loops were very forgiving so it didn't create that awkward this-top-is-too-tight look. Highly recommend!

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and six styles).

    21. A crewneck devoted to the planet saving hobby we all know and love; composting. Truthfully cannot think of a better addition to your spring wardrobe — just in time for Earth Day!

    Shop BuzzFeed

    Get it from Shop BuzzFeed for $46.99 (available in unisex sizes S–5XL and two colors).

    22. A ruffled baby doll dress you can wear all year long — it looks just as lovely with a leather or denim jacket over it as it does on its own.,

    Promising review: "I love this dress! It fit perfectly! I am 5-foot-10 and struggle finding dresses that are not 'too short.' This was a perfect length. The bottom half of the dress is lined, which makes it completely opaque. It is a thin material that makes steaming extremely easy and fast. I worn this to an Atlanta Braves game in 100+ degree weather and was able to keep cool. Perfect addition to my wardrobe." —karmen howard

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes S–2XL and four colors).

    23. A pair of drawstring shorts for anyone who absolutely hates the feeling when the button of denim shorts digs into their stomach when they sit down (that can't be just me, right?).,

    Promising review: "I LOVE these shorts. They are so comfortable and they fit perfectly. I want them in every color!!" —AM

    Get them from Amazon for $17.83+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 24 colors).

    24. 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 $39.99+ (available in sizes 23–34 and eight colors).

    25. Or ripped Mom jeans with a suuuuper high waist that'll look absolutely awesome with your favorite graphic tee or a cropped tank.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, American Eagle

    I recently snagged these jeans and cannot wait to wear them out and about on outdoor adventures! I've been a little weary to squeeze back into jeans after spending the last year in solely leggings (feel free to read about the many black leggings I tried here) so I was pleasantly surprised to comfortably fit into these right off the bat. I loooove the super high waist and the rips at the bottom. They look super cute with a cropped tank (as seen above) and will definitely also look good with a cardi thrown over it or tied around the waist as well. AE jeans never disappoint.

    Get them from American Eagle for $49.95+ (available in sizes 000–24, short, regular, and long, and four styles).

    26. A darling floral maxi dress you can use as an excuse to run ahead of your S.O. on your next date to the park, shouting "the hills are aliiiiiive with the sound of musiiiic.", Amazon

    Did I mention it has POCKETS!?

    Promising review: "First I got the yellow-flowered print — it fits perfectly on the shoulders and it's easy to slip on. It feels as if I'm wearing air! Or have become a billowing cloud. The pattern is very pretty, combining yellow, black, and white — unusually remarkable. It's been remarked on favorably every time I wear it. My husband loves it, strangers come up to admire it and most importantly, I love the way it makes me feel and look. I live in a hot summer climate and this dress meets the challenge. I liked it so much I've also gotten the red (I usually look horrid in red, but this one works) and am awaiting the blue. I wouldn't usually go this wild on spending but the cost of each dress is so low I'm stocking up. Added note: it washes well." —Charlotte O. Lowe

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and 38 colors).

    27. Floral footwear from Keds x Rifle Paper that'll act as a mood booster during springtime's rainy days and take your typical all-black wardrobe to the next level.

    white sneakers with blue flowers and butterflies on them

    I've been a longtime fan of both Keds and Rifle Paper so whenever they come out with a collaboration it's a no-brainer purchase for me. I love the Triple Kick style (I have them in white) because they give me a little extra height but don't feel too clunky to walk around in all day long. Not into florals? Check out Keds x Kate Spade's collab as well for other fun springtime options.

    Get it them from Keds for $84.95 (available in sizes 5–11).

    28. A denim tunic shirtdress with raw hems you'll love so much you might just want to buy it in multiple styles and make it your workday uniform.

    A model wearing the long-sleeved mini dress with frayed cuffs in light wash denim

    Promising review: "It’s darling, practical, and comfy. I love the light wash color I chose. The fringed ends are cute too. It’s a soft, light, semi-stretchy denim fabric, perfect for a dress. The buttons extend the length of it so it doesn’t have to live its life only as a dress — it can be worn a cardigan too, or a tunic. It’s versatile! Made with nice quality and detail. Love it!" —Leah

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

    29. A stylish dress featuring a double-tiered skirt you won't be able to stop yourself from twirling around in.,

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress — so much so that I bought it in three different colors. It’s so comfortable and the length and flow is perfect. If you want more length and/or are between sizes, I’d recommend sizing up." —Taylor

    Get it from Amazon for $15.88+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 33 colors).

    30. A tulip-hemmed sheath dress that'll look so chic with those new shoes you just picked up. Don't you just love an outfit you can wear with sneakers, sandals, or boots?


    Promising review: "This dress is phenomenal. Not see through at all (I did buy black, though), and it is lined. It’s also extremely comfortable. I plan to dress it both up and down either for work or casual outings. I’ll admit I was skeptical, but I definitely won’t be returning this dress. And, as many have stated, it looks much more expensive than what it goes for. I do recommend going with your normal size. I can typically fit into both an S and an M, but M is my usual size for most clothing and this dress fit great. Was not too tight at all, I fear a small would have been clinging to me." —KG

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL, two styles and 16 colors).

    31. A pair of Levi's denim shorts, a must-have for anyone who dislikes dresses but still wants to show off their lovely legs this summer.

    A person wearing denim shorts and a black graphic top under a cardigan

    Promising review: "These shorts are great. I like the style and that they are shorter in the front but a little longer in the back. They don’t have much give but stretch out from wearing them during the day. I have gotten a lot of compliments on these shorts!" —Caitlynn B.

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes 24-34 and 12 colors)

    Psst: this item is included in Prime Wardrobe so you can give it a trial run if you're a member!

    32. A super soft crewneck you can toss on before an evening stroll when the weather typically gets cooler and you subsequently start to think about how desperately you wish you were on your way to eat a Mickey ice cream bar and watch the fireworks instead of doing, well, this. I'm fine, I swear.

    Magic Moon Club

    OK so maybe I miss Walt Disney World just a littttttle bit. I discovered Magic Moon Club, a small sister-owned business based out of the UK, while scrolling through Instagram and immediately saved basically everything they make to my wish list. Between this and their "home truths" collection my bank account should be very nervous.

    Get it from Magic Moon Club for $34.50 (available in unisex sizes S–XL and two colors).

    33. A chic faux leather belt to act as the finishing touch on every outfit that just seems to be missing *something*.,

    Promising review: "So excited about this belt for the price. Good quality for the price, fits well, and it's got a designer look without really being a tacky dupe or knockoff. Five stars!" —kalyjo

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in women's sizes XS–XL and 12 styles).

    34. A pleated polka dot skirt that's practically perfect in every way. I dare you to say all of that 10x fast.,

    Promising review: "This skirt gets me many compliments whenever I wear it, you can dress it up or down and always end up looking vibrant and fun. Also it doesn’t lose its pleating when you wash it or get wrinkles at all, also the elastic is super stretchy for your heavy eating days! Good length too, I’m 5-foot-4 and I don’t have to shave my legs to wear this since it comes right to my ankles!" –nikou

    Get it from Amazon for $27.89+ (available in sizes S–2XL and eight colors).

    35. An off-the-shoulder dress with a stunning scalloped hem you'll want the whole world to see (good thing we have Instagram — snap one pic and they can!).,

    Promising review: "I always get nervous when purchasing clothing on Amazon, but was very happy with this purchase. The material is a decent weight and the cut outs at the bottom of the dress are done nicely. I'm 5-foot-5 and the dress hits just above my knees, which is a perfect length. I don't like my clothes tight, so purchased a 3X. It's loose and flowy and hangs just right. Overall, I'm very happy with the dress. I would go a size up depending on your shape and how you like your clothes to hang." —Kathryn Mathewson

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in women's sizes 0X–4X and 16 styles).

    36. An embroidered Taylor Swift "Fearless" sweatshirt that'll take you *right* back to 2008 when you first heard "Forever and Always" and realized JUST how awful your 15-year-old ex was. Cheers to moving on 13 years later!

    Three Thirteen, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    A handful of us have ordered pieces from Three Thirteen and have nothing but positive things to say about this woman-owned small business. My fellow BuzzFeed editor Emma Lord didn't have to do much convincing to get me to add one of these beauties into my cart shortly after hers arrived. The Fearless one is the second to join my collection ;). The best part about this shop is that you can have the embroidery done on an array of items — sweatshirts, tees, hoodies, or a long sleeve. The quality is fantastic and I'll be living in mine while scream-singing "Mr. Perfectly Fine."

    Get the crewneck from from Three Thirteen for $40 (available in unisex sizes S–3XL and 10 colors).

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

    Pour one out for The Duke of Hastings.

    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).
