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

    3. 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 5'4 and I don’t have to shave my legs to wear this since it comes right to my ankles!" –nikou

    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 $31.22+ (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!

    Promising review: "I love these boots. They’re comfy to wear all night for work and stylish enough to get compliments often. I need a few more pairs because these are a new staple in my wardrobe. Don’t let us down Amazon, give us more of these wonderful boots!!" —Chantelle-oh

    Get them from Amazon for $39.20 (available in sizes 5–13 and two colors).

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

    6. 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?, Amazon

    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 $6.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL, two styles and 16 colors).

    7. Pearl velvet headbands for a fancy addition to your typically messy hair. You'll thank me later.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Amazon

    One of my coworkers purchased this four-pack and was kind enough to share with the rest of us! I love how easy this headband makes it to make a fashion statement without taking up too much time in the morning — and I was able to wear it all day without getting a headache!

    Promising review: "I live in headbands as a stay-at-home mom with two small kiddos. They make your messy bun actually look like you're decent-looking and like you got yourself together 😂 definitely a great pack for cheap. They are made very well, great quality!" —Misty Flota

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $12.99.

    8. 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 $27.99+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and 38 colors).

    9. A cropped cami to layer under those adorable overalls you picked up last season as an attempt to show Gen Z you actually are still cool (even if you do still wear skinny jeans and part your hair to the side).

    American Eagle

    Promising review: "True to size, soft, and cute! I have a 38D to DD chest and this fits me well just like their other shirts! The buttons are cute and do not stretch because of my chest and I love the tie dye color and the frills!" —Maisy O

    Get it from American Eagle for $14.99 (available in sizes 2XS–2XL and seven styles) and complete the entire look with the overalls for $59.26 (available in sizes 2XS–2XL).

    10. 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 $18.99 (available in sizes S–2XL and 16 colors).

    11. 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 $24.98+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 33 colors).

    12. 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 $15.56+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 10 styles).

    13. 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 $27.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and six styles).

    14. Stylish pajamas that'll easily transition into loungewear on lazy Sunday mornings. Fewer things make me smile as much as a cozy outfit does, TBH.


    Promising review: "These are great. Super comfy and perfect fit. I’m going to order a few more sets in other colors." —Maggy G

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 30 styles).

    16. 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 $44.99+ (available in sizes 23–34 and eight colors).

    17. A sweatshirt embroidered with Princess Diana in her iconic "revenge dress" that'll properly pay tribute to her while also leaving you looking as stylish as ever.

    ViableNYC / Etsy

    BuzzFeed editor Abby Kass recently ordered this sweatshirt and I am still seething with jealousy. ViableNYC is a small business based in, obviously, New York. They sell so many pop culture-inspired shirts I might as well just direct deposit my paycheck to them. If you have no self-control (like me) you might also want to check out this Olivia Rodrigo "Driver's License" shirt or this WandaVision crewneck.

    Get it from ViableNYC on Etsy for $54 (available in men's sizes S–XL, 2X–3X).

    18. A pair of simple resin hoops you've been eyeing for some time. The time has come — treat yo' self., Amazon

    Promising review: "Super cute, extremely lightweight earrings. The tortoise color is great and can be worn with so many different colors. The hoop size is great, big enough to be noticed, but not too big that I feel inappropriate wearing to the office for work. Overall really nice earrings." —Erin

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99 (available in nine styles).

    19. An oversized shacket (shirt and jacket) you'll praise yourself for buying on those days between winter and spring where the weather is just a tad awkward — put the whole "do I need a coat?" debate to rest.

    Ali Faccenda / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed writer Ali Faccenda has this jacket and is a big fan! She said:

    "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."

    Get it from Amazon for $69.90 (available in sizes 2XS–2XL, 2X–3X and three colors).

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

    20. 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 $6.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 24 colors).

    Notte is a woman-owned small business found by Jessica Tse based in both New York and Florence, Italy

    Get them from Notte for $56.

    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 5'10 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 six colors).

    23. Rain boots to keep your tootsies warm and dry and have you checking your weather app for the next storm (so you can jump in puddles, of course)., Amazon

    Promising review: "I got these boots right before leaving on a three week vacation to Scotland and London. I didn't want to bring big heavy boots in my bag so I got these. They are pretty lightweight and very comfortable. I put an insole in to help with the cobblestone streets but I was able to wear them comfortably through long days of walking." —epop86

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in women's sizes 4.5–12 and 15 styles).

    24. 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 5'1 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).

    25. 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.,

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this set! Very comfortable and stylish. The fabric is soft and feels good on the skin. I like that I can wear it casually with sneakers and I can also dress it up with heels." —@ag_iroro

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and nine styles).

    26. Snag-proof opaque tights you can wear with reckless abandon knowing they certainly won't rip. They come in both fun colors like orange or green and neutrals like slate and black.

    Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

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

    Promising review: "I love this outfit. I bought a medium and it fits perfectly, if not a tiny bit big. It is unique and different. I hope they make more colors. Will buy this brand again." —Ginny Cole

    Get it from Amazon for $40.77+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and three styles).

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

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

    A person wearing a gingham patterned dress

    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

    Promising review: "I love these shirts, I got the black alien and the white wave shirt. They fit perfect and have held up (as well as the designs) through lots of washes. I wear these out during the day and I also wear them to bed sometimes because they’re so comfy. " —sara
