    1. A witty crewneck sweatshirt that'll guarantee you'll have a ~ghoul~ time whenever you wear it.

    Etsy, Mallory Mower / Etsy

    My coworker Mallory Mower and I both took one look at this sweatshirt and knew we had to have it — not just for spooky season, but for all year! It's super soft and cozy. It might just become your go-to cold weather accessory.

    Get it from Femfetti on Etsy for $30.40+ (available in unisex sizes S–5XL).

    2. A basic crewneck you'll probs to want to order 10 of — just ask one of the nearly 3K Amazon customers who left a five-star review.,

    Promising review: "Every year my father-in-law asks for a different color sweatshirt — no hood, no zipper, no pockets. Just a basic sweatshirt in a different color. And every year we get him a Hanes sweatshirt as a present, because they're soft, comfortable, fit well, and work well to keep him warm during our freezing Wisconsin winters. The price is also perfect and it saves us from going to the store, so I'd say it's pretty much perfect." —SomeGeekyGirl

    Get it from Amazon for $8.09+ (available in sizes S–5XL and 30 colors).

    3. High-waisted leggings you can throw on to lounge around your apartment or pair with an oversized sweater for brunch — truly the most versatile (and necessary) item of clothing you'll ever own.


    Promising review: "Wow! I was extremely skeptical of these leggings considering they’re a 'one size fits all' type of deal. I am 5'5" 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 $12.99+ (available in two sizes and in 22 colors).

    4. A lace skater dress with a high-neck perfect for wearing to a wedding where you'll likely end up the envy of every single bridesmaid.


    Get it from Boohoo for $24.80 (available in sizes 2–12 and five colors).

    5. An oversized crewneck sweatshirt dress that'll help you live out your dream of wearing sweats 24/7., Amazon

    Promising review: "Welcome to comfort city. If your looking for a form fitting, little black dress.. this is not for you. If you're looking to wear what I believe clouds made into clothing would feel like.. well then you have arrived my friend. It's a nice sweatshirt material made for Goldie locks, not too thin and not too thick. Perfect for the gal that takes her bra off as soon as she gets home. This is also nice to run errands or road trip in. Just add some leggings, cute boots, and a jazzy scarf and it will look like you kind of tried for the day whilst feeling like you're wearing PJs. AND IT HAS POCKETS. POCKETS!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.20+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 35 styles).

    6. A 3-pack of lightweight workout tanks to ensure you always look cute while breaking a sweat. Priorities, my friend.


    Promising review: "I have been looking for a good quality shirt for the gym. This brand does a great job with the quality of their items. It is super soft on my skin. Fits well. And let me tell you I love how I look when I wear them. They give me such confidence especially to see my progress at the gym. PLUS 3 tanks for $21 is a great deal!!!!" —Mr. Bar

    Get them from Amazon for $23.79+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 10 styles).

    7. A waffle knit V-neck that'll be your go-to whether you're running errands, lounging around the house, or grabbing a quick bite with a friend.,

    Promising review: "I got this in a large to be a little oversized based on other reviews. I normally wear a medium to a large. I wore it at the port in Alabama where it was about 70 degrees and still wore it when I got to Mexico where it was a humid 95 degrees. Super soft and doesn’t stick to your skin. Whether you layer it in the fall or just wear it as a cover up in the summer it’s worth the money." —Tori

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 12 styles).

    8. A cocktail dress you can count on to take your sex appeal to the next level while also, surprisingly, staying warm.,

    Promising review: "This is one of those finds that will restore your faith after a bunch of bad choices. I found my holiday dress, for sure. It comes down to just above my knee. The color was gorgeous as well, and it slides off the shoulders just beautifully. I will be ordering a black one ASAP, and probably a blue one...omg they're so pretty. Dress it up with heels, or down with leggings and boots, works both ways." —Hailey

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 10 styles).

    9. A utility jacket with a funnel neck design and large flap pockets to store your phone and wallet in when you don't feel like toting around a handbag.

    Get it from Forever 21 for $24 (available in sizes S–M and two colors)

    10. A teddy coat you should treat yourself to as a reward for even realizing you should be wearing a coat. Great job!,

    My best friend and I both picked up this coat last year and have already discussed how excited we are wait to break them out again now that the weather is slowly getting colder. It makes me feel like I'm being enveloped in a warm hug — and who doesn't want that?

    Promising review: "This jacket is so soft and warm, and the big pockets are a plus. Like other reviewers, order a size up so you can comfortably layer under and zip up. I usually wear a small but got a medium and it’s perfect! Super cute, I’ll probably buy another’s in a different color lol." —Brianna

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in sizes S–3XL and 12 styles).

    11. A mini T-shirt dress with ruched sides that'll let you show off a little leg. Ooh, la la!, Amazon

    Promising review: "I usually get a small in clothes, but sized up to a medium in this dress so it wasn’t skin tight. Love, love, love this for spring and summer. Looks so cute with a pair of white sneakers but could also be dressed up." —Megan

    Promising review: "I have three of these and I absolutely love them with leggings and a scarf and boots! The fabric is wonderful, the quality is really high for the price point. I am pretty tall so the length is amazing — a bit too short to wear just as a dress but with tights or leggings it's perfect." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 23 styles).

    15. An oversized chunky sweater that'll become a staple in your outfit rotations from now through the end of winter — just look at how snuggly it seems!, Amazon

    Promising review: "This is such a cute sweater! It fits as expected — order the size you are unless you want it even more oversized. The sleeves are long and wide and the fit is wide, loose, and comfy. It is normal length, so that is something to keep in mind — it doesn't cover my butt — so if you want a longer sweater this one might not be the right fit. I love how soft and comfy this is, and the color is very pretty. Really happy!" —Rachel Yu

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 12 styles).

    Promising review: "Bought this for a trip to Italy and was AMAZED at the high quality. I’m a curvy girl and would normally get an XL, but after reading reviews about stretchy waistband opted for the L and it was a perfect fit. It hangs beautifully and is very flattering. Highly recommend." —Dr. Shanelle

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 23 styles).

    18. A leopard print shirt you'll take one look at and say, "Wow, I want that in my closet right now.",

    Promising review: "It's exactly like the photo. It's real cute, it would look cute tied up in the front or tucked into high waisted pants. It's cut like a normal tee, but I think it looks nice enough that I'll probably wear it on casual Friday to work." —Buffy

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 43 styles).

    19. A swing dress complete with ruffles on the hemline and the sleeves, so cute you'll want to snag it in every color.,

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 10 styles).

    20. A soft cardigan with buttons trailing all the way down to add a little extra ~somethin' something'~ to your standard style.,

    Promising review: "I’m so happy with this cardigan! It can be dressed up for work or styled casually. My favorite part is the 'copper' style buttons that snap securely closed. Adds a fun visual to the mustard yellow color. The cuffed sleeves and waist make for a comfortable fit. I appreciate the longer length so I can pair it with leggings. I was expecting a knit material but it’s actually a cotton blend so it’s super comfy! Can’t wait to style this so many different ways." —The Blissful Cate

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 20 styles).

    21. A cute T-shirt any bookworm would be happy to wear on a Friday night to let everyone their house know what big plans they have.

    Promising review: "Super cute. I ordered the light blue color and it's true to color (I'm standing in direct sunlight by my window). Waist band is elastic with removable belt. Pockets are deep. Didn't flatten my booty as I feared. Plenty of room for my ankles despite the skinny style silhouette. Material is lighter weight with stretch. Seams and finishing look great. Unless it spontaneously falls apart on me in the wash, I'm calling these a win." —Annie S.

    26. Denim jeggings to make it seem like you're not wearing leggings in public but let your body feel like you are. Win-win!


    Promising review: "The color is perfect, and these jeans are unbelievably comfortable! Truly denim butter! However, I sized down one based on reviews and they fit great.

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS SWEATER DRESS! I read the reviews before me and they said if you want the over size look to go up a size. I am 5’4. 145 pounds. Normally wear a medium. I went up to a large for the over size look. I normally roll up the sleeve once for a cute cuffed look. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND." —Jodi Hochstetler

    Get it from Amazon for $24.55+ (available in sizes S–XL and 11 styles).

    Promising review: "Super cute. I’m 5'1 and drown in most mid length dresses but this was flattering. It would look even better in heels but I opted for flats during my trip. It was pretty funny, my stepmom and I showed up wearing the same dress, different pattern. We looked at each other and said 'Amazon?' Every time I go out someone compliments this dress. So be prepared for random strangers to approach you." —Lauren Saunders

Other reviewers are correct that the bottoms run slightly tighter than you may expect, but in my case this wasn't a huge discomfort or too noticeable (and I am wide-hipped). Don't even hesitate if you've got your eye on this one. You will not regret the purchase!" —Amazon Customer

If you live in colder climates un-zip the half-zip and wear a henley or a mock turtle underneath it and you'll have superb warmth. I happen to feel really good when I wear it. Washes great! Classy, classic, sporty, yet subtle. Love the quality and the fit is TTS....A winter winner!" —VegasVision

    Promising review: "I love dusters and this one is a wonderful addition to my summer wardrobe. It's a versatile piece that works as the perfect cover-up over jeans or a strapless dress. The colors are vibrant and the fabric is light and fluid. The first time I wore this it was a warm, yet windy day here in Southeast Michigan. I felt like a bohemian goddess as the duster waved in the wind behind me as I walked." —SS

    Promising review: "Yeeessss, this is exactly the fit and material I wanted in joggers. I ordered a small and I'm 5'1, 130lbs, usually a 4/6 in pants. The waist is a tiny bit snug but everything else is super comfortable. The material is so soft and feels great on. My favorite part is the tapered leg that makes the pants edgier." —Liz
