    44 Stylish Things To Pick Up *After* You've Cleaned Out Your Closet

    Knit booties, patterned stockings, a skater dress with a Peter Pan collar, and anything else your closet may be lacking.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A faux leather dress with balloon sleeves you can wear on days you need a friendly reminder you are a freakin' badass and your style game is unmatched (we love a confidence boost!).


    Promising review: "This faux-leather dress costs a fraction of what I've paid in years past for real leather dresses, and looks 10 times more expensive! I purchased this dress in black in my usual size small and it fit like a dream. Very flattering and beautifully draped. Perfect for work or a night out. I worried that the elastic around the three-quarter sleeves might pinch, but they didn't. The lining is a satiny fabric that adds to the elegance of this dress, which is machine washable. Who could ask for more?" —NY2NJwoman

    Get it from Target for $31.99 (available in sizes XS–2XL, 1X–4X and two styles).

    2. 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 last 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 $9.99+ (available in one size and plus size and in 22 colors).

    3. A waffle knit sweater made of cotton-merino yarn to help you *keep your cool* while staying nice 'n' warm this fall.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Madewell

    This was my most recent sweater purchase and I was more than thrilled to break it out recently. I wore it outdoors on one of the season's chilliest nights so far and was honestly comfortable! I got lots of compliments on the colors as well!

    Get it from Madewell for $69.50 (available in sizes 2XS–XL).

    4. Knit boots that'll literally *fit like a glove* and probably cause anyone who sees you to give you a double take while wondering "where did they get such FABULOUS footwear?"

    woven knit high ankle boots in toffee with a dark brown wooden heel

    Promising review: "These boots are really comfortable, they have enough stretch to fit across the bridge of my foot but also conform to the foot and look great. Because of this stretch, they are also super easy to put on (even when standing up). Since they are so light in color I was a bit concerned about staining, but I got a small black mark on one of them and it came straight off with just soap and water." —Lozz

    Get them from Everlane for $156 (available in sizes 5–11 and nine styles).

    5. An oversized Salem-inspired tee you can pair with bike shorts for a spellbound style you'll love.

    myohmysupplyco / Via

    Why not celebrate the spirit of Halloween whenever you want? I have many (many) items from MOMSCO and highly recommend! I typically size up for an oversized fit, so if you want something extra cuddly I'd suggest doing the same.

    Get it from My Oh My Supply Co for $32 (available in sizes S–2XL).

    6. Patterned fishnet stockings that'll make you want to ~show a lil' more leg~ even if you're headed to a family affair. Sorry, Grandma.

    four different legs showing the different patterns of tights

    Promising review: "The fabric is really, really soft and goes back to the original shape even after wearing them for the whole day. The instructions included are pretty straight forward for washing and keeping them. I love their packaging, which is quite classy. The pattern doesn't have big holes/netting hence it doesn't show much of your skin so I feel they are perfect for work and formal meetings. I love these tights!!" —Anshika Goel

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in four styles, and find a similar plus size version for $14.99+).

    7. An off-the-shoulder waffle knit top, perfect for both running errands or a casual lunch with a friend you haven't seen in a minute.,

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this shirt! It's very trendy and flattering yet affordable — similar to some tops I get from local boutiques. I wore it with distressed jeans out for a casual dinner with friends and received several compliments! I'm not usually a fan of this color but I love it! I will be getting another one in army green soon." —Smalave76

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 10 colors).

    8. Stretchy jeggings that'll look like denim but feel like leggings — what more could you want in a pair of pants?

    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

    Get them from American Eagle for $44.96 (available in sizes 000–24, in short, regular, and long sizes, and seven styles).

    9. A tulip-hemmed sheath dress that'll look so chic with those new booties you just picked up. Don't you just love fall fashion!?, 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 a S and 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 $13.59+ (available in sizes S–2XL, two styles and 16 colors).

    10. A blanket scarf for anyone who is *always* cold, you know the type ;).


    Promising review: "This is a lot nicer than I thought it would be: it's really really soft and because it's so big, it's warm too if you wrap it around your neck a few times. It's also really versatile: the first time I wore it I ended up using it as a blanket. I wear it nearly every day and have gotten a lot of compliments on it. I might get another one (or two). Love this thing." —madison

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in 18 styles).

    11. A beanie you can throw on in a hurry to assure you still look casual and cute when your friends decide last minute (as per usual) TODAY is the day they want to indulge in some outdoor seasonal activities.,

    Promising review: "WOW! I did NOT expect to like this item so much!! I have never been someone who could ever pull off a beanie, or so I thought ... until I found this hat! I hated all beanies of this style because of that 'alien head' look they give you, but this one DOESN'T! (since you can fold the hat to your desired thickness). I am buying one in every color!! If you're hesitant like I was — DON'T BE! This hat is so comfy this time of year!!" —kellymfxo

    Get it from Amazon for $15.59 (available in 35 styles).

    12. A drop hem dress with puffy sleeves for a fabulous but comfortable style you'll get compliments on every time.

    Get it from Boohoo for $24 (available in sizes 4–14 and three styles).

    13. An open-front cardigan with pockets (!!!) so you can adorably shove your hands into 'em and pretend you're shy for a posed Insta pic., Amazon

    Promising review: "So soft and comfortable!! Fits really big though. I got an extra large, which is my normal size but definitely could’ve gone with a large. I would suggest sizing down. I love oversized sweaters though! It’s 100% acrylic so it doesn’t shrink, which is nice. It’s also super soft without being scratchy. I love the cable-knit design! It’s washed really well and I want it in all the other colors now!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 10 colors).

    14. Pull-on joggers that'll feel so soft against your skin you'll probably never want to take them off — luckily right now you don't have to!,

    Promising review: "Imagine microfiber, how it's light and has a smooth texture. Then imagine if microfiber and velvet had a baby. This is that baby! It's light and smooth like microfiber, but also has some of the warmth and texture (not *quite* fuzzy, but holds warmth still). VERY comparable to suede. Super super comfy, almost like you're wearing pajamas, these are the ultimate lounging sweats!" —Sabrina

    Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S–XL, 1X–3X and 120 styles).

    15. A lace top with a high neckline you will likely want to take far too many mirror pics in because the entire world deserves to see its beauty.


    Get it from AllSaints for $185 (available in sizes 00–10 and in two colors).

    16. 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 $18.89+ (available in women's sizes 4.5–12 and 16 styles).

    17. A reusable nonmedical face mask featuring a mystical print to help you channel *spooky vibes* this fall (and, honestly, all year long!).

    American Eagle

    Promising review: "I don’t even know how to start... this is honestly the best purchase I’ve ever made from AE. It’s the softest thing I’ve ever owned. Feels like I’m wearing a cloud. I’m 5-foot-9 and 160 lbs. I bought it in small and XS online, both fit but decided on the small for a more cozy fit." —Creasy

    Get it from American Eagle for $32.97 (available in sizes 2XS–2XL).

    19. A skater dress with a Peter Pan collar to let you channel your inner Wednesday Addams while also looking fabulous for fall.,

    Promising review: "I have been wanting one of these dresses for YEARS. Whenever I saw them in malls or stores they’d be $$$ and never had my size, or be really form fitting. After reading about every single review on here as well as examining every review picture I decided to get the XL. It fits wonderfully! It’s a little loose still which is great because I’m not crazy on form fitting, it also flatters my short curvy shape. I highly recommend for any spooky girls out there like me who are always in search of a cute dress to wear during fall and Halloween!" —Maureen

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 10 colors).

    20. A sweatshirt dress that'll become your go-to for those cold-but-not-freezing days where you want to be a bit covered up but don't quite need a parka yet., Amazon

    Promising review: "This is really comfortable and adorable! It's really cute to wear around the house but when I wear it out, I like to wear leggings with it to stay warm because of the thin material. Overall I really do like this long-sleeve shirt-dress." —Katy Mospanyuk

    Get it from Amazon for $15.89+ (available in sizes S–XL and 10 colors).

    21. Or a darling floral maxi dress you can use as an excuse to run ahead of your S.O. in a pumpkin patch 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 $24.99+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and 38 colors).

    22. A crewneck bodysuit so you won't have to fumble with trying to get the perfect tuck every time you take a bathroom break.

    Good American

    Promising review: "I purchased the crew neck black bodysuit and have to say it’s the best bodysuit I have ever purchased. The fit and quality are amazing! I loved it so much I just purchased another bodysuit and I can’t wait to get it!" —Andrea D.

    Get it from Good American for $105 (available in sizes 0–5).

    23. Durable Lucky Brand booties so you can look fashionable without breaking an ankle, which is #goals if you ask me.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed,

    I have these babies in both black and toffee — they are a staple in my winter and fall wardrobes. I'm not sure what I'd do without them, honestly. They're so versatile and truly so comfortable. I'm not a girl who is very comfortable in heels, so the fact that these have a TEENY tiny block heel I can walk around wearing without feeling like I'm going to teeter over is a game-changer. I often refer to them as my 'adult' booties, since they make me feel like a refined, classy lady. I love that they have two side zippers, making them super easy to get on and off. They fit true to size and I'd recommend them to anyone looking for a basic bootie to wear throughout multiple seasons.

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes 5–12 and 39 styles).

    24. A V-neck dress you'll want to buy in a whole slew of colors to wear to the many fall and winter weddings you have lined up.,

    I have this dress in black and, despite its cheap price, think it's fantastic for a wedding. I wore it on a girls' night out and got tons of compliments. One of my friends also has it in blue and wore it to my wedding! We both found that it was super flattering on us even though we have different body types.

    Promising review: "Y'ALL. I do not have enough good things to say about this dress. This is the second one I've bought in a different color and it does nothing but impress. It is knee-length so there's no accidental flashing, it has adjustable straps that cross in the back for a great fit, and it HAS POCKETS. It can be dressed up or down, I wore it to a wedding as well as to an afternoon of winery hopping. It's THAT versatile!" —Alex fo Falex

    Get it from Amazon for $17.96+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 34 colors).

    25. Asymmetrical earrings you can mix and match to create a ton of fresh new ~looks~ on the daily.

    Get a set of six from The Apollo Box for $11.96.

    26. A ruffled baby doll dress you can wear all year long — pair it with tights and a denim jacket for colder months and as-is during the summer.,

    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 $18.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and seven colors).

    27. 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).

    28. A chic coat you can count on to keep you warm during the winter while still looking as fabulous as ever.

    30. A tie-dye sweatpants and long-sleeve set for a groovy option you can lounge in while rewatching That '70s Show for the hundredth time.

    Promising review: "I purchased a medium in the tie-dye blue and white set. The pants fit very nicely, and the shirt also fits great. Both pieces also mix and match with other items in my closet easily. The quality of the fabric is GREAT! I was very surprised to see the inside of the set has a nice soft lining, and the outside is very good soft fabric." —Emerson and Amy

    Get them from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 17 styles).

    33. Slip-on booties with a chunky heel so you can channel your inner-diva and strut like you're walking the runway even though in reality you're in the aisle of the supermarket., Amazon

    Promising review: "Beautiful shoe for a gorgeous price! I've had them for a week now, and I've worn them to work every day (8–10 hours with significant walking around). I have no blisters, and the only discomfort I have is in my calves because I'm not used to wearing heels every day. I even bike to and from work (2 miles each way) and I've had no problems." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $18.37+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and eight styles).

    34. A teddy coat you'll get so many compliments on you won't want to tell anyone you snagged it for less than $35.


    My best friend and I both picked up this coat two years 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 33 styles).

They are really sturdy and don't slip out of my hair whether it's straightened or naturally in waves. The set comes with 10 so I was able to share with my sister, too!

    Get a set of 10 from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in two styles).

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed,

    One of my friends actually bought a pair of these for her entire bachelorette party a few months ago. We all have very different face shapes and they were shockingly flattering on every last one of us!

    Promising review: "Constantly asked if these are YSL sunglasses. You can tell they’re cheaper when handling but apparently no one else notices when they’re on. Highly recommend, especially if you’re someone who loses or breaks your sunglasses easily." —Katie K.

    Get them from Amazon for $9.91+ (available in 17 styles).

    39. Classic ballerina flats with an elastic strap to make you feel so elegant whether you're wearing them with a ballgown or your favorite jeans.

    Promising review: "Fits true to size. I wear a 6.5 and have a narrow foot and high arch. These shoes have a little extra padding so it is a perfect fit and they are comfortable. They look adorable and are so versatile. I usually don't wear flats because they make my feet hurt due to my high arches, but these were great and you can't beat the price." —Erica Bolanos

    Get them from Amazon for $9.89+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and 22 styles).

    40. An oversized flannel, so soft you won't want to take it off even after you've spent a day feeding animals at a local farm.

    Cotton On

    I have this flannel in sky blue and when I tell you I've been counting down the days until the weather is cold enough for me to break it out — I mean it wholeheartedly. It's *so* soft I just want to wrap myself up in it forever. It comes in so many other styles I'll likely be ordering another very soon.

    Get it from Cotton On for $39.99 (available in sizes 2XS–2XL and 12 styles).

    41. Allbirds woven sneakers, a must-have for anyone who wants comfortable but cute shoes to accompany them on their daily errands.

    allbirds / Via, Allbirds

    Promising review: "These are really comfortable and light! I've been able to wear them on warm days. I can't say I have any complaints. They're really great slip-on sneakers and I highly recommend! I do think they run slightly small. I normally wear an 8, and I ordered an 8. The right shoe pinches a tiny bit but they've already stretched a little." —Megan P.

    Get them from Allbirds for $95 (available in sizes 5–11 and 17 styles).

    42. Nisolo's Emma d'Orsay Oxfords, because they're being retired soon and you won't want to live with the thought of *what could've been* in regards to your fall/winter wardrobe.

    Promising review: "These shipped very quickly, and look so amazing! The quality is so good and they’re made well. My feet are wider than most, so ordering shoes online can be nerve-wracking. However, these fit perfectly and look very slim and professional. Can’t wait for the weather to cool down so I can wear them more often!" —Alexa S.

    Get them from Nisolo for $185 (available in sizes 5–11 and four styles).

    43. A midi dress with bohemian vibes that'll help you embrace the last remaining warm days of the year.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    I recently 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* busy 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).

    44. And 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 $8.98+ (available in women's sizes XS–XL and 12 styles).
