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

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 cropped moto jacket that'll have you looking cooler than the other side of the pillow.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "So cute and edgy, it spices up the laziest outfits, not to mention how warm it'll be for fall and winter! I can't wait to start wearing this more. Def don't let the price scare you, so worth the money and you'll get the wear out of it." —rach2930

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $99 (available in sizes XS–L).

    2. 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 $8.99+ (available in three sizes and in 22 colors).

    3. 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.


    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 $9.99+ (available in four styles, and find a similar plus size version for $14.99+).

    4. A faux shearling jacket to keep you nice and warm and remind you to stop and smell the *metaphorical* roses since, unless you bought yourself some, you likely won't find any popping up in nature this winter.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $44.99 (available in sizes 0X–3X).

    5. 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: "I love thermals for fall and this is perfect! Super comfy and a bit oversized to wear off the shoulder! Love!" —Life With Cam

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 10 colors).

    6. Or 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 $10.59+ (available in sizes S–2XL, two styles and six colors).

    7. Speaking of booties, you'll love these uniquely colored booties you can break out when you want to add a lil' edge to your basic fall outfits.

    Frye & Co.

    Get the from Frye & Co. for $119 (available in sizes 5.5, 6.5–11).

    8. A backpack that doubles as a powerbank to make sure both your phone and your accessory game are ~charged up~.


    Promising review: "Built-in wireless charging makes it super convenient for charging phones on-the-go. Phones without wireless charging capabilities can be charged using the USB port. The material makes it look classy and cool, making it fit for college students as well as professionals to use. Bag is waterproof and highly recommended for carrying electronics (laptop, tablets, mobile phone). It has lot of pockets for organizing cables and different small stuff. Even with so much of space inside, it looks compact from the outside. I am writing this review as part of a contest." —JigglyPuff

    Get it from Walmart for $99 (available in four colors).

    9. A blanket scarf anyone who defines themselves as "basic" will absolutely want to have in their wardrobe.


    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).

    10. 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 $12.98 (available in 35 styles).

    12. 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 $6.98+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 10 colors).

    13. Or a casual knit sweater that'll literally let you wear your heart on your sleeve.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this sweater!! I think it's probably my favorite piece I have purchased the last few months. I wanted to have a bit of a baggy look and be able to wear this with leggings or a pair of jeans so I ordered a large. I just ordered another one in red and can't wait for it to get here. The material is really warm and comfy not scratchy like I thought it would be." —Nicole Julum

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

    14. A mock turtleneck bodysuit so you don't have to fumble with trying to get the perfect tuck every time you take a bathroom break.


    Get it from Target for $16 (available in sizes XS–2XL).

    15. 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 $14.99+ (available in women's sizes 4.5–12 and 10 styles).

    16. A velvet number with a collar and a ruffled hem to help you make a serious style statement.


    Promising review: "This dress exceeded my expectations! The material is beautiful, it's springy/bouncy, the color is lush, and the fit is gorgeous. It's just what I wanted. The velvet hugs and slinks against the body, so somehow the dress comes off as sexy despite the baggy shape. The buttons are gold mirrors sewn with sturdy thread and the ruffle at the bottom is actually elastic! So there's no tug as I step. I'm going to wear it to the theatre this week and romping with my five-year-old this weekend. Perfect." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in six colors and sizes S–XL)

    17. A fuzzy sherpa pullover featuring a trendy buffalo check pattern that'll make you never want to experience warm temperatures again just so you can wear it endlessly.

    American Eagle

    I have this blessing of a pullover and I've never been so happy to see temperatures beginning to drop. It is SO snuggly. You can find me wearing it over workout clothes on my way to the gym, while working at my desk, heading to the supermarket, or even heading to brunch. It's versatile and just super warm — an absolute necessity.

    Get it from American Eagle for $99.95 (available in sizes 2XS–2XL).

    18. Or a leopard print wrap skirt for a look that'll be ~spot-on~ whether you pair it with delicate heels or chunky platform boots.


    Promising review: "Absolutely love this cheap skirt!!! It looks exactly like something you’d pay $49 for at H&M. Good quality, I paired it with a beautiful black tank and got soooo many compliments! Shipping took about two weeks, but totally worth it!" —Lexusvuitton

    Get it from Amazon for $1+ (available in sizes S-2XL and 15 colors).

    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 seven colors).

    20. A Deathly Hallows Loungefly handbag with a delicate gold handle and a stunning recreation of the Elder Wander that'll leave any Potterhead (or fashionista) feeling spellbound.


    Promising review: "Beyond beautiful bag. Love the color, the wand/Deathly Hallow details, and the bag material is good quality. Would buy again if they did a restock." —TaylorTorture

    Get it from BoxLunch for $63.92.

    21. A sweatshirt dress will 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 $14.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 10 colors).

    22. 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 $20.99+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and 28 colors).

    23. A mesh top with incredible dragon details that'll make you feel like a warrior each time you catch a glance at your own reflection.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $39 (available in sizes XS–L).

    24. Or a striped pullover you can throw on when you're late for brunch but don't want your friends to tease you about it for the umpteenth time.


    Promising review: "This is an absolute adorable sweater! I love the combination of colors and the quality of the material is great. The fit is flattering and it runs true to size. Would highly recommend this sweater as a gift or an addition to your fall/winter wardrobe." —Amanda Greer

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

    25. 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 recently on a girl's 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

    Promising review: "Super cute and comfy dress! The fit is true to size and I’m wearing a small! The length is also good and I’m 5’3. Definitely want to get more colors!" —Tina

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and eight colors).

    29. Or 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).

    30. A collared plaid coat you can count on to keep you warm during the winter while still looking as fabulous as ever.


    I bought this coat in preparation for the sure-to-be freezing New York winter that's in my future. It's a fun mix of colors, has a great shape to it, and isn't itchy — just warm! I also really love the oversized buttons and can't wait to break it out.

    33. A cocktail dress that'll perfectly fit the vibe of your office's fancy holiday party — there will be zero freaking out over what to wear this year!, Amazon

    Promising review: "Bought this dress for my bridal shower and fit beautifully! The material is great and the fit is better....I was skeptical about buying it without trying it on and especially from amazon. You won't be disappointed!!

    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).

    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 that loses or breaks your sunglasses easily" —Katie K.

    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

    flagandanthemco / Via

    I have one of these flannels (the pink one!) and cannot believe how soft it is. I basically live in flannels from the end of September through March, since IMO they keep my body the perfect temperature, and was more than happy to add this one into my line up. I also really like how many of them have another design on the inside, so when I roll up my sleeve it shows of a little something extra!

    Get it from Flag and Anthem for $59.50 (available in sizes XS–2XL and in an array of colors).

    44. Allbirds woven sneakers, a must-have for commuters who want a comfortable but cute shoe to accompany them on their trek back and forth to work.

    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).

    45. Or Ryka training shoes with pops of color throughout that might just motivate you to get up in time for a pre-work morning sweat session.


    I recently picked up a pair of these white shoes after wearing down the soles of my previous sneakers. They're easy enough to slip into without having to re-tie them every time, are super lightweight, and feel really supportive. I like that they have a fun addition of color to them but aren't over-the-top so the match the majority of my workout clothes.

    Get them from Ryka for $89.99 (available in sizes 5–11, medium and wide widths, and two styles).

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