    1. A hot pink yoke dress with a mock turtleneck, pockets, and flutter detailing that's sure to have you looking egg-ceptionally fashionable without putting in too much effort.

    Target

    Promising review: "Omgggg this does not look like a 28 dollar dress! I bought this to wear at a black tie optional and it did not disappoint! I got the pink one and I paired it with cheetah print heels!" —NCMon

    Price: $27.99 (available in sizes XS–1X,3X,4X and two colors)

    2. A Peter Pan collar tank top so versatile, you can literally wear this shirt the rest of your life and be comfortable and stylish. Pair this cotton top with your favorite light jeans and some pixie dust for a complete look.

    Target

    Promising review: "I am a huge fan of the Peter Pan Collar tops and when I saw this one I knew I had to have it. I chose a M in the black one because cotton tends to shrink. The shirt is a softer, thicker material and I love the length. I am 5'6 and 139 lbs and I did not have an issue with my bra showing on the side. I recommend this top because it's simple but classy. I can see an issue with the collar being that it is a different material, but if you turn it inside out when washing and hang dry, the collar should lay flat. I love it and can't wait to add a pair of leopard flats for a timeless fall look." —Angelina

    Price: $15 (available in sizes XS–4X and four colors)

    3. A mock turtleneck T-shirt that is basically an upgraded version of your most comfortable tee — one that you can wear to meetings, dinner parties, and dates.
