    1. A knit tank dress that *delivers* on seasonal versatility! You can wear this dress alone while relaxing on a hot summer day, or style it for your favorite fall activities by pairing it with a denim jacket and your favorite pair of booties.


    Promising review: "I love the bold color. The fabric seems to be of good quality and is not see-through. The dress is loose-fitting and very comfortable. You can wear it alone, add a jean jacket or cardigan to change up. Looks great with wedges, sandals, and sneakers. The price was a plus." —Happy Shopper

    Price: $10 (available in sizes XS–4X and in six colors)

    2. A sweater-vest, because what's a better way to pay homage to the fashion of the '90s? This sweater works with or without a collared shirt underneath; paired with light-wash denim jeans and your favorite pair of platform sandals, it will quickly become your go-to outfit this fall.


    Promising review: "Perfect vest! I’ve always been wanting to get vests and I buy clothing from Wild Fable all of the time, so when these came out I was so happy!! I got all of the colors of this vest! True to size and super comfy!" —Kawaii

    Price: $20 (available in sizes XS–4X and in five colors)

    Promising review: "Hands down the most perfect jeans ever! I never thought I would wear nonskinny jeans but these are so comfortable! I’m 5'6" and around 140 lbs, and size 8 fit perfectly for me. It lands around my ankle, which is perfect to pair with sandals, flats, sneakers, heels, or booties! Literally the most versatile jeans ever and I am so excited to wear them!" —iwhc1020

    Price: $22 (available in sizes 00–18, 00 short–18 short, and 00 long–18 long)

    4. A balloon-sleeve tiered maxi dress, because what's better than wearing a dress (and by that I mean not wearing pants) almost every single day? Wearing a dress that looks put-together yet feels as cozy as your favorite band tee, that's what!


    Promising review: "Literally the most comfortable, adorable dress. So versatile and easy to just throw on — I will be living in this. I have orange (perfect for fall) and just bought the blush color as well. Please keep making dresses and even jumpsuits out of this material — it washes/dries like a dream and is so comfortable you could sleep in it. Please also keep making this dress and add more colors!!! Love love love." —sarah77777

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and 1X–4X and in two colors)

    5. A long-sleeve peplum top that feels like loungewear, yet looks polished enough to wear to work or out. You'll see yourself rocking this everywhere you go — from the office to a romantic dinner date with your boo.

    9. A distressed denim miniskirt, because who *wouldn't* want to wear a piece of clothing this cute every single day? Minis like this are a total multi-season closet MVP — they provide a breeze on hot summer days but can quickly act as a fall layer when the temperature starts to drop.

    Promising review: "I love how this skirt is short, but not to where it hikes up in the back as you walk. And it's so cute and looks way more expensive than it actually is." —Kameron York

    Price: $27.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL)

    11. A pair of cropped jeans, because denim forms to a person's body over time, meaning that the more you wear these stylish jeans, the cozier they will become.


    Promising review: "These are so cute! Really thick and they fit me perfectly, true to size. I’m 5'0" and I got the 10 short and they’re actually cropped, which for me is hard to come by. In love with the quality and the look, these jeans completely beat my expectations. At a great price too! Buy them!" —gretchy

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes 14W–30W and in two colors)

    15. A ruffle-sleeve sweater-vest, because cottagecore is the thing, but the actual fabrics they used to create those cute looks in the 19th century were really uncomfortable. Thankfully, this soft-knit sweater-vest delivers on the prairie-esque style, while feeling as cozy as your favorite sweater.

    Promising review: "I’m so glad that I purchased the crewneck sweater! This is a great piece to add to your Fall wardrobe. I purchased the sweater in green (XS) and the color is vibrant and the material is soft! It looks great with a high-waist skirt or jeans/pant." —Bigcitygirl

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and 1X–4X and in four colors)

    Price: $20 (available in sizes XS–XL and in three colors)

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes 00–18 and 14W–26W and in five colors)

    19. A mock turtleneck, because what's better than wearing a turtleneck? Wearing one with a mock neckline that does ~everything~ for your style while never constricting your neck.

    Promising review: "IM SO HAPPY THEY BROUGHT THIS BACK IN BLACK!! I slept on this style of shirt last year and by the time I got to it, the black was out of stock. I have two in the olive/dark-gold color and the greige color they had last year, and it is one of the most comfortable basics I’ve ever had. It’s so easy to dress up or dress down to suit whatever you want it for, and the weight of the material is versatile to wear in warmer months and layer for colder months. If you need updated basics, get this. Add to cart, proceed to checkout. It runs true to size." —Jess

    Price: $12 (available in sizes XS–XXL and 1X-4X and in five colors)

    20. A breezy V-neck blouse that is the perfect addition to the section of your closet dedicated to Sunday Funday. You can pair this with linen pants for a beach day, or wear it to the zoo with a midi skirt.

    Price: $27.99 (available in sizes XS–4XL and in three colors)

    21. A pair of tie-dye joggers, since "loungewear" essentially means clothes to wear while catching your favorite episodes. Why not look THIS cute while tuning into some New Girl?


    Promising review: "So soft and comfy! They’re super cute and warm (not too warm though) and they fit perfectly. I was going to size up because I was scared they’d be too short or tight but they really fit true to size! GO BUY THESE!!" —Feli

    Price: $20 (available in sizes XS–XL)

    22. A round-chain-link gold-plated bracelet that you'll wear so often, you'll start to feel bare on the days you forgot it at home.

    Price: $24.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in four colors)

    24. A basic white tee, since a white T-shirt will ALWAYS be in constant rotation in everyone's closet. White T-shirts are great because you can wear them with your favorite pair of jeans, make them a part of your cozy at-home ensembles, or even layer them under a blazer for a streamlined look. All the possibilities you can ever hope for, and guess what? It costs under 10 bucks.

    Promising review: "I wear this every week to work, where I interact with 100+ customers daily. Over the past three or so months, I’ve had at least 50 friends of people at work comment positively and/or ask where they can get one." —Nunya

    Price: $8 (available in sizes XS–XXL and 1X–4X and in six colors)

    25. A cozy open-front cardigan sweater that'll basically feel like you're wrapping yourself in your favorite blanket all day long.

    Promising review: "I’m surprised how soft this is! It kept me warm and cozy while visiting the mountains in June. The color was like a charcoal black and matched everything really well. This will become a staple in my closet!" —Becky

    Price: $25 (available in sizes XS–XXL and 1X–4X and in five colors)

    26. A pair of moisture-wicking high-rise leggings with hidden pockets, because leggings make you want to wear them time and time again — they are comfortable enough for going on long morning runs, yet cute enough to wear while running errands in town. How many clothing items can pack a punch like a solid pair of leggings?!


    Promising review: "I needed new leggings to wear while exercising. I ordered these after looking at reviews and am very happy I did! They fit perfectly! The length is perfect too. I wore them on a 4-mile walk this morning and the waist stayed in place the entire time. Would definitely recommend and would buy again!" —wolfmama

    Price: $35 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 11 colors)

    27. A textured pullover sweater so you'll have something that will look great with every single skirt you own, while keeping you feeling as cozy and warm as your favorite blanket.

    30. A leopard-print short-sleeve shirtdress, because the best staples are both stylish and comfortable. This dress SERVES fashion with its printed design, and feels as cozy as an oversized button-up.


    Promising review: "Love this dress so much! It runs a little large but that’s perfect. I would hands down recommend it and hope they bring it back in more colors next year. Worth the price!" —allie84

    Price: $36.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and 1X–4X)
