Nordstrom, Heather Braga/BuzzFeed

One of our editors, Heather Braga, *loves* the fall, almost as much as she loves these leggings — here's her take: "I splurged on these and I don't know why I waited so long! They're super soft on the inside, edgy on the outside, and just freakin' fabulous. I love pairing them with an oversized sweater for a look that's stylish but still cozy during the winter and wearing them with a denim jacket and a graphic tee in spring and fall."

Promising review: "Spanx are comfortable — I could even lift and stretch in these! Breathable as well! They give great shape and DO NOT camel toe! No wrinkling/scrunching of that area! They do have more silvery sheen to them, and a waistband (which give a more casual look)." —Nordstrom Customer

model wearing the black dress

Promising review: "I have many purchases from Eloquii but this dress is beautiful; the eyelet material looks very expensive. I usually wear 18/20, did size up to 20; had read the reviews about the lining not having much give and it is true, so glad I did size up!!! I purchased the dress in black; it is gorgeous! The length is perfect! You won’t be disappointed with this one; the quality is as expected. I definitely would recommended." —Eloquii Customer

reviewer showing a close up of the black shiny bodysuit

Promising review: "I purchased this bodysuit to wear to a concert and didn’t think I would ever wear it again, but I was PLEASANTLY shocked with how amazing it turned out. The fit was perfect.

Promising review: "So I haven't worn jeans in about two years because I can never find a pair that are flattering on me. I was expecting them to be tight, the material really stiff and just generally uncomfortable but I was pleasantly surprised. They're actually a little bit loose on me which I like, and the material is thick but soft with a little bit of stretch which makes them really comfortable. I like the high rise, it is quite high but I find it flattering on me." —Levi's Customer

Simple Retro

I have this exact sweatshirt and let me tell you, the material is softer than a baby's bum. The exterior has a brushed quality that makes it appear more faded and vintagey, while the interior is *so* toasty. I love the way it looks with blue denim, black leggings, and gray sweats... I even popped a cream-colored turtleneck under it — and received a bunch of compliments. Plus, it's a very unique color that's totally appropriate for the fall and winter.

Simple Retro is a small biz that feels like you're thrifting but without the hassle. They sell a vast collection of vintage-inspired clothing and accessories, including a new release that drops every Wednesday, and have recently debuted a Vintage Map, which features a curated collection of vintage pieces that celebrate style from decades past.

Reviewer wearing green set

Promising review: "I rely heavily on retail therapy to cheer me up and, as you can imagine, I've needed a lot of that in 2020. But what to buy when there's nothing to do and I never leave my house? A matching sweatsuit. I saw this on a BuzzFeed Shopping list and now it's my go-to quarantine ensemble. The top is cropped above the belly button so you definitely need the very high-waisted pants. I will be buying this in at LEAST one more color to get me through this Midwest winter." —Mary M.

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

22. A pair of high-waisted crossover leggings for your best-fitting leggings yet and a bestseller for a ~buttload~ of reasons. One being that they're so buttery soft, they feel as if you're not wearing a darn thing. Easy and breezy, perfect for an at-home or on-the-go lifestyle.


Promising review: "As an athlete and avid weightlifter, I am always looking for leggings that fit my athletic build. I bought Lululemon and they constantly fall down at the waist. I bought these and I have them in three colors and I love them for the gym or any activity!" —Aerie Customer

Get them from Aerie for $44.95 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and 14 colors).

23. A ruched crop top you'll want to keep serious tabs on since it's ideal for any wardrobe — it's so versatile it can be worn as casual or as dressy as you like! And you can customize the length...just peep the drawstrings.

Model wearing the black faux leather jacket

Promising review: "I am blown away. Frankly held out no hope this under-$50 jacket was as good as the reviews suggested, but I took a chance and I'm SOOOO glad I did. The positive reviews are real. It's cute, it fits well, and it's warm enough for daytime. I have big upper arms and the stretch was perfect. I am normally a 'you get what you pay for' person, but this is way way better than you'd expect for the price. The flare at the bottom is really flattering too. And it does look like leather. I went up a size so I could wear sweaters underneath and the sizing was perfect. Take a chance on this one." —Indalu

Get it from Amazon for $45.99+ (available in sizes XS–3X and 13 colors).

27. Square-toe boots soon to be the pièce de résistance of your 2022 wardrobe. Because there's no greater feeling than stepping into the new year with a super-trendy, comfortable closet staple that you can wear with literally every single outfit.,

Promising review: "Very comfy and great looking boots! Just like the picture. The heel height makes me taller but isn’t too steep to walk naturally in. Zipper is smooth to pull up and it stays up and doesn’t creep down over time. Overall very happy with this purchase." —Rebecca Henry

Get it from Amazon for $69.90 (available in sizes 5–12 and three colors).

28. A fleece sweatshirt for a buttery-soft basic made a little more delicious by the accompanying ruffle details — they definitely won't go unnoticed at your next team meeting.

Model wearing dusty pink sweatshirt

Promising review: "I struggle to find jeans because I am short, so I always have to buy a short inseam or petite sizing, and I've been looking for gray ones forever. I was surprised that an Amazon brand had this nice a pair of jeans; they remind me of my Gap and Levi's jeans." —Mimi C.

Get them from Amazon for $24.80+ (available in sizes 24–32, short, regular, and long and in 16 colors).

model wearing the brown, beige, and red plaid jacket

Get it from Madewell for $138 (available in sizes XXS–XXL).

32. A knit set for *the* matching outfit to take the guesswork out of dressing stylishly this winter. Because we could all use a more put-together look to get us through that one outdoor commitment we have a month., Amazon

Promising review: "I love this set. The quality is good, the skirt is a bit thinner than the sweater so I wore Spanx underneath. It’s soft, warm, and cozy. Material isn’t itchy. I will have these pieces on repeat. Buy it!" —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon $48.56+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and four colors).

33. A pair of dressy pants disguised as comfy joggers available in a bunch of plaid and gingham patterns. No one has to know that you're in complete h-e-a-v-e-n the moment you slip these on — but they will know how incredible you look while doing so.,

34. A wide-leg jumpsuit with a customizable drawstring waist that demands to be added to your closet — because a relaxed-meets-productive look is what you'll be striving for from now 'til the end of the year. Plus, this looks great alone or paired with a turtleneck underneath (I can attest!).


I have a very similar jumpsuit in my wardrobe and have been wearing it *nonstop* with everything from bare arms to a cropped cardi and, yes, even a turtleneck. So this piece is what I deem essential and customizable in more ways than one!

Promising review: "I cannot believe that Amazon converted me into a jumpsuit lover! You have one item that makes a surprisingly flattering outfit. You can lounge at home or add a denim jacket or blazer and head out in this. I cannot believe the comfort and confidence I feel when I'm in this! So so good and this jumpsuit has won me over." —Kindle Customer

35. A mid-to-long-line coat for an outdoor look that only looks expensive and will keep you warm in weather that is best described as "OMG, I can see my breath."

Reviewer wearing the navy coat

Promising review: "I wanted a longish coat in this basic style. I started by ordering a big name brand, but the fit was so weird and wrong, I returned it. So, I ordered this one for one-third the price I'd paid for the fancy brand, and holy moley, I love this coat! It's a boxy fit, for sure, but I actually like that because I usually layer and have on both a shirt and bulky sweater beneath it. I've been wearing this coat now for several weeks, through snow and single-digit temperatures, and it's surprisingly warm and very comfortable. It's holding up well. I love the deep pockets, and I love the long length. For this price, you really can't go wrong! I like it enough I'm seriously considering ordering a second one in a different color." —Mntnstorm

Get it from Amazon for $62.80 (available in sizes XS–XL and four colors).
