    1. A pair of wide-leg ankle pants for anyone who's tired of tight jeans and prefers a loose and breezy option.


    Promising review: "These are perfection! Breezy and light fabric, perfect length, and cute paper bag–style waist. They are the kind of pant that can be dressed up or down for any occasion!"—Nordstrom Customer

    Price: $59 (available in Petite: XXS–XL Regular: XS–XXL and six colors)

    2. A versatile cotton V-neck tank so your closet is stocked with the basics, in all kinds of colors, for the spring and summer months ahead.


    Promising review: "This is literally the best tank! I plan to buy more of this style because it is so perfect. It is true to size and the v-neck and sleeve holes are cut just right for a modest and comfortable, no-show look and feel." —NordstromCustomer

    Price: $18.50 (available in sizes XXS–3X and nine colors)

    3. An underwire bra with fierce embroidery on the top to add just the right amount of texture and make it feel more special.


    Promising review: "This bra provides great support and can honestly be worn with dresses or blouses with plunging necklines. The J-hook allows you to adjust the straps for wear under racer back and criss cross tops. Use of the J-hook also provides extra support, lift, and a minimizing appearance. I want them in every color." — CarmenKryptonite

    Price: $69 (available in sizes 32GG–46DD, and four colors)

    4. A slide-on sandal that'll give you that fun beach vibe you really love to rock.


    Promising review: "Such a pretty slide. These have significantly more foot coverage than I thought they would. Beautiful color. Great for spring!" —Lolalie

    Price: $68.95 (available in sizes 5–12 and eight colors)

    5. A printed midi skirt so you can strut your way in and out of fancy events like the true commander of the room you are.


    Promising review: "Love this skirt! It fits true to size and was snug enough that it showed some curves, but was still very comfortable for walking around. Also length is like the photo shows, a bit longer than a true midi. Great print that is not too loud." —UrbanTwentySomething

    Price: $148 (available in 0–24 and three colors)

    6. A pair of paper bag–waist shorts with a ruffled effect and bold belt that'll do all the work for you. Throw on a simple t-shirt and be out the door!


    Promising review: "As a thick-thighed babe, these shorts are a dream! I am a size 18 and XL fits very comfortably. Not too short, but not too long. Very high-wasted."—NordstromCustomer

    Price: $45 (available in sizes XS–XXL)

    7. A pair of high-rise ankle jeans, because you've been on the hunt for the perfect pair and here they are just in time for spring!


    Promising review: "As the majority of reviews say, they really are awesome jeans. Right on trend with color and shape!" —Wkmom

    Price: $98 (available in sizes 23–32)

    8. A water-resistant raincoat with a lightweight hood that'll brighten up even the cloudiest of spring days.


    Promising review: "This raincoat is the real deal — it's not just a raincoat look-alike. Great all-around spring raincoat for unpredictable weather, all the while staying fashion forward. More pockets than every other coat you own. Perfect colors. Infinitely adjustable. Runs a little large." —cappuccinocamper

    Price: $59.98 (originally $120, available in sizes XXS–3X and three colors)

    9. A breezy tie-front wrap top you can wear alone for a comfortable fit that's still stylish or and add a belt for a more polished look.


    Promising review: "This top is sweet, flattering, and perfect for casual date nights. It's cropped so it looks great with high waisted jeans or a skirt. The material is woven and slightly stretchy, and it's 100% cotton and doesn't wrinkle or look weird. The tie on the side is cute without being too precious. And the price is great. I'd recommend!" —Juni946

    Price: $24.99 (originally $45, available in sizes XXS–3X and five colors)

    10. A frayed hem denim miniskirt you should stock up on multiple pairs of, because you'll be in these all summer long.


    Promising review: "This skirt is true to size and fits fantastic. It's the perfect length and so comfortable. I can dress it up or down and it looks great with everything. Definitely a wardrobe staple." —LexiSC

    Price: $27.49 (available in sizes 8–12)

    11. A cover-up maxi dress to bring the comfy feeling you love from your home out to the beach or by the pool.


    Promising review: "I love this, it is a lounge around kind of outfit. Good for hot summer evenings entertaining. Fits true to size with plenty of room." —NordstromCustomer

    Price: $68 (available in sizes XS–XL and two colors)

    12. A set of semiprecious stone Kate Spade stud earrings to wear with pretty much any outfit. Add a pair of earrings and all of a sudden your look will feel complete.


    Promising review: "Love these! I also think the size is great, definitely not small. I bought the hot pink and turquoise and love how they stand out in my blond hair. One awesome point, the post sits right in the center of the earring so they stay in the middle of your ear. Love that!" —Lis23

    Price: $38 (available in two colors)

    13. A tie-front v-neck tee so you don't have to put too much thought into what you'll wear on casual Friday. This, you'll wear this!


    Promising Review: "This top was just what I was looking for. I bought both the white and the yellow. The material is light and the cut allows for you to still stay cool even in 90-degree weather. Looks great with jeans, maxi skirt, or linen capris!" —NordstromCustomer

    Price: $39 (available in sizes Petite: XS–M Regular: XS–XXL and six colors)

    14. A ruffled tee with a subtle racerback design so your shoulders can see the sun after months of hibernation. You can ~tank~ me later!


    Promising review: "This should be your go to top of the summer! It can be dressed up or down. Fits perfect. I was hesitant about the racer back ruffles but they are rather cute and flattering on." —Willmom222

    Price: $39 (available in sizes Petite: XXS–XL Regular: XS–XXL and four colors)

    15. A pair of high-waisted four-button jeans with a fringed ankle, because you used to own a black pair but can't find them for the life of you!


    Promising review: "I’m obsessed with these jeans. They are the perfect combo of structure and stretch. They hold you in while staying supremely comfortable. So flattering! True to size." —sarahsarahsarahg

    Price: $135 (available in sizes 23–32)

    16. An open-front cardigan sweater with side-slits, front pockets, and a warm-but-not-too-warm feeling that'll have you rocking this at the office regularly.


    Promising review: "Great oversized cardigan! It's very soft and the perfect length. I'll be wearing this all year round. I can picture it over a tank and cutoffs on cool summer nights and with leggings and boots come winter. I'll be ordering in another color for sure. Also worth noting, I wore it a few times already with no pilling, which is a happy surprise. I'm a true medium and I ordered a small based on other reviews. It's still very slouchy and comfy." —CStarr

    Price: $98 (available in sizes XXS–3X and three colors)

    17. A pair of soft-footbed Birkenstock sandals, because they'll form so well to your feet you'll feel like you aren't wearing shoes at all. And if you wear them to the beach, that can be a reality!


    Promising review: "Love the vibrant copper color. These are really shiny. Like my other Birkenstocks these start out a little stiff, but break in after a few wears and fit like a glove! They have a comfy footbed; these will soon be my summer go-to shoes." —FloridaBeachBabe

    Price: $109.95 (available in sizes 5–11.5 and four colors)

    18. A sleeveless muscle tank that'll be a ~tee~riffic addition to your summer wardrobe.


    Promising review: "Soft and flowy. Love the color. I know I will get lots of use out of this top. Under cardigans in the cooler months and then alone in the warmer months. Love the higher neckline. Plus, regular bra straps don't show!" — SLN24

    Price: $32 (available in sizes Petite: XXS–XL Regular: XS–XXL and four colors)

    19. A platform wedge sandal that'll be your summer ~sole mate~.


    Promising review: "I bought these in tan leather and they are the most comfortable wedges I've ever worn. They go with everything and I've received so many compliments on how cute they are!" —MCepak

    Price: $79.95 (available in sizes 4–13 and nine colors)

    20. A woven tote with an over-the-shoulder handle design, magnetic snap closure, and zip and wall pockets inside, making this your new go-to travel and beach bag.

    Price: $69

    21. A sleeveless jumpsuit to make sure you're breezy and comfortable all summer long, thanks to the wide-leg bottoms and spaghetti straps.


    Promising review: "Love this jumpsuit! So easy to throw on and go. I could see wearing it to work with a blazer, a summer wedding, or to brunch this fall with a denim jacket. Can’t wait for the Midwest to thaw so I can wear it more." —Twad

    22. A leather biker jacket with zippered cuffs and edgy studs on the collar for the badass look of your dreams.

    Price: $89 (available in sizes XS–4X and two colors).
