    1. 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 piling, 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).

    2. A professional v-neck blouse so you don't have to put too much thought into what you'll wear on Monday. This, you'll wear this!


    Promising Review: "This is a great blouse that goes well with jeans and work or dress pants. It has a silky flowing movement and can be dressed up or down. A nice addition to any wardrobe!" —IrishKatie

    Price: $42.28 (originally $89, available in sizes 0X–4X and four colors).

    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: $79.90 (originally $120, available in sizes XXS–3X and seven colors).

    13. A pleated-sleeve blouse so you can be professional without having to think too much about the layers of your outfit.


    Promising review: "Love this shirt! Perfect for work with capris or denim days, but still professional. The pleated trim on the sleeves is a perfect touch. The shirt is flowy, so not fitted. Material is thin and great for spring and summer. I wore this to an off-site work event with jeans and heels and it was a nice mix of work and play." —Bliss2223

    Promising review: "Love this dress. It’s so hard to find dresses with short sleeves and this one is perfect. It has that blousy look on top and a nice easy flow to the skirt. I have this dress is another color but the v-neck comes lower. This dress's neck line is higher so I don’t need to wear anything underneath it. It feels feminine without feeling fussy." —AliAtwood
