    Promising review: "I love this shirt! It is so comfortable and cute. The color is spot on from the pictures. I can dress business casual to work, so I wore it and got tons of compliments. I would say the fabric is on the thinner side, which can be layered with a cute jacket or a tank underneath for warmth if needed. Overall exactly as pictured and happy with this purchase." —LaneyE

    Promising review: "Super comfortable. They look great with jeans or dresses. They're not as wide or chunky looking as regular docs. I am a bartender and my feet were hurting after every shift. Not anymore. These are great if you're on your feet for long periods of time. No foot pain at all. Highly recommend these!" —Stacey

It fits closely, but not tightly, around the bust, and flows loosely from there skimming over everything else. It looks cute with lots of different types of shoes, meaning it can stretch seasons for me!" —Genevieve

I am 5'7, 225 pds and I'm busty. I fits me nicely. I might order another one in a medium for a more fitted look. You can't go wrong with this dress!" —KP

    Free People

    Promising review: "Very cute and complimenting! True to size, I got the white but I'll probably get a few more colors. Soft and comfy too. The high neck isn't bad either, turtlenecks can sometimes make me feel like I'm choking, but this shirt doesn't." —Britannia

I must say, I've seem women from all different sizes rock this skirt from casual to glam and I'm glad I purchased it. It got here within two days (thanks Amazon Prime) and even came in an already prepped return package just in case I had to return, how considerate. A must for any wardrobe.

My husband has worn Carhartt t-shirts for years so I decided to try the women's line of shirts. Perfect in every way. Fit is true to size, and I already know they wash and wear for years without fading or changing shape. I will be buying several more." —dk46

    23. A long-sleeve v-neck dress because what's more timeless than a LBD?

    26. Or a leather belt with a round buckle, because you don't waist any time being unfashionable.,

    Promising review: "This belt is definitely the real deal at an affordable price. I've worn it six days a week for the past five month and its as good as the day I first purchased it. It makes for a great gift since the packaging is so cute. Totally worth the purchase." —Shaneeza

    Get it from Amazon for $14.59 (available in four waist sizes and nine colors).

    27. A pair (or five) of blue jeans, because if there's one thing you always wish wasn't in the hamper, it's a pair of these bad bois.

    Promising review: "These are absolutely amazing! The reviews were great, but I was still skeptical because I have a very hard time finding jeans that fit well and are comfortable. These are amazing! I carry the majority of my extra weight in my stomach and despise any type of pants that cause muffin top, so I tend to order bigger rather than smaller to avoid that. The result is usually pants that won’t stay up and I am constantly pulling them up all day. These are perfect! They are pull on, so no buttons or zippers. And they somehow stay up, yet are not too tight in the waist. No muffin top, and no falling down. The legs are snug but very comfy. And they are flattering. A miracle! I am going back to buy the darker color right now!" —MartinZ

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes 2–20 M/L/S and three styles).

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S–3X and 16 colors).

    29. A medium-weight cardigan to elevate your look from casual to casual-chic. It's available in so many colors you're bound to find a few to match your closet aesthetic.

    Promising review: "I am very happy with this cardigan! I just wanted to have an everyday cardigan for work since my office is very cold. This is more than what I expected, the fabric is very soft, I cant take my hands off, and drapes nicely, especially the neckline!" —SY Jeong

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 24 colors).

    30. A fitted moto jacket that'll basically transform your clothes into a completed outfit.


    Promising review: "I love my new jacket. I can wear it with a dress, shorts or casual with jeans. I bought it to wear to my office Christmas party with a dress and received a lot of compliments. I believe it will be timeless, I will be able to get a lot of years from it." —patisserie

    Get it from Nordstrom for $98 (available in sizes XS–XXL and three colors).

    31. A pair of knee-high leather boots you'll reach for every time you're on your way out the door.


    Promising review: "For years I've been looking for tall, wide calf boots and I've finally found them! I can comfortably tuck my jeans inside, and the back zipper makes them easy to put on. On top of that, they're so comfortable. No breaking in required!" —LauraPChi

    Get a pair from Nordstrom for $149.90 (available in sizes 4–13, and two colors).

    32. Or a pair of Chelsea ankle booties that'll follow you into every season. Seriously they'll be your sole-mates.

    Promising review: "After seven months of almost daily wear, still love these booties. So much so that I'm ordering another pair for when they finally fall to pieces. They're a little worn out now which is to be expected, but the color is fantastic and they're still holding up well. They survived a cold (snowless) Texas winter, too." —Karol

    Get a pair from Amazon for $29.49 (available in sizes 5–11 and four colors).

    33. A mock neck sweater, because a full turtleneck can be a little much sometimes. Opt for something a bit looser but with the same vibe.


    Promising review: "Impressive sweater! I bought this liking the price and the general look, but not expecting much for quality. I have been very pleasantly surprised at how well cut it is, the thick durability of the weave, and how there was NO pilling after one wash. It isn't scratchy like wool. Great look!" —mercuricfreesia

    Get it from Nordstrom for $68 (available in sizes 2–12 and three colors).

    34. A pair of adorable and affordable mittens that'll stretch to fit most hand sizes. Also these are plush-filled, meaning you'll basically never want to take them off.


    Promising review: "These are the softest things I have ever touched. The inside is like a cloud. I just bought a second pair because I want to wear them when I go to sleep. They fit really nice. They are rolled up on the end, but if you want a longer fit you can roll them out. Really nice and well made." —Coppelia

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in ten colors).

    35. A snap-down-the-front faux suede mini skirt to per-suede you to wear more cute outfits in 2019.

    Promising review: "This skirt is gorgeous! I really wanted this style of skirt, but couldn't find one at a decent price point. I was skeptical about this one because it was so affordable, but I am SO HAPPY with my purchase. I'll probably buy it in more colors. I got it in "yellow" (it's tan, just like the photo) and it's amazing. The material is a great weight, super soft, and the waist has good stretch. It's really flattering, too. I'm a size ten, and the large fits perfectly. I can't wait to wear this!" —melissastewart

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and five colors).

    36. Or a black and classic denim skirt because there are like 20 different outfits you can make with this one piece alone!

    37. A pair of reversible Spanx tights you'll thank yourself later for buying now. You're def going to want multiple pairs of them throughout your life.


    Promising review: "LOVE THESE TIGHTS! I am a full figure woman. This is the third time I have purchased these tights. They are comfortable, fit well, and I don't break a sweat putting them on. Although they are a bit more pricy, they last a long time with a lot if wear. They can be dressy or casual. PLUS! I love the fact that it's like having two pair because one side is gray and the other is black!"—livelikeno2morrow

    Get a pair from Amazon for $33.12 (available in sizes A–G and ten colors).

    38. An A-line dress with a sheer illusion neckline so you have more pieces in your closet that are as colorful as your personality.

    Promising review: "I love this dress! Super flattering no matter what your body type is (I'm plus size and feel so comfortable in it)! Every time I wear it out I get compliments. Looks great on its own or dress it up! Just so cute. Ordering in all of the colors!" —Logan

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS–3X and 46 colors).

    39. And finally, a sports bra constructed with a built in bra and wide shoulder straps so it'll actually support your boobs. You'll be happy in the long run that you got a pair!


    Promising review: "I could not be happier with these! I have larger breasts (34D-34DD) and had stopped working out because it hurt my breasts too much. I really wanted to pick up a workout routine again, but I had to wear a padded, underwire bra under my sports bra. As you can imagine, that was not comfortable. There was lots of pressure on my ribs and I got so overheated during every workout, even indoors. So I started to try to find something that would be supportive, but not painful and that wouldn't cost a fortune. I NEVER thought I'd get THIS lucky! These are SO supportive for cardio, weight training, yoga, pilates, everything! I can lean forward, backward, sideways, jump, stretch, etc...and everything STAYS IN PLACE! They're so comfortable and affordable! These are perfect! I will be getting more, and would recommend them to anyone with my struggle. Great product!" —Amazon Customer
