    Just 32 Amazing Things To Add To Your Wardrobe In 2020

    May 2020 be your most stylish year yet.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An elegantly embroidered fit-and-flare dress you're sure to get sew many compliments on.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dress looks like it came from a high-end boutique. The fabric, stitching, and cut are all way above this dress's price point. For reference, I'm 5'6" and 127 lbs and curvy with a 35 1/2" bust measurement. The medium fits perfectly. The bust measurement is the most critical thing to get right when deciding which size to purchase. The dress is forgiving at the waist and hip. If you have a 36" bust measurement, the size 6 will be too snug. The way the dress hangs and the quality of the workmanship and fabric truly make you look like you spent several hundred dollars on it." β€”MoxieLoxie

    Get it from Amazon for $59.98 (available in sizes S-XXL).

    2. A soft tee with a faux suede pocket that you should definitely colorblock off some time in your sartorial schedule to rock.

    Taylor Miller/BuzzFeed, amazon.com

    I wore this for a shoot we did at BuzzFeed, and the material feels thick and smooth. No one will guess it cost $10! Check out more ways to style it (as demonstrated by BuzzFeeders) here.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in eight colors, with short or long sleeves or a in tank top style).

    3. Faux-patent platform oxfords that look way more expensive than they are. They're here to prove once and for all that it's not about the price tag, as long as you've got ~sole~.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these shoes!!! I don't typically write long reviews, but I really love that I bought these. I bought them a week before a trip to Iceland and France with no time to break them in. They were great! It was rainy in Iceland and I wore these everywhere β€” they still look great and the platform kept me elevated enough that I never worried about puddles or anything getting my feet wet. I wore those on all the little sightseeing stops waking through dirt and lava fields. For France they were great as well. Comfy like a sneaker, but better looking so you don't feel like a tourist inappropriately wearing tennis shoes with a dress or fancier outfit. They elevated casual outfits β€” like navy capris and a white tee β€” to be a little more sophisticated-looking, which came out great in photos. I can wear these with no-show socks and without socks. With no-show socks they are roomy enough that I had no rub. I also had a stranger or two compliment me on my cool shoes. Overall, super awesome and a great value." β€”Justina Pfister

    Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes 5-10 and in four colors).

    4. A wide-striped cardi you'll want to pas-tell all your friends about.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in nine color combinations).

    5. A sexy plaid sheath that might have better social skills than I do, tbh β€” it can go from a meeting to a bar with perfect ease.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This dress is great for fall and winter, both because of the pattern and material. The material isn't terribly thick, but does insulate pretty well. I love that you can wear it with or without leggings, and with boots or pumps. I always get compliments when I wear this dress to work." β€”Amanda

    Get it from Amazon for $16.49+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 13 prints).

    6. A tough flannel moto jacket you'll use to top off pretty much every look until summer 2020 hits.

    Summer 2020, which will be know as what??? We've already had hot girl summer/White Claw summer, where could we possibly go from here???

    Get it from Torrid for $62.23 (originally $88.90, available in sizes 00X-6X).

    Promising review: "I want to order this is ALL THE COLORS. I'm 5'2" and weigh about 190lbs and I ordered a medium. It's so comfy and soft, and the perfect length. I love how the hem is asymmetric!!!" β€”Emily

    8. A luxe velvet hoodie, because your beat-up old cotton hoodies are so 2019.

    Amazon

    It's got a cool zipper detail on the sides!

    Promising review: "Absolutely gorgeous! I ordered a lot of velvet items for Christmas presents. Some were from Victoria's Secret, and were costly. This hoodie is top quality. It's by far my favorite velvet purchase to date. The fabric is thick and plush. It's far nicer than I expected." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in three colors).

    9. 18-karat, gold-plated huggie hoop earrings with lightning bolt charms to represent your ~electric~ sense of style β€” or your Harry Potter obsession. Or both.

    Claire's

    Get them from Claire's for $16.99.

    10. An amazingly affordable oversized teddy bear coat so you can rock the outerwear trend that everyone and their mother seem to be wearing without breaking the bank.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "OBSESSED!!! Exactly like a coat from Urban Outfitters, except at a fraction of the cost. It's super comfy and warm! Love love love it! It feels expensive and is super cute." β€”Vanessa

    13. A high-neck lace bralette for anyone looking to up their layering game in the cutest (and least bulky) of ways.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this bralette! I wear it under tank tops or low-cut shirts to give them more color or coverage. It has adjustable straps so I can wear it as high or low as I want. I have this in turquoise and the melon color, and both are beautiful and bright. For reference, I'm 5'5" and 175 pounds and I wear a bra size 36D. I bought an XL." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $7.04+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 19 colors).

    14. A posh polka dot blazer that proves you *can* mix business and pleasure.

    15. Glam acrylic and rhinestone statement earrings, because 2019 may be over, but I refuse to let its big earring trend end.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are original-looking and stylish. I get compliments every time I wear them. If you were to make an equation of cost versus compliments, these earrings are a ridiculously good bargain. In other words, lots of compliments, very little cost. Whoever designed them, BRAVO." β€”Mitzi in Maryland

    Get them from Amazon for $8.69+ (available in five colors).

    16. A neutral and subtly geek-chic crossbody purse and matching wallet you can rock on June 5, 2020 (aka the release date of Wonder Woman 1984 that has been bolded on my calendar for months) but also to non-nerd events the rest of the year.

    @loungefly / Via instagram.com

    Get the purse for $72 and the wallet for $32.08, both from Amazon.

    17. A polka dot T-shirt dress with pockets that you may never want to take off, especially since it'll be cute with bare legs when it's warm or with tights and booties for the rest of winter. Prepare to spend all of 2020 in this dress.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this dress. I ordered the large because I’m large in the breast area and I was worried it would be too tight, but I honestly could have gotten away with the medium, so I would say this dress is pretty true to size. The overall dress is great quality, soft, and comfortable, the pockets aren't skimpy or small, and the dress isn't see-through. I want one in every color." β€”Tasia B

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in three colors).

    18. The perfect pair of basic ballet flats β€” you know, the ones you've been searching for your whole life.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These are the best flats I've ever worn!!! I have very hard-to-fit feet β€” I wear a 6.5/7 and have boxy toes and a very tall instep. I took a chance on these and I'm SO glad I did! I'll be buying as many other colors as they have available in my size. They don’t rub or pinch like most flats do. I put them on and they were immediately my favorite pair of shoes. I'll be wearing them as often as I can!" β€”Emily Perry

    Get them from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes 5-12 and in 22 colors and prints).

    19. Standout skinny jeans with a glam velvet stripe detail that makes them anything but basic.

    Loft

    Get them from Loft for $89.50 (available in sizes 24-32 regular and 24-34 petite).

    20. An OMG-worthy blouse printed with animal friends that'll steal the scene (and hearts) wherever you wear it.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love having something unexpected in my work outfits, and this shirt was a great addition to my wardrobe. It's short in front and longer in the back, and it's easy to dress it up or down. I wore it with gray dress pants and a black cardigan to work one day, then changed into jeans after work. The girls in my office loved it! The raccoon print is adorable. They're small so people might not notice the raccoons at first, but once they do, prepare for smiles. It's also very lightweight, so I wore a camisole under it since it's still a bit chilly in Michigan. Overall, really happy to have another fun blouse to wear to work." β€”Christina Wiese

    Get it from Amazon for $26.20 (available in sizes XS-XL and in six prints).

    21. Sequined high-top Converse that 2009 you would have busted your butt to save up enough allowance for. Well, it's a new decade and adult you is finally ready to splurge on them.

    Asos

    Get them from Asos for $70 (available in sizes 5-10).

    22. An amazingly affordable faux leather mini you're definitely gonna want a piece of.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "LOVE IT! It's so cute, fits perfectly, and has a stretchy top! It looks like real leather. I have a 27/28 waist and I got the medium. There's enough stretch in the waistband to give you room for bloating and/or to wear it lower on your waist." β€”AaaahChoos

    Get it from Amazon for $14.49+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in seven colors).

    23. A sleek running jacket with a leopard print detail so cool, it may actually make you look forward to working out. Okay, almost.

    Athleta

    Get it from Athleta for $158 (available in sizes XXS-L).

    24. A trendy bucket bag that's just as fabulous as a designer option. Spending major $$$ on a fancy bag? Bucket.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I absolutely love my bag. It’s better than designer bags I've owned. This bag is a quality material and the color is beautiful. The magnet closure is strong. My water bottle fits inside nicely without hanging out, and the bag still closes. Bucket bags are my preferred style of bag because my wallet, glasses, and water bottle fit nicely inside with easy access. I love that it’s not floppy and that it stands when I have to set it down." β€”Amy Torman

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99 (available in three colors).

    25. A peacock-printed midi skirt in case you want to look totally ~flock~ 'n' roll.

    One of my coworkers has this in red and I can confirm that it looks just as Insta-worthy IRL!

    Promising review: "So. Dang. Cute!!! I love this loose, flowy dress for any occasion. It fits true to size and the color is great! If you’re looking for a form-fitting dress, this is NOT it. It’s flowy and causal while still flattering!" β€”Robin R

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 10 colors and prints).

    27. A sexy sheer mesh top in a cool mix of floral prints sure to deliver a whole bouquet of compliments.
