    Unless otherwise specified, all sizes in this post are listed in women's.

    1. A sweet leopard top with button details and ruffled short sleeves that make it about a thousand times more stylish than a regular tee, even though it's just as easy to toss on.

    2. A romantic puff-sleeve pastel maxi dress fit for a princess trapped in a tower with nothing to do but brush and brush her hair...or a you stuck in your apartment with nothing to do but twirl around and take selfies in this instantly Instagrammable outfit.

    3. A floral flannel you can rock open or buttoned up — it's a fresh, pretty take on a wardrobe staple either way.

    4. A swingy, high-low turtleneck tunic that's basically the definition of effortless chic. It's got a waffle-knit material because hey, if it's good enough for your favorite breakfast food, it's good enough for your new favorite top.

    5. Rich burgundy faux leather leggings sure to make the basic (and at this point, severely worn out) leggings you've spent all of stay-at-home times in very jealous. Finally, some leggings you'll feel 100% great about wearing as real pants.

    6. A Stevie Nicks-esque velvet duster you can just toss over a band tee and jeans for an OOTD straight out of your fashion ~dreams~.

    7. A go-everywhere denim utility jacket that's an absolute no-brainer to throw over every outfit. Also, those pockets look like the perfect size for storing hand sanitizer and ChapStick — you love to see it.

    8. A cozy maxi dress (with POCKETS!) that'll have you covered — literally — for whatever. Just toss it on and go!

    9. Drawstring waist boyfriend jeans by It Australian denim brand One Teaspoon, because one thing I think we've all learned from quarantimes is that we should banish buttons and zippers on even the trendiest garments for good. It's a new comfy era!

    10. A surprisingly chic knit set that's a heck of a lot cuter (and more Insta-worthy) than plain old sweats. Plus, you can break up the top and shorts for tons of outfit combinations.

    11. A super soft floral midi dress so you can achieve T-Swift-esque cottagecore vibes without the effort of, you know, releasing multiple Grammy-worthy albums during quarantine.

    12. Slouchy yet stylish overalls with roomy pockets for storing all the compliments you'll collect.

    13. A fun and super hecking soft ombre lounge set to have you looking like a living, breathing sunset while you chill from dawn till dusk.

    The peach, pink, and yellow sweatshirt and pants set

    14. An oversized open cardigan with rainbow striped sleeves to take every ensemble from blah to cheerful in seconds flat.

    15. A bold one-shoulder sports bra and leggings set unlike anything any of your fellow athleisure enthusiasts will have in their rotation.

    16. A fun and colorful plaid button-down sure to become a wardrobe staple, because IMHO, plaid should basically be considered a neutral (especially in fall and winter). Still, it can look super high-fashion when paired with contrasting prints or edgy jewelry, or knotted over high-waisted bottoms.

    17. A boho chic crochet-detail henley made for pairing with your fave jeans and that's giving me Free People vibes at a fraction of a Free People price.

    18. Tie-dye sweatpants, aka the biggest trend of the past year that will persist through the rest of stay-at-home times and beyond — because cute and cozy is a combo that never goes out of style.

    19. A long-sleeved T-shirt dress that seems basic, but is there anything basic about a flirty asymmetric hem and over 7,500 positive reviews? Didn't think so.

    20. A gingham pullover sweatshirt with such cute colors and adorable contrasting trim, it's basically an outfit all on its own — just add jeans. Plus, it's got a handy pocket you're free to fill with sunshine.

    21. A puff-sleeve sherpa moto jacket that combines several trends in one, all while staying super heckin' cozy.

    22. Cool animal print lounge pants to make even a day spent on the couch feel like you're living on the ~wild~ side.

    23. A sssstylish snake-print open cardigan with cute ruffle trim sure to go down in hiss-tory as the best part of your casual ensemble.

    24. A surprisingly chic oversized hoodie dress that's ready to replace your worn-out college hoodie permanently.

    25. A burnout-effect velvet robe ideal for layering and/or lounging in luxury.

    26. A striped sweatshirt with sleek side slits to add extra interest to an otherwise basic piece. You'd reach for this so often, I think you'd be fully justified in buying one in every color (which, BTW, you can do for under $100).

    27. A simply adorable sweatsuit set perfect for an ~athleisurely~ weekend spent bingeing Bridgerton, making pancakes, and having a solo dance party in your room. Ideal.

    28. A wide-stripe, V-neck cardi with pretty pearly buttons that could easily pass for a hip vintage piece and is basically a top *and* jewelry all rolled into one.

    29. Sparkly jogger pants because sweats, like everything else in life, can only be made better with sequins.

    30. A comfy asymmetric plaid shirtdress (with pockets!!!) so you can ~check~ "easy winter outfit" off your shopping list.

    31. A mint utility jumpsuit sure to have you pastel-ing all your friends that separate tops and bottoms are overrated.

    32. A slouchy-yet-posh oversized turtleneck dress that basically screams, "Why yes, I DID just get back from a day on the slopes. Please bring me a glass of wine."

    33. A swingy and boho-chic dress with pockets, an easy breezy cut, and a print that'll stand out in any crowd. Yeah, it's a triple threat.

    34. A dramatic waterfall cardi to help you make a regal entrance everywhere you go, while still staying comfy and within your budget.

    35. A satin romper that looks luxe, but has an elastic waistband to keep you way comfier than everyone else for dressy occasions. Oooh, and this with a pile of layered gold necklaces?? 😍😍😍

    36. A fierce leopard pocket T-shirt none of the plain tees in your closet could ever hope to compete with.

    37. A raw-hemmed denim tunic shirtdress ready to serve as a jean-ius blank canvas to your fabulous shoe and accessory collection (or just be cute on its own with a pair of sneakers).

    38. A super soft jumpsuit that's trendy, but also so comfy you'll feel like you're getting away with wearing a PJ onesie in public.

    39. And a super posh layered shift dress to make it look like you skillfully styled a dress over a blouse, when all you had to do was pull on one piece. Extra credit for adding patterned tights and/or a colorful belt, though.
