    1. A glamorous, head-turning, lace-up tulle top you definitely shouldn't give the ~cold shoulder~. I'm especially swooning over the thought of pairing it with jeans for a cool contrast.

    2. A super cute cocktail-print cutie that'll pretty much turn every hour you wear it into happy hour. And yeah, it's okay to get a little ~drunk~ on all the compliments you'll score.

    3. A ruffled blouse with Victorian vibes sure to score you a Bridger-ton* of compliments.

    4. An effortlessly cool shirt jacket (aka a shacket), which (as the name suggests) can be styled like a shirt or a jacket and basically looks like it was plucked straight from the feed of your favorite influencer.

    5. A charming puff ball detail sweater you'll be able to pom-pompously boast was an absolute steal.

    6. A pretty button-down printed with woodland friends like bunnies, foxes, and bears that you can fo-rest assured will stand out on your next video call.

    7. An intricately detailed crochet top so gorgeous, you can't say anything to its ~lace~.

    8. A luxe velvet T-shirt you can rock in place of any of your other basic tees for an instant outfit upgrade. Look at you, living the George Costanza dream of draping yourself in velvet.

    9. A quilted cropped pullover that's not a regular sweatshirt, it's a luxe sweatshirt.

    10. A boho chic crochet-detail henley giving me Free People vibes at a fraction of a Free People price.

    11. An adorable star sweater that could pass for a certain hip label that rhymes with "Mildsox," but is actually under $30.

    12. A sultry snake-print, tie-neck blouse sure to go down in hisssstory as a key factor in all your best OOTDs.

    13. A flirty tie-waist, wide-neck sweater that's the perfect combination of casual and dressy for these "I wanna look posh for this video chat but also I've grown accustomed to wearing nothing but pajamas" times we're living in.

    14. A David Rose-worthy cropped sweater whose arms seem to have been replaced by some fashionable feline friends who really enjoy being the center of attention (other than you, of course).

    15. A puff sleeve faux leather button-down, aka a must-have wardrobe staple made approximately a billion times cooler by an edgy material that could easily pass for the real deal.

    16. A regal baroque-print blouse to have you feeling like royalty even if you're, well, baroque.

    17. A preppy and classically chic striped turtleneck that's not too bulky, so you can rock the high-neck trend without totally overheating (or overpaying).

    18. A glam, sheer-sleeve, embellished blouse sure to have you believing in pearl power.

    19. A pleated metallic tank that'll easily dress up jeans, especially if you layer it under a blazer and pair with your favorite necklace.

    20. A slightly cropped plaid sweater for an everyday winter staple that's equal parts cozy and trendy (and looks about double the price).

    21. A long-sleeve floral bow blouse to have you looking Lily van der Woodsen/Rhodes/Bass/Humphrey (whatever she's calling herself these days)-level chic.

    22. A cool cropped jacket that can be worn as a top for anyone who was beyond inspired by the colorful monochrome looks at the inauguration (same), but doesn't have any designers on speed dial to make them a custom one (also same).

    23. A distressed open-shoulder sweater reminiscent of something you might see from a high-end denim brand. Sure, your grandma might not understand why things that come with rips are so expensive, but you can tell her this one wasn't and it's ~fashion~, okay?

    24. A bold patterned crew neck sweater which — no offense to all the cable knits in your closet — is just a heck of a lot cooler than any sweater you already own, and comes in trendy prints that wouldn't look out of place in an upscale boutique.

    25. A richly-hued paisley blouse that's unlike anything in your wardrobe (or anything in any of your friends' wardrobes, for that matter).

    26. A balloon-sleeve faux leather blouse sure to score you so many compliments, you'll feel like you're ~floating~.

    27. A lace cap sleeve collared cutie that's both professional and pretty at the same dang time.

    28. A sleeveless, ribbed mock-neck sweater for a super versatile basic that screams "fashion" a bit more loudly than your typical layering top.

    29. And a knit crop top inspired by old-school classic Chanel looks, but clearly not by Chanel prices.
