    1. A twirl-worthy midi skirt with pockets that's sure to become a new wardrobe staple. I mean, is there a single top in your wardrobe you couldn't wear with one of these?

    2. A comfy leopard T-shirt dress that'll be fashion purrr-fection day or night.

    3. An embroidered tunic dress you can rock to oh-sew many places.

    4. A ribbed turtleneck dress that'd look just as cool with heels as it would with sneakers.

    5. A ruffled off-the-shoulder bodysuit to slip on whenever you want to tuck in your top without all the lumpy extra fabric.

    6. A flirty maxi dress that is exactly what you need for all the weddings you have coming up, but also for those days when you want to just throw on a dress and sandals and feel like a queen at brunch.

    7. A faux-snakeskin biker jacket you can toss over everything from an LBD to jeans for a look so fabulous, it'll leave passersby (parsel)tounge-tied.

    8. Stretchy, pull-on (I'm talking no buttons or zippers, people) bootcut pants comfy enough to wear even when you're off the clock.

    9. A striped, belted, one-shoulder wonder that's not a regular sundress, it's a high-fashion sundress.

    10. A soft swing dress with 3/4 sleeves that I bet you'll be able to wear to more than 3/4 of your upcoming plans. It's no wonder it has over 1,000 positive reviews!!!

    11. A fun and flowy floral romper you could totally take to the next level with a statement necklace.

    12. A fabulous animal print blouse that'll be ~wildly~ chic whether you tuck it into a skirt or jeans.

    13. A tropical print halter top that looks hot day or night, so you shouldn't leaf it behind on your summer vacay.

    14. A knotted and embroidered cropped tee just begging to be paired with anything high-waisted, be it shorts or a skirt.

    15. Drapey dress shorts for those days when you want to look chic, but are seriously not in the mood for a dress.

    16. A sweet scallop-trim dress that's equally appropriate for business or pleasure.

    17. A pretty skirt that's super polished, but not so much that it would look out of place with your favorite tee.

    18. A versatile polka dot midi skirt you may not take off all spring and summer long. And in the fall and winter? Yeah, it still works with tights, booties, and a pleather jacket.

    19. Dramatic jeans that don't deserve to just be relegated to casual days — they've got more than enough personality to be the life of any party.

    20. A breezy ruffled dress so great for any occasion, it's actually hard to think of places you couldn't wear it.

    21. A gorgeous wrap maxi that can be worn as a dress or a duster, but it's sure to bring the drama either way.

    22. A sultry, silky midi skirt you can ~slip~ into whenever you want to feel effortlessly chic, no matter where you're going.

    23. A Calvin Klein zip-front top, which can look professional or ~sexy~ depending on how low you adjust the zipper.

    24. An effortlessly chic cropped jumpsuit you can wear over and over with different cool shoes, jewelry, and jackets each time.

    25. A double-breasted pinstripe blazer that could mean business, but doesn't have to. I mean, come on — this baby paired with ripped boyfriend jeans? *Kisses fingers like a chef*

    26. And a sequined shift that to most people screams "party," but to incredibly extra people like myself says, "Pair me with combat boots and wear me during the day."
