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

    1. A chic belted dress appropriate for so many occasions, from work to future parties, it'll pretty much save you from saying "I have nothing to wear" ever again.

    2. A scoop-neck striped tee one could argue is just as essential as the plain white variety. This baby would be Parisian chic with just a pair of jeans, but would also be ~très magnifique~ as part of a mixed print situation with leopard or florals.

    3. A sleek V-neck T-shirt dress, which is so simple, but you can make it work for pretty much any season or vibe with different accessories and layers.

    4. A pretty leopard print circle skirt with color blocked details, because leopard is basically a neutral and twirl-worthy flared skirts will be wardrobe must-haves forever. This splurge-worthy find will instantly make something as simple as a black tank look high fashion.

    5. Stretchy, button- and zipper-free bootcut pants that are clearly a timeless work wardrobe staple, but are so comfy you'll want to wear them outside of the office too.

    6. A dramatic waterfall cardi to help you make a regal entrance everywhere you go, whether you toss it over jeans, dress pants, or even belt it over a dress.

    7. A polished and practical pencil skirt that actually has stretch, so you won't be desperate to get out of it ~write~ away when you get home.

    8. An oversized cardigan with classic cable-knit details sure to become your new close-knit BFF. Listen, if it looks like something your grandpa would wear (in a good way) that's good indicator its style stands the test of time.

    9. A cap-sleeve faux-wrap dress for a warm-weather take on the iconic fashion silhouette.

    10. An everyday utility jacket with plenty of pockets, because if pockets EVER go out of style I think clothes should just be cancelled.

    11. A vintage-y 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.

    12. A super posh belted vest here to prove simple black and white are anything but boring. Add a red lip and I'll seriously be swooning.

    13. A soft, three-quarter-sleeve blazer that's as essential as its more structured cousins, but way comfier.

    14. An easy breezy wide-leg jumpsuit ready to serve as a blank canvas for a statement necklace or pair of shoes, or just be tossed on with flip-flops for a warm day walk in springs and summers to come.

    15. A strappy midi dress with pockets that's pretty much the textbook definition of the perfect sundress and would make a stylish summer uniform for years to come.

    16. A slouchy jean jacket that is truly an all-time wardrobe staple, made even better by the fact that you can easily customize it with fun pins and patches (but it will look just as great as is).

    17. A leopard-print button-down, because leopard is not a trend — it's a neutral, a staple, and a way of life — and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

    18. A classy tie-neck blouse that feels like the kind of thing Blair Waldorf would have in her closet instead of a plain white tee.

    19. A posh collarless coat I could honestly see fitting right in on a starlet in a classic movie, but also on your commute for falls and winters to come.

    20. A professional-looking tweed shift dress reminiscent of pieces by a fancy and timeless designer that rhymes with Schmanel — for a teeny tiny fraction of the price.

    21. A classic bandage dress that'll work for pretty much everything on your social calendar for the rest of time (when we go back to having social calendars, that is) and is the perfect ~first aid~ for your intense craving for fancy designer dresses.

    22. A sweet and casual LBD, because little black dresses can work just as well for chill outdoor weekend brunches as they can for cocktail parties.

    23. A spring-ready stretch linen-blend shift dress with pockets that you'll love just as much on its own as with a belt and jewelry. Yeah, it's that effortlessly chic.

    24. A soft and easy T-shirt dress you can wear to work from home all day, then pair with some cool sandals for a chill spring outing. With different accessories, this dress can suit pretty much any mood, style, season, era...you get the point.

    25. A striped, Peter Pan-collar top that screams "French chic" and will still leave you with plenty of funds left for a fancy bottle of champagne to go with it. Just don't spill!

    26. A retro-chic plaid midi skirt (with *pockets*) that's made to order, for anyone who is so over fast fashion. You can style this to fit any vibe, from vintage to grunge to cottagecore.

    27. A princess-worthy midi skirt with over 2,000 positive reviews that'll become a wardrobe staple no matter your style. Preppy? Glam? Minimal? Like Phineas and Ferb, this skirt is gonna do it all.

    28. A simple but unbelievably versatile long-sleeved T-shirt dress that seems basic, but is there anything basic about over 7,000 positive reviews? Didn't think so.

    29. A striped sweatshirt with sleek side slits to add extra interest to an otherwise basic piece. You'll 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).

    30. A romantic tulle skirt here to help you live out your Carrie Bradshaw fantasies 20 years later — just add heels, a cami, and a bus ad with your face on it.
