    Promising review: "This dress is like a soft T-shirt, and the colors on the blue-and-white tie-dye were beautiful and vibrant. The sleeves were nice and stretchy and weren’t too tight. It honestly feels as comfy as a nightgown. I can’t wait to wear it more; I tried it on and it was so comfy I left it on to run errands! It’s great with flat sandals, and I just ordered another color because I love it so much. Say hello to my new summer uniform!"Lauren L.

    These are honestly the best tights I've ever owned! I'm a size 16/18 and it can be hard to find tights that are actually comfortable, not a struggle to put on, and don't rip before I've even stepped outside. These ones are a dream come true!!

Definitely department store quality, like something I’d find at Macy’s in the women’s section. It’s a deep-V cut so I’ll be wearing a tank underneath. Super comfortable and can accommodate a larger size within reason. Arms are dolman and wrap-style closure to adjust size. Can’t wait to wear it out!!!" —ezralea

    reviewer wearing the black and white collared sweater with a scallop hem

    Promising review: "I am in love with this top. It is extremely chic and makes life easier when you want to dress preppy. I love that the shirt is attached and you don't have any bulging buttons underneath. The scallop details are awesome and it looks much more expensive than it is. I got a size large and probably could have gotten a little bit bigger because I am busty. I still love it even though it rides up a little because of my bust." —kevinerhard

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and two colors).

    34. An oversized knitted sweater-vest for a preppy outfit piece that'll make you look like a fashionable extra in Gossip Girl. Perfect for strolling through the city with your Dan Humphrey.,

I paired it with a white turtleneck underneath, but the options are limitless here. Was surprised at the quality of this’s very soft and thick. Which wasn’t what I expected at all. My only real complaint is the price of the item. However, this item is very trendy, so I understand. Would definitely, and might, buy again very soon!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S–L and 19 colors).

    Reviewer is facing away from the camera, showing off the beige Panama hat on top of their long, blonde hair

    Promising review: "Love this hat! At first, I was worried it might be heavy in weight because of its wool-like texture, but it was actually lightweight! This hat will go with any outfit. You’ll have to fix the shape of it after taking it out of the box though, it was a bit crushed from delivery but no biggie. For the price and the quality, I was impressed. I recommend this must-have fashionable piece!" —Sapphire Shiohwan

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in 34 colors).

Anyway, y'all, BUY THIS SWEATER!" —Kristen Saunders

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 13 colors).

    37. And a puff-sleeve blouse, because it'll dress up any simple bottoms. This with some silver accessories and black heels? Prepare to have your date drooling!


    Promising review: "I needed something cute but classy and this top worked perfectly! This top is fitted but has great stretch, it is somewhat short...but not a crop at all, it will probably hit the tops of your pants pockets. The body of the top is made with a soft, lightweight, nonitchy knit-textured type of material. The sleeves worked out better than expected, the sleeve material is soft and was NOT itchy (like I expected it to be)." —Karmen
