    When I started seeing this new "it bag" all over Instagram, I knew I had to have it. What shocked me was the fact that it's less than $100! The quality is amazing — the vegan leather is sturdy, it has a nice faux-suede lining, and the magnetic closure actually stays closed. The adorable "scrunchie" design is such a great way to jazz up an outfit. Plus, it's a great size for the necessities like my phone, wallet, keys, mask, and lip gloss. I definitely plan on buying more colors!

As for the sizing, I am a 4 or 6 depending on the pair, and I ordered a 9 in these, and they are perfect! I think there’s confusion because the tag says 9/28R which translates to a women’s to me that means they fit true to size!! My husband loves these as much as I do. These pants are 🔥🔥🔥🔥" —Ali Sudderth

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in sizes 1–15 and XL–3X and in 18 colors and styles).

    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!! I have been wearing dresses and skirts way more often this winter because I finally have tights I can feel comfy and confident in.

    Promising review: "I love this shirt for the cooler months ahead! It's lightweight, flowy, and super cozy! I would order a size down if you're wanting it to fit like a shirt.

    24. A pair of combat boots you'll probably be wearing everyday for the rest of the year. They go with everything, from dresses to skinny jeans, and are available in black or brown.,

    Some reviewers say this runs a tad big! You may want to size down if you prefer it to be more fitted.

    Promising review: "This dress is really great quality! Some sweaters are itchy but this one is very soft. I am normally a size medium or large. This runs a little big. If you don't want it to be form-fitting then order your true size. If you want it tight, size down. I love it though!" —R. Aponte

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes S–XL and in 10 styles).

    Promising review: "This is a great basic for the price...the material is much softer and nicer than I expected. I am normally a small and only sometimes a medium, but I want this as a layering piece do I went for small and it is just right. The cream is a pure cream. I would definitely recommend." —ImpossibleGirl

    28. A knee-length open cardigan so cozy you will feel like you're being hugged every time you wear it (which is likely to be every single day). Throw it on over jeans and a tank and your look is automatically elevated.


    Promising review: "I received this sweater yesterday and was pleasantly surprised at the quality for the price. I have a large collection of sweater coats, most of them far more costly or part cashmere. This sweater is on the thicker side and works for fall. I wore all day and not a wrinkle! Time will tell how long it lasts but I will definitely be purchasing more." —Love shopping

    Get it from Amazon for $34.35 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in six colors).

    29. An adorable pair of pumpkin earrings for adding a festive touch to your daily attire. Just pop these on with whatever you're wearing and you'll feel like a Halloween Queen.


    Get them from Baublebar for $48.

    30. A stylish wrap sweater to make you feel sassy and fashionable without sacrificing one bit of comfiness.


    Promising review: "This top is absolutely gorgeous. I purchased in black. It’s as pictured on the model but even better in person! 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

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 11 colors).

    31. A sleeveless wide-leg jumpsuit because it'll feel like you're wearing pajamas all day, but with some cute shoes and accessories you'll look totally on-point. And on cooler days, you can easily throw a denim jacket or blazer on over it.,

    Some reviewer's have noted that this jumpsuit may pill, but nothing that a handy dandy sweater shaver can't fix!

    Promising review: "Haven’t felt attractive in a piece of clothing since somewhere around the end of second trimester over a year ago! This is so cute and I get compliments every time I wear it. It has MASSIVE pockets (yes!!), and the drawstring waist helps it hang just right. The only reason I don’t own it in every color already is that the leg fabric is pilling REALLY badly. I’m worried it will wear out soon, but it is worth every penny in price per wear. I’ve worn it all summer." —Leslie Reads a Lot

    Get it from Amazon for $34.90 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in five colors).

    32. An ultra-cozy faux-shearling pullover with pockets and a lapel collar so you can feel like you're wrapped up in a blanket on chilly days while still looking cute, of course.,

    Promising review: "Exactly what I wanted. It’s so soft and comfy. Keeps you warm and is perfect for the New England fall and early winter. I was nervous it might look too basic for work but it’s perfect. There is plenty of room and it’s not tight at all. I already bought another color because I don’t want to take it off it’s so comfortable. Only downside is I wish the pockets were a bit bigger, my phone falls right out unless I wedge it in the seam." —AC

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in sizes S–XL and 27 colors).

    33. A velvet off-the-shoulder top and matching joggers for people who are obsessed with anything velvet (it me). This cute and comfy two-piece set takes all the work out of figuring out what to wear in the morning.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS! I am buying all colors! It is so soft. Fits perfectly! Had a lady come up to me today and get the information on it so that she can order it. Beautiful, vibrant color!" —BeachDays

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 10 colors).

    34. A fuzzy popcorn sweater that'll make you want to run and find some changing leaves so you can have a full autumn photoshoot in it.,

    Promising review: "This is my favorite new sweater! The quality is amazing! It's super soft and the color is a pretty taupe that goes well with everything. It's definitely oversized, so order your normal size. I love the detail on the sleeves and the length is great. I'm tempted to buy the other colors now!" —Laura Chaffee

    Promising review: "The pictures are spot on. Very SEXY! My husband was really WOWWWWED!! I wore it out on a date night with my hubby and got so many compliments." —sierra

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in sizes XS–XL and 16 designs).

    38. A front-tie waffle-knit tunic that'll pair great with your fave distressed jeans and booties.,

    Promising review: "This sweater is everything I’d hoped it would be! It’s fairly lightweight, but still warm enough for a chilly autumn day. I love that the back is long enough to cover your butt if you want to wear leggings instead of jeans or slacks. Most of all, it’s fashionable! I wore mine with skinny jeans, ankle booties and an infinity scarf. I will definitely be ordering additional colors!" —Jasmin J. Black

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 37 colors).

    39. A faux-layered sweater for a very Sabrina Spellman–esque look — and what could be better suited for fall than that? Imagine wearing this with some platform loafers. 😍

    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 $15.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and four colors).

    40. A Panama hat available in tons of color options — it'll be the ultimate finishing touch to your apple picking attire.

    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 $18.99 (available in 34 colors). 

    41. Or a slouchy beanie if your style is a bit more casual. This will keep your head warm and give your outfit more of a grunge vibe.

    reviewer wearing the beanie in dark gray

    Promising review: "Another grand slam slouchy! Machine washable and dryable. Looks good on everyone, from baldies to shaved heads to full-on Stevie Nicks types. The cable knitting is the real deal. However, this hat doesn't make you sweat indoors. How they do this, I am not sure, cause it is cotton and light, but it keeps me warm, outside in winter weather — including snow — yet doesn't put me into a coma when worn in a coffee house or movie theater. Go figure. Then go buy this hat." —Darsen

    Get it from Amazon for $7.95 (available in three colors).

    42. An oversized knitted sweater vest for a preppy outfit piece that'll make you look like a fashionable extra in the Gossip Girl reboot.,

    Promising review: "Love this! Well worth the price! I ordered a medium so that it wouldn’t be too oversized and look awkward. And it fits perfect!! 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 13 colors).

    43. And a cable-knit two-piece set perfect for those cozy nights at home, when you want to feel cute and "put together" even though your only plans are rewatching Disney Channel Halloween movies and eating a caramel apple.,
