    2. A sassy high-waisted pleated skirt for any time you feel like being *seen* — no matter what top and shoes you pair it with, you're gonna want to stop playing dress-up and leave the house every time you put this on.,

    Promising review: "The skirt is as beautiful as I imagined it would be; it's exactly as pictured. It's very comfortable, and due to the elastic waistband, it's very forgiving as far as fit. It's perfect for work or a casual day out." —Elayne

    Promising review: "This dress is just the right amount of dramatic. It hits the waist perfectly, showing just a little peek of skin. It is true to size. I am headed to Jamaica and this dress earned a spot in my suitcase." —Dawn P.

    Get it from Eloquii for $79.99 (originally $149.95; available in sizes 14–28).

    4. A pair of round sunnies to add the perfect finishing touch to all your 'fits (the fact that they'll also block the sun from your eyes is just a bonus). Every time you wear these, you'll be radiating cool-girl vibes.,

    Promising review: "It’s pretty hard for me to find round glasses that fit my larger face, but these were perfect! I think these would work really well with smaller faces, too. They're a great pair of everyday glasses. The case is super sturdy and zips as well. It comes with a cloth to clean the lens. A lot of more expensive brands have flimsy cases. The polarization is great because it doesn’t distort color and reduces glare, making it easier on your eyes, but iPhones also have this, so together, it’ll make your screen look pretty weird. Besides that, amazing glasses." —Ange

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99 (available in five colors).

    5. Or some tortoiseshell sunglasses if you prefer a more square-shaped look. These frames are plastic, so they won't get stuck in your hair and they're so cute, you'll probably want to keep them on indoors because they "complete the lewk."

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these glasses!!! They aren't so big that they are overpowering and they work on every head shape. I love them because they never get stuck in my hair and the metal earpieces fit perfectly and comfortably around my ears. Also, they actually do a great job blocking out the sun, compared to most stylish sunglasses. These are the perfect glasses to make every outfit look amazing, keep in the car, or wear every day! Definitely my favorite sunglasses!" —Sam S.

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99 (available in 10 colors/prints).

    6. A tropical lace bralette and thong set that's so stunning, you'll want to wear it all the time just to show off for yourself when you walk past the mirror. The detailed bralette can also be worn as a top — it'll look incredible paired with some chic high-waisted pants.

    Get it from Underclub for $61.25 (bralette available in sizes XS–2X and thong available in sizes XS–4X). 

    7. An oversized satin scrunchie so your messy bun can still look cute and trendy. Bed hair? Don't care!

    Jane Dottie Vintage

    Giant scrunchies are the accessory I never knew I needed. I have big, curly type 3 hair and I'm constantly putting it up and taking it down throughout the day. These adorable scrunchies make throwing my hair up in a messy bun so much more fun. The satin ones are especially great for being gentle on your hair. You can also find the organza rainbow scrunchie I'm wearing in the above photo or the cotton cow print on their site as well.

    8. A pair of flower-embellished Betsey Johnson drop earrings to add a bit of flower power to your ensemble. The iridescent gems go with almost any outfit and add a whimsical touch.

    Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

    I am big on earrings, I always feel so much more put-together when I'm wearing some. And when I came across these ~gems~ I had to have them. I love that they're iridescent, so they match almost any top. These are also really lightweight so they don't bother me throughout the day. And the fact that the metal structure is rose gold is the cherry on top for me, a basic millennial.

    Promising review: "Super adorable! I love them and so glad to have something to make my outfits pop. A little shine never hurts anyone, especially in the current pandemic. I feel so pretty with them. I have larger lobes, so I use a plug to wear them. Cute, comfortable, and brings style to any outfit!" —K.

    Get them from Amazon for $19.82+ (available in three colors).

    9. A pair of chic paper-bag-waist pants that are cute, comfy, and available in tons of colors. They'll pair perfectly with your fave frilly top or style-up your go-to solid shirt.,

    Promising review: "I'm in LOVE with these pants as they are good quality and stylish! I love how you can dress them up or down and the bow and pockets add such a nice touch (I love pockets in anything). I already have the olive color in my cart and will be buying them VERY soon. They fit perfectly and are lose/tight in all the right places. I love wearing these to work as they are comfy and don't constrict anything. Highly recommend!" —Natasha

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and 32 colors and designs, including multipacks).

    10. A shaggy open-front jacket to throw on over your little black dress — or even a T-shirt and jeans — for a bold style statement.

    model wearing the jacket in gray

    Promising review: "Bought this for California nights out and am in LOVE! The jacket is made well and actually fits! I read the other reviews about the jacket looking 'sparse' and some of the fringe being sewn into the seams. Mine did have a few areas like this, but I fixed them by using an unsharpened pencil or the skinny end of a makeup brush and gently pulling the fringe out from the seam. If you're on the fence, just buy it! Great $/wear, and I'm probably going to buy the black, too!" —Autumn Beck

    Get it from Amazon for $20.98+ (available in sizes S–XL and seven colors).

    11. A printed midi skirt and tank set you can quickly throw on with some sandals or sneakers and just know that you look bomb. It's comfy, trendy, and perfect for sunny days — which is my fave combination.

    I love a matching set because it takes most of the work out of putting an outfit together. And this one is such a great deal! I love how comfy and easy it is to wear. I was concerned about it being see-through, but it wasn't! It has a stretchy waist and a cute tie detail in the front of the skirt. For chilly days, I just throw a denim jacket over it. I would 100% buy more colors in this — and there are so many to choose from!

    Promising review: "Absolutely LOVE this! I want to order a few more in different colors! It’s stylish, dress it up or wear it casual! I got lots of compliments. Very comfortable and soft. Moves nicely with the body! Very cool looking top!" —Jules

    Get it from Amazon for $18+ (available in sizes XL–5XL and 36 colors/prints).

    12. A maxi cutout dress to rock for your next date night — whether it's with your partner or a solo night out. This sultry number will def have you feeling yourself.,

    Promising review: "Ten stars. Absolute best dress I’ve purchased on Amazon! Amazing fit. Beautiful, perfect neutral. Not see-through and super comfortable. Makes me feel like a goddess. I’m in love." —T.C.

    Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

    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!

    14. A set of four pearl-embellished velvet headbands for an easy and chic way to fix a hairstyle that just isn't quite cooperating.


    Promising review: "Beautiful pearl-adorned headbands! The material is velvety and great quality. The pearls are attached super well, not worried they will fall off. They are comfortable on myself and still fit my 3-year-old daughter. Great selection of colors: black, cream, pink, and a muted mustard shade. Overall an amazing purchase for a good price." —Lisa Velasco

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $10.99.

    15. A sexy and supportive underwire bodysuit guaranteed to make you want to take a million selfies. You can opt for a chic black or white to pair with any bottoms or a more vibrant color that'll really stand out in your closet.,

    Promising review: "I purchased this bodysuit to wear to a concert and didn’t think I would ever wear it again, but I was PLEASANTLY shocked with how amazing it turned out. I have a larger bust but a smaller waist so I ordered a small; the fit was perfect. The straps adjust really well and everyone LOVED my outfit." —Hope Perkins

    Get it from Amazon for $18.88+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 11 colors).

    16. A gorgeous backless maxi dress — it's honestly so good, you don't even need a special occasion to wear it. Outdoor dining? Perfect. Date night at home? Yup. Going to check the mail? You bet.

    Promising review: "Extremely cool and comfy. Dress is extremely long but it's so beautiful that I didn't mind holding it up as I walked. For the price I absolutely love the material its made from as well." —BW

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 27 colors).

    17. A pair of bell-bottoms, because pretty much anything nostalgic is on trend right now and these are no exception. They're so fab and versatile, they may even convince you to take a break from your skinny jeans every so often.,

    Promising review: "I am breathing, sneezing, dying, coughing, LIVING for these pants!!! They are great quality. 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 $30.98+ (available in sizes 1–15 and XL–3X and in 18 colors and styles).

Not see-through, breathable material. I highly encourage EVERYONE to get a dress from here. It’s so obvious how much the seller cares about the items and their customers. I will 100% be shopping here again, excellent job." —SOPHIA DUFFY

    Get it from Starbee Inc. on Etsy for $34.99+ (available in sizes S–2X and two colors).

    19. A crop top and pant set to take all the thought out of getting dressed. Throw on this set with any neutral shoe and you'll instantly feel like a fashion influencer.,

    Promising review: "I am so obsessed with this set! I own it in orange (gorgeous shade!) and loved it so much that I ordered the teal — the teal is darker than depicted and is more of an emerald color so I’ll likely be exchanging for a different color. The material doesn’t have much stretch and feels similar to linen; it’s super lightweight and perfect for summer — the side slits on the pants allow for great airflow and make this outfit heat- and humidity-approved. I wore it in Charleston during a heatwave and didn’t sweat to death, so you can take my word for it." —Alexa H.

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 11 colors).

    20. A lace tank top, because everyone needs a little lace in their closet. The top can easily be styled for a more casual day of hanging out at home or be paired with heels for happy hour.,

    Promising review: "I love these shirts. They are so light and comfortable and pretty. They're perfect for any outfit. I live in Florida — so I need light blouses because of the heat and humidity. I have four or five so far, and I may order more. I love them!" —MBC

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in nine colors and patterns).

    21. An asymmetrical crop top that's simple enough to wear all the time, but still adds that "I'm sexy and I know it" vibe to the look.,

    reviewer wearing the taupe-colored dress

    Promising review: "The go-to dress. With a nice-weight fabric and a front tie, this very comfortable T-shirt dress is kicked up a notch into a decent-looking outfit. I love how I can just throw it on, add earrings and a pair of flats or heels, and I get compliments for being nicely dressed. I love the pockets! Whenever I take a trip, this easily packable dress comes with me. I bought gray and blue, and then this year I bought green. All are true to color." —PAM

    image of reviewer wearing the floral high low skirt with a black ruched crop top

    Promising review: "This is so comfortable and boho chic that it will definitely be in heavy rotation this summer. I wear the shorter area to the side, just as a preference, but it is long enough to wear in the front. The length is perfect and hits just above the floor on me. I've worn it with heals and flats and it looked amazing both ways." —Jennifer Butler

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in women's sizes S–XL and 12 styles).

    27. A stretchy velvet cami you can layer under a stylish leather jacket or wear on its own depending on the weather. Is it just me or does velvet always take an outfit to the next level??

    reviewer wearing the cami in pink with a leather jacket and jeans

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 18 colors).

    28. A neon minidress, because bright colors are always a fun way to switch things up. The loose silhouette and ruffle sleeve details make this the perfect party dress — and what fun is playing dress-up without a few great party dresses?,

    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.
