Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A button-up tank you can dress up for work (hello, cardigan!) and down for casual weekends. I can practically hear your closet begging you to buy this.


    Promising review: "My favorite thing about this top is that it doesn't cling to your body. It's loose fitting but in a flattering way. The straps are also adjustable, so you can make the neckline come up higher if you don't want to show cleavage. I ordered my usual size (medium), but I could have sized down in this. I would say for a loose fit, stick true to size, and size down for a form-fitting fit." —Jasmine L.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 19 colors/prints).

    2. A striped top guaranteed to become your go-to, casual staple this summer. This paired with your best denim? I'm already in love.


    Promising review: "This shirt is light and wonderful for a hot summer. Fits well and color and fit is exactly as described. looks great with a pair of shorts or jeans." —JC

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 29 colors/prints).

    3. A satin wrap dress featuring a ruffle trim, adjustable straps, self-tie waist, and I can keep going on about how adorable this number is!

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $34.90 (available in sizes 0X-3X).

    4. A vacation-ready jumpsuit in possibly the coolest print ever that's perfect for your sunny wardrobe. It'll look just as cute paired with sandals as it will with wedges, so just another reason to wear it all the dang time. /

    Promising review: "This jumper is so cute. I'm 5'5 and 165 lbs. I bought a medium and it fits well. There is a bit of extra space in the crotch area but it doesn't mess up the outfit — and besides it was inexpensive. Also, you can still wear a low cut bra and it wont show in the front peep holes. I'm so excited and I cant wait to wear this. Perfect for vacation or a bbq. The material is light but not thin or see through." —Shopping for fun

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes S-3XL and 15 prints).

    5. A pleated skirt you'll have to pry from your t-shirts' dead cold hands. Seriously, all the tops in your closet are gonna L-O-V-E this.


    Get it on sale from Boohoo for $16 (originally $32; available in sizes 2-10).

    6. A two-piece, high-waisted swimsuit with such an affordable price tag, it would be a sin not to get one in, like, 10+ prints. A top *and* bottom piece for under $25? Get out.,

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS! Oh my gosh. I have never felt more comfortable or confident in a bikini in my life. It covers what I want covered and accentuates what needs to be accentuated. I'm 5'3 and roughly 145 lbs. and the large fit perfectly. The leg holes are not tight at all (which is where I expected to have trouble because my hips don't lie). The top is a little big and far apart but I simply twisted it to make them closer and now I have zero complaints." —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in sizes S-4XL and 21 prints).

    7. A paper bag short worth planning an entire brunch around. The wrap! The blue and cream stripes! *Swoons*, it's all too much.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $22.90 (available in sizes XS-L).

    8. A skater dress you can wear to work with a cute blazer, and then straight to happy hour. And then maybe to bed, and on the weekends, and basically just all the time.


    Get it from Asos for $48 (available in sizes 12-26; also in sizes 0-14).

    9. A front-tie blouse featuring ruffly sleeves and self-covered buttons that'll add a flirty twist to any simple outfit. I will take one in every color, please!


    Promising review: "I'm pleasantly surprised by how thick the material is. I ordered white and was prepared for it to be too sheer to be worn without a camisole inside, but the material is actually thick and opaque! I love the button down design of the blouse — so vintage and feminine. I'm 5'3, 125 lbs. and the small was a little too big, but still wearable." —Faith Ang

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 32 styles/colors).

    10. A cami jumper that is *PROOF* comfort and style can go together like two peas in a pod. Plus, it gets a 10/10 for versatility since you can wear it with a tank in the summer and a long-sleeve shirt in the winter.


    Promising review: "I love, love, LOVE this jumper! It fits true to size (I usually wear a small but wanted it comfy and loose, so a medium was perfect). It wears like PJs with the soft fabric. It’s easy to get on and off, and is versatile for year round. I would totally buy it again and again, and have recommended it on my Instagram and to friends." —Selena

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and 13 prints/styles).

    11. Pink gingham pants for a pop of fun color that'll have everyone ~checking~ you out — aaaaand then asking where they can get a pair for themselves.

    Get them on sale from Nasty Gal for $20 (originally $40; available in sizes 2-10).

    12. A button-down midi dress (WITH POCKETS!) available in tons of prints and colors so you're set for your next summer getaway.,

    Promising review: "Get this dress. I am so pleased with the fit and the quality, and I can't wait to wear it out on vacation in a couple of weeks! I'm 5'0, 180 lbs., and curvy. I got the medium and it fits perfectly. There's a little bit of stretch so you could probably size down if you wanted to." —Kelli

    Get it from Amazon for $20.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and 34 prints/colors).

    13. An off-the-shoulder shirt — aka the statement-making top that can be worn around the office or with jeans on the weekend. We love a multifunctional piece, yes we do.


    Promising review: "This shirt fit great!! The material is good quality and lays very nice. Based on other comments, I did downsize to a medium, which I am so glad I did. I am 5’7, 190 lbs., and normally wear a large or x-large depending on the material. I highly recommend this shirt. When I tried the shirt on I immediately got online and ordered another color. Trust me, you'll be beyond pleased if you purchase this shirt." —Amazon Customer

    14. A flowy duster that looks like it came straight from some fancy department store when in reality, you just know where to find all the good steals.


    Promising review: "Listen ladies!! This is a very thin coverall garment. It feels sexy on, it blows in the wind, it’s definitely an attention getter because it flares and hangs so attractively. You want this in your summer wardrobe, honey. Wear them with shorts, leggings, jeans, and bathing suits; IT'S GREAT FOR CRUISES!! Have Fun With It!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-5XL and 19 prints/colors).

    16. A cold-shoulder maxi so effortlessly chic and ridiculously cheap, you won't be able to pass it up. /

    Promising review: "I was so pleasantly surprised at how flattering this dress was. It is thin and breezy but didn't seem to be see through. I got the 0XL, (I usually wear XL, 1X, 14-16 in most clothes) and I found it to be true to size. Also, PLEASE make it in black!!!" —Aria

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in sizes 0X-5X and 19 prints).

    Get it from Missguided for $30 (available in sizes 2-10 and petite sizes 0-10)

    20. A satin cami that'll give all your other camis a run for their dang money. Say hello to your new favorite layering piece.


    Promising review: "Worth every penny! Beautiful v-neck cami! The 'V' is front and back so you can wear the deeper V in the front or back. I will wear this by itself or layer it. I will be ordering more colors. Fits as expected. I ordered an XS. It might run a tad big for an XS. Very comfortable, though!" —douglasncali

    Get it from Amazon for $10+ (available in sizes XS-XXXL and 16 colors).

    21. A pair of paper-bag trousers with pockets AND a tie, ruffle waist for a work ensemble that's as equally stylish as it is affordable — and I'm not sure there is much that can top that! /

    Promising review: "Love these pants. Comfortable and washed well. I am 5'6, 120 lbs. and I ordered the medium. I wanted the fit to be a little baggy and it is. I would usually wear a small or size 4; based on the reviews I ordered one size up." —nocutename

    Promising review: "Loveeeee this dress! Fit perfectly. I ordered a medium and I’m 5’9, 160 lbs., and a 34D. Its adjustable straps, stretchy back, and tie front make for a more 'customizable fit', which is great when ordering online. Definitely have some leeway in either direction. The material is comfortable and thick enough. I was worried about not wearing a bra and the top showing nips, but it does not! Perfect sun dress." —Lyndie C.

I love that the pockets are nice a deep — I will be able to carry my phone without worry that it'll fall out. I adore this skirt and look forward to wearing it to work (I tend to overdress for work but hey, you only live once). For those looking to order, make sure you go off the size chart in the product description as it gives you the measurements." —Jessi

    26. A cutie crop top to style up any pair of jeans, because summer is here and we must gear up our wardrobe for such a chic season!!


    Promising review: "The top is very cute but it does run large. I went with what the previous reviews said and ordered a size down and it still fits a little loose but is still very cute. I’m a true size medium and ordered the small. 34D, 144 lbs., 5’7, and 28-inch waist for reference." —Trixi

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and 14 prints/colors).

    29. A boho-style wrap dress you can also snag in polkadot and floral prints — and with a price tag like this one, you should absolutely do that!


    Promising review: "I purchased this in XL and I absolutely love it. I am 5'6 and 162 lbs. The dress is a true wrap dress! You pull the belt through a loop and you can tie it at the back or side. I love the fit and ease. This dress is cotton rich with some polyester, but very comfortable It is long to the ankles which is perfect for me. It's the one to wear on a casual date or a cover up on the beach. So pretty." —Christina Primazon

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and 13 prints).

    30. A peplum wrap blouse perfect for any occasion. Dinner date? Grab some heels and leather leggings. Work? Trousers and a blazer, and you're ready to go.


    Promising review: "If I could give this 20 stars I would. LOVE THIS BLOUSE!!! It's sexy and girly. You may need a camisole under it, but it's a beautiful feminine blouse. I ordered the 0XL and I'm a 36DD and it fits perfect. Wearing to my office Christmas party this year (2018). I've also ordered ALLLLLLL the other colors available in my size. Wear with jeans and heels...and summer here I come!" —SoozanJBee

    Promising review: "I'm 5'9 with a 27-inch waist and 40-inch hips. The medium is a perfect baggy, but not overly baggy fit. For me, it's ordering a size down. I'd typically order a large. Thanks to the other reviews I went for the downsize, albeit a bit nervously, but it turned out perfect. These overalls are super lightweight and extremely comfy. Will be ordering more!" —Jo

    Get them from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes S-XXXL and six styles/colors).

    32. A cactus-print crop top that'll make a ~sharp~ transition from your gym bag to your casual wardrobe.


    Promising review: "While it is super thin, it’s just as the picture shows and the sizing is true! It’s not too long which was amazing, seeing as almost every crop top I buy off of amazon tends to be. I used it for a photo shoot with a friend and it looked great! 100% would recommend." —Ashley Anne

    Get it from Amazon for $9.89+ (available in sizes XS-XL).

    33. A pretty lace-strap tank — and I think your other shirts have some serious competition with this in your closet.


    Promising review: "I’m actually super excited about this top!! Quality is great, especially considering the price. I’m a 34B, 5’7, and about 145 lbs. The bust area was a touch tight but just barely — otherwise the fabric is flowy but substantial and has some room in the waist. Straps and shoulders fit perfect. If you’re between sizes, size up. Really excited to wear it! Sexy and classy!" —Kristi Tolund

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in sizes S-XXL and 21 colors/prints).
