    1. An oversized sweater in a super-fuzzy knit for a hint of sexy to go with your cozy. Or because your front needs to stay warm and your back needs a dang breeze.

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

    Promising review: "Simply adore this!!!!! I was looking for a cute sweater for date night this coming fall and I love this!!!!! I’m debating about ordering more in different colors but this is just perfect!" —Marlyssa

    2. A satin blouse with padded shoulders and a triangular opening in the back for '80s vibes that will fit right in 2019 (and 2020, too).

    Nasty Gal

    Get it from Nasty Gal for $25 (originally $50; available in sizes 0–10 and in black).

    3. A bodysuit with the ~scoop~ (front and back!) on easy and cute dressing.


    Reviewers note it runs a bit small!

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 11 colors, both with short and long sleeves).

    Promising review: "I love how this bodysuit makes any outfit look instantly sleek and polished. The crotch snaps are particularly nice for when you have to go to the bathroom, haha! I love to wear bodysuits with denim and heels, or with a skirt for a smooth and seamless outfit that looks like it was made it be one piece. My favorite part is the scoop back, which isn't too low (you can still wear a normal bra). You can also put the shoulders down so that it is a sexier off the shoulder look. I definitely recommend this bodysuit if you're on the fence." —Roxanne

    4. Or a turtleneck bodysuit perfect for pairing with your favorite A-line skirt or mom jeans.

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

    Promising review: "The material is nice and thick — I was afraid it would be thin or see through, but it's very opaque! It's also very stretchy and fits comfortably. I'm very happy with this item!" —Emily O'Leary

    5. A spaghetti strap number ready to ask, "Oh you still don't have a dress for that dance? I've got you (un)covered!",

    It runs long, so you might have to hem it, but it's a great option for anyone who's tall and tired of dresses ~falling short~.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes 0X–3X and three patterns; also available in straight sizes S–L in one of the patterns).

    Promising review: "This dress is gorgeous and the material has a little weight to it so it lays very well and is super flattering. Took me a little bit to figure out the straps but it is spandex-y so I don’t need a bra or anything else under... and I am a 40DD! I ordered up one size but it gives a tad bit of room so definitely do NOT order up a size, it probably won’t be necessary. Overall will definitely order in another pattern." —La Viola

    6. A longline turtleneck with a tie in the back so you can choose exactly how much skin you want to expose.

    Free People

    Get it from Free People for $98 (available in sizes XS–L).

    Promising review: "I love this sweater! It is perfectly lightweight and soft, the open back gives it just enough to make it perfect for a night out. I usually have a problem with sleeves being incredibly long on me but this sweater has a little bit of 'cupping' at the end which kept them from sliding over my hands" —kbuf

    7. A lace-up-the-back bodysuit you'll never have to tuck... and retuck.... and retuck... throughout the day.

    Simply Be

    Get it from Simply Be for $16.99+ (available in sizes 16–20).

    Promising review: "This top came just in time for my outing yesterday and I just had to wear it the same day I got it. It's very chic and lightweight — I love love love it. It feels good on my skin too." —Kevi

    8. A long sweater with twisted detailing in the back to make dressing for a night out incredibly easy. Just add your fave comfy pants and statement earrings.


    Get it from Tobi for $18 (originally $80; available in sizes S–L and five colors).

    9. A strappy maxi dress in a pretty floral print sure to make you ready for a beach vacation.


    The straps tie in the back so you can adjust them — without having to fiddle with those plastic things that *uaually* come on adjustable straps.

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes 0/2–8/10 and four prints.

    Promising review: "It fit absolutely perfectly. This dress is SO darn cute. If you're thinking about getting it — DO IT! I had this in my 'saved for later' for months and every time I had an occasion, I was like man, I wish I had gotten it. Well, I did and I have no regrets!" —Amazon Customer

    10. A statement shoulder polkadot blouse for an easy (and inexpensive) way to try on *two* of fall's biggest trends.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and five colors).

    Promising review: "I’m obsessed with this shirt. This is my favorite material — so soft and stretchy! Even though it feels like you’re wearing pajamas, it’s also an adorable shirt for a night out! It looks plain and unassuming in front, and then BAM! Surprise in the back! I’ve worn it with a cute bralette, but petals would be fine too. It looks like it comes really far down/forward on my shoulders, but it actually stayed in place quite well. I wasn’t having to play with it all night." —SomethingAwesome

    15. A puff-shoulder, tie-back midi dress that'll make you feel ready for the ~lime~light. Step aside, fall and winter neutrals.


    Get it from Asos for $92 (available in sizes 14–24).

    16. A lace-up knit pullover, because sweater weather is vastly improved when you back can get a little breeze.


    Get it from Amazon for $18.98+ (available in sizes S–XL and six colors and patterns).

    Promising review: "I've found my new favorite sweater. Waiting for new colors to pop up so I can keep throwing my money at this company! The fit was comfortably loose. The dip in the back is super sexy in a casual way. I have even turned the sweater around to have the dip in the front (to show off my sternum tattoo). Despite the open area, the sweater is thick and keeps you warm. The material is genuinely nice and kept in tact during washing. I'm thoroughly impressed with this item and look forward to ordering more as more colors become available." —SFISH

    17. A barely-there bodysuit for anyone who loves geometry. Well, geometric straps, at least.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes XS–L and 24 colors and patterns).

    Promising review: "Just received mine and loved it so much that I had to wear it out that same night. Everyone kept asking where it was from, I got so many compliments. Love the material and that the front is doubled layered/lined so it holds the twins in nicely. At first I was worried about how it would look under jeans/pants, but you actually couldn’t see the lining at all under my jeans." —Katie Meyers

    18. A mock-neck crop top so you can ~buckle up~ a stylish look with minimal effort.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $14.99 (available in sizes S–L).

    19. A chiffon tunic top with a bow right under the scoop back, because you're a dang gift, so you should be dressed like one.,

    Get it from Amazon for $29.89+ (available in sizes S–3X).

    Promising review: "This top is just what I wanted. It fits well (not clingy) and the V-back is very nice and allows my butterfly tattoo to be exposed, which is what I wanted. No special undergarment is needed, a regular bra does not show in back or on shoulders. Stays put, does not drop off of shoulders. Stunning for an evening out, with jeans or with dress slacks. Compliments flowed when I wore this to a 'black & white' event! I am so delighted with this versatile top." —MizzGlow

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $79 (available in sizes XS–XL).

    Get it from Nordstrom for $99 (available in sizes S–L and in red).

    24. A crisscross-back sweatshirt for putting a ~twist~ on your go-to loungewear.

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99+ (available in sizes S–2X and four colors).

    Promising review: "Absolutely adorable! Nice heavy material and fit true to size. Slightly longer in the front (which I liked) and higher in the back to show off your Paired it with black Zella leggings and a criss-crossed back sports bra and it was the perfect comfy casual outfit that went from day to evening." —LiaS

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XXS–XL and 12 colors).

    Promising review: "My oh my was this dress a HIT. I looked hot, not going to lie. Wore it to a Christmas event in December and I can confidently say the quality and elegance of this dress is well worth the price. I'm honestly considering ordering a couple more of the colors that caught my eye, but all together I highly recommend this dress. Suggest getting some double-sided tape for the chest area though." —smash

    Get it from Eloquii for $64.95 (available in sizes 14/16–26/28 and three colors).
