    31 Pieces Of Clothing That'll Solve Your "What Should I Wear?" Problems

    Because getting dressed in the morning shouldn't feel like a chore.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors.

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

    1. A textured mini dress with a waist tie to make getting dressed on dark mornings (ugh why am I up this early?) a ~cinch~.


    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 18 colors and styles, both long and short sleeve).

    Promising review: "I have a long waist, so ties at the waist are a challenge, but this hits in a good spot and it's short but not micro short. Can be worn with tights/boots or flats — if casual, and a heel if you want to dress it up a bit (would look great with a chunky heel). The fabric is a kind of slubby woven cotton mix — you can see the slight texture if you zoom in — not overly stretchy and not too thick, which is great. The sleeves have not-too-tight elastic at the wrists, giving a nice flowy feel to the sleeve. Allover a great little dress. I'm buying another color now!" —Sherry L @ NYC

    2. A lovely lace tank your friends are going to need to get used to seeing you in, because you're wearing this every time you guys go out.

    Free People

    Get it from Free People for $58 (available in sizes XS–L and six colors).

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful, silky, all around perfect cami. I got it in the red, and I would definitely consider getting more. The v-neck and lace details make this particular cami unique and interesting. Love it!!!!" —siggielove

    3. A breezy high-low top *with pockets* to make posing for that photo op even easier — and keeping your lipstick on hand at all times, too.

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

    4. A pleated leather midi skirt for the perfect mix of twirl-all-day with an edge.


    Get it from Eloquii for $99.90 (available in sizes 14–28).

    Promising review: "OK, so it's pleather, or to spin it a different way, it is ethically fashionable faux leather. It is also fabulous, so don't let the material sway you. The fullness of the skirt really makes it feel decadent. I paired it with a sequined shirt, to make it a little more jazzy, but I love it with a brightly colored sweater or even just a white t-shirt and tennis shoes. Trust me, it's a good purchase. GET IT! Read Less" —Amy B.

    5. A snake-print mock-neck bodysuit for an effortl-hiss way to let this current trend ~slither~ into your closet — and stay tucked into your pants all day and all night.

    It has snaps in the crotch for easy peeing too, which is always a bodysuit must. Reviewers note that this is comfy and softer than you'd think!

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

    6. A velvet cami to give your plain white one a break for the winter and add a lil' something extra to your outfits.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and 12 colors).

    Promising review: "Absolutely incredible value for this super soft cami! The velvet stretch is perfect for a looser fit. Surprisingly very well made, I've seen versions of this camisole at Nordstrom for over $30! Such a good price I'm stocking up now!" —Julie K.

    7. An embellished shift that'll make for a ~sheerly~ perfect option for last-minute parties or all 5,000 weddings you were suddenly invited to.

    It comes with two versions: the one with pearls on the sleeve is made of velvet, and the one with floral embroidery on the sleeve is made of silky polyester.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 14 colors and styles)

    Promising review: "LOVE the dress! I purchased it with very low expectation as it is priced inexpensively. Turns out it is actually a nice dress! It is thick, not see through at all and does not feel cheap. The see-through sleeves were intact and the pearls were nice. I purchased this dress just because and ended up wearing it to a wedding. When my husband saw it he was quite impressed and even asked me what we paid for it; he couldn't believe it was under 15 bucks! Totally worth buying, great piece to your closet." —Josie Catrox

    8. A chambray button-down to pair with all your hard-to-match bottoms. From jacquard pants to wildly printed leggings to a sequin skirt and everything in between, this closet staple is the perfect neutral top.

    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $27.90 (available in sizes 0X–3X and two washes).

    9. A longline leopard print cardigan you can throw on over yesterday's clothes to make 'em look brand new.


    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in sizes S–XL and four colors of leopard print)

    Promising review: "I love it. It’s soft and good quality especially for the price. Usually a sweater/duster is a bit more expensive than a traditional fitting sweater so I wasn’t sure what to expect as far as quality but I’m very happy. Zero complaints. I’m excited to wear it this fall/winter!" —Tabitha

    10. A draped midi so you do ~knot~ have to fret over what to wear to work, that last-minute party, or out for your friend's birthday dinner — this knit dress works for all.


    Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (available in sizes S–L and three colors).

    Promising review: "SO ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! I need this in every color! The photo doesn't do it justice! Its a beautiful almost jersey feeling fabric with a subtle SHEEN that makes it look so much more expensive and luxurious. I am sooooo ordering the other colors!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!" —Patricia Coronel

    11. A metallic co-ord set that'll make it look like you tried, even though you didn't even have to match a top and bottom. Plus, you can mix 'n' match with other separates for outfits galore.


    Get the set from Torrid for $66.67 (originally $88.90; available in sizes 2X-6X).

    12. A tie-back sweater for when you're torn between going out with your friends and staying home in your PJs. This is the best of both worlds!


    Get it from Amazon for $11.88+ (available in sizes S–XL and six colors, plus three colors in a lace-up-the-back style).

    13. A velvet duster with a ruffled hem so you can sweep dramatically in and out of rooms — without the restricted-arm feeling you get with regular jackets.


    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 12 colors).

    Promising review: "I wore this to several different Christmas parties and received so many compliments. So soft and comfortable. I found myself touching myself a lot to feel the velvet. I would buy this in every color if I could justify the need." —Kris F.

    14. High-waist, slim-fit pants you might even choose over your leggings — these are high enough to wear with crop tops, never turn see-through, and are still just as comfy.


    I know, because I have five pairs of these myself (two black, one red, one burgundy, one navy)!

    Get them from Asos for $40 (available in sizes 00–24, tall, petite, and maternity, and several colors).

    15. A faux fur leopard coat for when your puffer coat just feels like a *whole* lot, and you want something more old fashioned glam.


    Size up when buying!

    Get it from Amazon for $49.98+ (available in sizes S–XXL)

    Promising review: "WOW! Actually purchased for a Halloween costume and was blown away on how good this coat looks. Lightweight enough not to be a heavy coat. Got multiple comments on how great this coat looked, and more people asked me where they could purchase it! Great, cute purchase for the cost." —Amazon Customer

    16. An all-over lace bodysuit you can tuck in easily under jeans or a skirt to ~top off~ your look.


    The front is lined and the back is ~sheerly~ stunning! And it has snaps at the crotch so you can pee easily 🙌 — it's the little things, amirite?

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in size 16–24 and three colors).

    Promising review: "I am long-waisted which makes most bodysuits super uncomfortable as they tend to ride up constantly. Not this one. It stayed [ut and looked adorable with a dark pair of jeans for date night. Loved it!" —SimplyPutSarah

    17. An off-the-shoulder caftan maxi for a slouchy feel you can dress up with gorgeous accessories.

    According to reviewers, order your usual size for a less slouchy fit, order a size up if you want that baggier, off-the-shoulder look!

    Get it from Amazon for $14.90+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 12 colors).

    Promising review: "I was expecting to be underwhelmed by this dress, but decided to give it a chance. It looks fine without a belt, but I added a high belt, a large necklace and some sandals and I absolutely LOVE this outfit. It is so incredibly comfortable, but still manages to look classy and dressed up. I have never gotten so many compliments on an outfit. The material is stretchy, but thick enough to drape well without being clingy. There was one spot on the sleeve that had some hanging threads, but I snipped them and is as good as new." —Angela

    18. A sleeveless chiffon blouse you can wear now under a sweater or blazer and all summer as-is to show off you professional side *and* personality at the same time.


    Get it from Amazon for $13.59+ (available in sizes XL–3X and three patterns).

    Promising review: "Gorgeous yellow and breezy material. It is the kind of material that would show a colored bra beneath it. Not completely sheer. Super cute, vintage vibes. Easy to wash!" —Mary Amazon

    19. A surprisingly stylish sweatshirt with side slits and a longer back for gym-to-hanging-with-friends dressing you'll want to put on your Instagram.


    Get it from Target for $24.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in light grey).

    Promising review: "I purchased three of these. They're so soft and washed very well. Didn't shrink and didn't have to iron. It looks like yoga wear from a high in boutique. You can wear a cami under so when the slit fly open on the sides you get a pop of color. I love these!!!! True to size." —Target Lover

    20. A light and lovely windbreaker that'll be a no-brainer when you're like "is it gonna rain?? is it not going to rain?" But not feel like you're wearing a whole dang raincoat. It's also perfectly packable for your next vacation!


    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in sizes S–4X and seven colors; sizes 1X–4X only available in the purple pictured on the left).

    21. A boyfriend-style blazer with patch pockets to hold your stuff *and* help you layer effortlessly, whether you're wearing a dress, dress pants, or looking for something to wear over your leggings.


    Get it from Nordstrom for $40 (originally $68; available in sizes 2–14 and four colors).

    Promising review: "This blazer is true to color, and the size and fit is as it looks in the photos. A good item that can easily go from daytime work to nighttime chic. Will be purchasing in other colors as well." —Gemstone21

    22. A polkadot dress so your feathers don't get in a ~ruffle~ when deciding what to put on after gazing into your closet abyss for 37 minutes straight.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and three colors).

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this dress, it fits perfectly and it's so adorable. The first day I wore it I got so many compliments and it was so comfortable. It was nice to wear as a dress or even a ling shirt with leggings. The color is really cute too, and even though it has three-quarter sleeves it was not hot at all. I definitely recommend it and will probably buy more in different colors!" —Jasmine Ball

    23. High-waisted faux leather leggings that'll feel oh-so buttery and upgrade your sweater-and-leggings outfit into style blogger territory.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes 2X–4X; also available in sizes XS–XL in the same listing).

    Promising review: "I got sooo many compliments! I love the way my butt looks in them. I'm a hairstylist and I loved how after a haircut i didn't feel itchy because the hair just slid off. They're fleece-lined too, so that is just a bonus in comfortable land! Love love love; them i got a 3X and they fit perfect! I'm usually super nervous with ordering pants online, but this was a win for sure." –M. Slotterbeck

    24. A plaid pinafore dress straight from your fall/winter fashion mood board — just pair with a cozy knit turtleneck or sheer top (and over-the-knee socks, duh!) for ~layers~ of cuteness.


    Get it from American Eagle for $23.97 (originally $39.95; available in sizes XS–XL).

    25. An A-line button-down miniskirt you might be ~suede~ to buy more than one of. Get a different color for each day of the week!


    Get it from Amazon for $18.88+ (available in sizes XS–XL and seven colors)

    Promising review: "This skirt is super cute and fits perfectly! It was exactly what I was looking for because it can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion. I'm somewhere between a small and medium for bottoms, and I ordered a small and it fit perfectly. The texture is really satisfying and doesn't have a fake feel to it even though it's faux. As a note, it really does button all the way down, there are no zippers." —Natasha

    26. A pair of floral-print culottes for anyone who's often torn between a skirt and pants — these bbs'll dress up any occasion, without your having to choose!


    Get them from Elvi for $24.22 (available in US sizes 4–24).

    27. A flowy animal-print wrap skirt that'll be a closet staple through all four seasons — with a light sweater in the spring, breezy tank in the summer, a moto jacket and booties in the fall, and fleece-lined tights, heels, and a turtleneck in the winter.


    Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in sizes S–XL and four patterns).

    Promising review: "Obsessed with this leopard wrap skirt. I paired it with a mock turtleneck bodysuit and a leather jacket and it looked great. You could also pair with a chunky sweater for winter. This is a skirt you can dress up or down and wear in so many ways. It’s a steal for under $25!" —Kim C.

    28. A perfect pair of cotton denim overalls for a casually stylish break from your jeans-and-a-tee outfits.

    Get them from Amazon for $21.80+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and three washes).

    Promising review: "These are so comfy. I bought these on a lim and prayed they would work for a trip a had a few days later and they were PERFECT! I am curvy so I had a hard time finding the perfect pair and I can’t believe I found them on amazon. They do run like a boyfriend fit. If that’s not what you’re looking for then I would size down!" —Meagan

    29. A classic wool-blend coat you can pull out when your puffer isn't quite dressy enough for your look — but you still want to stay warm.


    Get it from Abercrombie for $88 (originally $220; available in sizes XXS–XL and six colors).

    Promising review: "I love this coat so much! It fits perfectly I can layer it with sweaters and it still fit perfectly. I live in Michigan and its keeps me warm which I was nervous about it." —Grace

    30. A mega-full tulle skirt to take out for a ~twirl~ at least once a week. Party? Photo shoot? Fancy event? Regular ole Thursday? Wear this.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.90+ (available in sizes S–5X and 44 colors — you can even customize the color *and* the exact waist size and length).

    Promising review: "I bought this skirt for my birthday shoot and honey it was gorgeous! I received so many compliments from people who were passing by. I felt like a little cupcake and the color was exactly what I wanted and envisioned. Thanks so much!" —Gabrielle Johnson

    31. An oversized v-back maxi that'll make packing for your next trip so much easier — and turn any beach, pool, or sweltering city into your own personal catwalk.


    Can you say effortless vacation dressing? And P.S. it has pockets too!

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS–L and eight colors).

    Promising review: "I love this dress! The pockets are great, the fabric feels nice. It's kind of a slinky type of fabric — dense enough that it doesn't really show lines underneath, but not hot. The slit is the perfect height. I went hiking while wearing this dress (unexpectedly!) and it was able to tie it up. I have a back tattoo, and I like that the back is cut out so my tattoo is visible. The dress is cut low enough to let your skin get some air, but high enough to be appropriate in any setting." —Shayna
