    Promising review: "I've never been able to find a romper-type garment that doesn't ride up my behind or fit like it's only made for someone tiny, but this one is awesome! I like that I can tie it to adjust for my height and it doesn't feel like I'm wearing nothing." —Gina

    Model wearing the tee in black

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

    Promising review: "Great workout top! Cropped but a little longer in the front so that with high waisted workout pants your belly won’t hang out. Nice soft cotton fabric." —Anonymous

    9. Or if you want to go a little more ~fashun~, a longer muscle tee with padding at the shoulders for a more dramatic silhouette.

    Model wearing the top
    Pixie Mart

    11. A spandex-blend T-shirt dress for a one-and-done outfit your inner lazy fashionista will love to dress up with accessories. We love a year-round closet staple.

    Model in the dress in red

    Get it from Amazon for $8.45+ (available in sizes 1X–7X and three colors).

    Promising review: "This is so comfy! The green isn't as yellow as the picture makes you think, which is nice. I went one size up and the fit for me is perfect. I'm a 26/28 and ordered the 5X because I don't like things super clingy. I don't feel like I've lost my shape at all! Will most assuredly be buying more. You can wear this in every season, just add a sweater and boots in the fall, maybe some tights in the winter, and you're set!" —Brainy Heroine

    12. A pack of Kitsch satin scrunchies that'll work just like a satin pillowcase — but on the go — to fight frizz, breakage, and other hair damage.

    The scrunchie with text "saving my hair from damage, one sleep at a time)
    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    Reader, I love these scrunchies for my curly-frizzy-coarse and dry dry dry hair. I travel in them (they saved my hair on a looooooong set of flights to and from Australia this past January), sleep in them EVERY NIGHT, and I even wear them out when my hair is dirty and it's ~low bun time~ to dress it up a bit. I have absolutely noticed a reduction in breakage and the strands that cascade to the floor when I take my hair down in the morning for styling. If you're looking for a budget-friendly option to just add a little TLC to your hair care, I absolutely recommend these bbs. And in several months of constant use, there's been no stretching out, even though I have quite a bit of hair.

    Get a pack of five from Amazon for $7.99 (also available in black).

    13. A colorblock bodycon dress with a knot at the dress that looks like you matched a top and bottom — no one will ever know!

    Model wearing the dress in black and leopard print
    Kin by Kristine

    Get it from Kin By Kristine for $79.95 (available in sizes 12–22).

    Kin By Kristine is a Black woman–owned business founded by plus-size blogger Kristine Thompson (you've probably seen her blog TrendyCurvy!).

    14. 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 go-to piece is the perfect neutral top.

    Model in a light wash chambray and jeans

    Get it from Amazon for $25.50+ (available in sizes XS–2X and two colors).

    Promising review: "I have been looking for a shirt like this for over a year. I have bought and returned about five others as ill fitting or poor quality. This shirt is the perfect weight and fit. I love the length, the drape, everything about this shirt." —amberhead

    15. A gorgeous midi dress that's just a useful thing to keep around so you don't have to fret over what to wear to work, that last-minute party, or out for your friend's birthday dinner — this laser-cut dress works for all.

    Reviewer wearing the dress ing teal with laser-cut lace hem and sleeves

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes 0X–3X and three colors).

    Promising review: "Fantastic buy! What a steal!! This is such a nice dress. It’s definitely a midi length with good lining so it’s not see through. The fabric seems pretty durable, and there is a good amount of stretch at the waistline." —Carley

    It's also available in a shorter skater dress style in sizes for $24.99 (available in sizes XS–XL and six colors).

    16. An off-the-shoulder caftan maxi for a slouchy feel you can dress up and lounge in alike.

    Reviewer wearing the dress in black

    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 $17.99 (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

    17. A pair of bow-bedecked slides you can slide on even when running late, and still like you put some effort in.

    Model wearing the sandals in black
    Obi Grant / Lilly's Kloset

    Get them from Lilly's Kloset for $38 (available in sizes 6–9; also available in yellow, coral, and blue).

    Promising review: "I got them in black, coral and yellow and I’m in love!" —Imani W.

    Lilly's Kloset is a Black woman-owned online boutique founded by Kemetria Lilly in 2012.

    18. A satin midi skirt with a (hidden!) elasticized waist for all-day comfort and slinky chicness. You know you've had your eye on a skirt like this — now's your chance!

    Reviewer in the leopard print skirt

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (available in sizes S–XL)

    Promising review: "TL;DR: If you're on the fence about buying this skirt, buy it, it's awesome. Go with your usual size. I was a little hesitant to pull the trigger on this skirt. But I'm so glad I ended up purchasing because this skirt is literally the best piece I have ever ordered from Amazon when it comes to clothing. The quality is really nice. (And you can't do better than this price point — trust me, I looked.) This skirt literally looks good with everything. I styled with a white t-shirt (also from Amazon, I have a problem), denim jacket and wedges for a casual look for work. Pair it with a graphic band T-shirt and Vans for ~trendier~ look. Throw on a black tank top with this skirt and put on a pair of strappy black, heeled sandals and you've got yourself a look for a night out on the town. I will say it slides down just a little, but an extra small would definitely be too small for me. In things with an elastic waistband, I'm either a small or a medium. Buy the skirt, you'll be happy you did." —Caroline

    19. A multipack of geometric sheer socks so you can wear your go-to "uniform" from your capsule wardrobe, but change up your ~foot looks~ — and make pinching sandals and shoes a little comfier.


    Get a pack of five pairs from Amazon for $10.99 (available in eight sets).

    Promising review: "I love these! I thought they'd be quite flimsy because of the sheer material, but they actually feel like real socks, and I've gotten SO many compliments on them! Haven't tried washing yet, but so far, LOTS of bang for my buck!" —Rachael

    20. A knit tank for all the outfits you usually wear with a cami or cotton tank, but this time a little dressed up.

    Model wearing the tank in light pink

    Get it from Mango for $35.99 (available in sizes S–L and three colors).

    21. A gorgeous textured wallet that'll store (and organize!) your cash, boarding pass, passport, credit cards, and more — all while looking like a chic mini clutch.


    It's made of Rfid-blocking material too.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in 36 colors).

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this wallet. I needed a new travel wallet, and this holds everything I need all in one place, and it still closes nicely and stays flat! Boarding pass, passport, ID and credit cards, money, checked baggage tickets, receipts, etc! Yet it doesn’t bulk up or look like an overstuffed mess. Just amazing. The description says it only holds US money, but I just used the boarding pass flap to hold all my Japanese Yen (¥), which are larger. I didn’t use the zippered pocket for coins as I much prefer a separate coin purse for that sort of thing. I definitely recommend to anyone who travels a lot!" —Anthony Luu

    22. A deep v romper coverup so you can show off your swimsuit and quickly pop off the romper before diving in for a cool dip with minimal effort.

    Model wearing the drawstring-waist romper over a swimsuit

    Get it from Speedo for $44+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in white).

    23. A convertible backpack/shoulder bag, because you want to schlep all the things you need *and* be ready for an #OOTD pic in the middle of the street. AND this one has a zipper against your back, so it's theft-proof too!


    Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in three colors).

    Promising review: "I love this bag! The quality is amazing! The main pocket is the size of a typical large purse backpack and then the side pockets are as deep as the from of the bag! It’s amazing. The zippers are such good quality as well! The price of this bag is phenomenal compared to the quality." —Alice

    24. A twist-front crop top that'll replace your old, boring white tees (while being just as versatile!) for celeb stylist vibes without having to tie any knots yourself.


    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in sizes 0X–4X and seven colors). Get a similar style for sizes XS–L from Amazon for $13.99+.

    Promising review: "I love this top! I am a plus size woman and this crop top was perfect! I ordered a 1x and it fit great, and it wasn't cut too short, like most crop tops! The material has stretch too it and wasn't too thick or thin. I will be ordering this in other colors!" —Brittni

    25. A supernova-print sports bra for the fitness enthusiast whose goal is to ~reach for the stars~. The stars are reflective so you can be easily spotted by cars, too!


    Get it from Amazon for $29+ (available in sizes XS–3X and three non-reflective colors) and the leggings for $41.28 (available in sizes XS–3X).

    Promising review: "I started running again and have been using a champion XL. These are comfortable, easy to put on and take off. There are no gymnastics moves needed to take off like other sports bras. It keeps me dry and less sweaty. I ended up buying a couple of more. For champion sports bras, I was wearing XL. For these I'm using an L. I run, on average, 2.5 miles a day and I don't have to worry about support. I love these bras!" —Amazon Customer

    26. A perfectly worn-in denim jacket you can toss over your shoulders on breezy summer nights — and then rock for effortless layering all fall...and even under a wool cocoon coat come winter.

    Reviewer in the distressed jacket

    Size up if you want an oversized look!

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and two washes).

    Promising review: "SO CUTE! Looks and fits just like the photo. The denim is super soft and worn-in which is perfect for the oversized fit because it prevents it from looking bulky. Reminds me of something you'd find at Free People but for a fraction of the cost. Very happy with my purchase." —Olivia Saccameno

    27. A minimalist faux leather handbag that'll fold down neatly for easy storage in your already overfull closet, which is good because you might want one in every color!

    A reviewer carrying the square bag in yellow, holding it through the circular handle opening

    Get it from Amazon for $17.90+ (available in 12 colors).

    Promising review: "The purse came folded flat (which I was initially concerned about but it opens up beautifully thanks to faux leather), so now I know it can be stored the same way without damaging the bag. I need another purse like I need a hole in the head, so the bonus of said purse taking up almost no space in the closet is an unexpected win and will probably result in me purchasing additional in other colors because the quality is great for the price point and I love the unfussy style." —Amazon Customer

    28. Stylish joggers for all the comfort of cozy sweatpants, but cute enough that you won't even feel like trying one of those "how to style sweatpants" TikToks.

    Reviewer wearing the joggers in back with white stripes at the cuffs

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 32 styles)

    Promising review: "I'd been looking for a pair of sweatpant-like pants that weren't sloppy to wear running errands, but also are comfy for around the house relaxing. These are perfect. I ordered a size up since I wanted a a loser fit. They fit great, the pockets hold a ton of stuff (and without looking bulky) which I love. The fabric is soft and has held up through several washes so far without any pilling. They also go well with the crop tops I have." —Sophiesaur

    29. A pair of Teva flatforms I personally own and have worn approximately 5,000 times (a slight exaggeration, but not much). Comfort, durability, and height?! Ya love to see it.

    The flatforms with black stripe on the sole in white

    Get them from Nordstrom for $74.95 (available in sizes 5–100 and three colors).

    30. Stretchy leggings masquerading as slim-cut dress pants you can tailor to your style (add a blazer, long sweater, etc.) so you remain comfy all day whether working from home or in the office, but also feeling profesh., Amazon

    They have seam detailing like regular pants, plus back pockets. And reviewers note they wash up beautifully!

    Get them from Amazon for $20.70+ (available in sizes XS–XXL, short, regular, and long, and eight colors).

    Promising review: "Exactly what I was looking for. Really comfortable and tight enough to wear with boots without bunching up, but not too tight. Was pleasantly surprised at the quality. Thick enough material to avoid ANY chance of being see thru. Seams are extremely sturdy and the detail makes them professional enough to wear to work. The rear pockets are also a win!! Definitely true to size. Will be ordering a few more pairs soon!!" —JG

    31. A pair of pointy-toe patent flats available in five shades of nude and with a cushioned sole you can really pound the pavement in.

    Model wearing the middle of the five shades of shoe, with all five pictured
    Cait Kelly / Rebecca Allen

    Get them from Rebecca Allen for $150 (available in sizes 6–11 and five colors).

    This brand was founded by Rebecca Allen, a Black woman who, frustrated while working in finance and unable to find the right pair of nude pumps, decided to start her own line — which now has flats, pumps, and ankle strap heeled sandals (all in five shades).

    32. A T-backed sports bra with double straps to keep everything up there supported and stylish — this'll look so cute under any low-back tops and dresses you have, too.

    Model from the back showing the double strand t-back

    It's made of moisture-wicking, four-way stretch fabric, and has removable cups!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 19 colors and patterns).

    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this sports bra! It is more supportive than I expected, but still light weight. It is so comfortable, it doesn't dig into my back or under my boobs like some sports bras. I got the blue and the color is so vibrant, I have washed it multiple times and it is holding up great so far. I love the look of the double straps as well!" —Shelby H.

    33. A tie-front chiffon top you can rock as a blouse or as a layering piece — just go with the ~flow~!

    Model wearing the top with jeans
    Forever 21

    Get it from Forever 21 for $14.99 (available in sizes 0X–3X and in white).
