    Promising review: "The sweater is perfect for layering! I have layered J. Crew cardigans and open front sweaters on top and button downs underneath. But it is also great alone. It’s nicely form fitted and not super hot. These sweaters hold up well. I’m 5’4” and 110 lbs and I wear an xs if I want it a little less form fitted to put a button down underneath and an xxs if I want it very form fitted." —Rachel

    Price: $39.50+ (originally $69.50; available in sizes XXS–3XL and in 10 colors)

    2. A pair of corduroy slip-on sneakers with the softest sherpa lining that will make you feel like you accidentally left the house in your slippers. A great alternative to your usual old sneakers, these slip-ons are incredibly comfortable and the corduroy adds a chic touch.

    Promising review: "Ordered these for fall and have worn them already all day as a preschool teacher. Very comfortable and got several compliments. The lining makes them seem snug at first but after you walk around for just a minute, it packs down making them very comfortable. Cozy but not too warm. Ordered my usual size." —Putt

    Price: $44.50 (originally $85; available in sizes 5–12)

    3. A quilted puffer vest with a gingham lining that you will undoubtedly reach for every time you leave the house. The quilting detail, gingham lining, and gold snap pockets give this vest a high-end look for an unbeatable price.

    Price: $49.95 (originally $89.50; available in sizes XXS–3XL and in four colors)

    4. A striped V-neck cardigan sweater made from extra soft yarn because you can't go wrong with a classic stripe. This has cozy written all over it.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "This sweater is so soft! It’s the perfect length and sits exactly at the hips and is very true to size. It is more fitted, if you like something more oversized, size up!" —VAMama

    6. A pair of rolled cuff pajama pants with an adorable wine and cheese print that will go well with the fancy wine-and-cheese Netflix soiree happening on your couch this weekend.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "Crisp cotton pajama. Nice enough looking to wear lounging with a tee and very comfortable to sleep in. I replaced a pair of J. Crew pajama bottoms I had for over a year with this pattern. I like that they are not clingy. They are cool to sleep in on warm nights but not so light they can’t be worn in cooler weather. I’m 5’5” and 125. Ordered a small- it fits loose enough to be very comfortable. Thinking I better get another pair!" —Marg

    Price: $26.50 (originally $45; available in sizes XXS–3XL)

    7. A cozy plaid flannel shirt made for chilly fall days and cold bonfire nights. The fit makes this button down ultra comfortable and as one reviewer said, "grab your early fall flannel shirt and your favorite pair of jeans and you've got your apple-picking outfit all planned!"

    Price: $29.50 (originally $59.50; available in three sizes and two colors)

    12. A faux leather zip-top tote you won't believe is under $50. This gorgeous bag has a simple, elegant silhouette and ample space for your iPad, planner, extra sweater, umbrella, mask, countless snacks, and more!

    Promising review: "This is the most beautiful chambray shirt I ever seen, I have a few of them and this is so different it is somewhat in between chambray and linen looking shirt definitely looks very different than a denim shirt if you own one. I’m obsessed with it, the color blue is so beautiful, the length is perfect to wear with leggings, definitely enough coverage in the back area. It’s very light and is perfect for layering." —Sibmar

    Price: $39.50 (originally $69.50; available in sizes XXS–3XL and in two fits)

    14. A pair of cropped leggings that are a longtime reviewer-favorite and a must-add-to-cart item. They come in a classic black as well as three fun patterns, they hold their shape, and are fully opaque. The perfect pair of leggings as far as I'm concerned.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "I’ve never had a pair of leggings I love more! Seriously so great. Not too high waisted. Not too low cut. A tad higher than mid rise those. So comfortable. Not see through. Appropriate for work. Warm. High quality." —Raeraee

    Price: $22.50 (originally $39.50; available in sizes XXS–3XL and in four colors)

    15. A gold paper-clip link bracelet to add to your arm party. This dainty bracelet has the timeless look of fine jewelry and looks great on its own or stacked with your other favorites.

    Promising review: "I bought this striped tee in the hopes it would be better quality than one I bought from another brand. The material is thicker and the stripes are well aligned from front to back. It washed well on delicate wash and hung to dry - no shrinkage. It also kept its shape well unlike my other brand tee that developed a misshapen neckline. I will be buying more tees from J Crew in the future!" —Grace

    Price: $14.50+ (originally $24.50+; available in sizes XXS–3XL and in five colors)

    17. A pair of marled jogger sweatpants – one reviewer said they are "basically the softest, most comfortable thing I've ever put on my body." Yes, please.

    J. Crew Factory

    Promising review: "The fabric is super comfortable. Similar styles/fabric are also being sold at other retailers, but I absolutely love the extra length in the leg/at the ankle on the J.Crew brand. This is the ultimate lounging/sleep pant." —TJGA

    Price: $34.50 (originally $59.50; available in sizes XXS–3XL and in two colors and fits)

    18. A printed ruffle top that's a versatile, elevated neutral great for layering under a cardigan for Sunday brunch or dressed up with a blazer for a day at the office.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this top. It’s super comfortable. The ruffles stayed nice. I got lots of compliments on it. I wear a large or xl sometimes but I purchased the xl and it was perfect. I also got the matching shoes and it’s adorable!" —Grace

    Price: $38.50 (originally $64.50; available in sizes XS–3XL)

    19. A classic plaid scarf because everybody needs one in their closet. Those freezing cold days are not too far off, but fear not, this giant cozy scarf has got you covered.

    21. A gold three-layer necklace to give you the layered look without having to buy three necklaces. This mix of three different chains looks like it came from a cool boutique jeweler when really, it's under $20. Score!

    Price: $19.50 (originally $44.50)

    Promising review: "I bought this skirt in gray and LOVE IT! Very versatile to wear from fall to winter with tights. It fit true to size on me. I ordered my usually size 2 for J.Crew skirts. I plan to wear it with a white artist tee and camel Chelsea sweater." —Heatherly

    Price: $39.50+ (originally $69.50; available in sizes 0–20 and in three colors)

    23. A pair of black rain boots if you're tired of your feet getting soaked every time you're caught in the rain. Unlike knee-high boots, these aren't a pain to take off but still keep your feet dry and toasty like they should. Bring it on, rainy days!

    Promising review: "These boots are so comfortable! I own some tall name brand rain boots and while those work great, they’re hard for me to walk in. These are much better! I usually wear a 9.5 or 10 but sized down to the 9 based on another review and they’re perfect! Would definitely buy additional colors if they were available." —Kaela

    Price: $39.50 (originally $69.50; available in sizes 5–12)
