    27 Basics From Target That Reviewers Love And You Probably Will Too

    Including $10 leggings, cozy hoodies, and a leopard-print dress so you can match with Carole Baskin.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A soft, stretchy pair of black leggings that'll convince you to finally surrender the pair you're wearing to the washing machine.

    Target

    Promising review: "These leggings are great. They are super soft and fit perfect. I would buy them again." —Michelle6

    Price: $10 (available in sizes S–1X)

    2. Or, a pair of camo high-rise leggings so you don't have to hide your awesome sense of style — even if the only person who gets to witness it is your cat.

    Target

    Promising review: "Love these! I am very picky and I can’t believe how great these are — the price is amazing as well. I am 60 years old and was afraid these might be too much or too young for me, but they are wonderful! My daughters approve!" —Carlyjean

    Price: $14 (available in sizes XS–XXL)

    3. A cotton short-sleeve T-shirt dress if you're tired of wearing sweat pants and leggings all day...but also want to be comfy.

    Target

    Promising review: "I was so excited to get this dress. I wanted to try something different. I’m your tank top and tights kind of girl. But I’m so glad I got this dress. It’s dressy enough to wear on a date and not be overdressed. It's cotton so it’s soft and it doesn’t make you want to change after leaving the house. It didn’t shrink after being washed or fade; it’s still a nice dark black. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who’s not really a dress person." —Shoequeen

    Price: $20 (available in sizes XS–XXL and eight colors)

    4. A waffle knit cardigan with pockets and side slits so you can hide your sleep shirt from college on your Monday morning Zoom call.

    Target

    Promising review: "I love this sweater! It goes with everything! I got the mauve and am embarrassed by how much I wear it! I can wear it with a graphic tee or a nice blouse and it always looks great! I love that it's loose without being overly baggy. It keeps me warm without being too hot or itchy. Will be buying more colors! I'm usually a small or medium, and I went up to a medium to give a little more baggy look." —CarrieMFWB

    Price: $24.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and four colors)

    5. A high-neck poplin dress to help you feel cute even when you've been working from home for the last three weeks, there's a mounting pile of dishes that need to be washed, and you haven't cleaned your hair in days.

    Target

    Promising review: "This dress is even more beautiful in person. It has a Lolita or Victorian edge to it. Great price for the quality and sturdy fabric. It comes with a slip sewn to dress but I cut the thread binding the two because I feel like the slip isn't needed because fabric is THICK and not sheer, so I'm not sure why it came with slip. All in all, it's a beautiful dress, true to size, and a great price." —Jane

    Price: $28 (available in sizes XS–XXL and also in black)

    6. A breathable pair of lounge shorts if you always end up overheating in long pants.

    Target

    Promising review: "My favorite PJs ever and cute for a casual run to the grocery!" —mw76

    Price: $14.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and also in light gray)

    7. A simple scoop neck T-shirt that goes with everything for those days when you don't want to have to think about what to wear.

    Target

    Promising review: "I'm always a bit hesitant trusting reviews when buying clothes online without seeing them first in the store, whether it be due to the material, sizing, etc. But let me tell you how AMAZING these shirts were! The material was soft, stretchy and fit SO NICELY! If you're on the fence or hesitant about it, just do it! You won't regret it, and the price isn't bad at all considering a top like this would run twice as much in any other plus-size store." —Lauren

    Price: $9 (available in sizes 1X–4X and five colors)

    8. An animal-print short-sleeve collared dress because you just finished Tiger King and you want to channel the no-craps-given energy of Carole Baskin.

    Target

    Promising review: "I've only been wearing this dress for two hours and I've already received three compliments (one from a complete stranger) so that tells you something. The fabric feels comfortable, and it drapes nicely. I have a very large chest so I was worried about the buttons gaping open, but I'm pleasantly surprised to report there is no gaping. I own lots of leopard print, but I'm always wary of looking tacky, especially with all over prints, but this looks classy and sassy." —taranicole

    Price: $27.99 (available in sizes X–4X)

    9. A pair of cozy fleece joggers to treat your body to some buttery soft leg warmers.

    Target

    Promising review: "These are the greatest joggers I have ever owned. I ordered because I knew I would be at home for awhile and wanted something comfortable to wear that wasn't pajamas. These are SO SOFT. I am 5-foot-9-inches and it's hard to find joggers that are a good length, but these are perfect. I ordered the dark gray ones and immediately ordered the navy and light gray ones after. If there were more colors I would buy those too. I did get a little bit of pilling but nothing that would stop me from wearing them." —targetaddict

    Price: $19.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and four colors)

    10. Or lightweight wide-leg lounge pants for when you want to change out of your pajamas and into something a little more comfortable.

    Target

    Promising review: "I got these about a year ago, and still to this day they are my favorite. They’re so soft and comfortable. Sometimes I can even wear them with a cute top. They are loungewear, but so cute and comfy. They’re stretchy but fit perfectly!" —A

    Price: $19.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and also in dark gray)

    11. A crewneck sweatshirt with a high-low hem and slits on the side because your WFH wardrobe could use a little upgrade.

    Target

    Promising review: "So comfy!!! I get compliments every time I wear this. I ordered the blush color, which is honestly not in my wheelhouse. I love it!! Looks awesome with brown/rust colored boots. Although this is classified as a sweatshirt, the sleeves and hem are just enough to class it up a bit. Wear it with a gold necklace and I've been told it's a sweater. :)" —Debbie

    Price: $17.49 (originally $24.99; available in sizes X–4X and seven colors)

    12. A satiny V-neck blouse because you'll look put together without your coworkers ever knowing that you're wearing pajama bottoms.

    Target

    Promising review: "I love this blouse. It fits great, and I have had soo many compliments wearing both colors that I own. I loved the first one I purchased so much, I ordered a second one in another color." —Corky

    Price: $16.24 (originally $24.99; available in sizes X–4X and also in black)

    13. A seamless racerback sports bra so your boobs are supported during your daily workouts.

    Target

    Promising review: "Soft material and firm hold! No digging in the band either, which is a huge plus for me! This is my new favorite sports bra for low-medium intensity movement!" —crabdragoon

    Price: $16 (available in sizes XS–XXL and four colors)

    14. A pair of dark wash skinny jeans with a no-gap waistband for anyone still on the hunt for the perfect denim. Spoiler: these are it!

    Target

    Promising review: "After trying on several brands including Levi's, Democracy, Calvin Klein, Universal Threads, etc., these are perfect for me!!! I especially love the waistband. It has like a thick reinforced elastic thing going on. It doesn't roll down when you sit. Love the price and LOVE the jeans! Try them!" —Isaac1971

    Price: $27.99 (available in sizes 14W–30W)

    15. A slouchy hoodie that'll keep your ears warm and hide your bedhead. (How many days has it been now since you washed your hair?)

    Target

    Promising review: "Best. purchase. ever. Do not pass this up! The material is so soft and supple; the feeling and quality of this top feels very expensive. I would easily compare it to Lululemon or Alo Yoga... I bought it in two colors and probably will end up with the third!" —Kalia

    Price: $24 (available in sizes XS–XXL and also in dark gray)

    16. A plush bathrobe so your self-care routine feels extra luxe.

    Target

    Promising review: "Amazing robe! It's super soft and washes nicely while maintaining its original feel. I highly recommend! A great value for the price!" —nwad

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and also in white)

    17. A flexible playsuit for when you're lounging around and want your body to feel totally unrestricted.

    Target

    Promising review: "This is my quarantine uniform! It is so comfy and perfect. It runs big, but it’s supposed to. It shrunk a little when I dried it and now it’s just right!" —Mojomommy

    Price: $25 (available in sizes XS–XL)

    18. A cute tank dress that'll no doubt be a staple in your spring wardrobe when the weather finally decides to warm up.

    Target

    Promising review: "I just bought this dress, and I love it! It’s a little on the bigger side, so maybe consider sizing down, especially if you’re in between sizes or don’t like it looking too oversized. I’m 5-foot-10 and it hits me right above my knees. It looks good with a shirt under it, a sweater over it, or just by itself. I got it in the gray, and I think I might consider getting it in another color because I like it so much!" —yesss

    Price: $15 (available in sizes XS–XXL and 10 colors)

    19. A blouse if you're a fan of the classics but with a twist. You're gonna want to stand up and show it off during your Zoom call.

    Target

    Promising review: "Buy this! This will easily be your favorite purchase of the summer. Lightweight, comfortable and a classic. Great for work or something more casual." —Lori

    Price: $24.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and also in black)

    20. A pair of high-rise black skinny jeans because you can never have too much black denim in your wardrobe...never...I simply won't hear it.

    Target

    Promising review: "These jeans have been with me through thick and thin. I absolutely love them! True high rise, form fitting but stretchy, and I don't need a belt! These are the one pair of jeans I own that I don't need a belt for." —Anonymous

    Price: $24.99 (available in sizes 2 Short–18 Long)

    21. A chic knit maxi dress with a teensy bit of stretch so you can wear real clothes on your allotted daily walk.

    Target

    Promising review: "Super comfy, stylish, not see through!" —o0o

    Price: $24.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and three colors).

    22. A slightly oversized white button-up that'll pair just as well with a pair of jeans and booties as it will tucked into a pencil skirt and accessorized with cute mules and a statement necklace.

    Target

    Promising review: "'Boyfriend' shirts are typically oversized, like you pulled out a shirt from your bigger, taller boyfriend! So this is a true boyfriend shirt. Love it! If you want to wear it as a tucked in ladies' oxford shirt, you will need to order a lower size. The back of the shirt hangs a few inches longer than the front. PERFECT for wearing with a pair of black leggings, capri leggings, or skinny jeans. ADORABLE! The fabric is not see through. It also has a nice blend of cotton and rayon, so it is nice and soft. SO happy to have found this shirt at a great price!!" —HappyCA

    Price: $22.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL)

    23. A moisture-wicking tank top to keep you cool and dry as you exercise.

    Target

    Promising review: "This may only be a shirt, but I absolutely love it. It is so light, comfortable and airy. It does not stick to me when I sweat, it flows very easily and makes me comfortable when I am running or just wearing it casually. It has great coverage and the moisture wicking material really keeps you dry, cool and clean. I normally don't wear white, but I love this shirt so much that I actually want to wear white more. Highly recommend, you will love this shirt!!" —Amanda31

    Price: $16 (available in sizes XS–XXL and four colors).

    24. A pair of skinny high-rise ankle pants if you're in need of inspiration for your first-day-back-at-the-office outfit.

    Target

    Promising review: "I bought these pants for work and I love them! I work in a restaurant and I'm very active. These pants move great with me." —Michelle

    Price: $24.99 (available in sizes 0–18 and three colors)

    25. A pair of high-rise wide-leg cropped pants that'll satisfy your itch to try the wide leg trend. Good thing they're the perfect length to show off your new shoes.

    Target

    Promising review: "Rarely does anything look as flattering on me as it does on the models, but these pants actually do (and I'm wearing two sizes bigger than her). These have the feel of real jeans, despite the fact they have 2% spandex in them. The pockets are GREAT, and because all the stitching is the same color as the fabric, it doesn't draw attention to my hips, like these types of pockets sometimes do (with contrast stitching). They're the highest waist cut that Universal Threads makes, according to their tag, and I don't have the trouble I normally have of them eventually dropping lower and lower as I wear them, and having to either take in the waist or wear a belt to keep them where I want them. I really like them. They look great with a pair of Frye campus-style boots." —DeeCee

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes 14W–26W)

    26. A pair of belted overalls so you can ease into warmer weather by pairing with a sweater now and then a T-shirt (or just a cute bra!) in the summer.

    Target

    Promising review: "This jumpsuit is sooo adorable for spring/summer, and I love the fabric. It has a roomier fit, so size down if you want it to fit slimmer. I stuck true to size though and like the roomier look. It’s so cute!" —BrooklynAbby

    Price: $29.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL, three colors, and also in a plus-size version)

    27. Some super cute cat socks to keep your toes ~feline~ warm and toasty.

    Target

    Promising review: "Nice little socks at a nice little price. Comfy and stretchy. They are uniformly snug at the top, so they stay up without digging into your skin. Color is an up-to-date peachy pink. I like that they have a subtle cat motif — pays homage to the cat without overdoing it. :)" —Joanna

    Price: $2.50 (available in one size)

    You during quarantine, which is why you need some cozy new duds:
