    1. A super lightweight cropped muscle tank that won't give the moment you start sweating.

    the tank in white

    Promising review: "This tank is light as air, and it's just what I wanted for my summer heat workouts! It's not quite as fitted as the photos show, but that didn't particularly bother me (just an FYI). It is rather see-through once you get a sweat going, but I think that's pretty easy to guess based on the photos (but if you are very modest, just be aware of that). I really loved the color and the feel. I bought a second one because I loved it so much!" —Lilah

    Price: $26.99+ (originally $44; available in sizes XXS—XL and six colors)

    2. A super comfy dress made from recycled material to make you feel good about your purchase. It's also wrinkle-resistant, dries quickly, and has pockets. Woop-woop!


    Promising review: "I absolutely LOVE this dress! This one is my second. I bought the olive one last summer and was thrilled it came back this year. It's incredibly comfortable and effortless! The material is light as air and in this heat feels like nothing. Wrinkles are never a problem and it washes well too. It definitely runs large, so size down. I'll definitely buy another next summer. Please keep making this!" —LuvLeisure

    Price: $49.97+ (originally $98; available in sizes XS–L petite, XXS–XL regular, S–XL tall, and five colors)

    3. This flowy jumpsuit because it doesn't sacrifice comfort for fashion. You get both.


    Promising review: "OMG! My new favorite piece! The cut is killer — pull-on simplicity and it just falls into place! The fabric is breathable and weightless, flowy but substantial, like silk but better! I'm going to get one for everyone I know!" —Lettie

    Price: $29.99+ (originally $140; available in sizes XS–L petite, XXS–XL regular, S–XL tall, and two colors)

    4. An autumn-perfect romper that'll feel like silk on your skin because of how light it is. Plus, it has pockets *wiggles brows*.


    Promising review: "I never had a romper and always made an assumption that it would look silly...this one changed my mind! Fabric is light, and it flows and drapes nicely around the figure (doesn't stick!). I liked the button to keep it from opening in the front. Looks good with flats or nice pair of wedges." —AD

    Price: $24.99+ (originally $98; available in sizes XXS—XXL and three colors)

    5. A truly dreamy parachute dress you'll want to float around in all year.

    the dress in gray-white

    Promising review: "This is a statement piece! For me, this dress looks best with the waist ties untied. I tie each into a tiny bow to dangle at each side. I love the loose, flowy A-line shape! Feels so chic, comfortable, and cool. I bought it in an off-white color and in blue. The off-white is a very pale pinkish gray that is very sheer. I love this and have had fun wearing a black tube top and biker shorts or a neon bathing suit top with neon biker shorts underneath. The blue color is gorgeous and much dressier IMO. I haven't actually worn that one yet. I love how both can be so easily styled in a variety of ways." —magicCrystal

    Price: $29.99+ (originally $150; available in sizes XXS—XL and two colors)

    6. These cropped cargo pants perfect for running errands or just lounging around the house in thanks to their stretchy cotton and pull-on style.

    the pants in taupe

    Promising review: "These are by far my favorite pants Athleta has made. They are incredibly comfortable. I have traveled, biked, and run errands in these and they're the best because they stretch. I will be buying a second pair because of how much I love them." —Agent Scully

    Price: $44.97 (originally $98; available in sizes 4–14 petite, 0–16 regular, 4–16 tall, and in two colors)

    7. These soft belted pants as appropriate for work and special events as they are for your next marathon of The Office this weekend.


    Promising review: "I am not a review-leaver and I've never owned a pair of pants like this before, so anyone who is teetering on the edge, BUY THEM! I am absolutely obsessed. They are so comfortable! I work in healthcare and these are even more comfortable than scrubs with the same function. Again, obsessed." —Brenna

    Price: $39.99+ (originally $89; available in sizes 0–14 petite, 00–16 regular, 0–16 tall, and in five colors)

    8. A pair of these cult-fave ankle pants you can dress up or down. The knit waistband and stretchy material ensures comfort.


    Promising review: "Comfy and so stylish. Can be dressed up or down. More compliments than any other pant. Hard to believe how light and comfortable they are. I am a photographer and can squat down with the pant not constricting. Lots of give in the stretch but do not stretch out or become loose. I bought the brown, which is chic and different from my standard black! The perfect pant! Great for moms no doubt! Stylish and comfy." —Kelley

    Price: $44.99+ (originally $89; available in sizes 0–14 petite, 00–16 regular, 0–16 tall, and in seven colors)

    9. A pair of textured joggers for a nice change from your ratty old ones you've been wearing all quarantine long.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love these pants! They are so comfortable and the perfect lightweight pants for spring and fall. The waist fits perfectly. They are on the looser side in my legs, which I like. They are casual and comfy enough to lounge in at home but can be dressed up enough to wear to work (I work in a casual setting). I want to live in these pants; they're so comfortable and versatile." —Laurel

    Price: $39.99+ (originally $89; available in sizes 0–12 petite, 00–16 regular, 4–16 tall, and in two colors)

    10. A useful utility backpack to hold all your essentials, including your laptop and multiple water bottles, and ward off rain at the same time.

    model wearing the lightweight backpack

    Promising review: "This is the perfect mid-size, lightweight backpack that I've been searching for! I bought it for hiking and carrying a small amount of camera gear (which it's ideal for) but have ended up using it as a work bag as well. I'm a fan of pockets in my bags and this has a good amount without being so overwhelming that I forget where I put things :-)." —Kate

    Price: $94.99 (originally $138)

    11. A water-resistant bucket hat for sun protection while you're hiking, climbing, and exploring the great outdoors.

    the green hat

    Promising review: "This is a cute version of a bucket hat. The string is a bright orange, which adds some pop and style. It might be a bit heavy or warm, which is probably attributed to the water resistance, but it looks super cute on. The brim waves a bit to be a little more feminine." —runnermomofthree

    Price: $34.99 (originally $48)

    12. A breathable crop top perf for everyday fits.


    Promising review: "I was very surprised at how good it looked. It looks very polished with a number of things I have. The material is nice and cool. I definitely will order another color." —annc

    Price: $39.99+ (originally $79; available in sizes XXS—XL, and five colors)

    13. An Earth Day graphic tee to champion the planet and the environment.


    Promising review: "Love this shirt! It's sooo comfy, breathable, and the true meaning is absolutely perfect. Even after wash, it has held its softness. I want to buy more for keepsake!" —Gensif

    Price: $19.99 (originally $49.99, available in sizes XXS—XL, and four colors)

    14. A cozy long wrap so you can wrap yourself in it when you have some hot chocolate while watching the leaves fall.

    model in gray version

    Promising review: "I immediately put it on after I opened the package just to try it on and ended up wearing it the rest of the evening. That's how great it is. Cozy, comfortable, and the perfect weight. Feels substantial but not heavy or hot at all. I think the fit is true to size. The length is quite long (just past my knees) but not sloppy. I plan on wearing it in my business casual office as a coverup for sundresses." —Carlotta

    Price: $71.99 (originally $89; available in sizes XXS—XL and three colors)

    15. A cute cropped wrap tee that'll caress your skin with its softness!


    Promising review: "This top is so adorable, fits well, and is such a great color!" —Hanna

    Price: $43.99 (originally $54; available in sizes XXS—XL and three colors)

    16. A cropped hoodie sweatshirt to throw on when the chill gets to you.


    Promising review: "This hoodie is perfect for throwing on after a workout, in AC, and in the evenings. It's soft, washes well, and goes with everything." —MN Lucy

    Price: $39.99+ (originally $79; available in sizes XS–L petite, XXS–M regular, 1X–3X plus, and six colors)

    17. A stylish cropped denim jacket with a twist — it has a removable inner vest and stretchy softness that reviewers love instead of that coarse stiffness.


    Promising review: "I have finally found the forever denim jacket I've been looking for! I wanted a light wash with pockets inside and out. This one even has zip pockets on the hips and a wide inside pocket for your phone. It's super comfortable with stretch, which was a must for me. I also wanted it a little cropped so this is perfect! I think the fit is perfect for layering over camis or lightweight long sleeve tops. I'm not too fond of the inner vest but am glad it's removable. I'm so happy I got this!" —ElizaAnn

    Price: $66.99 (originally $178; available in XS–XL)

    18. These colorblock shorts so your legs can breathe.

    the shorts

    Promising review: "Love these shorts. So comfortable. These were perfect! I love these, especially on my longer runs. I don't get overheated when wearing these." —HappyDoc

    Price: $39.99 (originally $59; available in sizes 0—16 and two colors)

    19. A pair of fashionable linen shorts reviewers love for their lightness and 4-inch length!


    Promising review: "I bought a pair of these in gray and liked them so much got another pair in navy (also gifted a pair to a friend). They are lightweight and great for hot days. The wide waistband is is very comfortable. They don't stretch which is only an issue when pulling them on. I don't mind that linen wrinkles." —Lisa

    Price: $40.99+ (originally $59, available in sizes 0—16)

    20. These shorts so flowy they could almost be mistaken for a skirt so you kind of get the best of both worlds!


    Promising review: "They're so soft and comfy. I would pair them with a nicer knit top and it could almost look like a romper. Or just with a cropped T-shirt for a more casual look. They're flowy, almost skirt-like so they dress up nicely. The pockets are generous and very stretchy; while my iPhone would fit in it, it would weigh it down. Look forward to wearing these. I hope Athleta makes them in some new colors and prints." —KCaps319

    Price: $39.99 (originally $49.99; available in sizes XXS—XL and also in black)

    21. A classic V-neck dress comfortable enough for everyday wear and dressy enough for business-y matters.

    the dress in green heather

    Promising review: "I have been a big fan of Santorini dresses. Soft material and an easy, casual style for travel. Also can be dressed up with dressy sling backs and a short cardigan for a professional business casual outfit. So happy to see the V-neck style return." —EmeraldSparkle

    Price: $39.97+ (originally $90; available in sizes XXS—XL and also in blue)

    22. A pair of bikini bottoms to reach for when it comes time for water sports.

    the bottoms

    Promising review: "Great medium coverage for those of us who don't want our business hanging out, but aren't ready to embrace the high-waisted bottom trend. Comfortable and cool, stays in place, even going off the diving board. True to size." —MzPenny

    Price: $14.99 (originally $49; available in sizes S—XL)

    23. A twist tank to take your tank styling up a notch and look like you put in effort.

    the twist tank

    Promising review: "Lightweight and super soft! This makes a great workout tank!" —Star
