    1. A pack of hair clips so you can try out the trend at a not-too-high price point. I'm currently into clips not only for the style, but to at least *attempt* to grow out my bangs. Keep me in your thoughts.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Kind of shocked by how amazing these are honestly. They don’t pull my hair, and I've worn them all the time for the last month and yet they’ve held up super well. I have already thick hair with extensions in and they hold all my hair without issue." —Mark & Wendy Bidstrup

    Get a set of 10 from Amazon for $8.99.

    2. A metallic accordion midi-skirt to make any occasion you wear it to a party. Running to the store? It's an errand party! Depositing checks? It's a money party! Twirl it out!

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful skirt; it looks just like in the product photos. The fabric actually feels very luxurious, not thin as you might expect from the price. It was a tremendous bargain at the price I paid. I absolutely love it!" —DoctorG

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes XS–XL and 15 colors).

    3. Chunky Chelsea boot heels to make any outfit a little bit more punk. The platform also lets you take advantage of a higher heel without the pain of a classic style.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Beautiful shoe for a gorgeous price! I've had them for a week now, and I've worn them to work everyday (8–10 hours with significant walking around). I have no blisters, and the only discomfort I have is in my calves because I'm not used to wearing heels every day. I even bike to and from work (two miles each way) and I've had no problems. I have no arches so I have Dr. Scholls orthotics which fit perfectly, and I highly recommend the combo for anyone who plans on wearing these all day every day like me." —Amazon Customer

    Get them on Amazon for $22.73+ (available in sizes 5.5–11 and 10 colors).

    4. A pair of suede over-the-knee boots that's make you feel a little more powerful just by sliding them on. Who wears tall boots? Absolute bosses, that's who.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love these boots! I have been needing a pair for so long to go with my winter skirts. They look so fab and fit great. I bought a half size larger than my typical size so I could wear thicker socks. I have gotten them a little dirty, but they clean easily (just dusting them off with my hand). The heel is high enough to look cute, but short enough to be worn for a more casual occasion. I have worn mine out to a nice dinner, as well to a college football tailgate, so they are durable in both kinds of terrain. I have received so many compliments when wearing these! Essential to any woman's wardrobe!" —Ramsey

    Get them from Amazon for $49.99 (available in sizes 6–11, including wide-calf sizes, and six colors).

    5. An open-front shaggy jacket for adding some ~chill California vibes~ to your wardrobe. Throw this on and *voila,* you're an influencer.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $25.98+ (available in sizes S–XL and six colors).

    6. Fluide Universal Gloss to take your look to a place that's ~out of this world~. Give your eyes, cheeks, lips — wherever! — an iridescent shimmer worthy of approximately 5,000 selfies.

    Fluide

    The gloss is vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, anbd phthalate-free. I have it and use it all the time when I want something just a liiiitle bit extra.

    Get it from Fluide for $15 (available in three colors).

    7. A printed pleated skirt that comes in a stunning *29* fun patterns, practically guaranteeing there's one that speaks to you.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I purchased the NYC pattern skirt as well as the pink rose pattern, and they both look exactly as pictured. I was actually surprised at how vivid and saturated the colors were when I opened the package! Very nicely sewn and quality material — I genuinely believe these will last a long time, which is important to me. I have already worn the rose print skirt about two times now, and have received a lot of compliments on it. I 100% recommend these to gals who love the retro and pin-up looks! These will be a staple for your closet!" —Emily S.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXXL and 45 colors and patterns).

    9. A moth mini dress that not only lets you look cool as hell, but also helps to scare off any of your natural predators such as bats, birds, and lizards.

    Fashion Brand Company

    To put it simply, I love Fashion Brand Company with all my heart. I have SO many pieces from them that make me feel cool and funny and weird and stylish all at once. I IMPLORE you to check out all of their offerings!

    Get it from Fashion Brand Company for $135 (available in sizes XXS–5XL).

    10. A pair of fishnet stockings perfect for throwing on under ripped jeans, with a crop top, or tbh under anything to make it a little more extra.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These tights give the outfit an extra edge. I love how well they hug the legs so even if you’re petite, they will still fit nicely. The waist is kind of high, but you can easily tuck it underneath your pants and it won’t show. I highly recommend and would likely buy them again." —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99 (available in one size and 10 styles and packs).

    11. Fenty Beauty's Gloss Bomb so your lips can make like Rihanna and shine bright like a diamond. All three shades look killer on all skin tones, and it's formulated with shea butter, leaving your lips feeling hydrated instead of sticky.

    Sephora

    I have this lipgloss, and it is EVERYTHING TO ME. Rest in peace, all my matte lipsticks, I'm a glossy siren now.

    Promising review: "This is the best lip gloss ever! I am not a fan of glosses, but this stuff is amazing. I had to try it because of all the amazing reviews and I’m so glad I did. It’s not sticky at all, and it’s the prettiest pink with the perfect little amount of shimmer. I have actually replaced my matte lipsticks with this most days now." —jzt1

    Get it from Sephora for $18 (available in three colors).

    12. Lace-back super-flare jeans for making the most of this Aquarius season. The super soft denim keeps the dramatic cut comfortable and wearable, so don't be surprised when these become your go-to pants.

    Free People

    I have these pants, and I LOVE THEM. I can't believe I'm saying this, but they're cozy. And I mean, I guess I'm biased, but I think I look really cool in them.

    Get them from Free People for $98 (available in sizes 24–35 and six washes).

    13. A vintage-inspired dress so you can channel Mad Men fave Joan Holloway's perfect style, wit, and fierceness in the modern day.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "If you are looking for an elegant, classic dress, look no further! It is unlined, so you might want to wear Spanx or similar nylons, but the material is not too thin. It has a nice stretch to it and is quite figure-flattering. It reminds me of something the Duchess of Cambridge or a first-lady would wear. Certainly looks much more expensive than it is. Even the belt seems quite well made. I ordered the green and have received many compliments on it." —Lindsay

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S–XXXL and 16 colors).

    14. A Rodarte x Universal Standard asymmetrical dress that with its tie detailing, asymmetrical hem, and dipping neckline, is a strong look all by itself. No need to look for the perfect pairings, this dress is a throw-on-go-out wonder.

    instagram.com

    Get it from Universal Standard for $200 (available in sizes 00–40 and three colors).

    15. A wool beret for adding a ~French twist~ to any ensemble (I hope you read "ensemble" in a heavy French accent, as intended).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This beret is exactly what I was looking for! It is perfect for the winter months and is true to color. The wool is thick and well-made, and the hat stretches to fit a variety of head sizes. I have been wearing mine quite a lot now and always get compliments on it! The beret has also been holding up very well without any issues. It looks great styled with dresses and sweaters, as well as comfy and casual winter clothing. I highly recommend this beret to anyone looking to add something extra to their winter outfits!" —Rachael S

    Get it from Amazon for $11.74.

    16. Unique gold face earrings to show everyone that you're artistic in your use of accessories. They're also a great excuse to talk about Golden Face, Jim Halpert's starring role in Threat Level Midnight.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "In reality, they are even better than on the picture. Not flimsy and not cheap looking at all! Bought them as a present for my friend's teenage daughter. After trying them on, I immediately ordered another pair for myself. Arrived nicely packaged. The price doesn't suck either!" —sadwizard

    Get them from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two styles).

    17. Some tie dye leggings so your go-to errands outfit isn't snore-worthy. Time to retire the "groutfit" and look alive!

    Athleta

    Get them from Athleta for $98 (available in sizes XXS–3X, as well as tall and petite sizes, as well as two colors).

    18. A cropped ballon-sleeve sweater that will remind you of the adorable balloon house in Up. Oh god...now I'm thinking about the opening scene. Oh no...NOW I'M CRYING!

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was worried this would be pretty small since it's one size, but I normally wear an XL and it's still oversized on me. It is a little see through, so I need to wear something underneath, but it's surprisingly warm still. I was looking for an oversized cropped sweater and this is exactly what I wanted! Shipping was really fast too!" —Morgan Jade Bailey

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in one size (fits 0–10) and eight colors).

    19. A Stila Stay All Day liquid eyeliner pen to keep your eyeliner on *point* and pair your out-there looks with a perfect winged eye.

    instagram.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Stila Stay All Day liner is now a must have in my makeup bag. I love this formula — it applies smoothly and dries quickly. The color is an intense black. I apply at 5 a.m. everyday, and when I go to take it off after 8 p.m. it still looks perfect. I also wear contacts and have sensitive eyes and was easily able to wear this product without irritation. It lasted me close to four or five months, and I use and I use it probably five days a week." —Michelle N

    Get it from Amazon for $22 (available in 10 colors).

    Read more about its intense staying power in "Stila Makes The Best Liquid Eyeliner, Fight Me." It also won best mid-priced liquid eyeliner on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    20. A rose gold watch, because nothing says ~*fashion*~ like wearing a gloriously shiny watch to finish your 'fit even though you have a phone that will 100% tell the time for you.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I never found a watch I liked to wear everyday. I bought this, and it's so slim, doesn't stick out, and leaves a nice profile. The face is actually big enough to read without it being intrusive. It helps when your eyes are not as good as they used to be. I also LOVE the band." —Doreen

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in three finishes).

    21. A corduroy puffer jacket to give any outfit a little bit of a retro flair while still keeping you warm as can be. We love a fun *and* functional piece.

    UpWest, instagram.com

    ^That's me on the right, lovin' this jacket! I was expecting to look cute but be a lil' cold, but NOPE! This is one of the warmest coats I own. I get compliments on it every time I wear it and cannot recommend enough!

    Get it from UpWest for $118 (originally $148, available in sizes XS–XL and two colors).

    22. An adjustable fedora, because LISTEN — fedoras can be cool. The wide-brim and thin belt elevate this fedora from "weird guy in a ska band" to "fashionista on the go," I promise.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love my hats!! I bought two of them, a black and a brown, and they are just adorable. They fit perfectly and are even adjustable!! They have a cord on the inside to adjust if it's too large. I think they're perfect and they're everything I was expecting and then some!! Wish I could afford one in every color!" —Darlene E.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.45 (available in 16 colors).

    23. A white cowbow-esque heeled boot that puts the perfect fashion-forward touch on almost any outfit. I have these, so let me just scream at you for a second: THESE ARE ONE OF THE MOST COMFORTABLE SHOES I OWN!

    Vionic

    I am also wearing these shoes in the right-hand picture in number 21!

    Promising review: "Vionics are the only shoe that I can wear for my foot condition. I have had expensive medical inserts made, have tried so many other brands, and then I found Vionics. This is the first shoe that I found to work for my foot. The boot is stylish and super comfortable. Highly recommend." —Catherine

    Get them from Vionic for $169.95 (available in sizes 5–12 and three colors).

    24. A floral embroidered dress with a sheer overlay and stunning two lengths. Pair with some floral perfume and people might think you're a literal garden.

    amazon.com

    Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available sizes XS–XXL and three colors).

    25. An oversized blazer because office-wear doesn't have to be boring. A wide lapel and cinched waist bring a much-needed update to the classic blazer.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this jacket!!!! You have to see the fabric to appreciate just how nice it is — it looks and feels luxurious. Has a lot of

    give for when you move your arms. Just BEAUTIFUL! Use the sizing chart." —cyndilouwho

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in sizes 2–10 and six colors).

    26. Benefit Lovetint cheek and lip stain, which will give your everyday makeup a little more pizazz. Give your look some life with one all-purpose, sheer-yet-buildable formula.

    Sephora

    I love this product! If you're down to clown in that you love a bold cheek look, this product is absolutely for you! I like to build it up with two layers on the lips and sheer it out on the face. And "stain" is right, it truly stays on all day!

    Promising review: "This is one of the best stains I've ever used. It has great color control. The more layers applied the intensity of the red increases. You can have a subtle or dramatic look. Doesn't dry the skin or lips. Looks fabulous under a lip gloss without losing the color. Application can last hours." —Shirlz70

    Get it from Sephora for $18.

    27. Patterned mesh socks that, if I'm being completely ~transparent~, will be the coolest accessory you own. Your gray boot socks could never.

    Amazon

    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

    Get them from Amazon for $10.99 (available in 17 patterns).

    28. A patterned maxi skirt — wow my legs feel freer just by *looking* at a photo of this skirt. This is your key to an outfit that's equally comfortable and cool.

    Anthropologie

    Get it from Anthropologie for $158 (available in sizes 00–16 and 1X–3X, as well as petite sizes).

    29. A pack of velvet hair scrunchies to use in your hair or just keep stacked on your wrist from now until the end of time.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have to say that I just about jumped for joy when scrunchies came back in style. I have super slippery hair (straight and healthy, so nothing stays in place). I opted for velvet over satin to help combat this and it worked! They stay in well, keep their shape, and look lovely. What a fantastic value!" —honeybee fairy

    Get a 10-pack from Amazon for $8.99.

    30. A mesh polka-dot top with ruched sleeves that certainly is a more statement-making piece than your go-to mock-neck tee. Dare I say, a bold upgrade.

    Ashely Stewart

    Get it from Ashley Stewart for $29.50 (available in sizes 10–32 and two colors).

    31. A literal leopard-print jumpsuit so you can take a little walk on the ~wild side~ — and a spin and a kick and a little dance while you're at it, since you're in a jumpsuit.

    ModCloth

    Promising review: "I love love love this jumpsuit. It is very elegant yet comfortable. I always get compliments when I wear it." —Christina

    Get it from ModCloth for $89 (available in sizes XXS–4X).

    32. A pair of faux leather pants, because it's never too late to become That Kind of Person. Listen, leather pants are a STATEMENT and one that I tbh like to make, sue me.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $89 (available in sizes 0–16).

    Have fun unveiling your strong looks, bbs!
