    1. A pair of Comme Des Garcons x Converse Chuck Taylor hidden heart high tops I've been seeing ~everywhere~ lately, because they're got everything you love about Chucks but they're even more adorable.

    The sneakers in white with a red heart on them

    I've seriously seen every kind of person sporting these cute kicks from off-duty celebs to yoga moms and skater punks. Join the party!

    Despite the multi-gender sizing, Nordstrom still suggests those going by women's sizing go up a half size.

    5-star reviews: 484

    Promising review: "This shoe is just like any other Converse. Comfortable, reliable, stylish, versatile and easily your own over time. With the additional collaboration with CDG, the value on this increases even more. People who know, know. When you see the heart on the side, you’re just in a different state of being when walking with your heart on your foot. Is that how the saying goes? In other words, get this pair of shoes. Multiple times if you can afford it. It’s timeless and will work with nearly any outfit." —Bustinbieber

    Price: $150 (available in men's 6/women's 8-men's 12/women's 14 and two colors)

    Looking for low-tops? They've got 257 5-star reviews and are available here.

    2. A Chanel ultra-wear lip color for candy-coated lusciousness that'll last you all day and then some. Coffee? Mealtime? Mid-day make out sesh? It's got you covered.

    The lip color in Sweet Berry, looking glossy and immaculate

    I don't want to ~gloss over~ how durable this one is — and neither did 5-star reviewers, 43% of whom praise it for lasting "all day."

    5-star reviews: 231

    Promising review: "I own several colors of this product. There is absolutely nothing like this! The lip color goes on perfect. You might think it is a little drying, but as soon as you put on the gloss, your lips are good to go. This truly lasts all day. I doesn't come off on glasses or coffee cups, and I can kiss my grandkids without leaving lipstick all over their adorable faces. I have tried some other products and nothing is as good as this. Yes, it might be a little expensive, but it is SO WORTH IT!" —GirlGirltt

    Price: $40 (available in 24 colors)

    3. A Kiehl's Ultimate Strength hand salve folks rave over because it really works on dry skin and eczema. Literally hundreds of reviewers have sworn it is neither too thick or too greasy.

    The just-right consistency is a big selling point, mentioned in 41% of 5-star reviews.

    5-star reviews: 447

    Promising review: "Working as a nurse, my hands are absolutely ruined. Constant washing and glove wearing dries them out. I was after a simple hand cream that does what it says with no fancy packaging and no offensive potent smell. This one moisturizes hands thoroughly without leaving a greasy residue behind." —Katrina9494

    Price: $16+ (available in three sizes)

    4. A pair of Adidas Trio21 track pants with a tapered leg and zippered cuffs that my partner bought last month and I immediately "borrowed" and have no intention of returning because they're literally the best sweatpants I've ever come across.

    I'm actually wearing them right now.

    5-star reviews: 264

    Promising review: "Great Adidas pants and the color is simply awesome. Love the fit and the new design." —Raffa_fit

    Price: $45 (available in men's sizes XS-XXL and three colors)

    5. A pair of Nike Air Max 270 sneakers with a stretchy sock-like fit that's comfy as heck.

    The black and white sneakers

    There's some debate out there about the sizing. Most folks say order a half size up, but Air Max superfans say advise ordering a full size up from what you'd usually get in this line. Order with confidence and remember that Nordstrom has an awesome return and exchange policy.

    5-star reviews: 367

    Promising review: "I get compliments every time I wear these out! They are comfortable and fresh (stylish). Best purchase I have made in a while! They are seriously so great and if you are thinking about getting them, this is your sign to get them!" —Nordstromislife714

    Price: $150 (available in women's sizes 5-12 and two colors)

    These sneaks are also available in women's sizes in black-on-black and white-on-white at a separate URL. Snatch them up here. Looking for the same shoe with slightly butcher styling, in men's sizes? You can find those here.

    6. A Little America backpack from Herschel Supply Co. made with an extra-durable polyester fabric to stand up to whatever your commute throws at you (snow, rain, cliché passing taxi mud splashes — you name it). It's got a top carry handle, magnetic flap toggles with a drawstring closure, and a laptop compartment good for computers up to 15 inches.

    The backpack in gray

    5-star reviews: 237

    Promising review: "I bought this for my darling spouse to use for commuting to work on the subway. It's spacious enough for them to carry a laptop, lunch, and a change of clothes for the gym, and probably a few other items. The buckles are are actually magnetic snaps, which is nice for a quick opening. The pattern on the inside is cute as well!" —Dmoore1800

    Price: $110 (available in five colors)

    7. A woodsy Le Labo Santal 33 eau de parfum that's pretty much Nick Offerman in a bottle.

    The perfume bottle and its box

    5-star reviews: 260

    Promising review: "Santal 33 by Le Labo is a stunner on me. I honestly can't believe there are 33 ingredients in this composition because all I get is sandalwood and iris. I'm by no means complaining. First whiff reveals sandalwood in its purest form. When I spray it on me it is extremely woody, almost sharp. Within seconds the wood softens. This wood is warm and dry and has practically no weight — sort of like fresh sawdust shavings. As it develops on my skin the sandalwood always stays in the forefront, but soon the iris makes her appearance. The iris on me is eloquent, soft as a whisper and very purple. This never becomes a true floral scent on me. It remains woodsy and mysterious. As the perfume dries down it gets just the slightest bit sweeter, almost like a violet candy. I must spray with a light hand and still it lasts forever on my skin. I get a solid 8-12 hours of enjoyment and it lasts even longer in my hair. This is just gorgeous and I'm so excited to own it!" —Archnesweave

    Price: $83+ (available in three sizes)

    8. A two-step, rose-scented, deeply hydrating sleeping mask for dewy skin that'll have you doing the do-si-do the next morning.

    The brown one is a hydrating gel you let sink in before applying the white cream mask to hydrate for 24 hours. It's paraben-, sulfate-, and phthalate-free.

    5-star reviews: 944

    Promising review: "OMG, this product is amazing. Your skin just drinks it in and in the morning your face is smooth and soft. A definite buy!" —Chani

    Price: $28+ (available in two sizes)

    9. A pair of the legendary Uggs Ascot slippers to make your tired toesies feel like they're floating in a shearling cloud. Also, they've got an indoor-outdoor rubber sole perfect for everything your day's gonna throw at you, from walking between your home office and the bathroom to maybe going outside (no pressure).

    The black suede slippers with a cream-covered shearling lining

    5-star reivews: 2,667

    Promising review: "I love Uggs and love wearing them around the house and at work. I’m a really big slipper person and go for comfort before fashion, except I actually get both fashion and comfort with these. They hold up great — I still have a pair from 2012 in mint condition." —Slipperman

    Price: $109.95+ (available in men's sizes 7-18 and six colors)

    Scared of suede? Want something a little more polished (literally)? Check out the leather version with 2,724 5-star reviews here.

    A model wearing the leggings in Grey Shade

    5-star reviews: 446

    Promising review: "Zella legging versus Alo yoga lounge legging: both the fabrics are are similar polyester and spandex composition, and both are stretchy and soft. The shorter length and pockets design are the best! Love this one!" —Ann0514

    Price: $65 (available in women's sizes XXS-XXL and three colors)

    11. A silicone spatula that's also a spoon and safe for nonstick cookware, so you can make pan gravy without destroying your teflon.

    The cooking tool in Slate

    5-star reviews: 253

    Promising review: "I got rid of all my cooking spoons after this purchase. Wow. It really is a perfect combo of spoon and spatula. I bought another one for when I'm cooking multiple dishes at the same time." —Jzmama

    Price: $12.95 (available in four colors)

    12. A pair of Adidas Cloudfoam slides for easy-off/easy-on wear and that are sure to be your next all-the-time shoes for after you've kicked off your work duds.

    The sandal in Grey/Black/Grey

    Order down if you're between sizes.

    5-star reviews: 3,278

    5-star reviews: 2,334

    Promising review: "I bought this perfume based off good reviews even though I had never smelled it. I fell in love with the smell immediately. It lasts a long time and is not too strong. It has a sweet smell to it. Definitely recommended!" —Sammc13

    Price: $76+ (available in four sizes)

    14. A pair of 58-mm Ray-Ban aviators to make you feel like Tom Cruise in Top Gun.

    the sunglasses in grey/gold mirror

    Does anyone else think the volleyball scene is actually hilarious?

    5-star reviews: 243

    5-star reviews: "These glasses are so classic. I love them for the summer; they look great on me and fit my face perfectly. I get so many compliments on them on a daily basis." —NishaMakeipLuva

    Price: $154 (available in six color combinations)

    1986 was a long time ago, so these frames are updated versions of the classics in cool new color combinations. Looking for the EXACT gold and green ones Maverick wore? Head over here.

    15. A Tory Burch nylon tote with interior zip pockets and snap gussets that's a flashier alternative to the Longchamp Le Pilage and that reviewers love to use for going to-and-from work. It'll fit your laptop, lunch, and a change of shoes with room to spare.

    5-star reviews: 290

    Promising review: "Sleek, durable, professional. This is a great bag! I love it so much and will be carrying it all 2021." —ElegantPearl17

    Price: $198

    16. Or! A Tory Burch leather cross-body camera bag with gold hardware and a zip closure to keep just the essentials on you without having to watch your wallet, keys, and work ID tumble down through the subway platform gap as you jam yourself into an overcrowded J train.

    The camera bag in pebbled black leather with gold metal hardware

    And that's why all my purses have zip-closures now.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this little bag. It is literally the perfect size. First of all, my phone (iPhone X) fits in it. But I can also fit two key fobs, a small card wallet, asthma pump, tiny hand sanitizer, and AirPods, and the magnetic flap on the back is a bonus for quick access to smaller items like a credit card or ID. I plan on getting another one in a different color." —FairLadyJJ

    Price: $248 (available in two colors)

    17. Urban Decay All Nighter makeup setting spray, which reviewers rave over for making their cosmetics look better and last longer. Also, it was an Allure magazine Best of Beauty award-winner in 2020.

    The spray

    5-star reviews: 3,783

    Promising review: "This product is so good. All Nighter is my go-to setting spray. I love the way it sets my foundation and powder so it does not look powdery. My makeup looks fresh throughout the day. I even use it on my eyeshadow brush before applying to make the colors pop. Definitely on my holy grail list." —Missyslack

    Price: $15+ (available in two sizes)

    18. A pair of Brooks Ghost 13s with on-trend maximal cushioning, for those hard-to-please folks like myself who've tried everything and were just about ready to give up the search for a running shoe they actually like. And, great news if you've hard-to-fit feet: these are available in sizes up to13!

    The shoe in White/Pink/Black

    Me and my temperamental size 11s have made many a Fleet Feet salesperson exasperated with four-hour fitting sessions that end with me not finding a single shoe I could stand. Chase at the Asheville store, if you're reading this, I'm truly sorry and thanks for being a good sport because I'm buying these immediately.

    5-star reviews: 1,417

    Promising review: "I have probably bought and returned at least 25 pairs of running shoes before finding these. They are so comfortable! I have a very high arch and these are a perfect fit — finally!" —ESully

    Price: $130 (available in women's sizes 5-13 and 12 colors)

    Looking for men's sizing? Head over here for a pair with 596 5-star reviews.

    19. A pair of Peter Millar shorts reviewers say are perfect to take you from the 18th hole to the 19th.

    5-star reviews: 294

    Promising review: "They fit great and work well on the course and for a casual Florida night out." —Mark

    Price: $98 (available in men's sizes 30-42 and three colors)

    20. A perforated slip-on sneaker, because you think laces are so 2019 but you need something more secure than a clog.

    The shoe in Golden Rod Fabric

    5-star reviews: 493

    Promising review: "These shoes were instantly comfortable for me and I have incredibly sensitive feet and refuse to wear anything uncomfortable since I am on my feet 12 hours for work. They do squeak if you pivot quickly on a slick floor, but the comfort and color range is worth it. I plan on watching for sales and getting a couple more colors." —Katiekid

    Price: $83.95+ (available in women's sizes 36-41 and ten colors)

    21. A Wacoal lined full-coverage high-impact underwire sports bra for exceptionally comfortable support even if you're a larger cup size.

    A model wears the bra in black

    As a larger-busted person, I can tell you it's almost impossible to find a high-impact sports bra that fits and/or doesn't lead to back pain and breathing problems. Wacoal is basically synonymous with easy wearing and the reviews for this one are stellar. Try it! It runs a little small, so order a size up.

    5-star reviews: 1,671

    Promising review: "On a 5K run, this bra supported me like I didn't know a bra could. It was awesome. The underwire is thorough. It's very wide and comes up high enough to get all of your breast tissue (or mine in this case). And the straps, while they are slightly wider than I prefer, really help keep everything in place, and I absolutely loved that. The band is wide and strong with four hook-and-eyes for closure, so it stays where you put it!" —Wificus

    Price: $68 (available in sizes 32C-42DDD)

    22. A pair of high-wasted ankle-length skinny pants that also come in a wide range of standard and petite sizes so more folks can finally enjoy a cropped inseam that's right for them.

    A model wears the pants in Shadow

    I had a close friend in college who was 4'10" and I can't tell you how many weekends we spent trying to find them ankle-length pants that ~actually~ went to their ankles.

    Some people think these run a little big, so if you're between sizes opt to go down.

    5-star reviews: 332

    Promising review: "I’m only 5’4”, so when I see a short cut pant (above ankle) on a model, I'm ecstatic because I know I can order the pant without having to hem it. And even as someone who petite sizes don’t usually fit properly, these fit perfect and comfy with stretch!" —Anklecutgreatforpetites

    Price: $68 (available in standard and petite sizes from 00/00P-18/18P and eight colors)

    23. And! A pair of Madewell high-rise skinny jeans available in petite, standard, tall, and plus sizes.

    A model wears the jeans

    5-star reviews: 134

    Promising review: "I prefer my jeans have a higher rise. The ten-inch rise on these jeans are perfect. They sit just below my belly button. The stretch in them is good and I can play with my kids and bend without issues. They keep their shape well and can wear them a few times before they need washing. In terms of sizing, I found these to be true to size. These are good addition to any wardrobe." —Mys17

    Price: $89.60+ (available in petite sizes 23P-33P, standard size 23-37, and tall sizes from 23-32)

    24. A pair of ubiquitous and eternally iconic Birkenstock Arizona sandals that come in an on-point rose gold to make even high-fashion honeys believe in the comfy freedom of open-toed, cork-soled bliss.

    The sandal in Copper Leather

    Reviewer consensus is to order up a half-size bigger than usual.

    Promising review: "I'm a huge fan of heels and fancy footwear, who's always been opposed to flip flops and slides. Recently I hurt my foot and was told I should invest in a pair of Birks. Well I caved, and let me tell you, I love them! I love them so much I want another pair. I made a complete180-degree turn, and now I'm a believer." —WedgeAficionado7

    Price: $134.95 (available in women's sizes 36-42 and three colors)

    25. A pair of Bose noise-cancelling headphones to work along with music without having to endure another afternoon of your roommate learning to play the banjo.

    A model wears the headphones while commuting

    5-star reviews: 522

    Promising review: "Amazing headphones! I purchased these for my spouse about a year ago and, having the wired Quiet Comfort 25 myself, I got headphone envy and wanted a wireless pair of my own. Noise cancelling settings are amazing for travel and the sound quality for music and phone calls is very impressive. So glad I got them!" —SABMILLER

    Price: $299 (available in two colors)

    26. A Champion pullover hoodie reviewers love because the knit is thick and it holds up great even after many washes.

    A model wears the sweatshirt in gold

    5-star reviews: 434

    Promising review: "Excellent product. I did not believe the hype until I bought it. Material is nice a thick. I love the sleeves, especially the wrist part that's super close to your skin. I loved it so much I bought my relative one. Also, it does not shrink or fade after wash." —Bootlover29

    Price: $60 (available in men's sizes XS-XL and eight colors)

    27. A face and under-eye concealer from Armani for matte coverage when you want something effective but full coverage is a little much.

    A model before applying the concealer / a model after applying the concealer, with an even complexion

    5-star reviews: 451

    Promising review: "Best overall concealer for the win! This lovely concealer has just the right consistency and formula to smooth/blur. It’s not full coverage, but I don’t want full coverage. This imparts a luminosity and soft focus on the skin, which is what I want. Pricey, but it’s a staple in my makeup kit. " —Loralar

    Price: $38 (available in 20 shades)
