2. A leather jacket to channel your inner badass. Tell me about it, stud.

Promising Review: "I LOVE this jacket!! I've had trouble with leather jackets in the past (most of them are too tight in the arms or shoulders for me, or too loose in the body, etc.), but this one is perfect! It has just enough stretch to be super comfortable, and it looks great! Worth every penny!!" —Moly7040

Get it from Nordstrom for $498 (two colors, 2XS–XL).

3. A pair of jeans with rips on the knees to show off your cool (without trying to look too cool) side.


4. A winter jacket to treat yourself to right now. Is it pricey? Yes. Is it worth every penny as it keeps you safe from the most chilling of Mother Nature's lowest temperatures? Absolutely.

Promising Review: "This coat is worth the money. I was looking for the warmest coat I could find to use while walking my dog and during cold weather tailgating. I am always freezing, and this coat keeps me warm!! It is long, and I love that." —MsRene

Get it from Nordstrom for $995 (five colors, sizes XS–L).

6. A distressed cable knit sweater for a rebellious take on a classic.

Promising Review: "If you are looking for a super oversized, comfy sweater, this is perfect for you. Very soft and well-made. Worth the splurge in my opinion. Some could probably wear this is a dress, but I tuck the front into my jeans and wear a belt, and it looks super cute." —lem5043

Get it from Free People for $168 (four colors, sizes XS–L).

7. A bomber jacket to pair with any outfit you choose in your pursuit of creating a more sleek and sassy style.

Promising Review: "Fits like a glove. I have broad shoulders and normally order a larger size so I can fit. I didn't have to with this. It was made for beautiful people like me!" —KlaudioKaylynn

Get it from Torrid for $48.67 (originally $64.90, sizes 00–6).


9. A velvet dress for anyone who, like me, is completely and utterly obsessed with the velvet trend and feels compelled to buy all things velv.

BTW, can we make "velv" the official nickname for velvet?

Promising Review: "When I buy cheap clothes from Amazon I usually end up sending 50% back, or even more. The quality is often not as anticipated. But this dress? I love. It's so cute and comfortable, and you can dress it up or down. The sleeves are slightly tight, but because they material is stretchy, it's not a problem." —Ellen

Get it from Amazon for $13.21+ (four colors, sizes S–XL).

10. A tunic featuring some pretty lace detailing at the bottom for a comfy and adorable style.

Promising Review: "This shirt is even cuter in person than it is in the pictures. It hangs just right, so that it's nice and loose, yet you still have a waist and do not look shapeless. The material is really great quality, super soft, thick, and comfortable. The lace is a beautiful touch on the bottom and looks really nice." —kenzied

Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (eight colors, sizes S–3XL).

11. A sheer dress that'll make you feel magical through all the seasons. Seriously, you can wear this whenever.


15. A sweater with ruffled sleeves you should definitely add to your jumper collection immediately.

Promising Review: "I never thought I would love a sweater that I bought at Target, but I honestly LOVE this. It is so soft, and a nice, medium weight. For the price, this is just too good to pass up." —FarmingInHeels

Get it from Target for $17.49 (two colors, sizes XS–2XL).


18. A basic long sleeve top to keep on-hand whenever you're getting dressed and thinking, "Dang, I could really use a simple, black long sleeve."

Promising Review: "SO comfortable, and just lovely to wear with leggings. I didn't feel like I was wearing a tent, and my rear was still covered while wearing it. Win, win! It said to hand wash but I don't have time for that, so I put it in a lingerie bag and washed it in cold water in the bag. Hung it to dry and it's perfect!" —J. T. Thomas

Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (29 colors, sizes S–3XL).


20. A fuzzy jumper that'll become your new BFF. This thing is so fluffy, you'll wanna die.

23. An off-the-shoulder top with a choker to give you two great trendy looks at one amazing price. What a steal, man.


31. A beanie for helping your head stay warm while looking hella trendy.

Promising Review: "What a great beanie! This fit as expected. It's thick and keeps my head warm on cold days. It's the same as other high-quality brands that are much more expensive." —Betty

Get it from Amazon for $8.95 (nine colors).


35. An oversized sweater to lounge around the house in (or strut in public with, making everyone else jealous).

Promising Review: "I love this sweater!!! It fits great. It's loose and super comfortable! Great with leggings or jeans." —Shana

Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (seven colors, sizes S–2XL).


39. A turtleneck sweater to keep your body (and neck) warm and *you* extra stylish. Win, win.

Promising Review: "After recently moving to a colder climate, I had to revamp my sweater collection. This is my new favorite sweater. It’s soft, warm, and comfortable. I have worn it twice after receiving it, and I have gotten many compliments!" —Savvy002

Get it from Nordstrom for $59 (five colors, sizes XS–XL).


40. A reversible coat that'll feel so cozy, you might never take it off. Just a warning.

Promising Review: "I never write reviews, but this coat deserves it. I am someone who does not do well in the cold at all, and this coat makes me feel like a superhero in the freezing temps. I 100% imagine this coat is what a hug from a polar bear would be like, and it isn't suffocating at all. If I had all the money in the world, I would make sure everyone on this planet had one. Everyone deserves this." —nataliejoy23

Get it from Urban Outfitters for $89 (two colors, sizes XS/S–M/L).

43. A tunic that'll look good with pretty much everything you own. Bonus: the ruffled sleeve ends give it a bit of a fun flair.

Promising Review: "You know that feeling when you put something on and it makes you feel good??? It’s what I call 'singing' to me, and this does it! Beautiful color, good fit, and flattering! Received tons of compliments! Want more colors!!!" —Jennelle Tranter Dohan

Get it from Amazon for $25+ (four colors, sizes XS–XL).


45. A button-up cardigan to wear as a sweater with a tank underneath, or you can just throw it on with your outfit when you get chilly.

Promising Review: "Just what I was looking for. Lightweight, cashmere sweater with buttons, pockets, and long enough to cover the hips. The sleeves are long, but easy to roll up." —astraycat

Get it from Amazon for $99 (seven colors, sizes XS–XL).

46. A flannel you can easily throw on any time of the year as a relaxed, but cute style.

Promising Review: "First of all, I am not a flannel shirt girl, but tried this on and it was soooo soft that I had to get it. I’ve since purchased four of these in various styles, and they have become my fave shirt." —Erin H

Get it from Target for $19.99 (six colors, sizes XS–2XL).
