    Promising review: "I just got my sweaters yesterday. They are not a heavy sweater material (which is exactly what I wanted because I often wear camisoles underneath.) You could easily pair this sweater with a blazer. I ordered it in extra large and would say it fits just as the models show. For a more fitted look, I would go with the large. I'm 5"9' and wear a size 12 (38D bra). I would definitely buy again." —Rubijulie

    Price: $24.20 (available in sizes XS-2XL and in 29 colors and prints)

    2. Some sterling silver pressed flower teardrop earrings that'll remind you of spring on the coldest day. These translucent pieces have real dried flowers grown in Taxco, Mexico, meaning each piece has a one-of-a-kind look.

    Promising review: "Bought a pair for my wife and upon receiving them I immediately re-ordered a second pair to give to my mother. They are awesome and both women get compliments on them when they wear them. The flowers look great in there, very very similar to what is pictured. The colors are super versatile and go with a lot of clothing. My wife doesn't wear a ton of dangly earrings — usually just studs, but these are perfectly sized. They aren't super huge and our infant doesn't grab them!" —Dan

    Price: $29+ (available in eight colors)

    3. A pair of relaxed-fit joggers, because why not look cute while you relax? Lounge on the couch with a T-shirt, or throw on a sweater to get takeout from your favorite cafe.


    Promising review: "These pants were better than expected. They fit like a glove and are the perfect thickness/thinness. The material can be dressed up or down. I’ll be buying more for sure! I’m tall and they are perfect (5’8")." —Roberta

    Price: $20.95 (available in seven colors and in sizes XS-2XL)

    4. A cutout, loose turtleneck sweater to bring a casual yet chic look to any outfit. It's classy and simple, meaning you'll wear it for years to come.

    Promising review: "I am really impressed with this sweater. It’s excellent quality and looks like it’s way more expensive than it was. I ordered the black and while I will have to wear a strapless bra with it, it’s totally worth it. It’s long enough to wear with leggings, it’s a very nice weight knit. A really nice sweater for the money." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $44.90 (available in two colors and in sizes 2XS-3X)

    5. A snakeskin buckle belt for an understated addition to your favorite pair of jeans. It'll add a polished finish to any winter look.

    Promising review: "This belt is absolutely beautiful. The rich coloring and shining buckle stands out and looks beautiful on." —sabea125

    Price: $19.90 (available in two colors and in sizes S/M and M/L)

    6. A gray pullover with side cutouts that's minimal enough to go with everything in your wardrobe, plus it's lightweight for easy layering.

    Promising review: "Love! I can't say enough about this brand. The material feels amazing against the skin. I work this on the 4th of July outside and still felt cool. Something about this fabric bend draws sweat away from my body. It's fantastic. My closest is starting to be taken over by these pieces. Will be purchasing many more." —Angelique

    Price: $28+ (available in three colors and prints and in sizes 1X-7X)

    7. An faux leather tote bag so you can stylishly keep all your essentials on you all the time.

    Promising review: "This purse makes an awesome, unique gift that is useful and stylish. I gave it as a gift and she loved it. My niece fell in love with it too and ordered one. It is very soft and leathery and easy to open wide to remove things. It closes well, too." —Mary Leon

    Price: $39.90 (available in four colors)

    8. An classic-fit turtleneck sweater to channel your inner Audrey Hepburn. It's comfy, soft and versatile enough to match all your moods.,

    Promising review: "I was so happy with this turtleneck, that I bought another! One in white and one in black. It fits well and is soft and not too tight around the neck, which is always an issue with turtlenecks. It is somewhat of a thin material, but is not see-through, unless you are very close up. It’s not warm enough on its own, but is thin and easy to wear under a coat or sweater." —Amelia Larson

    Price: $20.95 (available in 15 colors and in sizes XS-2XL)

    9. Some Amazon Essentials two-strap heeled sandals for a sophisticated addition to your favorite top and jeans or a dress. Its chunky heel will help you feel steadier than a stiletto.

    Promising review: "These shoes are classics. They can easily be dressed up or down and fit exactly right. The heel is just big enough to dress an outfit up but not add a ton of height. Very comfortable and true to size." — Brooke

    Price: $25 (available in two colors and in sizes 5-13)

    10. A tie-dye sweatshirt so you can add a bit of pattern to your lounge outfit.

    Promising review: "Love this! Has been one of my go to sweatshirts during quarantine. It is not too thick, and even though I’ve washed it a bunch of times it doesn’t have any of those little fuzzy balls." —Rebeca

    Price: $42.21+ (available in four colors and in sizes 2XS-3X)

    11. A pair of lace-up combat boots, because they're chic and they're comfortable — what else could you ask for? Plus they're breathable, and the side zipper makes them easy to slide on and off.

    Promising review: "These are basic shoes and they are very comfortable. These are fake leather, which I prefer. The lace is only for decoration. I'd suggest going up a size for better comfort, especially if you have wide feet. I'm normally a 7.5 and I purchased an 8. My feet get some amount of wiggle room. Would be too tight with thick socks though. I'm able to comfortably wear these all day, walking, moving, and lifting things." —Sai J.

    Price: $35 (available in two colors and sizes 5-13)

    12. A faux fur scarf to keep your neck warm. The cozy material won't itch your neck, and it's chic enough to elevate your look!

    Promising review: "I love this scarf. It’s soft and cozy but also looks sophisticated. I pair it with a black peacoat and it’s perfect. There's a strap on the inside of one side to hold the other side secure. Highly recommended." —svir

    Price: $29.90 (available in two colors)

    13. Some red lounge shorts that'll add some not-so-subtle character and color to every outfit. You can't go wrong with shorts this comfy!

    Promising review: "These are perfect comfy shorts. They fit well and look very nice. The waist is just right — not super tight like so many other elastic waist pants. And the price is right too." —KatieDid

    Price: $29.90 (available in four colors and in sizes 2XS-3XL)

    14. A hooded fleece sweatshirt with a full zip and split pocket. It's also got warmth-sealing ribbed cuffs for chilly mornings.,

    Promising review: "I got this hoodie for my husband. This hoodie is really soft and the color is nice and bright. A lot of hoodies I've bought are either too thin, too bulky, or a weird length. This one seems to be perfect, as my husband prefers a slim-fit hoodie that's still warm. I tried it on and it's actually a great unisex hoodie! Feels like it's of really good quality and will hold up for a while." —S.Z. Weiler

    Price: $11 (available in 36 colors and prints and in men's sizes XS-2XL)

    15. Or a fleece crewneck for adding some color to dreary winter days. The ribbed edges give understated detail and it's a great choice for the most casual of dressers.

    Promising review: "WOW, this is an amazing sweatshirt. It’s very soft, comfortable, and warm. The sleeves are slightly longer, so even after a wash they still cover the wrists. It’s slightly fitted so has a slimming look to it. And you can’t beat the price. I liked it so much, I got one in XL for when I want extra space, and one for my wife for because she loves soft, broken-in feeling sweatshirts for lounging." —Amazon reviewer

    Price: $15+ (available in 32 colors and prints and in men's sizes XS-2XL)

    16. A pair of leather moccasin slippers to keep your toes warm while you walk your dog. They're also comfy enough to wear around the house.

    Promising review: "These are exact replicas of the Uggs I'm replacing. The Uggs were $110 and these were about $25. Please note that these slippers, just like the Uggs, will fit VERY snug when you first get them. After about a week, they'll stretch and fit perfectly. Buy your normal size and let them stretch a little. If you get a size bigger, they'll stretch and become too big. Trust me on this." —JohnK2374

    Price: $23.40 (available in four colors and in men's sizes 8-14 and in four colors)

    17. A pom-pom knit hat and scarf set so your head and neck will stay warm while keeping your outfit cohesive. You can wear the hat cuffed or slouchy, depending on your vibe.

    Promising review: "This is exactly what I wanted. The scarf is the perfect length and width...not too long or too wide. It has some weight to it, so it keeps my neck and chest warm, without any added bulk. The hat looks nice on. I washed and dried both of these upon receiving them, according to the instructions. They came out looking nice afterward. Great value too for the price." —shopwise

    Price: $19 (available in four colors)

    18. A lightweight waffle robe that's soft, absorbent, and comfortable for an easy, breezy morning.

    Promising review: "This is the perfect robe! I wanted a nice robe to throw on after a shower without getting too hot and this robe is perfect. Super cozy, not too hot, and a perfect fit! I would say order your normal size but I sized up just so it could be bigger and more relaxed! Definitely recommend!" —Raven Clark

    Price: $21.95 (available in six colors and sizes XS-2XL)

    19. A lightweight, water-resistant puffer jacket to wear over your go-to winter outfit. Wear it with leggings to head to the grocery store or with jeans for an outdoor picnic.


    Promising review: "I bought this jacket for a trip to Scotland in early March. It was the perfect jacket — easy to pack, and surprisingly warm. The white was a nice slightly off-white that looked great with all of my outfits and it also stayed dry during the few rainy days we encountered. It was so nice not to have to lug a bulky jacket overseas." —Melissa Warren

    Price: $34.55+ (available in 13 colors and prints and in sizes XS-2XL)

    20. A pair of faux fur cottage slippers because slippers should always look this cute. Plus, they're open-toed so you don't have to worry about messing up your pedicure. #Priorities

    Reviewer's photo of their tan slippers

    Promising review: "Love these. They do run slightly large so size down if you don't love the oversized fit, but I think it adds to the comfiness. Love the colors too — this tan/neutral brown has been a staple of mine! I was concerned about them being slippery from the other reviews but the slip wore off after a day of wearing around the house!" —Mary

    Price: $39.90 (available in five colors and in sizes 5-12)

    21. A Goodthreads soft cotton crewneck sweater to add character to your wardrobe. It's comfy and can be dressed up or down depending on how you're feeling.


    Promising review: "This is my new favorite piece of clothing. I was skeptical at first but boy I was wrong! This thing is comfy as all get out, fits great and I love the design! Plus it keeps me warm on these cold Kansas winter days. 9.2 out of 10!" —Andrew Ericson

    Price: $16.49+ (available in 15 colors and in men's sizes XS-3XL regular and tall)
