    Promising review: “Ever since I got this blazer I’ve been wearing it every day for fall weather. It’s just the right thickness for a lightweight coat. The quality is great and price is affordable, so you really can’t go wrong in getting this. The color is more brownish than black. The length is just above the knee. It has nice deep pockets, so this is perfect for wearing from day to night!.” —Maria Monti 

    Get it from Amazon for $41.99 (available in sizes XS–L and two colors).

    6. A statement-making serpent necklace you can also wear as a bracelet, arm cuff, or even a belt.


    Promising review: “I love this piece. I originally bought this and a snake choker so I could decide, in person, what went best with my outfit. By chance, my daughter entered the room and put it around my waist. WOW! I instantly felt like it had to be worn that way. This piece, however, is quite versatile. It can be worn as a long chain, a choker, an arm cuff, a back drop necklace, and a belt. I love snake jewelry. But I'm not sure how I lived without this piece.” —Gizzette

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in two colors).

    7. A polka dot V-neck dress with a ruffle hem and tons of attitude you'll rock all season long.


    Promising review: “I’m obsessed with this dress! I purchased it to wear for a wedding and got many compliments. The material is great and the fit was perfect. The color is a tad darker in person. But I expected it to be and it was exactly what I wanted!” —Sabrina Smith 

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and three colors).

    8. A precious set of dinosaur pins for dressing up your denim jacket, bag, or even your go-to cap.


    The set includes six pins.


Promising review: “I bought this set of six pins as a gift for my daughter. She is a collector of pins and is always on the lookout for fun new ones. She absolutely loves them. They are so cute and colorful. They are the perfect size for backpacks or purses. And the little T-Rex is as hilarious as it is fun and adorable! They are quality, too. They are a good weight of pins. They aren’t flimsy little plastic pieces but thicker enamel-type laquer color over metal with secure back closure pieces.” —Julie Richardson Small 

    Get them from Amazon for $9.89.

    9. A button-down shirtdress that’ll look cute with heels, sandals, or even sneakers.


    Promising review: "This dress is roomy and super cute! Held up well after washing and is cute with flats, sandals, or even converse sneakers! Belt it, tie on a cute scarf, or add a statement necklace. This dress is adorable. I bought the denim but will be going back for more colors!" —shopsonlinegal

    Get it from Walmart for $15.99 (available in sizes 0X–4X and four colors).

    10. A darling scarf — which you can also rock as a shawl — to keep you cozy and oh-so stylish, no matter where the day takes you.


    Promising review: “I love the colors. It isn’t a heavy material. It’s light enough to wear in the heat of Thailand to get into the temples. And it’s long enough to be used as a scarf, sarong, or headwrap.” —Vayola

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in 12 colors).

    11. A show-stopping neon orange Mission belt that’ll add a serious pop of color to any outfit.


    Promising review: “These guys make a high-quality, long lasting, handsome product. These belts continue to amaze me. I have several. They don't show wear after using them for a year or more. They look as new as the day I got them. The buckles just keep looking nice and doing their job. You can mix and match buckles and belts easily, giving you a lot of value.” —Crowe

    Get it from Amazon for $36.95 (available in sizes S–XL and four buckle colors).

    12. A Prince shirt that'll allow you to at least attempt to tap into a little bit of The Purple One’s amazingness.

    Get it from Hot Topic for $15.33 (available in sizes XS–3XL).

    13. A color-block satchel — with one slip pocket and one interior zipper pocket — to rock with basically any look.


    Promising review: “This is a great purse. It was larger than expected but not huge. It fits my wallet, phone, and makeup bag! I love the inside strip design. It’s so cute!” —Oaktree

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in 30 colors).

    14. A see-through shirt you can layer over a tank, bralette, or even another shirt for a standout OOTD.


    Reviewers suggest sizing up at least one size because it runs small.

    Promising review: “This is a high-quality top that fits well, is a good length and is perfect for going out. The material is soft and comfortable. And, so far, I can see no faults in this product.” —Ron Raup 

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and six colors).

    15. A backless bodysuit you can wear with jeans or shorts for a showstopping look.


    Promising review: “This fabric is doubled, so it's not sheer, at all. There is no cup support. But I'm not sure what bodysuits even have that! The red is a deep, rich red. The straps are comfortable, and it's easy to put on!” —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes XS–L and in 19 colors).

    16. A pair of fishnet tights that’ll be the perfect addition to your favorite skirt or distressed denim.


    Promising review: "I get so many compliments on these tights whenever I wear them. They have also yet to snag (I have a dog who likes to jump up on me) and I've washed them several times and they still hold together. I do always line dry them. I think they're super cute fishnets and super affordable." —Kelly Tadge

    Get them from Amazon 

for $14.99 (available in a four pack, one size, and four colors).

    17. A lantern sleeve sweater that'll bring some serious drama to any look.


    Promising review: "Love this sweater! It was as described. Love the sleeves and the red color. I received many compliments on it. Looks more expensive than it was." —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in sizes S–XL and three colors).

    18. A faux-leather handbag with a cute tassel charm, a removable strap, and numerous pockets to hold all of your stuff.


    The bag features an optional carrying strap.

    Promising review: “This bag is beautiful! It’s a perfect size, and it also came with a small scented satchet to make the purse smell so good! The material inside and out is durable and it has quite a lovely feel. I definitely recommend it.” —Adriana Taylor

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in five colors)

    19. A colorful off-the-shoulder sweatshirt you'll love forever.


    Promising review: "I love everything about this sweater, from the color to the oversized look. The sleeves are long, which I love as well. It's not a heavy sweater — it's lightweight and comfortable." —Jonique

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in sizes S–5XL and 12 colors).

    20. An ankle-strap pump with a chunky heel that'll instantly dress up any look.


    Promising review: “I wear a size 10 and I have wide feet, so I was hesitant to buy these shoes. But I was pleasantly surprised with them. I love the way these shoes fit so much that I ordered them in more colors. I normally don't like a chunky heel, but these are cute! They're nice for the price, and I like them.” —Lorena

    Get them from Amazon for $18.98+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in 13 colors).

    21. A pair of denim leggings to give you the look of a pair of jeans with tons of comfort while still looking put together.


    The leggings are machine-washable and feature front and back pockets.

    Promising review: “These fit amazingly well. They're jeggings, but they do have real front and back pockets and the perfect amount of stretch. They keep their shape and the rise is perfect. So far, they have not ridden down on me while sitting. I'm 6 feet and they actually are long! They cover well below my ankle. I'm ordering a couple more pairs.” —Stacey Fournier 

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes in 0 short–17 long).

    22. A gorgeous one-piece swimsuit with a funky print that'll have you shutting down the shore.


    Promising review: “I am in love with this swimsuit! I am a size 18 or 20 depending on the item and I ordered this in an 2XL. It fits perfectly, allows you to choose the level of appeal you want with the zipper, and the print is AMAZING. I feel like going to the pool right now just so someone can see me in it!” —Mrs. M

    Get it from Amazon for $3.89+ (available in sizes S–2XL and in four colors).

    23. An oversized sweater that’ll be as comfy as it is cute no matter what you pair with it.


    Promising review: “This is my new go-to sweater. It’s extremely comfortable and matches with everything. It’s cozy without being frumpy. I didn’t have to size up for a cozy, oversized fit. And it has the perfect amount of room in regular size.” —Melissa

Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and in seven colors).

    24. A fabulous leather backpack that can also be worn as a shoulder bag — which is a great price for such a versatile leather bag.


    The strap is detachable.

    Promising review: “This backpack is so cute, I love it! I'm always wary of buying anything leather online since some materials can look cheap or plastic-like. But this looks gorgeous in person. I own several Fossil leather bags and the material of this bag is on par with their quality. It has a good weight to it, even when empty. So I'm very happy! It fits a lot of things and the straps have one side that is similar to a seatbelt, so it's really comfortable to hold. I can't recommend it enough!” —Kathleen 

    Get it from Amazon for $53.99 (available in five colors).

    25. A versatile shirt with a cute suede pocket you can style at least EIGHT different ways, making for some amazing looks.

    Promising review: “I absolutely adore this T-shirt. It is amazingly soft. And the faux-suede pocket offered a nice texture contrast to my distressed denim jeans. I usually tuck my shirts into my jeans and slacks, and the length of the shirt wasn’t an issue, allowing me to do that with ease." —Treye Green

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in women's sizes S–2XL and 10 colors).
