    1. A pair of Xpand shoelaces that won't ever get untied and come in range of awesome colors to upgrade any pair of sneaks.


    Promising review: "I knew I was going to love these for casual everyday wear, but I never anticipated actually being able to use them in my running shoes. I like my laces tight for running and I just didn't think these would be able to stay put. I was wrong! I ran five miles and the laces were just as tight upon completion as they were when I started! I plan on replacing all my laces with these." —AA2017

    3. A sleek pair of sunglasses with skull detailing to protect your eyes from UV rays in style.


    Promising review: “I love these wonderful sunglasses! They are classy and edgy. I love the gold-colored skulls on the sides of the glasses and the matching gold sides. These glasses are extremely comfortable and fit well. The case is great to store them in so that I can keep them from getting scratched. It even comes with a sunglasses cleaning cloth. I love the cat-eye shape. They seem durable and well-made.” —Adam

    Get them from Amazon for $14.79.

    4. A comfy Calvin Klein bralette with racerback straps you can layer under a top or pair solo with jeans or shorts for a sporty look.


    Promising review: “This bra is completely amazing and incredibly cute! I'm a 34A but I got a medium, since I'm a little curvy. But it's absolutely perfect. I would recommend to anyone who wants a cute and comfy bra.” —Amazon Customer 

    Get it from Amazon for $12.65+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 33 colors)

    5. A fierce pleated skirt to create the flyest OOTD ever.


    Promising review: “I love this skirt. It fits perfectly. Some reviews said to order one size up. But I am petite at 5’0” and 100 lbs. I ordered a small and it is a perfect fit for me. It is made of good material and the pleats are great. It’s also the perfect length. It’s not too short but also not at all too long, which is a problem I tend to have with skirts. I would buy it again!” —Mimi

    Get it from Amazon for $16.69+ (available in sizes 23.5-34 and 35 colors).

    6. A wide-brim fedora that'll be a trendy way to block the sun out of your eyes.


    Promising review: “I’ve never worn hats like this before and decided to purchase this one to go with my outfits for having my photos taken. And omg I'm totally obsessed with this hat now. It was really comfy and easy to clean and wipe off when I accidentally got sand all over it. I definitely need to buy one in every color now.” —Cierra Benavidez 

    Get it from Amazon for $16.45 (available in 12 colors).

    7. A backless bodysuit you can wear with jeans or shorts for a fierce 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 20 colors).

    8. A sporty pair of water shoes that'll protect your precious feet from all the dangers lurking beneath the waves while keeping you oh-so stylish.


    Promising review: “These shoes are so comfortable!! They are perfect for the rocks in the bottom of the river! They stay on well and don't slip, even while running or jumping off of higher cliffs!” —AC1214

    Get them from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in sizes 6–11 and in 16 colors).

    9. A striped T-shirt dress so you'll have a new warm-weather go-to.


    Promising review: "I wear a US 16 and ordered a size XXL. I am 5'0" tall and 180 lbs. It hits right above my knees. This dress is cute with a sexy twist to it. I have washed it a couple of times and did not have problems with shrinking or fading. I wash on delicate cycle and hang it to dry." —South Carolina

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-2XL and seven colors).

    10. A fierce-ass pair of sunglasses to take your fashions to new heights.


    Get them from Walmart for $10.99 (available in three colors).

    11. A mini cross-body bag perfect for running errands or wearing to a concert or music festival.


    Promising review: "Beautiful, adjustable cross-body purse. Perfect size for when you need something bigger than a wallet but smaller than a handbag. It has a gorgeous finish and smells intoxicatingly like leather. The fringe adornment is fun without looking cheap. The strap is removable so it can double as a clutch. The main body is separated by a zippered pocket. The purse shows a quality of workmanship that you won't necessarily find for this price elsewhere. The seams are evenly sewed — there were no loose threads or flaws on it at all. It came well packaged, too. I couldn't be happier — this is exactly what I was looking for (and believe me, I spent hours looking for the right purse)." —Tekkiechikk

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in eight colors)

    12. A timeless Levi’s trucker jacket that’ll get better with every wear.


    Promising review: “I’m 5’6”, 145 lbs., 32-inch chest, 27-inch waist, a size 4 avg. I could have gone with the small. The medium is definitely roomy and I could fit a whole knitted sweater under it while buttoned. I ordered a medium because of other reviewers and I wish I didn't but I'm still keeping it. I love the color. For anyone a C-cup or smaller, I recommend your normal size.” —Eric 

    Get it from Amazon for $24.98+ (available in sizes XS-XL).

    13. A fierce pair of platform pumps which can add some serious attitude to a dress, pants, or even shorts.


    Promising review:  "I just pulled these out of the box and tried them on, and all I can say is WOW. They are gorgeous and SO sexy. I purchased them to wear for a bachelorette party, and I think they will do just fine. They seem super stable and are easy to walk in, as well. I never wear heels, seeing that I'm already six feet tall. But I'm so glad I ordered these! I wear a size 11, so they are a wee bit narrow. But they're still comfortable and cute.” —Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes 5-11 and 13 colors).

    14. A precious set of dinosaur pins for dressing up your denim jacket or favorite bag.


    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 $10.89.

    15. A see-through shirt as a chic addition to your closet you can easily dress up or down.


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

    16. A nylon tote bag with leather straps and a whole bunch of interior pockets that can hold EVERYTHING you need.


    Promising review: “I’m a teacher and bought this bag for work. I like the nylon material and I love that it zips! It’s perfect for when it’s raining and I don’t want my papers to get wet. It fits my laptop, papers, wallet, and a few other things comfortably. It also looks really great! This is an awesome teacher bag and at a great price.” —M.Flowers

    Get it from Amazon $39.99 (available in nine colors).

    17. A comfy pair of sandals you’ll want to rock with every outfit you throw on.


    Promising review: “I am really really pleased with these sandals. I have a hard time buying clothes and shoes online if not familiar with the brand. But I took a gamble on these sandals due to the positive reviews and price point. And I’m SO glad I did, I love them. They do run a smidge small. I wear a 10, and they were only a tad small, but not enough I cannot wear them. Buy these, you won’t regret it!” —Bruce Roeder 

    Get them from Amazon for $13.95+ (available in sizes 5-11 and eight colors).

    18. An adorable polka dot sleeveless dress — which includes an adjustable tie waist — to wear to a party or even on a date night.


    Promising review: “This dress is super cute and extremely lightweight, although is not see-through. I am 5’7.5” and I ordered a large. It fit true to size. When I wore it to work, I got a lot of compliments on it. I did have a little issue with a button not lined up correctly. But after talking with customer service, they were very helpful and made it right. Overall, I am happy with my purchase.” —Dawn Swisher 

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and five colors).

    19. A tie-back tank top versatile enough to rock all season long.

    Promising review: “This top is super cute and perfect for summer! I love it in white. It only comes in one size, so it was a little bit big on me. I recommend it for girls that wear size small and medium. The ties at the back are a really cute detail to the top!” —Elissa Huang

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in one size and 20 colors)

    20. A stunning multilayer necklace with a pendant and crystal that'll make your accessories collection even more epic.


    Get it from Walmart for $8.36 (available in eight colors).

    21. A chic plaid scarf in tons of colors that you can wear limitless ways to add some attitude to your fit.


    Promising review: “This scarf has a great weight to it and is very beautiful. I wear it like a wrap, over my shoulders, rather than a scarf as pictured — due to the thickness of the fabric it doesn't flow as pictured. I've gotten many compliments wearing it as a wrap.” —Doc Momma

    Get it from Amazon for $14.89 (available in 29 colors).
