By the way, I don't think I've ever gotten so many compliments." —xbombshellx

    You can style it with a halter strap or strapless.

    Promising review: "I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect maxi dress for SO long and have always found things to critique about them. BUT ALAS. This. Dress. Is. Unreal. The back is sexy, the length is a dream, and the material is out of this world comfortable! I wore it for a formal event, but I already know this will be my favorite throw-on-and-go dress of the summer." —chelseaisabelle3

    These are made of genuine leather and have zippers.

    It's made of genuine suede.

    Promising review: "Purchased this fanny for a weekend trip to Denver, and it was the best purchase! It went well with all my outfits — going out and hiking! Just be careful not to get it wet or the color will change but if you like it that way...even better! I bring this thing everywhere I go now." —oonejoo

    Price: $48 (available in five colors)

    Price: $90 (available in sizes 5–11 and five colors)

    19. An oversized, striped cotton blazer — it will be just as versatile as your fave black one.

    Promising review: "Ordered the blush pink in a small, and it is such a gorgeous staple jacket. Well-made, thick, but can layer. Beautiful colors." —Vicky123

    Price: $168 (available in sizes XS–L and two colors)

    20. A show-stopping maxi dress that can easily pass for a two-piece set.

    Promising review: "Beautiful, elegant, and breezy! I love this dress. Purchased in frosted mink. Extremely comfortable and easy to wear. It was very eye-catching, and I received many compliments. Was a little loose around the waist, but you can pretty much tie it as tight as needed." —bwrose

    Price: $118 (available in sizes XS–L and six colors)

    21. A nourishing lip and cheek tint to keep in your bag for quick, last-minute touch-ups.

    Promising review: "I have this in Demure and use it every day. I have fair skin for reference. It is so easy to use and looks so natural. My lips look like they're naturally this pink and my cheeks look barely flushed and dewy when I put it on. Awesome makeup." —megjoh

    Price: $36 (available in six shades)

    22. A delicate lace bra you shouldn't pass up on because reviewers say it's surprisingly comfy and supportive.

    Promising review: "I bought two of these bras because they are so amazing. The boning on the sides helps prevent spilling out of the side of the cup, which offers so much extra support. I love the way this bra looks, and it feels like a bralette, it is so comfortable! I usually wear a 34DDD at Victoria's Secret and I ordered this bra in a 36DD, and it fits perfectly. This is the best bra I have ever worn!" —ashacolette

    Price: $48 (available in sizes 32A–36DD)

    23. A portable razor so you can shave on the go. It's a refillable water spray bottle, a moisturizing pre-shave bar, and two razor blades all in one.

    Promising review: "I bought this travel razor for a weekend trip because it was so compact, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. It worked really great as a touch-up razor and did not leave me with any irritation. I'm also able to shave missed spots on the beach while being discreet, which is an awesome plus." —RebeccaRey

    Price: $15 (available in three colors)

    24. A lovely embroidered midi dress that'll instantly put you in a good mood.

    Promising review: "I got this dress in pink, and it's just absolutely stunning. It falls beautifully, the weight of the material is perfect, the belt is in exactly the right place, and the neckline is stunning. I've since ordered it in yellow because I can see myself living in these this spring and summer." —sarahparmenter

    Price: $128 (available in sizes XS–XL and four colors)

    25. A classic denim jacket to be your BFF on slightly chilly summer evenings.

    Promising review: "I finally caved this season and bought my first denim jacket, and I have to say, this one doesn't disappoint! It's a great fit, stretchy enough for plenty of movement, and keeps you warm on those cool summer nights. I love this jacket, and I'm so glad I bought it!" —julie3

    Price: $98 (available in sizes XS–L and two colors)

    26. A low-back bralette you should take the plunge and buy because it's just so damn versatile.

    Price: $30 (available in sizes XS/S–M/L and 11 colors)

    27. A crystal facial roller for giving your skin a nice, cooling massage.

    Promising review: "I have been looking everywhere for a crystal facial roller and after a lot of research, I went with this Skin Gym facial roller, and I AM SO HAPPY I DID! I would recommend this beauty roller as a way of treating yourself to a facial at home. I put mine in the fridge and have been using it in the evening and the morning, and I definitely see a difference in my skin. It feels so good in the morning to de-puff under my eyes. This is the perfect addition to my beauty routine." —allig

    Price: $32

    28. A convertible leather backpack that'll give you the option to carry it four ways.

    Promising review: "This bag is simply amazing. I travel for work so the quality and functionality are great — not only is it super stylish but it is super useful with the size and all the pockets! It is convertible so you can wear it as a backpack (my fave), over the shoulder, on your arm, or even as a crossbody. The leather is so incredibly soft and looks better the more you wear it in. Super sturdy too, which is good because I'm hard on bags and have to carry a lot with me. I love it so much I want to buy in another color." —jessicalee10

    Price: $268 (available in two colors)

    29. An all-natural plumping gloss to add a subtle layer of sparkle and color to your lips.

    It's made from antioxidant-rich minerals and organic ingredients.

    Promising review: "Glad I took a chance on this one because I had never heard of this company. The gloss has tiny light-reflecting sparkles, which make your lips look fuller. But unlike other lip plumpers, this one is not drying at all. It is like a facelift for your lips." —carlynb

    Price: $25 (available in 12 shades)

    30. A pair of flowy statement pants for an easy way to look stylish without trying. They'll also transition easily from summer to fall.

    Promising review: "I love these so much! I wear them with a cropped sweater on chillier days, but they look amazing with a simple bodysuit in the summertime. They’re just perfect. I’m usually a large but in these, I did get a medium because they’re definitely oversized." —fpmebb

    Price: $78 (available in sizes XS–L)

    31. An open cross-back workout tank so your nice sports bras can peek out and have a chance to shine.

    Promising review: "This shirt is so cute, even my boyfriend commented on how he likes it! So perfect for working out and showing off cute sports bras underneath! Definitely recommend! Soft, light, and super comfy!" —rachillin

    Price: $38 (available in sizes XS–L and six colors)

    32. A super lightweight mini dress with dreamy bell-sleeves that might bring a ~tier~ to your eye.

    Promising review: "I got this dress in the black/gray. The sleeves are a little long, but I think that’s just how they are supposed to be. It’s easy and lightweight enough for spring but could easily be paired with knee-high boots for fall. I love pieces like this that can be used ALL year round!" —rmt

    Price: $60 (available in sizes XS–L and seven colors)

    33. A button-front denim jumper to wear on its own or with a T-shirt layered underneath.

    Promising review: "I saw an actress wearing a denim dress very similar to this and wanted one ever since. When I came across this Free People beauty, I purchased it instantly. Because of its form-fitting silhouette, I ordered one size up from my normal size. I’ll be wearing this dress all summer." —mmoss91

    Price: $98 (available in sizes 0–12 and three colors)

    34. A sleeveless embroidered top you can wear as a dress, tunic, or beach coverup.

    Promising review: "This top goes with everything! It has a really light feel, so it doesn't weigh me down, and it is super flowy, which is perfect for the summer. It runs a bit large but that is just the style of the shirt. I totally recommend this shirt." —kenzal97

    Price: $108 (available in sizes XS–L and four colors)

    35. A pair of foot-friendly sandals no one will be able to tell are Birkenstocks.

    Promising review: "If you’re not really into the Birkenstock look, these are great because they look like a simple, strappy sandal, while also being extremely comfortable. I can wear them all day without my feet hurting." —meghan_

    Price: $100 (available in sizes 36–41 and two colors)

    36. A linen blend trench coat that'll drape perfectly and won't make you look like Inspector Gadget.

    Promising review: "Often this style looks like a bathrobe on me, which is disappointing. This one works because it's slimmer in profile than many others and also the tucking at the waist. Because I'm 5'2", it's pretty long on me, but the XS fits well otherwise. The fabric is a linen type but doesn't seem like it will wrinkle much. Unlined. It will be a nice addition in the spring!" —suzen845

    Price: $168 (available in sizes XS–L and three colors)

    37. A gentle, all-natural exfoliator to help remove dead skin and debris. Reviewers say the formula leaves their skin smooth and soft.

    It has a non-abrasive and alcohol-free formula.

    Promising review: "This product is absolutely amazing! I use it twice a week and my face is so soft, and my complexion improved immediately. I have very sensitive skin, and it exfoliates without irritating. Follow with serum and moisturizer in the evening and wake up with fresh glowing skin!" —fperind

    Price: $44

    38. A square-neck body suit perfect for tucking and layering because you never have to worry about it bunching up.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this bodysuit. I really have been enjoying this trend, but it's so hard for me to find ones that are comfortable in all the right places. This one hits the mark! I ordered the nude color and intend to order more! Definitely a great staple piece alone or for layering in fall/winter! The material is soft and substantial as well. This wasn't an issue for me but do keep in mind that the straps aren't adjustable. It'd be easy to have them altered if necessary though." —dmegen

    Price: $30 (available in sizes XS–L and 14 colors)

    39. A cropped rib tee — a closet essential you'll wonder how you've managed to survive without.

    Promising review: "This top is such an essential in my wardrobe now. The stretchy but not super tight material and slightly cropped length make it perfect for virtually any type of bottoms. I can wear it with high waisted pants, mid-rise, low rise for a bit of skin showing, etc., and it tucks in so perfectly. Definitely a staple in my wardrobe!" —jxy27

    Price: $28 (available in sizes XS–L and six colors)

    40. A pair of belted cotton pants that won't cling to your legs on a hot day.

    Promising review: "I’m about to order these in another color because they are so comfy, and I get so many compliments on these pants! So easy to throw on with a tank top and run out the door and still look fabulous. Obsessed!" —samkcrooks

    Price: $78 (available in sizes 0–12 and two colors)

    41. A pair of velvety soft leggings sure to be the star of all your gym clothes.

    Promising review: "I am very picky about my activewear (90% of my activewear comes from a well-known, relatively expensive yoga company I'm sure most of you know), and I think these are incredible. I went for the gray ones and love them. They hug you in all the right places. Also, they are soft and smooth (almost feel like suede on the inside?!) and the quality is on point. I am typically a S/4/27 and these fit me well in a size small, but they are tight (which is what I like), and some might prefer to size up. If you are one who is willing to spend a premium on your athletic/athleisure wear, def give these a shot!" —inklnvkx

    Price: $86 (available in sizes XS–L and three colors)

    42. A sporty bikini top with cut-out details that won't budge, even during a round of beach volleyball.

    Promising review: "I ordered the top in merlot and in white, and I absolutely love them! The fit is sporty and flirty. I love the back detail and that the back straps are adjustable. I am small chested so I ordered both in a small. They have a snug fit, which I like for running around on the beach all day. I tend to stay away from triangle-style tops but this one caught my eye and I am so glad I ordered it! Absolutely recommend!" —miss_t

    Price: $76 (bottoms for $66)

    43. A printed bandana for adding a bit of bohemian flair to your hair or outfit. It can be a hair accessory, worn as a top or scarf, or tied around a handbag.

    Promising review: "The material is great! Since it's on the thinner side, it's not too bulky when you fold it. This bandana gives you a lot of styling options too because you have so much more fabric to work with!" —Janice

    Price: $28 (available in eight designs)

    44. A slinky racerback tank top you can count on to never get wrinkled, ever.

    Promising review: "This shirt is the best (I have it in three colors and counting). It's easy to dress up or dress down, and the most amazing feature is it doesn't wrinkle. EVER. I'm a flight attendant and have to pack items ready to wear. This shirt is great for a grab-and-go option for casual and dressy occasions. I'm obsessed." —lesISmore

    Price: $20 (available in sizes XS–L and 11 colors)

    45. A pair of Western-inspired booties to wear with badass moto jeans, pretty floral dresses, and everything in between.

    These are made of genuine leather.

    Promising review: "I've been eyeing these booties literally for years and FINALLY decided to get them, and I wish I would've bought them sooner! Now I want them in all the colors. The heel is the perfect height and the snakeskin suede with the metal details are a match made in shoegasm heaven! So trendy and easy to dress up or down." —sscarville

    Price: $198 (available in sizes 5–11 and six colors)
