1. A lightweight long-sleeve shirt bound to match anything you pair it with. Jeans? Yes. Shorts? You betcha. A skirt? WHY NOT.


Promising review: “This shirt is exactly what I was looking for. It’s lightweight but not totally see-through. It was perfect for taking pics on a hot day.” —Sherah B.

Get it from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in sizes S-XL and 11 colors).

2. A simple short-sleeve body suit that was made to show off your best necklaces. You can wear it solo in the summer and with layers in the winter — and I wish this came in every color under the sun.

Forever 21

Get it from Forever 21 for $7.99 (available in sizes 0X-3X and six colors).

3. A go-with-everything gold necklace that’s as adorable as it is cheap — and it’s REALLY freakin’ adorable. Do we need more gold necklaces? Probably not. Should we buy this? Oh, 1,000%.


Promising review: “I’ve worn this necklace almost everyday since I’ve gotten it. Loveeeeeeeeeeeee it so much. Doesn’t rust or change colors. Holds up pretty great! I’ve went swimming, worked out, lived life. This things has been through it all.” —Ashlee Harris

Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (available in 17 styles).

4. A midi dress (WITH POCKETS!) available in tons of prints and colors so you’re set for your next summer getaway, and then many summer getaways after that.,

Promising review: “Get this dress. I am so pleased with the fit and the quality, and I can’t wait to wear it out on vacation in a couple of weeks! I’m 5-feet tall, 180 lbs., and curvy. I got the medium and it fits perfectly. There’s a little bit of stretch so you could probably size down if you wanted to.” —Kelli

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 34 prints/colors).

5. A long blazer that’ll perfectly blend your work and play life and give you an easy-to-transition piece you’ll want to wear every. dang. day.


Get it from H&M for $34.99 (available in sizes XXS-XXL and five colors/prints).

6. A splurge-worthy set of shell hoops for a gooooorgeous addition to your earring collection. With these around, your other hoops may never see the light of day.


This incredible company, Maaari, was founded by two Filipina-American women. Their products are crafted by Filipinos, and their store provides a marketplace for these crafters to share their talents with the world.

Get them from Maaari for $90 (available in brass and sterling silver).

7. A button-up tank you can dress up (hello, cardigan!) and down for casual weekends. It’s simple but still charming — the two pillars of staple clothing.


Promising review: “My favorite thing about this top is that it doesn’t cling to your body. It’s loose-fitting but in a flattering way. The straps are also adjustable, so you can make the neckline come up higher if you don’t want to show cleavage. I ordered my usual size (medium), but I could have sized down in this. I would say for a loose fit, stick true-to-size, and size down for a form-fitting fit.” —Jasmine L.

Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 19 colors/prints).

8. A tie-neck blouse, because your closet — and I cannot stress this enough — could always use more statement-making tops in this timeless silhouette.


Promising review: “This blouse is the ultimate blouse to amp up your power suit. I got the mint and paisley prints and I’m extremely pleased. Just waiting for the next meeting even if it’s a Zoom meeting to wear!” —C.T.

Get it from Eloquii for $79.95+ (available in sizes 14-28 and in four patterns).

9. A classic slip-on mule that, yes, you can slip on quickly and still end up with a timeless look. Tell your closet to make room, because these puppies are here for the long haul.


Promising review: “I love these shoes. They elevate any outfit and are super comfy. No break-in required. Thanks Nisolo for another great product!” —Kylie R.

Get them from Nisolo for $100 (available in sizes 5-11 and three colors).

10. A pair of paper-bag trousers with pockets AND a tie, ruffle waist for a work ensemble that’s as equally stylish as it is affordable — and I’m not sure there is much that can top that! /

Promising review: “Love these pants. Comfortable and washed well. I am 5-foot-6, 120 lbs. and I ordered the medium. I wanted the fit to be a little baggy and it is. I would usually wear a small or size 4; based on the reviews I ordered one size up.” —nocutename

Get them from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes XS-3XL and 40 colors).

11. A classic denim skirt, because they refuse to go out of style (thank god), and your wardrobe deserves to have one of its very own.

12. A fedora hat, because every closet needs a go-to hat to tie an entire ensemble together. And good news for us, this one comes in 23 colors!

Promising review: “Love my hats!! I bought two of them, a black and a brown and they are just adorable. They fit perfectly, and are even adjustable!! They have a cord on the inside to adjust if it’s too large. I think they’re perfect and they’re everything I was expecting and then some!! Wish I could afford one in every color!” —Darlene E.

Get it from Amazon for $16.45 (available in 23 colors).

13. A satin cami that’ll give all your other camis a run for their dang money. Say hello to your new favorite layering piece.


Promising review: “Worth every penny! Beautiful v-neck cami! The ‘V’ is front and back so you can wear the deeper V in the front or back. I will wear this by itself or layer it. I will be ordering more colors. Fits as expected. I ordered an XS. It might run a tad big for an XS. Very comfortable, though!” —douglasncali

Get it from Amazon for $13.49+ (available in sizes XS-XXXL and 22 colors).

14. A peplum wrap blouse perfect for any occasion. Dinner date? Grab some heels and leather leggings. Work? Trousers and a blazer, and you’re ready to go.


Promising review: “If I could give this 20 stars I would. LOVE THIS BLOUSE!!! It’s sexy and girly. You may need a camisole under it, but it’s a beautiful feminine blouse. I ordered the 0XL and I’m a 36DD and it fits perfect. Wearing to my office Christmas party this year (2018). I’ve also ordered ALLLLLLL the other colors available in my size. Wear with jeans and heels…and summer here I come!” —SoozanJBee

Promising review: “I’m actually super excited about this top!! Quality is great, especially considering the price. I’m a 34B, 5-foot-7, and about 145 lbs. The bust area was a touch tight but just barely — otherwise the fabric is flowy but substantial and has some room in the waist. Straps and shoulders fit perfect. If you’re between sizes, size up. Really excited to wear it! Sexy and classy!” —Kristi Tolund

Get it from Amazon for $6.98+ (available in sizes S-XXL and 21 colors/prints).

19. A pair of black carpenter shorts you’ll have to pry from your T-shirts’ dead cold hands. Seriously, all the tops in your closet are gonna L-O-V-E these.

J.Crew Factory

Get it from J.Crew Factory for $72.50 (originally $98; available in sizes XXS-3XL and in petite sizes).

22. A pair of very trendy sunglasses as equally cute as they are cheap. Really, it should be a crime how affordable these are — which is great for you, no more stress when you lose them for the fifth time., Amazon

Promising review: “Because of the price, I was super skeptical about these. I will seriously always buy their sunglasses now! They are the best material (sturdy wire) and the black frame is not too dark like my Quay sunglasses were…I honestly like them better! Came on time, packaged perfectly and came with case and a napkin to wipe them off. Couldn’t have better things to say about these!!! I wear them all the time.” —Abigail Baffoe

Get them from Amazon for $13.94+ (available in eight colors).

23. Or! A prescription pair from Zenni so you can explore and wander, aaaaand actually be able to see every little detail. No! More! Squinting!

Nasty Gal

Get it on sale from Nasty Gal for $27.90 (originally $62; available in sizes 2-10).

25. A high-waisted pleated skirt — and I’m pretty sure it’s mandatory to twirl in this everywhere you go.,

Promising review: “I wanted to love this skirt, and I DO! It’s one of the most worn items in my closet, from wintertime with sweaters to spring with beautiful blouses. The skirt is a nice heavy material that allows for beautiful hang and flow. It doesn’t wrinkle and even packs beautifully without wrinkling. This skirt is a closet staple.” —Cait

27. A watch that seriously looks just as sleek as the expensive ones all over your Instagram timeline.,

Promising review: “I ordered this watch not expecting to be blown away because, of the price. Boy, was I wrong! I immediately put on the watch as soon as I opened it up; it fits comfortably and the band wasn’t too small, which I was a little concerned about. I’ll definitely be looking to purchase other styles of this watch. Great buy, especially for the price!” —Jessica Kurry

Get it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in 11 colors).

28. A soft, stretchy, and simple maxi dress you can dress up or down for basically any occasion.


Promising review: “This was one of my first Amazon dress purchases. The fabric feels thick, definitely not see through, and nice quality for the price. It looked a little small out of the package, but fit perfect without being too tight. I am 5-foot-5, 135 lbs., size 6, and 36C and I ordered a small and it fit great. I like that the length is just enough so if I wear short heels it doesn’t drag at all.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and 26 colors/prints).

29. A button-up cardigan made in a lightweight cotton blend that can easily be slipped under trendy jackets in the winter or over a dress on cooler summer days., Amazon

Promising review: “This is my go-to cardi now! I loved it as a layer when I went to San Francisco, and I have kept wearing it ever since. It’s not too long and not too short — on me it doesn’t cover my butt all the way, so I wouldn’t wear it just with leggings, but it’s just short enough that it looks good with jeans. The sleeves are very soft and stretchy so can easily pushed up to my elbows, which I do a lot. I love the snaps, but there are a ton of them, lol, but I usually wear it open anyways.” —Julia

Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL, two styles, and 18 colors).

30. A faux-leather romper with a wrap waist and shawl collar that’s sure to get you at least a hundred, where did you get that?

31. A three-quarter sleeve dress available in tons of prints so you always have a go-to on the days when you just don’t know what the heck to wear.


Promising review: “I am actually wearing this dress at work while I write the review for it! Extremely comfortable material with some stretch to it, and the quality is also better than I was expecting! I am 5-foot-5, 135 lbs., 32DD, 4/6 dress size, and I ordered the medium. The dress falls about five inches past my knee, which makes it perfect for casual Fridays at work, but it is also perfect for date nights because you can easily dress it up. The bottom of the dress is very forgiving — aka you have room to expand after a big dinner but it doesn’t look like you did! The sleeves were also a comfortable fit. All in all, very happy with this purchase!” —Sarah G

Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and 13 colors).

32. An off-the-shoulder top featuring a flowy silhouette, tie sleeves, and a timeless vibe. Sorry to all your other shirts in advance.


Promising review: “I actually purchased two of these shirts. I love them both! They fit just as described. The material is super soft and lays perfect at just the right places. It can be worn tucked in or left out, either way looks great. I am more than happy with my purchase and will be getting these in more colors. This is truly a shirt that is made for everyone.” —TGirl

Get it from Amazon for $7.39+ (available in sizes XS-XXXL and in 24 colors).

33. A lacy bodysuit that was practically made for your favorite skirts, jeans, and shorts. Name a pair of bottoms and this will match it perfectly. /

Promising review: “I am 5-foot-7 and 210 pounds, and the XXL fit me well. It was my first bodysuit purchase and I will be buying more like this in other colors! The bust gives a good amount of room without being too loose. I am a 40D to give you some sizing info. Great buy and great price for what you get.” —Amanda Rose

Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in XS-3XL and two colors).

34. Relaxed-fit trousers for a chic pant option you’ll want to wear every day — which, in that case, ya better just buy two pairs!

35. A basic but classic bodycon midi that’ll pair just as well with a casual denim jacket as it will with your best pumps. What more could you want from a dress?!,

Promising review: “This dress is so cute!! It really hugs and accentuates your curves. The fabric is super soft and almost fleece like on the inside. (But it’s not see through or light.) It is so comfy I could literally sleep in it. I bought it for New Years, but 10/10 would wear for any occasion.” —Julianne

Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 13 colors).

36. A casual pencil dress made in a cotton blend fabric so you can treat your well-deserved work attire to something super charming and comfy.,

Promising review: “I received so many compliments with dress. I purchased this dress in purple and paired it with a nice black stiletto. I tend to wear this with a low bun so that the bow at the neckline stands out more. The bow really adds a touch of class to the dress. A must have in any color!” —prisma365

Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S-XL and 11 colors)

37. A denim jumpsuit that practically screams, “Wear me all the time!!!” And honestly, it’s stylish enough that you could (and should!) 100% do that.
