A high-waisted wrap skirt donning fall’s unofficial fabric of choice: faux leather. It makes suede, flannel, corduroy, etc. look like an afterthought.

Promising review: “This skirt is an amazing buy. The cognac color is pretty, the overlay is just right. The quality of the material is so good and better than I expected. The length goes to mid-calf for me and I got a size small.” —Neressa Bacchus

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


An oversized knitted sweater vest for making the word “crisp” come to mind. Turtleneck weather is back, pets, and what better way to accessorize it than with the below? I’ll be taking five. Thanks.,

Promising review: “Love this! Well worth the price! I ordered a medium so that it wouldn’t be too oversized and look awkward. And it fits perfect!! I paired it with a white turtleneck underneath, but the options are limitless here. Was surprised at the quality of this item…it’s very soft and thick. Which wasn’t what I expected at all. My only real complaint is the price of the item. However, this item is very trendy, so I understand. Would definitely, and might, buy again very soon!” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S–L and nine colors).


A sleeved bodycon featuring drawstring ruching on each side, meaning that the length of this dress is — gird your loins here — completely adjustable. Attempt to contain your excitement until you reach the end of this post please.

Promising review: “This dress is Amazon gold. I own this in several different colors and it’s a must have. The best fabric… it’s a stretchy material that is just amazing.” —Aya Reimer 

Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 17 colors). 


A supportive underwire bodysuit to evoke the word ~swanky~ whenever you slip it on. Essentially, an addition like this to your going out wardrobe has the same energy as popping champagne or munching on caviar.,

Promising review: “I purchased this body suit to wear to a concert and didn’t think I would ever wear it again, but I was PLEASANTLY shocked with how amazing it turned out. I have a larger bust but a smaller waist so I ordered a small, the fit was perfect. The straps adjust really well and everyone LOVED my outfit.” —Hope Perkins

Get it from Amazon for $18.88+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 11 colors).


A matching set comprised of a midi dress and kimono, which means that those unreasonably warm brunch spots will no longer a problem. Simply take off the outer layer and bid adieu to sweating.


Get it from Boohoo for $20 (originally $50, available in sizes 12-24 and in five colors). 


A long-sleeved jumpsuit that requires absolutely 👏 no 👏 effort 👏. Finding a matching top and bottom before your morning cup of coffee is inconceivable, so we suggest slipping this cozy one-piece on instead.


Promising review: “I love this jumper. Super comfy, perfect fit. The waist is a string tie (not elastic!), which I really like. Elastic waistbands can sometimes be too tight even on comfortable clothes so the string is great. The ankles and wrists are stretchy with the perfect amount of ‘give’ so I can get my feet and hands in and out easily. The fabric is lightweight and easy to move, dance, yoga in. Of course, it’s a V-neck so I wear a cami, sports top or halter underneath. And pockets!” —Debbie

Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and four colors).


A cutout tee, because this is equally as comfortable as your favorite sleeved basic but *le gasp* about 10x more trendy. Who should start a style blog? You.,

Promising review: “Simple yet sexy off-the-shoulder black blouse. The shirt is true to size (I purchased a small) with extremely soft fabric. Definitely recommend air-drying this one after a wash.” —Saint Kaid

Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in six colors).


A ribbed knit pencil skirt, the free gift with purchase being immediate Instagram fame. This is far too trendy to be worn without photographic proof tbqh.

Promising review: “Love the fit of this skirt! Material is soft and stretchy and the ribbed pattern is very flattering. The color is beautiful as well.” —Amylia

Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS-L and in 21 colors).


A zippered cardigan and mini skirt you can consider a trillion outfits in one. Pair the top with high-waisted denim or black leggings, the skirt with a plain tee and blazer; the list is endless and exhaustive, so I’ll leave the rest up to your imagination.,

Promising review: “Absolutely in love with this brown set! I love that you can mix and match the top and skirt, as you can see on my picture I decided to combine the top with my oversized jeans and it looks amazing. Love the quality, the price, the color, how stretchy it is, as well as how great it feels on the skin.” —Veronika Matsievich

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S-L and in 19 colors).


A racerback tank that has most likely been blessed by a fairy godmother, because this takes your basic cami and goes *poof*. An instantly chic upgrade is yours for the taking due this high-neck silhouette.


Promising review: “I really love the fit of these tanks on me. They are a super soft thick but breathable material. I have ordered multiple colors at this point and have paired them in so many different ways. I love to wear them with long skirts for a more dressed up look. They look great with shorts in the warm weather. I get hot very easily and although the material is warmer I was super comfortable! These will be great for winter time in New England as well because the fabric is thicker and comfortable! These tanks are a good length and go great tucked in or over your bottoms.” —Ashley Bonnett

Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and 13 colors).


An off-shoulder blouse featuring a wrap waist and voluminous sleeves for THE party top of your dreams. Purchase this now now with the mindset that you’ll be wearing it to every singly semi-fancy occasion henceforth.,

Promising review: “This blouse is definitely a statement maker. I love how voluminous the sleeves are, it really adds so much drama to any outfit. The material is definitely thicker than expected but it makes it feel more luxe!” —Jessica Moore

Get it from Amazon for $36.99 (available in sizes XS-XL and in six colors).


A plaid flannel shirt that’s just inspired me to scour Airbnb for a staycation in the middle of nowhere. I can picture it already: surrounded by nature, drinking coffee in a semi-modern cabin with floor-to-ceiling windows.. all while wearing this top.

I feel like that person from the York Peppermint Patty commercial.

Promising review: “Such a cute flannel! Thick, great quality, well made, and definitely exceeded my expectations.” —A. D. Fox

Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in three colors).


A seamless set featuring a ribbed knit material best described as divine. Reviewers swear that the high-waisted leggings are squat-proof but “don’t feel suffocating,” which I’m pretty sure is allllll the proof we need that sorcery exists.,

Promising review: “This outfit fits so well but doesn’t feel suffocating. The pants at first looked too small but once I put them on they stretched out easily and the material is thick enough for it not to be see-through or show panty lines. The top is cozy to wear, supportive, and va-va voom if you wear it as a top on its own. It covers the back well too. I plan on ordering more colors.” —Jenny

Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in sizes S-L and in seven colors).


A pair of fleece-lined faux leather leggings guaranteed to make you feel ~trendier than thou~ strutting to your corner deli. Pair these with any simple top to make it look as if you didn’t snooze through your alarm this morning.

Promising review: “I purchased these faux leather leggings during a late-night Amazon shopping spree. They don’t look faux at all, are well-made, and I receive compliments on them every time I wear them. They are also extremely comfortable and fit like a second skin. They are super warm so I probably would not wear in warmer weather but are perfect for the fall and winter. They shape well and stay put! There is no rolling or slipping down with these babies. Put them on and they are going to stay where you put them. I love them!” —Kelly C. Albanese

Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS–4X Regular and Tall and in four styles).


A longline plaid jacket so chic, it won’t matter that it’s covered in the remnants of the apple cider donut you just inhaled.

Promising review: “WOW! This blazer is incredible! It is not stiff like business blazers; it is actually really soft and moves easily. I really like how it is not really heavy and won’t overheat you. It hit just below my rear. I really am happy with my purchase, and I recommend wearing this in the spring or on windy days.” —Fluff

Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes XXS–XXL and five colors).


An off-shoulder jumpsuit because in the era that won’t be named (*ahem* literally the one we are living in now), the impossible has happened: we’ve gotten sick of leggings. This simple number provides all the comfort from our once beloved staple but looks far more put-together.,

It’s a wide leg silhouette but, if you prefer a more fitted look, there’s enough excess material to tie around your ankles (exhibit in the left photo above).

Promising review: “I love this jumpsuit.The material is so soft and stretchy that I could probably sleep in it. I’ve gotten many compliments on it. and it’s great for running errands, parties, even work if you pair it with a sweater or blazer. I’m so glad I purchased.” —Hibah

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


Elastic waist faux leather shorts that look so. damn. chic. Mama loves comfy clothes that fool the masses into thinking I’m trendy (mama in this context = me), and these provide just that.

Promising review: “These faux leather shorts are a must have! Very stylish and comfortable. Great price and quality all in one. Love the length. They are not too long or short. Functional drawstring, functional pockets.” —Ely

Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL).


High-waisted bell bottoms because in the year of TikTok, it’s been made abundantly clear that the time has finally arrived to retire ankle-hugging denim. Reviewers swear these babies are stretchy, comfy, and look fantastic on ye old 🍑.,

Promising review: “Oh. My. Gosh. These jeans are incredibly, incredibly amazing. I have a very hourglass shape and I’ve looked, and looked, and looked for high-waisted bellbottoms or flares that would fit me for about two months and had no success…. until I found these. Not only did these jeans button with absolutely zero fuss, they slid up my legs and over my thighs like they were hand tailored to me. I have every intention of buying several pairs the next time I get paid!” —Kami

Get them from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes 1-15 and in 19 colors).


A mini deep-V dress featuring leopard and sleeves to remind us that autumn. has. arrived, despite the lingering summer humidity. This features an open back which means you’ll probably want to go sans underwire.

Promising review: “This is my favorite piece of clothing I’ve bought on Amazon (and I’ve bought a lot!). I got the green, and it is a gorgeous seafoam type color. It doesn’t have a lot of stretch, so make sure you order the correct size. Hits right above the knee but definitely covered my backside plenty. I love this dress and will be ordering it in more colors!” —Megan Kate Haugh

Get it from Amazon for $11.98+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 34 colors).


An oversized graphic tee faintly calling out for — do you hear it? — your favorite high-waisted denim. Perk up your ears, folks, because the heart wants what it wants and *this* top demands to be worn exclusively with trendy shoes (preferably of the combat boot variety).,

Promising review: “I LOVE basics and I can’t get enough of them! This graphic tee is something you want in your closet because you can make so many outfits with it. The material is soft and comfortable and it has an oversized fit.” —Marielle Sanchez

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


A mock neck bodysuit bound to be on constant rotation this fall. While this piece of clothing may not wear Uggs or guzzle down pumpkin spice, it still remains the perfect basic.

Promising review: “This is so soft and so comfortable. It’s the first bodysuit I’ve bought and I don’t know why I haven’t purchased these sooner, it’s amazing. I was worried about the snaps being uncomfortable, but you don’t even know they’re there. I also worried for the price if it might be see-through but it’s not at all. I’ll probably be buying this in every color.” —MW 

Get it from Amazon for $19.98 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 31 colors). 


A faux leather jacket — arguably *the* most important wardrobe staple you’ll ever purchase. Ever. Throwing this on over denim jeans and a white tee has a 1,000% effectiveness rate at making you look like a bass-strumming rock star.

Forever 21

Get it from Forever 21 for $44.99 (available in sizes 0X–4X). 


A V-neck slit dress for a look that screams “I tried” but requires merely 10 seconds of effort. Throw this on, reach for a fedora or fasten a messy bun, and et voilà.,

Promising review: “I absolutely love this dress! I am tall and it’s so hard to find anything that is a true maxi”length for my 5’11” frame. This dress comes to my ankles, flows beautifully, and the true wrap style is great. If you are tall you should definitely buy this dress!” —Jami

Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 21 colors).


Medium-weight ankle pants that laugh in the face of business casual’s past with a cinched waist, wide-leg silhouette. Translation: These are comparable to leggings in comfort but still allow you to retire those black slacks. *shudders at the thought of wearing them*


Promising review: “Absolutely love these wide legged pants! The fabric feels amazing and I’m 5’2 and didn’t have to alter the length.” —wearrubies

Get them from Amazon for $49.90 (available in sizes XXS-XXL).


A boho-inspired mini dress ideal for spring, summer, and fall. Add a denim jacket and combat boots for a look that says “Halloween is nigh as evident by my outerwear and footwear choice.”

Promising review: “It’s long enough as a tunic top for me to wear with leggings. It’s super cute and is a breathable fabric. I live in Texas where the heat is sweltering so I’d only wear this out to dinner during the summer months but during the cooler months, this will be adorable to wear with leggings.” —Dagogirl

Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes 0X-4X and in eight colors).


A faux suede mini skirt serving Big Fall Energy. Your outfit will have basically attained a Pinterest level of perfection — just add some boots and a bodysuit. Glass of apple cider in hand is optional but highly encouraged.,

Promising review: “I love this skirt so much! I got a large (150 pounds, 5’4″), and it fits me perfectly. I’ve had this black skirt for around nine months now, and it has become a staple in my wardrobe! It has very VERY small pockets, but pockets nonetheless, and it’s very comfortable. The zipper is high quality, the material feels expensive, and I haven’t noticed any fabric shrinkage or color fading! For me it hits around mid-thigh.” —liv

Get it from Amazon for $13.21+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 21 colors).


An off-shoulder maxi that had me humming the intro of The Lovin’ Spoonful’s “Do You Believe In Magic?” as soon as I laid my peepers on it. That smocking! The mid-thigh slit! I officially believe in the existence of sorcery.

Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in 14 colors).


A fleece hoodie dress I intend on buying/hibernating in all chilly season long. 🎶 So long, farewell, gotta add this to my Amazon cart. 🎶,

Promising review: “This dress is very comfortable and cozy for the winter. I am tall and plus size. It falls halfway down my calves. It’s very thick and nicely made. I just throw it on to run errands and look cute while doing it. It’s as comfy as a pair of sweatpants but way more stylish. I love it and will be buying other colors.” —Theresa Casanova

Get it from Amazon for $37.99 (available in sizes S-3X and in 10 colors).


A batwing-sleeve dress that rivals your favorite blanket for softness. Reviewers swear by the below for both comfort *and* style; just add some stilettos and jewelry to zhuzh it up for RSVP-requiring occasions.

Promising review: “Super cute, comfortable dress. Not too thick, but still warm. Comes with a little snap button and thread you can sew on the front chest area, in case you need to be sure nothing comes popping out!” —jessica 

Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 13 colors). 


High-waisted pants featuring snazzy (and adjustable) bow detailing by the ankles, aka you’ll be able to slightly alter their silhouette. Keep ’em loose if you prefer more breeze or tighten them if you’re a staunch skinny denim supporter.

Promising review: “Absolutely perfect! I ordered them in black for work pants but after getting them in I ordered them in multiple other colors because they are now my go to pants for going to work and going out 10/10 would recommend. I waited to make this review to be sure I could afford to buy all the colors I wanted first because I know this product will TAKE OFF when people try them on!” —Addison Stick

Get them from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 36 colors).


A padded long-line sports bra that reaps the versatility of a tank with the sweet, sweet support of underwire thanks to a body-hugging fit. TL;DR: going braless will have never felt so secure.,

Promising review: “I can’t stop sharing how much I LOVE this sports bra. It is 100% my new favorite bra to work out in, lounge in, wear out, etc. It fits me so well, has GREAT support, and once I put it on, I don’t have to worry about a thing. I also love that I can wear this with shorts or as a cute crop top during the summer.” —Bekah Kinne

& Other Stories

Get it from & Other Stories for $49 (available in sizes XS–L and in five colors). 


A drawstring romper with all the comfort of the pajama set you’ve been wearing to bed since 1893, but it’s not fuzzy fleece rubber duck pajamas and ergo a *lot* more chic.

Promising review: “I LOVE this romper! It was perfect for walking around in hot Savannah and I received many compliments. Not only is it comfortable and soft, but looks so chic. Obsessed!” —Jennifer Ferrara

Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 11 colors).


A square-neck midi ideal for frolicking through pumpkin patches in an ethereal “I was a fairy in a past life” kind of way. This is an easy one-and-done outfit that requires less effort than matching a top to your favorite leggings, plus the breezy material will feel lovely against your skin.,

Promising review: “I wore the orange one to my cousin’s fall wedding and I didn’t want to take it off. It is SO COMFORTABLE! The material is nice and I am considering buying another color. It can get a bit wrinkly, but I just threw it in the dryer for a bit and shook it out and it touched up nicely. Buy it! You’ll feel like a character from a Jane Austen novel.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and in 15 colors).


An off-shoulder bardot mini because no, you do not want to go out tonight, but yes, you did RSVP last week. Presenting at least one less headache: this dress. It goes with every shoe and accessory, plus the material is comfortable and doesn’t feel restrictive (despite the fact that it’s a bodycon).
