amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Best dress I’ve ever owned (besides my wedding dress). It’s beautiful, flattering, and now I have to buy more colors. I did size down and it fits so perfectly. Plus, it’s super soft and comfortable.” —Barby Hays

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 15 colors).

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I never write reviews, but these are easily the best jeans I have ever owned in my life and I had to share!!! They fit perfectly in every way to the point where I can’t believe these aren’t custom made for me. They are incredibly comfortable without sacrificing the look of real jeans and the tummy panel is FANTASTIC. On top of all of that, these are more comfortable than my leggings. I’m in love with these pants and will be purchasing the rest of the colors to replace every other pair of jeans I own.” —Anonymous

Boohoo

Get them from Boohoo for $12.80 (originally $32, available in sizes 12-20).

A sleeved romper cleverly designed with a tie-front that can be adjusted to your liking (this is particularly fab for anyone who loves V-neck styles, but doesn’t feel comfortable with the lower cut).


amazon.com

Promising review: “I usually do not like rompers because the shorts always ride up my thighs when I walk, but these shorts are flowy and perfect! The adjustable tie also lets you cover your chest as much or as little as you want. Perfect material and super cute!” —MW

Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in 14 colors).

Get them from Girlfriend Collective for $48 (available in sizes XS-6XL and in 10 colors).

Get it from Amazon for $25.89+ (available in sizes S-XXL and in 13 colors).

14.

Reviewer recommend ordering a size down!

Promising review: “Lately I have been really into maxi dresses for their comfort and convenience. This dress is perfect for the person who needs to get ready in a pinch. I can wear it around the house, grab the mail, throw a t-shirt or sweater over it if I want more modesty to go out, or accessorize for cleaner look. It accentuates the bust and upper waist while hiding the bottom which I like. It’s awesome. I’ve ordered two so far.” —Joanna

Drawstring joggers with a tapered silhouette that are equally as cozy as your fleece rubber duck PJ bottoms, but (no offense) a lot more polished.

amazon.com

Promising review: “Super cute, flattering, and true to size. I like that it can be dressed up or down, although the slit on both sides does give it a more casual appearance. Overall, I’m very happy with my purchase. Love it!” —Ali C.

26.

Levi’s 501 skinny jeans that are white without being see-through. That’s right. A round of applause would be appropriate right about now.


Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

“Perhaps the best part about these white jeans is that they’re not thin and see-through — I’m actually wearing black underwear in these pictures but you can hardly tell! It’s amazing. After an entire season of wear, they still look brand spanking new (I’m also careful not to spill on them) and haven’t stretched out at all. (NGL, they’re actually a little tight now that I’ve spent a couple months at home.) If you love really stretchy denim, these are probably not for you but if you like not-overly-rigid denim that keeps its shape over time, then look no further, friends! (P.S. The exact pair I’m wearing is no longer available but the same model comes in a variety of colors, and there’s a very similar pair in white with distressed detailing.)” —Yi Yang, BuzzFeed Editor

Get them from Levi’s for $49 (originally $98, available in sizes 23-32, and in eight colors).

27.

A scoop neck swing dress for curling up on the couch with a good book *or* for running errands. The world is truly your oyster with this trusty number.


Amazon

Promising review: “So, so comfortable and fits exactly as described. This is definitely my go-to dress when I need something cute and nice looking to throw on quickly. The navy-and-red striped dress is perfect with flip-flops and keeps me nice and cool in the North Carolina heat!” —Bebe

Get it from Amazon for $12.71+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 14 colors).

28.

A smocked puff shoulder top so gorgeous, I’m pretty sure it inspired the creation of the following emoji: 😍.


Urban Outfitters

Get it from Urban Outfitters for $59 (available in sizes XS-XL and in two colors).

29.

TSLA leggings comparable to bottoms from much more expensive brands. Not only are these high-waisted leggings super comfortable, but they’ve also got pockets and aren’t see-through. Can all of your other leggings say the same? I think not.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I never take the time to write reviews and I order off Amazon all the time. I am a Lululemon fanatic and particularly love the Align pant (which retails for $85+) but can’t afford or rationalize buying tons of them. I’m always on the hunt for a good yoga pant and I found these the other day and ordered them in size small, and these remind me of the Align pant so much! They are cut almost identical, but the fabric is a little stiffer. This isn’t a bad thing; the Align pant is almost too buttery soft and it pills and gets caught on everything. There is slight compression with these and mine aren’t see-through (even when squatting). I love love love these and am going to order several more. I actually kinda want to cry thinking about how much money I wasted on the pants when these are an excellent substitute for a fraction of the cost.” —Ariel Parker

Get them from Amazon for $8.98+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and in 43 colors).

30.

A crewneck T-shirt destined to become the ~little black dress~ of your daily uniform. In other words, this no-frills basic *will* be worn all the darn time.


Amazon

Promising review: “I LOVE this top! It is on the longer side and actually comes down to my hips. The material is very stretchy, soft, and comfortable. I will definitely be purchasing other colors!” —RWmom

Get it from Amazon for $17 (available in sizes 1X-6X and in four colors).


Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

“These babies are snug and a not-too-spandexy kind of stretchy. Made of a thick cotton-based denim, they feel way more like jeans than jeggings, so I absolutely have to do the ~skinny jeans dance~ to get them on. But when they’re *actually on*, they mooooove with you and you can really dance in them! So comfy! They are super skinny through the ankle, hug in the right places without stretching out, and they even lift your booty up — 🙌. My waist-to-hips ratio (smaller waist, bigger hips) usually makes finding well-fitting jeans hard, but these never gap at the waist or back and don’t get stretched out between wears (because who remembers to wash their jeans that often, amirite?).—Maitland Quitmeyer, BuzzFeed Senior Editor

Get them from American Eagle for $37.46 (available in sizes 00–20, in short, regular, long, and X-long lengths).

32.

A soft graphic tee you can pair with your favorite leggings or high-waisted denim for a lived-in look that screams “I am a vintage connoisseur.” This top can totally pass as something you found after countless hours spent sifting through thrift store racks.


amazon.com

Get it from Amazon for $13.60+ (available in sizes S-5X and in four colors).

33.

A cropped racerback tank available in 45 colors you’ll want to stock up on for your next at-home workout, STAT. Choosing just one might be difficult, so I suggest simply purchasing all 45.


amazon.com

Psst, reviewers suggest ordering a size up!

Promising review: “I now have this top in three colors — titanium, pink, and charcoal. I can’t say enough good things about it! So comfy, fits great, and it’s awesome to work out in. plus it looks great. Definitely plan on getting it in even more colors!” —Clara Everett

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes S-L and in 45 colors).

34.

A jersey knit T-shirt dress you can wear with sneakers for a more casual look *or* dressed up with your highest heels for a night out on the town. Sound it out with me: v-e-r-s-a-t-i-l-i-t-y.


Amazon

Get it from Amazon for $9.58+ (available in sizes 1X-7X and in four colors).

35.

Danskin bootcut yoga pants that reviewers swear can be thrown in the wash approximately 130,000 times, and they’ll consistently emerge from the laundry room looking just as they did when they were first ripped out of their packaging.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I love these pants! The fit is sleek but not as form-fitting as leggings, the fabric is heavy and has a bit of a drape, and because the logo is up near the waistband, it is easily covered by a top so I feel OK wearing them for on the daily versus as just workout wear. I also like the wide waistband because I am not constantly having to pull my pants back into place every time I stretch. As for care, I wash them normally with other dark items, but I let them line dry vs using the dryer (as I would with lingerie) to preserve elastic properties.” —Red Mre

Get it from Amazon for $17.70+ (available in sizes XS-3X and in three colors).

36.

A V-neck tunic top you can pair with leggings, denim shorts, the trendy culottes you got on clearance — basically, it goes with anything.

37.

And, last but not least, a waffle mid-length robe for anyone looking to lounge in luxury! Your weekend-long conspiracy-theory-videos-on-YouTube binge can now be considered a fancy occasion. Chocolate on your pillow sadly not included.
