An oversized corduroy button-down shirt

It’s available in sizes S–XXL and in 37 colors.

Promising review:

“This totally exceeded my expectations. It’s super cute and stylish. The only issue is the arms are short! It’s not too bad though. Overall super cute shirt, I ordered more colors!” —Taylor

Old Navy

A long-line cardigan coat

It’s available in sizes XS–2XL, 2X–4X, regular, tall and petite lengths, and three colors.

Promising review:

“Classic fall jacket that can be dressed up or down. Has a nice lightweight feel for early autumn into early winter. Fits a little large so size down one. XS is about a size 6–8. Ordered black.” — Karyn O.

An oversize flannel shirt

It’s available in sizes XS–2XL and 18 colors.

Promising review:

“Super cute flannel to layer for fall outfits! The material is extremely lightweight, which is perfect because I live in the south where it’s hot nearly year round. I can get the trendy fall look without overheating lol I will be ordering more colors! I love it.” — Hayley Nicole

A cropped puffer vest

Reviewers say to size down for a cropped look. It’s available in sizes XS–2X and 20 colors.

Promising review: “I am absolutely OBSESSED with this puffer vest. It is lightweight and not overbearing, but at the same time, it keeps me warm and feels so comfy. I took the advice of other reviewers and ordered an extra small even though I’m usually a small, and I’m so glad that I did. I love the cropped look that the smaller size gives me. I will certainly be buying this in other colors.” — Lydia Spencer

An open-front blanket shawl

It’s available in 37 styles.

Promising review:

“I love this poncho. Quality of material is good. Love the colors. I purchased this for a trip. I wanted something lightweight, not bulky but would keep me warm on cool nights. It also doubles as a blanket when I am watching TV. I machine wash it, put in the dryer, and it still looks good.” — Damian Perez

A quilted fleece pullover

It’s available in sizes XS–XL and seven colors.

Promising review:

“I love this sweater!!! It has the coolest button detail that you can button all the way up or have loose like my pics, it’s incredible soft, and it’s amazing quality! I highly recommend this!! If you’re on the verge of sizes, just go up a size because you can’t go wrong with oversized right now!” — Stephanie Mason


An oversized waffle-knit top

I have this shirt in gray and green and it’s fantastic! It’s lightweight so you won’t find yourself overheating if you’re running around in it, but cozy enough that you’ll also feel snug as a bug! I lived it in all last winter and can’t wait to break it out for the fall. Definitely a piece worth adding into your loungewear wardrobe. It’s available in sizes 2XS–2XL and five colors.

Promising review: “This is my absolute favorite top from Aerie and I am so happy they brought it back! It does run big. I’m typically a large and I sized down to a medium and still have plenty of room. It’s a must have piece in my closet.” — Jenni

A padded tank

It’s available in sizes S–XXL and 20 colors.

Promising review:Honestly saw this on TikTok and contemplated getting it for a long time. I’m so glad I committed! It’s extremely comfortable. The padding is amazing so you don’t have to worry about a bra underneath at all. You can wear it with sweats or leggings to the gym or even dress it up for a night out. Considering more colors for sure!” — Kristyn Long

A flowy midi dress

It’s available in sizes S–XL and 20 colors.

Promising review:

“This dress appears way more expensive than the listing. It reminded me of something you’d find in a boutique. I wore this dress for my bridal shower and it was so comfortable! Dress is true to size and perfect for coverage when sitting (opening presents, etc). I highly recommend.” — Amazon customer

An oversized chunky statement-sleeve cardigan

It’s available in sizes S–XL and 11 colors.

Promising review:

“I. ABSOLUTELY. LOVE. THIS. SWEATER. Love love love it!!!! It’s worth every penny. The color is beautiful, it’s soft, I love the design, the fit, everything. I’m going to get more in other colors too. Pair it with a body suit and high waisted jeans and you’re ready!” — Kari


A cashmere cardigan embroidered with Mickey Mouse

It’s available in sizes 2XS–2XL.

An A-line overalls dress

It’s available in sizes S–XL and in 12 colors.

Promising review:

“I read about this in a BuzzFeed article that said best, cheapest things to buy on Amazon right now. I was skeptical because I’ve ordered from Romwe before and not loved their products (they were sooo small.) This fit as expected, and I got SO many compliments on it.” — Brandon Alexander

A chic sweater with an asymmetrical hem

It’s available in sizes XS–XL and 33 styles.

Promising review:

“Ordered a small in the white version of this sweater and holy cow! I intend to buy this in black as well, so impressed. This sweater is incredibly soft and stretchy and comfortable. It does run slightly large in my opinion, however, I wouldn’t order a size down. This has been washed several times since I ordered it and I am impressed with how it’s held up. 10/10 would recommend to a friend! Great value for the money spent.” — Elizabeth

A pair of pull-on Levi Strauss skinny jeans

They’re available in sizes 2–28, in regular, short and long lengths, two cuts and 18 styles.

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

A chiffon blouse

It’s available in sizes XS–2XL and 20 colors.

Promising review: “This is a really great item. It’s a very nice material, and the print is vibrant. It’s not very long so if you’re tall, make sure you’ll want to tuck it into something high waisted. The sleeves are just the tiiiiiniest bit short on me, but as I said, I’m super tall so I’m used to it. I definitely recommend this top!” — Jessica

A fuzzy V-neck popcorn sweater

It’s available in sizes S–XL and 15 colors.

Promising review:

“This is my favorite new sweater! The quality is amazing! It’s super soft and the color is a pretty taupe that goes well with everything. It’s definitely oversized, so order your normal size. I love the detail on the sleeves and the length is great. I’m tempted to buy the other colors now!” — Laura Chaffee


A pair of high-waisted leggings

They’re available in standard and plus sizes, 3 lengths and 25 colors/patterns.

Promising review:

“If you’re on the fence about buying these leggings, DO IT. I bought a black pair (plus size) to see how they’d fit and let me tell you! I have wide hips, big thighs, and a large behind, and these leggings fit perfectly! Even better, THEY ARE NOT SEE-THROUGH when I bend over!! I’ve *never* found leggings that weren’t sheer when I bent over before! I bought eight more in different colors and they all are the same quality! I love them so much that over a year later I bought two more black pairs!! I recommend these leggings to everyone I hear talking about the difficulties of finding good leggings. I swear I wear these to work three times a week, at least. I love them!!” — hali howard


A sweatshirt and leggings set

Rebdolls is a woman-owned small business started by Dominican Republic–born model Grisel Paula. This set is available in sizes S–5X.

A lightweight oversized blazer

It’s available in sizes XS–XL and six styles.

Promising reviews:

“I get so many compliments whenever I wear this coat. It always ties my outfits together and makes me feel spruced up. The weight is really versatile, too! It was a godsend when I went to a convention in San Diego. I could wear it over my sleeveless dress in the air conditioning or outside walking by the water and feel very comfortable. I wore it over long sleeved shirts and sweaters with boots in the fall and winter and felt super cute. It’s held up well and I couldn’t be happier!” — Noneya

A lightweight maxi skirt

After putting this skirt in tons of posts, I finally caved and ordered one for myself. Reviewers love this skirt and for a reason; it really does live up to the hype! I paired it with a high-neck tank, a denim jacket, and sneakers and felt super cute when wearing it to my best friend’s baby shower. I love that there aren’t any buttons or drawstrings, you just pull this baby on and feel like royalty. The pleats are adorable, the ruched waist is fun, AND it has pockets!!! I’m literally going to place an order for another one as soon as I can decide between the green and the pink. Maybe I’ll just get both. It’s available in sizes S–2XL and 19 colors.

A pair of Levi’s overalls

They’re available in sizes XS–XL, plus sizes 36–44, and two colors.

Promising review:

“OK, I wore Levi’s overalls in the late 1970s. I still have a pair I saved for the embroidering I did on them. These are just the same! Fabric is stonewashed denim, light blue, soft without feeling worn. Nice hardware. They are perfect!” — J. Sierra


A “buttercream” turtleneck

It’s available in sizes 2XS–2XL and six colors.

A striped pullover

It’s available in sizes S–XL and five styles.

Promising review:

“This sweater looks and feels great and is so soft and comfy! Quality is so good! I sized up for an oversized fit. This style runs true to size. I machine washed on the delicate cycle, tossed in the dryer for a few minutes, then hung to finish drying, and the sweater still looks and feels exactly the same. Win! And the colors are so perfect for fall.” — annamaynard


Spanx faux-leather leggings

I splurged on these two years ago. I don’t know why I waited so long! They’re super soft on the inside, edgy on the outside, and just freakin’ fabulous. If I venture to any family gatherings this holiday season you better believe you’ll find me in these bad boys. I love pairing them with an oversized sweater for a look that’s stylish but still cozy. Available in sizes XS–3X.

An oversized knitted sweater vest

It’s available in sizes S–L and 14 styles.

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

An oversize linen jumpsuit

It’s available in sizes S–4X and in nine colors.

Promising review:

“These are too perfect for words. I’ll be buying the other colors as soon as possible! They are super comfortable and extremely versatile. They’re great for yard work, casual events, cute swimsuit coverup, and more. These are going to get so much wear!” — Cara

An oversized knit cardigan

It’s available in sizes S–3XL and 27 colors.

Promising review:

I have these cardigans in three different colors, need I say more? They are thick and heavy, which I like because I bought them for winter, but since it’s cotton, I feel like they will be comfortable in spring and fall too. They keep their shape and quality after washing. For sizing comparison, I have them in S, and I usually wear US S in tops.” — Anonimous

It’s available in sizes S–2XL and 10 colors.

Promising review:

“It’s super cute, comfortable, and I received a ton of compliments on it. I ordered a medium but could have gone with a small. Ordering another color because I liked it so much.” — Amber Nelson

BFFs and Babes

BFFs and Babes is a woman-owned small business that sells customized apparel for both adults and kiddos. I have so many beloved items from them that I’ve truly lost count. This one’s available in sizes S–3XL.

Promising review: “Love this sweatshirt! It’s incredibly comfy and I get complimented on it constantly. I’ve worn it with sweats, but also love to dress it up and wear it with jeans and a collared shirt underneath.” — Megan

Girlfriend Collective

Girlfriend Collective’s lightweight leggings

They’re available in sizes 2XS–6XL, two inseams and three colors.

Promising review: “These are so comfortable! So light and such good quality. They are extremely soft and stretchy and basically feels like I’m not wearing anything! The seam at the waist is a little tighter than I was expecting but it’s not uncomfortable. Not tight like compressive but I can still do a CrossFit workout in them and they stay on. I also just traveled 30 hours by plane in them and was so comfy the whole time! Love the FLOAT collection.” — Antonia C.

A dress with delicate embroidered sleeves

It’s available in sizes XS–2XL and 14 styles.

Promising review: “This dress is SO CUTE!!! I love the sleeve details and it looks really pretty in person. The dress feels soft and it’s really comfortable. This dress is super cute to wear out with your girlfriends and it’s really affordable. It fits true to size and I would recommend this dress. It’s really easy to steam iron as well.” — Katy Mospanyuk

Heather Braga / BuzzFeed / Hill House Home

A Hill House Home nap dress

I have the Ellie Nap Dress in two styles (navy poplin and botanical garden crepe) and absolutely adore them. I feel super comfortable in them and, honestly, like a princess! I get tons of compliments whenever I wear them (a little flattery never hurt anybody) and might just order another one. They’re available in sizes 2XS–2XL and 15 styles.

Promising review: “The Ellie Nap Dress is perfection! After about a year of Instagram telling me I needed a Nap Dress, I finally took the leap after having an emergency appendectomy. The dress was so comfy for recovery… and just about everything else! I own about a dozen of them now (and counting…). I’ve worn my Ellies for napping (duh), to work basically every day, out for girls’ night, around the town in NYC, on airplanes, on the beach in Aruba, etc. It’s perfect for just about any occasion, and SO, SO comfortable!” — Michelle
