There's no time that I don't want to go on a little bit of a shopping spree and snag some new clothes. If you're with me, then this list is for you: it's the perfect blend of clothes that will seriously improve your wardrobe (I'm talking staples like a solid tee shirt) and pieces that are straight up fun (yes you do need that over the top cocktail dress, and yes you will wear it). Oh, and we've found a few truly impressive dupes for designer products that are wildly popular right now: trust me, you don't want to pay designer price when you can get something that looks just as good for a fraction of the cost. If you're ready to treat yourself, let's get shopping! It's just like the days of being a teenager in the mall except you don't have to walk and now you've got a credit card.
We hope you find these products as awesome as we do. Just an FYI: We are a participant in the Amazon affiliate program, and Brainjolt may receive a share of sales from links on this page. Prices on Amazon fluctuate so anything mentioned below might change as soon we publish it!
Snag This Designer-Inspired Scarf
Burberry fanatics, eat your heart out! You can top off a cardigan or jacket this fall and winter with this Burberry-inspired scarf that works for all genders. It's also available in other fun patterns like a gray tartan and a mint plaid, among others. The Burberry version will set you back nearly $500. This Amazon dupe is a fraction of that at just $15.
This Cozy Knitted Cardigan is a Must-Have Layer
This stylish "grandpa" cardigan is perfect for when the weather turns cooler, and the cozy knitted detail is amazing. Layer it over tanks, tees, and even cropped yoga tanks when you need a little bit of extra warmth and comfort. Nothing makes me feel cozier than an oversized sweater, and this is IT. "Love it!! It's not heavy but not lightweight! Super flattering! I tend to run hot but I can wear a tank top under it and be totally fine!" - Miss V.
This Kendall Jenner-Style Black Skirt for A Fraction of The Pricevia Amazon
If there's one thing Kendall Jenner knows, it's fashion, and the model's split black skirt can be replicated with this lookalike outfit from Amazon. This comfortable high waist skirt has an elastic closure and is perfect for working in an office or going out with friends. I'm always here for a basic that's got a little something extra, and this skirt is 100% it.
This Corduroy Button Down With Stylish Color Blocking
To be completely honest? I'm kind of obsessed with this color-blocked shirt. Imagine yourself wearing it with leggings or a pair of skinny jeans, and I think you'll understand why I literally just added it to my cart. I'm also in love with the fact that it's corduroy. "The material is pretty thick and sturdy," raved one reviewer. "Very nice quality."
This Faux Wrap Dress is Absolutely Gorgeous
I love the look of wrap dresses but it's so hard to keep them closed without a lot of help from pins or hooks that might not be included with the dress. This faux wrap dress solves that problem and gives you the look you want without the hassle! Plus it can be styled in all kinds of ways: check out that jacket and boots combo!
This Skirt Can Be Worn With So Many Different Outfits
The 70s had some of the best fashion of all time (this is a fact, you can't change my mind). Who doesn't want bell-bottoms and floral everything? I know I do. I think this skirt is very reminiscent of the era, so I'm totally digging it. Pair it with a lace or floral blouse, and you will be feeling totally groovy. Or wear it with a simple tee and thigh-high boots for a more modern look. I love the fall vibe of this burnt orange color, but it comes in plenty of colors too.
Ye, These Slides are a Crazy Good Dupe
Can someone explain why anyone would pay over $200 for Yeezy slides when slides like these exist? The ergonomic design fits your foot's curve perfectly, while the thickened, soft sole makes them comfortable af. One Amazon user even compares them to walking on marshmallows. And since this look is so popular right now, you can wear them in public for ultimate comfort.
This Sleeveless Vest Is Wildly Versatile
The great thing about knit vests is that they can be worn solo as tops, or worn over T-shirts or shirts. If you like a preppy streetwear look, this is a must-have item. I personally am in love with the adorable and off beat patterns they have available, which put an extra twist on the prep style. It can be worn to the office or worn casually on the weekend with jeans and either way you'll be going out in style.
These Nude Open Toe Pumps Are a Perfect Basic
Nude pumps are a must-have for every girl's wardrobe because they are easily transformed from casual to glam, depending on your outfit. From jeans, to dresses and skirts – these 2.75-inch heels will take you from day to night in one swift step. You can choose from Nude Suede or Nude Pu, depending on whether you prefer a matte or soft finish on the fabric. I like to keep these in my office so I can wear comfy shoes on my commute and still look put together during the work day.
This Shift Dress Is A Beautiful Basic
One of my favorite types of clothes is a basic dress that can stand on its own in the summer but get layered in the warmer months, which is why this shift dress is on my wish list. It's such a cute mini dress for lunch with friends or a date night. It goes with tennis shoes or heels depending on the occasion and it's super comfortable. Plus, there's even a 30-day money-back guarantee offered on Amazon, in case you change your mind.
This Oversized Cropped Sweater is Ideal for Coffee-Sipping Posts
Influencers love wearing oversized sweaters with jeans or shorts as they sip on their daily coffee. And this cropped sweater is ideal for such a post, or whether you're at home relaxing on the sofa. The knitwear comes in different colors and unique patterns so you can decide what suits you best. And it's so dang comfy.
This Workout Set Comes In Trendy Colors
Coral, purple, sequoia — this workout set comes in so many trendy colors you might even grab more than a few. The high-waisted leggings have a light slimming effect, helping to streamline your figure at the gym. Plus, reviewers wrote about how it fits true to size. I'm always looking for solid workout gear that will hold up to serious usage, and this set fits the bill.
This Tummy Control Shapewear for Unforgiving Dresses
Most of us need a bit of shapewear from time to time, especially if we're wearing sheer evening dresses that are unforgiving. This tummy control shapewear is my go-to because it's seamless, super comfortable and a great price. It comes in beige or black depending on what kind of outfit you're wearing it under and it's so popular that it's an Amazon's Choice product.
These Earrings Are So Dainty
I've always loved the look of dainty jewelry, yet I never really wore it until the last year or so. Once I realized how put-together it makes you feel, I was obsessed. Whether you're just starting in the jewelry world or you just want to add to your collection, these earrings are a great start. I'm basically never taking them off.
Be Better in Bodycon
I can't let this list go by without throwing at least one bodycon dress in here. This one, in a soothing sage green, is simplicity defined. It's made of a light ribbed knit fabric and has adjustable drawstrings on each side so you can make it shorter or longer depending on your sass level at the moment. I love the look of this style, which is just screaming for a statement necklace or some cute layering with a bulky jacket.
These Flats Go With Pretty Much Anything
If you're in the office every day, then you're probably familiar with business-casual attire. As much as I'd love to wear chunky platform sandals to work every day, I know it's not practical for most. But who says work attire has to be ugly? These flats are a modern take on the classic style and can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the occasion.
This Casual Scoopneck Tank That's Easy To Layer
This scoop-neck tank isn't just perfect for the summer — you can also wear it as a base when creating layered looks in the fall. The cotton-polyester blend feels oh-so-soft against your skin, and it even comes in eight colors. My favorite? The charcoal you see above, or the dusty shade of pink. I've actually snagged a couple because it's such a great staple piece.
Go Fully Floral With an Easy to Wear Jumpsuit
Here's a great option for my gals who have a preference for pants. This strapless floral jumpsuit lets you show off those gorgeous collarbones but keeps everything else safely tucked away. The wide-leg design skims away from the body, which makes you look thinner, and the relaxed fit means you'll be cool and comfy wherever the day takes you. (Don't forget the pockets!) I wear mine all year round because it also looks fabulous with a sweater over it.
I'm Obsessed With These Boho Pants
Wear these boho pants with a crop top, or even tuck a tank top into them. You can also wear it with regular tees, as I'll throw them on with one when I'm chilling around the house. They're even great for working out, and will make you stand out in your yoga studio (who needs Lululemon?).
Stuck in the Midi With You
This strappy midi dress is a perfect choice for an easy to wear dress that looks totally put together. I'm a big fan of the rose purple shade, but you can't go wrong with any of them, from sapphire blue to dark gray (seriously, who doesn't love jewel tones?). The blousy top makes it look like two separate pieces; only you'll know the difference.
This Comfy Tank is Great for Layering and Pretty Much Everything Else Toovia Amazon
I wear more tank tops than I care to admit: it doesn't matter what the temperature, those bad boys are great for layering. I'll throw this tank top on with a flannel to take the dog for a walk, or even with a sports bra if I'm heading to the gym. It's made from 100% cotton, so don't even think about it making you sweaty — and it's even tag-free to prevent that annoying itch. Plus, the wide straps hide my bra.
These High Waist Leggings are Fashionably Reflective
With contoured stripes that reflect light, these leggings keep me visible whenever I'm running early in the morning. Granted, that doesn't happen too often (read: ever) — so mostly I just like wearing them around the house, or to the gym. They're also soft, stretchy, and don't become transparent when I bend over (the ultimate test for any leggings).
These Sleeveless Tunics Are So Pretty With Shorts or Pants
Here's another great piece for fair weather! This casual v-neck sleeveless tunic is versatile and flowy, with a vibrant print and soft fabric that has some stretch to it. The tunic is also designed to be slimming on your figure and pairs great with a nice jacket or pair of yoga pants. I love having solid colored shirts that have a bit of interest in my closet so that I can easily add pizazz to an outfit.
These Cat Eye Sunglasses for Retro Vintage Shoots
These vintage retro sunglasses are a hit on social media and they also protect your eyes with UV400 protection. They come in a range of colors, but my favorite is the pink frame with brown lenses. They're basically the best accessory for any outfit because protecting your eyes is a must and they make you look fantastic.
These Loafers are So Incredibly Comfortable
If you're on Instagram, then you've probably seen at least one influencer share the Prada loafers or the Zara dupes.They're all the rage right now. And while I did hate them when I first saw them, they're growing on me. In fact, I've been eyeing these loafers for myself. They look like they are designer-made without the $500 price tag. Oh, and they look cute with basically any pant or short.
Halt For This One
Halter neck, button-up keyhole back, elastic waist, ruffles, floral print ... do I have your attention yet? This stylish romper is packed with fashionable goodies whether you purchase it in the black and white pictured or the chic orange floral. Available in sizes up to XXL, this one is part of Amazon's Prime Wardrobe, which means you can try it for free for seven days before committing. If you're not sure you're a romper person, this is the perfect place to start.
Jump for This Jumpsuit
This striped jumpsuit has the look of a two-piece outfit in a much-more-convenient one-piece style. You can show a little skin without divulging too much and the length, according to reviewers, is perfect for adding a pair of heels. (Might I suggest red with the one pictured above?) One reviewer was pleased enough to say, "It hugs my curves in all the right places." Get it, girl.
This Practical Underwear Is A Must-Have For Comfort
These thongs are the most breathable, lightweight, and comfortable underwear I've ever owned — period. In fact, they're the only underwear I'm willing to wear when it's really hot outside, as they're also really great at wicking away sweat. Honestly I wear them as often as I can: subpar underwear is a no thank you. If there's one thing you grab off this list, make it a pack of these.
Yoga + Sweats = A Winning Combo
No one has made a bigger deal over pants since MC Hammer made harem pants famous in the late 80s and early 90s. These are baggy, but maybe not MC Hammer baggy — just comfy baggy, O.K., but deliciously so. Both the waistband and ankles of these lounge joggers are banded, which creates a more finished look but doesn't cut down on the comfort.
This Lace Off Shoulder Mini Dress is Event-Worthy
Do you have a wedding invite coming up? Take notice - this lace mini just could become your favorite event dress ever. You'll be able to bare your shoulders in the subtly sexy design, so this is a natural for date nights, too! If you're throwing a low-key wedding of your own, it also comes in white which would make the sweetest casual wedding dress. The best part is you can style it in a dozen different ways to get some seriously different looks.
This Flowing Top is Your New BFF
Let me introduce you to this pleated tunic top which was just made for your favorite pair of leggings (that's a sentence I love to read). Available in short- or long-sleeved versions, this shirt has a fit-and-flare styling with subtle pleats at the top just under the scoop neck. I love the bright royal blue, but it also comes in a couple of cute paisley prints and florals.
Are Those PJs You're Wearing?
Listen, there are some days that I just want to stay in my pajamas. But, they also look like pajamas, which is a no-go. This loungewear set gives off all the PJ vibes, without any of the judging stares from your significant other or roommate. A matching shirt and bottoms, you could totally wear this during a Zoom meeting or while taking out the trash and no one will be the wiser.
These Socks Are Made With Breathable Cooling Panelsvia Amazon
I like to wear high socks when I go running, and these ones help keep my feet from turning into total swamp monsters. Trust me — Shrek ain't got nothin' on these babies after even the lightest jog in warm-ish weather. But since these socks are made with breathable cooling panels, my skin has room to breathe — and the bottoms are even cushioned for extra comfort.
You Need This Regal Cocktail Dress
If your aim in life is to look as regal as Meghan Markle, then this dress will do the trick: it's an amazing dupe for the gorgeous green number she wore. It might not be the same designer worn by the Duchess of Sussex, but it sure looks just as stylish. I found this elegant mesh bodycon pencil dress on Amazon and managed to recreate Meghan's look at an affordable price.
You Can Conquer the World in this Tee Shirt Dress
You've gotta admit the prints on these dresses are beautiful, if not at least eye-catching. And if you're not into it? You have literally dozens of other options to choose from — including solid colors. Plus, the hint of spandex gives it some stretch so that it moves with you, not against you. I'll throw it on to lounge around the house, then add a jacket and some leggings to turn it into a cute going out look.
Recover From Your Workout With This Copper Fit Knee Compression Sleeve
Ok ok, so it's not exactly a clothing piece, but I promise you that if you're experiencing knee pain or irritation, you need to add this compression sleeve to your workout gear. Infused with menthol and energizing properties, this compression knee sleeve is designed to maximize recovery and get you back out on the court. Provides valuable joint support and relieves muscle pain from over-exertion.
This Basic Tank With a Fun Color Block
For less than $20, I was willing to take a chance on this tank — and I'm glad I did. The color block is seriously on-trend, while the racerback style looks cute with a sports bra at the gym. Or, I'll even wear it with jeans to grab groceries. I can never have enough tanks, and this one looks great on its own or as a layered piece.
