A sleeveless wrap jumpsuit that doesn’t have a favorite season. In fact, it loves to be worn throughout all of ’em: whilst stepping on crunchy fall leaves, to holiday parties with slingback heels, during romantic spring picnics in the park, and to summer weddings when the weather is best described as “hotter than Hades.”


Promising review: “Love this jumpsuit! Great quality and so soft/comfy but not too thin. It’s easy to get on and off which is a thing in jumpsuits LOL. Love the optional cleavage snap for daytime and there’s plenty of bra strap coverage. Planning date night now!” —Marcia 

Get it from Amazon for $59.90 (available in sizes XXS–3X and in two colors). 


I Dew Care Plush Party Lip Balm – it addresses chapped lips once and for all. This functions as a sleeping mask — apply this shea butter, cocoa butter, hibiscus flower extract, and vitamin C mask formula before bed and wake up to a nourished pout. No flakes. Ever again.

Promising review: “I try to stay away from concealer and foundation because of my acne and sensitive skin, so I was excited to try this after a friend recommended it. Long story short, it exceeded my expectations. Covers redness AND reduces the appearance of blemishes, plus it doesn’t clog my pores.” —ingridswim7

Promising review: “I love this product and I’m not one to wear much makeup at all. It looks and feels very natural and gives me a smooth and polished look without feeling caked on or heavy. I live in New Orleans and it gets HOT and HUMID down here. I can still wear this without feeling sticky and gross at the end of the day.” —Fix-It With Fran

Dr. Martens

These take a couple of wears to fully break in, but after that? It’s smooth sailing.

Promising review: “I have been a Doc enthusiast for about 25 years. I’ve owned at least 30 pairs and I have passed on my love to my daughter. She won’t wear any other brand either. Best boot on the market. Comfy, light, and almost indestructible. They go with everything.” —Diana S.

A pair of classic Chelsea boots – they epitomize the phrase “wardrobe staple.” These babies go with any outfit, contain a five-layer memory foam insole for maximum comfort, and their grippy outsoles mean no slipping and sliding on pavement. Ever.


Promising review: “I got a pair of these several years ago. I adored the way the look and feel. People always ask where they are from, because they are beautiful. I bought a second pair in the exact same color, because I love them so much I never want to be without them. Wear them all fall and winter. They go with everything.” —Anna

So go ahead and watch Titanic or walk your dog during a torrential downpour — black smudges gracing your under-eyes are officially a problem of the past. / Via @eyeko

Promising review: “I’ve tried a bunch of waterproof mascaras in the past, but it always inevitably gets into my contacts and burns my eyes — especially if I swim in saltwater. After reading a ton of reviews, I decided to try this Eyeko mascara and now I’m a believer. I went on a eight-plus hour boat tour in Mexico and even after swimming all day (and diving off the boat multiple times), my mascara stayed in place. It didn’t crumble, smudge, burn, or affect my contacts at all. It did take a while to remove, but that’s a small price to pay for something that actually works!” —Carrie

A pullover sweater – it is, and I cannot stress this enough, perfection in clothing form. The luxe material is super soft and made from recycled fishnets, it’s sweat wicking, plus the cinched-in waist adds an hourglass silhouette. There’s even matching pants if you’re interested.

Lezé the Label

Levi’s ribcage straight jeans that come up to — as the name would imply — your ribcage. These are ideal for anyone who prefers truly high-waisted denim. None of that “comes up underneath my belly button” nonsense.

Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed, Levi’s

Promising review: “I am an exclusively high-waisted bottoms person. No ifs, ands, or but(t)s about it, I refuse to wear anything else. I have some high-waisted jeans I love, but both pairs really just come up to my belly button, and it’ll sometimes pop on out if I’m wearing a crop top. No biggie, but I was looking for a pair that came up FURTHER. So I went into Levi’s last year and tried on just about every “high rise” pair in the store. Seriously. And these straight ribcage jeans were just the ticket. Stiff enough to look like jeans instead of jeggings, a slight crop and straight hem at the bottom to differentiate from my skinny jeans, and a SUPER-HIGH rise. Like my belly button is a full inch below the top of the jeans. It takes me a minute to get into them and button the button-fly, but that’s what ensures a nice fit for my waist-to-hip ratio, which *usually* results in the dreaded WAIST GAP. I love the color and the level of distressing (aka not much), and they make me feel like a ~cool girl~ when I really just about never feel like one. If you’re looking for super-high-waisted jeans that still…feel like jeans, I 100{adb1ce361e4d115852a5ecc77da1fcd21e68b5d23904b1abbfd33825d7fe0fb5} recommend these.” —Maitland Quitmeyer, BuzzFeed Staff

Get them from Levi’s for $98 (available in sizes 23–32, two lengths, and seven colors).

Mansur Gavriel

Get it from Mansur Gavriel for $695 (available in three colors). 


A gold vermeil ring inspired by everyone’s favorite flaky pastry, le croissant. In addition to having Paris at your fingertips at all times… This stunning accessory is bold enough to be noticed, subtle enough to wear with any outfit.


Get it from Mejuri for $95 (available in sizes 4–10). 


A slip dress crafted from 100{adb1ce361e4d115852a5ecc77da1fcd21e68b5d23904b1abbfd33825d7fe0fb5} sustainable-sourced silk so your bod can feel cocooned by luxury all day long. Throw in a stunning lilac color and bam, your quest for the perfect item of versatile clothing is over.

Get it from Baacal for $189 (available in sizes 10–22).


Solar Paint that’ll add subtle contour via a gel crème made of fancy Desert Milk (a melting pot of hydrating plant extracts). It’s easier to blend than the chalky bronzer powder you’ve been using since freshman year, plus it’s blendable with just a few dabs of your fingertips.


Promising review: “I was initially bummed to hear this product has some sort of shimmer to it. However, I’ve realized the very subtle sheen IS what makes it natural for me. I honestly can’t see the shimmer in this product, but what I do think it does is that it mimics the glowy-ness of the rest of my face, so it looks like the parts I’ve deepen in color is just my natural bronzed skin. I’ve tried matte bronzers/contours before thinking they would look the most natural, but it always looked the opposite in that you could see it was makeup as light shifted on my face — too one-dimensional.” —Paula

Get it from Glossier for $20 (available in four shades).


A denim bomber jacket lined with a shaggy collar because — what’s that? Did you hear that? The temps are dropping and the leaves are falling? Autumn is practically here. Denim jacket season is knocking at your door. Snag one that’s extra cozy (see below) in preparation.

Square-toe boots guaranteed to become your new IT. And by IT, I mean this is your new official go-to shoe — the kind of gorgeous thing that pulls through when you have five minutes to get ready and no patience., Amazon

Promising review: “Very comfy and great-looking boots! Just like the picture. The heel height makes me taller but isn’t too steep to walk naturally in. Zipper is smooth to pull up and it stays up and doesn’t creep down over time. Overall very happy with this purchase.” —Rebecca Henry

Get it from Amazon for $69.90 (available in sizes 5–12 and two colors).


Slipsilk scrunchies because it’s about time you break up with breakage. The smooth silk doesn’t tug or pull at your ‘do (they’re perfect for sleep and won’t cause those “my hair is tied too tightly” headaches!), plus they’ll last and last and last after months of constant use. Can your current hair tie do that? I mean, mine can’t.


Promising review: “I love these hair ties! They hold my hair well and don’t slip, and they are super cute and don’t damage my hair. Win win!” —nicknamesGabby
