amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I love this set! Every time I wear it, I get compliments from friends. I also like how open and breathable it is. Texas summers are very hot, and I‘m not absolutely dying when I wear this! Very happy with the purchase.” —Erika V.

High-waisted bike shorts to take your chill Princess Diana–style vibe into another season — I’d like to think she’d approve of her classic look being given a pastel treatment.


Promising review: “I’m a runner, and these are some of the best shorts I’ve found. Not having a front seam is a game changer for me. They don’t rub funny or ride up and are super soft and comfortable. I’ve already ordered more pairs. I’m between a medium and a small, so I have both sizes and wear the smalls on runs and the mediums to the gym.” —Kerri

Get them from Amazon for $19.89+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and 45 styles).


A ruffled baby doll dress you can wear all year long — it looks just as lovely with a leather or denim jacket over it as it does on its own.


Promising review: “I love this dress! It fit perfectly! I am 5’10” and struggle [with] finding dresses that are not ‘too short.’ This was a perfect length. The bottom half of the dress is lined, which makes it completely opaque. It is a thin material that makes steaming extremely easy and fast. I worn this to an Atlanta Braves game in 100+ degree weather and was able to keep cool. Perfect addition to my wardrobe.” —karmen howard

Get it from Amazon for $26.99 (available in sizes S–2XL and six colors).


Pastel socks that you’ll be thrilled you purchased come summer when the air conditioner in your house is turned allllllll the way down. Your dad will have *no* problem freezing you out — but at least your toes will be warm.


Promising review: “These socks are perfect, much better than I expected. They are very soft, pretty pastel colors, and as others have said, they do not grip too tightly around the tops, so very comfortable to wear in bed. Keep your feet warm but not stifling. And they seem to wash well. I am so impressed [that] I am going to order a set for my daughter.” —Bette

Get a set of seven from Amazon for $14.90+ (available in 13 styles).

A pleated midi skirt in a flurry of pastel colors that you can count on to make you feel like you’re the prize at the end of a rainbow (psh, forget that pot of gold).

A tulip-hemmed sheath dress that’ll look so chic with those new shoes you just picked up. Don’t you just love an outfit you can wear with sneakers, sandals, or boots?

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “This dress is phenomenal. Not see-through at all (I did buy black, though), and it is lined. It’s also extremely comfortable. I plan to dress it both up and down either for work or casual outings. I’ll admit I was skeptical, but I definitely won’t be returning this dress. And, as many have stated, it looks much more expensive than what it goes for. I do recommend going with your normal size. I can typically fit into both an S and an M, but M is my usual size for most clothing, and this dress fit great. Was not too tight at all — I fear a small would have been clinging to me.” —KG

Get it from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in sizes S–2XL, 2 styles, and 16 colors).


Opaque leggings you’ll find yourself gravitating to every day as they’ll easily go with pretty much all of your cold weather wardrobe. Sweatshirts? Yep. Sweaters? Sure! Jackets? Also, a yes.

amazon.com, amazon.com

I am wearing these leggings right now as I write this. They are soft, not too thick, and are not at all see-through. In fact, the only thing I asked for last Christmas was three pairs of these leggings — and urged my mom to get them for my sisters as well. I’m a big fan!

Promising review: “I’m officially obsessed with these tights! I am ordering them in every color. They are seriously the softest fabric I have ever worn, and the sizing actually fit really well. I was a little worried about the sizing because I am typically an XS or small, but these really couldn’t have fit any better, and they are so comfortable!” —Tonya

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in one size and plus size and in 22 colors).


A cropped tie-dye tee featuring an array of pastel colors that you can count on to perfectly pair with your favorite jeans in the spring and cut-offs in the summer.

American Eagle

Promising review: “This fits really well. I was expecting it to be super short, but I love the length, and the pattern/colors look great. ALSO, I was very happy that the tie-dye pattern continues under the pocket, and there isn’t just a white gap under it.” —2021

Get it from American Eagle for $12.47 (available in sizes 2XS–L and two styles).


A midi dress with a cinched waist, a must-have if, just like John Legend, you “love your curves and all your edges.”

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “This will be a perfect spring/summer/vacation dress! I love the fit, and the fabric is light, soft, and flowy. The elastic sits on my natural waist and adds just the right amount of shape to the dress.” —J. Cole

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 29 styles).

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “These are my new favorite workout shirts. I use them for running and HIIT workouts. They are perfect for anything that involves sweating. I have them in almost every color. The price is perfect for what you get, and the fit is exactly what you expect. The material is thin, but I prefer that in an active shirt for breathability. These shirts are perfect for anything gym and outdoor activity related!! I really love this brand.” —JanetSnakehole

Get it from Amazon for $8.83+ (available in sizes XS–XL, in sets of 3 and 18 styles).

A high-waisted pleated skirt you’ll want to twirl around in like Beyoncé on her haters…to generate a breeze because, let’s face it, it’s hotter than hell.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Bought this for a trip to Italy and was AMAZED at the high quality. I’m a curvy girl and would normally get an XL, but after reading reviews about [the] stretchy waistband, [I] opted for the L, and it was a perfect fit. It hangs beautifully and is very flattering. Highly recommend.” —Dr. Shannelle

Get it from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 35 colors).


A tee made for proud introverts, because no one should be ashamed. We should all embrace that side of ourselves — crack open a book, turn on Netflix, and just STAY INSIDE. So glorious.

Get it from Femfetti on Etsy for $21+ (available in unisex sizes XS–2XL).


A ruffled miniskirt you can wear to show off a lil’ leg — it is spring, after all.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I have seen this skirt all over boutique websites for double the price. So happy I ran across this one instead! Great quality, comfortable and soft material, gorgeous pattern, pretty coloring! It is also a really good length as well! I definitely recommend this skirt!” —Hannah Tyler

Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes 4–10 and nine styles).

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I purchased a medium in the tie-dye blue and white set. The pants fit very nicely, and the shirt also fits great. Both pieces also mix and match with other items in my closet easily. The quality of the fabric is GREAT! I was very surprised to see the inside of the set has a nice soft lining, and the outside is very good soft fabric.” —Emerson and Amy

Get it from Francesca’s for $40.50 (originally $54; available in sizes S–L).


A flirty dress with a tie front and spaghetti straps you’ll love so much that you’ll want it in every single color.

amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “Love this dress. Pro tip: If you want your bust to look even better in the dress, get a push-up adhesive bra. Pull the ties across each other over the connecting part of the bra, and use two safety pins to hold [it] in place. THEN tie.” —Kay

Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 22 styles).

A cute tank with scallop details, in case the thought of wearing sleeves during the spring and summer makes you wanna scream.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I love that this top is super basic and can be worn with pretty much anything, but the scallop detailing and high neck make it cuter than just a plain tank crop. It does fit snuggly, but that’s the style I was looking for. If you are looking for a looser fit, or if you are well endowed in the chest area, you may want to size up. But regardless, the fabric is super stretchy and forgiving.” —Stacey Gebler

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes XS–L and in 33 styles).


A ruffled one-piece bathing suit that you can lace up in the back to ensure it fits as fabulously as you’ll look while lounging at the beach.


Promising review: “OH MY WORD. BUY IT, BUY IT, BUY IT!!! Worth every penny, and honestly way cheaper than you’ll find in any store! It’s conservative, yet still plenty sexy! I was nervous for the top to fit because the booty is always disproportionate to my top section. Fits JUST fine. Very self-conscious person speaking here, and I feel like a million bucks in this thing. Great quality, adjustable back to pull the top a smidge tighter (or let out), and the pleating on the tummy is just a fabulous plus. DO IT!!!” —Henry

Get it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes XS–2XL and 17 styles).


A maxi dress that’ll add a *pop* of pastel to your day without leaving you looking like an actual floral arrangement.


Promising review: “Alright people! This is it!! This dress is sooooo flipping cute! The bottom hem is on the floor. I put a small knot at the bottom, and it looked cute, but I’ll likely hem it — although, the right-length heels could really set it off too. The V-neckline worked for me with a regular bra, as well as a strappy yoga shelf bra. The body is ample, and the pockets are well placed, giving a look of sophistication. While the fabric is NOT cotton, it is lightweight with a hint of stretch for ease [with] pulling [it] over the shoulders. This would be great over a bikini, as well. I would recommend this for a cute summer look, just about any occasion.” —LacieThings

Get it from Amazon for $23.79+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 19 colors).


A tie-front romper complete with a fabulous bow that’ll remind everyone your presence is a present 😉.

amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “I LOVE THIS ROMPER. I would say it runs true to size. The arms are a little tight on me but not uncomfortable. I usually get black to be safe, and then I’ll buy more colors if I like something. I now own two other colors. The top part is perfect for all boob sizes. I did it with a cute bralette underneath, but honestly you could do a regular bra or nothing at all.” —E

Get it from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 17 colors/prints).


A two-piece knit set you can lounge around the house in while strategically planning which outdoor brunch to attend this weekend — bottomless mimosas or the one with the REALLY good avo toast? Time will tell.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “The quality of the fabric is great! It feels heavy, but it’s actually lightweight. Not sheer and still does a good job of keeping me warm when it’s windy. My favorite thing is that the sleeves taper at the end. Order regular size if you want [a] more regular fitted look. Size up one to two sizes if you want [it] oversized.” —A.King

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes XS–2XL and 26 styles).


A V-neck tank made of a super-soft cotton that you’ll likely never want to take off — luckily it comes in *so* many colors that you can buy enough for every day of the week (and then some!).


I have SO many of Madewell’s Whisper Cotton tees and tanks that it should be illegal. They are ridiculously soft and honestly go with everything! They’re casual but, honestly, if you wanted to dress one up by tucking it into jeans or shorts and adding a stylish belt, you totally could.

Promising review: “I wore it for the first time while hiking this past weekend, and it felt light, soft, and was comfortable during the entire time.” —Lonobon

Get it from Madewell for $14.50+ (available in sizes 2XS–2XL, 1X–3X, and 15 colors).


A striped cap-sleeve midi for those lazy days where you want to feel like you’ve stayed in the clothes you wore to bed. This dress will quite literally provide you with the experience of wearing a nightgown ALL DAY!


Promising review: “This summer dress is a must-have! I must have worn it at least once a week all summer long. It’s so comfortable, and the material is breathable…even on humid days. The pockets are ideal, and the flutter cap sleeves couldn’t be cuter. I wore it with white sneakers, sandals, and espadrilles, so it’s very versatile. Looking forward to pulling it out of the closet next summer.” —Nikki Scott

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in sizes 4–10 and six styles).


A reliable tee you can tie a cute lil’ knot in and call it *fashion* but in reality know you’re just wearing a comfy-cozy T-shirt.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Reviewers say to size up if you don’t like a snug fit.

Promising review: “I made sure to order up a size so that I could tie it up; I have a very short torso but love the loose-fit look. This was beyond my expectations. Super comfortable, I can dress it up or down, and it’s a nice lightweight material. If you are questioning buying it, don’t! Just get it.” —Kami Cowley

Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in sizes L–4X and 26 colors).


An off-the-shoulder dress to remind you that you ARE the main character (don’t listen to your siblings — you’re not just the anxious old sister that TikTok says you are).

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I bought this skirt in pink and am about to order it in black!!! I’m SO in love with how gorgeous everything about it is. It’s well-made; the details are very fine and not cheap at all. It’s so cute and vintage, and I get compliments every time I wear it.” —Gwen

Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in sizes XS–2XL and 13 colors).


An inspiring pastel-blue pullover for anyone who has always thought of Brandy as the perfect Cinderella (don’t even get me STARTED on Whitney Houston — the most flawless Fairy Godmother there ever was).

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I really love this shirt! I didn’t read the description properly, but I was happily surprised when I saw the back of the shirt was mesh. It’s lightweight and breathable. I ordered a small and probably could have ordered a medium but just for a little more length. The small falls right under my belly button which is fine. The material is really nice too. I’ll definitely be ordering a few more.” —Amazon Customer

A puff-sleeve pastel maxi dress that’ll provide you with the utmost comfort while also leaving you looking like an elegant star of a Jane Austen film adaptation.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Ethereally beautiful!! This dress is absolutely LOVELY. It’s so lightweight, breezy, and comfortable. It fits perfectly, and the bodice has plenty of stretch so if you’re in between sizes, you could go either way. I actually sized down because I wanted to wear it on the shoulders and didn’t want the sleeves slipping off, but I didn’t have an issue with that at all. It’s wrinkly when it arrives, but a quick steam makes it look so much nicer and more expensive than it is. I got the sage green color, and it’s not see-through. It’s beautiful. (I actually returned it in favor of a color I thought I’d wear more, but if green is your fave then you’ll love it). Get this dress!” —Laura

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes XS–XL and 12 colors).

Get it from Forever 21 for $27.99 (available in sizes 2X–3X).


A gingham frock with tiers that would make Dorothy want one ASAP — her version is a bit dated at this point.


Promising review: “I LOVE this dress!! The material is so lightweight that it’s perfect for summer, and then the buffalo plaid will also look cute and trendy in fall with a jean jacket! Plus I LOVE that there are pockets. The dress is made really well; I was pleased to see it also had a lining, so it’s not at all transparent. I saw another review that said it ran a little small, and as someone between two sizes, I sized up, and I’m glad I did. I like that it is more flowy and comfortable-fitting! I will be wearing this dress all summer and then some!” —Theresa St Peter

Get it from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and four prints).

Couldn’t be me trying to decide between that pastel-blue Cinderella sweatshirt or the rainbow pleated skirt…
