    Price: $19.96 (available in sizes XS-XXL and in four colors)

    9. A drape-front blazer because you're a boss and your wardrobe should reflect that.


    Promising review: "This is such a great blazer! It's made of quality material and fits perfectly. It is super comfy for all-day wear. I wore it with skinny trousers and a flowy tank for a work meeting, and so many people asked where I got it— proud to say Walmart, $25! I hope it holds up and comes out in more colors!"—Jax

    Price: $24.94 (available in sizes S-XXL and in black and blue)

    10. A pair of black pants that look super nice but are also super cozy because it's 2019, and we can have it all.


    Promising review: "These are fantastic and modern looking. I had to go down a size. These are my staple pair of black pants that I wear all the time. I just went back and bought more. They are looser on me than the model. The ankle isn't that tight. They're just a nice very flattering pair of dress pants. The only downside is no pockets!" —Caliope

    14. A mule for when you want to ~slip~ into something a little more comfortable, but still want to look put-together.


    Promising review: "These are such a great buy at $39!! They look and feel like real leather. They look much more expensive than they are and are so cute!! They're perfect for fall!!" —GBS

    Price: $38 (available in sizes 6-10 and in taupe, cognac, and black)

    15. A classic jegging that'll be your go-to pair for basically forever. You seriously can't go wrong with a pair of jeans that fit you oh-so right.


    Promising review: "These jeggings are great! They are very soft and do not feel tight to pull on. They have a lot of stretch to them but they still have structure. The length is good and a little bit generous. I will buy another pair." —CMTater
