    1. A blanket shawl you can throw over *literally* anything for a pop of pattern or an extra bit of warmth. Good for when your body has left the home but your soul is still on the sofa.


    Promising review: "The picture of the product provided by the company doesn't do it justice. It's much more plush knit in person then it looks pictured on Amazon. I received so many compliments when I decided to wear it out on the town instead of my jacket. I love it. I'm ordering another color right now." —Natalie Swift

    Price: $27.50 (one size fits all; available in four styles)

    2. A fleece zip-up vest for layering when it's cold, but not that cold. It's one of those wear-everywhere pieces (your morning run included).


    Promising review: "Great vest, fits true to size. Fits well, comfortable. I purchased another color previously and liked it so much I got a second one. Good quality, good price. I wear this for running in really cold temperatures, and around town/doing errands. The zip pockets are very handy."lizkins

    Price: $17.05+ (available in sizes XS–2XL, 1X–6X, and in 18 colors)

    3. A lightweight sweater dress you can wear alone, with leggings, or jeans for a wide range of cozy looks., Amazon

    Reviewers suggest sizing down if you want something more form-fitting. Order your regular size if you're into the slouchy look!

    Promising review: "This dress is really great quality! Some sweaters are itchy but this one is very soft. I am normally a size medium or large. This runs a little big. If you don't want it to be form-fitting then order your true size. If you want it tight, size down. I love it though!" —R. Aponte

    Price: $13.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 12 styles)

    4. A fleece pullover hoodie to prolong breaking out your coat just a little while longer. You also can't have too many hoodies. That's just science.,

    Promising review: "This sweatshirt is really pretty and very soft. A medium weight, not thin, and true to size. I'm going to order another one." —Sherri P Varnell

    Price: $25+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and in 29 styles)

    5. A lightweight mock neck sweater that'll magically make any outfit A) warmer and B) better. Layered under sleeveless dresses or crewneck sweaters, it instantly winterizes anything in your closet.


    Promising review: "This is a great basic for the price...the material is much softer and nicer than I expected. I am normally a small and only sometimes a medium, but I want this as a layering piece do I went for small and it is just right. The cream is a pure cream. I would definitely recommend." —ImpossibleGirl

    Price: $11.49+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in 11 colors, and in sizes 1X–6X in five colors)

    6. A collared button-up blouse to wear alone or under your favorite sweater for a classic, polished look. Bonus: if you get too hot and have to take the sweater off you still look put-together!


    A lot of reviewers recommend ordering a size or two up depending on your desired fit.

    Promising review: "This is a great shirt. It looks great on and has a great stylish look. You can dress it up or down. The sleeves are three-quarter length and rolled-up. They are adorable. The fit is small. I would order two sizes up. It looks just like the picture. I ordered two and will be ordering more. Great price as well. Light cotton but not at all see-through. Great shirt for any occasion." —MJ

    Price: $11.22+ (available in sizes XS-2XL and in 15 styles)

    7. A mock neck dress that transforms the basic layering top into (you guessed it) a dress! Throw a sweater over it and tights under it for a casual winter-proof look., Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought the 1X and it fits like it was made for me! I wore the dress to work with a pair of brown leather knee-high boots, and received MANY compliments. The fabric is a good quality. It's thick but still a jersey material. The turtleneck keeps its integrity all day. I hate when you wear a turtleneck and it gets droopy; this piece holds its shape. This dress is a MUST buy." —DeeDee

    Price: $29.40 (available in sizes 1X–3X and 7X)

    8. A faux fur vest that adds DRAMA to even the simplest look. If you're anything like me, you'll find yourself petting it all night. Sooooo soft.


    Promising review: "I decided to take a chance and order this vest. I ordered the large so that I would have the option of wearing a heavier sweater with it. It’s not bulky at all and the fur is soft. The lining is also well done and the chain hook on the inside back by the neck is a nice, believable touch! It’s so cute and appears to be a well-made garment. I plan to wear this with tights and boots and a wool fedora this weekend to a fun, local restaurant. I definitely won’t see this type of item on everyone else! Thank you! I’m pleasantly surprised for the price point!" —Robin

    Price: $23.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in three styles)

    9. A sleeveless turtleneck top for anyone who runs hot, but still wants to dress for the season. It's a great base layer for thick flannels, blazers, and cardigans!


    Promising review: "My new favorite fall top. Perfect for layering or wearing solo here in Arizona where I want something light but still seasonal. Material is super soft against the skin with a nice drape, but not clingy. I just bought another color because I just want to wear it all the time. Caveat, if you're looking for a warm winter turtle, this is not the one for you." —Cher in AZ

    Price: $9.16+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in six colors)

    10. A printed tunic blouse that's the perfect length to wear over leggings. Business on the top, (slumber) party on the bottom.


    Promising review: "Love it. Comfortable, slight stretch, easy to wash/dry, lightweight but not flimsy or clinging." —AMP

    Price: $9.15+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in six styles)

    11. A sharp blazer to wear over camis, blouses, or sweaters for an instant I-have-my-life-together look., Amazon

    Reviewers mentioned this blazer runs small, so consider sizing up!

    Promising review: "Absolutely love. The extreme stretch is super comfortable and makes it able to accommodate all kinds of unique body shapes. The material is thick and high quality/professional-looking, and will be a really good weight for the fall and winter seasons. Add with the low price that my size/color combo happened to be, I am like the happiest back-in-the-physical-office person around. It is just as comfortable as a COVID-19 work-from-home hoodie but makes me look awesome instead of like a slob. And it has pockets!" —/\mazon Customer

    Price: $51.37+ (available in sizes 0–10 and in two colors)

    12. A cozy knee-length cardigan that's described on Amazon as a "sweater coat," which really tells you everything you need to know about how cuddly and warm it is.


    Promising review: "I received this sweater yesterday and was pleasantly surprised at the quality for the price. I have a large collection of sweater coats, most of them far more costly or part cashmere. This sweater is on the thicker side and works for fall. I wore all day and not a wrinkle! Time will tell how long it lasts but I will definitely be purchasing more." —Love shopping

    Price: $35.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in six colors)

    13. An animal-print cardigan you can can toss on with anything for instant trendiness. Or button it up and wear it as a top!,

    Promising review: "This was way better than I expected! Thick material and high quality. It is so beautiful and compliments left/right." —K sauce

    Price: $15.99 (available in S–XL and in six colors)

    14. A pair of comfortable high-rise leggings to wear under dresses or to the gym. Hot tip for cold days — layer leggings under jeans when things get icy.


    Promising review: "Love love these! Perfect for running, general exercise, yoga, hiking or lounging. So comfortable and helped prevent/heal chafing I had from an 8 mile hike. I run and exercise every day. I have two pairs of these and I’m in love with them. Definitely my favorite workout pants. The pocket is great for my iPhone 6 and the waistband is very comfortable with some support for my tum. The material is thicker than other leggings but not hot. Not see-through." —Jen P

    Price: $20.45+ (available in sizes XS-XL and in six colors)

    15. A mid-weight utility jacket that's oversized enough to accommodate your bulkiest sweaters and hoodies. Plus, big pockets for all your stuff!, Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this oversized jacket. It's well-made and the color is nice. It has a nice heft to it as well. The only improvement I would suggest would be to use a heavier fabric for the internal pockets. I would definitely recommend this midweight jacket. It's perfect for cool evenings in the mountains or fall weather. 👍👍" —AZMA

    Price: $23.67+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in four colors)

    16. A cushy terry cotton sweatshirt perfect for staying in or heading out. Toss it in your bag as a light layer in case things get unpredictably chilly.


    Some reviewers suggest sizing up to get the slouchy look on the model.

    Promising review: "This top is so soft and just the perfect amount of weight to it. It could easily be sold at Nordstrom for $70. I’m 5’11 and it fits just like the model with a tad extra length in the back. There honestly is not a bad thing I could say about this! Run, don't walk to order yours!" —Alison

    Price: $12.99+ (available in 1X–7X and in three styles)

    17. A chic wrap sweater that makes a gorgeous top (I'm a sucker for a balloon sleeve). The adjustable waist means you can make it as tight or as loose as you want. Loose enough to wear as an unconventional cardigan, even!,

    Promising review: "This top is absolutely gorgeous. I purchased in black. It’s as pictured on the model but even better in person! Definitely department store quality, like something I’d find at Macy’s in the woman’s section. It’s a deep V-cut so I’ll be wearing a tank underneath. Super comfortable and can accommodate a larger size within reason. Arms are dolman and wrap-style closure to adjust size. Can’t wait to wear it out!!!" —ezralea

    Price: $21.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 11 colors)

    18. A merino wool sweater with a deep V-neckline to show off your layers. Colorblock! Mix prints! The world is your oyster.


    Promising review: "The sweater is very soft and lightweight. In a lighter color, I’d expect some sheerness. It’s perfect for layering. I have a full bust so sized up to a large. The V-neck is a nice depth. I’m happy wearing it to work or out and about with jeans. It’s a great closet staple. I’m intending to buy a few more colors." —Jennifer H.

    Price: $45 (available in sizes XS–XL and in eight colors)

    19. A plush faux shearling sweatshirt you'll probably find yourself reaching for all winter long. It's like a stylish blanket on your body!,

    Promising review: "I love how soft and comfortable this pullover is and that it has a bit of an edge with the side zip and collar. I ordered a medium and it fits perfectly. It’s become my go-to work-from-home top now that the weather is cold outside." —Sarah

    Price: $21.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 19 styles)

    20. A high-neck bralette that's perfect if bunched-up camisoles are your kryptonite. Also, a great option for keeping cool when you need extra coverage.


    Promising review: "The fit is perfect. It’s attractive, comfortable and any low fitting top will pair well with this bra. I’m so glad I purchased it and I already purchased it again. I fit a medium and I’m a 36C in bras." —Nycole

    Price: $16.50 (available in sizes XS–XL and in four colors)

    21. A simple yet versatile cable knit sweater so you can show up looking like the epitome of winter style. Also, a crewneck sweater + a collared shirt is just *chef's kiss.*, Amazon

    Promising review: "Very warm, soft, and cozy. It fit a little large, but it's really cute slightly tucked in the front with dress pants or jeans with a belt." —Amazon Customer

    Price: $23.80+ (available in sizes 0–18 and in three colors)

    22. A plaid flannel shirt that's WFH-approved. Comfy without being sloppy, flannels were destined to be layered., Amazon

    Promising review: "This shirt fits exactly how I was hoping it would! It’s longer and can be worn open or closed. When closed, it’s not tight and fits as it should, slightly loose. The material is very soft and thick enough to be worn in chilly weather. Very happy with this purchase and will likely purchase another in a different color!" —Jenna

    Price: $19.20+ (available in sizes XS–XXL and in nine styles)

    23. A simple long-sleeve top to instantly transform any short-sleeve T-shirt into a long-sleeve T-shirt. Wardrobe wizardry!


    Price: $22 (available in sizes XS–XXL in five colors, and sizes 1X and 5X–7X in six colors)

    24. A faux leather moto jacket that'll add instant edge to any outfit. Treat it like a cool blazer and wear it under your heavy-duty winter coat for extra insulation.,

    Be sure to double-check the size chart for your specific measurements! Some reviewers recommend sizing up, especially if you want to layer bulkier clothes underneath.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this jacket! It's very nice quality for the price and is much softer than other pleather jackets I've had in the past. It was also warmer than I was expecting, so that's a definite plus. It does run small. I'm typically a small/medium and the large fits me well with room for a sweater underneath. I would definitely recommend this to someone looking for a more affordable alternative to the leather jacket look." —Maya Shaw

    Price: $28.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and in 26 styles)

    25. A cozy puffer vest so you can show up as the layered-up style maven you were born to be.,

    This is a packable vest so it comes with a little drawstring carrying bag perfect for traveling!

    Promising review: "I love this vest!! It was the perfect powder pink/blush color and it matched my birthday outfit perfectly. It was lightweight and comfortable. I love the collar and pockets. Would order again!"—Deja G.

    Price: $26.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in eight colors)

    26. A sleeveless fit-and-flare dress that'll become an all-year-round staple. Go sleeveless in the summer and add your favorite mock neck top underneath when the cold weather comes through., Amazon

    Reviewers highly recommend sizing up for this dress!

    Promising review: "Navy blue isn’t really a color I’d wear but for the price and the quality...I’m glad I bought this piece! I was looking to add work clothes to my closet and I found this classy and simple dress. Just the right length and the neckline is great. The fit is flattering. For the measurements guide, I wear a 38B and 10–12 in jeans and ordered a size 14. Highly recommend this dress!" —Nèssie

    Price: $8.73+ (available in sizes 0–16 and in three colors)

    27. A versatile pair of jeggings in every color imaginable that look like office-ready pants but don't *feel* like it. Hoodies, sweater dresses, and tunics have found their match!, Amazon

    Price: 26.50+ (available in sizes 1X short–6X long and in 13 styles)

    28. A slouchy open-front cardigan for tossing over literally anything. Plus, POCKETS! Because who ever really knows what else to do with their hands?, Amazon

    Promising review: "This sweater is great. I need lots of sweaters because my office is so cold and I have been looking for a white one that is cute. I was worried it would be itchy but it isn’t. It is thick enough to keep me warm, but not too thick that I will get hot. I love that they have so many different colors to choose from. Now that I know it fits and works for what I need, I want to buy more in different colors! The pockets are also adorable. I’m glad they aren’t those little pockets that wouldn’t even hold anything. These can actually be used. Very happy with this product and will be ordering in more colors soon!" —Mike Bartock

    Price: $30.99 (available in sizes S–XL and in 11 colors)

    29. A sleeveless wide-leg jumpsuit that's adored by yours truly. It's very soft and versatile. Wear it alone, with a cardigan, or layered over a favorite T-shirt!,

    This jumpsuit does pill (as other reviews point out) but a session with my sweater shaver leaves it looking fresh again!

    Promising review: "Haven’t felt attractive in a piece of clothing since somewhere around the end of second trimester over a year ago! This is so cute and I get compliments every time I wear it. It has MASSIVE pockets (yes!!), and the drawstring waist helps it hang just right. The only reason I don’t own it in every color already is that the leg fabric is pilling REALLY badly. I’m worried it will wear out soon, but it is worth every penny in price per wear. I’ve worn it all summer." —Leslie Reads a Lot

    Price: $16.64+ (sizes available in XS–XXL and in five colors)

    30. An oversized button-up coat to top off all your layered looks! The boxy fit leaves plenty of room for shirts, sweaters, vests — your entire layering arsenal!, Amazon

    Promising review: "I am in shock over the quality of this coat. It is well made. Warm. Overall worth it! It is a lovely grey color, with quality buttons, lined on the inside. Perfect for layering, dressing up or casual." —Kristal Stone

    Price: $59.99 (available in sizes XS–XXL and in four colors)
