While there’s something to be said for stiletto heels and a power blazer, the ultimate style hack is a comfortable outfit that looks good. These ‘fits are usually built over time by stumbling upon the rare perfect item — leggings that look like pants or a wrap top in supernaturally soft fabric — and then holding on to it for years and hoping it lasts for as long as possible before you have to start the hunt all over again. With comfort dressing on the rise, though, designers are churning out wearable pieces like never before. You don’t need to wait for fate to send the perfect going-out top your way, because I’ve rounded them up for you.

What you’ll notice are easy fits and plenty of stretch fabric, but not at the expense of shape. Dresses come in Mad Men shift cuts for roomy comfort, or they get their definition through a chic (yet stretchy) cinched waist. Tops may feature twist fronts and wrap or pleated necklines in jersey knits and Pima cotton, while pants will be sure to skew stylish and flowing or provide a high-kicking degree of stretch. You’ll also find some really great basics to level-up your dresser drawers, from sharp racerback tank tops to seamless underwear (as well as leggings with a ridiculous number of rave reviews). And, if it all gets to be too much, a matching workout set or two will make the outfit for you.

These cute, comfortable pieces hit every dress code — so you’ll never have to hoard your favorites again. They’re about to become your new normal.


A Collared Sweatshirt That’s *So* Soft

It’s hard to improve upon the sweatshirt, but Daily Ritual somehow managed to upgrade the athleisure staple. The cotton and modal terry has a downy interior finish that’s baby-soft, while a scaled-up fit and collar dresses up this cozy layer.

This Animal Print T-Shirt That Goes With Pretty Much Anything

You know a T-shirt has to be pretty amazing when there are nearly 14,000 ratings behind it. This leopard tee adds luxe pattern in a soft poly knit that feels like cotton to the touch. Its fit is boxy (but not baggy), and it knots so well. The sleeves are longer than usual — which are a welcome break from cap-style cuts — and a contrast ribbed neckline creates a nicely finished look. Tired of leopard?

A Tiered Miniskirt That’s Soft And Swingy

In a cotton and polyester blend, it’s light and airy in the summer with room for leggings when the temperatures dip.

  • Available colors: 24
  • Available sizes: Small — X-Large


A Modern Shift Dress With Just Enough Drape

This breezy swing dress has an A-line cut through the body that’s loose and comfortable, yet not at all baggy.

A Colorblock Babydoll That’s Fresh And Bright

A Seamless Bra You’ll Forget You’re Wearing

Some High-Quality Hipsters That Disappear Under Your Clingiest Clothes

In my opinion, sometimes looking good is about what you can’t see. These Calvin Klein seamless hipsters banish visible (yet, often unavoidable) panty lines with laser-cut edges for a totally smooth look under clothes. The only seams are tucked aside on each hip, and a cotton crotch gusset ensures you’re comfy all day. Make sure your set ships from Amazon to ensure an authentic CK product.

  • Available sizes: X-Small — X-Large


This Mesh Workout Tank With Subtle Detail

The microfine mesh in this workout tank top creates a subtle pointillism pattern that only pops when you layer a contrasting sports bra underneath.

  • Available colors: 6
  • Available sizes: X-Small — X-Large


The Infamous Tik Tok Leggings You Can *Finally* Score As Shorts

  • Available colors: 55
  • Available sizes: X-Small — XX-Large


A Strappy Sports Bra With Enhanced Breathability

There are removable pads if you want even fewer layers, while the front has thicker straps and a classic scoop for a secure feel.

  • Available colors: 18
  • Available sizes: Small — X-Large


The Razor-Sharp Tank Tops Worth Buying In Triplicate

A skinny racer front and long crop gives these tanks the Y2K edge that’s trending right now — proof that wardrobe basics don’t have to mean boring. In 95% cotton with spandex, they’ll hold their shape for long-running wear — because a basic may not be boring, but it should definitely last. Pick your favorite color-coordinated trio in staple shades you can wear on repeat.

  • Available colors: 4
  • Available sizes: Small — Large


A ‘70s-Chic Jumpsuit With Spaghetti Straps

Fluid and fabulous, this knit jumpsuit looks a lot dressier than it feels in a soft rayon blend. Spaghetti straps and a square neckline conceal a ladder-style tie-back that’s open without being exposed, and cropped legs add a bit of playfulness to the overall look.

  • Available colors: 3
  • Available sizes: XX-Small — XX-Large


An Easy Crop Tee You’ll Want In Every Color

A twist-front gives just enough shape to this boxy cropped tee, which has amassed a minor fan following from Amazon shoppers who praise it for being pretty dang cheap but cute and good quality. The polyester knit feels surprisingly like cotton and even the lighter colors are nicely opaque; I own this in white and skin-toned bras disappear underneath. Wear it for spin class or pair with a textured pencil skirt — it’s that versatile.

  • Available colors: 45
  • Available sizes: X-Small — X-Large


A Matching Workout Set That’s Equally Cozy And Stylish

Workout sets have become fashion’s new darling from statement suits to workout wear.

  • Available sizes: Small — X-Large


This Hippie-Chic Shirt Dress In Moody Florals

Paging Stevie Nicks: this easy shirt dress is anything but buttoned-up. Its artsy silhouette gets indie-style credit from the muted floral prints and elbow-length kimono sleeves with a shirred waist. It’s the kind of dress that looks pretty with wedges but lends itself equally well to Converse and ankle boots — and nearly 5,000 shoppers signed off on this pick in reviews.

  • Available colors: 7
  • Available sizes: X-Small — XX-Large


This Gorgeous Vintage Nap Dress

This vintage maxi dress is a true cottagecore vision. A square neckline and on-trend puff sleeves top the stretchy smocked bodice that lets you wear it off the shoulder for even more romance to your look.

  • Available colors: 15
  • Available sizes: X-Small — X-Large


The T-Shirt Dress With Statement Sleeves

The swing dress wears like a nightgown but looks infinitely more stylish. This spin on the style adds ruffled bell sleeves for a contemporary look with excellent pockets hidden on each side.

A Pretty Yet Comfortable Dress Shoppers Dubbed “Magical”

This is the kind of dress that totally transforms when you put it on, and it’s as comfortable as a tank top. The surplice bodice drapes from adjustable spaghetti straps and is stitched in place at the elastic waist over a flared knee-length skirt. The style is ideal for dressing up, which it does so easily — but in 95% cotton, it’s pretty yet casual under a cardigan as well.

  • Available colors: 40
  • Available sizes: Small — XX-Large


A Halter Maxi Dress With Major Impact

This halter maxi dress was made to turn heads. It has a tie waist and is tiered for a romantic look. In soft viscose, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by just how comfy this showstopper is and it comes in a number of prints like polka dot and florals as well as solid shades.

This Laser-Cut Bralette With A Strappy Back

Half sports bra, half bralette, all style: The Mae high-neck bralette has intricate cutouts and an unlined build for total ease that’s a lot more fun than most casual bras.

  • Available colors: 14
  • Available sizes: X-Small — X-Large


This Luxe Cropped Tee With An Open Front

  • Available colors: 4
  • Available sizes: Small — XX-Large


This Breezy Tunic With A Handkerchief Hem

This soft tunic tee is the kind of piece you can dress up with trousers, but it has the kind of gentle ease and length that makes it a natural over leggings.

  • Available colors: 43
  • Available sizes: Small — 6X

One customer wrote, “Literally ditching every other pair of jeans I have and stocking my entire wardrobe with these.” Levi’s jeans for only $25? Better stock up along with them.

  • Available colors: 8
  • Available sizes: 2 — 28 (short, medium, and long)


A Cotton Maxi Dress That Comes In Tons Of Floral Prints

This floral maxi dress is perhaps the most effortless piece to wear out of everything on the list — just look at that flowing skirt! The fully tiered hem billows out from an empire waist topped with thick adjustable spaghetti straps in cottage-core floral prints that practically beg for a sun hat and sandals. In 100% cotton, it’s going to be wildly comfortable and will only get softer with time.

  • Available sizes: Small — X-Large


This Sweater-Knit Tank For A Cozy Twist

In a sheer shaker stitch, this sweater camisole has a less expected finish that makes the basic tank feel elevated.

A Crop Top Sports Bra That Looks *Just* Like Pricier Options

The Lemedy sports bra has gained the attention of Amazon shoppers for its striking resemblance to iconic (and pricey) workout brands.

  • Available sizes: Small — X-Large
