When I got this at a blogger event (in orange), I was really surprised at how it felt like a very sturdy, well-made top. It’s billed as a camisole but it’s got a pretty V-back and a thicker strap in the front to hide your bra, so I would wear this as a going-out top, personally. If you wanted to wear this under a suit, you could; I always like sleeves under suits, but that’s me. This top has come and gone in a bunch of different colors at Nordstrom (with lots of great reviews) and is now available there in blue and black. Over at Topshop there’s a couple more colors in regular, petite, and tall sizes. It’s only $30 at both Topshop and Nordstrom. Topshop Double Strap V-Back Camisole
Wow, I did not realize that the Ivy Park leggings line was so highly rated — people seem to really love them. This style particularly has “built-in opaque briefs” and “hidden interior shorts,” which is pretty cool. They’re available in sizes XXS-XL in black and dark gray at Nordstrom for $65.

Also at Nordstrom, Zella leggings in plus sizes have a lot of positive reviews.
I like patchwork jeans — I prefer them to embroidered jeans (like these), the other big trend. These are pretty affordable and there are lots of sizes (24-32, the equivalent of 00-14), and I like the distressing, too. They’re $74 at Nordstrom. Articles of Society Carly Crop Patchwork Skinny Jeans
Here’s a plus-size option.
This is a fun dress, and I think you could wear it a lot of places. It’s definitely for a certain time of the year, though — November through January and perhaps into February. But that’s why it’s 40% off: $82 down from $138. It’s available at Nordstrom in three colors, green, navy, and purple, and it has a lot of good reviews. Vince Camuto Burnout Velvet Sheath Dress
I’m obsessed with any top that has this thumbhole kind of sleeve because it’s a cool look. This rayon-blend shirt is very low cut, but it comes in a zillion colors and looks great for the weekend. It’s available at Nordstrom for $68 in sizes XS-L. Free People ‘Malibu’ Thermal Top
Here’s a plus-size option in the same rayon/spandex blend.
Update: the top is now marked down to $41 in the big winter sale at Nordstrom.
Huh: I have not noticed this highly-rated sandal before, but people seem to love it — and it’s available in a thousand colors (ok, at least 8), most on sale for at least 40% off. Yes please? (Also: warmer weather when I can wear these, please?) It’s also great to note that they’re available in sizes 4-12 (but only regular widths). They were $195 full price, but depending on size and color are now marked to $35-$195 at Nordstrom, Zappos, and Amazon; the pictured rose suede ones are $116. Via Spiga ‘Leesa’ Sandal
