The Amazon Reviews on These Trendy Items Are Convincing Me to “Add to Cart”
I’ve been an intrepid online shopper since, well, the invention of online shopping. But I’m also the first to admit that it can be a tricky task, especially when it comes to clothes, shoes, and accessories. Besides the obvious—no virtual dressing room!—you also can’t inspect the quality of what you buy until it arrives. But that’s where the product reviews come in. Your fellow shoppers have your back, and they’re there to let you know what’s worth buying (and, perhaps more importantly, what isn’t).
This season, I was determined to buy an edit of the season’s best trends for the right price, from cozy oversize sweaters to boots I can walk in all day long. Naturally, I scoped Amazon Fashion for my mission and found 22 on-trend, budget-friendly pieces I’m positively obsessed with. Scroll on for the items I’m adding to my wardrobe, all vetted by fellow style-minded Amazon shoppers.
This pastel sweater-vest is a little bit Chandler Bing, a little Cher Horowitz, and all the rage. “Super cute and a great way to add pattern to a simple outfit,” wrote one shopper of the one-size-fits-most piece.
Along with all of TikTok, we’ve been obsessed with lug-sole boots lately, so we just might need this Sam Edelman style in all eight colors. And good news if you’re worried about comfort. One intrepid reviewer reports, “I thought these wouldn’t be really comfortable at first and I’d have to break them in but they were awesome from day one.” Bless!
This set—which comes with the cropped tank, wide-leg pants, and jacket—is a fraction of the price of similar athleisure looks and will look completely adorable for chilly winter nights. Amazon shoppers are so into it, they’re snapping it up in multiple colors—and styles. “I’m obsessed. Will probably buy the shorts version too!” wrote one buyer.
It’s officially the season of the shacket, and this wool-blend topper is the perfect addition to any cold-weather layering wardrobe. It “feels like a fleecy blanket,” according to reviewers, who also noted that “you do not need to size up for an oversized look.”
The knee-high boot is back in full-force this season, so there’s no time like the present to add a classic riding boot to your collection. “I love everything about these boots from the color to the quality to the fit,” wrote one Amazon shopper of these leather boots, who added that “They are fantastic especially for the price.”
Pardon moi? Did you just get back from a trip to Paris? These tailored wide-leg pants will suggest as much—and they come in a whole slew of colors. Plus, shoppers love their flattering fit, with one writing, “I have a booty, hips, and thick legs and these pants don’t add too much bulk (so important!).”
JW Pei’s trendy vegan-leather bags are on the arm of every cool girl for a reason, and the rave reviews speak for themselves. “This bag is so gorgeous in person,” wrote one reviewer, who added, “The quality is amazing and I love that it comes in a box and with a dust bag.”
This vegan-leather shacket is maybe the single coolest piece you’ll pick up this season, and we love it worn as either a shirt or a light jacket. “It is butter soft, the fit is true to size, and I am really looking forward to wearing it,” raved one reviewer, who added she’s already buying it in another color.
We already wrote a love letter to cloud coats this season, but if you need a reminder, the casual, more lightweight puffer has been our new go-to. This cool style comes in 13 colors and is sized for layering. “I have room to put on a nice medium-weight knit sweater underneath for a great layered look without looking stuffed,” wrote one happy buyer.
These affordable, not-too-high cowboy boots have earned the seal of approval of shoppers, who rave about the quality and design. “Perfect color and height, heel and shaft,” wrote one reviewer, while another assured they’re “plus-size friendly.”
The puffer is still going strong, and this on-trend velvet version looks approximately 500 times more expensive than it is (rough estimate). And the quality is top-notch, too. “I bought this puffer jacket for my trip to Vermont and it kept me so warm in 20-degree weather,” raved one buyer.
This denim shape is so of-the-moment your skinny jeans are practically in hiding. And this style is earning raves for both quality and fit. “I had been looking for a balloon jean and was happier with these than a pair I tried on that was almost four times as expensive,” wrote one reviewer.
The right pair of sunglasses can instantly transform a look, and that’s exactly what these rectangular frames do. Even better, they come in a set of two, so you’ll always have the perfect pair. “Okay I bought this set for a fashion statement but they are so well made I wear them every day,” admits one of the over 9000(!) five-star reviewers.
Half-zips are still having a moment, so get comfy in this shaker-knit sweater. Shoppers are snapping up all five colors—and fast. “I told my husband that I am never wearing any other sweater. It’s so cute,” wrote one superfan.
The chunky-hoop trend is going strong, and this set passes the test of being chic, affordable, and highly reviewed. “These are by far my favorite pair of earrings!” wrote one happy shopper, who admitted, “I was initially hesitant because I have a nickel allergy and a lot of cheap earrings irritate my skin, but these are just perfect in every way.”
As a society, we haven’t given sweater-pant their proper due—after all, they’re more polished than sweats and just as cozy. But maybe that will all change thanks to these knit wide-leg pants, which one reviewer says “exceeded my expectations. So much so that I ordered more in different colors!”
If you’re on the fence about these super-high-waisted Levi’s, just consult the (thousands of) ratings. “These jeans are perfect,” wrote one buyer, who added, “I have almost 20 pairs of Levi’s…and the ribcage jeans have so far been the absolute best fit.”
Not only is this cozy mock-neck the perfect knit for throwing on, oh, every single day until spring, but reviewers were also blown away by the quality. “I was impressed by the stitching and feel of the fabric—this was my first Goodthreads (Amazon brand) purchase and it definitely set the bar,” said one fan of the piece.
You can’t beat the price on this suit, which “looks luxurious and more expensive than its value,” according to shoppers. Plus, the pieces can be worn together or as separates with other items in your closet for extra outfit mileage.
Found: The perfect top for those days you want to wear a sweatshirt but still look like you tried. Amazon reviewers love it too, with one writing, “Great quality, very flattering and I love the puffed shoulders!”
Trust us—nothing instantly updates an outfit like these sheer ankle socks. Amazon customers seem to agree, saying they “fit like a glove” and are “so cute with heels!”
This slouchy sweater captures the season’s preppy vibe perfectly without being overly prim. “This is exactly what the description says,” wrote one reviewer, who said the piece “is going to be a huge part of my wardrobe this fall.”
