Ask any stylist for their must-have pieces, and they’ll typically point you in the direction of timeless staples that are comfortable, fashionable, and easy to throw on in a hurry. Another stylist secret? Amazon is a mecca when it comes to stocking up on these wardrobe essentials — and of course, the prices are unbeatable. That’s why stylists are obsessed with these chic, comfy pieces that look good on everyone and are under $35. From accessories like jewelry, hats, and socks, to all kinds of closet staples and chic, fashion-snob-approved pieces, this expert-curated list covers all the bases.

As someone who tries to keep a close eye on all the current fashion dos and don’ts, I can still get overwhelmed by way trends come and go, not to mention the endless options out there — especially on Amazon. Having insider tips from fashion experts and stylists is essential when it comes to distinguishing between Amazon’s most stylish fashion pieces and the ones you could probably skip. Not to mention, one of the greatest things about working with a stylist (and shopping on Amazon, for that matter), is their ability to mix well-known brands with under-the-radar names and indie designers you might not have known about otherwise. So, if you’re like me, you’ll want to bookmark this page; on behalf of The Zoe Report, I reached out to a handful of top stylists to get their shopping advice, and you’ll find their recommendations below.

Now get your cart ready, because you’re about to discover some expert-approved pieces you won’t be able to pass up.


A Staple Swing Dress You’ll Wear At Least Once A Week

This sleeveless swing dress can be styled for endless occasions. Style expert and wardrobe consultant Naina Singla says, “You can layer it with an oversized blazer — likely already in your wardrobe — and the whole look instantly looks elevated.” It comes in a basic black or navy, or you can take your pick from three beautiful and versatile prints: leopard, navy/red dots, or black with white tulips.

Amazon reviewers are so pleased with the fit, quality, and style of this set, one even came back to buy three more. “The colors are so bold and beautiful, and the fabric is comfy to lounge in, but the style is pretty enough for a get together,” one shopper raved.
