With its batwing sleeves, medium stretch, and neutral color options, this acrylic fabric cardi layers effortlessly over tanks, tees, and dresses for a stylish finish.
The slightly oversized silhouette creates a laidback vibe that says “I threw this on and look casually chic” rather than “I spent hours fretting over this outfit”. In other words, it’s a throw-on-and-go staple that pulls your look together without trying too hard.
At only $19, you will want to scoop up this versatile number in multiple hues so you’re covered for those fall days abroad. Talk about value—your new favorite outerwear is here.

This toga cotton top is your new pre-fall weather wardrobe wonder.
Constructed from breathable knit cotton, it’s as comfortable as your favorite t-shirt but with a stylish drape that flatters your figure. Whether you tuck it in for a streamlined silhouette or leave it loose for an effortless vibe, this versatile piece is a blank canvas for your fashion creativity. And the stretchy fabric means you will feel as fabulous as you look.
When the temperature rises during the day, pair it with shorts for a flirty look, or style it with a maxi skirt for a bohemian goddess moment. However you wear it, this toga top is sure to become a staple for your autumn travel fashion rotation.
This knit maxi skirt is about to become your wardrobe’s MVP.
Made of a soft knit that flows and flatters, it features an alluring side slit that gives a glimpse of your leg as you walk, instantly elongating your silhouette. An elastic waistband means it’s as comfortable as your favorite PJ bottoms but looks polished enough to strut your stuff as you go about your day.
And did we mention the color? This gunmetal gray hue is neutral and pairs perfectly with everything. Whether you’re dressing for brunch or a night out in town, this skirt pulls any look together with the perfect amount of drama while keeping you warm.
