As a professional shopper (seriously — I literally online shop for a living), I’m on Amazon at least 10 times a day and that’s no exaggeration. From sourcing the newest need-to-know deals to checking out the latest releases, I would say I’m very familiar with the mega-retailer and always have at least a few things lingering in my online cart.

And since I can somehow never have too many articles of clothing, most of those items tend to fall into the apparel or accessories category. Ranging from viral, of-the-moment must-haves to high-quality basics, keep scrolling to see the new Amazon fashion finds that I’m most excited about this month — all retailing for $70 or less.

These days, everyone seems to be obsessed with SKIMS’ form-fitting tops. This long-sleeve shirt gives me total SKIMS vibes and is less than $10, so it’s definitely coming home with me. Shop it in over 15 colors, including this gray hue, shown above, which is my personal fave.

Flare leggings (aka “yoga pants” for my ’90s babies) are back and this pair has a flattering crossover waistband. Available in sizes XS-XXL, I plan on wearing these leggings to pilates class and when hanging on my couch.

I can’t rationalize buying the popular platform UGGS for $150 (besides the fact that they’re always out of stock), so these platform mules are the next best thing. These slides are covered in genuine suede, have a faux fur lining and are water-resistant.

Shop Real Essentials on Amazon for the softest loungewear

These days, we’re on the hunt for anything that’s (1) ultra-comfy and (2) ultra-affordable. After months of researching the best Amazon brands and rounding up a laundry list of retailer best-sellers, we’ve come to one conclusion:

Real Essentials is one of our favorite Amazon private brands for loungewear that we’ve essentially been shouting from the rooftops to everyone we know IRL (seriously, we are the definition of the 📣 emoji).

Not only will you find buttery soft loungewear that you won’t want to take off — from joggers to hoodies — but the brand is backed by none other than Mario Lopez. Now, if only he could have worn these pieces to class on “Saved By the Bell…”

Real Essentials has thousands of five-star ratings on Amazon, and it’s time we add you (yes, you reading this) to the mix of its well-ranked acclaim. Below, we outlined all of the fashion pieces for men and women that you should snag. Some come in bundles so you’re *really* getting a good bang for your buck.

Men's Active Jogger Sweatpants (3-Pack)

For an affordable alternative to some high-end athletic brands, the Men’s Active Jogger Sweatpants are a trio worth snagging. Namely, this bundle boasts more than 6,000 rave reviews and comes in virtually every colorway you’ll need to match your finest T-shirts.

Women's Fleece Pullover Hoodie (3-Pack)

OK, word of advice — run to the Real Essentials’ Fleece Pullover Hoodie. When we say we work from home and sleep in them, we mean it, and you’ll appreciate its marshmallow-soft interior. Plus, while super cozy, they’re not options you’ll sweat in as they’re lightweight and airy.

Men's Dry-Fit Moisture-Wicking Athletic Crew T-Shirt (5-Pack)

We think it’s critical that you have an elevated basic for every day of the workweek.
