For a more tailored travel look:

NYDJ Marilyn Straight Pants

NYDJ, Marilyn Straight Leg Stretch Trouser, $80-$119

Available in sizes 00-18, Petite & Regular, and 6 colors.

What Women Are Saying:

“I ordered these in black, camel, and pumpernickel. I love every color and I love love these pants. I work in an office setting and these pants are dressy with a pair of heels and a nice top. I’m so comfortable all day in these things and that is exactly what I had been searching for for so long! I’m 5’8″ and it’s hard to find pants that are long enough for me to wear heels with. And I’m in love with the way NYDJ pants sit on my hips. No more tugging all day long! I do wear flats with then sometimes but I have to roll them at the cuff just slightly which I don’t think looks too bad. I ordered a six (150lbs) and they all fit great even after washing. I do wash on delicate, inside out and then air dry. These pants are just that amazing.”-anonymous

Madwell Roadtripper Jeans

Madewell, Roadtripper Stretch Jeans, $75

Available in sizes 23-37.

What Women Are Saying: 

“YES! These are perfect! I LOVE Roadtripper jeans and these black ones are no exception! So stretchy and comfortable, very flattering fit. They are high rise on me which sucks in my tummy! The black is a true dark black, I hope it doesn’t fade in the wash. LOVE these!” -ILTeacherMom

For all out comfort:

Girlfriend Collective Leggings

Girlfriend Collective Hi-Waist Full Length Leggings, $68

I was unsure whether to order these but my usual brand was unavailable. Now I have a new brand I like even better! Not only do these feel like a second skin, they are silky to the touch and the high waist does not roll over. I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed with these.

The best leggings I’ve ever worn! I have been searching for what seems like years for the perfect leggings and these are the holy grail of leggings! They are compressive, slimming, and they sculpt! I hesitated writing this review because I want them all to myself but seriously, forget the super expensive Lululemon, etc…these are life changing!

Everlane Pima LS

Everlane, Pima Long-sleeve Tee, $28 

Available in sizes XXS-XL, and 4 colors. 

 What Women Are Saying:  

“Buttery cotton, elegant silhouette, modest but relaxed neckline. Nothing beats it! I’ve never gotten so many compliments on a black tee, maybe because it looks good, or perhaps because I feel so cozy and relaxed wearing it.” – Pip Nico 

 “I’m obsessed with Pima cotton any & everything, this shirt included. It’s sooo soft & comfortable and has a dressy feel to it. I love to wear it under jumpsuits for fall/winter and even wore it to the gym the other day. Super breathable/thin.” -KJ31 


Hinge Maxi Sweater Dress

“Love, love ,love this dress. So comfortable. Add a scarf or some jewelry and it’s a knockout. Love the length. Looks great with a pair of boots. Very smart looking for work and an evening out. Price point is great. Looks expensive but very reasonably priced.” – TexanLovesNordstrom

HardTail Tee Dress 

Hard Tail, Every Day T-shirt Dress, $106

What Women Are Saying:  

“I got this dress in the navy variegated color. I love it. It wears like a t-shirt but looks much nicer. The fabric is soft – not clingy. Size feel right – it doesn’t hug your body but also doesn’t look like a sack. I am taking it on a cruise but plan to wear it anywhere.” -anonymous reviewer

” I absolutely love this shawl. This year I discovered Barefoot Dreams and have a nice staple of this comfortable brand in my closet, this shawl was the finishing piece. Nice for a chilly evening walk, the pockets just right for carrying your phone or warming hands. Perfect for travel if you are not chilly it folds into a nice soft pillow, when done it fits easily into your carry on- what’s not to like?” -marshops

Halogen Cashmere Cardigan

My friend that I was shopping with actually gasped and said ‘You have to get that!’ It just drapes and hangs perfectly. When I brought it home, my husband loved it as well. I’m very happy with it. The material is soft and comfortable. It is high quality and looks it.” -EatStreet

Available in 6 colors.  

What Women Are Saying:  

“I am not a review writer…However these socks ROCK!! I am on my feet daily and these socks have change my world. The swelling is gone. My legs do not ache after a long day. And, while I am wearing them my legs feel amazing. The are worth every penny!!!!” -TheNordysGirl 

“These knee highs are the first pair I’ve purchased from Nordstrom that actually do what they claim to do. Yes, they prevent the swelling I get from sitting long hours at a desk and the fit (after I returned one pair for a smaller size) is perfect. The price is high for a pair of socks, but they are well worth the investment.” -StroumB 

  Michael Kors Keaton Slip-On

Michael Kors Keaton Slip-On, $99

What Women Are Saying:  

“Love these shoes. They are so cute. They do run LARGE. I usually wear an 8.5 or 9. I ordered the 8.5 and had to return because they were falling off my feet. If in doubt go down a size.” -anonymous reviewer 

“These are some of the most comfortable and stylish casual shoes I own. I’m the kind of person who lives in heels and abhors the wearing of most sneakers for anything other than athletic pursuits. On those days when heels would be ridiculous or even downright dangerous, I needed a pair of comfy shoes that still gave me a fashion boost. These shoes fit the bill to perfection. They run true to size (I am usually an 8.5 American size and these 8.5s fit perfectly. The shoe is a little stiff to get into at first but loosens up with wear (about an hour). I wear them mostly with jeans and shorts but wore them with a grey tshirt dress for a recent photoshoot! I’m off to see if they come in camo print too!!!” -Carmen 

Hush Puppies Ballet Flat

Hush Puppies, Ballet Flat, $79

Available in sizes 5.5-12, and 3 colors.

What Women Are Saying:

“I ordered the black for work and they are super comfy. The minute I tried them on my feet felt the difference from some of the other flats I’ve worn. Love this brand and style. Defiantly a new fave for me!” -Cfranq

“These flats are SUPER comfortable. I could wear them all day. As a new mom, I am all about comfort and don’t want to give up on style and these fit the bill. They run pretty true to size and are made of super soft suede, elastic around the opening that doesn’t pinch as well as enough support to be worn for 8+ hour shopping days. I would definitely recommend.”  –AddiesMomma
