I'm fully aware that many people are lacking the motivation to dress up—or even get dressed at all—these days, but sometimes all it takes is one feel-good piece to rekindle your love for fashion. With that in mind, I scoured a couple of our readers' favorite retailers to find standout, on-trend clothes, shoes, jewelry, and accessories I think you'll love. 

But don't worry, I definitely kept wearability in mind when looking for items to include in this story. That's why it's all in the details: a black long-sleeve top with a square neckline and corset design or a sleek pair of boots with chunky lug soles. Scroll down to shop the most fashiony yet wearable items from Nordstrom and Shopbop right now. 


Faux leather is a huge trend this season, and these Madewell pants are one of my favorite interpretations yet.

Yes, bra tops count as real tops.
