I spend a considerable amount of time online, seeing what’s being recommended on Amazon by other influencers. I order all of it in the name of research and return most.
Many of the clothes on Amazon look like you found them on Amazon.
You can see it a mile away; the prints are distinct, the fabric is cheap, and don’t get me started on having to size up three sizes to get a dress to wrap around your waist.
But in the sea of misses are some big hits, like everything I’ve ordered from The Drop, a limited-edition private label line by Amazon that serves on point style at great prices in sizes XXS – 5X.
The Drop launched in early 2019 like an online pop-up shop. Amazon collaborated with notable Instagram influencers with a loyal, engaged following to create small, curated collections, and they sold out immediately.
Today, they still have seasonal collections, but they also have a selection of easy-to-wear wardrobe builders called “Staples by The Drop.”
And they are worth talking about.
The Drop on Amazon
The Drop has a range of categories, including outerwear, workwear, cozy lounge pieces, shoes and bags.
Currently the collection is timeless and modern, with a hint of 90s inspired style – a killer combination in my humble opinion.
Pair these with your better wardrobe basics and go to the office during the week, or brunch on Sunday.
And the best part, aside from the pieces not looking like you found them on Amazon, is the size range includes XXS – 5X.
I ordered this sweet little bag on Prime Day. It’s a fresh take on a tiny bag, functioning like a combination of a clutch and a crossbody.
I like how it looks over a blazer with jeans and the contrast it creates paired with sweats and sneakers.
The Lug Boot is one of the biggest trends for Fall. You can find them everywhere in a wide price range. I ordered this pair with very little expectations and love them. They’re not too heavy and have a cleaner line than other options at retail.
And they are under $100 so you can try them out for a few seasons without feeling like you made a huge commitment.
Another pair of shoes that were a pleasant surprise were these block-heeled mules. They are a comfortable transition shoe that looks great with lightweight dresses, jeans or flowy pants.
I’ve never met a black and white stripe I didn’t love and this one is no exception.
Wear it over your shoulders or with a pair of casual shorts on a cool summer night, and take it into the fall with a pair of black slim lined pants and loafers.
I ordered this faux leather blazer on a whim, thinking it would go right back.
Ladies, it’s fantastic.
I was worried it would be too stiff but it soft and a little stretchy. I bought it in “coffee bean” to play with the chocolate brown trend for fall. It will look fantastic with dark jeans or black pants.
Another favorite is this one button classic cut blazer. If you are tall and or plus size I would give this a try, it has room without compromising shape.
If you like a racerback top, run, don’t walk for this one. It’s flipping awesome.
I have three in black and three in white. It fits great, feels nice on the body, and you can wear your regular bra!
Finally, last holiday season I was looking for a fun, faux fur coat to wear to a party but everything was already sold out.
So I was thrilled to see this option, available in graphite, chocolate and tan (above). It’s a great length that works over a dress or pants.
