Over the past six months, we’ve shared tons of product recommendations with you to help you shop smarter and save money. Now, to make sure you don’t miss a thing, we’re looking back at the top products we — and you — have been obsessed with since January. Consider these products the best in show. In this guide, we’ve rounded up the apparel and accessories Skimm’rs have added to cart the most. Let’s get to it.

PJs you’ll want to buy in bulk…

And you can, since they’re under $25 per pair, even though they look just like much more expensive brands. These are available in sizes XS–4X and in eight colors and patterns. Of course, if you’d rather treat yourself to the luxury version, we’d support that too. (PS: New moms take note — they’re perfect for nursing.) ($15.39, Target)

Dolce Vita

Comfortable nude heels that’ll go with any outfit…

Case in point: One HQ’r even changed into these on her wedding day. They’ve got a chunky round heel that looks chic but also offers solid support. Get them in over 11 colors and patterns to go with whatever outfit you’ve got in mind. They also tend to be a comfy option for those with wide feet. ($59.90, Dolce Vita)

The sneakers everyone and their mother is wearing…

You’ve probably seen them on your morning commute or on runners in the neighborhood. We put Hokas to the test and they’re definitely worth the hype. This streamlined pair is great for walks, short runs, and cross-training. They’re lightweight, supportive, and ultra durable. One HQ’r throws hers in the wash and they come out good as new. Grab your wallet before they sell out. ($125, Hoka)

An undetectable shaping thong…

This breathable thong from Spanx is light enough for everyday wear. The targeted waistband helps smooth and the minimal stitching makes it virtually invisible under your clothes. Spanx considers these a level one (out of three) in terms of support. Think of it like a light hug. ($24, Spanx)

Waterproof clogs from Ugg…

Wet winter days have met their match. These clogs have a stretchy neoprene removable sock that’ll hug your ankle to keep rain out. To keep your feet warm, they’ve got a shearling lining too. Not your go-to in a blizzard, but perfect for a downpour. ($80, Nordstrom)

Buy it

An elevated fanny pack that holds all the essentials...

No one could have predicted the return of the fanny pack would be so strong. But here we are, with so many stylish options. The Lululemon version is great for walks or toting the essentials to workouts — but sleek enough to wear out to brunch after, too. It’s also made from water-repellent material, so your stuff will be safe no matter what the elements (or a spilled mimosa) bring. ($38, Lululemon)

Buy it

A flattering straight-leg pant in a perfect summer color…

White pants are synonymous with summer, and these are no exception. Made from ultra-comfy stretch cotton, these must-have pants are high-rise and feel like they’re already broken in. Don’t believe us? Customers say they’ve worn them several times between washes, and they’re still the perfect fit. ($98, Everlane)

Buy it

A chunky cardigan that goes with literally everything…

Pair with a dress or a T-shirt and jeans. Either way, you won’t be chilly. It comes in more than 20 colors (yes, that’s right) and sizes S-XL. Take your pick. ($42.99, Amazon)

Buy it

A pack of bright claw clips for your hair…

Throwing your hair back into a ponytail isn’t the only option. We’re a major fan of quickly getting loose strands out of your face thanks to one of these. They’re easy to throw into a bag before heading out the door, and you won’t have to worry about a hair tie snapping. ($8.99+, Amazon)

Buy it

A comfy baseball cap he can rock on his daily dog walk...

His alma mater? Old news. Any dog parent will be proud to rock this pre-washed, 100% cotton cap on strolls around the neighborhood. Plus, the adjustable strap will help achieve the perfect fit. ($15.99+, HatphileMade via Etsy)

Buy it

A pair from Allbirds that's made from renewable materials…

Like eucalyptus tree fiber. They also happen to be machine washable and ultra lightweight. The knit is breathable, so steamy temps on a summer day won’t be a bother. Did we mention the midsole is made from Brazilian sugarcane? It’s bouncy, contoured, and yet another feature that makes this sneaker carbon-neutral. ($135, Allbirds)

Buy it

A delicate necklace that’s pretty and personal…

Everyone loves opening a gift box only to find a beautiful piece of jewelry, but this isn’t any ordinary necklace. It’s a layering piece that can hold up to four names of your choosing with three different metal options. So your giftee can keep their kids, their partner, or even their pet close to their heart. ($22.40+, GlamourJewelryHouse via Etsy)

Buy it

A high-waist bikini set with a twist-design top…

Customers say this wallet-friendly bikini fits true to size and rave about how comfy it is. The set is available in sizes XS–XXL, and the top has adjustable straps. Note that you’ll have to purchase the top and bottom in the same size. There are seven colors to choose from. ($14.99+, Cupshe)

Buy it

A flip-flop that has micro-bubble foam cushioning…

Plus a slip-resistant sole. A pair that’s actually comfortable and not totally flat like cardboard? Yes, please. When warm weather (or your next tropical vacation) arrives, you’ll be ready to hit the beach in these. (24+, Amazon)
