This direct-to-consumer brand cuts the middleman out of the shopping experience, so it's able to provide lower prices. Elizabeth Kosich, certified image stylist and founder of Elizabeth Kosich Styling, calls it a one-stop shop for affordable luxury clothes, home, and travel items.

"Shop upscale, high-quality wardrobe essentials like cashmere, silk, and leather at surprisingly low prices," she says. "Standout pieces include cashmere T-shirts, leather shackets, and an entire line of washable silks—tops, bottoms, dresses, loungewear, and sheets."

The prices are also very reasonable: a Mongolian cashmere T-shirt goes for $45, and a cotton knit blazer goes for $70.

"Don't miss the recommended 'Ways to Style' curated looks on each product page that help complete a head-to-toe look."

The best thing about J. Jill is its inclusivity. The brand offers petite, plus, and tall items, so everyone can feel great about shopping here.

Carol Davidson, NYC-based mid-life stylist and founder of Life.Style.Strategy, calls Lands' End a stylist's secret.

"While many tend to think of them as more 'steak than sizzle,' do not underestimate them for high-quality, well-cut, well-priced basics such as tanks, turtlenecks, and tees," she says. "And let's not forget their low-maintenance, no-iron, crisp white blouses, which, remarkably, seem to stay crisp and white!"

The retailer often holds sales that cut its already affordable prices by 40 percent. It also offers petite, tall, and plus sizes.

Consider this your new favorite destination for denim. You can find Wit & Wisdom at some department stores, such as Nordstrom, if you want to try them on in person, as well as on its own site.

The brand sells 'Ab'Solution jeans, which are made using stretch denim that contours and holds the body. "Let's just say they are a game-changer," says Davidson. "While the name says it all, I give them added points for comfortable fabrics, offered in an array of cuts and colors."

Prices for each pair are between $78 and $88.

If sensitive skin, irritation, and hot flashes are issues for you during menopause, look to the European brand Juliemay Lingerie, suggests Barrett.

"They produce soft, organic lingerie and nightwear for sensitive skin," she says. "As we age, our skin can become more irritated easily, so this brand is actively trying to produce clothing in an ethical way to combat that issue."

There are lots of bra options, like non-wired ones, ones made for back support, and ones made for post-surgery. There's even a helpful guide that shows you which of the brand's items are best for each condition, from hot flashes to allergies to eczema. Prices range from around $60 to $100 per piece.
