Welcome to Staff Favorites, a series where we take a break from the usual and share the products that we, the Rank & Style team, wholeheartedly recommend. Ahead, we’re giving you a peek at the 10 Rank & Style-approved finds we've recently bought and loved, plus why you should buy them too.
We'll choose online shopping over in-person shopping any day (obviously—look at us), but we won't deny the fact that making virtual purchases comes with its downsides. Will it fit well? Will the color look as good IRL as it does on my MacBook? Will it be comfortable? Luckily, that's exactly why Rank & Style exists. We scour the web for the good stuff so you're only left with the best of the best, never having to question whether you really should click that buy button.
Here to take things a step further, we're bringing you a roundup of finds that have not only already been approved by our brilliant algorithm, but also have the approval of our staff members who bought and loved them this month. Ahead, you'll find fall-ready wardrobe pieces like beautiful knits, sleek boots, and flattering jeans, as well as beauty staples like skin-perfecting foundations, affordable mascaras, and more.
So without further ado, scroll on to shop the Rank & Style-approved finds we're loving right now and get your hands on some of them for yourself.

Everlane The ReNew Anorak
STAFF SAYS: "This morning, I woke up to a rainy day forecast, which reminded me I needed a new rain jacket. (Ugh.) Then I remembered we recently ranked the best rain jackets on the internet and decided I would check out that list to see if I would want to buy one. It did not disappoint. I had a hard time deciding between two options but ultimately landed on the Everlane anorak. It's simple, lightweight, under $100, and is backed by some pretty awesome reviews. Very excited for this purchase and can't wait till it gets in."—Meredith Rimmer, Director of Editorial and Brand
Free Assembly 90's Original Straight Denim Jeans
STAFF SAYS: "I have been on the hunt for some '90s-fit jeans. This pair was sitting around our office, and I fell in love when I tried them on. The quality and fit are so good. They are only $27, so I tell everyone to run and try them!"—Taylor DeBaylo, Site Merchandising & Affiliate Manager
L'Oréal Paris Double Extend Beauty Tubes Lengthening 2 Step Mascara
STAFF SAYS: "After using this tubing mascara, I will never go back to a regular one. Thanks to this affordable drugstore pick, I never have dark smudges under my eyes. The best part is it's super easy to remove with a little warm water, but it still stays on when you need it to!"—Georgia Jones, Site Merchandising Assistant

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Foundation
