We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.

If you were to ask my friends, family, or even random passersby, they’d all tell you I look like a dork. That’s totally fine, because I love being a dork. But some days, I wanna feel a little cooler than usual; I want to seem a little more interesting. So whenever the mood to be cool strikes, I simply check out all the little things on Amazon that can make you seem way cooler.

And I’m not just talking about cute pieces of jewelry that’ll make you stand out from the crowd — oh no. Since tastes can vary wildly from person to person, I’ve made sure to fill this list with everything from cool home decor to stylish beach coverups. But if you’re on the lookout for something extra-special? Be sure to check out the neon “Good Vibes” sign. It’s small enough to fit on your desk at work — and at less than $40, it’s a total steal.

Sure, being cool is overrated — but if you wish to seem cooler, Amazon has you covered. The website has tons of trendy stuff, from clothing to home decor. So are you waiting for? That neon sign comes in three colors, and I doubt it’ll wait around for you much longer.

02
The Handbag With A Cool Holographic Print

Not only is this handbag useful, but it’s also covered with a holographic print that changes color depending on the lighting. And if you don’t need a handbag? It’s also available as a backpack, crossbody bag, as well as a tote.

An Oversized Denim Jacket That’s Seriously On Trend
