Dockside Top/Ace & Jig. $168:

Capitalizing on the "new vintage"trend sweeping womenswear right now, this top from the hard-to-find brand Ace & Jig exemplifies the brand by taking a vintage textile and turning it into a modern look that is able to be worn multiple ways.

Civil Jeans/Dear Creatures, $84:

The first pair of jeans from one of our most favorite and longest-running lines, these Dear Creatures jeans were created with the trendy "boyfriend fit" in mind, being a little wider in the ankle but still skinny throughout as a way to distinguish the fit from the super tight jeans out there while still maintaining a slim and flattering profile.

Classic Fringe Boot/Minnetonka, $36:

Minnetonka has been around for decades and still produces the most reliable and recognizable moccasins around. These fringe leather booties are at once iconic, eye-catching and functional, and they'll be awesome for summer paired with dark jeans or shorts.


Memphis Sunglasses/TOMS, $139:

A surprising number of people don't know that Toms even makes sunglasses, but they should, because these champagne-tinted semi-opaque frames are incredible. They're the perfect mid-ground for that hesitant person that is thinking about jumping the trend of clear frames but hasn't yet. They also give a child vision-saving eye surgery for every pair bought, so you can feel good about your awesome new sunglasses.

Hitchhiker Jacket/Obey, $82:

Already a ridiculously good deal for a real leather jacket, this moto-inspired piece from Obey is another 50 percent off at the store, so there's really no reason you shouldn't look like a badass motorcycle rider this spring.

Mojave Dress/Dear Creatures, $104:

The maxi dress has been a huge trend for the past couple of summers, and it's poised to get even bigger this summer. One of our favorite lines, Dear Creatures, has produced this maxi complete with a cute patterned knit top that makes it stand out in the crowd of all those other plain maxis that your friends will be wearing around.


Lotta Tee/Numph, $58:

A riff on the ever-popular graphic tee, this heather grey piece from Numph adds sequined cheetahs, and features other trendy details like rolled cuffs to make it pop out as a quirky summer standalone.

Joy Pants/Numph, &108:

This looks to be the season where patterned pants finally catch on, and these blown-out check pants from Numph are the perfect bridge for someone who wants a print but wants it to be versatile. Pair them with an oxford, tee or summer chambray to add a touch of whimsy to your summer outfit without it being overwhelming.

Canvas TOMS, $48:

Globally popular for their comfortable footwear and pay-it-forward attitude, these red Toms are cool and breathable and perfect for summer. Just wearing them will make you feel good, knowing you gave a kid in need a pair of shoes while enjoying your own.
