Khiry Stud Earrings, $250-$565, available here: “Khiry launched a collection of stud earrings that reinterpret some of the brand’s signature jewelry shapes, like Tiny Khartoum, Mask and Horus — and I just think they’re so elegant and cool.” —Ana Colón, Deputy Editor

Barbie x Dragon Glassware Wine Glasses, $45, available here: “This Barbie only drinks mocktails but can still appreciate the swanky fun that is a wine glass that is gold on the outside and pink on the inside.” —Liza Sokol, Sr. Audience Development Manager

Buck Mason Surplus Rib Tank, $45, available here (sizes XS-2XL): “A tank top is an absolute must for summer and making it through inferno-level hot days. But this top has something most tanks don’t: a hidden thread chain that holds and conceals bra straps, creating a seamless look.” —Andrea Bossi, Staff Writer

Draper James Sara Pajama Set in Pink Polka Dot, $29 $58, available here (sizes XS-3X): “On a recent press trip with Draper James, the brand had this pajama set waiting in the hotel room for me, and it was the comfiest and coziest way to settle in for the night. The super soft material genuinely gave me one of the best sleeps I’ve had a in awhile (in tandem with a fluffy hotel bed, too).” —Brooke Frischer, Contributing Writer

Mavi Victoria Wide Leg Jeans, $138, available here (sizes 24-32): “Neutral pants make outfit planning simple, and I’ve been especially into these earth-toned jeans recently. I also love that Mavi’s latest denim collection is crafted from all-natural and recycled fibers.” —Angela Wei, Staff Writer 

Memento Mori Designs NYC Medusa Snake Ring, $45, available here: “As someone proudly born during the Year of the Snake, I’m a sucker for snake motif jewelry. This ring has quickly become one of my favorite accessories — easily complementing my daily ‘fits while being a standout piece on its own.” —Janelle Sessoms, Editorial Intern

Jordan Road Reese Necklace, $70, available here: “I love that while this necklace is dainty enough to be worn every day, it still makes a bit of a statement. Not to mention, it’s stackable-friendly, letting me play around with necklace layering when I’m feeling a bit more adventurous.” —JS

DSNY Logo Cardigan, $105, available here (sizes XXS-XXL): “I detest the word ‘foodie,’ but as someone who partly lives in New York because the restaurant game is unmatched, it’s nice to wear that fact rather literally on my sleeve.” —LS

Wray Maya Tee Pansy Rain, $125, available here (sizes XXS-6XL): “I’m really into this trippy, artful take on a spring floral.” —AC

Alex Mill Standard Zip Jumpsuit in Herringbone, $255, available here (sizes XXS-XXL): “The best jumpsuit ever now comes with a zip closure. I may need another…” —AC

Girlfriend Collective Black Compressive High-Rise Legging, $78, available here (XXS-6XL): “I’ve been on the hunt for my perfect leggings, and Girlfriend Collective’s best-selling offering hits my three main needs: 1) They must be black and soft, 2) They don’t start sagging every 30 seconds, and 3) The compression can’t be so intense that I can’t lounge in them, even in plus sizes like my own.” —LS

Honeylove SuperPower Short, $89, available here (sizes XS-3X): “I fell in love the moment I put this contraption on: My waist looked snatched, the shorts component prevented my thighs from chafing and the style is snug, but nothing corset-level.” —AB

Behno Tilda Saddle Bag Convertible Nappa Frost/Acid Green, $995 $495, available here: “Constructed out of Italian nappa leather, this gorgeous minimalist-yet-unique bag has me completely smitten. It’s convertible and so spacious I can slide in my iPad, wallet and phone with plenty of room to spare, plus it goes with literally every outfit.” —JS

Love, Bonito Lannie Tweed Crop Outer, $59, available here (sizes 2XS-2XL): “Respectfully, you cannot tell me that this tweed jacket isn’t the cutest thing. It’s a chic outer layer for memorable summer nights when the sun sets and things get chilly.” —AB

Marshall Columbia Pink Moonflower Bag, $690, available here: “I can’t picture myself this summer without this Marshall Columbia stunner on my arm — it’s just so fun.” —LS

Simone Perele Saga Tattoo Demi Cup Bra, $125, available here (cup sizes B-F): “There is something about high-quality lingerie that changes your whole attitude, regardless of the clothes you wear on top. I find that Simone Perele bras do this and fit my chest like a hug. I find this sheer, summery pink bra extremely alluring.” —AB

Kate Spade New York Charmer Leather Strappy Sculptural-Heel Sandals, $268, available here: “It was recently over 85 degrees and sunny, which means I’m ready to abandon anything that makes me overheat. Enter: these sandals, which may cause weird tan lines, but save my feet from turning my sneakers into ovens. I love the artsy touch of the spherical heels on this strappy style.” —AB

Banzo Apron Blazer, $245, available here (one size): “Banzo upcycles vintage pieces and makes them into incredible ribbon-covered masterpieces. With a large selection of different colors, sizes and styles it’s hard to not fall in love with everything the brand offers. I love wearing my blazer tied together or detaching the arm for an asymmetrical statement.” —BF

Loewe Inflated Square Injection Plastic Sunglasses, $360, available here: “The lenses of these sunglasses are dark enough that you can people-watch at will and the frames are inflated enough that you’ll be the most mysterious person in the area. If you’re wearing makeup with these, bring a spare makeup sponge to touch up your nose, though — these guys are heavy.” —BF

Aritzia Babaton Pelli Hip Shirt Jacket, $148, available here (sizes 2XS-2XL): “This jacket is super versatile and pairs with lots of outfits, whether it’s pants, a skirt or a dress. The texture is also super soft and buttery, despite the fact that it’s vegan leather.” —AW

Sergio Tacchini Miss Dallas Track Pant, $100, available here (sizes XS-XL): “I’ve always been hesitant when trying out track pants, due to many feeling uncomfortably snug around my hips. This stylish pair from Sergio Tacchini put those fears to rest as they fit perfectly around my fuller hips and are amazingly comfortable when I’m on the go or just lounging around my apartment.” —JS

Nordstrom Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater, $56-$90 $139, available here (sizes XS-L): “It might just be personal preference, but I enjoy thin sweaters because they’re great for layering. I also don’t tend to see cashmere in this color, but it’s so playful and perfect for spring!” —AW
