Team Fashionista has been enjoying the summer in style. We’ve been keeping track of all the best items we’ve bought or eagerly added to our wishlists in July, and they’re pretty good, if we do say so ourselves: Our current obsessions include classic athleisure, effortlessly chic jewelry and the funkiest cowboy boots. (Of course, there’s some “Barbie” influence, too.) 

Keep scrolling to see (and shop!) our July favorites. 

Re/Done Blue 90s Denim Skirt, $250 $165, available here (sizes 23-32): “The excellent Ssense sale influenced me to purchase my first mini skirt of my 30s. I like the wash and overall design simplicity, and the fact that it isn’t low-waisted.”—Dhani Mau, Editor-in-Chief

Abercrombie YBP sculptLUX 7″ Bike Short, $45, available here (sizes XXS-2XL): “Abercrombie has been having a moment. While people are loving its dresses, don’t sleep on the brand’s activewear offering. I’m a huge fan of the YPB bike shorts, which I wear both to wear out and underneath skirts — the fabric’s super soft and lightweight”—Ana Colón, Deputy Editor

Les Miss NYC The Picnic Dress, $95, available here (sizes XS-XL): “Ever since discovering this Nolita-based brand, I can’t get my mind off all of its juicy garments, especially this shirred fruit salad mini dress, aptly named for my favorite summer activity.”—Savannah Sitton, Contributing Market Editor

Giaritè Luna 2.0 Bag, $458, available here: “Metallic accessories are having a moment, so opt for a reflective bag that matches your shine. This half-moon shape is my perfect size, and the finish can act as a mirror for effortless touch-ups. The bejeweled braided handle adds an elevated touch.” —Savannah

Beyond Yoga x Donni Terry Henly Sweatshirt in White, $177, available here (sizes 2XS-2XL): “This mash-up between two of my all-time favorite comfy brands doesn’t disappoint: From the classic henley silhouette to the cozy-yet-breathable terry fabric, it’s my ideal athleisure layering piece.” —Stephanie Saltzman, Beauty Director

Chanel Knit Pluto Glitter Medium Flap Bag, $219/month, available here: “My Jennifer Hudson in ‘Sex and The City 2’ dreams have officially come true after getting to try out a membership at Vivrelle and borrowing this style, which meets all my schlepping needs (my only major bag requirement). I have never pictured myself carrying a Chanel bag, but when I saw this pink glitter-fest of a purse, I couldn’t let it go.” —Brooke Frischer, Staff Writer

Aerie Superchill Seamless High Neck Bra Top in Luminous Rose, $35 $26, available here (sizes XXS-XXL):“I may have bought this top because it makes me feel like a sporty Barbie, but the real plus is I can easily dress this top down to walk my dog or up for a coffee date.”—Catie Pusateri, Editorial Intern

Luv AJ Mini Ballier Necklace with Heart Charm in Green, $185, available here: “‘I love tennis necklaces’ feels like a wild thing to say when you’re in the tax bracket I am, but I do, and this green, heart-accented version is just so precious.”—Liza Sokol, Sr. Audience Development Manager

Brochu Walker The Havana Mini Dress, $298, available here (sizes XS-L): “This became my go-to dress, as it’s loose enough in summer’s sweltering heat. Past its beautifully deep blue color and sturdiness, I love that it has pockets and is easy to throw on. I also have my eyes on the pink colorway, since I’ve been bitten by the ‘Barbie’ bug.”—Andrea Bossi, Staff Writer


Airlift Gingham Splendor Bra & 5″ Airlift Gingham Biker Short Set, $136, available here (sizes XXS-L): “This workout set is absolutely perfect for the summer. I mean, just take a look at that gingham print.” —Olivia Novato, Editorial Intern

I.Am.Gia Masie Mini Dress, $90, available here (sizes XXS-XL): “I was very kindly gifted this very cool dress from I.Am.Gia’s new resort collection. Usually, I run into a lot of trendy dresses that aren’t very friendly to people who usually need to wear bras, so the straight neckline and just-thick-enough straps were surprising and exciting features. I also love the small cargo pocket on the hip — perfect for anything from wired headphones to lipstick.” —Brooke

Melissa x Telfar Small Jelly Shopper, $150, available here: “The way Telfar does collaborations is brilliant. My mini Ugg-ified Shopping Bag is among my favorite, most-worn accessories. I’m tempted to get her a sibling from the brand’s capsule with Melissa. I mean, it is the perfect concert bag…” —Ana

Source Unknown Mary Jane Flats in Black, $78, available here:Dhani officially sold me on the mesh ballet flat concept, and I’ve been looking for a pair to add in to my summer footwear lineup. I love this Mary Jane style and can’t wait to wear it with an Essie Clambake pedicure peeking through.” —Steph

The M Jewelers x MLB NY Yankees Cut Bracelet, $230, available here: “Now, I’m admittedly not a sports girl, but I’m a New Yorker at heart, and this Yankees pendant bracelet from buzzy unisex jewelry brand The M Jewelers made in collaboration with MLB is exactly how I like to wear my home-state pride: gold and minimal. (For the West Coasters, there’s a similar Dodgers option — just don’t go leaving it unchecked around any sports fans, you might not get it back.)” —Savannah

Dolce Vita Paroo Block Heel Sandal, $130 $49, available here: “I’ve been searching for a summery heel to pair well with a sundress, and I think I’ve *finally* found them.” —Catie

Beaufille Black Baes Midi Dress, $495 $272, available here (sizes S-XL): “I didn’t pull the trigger on this gorgeous Ssense sale find, but I’m still thinking about it. Mostly I’m contemplating whether I could be the sort of woman who wears a dress like this. I don’t think I’m there yet.” —Dhani

Skims Seamless Sculpt Brief Bodysuit, $68, available here (sizes XXS-4X): “I’ve been on the Skims wave for a while now, but it’s somehow taken me until this month to try the brand’s hero bodysuit. To say I swear by this piece would be the ultimate understatement: No outfit of mine is complete without it underneath. Of course, the smoothing and no-lines are great, but I mostly appreciate how it’s somehow completely holding me in without feeling uncomfortably tight.” —Brooke

Attersee The Sculpted Vest in Sand, $495, available here (sizes 00-14): “I’ve been eyeing this vest — which features a criss-cross back and cutaway silhouette for an elevated take on the tailored basic — since spring. Still not done dreaming up ways I’d wear it.” —Steph

Mejuri Daily Stacker Ring, $48, available here: “Everybody needs a good stacking ring. It ties together any jewelry set and keeps you looking put-together, with minimal effort. I love this simple ring from Mejuri, not only because of the low price, but also because of its classic look.” —Olivia

Velvet Caviar Baby Pink Gingham iPhone Case, $40, available here: “As a phone-case obsessive, I’d be lying if I didn’t admit to changing my case nearly every month — sometimes more. Staying on course with July’s picnic theme, Velvet Caviar’s Coastal Cottage-Core collection is too good to pick just one.” —Savannah

Uniqlo Mini Short-Sleeve T-Shirt, $15, available here (sizes XS-XL): “I like to think of myself as something of an affordable-T-shirt connoisseur, and this Uniqlo style is a new favorite. It gives you the shape of a baby tee without being so fitted that you can’t lift your arms up. The cotton has a nice weight to it as well, with just a tiny bit of stretch.” —Dhani

Christine Alcay Aly Dress in Tencel Cotton, $495, available here (sizes XS-M): “There’s something so irresistible to me in a relaxed-fit dress in earthy tones. But what I especially love about this nutmeg-colored one is that it’s made in an NYC atelier that focuses on intentional, small-batch production.” —Andrea

SC Collection Amalia Necklace, $175, available here: “I bought this necklace from a flea market on Long Island and have genuinely not taken it off since. I particularly love how the chain and heart charm are brushed over for a beautiful vintage look. Plus, it can be worn in a variety of ways: a layered double chain, a statement moment or even a belt.” —Brooke

Saylor Saydee Metallic Gradient Minidress, $297, available here (sizes XS – L): “This feels like the perfect post-‘Barbie’ craze dress. With its pleated and shimmery fabric, I love that this piece has mermaid vibes without an overbearing, blinding amount of pink. It’s the perfect look to pair with strappy heels for a night of cocktails or to a fabulous party.” —Andrea

Mejuri Twin Hoops, $298, available here: “I wear gold hoops with almost every outfit, and I’m always on the hunt for earrings that can instantly make any outfit look more stylish. These hoops give the illusion of a double piercing, and they’re made of 14k solid gold, so no worries about green ears.” —Catie

Macie Bean Women’s Rose Garden Western Boots, $260, available here: “I fell in love with the embroidery on these square-toe boots the moment they flashed on my screen, and I absolutely lost my mind when I saw they have a cushioned insole. As a fan of what I call ‘chaotic neutrals,’ I will be wearing them with everything.” —Liza

Farm Rio Green Coconut Tree Richelieu Midi Dress, $275, available here (sizes XXS-XL): “Summer is all about bright colors, and this vibrant dress is exactly what I crave for the season. Plus, I absolutely adore the length and the fabric.” —Olivia

Praying Twins Hoodie, $165, available here (sizes XS-XXL): “Like many women of a certain age, I am, to put it lightly, obsessed with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. I bought this hoodie with a QUICKNESS.” —Liza

Martine Rose Twisted Football T-shirt, $291 $416, available here (sizes S-L): “From tenniscore to pickleball fashion to motorcore, this year has undoubtedly been about the convergence of fashion and sports. This fluorescent, soccer-like jersey by Martine Rose feels like the ultimate T-shirt to jazz up a bland outfit, while reminding me of my jerseys growing up.” —Andrea

Parade x Ganni Luminous Glow Triangle Bralette, $55, available here (sizes XS-3XL): “I love the pretty floral satin of this Parade x Ganni collab, and I envision it peeking out of slip dresses and tank tops all summer long.” —Liza

Message Shaw Slide, $160, available here: “This one’s for my ‘I’ll just walk’ girlies: Meet the comfiest sandals that have replaced all my other summer shoes — and, as a footwear fanatic, that speaks volumes. The extra-wide, extra-stretchy strap hugs your foot like a cozy, blister-free cuddle.” —Savannah

Vineyard Vines Polo Collar Pleated Performance Dress, $138, available here (sizes 2XS – XL): “This feels like something Charlotte from ‘Sex and the City’ would wear. But it’s also perfect for all the summer’s sporty trends, from golf to pickleball. Vineyard Vines always captures that quintessential East Coast style.” —Andrea
