Is anyone in need of some shopping inspiration? Well, nobody asked, but I'm certainly delivering anyway. With a dizzying number of new pieces hitting the market, it can be downright intimidating to peruse what's out there in the hopes of making a little wardrobe update. But that's where I come in, friends. On a typical day, I do some online browsing to highlight the very best shopping picks of the moment, but today, I'm taking it a step further by showing you what we're personally adding to our closets and including some inspirational outfit photos.
There's no doubt our editors are a stylish bunch. (I look to their Instagrams for my own style ideas.) So when I tell you these new tops, bags, sunglasses, and jewelry items are it, I think you'll agree. From the minidress I'm living in this summer to Ally's new It sneakers and Grace's amazing Zara find, keep scrolling for the new fashion favorites we added to our closets in June.
Like everyone in fashion right now, I'm deeply obsessed with the return of Balenciaga's Y2K accessories. This modern update on the iconic City Bag feels especially fresh in a structured, petite shape. Yes, it's a mini bag, but it surprisingly fits all the essentials.
I prefer my lounge and sleepwear to work double duty and this linen shorts set from Australian label Deiji Studios works just as well out of the house as it does in. It's supremely comfortable and the breathable fabric makes it the ideal thing to wear for summer in NYC.
I hate having pieces in my closet that only serve one purpose, so when I got the chance to try Lululemon's new Chargefeel sneakers, I was impressed. Its second-ever shoe fuses multiple activities into one, combining a training sneaker with a running one—and it's shockingly lightweight.
"I've been living in tailored shorts this summer—it's the 'clean girl' trend that has become a key staple in my wardrobe recently. I packed these white linen shorts for a trip to NYC and they proved to be one of the most versatile pieces in my suitcase."
"I usually invest in one Isa Boulder bikini each summer. They are such good quality and fit me like a glove. Even though I'm still constantly searching for a good cheap bikini thrill, it's my Isa swimsuits I come back to time and time again. This is one of the only strapless bikini tops that actually supports me and doesn't slip down due to the underwire."

"Every summer, I love to treat myself to buying one great Staud dress, so when I spotted this linen cutout number, I knew I had to have it. I used Klarna to secure it, and honestly, I'm so grateful I did, as it's probably one of the best dresses I've bought in a while. First off, it's so well made—the leather edges and tie-up back are just perfection. But beyond that, I wore this on a trip to New Orleans in the middle of the summer, and I can not think of a better dress to survive the heat in. It not only is lightweight, but everywhere I went, people were complimenting me, making it worth every penny in my books."
"I also just treated myself and bought this stunning Yuzefi woven leather fringe bag, and I'm so happy I did. I've been wearing it nonstop. It's the perfect little summertime tote if you want an effortless bag but don't want to carry the same raffia iterations as everyone else."
"I never thought a pair of sunglasses could make me feel put-together, but these Linda Farrow sunnies do exactly that. They may look heavy but they feel lightweight and I have no other word to describe them besides chic. My co-workers have also been wearing them nonstop, so it's an office affair."
"My summer uniform lately has been a black midi dress and sandals and this Zara satin midi has been my savior in the unbearable NYC mid-July heat. I love how it's so light weight and comfortable. It's a classic basic that you really can never go wrong with. I also pair it with sneakers."
