Thanks, It's New: 21 Items Our Editors Added to Their Closets This Month

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 Mango heels I'm telling everyone about to Yusra's new It bag and Sierra's affordable ribbed tank, keep scrolling for the new fashion favorites we added to our closets in May.

I bought these almost as soon as our EIC shared them in Slack—and I have no regrets. They're shockingly comfortable, and I like the sleek Y2K vibe they give off. 

I heard maxi hemlines were trending this spring and summer, and this ecru denim skirt has quickly become my new staple. It looks so sleek and far fresher than wearing jeans and a tee (which I'm guilty of overdoing).

Meet my new work bag. It's so big that it's almost comical. And I think that's what makes it ridiculously chic. 

Not only is this trench cool, classic, and versatile AF, but it also has the added benefit of saving over 2000 liters of water since it's made from 20% kapok, a naturally thermoregulating, breathable, and biodegradable fabric.

"I've been meaning to get a new everyday watch for years, and I've found it. Breda's watches are so elegant and minimal. This one looks like a bracelet that just happens to tell time."

"Silent Opus is my new jewerly obsession. The just-launched brand allows you to customize your piece (you can even get it engraved), which will arrive much more quickly than most customizable jewelry. The options are timeless yet cool, and the quality is top-notch. Bonus: All of the pieces include the prettiest jewelry box that you can add your initials to."

"This dress is casual enough to wear during the day with some sandals and sunnies, but it could be totally dressed up for nighttime as well. I’m so in love with the knit material—it’s ultra soft and stretchy."

"I bought these $40 sandals after I spotted my co-worker talking about them on a recent livestream. Let me tell you: They don't look $40."

"The colorful beads add just the right amount of Y2K fun to this pretty beaded necklace."

"This breezy dress is a no-brainer for summer days."

"I've seen too many fashion people with these sunglasses, and I can officially say they live up to the hype."

"I've been eyeing this Staud bag for months, and now that I finally have it, I'm very much obsessed. The cool shape adds interest to any outfit no matter how simple, and it fits everything I need, which I can't say for some other bags I own."

"There's nothing I love more than a good pair of relaxed trousers, and this Pixie Market one has quickly become a new favorite. It cinches perfectly at the waist but is loose and relaxed on the leg, which is harder to find than you think."

"I'm a big fan of Uniqlo's heat-teach, so I quickly became obsessed with its Airism collection just the same. Its original airism T-shirts are on the thicker side, but its new cotton version makes for the perfect white T-shirt. It's comfy and oversize, not to mention it keeps you from being a sweaty mess."

"I think a great jacket can take any outfit to the next level, and I'm very into this distressed silhouette from Hudson. The wash is quite cool, and I adore the relaxed cut."

"I just stocked up on more tees from Mott & Bow for summer. They're amazing and so soft. I live in them."

"I adore Pangaia's sneakers. They're actually made by repurposing discarded grape skin, stalks, and seeds into grape leather. As a side note, I've also been exploring this sneaker subscription service called Kyx. Very cool."

"I can't get enough of baseball hats and am adding this one to my collection. I actually found it on Modiste, which is a newer luxury retailer that's based out of Nashville."

"In my hunt for the perfect white tank for summer, I fell in love with this Hollister one. My ideal crop ends right below the belly button to show some skin when I pair it with a low-rise skirt or pants."

"I'm calling this the perfect matching set for summer. The sunny-yellow print defines my summer vibe—energetic, bright, and fun. I just found out it's hand-dyed in Bali, and now I love it even more."

"I've been in the market for a black shoulder bag for quite some time, and this one ended up being the perfect solution to all of my problems. It's become my new weekend essential, and I feel like I don't go more than two days without wearing it. Its shape is inspired by origami, and the geometric angles make it stand out in the sea of black bags."
