    1. A basically perfect striped T-shirt because no closet is complete without one.

    Promising review: "No matter the brand, these days it seems impossible to find a thick, well-made, good quality T-shirt. This one is finally it! I'm loving the stripes, the band around the collar and the longer sleeves. I find a lot of T-shirts to be see-through, but this one is not. The longer sleeves are really great too and add to the quality of the shirt. I've been waiting for a T-shirt like this for a long time." —WorcesterJCrewGal

    Price: $36.50 (available in sizes XXS-3X)

    2. A breezy cotton dress with subtle tiered detailing that is the definition of a "pull-on-and-go" piece.

    J. Crew

    Promising review: "I received this dress today, and I absolutely love it. I was looking for a breathable, versatile dress that could be worn for all occasions, and THIS IS IT! I will wear it to work, on a plane, to a bar, you name it, I'll wear it. It's perfectly feminine. I think that simple pieces are often the hardest to find." —LJ58

    Price: $49.50 (available in sizes XXS-XXL and four colors)

    3. A pair of white high-rise jeans with a cropped, kicky hem that'll pair perfectly with any top you put it with.

    Promising review: "Easily the best white pants I have ever purchased. Cute kick at hem, very comfortable, and modern. These pants are NOT see-through. The higher riser is very flattering. Every time I wear them, I am asked 'where did you buy?' " —AML 40

    Price: $125 (available in sizes 23-32, including petite and tall sizes)

    4. A linen V-neck pocket T-shirt that is lightweight but not too sheer.

    Promising review: "This shirt is a fantastic change from your average cotton T-shirt. The linen weave gives it nice texture and it looks perfect with breezy linen pants for summer. The V hits just right." —ScruffyCityGirl

    Price: $39.50 (available in sizes XXS-3X and 7 colors)

    5. A tailored linen shirt sure to be a staple in your warm-weather wardrobe.

    Promising review: "This shirt is so worth it! I'm so excited about the quality of this linen. I bought it in white and I don't feel like I need a cami underneath, which is a major plus for me. There is enough substance to it that you don't see straight through it and yet it looks and feels like it will be lightweight and comfortable on warm days. Also, it fits very true to size. Love it." —Stylegirl100

    Price: $60 (originally $79.50, available in sizes 00-24 including tall and petite sizes, and six colors)

    6. A white V-neck denim jumpsuit with a not-too-loose, not-too-tight fit to create a perfectly relaxed leg.

    J. Crew

    Promising review: "I don't think it matters what your body type is with this jumpsuit because you're going to look amazing. I love the fit and fabric. I absolutely love it and cannot wait to wear it with a cropped jacket a pair of pumps or block-heeled sandals. If you're on the fence about purchasing this item, I recommend you give it a try, I think you'll love it." —AnnieofNVA

    Price: $123.99 (originally $138, available in sizes 00-16)

    7. A tie-back tank top made from an environmentally friendly fabric that incorporates 43% recycled poly — two water bottles are recycled for each top!

    J. Crew

    Promising review: "I live in Houston, and summer is brutal, so I'm thankful I picked up a couple of these tanks to wear on hot, humid days. These tanks can be untied and the back left open, or retied to make them more forgiving on the mid-section. Glad I purchased and love the colors offered!" —momofthree

    Price: $26.50 (available in sizes XXS-3X and six colors)

    8. Chino shorts with a hint of stretch and a 4-inch inseam that make them incredibly stylish and easy to move around in.

    Price: $49.50 (available in sizes 00-16 and eight colors)

    Promising review: "This is such a great everyday bag. Fits everything, comfortably and light weight. Love the additional attached small bag, perfect for this CV19 world. Put my mask and gloves in there for quick access." —Sandi

    Price: $75 (originally $168, available in three colors)

    10. Wide-leg jeans in a light blue wash featuring a cropped raw hem — aka your perfect summer pant.

    J. Crew

    Promising review: "These are the most comfortable pants I've ever owned, I adore them. They fit perfectly in the hips, and it's so nice not to have tightness all around my legs. Plus! The fabric is super duper soft and thin." —coconut

    Price: $128 (available in sizes 24-36)

    11. A halter wrap swim dress that is basically a swimsuit and a cover-up in one.

    J. Crew

    Promising review: " I bought this swim suit for a trip to Palm Springs and it is perfect! Flattering, comfortable and well made. After a winter of rainy days in Southern CA, putting this beautiful swimsuit on was a bit nerve wracking.... I love it and felt really good laying by the pool." —Sydney

    Price: $118 (available in sizes 0-16 and five colors)

    12. Oversized sunglasses with a subtle cateye to add a bit of flair to your summer eyewear rotation.

    Promising review: "I love these so much. They cover your face so no sun gets in. I wear them almost every second! I love them. I think about them when I am not wearing them. I want to wear them while I am at work." —sunglassesgal

    Price: $65 (available in seven colors)

    13. A pleated midi skirt you can pair with any top in your closet and automatically look put-together.

    Promising review: "It hits just below the knee and is super flattering! It is flowy without being puffy and moves really well. The quality is beautiful: the pleats are soft but even, there's a liner for an additional layer of opacity, and a grosgrain ribbon at the waist to keep things from sagging and losing their shape." —Susan

    Price: $33 (originally $110, available in sizes 00-24, and five colors)

    14. A pair of biker shorts with a high-rise double waistband and secret back pocket for all those little things you need when you're on-the-go.

    J. Crew

    Promising review: "If you grew up in the 90s as a kid, biker shorts were the GO TO. I know these are 'trendy' right now but I rocked biker shorts when they weren't - specifically for working out and overall dress and lounge comfort. These are so freaking forgiving and wonderful. I highly recommend these. You won't be disappointed!!" —Alexforjcrew

    Price: $45 (available in sizes XXS-3X and two colors)

    15. A short-sleeve crewneck sweater in a silk-blend for the days you're craving the comfort of a T-shirt, but need something a little more sophisticated.

    Promising review: "I started with one and now I have 12 of them in almost every single color. They are a staple in any closet. These are well done, soft and feels like you are not wearing anything at all. They fit just perfect with just that little tiny room to give that nice look!" —GQuiros

    Price: $75 (available in sizes XXS-3X and 12 colors)

    16. A pair of linen drawstring shorts you'll be sporting at home, at the beach, and everywhere in between.

    J. Crew

    Promising review: "We're all hunkered down at home - just trying to be comfortable. I realized all my shorts were tight and denim in nature. So when the weather started heating up, I began to seek a more comfy short. I LOVE THESE and will be living in them all summer. They are so comfy - but cute. They are not getting all weird and stretched out like linen usually does. The color is VIBRANT and amazing (I got the hot pink). Order these now!!" —katedoll

    Price: $49.50 (available in sizes XXS-3X and seven colors)

    17. Sandals with interlocking straps that take your basic summer slides up a notch.

    Promising review: "I like the way they look, and the price beats the designer versions! What's not to like? They are fine for dinner by the beach or a short shopping trip while on vacation somewhere exotic (will we ever get to have those again?). I pair mine with cropped white jeans, a breezy, black linen blouse, some gold hoops, and a good pedicure." —Kflo77

    Price: $32 (originally $79.50, available in sizes 5-12, and five colors)

    18. A pair of hoop earrings with little pearl charms that are as cute and versatile as they look.

    J. Crew

    Promising review: "They are super lightweight. Simple statement earrings that go well with any dress. Can’t go wrong with pearls and hoops!" —Risha123

    Price: $24.50

    19. A packable straw hat with a wide brim you'll be donning on all your summer adventures.

    Promising review: "I’ve gotten so many compliments when I wear this hat which is daily. It keeps the sun off of my face which I love because I don’t always remember to use sunscreen. It packs like a dream! I took it on a flight and folded it carefully with no problem. I keep it folded up in my bag and pull it out when I need it. Brilliant!" —Jean

    Price: $59.50 (available in three sizes)

    20. A layering tank in a breezy slub cotton that's great over a sports bra or under a sweatshirt.

    J. Crew

    Promising review: "I bought this tank top to wear underneath sweaters and sweatshirts. It comes longer (past the hips), which looks great underneath other pieces and not sloppy. The X Small was perfect - flows nice but not too baggy under the arms. Would definitely get this in other colors!" —Jessabell

    Price: $8.99+ (originaly $29.50, available in sizes XXS-3X, and four colors)

    21. A pair of wide-leg jeans in a pin-stripe print, which obviously makes them even cuter.

    J. Crew

    Promising review: "I really like these pants. The length is great. The fabric is a nice weight/thickness so even though they are white, they are not see through. The navy stripe is really cute and makes them stand out. Also, they are quite comfortable. I also really appreciate that these pants are a part of J. Crew's sustainability efforts." —Luxette

    Price: $89.50 (available in sizes 24-37 including petite and tall sizes)

    22. A tiered maxi dress you can easily slip on in the mornings. You'll be rocking this dress all day long.

    J. Crew

    Promising review: "Love this dress! Perfect and easy just as I hoped it would be. I ordered the navy but will be adding at least one or two more colors as I can see it being an easy staple this summer. It does fit true to size as it fits the model, sort of a lose/relaxed fit. If you want it more snug, size down but I prefer the looser look for this dress! Good work J.Crew!" —maggie

    Price: $68 (available in sizes XXS-3X and four colors)

    23. A satin knot headband that'll come to the rescue on days when your hair just isn't having it.

    Promising review: "I love how easily this headband can transform a simple outfit into something special! This headband is great quality, comfortable, and the color is gorgeous!" —Emily D

    Price: $29.50 (available in two colors)

    24. A midi dress in embroidered chiffon because you deserve to feel dressy — even if there's nowhere to go.

    J. Crew

    Promising review: "I had high expectations for this dress, and it did not disappoint. The chiffon is substantial yet airy and doesn’t have that cheap polyester sheen. The strips of embroidery add interest, and their convergence at the waist on the skirt really enhances the fit. The length and cut of this dress are so classy, and the chiffon outer layer flows in a beautiful way. Overall, it’s simply a lovely, classic piece that reads more expensive than it is." —DocJ

    Price: $149.99+ (originally $198, available in sizes 00-14, and three colors)

    25. A calf hair belt in leopard you can pair with shorts, jeans, and even dresses — it'll makes accessorizing this summer easier than ever.

    J. Crew

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this belt and have worn it almost daily since purchasing it in February. It’s classic and gives a nice pop to an outfit without looking ‘trend of the moment.' I had been looking for a leopard belt and this was definitely the right one! At the end of the day, give this belt a chance; you won’t be disappointed!" —Allison

    Price: $65
