    1. A wide striped tee for giving off those sweet sailor vibes even when you can't make it to the beach.


    Promising review: "This shirt is exactly what I ordered. The fit was just right, and looked just like the pictures. The shirt is not very heavy, and also seems to be made of a thin material. This makes it a good shirt to wear durning some warm days. I ordered a small, and it fit just as expected. I will be keeping this shirt, and probably be getting different colors next." —BearReality

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and seven colors).

    2. A pretzel button-up sure to have you feelin' like a snack.

    Pyknic / Etsy

    This small business is based in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. They've got kooky mugs, patches, clothing, accessories, and more! Aaaand their Instagram is great. Give it a gander!

    Promising review: "I was worried that it was too big and boxy but after one wash it looks great. The orange part of the shirt actually catches the light in an interesting way. I love this shirt!" —Tiffany Pierskalla

    Get it from Pyknic on Etsy for $24.97 (available in sizes S–2XL).

    3. A pair of slim fit shorts that'll let your legs finally see the light of day after a winter trapped behind tight jeans, sweats, and your holiday flannel pajamas.,

    Promising review: "These shorts look and feel amazing. They have the comfort of a gym short while looking fashionable. These are the perfect shorts for beach visits and generally for summer. 10/10.P.S. I’d say stay they are true to size." —Luis Ugalde

    Get them from Amazon for $25.90 (available in sizes XS–3XL and 14 colors).

    4. A corduroy bucket hat so you can stare messy bed head in the face and say, "Not today!" This can also keep your scalp safe in the sun — we love a product that does it all!

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "I got this in purple and I had to go back and get the blue one! The corduroy material is so nice and goes with everything. It’s a little bigger than my other bucket hats but I have thick and curly hair so it fits perfectly. Definitely recommend." —eeliasal

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $19 (available in four colors).

    5. A pair of chinos — a versatile pant that's gonna look professional with a button down at work and practical when you just wanna throw on some nice pants and a tee.,

    Promising reviews: "These made me look good on the most important day of my birthday." —Amazon Customer

    "Normally when I buy my husband slacks, I am unable to find a short length and have to hem them. I bought him a waist size 33 and the length is 28. These slacks look like they were tailor made for him and we will be buying more of them in the future. These are very quality slacks and I would highly recommend." —Dennis Banning

    Get them from Amazon for $12.62+ (available in sizes 28x28–42x34 and nine colors).

    6. A trucker jacket for days when the spring breeze feels an awful lot like winter never really left.


    Promising review: "I purchased this jacket in the rigid two color and it really is beautiful. The material definitely feels like raw, unwashed denim which I was looking for. As a owner of a few pairs of raw denim jeans, I can say this denim feels like quality and I can say confidently that it will break in great over time and fade awesome. Overall a great jacket for the price and truly a American classic." —Kyle Page

    Get it on sale from Levi's for $71.41 (originally $89.50; available in sizes XS–3XL and six colors).

    7. A pair of Birkenstocks that'll hold up and look great no matter how many beaches you romantically walk along.,

    Promising review: "These were perfect for a muddy music festival weekend! Fit like every pair of Birkenstocks I've ever worn, and could be quickly rinsed off as often as necessary. The footbed even gave pleasantly as I walked, almost like the cork I'm used to. These have already proven themselves a good investment." —Mark H. Anbinder

    Get them from Amazon for $32.60+ (available in sizes 5–15 and 23 colors).

    8. A tattoo tee sure to be your go-to staple if you prefer an all black wardrobe, even when things start warming up. I has a flower. That's springy!

    Indomitable Co, IndomitableCo

    This small streetwear brand was established in 2020 in Los Angeles. Their Instagram has some great product shots of their pins, stickers, hats, and shirts — browse around!

    Promising review: "Shipping was fast. This is a good quality product that you won't regret." —Kusagaya Joshua

    Get it from Indomitable Co on Etsy for $25 (available in sizes S–XL).

    9. A set of two polarized sunglasses for keeping your eyeballs from melting outta your head when the sun is so hot you think spring is just a myth. It goes fall, winter, summer. End of list.,

    Promising review: "These arrived well packaged and with cleaning cloth, alongside a carrying pouch. They are certainly polarized but it is not so aggressive that you can't see your phone's screen like others. I'm a very picky customer and this satisfied me for this price. They're good for every day." —GALVANNY VEGA

    Get them from Amazon for $16.99 (available in 26 styles).

    10. A cotton linen top that'll look fashionable *and* be breathable throughout the day. If you'd prefer not letting everyone around you know just how much back sweat you produce once the temp hits 75 degrees...this just might be your perfect shirt.,

    Promising review: "This is the perfect shirt to stand out in a crowd. I have several of these in different colors and wear them with jeans, cotton slacks, and shorts. They are light weight cotton but can be worn over a t-shirt if you need more warmth." —Dennis D.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 19 colors).

    11. A pair of wingtip oxfords you can wear during the formal outdoor photographs your family has taken every spring. Enjoy walking around knowing your soles are as colorful as the language you plan on using to get your siblings to smile for the camera.

    Cole Haan Set A

    Promising review: "I love these shoes. They're super sharp. They have a clean look to them. I get lots of compliments on them." —Mark O.

    Get them from Cole Haan for $200 (available in sizes 7–13 and eight colors).

    12. A bomber jacket — a trendy layer that's light enough for folks who try and make layering season last as long as possible. Why? Because it's ~the bomb~!


    Promising review: "This is a stylish bomber jacket. It has a slim fit but you can still wear a hoodie underneath it if you want more layers. It’s not the warmest jacket out there, what I took into account was that it was going to be used to go to and from building to building or your car while out on the town. In conclusion it looks great." —Undead Abel

    Get it from Amazon for $56.67+ (available in sizes S–XXL and seven colors).

    13. A pair of corduroy shorts sure to please anyone who wants lighter clothing in the spring and summer, while still feeling covered by a hearty material. These shorts know that florals and linen are *not* everyone's cup of tea.

    Urban Outfitters

    BTW, these pants are made with 100% cotton and machine washable!

    Get them from Urban Outfitters for $62 (available in sizes S–XL and four colors).

    14. A tropical button down so eye-catching it's gonna make every A-type realize they've been dressing wrong all along. It's time to start wearing shirts as loud as you are!


    Promising review: "This looks awesome! It has a nice, slim fit design. I get compliments on this shirt all the time. All the tipsy elves Hawaiian shirts are fantastic." —ELDUDERINO

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95+ (available in sizes S–XXL and nine colors).

    15. Or a tailored paisley polo if you prefer a clean cut look that can be equal parts classic and cool.

    Jos. A. Banks

    This is made with 100% cotton and machine washable.

    Get it from Jos. A. Banks for $45 (available in sizes S–2X Tall).

    16. An animal print button down that'll have you lookin' 100% ready to strut down a cat walk. Rawr.,

    Promising review: "This fit exactly the way I wanted it to. It's somewhere between an American small and a European medium. The fabric feels premium and it isn't rigid at all, it drapes nicely across the torso. The print is great quality and doesn't look cheap. I'd say order your normal size if you want it to be fitted or a size up if you want it to be baggy." —Johnny B

    Get it from Amazon for $23.98 (available in sizes S–XXL and five patterns).

    17. A pair of white sneakers — a casual staple your warm weather wardrobe is gonna be lost without! The lightweight canvas is breathable and dries fast (which means they're great for riding Splash Mountain at Disneyland...if you, like me, rank all outfits according to how they're gonna perform at Disney).

    Person's feet wearing the white canvas sneakers and no show socks

    Promising review: "For the cost, one might assume that this shoe is of poor quality and will not last. I bought these years ago and they are still in excellent condition (with minimal upkeep). As long as you have obtained the right size, this shoe should be of excellent value for your money. I definitely recommend this." —Jay

    Get them from Amazon for $28+ (available in sizes 6–13 and two colors).

    18. A cloth bowling shirt that's equal parts casual and cool, with a loose fit that's great when the weather starts heating up, for anyone who want to look their best without ~sweating~ the small stuff.

    Urban Outfitters

    This is made with 100% viscose and is safe to machine wash.

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $54 (available in sizes S–XL and three colors).

    19. A rain jacket you're sure to be glad to have on hand when April showers take their job *very* seriously.


    Promising review: "I waited to write this review until I wore it a few times in the rain. I can say that it is indeed rain proof. It’s a well made jacket, it’s very comfortable and looks pretty good. The only negative thing about the jacket is that the zipper pull is reversed so you pull it up with your left hand instead of the right. Kind of like the location of the buttons on women’s shirts vs. men’s shirts. No big deal but I thought I would mention it. I would still recommend to a friend." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $49.96 (available in sizes S–XXL and six colors).

    20. A short-sleeved romper that'll be the best dang outfit you've ever bothered to brunch in.


    Promising review: "Who knew I could pull off a romper? All of the friends and family around on Labor Day weekend were excited to see me wearing a romper. I was the coolest kid on the block (and the most attractive). All of the women wanted my number...and I could pull my phone out of the POCKETS in this romper. If you're trying to decide if you should get this or not — DO IT!" —Alex Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and 17 colors).

    21. A StayCool sweater you can add to a minimalist wardrobe that's full of simple, functional pieces. The material is lightweight and breathable, which is great if you love pushing up long sleeves in the spring rather than wearing full on short sleeves. We love a V-neck sweater. At all times.

    Men's Wearhouse

    This moisture-wicking sweater has a UV shield and is machine washable.

    Get it from Men's Wearhouse for $44.99 (available in sizes M–XXL).

    22. A cityscape skull shirt and an exploded view record player tee for graphic tee fans who want a shirt that's neutral in color with a killer screen print.

    Black Lantern Studio

    This screen printing shop is owned and run by Kevin and Ginny in Estes Park, Colorado. Browse their page and you can find cups, hats, totes, coasters, and other items with original screen printed art.

    Promising review: "This arrived promptly and the quality is amazing. Don't ever buy cheap print tees, this is the real thing — the image is beautifully done. It's a super comfy, top quality tee." —malayee

    Get the skull and the record player for $28+ (available in S–2XL), both from Black Lantern Studio on Etsy.

    23. A pair of huaraches your feet are gonna be so glad you got. One day in these handcrafted shoes and your toes are gonna be toe-tally in love with these lightweight, breathable beauts.


    Promising review: "These are a great pair. They are comfortable after a couple wears. They were a little tight on the top part of the foot but they eventually stretch. I got lot of compliments. These are well made, don't hesitate to buy them!" —Javier

    Get it from Amazon for $140 (available in sizes 8–12).

    24. A sports coat sure to have you looking dapper for weddings, holidays, and times when you just need to stand in front of your mirror to admire your good looks.

    Jos. A. Banks

    Promising review: "The quality, fabric, and color are all outstanding. I was pleasantly surprised that the sport coat will require minimal tailoring. Also, the order was delivered very quickly. Many thanks!" —Paul C.

    Get it on sale from Jos. A. Banks for $89+ (originally $139; available in sizes 38 Short–50 Long and four colors).

    25. A pair of relaxed fit cargo pants with enough pockets to hide all the candy you sneak into movie theaters now that they're opening back up. Spending the spring and summer finding air conditioned events is the reason for the season, after all.


    Promising review: "The material is soft but feels durable. The cargo pockets are big, they are sewn to allow them to expand. I like that since I use those pockets at work. They fit comfortably, I have a little room to move around but they aren't baggy. They fit very nicely." —CrimsonAngel

    Get them from Amazon for $24+ (available in 29W-30L—54W-34L).

    26. A pair of French blue shorts that'll look good with every button down you have in your closet. Pack a punch with these pants and a pastel option, floral pick, or even plain white top. These make a statment no matter what you wear them with.

    Men's Wearhouse

    These dry-clean only pants have a slim fit with 2% spandex, so they'll move with you — no matter how wild your moves get on the dance floor.

    Get them from Men's Wearhouse for $79.99 (available in sizes 29–40).

    27. A corduroy button down — a useful layer for times when it's juuust cold enough to toss something over your favorite tee.


    Promising review: "I am pleased with the weight of material and quality of the stitching. I assumed it would run a little small and/or shrink some (100% cotton) so I ordered an XL instead of L. I'm glad I did because it fits well now and will allow for a little shrinkage over time. The pricing makes it a good value." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in sizes S–XXL and five colors).

    28. A pair of canvas slide-ons you're gonna love having on hand (well, on foot) during relaxing beach stays. Laces are way too much work for vacations!

    Men's Wearhouse

    Promising review: "These fit well, are very comfortable, and look good with shorts or dockers." —TanSL

    Get them on sale from Men's Wearhouse for $55.99 (originally $79.99; available in 8.5–13 and two colors).

    29. A short-sleeve polo so you can at least have the outfit down when your boo's parents invite you to play golf and you're a complete ~fish~ out of water. A "flub" doesn't sound like a good thing...but you seem to keep doing it anyway.

    Jos. A. Banks

    This has built-in spandex for some extra give. And, thank goodness, it's machine washable.

    Get it from Jos. A. Banks for $35 (available in sizes S–2X Big).

    30. A lightweight crewneck for casual days when comfort is key. Honestly? It might be worth just getting this in every color!

    Promising review: "I usually fit in a medium and sometimes have to upgrade to a small running large. I got this in a medium and it fit absolutely perfectly. The material is just thick enough to feel like a T-shirt you'd wear on the outside and not an undershirt and the color is a cool light mint with a hint of gray. Usually you'd have to spend a lot of money at one of the fast fashion brands for a shirt of this quality. It's nice to get a quality T-shirt at a fair price." —Bill P.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.21+ (available in sizes XS–3XL and 29 colors).

    31. A cotton romper that'll show off your keen fashion sense through your ability to ROCK an adult onesie. Good on ya!


    Owner Emily Rohm is a costume designer in Chicago, Illinois. The shop is filled with wedding day dresses and accessories, and the rompers available are part of the Rohm fashion line for everyday wear.

    Promising review: "This fits well and the sea foam color is relatively vibrant. I've never worn a romper, so the fit took a bit of getting used to. The waist is bit elastic/fitting, whereas the top is roomier. In warmer weather, I think that will help with airflow. I didn't take into account the amount of time to get it to me, so I only got to wear it once or twice before fall set in, but I'm excited when it gets warmer again." —Brandon Lueken

    Get it from Rohm on Etsy for $120 (available in S–XL and 16 colors).

    32. A pair of linen pants so perfect they're sure to show you that linen is the reason the term "a spring in your step" even exists. Once spring starts blooming linen comes out of hiding, and we're all better for it!


    Promising review: "These are comfy and a great price. They worked for a nice beach dinner and also work for weekend lounging." —TJB

    Get them from Amazon for $26.96 (available in sizes S–XXL and seven colors).

    33. And finally, a baseball cap you can wear in preparation for all the sporting events your boo is dragging you to now that "the games" are in full swing. It might drive them wild, but it'll at least give you a chuckle while you try and figure out how long a baseball game lasts. Fifteen hours? It feels like 15 hours.

    Brain Dazed

    BTW, this small business is located in LA!

    Promising review: "I love this hilarious hat. It's great quality and it was shipped out quickly. I would definitely shop again! :)" —kellyota
