EDITOR'S PICK: J BRAND
we help you find your new summer essentials.
And that's more or less what we've done: We asked our web team to pick their warm weather essentials. Here are their editors' picks:
Who: Rebecca Willa Davis, executive web editor
Rita Leather Tank - $357
"I usually retire my leather jacket for the summer, but that doesn't mean I have to stay away from the material altogether; pair this tank with some cut-offs and you'll look (and feel) cool all summer long."
Nash Shorts - $176
"What happens when you mix the boyfriend jean with the cut-off short. They're perfect for when you want to jump on a bike and ride out to the beach."
Marisa Dress - $297
"This dress is just floaty enough for summer, without losing its edge. I'd pile on the chunky jewelry and pair it with a bright coral lip, but it also looks rad on its own."
Who: Ray Siegel, senior web editor
Slouchy Overall - $345
"My overall wearing ways have earned me the nickname 'Osh Kosh' by my close friends. They're perfect for casual Friday's at NYLON--or I'd dress it up with all-black and a pointy-toe heel."
Frida Crew - $95
"As long as I have a fully-stocked white T-shirt collection, I'm happy. This one is the perfect weight, the sleeves hit at just the right spot, and it's not too loose or too tight. I'd wear with everything, everywhere."
Patti Chino Trouser - $153
"You'd think it'd be simple, but finding a slim fit black pant is almost impossible. Behold, the perfect Audrey Hepburn-esque pair from J Brand."
Who: Ali Hoffman, web editor Her Picks:
Gwyneth Dress - $795
"I mean, come on, it's called the Gwyneth Dress and it looks pretty identical to the one she wore the Academy Awards in '96 (when she attended with her beau, Brad Pitt). I would definitely love to pair it with some chic black leather sandals and a ton of silver jewelry."
Minnie Long Sleeve Sweatshirt - $165
"Everyone needs the perfect grey pullover--and this one will quickly become a staple in my closet. I plan on tossing it in a beach tote on weekend jaunts to the water, and pulling it on over my bathing suit when it starts to get windy."
High-Rise Short - $165
"I love these shorts because they look like I found them in a stack of cutoffs at a vintage store--but they fit unlike any vintage pair I've bought. Not too short, not too tight, and will definitely go with anything and everything. Yep, I'll be wearing these babies all summer long."
