Our discoveries are nice to behold—they’re lovely to look at and inspire fun conversation—however, of all the tempting things to buy, what did we actually end up purchasing? Each month we’ll highlight those special finds our editors welcomed into their lives—all the things that made us buyers rejoice.

Vogue Editors’ Picks:

The Beachwear Classics

“After adding two pairs of elevated leather flip flops to my summer footwear rotation this season, I thought it was time to add a more beach-friendly version to take on vacation in July. Havaiana’s rubber pairs are a classic and ring in at $30—a no brainer! And after lusting after The Row’s perfect red silk button down, I settled on an affordable option from Banana Republic to get the look for summer.” —Madeline Fass, senior shopping market editor

The Striped Boxer Shorts

“Boxer shorts are in their chic era! Perfect for staying cool in the summer heat, I bought this pinstripe pair from Aritzia on a whim but have been wearing it nonstop—to the supermarket, to the beach, to bed, anything goes!” —Talia Abbas, senior shopping editor

The Denim Maxiskirt

“After a full twelve months of humming and hawing over the long denim skirt trend I finally caved for this cargo green one from Ulla Johnson (currently on sale, you’re welcome!). Don’t sleep on Johnson’s denim, co-created by the denim whisperer (Benjamin Talley Smith): it’s excellently cut, and sturdy without being restrictive. So far I’ve been pairing this high-waisted skirt with T-shirts or crisp button-downs, sandals, and plenty gold jewelry (love the gold button detail!) and I’m looking forward to mixing it into the fall mix with high boots and knits of all weights.” —Daisy Shaw-Ellis, jewelry director

The Matching Linen Set

“Whether you’re enjoying summer at home or abroad, linen is always a great choice. This two-piece ensemble from Tuckernuck is an ideal warm-weather essential. The elevated details like the mandarin collar and flared sleeves add sophistication, while the comfortable fit makes it perfect for everyday wear. I chose the black colorway because it goes with everything, but I’m already eyeing the tan tone for my next purchase.” —Eliseé Browchuk, experiences production and marketing manager

The Dressed-Up Short Shorts

“Add me to the list of ever-growing short-short enthusiasts, along with all of the internet’s favorite heartthrobs. Whoever decided that boxer shorts are fully appropriate to wear out (was it you, Bella Hadid?), please know I love you. These white boxers from Oddli are a regular in my suitcase as I travel this summer and temperatures keep climbing. I like to dress them up with a pair of kitten heels (my go-to micro heels are from Reformation) or lean into casual comfort with my favorite trainers. I sported them all around Paris this summer with my new favorite pair of YSL sunglasses in my desperate pursuit to find an air-conditioned room.” —Conçetta Ciarlo, events associate manager

The ’90s-Inspired Shades

“I’m an overpacker and this Libertine x LeSportsac tote bag may be the cure for my affliction. The bold striped pattern is a fashion statement of itself, and the colors match every travel sweat set I own. The bag is so lightweight and durable that I squish it up in my suitcase, so that when I go shopping at my final destination, I’ll have a vessel to bring my treasures back home in. Oh and if you haven’t heard, the name on everyone’s lips this summer is Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy, and I’m determined to channel her timeless elegance in my own wardrobe. Starting from the top down, I’ve sourced these handmade French sunglasses aptly named “The Carolyn” from Selima Optique, to sport all summer long.” —Lea Donenberg, associate producer

The Summer Tie-Dye

“In case you haven’t heard, tie-dye has made a comeback! I recently snagged a couple of fun tie-dye pieces from Proenza Schouler White Label, including this full-length dress. The playful print isn’t the only thing that makes it a summer staple, though—the soft, stretchy fabric and sleeveless silhouette make it an easy, breezy choice for hot days. The best part: it can easily be dressed up with jewelry and heeled sandals, or dressed down with ballet flats or white sneakers.” —Alexandra Ditch, associate commerce producer

The Summer Wardrobe Staples

“In June, I officially hopped on the jort train. I picked up this pair from SER.O.YA earlier in the month and I now find myself grabbing for them more than I would like to admit. When I’m not wearing my new favorite shorts, I am usually in a dress and this one from The Garment via The Frankie Shop is a recent favorite. It can be worn as a coverup to the beach or out at night with some chunky jewelry and a strappy sandal.”—Taylor Lashley, social media manager

The Designer Collab

“Each season I feel like I have to size up clothes for my kids so now that summer is here I recently purchased kids shorts and short sleeve PJ sets for my kids. I also went wild with the Gap x Dôen collaboration but it will probably be sold out again by the time this post goes live!” —Chloe Malle, Editor, Vogue.com

The Versatile Statement Necklace

“While many are busy preparing for summer vacations under the sun, my focus has been fixated on finding the perfect investment piece. I was looking for a gold statement necklace that could elevate an everyday white T-shirt and add something unexpected to a little black dress for a special evening out. When I discovered IVI Los Angeles, a contemporary jewelry brand by Ivi Kyratzi, I knew her timeless approach to design was exactly my vibe, and fell in love with the Gaia necklace. Worn with a one-piece and a cover-up to a beach day-turned-happy hour or a pair of jeans to the office, the versatility of this necklace is limitless.” —Eliseé Browchuk, experiences production and marketing manager

The Lightweight White Co-Ords

“My favorite summer looks are all-white looks, and for my seasonal upgrade I wanted to add some new silhouettes and textures to the mix. I needed to have this poplin Matteau skirt the moment it landed on NAP (it has a very The Row vibe to it!) and wanted to pair it with something unexpected but still tonal. I fell in love with this summer knit tank from Rohé, which is even better in person. It’s not cut too deep from the side and looks so good with linen trousers and this other pleated midiskirt I got from Vince as well.” —Talia Abbas, senior shopping editor

The Summer Denim

“Anyone who knows me well enough will know that Dôen is my favorite brand. This month they collabed with Gap for a small capsule collection and I almost bought everything. My favorites include the wide-leg pants that come in a light khaki and denim fabric that’s going to be perfect for the summer because I will never give up on wearing long pants no matter how hot it gets! On the topic of pants I have also been exploring shorter lengths with a pair of capri jeggings from Rag & Bone (although I’m not completely sold yet on the concept).” —Irene Kim, production and editorial coordinator, Vogue Runway

Also I am available for auditions for Challengers 2: Re-Challenged, if anyone was wondering.” —Lucy Dolan-Zalaznick, creative development senior associate

Splits59 has the softest, bounciest rib fabric I’ve found so far although I also like the WSLY ones for a semi-sheer look if you dare.” —Arden Fanning Andrews, Beauty Editor at Large

The Matching Workout Set

“I frequent my local Pure Barre most days and noticed everyone wearing these leggings with a neon green/yellow logo. It took me (embarrassingly) too long to figure out it was the Aritzia Activewear brand. I am very much my father’s daughter (I am very sweaty). Due to this horrible affliction, I am usually an only-work-out-in-black type of girl. However, I was feeling reckless and—for my first purchase from this line—bought a light gray set. I never believe when fabrics call themselves sweat-wicking, but these really are. I’m now showing up to all my Pure Barre classes in different colors and in the same style. I’m almost as obsessed with them as with Pure Barre, but it’s a close second. ” —Sache Taylor, Events Manager

I love wearing black and white because it pairs well with absolutely everything—especially my funky printed vintage finds.” —Conçetta Ciarlo, events associate manager

“I caved. Just when I thought I was done lusting after (and buying) Wales Bonner’s Adidas collab pieces, she dropped what might be my favorite offering yet: a more pared-back, cream version with cobalt blue croc stripes. They’ll definitely be my go-to sneaker this summer, in and out of the office. Long live the Samba—as long as WB has a hand in it.” —Madeleine Schulz, Vogue Business Reporter

Maybe I’m looking for artisanal honey, or perhaps a carton of eggs. One thing is for sure: I will be buying bouquets of flowers—and this Sezane tote bag is the perfect vessel for all my goodies. I am coveting this piece and I think Jeremy Allen White should grab one for his summertime farmers market runs too.” —Lea Donenberg, associate producer

“Now that the days are longer and it stays light out later into the evening, I’ve been embracing after-work walks. Naturally, this meant I needed a new pair of sneakers for the occasion. I wanted something chunky and sporty, so I landed on these Asics—and I’m loving them. I’ve also been itching to get in on the long shorts trend (if you told me four years ago I’d say this, I wouldn’t believe you). To add to my weekend wardrobe, I went with these effortlessly cool Agolde denim shorts. I’m looking forward to pairing them with an oversized tee and some ballet flats.” —Sam Ravin, creative development senior associate

I’m inspired by the many belly-pierced greats around me like Tyla, Dua Lipa, and Megan Thee Stallion who have helped revive the early-aughts trend. Take this as a sign to rock some form of fun, decorative jewelry on your own this summer, whether it be an anklet, new earrings, or yes—even a belly ring.” —Maya Layne, entertainment associate

“I recently purchased Good American’s ‘Fit for Success’ jumpsuit, and every time I slip into it, I feel that it lives up to its name. It has quickly become one of my favorite wardrobe staples. The denim is equal parts soft and stretchy, making it super easy to wear to the office, to run errands around the city, or for anything in between. As a proud outfit repeater, I know I’ll be wearing this all year round, styled with a white turtleneck underneath in the colder months. But for the spring and summer, it’s the perfect one-and-done outfit.” —Alexandra Ditch, associate commerce producer

The Best Ballet Flats

“I bought my first pair of ballet flats from Aeyde this past summer in Paris. I had to go to four different department stores because they were just completely sold out, and I finally found them in my size at Le Bon Marché. Not only did the sales associate tell me that I was super-lucky because I got the last pair available in stores, she mentioned that Aeyde was really rising in popularity amongs Parisians for its affordable but high-quality shoes that are super-comfortable. This month I got two new pairs, the Uma and the Gabriella, which I’m excited to add to my spring wardrobe. The blue satin version is really Cinderella-like and so dreamy!” —Irene Kim, production and editorial coordinator, Vogue Runway

I have somehow managed to wear these with jeans, camo pants, skirts, and sweats, and I don’t plan on stopping there.
