We really like these pants. They're comfortable and cool, with just enough throwback '90s vibes to make them feel interesting. Dockers worked with Urban Outfitters to bring back these pleated pants in a vintage-inspired relaxed fit, but updated them just enough to feel fresh in 2020. They'll work right now and be your go-to all spring and summer too. If you've been on the fence about whether to dip your toe into the pleated pants pool, this is the ideal pair at an entry-level price.

There's something nostalgic about these kicks. J.Crew continues their collaboration with Vans by producing the famous Authentic sneaker—the company's first shoe design—with a canvas upper in a subtle leopard print. The olive drab coloring keeps it from feeling too graphic, meaning the pattern is less wild and more of a wink. They look as though they could be from the '70s and yet they feel very much right now.

Only you'll know this cost twenty bucks. Uniqlo's latest collection with French designer Christophe Lemaire for the brand's popular U line features a muted, largely neutral palette. And the silhouettes are relaxed and slightly oversized. This all adds up to making the pieces look and feel very "designer." This simple T-shirt could be worn with everything from chinos or patterned trousers to jeans or sweats and still look sharp. And because it's made from a unique compact jersey fabric that was sewn using 26-count double ply thread, it'll last you too.

Flex your brain at the gym. Or, at least, your good taste. Independent production company, A24, has been killing it in the merch department lately, so why not release some unisex gym shorts? The simple black mesh pair features the company's now ubiquitous logo along the sides, but are actually pretty understated. They tell the world that you're active and down for a bootcamp, but also ready to crash on the couch and stream The Lighthouse or Uncut Gems.

This jacket is an easy transitional layer. Cut from a hardy and lightweight blend of organic cotton and hemp, it's a durable jacket that's comfortable and packable too. The design is inspired by vintage coaches jackets, complete with snap buttons, elastic cuffs and an adjustable drawcord at the waist. We particularly like the large chest pocket and anti-pilling finish, engineered to help improve the lifespan of the jacket.
