These could be your shoes of the summer. Somewhere between your house shoes and some classic espadrilles, these suede slides can pretty much be worn in any situation. Crafted from genuine Kenyan leather in a soft nubuck finish, they're finished with traditional jute soles (with vulcanized rubber for added durability). Available in four different shades, we're eager to see how the sandy suede will wear and darken over the season.

We may never get as much sleep as we should. But we don't have to look sleep-deprived. The makers of one of our favorite sheet masks has just released these clear eye gels. Packed with antioxidants and enriched with a bakuchiol formula—a natural alternative to retinol that is gentle on skin—that provides anti-aging, hydrating and brightening benefits, you simply slap them on after your morning shower. Fifteen minutes later you look fresher and like you slept a solid eight hours. (Pro tip: Store them in the fridge for extra cooling and de-puffing.)

This is a simple-looking tote that packs a serious punch. Cut from heavyweight canvas, with a wider profile for a lower center of gravity than typical totes, the J. Stark's Beachwood bag offers easier access to all the things you'll carry this summer and beyond. There's an interior pocket for keys or phones, but the standout is the wide sleeve on the outside of the tote for sliding in a yoga mat, beach towel, umbrella, or maybe even a couple fresh baguettes.

Not quite ready for “thigh guy summer”? Then these 7-inch shorts might be the compromise you're looking for. Taking inspiration from vintage soccer shorts, the poly-knit fabric has a tonal plaid pattern and a just-high-enough inseam to look modern.

Okay, we'll admit it ... you don't need this. But it looks damn cool sitting on a desk or coffee table. Based on an antique found in a dusty old store, the bottom is scored so you can easily shake out a match and light it quickly. And when you're out of them, just refill that handy little bottle. If you don't need matches, they also sell one stocked with toothpicks.
