This summer, go big. That is, size up a button-down shirt. Preferably one that's lightweight, like this linen style from Everlane. A boxier fit makes for a easy, breezy feel that's deliberately flowy. Layer it over a tank top or undershirt and wear it with some casual chinos to look at once relaxed and put-together.

Need some simple summer shoes? Inspired by Phil Knight's “Shoe Dog,” the Waffle Trainer 2 brings you classic Nike looks with a slim waffle sole and large retro Swoosh design. But the lightweight sneakers, in shades of beige, are also incredibly versatile. Plus, several fun details tell the story of Phil's time in Hawaii—including the hibiscus on the tongue and insole, passport stamp on the heel and Phil's signature on the midsole.

We just discovered this eyewear brand. But they've been around for a while. Founder and designer, Jon Yuan, is a protégé of the eyewear industry. His family started their own sunglasses company in Los Angeles over three decades ago, so he knows quality shades. The unisex glasses are flexible and durable, complete with scratch-resistance and glare reduction. Plus, the modern design comes in various colors to help you look distinctive in a crowd of similar frames.

This candle is a study in contradictions. Unlike most floral fragrances, Joya's new candle collection is inspired by tea ceremonies and incense rituals. Our favorite is the “Smoky Hinoki,” which blend the earthy scents of ash and palo santo wood with centering herbs like rosemary and a touch of fig sweetness. It's sexy and warm—which is perfect for summer, no?

Do you need leather bookends? Of course not. Do you want them after seeing them? Probably. This set of wooden bookends from Moore & Giles, wrapped in vegetable-tanned leather, works both vertically and horizontally on your bookshelf or desk. The refined column shape has a classic, mid-century vibe that's eternally in style and the leather will take on a handsome patina over time—meaning this is an modern heirloom that you'll have for years.
