Have you heard the good news? J.Crew is cool again, after taking on Noah's Brandon Babenzien as creative director, the brand has received a very stylish shot in the arm. Case in point, this soft cotton rugby shirt, resurrected from the archives. It's got a slight '90s throwback vibe and the bold color makes for a welcome pop of sunshine during the winter months.

Who's ready for an adventure? Because 18 East's new “Good Anywhere” collaboration with Bodega will make you want to get outside. The collection celebrates the New England roots of both brands and features a range of items, but this coat is the standout for us. Made in India from water-repellent nylon quilted with 100% recycled polyfil made from plastic water bottles, the pocket-heavy puffer has an old school vibe but a modern fit and feel.

These shoes are the ultimate 2022 shoes. Loafers feel like they've never been cooler at the moment. French footwear brand Paraboot makes some of the sturdiest and most comfortable on the market and this collaboration with British retailer HIP gives a classic model a modern edge. A raw cowhide vamp on top contrasts with the brushed suede and pebbled leather—all on top of a rubber lug sole. Slip 'em on and let the compliments roll in.

Okay, now let's get in formation. Beyonce's newest Ivy Park drop with adidas is finally here, just in time to spread some love for Valentine's Day. Dubbed “Ivy Heart,” the collection features dozens of items, all in red and pink colorways and embellished with Valentines-inspired patterns such as hearts and lips. The standout for us, though, is the heavyweight French terry hoodie with a relaxed fit and tonal heart.

We're living in the golden age of slip-ons right now. Clogs, mules and loafers of all sorts are among the coolest footwear you can slide into these days. Birkenstock made big waves a few years ago when they introduced their popular Arizona sandals in squishy EVA foam. Now, after the Boston clog enjoyed a WFH renaissance, the brand has introduced a similar textured clog in the same material, but with a sturdy cork footbed. As our friends at Huckberry put it: “when shoes this comfy are this cool, the means we're doing something right.”
