This shirt will be your wingman. The bold color and surreal pattern is a guaranteed conversation starter. California's Wellen brand just released a collection inspired by the bold colors and rich textures of Oaxaca. Case in point, the laid-back print of this camp collar shirt draws its inspiration from the shores of Puerto Escondido and its rich flora and fauna. Made from slubby organic cotton with a soft, subtly textured handfeel, it's finished with custom sunburst buttons and a single chest pocket (perfect for your shades).

You know what's cooler than linen pants? These hybrid cargos. They've been given a wash treatment for a vintage, worn-in look and are made from a highly breathable cotton-hemp blend fabric—which means they feel great on. Even in the hottest summer temps. Plus, the generous surplus-inspired design looks like something from an upscale Japanese label, not J.Crew's kid brother brand.

Don't let the fun stop just because the sun went down. Summer evenings are great, you just need a little illumination. Zara is an underrated source for home goods, but this lantern is incredibly high quality for the price. The top is made from blacked metal and the bottom is a durable polyethylene plastic (meaning no breakage). You charge the battery via USB and one charge will offer hours of illumination.

This is a blazer that's anything but dainty. If you don't already subscribe to our new shopping newsletter, The Obtainer, then you might've missed out on this deal. But it's too good not to share. A little bit workwear, a little bit preppy, it's cut from garment-dyed cotton in a relaxed, unstructured silhouette. The simple patch pockets (on the exterior and interior of the jacket) give it a chore jacket vibe, but the notched lapel means you can toss this on to polish whatever fit you're wearing. It's good for work, great for traveling and will no doubt become a wardrobe workhorse for you.

Want an elegant watch that's unique yet understated? Try this completely sustainable (and ergonomic) timepiece from Solios. Born out of an incredibly successful Kickstarter that tripled their campaign goal, Solios makes solar-powered watches that are crafted from natural, recycled materials. Their latest, the Curve, features a subtle curved case that mimics the shape of your wrist, finished with a minimalist dial and round, off-set date window, all under a durable infinity sapphire crystal that prevents scratches. Just two hours of sunlight will power the watch for six months.
