This is a shirt that punches well above its weight. Made from 100% organic cotton at a lean 4-oz weight, it's been garment dyed and washed for a vintage look and feel. With an easy-going camp collar and wide front placket, it looks great on its own, worn open over a tank or buttoned up under a jacket. It's the type of shirt you'll find yourself reaching for all summer.

There is no shortage of nylon shorts these days. But that doesn't mean that some aren't better than the rest. JIMMY is new brand that just launched with an edited collection of simple yet stylish tees and tanks, but the standout product is definitely the label's A-short. Cut and sewn in the United States from a premium two-ply nylon (in a range of colors), the fit has been perfected with a 4.5-inch inseam and slight belled shape. In short, they look cool while feeling incredibly comfortable. What more can you ask for?

We ask a lot of our sunscreen. It should be good for your skin and easy to apply and now, ideally, we don't want the chemicals to cause any problems for the environment. Utu, a new sunscreen brand (named for the ancient Sumerian sun god) is on a mission to do just that. They're offering UV protection and skincare nourishment with a reef-safe, aquatic-friendly and cruelty-free formula that packs in hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid and squalane. Meanwhile, Vitamin C and sesame seed oil work to brighten the skin and tamp back inflammation. Oh and the cool, metal tube means that the packaging is easily recyclable and completely plastic-free.

The best part about this system? You can customize it to your needs. Inspired by iconic designs of the 1950s and '60s, West Elm's new modular shelving sets allow you to mix and match to build out the ideal display, storage and/or workspace solution. Constructed from handsome, varnished rubber wood, the streamlined shape is attractive, yet subtle. It blends in perfectly with any room, plus the modular functionality allows you to add on other pieces in the collection down the road.

Are you ready for “big mule summer”? The latest iteration of the slip-on shoes are backless loafers, and this version from G.H. Bass lobs off the back of their classic Weejuns for a modern take that's easy to wear with shorts and relaxed, wide-leg pants. They've got a sleek, low-profile silhouette and are available in classic shades of black, burgundy and a jazzy two-tone black with white vamp.
