Is this the ideal cover for transitional weather? Perhaps. Cut like a shirt jacket, but knit like a sweater from a soft yet sturdy cotton blend, it's the best of both worlds. Available in a dark, charcoal grey and this creamy off-white, it's finished with generous pockets and oversized, vintage-inspired buttons. Wear it as you would a zip-up hoodie—it'll feel just as cozy but you'll look way more put-together.

This is the closest we'll probably come to cooking with the always-cool Stanley Tucci. The actor and known foodie—who hosted one of our favorite culinary travel shows—just collaborated with GreenPan on his own line of cookware. Each pan is meticulously handcrafted in (where else?) Italy and made with the brand's innovative ceramic coating that's non-stick yet omits all the questionable chemicals that are harmful to both the environment and our health. But it's the style that really sold us—that rich blue color of the pans and the grooved stainless steel handles.

Upgrade your coffee table. You already have a candle on there (right!?), so place this small, stylish match striker next to it. Each one is hand-poured using concrete, giving them a distinct look and a marble-like finish. When you need a flame—for a candle, incense or anything else that might need a light—simply pull out a match and flick it against the integrated striker pad. And unlike some, this one comes with 70 matches to get you started.

This is a gentleman's polo. Designer Billy Reid decided to craft a more refined take on the traditional polo. He cut it from a supremely soft cotton blend fabric that's been knit with a subtle herringbone texture. It's been tailored for a relaxed fit, yet it still accents your shoulders and chest in all the right ways. The finishing touches, from the slightly longer placket to the twill tape details inside the collar, all telegraph that this is an elevated take. Which is why it looks as good with jeans as it does under a blazer.

Why spend a lot for workwear? Get the real deal and you get just that—a deal. And if you want a more modern take on the classic work pants, this exclusive pair of Dickies, available only at Urban Outfitters, will do the trick. Made from a durable cotton twill, it's cut in a straight-leg fit with a raw edge for a slightly cropped hem. The pants are finished with authentic details—from the wide belt loops to the tab waist closure. They come in six shades, but we're partial to the classic navy colorway. And just like the regular Dickies, these will get even softer and better-fitting the more you wear and wash them.
