One of the big trends being talked about for 2024 is cropped tops. Not so short to bare your belly, but just snipped enough for a boxy fit up top, to show off your relaxed pants. A&F already makes some of the best sweatshirts for your money—the only problem is that they often sell out. The brand just introduced this cropped hoodie style in a range of colors, all with the same enzyme wash for a smooth, soft finish that feels like you've had the sweatshirt for years. But you'd better get it now before these sell out, too.

New year, new scent. Why not use this fresh start to rethink your personal fragrance lineup? Jack Henry's latest cologne is a contemporary, unique fragrance inspired by energy, rebirth and a burst of fresh inspiration—which is what we could all use in 2024, right? The brand says the motivation behind the masculine, slightly spicy scent was to utilize fragrance notes that are scientifically proven to reduce stress and anxiety, while promoting positivity and evoking energy. What has your old cologne done for you lately?

What do you get when you cross a workwear jacket and a luxe wool cardigan? I'm guessing this cozy zip-up hybrid of a sweater. Knit from a rugged yet soft boiled wool, it's made with a process called “fulling,” which makes the fabric compact—and that's why this sweater-jacket is so dense, smooth and warm. This is one of those pieces that you didn't know you needed until you pull it on and then you find yourself never wanting to be without it.

You can't always have a Negroni when you want (or need) one. This is an uncomfortable truth that I'm made painfully aware of at work all the time. But this little tube of lip balm, originally commissioned by Campari, features a flavor profile of spiced orange peel and juniper that does the classic cocktail justice without any real booze. Plus, the moisturizing formula of beeswax, jojoba, safflower oil and shea butter feels great on your lips.

Is one of your resolutions getting organized in the new year? These boxes make for a handsome way to hide clutter. Target's in-house brand, Threshold, continues their partnership with the interior designers at Studio McGee on a line of furniture and accessories—all at affordable prices. These boxes, covered in a faux shagreen leather, have a rich texture but will only set you back 15 to 20 bucks, depending on the size. At that price, you can get two—one for your desk and another for your coffee table or entryway.
