It's a balance when it comes to sunglasses. You want the quality to be high and the protection to be ample, but you don't want to spend too much, right? That's why we love Raen's glasses. They're stylish, well-built and reasonably priced. The frames are crafted from sturdy acetate and the hinges are nearly indestructible, while the lenses are polarized to minimize glare. And each pair comes with a sleek, protective hard case and lens cloth to help keep your frames in the best shape for years to come.

Right now, you want your shorts to give you a little room. They should flare out, just a tad. You don't want them skimming your thigh. This pair, from Frame, is the perfect example. Made from lightweight cotton twill, they're finished with a drawstring elasticized waistband and oversized patch pockets.

If you're looking for a hardworking, durable watch for the summer, this is it. Inspired by the 1970s Q Timex, the watch has a Japan-sourced, self-winding movement that boasts an impressive 40-hour power reserve. The solid-link construction on the bracelet provides more throwback style and added dimension. Water-resistant up to 50 meters, the stainless steel construction is also highly resistant to scratches, corrosion and tarnishes, so go ahead and wear it on any and all adventures.

We like the laidback, louche vibe of this polo. Inspired by the terry cloth shirts of the 1960s, Buck Mason's latest shirt is made from a “cotton nylon blend reverse jersey in a fine high gauge knit,” the brand tells us. That's fashion industry speak for a finely textured knit fabric that looks a little like something from the 1970s, but cut to fit and feel comfortable and sexy in 2024.

Not ready to give up your layers? This piece from Save Khaki is tailored like a chore jacket, but made from soft, lightweight poplin fabric that's been garment-dyed and pre-shrunk to uniquely age through wash and wear. So it's no more heavy than simply wearing a cotton button-down. Throw it over a T-shirt or tank to instantly upgrade your warm weather look, without fear of overheating or sweating.
