We turned to our friends at Style Girlfriend to do just that. Here are the new pieces Brittany Hammonds, the site’s online editor, is liking right now.

Attention-grabbing yet versatile enough to carry around all year.

A buttonless polo shirt? Be still, my beating heart. Okay, maybe that’s a tad over the top but the sentiment still stands. Consider this muted striped shirt to be the push-up bra of men’s fashion. The chest-high stripes will draw eyes to your face just as the slightly shorter sleeves pull focus to the bicep region.$36

Now, I’m not suggesting you need clean up your act, you dirty dog. But wanting to avoid adult acne with a multi-purpose face wash is worth adding to your daily routine. Hot tip: The ingredients include arnica montana, which will de-puff your face in a pinch after a long night.$20
