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.

Usually the Super Trooper jokes would write themselves, but these Rogue Territory shorts are surprisingly stylish and still functional enough to wear right meow. The sturdy twill can make it through any daytime journey or a few (read: many) skipped washes while maintaining their shape and color. Pro tip: To avoid a bulky look, don’t actually fill up the oversized pockets.$140
Even if you’re not-so-nautical, a woven waxed cord belt is always a splashy summer addition. It adds just enough unexpected detail to any outfit without drawing too much attention at the office. Pair it with your trusty chinos and a OCBD for work or with patterned shorts and a henley when you’re off duty.$150
Can the owner of this sweatshirt jacket whip up a mean stack of pancakes in a remote cabin? Probably. Does he also know how to start a bonfire on a secluded beach? Likely. There’s something rugged yet comforting about the structured look of this cotton jacket that makes it the Ryan Gosling of summer outerwear.$98
A handmade accessory with an interesting back story is a surefire way liven up any staple look this season. I love that the bright color is still neutral enough to work its way into a dressier date night look with dark denim and a dress shirt while adding just enough flair to a simple pool day getup.$75
This conversation-starting piece is perfect for any outdoor event where you’re hoping to fla-mingle*. At first glance it looks like a classic 6-panel cap, but the embroidered detail takes it to the next level when styled with a bold graphic tee and boardshorts or light wash denim and a white tee. *I know, I know. I’ll see myself out…$39
