A large part of the reason we try to look good is to impress the fairer sex. So it couldn’t hurt every once in a while to get a woman’s perspective on the clothing and accessories she’d prefer. 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.

I want to know this guy. The guy that has a sense of humor with his style while also looking undoubtedly polished. Barney Cools’ new button down series features embroidered details that range from funky flamingos to crabs—and it’s a guaranteed conversation starter. Give the sleeves a few tight cuffs, then pair it with colored chinos and white sneakers for a breezy look.$89
Full disclosure: I just think statement caps look cool. It’s completely subjective, but let’s pretend it’s rooted in summer fashion science. Norse Projects took a traditional 6-panel cap and added vintage details in the felt “N.” The vibrant orange pairs easily with simple outfits like dark denim and a Breton stripe sweater or short sleeved Henley.$59
A cotton-linen blend suit can be your sartorial secret weapon during the warm months because you’ll have the open weave to keep you cool and the cotton strength to reduce the inevitable linen wrinkles. I’ll always give a wink and a nod to a guy in a tailored summer suit with textured details like a cotton pocket square and patterned knit tie.$450
Matte black with gold details? I’m in. Whether you’re suited up for work or in a sharp pair of swim trunks at the beach, these lightweight shades are ideal for wearing all day. When it comes to sunglasses, don’t be afraid to switch it up and try something unique—just make sure to save on trendy pairs and invest in timeless styles.$160
This budding luxe-made-affordable shoe brand really is great. (Yikes, I couldn’t resist.) Greats harnesses a vertical business model to create high quality footwear that won’t break the bank. I love this pair inspired by menswear icon Nick Wooster; the unexpected cargo green, unique construction, and effortless vibe is a home run combination.$149
Never let ‘em see you sweat. Or at least never let ’em see your hair fall prey to sweltering summer days with this statement comb. Tuck this bad boy in your work bag or slip it in your pocket for a quick way to keep your look on point. It’s something I could see Jeff Goldblum carrying, and that alone is a pretty good reason.$5
