Summer is a stylistic balancing act. You want to look good (obviously) but you also want to feel good, and that can be tough when temps approach triple digits. Since layering is out of the question, each individual piece you choose becomes even more important. Luckily, we turned to Megan Collins, the founder of Style Girlfriend, to help you out with those selections. This is what your girlfriend wants you to wear this summer when you’re heading out for the night.

Salt Surf Splatter Sweatshirt

DIY paint splatter can be hit or miss (literally), so let Salt Surf do the work for you with this handmade sweatshirt. Even better, it carries over seamlessly when the weather changes, so keep it handy when fall hits.


Shinola Six Pocket Card Case

Buying the next round? Don’t pull your credit card out of a jacked-up wallet. A six-pocket card case carries all you need (and nothing you don’t).


Mott + Bow Staple Denim

The folks at Mott + Bow trekked all the way to Italy for the denim in their new line of jeans (but don’t worry; their direct-to-consumer business model means you’re getting designer goods—but not paying designer prices). Pro tip: Don’t be afraid to try the “Skinny” fit. G’wan and show us what you’re working with.


Gitman Vintage Band Collar Striped Oxford Popover

Want to break away from the button-up pack? Try a band collar. This one from Gitman Vintage combines the detail with the ease of a popover—perfect with some jeans, rolled chinos, or even a pair of printed shorts.


Our Legacy Force Bomber

Since everyone is hot on the bomber jacket trail right now (everyone at SG HQ included), why not make things a little more interesting? Our Legacy has a great olive-based, all-over tie-dye number that’s muted enough to keep it feeling modern.


Hudson Pierre Suede Navy Loafer

Make no mistake: tasseled loafers are no longer limited to a wardrobe filled with smoking jackets and wooden pipes. You can style these shoes with more breezy pieces to keep even your casual looks feeling refined.


Paige Normandie - Navy Cadet

Swapping denim for Japanese twill, like this pair from Paige Denim, means a little more stretch and a lot more comfort. Plus, neutral navy makes them easy to work into the rest of your wardrobe, so completing your outfit will take you no time at all.


Mojave Ghost Eau De Parfum

Named for the enigmatic Mohavea Confertiflora (“ghost flower”) desert bloom, this Byredo scent gives hints of cedar and musk. Smell good, seem mysterious. It’s a win-win.


Ursa Major Stellar Shave Set

Women can roll with facial hair or a clean shave as long as her guy keeps up with the necessary maintenance. And don’t sleep on the moisturizing face balm, either. Even if you’re rocking a beard, your skin should still be soft.


Nomad Leather Case for iPhone

Your great style (and winning personality, natch) helped score you a phone number? Keep your game up when you go to type it in. The leather on Nomad’s minimal case only gets better with age, keeping your phone safe and stylish for a long time to come.
