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.

Hear me out, guys. Spicoli just got dapper. These chukka-espadrille hybrids are deceptively easy to wear, and will land you some complimentary double takes. At first glance they read like a normal chukka, so you can style them with jeans or chinos and a simple tee or button down. The espadrille detail adds impressive visual interest without looking like they should stay at the beach.$165
If I was to relate any recent MVP to men’s wardrobes, the metaphor would boil down to the award-worthy power of a white dress shirt. I’ll save you the Watt and Curry references. That being said, investing in a white dress shirt will serve your wardrobe as a whole—whether you pair it with a navy suit, brown accessories, and white cotton pocket square (you can even skip the tie) or dress it down with dark denim, a patterned blazer, and leather loafers. Bonus points: Opt for an innovative fabric like this one from Ministry of Supply that employs moisture-wicking and sweat stain resistant fabric.$95
More stylish—and grown up—than your average gym bag. Whether you sling this sturdy duffel over your shoulder for a quick gym session before work or a weekend getaway, you’ll impress with this leveled-up accessory. What’s even better? The functional design is water resistant, durable, and just plain good looking.$175
“Hey everyone, come see how good I look.” -Ron Burgundy (and now you too).
I love, I mean love, seeing guys wear a lightweight blazer in a summer color as soon as the weather heats up. Paired with jeans and a white shirt or chinos and a gingham button down, you’ll turn heads in this versatile piece. Just don’t forget the pocket square.$399
Half workout shorts, half regular shorts, all feel-like-you’re-in-sweats-while-looking-refined shorts. This 2-for-1 style special can look pulled together outside of the gym when paired with minimal sneakers, a plain tee or Henley, and a denim jacket to top it off.$70
As they say: Cleanliness is next to… having ladies run their fingers through your luscious locks. That’s how the saying goes, right? No, just me? Besides smelling like a rugged mix of palmetto, peppermint, lavender, and green tea, your hair will have a notable shine without drying your scalp. $19$19
