Summer is ALL about pretty dresses, and this Loveappella maxi dress was the top one of April. Perfect for a sunny destination, or exploring locally, you’ll always be prepared for a nice dinner out. Dress up with a pair of dress sandals, dangly earrings, and a convertible clutch.

Naot Sabrina Sandals

 

These adorable walking sandals are a TFG favorite. The Naot Sabrina offers a comfortable footbed like a Birkenstock but looks more like a regular sandal, which is awesome.

The shoe is lightweight, is shock-absorbing, and has arch support. It packs light and is also pretty cute for a “comfort” shoe brand. Perfect to create a classy, unique sense of style.

Wallaroo Victoria Sun Hat

 

The Wallaroo sun hat is THE most popular sun hat voted by the TFG readers! It’s got a soft, cotton lining and the woven straw is UPF 50+. And it comes in numerous shades—from black to beige or even fiery red!

If you’re always under the sun or want something cute and sturdy for the summertime, this hat is SO worth the money!

Shop Sizes XXXS-3X: J. Crew

 

J. Crew Classic Denim Jacket

 

The J Crew Classic is a light jean jacket that readers adore for spring and summer. It’s a classic wear-with-everything style that can be layered or worn with a cute tee. It comes pre-distressed with two chest pockets and a hip-welt pocket for easy storage. 

It’s available in regular sizes  XXXS-XXL and plus sizes 2X-3X. TFG readers recommend the J Crew for its “classic style and decent quality that lasts for years.”

Shop Sizes XXXS-3X: J. Crew

 

J Crew Margot Crewneck Sweater

 

Okay, so this piece “snuck” back into the must-have post, but TFG readers are obsessed with J. Crew! The Margo crewneck sweater comes in many gorgeous colors, so there is a color to suit everyone, and it’s soft as well as durable. It’s offered in inclusive sizing too (XXXS-3X)!

A merino wool sweater is a great seasonal piece that keeps you warm yet doesn’t retain sweat, by wicking away moisture from the skin. Perfect for layering if the weather suddenly changes.

Shop Sizes XXXS-3X: J.Crew

 

J. Crew Sophie Sweater Blazer

 

An excellent year-round pick, the J.Crew Sophie blazer hits all the marks for relaxed style with lovely tailoring. It’s a light cotton blend with fairly large pockets to hold a room key card or a lipstick, and it’s so versatile it can be dressed up or down. We love all the colors available and that it’s offered in sizes XXXS-3X

It’s the perfect item to wear on the plane, too, for a little warmth, yet it’s not so heavy when landing in warmer climates.

Dr. Scholl’s Nova Slip On Sneaker

 

Back to shoes (our favorite topic!), these adorable Dr. Scholl’s slip ons aren’t just summer ready, but also comfy! 

There’s an anatomically designed footbed and you can also remove the insole if you want to insert your own. Goes great with skirts, summer dresses, and shorts!

Aetrex Jillian Braided Leather Sandals

 

If you need ultimate support, these Aetrex sandals come with a specially designed orthotic system built. These are considered wonderful sandals for arch support, designed to stabilize and align your feet and there’s a memory foam footbed that has soft cushioning. The velcro closures allow you to customize the fit both at the ankle and across the toes. 

So cute!  You can also get these sandals as a wedge style, or without the ankle strap as a slip on.
