HOW TO: STYLE SNEAKERS (WITH MORE THAN JUST SWEATS)

We’re not shy about our love for sneaks, by any means. But wearing ’em all day every day could lead to unintentional I-just-got-back-from-the-gym vibes (not that there’s anything wrong with comfy clothes). Take your sneaker-based outfits to the next level with these easy styling tips—no sweatpants involved.

HOW TO: CURATE YOUR OWN CAPSULE JEWELRY COLLECTION

We all have at least one of those pieces—the ring that gives you a weird tan line around your finger every summer (because you never take it off), the pair of earrings that you always add to an outfit when it needs extra oomph—we’re talking go-to jewelry that you can count on. We love the stuff that you can both sleep and adventure in, that you can wear with pretty much everything in your wardrobe and that you want to keep forever. If you’re of the same mind when it comes to accessorizing, here are a few tips for putting together what we like to think of as your own capsule jewelry collection.

YES WAY, GETAWAY: TIPS & TRICKS FROM OUR JET-SETTING FRIENDS

Once the weather starts warming up, it’s like there’s a little voice in our heads saying: “Get out there, explore.” That feeling makes us want to drag our carry-ons out of our closets, pack a couple of swimsuits, throw on a beachy hat and just go. Before booking our own trip, we caught up with some travel-savvy women who shared a few vacay tips (and their gorgeous snaps) after staying at the dreamy Hotel San Cristóbal in Todos Santos, Mexico.

HOW TO: SPEND A DAY IN BED (AND NOT FEEL LIKE A SLOTH)

Reading this, you might be thinking this headline is a trick. Do you need guidance for vegging out and enjoying a leisurely Sunday in bed? Don’t you just, you know, stay in bed? Not so, we say. There’s a way to do it and not feel like a giant sloth. Because while we’ve all been there, we have likely been a bit conflicted about it. Apologetically, we’ll say something like, “Oh, I was so lazy today,” or “I did absolutely nothing today.” But what if we were to tell you that you could stay in bed all day long without a smidge of laziness? Yes, not a smidge.

How to Care for Canvas Sneaks: A Few Expert Tips

Timeless as they may be, a pair of canvas sneakers presents a bit of a paradox: They’re forever in style but they sure are hard to wear for, well, ever. Canvas shows age and with the frequency we wear ours that can happen way sooner than we’d like. We chatted with our friend, Chris Cottle at Vans, who could be considered a bit of an expert seeing as he’s surrounded by canvas shoes all day long. He did a little sleuthing and shared a few personal care tips. Tip numero uno? You’re gonna want to bookmark this post.

How To: Style Denim for Spring & Summer

You don’t need us to tell you that denim is a 365 thing and maybe even a 24/7 thing because we have actually been known to fall asleep in it (though we probably don’t recommend it). But despite its perennial appeal, there are some things that can peg a pair of jeans to a specific season, and when it comes to summer, that’s where a lot of the fun lies. Contrasting panels, exaggerated silhouettes, exposed hardware…the pieces that have been catching our eyes incorporate a sense of whimsy and F-U-N because, well, summer. Allow us to explain how we’ve noticed these warm-weather blues being worn.

How to Care for Your Leather Sandals (And Keep Them in Brand-Spanking-New Shape)

You know what time it is, friends? It’s the most wonderful time of the year (aka spring). And with it comes new shoes (!). Sandals, specifically, are the unsung heroes of sunny days. Dresses get a lot of fanfare (they’re scene-stealers, indeed), but sandals—utilitarian, cool, outfit punctuators—really do earn their keep once the weather warms up. Think of it this way: They’re likely the things you reach for every single day. So right now is the perfect time to prep yours for all that inevitable wear. Our design team helped us compile a list of tips that will keep them in tip-top shape.

Noticed: Stripes on Stripes

If we, say, held a contest for “warm weather’s official pattern” and we were the betting type, our money would be on stripes. It’s a humble, basic graphic that doesn’t require too much finesse to get right and channels all the things you want to be doing once the sun starts shining regularly: hanging beachside (maybe even on a boat), strolling the Seine in Paris, drinking a soft drink out of the back of a pickup, [insert other iconic warm-weather activity here and likely the idea of wearing stripes will seem entirely apropos]. So the look that’s been catching our eyes this season isn’t the stripe itself—no, that would be too obvious—it’s the pairing of stripes, particularly horizontal with vertical varieties.
