In the closet: Stellar style pieces for spring 2023

Share this Post:

The purge is upon us. Not the one that results in the loss of limbs and life, but rather the return of annual spring cleaning, the collective load-shedding opportunity to rid closets of outdated and unwanted clothing and accessories. Those free spaces won't stay unoccupied for long, however. Update your wardrobe — and your attitude — with these easy-breezy style picks for spring.

Orttu Lisbon pants
What would you wear to a boozy, dramatic brunch at the fictional White Lotus resort? Orttu's casual-but-smart woven Lisbon pants in mint and white stripes are a solid choice for all the rich-prick shenanigans you're bound to get up to. $189, https://www.Orttu.com/

Infamous Swim board shorts
Put a conch shell up to your ear in Infamous Swim's mid-length Iris trunks — featuring blue dots, lines, shapes, and stripes in a printed pattern inspired by the Mediterranean Sea — and you can almost hear Santorini's sirens' songs. $40, https://www.InfamousSwim.com/

Duke dress sneaker
A minimalist take on the classic crispy sneaker, Ace Marks' Italian leather Duke low-tops — in a light, bright colorway like champagne — are the perfect pairing for dressed-down vacay 'fits with zero danger of looking underdressed. $224, https://www.AceMarks.com/

OMHU: x Waykins watch
You'll make more than one statement sporting Waykins' sunny Recapture watch in audacious yellow (and featuring a vegan leather inlay), which, with the help of Danish beach-cleaning org OMHU:, repurposes pollutant sea plastic so compromised marine life can swim another day. $147, https://www.Trendhim.co.uk/

Lightning bolt blazer
Shazam yourself into serving an all-eyes-on-you look in Love Khaos' shimmery, satin-lined lightning bolt blazer, adorned with reversible gold-and-black sequins that change color when touched and complemented with texture-contrasting velvet lapels, elbow pads, and front-pocket detailing. $633, https://www.LoveKhaos.com/

Khari ruby sunglasses
Seeing the world through literal rose-colored lenses in the Italian-made, Mazzucchelli acetate Khari ruby oversized sunglasses from British-based Kimeze. They won't change the outcome but, they might just improve your outlook. $305, https://www.Kimeze.us/

Bario Neal shield band
Less is more when it comes to warm-weather accessorizing, and Bario Neal's handmade shield ring with blue enamel relies on centuries-old craftmaking to produce a graphic, masculine band that transitions from poolside cocktails to patio tapas without looking like you tried too hard. $570, https://www.Bario-Neal.com/

Scorpion brooch
If "I'm the problem, it's me" were a wearable, it'd be Orttu's striking scorpion brooch, handmade with gold and silver embroidery thread and silver bugle beads, and officially the least toxic thing about you. $150, https://www.Orttu.com/

Grounded People kicks
There's a waitlist for Grounded People's PETA-approved, vegan Jundiai lightweight high-tops, but registering is a no-brainer: the machine-washable, fair-wage kicks use second-life recycled cotton canvas and laces and come with a five-year warranty; each sale supports ethical causes. $229, https://www.GroundedPeople.com

Lambskin bomber jacket
Swap your go-to denim jacket for the supple Blue Barclay lambskin bomber by Jack Victor, ideal for traveling lighter on a getaway weekend, given its perfectly proportioned fit, half-jet side pockets, invisible internal pocket, and sophisticated suede composition. $1,298, https://www.JackVictor.com/
