Protect your eyes in style with Sunski “Dipseas” sunglasses ($55, from Title Nine). The latest addition to the Sunski lineup, this chic tortoise shell style is perfect for a day at the beach.

Make your own shade by donning this Michael Stars hat ($54, from Alysa Rene) in a pastel hue that’s on-trend for spring. Style it with a simple sundress or use it to add a dash of cool to your weekend uniform of jeans and a T-shirt.

Step aside boots, it’s sandal season. Slip on a pair like these Free People “Belize” sandals ($68, from Alysa Rene) with crisscrossing straps and a toe loop for a boho look. The neutral color makes them a breeze to pair with all the pieces in your spring and summer wardrobe.

From kids’ sporting events to spring runs and trips, it’s important to keep sunscreen on hand. All Good Sport Sunscreen ($16, from Title Nine) in SPF 33 is hypo-allergenic, vegan, and free of parabens and GMOs, plus the certified organic sunscreen goes on clear and features a non-greasy formula.

With swimsuit season around the corner, many are kicking their fitness routines into high gear. If you’re hitting the gym (or diving into swim season early with a vacation), consider investing in the Eagle Creek Pack-it Sport Wet Dry Fitness Locker ($27, from Title Nine). The lightweight, water-resistant bag lets you separate clean clothes from wet or sweaty gear, and an antimicrobial treatment helps contain odor and prevent microbial growth.

Tiring of your basic black or brown loafer? It’s the ideal time to brighten up your shoe rack. We’re smitten with these navy Donald J. Pliner slip-ons ($185, from Geno’s Clothiers) with white lacing. Weekend cookouts are about to get a little cooler.
