These 29 New Finds Check the Boxes—Chic, Practical, or Both


@champagnemani; Styling: Open Edit Organic Cotton Poplin Oversize Blouse ($49)

I’ve brought you many shopping lists recently, including the fresh items from various new-arrivals sections and top-notch pieces courtesy of retailers like Nordstrom. Well, I thought I’d keep that conversation going with another curation of great finds.

This time around, I wanted to zero in on items that specifically check some of the most important sartorial boxes. Basically, when I discover a new item, it instantly reaches that “stellar status” if it’s chic or practical (or both). For instance, let’s focus on this under-$100 blouse by Open Edit (featured above). It has an of-the-moment oversize fit and could become a staple because it can be styled in many different ways. This piece checks the chic and practical boxes given that it’s forward and highly versatile.

Keep scrolling to dive into this edit further, which focuses on more A+ clothing items, along with various accessories, comfortable shoes, and more.
