8 Always-Popular Items That'll Be Hard to Find Once Spring Arrives

Year after year, no matter what the season may be, I end up kicking myself for not ordering certain items sooner, when they were fully stocked in every color and size. It never fails—by the time April rolls around, certain must-have items are often wiped out. There are a handful of these items that don't change much from year to year, and I'm here to warn you. If you delay, you may be kicking yourself, too, if these chic, covetable items are on your wish list.

The eight always-popular items below were in demand last spring (and the spring before and even before then), and I'm 100% sure that'll be the case again this year. So I'm here to encourage you to shop early and am making it very easy to do so with shoppable links. Keep scrolling to be the early bird that gets the worm.

White tank tops will always be a summer staple, but the designer-logo spin on tank tops has been particularly popular for the past several seasons, and they become nearly impossible to get your hands on.

Birkenstock EVA Sandals

Birkenstock EVA sandals are great for many reasons: They're waterproof, they look expensive (but cost far less than leather Birkenstock Arizona sandals), and they're super comfortable and lightweight. No wonder they always sell out in every color—especially the black.

Fashion people love Agolde denim shorts, which is why they routinely sell out. Don't let it happen to you.

Toteme is next-level good year-round, and people are as obsessed with its beachwear in the spring and summer as they are with its outerwear in the fall and winter. If you order just one thing, make it a swimsuit—you'll wear it for years to come.

Oversize Button-Downs

Oversize button-downs are a warm-weather staple. They're one of the most versatile pieces you can own, and fashion people buy them in bulk for that reason.

Reformation It Dresses

Each season, there are those Reformation dresses that everyone becomes obsessed with. So if you start to see any that you have your eye on selling out within days of hitting the new-arrivals section, take my advice and place an order.

Gucci Slides

Some years, it's pool slides—other times, it's leather slides or platform slides. The common thread is that Gucci always has some sort of It slides that everyone wants.
