If you have to narrow down a few key items for your summer wardrobe, this is our official edit. Whether it’s a go-to piece of clothing you can throw on with ease on the hottest of days, a standout pair of sandals, or the earrings that will go with everything, here’s your list. The best part? They can all be found right now in Austin.

The caftan
This comfortably lightweight caftan was designed locally by Oh! Fox and can be found at our very own Byron and Blue. The Cotton Diamonds Caftan is handmade in Mexico (and currently on sale). It goes with everything — dress it up with platforms or wear it poolside with bare feet.

The chandelier earrings
The Sarta chandelier earrings from online shop Fail Jewelry are handmade in Austin. They are certain to catch the rays of summer sun and are the perfect accessory for the upcoming season. Though lightweight, the earrings make a powerful statement. Wear them with your favorite little white dress or tried-and-true denim shorts.

The sunnies
There’s a pair of sunglasses for everyone at Sunroom. Shop the latest collections from designers like Kate Young and Karen Walker. We’re obsessing over the pair of Zanzan sunglasses in jade and metallic tortoiseshell, the fierce K511 shades, and the Moon Disco Crazy Tort from Karen Walker.

The “where did you get that?” item
We have our eyes on an array of gorgeous new embroidered clothing items at JM Drygoods. Nothing says Texas summer quite like wearing a colorfully embroidered blouse on a deck while cooling off with your favorite margarita. Shop them while they last. 

The sandals
In case you didn’t think it was possible to be more in love with shoes from Maryam Nassir Zadeh, take a peek at the metallic palmas. Complete with a beautiful silhouette, the sparkly lavender/champagne-colored leather will easily transition to your new neutral. The question becomes, what wouldn’t you wear these with? Shop this pair and other new arrivals at Olive.

The ring
Effortlessly adding a bit of flair to your wardrobe each day just got easier with the latest pieces from Psyche Jewelry. Operating out of a trailer on Barton Springs Road, we’re currently captivated with the Matrix ring — a geometrical work of art that is made for summer travels and patio parties.
