One reviewer explained that she’s been buying this particular suit for years: “I am very happy with my purchase. I've been buying these Tugless Tank swimsuits for years now. I like the full coverage and they really do stay put. No wedgies or pulling on the straps!”
2. A beachy tote to hold everything you need
Having a classic tote for the beach or vacation is extremely important—you want something that can carry all your items and will also weather being jostled around as you move from place to place. This cotton canvas tote is built to last, with a water-resistant base and an abundance of interior pockets so you can organize to your heart’s content.
This bag has more than 1,000 reviews and an average rating of 4.8 stars. Reviewers loved using this tote as a travel bag and taking it on long trips.
3. Classic swim trunks to complete your vacation wardrobe
It’s important to stock up on basics before the summer hits, and these swim trunks are a perfect basic staple to incorporate into your rotation. They’re also UPF 50 treated, so you have an extra layer of protection against the sun.
Reviewers bought these in multiple colors and many said that they enjoy how cool and comfortable the shorts are. Several people said they run large, so be sure to check the sizes before you purchase.
4. A familiar tote in new patterns
Looking for a tote bag but bored of neutrals? Check out this canvas tote, which comes in six unique prints like a teal palm leaf print and a bright floral. With a water-resistant base, this is a perfect tote for on-the-go activities. Reviewers loved using this tote for shopping as well as for daily activities and recommended the quality of the canvas material.
One reviewer said, “I’m using the bag not only as a tote for small shopping trips (Walgreens, Craft stores, etc.), but also as a purse for casual use. The pattern I purchased is very cute in plaid pastel shades, and is great when I’m out and about in athletic clothing or jeans. It is very sturdy and well made.”
5. A soft crew neck to wear everyday
Comfort is essential in these trying times, and there’s nothing more comforting than a crewneck sweatshirt you want to live in. This crewneck is extra plush inside for increased softness and coziness, and comes in nine colors—one for any color palette (I’m partial to the Soft Lake Blue pictured above). Reviewers enjoyed the ‘outstanding’ quality of this sweatshirt and how soft it is—some noted that it runs large, so be sure to check the size dimensions before purchasing.
6. Soft, stretchy leggings to wear everywhere
Those who are adapting to working from home will appreciate these comfortable knit leggings, available in six colors and made of soft jersey for maximum coziness. This item has a ton of reviews (nearly 2,000!), and most people love the texture and material of these leggings, noting that they don’t stretch out very easily and retain their shape.
7. A twill shirt for perfect transitional layering
I’m struggling to think of a man I know that doesn’t have something like this in his closet. This staple shirt style will weather countless holiday picnics, grad parties, family gatherings, and more. It can also be used as a layer piece, making it extremely versatile for the spring months ahead. Reviewers noted that the shirt fits true to size and most enjoyed the shirt’s quality.
8. Athletic shorts—with pockets!
These athletic shorts with pockets are a great length for activities from hiking to running, and are made with moisture-wicking fabric to keep your exercise as comfortable as possible. Reviewers enjoyed how roomy these shorts are and mentioned how secure the elastic waistband is.
One reviewer loved how much extra space these shorts provide: “Ordered two more. Finally two big pockets for my big phone, and the pockets when full do not make you like a swollen blueberry. Comfortable waistband, good length. Can wear them all day. Wash like a dream.”
9. A short-sleeve shirt for every and any occasion
The second the weather gets warm these shirts make a reappearance. I personally love the rainbow stripe version of this top, but there are more classic blue and pink striped options available. Reviewers dubbed this shirt perfect for summer and several mentioned that the shirt holds up well to machine washing.
10. Patterned swim trunks with a bit of personality
Did colorblocking end? Unclear, but what is clear is that these color block swim trunks would be a great addition to any summer wardrobe.

Sometimes you need a product that’s versatile enough to take you from activity to activity, and this skort is perfect for activities on the go. This skort comes in three colors and works for the office, running errands, and spending time outdoors.
Reviewers liked the length of this skirt as well as its comfy material. One reviewer said, “Comfortable, yet tidy. Will be wearing this quite a bit over the summer. Shorts don't get caught or twisted underneath like my other skorts. Got one in navy, other in khaki.”
