Well, guys…April’s officially come and gone. Maybe just a little too quickly for me? (But I’m sure you summer-lovers out there are radiating all the joy). Personally, I tend to get into a serious fashion rut once May rolls around. Not having all of my fall jackets and boots?! Blasphemy!
But one thing I know? I can count on our readers and the TME team to give some inspo for these weird transitional months with pieces that are far-from-boring. Shoutout to you all (seriously).
April’s Top Sellers In Fashion & Beauty: Pretty Dresses, Denim Staples, Summer Sandals + A Few Random Finds
I took a look at what our readers had their eyes on and purchased this past April from some of our articles and social posts. Our top 20 products, to be exact.
There’s a good mix of warm- and cold-weather pieces, and a few random finds for a good night’s sleep (hello, weighted sleep mask and silk pillowcase) from some of our favorite retailers like Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and Shopbop. This Stine Goya Sweater S has been loving? Might just be the colorful piece I actually buy. Needless to say, I’m inspired (and realizing I could be sleeping much better).
Now, this is modern innovation. (And our top seller for the month). When I first saw this sleep mask was a thing…I gasped. Blackout curtains aren’t enough! Plus, the added weight (just like a weighted blanket) can help you relax and ease anxiety. Don’t mind if I do.
How cute are these shorts?! Besides the pretty buttons going up the front, there’s something about the shape (maybe the way they flare out a bit) that just looks good. Check out that back zipper detail, too.
A classic brown sandal is always a good idea for the warm weather. They just go with everything. (This pair also comes in a pretty slate-blue shade that I’m eyeing). But what really sold me? The foam-cushioned footbed. Perfect for sightseeing vacations.
I’ve been LOVING these knotted sandals, slides, mules, etc recently. Somethin’ about them is just so dang chic. It seems like most people were into the creamy white color, but the sandstone and black are gorgeous, too.
I never thought I’d be the type of person to want a silk pillowcase. I truly thought it was just an aesthetic. Then I read up on the benefits of it and let me tell you…this girl needs it. It’s “anti-bedhead, anti-sleep-crease” for the “ultimate beauty sleep.” Yes and yes. You can tell by the knots in my hair every single morning that this is getting added-to-cart ASAP.
Anthropologie never fails when it comes to gorgeous dresses. This one is made with cotton, so it should be perfect for spring/summer weather (and it’s available in petite and plus-sizing,too). Seems like everyone gravitated towards this “pink” pattern above, but it comes in a bunch of other pretty patterns. Naturally, I’m eyeing up that black and white print.
You can never go wrong with a half-zip for day-to-day dressing, workouts and everything in-between. This one from Sweaty Betty is made with 91% organic cotton and comes in three other colors, but the pearl blue has the popular vote. (It has my vote, too).
I think I might be in love with this dress. The open back, the slight peek of skin showing in the front, the high-neck, the criss-cross straps across the back…I mean, c’mon. This one’s good, guys. Side note: shoutout to Shopbop for styling this pretty dress with vans. 10/10.
Give me alll the raw-hem jeans! If you’re on the shorter side, raw-hems make it easier to hack off the bottom (if need be). That aside, it also just adds some interest to plain jeans. Check out how Amy recently styled them!
What’s a better motivation to workout than cute workout clothes? Absolutely nothing! The azalea color (pictured above) is almost sold out, but it comes in other colors, too. Check out Free People for all the fun shades and neutral options.
You may have seen Scotti feature this in our random finds newsletter, mentioning the pretty penny this set costs. So what does it promise? A perpetually vitalized, luminous, youthful complexion. If you’re unsure about it, maybe start with the individual (and less expensive) packs.
At first glance I was confused about this dress, then (very) quickly realized it’s reversible! You can wear the low v or flip it around to the higher-neck side, which totally changes up the look. All the options for my fellow Capsule Wardrobe People! Definitely give the other colors a look, too. That green agave is callin’ my name.
This classic blazer is a little business chic, but with the cool collar reads casual enough for day to day. Dress up some jeans and a tee or be a little fancy with trousers and a pretty top. Options are endless with this piece. See how Laura styled this blazer up for a daytime look.
A summer staple: pretty white blouses. I love the high-neck and slight bubble-hem. It’ll sit at the perfect spot for high-waisted bottoms.
The second I saw Shana wearing this sweater, I decided to take the idea of adding color to my wardrobe more seriously. It goes without saying…I’m obsessed. And the sleeves! I love a little slouch. Adds to the comfort and gives a less polished, but still put-together look.
It was no surprise to me that a CUPSHE suit ended up in our top sellers. Their suits are inexpensive, but good. The neckline on this suit in particular is super flattering with the criss-cross detail and mesh cutouts. Reviewers say it runs a little small, so maybe size up!
I loved this cardigan when I first saw it on Linzi. (May I add that it looks much cuter on than in the product images?) It’s a completely unexpected cardigan with the details on the back. From the front it looks cute and simple, but the back has allll the interest. MOTHER strikes again!
18. La Ligne Sweater
You know we love our La Ligne sweaters here at TME. These 100% cotton sweaters are great as toppers over a top (or swimsuit) and jean shorts for the cold summer nights. (And of course, they transition nicely into the colder months). You can shop more La Ligne options at Nordstrom or get this one on La Ligne’s site.
How cute! This dress makes me want to make perfectly portioned sandwiches with the crust cut off for a picnic by the water. Is anyone envisioning with me? But really, this would be a great daytime dress and can even work for a special summertime occasion.
We’re pretty particular when it comes to which Levi styles we like. The ribcage styles are some of the team’s faves. And this slightly-vintage light wash is everything.
Oh hey, Pinners…
