The sun is finally out; it’s safe to say that summer has finally arrived in New York City. Besides unearthing sandals and floaty day dresses from the closet, it’s a good time to shop for a further wardrobe refresh. The latest crop of ready-to-wear and accessories (literally) speaks for itself. From handbags to home furnishings, there’s a sartorial way to inject wit into your seasonal wear. Consider this the stylish way to say "hello" to the new season.

Les Petits Joueurs Pink Handbag

Les Petits Joueurs Pink Handbag A Second Chance Resale

1.) It’s impossible not to love Les Petits Joueurs’ pink handbag. The leather bag features a top handle and crossbody strap, and is made in Italy. A Second Chance Resale, 1111 Lexington Avenue and 155 Prince Street.

Tracey Emin's Coatrack

MoMA coatrack 

2.) The contemporary artist Tracey Emin’s neon signs inspired this cheery coatrack. It’s the perfect, mood-boosting addition to an entryway. MoMA Design Store, 81 Spring Street.

Summer Tote at Century 21

Century 21 Tote

3.) Why should your summer carryall be a dull, repurposed tote? Pick up this happy canvas design from Century 21. The pink tote bag is roomy enough for lugging around picnic supplies, and comes with a bright removable pompom charm. Century 21, 22 Cortlandt Street.

Smythson's Passport Cover


4.) Make your summer travel extra stylish with Smythson’s chic passport cover. We adore the sunny-yellow shade and masterful leather craftsmanship. Smythson, 667 Madison Avenue.

Jeffersonian Eyeglass Case

Thomas Jefferson Eyeglass Case New-York Historical Society

5.) Leave it to Thomas Jefferson to make a seemingly dull eyeglass case a charming accessory. Besides agreeing wholeheartedly with his quote, we also are partial to the case’s soft velveteen exterior and scratch-resistant cotton lining. New-York Historical Society Store, 170 Central Park West.

Thank you tee from Fivestory

Fivestory thank you tee shirt

6.) Teaching little ones to say “Thank you” may be as easy as outfitting them in this adorable T-shirt from Fivestory and Rosie Assoulin. The tee is made from ultra-soft pima cotton, and a portion of the proceeds benefits children’s charity Baby2Baby. Fivestory, 18 East 69th Street.
