26 Things Our Editors Are Loving for April

It's spring time (finally!) and we've found the perfect clothes and accessories to keep us smiling all season long. From the best anorak to a flirty white dress, here's what JS editors are splurging on this month.

Clara Sedlak, Executive Editor

“I’m always on the hunt for a great transitional jacket and love this hunter green anorak from Everlane. It’s lightweight and great for rainy days. I’ve also got my eye on this black midi shirtdress, which can take me from a day at work to an evening dinner or cocktail party. And this Chloe textured leather tote—WOW. It’s been on my list for a while, but I need to save a little more $$$.”

Gretchen Dorosz, Senior Photo Editor

“For spring I’m loving clean whites and pastels. I’ve been looking for a fresh pair of white sneakers and this Nike pair feels both classic and on-trend. I’m all about comfort in any season, but now that spring is finally here I’m going to update my loungewear and splurge on these cute cropped pants from The Great. Another obsession of mine at the moment: This jasmine body oil by Herbivore. I just took the 2 oz bottle with me on a trip to Japan and it was a life saver! I use it as a moisturizer, hair oil, and perfume.”

Tyler Schoeber, Production Specialist

“I know I’m give-or-take 50 years late to the Converse game, but I’m finally going to get these high tops, which I’m sure will be an outfit staple this summer. For my upcoming trip to Colombia, I’m seeking out more ethical and eco-friendly products like SurfDurt’s reef safe SPF 30 sunscreen, made with 11 pronounceable ingredients. Last but not least, I plan on getting these succulents, which are perfect for newbies (like me) who fear the full-time plant commitment.”

“I’m gearing up for a beach trip this spring, so I’ve got a long shopping list of warm-weather essentials. Right now I have my eye on this V-neck swimsuit from SummerSalt, which I want to pair with the new Canyon Dress from Outerknown—it’s a splurge, but it’s made sustainably with 100% organic cotton by a company that empowers female artisans in developing parts of the world. I’m also stocking up on SPF—I love this chemical-free, all-natural choice from Mad Hippie.”

“I’ve finally jumped on the spring cleaning bandwagon, so this month I’m picking up things to make my life a little more organized. I plan on installing these shelves in my bathroom for my ever-growing product collection. I’ve added so many things to my daily routine and I need a way to keep everything handy! I’m also going to pick up a robot vacuum for days when I’m just too lazy to do it myself, which is pretty much always. Once my apartment is fully Marie Kondo’d, I’m going to treat myself to this Aesop room spray that has notes of geranium, incense, and patchouli.”

Elizabeth Mullen, Associate Marketing Manager

“I’ve wanted to try the high waisted bikini trend for a while now and recently stumbled upon this one from L*space. It feels very French Riviera with sweet bows and blue gingham, and I can’t wait to wear it all summer long. I also love these Fresh tinted lip balms and usually have at least one in my bag. The punch color is perfect for spring.”

“I dread opening up my sweaters each fall, because I inevitably find that the moths have been at it. I’m being extra vigilant this year and have picked up some new airtight boxes to keep those suckers out. I’ve also just ordered this pair of wide leg cargo pants from Vince. They’re slouchy and effortless and will look great with flat sandals. I bought a large plant last month and have been searching for the right planter for it. I wanted something with clean lines and that didn’t sit too low to the ground to create some impact. This Amazon find will do the trick.”

Lindsey Olander, Senior Editor

“I can’t believe it’s already April—I’ve got some serious spring cleaning to do! This year, it’s my wardrobe that needs some updating love. My Warby Parkers have seen better days, so I’m considering trading my thick black frames for the Lucy in elderflower crystal, which make a different kind of statement. Also, because I got rid of all my sandals last year, I am in dire need (yes, need) of these strappy platinum espadrilles. I’m also looking to add something to my carry-on essentials—a Nintendo Switch—for passing the time during upcoming flights abroad.”
