Now that spring is in full-bloom and the dust has just started settling on those winter wardrobe storage boxes, it’s time to gradually start gearing up for the season’s more fiery successor: summer. While tedious layering and heavy outwear are futile at this point, spring has yet to fully close its doors. To get all areas covered, we’ve curated a varied assortment of almost summer goods – from graphic tees to lightweight pullovers – along with a few quirky trinkets (sobbing Drizzy pin, anyone?) thrown in for good measure.
