Weekend dressing can be tricky: You want to look good and stylish, but comfort is key. Steven Alan’s collection of rumpled shirting for men and women is perfect for brunch and a paper, and his selection of jeans is rivaled only by big department stores where the attention is far less personal. He also carries laid-back brands like APC, Rag & Bone, and Vanessa Bruno. Everything is washable and slouchy yet still spot-on, and there’s always a cool one-off like Italian Army sneakers (for boys) and Repetto flats (for girls) to keep you coming back.
