For this week’s “Don’t DillyDally,” we’ve uncovered new launches from lots of Strategist favorites, including Outdoor Voice’s foray into kids’ clothing, an unlikely Dr. Martens collaboration, and a gem-adorned puzzle that doubles as décor.
Quince, our favorite retailer for washable silk and affordable linen sheets, is moving into outerwear. Its line of puffers are all made with wind- and water-resistant recycled-polyester shells and goose-down fill and come in a lightweight or heavyweight option. Prices start at $40 for its vests and go up to $150 for its warmest jacket.
In more outerwear news, Reformation and Canada Goose released a capsule collection of puffer vests, jackets, and headscarves yesterday. All products come in bold patterns, like this Art Deco–esque number, and are reversible so you have a solid color option.
Two classic Dr. Martens styles — the Oxford shoes and lace-up boots — are now adorned with Swarovski crystals in this unexpected collaboration. Both are styled with a safety pin, chain, and three crystals along the side. Sizes are already starting to sell out in the Oxford style, so act fast.
Peace Out skin care makes one of our favorite cleansing balms for acne-prone skin, so we were delighted by its new pimple patches. The Acne Day Dots are over 60 percent thinner than their originals, meaning they’re less visible and can be worn under makeup. In line with its other pimple patches, they’re formulated with salicylic acid, calming aloe vera, and vitamin A.
Last Friday, Aimé Leon Dore and Woolrich released their sixth collab that includes parkas, quilted jackets, fleece jackets, wool pants, tees, and hats in camouflage print and other neutral colors. Things have already sold out, so if you see something you like, don’t dillydally.
DTC fine-jewelry brand Mejuri partnered up with the puzzle brand Piecework on a 1,000-piece puzzle that depicts a mix of chains, gems, rings, and pearls on display. We think it would make a good gift, especially since it doubles as a time-passing activity and home décor.
Lizzo’s size-inclusive shapewear brand Yitty, which was reviewed by our friends over at the Cut, expanded its selections to include satin sleepwear. The robes, pajama sets, pillowcases, and bonnets come in black, lavender, and the “Deep Sea Watercolor” pattern pictured.
Parade, which frequently appears on the must-have lists of stylish people, recently released its collection with Coca-Cola of underwear, hoodies, slip dresses, and scarves. Designs range from the iconic red-and-white logo, a subtle nod to Cherry Coke, and even one for the Diet Coke fiend.
Rowing Blazers and Babar are back with another après-ski-chic drop. Similar to last year’s winter collection, the fleeces, sweaters, and hats are in a red, white, blue, and yellow color scheme. We especially like this bright-blue rugby shirt that depicts the well-dressed elephant gearing up to hit the slopes.
Debuting its kids’ collection, Outdoor Voices released tiny sizes of its CloudKnit sweats. They come in sizes ranging from 12–18 months to 5 years old and are made with the same breathable, lightweight material that’s made fans of many Strategist editors.
Last week, Veja also expanded its miniature-size offerings. It added these suede baby shoes to its lineup, which come in three shades of brown. Like its other products, the insole and lining are made with recycled materials and the rest is made with warm suede.
In time for the holidays, a selection of American Girl dolls and accessories are now available to purchase on Amazon. Some items are for preorder and set to ship on December 12, like the “Girl of the Year” doll, Corinne. They also have plenty of other dolls available, including ones from the Truly Me and WellieWishers collections.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
