We asked Ali Catron, Stylist for Tillys, for her 10 can’t-live-without items of the season. Gotta say, we seriously agree.
“An update to a classic by adding a little lift, this retro, skate-inspired sneaker is easy to pair with anything & will quickly become a personal favorite.”
“The higher, the better. Exclusive to Tillys these jeans are not only super flattering, but are a closet staple—I’d even go as far as calling them the pant version of the little black dress.”
“The wrap dress is such a versatile piece that works for all body types, all occasions and events. Dress is up with a pair or booties, or dress it down with a pair of sneakers. It’s simple—yet gives you a lot to work with.”
“Taking the worn-in feel of boyfriend jeans, meet the boyfriend jean jacket! This is one of my favorite transitional pieces! During Summer it looks great over a little dress and once it cools down it gives you enough room to layer with a chunky sweater.”
“Another great styling piece, I love a good flannel tied around my waist to add a pop of color or worn open with a graphic t-shirt underneath.”
“Lace up is everything right now- as is the cold shoulder- these two find the perfect match with this lace back top.”

“The Chelsea boot has always been a favorite of mine. This bootie can be worn year round and is super comfortable. To add some sass I lie to pair them with a fun sock.”
“These are definitely not your mother’s jeans, not by a long shot. These are however, going to be your denim MVP. Worn with a graphic t-shirt tucked in or a crop sweater these have the vintage look with all the right feels.”
“Sweater season is right around the corner and this O’neill sweater is a great way to ease into it. Its chunky design will keep you cozy on a cool night.”
“This adjustable backpack has been by every day carry. The straps allow the backpack to be worn as both a purse and a backpack letting you to get creative as well as allowing you to have your hands free to take the perfect selfie!”
