It's May! That means warmer weather, shorter sleeves, and higher hems for everyone. Here are a few of our favourite shorts, tees, and sunnies of the season. There's too many great prints and colours to feature all our top picks, though, so be sure to check out the rest here.

John Elliot + Co. - Classic Crew Silk Blend $140, nonnative - Dweller Tank Top $95, Saturdays Surf NYC - Bogus T-Shirt $50

You can never go wrong with a simple white t-shirt, and this silk blend slub jersey one from John Elliott + Co. takes the classic tee to a whole new level of comfort. For those extra warm days we love the Dweller Tank Top from Japanese label nonnative. Made from a cotton/linen blend jersey, this tank is lightweight and airy with three colours to choose from. And nobody does graphic tees better than Saturdays Surf NYC, whose Bogus t-shirt exemplifies the chill surfer vibe that the New York label is known for.

Reigning Champ - Camo Hybrid Sweatshort $145, Save Khaki - Bermuda Short $125, Moncler W - Textured Knit Shorts $725

Go casual with these double-layered shorts from Vancouver brand Reigning Champ, who take their classic midweight twill terry shorts as a base and add a tonal camouflage print polyester overlay, or go classic with the Save Khaki bermuda shorts in a lightweight twill. If you're looking for something a little more unexpected, try these Moncler W cable knit shorts, which combine comfort with utility and style in the best possible way.

Sun Buddies - Type 02 Amber $198, Thom Browne - Satin Grey Sunglasses $605

No summer outfit is complete without a great pair of shades to top it off. The Type 02 from Swedish retailer Tres Bien's eyewear label Sun Buddies is a perfect round frame style that comes in several different colours, while the satin grey pair from Thom Browne is a classic silhouette in a great summer tone.
