Most Coveted is a new shopping series sharing our editors’ curation of the must-know items they can’t stop thinking about. 

I've reached the point of winter where no amount of self-tanner and vitamin D supplements can shake my desperate need for some 80-degree weather. The cure can only come in the form of a plane ticket to Florida and a suitcase full of the latest arrivals begging to be worn on vacation. All of my favorite brands are starting to release new, shiny things for spring, and while I can't wear them in NYC yet, I'm stocking up now, and I suggest you do the same. Below, you'll find a lineup of new swimwear, sandals, beach bags, and beauty items that will be going through TSA with me. Vacation is all about comfort and relaxation, and the following items are just as laid-back as my mentality. Keep scrolling to shop the pieces I'm adding to my packing list.
