Shopping Editor Sarah Wasilak’s 12 Spring Must Haves

As a shopping editor, I'm well-versed in everything from viral products like the Alix Earle selfie light and coveted Dyson Airwrap to crucial travel essentials such as carry-on luggage and face SPF. So it's no surprise my seasonal must haves run the gamut. In general, my style is founded on function and ease, but with a fashion-girl twist. Therefore, you'll find that when I'm packing resistance bands, they're from a designer collaboration and splashed with eye-catching prints. And when I'm collecting fresh white tees, they're beyond your basic silhouette. This spring and summer, I'll be traveling a lot - with Charleston, Palm Springs, and Greece on the agenda - so you'll find that the majority of my wish list is devoted to versatile items that are light enough to take with me wherever I go. There are some luxurious upgrades I've made to my home, too - mostly so that my decor makes me feel like I'm still living in an oasis, even when I return from vacation. I've swapped my old bath towels for plush organic cotton and my heavyweight comforter for a bamboo viscose blanket that has allowed me to sleep so much more comfortably in the warm weather. Ahead, you can scroll through my seasonal wish list and find out how I'm using each of these products to better my lifestyle. Related: 4 Editors Put Quay's Viral Sunglasses to the Test

What to Pack For Palm Springs, According to Coachella Veteran Jasmine Tookes

In 'Pack With Me,' influencers and editors give us a rundown of their travel must-haves and a few travel hacks to go along with them. For this installment, Jasmine Tookes shared what essentials are in her suitcase for a trip to Palm Springs, CA. Victoria's Secret model and Joja activewear co-founder Jasmine Tookes is one of the many celebrity faces to frequent Coachella in Palm Springs, CA, so it's no surprise she has a grasp on festival fashion. But Tookes, 33, lives in LA, so Palm Springs is a repeat destination on her travel list. She visits the desert oasis for casual weekend getaways, hitting up brunch hot spots like the Parker and Farm in the desert heat. While festival season trends range from decorative bows to fringe and cowboy boots to wild nail art, Tookes tells PS she prefers to keep her Palm Springs style classic and simple. "Whenever I'm in Palm Springs it's all about relaxing," Tookes says. "Waking up and getting some sun by the pool is the perfect start to any Palm Springs morning. If I am there for the festival, I usually head there around 4 p.m. as the heat starts to go down. Listening to music during sunset is such a nice vibe when you are surrounded by all of your friends." This season, Tookes styled VS's Dream Angels Wicked Corset Teddy with RŌARI's Stella Skirt for a flirty take on festival fashion. She accessorized with gold jewelry and her Saint Laurent sunglasses - one of the first Palm Springs essentials she mentioned when listing off the must haves in her suitcase. She still regards a white satin dress with a thin belt and flats as her favorite festival outfit of all time. Of course, there are plenty more items she takes with her on a trip to Palm Springs, from a Sony camcorder for recording memories with friends to cult favorite beauty products like Rhode's Peptide Lip Treatment and face sunscreen. Ahead, find out what to pack for Palm Springs, CA, according to Tookes. Related: What to Pack For a Trip to LA, According to Charli and Dixie D'Amelio

How Rita Ora Approached Designing a 169-Piece Collection That Starts at $5

On the day Rita Ora reveals her Primark collection to the world, she's wearing the gray acid-wash denim set, consisting of a boxy moto jacket and matching miniskirt with an asymmetrical zipper down the front. She styles the co-ords with leather thigh-high boots, several chunky rings, and a fluffy shopper, one of the signature accessories in the 169-piece collection. It's clear she's familiar with them all as she singles out members of her design team at the NYC launch party who are also decked head to toe in Rita Ora x Primark, beckoning them to pose for the crowd. One such look is a tan three-piece pantsuit, my favorite that I've seen so far. But the rest of the lineup is easily accessible to me, displayed on racks for guests to sift through and even try on. The 32-year-old musician has spent two years dreaming up the versatile, season-less, affordable range that emits '90s grunge and her own brand of sex appeal. "It was a combination of the friendship that I created with the CEOs and spontaneously being at the same restaurant," Ora tells me after the intimate preview, when I ask how the collab came to be in the first place. As it turns out, her genuine love for the brand began with early shopping trips to her local Primark in Hammersmith, West London, when she considered herself an everyday fashion fan who didn't want to break the bank. "It was such a great opportunity to reconnect to my roots, respect the journey that I've been on, and understand the customers, because I was one of them," she says. Codesigned by Primark and Ora, alongside emerging London-based designer Jawara Alleyne - and styled by Rita's personal stylist, Pippa Atkinson - the wardrobe staples allow the singer's fans to re-create her famous aesthetic on any budget. It's no surprise that as soon as the first drop was manufactured, Ora began weaving items into her outfits, slowly building suspense and teasing her followers about what was to come. All the while, the accompanying campaign was being shot in Trellick Tower and around Golborne Road in West London, where Ora grew up. "Keeping it really real was all I cared about. That's the reason I joined with Primark in the first place, so it only made sense to go back to where it all began," she explains. Available on Sept. 19 in all 430-plus of Primark's stores, the international collaboration - starting at $5 for clothing and accessories, $28 for outerwear, and $20 for footwear - will be available to browse on primark.com, with the option to use a stock checker before heading out to shop. It also prioritizes circularity and sustainability, with two-thirds of the pieces crafted from recycled materials. Ahead, Ora joins POPSUGAR for an exclusive interview about launching the fashion line. Related: Rita Ora Turns Heads in a Thong Bodysuit and Naked Cape Gown
