GQ Best Stuff Box Spring 2020: The Latest Box Is Here With All the Self-Care Goods

Here’s how the GQ Best Stuff Box works: Subscribe ($50 per box or $190 per year to get all four seasonal boxes), and every three months you get a haul of our favorite things, from grooming products and accessories to gadgets.

Earlier this year, we set out to build our Summer 2020 Best Stuff Box around, let’s face it, the season’s biggest concern: looking good at the beach.

While many vacationers may be in heaven with all these options, I struggle to find breezy, summer-friendly clothes that still fit my classic aesthetic.

I’m not alone. One of Who What Wear’s readers recently shared this same style struggle

9 Wardrobe Basics Everyone Forgets to Buy

It’s pretty safe to assume that we’d all rather buy an amazing, special fashion item than another boring basic. However, the fact of the matter is that truly the majority of what we wear are basics, and they rarely go out of style, so we keep them for ages. Sure, the latest Prada It shoes have a significantly stronger pull than, say, a pair of black pants, but how many times will you really wear the Prada shoes in comparison to the pants? Exactly. Curious as to which basics are essential and the most versatile, we consulted an expert on the matter: Raleigh, North Carolina–based personal stylist Alex Long.

Long’s company, Alex Long Studio, specializes in personal styling and shopping, closet editing, and even packing. Since her clients are real women who lead busy lives, she’s a trusted source when it comes to how women shop
