It's Not Just For Bulletin Boards: 15 Ways To Rock a Little Cork This Spring

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Nothing says warm weather like some light-as-air cork accessories. And though there are always plenty of options for that casual stalwart of summer, the cork wedge, right now there are also a slew of other ways to work this bouyant wonder-bark into a more polished, 9-to-5 setting. For starters, Cole Haan’s slingback heel and J.Crew’s envelope bag are ladylike to the hilt. And it’s not just shoes and bags that are getting corked, either. We're loving a statement bib necklace by ABS, a fun sporty watch from Sprout, and even hats (yes, hats!). We've found 15 pieces that are sure to help you get your summer on, and best of all, they all match perfectly with the season's other favorite accessory: a glass of chilled champagne.—Julie Chen
