Lift Your Summer Wardrobe With These Fresh Summer Tees And Totes For Under $35

By Ioana Dragnef

Urban List is turning 10 this year and we’re in the mood to celebrate. And what better way to celebrate than by dropping some sweet-looking merch just in time for your summer wardrobe refresh.

That’s right, it’s time to ditch the sweaty activewear and don some fly-as-hell Urban List fits, ‘cause we’ve just launched four epic merch collections that’ll fill your heart with all the feels. Whether you’re a soul-food seeker, a caffeine-enthusiast, a die-hard lover of your city, or a traveller, we’ve got a tee, tote, or a mask with your name on it—yep, you can even customise your own. Plus, nothing makes for a better mid-week pick-me-up or ultimate pressie than sending a uniquely familiar tee or wildly accurate tote. 

So, take the guesswork out of gifting or grab a little something-something for yourself with our editors’ merch-must-haves:

Penne For Your Thoughts Tote

How You Doin' Mask

Price: $25
Looks like the new kid on the block Omicron has us ask masking for it. But, we'll turn those frowns upside down with a permanent big o’l smiley face. Yep, it’s the mask that’ll spread the vibes no matter the situation. 100% cotton and complete with a chin dart, you won’t even know it’s there. Shop here.

The Bubble-O-Chill Tote

Slice Of The Good Life Tee

Who wants just one slice of the good life when you can have three? Grab the tee that’ll quench your hunger for something sweet and savoury with this bespoke drool-worthy artwork. You can choose your “top”ings too (see what we did there?) and select between 4 super soft shades. Shop here.

Later Tater Tote 

Price: $25
Made from 100% cotton, this lightweight tote is perfect for your ‘lightweight’ mates who love (but can’t handle) a marg or two.  Need something a little more filling? Opt for our deliciously good hand-drawn duck fat potatoes in our Eat. Drink. Repeat collection. Shop here.

Bondi Bubble Tee

Big City collection to find your hood or whip up your own. 

The AM Tote

Price: $25

It’s time to celebrate the three real reasons we get out of bed — glorious sunrises, refreshing iced lattes and wildly good sourdough. And to do so, you’ll need something to stuff all that freshly baked sourdough in. Say hello to the AM tote. Shop here.

The Bowlo Tote

Price: $25​Because summers are made for schooners, schintties and days on the green, we’ve crafted a tote to celebrate the laidback trifecta. Shop here.

By now, you might be wondering why we’ve launched merch and the answer is simple: because for over a decade we’ve spent our time seeking and sharing our version of the Good Life, filled with an ever-changing combo of good food, good sips and good trips. This time around we’re celebrating and sharing those good life combos IRL, turning them from recommendations into epic reminders for you to don on the daily.

And to make you feel even better about your purchase, each piece of this limited-release merch collection is designed by us, printed to order (and locally!) to minimise wastage, and made using 100% cotton and sourced by sustainable suppliers. 

So if you were looking for a thoughtful and creative gift for your friends and fam, without breaking the bank, we’ve got you. Shop our 80+ piece merch collection here.
