Nothing exudes the start of a new season and quarter than a brand-new column – which brings us to the here and now, fellow readers! We’re excited to announce the first edition of Want, Need, Read, Wear – the weekly feature will encompass the top pick from our team for each category. WANT is a current must-have and the kind of product which when we decide to ‘sleep on it’ makes an appearance in our dreams and is one of the first things that cross our minds when we sip that first cup of coffee in the morning. NEED is as you may assume a pure necessity – whether it’s that *one* it bag or accessory we’re spotting everywhere or the latest Amazon buy we plan to reorder. READ isn’t limited to a book, (although we’ve got a handful of best-sellers we’re dying to share with you) it can be a recent article we’ve bookmarked or the latest newsletter we subscribed to and read on our way to work. Lastly, WEAR will introduce solely fashion purchases, including but not limited to that one pair of white trousers we must add to our summer collection or those just under $10 heart shaped sunglasses available on Amazon Prime, and happen to be a fraction of the original YSL pair (because you know we love a bargain!). Let’s jump right into it, shall we?
With temperatures rising and the thought of a beach holiday closer than expected, we’re stocking up on accessories that make our beach days stylish and effortless. Our go-to? The perfect headband that has the ability to not only dress up a simple kaftan or t-shirt and shorts, but helps tug away salt water hair, unwanted sweaty fly-aways. This turban style by Cult Gaia is on sale and your best bet for tanning in peace or lunch under the palm trees.
After months of spending time in the kitchen whipping up new recipes, banana breads and more, it’s time to slowly get back on track when it comes to our general health and wellbeing. One method we like to turn to is natural supplements that help detox our bodies from the inside without adding any nasties commonly found in other products. This debloat prebiotic by The Nue Co. is crafted with digestive enzyme-triggering ingredients that are anti-inflammatory and help relieve any bloatness and cramping you may be experiencing.
The perfect companion for summer reads by the beach, Trick Mirror is a series of short essays that are easy to read on the go without missing a beat when you take a break or need to put the book down. Not only does Jia Tolentino make you self-reflect, get off your high horse and slightly more intelligent, she writes in a young and intriguing voice making it hard not to finish it in one sitting.
No wire with the shaping of a wire? Is that even possible? At Negative Underwear, it sure is. The brand focuses on producing high quality underwear with extreme comfort. This silky bra is easy to wear during warm months due to stretch nylon, a smooth and buttery feel without itching at your skin or tugging into your shoulders. Give it a try and let us know what you think, we’re hooked!
