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?
Tennis bracelets can be expensive, like really expensive but this doesn’t always have to be the case. As we’ve discovered, some brands have managed to create identical looking ones to real diamonds without the price tag. This one by Kenneth Jay Lane is made with cubic zirconias that are as bright as the real thing. And at just under £80, it’ll be hard to resist, and more wearable day to day!
It’s no secret that we’ve been obsessed with clean beauty and skincare since trend hit an all-time high. Ilia is one of our favorites when it comes to highlighters, so we couldn’t hide our excitement when the brand launched a line of skin tints. Available in over 12 shades, the serum includes SPF, hyaluronic acid, squalane and niacinamide giving your skin the perfect protection for the day.
If your looking for your next romance novel for the summer, then look no further. Writers & Lovers is the latest masterpiece by Lily King and a must read – the author follows a young woman as she recovers from grief, moves back home and meets a new man in her life. It’s thrilling, beautifully written and captivating!
Ready to stash away your leggings and college sweatshirts? Make space for summer trousers that are lightweight, pastel toned and flattering with these cargo-style trousers by Pixie Market. They’re high-waisted (just as we like them), slightly cropped and in the perfect shade of pink. Wear them as pictured below or with a silk tank top for an evening look!
