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?
If there’s anything you need more than a pair of flat sandals that fit every single one of your summer outfits, then it’s got to be this one by Ancient Greek Sandals. Not only are they the most comfortable pair we’ve ever owned, they’re £120, with a short heel for an added appeal and a sleek black look to match any occasion, whether day or night.
The name of this product alone makes us want to buy it – does anything sound dreamier than lathering on a vanilla-scented cocoa butter after a day in the sun? That’s what we thought – which is why we absolutely most definitely need this body butter to help us stay moisturized, hydrated all summer long. Made with just 7 (readable) ingredients, this combination is guaranteed to leave your skin feeling relieved and smooth.
There’s nothing quite as fulfilling as catching up with someone over a book they recently read – better yet, one they’re gushing about. Last week as our editor caught up with her hairdresser maven Bee, they exchanged the best books they read throughout quarantine, and The Vanishing Half made Bee’s top 3. Picture twin sisters as they grow up and navigate through their lives, its racial differences and more. A must read if you ask us!
Shall we dive into things that make our outfits sparkle at less than under £100? Let me introduce you to the new version of Alison Lou hoops in a gorgeous deep forrest green ideal to compliment any summer outfits – especially if they’re white or neutral toned. We’re know to pack these on any trips given the need, but they’re our latest obsession due to their easy to wear and bold color – get on board or miss out!
What’s on your wish-list?
