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?
One thing we always do when it comes to back to school rituals is clean out our closets and home. So what better time than get a hold of a new cushion cover and send your sunscreen and aftersun stained summer pillows to the dry cleaner? We’re loving last year’s burnt orange trend that has transitioned into this Fall’s color palette – shop this one by H&M’s new home line which will keep you warm and cozy with its velvet feel.
If this skirt shot doesn’t emulate the dancing emoji from your iPhone, then you must have been living under a rock! We’re loving the styling on this one – in particular the black sandals which are perfect for this warm September weather, and the ruffled details give great leverage when paired with a simple black bodysuit at night or a white blouse for daytime. Alternatively, you could wear it with a matching ribbed top like pictured below – but whatever you do, make sure to add it to your shopping cart ASAP!
Got no time to actually read a book? Then this Berlin-based app is for you – Blinkist was created with the goal to provide you with the thorough and catchy summaries of the top books currently available. If you’re too busy to actually read a book but still want to get the knowledge, download it and discover its newest features. We recommend to add this to your morning and evening commute when music and podcasts are not an option anymore and you’re hungry for more!
Drawstring bags have been dubbed this season’s It bag, and it’s hard not to understand why. They’re not bulky and hence easy to travel with, they often come with a short and long handle for a perfect hands-free experience, and the pouch-esque shape gives you plenty of room for all your daily needs. We love this velvet one for Fall/Winter and the emerald green is the ideal pop of color to elevate your work outfit! The price tag is pretty good too – shop it now!
