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?
Comfortable and luxurious knitwear can, but doesn’t necessarily have to cost a good chunk of your pay check. A few high-street retailers such as H&M have over the years mastered the look and feel, without the splurge. In the brand’s latest instalment of Fall/Winter sweaters, we couldn’t help but add this lace-up chunky knit to our wish lists. Available in beige, black and burgundy, we’ll be wearing it with everything from denim mini skirts to open-slit silk midi skirts.
After a much fashion-filled month of shows, it’s safe to say that our face, and most importantly the skin around our eyes could use some much-needed TLC. This eye-cream by Paula’s Choice is affordable, efficient and filled with all the ingredients we need after looking at our screens for hours on end. Its hydrating and antioxidant effect is proven to be anti-ageing and its rich texture makes sure to get deep into your cells without overdoing it. Try it and see for yourself!
Anne Lamott is the best-selling author behind a few of our favorite books – and this fourth one is coming in just in time for Fall. Available from mid-October on, we’re ready to dive into yet another life-changing and learning book about what life hits you, how to deal with it, and a just general box of wisdom and hope when times are hard. People often say that hope keeps you going, and Almost Everything depicts how not to give up in this current political climate.
Last week we covered this Fall’s best-selling in between season jackets and coats, and trench coats are one of our go-tos. Living in London where the chance of precipitation is always at a minimum of 5%, owning one is a must. Not to mention this slightly oversized look with a belt cinched at the waist is a chic way to cover up when the days start cold and get warmer during the day. Shop this one and more of this season’s outerwear to guarantee looking stylish yet weather-proof.
What’s on your wish-list?
