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?
After one of our most loyal pair of faux-leather pants gave up on us last week after almost 5 years in the running, it was high time to seek out for a replacement! We went on the hunt and settled for these leggings by Zara – which unbeknownst to the fact that they’re indeed not made of real leather, have the touch and feel of soft calf leather. The fit is high-waisted and cropped with zips on the ankles should you wish to let the details of your embroidered sandals peak out. As our next contender in the faux category, we can’t wait to take them out for a whirl, and at £19.99 they’re a real gem!
I can’t believe the winter sale is still going on, and the fact that these hoop earrings are still in stock! At 50% off, they’re a winner in the mix and match hoops department. We love the pearl detail and the large hoop style, equally fitting for a girl’s night on the town, a quick date night at a romantic wine bar or when out with your in-laws! The style elevates any laidback look, and works just as well in winter as in summer time! Get yours before they actually sell out.
After moving into a new flat, there are few things we love more than decorating our new home with small but definitely not insignificant bits and pieces. A coffee-table book is one of our favorite things to shop for – with the amount of choice there is, it’s definitely difficult to settle on just one! This Dinner Diaries series by Daniel Cappello will be a great addition to our already growing collection, and perfect to flip through when you host an intimate dinner with your closest friends!
Anything in the color family of orange, whether burnt or living coral as seen in this year’s Pantone of the Year winner, is a guaranteed uplift to your winter wardrobe. We love the long sleeves on this number by & Other Stories, and the delicate almost hidden buttons leading to the thigh slit are the perfect blend between old-school Victorian style and the current decade. Wear yours with a pair of knee-high boots as pictured, or with a short heel pump for a more dressed up look.
