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?
The sun might be shining, but that doesn’t mean we’re quite yet ready to step outside without some sort of coverup to keep us warm. This cold shoulder cream sweater by Mango is calling our name! We love the slightly oversized look and cutout detail – perfect to wear at night time just as good as during the day. Pair it with a linen coat or leather jacket with tasseled details and you’re ready to go!
If you’re looking to get that summer beach feeling without actually taking a trip, then this fragrance oil is right up your alley. Expect a mix of coconuts and sandy beach inspiration – all wrapped in a rollerball format, ideal to carry with you on the go without spillage risks. The oil is also alcohol-free, which means that should you be having lunch on the beach, there will be no staining and odd smells. Roll it all over your favorite spots, we recommend neck, elbows and right under your jawline.
Get inspired to groom your garden or invest in a new set of plants with this gorgeous collection of gardens in the Hamptons. The book captures the work and designs of a variety of decorators and designers, and will inspire you to get more green on your end. With over 260 pages boasting beautiful greenery as well as scenery, this book will be a great addition to any coffee table or as a gift to a housewarming of a close friend.
Ripped or distressed jeans aren’t really our cup of tea anymore. That was until we came across one of Zara’s notorious new arrivals and this image of the most cool girl style of jeans you could come across. Everything is right where it should be – a high waisted cut, perfectly torn material at the knees and a long length which makes it easy to wear anything from a sleek beige mule to sky high platform wedges. Although still on waiting list, we want this pair in our closets ASAP!
