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?
Strappy sandals have become as essential to warm weather circumstances as sunscreen. There’s a reason why they’ve been trending for years now, and this pair right here is the one we want to wear all summer long. The thin straps, low heel and color will fit perfectly with jeans, as well as summer dresses and skirts. The brand produces their sandals with smooth leather in none other than Italy, and are guaranteed to be comfortable, understated and elegant – just like the style on the Amalfi coast.
Though high-end beauty products make headlines nearly every week, we can never resist a good drugstore buy that guarantees results. After being on the hunt for the perfect eye cream for months now, we’re finally giving Olay’s brightening eye cream a try. The formula is enriched with vitamins and a light-reflecting complex, minimizing under-eye problems, reduce dark circles, and most importantly make you look as though you’ve been eating all your greens when in reality you had one too many drinks and a large pizza!
Finding the perfect beach read is no easy feat – it’s got to be good, not too action-packed so you forget about lunch, but also thrilling in order to finish it before you head home. We’ve learned to pack the right books the hard way – because if you’re nowhere near a good book store or Amazon Prime delivery service, you’re pretty much stuck! This piece by May-lan Tan is a collection of short stories that are easy to read, with a mix of emotions, quirky characters, and hypnotic and surreal interpretations.
If you follow any NYC style on Instagram, there’s a high chance you came across oversized blazers, well-cut trousers and belted trench coats tagged The Frankie Shop. We don’t live in NYC, and as much as we love shopping online from another country, returns can be a hassle. Luckily for us, that is no longer the case thanks to the brand’s debut on Net-A-Porter last week. Starting with just a few pieces, we’ve already got our eyes on that one double-breasted blazer we desperately want and need for pretty much any occasion.
What’s on your wish-list?
