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?
Here’s how to easily transition into fall without letting summer behind too swiftly – get your hands on a pair of earrings that remind you of sun and sand, like this shell drop earring in a canary yellow. At just under £100, they’re the only piece of jewellery we want to wear into September! Get yours in the link below and show us how you’ll be wearing it throughout the new season.
Being tanned not only highlights your best body parts, but it genuinely makes you both look and feel happier! At least that’s how we feel after a day lounging in the sun slathered in the right sunblock. Unfortunately as we approach September, we notice that a tan alas doesn’t last forever. Luckily for us, we came across a new skincare brand helping us transition smoothly – enter French Girl, and its shimmer oil. Not only is this something we desperately need as the weather is still very much hot – but this all-natural and earth friendly beauty product helps us keep that warm weather glow for as long as possible!
Part of our summer beach reads, Swallow This by Joanna Blythman is one of the bestsellers of the author’s books on food, what we eat and why. The journalist investigates the fascinating world of the food processing industry – most importantly ready to eat meals, the stuff we feed our children with and all the snacks we buy on the go. If you’re interested in getting to know more about this process, the factories involved and why we consume what we consume, here’s a book for you!
The perfect airport look doesn’t have to involve tracksuit bottoms and an oversized sweatshirt. Enter the effortless chic way of travelling without sacrificing on comfort. Still in fashion a year later, the jumpsuit or boilersuit (whichever you like to call it), is the easiest look to wear on the go. This way, you’ll never be too cold or too hot, and always look put together. Style yours with a cashmere scarf when travelling, or with a few brown or black accessories during the day.
