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?
Another week calls for a spanking new accessory we need to get our hands on. This time, we’re calling this pair of edge sunglasses by Urban Outfitter that comes in a totality of 5 different shades. If these look familiar to you, that’s because one of our all-time style icons Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, is often spotted wearing the original version by Céline. The only difference between these 2? One is priced at just under £300, whereas the other comes at a fraction of its original price for just under £20. Need we convince you any further?
The quest for the best highlighter is (almost) over! After trying a bunch of them, from rave reviews on Amazon to luxury makeup brands, we finally settled on this one by none other than Gucci Westman. An industry veteran and makeup artist, Westman’s line Westman Atelier promises to light up your skin and make it feel as if you just got a facial. The texture is a silky gel that helps match your skin tone while leaving it glowing in all the right places. Free of parabens, silicones and all the nasty stuff we don’t want our skin to absorb, we love how this highlighter leaves our face both hydrated and smooth.
A much awaited book on our reading list, Lisa Taddeo’s Three Woman was well worth the wait. The storyline depicts the lives of three women, their needs and wants and more importantly what they’re not getting. It’s like reading a journal between you and your girlfriends telling each other what’s going on in your private lives. Both enraging and powerful, you’ll have difficulty putting this one down!
With fall slowly approaching we start thinking about all the things we need for the new season. High up on our list are easy-to-wear transitional pieces like this ribbed turtleneck by The Range. We love the form-fitting look and brown shades, perfect to wear with white jeans as well as a pair of leather pants.
What’s on your wish-list?
