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?
It’s safe to say that winter has arrived! Now in order to keep warm without looking like you’re about to hit the slopes, we’re looking for cold weather essentials that look as good as they feel. First up this week, we definitely want this fleece cocoon coat by Madewell. At just under £150 and in a versatile colour like grey, it’s an absolute must for the season!
We finally found the one powder to wear over our makeup that will keep that oily t-zone at bay for as long as needed. After scouring the internet for the best blotting paper and non-cakey powder, we settled on this un powder by RMS beauty. It’s easy to apply, doesn’t need much product to cover up and does the job! Try it for yourself, and if you feel like adding a darker colour, try their next shade up.
When you hear that the one event planner of the city (that’s New York City) is releasing a book about party and the art of celebrating, you know you want to read it. We can’t wait to dive into this one, and get all the tricks about how to best execute any dinner parties and Thanksgiving dinners for the upcoming holiday season. Bonus: this book is filled with illustrations that will inspire you to start planning ASAP!
Feeling tired? Too lazy to think of a great outfit to put together? Reach for seasonal basics and simply add a touch of gold jewellery like this gorgeous pair by Marni to finish off your look. This is our ultimate styling trick when things don’t always look as rosy as they seem, and the weather and mood have gotten the better of us. What’s more, they’re the perfect accessory to wear the whole season long without overshadowing a party outfit!
