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?
Consider this week’s Want, Need, Read, Wear column a curated gift guide by yours truly. I’m letting you in on what I’ll be gifting my loved ones this holiday season, starting with this pebbled leather belt in a soft brown tone. The leather and style remain classic, and can easily be worn during hot weather months, as well as colder days like right now. A closet staple for any man, I guarantee it’ll be a hit!
Cold weather means dry skin and even colder fingertips! Make sure to not only keep your body hydrated but also your skin. We recommend this body balm by Aussie favorite Aesop; filled with beta-carotene and spiced up with black pepper and patchouli, the spicy aroma will get you ready for the day and the supple feeling won’t leave your skin oily or sticky!
The snow may be right around the corner, but there’s no harm in projecting yourself into the future with a little day-dreaming here and there. A coffee table book, or 3 in this case are the ultimate gift to oneself or to a gracious host letting you into her home on a cold winter day. Share your dreams and next holiday inspiration with this set of books filled with photographs and pro tips on how to conquer some of Italy’s best kept secrets.
Lastly on our list, I couldn’t resist to get these for anyone that loves pilates or yoga but is dead bored of plain old gym socks. This slip-free pack of three come in various shades of black as well as tie-dye – perfect to accentuate your workout look! PS: we particularly like the high ankle style, ideal for those cold mornings when the low cut/invisible ones are a tad too cold.
What’s on your wish-list?
