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?
Still one of our ultimate must haves during cold weather season, a thin fabric turtleneck is still our go-to when getting dressed for any occasion. While we usually opt for a plain colored one to layer underneath anything and everything, it might be time to spice things up with a leopard print. We love the neutral colors of this one by H&M and look forward to wearing it come day and night. Pair it with some leather trousers or high waisted skirt and you’re good to go!
Hello January, cold and dry temperatures that leave our skin craving more hydration and recovery than ever. Though we’ve only ever tried matcha tea as a drink, putting it on our face as a mask doesn’t seem too far fetched. We settled on this one by Teami which also contains lemongrass, clay and other detoxifying ingredients. Expect to eliminate blemishes over time, reduce redness and give your skin a fresh feel – the active antioxidants also work in reducing sun damage whether you spent the holidays on the ski slopes or in Tulum!
On a recent exchange with my hairdresser about what books we’re currently reading, I was recommended The Latte Factor – as the title might give away, millions of people around the world spend a substantial amount of money purchasing coffee throughout their busy day. If you just removed that one spending a day, you’d be surprised at how much you could save. This book is brilliantly written and may teach you a thing or two – or perhaps just help you follow what you already know!
Without a doubt a staple in our shoe closet, a sturdy pair of black ankle boots is something to wear year round. You might swear by the one pair you wear on repeat, but if you’re looking for a change, this buckled detail pointy toe number is under £50 and will look just as good with some blue jeans as it will come spring with a pair of white trousers and flats.
What’s on your wish-list?
