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?
We might still be deep into winter, but there’s no harm in dreaming up looks for warmer weather. We’ve got our eyes on this long-sleeve mini by Shona Joy – the purple tone and polka dot print is the perfect transition piece into spring. The style is a classic in the brand’s collection, and also currently on sale for just over £70. Throw on a light coat or leather jacket, and that’s all you need!
Thanks to combination skin and hormones, you can never be too sure about what’s going to pop up on our face. Although we’ve tried and very much needed a bunch of drying solutions over the years, we recently discovered that most of them are way too harsh on the skin and can have opposite effects. Luckily for us, the industry is more innovative than ever and we found the perfect non-drying lotion by Ren. It’s actually calming and includes only 0.5% of salicylic acid. Give it a try and let us know what you think, we’re sold!

Fan favorite Charles & Keith have overtaken our shoe closets with their diverse, stylish and affordable collections, and here’s the latest pair on our wish list. With a croc-embossed chocolate brown heel, this ankle boot in a soft beige nude with a half almond, half pointed too is your everyday look. Easy to wear from day to night, as well as from winter to spring (given you avoid snow puddles!), this is only one of the things we definitely need in our wardrobe right now! ps: they come in a classic black too!
What’s on your wish-list?
