Editor’s Picks: My Summer Essentials

Editor’s Picks: My Summer Essentials

It’s fair to say that my style has changed dramatically since moving to Berlin. Where I used to like bodycon skirts and dresses I now prefer loose track pants. Where I used to gravitate towards high, architectural heels I now favor sneakers (my collection is out of control). This month has come full circle and my editor’s picks include Adidas track pants (I wear a men’s small), high-top Vans sneakers (which I’ve been wearing for years), and oversized trench coats.

It is summer however—despite what the weather might be telling us—so humidity is affecting my beauty routine. I recently discovered The Ordinary, a brand that isolates specific ingredients and sells them for market price (seriously nothing is over £10. Another favorite new beauty brand is 3ina, a Madrid-based global brand that has incredible formulas and colors. Their creme eyeshadow is like super glue on your lids, and it’s so metallic people will think you’ve packed on the glitter.

Though it’s not exactly hot enough for the beach, I’m still hopeful. Myra Swim makes some of my favorite pieces—they’re super soft and double-lined seamless. I recently got their Ford top and Mase bottoms which I’ll mix and match (and wear the top with my Adidas pants).

I can’t get enough of Grime music, specifically Stormzy (I know, I’m a bit late to the game). I’m also super into Giggs, Flowdan, and Nadia Rose. And thankfully, Rebecca Solnit has a new feminist book out, which I highly recommend picking up if you want an eye opener.
