Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one editor, staffer, or influencer shares their top 30 must-haves or current wish-list items.
Though I spend most of my day looking through products—read: shopping—for stories, it’s not everyday that I actually buy any. In reality, my personal shopping habits are pretty low-key. But sometimes, mostly around the beginning of a new season, a little devil appears on my shoulder that won’t let up until a dangerous buying spree ensues. And with fall’s arrival just over the horizon, I bet you can guess where that devil is located right now.
You see, even I, who resists the temptation to buy clothes, shoes, and accessories on a daily basis, can’t deny myself when every single retailer is marketing hundreds of new arrivals, all of which seem like just the ones I need. What I can do, though, thanks to years of training, is narrow down my wishlist to a somewhat reasonable number. Ahead, see which 30 items made the cut. And hey, while you’re at it, relieve me of my own shopping guilt by indulging a bit too.
