Endlessly browsing online just to try and find a random item to buy can be quite dreadful, but we all get that urge to possess something new regularly. We get it, that’s why we regularly curate shopping guides for you. This time though, we’re taking a personal approach to it – essentially, this is the CULTED team’s very own wishlist. From tees to sunglasses, womenswear and menswear, we have rounded up a list of our current favourite items, items we’ve been eyeing up recently and would love to get our hands on – you will probably too. Drop us a DM or use #cultedfits on IG if you end up purchasing one (or several) of these items.
ARIES X LEE SCULPTURE RIDER DENIM JACKET, £255 / US$295
Not much thought goes into what I wear, but you’ll always find me wearing one item that I appreciate. Whether it be a pair of trainers, a jacket or tee, for me, a statement piece is always required. A jacket like this one allows me to throw on whatever, it will distract everyone from my usual white tee and black sweatpants.
PLACES + FACES LOGO TAB BUCKET HAT BLACK, £45 / US$62 (APPROX.)
I’ve got Prada-Nylon-Bucket-Hat-Fatigue thanks to every social media influencer. This one just hits all the right notes, effortless and timeless.
MARTINE ROSE STRAIGHT LEG JEANS IN BLUE DENIM WITH PRINT, £265 / US$367 (APPROX.)
I’ve been watching these jeans for a while – can’t go wrong with a pair of straight leg jeans in denim blue, especially if they’re Martine Rose. I just love what Martine does, it’s the way classic items are made unconventional through fine detailing for me. Nothing drastic, neither too subtle.
STÜSSY REN LEATHER VEST, £200 / US$200
Adding leather to any outfit just gives it an extra ~edge~. I don’t make the rules. Although not what i’d expect to find at Stüssy, this vest could be dressed up or down for any occasion. But please, don’t style it how it’s shown on the website.
ISSEY MIYAKE X UNITED NUDE BIND KNITTED SANDALS, £230 / US$305
Chunky shoes are here to stay and I ain’t complaining. The knitted element of these sandals keep the trend feeling fresh whilst the simple silhouette is versalite enough for any fit. Plus you can’t really go wrong with Issey Miyake can you.
CARHARTT AMY SUNGLASSES, £135 / US$160
You probably already own loads of pairs of sunglasses, but what’s one more? The lighter adaptation of the classic tortoise shell mixed with the bold frame shape makes me want to wear these even in the rain, which lets be honest, is likely going to be most of the time.
GANNI LINEN CANVAS JACKET, £245 / US$300
I’m not usually one to wear patterns and bright colours (call me boring), so this leopard print feels like the perfect way to add a bit of print to level up an outfit. Bonus points if you can pull off pattern clashing, but I’m not ready for that move just yet.
LOEWE PAULA’S DIVE IN MASK ACETATE SUNGLASSES, £280 / US$360
I’m so fussy when it comes to eyewear, so much so that I usually just stick to the one pair that I like – but these bold LOEWE sunnies caught my eye straight away. I’m loving neutral colours lately so these would be a great addition to my current wardrobe. Take my money.
GOLF LE FLEUR X LACOSTE POLO SWEATSHIRT, £132 / US$182 (APPROX.)
Looks like we aren’t going to get such a sunny summer after all, so what better than a Golf Wang x Lacoste collab to keep me warm in Britain.
HELMUT LANG HELMUTLAND KNITTED SWEATER, £112 / US$152
I’ve had my eye on this sweater since it dropped last year, and now that it’s on sale I’m seriously considering buying it. I’ve wanted to incorporate some Helmut Lang into my wardrobe for a long time and this would be such a sick first addition.
SLOWDOWN STUDIO SUZUKI THROW, £245 / US$289
While this is sold as a “throw”, I’d happily chuck this on my floor as a makeshift rug or even a wall hanging art piece.
ADIDAS X HUMAN MADE CAMPUS, £59 / US$69
Nigo’s favorite sneaker silhouette has never looked so good. Human Made’s love heart motif is so strong as well. Sign me up.
KAPITAL CAMP-COLLAR PRINTED CREPE SHIRT, £385 / US$490
Yes, it’s a £385 summer shirt with a skeleton on it. Yes, I’ll look somewhere between Hawaiian dad and halloween costume. Do I still want this shirt more than anything? Absolutely.
HUMAN MADE JUNK FOOD VACATION SHIRT, £259 / US$305
Can you tell I’m into camp collar shirts this year? Picture me, 6-inch inseam shorts with this cheeky number on top – what a sight to behold.
STÜSSY MASKED LONGSLEEVE TEE, £50 / US$69 (APPROX.)
Stüssy is always a go-to. And this long-sleeve tee slaps. Sign me up to anything graphic-prints. It’s effortless yet still pulls an outfit together.
ACNE STUDIOS BLACK LOGO CROSSBODY BAG, £140 / US$180
If we’re being honest, I’m always struggling to find a solid bag to keep all my stuff in. This Acne Studios bag is what I’ve been needing for the past 4 months.
HAN KJØBENHAVN TORTOISESHELL-EFFECT SQUARE-FRAME SUNGLASSES, £141 / US$195 (APPROX.)
At the end of every summer, all my sunglasses are gone – either broken or lost. And when summer comes back around I’m always struggling at the last minute to find a good pair. I seriously need to purchase these ASAP.
