Balm

Lip & Cheek Oil


Rodin’s line of cruelty-free beauty products, which range from skincare elixirs to minimalist makeup, offers the ideal balance of dewiness and brightness. Their Luxury Lip & Cheek Oil, a blend of conditioning extracts and pigment, makes skin glowy without any slickness, subtly drawing attention to your cheekbones and providing the perfect “your lips but better” style. We particularly like the dark Billie on the Bike shade for summery lips, like you just bit into a ripe strawberry. Packaged in a tiny tube, each tint has its own illustration from Air Mail contributor Donald Robertson—you’ll bring this no-makeup makeup everywhere. ($35, net-a-porter.com)

Sleep On It

A New Nightgown


We know you prefer pajamas—especially piped ones—but a flamingo-print nightgown brings some much needed romance to the doldrums of January. The good people at Spanish brand La Costa del Algodón (and by “people” we mean designers Isabel Pedemonte and Chipi Tornos) specialize in airy dresses that can be worn poolside but are better suited for the bedroom. This cotton-muslin nightdress, appropriately named the Juliette, evokes happier, tropical days. ($182, matchesfashion.com)

Button Up

The Statement Parka


We don’t endorse wearing real animals, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love a jungle print, particularly the python and leopard patterns on this parka from Burberry. Chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci specializes in the art of the non-boring, and while this jacket gets the job done in all the conventional ways—it’s warm and waterproof—it does so in style. Some argue that leopard is a neutral. We don’t agree, but it does look effortlessly elegant with a black turtleneck and trousers. ($1,390; net-a-porter.com)

Pin It

Gucci Brooch


Each time we wear a favorite Blazé Milano jacket or A.P.C. button-up, we wish that we’d bought the sublime Gucci crystal pin that has been hanging out in our Net-a-Porter Wish List—it’s the only thing that could truly complete the outfit. And so, after months of hesitating, we’ve finally pulled the trigger. It’s bound to freshen up our favorite blouses while also adding a touch of insouciance to even the most ho-hum business blazer.

Carry

The Ethical Tote


Wild & Rare, helmed by mother-daughter team Anne Kreamer and Lucy Andersen, has elevated the tote, thanks to this sophisticated two-tone design. The orca print is pretty without being precious (as many totes, let alone ones emblazoned with animals, often are), and the bag’s particular shades of navy and white, suited to winter and summer, make for a versatile and, therefore, an especially practical accessory. But what we love most about this piece are its roots in the brand’s mission: Kreamer, moved to action by the increasingly high death rate of orcas, called upon her daughter’s design skills to create wearable goods that signal the crisis of species extinction. It’s not unusual for a company to donate a portion of its profits to charity, but it is unusual for a company to donate every dollar. Wild & Rare, living up to its name, does exactly that.
