Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one Who What Wear team member or friend of the brand will share the top 25 fashion and beauty finds on their current wish list.

Here we are: week three at home. I had assumed by now I’d be near-fluent in Portuguese and zen from daily meditations with Rapunzel-like hair that had grown down to my waist thanks to a vacation from heat styling. In reality, I gave in and watched Love Is Blind, my workdays seem longer than ever, and my hair is in yet another topknot—which, TBH, I think creates quite a nice silhouette in a Zoom conference.

All that being said, I’m actually super content here in the little bubble that is my apartment with my partner and our dog (and the fold-up Pilates reformer I impulsively ordered on Amazon in an ambitious attempt to stay fit using only the eight feet of space between our couch and dining table). Let it be said, we’re incredibly fortunate to be healthy and comfortable working from home with only each other’s conference calls to contend with.

In the spirit of wanting everyone out there to have a little joy while they do their civic duty and #stayhome, here’s a selection of cheery and affordable things that make particularly good gifts. So, if you’ve already donated (here’s a great place to do so), and if it’s within your means to interrupt someone’s cabin fever with a little surprise delivery, I highly recommend it: Treat your sibling. Let your work wife know you miss her. I’ll be over here rehearsing some TikTok choreography if you need me.

Natalie Cantell
Executive Director, Brand Studio

Natalie leads the style direction for the all content we create in partnership with our friends at various brands plus the legendary team of editors who work on those shoots and stories. She loves collaborating and storytelling, so it's a really fun role for her. It's also the first full-time job she's ever had⁠! She started out in her career as a very mediocre model who agreed to her first styling job to impress a photographer she had a crush on, which led her down a happy path of contributing to Vogue Australia and working as a stylist, fashion writer, and creative director for all sorts of brands and titles. She has a bachelor of communications, but most of her career opportunities came up thanks to some fleeting and accidental street style moments. She's been at Who What Wear for three and a half years and still loves to work as a freelance consultant with brands and designers to shoot their campaigns in NYC. She's originally from New Zealand, and Bondi Beach is her second home, but like just about every other 20-something, she fell in love with New York at some point. She lives in Williamsburg with her fiancé and their weird little dog, Ruby. If you ever need reccies for feel-good fashion, legit coffee spots, politics podcasts, or non-intimidating yoga studios, she's very much your girl.
