Top 5 Reader Must-Haves

Shop: Nordstrom

 

The North Face Ancha Hooded Waterproof Parka

 

This North Face cozy parka was a huge bestseller in this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and this brand is a veritable reader fave. This jacket offers insulation without the bulk and is fully waterproof, with sealed seams, and a removable adjustable hood. 

Users love the hand warmer pockets, among the other interior pockets for storing small essentials. While not a full-on winter jacket, this is ideal for the upcoming fall weather. Comes in XS-XXL.

Sorel Emelie Chelsea Boots

 

Tis’ the season for wet and cold weather. The Sorel Emelie waterproof bootie is a highly popular Chelsea style with readers and it has synthetic rubber made to handle a variety of terrain. But they’re not just rugged in durability, they also have cushy moulded footbeds, making them comfy enough to walk for long periods of time!  

These full-grain leather chelsea boots are available in numerous classic colors and in half sizes. If you want to scope out more Chelsea boots, find our top list here

prAna Kanab Pants

 

prAna is a TFG favorite and the perfect mix of fashion and function. These Kanab pants have plenty of stretch, feel comfy, and have a ton of pockets.

For the fall season, you can add thermal underwear leggings beneath to stay toasty and add ankle boots.

Tumi Voyageur Brooklyn Nylon Backpack

 

Tumi is a top seller with TFG readers and was a hit in this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! The Voyageur backpack is super lightweight and has numerous pockets, along with a bottom compartment for shoes. 

The durable nylon makes this easy to clean and with a top handle and shoulder straps make this bag worth the investment; it’s unbelievably versatile and has longevity, not to mention its super stylish looking!

Shop: Allbirds

 

Allbirds Merino Wool Runners

 

You read correctly, these Allbird sneakers are made of merino wool! A mirable fabric that is cozy and soft, doesn’t retain odors, and holds in warmth or sweat in during the summer. But that’s not all, this company cares about the environment and uses green materials to make everything from the cushy midsole to the wool upper. 

And many users say these are “ classy looking sneakers that look more like a shoe, but are very easy to walk in.” While this is not a shoe to wear when it’s raining, it would work well for dry days.

 

 

Honorable Mentions

 

These other terrific items didn’t quite make the top five but they deserve some spotlight as well!

T3 Luxe Brush Set

 

A brand that’s super popular with TFG readers and with me (I have the 1-inch T3 Lucea straightener), while the price range of this brush set may seem high, their hair tools are sturdy, packable, and really keep hair looking wonderful, whether you’re traveling or not! In fact, this set is actually a $100 value, so worth grabbing for yourself or a loved one for the holidays. 

I’m also buying the satin compact hair dryer to use everyday vs. for traveling.

T3 Lucea 1-inch Professional Straightening & Styling Flat Iron

 

As I said, I own the T3 1-inch straightening iron. As someone with flyaway, curly, and often frizzy tresses, this keeps them looking smooth no matter where I’m traveling. The grip is sound so it doesn’t slip out of my fingers, the plates are larger so it’s precise, and it’s also dual voltage, you just have to purchase an adapter if using it overseas. Another awesome gift idea!
