What Our Editors Were Obsessed With in October

Products you buy through our links may earn us a commission. Oh, and if something's out of stock, oops, it was there (and all prices were accurate) at time of publication.

We’ll admit it: One major perk of our job as editors is that we get to try out tons of products to let you know if they’re truly worth your hard-earned money. So in the nature of tossing gatekeeping to the curb, we’re sharing a few standout faves from the past month that we usually reserve for the group chat. Because they really are that good (and we’ll be super sad if they sell out and we can’t get them anymore). Without further ado…


A silk skirt we love to dress up or down...

I have loved this silk skirt ever since I got it. It's comfortable, looks flattering on, and is the perfect go-to option for evening drinks or a night out. I usually pair it with a simple top and black boots, which feels like a very effortless, timeless look. It comes in so many colors and the price seems too good to be true — huge win. –Alexandra Napoli ($59.90, Quince)

Bow earrings that are worth the investment...

ICYMI — we're in our bow era. These drop down earrings from Simone Rocha have become my new personality — and in girl math, I've already made up for the price tag since I literally never take them off. They're so dainty and chic, and they go with just about anything (even though I'm working on snagging this matching top to go with them). –Beck Diaz ($410, Shopbop)

The perfect T-shirt to wear with jeans...

I constantly have to remind myself that I don't need any more T-shirts, but when I saw this one from AG's collab with one of my favorites EmRata, I knew I wouldn't be able to resist. I got the "sunburst" color, which is really more red than it looks in the photos, and (no surprise) it's absolutely perfect. It's hard to find a tee that hits exactly at the waist of my jeans, but this one fits the bill. It's also made of the highest quality stretch cotton, which helps me justify the cost. If I know me, I'll be going back for the white, too. –Martha Upton ($98, Shopbop)

A hair serum you can use so many ways...

It’s been a while since I’ve found a hair product that I can’t get enough of, and I knew when I saw countless people raving about this product from Roz Hair that I needed to give it a try. Use it as prep before you blow dry, as a lightweight leave-in conditioner for air dry days, or as a touch up on your ends between washes. I’ve used it all three ways and can confirm it has made my hair frizz-free, glossy, and shiny each time. –Margo Ghertner ($52, Anthropologie)

Sheets for every season...

OK, I'm officially in the Cozy Earth cult. These are the softest sheets I've ever owned, and they only seem to get softer with each wash. The breathable bamboo was perfect over the summer months, but I still feel plenty warm now that the weather is cooling down. I actually look forward to making my bed with these. –Caroline Goldstein ($271.20+, Cozy Earth)

An electric toothbrush that reminded us why electric is better...

I'll be honest, I haven't used an electric toothbrush in a while, so when I saw this one was on sale for Amazon Prime Big Deal Days, I scooped it up. As a former manual toothbrush girly, I actually can tell such a big difference when using this one. I also love that it doesn’t take up a huge amount of my precious counter space. –Celia Skvaril ($80, Amazon)
