You've got to appreciate an affordable watch that looks expensive. This limited-edition Timex is exclusive to MR PORTER and features a monochromatic black dial with a date window and luminous markers around the outer flange. The solar-powered watches can last up to two months when fully charged—both sunlight and indoor fluorescent light do the trick. The matte brushed stainless steel case proves it's ready for adventure too.

Bold sweaters are having a moment. And this one captures the vibe without getting loud. A Kind of Guise often takes elements from different styles and fuses them together, and this cardigan showcases that ethos perfectly. It's handmade in Germany using a virgin wool-rich mix and styled to look like its part kimono, part shirt, with a classic check pattern throughout and an open, tie belt closure at the front.

We can't use just any hand cream. It's got to work—we need it to be ultra moisturizing and fast-absorbing. If it smells good too, well that's a bonus. And this one from Korean brand Nonfiction ticks all those boxes and comes in these convenient little tubes. Meaning you can have one at your desk, in your bathroom and maybe in your car too.

Is it a plant or is it a sculpture? Maybe it's a little bit of both. Ilex Studio's popular avocado vase now comes in a smoky amber color which gives it a slightly vintage, mid-century vibe. If you don't have much of a green thumb, don't worry—you basically add water and an avocado pit and nature takes care of the rest. In no time, you'll have a complex set of roots flourishing beneath the plant—ideal for sitting on a coffee table or desk.

Say hello to 2022's answer to the jean jacket. UNIQLO's denim work jacket is cut from soft stretch denim—fabric that's lighter than standard denim jackets, so it's easier and more comfortable to wear. The boxy cut has a sleek line at the shoulders, making for a modern silhouette. Of course, it'll only get softer with each wear and best of all, it rings in under 50 bucks.
