It’s safe to say that, given the tumultuous year we’ve all had, finding joy in small moments have become a high priority on all of our lists. With every day morphing into another, homes turning into offices and hobbies put on hold, Grazia’s fashion editors have put together our list of what’s keeping us going to hopefully inspire you.

There are the best new pieces to buy, exhibitions to ogle online, books in which to lose yourself and Instagram accounts to spark some new ideas. Count this as your little black book to get you through the week and try something new.

Here's what Sophie Henderson, senior fashion market editor, is loving this week:

Planet and pocket-friendly fashion is no easy find. Aspiga combines both alongside a range of swoon-worthy clothes and accessories. For every pair of sandals sold from its Kenyan collection, Aspiga pledges to clear away one basket of plastic from Malindi beach in Kenya.

American Vintage, Sonoma t-shirt, £60

Thanks to lockdown I've developed a new love for American Vintage – fuss-free clothes that are lovely quality and a flattering fit. My latest obsession is the white T-shirt in super-soft cotton. The long sleeved Sonoma is my go-to for wide leg trousers and trainer combinations.

Lulu Lemon, Take Form mat, £108

My home workout just got an upgrade thanks to Lulu Lemon's latest launch. The Take Form yoga mat was created from extensive research informed by insights from yogis of all levels experience around alignment, spatial perception and focus, and the cues they use to navigate their practice. Creating one of the most comfortable and cushioned yoga mats I have experienced.

Samsung at Selfridges, Galaxy A52 5G, £399.00

A great camera and the ability to Whatsapp have always been the most important credentials for me when choosing a phone. My excitement, then, was piqued on hearing about Samsung's A52. It was created with the social media-loving Gen Z in mind. With impressive camera innovations it's come just in time to capture those moments when we can finally get together.
