How to Shop This Season’s Biggest Trends Sustainably

How to Shop This Season’s Biggest Trends Sustainably

   Let Emma Watson be an example to us all: yes, it is possible to rep an entirely eco-friendly wardrobe without sacrificing one’s personal style or missing out on all the great trends. Still, it’s not exactly easy. Shopping responsibly means looking at brands that are doing good in some way and/or sourcing their materials sustainably, which, sadly, eliminates many a cool-girl favorite. Plus, given that you don’t share Watson’s paycheck, you’ll also need to adopt a buy-less-spend-more mentality. (What can we say, higher price points are the cost of doing business in an ethical way.) Still, a greener wardrobe is definitely worth...


Something Better: Playful Accessories to Liven Up Your Look

Something Better: Playful Accessories to Liven Up Your Look

   Sick to death of your worn-out winter wardrobe? In the mood for an impulse buy? You’ve come to the right place. At any point in time, even when we haven’t exactly “earned” it, there’s no real reason not to treat ourselves to a fun, frivolous accessory. You’d be shocked by how much of a mood (and outfit) boost a new pair of earrings, a fuzzy bucket hat or even a couple of blinged-out bobby pins can be. Especially when it’s dreary AF outside.

Garish, Retro Florals Are the Print of Choice for Spring 2018

Yet we should know by now that sometimes fashion can turn even the most unlikely, obscure references into something extraordinary. It seems that designers have been looking to the vintage-loving members of their own families given all the retro floral prints on the Spring 2018 runways.To paraphrase a certain famous fictional editor, florals for spring are hardly groundbreaking. The latest iteration feels fresh, however, even if there are clear 60s and 70s references. Compared to the subdued watercolor patterns, abstract designs and hypermodern flower...

Go Back To Basics With These 21 Best Blue Jeans

    Blue jeans are as American as apple pie or the Kardashians. But lately, designers seem focused on “upgrading” our jeans. From Balenciaga’s new super bleached pair to Stella McCartney’s recent obsession with acid wash everything, you’d think there was something wrong with our trusty Levi’s and basic bootcuts. While we’re all for embracing the latest and greatest trends, we find ourselves missing the types of jeans we sported back in the 90s when we were walking down our middle school halls like we were taking a turn on the catwalk. As adults, we long to give off that now...


Rihanna Wears a Robe as a Dress, Expect Everyone to Follow Suit

Rihanna Wears a Robe as a Dress, Expect Everyone to Follow Suit

    Valentine’s Day, the day when flowers, candy, lingerie sets and silky robes are given en masse. But if you were planning to sport that new robe only in the boudoir, you may want to reconsider. Rihanna recently turned heads (as she often does) out in London wearing a robe coat by Alexander McQueen as a dress. The men’s robe coat (sold out everywhere, natch) features a shawl lapel, a diamond quilted finish and a flocked pattern. Thanks to the pervasive pajama trend, robes have been on the radar for a while now, just usually layered over something else....
