Breathable, lightweight fabrics are key to surviving the dog days of summer, and the best linen dresses provide the perfect wardrobe relief. Whether you’re planning to dine alfresco this summer, travel to tropical beach locales, or simply on the hunt for stylish options to wear to work—summery linen dresses are essential. Gucci offers a sweet midi-length floral embroidered caftan, while The Great makes a bohemian belted version—both are equally ideal for an upcoming getaway. If you’re staying put and searching for comfortable options to wear to the office during hot and humid summer days, linen shirt dresses are a must. They still provide a tailored silhouette but in a soft, airy fabric. We love this minimalist version from Max Mara’s Leisure line or this shirred-shouldered style by Vince. For dressier occasions on your summer calendar, Asceno’s vibrant canary yellow halter neck dress or Agua by Agua Bendita’s tiered linen

We may still be basking in the sweltering summer heat, but the fashion editor inside of me is already thinking forward to the exciting fall season ahead, specifically to the trends and outfit combinations I should be planning now that will carry me through the upcoming months in utmost style.

One of the easiest ways to transition into the new season is with a great pair of jeans—preferably a classic pair of blue denim. Seeing as summer is really the only time when our jeans go on hiatus, so you can bet that we’ll be ready to break out our favorite pairs as soon as the weather starts to dip below 70. If, like us, you could use some fresh inspiration to fuel your fall outfits, you’ve come to the right place. Ahead, take a look at the below 11 blue jean outfits that are fresh for the upcoming

It’s part of a rising trend of Y2K fashion and what has been called “nowstalgia” among Gen Z, who are reliving early 2000s fashion trends they were too young to experience or remember the first time around.

“I think there’s like this resurgence of what was so cool in the 2000s … now that it’s coming back, it’s like you want to infuse it with today’s pop culture,” said Lisa Sahakian, CEO and founder of Ian Charms.

It’s not just beaded necklaces coming back into style. Iconic fashion trends of the early 2000s like bucket hats, low-rise jeans, and babydoll T-shirts are all having a resurgence among younger consumers. This vintage renaissance has also led to an explosion in thrifting among Gen Z, and a rise in sites that sell thrifted clothing like Depop and Poshmark.

The frenzy over thrifted clothing is starting to manifest in brick-and mortar stores, and

The Cannes film festival is back after being canceled in 2020 for the first time since World War II broke out. Famous for its films, its beauty, and its glamorous red carpet, Cannes is always a destination for the best cinema and fashion the world has to offer. And this year, the red carpet did not disappoint.

What to wear after a year at home? Stars got creative with custom looks, vintage, and sneakers on the red carpet (well, only the festival’s Jury President, Spike Lee, could get away with the latter). Jodie Foster wore a cream embellished custom Givenchy gown by Matthew M. Williams, Bella Hadid looked stunning in Jean Paul Gaultier Couture from 2002, and Carla Bruni wowed the carpet in Celine by Hedi Slimane. Here are our favorites from the Cannes 2021 Film Festival’s red carpet.

IRVINGTON, N.Y. (AP) — This time, the weather gods were smiling on Kerby Jean-Raymond and his label, Pyer Moss. So too were the fashion gods.

Two days after torrential rains and lightning sent guests fleeing for cover and forced Jean-Raymond to postpone unveiling his hotly awaited first couture collection, the sun came out Saturday and the crowds came back. They were rewarded with a hugely imaginative, visually audacious show that blurred the lines between fashion and art as it paid tribute to the ingenuity of Black inventors often overlooked by history.

And so, there was the peanut butter dress — literally, a huge, soft sculpted jar of the stuff. There was a stunning hot roller cape — which was what it sounds like, hot rollers from head to toe. There was an ice cream cone with chaps for the cone. There was an air-conditioning unit, an old-fashioned mobile phone, a

When Billy Porter wore a Christian Siriano gown to the Oscars in 2019, it more than an epic fashion moment: It was a bold display of queer pride. The headline-making moment certainly got people talking. “You don’t have to understand or even agree with other people’s authenticity or truths, but we must all respect each other,” Porter told Vogue in 2019. “People are going to be really uncomfortable with my Black ass in a ball gown—but it’s not anybody’s business but mine.”

Two years later, and it’s clear that Porter was onto something. This year, we’ve seen all sorts of men’s skirts from Thom Browne (who has long perfected the kilt skirt for him and her), to Louis Vuitton, Chopova Lowena, and more. Men’s skirts are certainly not a new idea. Designers like Jean Paul Gaultier were showing men’s skirts back in the ’90s, and many traditional men’s skirts

The Pittsburgh Pirates rallied from an early 5-0 deficit to defeat the New York Mets by a score of 6-5 in the series finale at Citi Field.

The victory sends the Pittsburgh Pirates into the All-Star break with a record of 34-56, and that game could be seen as a spark for the club in the second half.

Scoring Breakdown

The Mets inflicted all of their damage in a brutal first inning for the road staff. Brandon Nimmo doubled and Francisco Lindor belted a homer off of Chase de Jong to make it 2-0 just two batters into the game. Later in the inning, with two runners on and only one out, Michael Conforto would send another de Jong fastball over the wall to make it 5-0 in the first inning.

That opening sequence of the game was probably enough for most Pirates fans to turn the channel and watch

The latest run of couture shows in Paris signaled a return to relative normal, as the balance between digital and in-person events tipped in favor of the latter, and more international guests returned to the city this week to soak up the atmosphere.

Balenciaga stole the show when the brand — led by creative director Demna Gvasalia — presented its first haute couture collection 53 years after the house’s founding designer, Cristóbal Balenciaga, closed his couture business in 1968.

The 40-year-old Georgian designer, who has been designing ready-to-wear clothing for Balenciaga for six years, unveiled an expansive collection of 63 looks. Rarely do jeans and T-shirts make an appearance on couture runways, but the show presented a distinctly modern take on high fashion, mixing casual garments with

Angela Simmons served body-ody-ody last night when she showed off her banging curves during The Matte Collection’s swimwear fashion show at Miami Swim Week and we’re absolutely swooning! For the show, the 33-year-old beauty rocked a teeny tiny vibrant blue bikini from the brand’s collection and applied pressure to the runway like we’ve never seen before. She paired the look with a matching blue robe, a sparkly diamond necklace, and silver strappy heels to match. She wore her long, jet-black hair straight down with a slight wave at the ends to give us that summer, beach vibe that we all know and love.

“Full figure Mama,” she captioned an IG video of her strutting her stuff down the runway. Angela’s friends and fans alike swarmed her IG comment section with endless fire and heart-eye emojis,

Such is Giorgio Armani’s eagerness for getting back to holding physical fashion shows that not even a nasty fall resulting in a fractured shoulder and 17 stitches 20 days ago could stop him from holding his first show in 16 months on Monday evening in Milan.

Addressing the rumours that he had recently been in hospital, the 86-year-old designer explained to waiting press after taking his bow at his spring/summer 2022 menswear show that he fell down the stairs while leaving the cinema but wanted to reassure everyone that he was fine and still raring to go.

It is no surprise that Armani willed himself better. The city is, he said, “the epicentre of my world”.

Like the rest of the fashion industry, due to the pandemic the veteran designer pivoted to showing his collections in a digital format as opposed to in front of the 200+ strong crowd he
