“Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” Coco Chanel’s now-famous piece of style advice has transcended decades of style evolutions, serving many of us well on date nights, for prom, and even at the occasional job interview. Enter: TikTok LGBTQ+ Trailblazer and self-described icon Kenneth Pabon, whose personal style mantra is all about doing the most every single day. Known for his signature dating advice videos and his “How to Be Iconic” series with his mom, Patti, Kenneth is no stranger to bright colors, bold prints, and over-the-top accessories. Exhibit A: the four-inch heels, formal high-low dress, and glass of Merlot he regularly works on the treadmill, aka his at-home catwalk.

“Pick out the craziest piece of clothing that you want to wear, and then match everything else to that.”

“It doesn’t have to be Halloween to wear a nice costume,” Kenneth said … Read the rest

If I was asked to name a retailer with more organizational items in one place than Amazon, I don’t think I’d be able to do it. It’s truly a one-stop-shop for every useful item you could possibly need in life. And that’s probably why I was placing daily Amazon orders after I moved last year. Whether it’s your closet, kitchen, desk, or laundry that needs organizing, there’s something for every need. 

Given that it’s Prime Day and you’re probably shopping on Amazon anyway, what better time to add some of those useful organizational items you know you’ve been needing to your cart? Of the items rounded up below, I can personally attest to some of them, and others have great reviews, so you can shop with confidence. You’ll notice that some of the items I chose aren’t strictly organizational, but they’re very useful and definitely made my life easier, so … Read the rest

The vast world of beauty products can be overwhelming. Whether you seek advice from experts on Instagram, influencers on TikTok, or even our own editors, determining what products are actually worth your time—and investment—can be daunting. 

Fortunately, instead of cobbling together a spreadsheet with finds from the For You page on TikTok or filling up your cart through Instagram’s shopping feature, someone, or rather something, has done the heavy lifting for you. That’s right—Amazon has aggregated the most viral, top-selling products into a single handy Internet Famous landing page that is easy to filter by category and price, which, most importantly, makes it even easier to add things to your cart so you can experience these buzzworthy products for yourself while stocking up on Prime Day tomorrow.

With that in mind, we sifted through the four pages of viral products to unearth 33 of the most affordable (and efficacious) beauty … Read the rest

My summer is looking a bit different this year: I don’t have any international getaways planned, all of my group trips are on hiatus, and now my patio has become my source of capturing that vacation feeling. As I sit on my outdoor chairs and sip on a homemade (and poorly mixed) cocktail, in my mind it’s an Aperol Spritz and I’m aboard a yacht along the pastel shores of the Amalfi Coast. It’s a bit of a stretch, and a long way from anywhere in Italy, but what’s been helping me at least transport there mentally, is wearing a chic designer bikini.

As much as I love a good bargain, even I succumb to the beauty of a designer swimsuit. From the luxurious-looking fabrics to the one-of-a-kind details, it’s really hard to pass up a fancy bikini when the design is right. Right now, I’ve been loving brands like … Read the rest

Victoria’s Secret is shedding its angel wings for something stronger. On June 16, the lingerie brand announced that its next chapter will be led by influential individuals across various industries. Pro athlete Megan Rapinoe, actress Priyanka Chopra, photographer Amanda de Cadenet, skier Eileen Gu, and models Adut Akech, Paloma Elsesser, and Valentina Sampaio make up Victoria’s Secret’s new partnership platform: VS Collective.

“We are proud to announce an exciting new partnership platform, #TheVSCollective, designed to shape the future of Victoria’s Secret,” the brand wrote on Instagram Wednesday. “These extraordinary partners, with their unique backgrounds, interests and passions will collaborate with us to create revolutionary product collections, compelling and inspiring content, new internal associate programs and rally support for causes vital to women.”

Victoria’s Secret’s revamped direction comes after years of criticism over the brand’s lack of body diversity. Its controversial annual fashion show saw its last year in 2018, around … Read the rest

Swimsuit season is here, everyone, and there are so many stunning trends to know about that we honestly can’t stop talking about. From vibrant saturated shades and high-cut silhouettes to three-pieces swimsuits and the retro florals that have already taken over, there are so many cool swimwear trends to know about for summer 2021. If you’re ready to try them out, now is the time to add them to your cart. The best news? Y’all asked for under $100 pieces, so I hunted down some cheap swimsuits that tap into all of the biggest summer trends at an affordable price point.

While these swimsuits are very wallet-friendly, they also read as much more expensive than their price tags and will have you primed for a fashion-girl summer. With prices these great, I have a feeling these will be out of stock in no time, so would recommend adding them to … Read the rest

We know you’re searching for sunglasses shapes to add to your rotation year-round, so we won’t skimp on the trends you’ll want to get to know. We scoured the runways and checked the new arrivals from our favorite eyewear brands – Oliver Peoples, Linda Farrow, Le Specs, and Quay Australia, just to name a few – and uncovered the biggest looks of 2021. These styles may be even more important than your blue-light reading glasses because you can wear them outside and inside – inside, like, when you’re posing for an outfit selfie, of course.

This year, we’re not only seeing a repetition of certain shapes, but a recreation of them. Futuristic designs come in all forms – some have frames that swerve or make waves at the sides, while others feature incredibly cool cutouts in the actual lens itself. Meanwhile, heavy metal is a trend, and we’re seeing yellow … Read the rest

Before second-skin tops officially became a thing late last year, they were all I would see on my daily work commute into Manhattan. Preceding that, before Telfar became a global phenomenon, gracing Oprah’s Favorite Things List, they were the bag of choice for my Brooklyn fashion friends in the industry. If you notice a style or brand suddenly gaining favor within the city’s creative community, chances are it’ll be the next thing the rest of the globe will be watching.  Essentially, what I’m getting at is that New Yorkers are pretty darn good at trend prediction. It’s usually a long path for a thing to become a certified trend, but 99% of the time, where this trail begins is with the new or underground brands that build a devoted following. To get an idea of which names will be in the spotlight next year, I conducted an informal poll to

Over the past year, I’ve had to take serious stock of my shoe collection. With nowhere to go, I had to think about which pairs I would actually wear once the world eventually opened back up. It was during this time that I discovered a massive, gaping hole in my collection: sandals, specifically slingback sandals. I owned none despite having a ton of different options saved on my phone. 

I’m not a big sandal wearer, but I have a special place in my heart for slingbacks. Unlike traditional mules, these trusty styles come complete with a strap across the back of your foot to keep it in place and in the shoe throughout the day. Plus, there are so many different styles to choose from, including elegant strappy versions from brands such as Reike Nen and chunkier flat options from Birkenstock. This sandal trend honestly just checks all of my … Read the rest
