Any Gossip Girl fan appreciates the value of a good secret. I’m not condoning blackmail, but there is something deliciously satisfying about being in the know before everyone else. Try as I might, it was nearly impossible to get our June cover stars, Emily Alyn Lind, Jordan Alexander, and Zión Moreno, to divulge anything worthy of a Gossip Girl push notification, but they were willing to share a few insights about their characters, provide anecdotes about fun behind the scenes, and have a little fun with a quick game of two truths and a lie.

If you thought the Balenciaga Platform Crocs of 2017 were um, unexpected, brace yourself for the brands’ latest collaboration. The luxury fashion house recently debuted its spring 2022 collection featuring Balenciaga Crocs 2.0. This time, the popular clogs are in the form of heeled mules and chunky rain boots. And while the internet is unsurprisingly in an uproar over the collection, I have to admit, I’m intrigued. After all, those sky-high platform clogs sold out in pre-orders.

I haven’t worn Crocs since the fifth grade (and even then, I wore them, like, to the pool), so I have yet to jump on the resurgence, but the mules have certainly caught my attention. Sure, they’re ugly, but so were dad sneakers and Birkenstocks, until society deemed them cool again. Personally, I’m envisioning the green stiletto as a statement shoe for summer, paired with ripped jeans and a simple graphic tee. I … Read the rest

Shopbop is back with another legit sale. Introducing the “Hello Summer” Sale. To kick off the season, Shopbop and East Dane are offering an extra 25% off sale items with the code “HELLO” at checkout now through June 11. So basically, if you’ve been eyeing a special piece that’s been on sale, this might be the time to go for it.

There are elevated basics like tees and sleek jeans, sandals that are both chic and practical, and a smattering of gorgeous dresses. You’ll also uncover a few standout accessories that I really think will pique your interest.… Read the rest

Ah, Crocs. You know them well and probably made fun of your dad for wearing them at one point in time – that is, until those vented foam-resin clogs became trendy. Just like a TikTok video reposted to Instagram, this is not new information at all. Whispers of Crocs becoming either ironically or unironically cool have been swirling in the fashion community for years – designers like Christopher Kane and Balenciaga’s Demna Gvasalia were in on it as early as 2016 and 2017, respectively, when they each collaborated with the brand to create iterations of their own. But like the person seeing the aforementioned TikTok for the first time on Instagram, I was admittedly late to the game.

Like many of us, I was extremely online throughout the pandemic, and the lack of new Succession episodes had me tapping through Nicholas Braun’s IG Stories almost daily. The missives from Cousin … Read the rest

Do you feel that? The flowers are blooming, the sun is staying out longer, and celebrities are back at it with their bikini posts. That’s right—nature is healing, and the Earth is returning to its natural state. With all things summer on the brain, we can’t stop thinking about (and shopping for) all the stunning swimwear trends that are hitting the market right now, and based on the Instagram feeds on our favorite A-listers, neither can they.

Celebs from Hailey Bieber to Lizzo to Jennifer Lopez (who quite frankly never takes a day off) aren’t waiting another moment to break out their chicest swimwear looks, and in true Who What Wear fashion, we’re here to document every last bikini. As summer goes from a mere glimmer of hope to a reality, we’ll be updating this post with all the swim looks you need to know from the It crowd you … Read the rest

Recently, there’s been a lot of talk about dressing joyfully, and I’ve been very much on board with this sentiment. After over a year of pretty much being on lockdown and wearing joggers, it’s only natural that we’re gravitating towards bright pops of colors and fun patterns to remerge as social butterflies for dinners, brunches and the bar. But we shouldn’t overlook those basics that continue to make up the staple of our wardrobes—joy can be found under many guises. We know from our own intel at Who What Wear that the pieces that tend to sell the best are basics such as white tees, black dresses and vest tops, arguably the bread and butter of our summer wardrobes. 

I turned to five of my favorite people to follow on IG who are well known for their more pared-back wardrobes. Each one has their own distinct style, but the key … Read the rest

As ephemeral as trends can be, they’re typically easy to trace, especially in an era of excessive documentation. It’s the items that have been around forever that have far less transparent origin stories. Clogs – the practical wooden footwear that’s been in and out of fashion’s collective consciousness for as long as we can remember – are one such item.

No one can pinpoint an exact date of inception, likely because clogs, originally crafted from a single block of wood, have existed in many forms, gone by many names, and been found in many countries: Belgian sabot in Belgium; Traesko in Denmark; Sabot in France; Holzschuh in Germany; Klumpes in Lithuania; Klomp in the Netherlands; Tamancoo in Portugal; Asturian madreñas or Cantabrian albarcas in Spain; Träskor in Sweden; Zoggeli in Switzerland; Paduka in India; Bakiak in Indonesia; Geta or Okobo in Japan; Namakskin in Korea; Terompah in Malaysia; Bakya in … Read the rest

First of all, let me speak to the elephant in the room. At age 41, I am still young with healthy skin (thanks to a stringent routine of cleansing, toning, treating, moisturizing, and sunscreening since age 14), and quite honestly, I feel better in my skin than I ever have. But there’s no denying the collagen depletion and bone loss that comes with age. Yes, that’s right! Apparently, bone mass peaks around ages 25–30 years and declines gradually thereafter in both men and women. Yay! 

This is why I started having fillers at around age 37 (you can read my previous articles where I wax lyrical about liquid facials and lip fillers). Now that I’m entering my 40s, I wanted to try something that didn’t just fill the depleted areas but actually helped my own body generate its own collagen over time. Enter: thread lifts. I first heard about Read the rest

All LBGTQ+ couples are different, so when it comes to engagement rings and exchanging vows, there are no set rules about the bling that comes with the declaration of love. Some couples gift each other rings upon proposal, while others hand-pick their stones and bands together, ordering them from the same company or boutique, so there’s less of a surprise but lots of room for personalization. A lot of people have partners that don’t like to wear jewelry at all, and that’s cool, too. Just like with all of the other little bridal details, the options are endless.

I’ll never forget when my sister sent me a text message: “How can I figure out Megan’s ring size?” she asked me, after having already ordered her girlfriend a promise ring that ended up barely even fitting over the knuckle of her pinky. At least it wasn’t a diamond! Luckily, they have … Read the rest

Interior design has always been a passion of mine, but it wasn’t until this year—with a lot of time on my hands and a cross-country move in the works—that I became a full-fledged member of the Instagram home décor community. And let me tell you. It’s a wonderful place to be. The social media platform is literally full to the brim of A1 interior inspiration, whether it’s brilliant young artisans sharing snaps of one-of-a-kind pieces they recently produced or interior designers posting scans from decades-old issues of Architectural Digest. It’s truly an endless supply of décor ideas. With that said, when an idea or concept heavily circulates the app, that’s usually an indication that it’s something we’ll see a lot of in the future. With months of stalking home décor accounts under my belt, I definitely have noticed a shift in the types of pieces and styles the design community
