New Yorkers have some of the best summertime style around, and so far, they have proven that although their social lives have changed this season, their style has remained just as strong as ever. We’ve now spent months wearing leggings, sweatpants, and anything with an elastic waistband, but thanks to these stylish NYC girls, we are finally encouraged to get back into the groove of wearing anything but. 

Ahead, I have rounded up some of my favorite NYC fashion girls and pulled out a selection of seven outfits I’ve noticed more than one New Yorker wearing at home this summer season. From easy matching sets to white summer dresses to wear, yes, even inside, these women are setting the standard for summer style higher than ever, and to be honest, we can’t thank them enough.  

Matching sets are the best way to make it look like you really tried with

In the 1995 cult-classic film Now and Then, there’s a scene where the four main characters ride bikes and sing Tony Orlando’s “Knock Three Times” at the top of their lungs. The iconic moment plays on a loop pretty much every time I see a bike. Furthermore, it set the tone for what an achingly chic ride looks (and sounds) like. One thing I can’t help but notice, though, is the fact that none of the aforementioned actresses are wearing bike helmets. Not one! Sure, they’re pedaling down an empty road in the suburbs of Indiana, but what if a truck whizzes by? The Wormer brothers could come out of nowhere, armed with water balloons. Over three decades later, the lack of protective headgear still plagues my mind.

For this reason – in addition to general safety protocols – I always wear a helmet. And thankfully, there are tons … Read the rest

Your shoe choice more or less determines how comfortable you’ll remain throughout the day. Regardless of how cozy your clothing selection is, if your pair of flats or sandals pinch ever so slightly, your comfort level will swiftly start to decline. In an effort to avoid such discomfort, we often tap podiatrists to shed insight on those current footwear silhouettes that won’t cause as much pain.

Today, given that many are spending more time at home, we wanted to zero in on the best (and worst) shoes to wear around the house. We turned to Benjamin Tehrani, DPM, of Kings Point Foot & Ankle in Los Angeles and creator of Nerve Assist for expert tips on the common styles that are okay and those that could cause some harm to your overall foot health. In addition, given that many of us do spend a lot of time walking barefoot around … 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 re-creation 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

Bikinis hold a special place in my heart. Swimwear was the very first market I was assigned to edit when I became a fashion editor, and now, after years of discovering the latest trends, meeting designers, and working on photo shoots, I’ve become quite the bikini expert. From retro maillots and barely there bikinis to swim skirts and the return of the low rise, I’ve seen and tried them all. Thus, my Instagram has become a true testament to my ongoing love affair with bikinis. 

We are inundated with bikini styles, colors, patterns, and fabrics to choose from (not a terrible situation), and it can be challenging to filter through and find the silhouettes that work best for you. Even though I have bins overflowing with every single bikini style you can imagine, I tend to remain loyal to the same six styles that are flattering and, of Read the rest

Kamala Harris continues to break barriers in her career. On April 28, she stood behind Joe Biden as he addressed a joint session of Congress at the United States Capitol in Washington DC. Biden acknowledged the vice president and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi: “Madam Speaker, Madam Vice President. No president has ever said those words from this podium,” he said. “No president has ever said those words and it’s about time.” If that is not enough to make women and young girls all over the world feel confident, Harris’s bold stature and elegance in a cream Prabal Gurung pantsuit should help.

Harris chose to support the Singaporean-born Nepali American designer raised in Nepal and India at the most crucial time – when Gurung himself is using his platform to stand up against anti-Asian hate crimes in America and racism in the fashion industry. By working with Gurung on … Read the rest

It may be entirely un-British to laugh about anyone else’s style choices (we Brits are far too polite for that), but I will say that as a Brit living in Los Angeles for over 12 years, I’ve picked up on certain American sartorial tendencies that I’ve found rather distinct and funny. I recall being taken aback on my first brunch date in Santa Monica where everyone looked like they had just stepped out of the gym (minus the sweat, of course). This is a far cry from the UK, where you’d never meet friends for lunch in yoga pants or sports gear if you aren’t actually planning to do sports. (Full disclosure: 12 years later, I now look likeI go to the gym too.)

While we love expressing our adoration for classic French style here on Who What Wear, it’s the Brits who take more style risks, exude an edgier Read the rest

Surprise! Frankies Bikinis has teamed up with tennis player Naomi Osaka to collaborate on her first-ever swimwear collection. The athlete showcases her sense of style in a range of swimwear designed in collaboration with the brand’s founder and Creative Director Francesca Aiello.

“For this swimwear collection, I really wanted to mix sporty and feminine, just like my own style. Francesca and I designed strong silhouettes in bold colors and also included a lot of playful prints and sparkly fabrics to add some femininity. I think there’s a little something for everyone in this collection, and that makes me really excited,” Naomi exclusively told POPSUGAR.

The collection will be released in two drops. The first drop will release on May 10 and focuses on “fun, girly prints and new silhouettes.” The brand will showcase new prints called “sweet pea” floral, “libra stripe,” and “candyland.” It will also be showcasing Naomi’s signature … Read the rest

Now that almost a full year has passed since we began working from home, I can confidently say I have never ever in my entire life worn sweatpants as frequently as I have this past year. I used to have really high hopes for myself when this all started (that I would wake up and actually get dressed every day), but that rarely happens, and I have come to accept that. Instead, I slip into my favorite pair of sweatpants and call it a day. Am I sick of this sartorial routine? You bet I am, and with summer on the horizon, I am beyond ready to finally start shopping for something that couldn’t be more opposite of sweatsuits: swimsuits! 

I honestly can’t remember the last time I did a thorough swimsuit search, so selecting the products for this story made me feel all kinds of things. The 31 swimsuits … Read the rest

Only three months after landing her first modeling contract, Ella Emhoff has launched her first official knitwear collaboration with designer Batsheva Hay, and the collection alone might make grandma chic 2021’s newest trend. After teasing the design process in early March – which involved collaborating via text, email, and Zoom – Ella and Batsheva have channeled 2000s pastel style into three pieces ranging in price from $150 to $280.

“Having the bright colors I love mixed with her traditional silhouettes; it was kind of the perfect melding of styles,” Ella said in a press release. “There’s not a real plan, it’s just intuition. It was really nice to work with someone else who works like that because it can be seen as an unorganized aspect, but it’s not. It just happens so stress-free.” The pair only met up once in person for fittings, making the finished collection a true creative … Read the rest
