A lot has changed in the resale world as of late. Long gone are the days when Goodwill was the primary option for finding pre-loved treasures at hefty discounts. In its place, there are a bevy of resale clothing sites and marketplaces that boast millions of items to shop at any given moment.

Shopping pre-owned can be intimidating. With a sea of inventory and new shops entering the market at rapid speed (from traditional e-commerce to Instagram boutiques), it’s totally understandable why some may be hesitant to shop secondhand designer items. But throughout my countless thrifting sprees (aka my method of coping with being stuck inside), I’ve discovered that resale marketplaces aren’t particularly difficult to navigate – you just need the right guide. And I’m more than willing to share my tricks of the consignment trade.

Up until the start of the pandemic, I’d always been apprehensive about authenticity when … Read the rest

Aritzia – land of the fashionable and home of the best dressed. The much-loved retailer has been doted upon for years by avid shoppers with hype surrounding the chic coats, trendy shoes, and five-star brands that make up the sophisticated boutique. I first heard about the retailer when I moved to New York, and thus lived amongst the chicest of the chic. Aritzia advocates harped on the wonders of the well-made clothing and expressed their gratitude for the cosmopolitan colors and designs, and not to mention, the vast sale section. As I took note of what my fellow fashion-lovers were preaching to me, one product in particular was given the highest praise above all others – the Super Puff. This plush down jacket captured my interest, and before I knew it, my credit card information, too.

Hey, don’t roll your eyes just yet—underwear goes through trend cycles just like the rest of the ready-to-wear world, and we have a lingerie expert here to prove it. I don’t know about you, but lingerie fascinates me, as it’s an article of clothing basically everyone wears but never really talks about. It’s not necessarily taboo, but since it’s rarely seen, it goes undiscussed. If you’re someone who takes great pride and joy in your negligee drawer, this is quite disappointing.

Clearly, we’re about to talk in great detail about summer lingerie trends—summer underwear trends to be specific. We reached out to an expert on the matter to give us the 411 on which underwear styles are on the rise, and more importantly, which are quickly dying. Read on as Sandra Rose, VP of merchandising and brand at Journelle (one of the best lingerie destinations, if … Read the rest

Intrigued by tarot? “Tarot is an extremely helpful introspective tool for those who are open to exploring themselves and the energies that they’re working with,” says Canadian clarity coach Chris Corsini. We spoke to Corsini to understand how can tarot cards can help us take on 2021 with purpose and intention. (For an astrologer’s take on the year ahead, read this.)

What are the benefits of tarot?

Tarot assists with “shadow work,” essentially, examining the parts of ourselves we don’t like or were taught not to like because of societal, religious or cultural norms. “Once you start exploring tarot,” says Corsini, “you can begin to question those things. You start asking yourself: do I believe this? Is this something I still stand by?”

Note: Tarot is not fortune telling, nor is it astrology. Rather, it’s more of a confirmation of what you are already feeling, which can help people … Read the rest

I remember when Kim Kardashian‘s Skims launched a collection of seamless face masks. I thought they looked kind of like seamless shapewear; very much in line with the brand, but I wasn’t sure if I’d want to wear it on my face. My style of face masks is bold and bright. I like them sparkly and themed for the holidays or luxe when I want to treat myself. As a person who loves mixing bold prints and patterns, I often throw caution to the wind when it comes to matching my masks. However, writing roundups of the great deals at Banana Republic and its variety of masks, I kept coming back to the brand’s True Hues Masks. I loved the display of the shades and the variety, even the name – “True Hues” versus the noninclusive “nude” wording; rarely do I find the color nude being applicable to … Read the rest

Calling all denim and shoe enthusiasts: Your summer-style tips have arrived. Jeans and shoes are a few of the most-loved, and most-worn, items in many closets, but which ones pair well together comes down to a bit of trial and error. With the plethora of styles out there, there are lots of possible combinations, but not all of them work.

Curious to find out what Who What Wear’s editors have learned, I asked them to weigh in on which shoes they would never wear with jeans. It turns out they all have great perspectives on the subject. Most of the advice comes down to which silhouettes and lengths don’t work with certain shoe styles. Ahead, they break down the specific pairings to avoid. Read on to find out which shoes you shouldn’t wear with jeans and then shop our edit of the best combos to wear for the season … Read the rest

In a new photo dump on her eponymous website, Beyoncé has shared never-before-seen images of her three kids, Blue Ivy Carter, who turns 9 years old on January 7, and twins, Rumi and Sir Carter, 3.

Titled “B at 38,” the photos look back over Bey’s 38th year, which included: a romantic dinner on the beach for two (not pictured: Jay Z), playing in the sand with her kids and a birthday cake covered in icing bees.

The photos follow a video compilation released on New Year’s Eve, which you can view here, that included 2020 highlights we already knew about, like her multi-year Peloton partnership and releasing Black is King on Disney+.

“Cheers to a New Year Beehive!! 2020 divided us and united us. Most could not see loved ones and we felt too many loses, but we were united by our humanity,” Knowles-Carter captioned the video. “This year … Read the rest

For fashion lovers, the start of winter is marked not by the first snowfall or below-freezing temperatures, but by the slow accumulation of new sweaters. From timeless oversized knits to trending items like sweater-vests, there’s always a new style, color, or silhouette to invest in each year. 

As a self-proclaimed sweater connoisseur, I have my eye on the below best sweaters for women 2021: cardigans, sweater-vests, polo sweaters, half-zips, going-out sweaters, and classic knits. While my closet is already brimming with too many cozy sweaters to count, I plan to make space for at least two to three of these new looks this season.

For centuries, we’ve accepted the belief that creativity is connected with the burden of an unsound mind. Countless members of the fashion world have burned out, fallen from grace and, in the most tragic of cases, taken their own lives because the way the industry has often functioned – quickly, unscrupulously – has left little room for some of the most admirable talents to find peace during the creative process, let alone while they’re enduring the taxing aspects of entrepreneurship and, now, a global pandemic.

But thanks to the dismantling of discomfort around discussing mental health issues, it’s becoming less taboo to talk about the troubles experienced in one’s personal and professional lives. To inspire your own pursuit of calm and clarity, five creatives share how they’re managing, coping with and nurturing their mental health.

TikTok user and UCLA student Shay Rose created a pink social-distancing dress made of tulle that is, in fact, six-feet wide on each side. The 12-foot project took two months, and was done from home while quarantining in Southern California. Even though Shay has many design creations to be proud of, all of which you can see via video on her account, this gown makes a statement about our society and forces us to consider how far six-feet apart actually is. At the same time, it also speaks to our desire for fantasy and whimsical dresses during this time of unrest – perhaps even to the future of fashion. Shay spoke to POPSUGAR about her project, explaining that she had the idea for a social-distancing dress in the back of her mind since the summer. “What if there was a dress that made a social-distancing bubble all around you?” … Read the rest
