It goes without saying that 2020 turned out to be a much more casual year than most of us anticipated. With widespread stay-at-home orders, we saw a rise in search for oversize joggers, stretchy pants, and cozy tube socks. But if you’re anything like us, you know that though comfort is life, it’s still cool to appreciate the season’s current and upcoming trends. We of course took note of what the “cool girls” wore to the (virtual) fashion shows and, more importantly, in their living rooms.

We did some research and partnered with a few of our favorite online retailers to see what trends we shopped for this year. With the help of Stephanie Nelson-Roberson, SVP and head of buying at Shopbop, and Celenie Seidel, senior womenswear editor at Farfetch, we rounded up the pieces everyone seemed to be in the market for this year, because they … Read the rest

Quando all’inizio dell’anno nei paesi di tutto il mondo ha avuto inizio il lockdown forzato a causa del Covid, la natura è ritornata nelle nostre città – dai delfini avvistati nei porti sardi alle capre che hanno conquistato la cittadina gallese di Llandudno. Città come Dheli hanno potuto ammirare cieli azzurri grazie all’abbassamento dei livelli di inquinamento atmosferico, mentre le emissioni di CO2 sono calate del 17% ad aprile a livello globale.

“Ci ha dato un’idea di come potrebbe essere, se riuscissimo ad affrontare il problema delle emissioni,” racconta a Vogue Corinne Le Quéré, professoressa di scienze dei cambiamenti climatici presso la East Anglia University. “È stato un messaggio positivo in un periodo in cui ce n’era estremo bisogno.”

Gwen Stefani wants to reintroduce herself to us, and we’re all ears. With her latest single, “Let Me Reintroduce Myself” being a tribute to some of her most iconic eras, we thought it was fitting to go back over Gwen’s most iconic looks. We talked with her stylist, Sonja Christensen, who is responsible for some of Gwen’s most memorable outfits, including that sheer black netted gown by Charbel Zoe Couture from The Voice‘s finale that was simply b-a-n-a-n-a-s. Speaking of that dress, Sonja revealed that it was actually her favorite recent red carpet look. “We added a ton of additional details to that dress (with the permission of the designer, of course). The dress was beautiful, and she looked absolutely stunning,” she said.

As for how Gwen’s style has evolved over the years, Sonja said, “From the ’90s compared to today, I’d characterize Gwen’s style as a … Read the rest

When it comes to taking care of our appearance, nothing else will do but the best beauty products you can find. The next step in your efforts to make your face look great is to establish whether your skin is oily, dry or showing unwanted anti-ageing spots. Once you have decided on your facial type you can decide on the type of skin care products that will give you that great look. “Why can’t our leadership deal with that issue? Why is it we say that African people are losing out in the so-called “alms” race. As they call it? Alms Race! Why aren’t we questioning our leadership when since the 1950s (and 1960s), the situation of our people worsened? We have leadership, today, that refuses to confront forthrightly the issues and the circumstance in which we find ourselves. Bantu advises poor Africans this way: “Our preparedness to take upon … Read the rest

Are you debating if you should wear your fanciest outfits for the festive season? Well, don’t think on it for another second, because you absolutely should – even if you’ll be staying safe inside and the only people really seeing your looks are online. This year has shown us that although we might not always dress for ourselves, doing so is an easy way to boost your mood. A cute outfit actually has the ability to tell your brain to release tons of happy chemicals that will make you feel as bubbly as your favorite bottle of fizz. “We don’t laugh because we are happy, we are happy because we laugh,” philosopher William James said – and when it comes to celebrating special events in lockdown, that quote couldn’t ring more true.

Rituals and rites of passage are some of the things that make us feel … Read the rest

Like many people, I’ve spent a lot of time at home over the past few months. The weather has turned sharply cold and I’ve been on the search for comfy clothing that lets me lounge comfortably at home with my kids during their virtual school sessions and run quick grocery errands without having to change my outfit.

After searching online and lurking reviews, I came across PRETTYGARDEN’s Solid Two Piece Sweatsuit ($19-34) and I’ve never felt more excited to jump out of bed every morning. The set comes with a long-sleeved crew neck and sweatpants that are practically the perfect blend between “don’t bother me, I’m on a care-free vacation” and “yeah, I know I have good fashion taste.”

The two-piece set is super soft and cozy, making it ideal for lounging comfortably at home with a cup of hot chocolate. I simply want to snuggle with the nearest person … Read the rest

Revivals aren’t always successful, but the recent reboot of Saved by the Bell has been a huge hit. With nostalgic reprisals of the old cast – we’re talking about A.C. Slater (Mario Lopez), Jessie Spano (Elizabeth Berkley), Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), and Kelly Kapowski (Tiffani Thiessen) – as well as fresh, new faces and socially relevant storylines, what’s not to love? We’re still just as distracted by the outfits as we were when we watched the original TV show, because they’re really quite noteworthy.

The first season starts with a class divide after the merging of kids from Douglas High and Bayside High. The series follows the ups and downs of the Douglas kids trying to fit in with new school programs as well as varying social differences. Staying true to its original ’90s roots, the colorful wardrobes fit in seamlessly with today’s current trends – all the clothes are … Read the rest
