From James Dean to ’90s supermodels and even the Kardashian-Jenner clan Christmas card, little defines American-cool quite like a T-shirt and jeans. But that perfect pair of jeans is ever elusive. Gap is one of those brands that knows denim, and you can always count on it for the latest trends, as well as your time-honored go-to cuts. One of those recent trends is wide-legged cropped denim.

Moving from skinny jeans in recent years into straight-legged as my go-to, I was reluctant to try wide-legged denim as a petite person. While I occasionally love a wide-leg pant with platforms to give the legs-for-days effect, I thought cropped denim would cut off one of my best assets and make me look stumpy. So, when I got the opportunity to try them out for you, I was excited. I enlisted my mother, a Gap enthusiast, to help me. “I can … Read the rest

Winter is coming, which means our hands may soon experience more dryness than usual. We know. It’s an unfair phenomenon that the most wonderful time of the year is often marred by the onset of scaly, cracked, irritated skin, especially on our hands. Sometimes, life is harsh, but thankfully, there are remedies that can transform rough claws to soft, smooth ones that will leave your inner circle sending frantic texts requesting that handcare routine.

Based on all the soft-handed queens who comprise team Who What Wear, you might think expansive hand-softening rituals were a prerequisite for employment. (I can assure you they’re not!) That’s why we hit up the team to share their picks for the best hand creams to keep those paws soft and supple all winter.

Ahead, check out the 16 best hand creams for winter our editors personally vouch for and shop through the supplemental … Read the rest

Meghan Markle is now an oat milk latte investor. Today the Duchess of Sussex announced her first public investment in Clevr Blends, an American, women-led startup that makes instant, just-add-water, oat milk lattes filled with adaptogens, superfoods, probiotics and other wellness-y ingredients.

“This investment is in support of a passionate female entrepreneur who prioritizes building community alongside her business,” Markle told Fortune in a statement. “I’m proud to invest in [cofounder and CEO] Hannah’s commitment to sourcing ethical ingredients and creating a product that I personally love and [that] has a holistic approach to wellness. I believe in her, and I believe in her company.”

The size of Markle’s investment was not disclosed.

“Entrepreneurs need funding, but they also need advisers who care deeply about what they are building. I’m grateful to have found both in the Duchess of Sussex,” Mendoza told Fortune. “Her passion for what we’re … Read the rest

There is no doubt that mens surfer necklaces are hot. Bearing this fact in mind, we find it useful to follow Pio Sirimu and Ngugi Wa Thiong”s seminal example in using the term “orature” to denote poems, plays, stories, etc., in oral form, and in reserving the term “literature” for the same things in their written forms. Because “obloquy” has been routinely heaped upon African orature by Eurocentric critics critics of African literature, we have, in discussing African literature, found it necessary to examine at some length the qualities of African orature. furthermore, African orature is important to this enterprise of decolonizing African literature, for the important reason that it is the incontestable reservoir of the values, sensibilities, aesthetics, and achievements of traditional African thought and imagination outside the plastic arts. We are presently engaged and engrossed in imbibing, aping and executing in both speech and action all that is … Read the rest

In case you’re wondering, no, hot pants aren’t called “hot pants” just because women look “hot” in them (which they most certainly do, by the way). While the term “hot” was tacked on to the style name back in the ’50s due to the shock factor they brought, this trend is one that women originally broke out in protest of their expected dress code at the time. Longer hems and an overall modest aesthetic were the norm back in the day, but that didn’t keep women from showing off their bodies loud and proud with the evolution of short shorts. We continued to see the rise of this trend from the ’50s through the ’70s, and believe it or not, in the year 2020, as they’re back and hotter than ever. 

While this trend is certainly here to stay, it has also evolved quite a bit. I don’t want … Read the rest

We’re not sure exactly when it was that we first became fans of January Jones. Was it her most iconic role to date as Betty Draper? Or smaller “Oh my god, it’s January Jones!” roles in classic films like Love Actually circa 2003? Either way, we have major love for the actress’s quirky real-life demeanor and, of course, amazing style and beauty aesthetic. (We have dozens of screenshots on our camera rolls to prove it.) Between her practically pore-less complexion, playful approach to makeup, and super-shiny strands, we desperately want to know all her beauty secrets, especially considering she looks roughly half her 41 years.

We’re super appreciative that we’re not alone in our admiration, and Jones regularly listens to her fans’ Instagram requests by posting ample intel about her beauty routine—from the supplements she swears by to the extensive skincare rituals she credits her glowing skin to. … Read the rest

When it comes to fashion, no one has it better than women. This comes with an arrogant chauvinism, in many personalities in our midst, that further dividers and shatters families and all times of relationships in the collective of African people-just because the man maintains their ‘triblalness’ and can only see as far as the their nose. The clinging to this ‘tribalist’ mythology is a self-defeating endeavor for our people to be in a position to envision themselves as a Nation. So that, by posting our various groups and elaborating on some, is one way of the African viewers of Mzantsi to see their culture with diverse as one Culture: in our case this means a heightened our prolific culture manifesting itself as of the Nation of Africans in Mzantsi. Use a homemade cleanser from milk and honey. Use half-teaspoon milk powder and enough honey to make a paste. Add … Read the rest

We’re not going to lie, it’s been some time since we’ve put on a pair of heels, but Amina Muaddi’s collaboration with A$AP Rocky is about to change that. The talented designer teamed up with the rapper and creative extraordinaire for a new collection of four stunning shoes, and they are exactly what we needed to get excited about dressing up again. It’s Amina’s first collaboration for her own brand and it holds a special place in her heart, sharing on Instagram that despite being friends for years, the collection is over a year in the making.

“Inspired by A$AP Rocky’s personal style and cultural impact, the collaboration between AWGE and Amina Muaddi captures today’s shifting narrative,” the brand wrote in a press release. “Two usually distinct approaches to creativity merging together in order to convey a futuristic and global message.”
