This North Face Collection Really Makes Us Wanna Go Outside

It’s not heresy to say that the North Face is better known for its winter-ready puffer jackets than for springtime clothes. But the outdoorsy brand’s latest “Urban Exploration” line, set to drop this month, seems ready to change all that. It is the third collection produced in collaboration with Japanese designer Kazuki Kuraishi, who has been doing his thing to elevate the legendary brand’s basics for several years now. The entire collection is built to be mixed and matched, and feels like the kind of thing that’ll kick-start any spring wardrobe—whether you live in the city, the mountains, or any other socially distant space in between.

Familiar North Face signatures abound: windproof parkas, water-resistant overshirts, and bold graphic T-shirts. But a closer look reveals that Kuraishi has pared back many of the garments to their essentials. Details like buttons and stitching are tonal, matched to

Alexa Chung Just Showed Us Everything She Has Worn at Home

As most of the nation has now moved indoors for the foreseeable, businesses up and down the country are operating from kitchen tables and makeshift desks. Everyone we have spoken to about working from home has stressed the importance of getting dressed for productivity and installing a sense of routine, as tempting as a day in pajamas might sound.

For the past decade, every outfit Alexa Chung has worn out of the house has been heavily documented. She has a knack for putting clothes together that is both playful and low-key and really encapsulates the British sensibility.

When it comes to working from home, Alexa is very much in the “get up and get dressed” camp. Below, she shows Who What Wear what she has worn for six days of video calls, once-a-day walks and evenings on the sofa. Thanks to her boyfriend playing the role of photographer (and quickly

11 Makeup Products to Use When Working From Home

As a remote employee, I’ve been working from home for 4.5 years, which is a long time. My WFH tricks have certainly fluctuated throughout the years, but one thing that’s remained constant is that I always put on makeup, and on the rare days that I don’t, I feel less awake. Yes, it’s in my head, but if something keeps me from being productive, regardless of whether or not it’s tangible, I’m not going to do it. I’d much rather just take the extra 10 minutes to put on some makeup in the morning

The thing is, I steer clear of heavy makeup and stick to only natural products that allow my skin to glow as opposed to masking it. And I don’t bother with a lot of gadgets and tools. Just using my fingers, for the most part, speeds up the task a lot. I’ve stuck to

Bill Belichick, Who Wears Sweats to Work, Has Decided Now Is the Time to Start Dressing

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is as famous for his uniform as any coach can be: he’s known for his unique combo of hoodies, sweatshirts with the sleeves cut off, swishy Nike track pants, and a beanie perched on top of his head maximally askew. In other words, he looks like most of the world does right now, as more people than ever are staying home—and comfortable—to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. But today, in a video posted by the Patriots, Belichick (in his finest monotone, obviously) shared his appreciation for doctors, nurses, and medical workers and encouraged everyone to stay home. It was very nice, and will surely lead to a 1000% increase in New England residents willing to shelter in place. But the video was also shocking—jarring even.

That’s because the man who’s spent practically all his time in the spotlight wearing a

How to Get Smooth Skin, According to Experts

If you feel like you’re doing the most you can with your at-home skincare routine but still not seeing the smoothing results you seek, it might be time to level up your game and take it to the pros. If you’re ready to work with your dermatologist, Rogers recommends exploring lasering (ablative and non-ablative) resurfacing, which is the most powerful treatment available for addressing texture concerns. “A gentle version is the Clear+Brilliant treatment,” says Rogers. “I recommend this treatment two weeks before any big event for glowing, smooth skin.” For a more aggressive option, she counsels patients to try the CO2 laser, which she uses daily to treat scars, wrinkles, and deep texture issues.

If a spa visit is more your speed, Allison Tray, proprietress of Tres Belle Spa in Brooklyn, recommends peels of varying strengths. “If we are working with a very surface issue, a light peel as

The 11 Best Jeans for Women Over 50

Regardless of what year you came into this world, we can all learn a thing or two about style from our wiser fashion counterparts. These are the women who have lived to see generations worth of trends come and go and who have spent the better half of a lifetime honing in on what they can now claim as a strong sense of personal style. Since this group of women offers a wealth of knowledge, I was curious to know what kind of style lessons they can teach the rest of us, especially when it comes to a topic as timeless as denim.

I spoke with two of the many chic older women I’ve taken to following on Instagram for style inspiration: Grece Ghanem, a 54-year-old from Montréal with a penchant for print-mixing and “Old Céline,” and Renata Jazdzyk, a 50-something from the UK you’ve seen wearing
