The 10 Best Skinny Jeans for Every Issue With Fit

Whether skinny jeans are currently the “trendiest” style on the market or not, we still can’t get seem to enough of them. Yes, yes, we’re totally down with the cooler fashion-girl favorites that are continuously emerging and the new jean trends dominating the runway too, but there’s no denying that it’ll be hard to completely break up with the slim denim that’s paired so perfectly with everything in our closets for so many years.

But let’s face it: The style does come with its leg of problems. It can take years to find the ultimate pair that’s not too tight in the knees, doesn’t sag in the butt, is slimming enough in the calf, but isn’t too tight in the thigh. Are we right? Well, if you’re still searching (and not giving up on skinnies altogether), we’re helping you find the perfect pair. That’s right—we enlisted NYC-based denim aficionado and

6 H&M Items I’m Buying to Look Like a French Girl

Some may say the French-girl obsession has gone too far, but if you ask me, it hasn’t gone far enough. Thanks to their effortless sense of style and unique outfit configurations, the obsession with them is one we aren’t quite ready to quit. To no one’s surprise, the French have mastered summer style before it’s even started. Wearing everything from those milkmaid tops the fashion community can’t stop talking about to easy-to-wear printed dresses, I decided it was time to do something about my wardrobe envy, stat!

While I would love to be able to afford the exact items some of my favorite Parisian It girls have been flaunting, I need to be practical with my purchases whether I like it or not. When I’m not shopping at Zara, I love a good H&M haul, and it just so happens the retailer has every key summer item I need to

How to Navigate Every Kind of Resortwear Dress Code

Full discretion: I’m a member of the unfortunate community of individuals who absolutely cannot properly pack for vacation. At a minimum, I spend nearly three months of the year traveling, yet I haven’t mastered the art of curating a mini wardrobe that’s weather-appropriate, event appropriate, and full of all the essentials. Without fail, I either pack too little (and find myself with only three pairs of underwear and no toothbrush for a two-week trip) or too much (and am left with a suitcase five kilos over the limit).

The worst-case scenario? Arriving at my destination and realizing I’ve failed to pack stylish outfits that suit the dress code of the resort I’m staying at. I once packed my most fashionable assortment of items for a trip to Dubai, only to find out that none of my pieces suited the strict dress code. That being said, resort dress codes … Read More

Anna Wintour Revealed Her 5 Favorite Brands of Fashion Month

As you know, fashion month just concluded this week after another whirlwind tour of New York, London, Milan, and Paris. (And don’t forget Copenhagen!) While we’ve done our fair share of trend coverage—see links above—I’m always curious to hear other people’s perspectives. Well, specifically Anna Wintour’s. In a new video for Vogue‘s “Go Ask Anna” series, the magazine’s editor in chief shed light on her top brands of the season.

Wintour named five of her favorite shows—one from each city, plus Tom Ford who broke from the mold and presented in Los Angeles. “First and foremost, I want to applaud Tom Ford for showing in Los Angeles because I totally reject the idea that everyone always has to do the same thing and show in the same way,” Wintour says in the video. “We’re in an industry that’s meant to be about change, so

10 Nourishing Hair Masks For Thicker Hair

Box braids are one of my favorite protective hairstyles. They’re low-maintenance, give me tremendous length, and offer a much-needed break from using heat tools on my delicate natural hair. I’d say these stylish plaits are an all-around win, except that after a couple months of carefree living, my strands are left in serious need of help in the thickness department. That’s where hair masks come in to save the day.

These handy pots of nutrient-dense goodness are a catchall for any hair problem you might be experiencing that’s causing your tresses to appear more thin than you’d like. My post-braid thinness is mainly perpetuated by the overuse of clarifying shampoo, which I have to use for a few days to get my hair clear of product and scalp debris. Not to mention the weeks of routine hair shedding that’s finally free to fall, a shedding process I can only imagine
