11 Lingerie Brands All French Girls Swear By

When it comes to effortlessly chic style, we’re constantly chasing that je ne sais quoi of all French girls. Breton stripes, ballet flats, their ability to totally transform a look with the simple addition of a blazer or leather jacket; it’s as if all Parisians are born with that innate confidence of dressing that we spend the better part of our lives in pursuit of. And we want in. This season, we’re attacking our French-girl wardrobe in the most logical way possible: We’re starting with our lingerie drawer. After all, there’s something about slipping into a romantic lacey bralette we want to show off just as much as the shirt we layered on top that turns our everyday stroll into a little more of a runway strut—even if no one else knows it.

From couture creations to affordable styles you can truly stock up on, here are 11 French

The 20 Best Cheap Spring Accessories That Look So Expensive

One of my guilty fashion pleasures is a good T-shirt. I would honestly wear one every single day if I could (and I try my hardest to do so). As much as I try to force myself into more elaborate tops and outfit combos, my default is always some combo of jeans and a T-shirt. Luckily for me, with the addition of a few strategic accessories, you can make the classic T-shirt outfit feel modern and new.

In fall, it’s a chic pair of knee-high boots and a blazer. In summer, it’s a midi slip skirt and elevated sandals. This spring, it’s a few key accessories like chain necklaces and polished sunglasses that are going to make my favorite tees feel elevated and expensive. The best part is that these accessories are secretly super affordable if you know the right places to look. Below, I’m highlighting the best cheap

17 of The Best Ribbed Knit Loungewear Pieces

Given that the amount of time we’re spending indoors has greatly increased over the past month when it comes to our wardrobes, we have loungewear on the brain quite a lot right now. Last year at this time, my inbox was inundated with marketing emails about new spring dresses, vacation dressing, and the latest designer It bags and shoes. This year, emails about sweatpants, leggings, sneakers, pajamas, and slippers are dominating my inbox.

I’m sure that we can all agree that spending a lot of money on loungewear isn’t on our to-do lists right now, but finding the best affordable loungewear certainly might be. All knit loungewear is not created equal, and if you’re on the hunt for loungewear that looks and feels expensive but is far from it, your best bets are ribbed knit items. The textured fabric has some weight to it and falls nicely, as opposed to

25 Comfortable Dresses You Can Wear as Nightgowns

I used to daydream about waking up in the morning, rolling out of bed, and getting right to work in my pajamas. It sounded like the ultimate luxury. But now that I—and a lot of the country—am currently living in my dream world, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss getting dressed up for a day of work… at my office… with people. Just to be clear, there’s nothing stopping me from picking—and wearing!—an outfit that doesn’t consist of loose, stretchy pieces except for myself, but honestly, the idea of putting on a pair of jeans is just a little more than my brain can handle right now. The idea of wearing flowy, even shapeless, dresses that resemble nightgowns, though? Now that’s something I fully support. So if you, like me, are getting a little bored of wearing the same ol’ sweatsuits, here are 25 dresses I’m currently

How to Air-Dry Your Hair, According to Your Natural Texture

Regardless of your hair type—coily, thick and wavy, fine and short—mastering the art of the perfect air-dry is, in fact, an art. Sure, blow-dryers, straighteners, and curling irons can throw plenty of arm-breaking curveballs your way, but mastering the au naturel, step-out-of-the-shower-and-go aesthetic is an intimidating beast in and of itself. With so many potential variables like climate, products, application timing, and hair texture, things can go awry quickly, and there definitely isn’t a one-size-fits-all prescription.

Air-drying your hair with celeb-level finesse can be a total crapshoot, but we’re here to change that. Enter a course in Expert Air-Drying 101, courtesy of one of the best hairstylists in the industry, Cynthia Alvarez

Working with clients with a wide variety of lengths and textures (her regulars include Shakira, Maye Musk, and Dascha Polanco), Alvarez knows a thing or two about styling every kind of strand situation—with or without tools

This Revealing Lace-Up Trend Is About to Take Over

No, seriously—whether you’re ready or not, this micro-trend is swiftly marking its territory as one of the hottest styles to try this spring and summer season. The trend we speak of is better seen than described, but if we had to try it’s basically any article of clothing that slinkily ties and wraps around a bare midriff. These wraparound ties can be connected to a top, skirt, or even swimwear, which we’re anticipating seeing a lot more of come summer 2020.

This trend was unsurprisingly very prevalent in the ’90s (which you can see via the Prada F/W 92 runway image below) when skin-baring silhouettes were pretty much all anyone cared about. As we encroach on warmer weather, we’re predicting that this micro-trend is about to make it big once again in this decade. Influencers have already started wearing it and retailers are already hopping on board. If you ask
