5 Casual Summer Outfit Ideas That Are So Simple

Welcome to Weekday Wardrobe, a series in which one Who What Wear editor or staffer will snap a pic of their 9-to-5 look each day and break down where you can shop it all to inspire your own everyday style.

When I met my now-husband, Nico, 16 years ago, one thing was clear: We had very different views on style. I, for one, grew up loving clothes, shoes, jewelry, shopping, and putting together outfits for literally everything. Nico on the other hand? Let’s just say he considered pajama bottoms (that were five sizes too big) to be totally acceptable to wear in public. The horror!

Despite our sartorial differences, I still fell for the guy. And now, after being together for close to 13 years, I joke that I’ve created a monster. A monster with impeccable taste and style, that is. I’m kidding. But I do love that

The Ultimate Suncare Routine to Protect Your Skin

To get a more informative (and less judgmental) take on skin cancer in young people, I tapped Joshua Zeichner, the director of cosmetic and clinical research in the department of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. I asked him if he is increasingly diagnosing skin cancers in patients 25 and under recently.

“Skin cancers are uncommon in patients under 25,” Zeichner told me. “That being said every year, I seem to find more and more skin cancers in this group of patients. This may be due to not protecting the skin as well as they should have when they were younger, the use of tanning beds, and depletion of the ozone layer allowing greater penetration of UV light to the Earth’s surface.” 

I also asked Zeichner to elaborate on what makes some young people more susceptible to skin cancer than others. “Skin cancers develop as a

Hollywood's Costume Designers Share the Secrets to Creating Authentic '40s Style

If you haven’t already finished watching Netflix’s Hollywood, don’t worry—there are no spoilers ahead—and if you haven’t even started, prepare to carve out a block in your schedule because you’ll want to binge this fanciful-yet-fulfilling eight-episode miniseries immediately. 

You don’t have to be a die-hard fan of Ryan Murphy or his remarkable cast of recurring characters in order to appreciate the sheer beauty of Hollywood. Although I happen to appreciate Murphy’s particular brand of over-the-top television (see: Nip/Tuck, The Politician, and American Horror Story: Coven, in particular), I knew Hollywood was my next must-see as soon as the first promo images were released.  

Set within Hollywood’s studio system in the post-war ’40s, the series tells an atypical tale of young ingenues and rugged romantic leads vying for stardom and the creatives and executives that usher them into the spotlight. As the fictitious Camille Washington, Laura Read More

24 Cheap But Useful Beauty and Wellness Items on Amazon

Call me crazy, but one of my favorite activities as of late is perusing Amazon. (Hey, give me a break—there’s not much to do right now.) I’ll admit that I’ve been placing at least one order a week, so I like to consider myself an expert by now. I don’t just browse for a few minutes here and there: I like to go deep into the depths of Amazon’s inventory, reading reviews, browsing best-selling lists, and everything in between. I’ve admittedly spent hours doing this, but I’ve discovered some of my favorite affordable items this way—mostly in the beauty, wellness, and fitness categories—so I can’t really complain. And now you can’t either: Everything that’s currently in my cart is under $75, so sit back and… well, you know what to do. Here are 24 cheap but useful beauty and wellness items on Amazon.

Edited is a fashion and retail technology company that uses shopping data to pinpoint the trends that people are embracing, and ditching, every season, and the results it unearths are always seriously enlightening.
