The 3 Summer 2020 Lingerie Trends to Know

Hey, don’t roll your eyes just yet—underwear goes through trend cycles just like the rest of the ready-to-wear world, and we have a lingerie expert here to prove it. I don’t know about you, but lingerie fascinates me, as it’s an article of clothing basically everyone wears but never really talks about. It’s not necessarily taboo, but since it’s rarely seen, it goes undiscussed. If you’re someone who takes great pride and joy in your negligee drawer, this is quite disappointing.

Clearly, we’re about to talk in great detail about summer lingerie trends—summer underwear trends to be specific. We reached out to an expert on the matter to give us the 411 on which underwear styles are on the rise, and more importantly, which are quickly dying. Read on as Sandra Rose, VP of merchandising and brand at Journelle (one of the best lingerie destinations, if

This Is How to Perfect Athleisure Style

It’s no secret that the athleisure trend is everywhere right now. The fashion industry has fully embraced the trend, and its popularity probably has something to with its comfort factor. We’ve already covered the best athleisure brands and made the case for cool sneakers, but this time, we were curious to find out just how to make sweatpants look fashionable and cool.

Sweatpants don’t need to be reserved for a workout or your next Netflix binge—and celebrities prove it. They’ve shown us that the way to style them really comes down to adding pieces to your outfit that don’t belong in the gym. Gigi Hadid achieved this look by wearing hers with a structured white coat and cat-eye sunglasses. On the other hand, Kendall Jenner paired hers with a turtleneck top and crossbody bag. Want to see how to get their looks?

The 25 Best Slippers for Women That Are Cute and Cozy

I’m not going to lie—under normal circumstances, slippers would usually be among the last things I would want to spend my money on, at least when it comes to fashion. Ahead of them would be items such as going-out shoes, jeans, tanks, party dresses, jewelry, and so much more. After all, why spend on something that’s literally not going outside your home?

Well, it never ceases to surprise me how things can change in a short amount of time. In light of recent events, I’ve been lucky enough to spend the majority of my weekdays working from home, and about 99% of my time just home, in general. This means that, for me, home clothes are the new going-out clothes, and on my list of priorities, comfort is number one. In other words, spending on slippers isn’t such a silly idea now, and my current wish list

My Mom Wore These 9 Trends in the '80s, and Now I Do Too

My mom and her friend wearing Laura Ashley dresses to a wedding in 1984.

Not too long ago, Urban Outfitters came out with its collaboration with iconic ’80s brand Laura Ashley. I’ll be completely honest, it wasn’t until I showed the pieces to my mom and aunt that I realized just how iconic the brand was—especially to my mom and her stylish group of friends. Immediately my mom showed me the photo above of her and one of her best friends wearing Laura Ashley dresses to a wedding in 1984. How did I respond? By looking up Laura Ashley dresses on Etsy and ordering one for myself, of course. 

The F/W 18 runways proved the ’80s are back, and if the return of the decade is anything like the ’90s have been this past year, the resurgence of trends from this time are only just starting to … Read More

8 Outdated Jewelry Trends—and What to Buy Instead

In order to welcome something new into your closet, you often have to say goodbye to something else. This is an easy sentiment to remember when it comes to clothing, but as far as jewelry is concerned, we often turn a blind eye. Since your jewelry (no matter how you store it) takes up significantly less space than a coat or a pair of jeans, the buildup of excess and outdated pieces can easily go unnoticed. Spring-cleaning involves all areas of your wardrobe, including jewelry—fine, costume, and everything in between. 

Here to help us decide what to clean out and what to keep from our jewelry drawers this season are a handful of the industry’s most well-respected jewelry designers. Their quotes are strictly from an industry standpoint—what they have been seeing in the market and what their customers have been spending on. That being said, we are also huge proponents
