5 Outdated Spring Trends to Clean Out From Your Closet

I don’t know about you, but cleaning out my closet is usually the last thing I want to do, yet it always feels so good to purge the old and make room for the new once I get around to doing it. So now that I’ve been spending a lot more time at home (read: all my time), I’ve inevitably been getting around to the task. To get some intel on which spring fashion trends to donate and which to replace them with, I reached out to five celebrity stylists whose literal job is to make sure their A-list clients look as chic and up-to-date as possible.

I knew their recommendations would be good, but I didn’t know they’d be this good. I couldn’t agree with their selections more, which is why I’m jumping at the chance to share the intel here just in case you’re also itching to

The 8 Best Jean Brands for Hourglass Figures

Shopping for jeans isn’t easy for anyone. Our bodies are all so different that it’s tough to find a truly perfect pair straight off the rack. That’s where having a great tailor comes in handy, but it also helps to know which brands best fit you, requiring only a little tailoring if any at all.

I find my body type particularly tough to shop for: I have skinny legs and a small waist but a more pronounced butt than most people expect. This means that most jeans I try on are either too big in the waist or too tight in the rear. But after plenty of trial and error, I’ve finally learned which brands and styles are ideal for me (and other women with this dilemma).

To save you all those extra trips to the fitting room (or the endless online returns), I’m sharing my favorites for this body

25 Things I’m Buying During Violet Grey’s Memorial Day Sale

My adoration for Violet Grey (aka, one of my favorite retailers, which only offers the crème de la crème of beauty offerings) comes at a price. And yes, I mean that literally. Even though I’ve been leaning into more affordable skincare and makeup, I’ve had champagne taste, according to my mom, since preschool. Eek, I can’t help it! I pretty much always have a running list of splurge-worthy lipsticks, face creams, hair masks, and other glittering beauty concoctions I desperately want to slather all over my body.

But back to those high-price stakes I mentioned. Due to Violet Grey’s highly selective nature, the majority of products it offers swings heavily toward the “intense” side of the cost pendulum. Therefore, when I do splurge for something on my wish list, it’s usually in one- or two-product increments. I’m totally fine with this cycle, and it gives me

Some people might advocate for investing in luxury basics, but I’m not one of those editors. (Sorry, The Row.)

Biotin and Vitamin C Might Cause Your Skin to Break Out

In short, ingesting vitamin C does not have the same potential to irritate the skin or cause breakouts as topical vitamin C, because the modality of absorption and form of vitamin C is different,” confirms Koszyk.

“Vitamin C is one of those nutrients that are as popular skincare actives as they are as dietary nutrients. What’s interesting is the different modalities of topical application versus ingestion work best with different forms of vitamin C. Vitamin C and many antioxidants in plants and superfoods are unstable when used as topical skincare, so we can’t expect a vitamin C–rich citrus fruit to yield those same great nutritional wellness benefits just by rubbing it on our skin.”

However, ingesting vitamin C is a different story, she says. “Our bodies are adapted to absorb vitamin C through our food, so ingesting a vitamin C–rich fruit is the best way to reap the
