People With the Best Freckles on the Internet Crown These 9 Foundations Supreme

Growing up, I always felt jealous of anyone with freckles. (I thought of freckles like constellations, each person's unique and beautiful in their own way.) Two such people are Larsen Thompson and Joyjah Estrada, talented models who wear their freckles proudly and with a whole lot of style. However, it wasn't always the case for these two, and in their respective journeys to embracing their freckles, they've figured out what makeup works for them, particularly when it comes to foundation. Depending on the amount of coverage your foundation offers, it can play up your natural features, camouflage them, or completely hide them. Below, Thompson and Estrada share their past challenges, advice, and holy-grail products that show off their fabulous freckled skin.Read on if you love your freckles ...

Statement Hats Will Be Spring’s Biggest Accessory Trend

Photo: Imaxtree Throughout time, there have been debates about the importance of fashion. Some find it ripe with frivolity. Others see it as a pivotal part of the culture woven into society's fabric. While my own beliefs fall into the latter, I can sometimes understand why others may consider the matter of sartorial choices less than serious. There are, after all, so many new trends that can fee...

Who What Wear Weddings: Kat Collings and Zac Wolf

Welcome to Who What Wear Weddings, which is essentially fashion people getting married! We'll be showcasing stylish weddings replete with must-save inspiration images and shoppable elements (this is Who What Wear, after all) and peppered with useful tips and learnings straight from the newlywed. We're kicking off the series with our own editor in chief's wedding. In February of 2007, my freshman year at UCLA, I got a random Facebook message inviting me to an acquaintance’s party. Fast forward to Saturday, and I put on my best dress (an Alice + Olivi...

3 Jewelry Trends Worth Investing In, According to a Designer

Photo: Courtesy of Blumarine; Imaxtree/ Bally When you think about the piece in your closet that brings you the most joy, which is it? For some, it may be a great pair of jeans or a designer handbag, but for Erin Sachse Nathan, it's jewelry. And while it may seem a little reductive that the founder of a fine jewelry brand would derive their greatest gratification from gemstones, you'll get it on...

This Trend Changed My Winter Outfit Rotation, and Now It's All I Want to Wear

Dressing for the cold means breaking out a lot of fun fashion things: fur-lined boots, heavy-duty coats, obnoxiously oversize scarves… The list goes on. But until very recently, skirts were notably missing from my winter wardrobe. Yes, stockings and tights do exist, but sometimes, dealing with runs and nicks leads to more hassle than relief. And honestly, neither comes close to matching the insulating capacity of actually wearing pants. Thank goodness the widespread revival of maxi skirts has led me to better options.  Thinking back, I've never really given them the credit they deserved—midi skirts have dominated my closet since 2013. Now that I'm firmly aboard the floor-length-skirt train (Saint Laurent is largely to blame), my winter outfit rotation has changed dramatically. My November ...

I Wore Men's Clothing for a Week, and the Resulting Looks Might Surprise You

Welcome to I Tried It Month, where we’ll be publishing a new fashion, beauty, or wellness article every day that features a first-person account of shaking up an old habit, pushing beyond a comfort zone, or simply trying something new. Follow along for 31 days of storytelling, including everything from trying new beauty treatments to copying the most risqué runway looks of the season.There's no doubting the fact that oversize, menswear-inspired fashion is in right now. For proof, just look at every daytime look worn by Bella Hadid and Hailey Bieber, or any recent runway show for The Row, Peter Do, or even Miu Miu (its S/S 22 collection was more than just covetable micro minis and belly tops). But when I tasked myself with testing out this trend a few weeks ago, I knew I had to go all in. I...

The 27 Best Logo Tote Bags to Invest In

Photo: Imaxtree Allow me to take you back in time. It's 2018 and the song dominating the radio is God's Plan by Drake. There's no TikTok yet, but you can't scroll through Instagram without spotting an outfit from Hailey Bieber and Dua Lipa. It was wild for those of us who lived through (and reported trends) at that time. But possibly the craziest thing to come out of that year was the wide embra...

My 50-Year-Old Mom and I Rarely Agree, But We Both Love These 29 Nordstrom Finds

I've always had a lot of energy, especially when I was a baby. In my youth, I would bounce throughout the house with so much fury that my mom was desperate to find a place where I could get all of that energy out, so we headed to the mall. She would mall-walk and push me in a stroller for hours every week. My mom recounts this as the start of my love for shopping. I feel the ultimate sense of nostalgia when we shop together.I just spent some time at home for the holidays, and per usual, we headed to the mall. I'm always trying to overhaul her wardrobe and convince her to try everything that I'm seeing on the streets of New York. We got overwhelmed by the hustle and bustle of late Christmas shoppers, so online shopping it was. We disagree on a lot of the controversial fashion trends, but af...

I've Tried Out Hundreds of Fashion Items This Year—These 21 Were Clear Winners

You've probably already overanalyzed your Spotify Wrapped by now (yes, you really did play that Taylor Swift song that many times), but let me present you another idea: a yearly summary of your closet. I wish my closet had its own algorithm to do it for me, but every year I like to take a look back at the most-worn pieces in my closet, as it helps me dictate exactly which purchases ended up being worth it and how to be a better shopper in the next year. Since I already am constantly sharing my shopping finds, I thought it would make the most sense to share the best items I've worn this year. I promise it's not as repetitive as the music choices of your friend group. From my favorite J.Crew cashmere sweater to my now well-loved Staud bags, I've really put the items below to the true wear te...

19 Holy Grail Beauty Products That You’ll Love Forever

Photo: Bianca Lambert As a kid and teenager, I spent hours in my bathroom grooming myself. Looking back, that might have seemed a little vain, but it was less about vanity and more about curiosity. I loved experimenting with new products even if the ads on television and in magazines weren't reflective of my skin and hair needs as a young Black girl. But at the time, as I absorbed all of the sto...
