4 Workwear Looks Inspired by Kate Middleton's Coronation Style

For the first time in 70 years, a new monarch was crowned in Great Britain. The world witnessed history being made on May 6, 2023, with the coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla. In addition to the history made, the day served as an unofficial fashion show as the royals and their guests walked into Westminster Abbey in their matching hats and dresses and royal finery. Per usual, since her official initiation to the royal family in 2011, the now Princess of Wales, aka Kate Middleton, has captured the hearts of royal watchers due to her poise and stylish ensembles, which never seem to miss. Throughout the numerous events surrounding the coronation, the princess looked stunning, especially in her formal looks, from the Ellie Saab tulle set she wore to the Buckingham Palace garden party (an outfit she first wore to the Royal Ascot in 2019) to the blue robe she wore to reflect her status as Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order during the coronation ceremony. While we love to admire and dream about those looks, it’s her accessible style from less formal events that makes her an effortless style icon.

‘Simplicity is Key’: Outfits Inspired by Sade

The sultry, husky voice of Helen Folasade Adu, better known as Sade (pronounced, Sha-Day), may be familiar to you. Still, there's much about the woman behind the eponymous band and contralto vocals that keeps an air of mystery. Nigerian-born Adu moved to England with her mother when she was four after her parents split up. At 18, Adu went to Saint Martin's School of Art, where she studied fashion design. After graduating, Adu modeled briefly before joining a British band as a backup singer.

Cold Weather Outfits Inspired by Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy's Classic Look

As Y2K and 90s trends take the fashion world by storm (and show no sign of letting up), it can sometimes be easy to feel left in the dust with the fashion trends of yore, especially if the butterfly hairclips and lowrise jeans are not for you. However, the beauty of the 90s through Y2K style eras is that there is something for everyone: bubblegum pop fun (Britney Spears and the Spice Girls), grunge (think Winona Ryder and Drew Barrymore) or a more classic look – enter, Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy.

Our Favorite Classic Looks from the Gilded 2022 Met Gala

Another year, another Met Gala that stopped us in our tracks. The 2022 theme “Gilded Glamour and White Tie” is the second part of the Met's two-part exhibition, "In America: An Anthology of Fashion." This year’s prompt makes one think of the lavish wealth of the 19th century, a time of industrialization when the wealthy put their wealth on full display. While not every celebrity served this theme, there were some incredible looks on the red carpet. Here are some of our favorite classic looks from the 2022 first Monday in May.

Kate Middleton-Inspired Dresses for Easter and Spring

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, may not yet be the Queen consort of England and the Commonwealth, but she is undoubtedly the queen of classic fashion. I have yet to see a Kate outfit that I wouldn’t wear, and every dress on her recent royal tour of the Caribbean is no exception. Throughout the trip, the Duchess wore one feminine midi dress after another, each beautiful and colorful and, in my view, perfect inspiration for the Easter season. Even if I can't afford to replicate her looks to a te

Runway to Realway: Think Pink for Spring

After two years of muted color palettes and comfy sweatsuits and leggings, both the spring/summer and fall/winter 2022 Fashion Weeks reminded us what structure, color, and going out could look like. The color of choice? Hot pink. During the Spring/Summer shows including Versace and Dior, monochromatic hot pink looks reigned supreme. Early March when designers debuted their fall/winter lines, Valentino debuted a stunningly saturated runway full of hot pink. According to Harper's Bazaar, this trend isn’t isolated to the runway.

Kim Kardashian’s Worst Advice for Women and Where #GirlBoss Culture Falls Short

Last week, in an interview with Variety, Kim Kardashian said “I have the best advice for women in business: Get your f—ing ass up and work. It seems like nobody wants to work these days.” The interview, meant to promote the Kardashian-Jenner family’s new Hulu show, The Kardashians, was done alongside her sisters and mom, and like with most Kardashian news, you have probably heard about it whether you wanted to or not. This comment left Kardashian in a mire of disgust and eye rolls, as women ac

How to Bring the Rodarte Spring Collection to Your Fall Wardrobe

A creative and feminine lookbook to inspire and elevate your fall style Fall Fashion Week 2019 has come and gone, but the styles released then will be around forever—or, well, until the next trend cycle. Paradoxically, one of the standouts of NYFW was a brand that had no presence on the catwalk. Rodarte, the label of sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, instead released a lookbook for its 2020 Spring Ready-to-Wear Collection. The collection featured dreamy pastels, 1950s elegance, 1980s silhouettes

3 Ways Shopping Vintage Makes a Difference

A normal Saturday for me always involves coffee, comfy shoes, and hours spent in my local thrift stores. It sounds like a typical weekend errand, but for the past year, this ritual has been strictly business, as I scour the racks looking for vintage items to add to my online vintage shop’s inventory — and I love every second of it. Starting a vintage clothing shop had been a dream of mine for years; but it wasn’t until last year, that I slowly started to turn my hobby of buying up old vintag

4 Lessons from Senior Style Icons That Surpass Time

Flip through any major magazine, and you’ll find that most of the women featured range from ages 18 to 30. Sometimes even younger. Kaia Gerber, who dominated the runways during fashion month, is just 16 years old. Bella Hadid, Victoria’s Secret model and designer muse, turned 21 only last month. The fashion industry has been known to put young women on a pedestal, but with the recent push toward a more diverse runway, older models have been cast in fashion week shows and designer campaigns. May

Style Lessons from My Grandma That Changed the Way I Dress Forever

These old-school rules are tried and true. We all have our fashion icons and inspirations; my grandmother, Mimi, is one of mine. Mimi doesn’t dress in a stereotypical grandma style but rather as I imagine Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn would if they were still alive today. Her style is elegant and timeless but remains current and an inspiration for me as I wade through all of today's trends. Recently, on a visit to my grandparents' house, I stopped and admired the photographs of my grandma from

If You Love Madewell and Etsy, You’ll Love Natalie Borton

The California-cool designer on style, body image, blogging, and motherhood The way we dress is often a reflection of how we feel on the inside. For Natalie Borton, San Diego–based jewelry designer, blogger, wife, and mother of two, personal style was a long, tedious road. Having struggled in the past with anorexia, Natalie knows firsthand what it’s like to feel uncomfortable in your own skin. But through recovery, she came to appreciate a style all her own—one that makes her feel confident an

I’m Building an Ethical Wardrobe Thanks to These 3 Tricks

Yes, it can be done on a budget! Ever since I was a little girl, I've loved to see how people express themselves with fashion. Nowhere have I witnessed this more than in New York City, where I've been living for the past 3 months as an intern for Verily. I was prepared to take on the iconic city and leave transformed by the trendsetters around me. What actually happened was more surprising. At Verily I was introduced to differences between fast and ethical fashion. I was struck by the fact tha

4 Game-Changing Lingerie Brands You’ve Never Heard of (But Will Love)

Body positive, inclusive, and less sexualized lingerie companies are having a moment. That doesn’t mean the new crop of undies are boring—we love a cute bra and pair of undies just as much as the next girl, which is why we’re pumped to finally have options outside of the Victoria’s Secret canon to try. From campaigns featuring models of different shapes and sizes, to Photoshop-free policies, to ethically sourced products, we’ve rounded up our new favorite lingerie brands that are making a diffe

Why I Stopped Wearing Leggings in Public

When I started college four years ago, my closet was full of awesome dresses, leather flats, and blazers. I wanted my look to be a Bacall-meets-Annie-Hall hybrid, complete with femininity and gumption. After a few short weeks, though, I felt that slipping away. The modern college girl uniform of yoga pants, Nikes, and oversize T-shirts was cementing itself in my wardrobe. Suddenly, I found myself reaching for my brother’s old soccer sweatshirt a few times a week while my tailored skirts collect

The One-Piece Is Here To Stay—and It Matters More Than You Might Think

We're talking way more than just trends. The sun is out and summer is here, which means a solid two months of beaches and pools. In years past, that would mean bikinis galore, but looking at popular swim suit retailers this year, we are seeing a shift in the status quo—bikinis, while by no means gone, have been sent to the back of the line with the resurgence of the once-rejected one-piece. In fact, according to retail data source EDITED, one-pieces are selling three times faster this year than
