Naomie Harris Is "Fully Inhabiting Womanhood" and Winning in Hollywood

Naomie Harris Is "Fully Inhabiting Womanhood" and Winning in Hollywood

One could easily imagine that on this day, the first scorcher of the year in London, while surrounded by tropical plants in a greenhouse-slash–photo studio, that British actress Naomie Harris and I were actually in Los Angeles. But her London-ness shines too brightly for me to forget my true location. You can tell from the obvious things: Her charming north London accent is still very much present, even after multiple stints of immersive accent coaching during her 33-year-long career. Subtle signs also give it away to a fellow Brit like me: Nothing speaks to the archetypal London woman’s inherent casual:fancy ratio like her unpolished nails and flawless skin, or that she’s wearing a pair of flat white patent Christian Louboutin brogues (“I’m just all about comfort”) with a simple LBD from H&M and a little medallion necklace from Missoma.

These understatements go a long way to explaining how she remains … Read the rest

If Celebs Aren't Wearing Skinny Jeans, They're Wearing This Denim Trend

If Celebs Aren't Wearing Skinny Jeans, They're Wearing This Denim Trend

As one of the more polarizing trends out there, people tend to either love or loathe skinny jeans. Celebs specifically? Well, the most stylish A-listers out there—Chrissy Teigen, Hailey Rhode Bieber, and the like—continue to consistently step out in skinnies. That said, this crew is also flipping the switch this season by wearing the complete opposite denim trend: light-wash baggy jeans.

With the ’90s resurgence infiltrating the industry right now, it’s really not a surprise to see this trend crop up in such a major way with celebrities like Rita Ora, Kaia Gerber, and Dakota Johnson embracing the look in their off-duty lives. To get a better sense of what we mean, keep scrolling to check out how stars are styling baggy jeans now, and shop inspired styles if you’re ready to give your skinnies a break, too.

The #1 and #2 Shoes of Summer Are Under $85

The #1 and #2 Shoes of Summer Are Under $85

We interrupt our regularly scheduled fall fashion programming to remind you that it’s still summer, and we still have at least another month of wear left in our summer gear, which brings us to Lyst’s seasonal report (aka The Lyst Index: Q2 2019), which ranks the hottest fashion brands and products of the summer. 

Typically, the brands at the top of the search platform’s heap are the usual suspects (Gucci, Balenciaga, Prada), but it’s the Hottest Products section that is always fluctuating and always piques our interest. This season, it’s a mix of It bags, special clothing items, and, of course, shoes. While we knew the two shoes on the list were hot items, we were surprised that they were the only shoes on the list: Teva Hurricane XLT2 (the report states, “searches for Teva Hurricane up 350% globally over the last three months”), and Topshop Strippy Sandals, … Read the rest

Margot Robbie Wore the Chicest Pajamas and Heels to Her Premiere After-Party

Margot Robbie Wore the Chicest Pajamas and Heels to Her Premiere After-Party

In case you missed it, one of the most highly anticipated summer movies has embarked on an equally delightful press tour. When you have a style star like Margot Robbie join forces with Hollywood legends Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, you know the red carpet looks for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will be nothing short of stellar. Robbie certainly hasn’t disappointed, but we were actually particularly obsessed with her after-party look.

Attending a post-premiere party in London, Robbie traded her Oscar de la Renta gown for a Matteau matching set that looked like the chicest pajamas imaginable. To make the lounge pieces look party-ready, she added Loeffler Randall Penny Mules ($395) et voilá: Robbie created arguably the most comfortable yet chicest party look. Scroll down to see what she wore to the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood after-party.

The Fast-Fashion Sweep: 5 Fire Looks We Just Found at Our Local Mango

The Fast-Fashion Sweep: 5 Fire Looks We Just Found at Our Local Mango

Welcome to The Fast-Fashion Sweep, where our editors will make the rounds at three of our favorite affordable stores and share the hero picks that look as good IRL as they do online. 

For this iteration of The Fast-Fashion Sweep, I decided it was time to switch things up a bit. Instead of styling myself, I thought it would be fun to style our amazing community manager, Jasmine Fox-Suliaman. Together, we ventured downtown into the craze (and heat) of New York to scope out our local Mango. Since Mango isn’t a super-common brick-and-mortar store, we figured we’d give you all a detailed look at what some of the best Mango product actually looks like IRL. 

Styling Jasmine was a piece of cake because, I mean, look at her, but if I am being honest, the product selection at our Mango was what had me struggling. This shopping … Read the rest

In a Month, Everyone You Know Will Be Wearing This Dress

In a Month, Everyone You Know Will Be Wearing This Dress

We never met a floral dress we didn’t like, but that’s not to say that some aren’t more interesting than others. Depending on the color balance and the size of the bloom, some floral dresses can feel washed out or, conversely, too brash.

Summer’s take on the floral dress errs on the side of pale and interesting, with white base colors setting the fresh tone for roses, marigolds, and other delicate buds. Fall, on the other hand, has taken the opposite stance with regards to the motif, instead layering its florals over dark, brooding backdrops.

Seen on the Prada, Richard Quinn, Marques Almeida, and Paco Rabanne, the dark floral dress is set to be an integral part of our new-season wardrobes. However, unlike the knitwear and leather we’re forced to bookmark until September, this is a trend we can start phasing into our outfit repertoire right now.

Since it’s … Read the rest
