Kate Middleton Wore the Only Controversial Shoe Trend That's Royalty-Approved

Kate Middleton Wore the Only Controversial Shoe Trend That's Royalty-Approved

There’s more to Kate Middleton’s shoe collection than nude pumps. Black ankle boots, classic sneakers, and block-heel sandals are all present and accounted for, but you probably won’t find most of the current crop of controversial shoe trends: flip-flops, clunky sport sandals, and high platforms, to name a few. But there is one controversial shoe trend that’s actually royalty-approved, and that’s wedge heels (which have had a history of quickly going out of style in the past).

We’ve been covering the wedge shoe trend a lot lately, especially since celebs like Sienna Miller and Jennifer Aniston have been wearing it, and everyone seems to have an opinion about it (including the queen, who is rumored to not be a fan of the style). All of this said, Middleton chose to wear the most classic of wedge shoes: espadrilles, which are also a French-girl favorite. She wore … Read the rest

7 Rules for Wearing Cropped Flare Jeans

Flared denim has risen—both literally and figuratively. It’s no coincidence that many of our favorite new releases from denim brands are both flared and cropped. A throwback Jane Birkin–esque style, cropped flare jeans come with a variety of benefits, showing off your shoes with ease and figure-flattering capabilities among them. Beloved by stylish It girls such as Alexa Chung and Jeanne Damas and fully embraced by street style stars, this denim trend has officially hit the mainstream, proof that it’s going to be around for a while. In fact, we’d even call it a classic at this point.

Anna Wintour Just Broke One of Her Main Outfit Rules

Anna Wintour Just Broke One of Her Main Outfit Rules

Trends come and go, but there’s one thing I’m certain about in fashion: Anna Wintour is never seen without her phone and her sunglasses. Before you start mentioning her love of nude sandals, she does actually change these to boots sometimes, so you can strike them from the list. The editor in chief of Vogue and artistic director of Condé Nast always remains loyal to her personal style, and if you’re a fan, you’ll notice that she rarely carries a bag.

Wintour might be holding her sunglasses in her hand, when they’re not on her face, that is, and will have her phone in the other, but she rarely has a bag. That’s not to say she never wears one, but she is rarely pictured carrying one (she has people for that, of course), especially not when she has a red carpet event. However, yesterday, at the memorial … Read the rest

4 Items Princesses Always Pack for NYC

4 Items Princesses Always Pack for NYC

What’s that you say? You want more stories about royals? Well, ask and you shall receive. While Meghan Markle has been shying away from press while on maternity leave—and rightfully so—I’ve been chomping at the bit to see some great royal outfits. Kate Middleton has definitely been delivering lately, but I’ve also taken the opportunity to walk down memory lane. I’ve broken down Princess Grace’s favorite wardrobe basics and Princess Diana’s best vacation looks, and now I decided to set off to discover what royals consistently wear while traveling to NYC.

Princess Charlene of Monaco and Meghan Markle, for instance, are on the same page about packing their best black slouchy boots for NYC. (Markle memorably wore hers to celebrate her highly publicized baby shower in New York.) Princess Diana and Queen Silvia of Sweden both were photographed in New York wearing cap-toe pumps, while black skinny jeans have … Read the rest

How to Wear Bike Shorts Like Kim Kardashian West, EmRata, and More

How to Wear Bike Shorts Like Kim Kardashian West, EmRata, and More

Trends come and go, but only a few are strong enough to withstand months, and even years, of scrutiny. The bike-short trend is one of these. Even though they’ve been hot for a minute now (at least since the beginning of 2018), they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. They’re all over Instagram (on influencers and editors alike), and they’re particularly popular in trend-setting places like L.A. and NYC. In fact, some fashion girls have ditched their leggings altogether, opting to wear the shorter and cooler cycling style instead.

Celebrities are fans of the humble bike short, too. A-listers like Emily Ratajkowski, Romee Strijd, Jasmine Sanders, and Kim Kardashian West have all made bike shorts their summertime closet staple, and they’re styling them in the coolest ways. We have proof. Keep scrolling to see how some of our favorite fashion-forward celebrities wear their bike shorts.

Romee Strijd pairs her basic

This Nontraditional Engagement Ring Trend Is on the Rise

This Nontraditional Engagement Ring Trend Is on the Rise

Whether you may be getting engaged soon, are already married, or are single, there’s something about engagement ring trends that’s just immensely intriguing. It’s probably the only thing that people wear every day for life, so it’s pretty important. Plus, there’s the simple fact that engagement rings are very pleasing to the eye, especially when they’re designed by Anna Sheffield.

At this point, I’ve lost count of how many engagement ring trends Sheffield has had a hand in starting. The NYC-based (she also has a store in Los Angeles) jewelry designer works closely with clients and creates custom pieces in addition to the brand’s staple designs and seasonal pieces, so if anyone has a firm grasp on what engagement ring trends people are interested in at any given moment, it’s her.

I asked Sheffield what the fresh, unexpected engagement ring trend that’s currently on the rise is, and she … Read the rest

20 Epic Beauty Products Violet Grey Can't Keep in Stock

The brand’s aesthetic might draw on the glamour of Old Hollywood, but its products are designed to fit into the lives of modern women.

What this means is that there is less to sift through than at your average department store beauty counter, and you’ll walk away knowing you’ve bought something that has an expert stamp of approval.

Since Violet Grey knows what is best in beauty, I asked its beauty director, Maureen Choi, to share the best-selling products that the retailer can’t keep in stock and why they’re worth the investment. Ahead, Choi is highlighting the top-selling products, from skincare and Read the rest
