You Would Never Guess These Summer Pieces Are All Under $100

Mark A. Carlson

As the weather outside starts to heat up, it seems like there’s a common goal among fashion girls everywhere: finding the perfect summer fit. And after doing some research, it looks like there’s one place influencers are flocking to shop: Stitch Fix. More specifically, the exclusive collection that just launched with fashion influencer and body-positivity advocate, Katie Sturino.

This collaboration is special for a number of reasons, but especially because it’s the first time that non-clients can shop directly on Stitch Fix. The collection is size-inclusive (which is something Stitch Fix always prides itself on offering its clients) and inspired by Sturino’s love of primary colors and bright prints.

So, because I’m forever looking for outfit inspo, I turned to three very fashionable ladies—Vanessa Romo, Aysha Sow, and Alex LaRosa—to show me how they’re styling the chic under-$100 pieces from the collection. Spoiler alert: They

Best offers on clothing from Nike, Asos, H&M and more

Mark A. Carlson

The coronavirus pandemic has meant all non-essential businesses have been closed since lockdown began on 23 March.

It’s had a detrimental impact on fashion shops across the UK. B2B magazine, Drapers reported in-store sales have dropped 84 per cent compared to 2019, and – despite online grocery sales surging – for the rest of the retail landscape things also look bleak.

Debenhams is closing five more stores across the UK, while Oasis and Warehouse have both permenantly closed after administraitors failed to find a buyer, which also includes around 2,000 jobs losses.

That said, prime minister Boris Johnson has announced all non-essential retailers will be able to reopen in England from 15 June, a move which will include clothes shops, in the latest easing of lockdown restrictions.

As an army of shops prepare to open their doors to the public for the first time in months, many

The On-the-Rise Musician Who Champions Self-Love and Fresh Style

Mark A. Carlson

Not that you wouldn’t already be impressed by the styling and quality of images below, but for some context, we asked on-the-rise musician Maad if she would be interested in producing a quick at-home photoshoot to accompany her interview. She excitedly agreed, and the rest is history. What we expected was an assortment of creatively posed looks taken on an iPhone, maybe a friend’s camera, but what we got was a four-look, high-quality, full-blown photoshoot that was all executed at Maad’s home with the help of just one close friend. Now that you’ve been filled in on how impressed we are with the photos below, it’s time for me to brag even further about this artist.

In her short time being a solo artist, singer and songwriter Maad has released 2 EPs: Lé Funk in 2017 and Technicolor in 2018. The genre of her music is difficult to put in

Do you need a face mask and where can you buy one?

Mark A. Carlson

Ever since coronavirus began spreading across the world, there has been some debate on the use of face masks, including who should wear them and the benefits of them.

The advice in England remains that the general public shouldn’t try to buy medical face masks, as these need to be reserved for frontline staff and key workers only.

But new guidance from the government briefing on 11 May said people in England should wear face coverings, in “enclosed public spaces”, such as in shops and on public transport.

These coverings can be made from things you’ve already got at home, like an old T-shirt, or even a sports sock with just a few well-made snips with scissors and a little bit of sewing.

But if you’re not so confident in your creative abilities, there are plenty of brands are creating their own too, which we’ve rounded up below.

When an aunt sent Oye Diran an old family photo, he was mesmerised by the high sense of fashion and style exhibited by the Yoruba women of West Africa in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.

The photo was of his mother and her sister adorned in iro and buba, the colourful two-piece outfit of wrapped skirt and top popular with Yoruba women in Nigeria.

Diran, a Yoruba himself and Nigerian photographer based in New York, noticed how the style of the iro and buba had evolved over time, but that the outfit still maintained its elegance.

Inspired, he ploughed through the internet looking for more vintage images of the outfit but was disappointed with what he saw.

Mark A. Carlson

Now that it’s starting to truly feel like summer in most parts of the country, it’s getting to be too hot for all the heavy loungewear we stocked up on several months ago and beyond that, many of us are tiring of wearing the same sweatpants over and over (myself included). One solution to summer dressing while staying comfortable at home? The house dress.

The coronavirus has come for Fashion Week, but Fashion Week is unbowed. With the 2020 edition of LFWM going all-digital, the event’s key designers talk us through how they’ve adapted to showing clothes in a world where showing clothes is (almost) impossible.

What’s been the biggest challenge with producing a lockdown fashion ‘show’?

Manufacturing was one of the biggest challenges this season. When lockdown set in all of the factories started to close, but this collection was made possible by the amazing seamstresses I’ve worked with directly, sending them fabrics and patterns so they could work from home. This collection is a testament to their skill and dedication.

Everything you need to pack for your next trip abroad as travel restrictions lift

If you had grand plans for a sunny holiday this year that you’d given up on, a trip abroad may become a possibility sooner than you think.

From 6 July, British holidaymakers will once again be able to travel overseas in line with the easing of international travel restrictions across Europe, to nations where the risk of contracting coronavirus is regarded as low.

As part of a new traffic light system that will be imposed by the Joint Biosecurity Centre, if a country on the continent has low and declining rates of infection, it will receive an amber or green status. This will allow travellers to visit and return without needing to self-isolate for 14 days – a concept which has been named the “air bridges” scheme.

The coronavirus has come for Fashion Week, but Fashion Week is unbowed. With the 2020 edition of show season going all-digital, the key designers talk us through how they’ve adapted to showing clothes in a world where showing clothes is (almost) impossible.

What’s been the biggest challenge with producing a lockdown fashion ‘show’?

For this unusual season, we are using a special camera system to present a video. Even though I was not the one actually making it, this kind of production was the biggest challenge for us during lockdown.

What’s been the biggest opportunity?

We needed to show our collection in an unusual way and a video for Paris Fashion Week was exactly that. Being able to create new projects – and create something we’ve never done before – became our biggest opportunity.

SHEIN apologises and removes a swastika style necklace from its website following backlash online

Mark A. Carlson

Fashion brand SHEIN has apologised and removed a swastika style necklace from its website after receiving criticism about the product via social media.

Earlier this week customers headed to Twitter and Instagram to point out the discovery of a listing for a “metal pendant necklace” in the shape of a swastika.

“I am so disgusted by @sheinofficial’s sheer ignorance and blatant disrespect towards other cultures and religions,” activist and YouTuber Nabelor Noor wrote on Instagram.

The Designer Bags That We Really Love for 2020

Mark A. Carlson

At the beginning of the year, we already knew which designer bags were going to dominate in 2020. How did we predict correctly? Well, it’s a lot more than just guesswork. We spend time speaking to brands, buyers and looking at what’s trending in the fashion industry to see which bags are going to come out on top during the year. Of course, cult buys and new brands can emerge at any moment surprising even the most seasoned of fashion buyers and editors, but there are certain new styles that I guarantee we’ll be talking about as hero buys this December. 

That said, we didn’t know the pandemic was coming and the financial implications of that on the fashion industry and personal budgets. However, despite this, global fashion search platform Lyst revealed just yesterday in its round-up of the most popular brands of the year so far that the

Happy 25th birthday to Cher’s perfect hair in ‘Clueless’

Happy 25th birthday to Cher’s perfect hair in ‘Clueless’

25 years on, Clueless is remembered and revered for all sorts of things: the bold fashion, the sly wit, the uncanny way that Paul Rudd has refused to age even a little bit since 1995.

But the very first time you see it, the very first thing you notice about its heroine is her hair. And even now, it remains one of the film’s most defining features.

It’s with us from the opening shot of Clueless — the only thing you can really make out as Cher zips down a Beverly Hills street in her Jeep, before you can get a good look at her face or her clothes. A glorious curtain of it marks our proper introduction to her a few seconds later, as she flips it back over her face in a close-up.
