Ann Taylor to ditch alpaca wool after PETA probe

Ann Taylor is packing up the alpaca. Ascena Retail Group, the clothing conglomerate that owns the Ann Taylor, LOFT and Lou & Grey plans to stop using wool from the llama-like creatures amid concerns from animal-rights activists about the sometimes brutal process of producing it. Ascena’s brands currently sell several sweaters made with fabric blends...

Pandemic fallout: 40-plus retail chains bankrupt

When Archie Jafree heard that Lord & Taylor filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in early August, he was sad about the fate of the storied retailer with roots dating back to 1824. Still, the 36-year-old northern Virginia resident acknowledged he hadn’t shopped there in months, preferring instead to go to Nordstrom and Zara, where he feels the customer service is better. “It had good quality clothes,” Jafree said of Lord & Taylor, “but they hadn’t evolved with the times.” Many shoppers like Jafree are...

This Cool Color Trend Is Taking Over Fashion Month

If color trends were like the beloved offspring in the grand family of fashion, then the attendees of Milan Fashion Week have a very obvious favorite child. The street style scene has been dipped in various tones of this shade and, like Billie Eilish’s hair (that's a clue!), we couldn't be more into it. After days of monitoring the stylish behaviors of Milan's impeccably dressed show-goers, we're declaring green the official color of the season and there's nothing Grinch-like about it. We’ve spo...

These Are All The Presidents' Day Fashion Sales You Need To Know

Is it just us, or has it been ages since the last big round of sales? During the holidays, sales are like Starbucks locations in Manhattan — around every corner. But since January, it's been easy to feel stuck in a thrifter's worst nightmare, a.k.a. the full-priced section. Thankfully, the sale gods are always keeping our wallets in mind and have strategically placed a quick round of discounts right at the end of this dark, sale- less tunnel. That's right, it's time for President's Day sales, a...

23 Turtleneck Dresses That Strike The Perfect Balance Between Cute & Cozy

Unpopular opinion: Turtlenecks are actually quite sexy. There's a tendency to pigeonhole the style by its functionality but, just because it envelopes you with warmth (thanks for that, trusty high-neck knit buddy!), doesn't automatically translate to prim modesty — especially when it comes in the form of a dress. Now, a popular opinion: Style doesn't have to be sacrificed for comfort. A turtleneck dress checks all the practical cold-weather style boxes while striking the perfect balance between...

7 Simple & Chic Hair Accessories That Actually Work For Grown-Ups

You're not alone if you think padded headbands and scrunchies feel... youthful to a fault. No matter how cute and trendy they look on the website, or Ariana Grande's head, there's something about the hair-accessory renaissance that's inherently retro — and not in the sort of way that works for an interview or date night.So, as a self-respecting adult, what do you do when you want to add just a little something to a mundane look that could benefit from some added decor? The answer: gold hair cli...

Cool Athletic Gear That Won't Set You Back

$50 on groceries. $121 on an unlimited MetroCard. $36 on an evening out. $40 for a monthly gym membership. And let's not even get started on how much we've spent on one too many late-night cab rides. That leaves approximately... not a lot for a cool, varied fitness wardrobe.We get it: Life's expensive and your athletic gear doesn't always take priority (no judgement on those leggings you've been sporting since 2011).

15 Sales To Shop In Case You've Been Sleeping On Your Gift List

If last minute shopping is on your mind, you've come to the right place. The end of the year tends to make our wallets feel much smaller and our spending habits that much more frugal.

Here's Further Proof That The Hadids Are Taking Over Our Closets

Gigi Hadid practically never leaves her house without a pair of oversized frames. And as we've seen with her penchant for Krewe, once the model finds an eyewear brand she likes, she reps it hard.

This Hamilton Star Has A Fashion Collab (& You'll Want Every Item)

Photo: Courtesy of Lou & Grey. For almost two years, Jasmine Cephas Jones played double-duty as the original Peggy Schuyler and Maria Reynolds in Hamilton. And while the former was an early joke among the musical's devoted fan base, the 27-year-old performer quickly proved she was way more than "... and Peggy." The Brooklyn native first wowed us with her vocals, then kept us obsessed with her chill personality and always-entertaining social media presence. She's the O.G. Schuyler sister we d...

The Gifts Hollywood's Biggest Beauty Pros Are Giving This Season

We imagine that getting a holiday present from the Kardashians would be pretty sweet. Maybe a car if we were Kylie's BFF, or Givenchy boots from Kim. But that's probably not in our future.

20 Ways To Do Athleisure In The Winter

This past year, athleisure became the name of practically everyone's clothing game. Regardless of where we were headed — from brunch and running errands to a coffee chat or volunteer event — it became pretty much impossible to convince us to not sport our favorite pair of colorblocked leggings or comfortable (but still chic) skort. We even tried wearing fitness gear for one entire month straight, and, well, let's just say we had people totally convinced that we were wearing "real" clothing and ...

Layering 101: The Essentials You Need To Bundle Up

Layering can either go very right, or very, very wrong. It's actually impressive what a fine line it is to walk — some pairings work wonders (with a lot of "Why didn't I think of that?" compliments), while others just look plain bulky. But, it all comes down to the pieces you're working with. Your layering essentials should be versatile enough to be worn at least three ways; warm without excess bulk; and of course, on-trend, too. It's never a great idea to wear a layer that's scuzzy, wrinkled, ...

30 Super-Cozy Items You Can Still Wear In Public

You'll quickly realize that most of the pieces you love to cozy up in aren't the most presentable. And since the last thing you want to hear is that low-key-shady, "You l...
