It’s Time To Give The High-Cut Bathing Suit A Go

If you've stumbled across a photo (as in, an actual hard-copy photo) of your mother or grandmother at the beach decades ago, they're likely wearing a high-cut swimsuit. Along with power shoulders and tiny sunglasses returning from the '80s and '90s is a throwback swim trend: The high-cut one-piece, originally pioneered by designers like Norma Kamali and more recently popularized by brands like Sidway and Mara Hoffman, is one of the most ubiquitous styles this summer. Of co...

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Starts Starts August 2020 With An Early Preview July 24th for All

Guess what? The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts in August and has an early preview coming July 24th for everyone! Typically the sale happens in July but as per an earlier post I did back in April I did mention that Nordstrom might postpone the Anniversary Sale and that’s exactly what they did as it’s happening nearly a month after the traditional date! And I’m ok with that! Don’t get me wrong I love shopping the sale as much as everyone else but I’m not always ready for Fall Fashion and Makeu...

Keep These Sustainable Brands In Mind When Shopping On Earth Day (And Every Day After)

Here in the Shopping department, our jobs are to find, test, and buy the best stuff so that our readers can make informed purchase decisions and find the things they want and need.

You Do Not Want To Miss Anthropologie's Spring Clothing Sale

When the words 'Anthropologie' and 'sale' come together in the same sentence, it's commonplace to immediately think about all the primo home goods you can snag for half price. But what many of us forget is that Anthropologie has a lot more than just ceramic mugs and duvets. Over the last few years, we've seen the multi-faceted retailer evolve from our go-to for boho maxi dresses and sailor jeans to a serious fashion destination. Between adding a collection of extended sizes and offering up belo...

Maximize Your Tax Return With R29's Editors' Weekly Sale Picks

When you’ve got a shopping habit like ours — make that a shopping job — you find yourself saving more pieces to a wish list that seems to know no limits. And while we’ll certainly pay full price for the goods we really want (see our series The Sell-Out for the things that cannot be slept on), the siren call of a short-lived sale paired with clearance tab treasure hunting is what really gets our blood pumping here on the R29 Shopping Team.We see so much good stuff on sale, in fact; that we just ...

No Matter Where Your Spring Vacation Takes You, Here's Everything You Need To Pack

Fact: we're all overdue for a good vacation. Between last minute deadlines, midterm exams and everything else that's taking up space in our date books, it can be tricky to find the time to plan a trip, let alone actually follow through with one. But once your vacation days are approved and your travel plans are finally booked, there's still one last hurtle to clear — and it's a big one: packing. If you thought finding a flight + hotel package that wouldn't drain your savings was hard, just wait...

Aidy Bryant's Shrill Looks Had To Be Custom-Made Because Plus Fashion Is A "Dead Zone"

Aidy Bryant’s wardrobe in the new Hulu series Shrill is full of fun, feminine, and bright pieces — that you won’t find anywhere online.“Almost everything I wear they made from scratch,” Bryant said during a recent talk with Charlotte Zoller, senior social media strategist at plus-size fashion brand Eloquii.The talk was captured on Bryant’s Instagram stories, and she pointed out that the above-the-knee sequin show-stopping dress from episode 3 and another red frock from the show are among the cu...

20 Wedding Guest Dresses You Can Wear Again & Again

We never thought we'd be relieved to not be asked to join a wedding party. But once we've been and there done that, not having to shell out major cash for a bridesmaid dress that we'd lie and say we'll wear again is one of life's small pleasure. But not having a set outfit comes with its own obstacles: the delicate balance of working your look while not outshining the bride, and answering questions like, "What's the dress code?" and "Who can tell me what the hell dressy casual means?"There's al...

The Golden Rules of Minimalist Fashion, According to This Stylish College Girl

Minimalism is SO in. Here's how to make it work for you, according to one of the most fashionable students at UM.Whenever I spot my friend Delaney on campus at the University of Miami, I always think to myself, “This girl really understands the ins and outs of style.” In a time where trends change week by week, it is rare to find someone who values a sustainable closet and shops clothes that will last, not just end up in the back of the closet. Delaney dresses in a very minimalistic style with n...

Start Studying Up On This Year's Best Black Friday Fashion Sales

The wait is finally over - America's favorite unofficial holiday has finally landed. The Friday after Thanksgiving never fails to see thousands of people in their Turkey induced comas lining outside of store fronts at 5 a.m., fingers furiously typing in credit card numbers, and bank accounts slowly depleting as retailers announce their mega mark-ups for the national sale day. Seasoned sale shoppers can expect this year to be no different.If there's one thing we've learned over the years, it's t...

This 30-Day Arm Workout Challenge Will Transform Your Upper Body

Photographed by Danny Kim. “I have, like, no arm strength.” If you’ve ever said this (or even thought it while lugging your heavy tote bag), this is the challenge for you. “Women are often very critical about their arms,” says personal trainer and fitness expert Angelique Millis. “But, then they’re surprised at how quickly they respond once they start using weights.” By integrating resistance training into your fitness routine, you improve your posture, coordination, stability, and of cours...

Over 70 Curve Models Walked At New York Fashion Week

It still seems like diversity is constantly out of reach for certain designers. Last February, The Fashion Spot found plus-size models made just 27 appearances on eight runways during New York Fashion Week. The number wasn't as high as the previous season, which saw over 200 curve and plus-size models walk. While Torrid and Addition Elle, two plus-specific brands, skewed the September 2017 results, labels like Christian Siriano and Chromat led the charge when it came to body diversity and inclu...

These Natural Hair Moments From NYFW Are Worthy Of The Prayer Hands Emoji

Once upon a time, pin-straight hair dominated Fashion Week. The models with natural hair either got blowouts or wore silky sew-ins for the week. But those days are fading. Natural hair looks are slowly, but surely, becoming the norm on the catwalk — and it's about damn time, isn’t it?For Spring/Summer 2019, the designers really embraced natural hair, showing a range of braids and wash-and-go curls. Some models rocked the texture they were born with without much styling, and others got teased-ou...

The Red Lipsticks Everyone Will Be Wearing This Fall

We knew Julie Andrews was right the moment we heard her sing about her favorite things in The Sounds Of Music. Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens really are the best, but as we grew older, we realized there's something we'd like to add to that mood-boosting, feel good list: red lipstick.The lippie shade never goes out of style, but not all crimson colors are created equal. The finish, undertone, and opacity make for totally different looks, so where can you find your new favorite red li...

Normal Cover-Ups Are So 2000 & Late

Beach dresses rightfully sit in their own category because the right beach dress should involve as little effort as going to the beach itself. As long as it checks off the boxes for functionality, is easy to take on and off, and possesses a whimsical air that says, " Yeah, I'm on vacation," you're covered.But, if you're a little stuck with where to look beyond the typical caftans and cover-ups, opting for a silhouette you regularly wear anyway — like a wrap dress (hello, easy swimsuit access) o...

What To Wear When It's Too Hot To Wear Anything

You know those hot, humid days when you open the door to leave your apartment and feel like you've walked into a city-sized steam room? When that happens, it's basically impossible not to immediately regret any piece of clothing I've decided to wear. If the chances of becoming the next viral video star were lower, I would just rip off my clothes and continue on my way in the nude.Unfortunately, that scenario is just begging to go viral, so it really isn't an option.
