Trust Me, These Mid-Length Styles Look Incredible With Thick Hair

In my humble opinion, mid-length hair is the most versatile hair length. You can do absolutely any style with no strands left behind, unless of course you are leaving out tendrils on purpose. I also happen to think that thick hair is the most versatile texture— but this is without doubt with the bias of having naturally super-thick hair myself. So, the combo of both is kind of spectacular in my eyes. Do not get me wrong, I have spent years cursing the fact that my hair has broken multiple stylists’ combs and takes a long time to straighten, but now with acceptance I know it also means that there aren’t many problems with any style I attempt. I do find that I get stuck in a real rut when thinking of styles though. On lazy weeks I just rotate two; down and un-s...

My Friends Hate This Shoe Trend, But I Wear It All the Time

Socks and sandals aren’t really one of those combos you can quietly dip your toe into. You’re either committing to it or you’re not—you can’t just wear it a bit like a sheer sleeve on a blouse or a touch of leopard print on a bag. It’s quite the divisive dressing choice. I happen to wear this combination often, most frequently a pair of Alexa Chung x JuJu’s Embellished Jelly sandals and a ribbed-knit sock, and my friends hate it because they say it looks “ugly” and like I’ve “just thrown on the first shoes at the front door.” I have to insist that it really is fashion, despite the eye rolls I get in return.

I’m Sad Too, But These 9 Autumn Trends Are Officially on Their Way Out

As much as I’d like to keep every single item I’ve ever owned for the rest of my days, my life in New York City simply doesn’t allow for it. I have, at best, 500 square feet to work with, and while clothes, shoes, and bags take up 99% of my thoughts every day, I don’t particularly want them to own that much space in my apartment too. So, to compensate, I have to cycle out my wardrobe—minus basics, of course—a lot. And with fall fast approaching, I’m gearing up for yet another refresh. Luckily, this autumn’s trend selection is shockingly good, so coming up with pieces to get rid of in order to make room for it wasn’t all that difficult. But still, waving goodbye to trends that have served you well for months or even years is...

Beauty Editors Don’t Want Me to Tell You About Their Secret Serum—But Here It Is

If I were to count on my hands the number of beauty editors I know (myself included) who rely on Marshall’s expert help, I’d run out of hands. Her no-BS approach to skincare is truly what keeps us going back. Let me first start by saying the Marshall spends all day every day working with skin; she sees people’s concerns and puts them on skincare routines that truly really make a difference. Marshall spends a long time trying to get to grips with your complexion, your lifestyle and, importantly, your skincare routine. Second, one of her biggest attributes is that she isn’t affiliated with any brands (finding experts who aren’t is very difficult), meaning she’s not going to flog you product just because she’s paid to. Above all, though...

8 French Outfits We Plan on Re-Creating for Autumn

There’s no doubt about it: French fashion types know how to do autumn style. Yes, here in the UK, we’re no strangers to the odd layering trick or two. However, Gallic girls have managed to perfect the art of staying warm without being encumbered by lumpy layers. For influencers such as Slip Into Style’s Ellie and Anne Laure Mais, knitwear is key, and luckily, this season has plenty to offer in this area with everything from skirts to dresses and, of course, sweaters, rendered in fine knit. We’re also seeing some excellent accessory action from the Parisians, with chunky knee boots proving to be the footwear of note this autumn. Scroll down to see the French-girl autumn outfits we can’t get enough of this year. Plus, shop any pieces you...

Tyrrell Winston Presents ‘Tiger Stripes’ at Cranbrook Art Museum

Tyrrell Winston has been quietly perfecting his game. Well-known for his gridded assemblages made of found basketballs, the Detroit-based artist has ventured across a number of new studies, including collectible editions, large-scale paintings, along with a custom Reebok Question Mid and Club C 85. Following his Hail Mary solo exhibition at Library Street Collective, Winston concurrently is showcasing his first museum solo show at Cranbrook Art Museum in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. “I’ve been a lifelong sports fan, but when I started making art, seriously, I never really envisioned that I would treat sport as a medium,” said Winston in an interview. The latest show, Tiger Stripes, takes its name from the fact that every tiger has its own unique set of stripes, which for the artist, has bee...

I Have Wide Feet, So I Always Avoid These Shoe Styles

You may not suffer with the same flat footedness, but if you landed on this article, it’s highly likely you do have wide feet and feel under-served by the current wide-fit options available—many of which appear to be quite cheap-looking (what is it with fake patent leather and wide-fit shoes?) or completely outmoded. I will feature some of the stronger options below, but I’m also here to give some pointers on general silhouettes, trends and finishes to look out for. Some are very obvious like pointed toes are an instant red flag and I’m sure that even people with slimmer feet struggle with a pointed-toe style with a very high heel—the pressure this puts on your toes is not worth any amount of trending credentials, in my opinion. We only get one pair of feet and they carry us through life, ...

I’m a 54-Year-Old Stylist, and I Think These Accessories Will Enhance Your Look

A solid look is often not complete without the perfect accessories. While everyone certainly defines “perfect” differently based on personal style, Roz Kaur thinks a few key accessories can really help take a wardrobe to the next level. You may be already familiar with Kaur, the 54-year-old stylist who has an Instagram feed filled with some of the most inspiring looks. Age clearly has nothing to do with what you should or shouldn’t wear, but her more experienced fashion point of view is just always so intriguing. On that note, she recently shared with us the items in her wardrobe that she truly cherishes and offered her insights on those extra details that she thinks will add even more style to your look. Below, you’ll uncover more intel from Kaur on ...

Chunky Loafers Can be Hard to Style—These 8 Pieces Always Work With Them

The trouble is, chunky loafers with their masculine vibe and heavy appearance can actually be quite hard to style. Jeans are one of our most-worn items, and the obvious choice to wear with easy slip on shoes, but even then you need to be careful with the shape and length of the denim. Your best bet, in a stylist’s opinion (that’s me), is to keep it classic— a tonal colour palette and pared-back basics will always look best. Think black jeans and camel coats. Worried about them feeling too clunky? Pair with a mini or midi skirt for balance. Prefer to lean into the androgyny? Pair with a cargo pant for an extremely 2022 vibe.  Keep scrolling, and you’ll find eight examples of easy outfits you can wear with your chunky loafers, and the specific pieces we find always work with them. Most ...

Porsche Has Turned Sally From ‘Cars’ Into a Real 911 Carrera GTS

Sally Carrera made her debut in Pixar‘s hit film Cars in 2006, capturing the hearts of children and petrolheads alike with her charm and wit that gave the Porsche a friendly face for us all to know. Now, Porsche has turned the character into a real object, debuting the one-off Porsche 911 “Sally Special.” Based on the Carrera GTS, the car comes with a manual gearbox to not only heighten the driving experience but to also reference Sally’s love for being on the road. It’s painted in a hand-applied, multi-dimensional “Sallybluemetallic” colorway, existing as the only car to ever feature this hue, while Sally’s tattoo sits underneath the retractable aero wing at the rear. Twisted Turbo-like rims from the film are directly translated onto the rea...

I Already Know These 5 Mango Buys Will Be Best Sellers This Autumn

It helps that Mango has just dropped an epic new collection, and the first which hints at those cooler temperatures. It has a mostly western vibe (always one of my favourite autumn trends, and set to be huge for A/W 2022 in particular), and although there are so many great pieces, I’ve pinpointed five in particular that really stand out. From a fringed jacket I’ve seen all over Instagram already, to a pair of embellished slingbacks you may well find familiar— these are items that, from experience, I can basically guarantee will sell out. I plan on styling them all up now with more summery pieces, and then layering them up throughout the whole of autumn and winter.  Keep scrolling to see my top five buys from Mango right now… You Deserve to Make Money Even When you are looking for...
