Get Ready to See These New Street Style Trends Everywhere in 2023

If there’s one way to get a read on what we’ll actually be wearing next season, it’s by examining the street style trends of the previous fashion month. Yes, what comes down the runways is always important, but often, it’s what happens outside the shows that carries even more influence, especially in our day-to-day wardrobes. There’s just something about seeing real people styling trends for real life (okay, fashion week) that makes them seem much easier to re-create. The street style set—whether it’s editors, influencers, buyers or celebrities—have, for a while now, been masters of both following and setting trends. And although some looks can still be a little out there (any of the Loewe S/S 23 collection is a case in point), the ma...

Watch Travis Pastrana Go Berserk in Hoonigan’s 862HP Subaru Wagon

Hoonigan is back with a new episode of Ken Block‘s Gymkhana, a viral video series that sees outrageous tuned-up cars turn the world into a playground. Following a video of Block driving an entirely bespoke Audi S1 HOONITRON in Las Vegas, the team now heads to Fort Lauderdale, Florida with its custom 862-hp Subaru GL Wagon. With American stunt driver and X Games gold medalist Travis Pastrana at the wheel, the Gymkhana 2022 video may be the wildest one yet as the wagon weaves its way around the coastal city — encountering fighter jets, monster trucks, YouTuber Cleetus McFarland’s 3000-hp Chevy El Camino, and more along the way. Take a look at the full 10-minute video above in which Pastrana does the unimaginable, from 50-50 grinding the car to cross-bridge jumps over a helicopter...

Apple’s Rumored Electric Vehicle Reportedly Not Fully Self-Driving

Apple is not quite ready to throw in the towel for its rumored electric vehicle. However, according to Bloomberg, the tech giant is scaling back on its Apple Car production, reportedly no longer fully autonomous for its initial debut. The debut has also been pushed back to 2026. The EV production, codenamed Project Titan, will reportedly feature a conventional wheel and pedals and that the self-driving component will only be available on highways. Apple has yet to reveal any sort of concept rendering for the car. The rumored EV was supposedly set to offer full autonomous driving so passengers can watch videos or even pay gams while on the highway. It was meant to ask the driver to take control when it was time to drive and navigate city streets or through adverse weather. Insiders have not...

Introducing McLaren Applied’s Lavoie Series 1 Electric Scooter

Earlier this week, Mclaren‘s McLaren Applied unveiled a new electric scooter via its subsidiary, Lavoie, entitled Lavoie Series 1. Composed of automotive-grade magnesium and weighing around 16.5kg, the e-scooter is equipped with a patented one-touch Flowfold system. Between charges, the battery can power up to 31 miles of range from merely two hours of charging via its domestic three-pin plug. Another highlighted feature includes a lighting system featuring rear lights to illuminate the rider, while deck-mounted floodlights are configured on the front to ensure road visibility. The scooter is paired with a smartphone app that includes navigation tools, in-depth stats, and customization, while also allowing owners to track and locate the vehicle remotely.

Meghan Markle’s Date-Night Dress Isn’t Just Beautiful—It’s Loaded With Meaning

It would, however, be remiss of me not to mention that this is the first red carpet appearance the couple have made since the trailer of their new Netflix documentary, Harry & Meghan, was released, and with that comes the understanding that all eyes would be on them even more so than usual. We all know that Meghan Markle dresses with purpose; that every item she chooses to wear tells a unique story, so why would this night be any different? While the colour white features regularly Markle’s wardrobe—she’s a classicist at heart—choosing to wear it now could be symbolic. We all know the impact that colours can have on our moods and well-being; individual people will gravitate towards specific shades when, say, they want to feel empowered in a work meeting. In chromo...

I’ve Done The Research—These Are The PJs You Can Wear All Day This Christmas

Ah, Christmas. Is there any other time of year when spending all day in your PJs is socially acceptable? It’s the most wonderful time of the year, after all. If that sounds like something you’re very much planning on doing, then you know your PJs need to be a bit special. I’m not saying you need to have a drawer full of neatly folded, starch-pressed matching pyjama tops and bottoms, but a decent pair that’ll last you all winter is a good idea. Now, there is a range of different prices and some people are more than happy to spend a couple of hundred on this item of clothing. However, for those who are looking for something more budget-friendly, there are chic options on the high street too. In terms of style, right now, classic shirts and matching trousers are everyw...

I’ve Found 38 Unique Gifts From the Coolest Independent Brands

Cathleen Nicol, founder of handbag brand C.Nicol, said last year to Who What Wear, “If people in the UK are considering making a purchase for themselves or for a gift for someone and prefer not to visit stores, I would encourage them to seek out UK independent brands that sell online and can deliver directly to them. More established brands are already acting fast and upping their digital strategies and budgets to reach customers, but for some smaller brands without teams and moveable budgets, it isn’t always possible to do this quickly.” Luckily, if you’re unable to head to a shop before Christmas, you can shop plenty of small brands online via sites like Wolf & Badger and Trouva, which stock hundreds of under-the-radar labels and boutiques. If you want to shop ...

All of Our Editors Would Like a Pair of These Classic Boots for Christmas

I’m a self-confessed footwear fanatic—nothing makes me happier than unboxing a fresh pair. I don’t discriminate, either. Everything from fancy party heels to the most sensible of stompy boots is welcome in my wardrobe. In fact, the latter is becoming an increasingly important category in my footwear repertoire, and no one does it better than Dr. Martens. The brand is never far from the hearts and minds of the style conscious as its heritage styles are nothing short of iconic, and with both fresh iterations and old favourites coming to the fore, the brand has been enjoying something of an ongoing renaissance over the past few years. The collective desire for comfortable, long-lasting, easy pieces to throw on every day of the week—shoes included—puts it ahead of the competition. ...
