The Cruel Summer Cast Talks Thrifting, '90s Grunge, and Kate Wallis's Blue Furry Handbag

Freeform's latest psychological thriller Cruel Summer, produced by Jessica Biel, was filmed in Dallas, TX and takes place over the course of three consecutive years in the '90s. Starring Olivia Holt (Kate Wallis), Chiara Aurelia (Jeanette Turner), Harley Quinn Smith (Mallory Higgins), and Allius Barnes (Vince Fuller), the cast is stacked with talent and all of the actors share a deep understanding of who their characters are. They worked with costume designer Taneia Lednicky (who also assisted on Friday Night Lights, while we're talking high school storylines), to convey their personal evolutions from 1993 to 1995. The way these four kids process these trying, tumultuous years becomes so obvious through what they're choosing to wear - and the objects they leave to collect dust. We talk...

Honestly, These 12 Affordable Handbag Brands Look Like Luxury

Be it Bottega Veneta, Chloé, Hermès, The Row or Chanel, we spend a good amount of our time swooning over designer handbags. While our arm-candy allowance isn't quite what we'd like it to be, we never feel that we're missing out, mainly because there are so many affordable handbag brands that are creating bags just as covetable as those with four-figure price tags. Still, the word "affordable" is hard to pinpoint. For one person, it might be £30 spent on the high-street. For another, it could be an excellent charity shop find that rings in at £5. And, for some, it could be something as high as £300. We think, however, for something such as a bag to be deemed affordable, it all comes down to how much you'll actually use it. Aimee Song with a Charles & Keith handbag. For example, a £40...

Yes, We're Still Talking About Guess's Telfar Handbag Knockoff, Because It Was So Wrong

In 2020, Telfar bags were - and still are - the hottest thing since sliced bread. If you didn't have one, you were on the constant hunt for one, and if you already had a couple, you were still trying to secure more of the iconic vegan leather shopping bags. This buying frenzy meant that the bag was being worn by It girls, celebrities, regular working girls (like myself) - and even Real Housewives of New York star Sonja Morgan who went a full season wearing the shopping bag as if she was being sponsored (she wasn't). This is Telfar's impact. This is why what Guess did to the beloved brand feels so wrong and so deeply personal for its customers. "When I wear my Telly and see others in the streets wearing theirs, I feel like I'm a member of an exclusive club of people who are really pass...

The Most Important Handbag Trends of Spring 2021

Sifting through all the glorious newness that the spring and summer runways brought us not too long ago felt like such a breath of fresh air (especially compared to the stuffiness of the same boring sweat outfit I have been wearing on repeat since, oh, I don't know, March last year?). So far, we've reported on the biggest spring trends overall, the biggest accessories trends, and the biggest shoe trends, and today, we're here to hone in a bit tighter and share with you the most important handbag trends of 2021.At this point, who really knows how often we will be relying on our handbags as much as we used to? But if I know you all like I think I do, it's safe to assume that no matter what the new norm ends up being, buying cute accessories will always sound like a good idea. With that sa...

I Can't Wait to Carry a Really Nice Handbag Again—These Are My Favourites

For over a year now, I've either shoved my phone and mask into a pocket or carried the very same boring black crossbody bag whenever I leave the house. I've occasionally had to schlep about with a rucksack full of baby toys/snacks/essentials, but aside from that, my handbag collection is gathering dust and feeling rather sorry for itself. I think the fact that the V&A's spectacular handbag exhibition was open for a total of two whole days last year says it all: This once-prized area of our wardrobes has been, understandably, very neglected.Although handbag searches notably decreased on Google Trends in 2020 compared to the previous four years, in some more affluent corners of the fashion landscape, luxury handbag sales have been booming. Many consumers who would have normally spent ...

Kendall Jenner's Patchwork Beaded Handbag Is Making Us Believe Its 2005

Kendall Jenner's latest outfits are a blast from the past. After wearing a '70s-inspired Mango striped sweater vest that costs $50, the supermodel was seen in New York City again carrying a supernostalgic accessory. Kendall was spotted running errands wearing a white cropped thermal from Eterne ($115) with high-waisted jeans. She threw a long denim duster and carried a Staud beaded bag that took us straight back to the early 2000s. The patchwork bag reminded us of a time when beads reigned supreme. If you're hoping to snag Kenny's exact handbag, you're in luck. The bag is available for $250 and comes in a variety of patterns. Kendall finished her look off with a pair of black loafers, small sunglasses, and a face mask that came with a colorful beaded chain. Keep reading to get a closer ...
