9 Outfits That'll Make You Rethink Neutrals Being "Boring"

Like anyone, we love a good pop of colour every now and then, but—hear us out—all-neutral outfits can be incredibly chic. We also can't deny how simple they make getting dressed—which is sometimes why colourful dressing is deemed trickier. Sticking to a spectrum of cream, brown, and beige means you can mix and match with abandon because all these shades go together seamlessly.Still, worried that working in the absence of vibrant hues will make your minimalist outfits a little lackluster? Trust us when we say neutral-toned dressing is anything but boring. It just takes a jolt of inspiration to get the outfits right. Think about layering textures when testing out monochrome dressing, and you'll stand out but in a subtle way. To prove our point, we rounded up some of our favourite looks fr...

Irina Shayk's Latest Street Style Might Make You Rethink Your Stance on Low-Rise Jeans

As the very wise Sophie Turner once said, low-rise jeans are "kind of offensive," and I couldn't agree more. However, I will say, Irina Shayk's recent take on the nostalgic trend has my attention. In an outfit that looked straight from the 2000s, the model rocked a pair of extremely low-rise jeans and a sheer black corset top, creating a look so simple, yet so impactful. Irina, who recently returned from a trip to France with Kanye West, was spotted walking around New York City in said outfit, with her 4-year-old daughter Lea in tow. She accessorized with classic black shades, plain silver jewelry, and a white Burberry purse, and later in the day, added an oversized leather jacket. While Irina's denim is a little too low for my taste, you have to admit she put together a pretty perfect ...

29 Blunt Bobs That Are Making Me Completely Rethink Having Long Hair

Having a hairdresser for a mum has meant that I've done just about everything you can think of to my hair. I've been platinum blonde, mahogany brown and everything in-between. I've framed my face with feathering and had thick fringes cut in. I've had hair down to my waist and chopped to my chin. It's fair to say I was pretty earless with my tresses. That is until I got older.I don't know why, but for some reason, I've defaulted to long length hair in a creamy hue with lived-in roots. Now, though, after witnessing some impressive hair transformations on Instagram of late, I'm finally going to give my 'do a refresh. And the look I'm toying with is a blunt bob.The blunt bob has undergone a bit of a resurgence in 2019. A far cry from the dreaded bowl cut, instead, influencers and A-listers ...

The Checkered Pant Trend Is Making Us Rethink Our Wardrobe

I've never been a fan of trousers, but this checkered-print trend has me second guessing myself. Since I've been living in my sweatpants, I haven't been feeling particularly inspired to dress up or even think about wearing real pants. While I've been seeing the checkered print absolutely everywhere this year (shoutout to my fave KJ Plumb, who's created some of the most famous prints you've seen all over Instagram), I decided that it's time to cave. I particularly love that the quirky gingham print makes me feel nostalgic for early 2000s styles - which have their roots in the '50s and '60s - and a lot of the pants come in bold colors like neon green, cherry red, and baby blue. Most of the trousers also come in a wide-leg silhouette and feature a high-waist, making your legs look longer...

Short Curly Hairstyles That Will Make You Rethink Your Long Hair

In case you didn’t get the memo, when it comes to the latest hair trends, the shorter the cut the better. Lobs, bobs, and blunt cuts are seeing a lot of love lately — and it has seen many fashion influencers reaching for the scissors (or, you know, booking a hair appointment). For curly hair, the short-cut trend brings a lot of potential when it comes to revamping your style. A shorter length, cut above the chin, can give curly textures a lot of extra body and volume. The cut can be carefree and, if you fancy, give off “sexy bed head” but, as most curly-haired folks know, it can take some work to make your curls do as they’re told. Can short curly hair be low maintenance? It doesn't matter your curl pattern, density or face shape, whether loose waves or tight coils, short curly hair can...

8 Brands That Are Helping Us Rethink The Concept of Secondhand

In 2012, when I studied abroad at the University of Texas at Austin, I became somewhat obsessed with shopping secondhand. During the time that I probably should have spent in the library, my friends and I would trawl through the city's unique thrift stores, tracking down and trying on the best items we could find. Whether it was a 1980s-style Christian Dior purple power suit complete with covered buttons and padded shoulders, or simply a floral cotton dress that looked like it belonged on the set of Dawson's Creek, we were always elated with our diamond in the rough finds. While I am embarrassed to admit it, at the time my secondhand shopping habit had very little to do with sustainability or the environment and much more to do with budget and perceived cool-factor. Of course, now I kno...

10 Influencer-Approved Skirts That Might Make You Rethink Your Love of Dresses

While some may say summer is the season of the dress, I personally define myself as a skirt enthusiast. Endlessly versatile, skirts are an item that can be elevated enough for just about any occasion and also dressed down for more casual affairs. As an example, the checked slip skirt I wore to a wedding alongside a slinky silk cami last year is now the same skirt I wear to picnics on weekends alongside a plain white tee and Stan Smith sneakers. To further prove my point that skirts are in fact, an unsung wardrobe hero, I've taken the liberty of tracking down a few summery iterations that come with influencer-approval. From buzzy brands like Ganni, Sir and Musier Paris to high-street favourites like H&M and ASOS, this season we've seen a plethora of chic skirts spanning mini, midis a...
