It's Here: The #1 Swimsuit Trend of the Year

Summer holidays might not look how we'd like them to this year, but it doesn't mean we can't dust off our swimsuits and get ready for the warmer weather that lies ahead. Now, before you get too excited and end up spending all your money on the first cute swimsuit you see, let me share with you one of the only swimsuit trends I think you need to know this season: retro florals. I am officially convinced that if you're going to be seen in one swimsuit trend this summer, make it retro florals.Retro florals entail any floral print that looks like it came straight out of the '60s, '70s, or '80s. The nostalgia these funky prints bring is what makes this swim trend feel fresh and different compared to your average floral-printed suit. To further sell you on this trend (in case my championing o...

The Essential Sandal Trend Every Fashion Person Will Wear This Year

We may have only had, like, three days of a heatwave recently, but as soon as the sun came out all we could think about was shedding our boots and trainers for bare ankles. Anyone else? Sandal season is finally upon us and we couldn’t be happier about it. A great pair can be the perfect gateway into spring/summer dressing— even swapping them into your favourite jeans and jumper look now can make your existing wardrobe feel instantly refreshed. We don’t discriminate on sandal styles here (classic tan, lace-up, mules... we’ll take them all) but it is fast becoming clear that one trend is going to rule them all for 2021, and that’s chunky ones. From velcro dad sandals, to fisherman caged styles and flatform flip-flops, we still can’t get enough of them (this is the third year running they’...

Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber (née Baldwin) surprised fans with their whirlwind engagement and subsequent marriage in 2018 — and now, the musician is admitting that everything wasn’t as perfect as it seemed. Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin's Relationship Timeline Read article “The first year of marriage was really tough because there was a lot going back to the trauma. There was just a lack of trust,” Justin, 27, revealed in his GQ cover story, published on Tuesday, April 13. “There was all these things that you don’t want to admit to the person that you’re with, because it’s scary.

The BAFTAs 2021 red carpet was a bit different this year

Awards season is a bit different this year, due to the ongoing pandemic, but London played host nonetheless to the EE British Academy Film Awards last night. And although the guest list was much reduced due to Covid restrictions, the BAFTAs 2021 red carpet did not disappoint. Last year, the BAFTAs introduced a sustainable dress code, but this year was a little different, with celebrities wearing a mix of custom designer looks as well as straight-off-the-runway gowns. US celebrities couldn’t make it to the show, but they didn’t let that little fact cramp their style, with the likes of Renée Zellweger and Anna Kendrick wearing fabulous sequin and metallic gowns at home, by Giorgio Armani and Zuhair Murad respectively. Over in the UK, the attending celebrities included Bridgert...

Is the Met Gala Happening This Year? Here's What We Know

While last year's Met Gala was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, it seems like there may be hope for a 2021 event. On April 8, Page Six first reported the biggest fashion party of the year was indeed happening this year, citing an insider source. The insider reportedly revealed the Met Gala will take place on Sept. 13, though the event has traditionally always been scheduled for the first Monday in May, and added that Vogue is considering tapping poet Amanda Gorman and Tom Ford for hosting duties. However, in a statement shared to POPSUGAR, a source from the Costume Institute said, "We have not yet announced the next Costume Institute exhibition or gala." Though it looks like plans for this year's Met Gala have yet to be confirmed, here's hoping there's truth to the rumors. We...

I'm Obsessed With Double Denim—Here's How I'm Wearing it This Year

As someone who has always chosen heeled boots over sneakers and crew-neck knits over hoodies, double denim hasn't historically been part of my wardrobe repertoire. Like all good millennials, I dabbled with the pairing back in my teenage years, but that is firmly where it has remained—a relic of bad fashion choices past.But something has shifted over the last year: I've found myself double-tapping a growing number of double-denim outfits on Instagram. I've been drawn in by their Parisian-inspired nonchalance and low-maintenance appeal. Yet, these are not the skintight ensembles of yore, but an altogether a more grown-up and polished breed. Less Justin and Britney circa 2001, more off-duty It girl.I have consequently spent the last week or two in a bookmarking frenzy—determined to find a ...

Last Year, H&M Sold Thousands of This Dress, But 2021's Version Is Even Better

Fun fact: Who What Wear UK's top-selling item from 2020 was a dress, but not only that—it was a dress from high-street fave H&M. Coming in a pop of pastel pink and featuring puffed sleeves and a loose, smock-like fit, this staple sold out every time it was restocked, and we couldn't take a walk around the park without seeing someone wearing this fabulous frock. Well, if you missed out last year, it's time to sit up because we just found 2021's answer to that pinkdress, and it's even better than we'd hoped. Though in spirit it has the same throw-on-and-go appeal, the pink dress 2.0 features some marked differences: First, the hue is deeper, less pastel and more fuchsia. Second, the smocking has been dropped and replaced with expensive-looking ruched detailing around the neckline and ...
