  Here at BUST, we’re not ones to pussyfoot around—we know a well-named clothing item when we see one. Witness the pussy bow, a scarf-like accessory that has been around since the 1940s and reached peak popularity in the 1980s, thanks to working gals everywhere. This pussy bow will take you no more than 30 minutes to create using a sewing machine, though you can also make it by hand. Best of all, it looks great with everything from a button-down shirt to a lacy dress....
   When taking a baby out of the house, many Victorian mothers first covered the baby’s face with a veil. These veils were believed to protect infants’ faces from extremes of weather, as well as from harmful pollutants which might mar their delicate skin or injure their eyes. By the 1870s and 1880s, baby veils had become so ubiquitous that sewing books, ladies’ magazines, and even etiquette manuals often included knitting or crochet patterns for them. As The Ladies’ Book of Etiquette and Manual of Politeness...
    Red carpet season is descending upon us fast — so get some champagne ready and prepare to hate-watch. This year, lots of actresses are planning something special, sources have reported to PEOPLE magazine: They’re going to wear black. It's not exactly revolutionary fashion-wise, but culture-wise it is. Multiple award presenters and nominees, like Meryl Streep and Emma Stone, are reportedly planning on wearing black to the Golden Globes, and possibly throughout this year's awards season. The women wearing black during the Golden Globes are doing so in...

Sustainable fashion brand Reformation just launched limited-edition pasta tees, and I’m predicting a new “cool-girl” staple. The limited-edition designs are printed on Reformation’s Joplin Tee, and are available in “Al Dente,” “Cacio e Pepe,” and “Spaghetti Pomodoro.” The best news? They're only $38 each (!). If you haven’t hopped on the graphic-tee trend, now is a great time to start. Pair with jeans, a vinyl skirt, or your favorite plaid suit and head on over to the closest Italian restaurant (sadly, the tees are carb-free). Haven’t...

  UK-based brand Missguided has just dropped their kickass new winter campaign called Make Your Mark. On the movement, Missguided's site explains, “As part of our new #KeepOnBeingYou campaign, we’re on a mission to inspire babes to love themselves, for themselves, to embrace your flaws, and to not strive for what the world perceives as perfection.” None of the pictures are retouched, and they show models as they really are: with blemishes, stretch marks, and scars. It would be great if it didn’t still feel so revolutionary to...
