Is there anything greater than a gusseted crotch? The diamond-shaped fabric panel can mean the difference between bunchy constriction and the ability to stretch and squat without awkward pinches you-know-where. That feeling of freedom is sewn into every product from Dovetail Workwear, an innovative company selling apparel made by and for women—specifically cofounders Kate Day, Kyle Marie Begley, and Sara DeLuca—in Portland, OR. Whether you herd cattle, weld fences, pour concrete, or just appreciate the workwear look, Dovetail garments are the rugged-yet-tailored options long denied...
If you want further proof that women are damned if we do and damned if we don’t when it comes to fashion, look no further than the maxi coat of 1969. Women were on the tail end of a decade-long joke that focused on their mini skirts. “Mini Skirts Receive Minimum Acceptance,” “Mini Skirt Shiverers Truly Knock-Kneed,” “Leg-islators Find Short Skirts No Mini-Controversy” headlines had ribbed. But when the maxi coat was introduced—thanks to designers like Marc Bohan of Dior who were inspired by the...
Tayler Gutierrez dreams in beads. The 24-year-old Cherokee and Scandinavian designer then manifests these visions as pieces for ‘Kamama Beadwork (@kamamabeadwork), her line of intricately embellished flat-brimmed hats and earrings, made using the techniques of her ancestors. After growing up outside the Upper Skagit Reservation in Washington, Gutierrez moved to Salt Lake City, UT, working as a cultural interpreter for the Native American section of This Is The Place Heritage Park. That’s where she met her mentor, Diné (Navajo) poet Tacey Atsitty, who first taught her...
As we reintroduce ourselves to the forgotten concepts of having plans, going places, and doing things in the coming months, we may be coaxed to reluctantly emerge from our loungewear cocoons. While it may be nice to have excuses to leave the house and truly get dressed once again, some of us may not be so enticed by the idea of sacrificing comfort and ease in order to do so. Instead of rushing out to buy a new wardrobe, consider doing the opposite by creating...
Many plus size women and femmes can surely relate to the disenchanting experience of in-store clothes shopping. The non-inclusive sizing and lackluster selection almost never yield that cute cocktail dress or comfy jumpsuit you’ve been visualizing for weeks. This too was Nina Parker’s lifelong shopping experience; however, with the proper resources, Parker has set out to change the plus-size fashion game in a major way.  Nina Parker–longtime journalist, television host, and all-around media personality known for designing some of her own iconic red carpet looks–has recently...
When San Francisco–based writer Valerie Luu and photographer Andria Lo met in 2009, they bonded over their love of the bold and thrifty style of the city’s Asian seniors—a vibe they dubbed “Chinatown pretty.” The looks, like a couple in matching bright yellow sweatsuits or a seamstress who transformed remnants into red-piped velvet pants, inspired a photo project for the nonprofit Chinatown Community Development Center that’s now a part-fashion, part-interview book called Chinatown Pretty (@chinatownpretty).  The duo spent six years conducting street-style shoots with 100 pòh...
In our Fashion Nation series, we talk to people about personal style. Marisol MuroIllustrator, Marisoland.comLos Angeles, CA Walk me through this outfit.I found the butterfly caftan while I was thrifting in L.A. I love bold colors and prints and I like to make a coordinating accessory. I made that butterfly ring out of felt and wire—like a butterfly hopped off my dress and landed on my finger. The shoes are ’60s strappy shoes. I love to collect any kind of Mary Jane. Lately, I’ve been very into...

All over the country, vintage and antiques stores are being raided for the season’s most sought after fashion item: quilts. No longer relegated to dusty hope chests hiding in the attic, quilts are being remade as wearable pieces including jackets, dresses, and pants—they’re thoughtful, sustainable, and, frankly, very pretty. And it’s the right trend for these unprecedented times, when the pandemic has shifted our fashion priorities: clothes not only have to be physically comfortable, but emotionally as well. If you’re anything like me, that means...
