When Agnes Woodward created the rainbow ribbon skirt that Deb Haaland wore at her ceremonial swearing-in as the first Indigenous American U.S. Secretary of the Interior in March, she didn’t tell anybody. “Only because I had a hard time believing it was real,” the self-taught Plains Cree seamstress says. The traditional skirt was a fast turnaround, sewn start to finish in about six hours. It wasn’t until she saw footage from her home in North Dakota—of Haaland lacing up her moccasins while wearing the skirt—that...
Craving individuality, sustainability, and creativity, intrepid sartorialists are taking their sewing projects to Instagram, serving homemade looks you could only dream of finding in stores. Whether they’re dusting off their childhood Singers or threading brand new Berninas, these stylish creators are making great things happen with fabric and sharing the details—from pattern numbers and modification tips to specific fabric choices and body measurements—so you can, too. Here are some of our favorite sewists (a new term that combines the words “sew” and “artist”) to follow,...
   Old Navy is on a quest to revolutionize shopping for curvy women everywhere, with the launch of its new BODEQUALITY initiative. Committed to a “democracy of style”, the store will no longer have a separate line for plus size clothing but will be selling all styles in a wider size range (00-30) in the same sections, and, most importantly, larger sizes will no longer cost more.   Old Navy was one of the major brands criticised back in 2019 for cost disparity when it came to plus...
When it comes to Southern lady movies, there’s no question that Fried Green Tomatoes reigns supreme. At the heart of the 1991 film are two women: spitfire Idgie (Mary Stuart Masterson) and quiet Ruth (Mary-Louise Parker), whose love for each other gives them the strength to tackle life’s obstacles—including but not limited to bigotry, sexism, racism, etc.—in Depression-era Alabama. Not only is the arc of their relationship a heartwarming love story we can all aspire to, but their 1930s wardrobes are also truly enviable. From...
In our Fashion Nation series, we talk to people about personal style. Jessica Torres content creator @thisisjessicatorres Bronx, New York Walk me through this outfit. I’ve been obsessed with this brand Wray, who made the dress. I found the green scarf on Amazon—I wanted an all-vintage vibe. The sunglasses are  from Poppy Lissiman and I got the shoes from ASOS. The white bag from Anthropologie is a cool way to tie it all together. It’s hard to shop completely from small, ethical, indie brands, but I try to incorporate them as...
 “I just want to formally and publicly say that I have stopped using ‘midsize’ hashtags on my posts and stopped describing myself that way in my videos,” announced Tiktok influencer Mary Skinner, a size 10 in women’s clothing and who first gained popularity on the app for her body inclusive, fashion-forward videos, in early May. The term, she realized, is not for her as she learned by listening to the discourse on Tiktok and other corners of the internet. She apologized for “inserting myself into...
Chevron-patterned sundresses. Disney adults. Small white dogs. Excessive use of the crying-laughing emoji. Seasonal house decor. You know the aesthetic. It’s not basic bitch, it’s not millennial, it’s not Christian girl autumn. It’s cheugy.           View this post on Instagram                       A post shared by Cheugy and Proud ✨ (@cheugyasfuck) This new classification is taking the internet by storm. According to Urban Dictionary, cheugy is “the opposite of trendy. Stylish in middle school and high school but no longer in style.” You are...
There’s a photo of Dame Zandra Rhodes taken during the 2000s in her London “rainbow penthouse” in which she’s riding her pink exercise bicycle, decked out in an all-pink jumpsuit, with her fuchsia hair tied back in a low ponytail. It’s an image burned deep into my memory, serving as inspiration any time I need to be reminded to stay true to myself. Rhodes has always been loyal to her creative vision. The British fashion and textile designer was making hand-painted silk tops, rhinestone-adorned caftans,...
