Normcore fashion has certainly lived out its days: the axioms of the movement have died, even though its aesthetics continue to dominate the fashion world. Perhaps they even dominate your own closet (I know that there are more than a few articles of “dad clothes” strewn across my room). From the beginning, normcore was a movement against the fundamentals of an oversaturated, overpriced, and unsustainable fashion market that peaked in 2014. If the trends aren’t exactly beneficial for the consumer, then it’s time to actively...
Angelic high notes, numerous star-studded performances, and an ungodly album debut are just some of the major waves Chloe x Halle have made this rollercoaster of a year. Although the sisterly duo has always tapped into unimaginable creativity with their music, in 2020, they’ve managed to create anticipated productions even during quarantine. Following the June release of their Grammy-nominated, sophomore album, Ungodly Hour, Chloe x Halle have worn a series of up-to-par outfits for socially distant concerts in their own backyard.  With Zerina Akers as their...
Tahereh Mafi YA Author Irvine, CA   Tell me about this outfit. The vest is Alix of Bohemia. The sweater is actually an Alexander McQueen dress that I bought on super sale years ago. I hated the skirt, so I cut it off. I know, sacrilege! The silk pants are Nili Lotan and the earrings are Jennifer Fisher. The scarf I’ve wrapped as a turban is from Haute Hijab. Has style always been an important aspect of your life?I’m a child of immigrants who came here with nothing. It was always...

Morticia Addams personifies the ideal homemaker—her husband Gomez adores and respects her, and she cooks, knits, and maintains a calm head while raising two children. But this matriarch does it all with a macabre twist—like clipping and tossing blooming roses and instead displaying their spiky stems in a vase. First appearing in The New Yorker in the 1930s, Morticia and the Addams family have been the focus of a 1964 TV series, a 1992 cartoon series, and several movies, both live action and animated. But...
Nightmare On Bean Street Jazmin Bean is pushing the boundaries of beauty with their creepy-cute style The stuff of nightmares, the stuff of dreams—childhood fantasies and horrors rolled into one. These are the first impressions you might get scrolling through the Instagram account of non-binary U.K. musician Jazmin Bean.

The outfits are styled in ways you wouldn’t expect,...
In a New York Times exposé published on Saturday, reporter Edmund Lee outlines the many ways that Anna Wintour fostered a work environment that has “sidelined and tokenized women of color, especially Black women.” Wintour has been the Editor-in-Chief of Vogue since 1988 and Condé Nast’s artistic director since 2013. Her influence on the fashion industry is undeniable, but what damage has the magazine’s representations of race and Wintour’s treatment of their employees of color caused? Lee spoke with Black fashion journalists, including current and former Vogue...
On August 13th, a collective of former Glossier retail employees, Outta The Gloss, published an open letter on Instagram to the popular makeup brand company calling out the blatant racism, transphobia, ableism and lack of accountability that the company failed to acknowledge and ignore. The open letter addresses various encounters that many retail employees, especially those who are LGBTQIA+ and/or BIPOC, also known as Offline Editors in the brand, experienced that were hostile and violent. Encounters such as verbal and physical harassment from customers and managers....
If you’ve ever wanted to smell like a 19th-century Russian countess, Rosamund Pike’s Gone Girl character, or even something as amorphous as the bridge of a Fleetwood Mac song, Rachel Syme has a scent for you. The New York-based journalist has the rare ability to commit smells to memory. And with her seasonal Twitter feature Perfume Genie, she uses this skill—plus her lifelong love of perfume—to introduce people to their new favorite scents. Her followers will share moods, memories, or photographs, and Syme responds with a...
Let’s play a game. Without thinking too hard, what are the first (non-policy) things that come to mind when you think of Hillary Clinton? You might think of the media's obsession with her emails, Bill Clinton, or when she unironically told Millennial and Gen-Z voters to “Pokemon-Go to the polls.” However, what likely comes to mind are her signature pantsuits. Fashion choices have long been used to disqualify or delegitimize powerful women, and, undoubtedly, Clinton’s pantsuits were used as a tool of communication to the...
