During the nineteenth century, blue was considered a versatile color, as suitable for elegant evening gowns and demure day dresses as it was for fashionable bonnets, slippers, and parasols. In shades ranging from the palest cerulean blue to the deepest navy, it adorned women of every age and every station, harmonizing with a wide range of hair colors and complexions. In today’s article, we look at some of the loveliest examples of the color blue in Victorian fashion. *Please note: Deep blues were generally achieved with aniline...

  At the Sunday showing of his Spring 2020 collection at New York Fashion Week, designer Prabal Gurung used his designs to pose the complex and increasingly relevant question: Who gets to be an American? Gurung told the Associated Press that “America to me is the sum of all things.” Gurung brought that sentiment to life by mixing classic Americana imagery—cowboy boots, denim, and tie-dye—with a more modern sense of America. The show featured diverse casting that included POC and plus-size models, further emphasizing Gurung’s twists on...
As a Tsalagi-citizen of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, I know firsthand that Indigenous people have always been inventive fashionistas. The long, printed Cherokee tear dress, for example, is believed to have originated during the Trail of Tears era. The fabric was torn and sewn together, since most Cherokee women didn’t have scissors due to the theft of most personal items by the U.S. government. Colonialism left Indigenous style in a wake of shame, but that never stopped clothing companies from culturally appropriating it—with decorative...

The hat was made for me by a designer who goes by the name Mad Hatter. The blouse and the skirt are both vintage [from the] ’70s, and the funny thing is, I found them on separate occasions. The choker I made—I make a lot of my own jewelry. The boots are vintage as well. They’re my favorite Victorian boots because...
  Kali Uchis   WE’VE BEEN HOT for Colombian-American songstress Kali Uchis since we first heard her 2012 mixtape Drunken Babble, which she released after graduating high school. Since then, she’s worked with heavy hitters like Snoop Dogg and Tyler, the Creator, standing out in the R&B/pop sea thanks to her silky smooth voice and Latin-influenced beats. And though her music has ears perking up, it’s the 24-year-old’s over-the-top femme, retro-meets-street style that has heads turning—think ’60s and ’70s prints, pumped-up bouffants, and headscarves, combined with tons of...
