“Swimsuit season”—not to mention shopping for it—can be its own special kind of hell, especially for people who identify as non-binary. Swimwear options remain woefully limited to stereotypical ideas of gender (bikini vs. trunks), but thankfully, Hirsuit is filling that gap with an androgynous suit made for a wide range of bodies, sizes (XXS-XXL), and identities. The idea comes from Rachel Berks, who is also behind the concept store and community space Otherwild, and her partner, artist A.L. Steiner. “Though gender-neutral clothing has been trending for...

  Rebelde Girl WHEN REGINA MERSON—a Mexico native raised in Dallas—left her lucrative career as a lawyer to launch a makeup line with the unique needs of Latinas in mind, it was as daunting as it was life affirming. “A lot of us are first generation,” she says of American Latinas, “and the first in our families to go to college, get office jobs, and have friends outside our cultural circles. But at some point, we also come home to our families, churches, and traditions.” Each occasion...

Send Nudies IF SOME DUDE on Craigslist hadn’t dicked her over when she tried to buy his chainstitch machine, Judith Pierce, the “stitch witch” behind Rose-Cut Clothing (rustycuts.com), may have never tried appliqué. Using this needlework technique, she no longer needed expensive, specialized equipment, and her line of Western-inspired pieces was born. The L.A.-based designer had been using vintage fabrics—from velvet paintings to old Star Wars and Budweiser sheets, “every kitschy thing that you can think of,” she says—when she decided to lean into her obsession...
  Charmed CHARM BELTS ARE all the rage again. But you don’t need to drop mad loot on this look. Instead, you can customize your baubles to better match your personal brand by making this season’s hot accessory yourself. 1. Measure your waist, double that, and add 15" to calculate the length of chain you’ll need. Get a chain with large links; we used a 6mm curb chain (available at any jewelry supply store). The larger the links, the easier it will be to clasp the belt and...
  Float On Floating eyeliner, originally made famous in the ’60s by Twiggy, has been modernized with bright pops of color, thick uneven lines, super thin lines, or even broken up lines. Today’s version has no rules. The easiest method, pictured here, is a thick line of color. Using a chubby color pencil liner (like Sephora Collection Colorful Shadow & Liner in Turquoise, $14), draw a rounded line above your natural eye crease, just below the brow bone. Smudge the sharp pencil line with an eye shadow brush...
