With holidays come parties, so finish your cat-eye (or Euphoria-inspired glitter look) and take your tresses to the next level with disco waves. Hairstylist extraordinaire Ellie Hotaling from N.Y.C.’s Fringe Salon used Bantu knots to create this particular style. Originating centuries ago in southern Africa, Bantu knots are styled by twisting individual sections of hair into small, coiled buns, which can create cool waves when undone. It’s a technique that can be easily modified to fit your individual style and texture—prepping with the right type...
Just a few short years ago, I never saw girls that looked like me represented in the catalogues of my favorite clothing stores. This felt particularly evident when searching for lingerie. As a teenager, I’d have to play a guessing game on how a certain garment would look good on me, or run out of Victoria’s Secret in tears after trying on bras for two hours only to realize that 1. I’d never look like any of the models wearing them and 2. I’d never...

Melissa BlueVintage Seller and MusicianLos Angeles, CA Tell me about this outfit. I’m wearing a late-1920s jumpsuit—those are pants! I got it at Avalon Vintage in L.A.

The Perfect Fit WINTER IS PARTY-DRESS season. But as a large lady, my off-the-rack options have always been limited. That’s why I was so psyched to discover the affordable offerings at Balodana.com, a fashion site that only sells made-to-measure garments. Customers create a fit profile that includes a detailed list of all measurements—the site suggests asking a local tailor to do the measuring for the most accurate results—and can then choose from looks created by a dozen globally based designers. I selected a deep blue, retro-style...

  Shine On WHEN HENRY RUSCHMANN accidentally invented glitter back in 1934, he probably didn’t anticipate the impact it would have on children’s crafts, the makeup industry, LGBTQ culture, and, unfortunately, the environment. Eighty-five years later, we’re only beginning to understand the damage that plastics, especially microplastics like glitter, have on the earth. A 2019 study published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology found that the average American ingests between 39,000 and 52,000 microplastic particles a year. That’s terrifying enough to want to quit plastics forever,...
