4 Ways to Wear Dungarees But Still Look Pulled-Together

If I had to describe dungarees, the word polished probably would not be at the top of the list. For me, they immediately summon images of a long-haired, island-dwelling Meryl Streep in Mamma Mia! or ‘90s children’s TV presenters. In both contexts, they are used to convey a dressed-down nonchalance, and so as someone who generally feels more comfortable in tailoring than the latest It sneakers, I’ve never quite seen the appeal of the trend. However, this season, something has shifted, and a whole host of Instagram’s best dressed might have changed my mind. (They have a funny habit of doing this.) Lockdown has had an effect on our wardrobes, and for those of us who are used to dressing up for our jobs, it’s been ...

Experts Warn These Beauty Mistakes Could Be Making Your Skin Age Prematurely

You’d be right in assuming that makeup wipes really have no place in any beauty aficionado’s routine. Despite the fact that their throwaway nature has the potential to drastically damage the planet, they can also prove detrimental to the condition of your skin. “Most cleansing wipes contain detergent-like chemicals and harsh alcohols that strip away the natural pH balance of the skin. These ingredients can cause irritation and leave the skin dry, dehydrated and sensitive,” reveals celebrity facialist Lisa Harris. At this point, you might be questioning just how serious the dryness can really be. However, it turns out it’s not just the harsh chemicals that can cause the skin to age. Harris goes on, “Wipes don’t cleanse the skin properly and instead spread bacteria around the face, whic...

The Jeans Trends We’re Taking Note of in 2020

Whether you’re a loyal skinny-jeans lover or a straight-leg convert, jeans are, for most of us, the lifeblood of our wardrobes. Able to be elevated with heels and a nice top or dressed down with a white tee and boots, they have got to be one of the most versatile and hardworking items we own. So really, finding the perfect pair should be at the top of your shopping priority list. As it’s such a staple, we don’t like being too prescriptive about which styles you should buy. However, if you’re in the market for a new pair in 2020, there are certain fits that are sure to get you the nod of approval from fashion folks. At the top of the list has to be flared, the ‘70s staple that was all over the runways at fashion week. Leg-lengthening and personality-p...

30 Joy-Inducing Nail-Art Pictures We Can’t Stop Looking At

Much like our wardrobes, our beauty looks also brighten when the summer months hit. We rose our cheeks and add pops of coral to our lips, but nails? That’s where the fun is. Acting as a blank canvas to the various polishes at our disposal, our nails afford us the perfect opportunity to let our personalities shine through—perhaps even more so than the clothes we wear. So now that nail salons are beginning to reopen, we thought it was the perfect time to collate some colourful nail-art options in one place.  Ahead of reuniting with our technicians, whose steady hands and precision painting we’ve sorely missed, we began saving amazing nail-art pictures to bring with us for inspiration. We found that many of our favourite styles fell into one of six categories. ...

The 4 Throw-On Dresses Emily Ratajkowski Is Wearing This Summer

Emily Ratajkowski has always been quite the chameleon when it comes to personal style. One day the model will be in a figure-hugging ensemble, while the next she might play into more casual loungewear with tracksuit bottoms and an oversize hoodie. Continuing the pattern, this summer Ratajkowski has been seen a number of times on the streets of New York dressed in various outfits which highlight her versatility. From a strapless bodycon midi dress, to a neon green t-shirt dress and a patterned mini by Réalisation Par, EmRata is proving that no two days need to be the same when it comes to summer dressing. Maintaining a practical element, Ratajkowski often accessorises her looks with flat footwear and this summer it seems the model has joined the likes of Meghan Markle and Emm...

I’m 5’1″—Here Are All the Petite Summer Dresses I Have on My Wish List

It’s not easy being petite. For all the money you spend on clothes, often you have to then fork out even more for alterations. Hemlines are too long, billowing sleeves have too much excess fabric, and don’t even get me started at waistlines that usually end up sitting somewhere around your hips.  Thankfully though, there are currently several brands across the high street that are making things easier for those of us lacking a little bit of height. From Next to New Look, Topshop to ASOS, dedicated petite ranges are becoming much easier to find if you just know where to look.  You Deserve to Make Money Even When you are looking for Dates Online.

I Can’t Go on Holiday, But I Want to Wear All These Swimsuits as Tops

The global pandemic has shifted many things for us day to day. It’s meant a complete halt to so many activities many of us took for granted. Now, there are plenty of more important issues at hand than whether or not you can go on holiday, but let’s be honest: There are a lot of people clamouring for a change of scenery. After weeks of sticking around the same areas, the temptation to jet off to somewhere completely different is acute. While it’s unlikely that a lot of us will be heading to warmer climes anytime soon, that doesn’t mean we can’t wear the swimsuits we thought we’d be using this year.

14 of the Prettiest Printed Dresses to Throw on With Sandals

One of the best things about summer dressing is the ease of putting an outfit together in the morning. There’s no faffing with layers or spending too long in front of the mirror wondering whether this goes with that. Herein lies the beauty of the dress-and-sandal duo—the simplicity of waking up and throwing on a dress with your favourite sandals and looking not only acceptable but also like you’ve actually put in triple the effort. My personal lockdown experience was transformed when the weather began to warm up and I realised that the right dress can be just as comfy as joggers, and it made me feel altogether more joyful. Now it’s hard to get me to wear anything else.  As we reach peak summer, even if it involves throwing a light jacket over when those pesky British clouds...

12 Hand Sanitisers That Almost Smell Just as Good as Perfume

For those of you who have been diligently applying hand sanitiser for years, you’re probably feeling pretty smug right now—especially considering all of the eye-rolls you encountered every time you took out your prized bottle before a meal. Well, as this is our new normal, we all need to get on board and befriend the not-so-humble-anymore hand sanitiser. There are obviously two camps of sanitiser: the usual medical-scented ones and the more luxe versions.  With frequent use, the strong alcohol scent can often seem a bit harsh, so we’ve done the legwork for you to find the best hand sanitisers that also smell pretty nice. Reminder: It’s recommended to go for an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that has at least 60% alcohol content, so keep an eye out for th...

28 Smart But Comfy Trousers That Are Perfect for Summer

After months of slouching, the novelty of wearing jogging bottoms has well and truly worn off. I want to feel comfortable, for sure, but now I miss feeling put-together and am slowly revisiting the smarter items in my wardrobe. This summer, we wrote about a pair of linen jogging bottoms from H&M on Who What Wear, and it’s clear from the number of clicks it generated that I’m not the only one wanting to swap my slobbing-around clothes for something a little more polished. I’m normally a dress person in summer, however, I am finding myself drawn towards relaxed trousers in either lightweight linens or with uplifting summer shades. The H&M jogging bottoms are now sadly low in stock, but I’ve found lots of other equally tempting pairs from brands including Arket...
