Mango's Black Friday Sale Is Already Here

Mango’s Black Friday Sale Is Already Here

If it seems like Black Friday deals are arriving earlier and earlier every year, it’s because they are—and Mango wanted in on the action. The retailer is hosting an early sale from now until November 22 where you get 40% for every order over $150 and 30% off for every order over $100 using the code EXTRA40. Everyone knows the best sales are the sitewide ones, so I have a feeling this is about to attract a lot of fashion-conscious shoppers. Honestly, there’s no category that Mango doesn’t excel in. Personally, I’ve always loved the brand’s dresses, but the outerwear, shoes, and knit categories have…

The 18 Best Black Knee-High Boots on the Market

The boot trend we’re about to dive into is nothing new. In fact, it’s quite a classic: knee-high boots. While knee-high boots come in many colorways and varieties, it’s black knee-high boots, in particular, that fashion girls are taking a liking to this fall season, and so far, they are only styling them one way. Instead of pairing the boot trend with skinny jeans, tights, or lengthier hemlines, they are taking things to the next level and are styling the shoes with completely bare legs.  From minidresses to short shorts, Instagram has proven that this season, knee-high boots are destined for…

I Tried 19 Pairs of Black Skinny Jeans—These 7 Are the Best

They may not be the most exciting thing in a closet, but a good pair of black skinny jeans is a wardrobe essential that I can’t imagine life without. This was made much more apparent to me recently when I got rid of my trusted pair of black skinnies that I’d worn for years and were definitely past their prime. Only once this key piece was missing from my closet did I realize just how important it was that I invest in a new pair. (You really don’t know a good thing until it’s gone, amirite?) I have L.A. style,…

24 of the Best Pairs of Black Flats for Women

Similar to black sandals, pumps, and booties, this footwear silhouette is essentially no-fail given its highly versatile nature. That ideal pair of black flats—whether that’s a ballet style, flat mules, or loafers—can be dressed up or down and could probably go with just about everything you own. Have a go-to denim and sweater look? That pair of black loafers would look great. A blazer and tee situation? Just imagine that ensemble with chic flat mules. Oh, and of course,…

For us, that’s black ankle boots. Predictable? Sure. Wrong? Absolutely not. The reason black ankle boots are (almost) never a bad choice is that they have versatility.

8 Gray Outfits to Wear Instead of All Black

One of the most enjoyable aspects of my job is analyzing trends. And when a new season arrives, I love delving back into our catalog of fashion shows to refresh myself on some of the chicest styles that ruled on the runways six months ago. One of the most prominent trends I spotted on practically every fall 2020 runway show had one “boring” color scheme in common: gray. Yep, the neutral hue appeared in full force giving us a clear indication of what we can expect to see at all our favorite retailers (and all over our feeds) this upcoming season. The…

August is National Black Business Month, and while we love celebrating our favorite Black artists and Black-owned beauty brands all 365 days of the year, we felt it was an especially opportune time to shine a spotlight on some of the beauty industry’s best artistic talent and the Black-owned businesses and products they love, consistently use, and recommend to friends, family, A-list clients, and, of course, you!  Below, we asked leading hairstylists and makeup artists (who regularly work with the glamorous likes of Tracee Ellis Ross, Naomi Campbell, Gabrielle Union, Laverne Cox, and so many more) which Black-owned brands and formulas we’d regularly…
