The 21 Best Concealers for Dark Circles, Hands Down

The 21 Best Concealers for Dark Circles, Hands Down

One of the beautiful things about concealer is its versatility. Find a good formula, and you can use it for everything under the sun—highlighting, contouring, diffusing the look of that pimple you woke up to, and, perhaps our favorite perk, camouflaging dark circles.  Now, it’s important to be aware that there are tons of culprits where dark circles are concerned, and rather annoyingly, not all of them are under our control. (For instance, allergies, bone structure, age, underlying skin conditions like hyperpigmentation, and genetics can all cause or worsen dark circles.) You can read our A-list esthetician’s guide to treating…

The 10 Best Mascaras at Ulta Right Now, Hands Down

The 10 Best Mascaras at Ulta Right Now, Hands Down

Some of my very best memories growing up involve tagging along with my mom when she would go shopping for makeup, and Ulta, in my mind, was some kind of mystical mecca I never ever wanted to leave. This was back in the day when I had an allowance, so I loved that I could browse and ogle the more expensive products my mom was after while ultimately blowing my personal stash of cash on more affordable drugstore names like Covergirl and L’Oréal. Of course, that flexibility in price point is still one of my favorite things about Ulta, and…

The 11 Best Lip Balm Brands, Hands Down

The 11 Best Lip Balm Brands, Hands Down

You could say I have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to ineffective lip balms. (Ironically, some of the most “iconic” or “best” lip balm brands have been the most underwhelming offenders.) Perhaps, it’s because I’m a native Minnesotan who endured years of below-freezing temperatures (and perpetually chapped, sucked-dry lips), but I have annoyingly high standards when it comes to lip balms and reviewing their *actual* efficacy. I mean, how many times have you applied a lip balm from a well-known brand only to become confused and irritated 10 minutes later when your lips feel thirstier and more sandpapery than they…

The 11 Coolest Outfits With Ripped Jeans, Hands Down

The 11 Coolest Outfits With Ripped Jeans, Hands Down

I tend to gravitate toward tailored, polished pieces so you might be surprised to hear about one of my recent fashion obsessions: ripped jeans. I tie it to both the more casual, comfortable wardrobe I’ve been adopting this year, the grunge-inspired fashion unfolding on TikTok, and my general love of all things ‘90s, but there’s no denying that I can’t get enough of the trend. Plus, it’s been everywhere on the fashion scene recently, so I’ve been inspired by all of the cool ways insiders are wearing it right now. Whether worn with the fall sweater vest trend, chunky loafers,…

The 16 Best Peacoats for Women, Hands Down

The 16 Best Peacoats for Women, Hands Down

As far as classic winter coats go, the peacoat reigns supreme. The double-breasted winter staple has stood the test of time and become a highly coveted item for celebrities like Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. It has that certain je ne sais quoi that can make even the most casual outfit look prim and polished. Adaptations to the iconic sailor-style over the years have included longer cuts, texturized bouclé, and bold colors. There are so many great options, yet choosing one in the clutter of thousands can be a tricky task. Ahead, I break down the peacoats that are a step above basic…

The 10 Best Vanilla Perfumes of All Time, Hands Down

The 10 Best Vanilla Perfumes of All Time, Hands Down

Growing up, the bottles of body sprays, lotions, butters, and eau de toilettes that lined my bathroom vanity were far sweeter than a desert-filled episode of The Great British Baking Show. My rotation typically included the latest cloyingly saccharine launch from Bath & Body Works; Britney Spears’s Fantasy (or Curious); a pure-sugar scent that, not surprisingly, was called Pink Sugar; and anything else my collection of glossy magazines like Seventeen, CosmoGirl, and Teen Vogue was advertising. If it smelled like a frosted bakehouse cookie with sprinkles or the Cinnabon stand at the mall, I was—without a doubt—wearing it.  I’ll always love unapologetically sweet scents,…

The 17 Best Seamless Bras, Hands Down

There are plenty of things we can thank athleisure for, such as yoga pants, chunky sneakers, and being able to wear the most comfortable clothes while still looking chic. The latest trend the full-blown aesthetic has inspired? Seamless bras. The soft-cup bra, otherwise known as a bralette, has been on the rise as a comfortable alternative to the padded or underwire bra. Now, people are preferring this style more than ever. According to Jennifer Zuccarini, founder of Fleur du Mal, we can also credit the seamless bra’s newfound popularity to athleisure. “The rise of the soft bra or wireless bra,…

These Are the 7 Most Photogenic Fall Trends, Hands Down

Street style photographer Darrel Hunter is someone I always look to for capturing the biggest trends during fashion month. With an eye for what instantly reads as photogenic, the London-based photographer’s images are an instant study of what I immediately want to add to my closet and start wearing right away. Having spotted style photos that Hunter took recently at Copenhagen Fashion Week, I was curious to hear his thoughts on the biggest emerging fall trends on his radar and what we can expect to see more of for the season ahead. From sleek leather pieces to the colors that are taking…

The 32 Best Bomber Jackets for Women, Hands Down

The 32 Best Bomber Jackets for Women, Hands Down

The seasonless topper became an off-duty-supermodel sensation around 2015. As if they planned it, Gigi Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Bella Hadid were spotted all over New York and L.A. wearing the trendy jacket. They paired it with sneakers, leggings, and crop tops for running errands and threw it over LBDs and heels for a night out. Affordable retailers quickly caught on, and suddenly everyone was wearing one.  Since then, the style has prevailed on the runways as designers incorporated it into varying trends each season. No longer is this piece of outerwear only appropriate for an athleisure vibe. It’s a tale of the times and fitting for seasonless, genderless fashion. Lucky…

The 21 Best Leggings for Hot Yoga, Hands Down

The 21 Best Leggings for Hot Yoga, Hands Down

With summer winding down, it’s time to think seriously about getting that gym membership you’ve been thinking about signing up for. Because when the warm temps are gone, so are those comfortable outdoor workouts, where you can easily run, walk, bike, and more. Of course, fall is still a great time for those three-mile-long jogs, but when winter rolls around, it’s not quite that easy to get the motivation to head out the door. Aside from offering a good space to get in your daily fitness goals, gyms also give you access to some great classes—hot yoga being one that we think you…
