5 Sandal Trends Leading the Way This Summer

Summer 2021 is inching closer, bringing with it hot temperatures and a slew of fresh footwear trends including all kinds of sandals. It’s time to release the toes! Look to Spring 2021 ready-to-wear shows from designers like AGL and Kenzo where chunky lug-sole sandals and colourful mules walked off of runways and onto the street style scene overseas. These statement kicks will get you ready for the restaurant patio (once those reopen coast to coast — fingers crossed) or your condo balcony. If you’re looking for an adventure, Nike and Suicoke are the brands to get you geared up for a summer outdoors. Turn to the utility sandal to transform feelings of wanderlust into hikes and camping trips — a single Velcro strap is all you need and you’re treetop-bound. Below, we break down the top sandal trends and summer shoes for women.

Jennifer Aniston's Facialist Gave Me Her Product Picks—They Don't Disappoint

The Lineup is a monthly series where we’re giving you an inside peek at the beauty lineups of cool fashion people, editors, makeup artists, hairstylists, and estheticians—all the people we trust the most. Get ready for a behind-the-scenes look at all the can’t-live-without products that make their worlds go round.

After more than a year of social distancing, I’ve become a pro at adapting my beauty routine. I’ve swapped my airbrush tans for gradual lotions; switched out my gel nails for something more natural; and have even kept my facials on pause in favor of at-home treatments. If you’ve felt inspired to do the same, then there’s a good chance you’re already familiar with the wizardry of Melanie Simon, aka the genius brainchild behind the Ziip Electrical Facial Device ($495) (and the woman responsible for Jennifer Aniston’s sculpted and glowy skin).

Mother-Daughter Duos Who Defined Generational Style in Fashion Campaigns

For many women, the person whose style has most inspired their own is their mother. That’s certainly the case for many celebrities, some of whom have posed with their moms in fashion campaigns, highlighting how their singular mother-daughter style (and beauty) has carried on through generations.

From bona fide supermodel Naomi Campbell and her model mom Valerie Morris-Campbell (who taught her daughter how to walk *and* how to strut) to Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber (who says she still borrows from her mom’s closet and only wishes they were the same shoe size), we’ve spotlighted some of the most memorable mother-daughter duos featured in fashion campaigns over the last decade, modelling for brands from Coach to Lanvin.

I Went Deep Into Nordstrom’s New Arrivals—These 30 Pieces Did It for Me 

Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one editor, staffer, or influencer shares their top 30 must-haves or current wish-list items.

There are perks to being an editor, sure, but the truth is I’m faced with so much shopping temptation on the daily that I have to get creative (aka thrifty) when building my wardrobe. I’ve basically become BFFs with the high-low mix: For every occasional splurge, I offset it with a handful of more affordable buys. I swear this logic makes total sense in my head.

Nordstrom gets it. I’m certain that’s why it’s always well-stocked with five-star gems, from $395 sandals that go with essentially everything to $20 tanks that are perfect for layering. With all of that in mind, I thought I’d take you on a little tour of the spendy finds and sartorial steals I have stashed in my cart for summer. Consider it your … Read the rest

2021's Trending Sneakers and How to Wear Them

We could write an entire novel devoted solely to sneaker trends. Despite occupying a small, relatively niche subset of the sartorial umbrella, sneakers seem to be subject to just as many trend fluctuations as, say, outerwear or bags. From dad sneakers and platforms to the resurgence of Vans, Reebok, and Fila, there’s always something to report on in the sneaker world. 

This brings us to the topic of the best sneakers for women in 2021. After carefully considering the street style, runway, and retail trends, we’ve separated today’s trendy sneakers into five main camps: dad sneakers, all-white sneakers, platforms and exaggerated soles, weekend kicks, and athleisure. Keep scrolling for the 2021 way to wear sneakers and to shop the most on-trend buys in each category.

Generally speaking, dad sneakers are still going strong in the high-fashion world. But we’re seeing a trend toward more true-to-era, less exaggerated versions of the

Something about Guo Pei’s business model I found really fascinating was that people paid in advance; they became members – there was that scene with a VIP client who spent nearly a million dollars.

People Think My 53-Year-Old Mom Is 20 Years Younger, Here's Her Product Wishlist

A few years ago it seemed like my skin decided to go absolutely haywire all at once. My acne started flaring up almost daily, and my oily skin went into overdrive. Before I had the luxury of tapping into my colleagues of the beauty editor world, my first and primary expert was always my mom. Even now, she’s still my soundboard for when I want the scoop on a new skincare product, and don’t want to bother deep-diving into online reviews. Quite simply, she’s extremely into caring for her skin and making sure it’s in tip-top shape. As a result of her well-curated routine, it’s not uncommon for people to mistake her for someone decades younger.

I have already shared her meticulous face-plumping and glow-inducing regimen here at Who What Wear before, and the response was immense. After receiving so many comments requesting a follow-up, I asked my mother to … Read the rest
