The 8 Best Fall Fashion Trends For 2021 Are Already in Your Closet

Sometimes, it’s simply an impulse decision. We see a cute pair of shoes on our favorite celebrity, and suddenly, we’re Googling things like “chunky green boots” in hopes of finding our own. Or we click into some super random roundup and spot the most gorgeous dress, which causes us to lose all control and add to cart — and don’t get us started on seasonal shopping. Every few months, fashion bestows upon us a new crop of trends we feel pressured to purchase, lest we look behind the times. Well, for Fall 2021, we’re calling for an opposite strategy: Want to dress like the future? Look back into your own closet first.

In news that’s great for your wallet, we’ve discovered that eight of today’s top trends — aka styles we saw all over over the Fall 2021 runways — are items that many of us have already invested in.

Annie Leibovitz Celebrates Her First-Ever Fashion Book with Her Friends at Vogue and Vanity Fair

To say this week is an exciting one for the fashion industry would be an understatement. There is much to celebrate, and high on that list is the release of the book Annie Leibovitz: Wonderland (Phaidon) which was the reason that a notable group gathered at Hauser & Wirth’s pop-up show at Studio 525 in Chelsea yesterday afternoon.

Though you’d think it wasn’t so, this is the photographer’s first-ever collection of fashion images; she wanted to save them all for something special, as she states in the book.

“This is Annie’s first book that celebrates fashion and fashion imagery. And it’s a relationship that we at Vogue and at Vanity Fair have been so incredibly in awe to witness and to see develop,” said Anna Wintour to the crowd at the book launch. “No matter the shoot, Annie has the most miraculous way of creating an image that so perfectly

Fashion on the field — A look at the best college football uniforms for Week 2

Week 2 of the college football season is upon us and a handful of teams have already made statements before stepping on the field.

The Oregon Ducks are tried and true when it comes to uniform announcements, and this week is no different. A new combination was revealed ahead of their matchup against Ohio State. Although Brutus and the Duck will likely draw attention on their respective sidelines, it’ll be hard to keep your eyes off of these uniforms.

The solid white-on-white look is a bold fashion statement. Maybe wearing white after Labor Day isn’t that bad after all.

Miami will also rock a solid colorway with their green-on-green unis, but let’s be honest, the Turnover

Maxwell brings shimmer, shine and smiles to NY Fashion Week

NEW YORK (AP) — At the end of Brandon Maxwell’s show at New York Fashion Week, his models were doing something models don’t usually do on runways: They were smiling.

Maybe that’s because Maxwell had dressed them in clothes meant to project joy and fun — psychedelic patterns, shimmering fabrics and bright colors, in casual garments that evoked a day in the park or at the beach.

“Don’t we all want to be on a beach at this point?” Maxwell said during a backstage interview after Friday night’s show. “Life has not been a beach for the last year and a half.”

In the past, he said, his designs have been a more literal reflection of his mood and experiences. “If it’s a dark time, it’s been dark clothes, and tight,” he said.

But this time, rather than focus on the bleakness of the past year, Maxwell said he wanted

Brandon Maxwell Spring 2022 Ready-to-Wear Collection

Brandon Maxwell was busier than usual backstage because he was wearing two hats: designer and stylist. “I wanted to do something that felt authentic,” he said. “When I started I was maybe insecure about not having a fashion education, so I felt I needed to be more serious. But I’m not that serious a person. During the pandemic, I decided that if I got the opportunity ever again, I’d like to do it as me.”

From the first look, this was different. In the five years he’s been on the runway Maxwell has been print-averse, but peeking out from beneath the show-opening sharply tailored jacket was a printed bodysuit, in not just any print but a swirling psychedelic print. Look two featured a sweatshirt with an illustration by the poster artist Mishka Westell on which a mushroom poses on a long shapely pair of legs.

So, just who is Brandon

The Survivor Fashion Show Was a Celebration of Resilience

Back in September 2019, as activist and 2019 Nobel Peace Prize nominee Amanda Nguyen sat front row during New York Fashion Week, she heard attendees ask each other over and over, “What are you wearing?” The question is innocuous and joyful in the context of fashion, but as a rape survivor, Nguyen couldn’t help thinking about how hostile it felt when she’d been asked the same thing by law enforcement.

Then it clicked: What if survivors reclaimed those words and walked proudly wearing whatever they wanted? From there, the idea for the survivor fashion show was born.

Nguyen is the founder of Rise, a nonprofit that protects and supports sexual assault survivors’ rights. She created the organization after her assault in college, once she saw how flawed and traumatizing the legal system was for survivors. Since its inception in 2014, the organization has helped to

LaQuan Smith throws a fashion party at Empire State Building

NEW YORK (AP) — Where the party girls at? On Thursday night, some were on top of the Empire State Building walking LaQuan Smith’s New York Fashion Week runway in slinky blue and white sequin minis, barely there one pieces and shiny body hugging pants.

In his first see now, buy now show, the designer hosted about 200 guests on the landmark’s famous Observation Deck with sweeping cityscape views as the wind tried to make away with one of his model’s huge black hats.

“This building is a true representation of New York City dreams,” Smith told The Associated Press before his evening show. “Me being a New York native, I have vivid memories of coming here as a kid. It’s a full circle moment.”

And he meant that literally, sending his models all around the deck to an explicit soundtrack that screamed it’s time to party.

“I’m really excited

Route App Lets You Track All Your Fashion Orders At Once

If you’re an internet user in the year 2021, there’s a good chance that you shop online. And that means you’re familiar with the rollercoaster ride that is waiting for your package. Tracking information from the shipping company isn’t always reliable. An email from the retailer might say that the shoes you ordered were delivered, but you know they never materialized.

Evan Walker, founder and CEO of Route, is on a mission to make that process simpler and more efficient. “We saw this big whitespace after purchase,” Walker tells Bustle. “There was this huge opportunity to communicate with the customer after purchase in a way that was much better than an email.”

Thus, Route was born. The platform works in two ways, one designed for consumers and one that caters toward merchants. If you’re a consumer, you can think of it as the central hub for everything you buy

Antique Fashion: Interesting Gloves and Accessories to Collect and Wear | Antique Information & History Education

Wearing gloves has gone in and out of fashion for centuries. It has been several decades since wearing gloves was an everyday “must” for fashion conscious 20th-century and 21st-century women. But, guess what? Your mother’s gloves are making a comeback as collectible and wearable. Even a current website blogger, “The Closet Historian,” is all about collecting and wearing gloves.

During their 20th-century popularity, gloves were made for every occasion from lunch to cocktail time and restaurant dining, weddings and funerals. Their materials included cotton, silk and leather. Many were crocheted by manufacturers or individual women. There were also gloves made for men, of quality leather.

The popularity of the newly invented automobile in the early 20th century and the growing interest in sports events resulted in specialty gloves. That was when the “glove compartment “ was invented. Women’s gloves were made of goat skin. Men’s were made of dog skins.
