Everything You Need To Know About “Cheugy,” the Term Gaining Popularity on TikTok

Basic, out of date, simply uncool. A new word that has been gaining popularity on TikTok recently encompasses all these things: “cheugy.” The term, pronounced “chew-gee” with a hard “G,” refers to anything or anyone that’s behind the current trends. Here’s everything you need to know about the internet’s current buzzword.

What is the cheugy definition, and what are some examples of cheugy style?

The term is said to describe the “millennial girl-boss aesthetic.” More broadly, it represents anything that used to be cool and trendy but is now not. It is more intentional than being basic, because while “basic” implies that people are ignorant about out-of-date trends, cheugy implies that they choose to wear these older styles, knowing they’re uncool.

What constitutes as cheugy is constantly changing, but it’s basically anything that may have been considered cool for many millennials in middle school or high school that is no … Read the rest

My Job Is to Track Color Trends—These Are the Shades That Are Most Important

We recently uncovered the top color trend that will reign supreme in 2023 (yes, that far ahead). The color trend forecasters at WGSN and the experts at Coloro recently named Digital Lavender to be the next big color moment. That lavender hue has actually been cropping up already and was especially noteworthy during the F/W 21 collections, and the hue is apparently not going anywhere anytime soon.

Given that someone like Jenny Clark, the head of color at WGSN, has an actual job that tracks color trends, we thought we’d inquire more about upcoming trending hues. She provided further insight in a release that discussed what the fashion color palette will look like over the next few seasons. As a preview, there’s everything from bold hues to a few softer shades as well. With all that in mind, keep scrolling to check out the colors that will be most important. … Read the rest

Tiffany & Co. Just Introduced Its First Engagement Ring for Men

With more and more high-profile celebrities, from Michael B. Jordan and Timothée Chalamet to Pharrell Williams and Harry Styles, embracing the allure of jewellery like strands of pearls and blinged-out brooches, it goes without saying that men are feeling more comfortable expressing themselves with accessories. Tiffany & Co. is meeting this moment with the debut of the Charles Tiffany setting — its first engagement ring for men.

Named after the luxury brand’s founder Charles Lewis Tiffany (who introduced the women’s solitaire diamond engagement ring in 1886), the new design plays off the arresting silhouette of a signet ring — which has also had quite a moment in fashion circles in recent years. Featuring either a round brilliant or emerald-cut diamond in the middle, which can range up to five carats in size, the Charles Tiffany setting has a knife-edge band inspired by the New York-based company’s initial engagement ring style … Read the rest

Good Light Founder David Yi on the Difference Between K-Beauty Appreciation and Fetishization

Multi-talented journalist, brand founder and author David Yi is a beauty industry powerhouse. With over a decade of experience under his belt in the New York media space (where he’s written for publications like WWD and Mashable), Yi launched his own inclusive beauty site, Very Good Light, in 2016. His latest ventures include a new genderless skincare brand called Good Light and an upcoming book called Pretty Boys (to be released June 22).

Kicking off our series of brand founder interviews for Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, we caught up with Yi to chat all things beauty, including why he’s launched not one but two inclusive beauty brands, and how consumers can appreciate Korean beauty without fetishizing cultural practices and rituals.

How did you make the transition from journalism to product development?

“I’ve been a journalist for over a decade, mostly in the fashion and beauty space, … Read the rest

French Girls Laugh Every Time Americans Wear These 3 Things

There’s no denying the fact that Americans are obsessed with French-girl style. As we’ve discussed pretty tirelessly, Parisian women dress in a way that, for whatever reason, American girls aspire to achieve. Normally, we ask our favorite French girls all about the items they’re buying, wearing, loving, etc., so that we can all go off and make our purchases accordingly, but this time we wanted to switch it up. Intrigued yet?

We reached out to a handful of our favorite French women and asked them what, if anything, it is about American style that makes them laugh. I tried guessing before I asked them the daunting question, but my answers were nowhere close to what they had to say. When it comes to the differences between American and French style, these Parisian ladies have quite a few things to say. Ahead, find out what French girls said they find funny … Read the rest

The 2021 Met Gala Has Some Very Gen-Z Co-Chairs

This article was originally published on April 13. 

Fashion’s biggest night had to be cancelled last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the 2021 Met Gala is back. And while the show must go on, the star-studded fundraising event will look a bit different than it has in previous years.

Here’s what we know about the 2021 Met Gala so far.

When is the 2021 Met Gala?

Traditionally, the Met Gala is held on the first Monday in May at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. That’s not the case in 2021, however. Instead, the event will be held in two parts: A smaller, more intimate ceremony will take place on September 13, coinciding with New York Fashion Week, which will hopefully also be able to occur live (instead of completely virtually, as it has in recent seasons) in some capacity. This is all TBD based on evolving … Read the rest

I'm No Makeup Artist, But These Simple Products Are All I'm Using in 2021

Anyone who knows me will tell you that my makeup skills are lacking. I only managed to do my first-ever successful winged liner last year, and I have absolutely no idea where half the products I own are actually supposed to be applied. However, while I might not be able to execute the perfect eye shadow look or know how to contour my nose, I do consider myself somewhat of an expert in simple, easy-to-use products, particularly creamy ones that I can apply with my fingers without too much thought. 

You see, my lack of makeup skills means that I’m particularly rubbish at using products that require any sort of artistic ability. Last year, as I found myself cooped up at home with some more time on my hands, I made it my mission to at least try some of the more taxing products in my collection. I spent hours … Read the rest

Gen Z fave Emma Chamberlain was named Mane Addicts’ newest “Mane Muse.” The online hairstyling publication, which was created by celeb hairstylist and Ouai founder Jen Atkin, taps “celebrities and influencers that are standouts and trailblazers in the Gen-Z community,” so multi-hyphenate Chamberlain makes perfect sense as the brand’s first muse of 2021. (Previous title holders include Zendaya, Yara Shahidi and Addison Rae.) Chamberlain’s muse status comes with a fun photo shoot that features the YouTube star in a glam, early 2000s-inspired look (beaded choker included).
