I’m A Sneakerhead and These 31 Sneakers Make Every Outfit Feel Fresh

I’ve always been thoroughly into sneakers, but it wasn’t until I tallied up my online shopping purchases of 2021 (so far) that I felt the term sneakerhead adequately applied: since the beginning of January, six new pairs have made their way into my collection, and my thirst for them hasn’t stopped yet. I’d usually be going hard on the sandals front this close to spring, but the newest sneaker releases have tempted me too much to look elsewhere. My work from home uniform consists of some type of joggers or denim jeans, so a flashy sneaker feels like the perfect compliment.  The sneaker section is the first place I visit whenever I’m scanning my favorite online shops like SSENSE and Net-a-Porter, so you already know I’m well versed on which styles are worth investing in. It’s a vast market, so I’ve broken it down by trends and styles. Looking for

Meet Orphéon, the latest fragrance release from Diptyque. Launched on March 15, the eau de parfum is inspired by jazz clubs in Paris in the early 1960s.

British Women Politely Laugh Every Time Americans Wear These 4 Items

It may be entirely un-British to laugh about anyone else’s style choices (we Brits are far too polite for that), but I will say that as a Brit living in Los Angeles for over 12 years, I’ve picked up on certain American sartorial tendencies that I’ve found rather distinct and funny. I recall being taken aback on my first brunch date in Santa Monica where everyone looked like they had just stepped out of the gym (minus the sweat, of course). This is a far cry from the UK, where you’d never meet friends for lunch in yoga pants or sports gear if you aren’t actually planning to do sports. (Full disclosure: 12 years later, I now look likeI go to the gym too.)

While we love expressing our adoration for classic French style here on Who What Wear, it’s the Brits who take more style risks, exude an edgier Read the rest

Kaitlyn Bristowe Wants You to Chill About Body Odour

Kaitlyn Bristowe knows what it’s like to be in situations that would make anyone sweat. Take competing in the finale of Dancing with the Stars with some 60 million people watching (she won the mirrorball trophy, by the way) or dating a couple dozen men on national television as you search for a potential life partner as The Bachelorette. The Alberta-born Bristowe, who is returning to Bachelor nation as co-host of the upcoming seasons of The Bachelorette alongside fellow alum, Tayshia Adams, has been in some high-stress public scenarios. And yet, the host of the popular Off the Vine podcast decided to make the switch to natural deodorant a couple of years ago after crowd-sourcing suggestions about brands to try on Instagram. She says she hasn’t looked back.

Bristowe says her recent partnership with Schmidt’s, a brand beloved for its aluminum-free, Ecocert-certified natural formulas and scents derived from essential … Read the rest

The Best Styling Products for Wavy Hair and Type 2 Curls

Must of us know that curly and wavy hair can be on the drier side because the oils that are naturally produced by the scalp can’t travel down the hair shaft and nourish the hair as easily as they can with straight hair. Because of this, products for wavy hair need to be hydrating in order to keep it shiny and healthy. However, when it comes to type 2 hair — that is, waves that are bendable and lay closer to the head, appearing in a distinctive ‘S’ shape — it can range in thickness. Like, a lot. Type 2 waves can be ultra-fine, thick and coarse, or anything in between. This can make choosing the right styling product a bit tricky. If you pick one that’s not nourishing enough, your strands risk not getting enough hydration. If you go with one that’s too heavy, you’ll weigh your waves down.… Read the rest

These 4 Stores Have a Cult Fashion Following—See What Their Owners Are Buying RN

Good fashion has certainly been democratized with the influx of social media, but there’s another element of great personal style that can’t be learned. Case in point? The four women I’m showcasing here: these power players quite literally have their fingers on the pulse of what’s next in the fashion world– they are the owners of some of the world’s coolest boutiques. From buying to merchandising and marketing, growing a small retail business singlehandedly is no easy feat, but these indie shops have gained cult status among editors and tastemakers alike. Quite likely, they’re your favorite fashion girl’s favorite fashion girl, propelling some of the trends and designer names we’ve come to know and discuss often at Who What Wear.  Tapping into their insights, I asked T.A.’s Telsha Anderson, Mr. Larkin’s Casey Blond, LCD’s Geraldine Chung, and 8vo Ático’s Isabella Soto about which spring trends and styles stand out from

What Is Sleep Paralysis? Plus, What You Should Do if You Have It

This article was originally published in February 2019. 

Ever wake up in the middle of the night completely paralyzed but totally cognizant of the fact that you can’t move your limbs? Chances are you’ve experienced sleep paralysis. Here, a breakdown on the ever-so-elusive sleep disorder and what you can do if you have it.

What is sleep paralysis?

Some chalk up sleep paralysis to supernatural causes, or an urban legend dubbed the “night hag.” Well, turns out sleep paralysis is a real thing. It affects approximately 7.6 percent of people worldwide (Kendall Jenner reported experiencing episodes back in 2016), and in Canada alone, it affects “about half of the population at some point in their lives,” says Dr. Brian Murray, head of the division of neurology at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto.

Sleep paralysis occurs during the final sleep stage (we go through a total of five periods … Read the rest
