The Zara Shoes I Wore to 10 Weddings (and Counting) This Year

While I love investing in a brand new pair of sneakers or boots, my party shoes have almost always been from Zara. Even my wedding shoes (for all five events) were purchased from Zara, and I don't regret a thing about it. They didn't cost a fortune, were comfortable, and I wore them dozens of times long after my big day. I've tried a few designer party shoes in the past and ended the night with blisters and sore feet. Maybe I have yet to try the right pair of designer heels but Zara hasn't let me down thus far, so I'm staying loyal for now.

This Simple, History-Laced Ingredient Is the Key to Your Best-Ever Skin

What if I told you that the key to supremely hydrated, less irritated skin was water? I don’t mean that in the way celebrities mean it when they say the only reason their skin looks so good is because they drink a lot of water (insert eye-roll emoji). I’m talking about thermal water, a mineral-rich ingredient that’s been around for centuries thanks to its skin-soothing properties.

I’m Suddenly Craving All Things Fall—29 Pieces I’m Buying First

Most Wanted is a weekly series in which one editor, staffer, or influencer shares their top 30 must-haves or current wish-list items. As a fashion editor, I’m constantly keeping an eye on what all the cool pieces landing on the market and the key items to buy for the upcoming season.

Meredith Blake Is Trending on TikTok—Copy Her Style With These 31 Pieces

The fashion side of TikTok has been buzzing lately over a once-forgotten fictional character from the 1990s. Who remembers Meredith Blake from The Parent Trap? Serving as the much-needed villain in the sappy tween drama, she also served many chic looks. Some of us first encountered Meredith Blake as children and noticed her comical personality and dry sense of humor, not her wardrobe. Rewatching the film as an adult shows Blake as a whole different kind of character: a style icon.

5 Simple Items That'll Trick People Into Thinking You Spent a Lot on Your Outfit

There’s nothing like that satisfying (and I’ll admit, smug) feeling of putting together an outfit that looks expensive but actually isn't. Over my seven years working in fashion I’ve developed quite a knack for determining what items give an ensemble that overall elevated look.

So This Is the J.Lo Way to Style Bike Shorts and Sneakers

After Jennifer Lopez's surprise Las Vegas wedding and whirlwind honeymoon in Paris, she appears to be taking it a bit easy these days—if her outfit is any indication, that is.

I Shop for a Living, and I Swear Every Dress I'm Seeing RN Looks Like This

I spend a lot of time every day looking through page after page of dresses, constantly searching for the newest ones with the most potential for viral success. And after scrolling past one too many of the same dress styles we've been seeing season after season, I noticed something: All of the ones I was saving looked almost identical. Specifically, they all featured a drop waist, most often accompanied with a V-shaped, corset-like silhouette. Ears perked, I began to do some digging.

Angelina Jolie Wore Flats With Summer's Prettiest (and Most Uncomplicated) Dress

Ever since I saw her in Mr. and Mrs. Smith wearing that white, eyelet two-piece set, I've been completely and irrevocably obsessed with Angelina Jolie's style. (Sure, she probably didn't have a say in that outfit given that it was part of her costume, but that's a discussion for another day.) From her days spent in leather pants and vintage tees to her modern-day rotation of hyper-elegant trousers and dresses, there's pretty much nothing in Jolie's wardrobe that doesn't look impeccable. And her latest outfit is hardly an exception.

I Searched High and Low for the Coolest Trending Pieces—These 30 Delivered

While there's a time and place for Zara and H&M, today we're shopping a bit off the beaten path. Emerging and indie brands make up a good chunk of my current wardrobe, and in between my basics, I like to sprinkle in pieces that are a bit more directional and highly specific (like this wonderfully crinkly corset from one of my favorite independent boutiques, Maimoun). There's also the satisfaction of finding something completely unique that not many other people will have. The bragging rights of being the first to wear something cool is all yours.

These Strategic Bubble Bath Products Improve Your Skin With Zero Effort

Baths can be a divisive topic. Some people swear by them and others swear off them. For me, I used to be in the latter camp. I didn't love that my fingers would get so pruny and I found the whole process all a bit boring. But then I realized that a bath every now and then can be the ultimate form of self-care—and I learned that by setting the right scene (candles, music, maybe a glass of wine), it could actually be a great experience, pruny fingers be damned.

15 Designer Fall Dresses I'd Definitely Splurge On, and 15 I'm Saving On For Now

I've said many times that I'm a picky shopper but when it comes to shopping in the dress department, I take my decisions very seriously. Dresses aren't as versatile as pieces like skirts or pants, so there are a lot of factors I consider before purchasing. While I like breezy dresses for the summertime, I like to have a few in my rotation for fall too. Think ribbed-knit maxis, sleek slip dresses, and poplin dresses in moody tones. Since we're heading towards September I thought it's time to add one or two new styles to my collection.
