landscape-1481314199-yir-excitingdesigner

The general standards for 2017 have been set remarkably low, but it is when we reach our lowest point that we are open to the greatest change. (Please let this quote from a children's television program be true.) In other words, not everything's gone to sh*t—take the fashion industry/your style game, which is going to be propelled to new heights next year by these 10 brands. We'll be following closely.

If I could own any look from 2016, it would 100 percent be this MA look, built for party girls and baked potatoes alike. That is our shared aesthetic, which is sporty and frilly, hard and soft, and ugly and...

2014176-1481558422-640x0c
The 2017 Golden Globe nominations are in, and to no one's surprise, La La Land leads the pack with an impressive seven nominations, including ones for best lead actor and actress. In the Old Hollywood–inspired musical, aspiring actress Mia, played by Emma Stone, and dedicated jazz musician Sebastian, portrayed by Ryan Gosling, sing and dance their way through a charming love story that chronicles the perils of ambition and love. In one of the standout scenes of the film, depicted on the movie's poster, Mia wears a beautiful canary yellow dress as she dances with Sebastian against the backdrop of a picturesque Los Angles sky. It's an iconic moment in the storyline and one of the best of many colorful fashion moments...

Tales In Retail: Introducing Fashion’s Chicest New E-Tailer

Tyler Joe
"Interning post-college was the easiest decision I've ever made," exclaims Catherine Smith, founder and CEO of Plan de Ville. The site, one of fashion's newest (and most exciting) e-commerce platforms—and dubbed the Retail Rising Star by Fashion Group International—specializes in emerging and undiscovered designers. Smith's business (like any successful one) solves two problems: one, emerging designers struggle to obtain liftoff in the climate of major department stores and e-comm giants who don't have the time or the appetite to invest in risks; and two, the high-end customer and the entry-level luxury consumer are frustrated by the style sameness in their social circles and in the stores they frequent. In other words: why should a woman purchase a designer dress or jeans...

00-holding-best-all-inclusive-resorts
All-inclusive hotels are kind of like cruises: There are people who swear by them and others who would never set foot in one. Or at least, they think they wouldn’t. Not all all-inclusives are built from the same blueprint, and while many are duds, some offer plenty of bucket-list activities and culinary delights to lure even the most jaded traveler. The best part? It’s literally all included in your room rate, which means you don’t have to constantly pull out your wallet. Whether you’re planning a vacation with the whole family, a romantic retreat, or a solo adventure, these six resorts deliver on style and substance. If you want a farm-to-table experience: Blackberry Farm, Tennessee If you like to eat on vacation (who...

How To Keep Your Heater From Ruining Your Skin

image
Winter brings with it beautiful things like wind, freezing temperatures, and dry indoor heat that causes your skin to freak the eff out. If you work in an office, live in a building with radiators, or spend your commute underground, in a puffy down jacket, packed into a tight space, then you know the hell that is temperature fluctuation during this season. It's freezing one minute, suffocatingly stuffy the next. And your skin doesn't like it one bit. Flaking is the least of the problems. You can have cracking, chapping, redness, or skin so raw that it splits and bleeds. That's where dermatologists come in. Welcome to your free appointment. “The heating systems we use are mostly dry air that sucks...

How To Get Dresses 2017

hd-aspect-1481661734-elm-getting-dressed-lead
The only time I buy clothes occurs twice a year, on the fly, in between fashion week shows (my secret's out!). Over the last two decades, I've developed a two-track brain that enables me to navigate seasons with ease. Racing from fall runway shows in the freezing cold of mid-February to buy featherweight clothes I won't wear until May, before rushing back to see models on the runway wearing tweed and knits the rest of us won't sport for at least six months? No problem. - BUT AT THE SPRING 2017 SHOWS THIS PAST SEPTEMBER, THERE WAS A WHOLE NEW SOURCE OF CONFUSION TO CONTEND WITH. - But at the spring 2017 shows this past September, there was a whole new source of confusion...

Shawarma-Spiced Braised Leg Of Lamb
This leg of lamb recipe is impressive, and the Flintstonian-sized bone lends flavor as the meat braises. But if you prefer, a boneless tied leg of lamb is a little more manageable and cooks more quickly.

See London Designer Matty Bovan’s Freaky First-ever Zine

mattybovan2

London designer Matty Bovan invites you into his whimsical world of glitter, neon and maximalism with his newly released zine, entitled Yorkshire Rosé showing a series of photos shot by photographer Lucy Alex Mac, featuring Matty Bovan himself portraying different characters, or as he expresses it, “exaggerated extensions of his own personality”.

Matty Bovan recently graduated from Central Saint Martins and made his debut at London Fashion Week at Fashion East’s SS17 show, with a creative colorful, collection with a playful handcrafted DYI feel that harked back to 2006’s New Rave scene.

The zine also showcases his “goblin-y, gremlin-y” objects, which he created for art, design and fashion pop-up House of Voltaire, and soon will go on sale here.

Dive into his creative madness below:
