Why Can’t We Just Have Normal Shirts Anymore?

landscape-1502302464-v4-4

What is very weird about fashion right now is that while some people still live in fear of being basic, those among us trying hardest to be cool do so by appropriating the instruments of basic-ness. This can be done by wearing T-shirts from heritage brands like the Gap and Fila, styled to simultaneously transcend their intrinsic historical blandness, because you have to be pretty cool to know about the urinal.

But at the same time, we have another, less labor-intensive way of demonstrating one's extra-ness: renouncing all shirts that don't come sheer, ruffled, printed, embroidered, cropped, ripped, pre-knotted, fringed, off-the-shoulder, underboob-baring, puff-sleeved, EXTREME VOLUMNIZED, with a soup-to-nuts backstory and standard third-row seating, animal-style, extra hot sauce, hold the pickles, please.

13 Sheer Pieces To Rock This Fall

sheer

That is, before it gets too cold

The truth of the matter is summer is coming to a close, with fall awaiting us around the corner. In terms of our wardrobes, this means it’s time for us to dive into fall shopping and perfecting our transitional looks. But hold on—there’s no need to grab oversized knits and wool trousers, at least not just yet. (For us in New York, temperatures don’t really drop until October.) With that being said, for early fall, we’re all about incorporating light, sheer fabrics into the mix. And by sheer, yes, we mean partially see-through. Perfect for layering (or baring it all), sheer fabrics add a touch of whimsy to your fall vibe. We rounded up 13...

The NYLON Guide To Dorm Decor

dorm-deco

Bring your room to the next level

Back to school season is officially in full swing. Before you know it, you’ll be moving out of your parents’ nest and into your dorm room, the blank (like, completely blank), cinder-blocked canvas you’ll be calling home for the next nine months. When it comes to decorating your space, you pretty much have all the creative freedom you need—despite, you know, some obvious limitations, like your dorm’s rules about decorating—to express yourself and really make it your own. (Well, at least, your tiny section of it.) It’s where you’ll be spending a good chunk of the time that’s not spent in class, whether you’re sleeping, studying, snacking, or Netflixing, so you’ll want to make...

Alexis Ren Is The Most Famous Model You’ve Never Heard Of

landscape-1502376475-elle-model-alexis-ren-photo-roy-rochlin
How did 20-year-old model Alexis Ren amass over 10 million Instagram followers in under 500 posts? The California native rose to social media superstardom by sharing a mix of vaguely captioned bikini, bedroom, fitness, and food photos: Writhing on a beach, nestled in hotel linens, stretching sexily, posturing with desserts. Ren's adoring fans flood the comments section with praise and heart-eye emojis, and likes soar to hundreds of thousands. What you won't see on her feed are ads for gummy vitamins, diet tea, or waist trainers. "I just want this to be real. That's my whole thing," she tells me over the phone. "If you're an influencer and that moment is not real for you, then what's the point of it?" It's this...

Huda Beauty Just Unveiled Her Latest Stunning Eyeshadow Palette

810 (10)

And it's so pretty it hurts (as expected)

In 2016, it was all about the Textured Shadows Rose Gold palette, and 2017 is the year Huda Kattan launches her second eyeshadow palette - and predictably, it's amazing.

As expected, when Huda Beauty unveiled the shades of her new 'Desert Dusk' palette last night, her fans went absolutely wild. And we don't blame them.

Huda had already teased the new addition on Instagram, but we had yet to see the amazing colours - until now.

810 (11)
Similar to the rose gold edition, the palette has 18 shades and features a range of hues in four different finishes: Matte, Pearl, Chrome Topper and one Pure Glitter. The colours look insanely beautiful, with a range...

Adidas Originals Drops Its First Campaign With Kendall Jenner

kendall-jenner-adidas1-1502387473

Today, Adidas dropped its latest Originals campaign starring none other than Kendall Jenner, who first announced her ambassadorship for the German sportswear giant with a Twitter post back in May.
It's Jenner's first major endorsement since her infamous Pepsi commercial was pulled in April, but there's nothing particularly new―or original―about casting an Insta-famous supermodel in athletic ads. It's a tried-and-true formula that's already been well exploited by other big brands. In 2017 alone we've witnessed: Gigi Hadid for Reebok, Bella Hadid for Nike, and Kylie Jenner (HBD!) for Puma. But at least with Kendall and Adidas, there's already a family connection with Kanye West's Yeezy collection for Adidas.

Remixed to a cover of Frank Sinatra's "My Way," the new Adidas Original video features Jenner incubating in what appears...
