These Are the Best Outfits on Instagram, According to Science

Even if you're not a fashion blogger with thousands of trusty Instagram followers, you want to look your best on social media. No surprise, it all starts with your outfit. How do you think all of your favorite street style stars rack up so many likes on their photos? Turns out, there's a method to the madness. Researchers at University of Toronto compiled information from #OOTD and arrived at a formula for the ultimate outfit success: select pastel shades or black separates — whether fancy or casual-chic — and your go-to accessories, including sunglasses, a bag, and heels, and then find a bold background to stand in front of. When you've checked all of these items off your list, your ensemble...

Could Your Skinny Jeans Send You To The Hospital?

For most of us, skinny jeans are our tried-and-true friends. They make us seem impossibly cool with their vaguely rocker vibe, create a long, lean silhouette on those days when we feel bloated—and most importantly, they snugly hold everything in like a fine pair of denim Spanx. But as it turns out, that last aspect of these popular pants may also be exactly what makes them the deadliest piece of clothing in your wardrobe! A 35-year-old Australian woman was recently hospitalized for four days after experiencing muscle damage, swelling and nerve blockages in her legs due to wearing (and squatting in) tight-fitting denim for several hours. The unidentified patient had spent the previous day helping a friend move, which led to squatting for long periods...

A Dating App Lets You Send Strangers Songs

How many enduring romantic pop culture moments are related to songs and music? The boombox outside the window; Margot Tenenbaum getting off the bus in slo-mo; a bus of rock stars and fans belting along to “Tiny Dancer” — it’s a wonder that no dating app had thought to marry music and soulmate-searching together. But now Happn, the French, location-based app, has upped the ante, andallows users to send each other full-length songs off Spotify. In an announcement on Thursday, Happn unveiled the new feature, which also allows users to post songs on their profile. So instead of listing off your favorite artists (let’s say, Beyoncé, Rihanna, and Charli XCX; don’t forget, T-Swift is still off Spotify), you can peacock via curation,...

Sitting in makeup at the Standard East Village for her first shoot, Hari Nef, the 22-year-old transgender model and actress recently signed to IMG Worldwide, is telling us that she’s trying to hang out with Caitlyn Jenner in Los Angeles this summer. “I’m trying to get frozen yogurt with Caitlyn and just talk about girl stuff,” she says.

Plus Size Model Compares Different Pairs Size16 Jeans

Between vanity sizing, inaccurate measuring charts at e-retail destinations, and the fact that no two bodies are the same, figuring out what size you are isn’t an easy feat. When you’re plus-size, things get even trickier. Let’s forget, for a moment, that most brands and stores simply stop producing apparel after a size 12. The reality is that a curvier body has, well, more curves. And those curves aren’t something you can easily measure — let alone put into jeans. I will admit that I am simply not a big denim lover. Whether this is due to my affinity for vintage dresses, or whether it’s a distaste cultivated by the sheer unavailability of comfortable plus-size jeans that fit a 50-inch bum and...

Belly Button Challenge!!

The newest viral challenge asks the question: Can you reach around your back and touch your belly button? It started in China on Weibo — the Chinese equivalent to Twitter — and has been mentioned hundreds of millions of times on both microblogging sites. Most of the participants are young female users. Fitness, nutrition, and psychological experts worry that focusing on a stunt that encourages being extremely skinny is potentially damaging to a person’s psyche. What makes matters worse — being skinny doesn’t make the #bellybuttonchallenge any more doable. Longer arms and flexibility increase a person’s ability to perform the task, as much as having a small waistline.   written by Neal Augenstein, writer for Source –
