The Beginner’s Guide To Shopping On Instagram

image
These days, Instagram is everything. It's a place to post photos of your dog, brunch, and envy-inducing vacation — but it's also a place for storytelling, activism, self-expression, and, of course, our favorite pastime: shopping. Thanks to the social media platform, our ability to score the clothing and accessories of our dreams is infinite — and that's because tons of indie shops, makers, and designers have tapped the community as a place to flourish, sell their goods, and emphasize their missions. Here, nothing is off-limits; from rare vintage finds to international luxury labels and handmade pieces, Instagram has become the place to discover new brands and get your hands on the items no one else will have. Shopping on Instagram also has...

Infinity Braids Are Weaving Their Way Through Instagram

18950413_1430818290346516_7611878325752954880_n
Despite having natural chocolate-brown hair that I love, I still follow more hair colorists on Instagram than actual people I know. I live vicariously through the bright rainbow-haired people that come up on my Instagram feed and occasionally dream of dyeing my hair like the mother of pearl trend. Megan Schipani, a stylist at Bescene Studios in Rockville, Maryland, is one of my favorites to follow. Better known as @shmeggsandbaconn on Instagram, hair creations with clever names like "spicy watermelon" and "summer quartz" throughly entertain me. Lately, she's been styling her clients' hair into a braid that is much more intricate than the fishtails. She calls them "infinity braids." Turns out, #infinitybraid has about 4,822 posts, and #infinitybraids has another 419....

Swap Your Purse For A Basket, Stat

image
Is an #OOTD really an #OOTD if there isn't a handbag to pull it all together? Really, nothing makes any old jeans-and-a-top outfit pop like a cool carryall — but, there's one phenomenon happening among the ladies of the 'gram (myself included) that's putting our usual totes and crossbodies to shame: Typical leather handbags are being replaced by baskets of all shapes and sizes. From larger pouches to adorable, color-blocked mini-bags, there's something that just feels so summer-y — and since we can't avoid the reference, so very Jane Birkin — about a woven basket. The trend doesn't just take the simplest of outfits and give them a vintage feel — they're also ideal for sitting on the grass at the...

See The Great Barrier Reef — Before It’s Officially GONE

Calling a destination "a place you need to see before you die" sounds like a hyperbolic trope for travel listicles, but the phrase isn't far off when it comes to Australia's Great Barrier Reef. That's because this cluster of corals — the world's largest — is very much in danger, with a large swath of it already irrevocably destroyed. As the breeding ground of a vast collective of exotic fish, birds, reptiles, and mollusks, the reef is an essential ecosystem to the world. However, its deteriorating state is reaching unprecedented levels: Environmentalists have reported that in just the last two years alone, mass bleaching has devastated about two-thirds of the coral reef. With the Trump administration withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement,...

Bella Hadid(@bellahadid)님의 공유 게시물님, 2016 8월 10 오후 6:48 PDT

There are plenty of picturesque beach towns around the world, but Turks and Caicos has got a special allure beyond powdery sands and crystal-clear waves. Home to the third-largest barrier reef system in the world, the destination looks like a legit paradise-on-Earth, with water so clear and stunningly turquoise that renders filters completely obsolete. The white-sand beachfront spans 230 miles, making the islands one of the most exclusive gems in the Caribbean's. These attributes are certainly not lost on some of the most-followed people on Earth. Kylie Jenner threw an epic birthday marathon with her entire squad at a $10,000-a-night Airbnb villa on Providenciales, the main island. The star-studded cast included Bella...

This Is The Polka-dot Blouse You’re Seeing All Over Instagram

Even if you haven't heard of the French fashion brand Jacquemus, you're probably more aware of it than you think; it's one of the go-to designers for some of the most photographed members of the street-style set and also counts Emily Ratajkowski and Kendall Jenner as fans.
The very cool brand – which was founded and is run by the Rei Kawakubo protégé Simon Porte Jacquemus – is known for its directional clothing, which often features exaggerated sleeves and over-the-top detail.
You're likely to recognise one piece more than any other – a polka-dot blouse with exaggerated ruching and puffy sleeves that has been all over our Instagram feeds. It also comes in a wrap-top design that has proven equally popular.

Here's my...

“Hygge” Is Taking Over Summer Makeup Trends, Too

image (1)
Fuzzy socks, crackling fires, piping hot cocoa, soft sweaters — what do all these things have in common? They all fit snuggly into the Danish concept of "hygge," (pronounced hoo-guh), which translates to coziness, comfort, and general conviviality. And they're probably the last thing you want near you when the temperatures rise above 80 degrees. But you can have Hygge in the summer too, says Ole Henriksen, the Denmark-born founder of the synonymous skin-care line. "You sit on your terrace or balcony and create the same environment," he says. For us, we're holding on to Hygge in our beauty routines. First it was with our hair (which is still going strong) and now our makeup is decidedly moving toward the warmer...
