When it comes to summer fabrics, linen is a bonafide MVP. The flax-derived material is lightweight, natural, airy, and perfectly suited for muggy weather. Linen actually pulls away from sweaty skin rather than sticking to it — a unicorn fabric when it comes to summer apparel. The cons, of course, are that linen can often be rough to the touch, prone to wrinkles, and expensive. But, fear not — for this edition of Hype Machine, we found 10 highly rated linen (or linen-blend) dresses that are actually stylish, affordable, soft, and manageable when it comes to pesky wrinkles. Best of...

As we begin to prepare for a new season, we usher in the beginning of spring/summer 2023 fashion week showings. Kicking off in Copenhagen, a place notorious for its uber-stylish inhabitants, Scandi fashion week is quickly becoming the most anticipated of the entire season for its unreal street style. Around every corner and bike path, we saw splashes of bright prints, the clunkiest shoes, plenty of skin, and, of course, an abundance of Barbiecore inspiration. But what we've really come to love about Copenhagen Fashion Week is the style set's ability to mix eccentric statement pieces with hyper-practical fashion. Think:...

20 Reasons To Embrace The Laissez-Faire Attitude Of A Woven Basket Bag

The summer wardrobe is a blissfully carefree one. Unlike its wintry counterpart, tasked with the responsibility of keeping us warm, dry, and somewhat sane, warm-weather clothing need only provide a modicum of functionality and ideally, the conveyance of “good vibes,” whatever that means to you. Summer accessories have a similar flavor profile, and we find ourselves welcoming lightweight, ephemeral materials into the rotation — specifically, straw, sisal, seagrass, paper, and the like. Nowhere are these fibers put to better use than in the woven basket bag. This penultimate summer tote is the perfect picture of vacation-oriented laissez-faire: so minimal and...

Fashion has had a string of odd trends this year, from unnecessary belts to glass handbags and cargo jeans. But if there’s a trend that takes the “Most Unexpected” trophy this summer, it’s denim leg warmers.  If your brain just entered a state of confusion while reading that term, you’re not alone. (In fact, several Refinery29 staffers asked me to repeat myself when I pitched this story.) Half ordinary jeans, half leg warmers that your mom wore in the ‘80s to work out to Jane Fonda videos, these contraptions — mostly made from upcycled denim — have circulated on TikTok...

For your next dip in the pool, glide into the water in a shiny metallic swimsuit. It’s a playful alternative to matte one-tone sets. The subtle shine style is even a 2022 swimwear trend, with celebrities like Kim and Khloé Kardashian, J.Lo, and Lizzo sporting their jazziest metallic swimsuits for the summer. In fact, R29’s fashion director reviewed a sparkling hot-pink one-shoulder from Good American, making it clear that metallic swimwear is a summer favorite you don’t want to sleep on.  It’s why we rounded up the eye-catching bikinis, monokinis, one-pieces, and tankinis below.

Even before launching her namesake brand earlier this year, Puerto Rico-born designer Amanda Forastieri has used fashion as a tool of political and cultural expression. The Drexel University alum’s student collections, titled “La lucha de la Borincana” (A Puerto Rican’s fight) and “Utopia,” delved into themes like Puerto Rico’s femicide crisis and the human-nature relationship. Following her winning the 2020 Supima Design Competition, Forastieri is now intent on building a brand rooted in sustainability, decolonization, and transparency.  For the brand’s debut collection — titled “Fora,” a shortened version of the designer’s last name — Forastieri looked inward for inspiration. “This...

When Yen Pang first visited a Costco in 1999, during a trip from Australia, she was “blown away” by the sight of the vast warehouse filled with giant boxes, house appliances, good-deal electronics, and super-sized groceries: “It was like the best collection of products in one place.” But while Pang, who now lives in the San Francisco area, learned of Costco’s clothing selection soon after that first trip, she wasn’t as fast to jump aboard: “I remember thinking, Why would anyone buy clothes here?” she says. “In my twenties, I just really preferred going to the mall.” It wasn’t until...

Flash-fashion events are like lightning, only lasting a hot second before disappearing into the seasonal ether — but even such fleeting fads can leave a lasting mark. Welcome to Micro Trends, where we explore the latest and greatest of these blink-and-you’ll-miss-them style moments. Somewhere in an alternate universe, Steve Urkel is quaking in his oxfords. The calf-length ribbed crew sock, which had long been associated with the likes of, say, beloved TV nerds or certain sock-reliant athletes, has been fully embraced by the fashion crowd this summer. And, obviously, wearing visible crew socks isn’t a groundbreaking moment, but what seems to...

Make way for the summer’s most dopamine-induced style sensation: Barbiecore. You can’t miss it, as the all-pink aesthetic is dazzling its way into everyone’s hearts. Ever since hot pink was determined to be one of summer 2022’s most vibrant color trends, the radiant hue has been worn by everyone from celebrities to street style stars to models on the runway. All the fashion enthusiasts are thinking pretty in pink for their summer attire, including us. Of course, we must first pay credit to Greta Gerwig’s Barbie movie — slated for 2023.

When I was growing up, scarf tops were a defining trend for cool kids. It was the early 2000s, an era when celebrities like Beyoncé and Christina Aguilera often sported bandanas and scarves as tops, baring a lot of skin and inspiring teens and young adults to do the same. I can still remember the first time I asked my mom if I could wear one when I saw a girl sporting a royal blue scarf top at the supermarket, to which she replied: “You’re too young for that.” So, when the trend came back around this summer — now...

If last year’s crown going-out jewel was the pin top, this year, it’s the crisscross tie top. Both hot girl summer styles feature thin straps, but the former is held together by a teeny tiny pin between the bust while the latter wraps around the waist with an adjustable tie. The slight evolution is a sign the micro-fashion trend won’t be entirely gone anytime soon, so make room in your closet for this dainty but flirty top. It’s the designated going-out top of summer 2022. One of the best perks about this playful design is that it comes in different variations of casual T-shirts,...

Emma Rogue has been an avid thrifter all her life. As a kid, she stopped by a secondhand shop near her gymnastics club in Bedminster, NJ, every weekend to scour the racks for used clothes from brands like Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister instead of buying the pricier models at the local mall. A decade later, she turned her lifelong affinity for thrifting into one of Manhattan’s most popular vintage shops, Rogue. The store, which just celebrated its one-year anniversary, is known not only for its vast selection of ’90s and Y2K clothing, but as one of the city’s most...
