The Kardashian family has put their mark on everything from beauty brands to thriving tech companies — there aren’t many industries that have gone untouched by the notorious power-wielding Hollywood clan.  One area where they’ve really excelled in is the intimates category, thanks to middle child Kim’s brand Skims. Despite the inevitable hateration surrounding the celeb-driven imprint, it’s responsible for a host of chic, comfortable, and highly functional shapewear, lingerie, loungewear — and if you don’t believe us, just read the reviews. Lucky for us and the brand’s exploding fanbase, Skims just launched an internet-breaking Black Friday sale where a host of...

We all have those people in our lives — ones who say they don't want anything for the holidays. But, come gift-giving season and they're handing you a meticulously wrapped, thoughtful present, and you can't really be empty-handed. What then makes a good gift for the woman who wants nothing? If they have their go-to essentials or favorites, look to upgraded versions of those. Have they been rotating between the same two pairs of sweatpants while working from home? Go with a loungewear gift that includes some fashion-forward joggers, or fluffy socks that don't come in a pack of five....

8 Kitschy-Cool Gift Ideas For Your Most Eclectic Friend

As easy as it is to gift a candle and call it a day, a really great present should, obviously, take factors like the recipient’s personality or interests or ~aesthetic~ into account. It’s Gifting 101. But when the giftee has a propensity for the eclectic, often surrounding themselves with items that are either obscure or downright groovy, it makes hunting down the right gift as difficult as aiming for a bullseye...blindfolded. In other words, impossible.  Which is why we’ve teamed up with Urban Outfitters, the purveyor of all things kitsch and cool, and plucked eight products, including color-clashing flannel, flower-embroidered...

There’s no doubt that 2021’s biggest fashion influencer is Gen Z’s favorite app: TikTok. From the #BamaRush phenomenon to the comeback of Gap’s logo hoodie, when TikTok approves of a fashion trend, it becomes an instant must-have.  So, looking to the app for some guidance as to what to gift the Gen Z or TikTok-obsessed fashion person on your list is not such a bad idea. Take, for example, the Skims Lounge Slip Dress, which the R29 team tested earlier this year; the Hill House nap dress that accompanied us throughout lockdown; and With Jean’s Alexa dress, a viral sensation...

Wish You Could Walk Around With A Duvet? 4 Winter Outfit Ideas That Are Almost The Same Thing

As much as we'd like to go about our days wrapped in a duvet, walking around with a blanket draped over your shoulders is generally frowned upon in anyone over the age of 4. But being an adult means having to improvise, adapt, and overcome, so we've found a socially acceptable alternative: clothes that feel nearly as comfortable as having a duvet draped around you. One brand we've found to be extremely good for this is Cuddl Duds, whose range of ultra-cozy base layers and accessories make any outfit significantly warmer and snugglier. Want proof? Ahead, we've put together four full...

Comfort is synonymous with the holiday season: decking the halls, enjoying meals that bring back blissful childhood memories, reuniting with friends and family. While most of us can appreciate that warm, nostalgic feeling, no one chases those vibes harder than the homebody.  So when it comes time to pick out gifts for the nesters and introverts among us, there are certain presents that just make sense — a snuggly pajama set for a leisurely weekend or a festive washable-silk robe for an indulgent post-shower routine, all of which can be found at ThirdLove.

Once upon a time, people wore metal armor to fight in battle and participate in jousting tournaments. While the Knight’s Tale days are long behind us, lately, designers have been taking some cues from the Middle Ages and presenting chainmail-inspired looks in their collections.  The modern iteration of the trend has been some time in the making. Take, for example, Tom Ford’s Spring 2020 collection, which showcased a slew of glossy breastplates that were strapped to the bodies of the models like futuristic versions of Maximus’ armor in Gladiator. The look was quickly embraced: Zendaya wore the pink version to...

Growing up, Louise Katzovitz had no interest in following fashion trends. Instead, Katzovitz was attracted to off-kilter garments that looked nothing like the clothes she saw on her peers. She remembers the first time she realized her affinity for statement-making pieces: In the early 2000s when she chose to wear a Betsey Johnson bubble skirt dress, which made her “look like a cupcake,” to homecoming. Katzovitz’s personal style has since evolved — she now prefers to wear minimal pieces and the occasional girly dress — but her affinity for larger-than-life fashion continues.   While Katzovitz now showcases her creations to thousands...

If there's one repetitive Christmas song we always vibe with, it's Eartha Kitt crooning her wish list to Santa. From a yacht to Tiffany jewels and a '54 convertible too (light blue), the girl knew how to reach for the stars. We'd imagine our own friends' and family's wish lists aren't too dissimilar — but alas, most of us aren't able to drop fantasy-gift level cash on every one of our giftees. But just because a $2,500 Peloton might be out of the question doesn't mean there aren't plenty of remarkable and thoughtful gifts that will match your budget. Holiday shopping is far...

Holiday gifting is a balancing act. Even if you’re sure you have the perfect pick in mind, it may not always be within your budget, especially if your giftee likes presents of the luxe variety.  While, previously, designer brands may have been outside of our financial reach, in recent years, the luxury resale market has exploded, giving way to a more affordable — not to mention sustainable — way to shop for the high fashion-loving person on your list. With that in mind, we gathered 23 items, from bags and shoes to small leather goods and sunglasses, for the luxe...

Well, would you look at that: It's the changing of the seasons. But as temps cool and the sun sets before you've even closed your computer for the day, you might once again find yourself in need of a hit of dopamine dressing, or putting clothes together in a way that produces happy-making chemicals in your brain. While this was easy to accomplish in spring/summer with bikini tops as shirts (freeing!) and summer camp-inspired jewelry (nostalgia!), cold weather brings a particular set of obstacles, mainly subpar meteorological conditions and a customarily muted color palette. But neither factor is a match...

Designer Anifa Mvuemba is known for her beloved brand, Hanifa, which is full of vibrant and bold colored designs. On Tuesday (Nov 16), she debuted her first in-person Hanifa runway show at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. The show was a huge milestone for Mvuemba’s brand and represents how far it has come — last year she went viral for her virtual show Pink Label Congo on Instagram live and was set to showcase at New York Fashion Week but the show was canceled due to the pandemic. Mvuemba always pays homage to her Congolese roots through her...

Tamsin Blanchard and Lily Fang have never heard of each other, but maybe they should.  Blanchard, age 52, is one of the sustainable fashion OGs: She started writing about fashion’s impact on the environment for British newspapers in the ‘90s, wrote a book on the subject in 2007, and has spent her decades-long career trying to push the industry to embrace better practices, most recently through her work at advocacy group Fashion Revolution. In the last couple of years, Fang, 25, has emerged as one of the most prominent voices on TikTok focused on sustainable fashion, where she educates her...
