I Finally Found a Breathable Face Mask That Makes Me Feel Stylish

June 29, 2020 at 09:45PM

As states begin to roll out phases of their reopening process, the CDC highly recommends wearing a face mask while out in public, especially when in groups or gatherings. While I’ve been wearing a standard blue non-medical face mask, I’ve still appreciated the iterations fashion brands are rolling out, many of which offer a 1:1 donation initiative. In other words, for every face mask purchased, one is donated to those on the frontlines fighting COVID-19. As a fashion editor, this notion alone gives me reason to support the brands giving back, but at first, I hesitated to choose a favorite.

“It’s not exactly easy to feel excited to wear something enforced due to risk of infection, and it took me awhile to think of my mask as part of my outfit.”

The importance of wearing a face mask should not get lost on any of us; the purpose is to do our part to stop the spread of the virus. But the idea that these cloth coverings are becoming the norm means that designers will employ all their creative ideas to make these items accessories – mixed prints, romantic florals, deadstock fabric from past season collections, you name it! “In the beginning, we were only making white masks, but then I was like, ‘We need to have color,'” Christian Siriano said of his couture team’s transition to making vibrant masks to brighten the mood in his makeshift New York City “factory.”

But here’s the thing: it’s not exactly exciting to wear a mask, and it took me awhile to think of it as part of my outfit. But once Clare V.‘s linen Bowie mask arrived, which I selected for a few reasons (all of which we’ll get to in a moment), I came around to the idea that I have a choice about which mask I wear. I can choose one that speaks to my personality, and in fact, that’s going to be the trend going forward.

I love the feel and vibe of this mask, but before I count the reasons I enjoy wearing it, here’s the number one reason I find it so compelling: right now, Clare V. is encouraging customers to donate to Color of Change with the purchase of the mask, starting the minimum spend at $1. The organization campaigns to end racial and social injustice, and, with every purchase, Clare V. acknowledges the fact that our country is facing two pandemics – the coronavirus and intolerable systemic racism – not just one. If that’s not reason enough to consider this face mask, I do have some thoughts about its comfort and versatility that might just convince you:

  • The look is Parisian-chic, with Clare V.’s signature red lips stitched onto the corner and effortless linen ties.
  • You can tie the bows around your ponytail or bun, just to make your look a bit more playful and have some fun with it.
  • The price point ($19) is friendly enough so that you may feel comfortable adding a donation.
  • The ties actually stay on and don’t clip or bother your ears, like some of the ones with elastic straps I’ve tried.
  • They can be monogrammed and they’re made locally in Los Angeles, where Clare V.’s team continues to donate non-medical masks to essential workers.
  • While the masks do sell out, the company is constantly making more and you can sign up to be notified when they’re restocked.

Shop all the prints and colorways ahead.

I Finally Found a Comfy Pair of Linen Pants and They’re on Sale For $20!

June 29, 2020 at 05:35PM

Lately I’ve been on the hunt for a lightweight pair of comfortable pants that are easy to wear on a day-by-day basis, and something I can even wear during any upcoming road trips. While recently shopping Old Navy for workout clothes, I stumbled upon these Old Navy Mid-Rise Wide-Leg Linen-Blend Pull-On Pants ($20, originally $40) and bought a pair.

Within seconds of trying them on, I knew I needed them. The fit was perfect and flattering, but for me, the real selling point is the material. They’re lightweight and will keep me cool, but thick enough to offer some stability; they don’t feel too thin or see-through. I decided on a black pair because they’re easy to wear with just about anything, but they come in four neutral shades and even some printed choices.

Since I purchased them, I’ve been wearing them while working from home and couldn’t be happier. The black shade doesn’t fade, even though I’ve washed them several times. I love styling them with sneakers or sandals and a comfy tee. So, if you’re headed on a trip soon or just want comfortable pants to wear at home, you’ll want a pair for yourself, trust me. Keep reading to shop all the colors – and hey, at prices this good, maybe you can get more than one. Take a look.

Lizzo’s Version of a Little Black Dress Comes With Iridescent Ruffles and a Daring Leg Slit

June 29, 2020 at 05:10PM

Even without a red carpet, Lizzo served up some serious glamour for this year’s BET Awards. The “Truth Hurts” singer won the title of best female R&B/pop artist during the virtual award show on Sunday night and accepted the honor in a gorgeous black dress that gave us ’80s prom vibes – in the best way possible. A custom Mônot design styled by Marko Monroe, Lizzo’s version of an LBD featured an off-the-shoulder neckline, a leg slit, and voluminous iridescent ruffles on the left side. She paired it with shiny earrings by jewelry designer Natalie Mills and a bedazzled flask.

While wearing the eye-catching dress, Lizzo delivered an acceptance speech reflecting on her past experiences at the BET Awards, all while standing in front of her own album cover art, no less. “Three years ago, I sat in the audience at the BET Awards, and I didn’t win anything, but I still went home and felt like a winner,” she said. “Last year, I performed on the main stage. I didn’t win anything, and I still felt like a winner. This year, I have the honor of winning this prestigious award, but I will always feel like a winner because as long as you’re winning in life, that’s the only trophy you need.” Amen to that!

Ahead, admire Lizzo’s good-as-hell BET Awards look (hah, see what we did there?) and watch her inspiring acceptance speech in full.

These Lightweight Pants Are Perfect For Summer, and on Sale For Only $20

June 29, 2020 at 05:00PM

Recently, I upgraded my loungewear collection with a number of matching sweats. Then, as much as I loved them, I hit a wall and felt like I needed to find some real pants. I think the sentiment I shared with coworkers was something like, “I have got to find some real pants.” Maybe a curse word was in there somewhere, too.

I headed over to Old Navy and scrolled through over 400 pairs of pants until I found a pair that looked like they had promise. The Mid-Rise Soft-Twill Utility Pants ($04, originally $40) were exactly what I was looking for – soft, cute, and perfect for Summer. As soon as they arrived, I ripped them out of the bag and slipped them on because I wanted to know how they stacked up. Here are the details!

Chloe x Halle Show Us How Stylish a Virtual Performance Can Be in Reflective Fabric

June 29, 2020 at 04:20PM

Chloe x Halle performed at the 2020 BET Awards in not one but two expertly crafted outfits constructed by their stylist Zerina Akers. Zerina tapped TLZ L’Femme for some white reflective fabric that seemed to be her favorite out of the two polar-opposite looks.

The girls started the performance singing “Forgive Me” in black latex and fishnet stockings (Chloe in a cutout minidress and Halle in high-waisted shorts, a bralette, and blazer), but “Do It” brought out the low-slung cargos and crop tops with sashes swinging every which way. The mood was very early 2000s for the latter ensemble. Even though these looks were different by design, Chloe x Halle accessorized with sparkling jewels in both scenarios – chunky silver hoops in scene one and crystal-encrusted combat boots in scene two.

“The Girls Next Door vs. The Girls Around The Way. I’ve been dying to use this 3M reflective fabric in a look,” Akers wrote on Instagram, thanking Derek Milton for his expertise in directing the virtual snippet, which was rather flawless from an aesthetic perspective.

Scroll through to see stills from both Chloe x Halle looks, then check out Marsai Martin’s chill ribbed dress from her own at-home red carpet moment and hear Beyoncé’s powerful Humanitarian Award acceptance speech.
