The Edit: 15 Stunning Lingerie Pieces to Add To Your Wardrobe

Lingerie-Edit

As an avid bralette hoarder, I can attest to the dopamine-releasing, feel-good effects of a lingerie purchase. Lacy, delicate and coquettish, they’re pretty enough that they might trump buying shoes. In preparation for Valentine’s Day (or just to rev up your jeans-and-tee look), we’ve culled 15 glamorous lingerie pieces to fit your needs. Best practice: pair it with a swipe of confidence-boosting, red lipstick, and you’ve got one sexy look.

Zara’s New Spring Arrivals Are Insanely Chic (And Affordable!)

We're gushing over these prices

We’re gushing over these prices

We can always trust Zara to stock stylish, on-trend pieces that actually fit in our budgets, but this spring they’ve completely outdone themselves. After perusing the site’s new arrivals, I found tons of luxe-looking clothes and shoes ringing in well under $150: patent smoking loafers that could easily pass as Miu Mius, a minimalist perforated bucket bag and a camel car coat to wear when transitioning seasons. Plus, if you just need to succumb to the allure of warm weather clothes, it’s best to do it on the cheap. Best part? No one will know.

The Edit: 11 Pairs Of Statement Booties To Perk Up Your Look

Statement-Booties

Like a giant sparkly necklace or a fun printed coat, one accessory or clothing item can make an outfit. That’s why your requisite winter look of sweaters and jeans needs to be introduced to the statement bootie. Comfy and easy to slip on, the bold boot doesn’t need to be bright or gaudy to make a splash. Instead, opt for interesting textures (like tufts of fur!), embellishments or a play on classic neutrals (like tortoiseshell and bronze). Getting dressed doesn’t get much easier than this.

The Edit: 14 Fall-Ready Sweaters Under $150

The-Edit-Sweater

It goes without saying that sweaters are the wardrobe workhorse of fall. To prevent rampant outfit repetition or a sky-high dry cleaning bill, we suggest adding a few new cozy pullovers into the mix—without breaking the bank. Here are 14 sweaters under $150 to hold you over until spring. (Psst: Most of them are actually under $100, but we couldn’t resist that cashmere DVF or Theyskens’ Theory.) Happy shopping!

The Edit: 8 Ways to Wear White After Labor Day

The-Edit-white

It’s after Labor Day and guess what? People—very stylish people at that—are still wearing white. Gasp! The stark non-color is the easiest way to get (or fake) a minimalist, modern style. One of my muses? The lovely Anh Mai, the stylist/blogger behind Mai Style Pages, who is almost always in some sort of snowy-white outfit. We recently chatted over coffee about our insane compulsion to purge, purge, purge our closets, all in pursuit of the perfect just-big-enough capsule wardrobe. My advice: Start with at least one of these (the customizable Stan Smiths would be my pick!), get rid of something in your closet that you never wear (perhaps that neon crop top you wore to Made In America, but will realistically never wear again?), and then relish in breaking the fashion rules.

The Guy’s Valentine’s Day Shopping Guide

Vday-Marquee

Valentine’s Day is a tricky gift-giving holiday. After all, it basically requires you to address relationship ambiguity (a big no-no if you’d prefer to stay in ignorant label-less bliss) to ensure adequate gift reciprocation (or reciprocation at all, for that matter). And then there are the established couples that have been-there, done-that. Seriously, how many times can one really gift cologne or socks? Not many. That’s why we compiled 10 fail-proof Valentine’s Day presents for the man in your life. Here, something for everyone from the barista who remembers you like extra foam to the long-standing beau. Bonus: Most of them are Philly finds, so you can make a quick trip before the 14th.

The Grossest, Weirdest Perfumes Ever

The Grossest, Weirdest Perfumes EverPurchasing perfume can be a very intimate experience. Each scent smells differently based on one’s body chemistry. That means that no matter how hard I try, lemon verbena is always going to make me smell like Pine-Sol and not like the citrusy goddess I envision, and I have to accept that.

These gross perfumes are not examples of that. When Be Well editor Emily Leaman tipped us off to Demeter’s pizza perfume, we had a good chuckle. Then we realized this wasn’t the first time someone dreamed up pizza perfume (that honor goes to Pizza Hut), and then we became concerned. What other weird perfumes were out there? How many? And more importantly, who buys them?

Apparently, the answer is a lot. We came across everything from bacon to earthworm fragrances. If you finish reading this blog post ready to detoxify your nostrils, we’ll understand.
