Here’s What a Dermatologist Really Thinks About These 6 Viral Skincare Products

While social media can be a hub for all things fashion and beauty, skincare is a topic that can get a little tricky, especially when certain products start to trend. I’d be lying if I said I haven’t been guilty of succumbing to a viral product only to be disappointed when it didn’t exactly work for my skin. While following trends for clothes and makeup can be an easier feat, with skincare, it’s crucial to be cautious because what works for others may not work for you, and some products may seem like they’re working but can actually cause damage and irritation later on. It’s important to pay close attention to the ingredients before purchasing a product and to consult an expert if possible, especially if you’re facing specific skin concerns. 

Since I’ve been seeing quite a few products circulate around social media that have caught my interest, I thought I’d put them to the expert test and see if the products are actually worth it. I consulted Kiran Mian, DO, FAAD, a board-certified dermatologist based in NYC, who gave me her opinions on six products trending all over social and included some of her tried-and-true favourites as well. Keep scrolling to see what she had to say.

From Ruffles to Rental, These Are the Bridal Trends That Matter in 2021

Due to the reduced nature of weddings, one trend that designers and retailers have repeatedly told me about is the shift to more pared-back looks. Marisa Rooney, who owns Beautiful Brides Liverpool, a curvy bridal boutique, said she pivoted her business when the pandemic hit: “I was receiving enquiries from brides looking for a more casual approach to their day and created my own small in-house collection of dresses with modern and simplistic designs. These styles have been appealing to those who are having micro weddings.” 

Designer Kate Halfpenny has said similar: “We have seen an interesting thing. What’s happened is brides have held their hero dress for their big party but then bought more pared-back looks for smaller ceremonies.”

Senior fashion market editor for Net-a-porter Libby Page also confirmed a shift toward simpler styles: “Over the last year, we have started to notice a shift in our Net-a-Porter brides looking for more modern and effortless pieces, such as suiting, slip dresses and interesting co-ordinates that can be worn on their wedding day—as well as beyond.”

Matchesfashion’s global fashion officer, Natalie Kingham, added to this, saying that “suits and separates have been popular (jackets are up 15% and trousers are up 25% versus last year). Styles including Gabriela Hearst’s three-piece suit, Alessandra Rich’s sweetheart jacket and pencil skirt set and Blaze Milano’s matching jacket and tailored shorts have been highlights.”

However, on the flip side to the simpler looks, Halfpenny reckons there’s going to be a lot of brides embracing more out-there looks. In her recent collection, details such as oversize bows take centre stage, and looking ahead to bridal trends in 2022, designers such as Prabal Gurung showed off more over-the-top stylings with accentuated accessories.

Lyst reports that there’s also a growing interest in feathered gowns, with searches increasing by 128% since January, and there’s a year-on-year increase of 134% of searches for tulle dresses and skirts. Lockdown bride Harriet Hall opted for a bright-pink Molly Goddard dress for her big day, telling me, „A bright-pink tulle gown was the perfect item to get married in that was both wildly over the top and special but also a little bit rebellious. Plus, it was the most fun dress to wear, and it not being white means I can wear it again and again—an added sustainable bonus.”

30 Beyond-Easy Hairstyles That Are Perfect for Summer

When the temperature soars, your hair is usually the last thing you want to think about. I cannot tell you the number of times I’ve planned out the perfect summer outfit from head to toe only to get so hot and bothered that there was simply no other option but to throw my hair up into a messy bun and call it a day. And don’t even get me started on humidity. It’s the nemesis of chic summer hairstyles and can ruin the sleekest of looks in minutes, especially for those of us with textured hair.

However, with a little experimentation and a lot of research, I’ve found that there are a few low-maintenance hairstyles that look good, scream „summer-ready” and are beyond easy to re-create at home. Keep scrolling for 30 of the best easy summer hairstyles for all different hair types, lengths and textures.

21 COS Summer Dresses That Minimalists Will Love

Having spent the last month or two keeping track of any and every summer dress that has drops online, I like to think I’ve become a bit of an authority on the subject, and trust me when I say that COS’ 2021 offering is, so far, leading the charge. This is, however, not a collection for the floral fanatics of the world, because in true COS style, it’s all about clean-lines, colour-blocking appeal and a ‘less-is-more’ mantra. Minimalists, this one is for you.

Trust Me—I’m an Editor: 15 Summer Buys That I Love This Week

As several warehouses and stores shuttered over the past 12 months, the fashion industry faces huge challenges and strains that pose an inevitable threat to businesses. Many of us won’t be shopping in the same way right now, but even a like on Instagram or a message of support can provide a boost for these brands. I certainly don’t want anyone to feel like they have to buy more right now, but at the same time, after working in the fashion industry for nine years, I want to support the brands and pieces that I love and treasure.

As an editor at Who What Wear, I typically spend a lot of time looking at new-in products and so every week, I update this story with the pieces that have caught my eye and that really stand out. I usually have quite a classic style and tend to lean towards more simple pieces, however the excitement about summer and a return to socialising has me craving bright colours and bold prints. Below you’ll find the perfect gingham trousers, a bright pink shirt I think I’m going to buy for myself and the jazziest sunglasses I’ve seen in a long time. 

So whether you’re looking to buy, browse, or discover something new, keep scrolling for pieces I love and think are worth investing in, from the high street to designer labels.

The 6 Underwear Staples That Are Always a Good Investment

We try not to be too prescriptive when it comes to fashion here at Who What Wear, whether that’s in relation to the dress trends hitting the runway or the shoe style proliferating on Instagram. Of course, we’ll never turn down a good dose of style inspo (the more the merrier), but we like to think that we offer you a range of options that you can pick and choose from.

These 6 styles, specifically, are sure to be invaluable whether you’re 18 or 80.

So, if you’re looking to refresh your underwear offering this year, scroll down to see the styles that make up our lingerie capsule.

These Celeb-Approved Trousers Are the Epitome of „Rich and Unbothered”

The Row is known for its elegant, but quiet, take on luxury and its ability to make even the simplest items hugely desirable. If I had to describe the vibe in two words, they would be rich and unbothered. The intention of these clothes is to not initially attract too much attention but give an air of impeccable and superior taste—exactly how the founders, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, look having a coffee on a New York corner in a £2000 coat.

They manage to make simple, unassuming items a thing of beauty thanks to a focus on design and quality, and this year, they have given slouchy, tailored trousers a „The Row-over.” In the S/S 21 collection, they included light-beige trousers that have sharp pleats at the front, wide legs and a high waistband.

They are the kind of slacks you’d see in any accountancy office or golf course in the ’90s, but the amazing tailoring makes this style of summer trousers feel really special and relevant. Unsurprisingly, these have quickly gained a fan base in celebrity circles, and over the past month, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Kendall Jenner and Danielle Haim have all worn a pair. Keep scrolling for the trousers of the moment.

I’m 5’2″, and These Are the Fashion Items I Couldn’t Live Without

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it: It’s one of my favourite sayings in life and in fashion. You’ll catch me going to the same three restaurants all the time, my middle parting has stayed the same for about 10 years, there’s one nail colour I get on repeat, and then there’s the way I dress… What can I say: I’m a creature of habit, and while sometimes it has its downsides, other times it has its pluses.

One example is the topic of today’s post. Once I found that there are certain pieces that worked rather well on my petite frame, I stuck with them, and it’s made both dressing in a way that flatters my figure rather easy over the years. In fact, I’m proud to say that people are often surprised when they find out that I’m only 5’2” because of the way I’m able to elongate my body through my style. Intrigued? To see and shop the items I swear by, just keep scrolling.

Kate Middleton purta pur și simplu trendul pe care l-aș renunța cu fericire Jeans Skinny Pentru

Anul trecut, Kate Middleton și prințul William au fost activi la Zoom apeluri cu organizații de caritate pe tot parcursul pandemiei, dar în cele din urmă au decis să ia spectacolul pe drum. Au început un tur distanțat social mascat cu trenul pentru a sprijini oamenii și programele care au ajutat la eforturile de ajutor COVID-19. Ducele și ducesa de Cambridge au călătorit în Scoția și Țara Galilor – și da, chiar au luat trenul.

Middleton a purtat un total de cinci ținute diferite în timpul turneului, inclusiv niște lookuri festive tematice de Crăciun . Dar preferatul meu a fost când purta pantaloni cu picior larg cu o haină elegantă și tocuri. Sunt obsedat de pantalonii cu picioare largi și aș schimba cu bucurie blugii mei skinny pentru ei, pentru că arată atât de lustruiți, fără a încerca din greu. În plus, sunt minunate pentru a-ți alungi rama atunci când ești purtată cu tocuri. Derulați în jos pentru a vedea fiecare ținută turistică cu trenul și cumpărați singuri tendința cu picior larg.
