These Basic Nail Colours Look Good on Everyone

Let me tell you something: Sixteen-year-old me loved black nail polish. I couldn’t tell you how many bottles of Rimmel London’s Black Cab I went through. So I’m delighted that black remains top of the basic nail colour leaderboard for an instantly chic mani option. „Dark navy and black have been very popular over the winter, projecting a cool New York vibe,” Huber-Millet told us.

It’s true that deep nails seem to be popular with our American friends (Kerry Washington and Meghan Markle have both stepped out in sultry shades). If black feels a little too harsh for you, don’t worry. Most brands offer deep navy blues, forest greens and wine reds so you can get a similar effect without feeling too goth.

I’m incredibly lucky that I get sent some of the most premium beauty products on the market to try out as part of my job. From £205 moisturisers to £109 facial steamers, I’ve had the chance to test some of the most luxurious formulations and beauty tools in the UK to find out what’s worth the hype. So does expensive always equal best? In a word, no. Despite having access to extravagant products and high-end beauty brands, there are tons of affordable options that rival their more expensive counterparts.

I’ve Been Wearing Running Leggings for 10 Years—These Are the Best

In what will be absolutely no surprise whatsoever, gym wear has seen a boom in the past year. There were reports that the UK could „even face shortages” of sports shoes, trainers and leggings thanks to high demand during the pandemic. Clearly we all became fanatic about working out this past year when it has been one of the only activities we can do. Luckily, as I already run outside, I had my kit ready to go, and I now consider myself something of an expert in what to wear. I’ve been running for over a decade, and so I’ve already honed my running gear down to certain pieces and brands that I rate (including one of the best sports bras I’ve ever worn). Today though, I want to tell you about the best running leggings around—Nike’s running leggings for women.

37 High-Street Pieces That Are Destined for Cult Status

There used to be a time when all the new season items would arrive on the high street in the same week, if not within days of each other, however now the new-in sections are steadily updated and so are less defined by seasons. This means you might not have noticed that this week is when we have seen the real shift towards spring, with many of the complete spring collections now available to buy. This has been a focus for us on Who What Wear over the past seven days, as our editors have been sorting through the thousands of products to bring you concise edits of the best of the best items on the high street right now.

Our editors might be able to spot a cult high street buy a mile off, but we also like to crowdsource and see what other people are loving.

Some themes have come up, with a strong love for Arket’s spring collection, quilted coats and vests and a floral spring dress. But we were careful to pick people who had really different personal styles, so whether you are a jeans and a T-shirt kind of girl, or prefer to dress like a rainbow, we’re sure there will be an item you love below.

M-am mutat la Londra peste un deceniu în urmă – așa s-a schimbat Stilul meu

Venirea în Marea Britanie ca adolescent din Singapore nu a fost doar o aventură; a fost, de asemenea, o șansă pentru mine să dezvolt un aspect cu totul nou. Orașul meu natal este mai cunoscut acum pentru că a fost decorul Crazy Rich Asians , dar pe atunci se simțea mai degrabă ca un backwater somnoros decât o destinație de stil. În orice caz, eram prea ocupat să folosesc unghiile pentru a elibera discret revistele importate din pungile de securitate din Borders – librăria cu cea mai mare ofertă de titluri de modă importate de pe insulă – ca să observ. Aș face contrabanda britanică Vogue , The Face , Dazed & Confused și iD pe culoarul pentru cărți pentru copii și arat prin fiecare Numărul stătea pe o pernă de podea pentru copii, ignorând privirile morții copiilor de cinci ani.

În aceste zile îmi permit să îmi cumpăr propriile reviste, dar nu voi uita niciodată fereastra pe care acele după-amiezii din Borders le-au deschis lumii. Am citit despre designeri britanici precum Alexander McQueen și Vivienne Westwood, scene muzicale precum garage și rave și petreceri de modă extravagante care au participat într-o zonă misterioasă, puțin cunoscută, cunoscută sub numele de „Dalston”. M-aș uita la un articol despre o formație puțin cunoscută numită The Prodigy și mi-am dat seama că au trecut ore și librăria era pe punctul de a se închide, obligându-mă să mă grăbesc înapoi la secțiunea revistei pentru a returna numerele.
