Among the many reasons sundresses are our go-to as summer approaches, the ease and comfort with which they can be worn and styled is high up there. However, while throwing on a sundress is an undeniably effortless process, figuring out which shoes to wear with it might not come as easy. When your flip-flops feel a little too casual, heels may ruin the ease that makes sundresses so appealing, so it can be hard to figure out what shoes will work, which is why we’ve rounded up the best options. Keep reading to learn about the six types of shoes you’ll want to wear with sundresses all summer long.
For a casual sporty feel, pair your sundress with some classic white sneakers. Already an essential, sneakers somehow work with even the most feminine of dresses. Not only do the shoes add an unexpected twist to a nicer outfit, but they’re … Read the rest
Halston Limited, Halston Luggage, Halston Perfume—the 1970s were all about Halston, the eponymous line, numerous licensing deals, and, of course, the visionary designer himself. Studio 54 was the place to be, and cocaine was the thing to do as Halston, a milliner whose career took off thanks to the pillbox hat Jacqueline Kennedy wore to JFK’s inauguration, pivoted to embrace the modern woman with both ready-to-wear and made-to-order fashion collections.
Akin to Dior’s New Look of the 1940s, Halston embraced a streamlined silhouette with an emphasis on draping, luxury fabrics, and color that set the tone for sensual ’70s style. His rise and fall, particularly his tumultuous personal and professional relationships, are chronicled in the highly anticipated miniseries Halston, which debuts on Netflix today. Produced by Ryan Murphy of American Horror Story and Hollywood renown, this five-episode miniseries has the intense character development, biting dialogue, beautiful scenery, and, of … Read the rest

After more than a year of social distancing, I’ve become a pro at adapting my beauty routine. I’ve swapped my airbrush tans for gradual lotions; switched out my gel nails for something more natural; and have even kept my facials on pause in favor of at-home treatments. If you’ve felt inspired to do the same, then there’s a good chance you’re already familiar with the wizardry of Melanie Simon, aka the genius brainchild behind the Ziip Electrical Facial Device ($495) (and the woman responsible for Jennifer Aniston’s sculpted and glowy skin).
The palm-sized device isn’t your average skin tool. Every … Read the rest

A few years ago, kombucha entered the mainstream, becoming the latest wellness trend stunning the masses with its various gut health benefits. At the forefront of the movement was Health-Ade Kombucha, which launched in 2012 at a local Los Angeles farmer’s market with only 60 bottles, and to the founders’ surprise, they sold out. Behind the new kombucha brand was a team of best friends: husband-and-wife, Justin and Daina Trout, and Vanessa Dew. As the Co-Founder and Chief Sales Officer, Vanessa Dew quickly realized that … Read the rest
Any trend that shows a little skin is one thing, but tacking on the fact that in order to make this trend really work one has to forfeit all undergarments? Yeah, it’s a lot to process, but after scrolling through the images and products below, I am confident you’ll be turned. This risqué detail we’re highlighting today looks like cascading keyholes that are held together by the skin of their teeth. Beneath them? Nothing, of course, hence the necessary removal of all undergarments beforehand. Be it a button closure or a dainty thread, the main objective is to give off the look that your garment is busting at the seams, and considering the fact that you’ll likely not be wearing a bra or underwear should this happen, the look is quite jarring (in a good way).
That’s half the fun of this trend though, isn’t it? These peephole-like cutouts create … Read the rest
A few years ago it seemed like my skin decided to go absolutely haywire all at once. My acne started flaring up almost daily, and my oily skin went into overdrive. Before I had the luxury of tapping into my colleagues of the beauty editor world, my first and primary expert was always my mom. Even now, she’s still my soundboard for when I want the scoop on a new skincare product, and don’t want to bother deep-diving into online reviews. Quite simply, she’s extremely into caring for her skin and making sure it’s in tip-top shape. As a result of her well-curated routine, it’s not uncommon for people to mistake her for someone decades younger.
I have already shared her meticulous face-plumping and glow-inducing regimen here at Who What Wear before, and the response was immense. After receiving so many comments requesting a follow-up, I asked my mother to … Read the rest
Listen, I’m not asking for sympathy, but it is hard to resist online shopping when it’s literally part of your job description. It’s especially tempting when new pieces are as good as the selection that I’ve curated from Everlane and Madewell for this story. The two retailers have truly outdone themselves this summer and are offering a seemingly endless number of great new designs.
At the top of my list is Madewell’s latest collaboration with cult swimwear brand Solid&Striped. The crochet-trimmed bikini, gingham one-piece, and frilly swimsuit are truly too good to resist. At Everlane, the sweatshorts are one of my favorite new arrivals because of how versatile and comfortable they are. Scroll down to shop my favorite just-in items.
