We're heading into the winter season, and if there's one season you need to prep your wardrobe for, this is it. With the chance of polar vortexes and epic snowstorms ahead, there are a few things you need to have in your closet. Yes, you will need a warm puffer jacket and a cozy statement sweater, but we aren't all about business here. You also need textured velvet, stackable rings, a tailored blazer, and much more. Ahead, 32 chic winter wardrobe essentials that will cover all of your bases.
Call me corny or call me basic, but I absolutely love being all matchy-matchy with my loved ones. Not only does it take Instagram opportunities to the next level, but I think color-coordinating with your BFF or your SO is super cute, because it sends the message out that that’s your person, and you share the wardrobe to prove it. Holiday season is ideal for this sort of thing, which is why you should totally consider gifting you and your ride or die matching Christmas pajama sets for adults. After all, you're never too old to don a onesie, amirite?
Another Black Friday is in the books. But the holiday season is hardly over for retailers.
Many companies have now shifted resources to focus on their digital operations on Cyber Monday, an annual internet shopping phenomenon that got its start in the early 2000s.
When I’m at home, I toggle between exactly two outfits. Both include a pair of oversized sweatpants with the Victoria’s Secret PINK logo sprawled down the side and a long-sleeved tee with the insignia of a college I’ve never actually attended. If I’m being honest, I don’t even remember how these tees came into my life but it’s been about five years since we bonded so I figure we’re in it for the long haul. Now, I know that neither of these ensembles qualifies as a sexy casual outfit but what can I say? I’m set in my ways (and I spend a lot of time alone, don't judge me).
It's difficult to let go of a favorite bra. Like a good friend, it offers you comfort and support when you need it most. Plus, finding one bra you actually like is such a long process, it's easy to hold onto those that fit you well for a little too long.
If you're anything like me, bras are in regular duty until the underwire pops out, and even then they might get a few more uses. (Tip: put duct tape over the wire to prevent scratches.) Putting up with almost any other garment for so long would be almost unthinkable.
One of the best things about the Black Friday deluge is that you can score deals on certain things that rarely go on sale, like specialty beauty products (um, hello, Sephora deals), running sneakers, or — my personal favorite — fancy lingerie. It’s also a great time to scoop up things you really need but hate paying full-price for, like non-fancy bras and underwear.
To help you find both in one place, we’ve gathered together all the best lingeries sales happening from now through next week. No surprise here: There are quite a few. (Stay tuned for more specific picks as these sales go live!)
Lingerie retail has become a stunningly competitive world online. True & Co., Negative Underwear, ThirdLove and Brayola are just a few of the brands out there promising customers a better fit, a better feel and a better experience buying underwear. But Adore Me, which launched in 2014, set its sights on a much more challenging goal: disrupting the lingerie empire built by L Brands’ Victoria’s Secret.
According to Adore Me, the objective was to help customers break out of the one-size-fits-all shopping experience that left customers who didn’t fit into a narrow set of measurements unable to find what they needed.
Having been blessed with a colossal chest and curves that just won’t quit, I’ve been strapped into an over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder since my 11th birthday. I skipped right past the training-bra stage and settled — extremely awkwardly — into a full C cup just months into middle school. As years passed, my bust grew out of cutesy Victoria’s Secret styles, forcing me to scour through racks of woebegone beige bras, settling for literally anything that appeared to keep my chest in check.
If you're looking for comfort on a budget, this pajama set is one of the best values out there. It's comparable to high-end pairs in terms of softness and quality, and it comes in plus sizes, too.
Facebook Messenger is coming to businesses’ own websites. The social network announced today the launch of a new customer chat plugin into closed beta, which will allow customers to talk directly with businesses on their websites using Messenger, and continue those conversations across web, mobile and tablet devices.
While there are already plenty of customer support and chat plugins for websites on the market, Facebook’s advantage is its platform and reach.
As part of a broader update, Facebook Messenger is now letting businesses carry over customer conversations to their own websites.
Still in closed beta testing, the new chat plugin allows businesses to continue cross-device conversations between Messenger and their respective properties. It supports current platform capabilities from payments to rich media.
