The 29 Best Chelsea Boots for Women Are Hiding at Nordstrom

There are plenty—and we really do mean plenty—of new boot trends to relish in. Slouchy boots have been reigning supreme, cowboy boots are back and bolder than ever, snakeskin booties are the best way to wear the ever-popular animal-print trend, and square-toe boots that hearken back to the ’90s have become increasingly sought-after. But regardless of all the new, fresh footwear crazes the season has ushered in, there’s one timeless style that simply can’t be beat: Chelsea boots.

The appeal of Chelsea boots is in their ever-versatile, no-fuss design. They’re close-fitting, hit at the ankle, and have that signature elastic side panel that’s both practical and stylish. They also tend to have a loop or stretchy fabric on the back, both design details that make slipping in and out of them incredibly easy, which is a huge plus because, well, no one likes trying to cram their foot into … Read more

9 Popular Fashion Trends That Have Roots in Latin Culture

I don’t think anyone would disagree when I say that our fast-paced lives have so many implications for our fashion choices. On the one hand, we’ve never been more connected on a global scale than we are now. The fact that a writer like me in New York can publish a story about what people are wearing in Milan the same day or uncover an emerging Latin-owned brand and shout it out to the world is a beautiful thing. But on the other hand, we consume and wear new trends faster than ever, and it’s often at the detriment of understanding the context that brought said fashion trend to life (aka its backstory).

So today, we’re taking a closer look at the cultural history behind several now-famous fashion items—each of which has roots in Latin culture. It’s not to say that the following nine pieces only originated from Latin culture, … Read more

Dermatologists Say These 3 Products Are Not Worth Splurging on—But These 3 Are

Skincare can be a challenging category to navigate. Even as a beauty editor, I get overwhelmed trying to figure out what skincare products actually work and which premium beauty brands are really worth the money. There has never been so much choice when it comes to shopping for skincare. And while this can be a great thing, it can also make choosing—and finding—products that work for your own skin type and concerns quite tricky.

Scrolling through social media, you’ll often find influencers and beauty lovers raving about their favorite skincare products and brands. While we love a word-of-mouth recommendation, what works for one person might not necessarily work for you. And as a result, you might accumulate products that end up gathering dust that are not suited for your skin, leaving a big hole in your wallet, too. After all, the pretty packaging of an expensive product may draw … Read more

As a fall and winter staple, the timeless knit piece has become a go-to option for fashion lovers everywhere—especially when they find themselves at a loss for what to wear. But the style has also become synonymous with everyday basics, which means standard black-turtleneck outfits can often feel a little lackluster.

From Cher's to Bianca Jagger's, These Are the Most Iconic '70s Makeup Looks

The ’70s were defined by a lot of things, but through some nostalgic hindsight, you could say it was really two things—disco and decadence. It was an era that ushered forth cultural phenoms like Halston and Studio 54. It was an era that launched bell-bottoms and big hair into the collective consciousness. It was also an era of iconic makeup. 

“Similar to women today, women in the ’70s wore makeup that made them feel independent, empowered, and confident,” says Melissa Baker, director of education for Merle Norman Cosmetics. “Specifically though, in the ’70s, brows were thin, lips were glossy, and lashes were long. A woman could use one of those elements, such as glossy lips, as her signature (Ali MacGraw) or all of them at once (Cher) depending on how she wanted to express herself.”

MacGraw and Cher were certainly two of the biggest ’70s beauty icons, but … Read more
