I live and breathe all things beauty and skincare, so it probably comes as no surprise that I’m always chatting about my ride-or-die products with my friends and co-workers. One product that always comes up (both with my friends and here at Who What Wear) is the SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic. One of the hero ingredients in this beloved serum is Vitamin C, which has powerful brightening and anti-aging benefits. To celebrate this miracle ingredient, SkinCeuticals coined April 4 as Vitamin C Day. And now you can join the party with an exclusive offer from prestige skincare retailer Dermstore.
From March 24 to April 6, you can shop three limited-edition bundles, each starring C E Ferulic. I’m most excited for the Anti-Aging Refine and Smooth bundle, which brightens with C E Ferulic, hydrates with Triple Lipid Restore, and protects with Physical Fusion UV Defense Sunscreen. This is a heaven-sent combo for my sensitive, dry skin.
It gets even better. If you’re a member at Dermstore, you get double the points on SkinCeuticals products, which equates to 10% back on every dollar spent on this high-performance skincare. Achieving glowing skin and getting paid to shop? Yes, please. Keep scrolling to see the bundles and more editor-approved products from SkinCeuticals.
Whether you’re in the midst of wedding planning or simply have a running mood board on Pinterest for fun, we can all agree that preparing for the special event can come at a high price. I won’t even go into the actual event—but when shoes, dresses, and even accessories are starting at $1k, you can guess that things start to add up. But don’t fret at the numbers just yet, because I’m here to help. Despite already have gotten married a few years back, I find myself browsing through the bridal market often. And through my search, I was able to scour a plethora of cool-bride finds that fell under the $500 price point. And whether you want your look to be opulent, understated, or trend-forward, there’s an option for everyone. After all, everyone deserves to feel luxe on their special day.
Not only did I pick out pieces from fashion favorites like Staud and Cult Gaia, but I also scrolled through pages of affordable retailers like Mango to find options that were both beautiful and very budget-friendly. If you’re looking to have that “wow” effect, look no further than the 32 finds below. Featuring party dresses, veils, shoes, and more, this shopping roundup is made for fashion brides out there. I may be already planning a vow renewal just so I have a chance to wear some of them.
French girls are my best source of information, and I always go to them when I need some fresh insight into the current state of fashion. They just know what’s up. So when my mind started to wander into a state of curiosity about accessories I had to dial-up Laberiane Ponton for a quick chat. I thought to myself, Now, what would the French have to say about the accessories that are really worth investing in right now? and she answered.
No lies were told as she described what the French really think about certain accessories. You’d find many of them in an American’s closet, but the French just get it, so I feel I have to share the report. If you’re still holding onto these items, fear not. I worked with Ponton to come up with chic replacements that will make you never think about the things that you tossed again. Happy shopping!
People might disagree with me (especially on TikTok, where edits are constantly made about this topic), but I’m obsessed with Zara‘s product imagery. From the styling to the varying locations and artistic framing, I can’t get enough of it, so much so that I end up buying (and then returning) a great deal of items that I probably wouldn’t have taken an interest in had I gone into a physical store. And of all the pieces I’ve ordered, the ones that most consistently trips me up are jeans.
I have a love-hate relationship with Zara jeans. On one hand, the price-to-quality ratio is out of this world, specifically in the case of its non-stretch, 100% cotton offerings. On the other, I’ve been burned by its jeans with elastic that lose their color and shape too quickly, the varying lengths of its denim silhouettes, and confusing sizing. Since you can’t read reviews of the denim on its website, there’s no real way to know how a style will fit or look IRL without actually trying them on. Knowing that, I decided to take one for the team and try on a ton of the brand’s coolest jeans right now and give you the 411.
Scroll down for the truth about Zara’s jeans.
I’m not big on colorful denim in general, but if I was, I’d want to make sure I was buying pairs that wouldn’t fade with too many washes, and since I’ve experienced the way Zara’s denim can sometimes lose a bit of its color over time, it wouldn’t be my first stop. On the other hand, I’ve had so much success with destroyed or ripped denim at Zara, this pair from TRF included. For non-stretch jeans, they’re so comfortable and soft, and they can easily be dressed up with a nice blouse or top and a pair of point-toe heels. Plus, you don’t have to deal with any hassle from people telling you not to spend loads of money on jeans that are already distressed since the prices at Zara, particularly in the denim section, are so fair.
Continuing with the stretch vs. non-stretch debate, my advice would be to stick with Zara’s wider-leg denim options as opposed to its flare jeans, which almost always have elastic in them. Even with the ’70s-era style coming back in many ways, I still suggest avoiding any silhouettes with a stretchy fit, which most of the Zara flares have. Buy those elsewhere and focus on wide-leg jeans from Zara, which are consistently high quality and flattering. This pair in particular is almost shockingly soft and would be perfect for a summer trip—perhaps to the Outer Banks, the Berkshires, or Maine. They’re definitely giving Dawson’s Creek vibes in the best way.
The low prices on Zara’s jeans make the store a perfect place to start when a new denim trend—like this style, known as a barrel or balloon cut—enters the scene. Test it out, get to know it, and figure out if it’s for you by spending just around $50 as opposed to diving head first into the trend with a $300 to $500 pair of jeans that you might not end up even liking. However, if you’re trying to find that one perfect pair of jeans that you’ll wear, well, forever, I’d suggest splurging on a really well-constructed pair from a denim expert like Levi’s, Frame, Khaite, or Agolde.
We all have seen the recent come back of the classic mall brand Abercombie take over our TikTok feeds with try on hauls and unboxing videos. I must say I see why people are giving the brand a second shot, the products have a completely different feel from the skin tight logo tee shirts and ultra skinny, almost painted on jeans of Abercrombie’s past. This new Abercombie is way more fashionable, minimal and dare I say elevated? After months of watching on the sidelines I decided to take a deep dive into the Abercrombie website and see for myself what new things they have in store for spring and summer. On my deep dive I found so many items that checked all of my boxes. Great linen pieces for summer? Check. Sandals perfect for the beach? Check. Chic day time dresses to wear around New York City? Check.

Spring has sprung and so has Nordstrom’s epic Spring Sale. This means up to 60% off (yes, 60) some amazing finds from every season.
Due to the massive nature of this sale, I’ve done the digging to find the most major jewelry, shoes, and bags you don’t want to miss.

Below, you’ll find my picks for your guilt-free spring shopping enjoyment.
As someone who almost exclusively wears thongs, I have long been convinced I don’t need to update my lingerie drawers. That was until a recent conversation I had with the CEO of Journelle, Sapna Palep. She told me, “Just like you have a bra wardrobe, that has different types of bras that work for different activities and different occasions, you need a bottoms wardrobe too. It is okay to be a superfan of one style and have many of that style, but you should still have a few other styles as options. ” And she’s right.
In order to look as polished and elevated as humanly possible, you need to have a good undergarment collection to match. Underwear is often overlooked and saved for last-minute Christmas gifts but it’s a must-have investment for anyone looking to scale up their wardrobe.
Go on to see which types of underwear Journelle’s CEO thinks we should all own.
Fashion people, including the editors at Who What Wear, routinely gravitate toward Nordstrom for its top-notch assortment of merchandise. The offering of elevated basics is particularly noteworthy with a range of options to suit a variety of styles and budgets. On that note, I asked some of my fellow team members about the items they recently added to their wardrobes. And yes, new wardrobe staples like Levi’s jeans, Open Edit separates, and Topshop pieces from Nordstrom topped the list.
With this in mind, I thought I’d pull together an edit of Nordstrom pieces that I think are fantastic in case you’re looking for a bit of shopping inspiration. The items coming your way could have the power to become new wardrobe staples for you because of their fashionable and highly versatile nature. Keep scrolling for more.
With some upcoming weddings on my calendar this summer, I’ve already been thinking about the looks I’ll be wearing. One of the weddings I’ll be attending has a black tie dress code, which is a welcome excuse to bring out all of the stops and wear a dressed-up look that goes outside of my regular outfits. Less formal than white tie, black tie attire for women is the most common formal dress code for events, which typically translates to floor-length evening gowns, but can also include formal cocktail dresses and elegant suiting.
I’ve been scouring the latest drops from designers to figure out the piece I’ll be wearing and have some front-runners ranging from a sculptural maxi from Christopher Esber to a strapless dupioni dress from Toteme to an open-back design from Proenza Schouler. There are many more contenders, though. Ahead, see the black tie wedding guest dresses that are currently on my shortlist.
Nordstrom is having a massive spring sale and we have never been more ready to shop in our entire lives. Navigating such sales can be quite overwhelming but we are here to make it so easy. If we know you like we think we know you, you’re on the hunt for pieces that are current, versatile, and affordable but look anything but. Well, you’re in luck because we just sourced 28 items from this glorious sale that are exactly that.
Featuring trench coats, ’90s-inspired shoes, and the denim brands all fashion girls are obsessed with, the following items look so luxe, no one will ever guess you bought them on sale. Happy shopping.
