Trust Us, Denim Skirts Are Definitely Still Cool

Just as a pair of baby blues is essential to any well-rounded wardrobe, so is a denim skirt. Heck, we’ve been wearing them since the 3rd grade (if not earlier). Now that’s loyalty. And while they’ve gone through quite a few transformations over the last however many years — from acid wash midi styles in the ’80s to Abercrombie & Fitch pleated minis in the early noughties — there’s something to say about the fact that we’ve never quite been able to bid them farewell.

Thankfully, the most recent drop of denim skirts doesn’t look anything like the mini skirts you “rocked” at the mall in middle school.

Great T-shirts have always been a staple in every wardrobe. A good T-shirt is essential for staying fresh while working out, keeping cozy while lounging, and now they’re also a mainstream fashion — and power — statement.

This T-shirt renaissance would have sounded insane a few decades ago. Stand-alone tees used to be a pillar of counterculture fashion, stylishly protesting the collard shirt corporate world. But once Brando and Dean donned their white tees in A Streetcar Named Desire and Rebel Without a Cause, respectively, the T-shirt was changed for good.

Police Face Backlash Over Virus Rules. Enter ‘Violence Interrupters.’

NEW YORK — When Iesha Sekou began passing out surgical masks and disposable gloves in Harlem early in the pandemic, some people laughed and said she was taking things too far. It was an unfamiliar role for Sekou, the founder of a nonprofit that usually works to prevent gang violence.

But as deaths from the virus mounted in predominantly black neighborhoods like the one where Sekou’s group operates, people started chasing her and her workers down the street to get supplies, she said.

Even young skeptics who “had their little theories” about the virus dropped their resistance after Sekou and her volunteers warned them that the police could stop them for not having a mask, or worse, they might get infected and unwittingly pass the disease along to their grandmothers.

“That’s a soft spot that we were able to hit and get them to know that if you don’t want

Already, the storefront is selling notable designers such as 3.1 Phillip Lim, Derek Lam 10 Crosby, and Tabitha Simmons. Fashionista reports that more brands are set to join.
