Dad jeans: they’re ill-fitting! They’re man/woman-repelling! They’re generally unattractive! And they’re also really, really trendy. Trust me on this one, I live in Brooklyn. Worn with a cute fitted top and a dash of irony, you’d be surprised by just how stylish and versatile they really are. (More importantly: comfortable.) These 10 pairs of dad jeans (mom jeans? boyfriend jeans?) would make a welcome, if unlikely, addition to any wardrobe…

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the drawstring-waist dress is the most universally flattering of all the dresses in all the land. There’s no body type that doesn’t stand to benefit from a cinch, and most importantly, it skims over the issue of what I like to call “barbecue belly” in the summertime without the am I pregnant? effect of an empire waist. The style is also well-suited to the vertically challenged like myself — a drawstring means that you can pull a couple of inches of fabric out from the waist to make a dress, you know, shorter. Check out these 10 summery drawstring-waist dresses, from mini to maxi and everything in between…
Compassionate fashion isn’t just on land — it’s also in the water. You can help save the oceans while you’re in the ocean by supporting sustainable swimwear brands.

Take a look and then get out there in the water!
A denim skirt is one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you’ll ever own. Wear it with flip-flops and a T-shirt to the grocery store, or dress it up with heels and a pretty blouse for a night out. Dark denim pencil skirts totally work at casual offices, while a light wash denim mini looks great with a bikini top at the beach. Wear any denim skirt year round by adding textured tights, boots, and a chunky sweater. I could go on, but you get the idea, right? Click through to check out 10 denim skirts in an array of styles and sizes — all for $75 or less!
