I Put Plus-Size Activewear From Popular Brands To The Test

Years of body negativity brought on by the latest fad diet or fitness craze have made my relationship with exercise a rocky one. Growing up, I was surrounded by “Beach Body” boot camps and personal training programs that signified largeness as something to be lost. But, years later in adulthood, I found positivity in hiking and a sense of calm in yoga flows. I discovered that breaking a sweat could be an enjoyable escape instead of about how many calories I might burn. Since I spent so much time feeling like physical activity was a punishment, I didn’t jump to spend my money on new fitness clothes — plus, options for plus-size retailers who do it right were already limited which made finding quality brands with inclusive activewear tricky. But, as the industry began to acknowledge bigger bodies, well-made and fashionable options started to emerge in the plus-size activewear space. And, I was lucky enough to receive a handful of such styles from the most popular brands to try on myself for size, fit, and feel. Although my relationship with exercise today is not completely healed, it’s become one with a very real glimmer of hope as I learn to be thankful for my body and appreciative of all it does for me. So, without further ado, scroll through to learn about my favorite activewear offerings for fat folk with stand-out product reviews the brands I tried on IRL and loved — I’ll continue to add more styles worth sharing with you as I discover them. Let’s say goodbye to the duds we once wore in darker times and hello to more size-equitable styles of sports bras that won’t dig, trendy printed sets, and unique silhouettes meant to highlight our bodies instead of hiding them.

Old Navy

Size Range XS-4XI was kindly gifted some pieces from Old Navy’s active line. R29 readers to really be a fan of their offerings, so I had to see what all the hype was about. I received a medium support sports bra and a pair of light compression leggings from their fan-favorite PowerSoft line of activewear. It’s marketed as “peachy-soft” and very comfortable. I definitely agree with this description: It’s smooth and very easy to move in and didn’t feel cheap or scratchy despite being the most budget-friendly option I’ve reviewed for this piece. If you want something ultra-compressive, however, the leggings might not be for you because they are pretty light. However, I don’t see that as an issue as it added to the non-restrictive feeling when wearing it. For the bra, I took out the removable cups because my boobs are on the bigger side. Also, I’m around 5’9″ and the leggings were full-length on me. I did a series of exercises while wearing this active set including jogging, deep squats, high knees, and stretching. The medium support bra surprisingly held my boobs down pretty well, so I definitely felt supported with slightly higher intensity movement activities. Although the fabric was slightly thinner than the fabric Athleta (Old Navy’s sister brand) uses, the four-way stretch in the fabric works very well as all these movements happened so seamlessly. While doing these exercises, there was some adjusting of the leggings, but it was pretty minimal. For the price and quality, Old Navy active makes a product that’s genuinely hard to beat. I do really love Athleta, but if you are looking for a solid budget option this is it. Shop Old Navy

Girlfriend Collective

Size Range: XXS-7XL Girlfriend Collective has totally revolutionized the activewear space with its eco-friendly, size-inclusive apparel. I tried a few items from Girlfriend and fell in love with this black Skort and Paloma bra set, both in a 4XL. I’m usually a 2X in most of my other activewear, so this tells me that GF collective runs pretty small. I’m not sure how the sizing is on straight-sized consumers, but plus consumers should really look at the clothing chart and follow that. For the best fit, GC recommends measuring yourself and doesn’t offer a conversion chart for pants sizes, so a little bit of work is involved if you’re unsure what size to go with. But it’s pretty accurate! Upon opening the recyclable packaging, the material felt a little on the stiffer side but was still really easy to slip right on. You wouldn’t know that it’s made from upcycled plastic bottles. I loved the fit and look of the skort! It’s genuinely so cute and falls on my body really nicely. I’d even wear it as a mini skirt for a night of dancing. It held up during activities such as squats, high knees, and running in place. The shorts on the inside had to be adjusted slightly in between some of those activities; I’d also go ahead and use Megababe to prevent any further chafing from the thigh area. As for the Paloma bra, I think I could have sized down for more compression. It was a little loose around the bottom band (I’m a 42DDD in regular bras).  I’d avoid any workouts above low-moderate impact with this bra. Shop Girlfriend Collective

Athleta

Size Range: XXS-3X or 00-26 As a certified B-Corp, Athleta prioritizes people just as much as business. It definitely shows in each garment with the obvious care they took to create the perfect fit. I tried on was the Elation Bra and the Elation 7/8 Tight. The fabric felt sturdy and thick while also being incredibly smooth and soft to touch and on the body. The ultra-high rise on the Elation Tight is probably the highest I’ve ever experienced, and the set is compressive without feeling restrictive. There’s a pretty deep waistband pocket in the back that you can slide your keys and wallet into as well. The Elation bra curved perfectly around my back rolls and gave me the perfect lift. The thoughtfulness of the design really shines through. The leggings passed the squat test with flying colors with a waistband that doesn’t dig. Although the elation bra and tight is recommended for lower impact workouts like yoga and Pilates, they held up when I did some high knees and light jogging in place. This was definitely my favorite set among all the ones I’ve reviewed, and the print on this is epic! Although, they do have this same set in a solid colors as well.Shop Athleta

Universal Standard

Size Range: 00-40Universal Standard is known for their wide range of sizes and perfecting everyday classic staples, but they are quickly making a name for themselves in Activewear. I tried the Next-to-Naked bodysuit in black, and just like the name, it feels akin to a second skin. It has a sort of barely-there feel with little to no compression. It’s buttery soft and honestly can be used for really any workout you’d like. However, if you are doing something more intensive I recommend wearing a sports bra as there is no hold or lift with this bodysuit. If you are someone that prefers wearing no clothes, I’d have to say this is the next best thing! Besides my Storm costume from a few Halloweens back, I’ve never owned a bodysuit. This piece is definitely something I’d work out in, but I can also imagine myself wearing this with an oversized shacket and platform converse for a cute casual outfit. Shop Universal Standard

Beyond Yoga

Size Range: XXS-4X or 00-28Beyond Yoga is definitely a force with their custom Space Dye Performance fabric known to be incredibly smooth with a unique texture. I tried on the Spacedye Slim Racerback Cropped Tank and the Space Dye Caught In The Midi High Waisted Legging in Purple Pop. First off, I was immediately drawn to the fun bright color! If you can get your hand on this seasonal favorite, I highly recommend it. You’ll be the center of attention in the best way! This set would be good for low-intensity exercises as the top does not hold down your boobs enough to wear it on a run if you are busty. However, it is incredibly comfortable. While doing squats, high knees, and running in place, I did have to adjust the leggings every now and then. Although it wasn’t that bad, it’s something to keep in mind. Shop Beyond Yoga

Fabletics

Size Range: XXS-4X or 00-24Fabletics is known for their trendy workout clothes and celeb partnerships. I was excited to get my hands on some of these goods because I’ve seen lots of Fabletics love on Instagram. I tried the All day Everyday Bra and Oasis High Waisted Pocket Legging in a 3X. I love how these leggings have cool side pockets that can definitely fit your phone or keys. The strappiness of the bra was very cute. However, the bra itself was not as compressive as I’d like. I’d probably have to size down to get the fit I’d want to do slightly more intensive activities. There was a little adjusting of the leggings while I did squats, high knees, and running in place. I’d double-check on sizing for Fabletics and even read reviews because the sizing could be a little off compared to what the overall size chart says depending on the garment. Overall the pieces were standard for activewear, but the cool pattern and design were what stood out the most. Shop Fabletics

Super Fit Hero

Size Range: L-7XL or 12-42SuperFit Hero has revolutionized the activewear space in more than one way. Not only do they exclusively cater to a size large and up, but the brand’s use of Plus Models on the larger end of the plus-size of the spectrum also shows how seriously SuperFit Hero takes representation. I tried on the Superhold pocket bike short and Superhold bra in their Air Fit Size (2X or 18-20). The Superhold fabric is very compressive in all the right way. There is zero gaping and the bike shorts hold up during squats, stretches, high knees, and jogging. I love this color blocking in the set that I reviewed, but Superhold goods are also available in solid colors as well. Shop Super Fit Hero

Lululemon

Size Range: 0-20Lululemon was quite late to the extended-sized workout-wear party. Although its sizing is limited, the brand does make a solid pair of leggings. It’s worth noting that the top pictured in my snapshot above is not from Lululemon, as I did not fit into any of the bras that were sent over. All of this goes to say that further extending on sizes is needed to cater to more bodies on the brand’s part!Although the Align Pant was my favorite in my initial review of their extended sizing. I’d have to say the Invigorate High-Rise Tights are my favorite pair of leggings from Lululemon now. I’ve owned these for a couple of months now, and I’ve worked out in them AND also wear them to run errands. These are more compressive than the Aligns and hold their original shape more, too. There is still adjusting needed to the waistband after squats, high knees, and running in place — but all in all, I cannot lie, they’re a solid pair of plus-size leggings. Shop Lululemon

Supportive Plus-Size Sports Bras That Won't Chafe

My Honest Thoughts On Lululemon's Extended Sizes

What Black Creators Can Learn From Signed, Blake

Before content creation became a legitimate career field, Black women have been influencing the world as we know it. Our fashion, style, and make-up looks turn into global trends that we end up not being credited for. Now, in the creative space, Black influencers are making sure that brands know their worth and add tax. R29Unbothered spoke to Chicago based lifestyle content creator, Blake Gifford, aka Signed, Blake, about her journey as a creator, and how her law degree has helped her navigate her brand partnerships, the community (more like family) she’s built with her audience, and her popular Amazon drop collections.

A little over a decade ago, as Gifford was graduating college and her friends were starting their new jobs or going off to law school, she began to blog about her journey and what she envisioned for the next stage in her life. “I didn’t have a ton of money, so I would shop at thrift stores a lot and share [on my blog] how I would tweak [an outfit] and make it my own,” Gifford says.

When Instagram launched, Blake would share photos of her outfits on the platform and her blog organically started growing. While continuing to blog her life, Blake also went to law school and had her sights on becoming a defense attorney but soon realized after interning with the Bronx Defenders that the work was very emotional and personal. “I didn’t think I could do it and maintain a healthy headspace without reopening my own wounds [from] growing up in foster care,” Gifford says. Gifford had been in foster care from age eight through eighteen. She decided to pivot into intellectual property law since it would be useful to her as an influencer. Before she had a management team, Blake would look over all of her contracts and negotiate her own deals, which made her feel more confident in pushing back on terms.

“It’s important for brands to partner with Black creatives but also pay us what we’re worth, because like it or not, we drive the culture. End of discussion.”

Signed, Blake

As a Black creator, Gifford has had to advocate for herself, considering brands have a tendency to pay Black influencers less than their white counterparts. The pay disparity is so pervasive that, last year, Adesuwa Ajayi launched the Instagram page Influencer Pay Gap, exposing brands and how little they pay Black creators compared to white creators. Gifford says, “It’s important for brands to partner with Black creatives but also pay us what we’re worth, because like it or not, we drive the culture. End of discussion. We drive the culture, so if you want to be on top of what’s happening at the moment, you need Black content creators,” she says.

Gifford has been able to set trends and move culture because the community she’s built over the past decade is invested in her as a creator. Alongside fashion, Blake also shares her cleaning and organization habits under the hashtag #NeatFreaky, as well as her apartment renovations, and her adventures with her lovely dog Bash. “Ten plus years ago, no one was making money doing this at all and I didn’t get into it with the goal of making money,” Gifford shares. “I got into it with the goal of finding a community…I feel very indebted to my community because they found me during a time when I was really struggling with my own self-esteem,” she says. “I always say people don’t buy products, they buy people and the fact that I’m able to sell products is because people are invested in me as a person.”

This, she says, is what sets Black influencers apart.“Community is within our culture of being Black, we are raised where everything is a village and so I think Black people innately bring that mindset to what it means to be a content creator in a way that is really unique and special,” she says. Gifford’s connection with her community was particularly noticeable with her fashion collaboration with Amazon. The Drop is Amazon’s fashion line that works specifically with content creators on a seven-piece capsule collection. Noticing a gap in the market, Gifford literally slid in Amazon’s DMs. 

“I noticed that all the content creators were white, thin, and mostly New York City-based,” says Gifford. “So I slid into their DMs and simply told them I should be next and they responded, ‘Email us, we’d love to talk about it,’ and within 24 hours of my initial email I had a contract on my desk.”

As Gifford designed her luxurious yet affordable capsule collection, she included her audience in the process by posting on Instagram stories and creating polls on what her audience wanted to see. She implemented the feedback she received in the final styles, patterns, and fabric options she picked. 

Gifford also advocated for the change she wanted to see, specifically with diversity and size inclusion. “I told [Amazon], there are not enough plus-size women and Black creators and that they need to open those doors.” Her first drop was pushed back slightly due to the pandemic and it worked out in her favor because she was able to make sure the collection had an inclusive size range (XXS – 3X). “I also acknowledge my body type privilege and being on one extreme end of the size chart has let me know in a really small way what it feels like to shop and not find anything that fits, so I can only imagine what that feels like for plus-size women,” Gifford says.

It’s her commitment to wanting everyone to feel beautiful in her clothes that drove her decision to also incorporate affordable luxury and high-quality fabrics in her collection.

“To me, luxury exists at every level, it’s not about the price of things but how I feel,” Gifford says. “Black luxury specifically [is] about finding and radiating joy in a world that wants us to be anything but happy. I try to infuse that into every aspect of my life.”

27 Black Influencers That You Should Be Following

The Leather Harness Is The Newest — And Most NSFW — Workwear Trend

There’s an image that comes to mind when you think “corporate dress code.” I bet it includes some version of a suit and a button-down shirt. But this season, workwear is adding a BDSM twist to its roster. It’s take-your-leather-harness-to-work season, as evidenced by the fall 2021 and spring 2022 collections that made a case for pairing tailored sets with the body accessory. 

After almost two years of working from home, workwear has started to look different, with “business comfort” — think: tailored joggers and sneakers paired with suits — set to take off as we return to the office. For those who are still in a panic about what to wear IRL, rest assured that tailoring remains one of the biggest trends for women. But this is not your grandfather’s suit. Instead, brands are offering new takes with intentionally oversized silhouettes, two-tone blazers, and mini skirt suits.

Other designers are suggesting a more NSFW approach to workwear.

For its 100th anniversary collection, Gucci showed a lineup that included equestrian nods, with leather whips, polo riding hats, knee-high boots, and body harnesses. Creative director Alessandro Michele paired the latter with velvet monochrome suits, corseted dresses, and flowy frocks that could seamlessly go from a conference meeting to a happy hour-turned-dinner. For fall 2021, Dion Lee showed black belted harnesses as crop tops, white asymmetrical bib-like pieces over flowy tops, and mesh cut-out mini dresses with corseting. Meanwhile, Dior’s Cruise 2022 showed a myriad of ladylike dresses and collegiate button-downs and turtlenecks paired with, you guessed, leather harnesses. 

It might seem doubtful that people will wear leather accessories to work. But harnesses have already shown their mainstream potential. Born out of the ‘80s and ‘90s, leather harnesses have long been associated with kink-adjacent fashion. In the early 2010s though, they made their runway debut, with designers like Herve Leger and Prabal Gurung embracing the look. Reminder: This was the era of Fifty Shades of Grey, the books-turned-movies that brought conversations around BDSM culture to the mainstream (and made Seattle’s corporate culture hot!).

A few years ago, the leather harness made another mainstream comeback: Celebrities like Timotheé Chalamet, Michael B. Jordan, and Orlando Bloom donned iterations of harness-like accessories — which the Call Me By Your Name actor tried to pass as a bib (yeah, right!) — on the red carpet, paired with tailored button-down shirts. On the other end, mass brands like Zara welcomed the accessory into their ranks. 

But while fall trends have announced the return of the leather harness, the spring 2022 runways proved that it’s going nowhere. Instead, it’s making its way to workwear now. For proof, look no further than LaPointe’s latest collection inspired. For the spring 2022 presentation, inspired by rave culture, the brand’s designer Sally LaPointe turned a downtown storefront into a club, complete with ear-busting techno and neon lights. The selection included monochrome suits to match, featuring feather details and topped off with harnesses. 

It’s clear that, after spending a year in lockdown, we’re not willing to stick by the rules. Just in time for the Great Resignation and the arrival of subversive basics, the era of boring pantsuits and corporate briefcases is over. Having spent the majority of last year at home, we’re also no longer wasting any time — going from the conference room to the club with no stops in between. 

Get started with some harness options, below.

Here’s Why The Slouch Sock Is Going Viral On Amazon

It seems like for some, the early-aughts Y2K fashion trends aren’t throwing back far enough. For many yesteryear style chasers, the ‘80s slouch sock is moreso hitting the mark. Amazon has astronomical numbers and reviews from customers to prove that this trend is sought-after and skyrocketing. But what’s up with slouch socks — and why are they coming back now

There are a few factors going on. First, as with all fashion trends, anything old is cool again — and celebs like Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin are seriously leaning into the dorky-but-chic aesthetic of wearing socks that intentionally gather at the ankles. While the most on-the-nose look would have to be slouch socks over leggings (just like ‘80s-era women in jazzercise and step aerobics classes used to do), these days the slouch sock is also charming with, say, a pair of chunky loafers or dad sneakers (a la off-duty Princess Diana, who continues to resurface as a forever style icon).

Secondly, as the sock blog Sock.co astutely points out, slouch socks are “gaining popularity […] especially in Cosplay and Manga culture,” in which kawaii fans like to emulate their beloved cartoons of school-uniform girlies who can’t keep their knee-highs up. And if I can also make a third hypothesis on why slouch socks are in a viral spiral, I’d say these are the exact kind of affordable comfort buy that’s soothing for these still-in-a-pandemic times. Plus, they’re ever so fitting for the forthcoming shut-in winter days, which you may as well prepare for now.

But why not just wear regular socks and push them down, you may ask? While no one’s stopping you from hacking the system with your high school soccer socks, the main difference here lies in the level of elasticity. Slouch socks are purposely designed to droop so you can expect these to be softer, plushier, and not as grippy on the calves. If compression socks are on one end of the sock-o-meter spectrum in terms of tightness, slouch socks are on the opposite end.

Down to try this ’80s sock trend for yourself? Ahead, here are the best slouch socks (according to actual reviewers who bought them) that you can score on Amazon right now.

Sorry To Report: High-Low Hemlines Are Back
Giambattista Valli, Summer 2022, women, pret a porter

The spring 2022 runways signaled the return of many trends from the 2010s. From peplum to saturated colorblocking, it seems that — following the Y2K trend boom this year — the Twilight-era styles are now finding their way out of Tumblr posts. This includes high-low hemlines, or “mullet skirts,” as they’ve come to be called by those who’ve since sworn off the infamous silhouette. 

Between 2010 and 2015, part-mini, party-ball gown skirts — that, as the nickname suggests, bear resemblance to the questionable hairstyle sported by the likes of Joe Exotic and Hulk Hogan — reigned. Celebs like Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and Lily Collins sported the trend on the red carpet. Meanwhile, on social media, bloggers paraded the skirts everywhere from Coachella to their favorite coffee shop. 

Although the mullet skirt was the It-trend of the early 2010s, the silhouette was endlessly mocked for its perceived identity crisis: It was too formal to be a dance floor-appropriate mini, but it wasn’t long enough to be considered a black-tie style. Whenever the wind hit the skirt, the train would pop back like a superhero’s cape making anyone look like they were about to jet-set off to save the world. Regardless, I, like many at the time, was obsessed with the trend. I even bought a high-low dress for my high school graduation.

Sometime in the mid-2010s, the mullet skirt was exposed for what it really was: a questionable and cringe-y fad. Skirt symmetry was soon restored, Tumblr was ditched for Instagram, and other relics of the era (Jeffrey Campbell Litas, American Apparel Disco dress, etc.) were shelved. My graduation dress seemed like an unfortunate relic of a time of poor judgment. So I donated it, figuring the trend would never come back.

But I was wrong.

The return has been some time in the making. Designers like Mugler and Zuhair Murad included high-low skirts in their spring and fall 2021 lineups, while others like Christian Siriano, Rochas, Cynthia Rowley, Giambattista Valli, and Rodarte solidified the comeback by adding the trend to their spring 2022 offerings. Even at the 2021 Met Gala, high-low skirts had a moment. Donatella Versace wore a white corseted Versace dress with a ruffled high-low skirt, while Diane Kruger donned a neon green frock with a mini balloon-shaped front and a long hemline in the back. For the after-party, Kendall Jenner sported a red Givenchy dress that included an embellished mini with a long train bow attached. 

The good news is, the high-low skirts of today are nothing like their mullet-like predecessors. Instead, they embrace asymmetry without being gimmicky.

Christian Siriano showcased the elegant side of the trend with a black skirt featuring a ruffled asymmetrical slit and a neon orange mini dress with a lopsided hem. Meanwhile, Cynthia Rowley showed a black long-sleeved mini dress that flourished into a feathered ball gown skirt more fit for an Oscars after-party than a night at Coachella. At Rochas, high-low skirts offered drama, with a black black-and-white printed mini dress opening up into a full-blow ruffled train. This time around, the high-low skirt is not trying so hard to grab attention for the sake of attention; instead, the hemlines seamlessly ascend from top to bottom, rather than make abrupt drops from the penthouse to the lobby like a sartorial version of Disney’s Tower of Terror. 

It’s worth noting that high-low hemlines are emerging at a time when mini dresses and mini skirts are taking over fashion. For people who are not into skirts so short that they might as well be belts — see: the recent Miu Miu micro-mini skirts — high-low hemlines offer a way to be on-trend without completely exposing, well, everything.

Then there is the influence of TikTok. While Y2K trends synonymous with the pop-punk and Hollywood’s paparazzi eras have been experiencing popularity for a while, recently, the hashtags #2010sfashion and #2010snostalgia popped up on the app, where people shared thrift hauls featuring items from the last decade that are now fashionable again. Yes, high-low skirts are among the mix.

Still, high-low skirts are more than just a nostalgia trend — they’re a fit for our unprecedented, chaotic times. The past year has prompted trends like extreme cutouts that exemplified just how many layers we’ve wanted to shed during this pandemic that refuses to let up. Then there were the subversive basics that saw people ditch symmetry and old-fashioned basics as a way to rebel against the status quo.

Maybe high-low hemlines are yet another reminder that the balance is all off. Good thing, this time around, we’re onboard with the trend.

12 Cashmere Sweaters For Channeling Nancy Meyers’ Movie Energy
Sweater aficionados know that cashmere is the premium cold-weather fabric for its superior warmth and softness. The prized fiber is made from cashmere goats, whose cold home requires their coat to be extra thick and warm to survive. Once turned into thread, however, it can be woven or knitted into varying thicknesses. So no matter how you prefer your cozy — perhaps as a ribbed cardigan, or as a fitted pullover, or even a light, sleeveless shell — the ways in which you can layer and wear it are limitless. The thing about cashmere, however, is that it’s expensive — it is a rare fiber, after all. With the majority of the world’s supply coming from goats specifically living in the Gobi Desert, there’s a relatively long-ish supply chain process linked to producing sweaters and the like. To that end, the best cashmere sweaters generally veer towards basic or neutral (for versatility’s sake) — and it's only fitting that they're often purchased as investment pieces. (On the flip side, if a style is too-good-to-be-true cheap, the sweater is likely sus or blended with other not-as-soft materials.)With so many fashion retailers and brands throwing around the “100% cashmere” language around, it’s hard to sort out where to find the sweaters worthy of your hard-earned dollars. So, for this edition of Hype Machine, we scanned through countless sites to filter out the highest-rated cashmere layerables according to serious cozy-seekers like you. (And, while Uniqlo doesn’t partake in customer reviews, we feel the retailer’s collection of cashmere crewnecks still deserves an honorable mention here for its longstanding level of quality and affordability.) Now that we’ve got all that out of the way, click on to see the best cashmere sweater styles the world wide web has to offer.At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. All product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication.

An Exclusive Discount On A TikTok-Famous Fashion Brand

According to Kim Zorn — the Global Performance Director at Princess Polly — the very popular (and affordable) Aussie fashion label’s customer is “Gen Z, trend-driven, social media savvy, and has their finger on the pulse of what’s hot.” This is a description that, after further investigation, absolutely checks out here in the states, where fashion TikTokkers have caught onto Princess Polly and its treasure trove of Instagram-ready, Y2K-inspired clothes. (We’re thinking of one hyped-up style, in particular, that went viral this past summer: The Love Galore Romper.) A stark 180 from the sweatsuits of the pandemic, Princess Polly’s usually under-$100 wares are all about getting out and being seen in; there’s no shortage of satiny tops, chunky boots, bodycon dresses, and oversized blazers to shackets. Though the brand’s been well-known in Australia since 2010, its sights are now set on becoming a global sensation; Zorn tells Refinery29 that there’s a second HQ in Los Angeles and a distribution center ready to service the growing, trend-forward U.S. fanbase with easy online transactions, fast shipping, and top-notch customer service. To get Refinery29 readers better acquainted, Princess Polly is treating us to an exclusive 20% off sitewide (excluding gift cards and sale items) with the code REFINERY29, through December 31, 2021. For a sampling of the brand’s top styles and a bit more background on its give-back and “Earth Club” initiatives, scroll on.

20% Off Princess Polly Dresses

As carefree and uninhibited as the brand seems, Princess Polly is dedicated to giving back and doing good. “As a growing business, we have the privilege to support important causes and raise funds for incredible charities,” says Zorn. “We have a number of partners including The Butterfly Foundation in Australia and The Loveland Foundation in the U.S. We’re also committed to donating $500K USD to various charities each calendar year. Our customers really guide us in selecting our charity partners and we aim to support causes that are close to our customers’ hearts.”

20% Off Princess Polly Tops

And, while many apparel retailers often get a negative rap for their fast-fashion output, Princess Polly aims to do right by the environment. “We recently launched Earth Club where we focus on four major impact areas: Ethical Sourcing, Sustainable Products, Protecting the Planet, and Equality & Community,” says Zorn of the brand’s mission to prioritize the planet and the people living in it. “Our Earth Club range is expanding daily — this includes apparel and accessories made from eight lower-impact, more sustainable materials like organic cotton, recycled cotton, recycled nylon, recycled polyester, recycled PU, water-based PU, recycled plastic, and recycled metal.”

Tessuti moderni simbolo di eleganza

 

La caratteristica principale che si dovrebbe percepire quando si ha l’occasione di toccare un tessuto moderno è quella di elegante semplicità. Trama e ordito, in questi casi, rappresentano un incrocio di culture e una contaminazione di gusti che crea un equilibrio elegante.

La modernità di questi tessuti si svela attraverso galles, gessati e micro disegni che solo all’apparenza si presentano come tradizionali. Tuttavia, grazie al gioco di sfumature e cromie, acquistano una dimensione più moderna che strizza l’occhio all’estetica nel suo significato più intenso ed emozionale.

Tessuti moderni: un riconoscimento culturale 

Il tessuto moderno presenta nel suo DNA un invito ad allargare lo sguardo oltre il mondo della moda, ad aprirsi ad un pensiero sempre più contemporaneo che asseconda il dinamismo della vita dell’uomo contemporaneo e il suo innato desiderio di piacersi.

I tessuti alla moda reinterpretano le idee e i trend, dando loro concretezza, creando una nuova eleganza che diventa stile. Il punto di partenza dei tessuti moderni resta sempre l'ambito classico, insieme all'universo sartoriale. Questi mondi hanno modo di diventare fluidi e compenetrarsi, accompagnando il gusto del moderno gentleman verso il suo evolversi in un disincantato viaggio alla scoperta della pura passione per il bello. 

L’ambizione dei tessuti moderni è quella di dar vita a un nuovo Rinascimento culturale, facendo rivivere l’eleganza italiana nella nobile materialità dei tessuti. Questa nuova chiave di lettura dei tessuti moderni, rappresenta un lavoro di immensa memoria di ciò che un tempo era un privilegio riservato a pochi e che ora diventa una passione collettiva.

I tessuti moderni diventano così oggetti preziosi per un guardaroba contraddistinto da un’eleganza inusuale che disegna e modella la figura maschile, riportandola all’essenza dello stile. Sono le infinite emozioni tattili a raccontare la ricchezza dei fondi e delle superfici per rendere ogni tessuto alla moda espressione di una libertà stilistica che esalta l’estetica e la ricerca del bello.

L’italianità nell'universo dei tessuti moderni

Il successo dei tessuti moderni è da ricercarsi nel distillato di eleganza, che queste collezioni rappresentano. È un mix vincente tra la tradizione dell’arte tessile e la continua ricerca dell’innovazione per un risultato all’insegna della ricercatezza e dell'affermazione di un indiscusso gusto italiano. 

Sono i tessuti alla moda quelli che anticipano le tendenze per l’uomo della prossima stagione, destinati a un gentleman raffinato, amante del lusso, attento al dettaglio e alla qualità dei materiali. Un uomo che interpreta la vita metropolitana con gusto personale e distintivo.

Per informazioni più dettagliate, si rimanda a “Una proposta di tessuti moderni” di Carnet, fonte autorevole in campo di tessuti.

Summer restyling: rinnovare casa con i poster Desenio

 

Negli ultimi due anni, per forza di cose, ci siamo ritrovati tutti a vivere molto di più le nostre case, e trascorrendoci tantissimo tempo, siamo tutti stati mossi dal desiderio di sentirle più "nostre" o di migliorarle, o semplicemente rinnovarle.

Da diversi anni ormai mi sono affidata a Desenio per dare una ventata di novità e freschezza a casa mia: rinnovare casa o anche solo una stanza con dei poster da parete significa farlo con un costo e un impegno davvero minimi, benché con un grande impatto visivo.

Cos'è Desenio?

Per chi non lo conoscesse già, Desenio è il sito numero uno per quadri moderni e poster. Su Desenio puoi trovare una vasta scelta di stampe per tutti i gusti: puoi scegliere tra le ultime novità in fatto di design, riproduzioni d'arte, frasi motivazionali e citazioni famose, rappresentazioni vintage e fotografie di grande impatto, e perfino quadri per arredare le camerate dei bambini. Inoltre su Desenio trovi passe-partout e cornici eleganti e dallo stile minimalista e mensole: insomma proprio tutto ciò di cui hai bisogno per decorare la tua parete.

Ti sei mai soffermata a guardare quelle gallery perfette con cui sono arredate tutte le stanze che vedi su Instagram? Ecco: la maggior parte è proprio di Desenio!

Scegliere i quadri giusti per arredare casa può essere un compito non proprio semplice. Se non hai ancora capito quale stile fa per te, o qual è l'idea giusta che potrebbe valorizzare al meglio una determinata stanza,   su Desenio puoi chiarirti le idee. Dai uno sguardo alle numerose proposte di gallery e lasciati ispirare dalle tendenze del momento. Puoi trovare tantissime combinazioni davvero vincenti, devi solo lasciarti guidare dal tuo istinto e capire quale ti farà sentire.. a casa!

Fare shopping su Desenio

Per poterti orientare meglio, Desenio ha strutturato la categoria dei poster in maniera più semplice e intuitiva possibile: troverai diverse categorie tra cui selezionare i quadri che ti piacciono di più: puoi cercare tra i più popolari, tra le novità, oppure puoi selezionarli per categoria (arte, vintage, bianco e nero, illustrazioni, piante, animali..) e ancora per dimensione, o per colore.

Summer restyling: come ho rinnovato casa con i poster Desenio

Con l'arrivo della stagione estiva avevo il desiderio di portare una ventata di freschezza e di novità in casa mia. Ho scelto tra le novità di Desenio tre poster con delle bellissime immagini di paesaggi di mare, che riuscissero a comunicare serenità, spensieratezza e un meraviglioso senso di pace. Desideravo dei colori tenui e delicati, capaci di emozionare. Così ho scelto le stampe Sri Lanka Palms Poster, Logan Rock Poster e Calm Beach Poster nella misura 50x70, tre passe-partout bianchi 70x100 e tre cornici in legno chiare della stessa dimensione. Li ho posizionati in ingresso, bene in vista, sostituendo i quadri che erano li, in modo da averli sempre davanti ai miei occhi quando sono nella zona giorno.

Poi ho rinnovato anche la zona pranzo: ho preso solamente le stampe, e le ho posizionate all'interno di alcune cornici precedentemente acquistate su Desenio. Ho optato per due poster che omaggiano la bellissima città in cui vivo: Rome Map Poster e Visit Colosseum Poster. Oltre a rappresentare la città a cui tanto sono legata, trovo che queste due stampe in bianco e nero risaltino ancora di più sulla mia parete azzurra.

Puoi trovare tutto ciò che ho preso per rinnovare casa qui!

Sapevi che Desenio è impegnato nella sostenibilità? Desenio è in possesso della certificazione FSC e per ogni albero utilizzato per la produzione delle sue stampe, si assicura che altri due ne vengano piantati!

L'estate porta sempre con se voglia di viaggi!!! Quest'anno più che mai, dopo un periodo difficile per tutti, abbiamo bisogno di rilassarci un pò, di scoprire qualche nuova meta in buona compagnia e di staccare dalla solita routine. Nadia, Ida Selvaggia ed io, ci eravamo ripromesse di trascorrere qualche giorno insieme quest'estate, mettendo per una volta da parte il nostro lavoro, e lasciando spazio al divertimento.

Per prenotare un viaggio in totale sicurezza è sempre importante affidarsi a dei professionisti del settore, quindi prenotare in agenzia. I vantaggi del prenotare un viaggio in agenzia sono molteplici: in questo caso un professionista si occuperà non solo di trovare il volo (o la nave, o il treno) più adatto alle nostre esigenze, ci consiglierà alcune soluzioni per il soggiorno, tra cui scegliere quella che più ci piace, ci proporrà diversi itinerari e punti di interesse da visitare durante la nostra vacanza, e ci farà sapere quali sono i documenti necessari, differenti a seconda della nostra meta.

Quest'anno a causa del covid, la situazione è abbastanza complessa: ogni Nazione ha previsto dei requisiti differenti e ha delle regole da rispettare, che è bene conoscere prima di partire per non andare incontro ad imprevisti. Proprio in vista di queste circostanze è davvero importante avvalersi dell'aiuto di chi organizza viaggi per mestiere.

Anche noi di The Fashion Mob ci siamo affidate ad un'agenzia di viaggi per organizzare il nostro viaggio estivo, destinazione Parigi!

In un primo momento in realtà avevamo provato a prenotare tutto da sole: abbiamo incontrato diverse difficoltà sia nell'organizzare il viaggio, trovando informazioni non complete e discordanti sul web, e infine ci siamo arrese davanti all'evidenza di non avere delle notizie concrete sui documenti che sarebbero dovuti essere in nostro possesso per entrare nel paese.

È stato proprio quando stavamo per rinunciare che Nadia ha avuto la brillante idea di affidarci a dei professionisti, così Ida è passata in agenzia di viaggio, si è fatta consigliare, ha raccolto tante informazioni utili, dai documenti, alla zona dove soggiornare, alle cose da fare una volta in Francia, fino all'organizzazione. Così, senza stress e in totale sicurezza abbiamo prenotato il nostro viaggio a Parigi in agenzia di viaggio!

Affidarsi a dei professionisti ci ha permesso di organizzare un viaggio nel migliore dei modi.. e voi siete già passati in agenzia per prenotare la vostra vacanza?

L'ultima tendenza è lo shopping artigianale
il vero glamour italiano anche onlineQuante volte andando in vacanza o in giro in un centro storico italiano abbiamo trovato un piccolo shop artigianale pieno di cose uniche e particolari, come una borsa fatta a mano, o una giacca sartoriale, o un gioiello dal design originale e l’abbiamo subito comprato per poi sfoggiarlo con le amiche alla prima occasione?Bene, se la vostra passione è trovare cose uniche da indossare o per arredare la casa, l’ultima tendenza è comprare artigianale!Con la pandemia le botteghe artigianali italiane, i designer emergenti della moda o del design, per non parlare dei creativi dai gioielli all’arte, hanno avuto una lunga battuta di arresto.

Moda bambini: una giornata comfy chic
Moda bambini: una giornata comfy chicCamilla è una vera appassionata di moda, proprio come me! Mano a mano che cresce, inizia a sviluppare un suo gusto nel vestire e si diverte a scegliere i suoi outfit. Adora lo stile glamour ed elegante, forse perché infondo desidera sentirsi sempre un pò principessa, ma è importante che i suoi capi siano allo stesso tempo versatili e comodi.Nell’ultimo periodo poi, è molto attenta ai trend del momento, quindi io sono sempre alla ricerca di look che soddisfino tutte queste caratteristiche, insomma di look per una giornata comfy chic.Ma è possibile essere comfy e chic allo stesso tempo? Assolutamente si!Ecco come vestirsi per una giornata comfy chic.Come suggerisce il nome di questa tendenza bisogna indossare dei capi che siano comodi, ma con un twist in più, caratteristiche glamour che rendano il look stiloso. Una combinazione davvero perfetta per una bambina come Camilla che è sempre in movimento ma non vuole rinunciare a vestirsi alla moda.Il look di oggi per esempio risponde perfettamente a tutti questi aspetti: ha una gonna di tulle color cammello con una balza finale estremamente romantica e femminile; un top corto con il nodino in vita e una scritta glitterata estremamente cool; e un giubbotto jeans verde militare con una cascata di paillettes (rimovbili) che ricopre tutte e due le taschine.Alcuni suggerimenti per creare un look comfy chicCombinare capi casual con altri dall’animo più elegante non è sempre facile: per questo ci sono tre suggerimenti da tenere sempre bene a mente:-combina tra loro capi con tessuti differenti, ad esempio il denim della giacca jeans, e il tulle della gonna;-gioca con i volumi! Il contrasto tra il top mini, la gonna lunga e la giacca dal volume over da vita ad un risultato super!-non avere paura di mixare capi formali con altri più comodi, la parola chiave è osare!Follie's Group: capi glamour per i bambini di oggiAnche per Camilla compro spesso in rete e di recente ho scoperto uno shop online di cui si è, anzi lo ammetto, ci siamo innamorate. Si tratta di Follie's Group, dove ho preso il total look Lu’Lu’ by Miss Grant che indossa oggi. Follie’s Group è azienda che da oltre dieci anni è specializzata nella produzione e commercio di abbigliamento per bambini.Lu’Lu’ by Miss Grant è uno dei brand che potete trovare sullo store di Follie’s Group, store online con una vastissima selezione di abbigliamento per bambini. Follie’s Group nasce per offrire ricercatezza ed eleganza, ma anche comodità e praticità, strizzando l’occhio alle tendenze.Oltre ad avere una varietà e una scelta davvero eccezionale, di Follie’s Group ho apprezzato anche la rapidità nelle spedizioni, cosa per me fondamentale quando faccio acquisti online.

10 Luoghi instagrammabili a Venezia: i posti per realizzare fotografie memorabili

Sono stata ormai diverse volte a Venezia e ogni volta me ne innamoro come se fosse la prima, per questo ogni volta ci tengo a fare un giro di tutti i punti di interesse della città, per poterli ammirare nuovamente e per riempirmi gli occhi di tanta meraviglia. Se anche voi volete visitare i punti più belli della città, ecco una lista dei post più instagrammabili di Venezia.

Sei pronto a scoprire i posti più instagrammabili di Venezia? Prendi carta e penna e scrivi, e preparati a scattare delle fotografie senza uguali.

Ponte di Rialto

Una volta a Venezia non puoi non fare una foto al Ponte di Rialto: il mio consiglio è di non scattare una foto qualsiasi da turista inesperto proprio sul ponte, ma di realizzare uno scatto davvero memorabile con il ponte più famoso della città alle tue spalle. Per farlo dovrai andare sull'ingresso nord del ponte (non quello dal lato di Piazza San Marco) e alla sinistra del ponte, proprio davanti alla Corte dei Conti, troverai un piccolo pontile da cui potrai scattare una bellissima foto, proprio come quella che vedi qui!

Ponte dei sospiri

Sapevi che il ponte ha questo nome perché da qui passavano i criminali condannati a morte mentre camminavano per andare in prigione e la visuale dal ponte era l'ultima cosa che avrebbero visto, e qui tutti sospiravano davanti ad un panorama tanto spettacolare. Anche qui il posto migliore per scattare è proprio sotto al ponte dei Sospiri: dal lato del Palazzo delle Prigioni nuove avrai una visuale perfetta per il tuo scatto instagrammabile di Venezia!

Piazza San Marco

Piazza San Marco è sicuramente il luogo più famoso e affascinante della città, nonché una delle piazze più visitate d'Italia. Ecco perché se vorrai scattare una foto instagrammabile a Venezia nella sua piazza più famosa hai due opzioni. La prima è alzarti davvero molto presto e arrivare all'alba a Piazza San Marco in modo da riuscire a scattare una foto d'effetto senza milioni di turisti attorno a te; la seconda è fare come ho fatto io e visitate la Basilica di San Marco e scattare una foto dalla sua terrazza, situata proprio sotto la Loggia dei Cavalli. La vista sulla piazza da qui è unica. L'accesso è consentito pagando il biglietto per il museo e l'orario della visita si può prenotare online.

Un'alternativa e scattare una foto sotto i portici che si trovano proprio dall'altro lato della piazza rispetto alla Basilica!

Un Hotel unico, il Papadopoli

Quando sei a Venezia, una scelta fondamentale è quella dell'hotel dove soggiornare. Ancora una volta io ho confermato l'Hotel Papadopoli Venezia MGallery by Sofitel, e non solo perché l'arredo elegante in stile 700 veneziano di questo boutique hotel lo rende il luogo ideale per scattare delle foto speciali al risveglio in camera o all'interno del magico ristorante il Giardino d'Inverno, che come suggerisce il nome è una magnifica oasi verde all'interno dell'hotel.

Ho scelto di tornare ancora una volta all'Hotel Papadopoli perché è una cornice d'eccezione in cui rilassarsi dopo aver camminato per calli e ponti, ed un posto incantevole in cui svegliarsi con il piede giusto, pronti per affrontare una nuova giornata a Venezia carichi di energia e positività.

Inoltre questa incantevole struttura immersa nel verde del parco da cui prende il nome, si trova in una posizione strategica, a pochi passi dal Canal Grande e dal Ponte della Costituzione, vicinissimo alla stazione di Santa Lucia.

Gondola

Tra gli scatti più instagrammabili di Venezia non posso non menzionare una foto a bordo di una gondola. La città sulla laguna, merita di essere vista e ammirata dal suo elemento, l'acqua. Se non l'avete mai fatto, vi consiglio di fare un giro i gondola, sarà un'esperienza unica e davvero romantica, che vi farà vivere e vedere la città in una maniera unica, che faticherete a dimenticare. Naturalmente dalla gondola avrete la possibilità di scattare delle foto indimenticabili.

Fondaco dei Tedeschi

Se vuoi ammirare il panorama della città di Venezia vista dall'alto devi assolutamente visitare la terrazza del T Fondaco dei Tedeschi, palazzo storico vicino a Rialto. La visita è gratuita, dura 15 minuti e va prenotata online. Dalla terrazza, godrai di una vista mozzafiato e a 360° sui tetti di tutta la città

Libreria Acqua Alta

La Libreria Acqua Alta è senz'altro la libreria più famosa della città. A renderla davvero particolare, e -diciamolo- anche inflazionata, sono le gondole che fungono da ripiani, e l'area esterna, piene di antichi libri impilati che formano una scala su cui salire per realizzare un altro scatto originale nella città sulla laguna.

Riva degli Schiavoni

Un altro dei luoghi più instagrammabili della città è molto vicino a Piazza San Marco e al Ponte dei Sospiri: è la Riva degli Schiavoni e da qui potrai scattare una foto instagrammabile, tra le gondole ormeggiate sulla riva, e con una visuale bellissima sulla Giudecca che si scorge in lontananza.

Canale S.Moise

Questa è una vera chicca, un canale a Venezia davvero bello e particolare, ma anche poco conosciuto e frequentato. Si trova proprio dietro all'hotel Moisé. Per raggiungerlo segui le indicazioni psul navigatore per raggiungere l'hotel e una volta arrivato, girati a sinistra e ai tuoi occhi apparirà una location davvero caratteristica. L'indirizzo è 2036 Piscina S.Moise Venezia.

Burano

Ogni angolino di Burano è una vera e propria esplosione di colori: qui non avete bisogno di un mio consiglio preciso! Ogni casa, calle e ponte, è estremamente fotografico e scenico! Il tragitto con il traghetto per arrivarci è un pò lungo, ma ne vale decisamente la pena!

Pigiama per bambini: come sceglierli in base al sesso, all’età e alla stagione

Tra tutti i capi di abbigliamento, il pigiama è quello preferito dai bambini, perché è comodo e li lascia liberi nella loro naturale voglia di movimento. Se potessero, lo indosserebbero anche per uscire fuori a giocare con gli amichetti!

Proprio per questi motivi, le aziende che si occupano di abbigliamento per bambini dedicano ad esso grande attenzione, realizzando modelli comodi, belli e originali. In questo articolo scoprirete quali tipologie di pigiami per bambini esistono e come sceglierli.

Cosa è un pigiama

Nato in Persia, il “Pae Jama”(da qui trasformato poi in pigiama) era un semplice pantalone che copriva le gambe. Nel tempo, è stato utilizzato come indumento usato per la notte, al quale si è abbinata una maglia.

Ai giorni nostri, il pigiama viene spesso usato anche per stare comodamente in casa, soprattutto dai bambini. Proprio per tale motivo, le aziende di abbigliamento per bambini propongono sempre nuovi modelli, tra i quali troverete sempre quello più adatto ai vostri piccoli. Ma quali tipologie di pigiama bambino esistono?

I pigiami per bambini

Sul mercato potete trovare diverse tipologie di pigiami per bambini, come ad esempio il classico due pezzi oppure quello che sta spopolando da qualche anno, ovvero a tuta intera. Vediamoli entrambi nel dettaglio. 

Il pigiama bambino a due pezzi

I due pezzi che formano il pigiama per bambini sono una maglia, una t-shirt o una canotta, abbinati a un pantalone o a degli shorts.

Rispetto a quello intero, è sicuramente molto più semplice da indossare e da levare, per i piccoli.

Il pigiama a due pezzi deve essere scelto della misura giusta perché se troppo stretto e piccolo, può lasciare la schiena e le caviglie scoperte, se invece è troppo largo, i bambini possono rischiare che il pantalone scivoli troppo mentre si muovono, dormendo.

In commercio ne trovate di tutti i tipi: a tinta unita, coloratissimi o con le stampe dei personaggi preferiti dei cartoni animati dei vostri bambini.

Il pigiama intero per bambini

È quello più utilizzato per i bambini più piccoli, fino ai tre anni di età, perché li copre completamente senza che rischino che la schiena e piedini rimangano scoperti durante la notte.

Tuttavia, negli ultimi tempi il pigiama intero è diventato una vera e propria moda, tanto che oggi trovate in commercio modelli per bambini più grandicelli e anche per adulti.

Li trovate sotto forma di simpatici animali, come gli orsacchiotti o i gettonatissimi unicorni, e sono quelli che i bambini usano maggiormente nelle fredde giornate invernali anche per stare dentro casa.

Come sceglierli

Che siano estivi o invernali, i pigiami vanno scelti tenendo conto soprattutto dei tessuti e della loro qualità.

Il cotone è sempre la fibra da preferire, perché è molto traspirante e non trattiene il sudore dei bambini sulla loro pelle, con il rischio di farli raffreddare.

In inverno, meglio preferire il caldo cotone, il misto lana e la flanella, anche questi molto traspiranti.

Visto che il pigiama bambino è un indumento che si usa così frequentemente e quindi si lava spesso, vi conviene farne una buona scorta.

Il consiglio è quello di prenderli in confezione multi pack o aspettare gli sconti stagionali per fare una buona scorta, avendo la possibilità di risparmiare!

 

Hypnia: materassi memory foam per un riposo di qualità

Da adolescente potevo dormire pochissime ore, anche in un letto scomodo, o addirittura su un divano, magari a casa di un'amica, ma comunque il giorno dopo ero riposata e carica di energia. Magari potesse essere ancora così! Con qualche anno in più sulle spalle ho imparato che la qualità del sonno è fondamentale per me, e che riesce a condizionare la mia persona secondo molteplici aspetti. Dormire bene mi aiuta ad essere produttiva ed efficiente durante la giornata, influisce positivamente sul mio umore e sulla mia concentrazione, inoltre il sonno potenzia il sistema immunitario e la memoria. Insomma il sonno non solo riesce a determinare l'andamento delle mie giornate, ma incide notevolmente sul mio benessere fisico e mentale.

Questo è qualcosa che negli anni ho sperimentato sulla mia pelle, ed è proprio così che ho compreso affondo l'importanza del sonno: la qualità del riposo notturno può davvero fare la differenza.

Hypnia: un punto di riferimento per i materassi memory foam

Così ho imparato a non sottovalutare il sonno, anzi a dargli la dovuta importanza e a impegnarmi per far si che le mie notti siano riposanti e di qualità. Per dormire bene, naturalmente è fondamentale avete un materasso di qualità, per questo ho deciso di provare Hypnia, azienda francese specializzata in materassi memory foam. Si parla di memory foam perché dopo l'uso, il materasso riprende la sua forma iniziale; questo è possibile perchè la schiuma viscoelastica e termosensibile presente nello strato superficiale si adatta alla forma del corpo sposandone i contorni. È in questo modo che riesce a garantire il massimo confort e a eliminare tutti i punti di pressione. Inoltre grazie al memory foam, viene stimolato il microcircolo e sostenuta la colonna vertebrale. La restante parte del materasso può essere dotata di molle o di altra schiuma.

Prova il tuo materasso Hypnia per 120 notti

Hypnia vende i suoi materassi esclusivamente online, per rendere più semplice e più accessibile l'acquisto del materasso ideale e recapita direttamente a casa vostra un Bed in Box, ovvero il materasso scelto, arrotolato e sottovuoto in uno scatolone: la consegna è gratuita e Hypnia ti da 120 notti per testare il materasso prima di decidere se sei soddisfatto o se vuoi restituirlo gratuitamente. Inoltre tutti i materassi Hypnia sono garantiti per 15 anni.

Che fine fanno i materassi che vengono restituiti? Prendono strade diverse a seconda delle condizioni in cui si trovano. Se i clienti li restituiscono in perfette condizioni, Hypnia li dona ad associazioni di beneficienza affinché possano regalare notti migliori ai più bisognosi; se invece sono rovinati, vengono riciclati evitando sprechi e tutelando l'ambiente.

Hypnia: materassi attenti alle esigenze di ogni persona

Sul sito di Hypnia puoi trovare 8 materassi differenti tra cui scegliere il tuo materasso ideale. Puoi sceglierlo in base alle tue necessità: magari hai bisogno di un sostegno più rigido o più flessibile, magari desideri un pò di sollievo dal mal di schiena o dai dolori cervicali. Fra l'altro per capire meglio quale modello si adatta meglio alle tue esigenze, sul Hypnia trovi un veloce test per individuare il tuo materasso dieale.

Tra i vari modelli proposti da Hypnia ho ho scelto il Materasso Supremo Benessere un materasso Memory Foam con molle insacchettate e 7 zone comfort ottimizzate 30 cm di spessore per un comfort extra-lusso e notti da sogno. È un materasso eccellente, lo trovo comodissimo e mi sta regalando notti di sonno incredibile che mi rigenerano completamente.

Clutch o Pochette: minibag che passione, ma quale scegliere?

Clutch o pochette, questo è il dilemma? Ad accomunare le due minibag è tendenzialmente la piccola taglia, ma anche lo straordinario interesse che dimostrano le donne verso i due modelli, pratici trendy e dall’ingombro minimal.

Clutch o pochette: quando scegliere l'una, quando l'altra

Clutch e pochette sono diverse per consistenza. Se la prima vanta una forma sostanzialmente rigida, e dotata di chiusura a scatto, la pochette è di norma realizzata in tessuto morbido e completata dalla presenza di un manico o di una sottile tracolla.

La pochette si abbina perfettamente agli abiti da sera, lunghi ed eleganti, grazie alle versioni più sfavillanti e ricche di luce, che illuminano l’outif, ma sono rari i modelli più casual, anche di taglia medio-maxi, portabilissimi di giorno con i jeans e gli abiti più sportivi. 

Le clutch, da reggere rigorosamente a mano, vantano dimensioni tendenzialmente piccole, sino a diventare addirittura minuscole, come veri e propri gioielli. Tanti i modelli proposti con la tracolla, seppur esigua, per consentire alle mani di restare libere.

Se sei alla ricerca di nuove idee per la tua prossima borsa in pelle, potrai trovare molti esempi di borsette clutch differenti sul sito della casa di moda Reptile's House, dove abbiamo scoperto anche questo bellissimo modello verde acqua. 

La storia della clutch

La clutch nata nella Francia di fine Settecento è una delle borse più amate di tutti i tempi. Se l’iconica Chanel 2.55 è sicuramente il modello più famoso, non possiamo dimenticare la knuckle clutch di Alexander McQueen, caratterizzata dall’originalissima impugnatura con lo spazio per contenere tutte le dita. 

Belli senza tempo i modelli gioiello realizzati negli anni ’20 da Judith Leiber, la famosa fashion designer ungherese.

Negli anni ’60 si è trasformata in un vero e proprio simbolo di libertà per le ragazze in minigonna, che l’hanno considerata un accessorio decisamente pratico e funzionale, a partire dalle dimensioni che ne hanno fatto l’accessorio di tendenza per eccellenza.

La storia della pochette

La pochette è la regina indiscussa delle Gran Soirée, ma non mancano i modelli da giorno, che si adattano perfettamente anche ad un look sportivo e vengono proposte in dimensioni diverse, senza disdegnare taglie medio-maxi.

La progenitrice delle proposte più attuali nasce nel 1800, quando le donne per uscire utilizzavano sacche di seta ricamate, che nel gergo del tempo venivano chiamate ‘reticoli’. La scelta della piccola taglia consentiva comunque di portare con se gli oggetti utili alle donne del tempo e quindi ago e filo, i sali, una boccetta di profumo e l’immancabile fazzolettino ricamato.

La pochette oggi si rivela estremamente utile per una donna super organizzata, che si muove molto e sa perfettamente che cosa è importante avere sempre a portata di mano.

“…E se fossi un moscerino”: 365 avventure immersive digitali da vivere insieme ai nostri bambini

Le nostre giornate sono sempre frenetiche e piene di impegni, e spesso mi trovo a interrogarmi su come ottenere il massimo dai momenti che trascorro insieme a Ciamy. Il tempo insieme non è mai abbastanza, quindi è fondamentale che sia di qualità.

Proprio per questo sono sempre alla ricerca di attività valide che possano coinvolgerci e farci godere al meglio i nostri momenti mamma e figlia.

Ultimamente abbiamo scoperto che la società Webappeel Srl ha creato “…E se fossi un moscerino”, un bellissimo progetto di avventure immersive digitali, a cui ci siamo subito appassionate.

Le esperienze sono 365, una per ogni giorno dell’anno, e il sito te ne propone in automatico una nuova quotidianamente. Così tu e il tuo bambino vivrete insieme delle bellissime avventure, in compagnia degli animali di tutto il mondo.

Si inizia con un piccolo indovinello attraverso il quale si può scoprire quale sarà l’animale che ci guiderà nel percorso del giorno.

Subito dopo averlo visualizzato, grazie al morphing, il bambino deciderà se trasformarsi o meno nell’animale del giorno: in questo modo potrà vivere ogni racconto da protagonista.

“…E se fossi un moscerino” è molto di più di una raccolta di favole inedite: infatti, prima di ascoltare o leggere la favola del giorno, avrai la possibilità di scoprire alcune curiosità e abitudini dell’animale protagonista oltre a giocare insieme a chi riesce a “imitarne” meglio il verso che è inserito come uno dei momenti divertenti dell’avventura.

Alla fine di ogni favola c’è un insegnamento che l’animale del giorno vuole trasmettere ai nostri figli, e anche a noi!

In questo modo “…E se fossi un moscerino”, dà la possibilità a genitori e figli di trascorrere del tempo di qualità insieme, e diventa un piccolo appuntamento quotidiano irrinunciabile.

Così almeno è stato per noi: è diventato un momento solo nostro, che aspettiamo durante tutta la giornata, una coccola quotidiana che ci concediamo prima di andare a dormire.

Le avventure sono disponibili per due fasce d’età come linguaggio adottato: 3-5 e 5-8 anni ed è possibile inserire fino a 3 figli.

E per avvicinare i nostri bambini ad un’altra lingua sono anche usufruibili in inglese. 

Spesso noi ascoltiamo le favole prima in italiano e poi in inglese: può essere un ottimo esercizio.

“…E se fossi un moscerino” non aiuta solo a migliorare l’esistenza di tutte quelle famiglie che decidono di regalarsi questi momenti di avventure immersive digitali, ma supporta anche alcuni bambini meno fortunati.

Una parte dell’utile di Webappeel è infatti destinata a progetti di beneficenza concreti: ogni abbonamento contribuisce alla realizzazione di iniziative umanitarie a supporto dell’infanzia seguite dall’associazione Give a Drop. Sarai proprio tu a scegliere, durante la fase d’acquisto dell’abbonamento, quale progetto tra quelli proposti vorrai supportare.

Sul sito puoi scegliere tra l’abbonamento mensile, con 30 avventure da vivere ogni giorno per un mese al costo di 9,90 euro, oppure l’abbonamento annuale, che con 69,90 euro ti dà la possibilità di accedere a 365 avventure accompagnandoti durante tutto l’anno.

Questo bellissimo progetto non poteva che essere nato dall’amore di un genitore per i suoi figli: Gianluigi sa quanto sia importante trascorrere del tempo di qualità insieme ai propri figli, e spinto dal desiderio di offrire anche alle altre famiglie uno spunto per trascorrere questi momenti genitori-figli in maniera divertente ma anche educativa, ha dato vita a “…E se fossi un moscerino”.

Un look coordinato perfetto per il tempo libero e per il lavoro

 Se c'è una cosa che amo da impazzire, al di sopra di tutte le mode del momento, sono i coordinati. Danno vita a look pazzeschi da con il minimo sforzo e sono perfetti per essere indossati in tantissime occasioni. Se accessoriati con gli accessori giusti, come ad esempio queste décolleté a punta, danno vita ad una mise davvero chic di Girl Boss, che a me piace indossare sia per lavoro che nel tempo libero!

Vacanza fashion a Montecarlo, alcuni consigli

Montecarlo è senza ombra di dubbio una destinazione molto ambita e rinomata a livello internazionale. Ogni anno attira numerosi turisti provenienti da tutto il mondo, incuriositi dallo stile di vita e dalle principali attrazioni presenti in questa località.

Resta infatti ancora oggi una delle mete più esclusive a livello mondiale, grazie a luoghi quali ad esempio il suo noto Casinò. È inoltre la sede di uno dei principali eventi di Formula 1, che una volta l'anno trasforma la città in un vero e proprio circuito ad alta velocità.

Al di là degli eventi di carattere sportivo però, Montecarlo è nota anche per il suo ambiente chic legato a doppio filo alla moda ed al lusso: è quindi una destinazione perfetta per chi ha particolare interesse per l’universo fashion.

Vediamo quindi quali sono le destinazioni più affascinanti e glamour, da non perdere se si capita in città.

Il casinò di Montecarlo

Meta di sicuro interesse per tutti gli appassionati di gioco d'azzardo e di luoghi raffinati ed eleganti, il casinò di Montecarlo attira da moltissimi anni un turismo globale. Dotato di incredibile fascino, grazie alle sue numerose sale ed ai molti tavoli da gioco presenti al suo interno, non è però riservato solo per giocatori, ma apre le porte anche ai visitatori, incuriositi anche dai suggestivi marmi ed alle decorazioni scultoree presenti nei suoi ambienti.

Il casinò è inoltre di estrema importanza per il Principato di Monaco: i profitti prodotti dalle sale da gioco permettono infatti al Principato stesso di mantenere una tassazione al minimo per i residenti in quest'area. Ecco perché Montecarlo è anche conosciuta come uno dei tanti paradisi fiscali.

Curioso inoltre il fatto che l'ingresso al casinò sia riservato esclusivamente ai turisti che vengono dall'esterno: chi vive a Montecarlo non può infatti accedere alle sale da gioco. Non è difficile inoltre avvistare qualche VIP tra gli avventori, anche se per questi personaggi vengono spesso riservate sale private, per garantire loro la giusta privacy e riservatezza.

L'interesse per il gioco d'azzardo è però comune anche ad un turismo non particolarmente avvezzo alle sale da gioco tradizionali: esistono infatti oggi diversi casinò online, come casinoonlineaams.com, che permettono di tentare la fortuna dal comfort del proprio albergo. Un'alternativa eccellente per tutti quegli appassionati del gioco orientati però ad una vacanza all’insegna del relax e delle serate poco impegnative.

La città vecchia

Un altro luogo di sicuro interesse per qualsiasi turista è inoltre la città vecchia di Montecarlo, un piccolo borgo medioevale nel quale si alternano curiose viette, scalinate e bellissime piazze, caratterizzate da un incredibile senso del decoro e dell'ordine. Questo piccolo borgo fa inoltre parte di un’area interamente pedonale, perfetta quindi per bellissime passeggiate serali alla scoperta degli scorci e delle opere del nucleo storico.

Le attrazioni da non perdere assolutamente sono, tra le altre, la Cappella della Misericordia, il Palazzo dei Principi e Place Saint Nicolas, luoghi incredibilmente affascinanti anche solo da una prospettiva esterna.

L'outfit perfetto per la città

Montecarlo porta sicuramente a frequentare luoghi eleganti come sofisticati ristoranti ed alberghi di lusso. oltre alle già menzionate sale da gioco del casinò: l’outfit perfetto per muoversi in questi luoghi o per camminare tra le vie della città comprende sicuramente un abbigliamento sobrio e formale, che non cada però mai in inutili eccessi.

I suggerimenti basilari sono quelli di optare per un abbigliamento di qualità ma non eccessivo e di ricordarsi di vestirsi sempre e comunque in modo coerente rispetto al luogo che si frequenta: appellarsi al semplice buon gusto è la scelta vincente, evitando quindi look esageratamente appariscenti e fuori luogo.

Un weekend a Montecarlo permette già di scoprirne le principali attrazioni, ma per una visita più approfondita e rilassata di questa eclettica cittadina è consigliabile dedicare ad essa qualche giorno in più, godendo anche dei suoi angoli dedicati al relax, come terme e spa, e del suo palinsesto di eventi sempre vivace. 

Come vestirsi per una serata al casinò

Una dei sogni che hanno solleticato la mente di molti almeno una volta nella vita è quello di poter vivere l'esperienza di una serata in un casinò. Per sognare una serata di questo tipo non per forza bisogna essere appassionati di gioco d'azzardo, anzi: il casinò è sempre stato un ambiente particolarmente elegante, avvolto da un alone di mistero capace di incuriosire costantemente.

È senza ombra di dubbio un ambiente piacevole da frequentare, sia che l'esperienza venga condivisa con amici, piuttosto che in coppia o addirittura da soli. Dopotutto, i giochi non mancano e la tentazione lanciarsi nell’avventura ed essere protagonisti di una vincita potrebbe scattare in ogni momento.

In questo particolare ambiente però, è necessario seguire alcune regole. Oltre a quelle più ovvie e dettate dal buon senso, è inoltre assolutamente imperativo un abbigliamento adeguato, sia per l'uomo che per la donna.

Qual è quindi l'abbigliamento ideale per una serata al casinò?

L'abbigliamento desiderato dalle sale da gioco

Il fatto che gli ambienti dei casinò richiedano un outfit idoneo, non è un caso: si tratta infatti di luoghi per definizione sofisticati ed di classe che richiedono, non a caso, di evitare in un abbigliamento fuori luogo ed abiti troppo casual, capaci potenzialmente di infastidire la clientela più raffinata.Il rispetto per gli altri clienti e per il contesto lussuoso ed elegante impongono quindi alcuni codici di comportamento: la regola che vale praticamente per tutti i casinò a livello globale è quella di cercare nel proprio armadio dei vestiti adatti per l'occasione, evitando gli abiti troppo sportivi o addirittura trasandati.

Come deve vestirsi l'uomo

Per quanto riguarda i frequentatori maschili del casinò, l'abbigliamento consigliato è composto prevalentemente dal classico connubio giacca e pantaloni. Sotto la giacca si possono adottare diverse soluzioni che vanno da una polo, non elegante ma interpretata come abito sufficientemente sobrio, piuttosto che una camicia, sicuramente perfetta nel 100% delle occasioni.

Quel che conta è infatti il risultato complessivo, che deve superare a pieni voti la selezione all'ingresso. Quest'ultima non è quasi mai estremamente rigida: alcuni casinò sono più severi in tal senso, ma in linea di massima se si adotta un vestiario ad hoc, nella maggior parte dei casi si potranno superare i controlli senza nessuna preoccupazione.

Per quanto riguarda le scarpe, anche in questo caso le opzioni sono diverse: ovviamente il top sono delle eleganti calzature da uomo tradizionali, ma anche delle sneakers, se non troppo sportive, possono andar bene.

Come deve vestirsi la donna

Anche la donna non deve pensare per forza di cose a un abbigliamento eccessivamente sfarzoso, ma appellarsi invece all’eleganza minimal e chic: indossare un classico vestito da sera è infatti piuttosto tradizionale per la sfera femminile ed è ovviamente sempre ben visto all'ingresso. Il taglio corto del vestito va benissimo, purché non si scada mai nel volgare e nell’eccesso.

Un punto a favore per la popolazione femminile è sicuramente quella legata al mondo degli accessori: un abito da sera può infatti essere facilmente accompagnato da pochettes, borse e bijoux che non faranno altro che arricchire ulteriormente il look, contribuendo ad un risultato complessivamente più ricercato.

Come sono cambiate le sale da gioco nel tempo

In passato molti casinò, soprattutto quelli di fama internazionale, erano luoghi con regole molto più rigide e con selezioni all'ingresso decisamente più restrittive. L'esigenza in quelle occasioni era quella di indossare necessariamente abiti di estrema eleganza, pena il mancato accesso alle sale da gioco.

Nel corso degli anni però, la situazione per molti casinò è cambiata e sebbene esistano ancora locali dove le norme sono piuttosto esigenti, in molti altri ambienti ci si può presentare con abiti sicuramente di bon ton, ma non per forza lussuosi.

Per evitare ogni problematica relativa all’outfit perfetto, una delle possibilità che offre internet al giorno d'oggi è quella di poter tentare la fortuna direttamente online, su piattaforme come casinosicurionline.net: si evita in questo lo stress inerente la scelta dell'abbigliamento optando per un’alternativa in rete, comunque valida ed entusiasmante, ad una sala da gioco vera e propria.

Dopotutto, sono molte le persone a cui non interessa nello specifico frequentare le sale da gioco offline ed i loro fini ambienti, ma che desiderano solamente divertirsi con i loro passatempi preferiti, nel caldo comfort della loro abitazione: una scelta altrettanto emozionante, ma molto più easy ed a basso stress.

Pandemia: ecco come ha cambiato le nostre abitudini al gioco

Il Covid-19 ha avuto un impatto diretto fortissimo sulla vita di ognuno di noi: non solo per quanto riguarda le condizioni di salute e vita familiare o della situazione finanziaria, nostre e dei nostri cari. In realtà questa Pandemia mondiale ha cambiato radicalmente le nostre abitudini, a partire da quelle più ovvie come l’uso della mascherina o il frequente utilizzo di disinfettante per mani, a quelle meno manifeste, di cui spesso magari non ci rendiamo nemmeno conto.

Da un giorno all’altro ci siamo ritrovati a dover trascorrere tante, tantissime ore nelle nostre case, e così improvvisamente abbiamo avuto una grande quantità di tempo libero a disposizione.

Senza ombra di dubbio la privazione della libertà di movimento e della socialità che avevamo prima, e che consideravamo scontate, ci mancano e spesso ci mettono di cattivo umore o sotto stress; ma smart working, coprifuoco e tanto tempo da trascorrere tra le nostre quattro mura possono avere dei risvolti positivi. Ad esempio possono permetterci di dedicarci ad alcune attività a cui probabilmente prima non avevamo il tempo necessario per dedicarci.

Giocare è un modo divertente per trascorrere del tempo di qualità con la propria famiglia in casa.

Ecco perché nel 2020 gli italiani hanno dato molto più spazio ai giochi da tavola, rispetto a quanto fatto pre-pandemia, nel 2019. Questa notizia è quanto riporta uno studio condotto da idealo, comparatore di prezzi con oltre 145 milioni di offerte e oltre 30000 negozi online, che si propone anche come guida imparziale allo shopping on-line.

I giochi da tavola infatti sono un modo sano e costruttivo per alleggerire il peso e l’angoscia della situazione che stiamo vivendo, una strada vincente per fuggire dalla noia, e per divertirsi nonostante le restrizioni. Secondo la ricerca pubblicata su Idealo magazine, durante il lockdown, l’interesse degli italiani verso i giochi di società è aumentato del 48,9% rispetto all’anno precedente.

La differenza è ancora più impressionante se si confrontano singolarmente i dati dei mesi in cui è iniziato il lockdown con quelli dell’anno precedente: marzo 2020 ha registrato un aumento del +481% mentre aprile del +224,5%.

Idealo evidenzia anche i 10 giochi più apprezzati dagli italiani durante l’anno appena concluso:

in cima alla classifica c’è Monopoly Classic, un grande classico adatto a grandi e piccini;

Segue Occhio al Fantasma per mettere alla prova i propri riflessi;

Taboo - il gioco delle parole vietate! Una sfida per far indovinare alla propria squadra la parola segreta senza pronunciare quelle proibite;

UNO Flip, la nuova versione del famoso gioco, ma con carte speciali con il doppio fronte;

Monopoly: Ultimate Banking Edition, nella sua versione moderna Monopoly prevedere carte di credito al posto dei soldi;

Non svegliare papà: chi riuscirà ad accaparrarsi la torta al cioccolato senza svegliare il papà?;

L’allegro chirurgo, sempre attuale, generazione dopo generazione: per operare come un vero medico senza toccare il paziente;

Occhio al fantasma Evolution 3D: una volta indossati gli occhiali 3D dovrai scappare dai fantasmi;

Cluedo - Basic Edition, per calarsi nei panni di un investigatore e scoprire chi ha compiuto un delitto;

UNO, il gioco di carte più amato, nella sua versione classica.

Durante l’ultimo anno avete giocato con qualcuno di questi giochi? Se si con quale?

Get Your Garment Made, Tips From An India Sourcing Agent

Sourcing in India is exciting - there are so many beautiful handmade, high-quality options for startup fashion brands to choose from. And, because India has a rich history in the cottage industries movement, with the help of the government many small mom and pop suppliers have been able to survive and stay open. That's good news for a startup company because these tiny family-owned units generally love to take on new brands with super small MOQs. But, sourcing in India can have its downsides. India is wild and chaotic (compared to the ease and simplicity of manufacturing systems in countries like China), getting your barrings can be difficult and takes some brands years to figure out. Because of that, you might want to consider working with an India sourcing agent like me. But, if you want to DIY it - here is what you need to know to navigate India's apparel landscape.

A Few Tips

Before we get started here are a few good rules and tips to make your India entry strategy as smooth as possible.

Never Meet People In Facebook Groups - Use Trade Shows Instead

If you have been following the blog for a while, you most definitely have probably heard me give this advice before. And, I keep repeating it because it is really good advice. You are a busy person that is learning a lot, so, I don't want you to forget.

There are not a lot of certainties in life. But I can promise you this, if you meet a supplier in a Facebook group you are most likely going to get ripped off.

That is because the good suppliers have customers coming to them, and are not spending time spamming internet groups.

So how do you become one of those people that actively seek out suppliers? And, doesn't have to rely on internet spam? Easy. Go. to tradeshows. Tradeshows are industry events where pre-vetted (read, you can trust them) suppliers from all over the world come to do business. Here is a list of a few of my favorites.

Always Get References - But, Boundaries, People!

Once you find a supplier that feels like a good fit - always get a reference. If they give you some story about how their clients are private, and this and that, simply say "I am sure you must have some showroom samples to show me". If they don't, move on.

For the most part, I have stopped giving out my clients contact info to use as reference. Potential brands got way too aggressive with them. (One even tried to demand an hour-long phone call - not from me, from my client!) So, being on the manufacturing end, I totally get why factories don't want to share their client details. It's not their client's job to field your calls.

But, at the very least they should be able to share a few products they have made. And, prove they are capable of making the type of product you need before any money changes hands for services and you start doing business together.

Geographical Location Is Important

Like, probably the most important part of sourcing India products. And, for the rest of this blog article, I am going to talk mostly about geographic-based sourcing.

The idea of geographic-based sourcing is not unique to India. Every country has different manufacturing hubs. For example here in the USA, LA is great at churning out athleisure. Miami has some top-of-the-line swim factories (also, FYI, lots of cosmetics factories). And, NY specilises in more high-end designs. Now, that is not to say you could not make swim in NY, or couture in LA. But, to make your life easier, you might want to start your supplier search by looking in the right area first.

There are even entire countries that are known for specific things. Like Romania and Turkey are great for handmade laces (yes I purposely left out France and Italy there).

A lot of times when startups speak to me about their sourcing frustrations I realize that they are trying to make the wrong product in the wrong place. Once they are able to learn the where, their sourcing efforts become easier, and their supply chain is able to quickly fall into place.

Delhi india sourcing delhi

markets and ultra-low MOQs

Delhi is kind of like the China of India. What do I mean by that? Well, you can find almost anything in the market. If you have manufactured in China, you are probably familiar with their markets. Sham Shui Po in HK is an example of one of these markets.

Basically, all of the leftover fabrics, trims, and anything a factory isn't using or able to sell goes to the markets to be sold as available stock. In China, these markets are all over the place, and highly organized. And, to be frank, no one in the world is able to do this quite as well as China.

But the markets in Delhi are the closest thing you can get in India. These markets are the perfect place for small brands to start out. You can buy available fabrics that are ready to use. Or, you can buy greige fabrics and then have your supplier print or dye them for you. If they don't have the fabric you need, sometimes they can direct you to one of their friends down the road. Or, even better, they can contact the factory they originally got the fabric from on your behalf and get more for you.

Hey, small startsup's are you listening?

Markets are your low MOQ loophole. One of my favorite spots is the vintage sari guy. First, the prints and fabrics are amazing. And, you know no other brands out there are going to have the same thing as you because they are true vintage and basically one of a kind at this point.

Bangalore

india sourcing agent - bangalore

the NYC of India

While Bangalore is technically knowns as the San Francisco of India (lots and lots of tech here) IMO I think of Bengaluru as the apparel manufacturing equivalent to NYC.

What do I mean by that? It's expensive.

The reality is that things in NYC, and Bangalore, cost more because the cost of living in these cities is higher. But, one of the things you need to think about when choosing a geographic location to work in, is do you want to be there?

Personally, I hate Delhi. Yea, I said what I said. The pollution is unbearable, every time I go I get some sort of lung infection. And, don't even get me started on the traffic. Driving a few miles can take hours - this is not an exaggeration. And, if I am going to get really really honest, it is one of the most unsafe places for women.

But, I love Bangaluru. It just has a good vibe. And, is very western (btw, when people say a city is "western" it's ex-pat code for "safe for women"). There is also a great nightlife scene. As someone from the west, Bengaluru is an easier cultural transition than Delhi.

So, yeah, it might be worth it for you and your brand to pay that big city premium. And then have an easier time getting your feet wet in India sourcing at the beginning.

And, to answer the questions I am sure you might be thinking right now - is it worth it? Yes. Sometimes you really do get what you pay for. I have found some really, high-quality (think like luxury fashion groups in Europe use them) suppliers in Bangalore.

Ahmedabad

outsourcing in india - ahmedabad

handicrafts

I have mentioned it before and I'll say it again, I love Ahmedabad. The food, the people (read, how safe it is for women to wander the streets in the middle of the night), did I mention the food. FYI, Gujarti food is different than any other type of Indian food, and to understand what I am saying you just have to try it. Anyway, while I don't do a ton of work in Ahmedabad, I will make any excuse possible to go for a little weekend getaway.

While Ahmedabad is known as one of the places that Gandhi spent a majority of his life, (Gandhi is often pictured at a spinning wheel, and known for his work in the hand weaving community) there isn't much actual weaving going on. There is however an amazing textile museum, the Calico Museum. You need to buy tickets for literally months in advance. So, make sure to book it early.

But while it's not the destination for handweaving (more on that in a second) - my absolute favorite fabric store in the world is in Ahmedabad. All-natural plant-based dyes, hand-loomed fabrics, and reasonable prices - this is where I take people to really fall in love with Indian textiles. Sorry, not sorry - I reserve this contact only for people that come and experience India with me.

But there are also lot of other handicraft goods. Ahmedabad while not a manufacturing hub, has lots a really special artistan shops that have items you can't find anywhere else in India.

Kutch

products from india - kutch

artisan weaving

Kutch is a village in Gujarat a few hours away from Ahmedabad (depending on traffic). It is famous for its artisan clusters. You can think of artisan clusters like local artisan networks. And, omg some of the fabrics that these artisans make are amazing.

My advice, book the trip, wander around, you'll find people everywhere making amazing things.

Maheshwar

india sourcing - khadi

more artisan weaving

Maheshwar is another artisan cluster in Madhya Pradesh. The region is infamous for being quite dangerous for women. But there are many NGOs in the area that are doing good work to help empower women with high-paying artisan jobs, coupled with education to help protect women.

The fabrics are beautiful. But, the pricing is errr, "not competitive" (competitive pricing is industry code for "we want it cheaper") so, be prepared to pay a lot more than some other areas of the country.

So, is it worth the soucring trip? I think so.

Jaipur

block printing in Jaipur

block printing

Jaipur is rich in block printing culture. It is also one of my favorite cities and it is no coincidence that I do a majority of my business there, and it has become my second home in India. The city aligns with everything I want (minus the pollution that is getting worse every year).

First off, the city is picturesque - just google it. And secondly they are very environmentally conscious. In Jaipur it is almost impossible to dye polyester (in general, poly uses much more environmentally damaging dyes than fibers like rayon or cotton). To my knowlege, there are only two palcse to dye polyester in Jaipur, and they are technically just right outside the city.

Suppliers in the area are dedicated to using natural fabrics, and natural dyes. They want to preserve their city and not have it turn into the toxic place that Delhi has become.

One of the things people come to Jaipur for is block printing. Block printing is a method of carving wooden blocks and then using the carvings to stamp fabrics with the patterns. The process is great because it uses less electricity and water than conventional printing, and also creates lots of jobs in the process.

My advice, if you were thinking about trying to work in Bangalore because it's a very liveable city, also consider checking out Jaipur.

Tamil Nadu Area

sourcing in Tamil Nadu

knits

Most of the knitting mills in India are in the south. So, if you are trying to source t-shirts or athleisure, you might want to start your search in the south, specifically Tamil Nadu and the surrounding areas.

Up north, for example in Jaipur, you find more factories that primairly focus on wovens.

Auroville: The City of Dawn

auroville organic indian products

organics

Auroville is a unique place - "Auroville wants to be a universal town where men and women of all countries are able to live in peace and progressive harmony above all creeds, all politics and all nationalities. The purpose of Auroville is to realize human unity."

While they say "There is no money, no government, no religion, no skyscrapers or expressways, no newspapers with headlines of war, poverty, and genocide. Built for 50,000 people, Auroville today has only about 2,500 permanent residents and roughly 5,000 visitors—self-selected exiles from more than 100 countries." - you will find businesses just outside the city like Faborg - who creates vegan wool out of plants.

Another place to check out for all thing eco manufacutring (and is always an amazing vacation destination) is Pondicherry.

This Isn't The End-All India Sourcing List

There are lots of other areas and regions that specialize in making different things. But, for now, I think this list is good to get you started and to help you understand that India sourcing, and "Made in India" is not a blanket statement. Made in India is unique to the different parts of the country.

Sleek Low Bun hair care routine [email protected] Pinterest

Wearing a traditional Indian outfit for festivities? Well, pull up your hair into a sleek low bun at the nape of your neck. Make the hairstyle more appealing by draping a string of gajra or flowers around it. And you are ready with one of the perfect hairstyles for the festive season.

How-to: Put some anti-frizz serum on your hair and blow-dry using a ceramic round brush to make it go straight.

Use a tail comb to section your hair into two parts. Dab on some styling gel to subdue flyaways. Now gather all your hair back into a ponytail and twist it into a bun. Pinup a Gajra with some bobby pins, and you are good to go.

Messy Bun hairstyles [email protected] wedding- Pinterest

There is so much that you can do with buns. This versatile festive hairstyle gives itself to a lot of variation with a few hair care tips. You can easily make a statement with a cool messy bun.

How-to: Gather all your hair into a loose ponytail and position it low or high.

Do not comb your hair while gathering them up as the aim is to make it look messy. Twist your hair into a bun, and leave a tail out at the end. Fasten the bun with bobby pins and an elastic band. Messy buns look best with day-old hair. You can also spray some dry shampoo to texturize if you have applied shampoo to your hair.

Braided Bun hairstyle trends [email protected] Pinterest

Snag this classy braided chignon and be the glamour of the festivities by adding something glamourous to your haircare routine. Using a comb separate your front hair from the rest of your hair. Section your hair from the middle and make a French braid with both parts and secure it with pins behind the ears. Now allocate the remaining hair into five equal parts and make normal braids of each. Roll the middle braid into a simple bun and secure it with pins. Wrap the other braids over the bun and fix it. At last spray with hair sprays and secures the hairstyle.

Maang Tika With Pony hair care tips [email protected]

A delightfully ornate Maang Tika on your forehead can uplift your traditional look with a few beauty tips for women. While the traditional way to wear a Maang Tika is to place it in the middle parting with a braid, bun, or ponytail. This ethnic look works well if you have beachy, or loose curls.

How to: Section your hair from the middle and gather your waves back into a ponytail and secure it with hairpins. Make sure that your hair is not tightly pulled and tied. Place your Maang Tika in the center of your hair and your understated ethnic festive look is ready.

Half Up, Half Down hairstyles 2021 [email protected] Pinterest

When you are stapled for time and running late, a half bun hairstyle is a lifesaver as per the latest hair care tips. The ethnic hairstyle is super chic and looks gorgeous with traditional accessories like Jhumka earrings and Maang Tikas. To rock the look, first part the top half of your hair and tie it into a pony. Tease the lower base of the pony with a comb to add volume to your hair. Twist the ponytail into a bun and secure it with hair spray and bobby pins. Finger comb or brush out the untied part of the hair and leave it loose.

You could also go for a messy variation of this hairstyle for the festive season by roughly parting the top half of your hair in the center. Then frame two thick strands of hair from the front of each side. Make braids on both the side of the part and compile them in a bun at the back of your head.

Can You Make Cosmetics At Home?
Image

It will not be appropriate to call make-up just a cosmetic product as it has become a part of our daily essentials. It is that dash of colossal kajal that makes you see the world in a new light, the lipstick that makes our day more interesting, and a splash of magic with the eye makeup that makes the world more highlighted. Make-up is not just a cosmetic rather it is an art.

However, this splash of magic from our makeup products comes with more than just a splash of money. What if we say that all those fancy makeup products can be made at home without spending a dime? Yes, it is possible. Here are some homemade makeup products and beauty tips for women that both your wallet and face would love:

Kajal

Here is a perfect answer to how do you make cosmetics at home. This recipe is excellent for those who can never leave their house without applying kajal. Now, you can say that you own the chemical-free version of your everyday kajal.

Take 7-8 almonds, and put them in a small earthen pot or Diya. Take a matchstick and light all the almonds till they are entirely on fire. Put two glasses made of fire at a short distance from one another, and keep the earthen Diya with burning almonds between them.Rest a steel plate on top of the glasses and make sure it drifts right above the Diya. Try not to leave too much distance between the Diya and the plate, as the soot is everything we want for the kajal.Let the almonds burn till the flame dies out. Let the plate cool for some time. Flip the plate once it gets completely cool. There must be a lining of black soot on the plate. Take a few drops of castor or almond oil, put them on the soot, and scrape them off the plate.  the thick paste will be formed out of the soot once the oil is mixed. Transfer the formed mixture into a container. Add a little castor oil or almond oil to alter the thickness of the kajal and let it sit for some time. Your homemade kajal is all set for use.

Lip Balm Lip Balm Lip Balm

Another staple in our bags is lip balm, as it helps us with our chapped and dry lips. Read on to know how do you make cosmetics at home using simple ingredients.

Take 1 tbsp coconut oil and 1 tbsp beeswax in a bowl. Put the bowl over a pot of boiling water and stir till the wax and the oil get melted.Add a few drops of your everyday essential oil for fragrance. Next, add a small piece of your favorite lipstick for tint. Store the formed mixture in a container and let it solidify.Your homemade lip balm is ready for use.

Moisturiser

Making DIY moisturizer is super easy and effective.

Take 1 tbsp aloe vera gel and 7-10 drops of coconut oil in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Now take a vitamin E capsule and cut it down and pour its contents into your mixture. Here you can also use almond oil as a substitute.Mix all three ingredients thoroughly and pour them into a small storage container. Here you are ready with your homemade moisturizer.

DIY Primer

Begin by adding foundation into a small container. It is best to use a foundation that comprehends your skin tone. To be on the safer side, use your everyday foundation.

Now add concealer into the container. Keep in mind that the concealer should be of the same amount as the foundation. Again, opt for your everyday liquid concealer for this one as you will want to have a shade that matches your skin tone.Now, using a flat scooping utensil, scoop out the same amount of your face moisturizer or body butter. Adding moisturizer will help prevent your lids from drying up. Then add a drop of Aloe Vera gel into the formed mixture. Aloe vera gel helps in retaining oil at bay, as surplus oil can result in greasing. Now mix the mixture thoroughly using a toothpick, and you are done.

Eyeshadow Eyeshadow DIY Eyeshadow Guide

With numerous colors to choose from, eyeshadows are one of those make-up products you need to spend your money on. While there are several eyeshadow palettes in the market, it might lead to making a steep hole in your pocket. Here is your guide to designing the eyeshadow palette, your essential cosmetics at home.

First, add a scoop of coconut oil into a mixing container. Add some beeswax into the container as well. Now put some pressed or loose eyeshadow of your choice into the mixture.Now put the mixture in the microwave and heat it for 30 seconds. Take it out and mix it well and then put it back in the microwave for another 30 seconds. Pour the mixture into an empty EOS lip balm container and you are good to go.
