Hair Accessories Are Making A Comeback This Year

Hair Accessories  Are Making A Comeback This Year specifically fashion and beauty trends, it seems as if the saying "what's old is new again" is always relevant at one point or another. This season, such is the case with hair accessories.

It looks like all of the clips and headbands we all loved from the late '90s and early '00s are resurfacing, but this time, with a slightly cooler, grown-up edge to them. That's right, the winter hair accessory trends spotted on and off the runways this year feature a slew of styles from our youth that have been revived with a touch of glitz and glamour.





From zigzag headbands and scrunchies to jaw clips and bobby pins, I've rounded up the winter hair accessory trends that will have you convinced you should bling out your entire head with the hair accessories from your childhood

BLINGED-OUT SHAPE CLIPS


The good ol' snap clips that you used to wear in the fourth grade to hold your overgrown bangs back have made a very chic, sparkly comeback and are now available in all sorts of shapes, as seen in AW18 shows like Simone Rocha.


If you want to hop on this trend, like stat, you may wanna cop a hair clip like this Nadine Crystal Hair Clip from Baublebar, embellished with different rhinestones and gems and can be worn to hold back flyaways or added to any up-do as a shiny accent.

Your Ultimate Guide to White Sneakers and How to Wear Them

The simple monochromatic white sneaker combines versatility and fashion to make for a timeless piece, and almost everyone rocks their own version of it.  The shoe collection might include running shoes, formal shoes, and loafers, but there’s one shoe that absolutely belongs in your closet.
While they may not be necessarily appropriate for a wedding, they can be worn in almost every other instance.

White pairs well with everything and is definitely an attention grabber.  Though it may be impossible to keep them clean every day, getting them a little dirty can be an edgy look as well.  Take a look at our guide to see how to style them and what your sneaker pick says about you.


How to Wear Them
Casual







The most basic sneaker of all goes with literally everything, so this can create an overwhelming amount of choices.  Don’t try to overthink it and just sport them with your daily attire.  Most people will finish off their casual outfits with white sneakers because they’re just so easy.  Go for sweatshirts, t-shirts, and dark denim when going for a stroll on the boardwalk.  Anything dark will provide a great contrast against the sheer whiteness of your sneakers.   To put it quite simply, white sneakers are the classy and obvious choice for your ensemble.

Semi-Formal/Business Casual




This one can be a little tricky.  You’ll want to avoid white trainers, since that may be a little too casual for a semi-formal setting.  Bright and dark colored suits, along with properly hemmed pants, can go really well with white and make for a sophisticated look.

 Matching your shoes with a white pocket square can make the colors in your suit pop as well. Consider pairing a slim polo, fitted denim shirt, or dark colored button-up for a put together classic look.  Trousers should be tailored with either a slight or no break so the pants don’t extend over the sneaker.

Kris Jenner Transform Her Signature Hairstyle To Looks Completely Different

Kris Jenner isn't a regular mom, she's a cool mom. So of course, after her offspring Kylie and Khloe kicked off the new year with fresh new 'dos, the KarJenner matriarch was apparently struck with the "new year, new me" bug as well, and underwent a transformation of her own.



Over the weekend, celebrity (and frequent KarJenner) hairstylist Andrew Fitzsimons posted a selfie of the hair transformation he performed on Kris Jenner: a topknot with messy fringe bangs and soft brown highlights peppered throughout. "Something new 💕 A little 60’s vibe on the beautiful @KrisJenner today," he captioned the photo.


"She wanted to try something new and showed me a few reference photos of a similar style," Fitzsimons told Allure of the transformation. "Her hair is longer now than it has been in a while, so I was able to create this style without a wig. I prepped her hair with a strong-hold mousse, backcombed the hair on top, and formed it into a French twist. I did add just a couple of extensions in the back to give the topknot some additional volume. I secured everything with diamond bobby pins and sprayed all over with a high hold hair spray."

While Kris' new look is a departure from her signature black pixie cut, what really shocked fans was how similar she looked to her daughter, Kim Kardashian. And the dramatic brown smokey eye look, which has become Kim K's go-to, seals the deal. Fans even dug up old pictures of Kim with bangs to make the comparison.

How Often Should You Replace Your Underwear?

Photo Credit : @zumi.ng


As women, we regularly shop for fashion items and cosmetics. We think about buying a beautiful dress almost immediately we see it. And thanks to social media apps like Instagram, these things are always in our faces. So we’re always just a DM away from owning the latest fashion item. But when it comes to underwear, it’s an entirely different situation.
First off, bras and pants aren’t as aggressively advertised as clothes and accessories. Secondly, probably because we’re mostly the only ones who see our underwear, replacing them doesn’t seem so important, unlike our clothes and accessories that other people can see and admire.

But how often should you replace your underwear?
Bras and pants don’t necessarily have a shelf life or expiry date. And while you can wear your bras for as long as you want if there are no physical issues,  it might be better to replace them every six months to get the best out of them in terms of fit and lift.

While with pants, for hygienic reasons it’s safe to replace them every year.

How often should you replace your underwear

This is because washing your pants isn’t enough to get rid of all the bacteria on it. There are certain bacteria that can survive being washed. Even if you’re washing with hot water and hanging in the sun to dry. So to reduce the risk of getting infections, you might want to rethink how long you keep them.

How long your pants last will also depend on its fabric and quality. Cotton generally will last longer than lace and other fabrics. For obvious signs that it’s time to replace your underwear, look at the stretch, fit and aesthetic. If it begins to sag, not sit on your waist as well as it used to, or have holes in it, then it’s time to replace it. Also, if you’ll be ashamed to *coughs* let anyone see you naked in it, toss it!


Speaking of bras though, we know they can be uncomfortable sometimes. These tips will help you go braless with no issues.
