Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

 

Fashion is our thing. So, we obviously have love for the models that wear the clothes so well. Here are the catwalkers 2013 is all about…

1. She’s the face of Mulberry and the apple of Karl Lagerfeld’s eye. Plus, she has some of the best eyebrows we’ve ever seen. Cara Delevingne is It (with a capital “I”).

2. We were fans of Suki Waterhouse before we discovered she was Bradley Cooper’s rumored girlfriend. But it’s safe to say we liked her even more after we found out.

3. Sure, she’s only 5’7″, but with parents like Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall, Georgia May Jagger was destined for the catwalk regardless of her height.

4. Jourdan Dunn is getting noticed for more than her pretty face. She’s on a mission to demand more diversity in the fashion world. And we’re into that.

5. She has hair the color of skittles, and by the looks of her Instagram, a killer personality to match. Chloe Norgaard, you rock.

Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

We can’t stop talking about (and looking at pictures of) New York Fashion Week. And Pinterest is only perpetuating the problem.

1. With so many people rushing around, it’s important to know who’s who.

2. Runway makeup is reimagined every season.

3. That moment when you realize street style is almost competing with the collections.

4. These shots make us feel so much closer to the front row.

5. Only the best of the best? Don’t mind if we do.

How to Find the Best Bathing Suit for You

Whatever your shape, there’s a swimsuit out there that makes you feel confident enough to strut straight into the ocean without shorts, a towel, or the secret hope that no one’s looking. Read up on what works best for you.

The Fitting Room: Best Bathing Suit for Your Body Type

Pear Shape
You are: smaller on top and larger on the bottom.
Try: a two-piece with ruffles or prints on top and a solid bottom, or a one-piece with a low V-neck. These suits balance out your proportions and draw the eye upward. String-tie bottoms flatter (no digging in). Boyshorts? Steer clear.

Boyish Shape
You are: a “rectangle,” with a small top, hips, and bottom.
Try: anything that creates the illusion of curves. Think a halter top with fringe and low-rise hipster bottoms or a bikini with horizontal stripes and ruffles at the bust.

Hourglass Shape
You are: small-waisted with a fuller bust and hips.
Try: pretty much anything. Hourglass shapes are, by nature, proportional, so look for suits that keep those proportions balanced. If you choose ruffles, for example, choose both a ruffled top and bottom, not one or the other.

Apple Shape
You are: rounder at the middle.
Try: a high-cut bikini bottom to show off your lean legs, and a bandeau or tankini top to keep things proportional. Suits with side detailing, Lycra, and ruching are especially flattering.
