How to know what to wear

It’s not as tricky as you think.

There’s something comforting about an all-black outfit: it’s considered timeless, it looks great on everyone, and putting those pieces together each morning requires little to no effort. But what about all the other colors out there? The vibrant shades we frequently spot celebrities wearing (and wearing so freakin’ well), but seem slightly intimidating to pull off on our own?

Incorporating more color into your wardrobe might seem overwhelming and near-impossible at first, but the truth is it’s pretty easy — once you learn the rules. It all boils down to finding out which colors best flatter your skin tone, helping you stand out in a crowd and radiate from the inside out.

“Color is the number one most important thing to me when it comes to styling; it’s what makes my service unique,” stylist Cristina Ehrlich (who works with Mandy Moore, Laura Dern, and Natasha Lyonne) told us. “The first thing I do with a new client is study their skin tone and figure out what’s going to look best. It’s easy to wear black, but color can be so beautiful.”

Just like with makeup and hair, the key to finding your most flattering colors starts with skin tone, which can grouped into three categories: warm, cool, and neutral.

“Many people have a natural proclivity to understanding which one of those categories they fall into because it’s fairly obvious,” said Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute and author of More Alive with Color. “Beauty rules based on skin tone would also apply to what you would wear, which will make up the nucleus of your wardrobe.”

To make it simple, she broke things down for us, revealing the basics of which skin tones look best with certain colors, as well as which ones those same people should avoid.

Of course, the true number one rule of fashion is that there are no rules, so take these suggestions with a grain of salt and wear whatever you feel comfortable in.

How to Know What to Wear

For some people, being stylish and fashionably “in the know” comes second nature — these are the people who always seem to know what to wear and how to be more attractive just by choosing the right outfit.

While others have to work hard at it, there are also some people who just never get it. But don’t worry, because there’s help for those of us who are fashionably challenged.

You’ll find some do’s and don’ts and also just some ways that you can grab that stylish edge to help you naturally become a little more fashion-forward.

Here are tricks of fashionable, stylish use when choosing what to wear that can help you learn how to be more attractive and on-trend:

1. They know their own style and taste.

One of the most important lessons to learn about being stylish is that you still have to stay true to yourself. Copying a magazine or emulating someone else’s style just won’t do. You have to let you shine through.

Find styles that you feel comfortable with, choose colors that compliment your complexion, and find the best cuts and styles for your figure.

Bringing your own taste into the mix is what makes your fashion choices your own personal style and not just a copycat of a mannequin, model, or magazine. After all, we’ve all probably experienced buying an exact outfit you’ve seen somewhere else and then not liking it at all.

This is because your own personal flair and style must be mixed in with the trends and styles that are popular. Make it your own for the win!

2. They don’t live with the intention of being considered stylish.

They actually aren’t always focused on being stylish or trendsetting. Instead, most stylish people look great because they love clothes and fashion.

When you love something and it is your passion, it comes through above all else. The same goes for very stylish people. They just end up looking good and staying in fashion because they stay on top of the trends and just love fashion.

3. They aren’t slaves to fashion trends.

This habit is similar to number two in that stylish people aren’t always thinking, “How can I be in fashion today”?

The fashionable don’t just choose labels that are popular or wear what “everyone” else is wearing in an effort to look stylish. Instead, they just are stylish because of choosing their own look and staying true to their own tastes while still loving fashion in general.

However, if a trend comes around that just doesn’t match your personal taste, then skip that one and “On to the next,” as they say!

4. They aren’t copycats.

By its definition, being stylish also means being a trendsetter. You can’t accomplish this by just copying every outfit or label that you see online on a fashion blog, in a magazine, in a store, or on a friend.

The fashion-forward people take what they like most about the popular labels and trends and then blend it into their own style.

5. They can shop at any store.

Stylish people who know what their best looks are aren’t afraid to shop at any store.

Just because a store isn’t known for being trendy or having the hottest fashion labels does not mean that you can’t find something at that store.

Look for a style, design, or color you like, not a label or brand.

6. They understand that a label or brand doesn’t “make” the fashion.

Those who are known for being stylish aren’t slaves to fashion trends and they aren’t slaves to labels either.

Everyone knows that brands can cost more and that there are always knock offs that can help you achieve the same look for less. Since you want to have more choices in your wardrobe, buying on a budget can help you achieve that.

The label is never necessary to look stylish.

7. They always look less done-up than everyone else.

For the stylish, looking that way should come with little effort. No need to spend hours primping and priming yourself to look picture perfect. Life isn’t a magazine cover, so a loose scarf or a little tousled hair never hurt anyone’s style.

If it looks like you tried too hard, that isn’t actually stylish at all then. Sometimes this can also be achieved by taking the alternate route. Try wearing a pair of sneakers instead of high heels or don a pants suit instead of a cocktail dress to your next party.

Following rules to be stylish goes against the whole idea of fashion. Most fashion came to be because of breaking the rules and standing out. When you truly love fashion, your personal style can come through, and you can feel comfortable and stylish in anything in your closet!

Baby carrier safety is the most important aspect of choosing the best baby carriers for your infant. For safety, the brand or model of sling you use actually matters far less than how well it is fitted and adjusted around you and your baby.

We’ve worked with Emily Williamson, professional Carrying Consultant and award-winning entrepreneur of baby carrier brand Izmi, as well as consulted information provided the National Childbirth Trust, to bring you all the essential information you need to know on baby carrier safety.

Whatever sling, wrap or carrier you choose to use with your little one, here’s what you need to know and to check to keep your baby safe and secure.

What makes a sling or baby carrier safe?

Emily Williamson provides the following baby carrier safety tips along with a ‘T.I.C.K.S’ checklist for parents to remember when baby wearing:

  • A safe sling or carrier is one which secures a baby so that they cannot fall. It should support their body to ensure that their airways are protected.
  • A good quality wrap or carrier will be made from materials and techniques that have been tested to hold the weight of a baby. Used correctly, your baby will not fall.
  • To support your baby’s body safely, preventing any flopping or slumping which could compromise a baby’s airways, a carrier needs to fit snugly around both you and your baby.
  • Your baby’s spine and head should be fully stabilised against the movements of your body. Their face and nose should always be uncovered.

The industry standard T.I.C.K.S. guidelines give you a clear checklist to follow to ensure that your baby is held safely in any sling, wrap or carrier:

How to Know What to Wear

What are the risks of using slings?

Risks of using baby carriers or slings are mainly associated with dropping or positional asphyxiation (when a baby’s position in a sling or carrier leaves them unable to breathe).

As a result of these risks, there are tight safety standards for slings and carriers in the UK.

There are two main things anyone wearing a baby must ensure at all times to make sure a child in a baby carrier is safe:

  • Ensure there is no risk of your baby falling
  • Ensure your baby’s head is supported and airways are clear

Read on for more information about these essential aspects of baby carrier safety…

Baby carrier safety: the need to know essentials

First and foremost, ensure there is no risk of your baby falling

  • Make sure that the carrier and carrying position you are using is appropriate for your child’s age or stage.
  • Ensure that all buckles are fully clicked closed and fastened in the correct places.
  • In a wrap, ensure that the fabric is fully supporting your babies back and bum.
  • Your wrap or carrier is adjusted to tightly hold your baby high and snug against your chest.
  • Follow manufacturer’s instructions or seek advice from a professional carrying consultant.

Support your baby’s head and airways

  • Check your baby’s head is supported in line with their spine, and will stay stable as you move around.
  • You can use your carrier head-rest, or wrap fabric to stabilise your baby’s head and neck. You could also support behind their neck using a rolled up muslin square, or other padding if your baby needs additional support.
  • Never cover your baby’s face, nose or mouth with fabric. Make sure you can always see that your baby’s face and nose are clear from obstruction.
  • Make sure your baby is held high and snug on your body. Their head should be close enough for you to kiss the top of it.
  • Fasten or tie your carrier tightly to support your baby close against your body and prevent them from dropping or slumping.

How to Know What to Wear

When can I carry my baby in a carrier? Are they safe for newborns?

In theory, babies can be carried in a baby carrier when they are newborns. So you can start carrying your baby as soon as you feel comfortable and ready to do so.

However, some experts believe you should not carry your infant in a baby carrier until their neck muscles are strong enough to support their head. This is at about 4 or 5 months old.

Professional Carrying Consultant Emily Williamson advocates that “yes baby carriers are safe for newborns”.

But, she also reiterates that if you are carrying a newborn you must make sure that whatever make or model of baby carrier you are using, it fully supports your baby’s head and airways.

She also adds: “Babies born prematurely and/or with a low birth weight are at greater risk of suffocation. Take extra care, and seek advice from a health and/or carrying professional before using your carrier.”

Can I breastfeed safely in a sling?

Yes, you can breastfeed your baby in a sling. Emily advises: “When breastfeeding make sure that the baby’s spine is supported and no fabric covers their head. Always monitor your baby while feeding. Return them to a higher, tighter position with their head above your breasts as soon as they finish.”

When it comes to breastfeeding a baby in a sling, the NCT advises: “Be aware of the risks. Make sure you check the manufacturer’s instructions as some suggest you don’t breastfeed in their slings.”

They also advise mothers to keep in mind the following tips:

  1. Make sure you check your baby can breathe easily and that there are no trip hazards for you.
  2. Support your baby at all times.
  3. Change your baby’s position after feeding. Their head should be facing up and clear of the sling and your body.
  4. You can do this vertically or in a more laidback position. While you will have to use your hands, it can give you more freedom to move. It also frees up one hand to help you get your latch sorted.

Baby carrier safety and developmental dysplasia of the hip

There is still further research that needs to be carried out to confirm if certain baby carriers and the way we carry babies influences their hip development.

The NCT says: “We don’t yet know whether any particular positions or carriers are good or bad for your baby’s hips.”

The spread squat (also known as the jockey position or M-position) is the recommended position for your infant to be in whilst you wear your baby.

The NCT explains: “The spread squat is where the baby has their thighs spread around the wearer’s torso. The baby also has their hips bent so their knees are slightly higher than their buttocks, or at buttock level with the thighs supported.”

The International Hip Dysplasia Institute (IHDI) also recommends the ‘M-position’ for baby carrying. They describe the position as: “Thighs spread around the mother’s torso and the hips bent so the knees are slightly higher than the buttocks with the thighs supported.”

When it comes to creating outfits, the key words here are layering and accessorizing. Many women feel that their outfits are incomplete because they don’t take this final step. Think of it this way — putting clothes on and being dressed is like a simple, plain cake. Layering and accessorizing are the icing and decorations. Sure the plain cake will do, but how much better will the fully iced and decorated one look?

Raise your hand if this sounds familiar.

“I’ve got a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear.”

“I go shopping but come home empty handed or buy the same things.”

“I get dressed but never feel put together.”

“I don’t feel comfortable in my own clothes.”

“I’m confused, frustrated and a little discouraged.”

Whether you’ve raised your hand or not, I can pretty much guarantee that at least one of these statements rings true. Hey, as a Stylist even I can relate. Sometimes you know what the problem is but don’t know how to solve it. So, what do you do when you don’t know what to do? You go back to basics.

Step 1. The first thing to do is get clear on your style. You need to know what’s you and what’s not. This isn’t something anyone else can help you with. It’s got to come from within. You can always get help fine tuning later, but the likes and dislikes need to be all yours.

Not sure what your style is? Start observing others, browse through the shops, take a look on Pinterest or Instagram. Start compiling photos or images of items that catch your eye or that you like. Once you’ve got a number of them, look for similarities or try defining them with words that describe the look or feel of the style.

Don’t worry if you find that you have more than one style. Most of us do. Just get very clear on the absolutes or you’ll never be able to shop effectively, dress in a way that feels like you or feel comfortable in your own clothes.

Step 2. The second thing to do is learn how to dress for your body shape. If you’re wearing something that doesn’t suit your shape or if you don’t know how to wear it so that it does, it’s not going to look good on, and you won’t feel good in it.

Furthermore, if you don’t know which cuts or styles suit your body shape, you won’t know what to buy. Shopping will continue to be a challenge and you’ll end up doing what you always do – buying the same things and being disappointed when you still feel like you have nothing to wear.

Step 3. Once you’ve got the first two steps sorted, it’s time to clean out your closet. Get rid of all the clothes that aren’t suited to your style or your shape. Leave behind only the very best pieces for you.

The last thing you need every single morning is to rifle through a bunch of clothes, trying to figure out which work for you and which don’t. How frustrating and time consuming is that?

Step 4. The last step is to learn how to put outfits together. If you consider yourself completely useless when it comes to this final step, don’t be discouraged. Either get some help or do some research. Flip through some magazines or hop onto the internet to find outfits that you like and dissect them. Break them down to see which pieces are used and how they’re worn.

When it comes to creating outfits, the key words here are layering and accessorizing. Many women feel that their outfits are incomplete because they don’t take this final step. Think of it this way — putting clothes on and being dressed is like a simple, plain cake. Layering and accessorizing are the icing and decorations. Sure the plain cake will do, but how much better will the fully iced and decorated one look?

Can you see how important it is to go back to basics when you’re feeling stuck or struggling? If you don’t have the fundamentals figured out, you can’t possibly shop or get dressed with ease, and you definitely won’t feel good in your clothes.

So the next time you find yourself standing in front of your closet, confused, frustrated and a little discouraged, remember this — go back to basics, start from scratch, and you’ll be the best looking cake on the block. With sprinkles of course.

Gov. Tim Walz announced an executive order Wednesday that requires Minnesotans to wear masks to help curb the spread of COVID-19, but there are still many questions about the order. Below is what you need to know about the order.

When does Minnesota’s mask mandate go into effect?

At 11:59 p.m. on Friday, July 24 .

What does the mandate mean for me?

How to Know What to Wear

You are required to wear a face covering in all indoor businesses and public indoor spaces, unless you are alone. This applies to both employees and customers.

Can employees remove masks in private offices?

Yes, you can remove a mask while working alone in a closed office or cubicle with walls above face height, as long as social distancing is maintained.

How long will the mandate be in effect?

There is no specified end date. It remains in effect until the state’s peacetime emergency ends or the mandate is canceled by a proper authority.

Is there an age requirement?

The mandate applies to everyone 5 years of age and older. Those under the age of 2 should not wear a mask due to risk of suffocation.

Who is exempt from the executive order?

People with certain disabilities, medical or mental health conditions preventing them from wearing a mask can be exempt, although there is no specified list of excused medical problems. People who are exempt should consider alternatives to masks, such as clear face shields or staying home.

Who is tasked with enforcing the mandate?

It is the responsibility of businesses to make sure workers and customers are complying.

Can a business ask you to prove a medical condition?

No, they cannot require proof of your condition or ask about the nature of it.

If a customer is not wearing a mask and does not have a legitimate exemption, what steps should businesses take?

Businesses can take “appropriate disciplinary action,” including asking a customer to wear a face covering, declining service, offering alternatives (such as curbside pick-up) or calling police, if necessary. Businesses should not physically restrain or remove people in any way that is outside their normal business practices.

Does the mandate apply to churches and other places of worship?

Are kids in schools required to wear masks?

Yes, kindergarten through 12 th- grade students should wear masks.

Are you required to wear a mask while using public transportation or ride-sharing services?

Do you need to wear a mask in your own home or car?

Can you carry a handgun while wearing a mask?

Yes, if you have a legal permit to carry.

Should you confront someone who is not wearing a mask?

Not unless you are a business owner or manager responsible for worker and customer compliance. If you are a member of the public, simply keep your distance.

Is there a penalty for not wearing a mask in the required settings?

Yes, individuals who do not comply could face a petty misdemeanor, with a fine up to $100. Businesses (and their owners and management) face heightened penalties, including up to 90 days in jail, $1,000 fine and up to $25,000 in civil penalties, along with regulatory enforcement actions. State officials said they hope the public will voluntarily comply with the order and enforcement is not the goal.

Should I report violations of the executive order?

You can contact local law enforcement. For violations related to worker health and safety, you can contact the Department of Labor and Industry. To report restaurant, pool or hotel violations, contact a local public health agency. More information on reporting violations can be found here.

Where can I find more details about Minnesota’s masking requirement?

Before my birthday dinner party last weekend – if you haven’t read it, you can catch up on all the epic details here – a couple of my friends sent me messages asking, “What should I wear?!”

My reply was this –

I’m wearing a knee-length dress and sparkly earrings but honestly, anything goes. Whatever you feel comfortable and fabulous in is always the best option x

How to Know What to Wear

what to wear when you don’t know what to wear

Not knowing what to wear is a very common thing. It happens to me all.the.time.

Prior to an event that’s not usually part of my everyday life the following questions may or may not run through my mind.

Will I look too OTT in a dress? Are jeans too casual? Should I wear high heels or are flats ok? Maybe wedges? A handbag or a clutch? Where IS that clutch I bought last year? Oh, there it is. Yeah, that’s not going to work. Great. I have no idea what to wear. Probably best if I just don’t go.

I had a feeling it might.

But don’t worry, I’m here to help. In just a few quick and easy steps you’ll know exactly what to wear when you don’t know what to wear. I promise.

How to Know What to Wear

1. Check for a dress code

Sounds obvious, but often in times of panic we forget the obvious. And yes, not knowing what to wear definitely counts as a time of panic.

If you’ve received an invitation, check for a dress code. If it’s something obscure like ‘vintage garden party with an 80’s vibe’

  1. please add me to the invite list because that sounds a lot of fun
  2. google and Pinterest will help get your outfit sorted

2. Consider the venue

Will you be outside or indoors? Under shade or in air-conditioned comfort? Will there be a lot of walking involved or can you sit all night long?

These are all very important things to consider and once you have the answers, you’re well on your way to knowing what to wear.

How to Know What to Wear

What I wore to an outdoor concert (Adele) – T-shirt, shorts, comfortable closed in shoes, hair up in an attempt to beat the hot and humid conditions, cross over bag

How to Know What to Wear

My shoe of choice when there is a lot of standing and/or walking involved – FRANKiE4 EMMA heel. Find them here.

3. Check the weather

The weather app on your phone is your what to wear BFF. Check it a week or so before the big event and then a few days before – yes, the forecast can change – and plan your outfit accordingly.

4. Scroll through Instagram

Scrolling through the various fashion and style hashtags on insta is a fantastic was to discover new outfit and style ideas.

The official Kirsten and co. Instagram hashtag is #sharedmystyle if you want to check it out or join in. For more fashion and interiors hashtags, head to this post.

5. Forget the rules

When I say ‘forget the rules’ I don’t mean forget them in a disrespectful way.

For example, wearing white to a wedding is only ever acceptable if

  1. you’re the bride
  2. you’re the bride
  3. you’re the bride

But all those other rules that might be ingrained in us for whatever reason? They can exit the building anytime you’re ready.

Wear what makes you happy, what makes you feel fabulous, what brings you joy. Life is too short to be worried about bright colours or horizontal stripes or leopard print. If you love it, wear it!

How to Know What to Wear

What I wore to the last Kirsten and co. charity event – Renee Loves Frances OTS dress, with a pair of statement earrings by Nicole Fendel. Shoes were a very comfortable pair of Zoe Kratzmann’s featuring a low block heel and neutral tan colour. Catch a glimpse of what others wore to the event in this post – Coffee With Kirsten – a fabulous afternoon with the best people.

The advice offered in this post is quite general. If you’ve got a specific event or function coming up that you would like help with, leave a comment here or on the Facebook page and I will whip up a blog post for you!

Is there an event coming up in your life that you would like some outfit help with? What do you wear when you don’t know what to wear?

Although coronavirus cases are continuing to rise around the U.S., some states have moved to re-opening restaurants, movie theaters, stores, and more, with some restrictions, of course. But as you go about in this post-quarantine coronavirus world, how can you practice the best safety measures? In short, you’ll need to keep wearing masks when you shop during coronavirus reopenings. Among other safety measures, wearing a mask when you leave your house, and keeping it on until you return, is the best, most straightforward way to keep yourself and those around you safe if you end up having to leave.

Currently, the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) still recommends that you wear a cloth face mask in public settings, as well as when you’re around people you don’t live with. By wearing a mask, you greatly decrease the chances you have of both contracting and spreading the virus. “The mask acts as a barrier, capturing some of the expelled, virus-containing droplets, in effect reducing the amount of virus an infectious individual puts into the air,” Dr. Jeffrey Shaman, a professor of Environmental Health Sciences at Columbia University, tells Elite Daily. “For individuals who are not sick, the mask acts as a barrier, reducing opportunities for droplets and aerosols to enter the nose and mouth.”

Although it can’t be easily put into numbers exactly how much safer wearing a mask makes your public activities, Dr. Shaman does say that wearing a mask is “the single, most important personal and public health measure one can take when out for essential services.” Considering you’ll be in an enclosed space with strangers while shopping, look at a mask as an imperative — an essential part of maintaining public health. While you still should attempt to socially distance once in stores, a mask will help to slightly mitigate the risk if you’re unable to. Even if you’re in a city where masks aren’t required, it’s also important to pay close attention to each individual shop’s policies, and to adhere to their guidelines closely, particularly about masks and distancing.

As for when you can stop wearing a mask while shopping, that could be a while. Masks won’t be necessary “when the pandemic is effectively over — either because there is an effective vaccine or treatment that has been deployed, or because enough people have been infected that transmission is unlikely,” Dr. Shaman says. And even so, there may be surges of coronavirus at different points in the coming months that will make it so face masks will be imperative for longer. According to Biospace, the vaccine will probably take a year to 18 months until it is ready for safe, widespread use, so you’ll probably be wearing your mask for at least most of 2021.

Showing courtesy for those around you and keeping yourself, your friends, and your family safe are all of the utmost importance, and the best way to promote this safety is by wearing your mask and keeping a safe distance from others. While shopping does put you in close quarters with others, you can still enjoy a shopping trip if you stay careful and alert.

If you think you’re showing symptoms of coronavirus, which include fever, shortness of breath, and cough, call your doctor before going to get tested. If you’re anxious about the virus’s spread in your community, visit the CDC for up-to-date information and resources, or seek out mental health support. You can find all Elite Daily’s coverage of coronavirus here.

Unique Invitations by Deborah Blog

How to Know What to Wear to a Wedding

Has a wedding invite ever left you clueless about what to wear? Don’t worry, the info you need is likely there—you just have to know how to interpret the dress code wording. Whether it’s black tie, white tie or something in between, here’s a basic cheat sheet for deciding what to wear.

If the invite says “white tie”

This is the most formal of all wedding dress codes (think state dinners and the Oscars).

He should wear:
A tuxedo, a long black jacket with tails, a white pique vest and a bow tie. Formal black shoes and even white gloves for dancing are appropriate.

She should wear:
A formal, full-length ball gown. Glamorous makeup and dramatic jewelry and hair are appropriate.

If the invite says “black tie”

This is the next most formal wedding dress code and usually means the wedding is an evening affair.

He should wear:
A tuxedo. A black bow tie, cummerbund and patent leather shoes are also suggested.

She should wear:
A chic cocktail dress or a long evening gown. The bride, wedding party or close friends can help answer questions about the appropriate dress length.

If the invite says “formal” or “black tie optional”

The wording here suggests something slightly less formal than black tie. This means that a tuxedo isn’t required, but the event is still formal enough for one to be appropriate.

He should wear:
A tuxedo or formal dark suit and tie.

She should wear:
A long evening dress, dressy suit or formal cocktail-length dress.

The invite says “cocktail attire”

This is slightly less formal than black tie and black tie optional, which means no tux required for men and no floor-length gown required for women (unless you’d like to wear a long dress).

He should wear:

A suit and tie. Lean toward darker hues in chillier months, and feel free to opt for lighter grays or blues in warmer weather.

She should wear:

A cocktail dress or dressy suit or jumpsuit.

The invite says “beach formal”

This suggests an elegant beach wedding—so dress to impress, but also dress for the elements (sun, sand and water). Anything you’d wear to a nice restaurant on a summer night is appropriate.

He should wear:
A summer suit with a linen shirt (no ties required), linen pants (or khakis) and sandals.

She should wear:
A formal summer sundress at tea or knee length with flat sandals. Makeup and hair can be natural.

The invite says “semiformal” or “dressy casual”

Depending on the time of the event, you’ll want to dress somewhere between formal and casual. Wear darker, more formal hues for an evening fete; opt for light colors and fabrics for a daytime wedding.

He should wear:
A suit and tie, dark or light depending on the season and time of day.

She should wear:
A cocktail dress or a dressy skirt and top.

The invite says “casual” or “daytime”

Generally, casual means anything goes—but jeans, shorts and tank tops are probably not appropriate unless they’re specifically noted as acceptable. For the purposes of wedding wear, assume business casual to be on the safe side.

He should wear:
Dress pants with a button-down shirt or polo.

She should wear:
A summer sundress or a skirt or pants with a nice blouse. Makeup and hair can be natural.

How to Know What to Wear

  • When buying facial sunscreen, find one that is at least SPF 30, broad spectrum, and water resistant.
  • Be strict about reapplying every two hours, even if you’re just having a day in the office.
  • If you have sensitive skin, you might want to use a physical sunscreen over a chemical one.
  • Visit Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Buying sunscreen can be an overwhelming process. There are hundreds of lotions, sprays, and powders, ranging from very cheap to highly pricey, and it’s difficult to know what you need, and what is just a marketing gimmick.

But that doesn’t mean purchasing skincare isn’t a summer necessity.

“Sunscreen protects you from skin cancer as well as sun damage,” New York-based dermatologist Debra Jaliman told Insider. “After you wash your face in the morning, you should apply your sunscreen. It is the first step before using moisturizer.”

As summer approaches, and people start looking to replenish their supply of sunscreen, here’s what you need to know.

If you don’t have sensitive skin, you can use the sunscreen you use on your body for your face too

“Certainly if you only have one sunscreen, you can use your body sunscreen on your face,” says New York-based dermatologist Marisa Garshick.

“The protective ingredients are typically the same, but sometimes people find that the sunscreens formulated for the body aren’t as elegant or easy to rub into the face.”

Facial sunscreens are oil free, so they’re more gentle

People with sensitive skin may also find that sunscreens formulated for the body are irritating to the skin, and may cause breakouts. “Sunscreens designed for the face are often non-comedogenic (or, oil free), so they’re not going to clog the pores. And sometimes they include other additives that make it more gentle on the skin,” Garshick said.

For people with sensitive skin, Jaliman recommends avoiding sunscreens that use drying alcohol as an ingredient and turning to a cream-based sunscreen as opposed to an alcohol-based one.

When choosing sunscreen, know the difference between chemical and physical sunscreen types

Chemical sunscreens, which typically contain octinoxate and avobenzone, work by absorbing UV light. The active chemicals in this sunscreen turn UV light into non-harmful rays of heat, which is then released from the skin.

Physical or mineral sunscreens, which primarily use zinc and titanium as their active ingredients, are recommended for children and people with sensitive skin. They reflect UV rays, serving as a barrier that prevents the rays from getting into the skin.

Some sunscreens will say physical or mineral blocker on the bottle, but if it doesn’t, you can see if your sunscreen is a physical or chemical type by looking at the ingredients.

“I tell my patients that mineral base sunscreens are going to be better tolerated than the chemical based type of sunscreen,” dermatologist Kathleen Suozzi, of the Yale School of Medicine, told Insider. She recommends mineral sunscreens to all her patients, to avoid skin irritation.

Chemical blockers have been controversial in recent years, with some research showing they can have a negative effect on marine life, causing defects in mussels and dolphins. Chemical sunscreens have been banned in Hawaii since 2018. Another 2019 study found that chemicals from sunscreen can get absorbed into the bloodstream at potentially unsafe levels.

But chemical sunscreens are still officially recommended, because at this point researchers don’t have enough data to definitively conclude that chemical sunscreens are harmful.

Physical sunscreen is often pasty white, but there are now tinted versions for darker skintones

People with darker skin have sometimes been told to use chemical sunscreen to avoid the white cast physical sunscreen can give skin.

“Because physical sunscreens reflect light, they have a whitening property on the skin,” said Suozzi. “So your traditional zinc-based white sunscreen that is like white paste is not for wearable, particularly for patients with darker skin.”

But there are tinted sunscreens out on the market now, which can counter the whitening effect of physical sunscreen, although they have their own issues too. Sunscreen must be applied evenly across the entire face, but people tend to wear tinted sunscreen like makeup, applying lightly.

And remember that chemical sunscreens should be applied 15 minutes prior to going in the sun, as it takes some time to activate, while physical blockers do not need time to activate.

Reapply sunscreen every two hours, even if you’re inside

The sun is an area of the body that experiences a lot of cumulative sun exposure and, and damage over time, so it is important to protect the face every single day, even if you’re not going to the beach.

“I always tell my patients that even on a normal routine day, it is important to be reapplying, every day, every two hours, even if somebody is just in the office or going for a walk,” said Garshick, adding that it is also important to always reapply after sweating, exercising, or getting wet.

Don’t skimp on the sunscreen

When you apply, make sure you’re applying enough. There have been studies that show that people generally aren’t applying enough sunscreen to get the level of SPF protection the package promises.

For a whole body application, Garshick recommends enough sunscreen to fill a shot glass, and for a facial application she recommends a nickel sized amount.

You don’t need sunscreen that’s over 30 SPF

“SPF, which stands for sun protective factor, is actually measured by actually applying doses of UV light to the skin and measuring how much redness occurs in the absence or presence of the sunscreen,” said Suozzi.

But as SPF gets higher, the benefits do not increase exponentially, because any sunscreen over SPF 30 is blocking close over 95% of UVB rays. A sunscreen with 60 SPF offers a similar amount of protection to a sunscreen with 30 SPF, but sometimes dermatologists will recommend sunscreen with higher SPF as a protective measure because they know people tend to skimp on sunscreen.

“If you find that your sunscreen is too thick or too greasy, avoid the very high levels of SPF,” Suozzi recommended. “Try a SPF have closer to the 30 range to see if it increases wearability.”

Look for broad spectrum on the package

“UVA and UVB are both rays that are emitted from the sun,” said Garshick. “SPF only protects you from UVB rays. If a sunscreen is providing coverage for UVA as well, it’s usually going to be labeled as broad spectrum.”

UVB rays can cause sunburn, skin cancer, and redness, but UVA rays also pose a cancer risk, and can cause burning and redness, so it is important to protect against both.

“The bottom line is when buying facial sunscreen, find one that is broad spectrum, SPF 30 or higher, see if it’s water resistant, and if not, plan accordingly,” said Garshick. “And always make sure to reapply roughly every two hours.”

When it comes to custom patches for jackets, the first example that comes to mind for many people is motorcycle club patches. Colorful patches often adorn the back of riders’ jackets, indicating membership in a club.

Those who are not members of a club might not be aware that there are specific rules for patches within those clubs. In some cases, even those who are not club members could face some unpleasant surprises for not following the rules.

The first key is to know the difference between a riding (or riders’) club and a motorcycle club. Typically, a riding club is a loose organization of people who like to ride. It may be geared toward owners of certain bikes (Harley Owners’ Group – HOG, for example.) Members might live in a specific area or belong to a specific profession, such as law enforcement.

Riding clubs generally have few, if any membership requirements, and are easy to join. You can purchase custom patches for jackets and be accepted immediately.

Motorcycle clubs, on the other hand, have more stringent requirements to join, and more responsibilities for the members. Patches are earned, not purchased, and can take a substantial commitment of time and energy to win. It can take years to reach full membership in some motorcycle clubs.

Motorcycle clubs most often wear the classic three-piece patches on the back of their jackets. The top panel or “rocker” shows the name of the club. The large centerpiece shows the club emblem or logo, and the bottom rocker shows the club’s home territory. A small rectangle with “MC” in it might or might not be present as well.

Riding club patches normally have just the large center emblem and sometimes a top rocker. A bottom rocker is not recommended for riding clubs. Some motorcycle clubs are quite territorial, and a bottom rocker could lead to misunderstandings.

The most important rule for non-motorcycle club members to remember is never pretend to be something you’re not. If you try to act like an actual member of a motorcycle club without being one, you’re likely to pay the consequences. Better to be yourself and follow proper patch etiquette at all times. And never – ever – wear motorcycle club patches if you are not a full member of the club.

Beyond the back patches, custom patches for jackets are less restricted. If you want to wear a flag patch, name patch, political statement or even a funny patch, you’re in good shape. You can put those just about anywhere on a jacket or vest.

It pays to get the best quality patches for your jackets. If you’re riding, the patches will be subjected to heat, rain, wind and other factors that can wear them down. Look to a supplier such as Patches 4 Less to give you the highest quality materials you can buy for all your custom patches. With sturdy backing twill and top-quality embroidery thread, well-made patches can last as long as the jacket they’re attached to. They also don’t cost any more than you’d pay for lesser patches from another supplier.

When it comes to custom patches for jackets, just follow the basics. Get good quality patches, be aware of the meanings patches can have, and enjoy the ride!

How to Know What to Wear

Have you ever received a wedding invitation in the mail that left you completely in the dark about what to you are supposed to wear? From “creative black tie” and “beach chic,” the wording can feel like a code. Since no wedding guest wants to be over or under dressed, here are the clues you should look for in determining what is the most appropriate and stylish attire for the wedding.

Clue 1: It says “Black Tie” on the invitation
The most obvious clue. Black Tie is the granddaddy of them all. If the invitation specifically states black tie, this means evening gowns and tuxedos or very well tailored black suits. If it is black tie and in the summer, women can get away with cocktail length dresses in the dressiest fabrics.

Clue 2: The style of the invitation
If there is no mention of attire on the invitation, you can use the invitation as a clue. The most formal weddings often come along with invitations thick enough that they could be used as a weapon and feature letter-pressed or foil-embossed print methods in the most traditional fonts. At the same time, a digitally printed or emailed invitation often precedes a less formal affair.

Clue 3: The time of the reception
Wedding etiquette dictates that black tie events don’t start before six in the evening. While not everyone planning a wedding will follow this rule, a clue that the wedding is semiformal or casual is that it starts in the morning or early afternoon.

Clue 4: The location of the ceremony
It would be strange and uncomfortable to stand in the sand on a 90 degree day wearing a tuxedo or hosiery, so if the wedding ceremony takes place on the beach it is probably somewhat casual or beach chic. Note there is a difference between at the beach and on the beach. A ceremony taking place at a beach resort, but not technically in the sand might still be formal. On the flip side, if the ceremony takes place in a house of worship, you can assume a certain amount of formality and would not want to dress too casually out of respect for the venue.

So now that you figured out the formality of the wedding, what do you actually wear? Here are some of my personal photos to help you visualize the differences between these styles on the same people.

Black tie: Tuxedos for men and formal gowns in dressy fabrics for women. Many women will choose to have their hair and makeup professionally done for black tie events. If you are traveling for the wedding there are companies like GLAMSQUAD and beGlammed that can come right to your hotel room.

How to Know What to Wear

Formal: Dark suits or tuxedos are appropriate for men; women wear dresses or formal evening pants in colors of their choice.

How to Know What to Wear

Cocktail: Men wear suits or sports jackets and pants. Women wear dresses or dressy pants. This is probably the most common attire for weddings.

Casual or Beach chic: This attire is casual and appropriate at outdoor events. Men wear light colored suits, khaki pants and Tommy Bahama-style shirts. Women wear sun dresses in bright colors. Shorts would not be considered appropriate, however flip flops and wedges could be. If you are going to be standing in grass, sand or uneven surfaces, you might want to consider Solemates to protect your shoes.

How to Know What to Wear

If you have any other thoughts on how to best determine the attire for a wedding, please share them in the comments.

The Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS) has produced posters, leaflets and other materials to spread the word on keeping safe this Halloween.

How to Know What to Wear

In its new campaign, OPSS is providing advice to help consumers to buy safe costumes and trick or treat safely.

Look for the CE mark on the label

Fancy dress costumes should be tested for flammability. The CE mark certifies it’s been tested.

Buy from a trusted store or website

If you’re shopping online, check who you are buying from. If it’s a third-party seller, find out as much about them as you can.

Read all the safety information

This includes on the label and online. If it’s clothing for small children, check for laces, drawstrings, and small, trailing or floaty parts.

Look for ratings and reviews from other customers

Other customers may have given feedback. Be savvy.

Is it safe? Check it hasn’t been recalled

Visit and check the costume hasn’t been recalled. It’s quick to do and could make a big difference.

Speak up if you find an issue

You can report safety issues to the retailer, website, seller and your local Citizens Advice team.

I see plenty of women recently carrying midi skirts. It is truthful to say, this backside is a must have piece to put on this summer time. In at this time’s put up I would like you to take a look at my favourite 17 methods how one can put on your midi skirt this scorching season. Final yr this fashion has confirmed to be very fashionable amongst fashionistas, that is why we should always attempt it out. A midi size often hits proper under the knee, or just a little bit longer. It is a breezy-easy garment to remain tremendous stylish and funky.

Simplify your life. Declutter your mind. Connect with your heart.

by Courtney Carver

Because I created a fashion challenge, people assume that I’m going to tell them what to wear. Or, they think I’m going to tell them what I wear.

Neither of those things are going to happen (except for this one time when I told you what NOT to wear).

How to Know What to Wear

What I wear is the least interesting thing about me, and where I got what I’m wearing or what I spent on it is even less interesting than that.

I didn’t always feel that way. I used to talk about the great deals I got (even though they weren’t that great). I asked people where they got their shoes/clothes/handbags. I believed that what I wore would make me look or feel beautiful, smart and loved. I strived to keep up with the trends and bought what the magazines suggested. I bought things on sale when stores sent me “preferred customer” offers. I played the game.

I’m not playing anymore.

We have better things to talk about than “what to wear”

If our focus is on what we wear, or how we look or what other people think about what we wear or how we look, what isn’t getting our focus and attention?

I share my looks on Instagram and write about my experience with capsule wardrobes, not as a prescriptive but to demonstrate the benefits of dressing and living with less.

Benefits like …

  • easier mornings
  • saving money
  • more confidence
  • less decision fatigue
  • more focus and attention for what matters to you

I don’t share these things because I think you should wear what I wear, or because I want you to buy new things for your closet. I don’t recommend buying anything new if you are just starting Project 333. Over the first 3 months, your idea of what you want or need in your closet and what you like wearing will change. It’s a transformative three months.

The one thing you need to know about what you wear

If you are like I was … hoping something new will make you feel something you don’t, or be someone you are not, this is the one thing you need to know about what you wear. You will never find something to wear that makes you feel beautiful, smart or loved until you believe you already are. And once you believe, you won’t need it from your clothes or other belongings anymore.

When you find your confidence and worth on the inside instead of the outside …

You won’t be playing the game anymore.

You’ll have focus and attention for what really matters.

i only wear a little mascara and eyeliner. ive never worn foundation and was wondering how to know which shade to choose and which is the best? i also dont really know how to apply it. i have a fair/.olive type skin tone, any suggestions/tips?

5 Answers

How to Know What to Wear

why not visit a makeup counter in a store and explain your problem?

don’t go for a cheap one, they look cheap and don’t do your skin any favours. i have olive skin and i like boots no 7 mousse foundation which is about £13 i think. the shade i use is almond.

go into a store and try out the testers, see what shade and texture suits you best.

applying it is easy, use your fingers and rub it evenly over your skin. get yourself a pressed powder as well (revlon do a nice one in medium shade) and apply over your foundation with a makeup sponge to make it even and give your skin a matte look.

once you’ve done that, get yourself a bronzer or blusher, whichever you prefer as this’ll give you some colour. i like benefit’s bronzer called hoola. get quite a big brush to apply it and apply it to the apple of the cheek (not the cheekbone). best way is to smile and then you can see the apple of the cheek clearly.

i tend to wear i natural tinted moisturiser and a foundation that matches my skin

If you want my opinion, dont use a liquid foundation because most of the time it makes you look orange and you go all blotchy 😛

when applying the moisturiser, just rub it on and around your face gently with your fingers (dont put alot on) then apply the foundation. When you put foundation on, dont use a small brush because it doesn’t work as well. To make it look good on you, make sure you aren’t patchy and also apply it to under your chin and the bits next to it so you dont get a slag line XD

also, put moisturiser and foundation on first, THEN eye liner, mascara and anything else 🙂

Go to a shop and test it on your arm and try and get something that matches you’re natural skin tone as foundation should enhance natural beauty. not smother it. Pick a foundation that blends in well to your skin

sometimes the people at the makeup store are helpful

go for the colour nearest to your colour, not the colour you wanna be, it always looks better this way. xx

This winter was the longest AZ has ever had. And thus, began my quest for the perfect pair of black joggers.

Yes, I’m calling it a quest considering the fact that I ordered FIVE different pairs before finding the right ones!

But, I finally found them and they were so worth the wait.

Black joggers are so versatile, it’s essential to have a great pair you love! There are so many ways to wear black joggers that I consider them a wardrobe staple no matter where you live.

Need some ideas? Here’s how to style joggers, five different ways!

How to Know What to Wear

The Most Popular Way to Style Black Joggers: #Momstyle

Probably the most common way I style joggers is for weekending with cute sneaks, a hat and a tee!

I fell in love with these black joggers because they’re perfectly tapered (i.e. they don’t look sloppy) AND they’re high waisted! So you can easily top in a tee like my Paige top.

I just got these Adidas sneaksand they’re probably the most comfortable sneaker I’ve ever owned!

This rose version sells out a lot, but I found at pair at Nordstrom Rack and they’re on sale under $50 with just a few sizes left!

Dress Up Your Black Joggers

Black is so versatile! That’s why we all love that little black dress as a wardrobe staple. Likewise, even though these jogger pants are comfy AF, you can still dress them up.

Try a tucked-in cami like this one (on sale and in 20 color/print options!). A simple, classic heel elevates the look

How to Know What to Wear

Another Way to Pair Joggers with a Tee

If you’re not feeling the tucked-in tee, try tying a knot. It’s a simple style trick that makes the “pants and a tee” look not as basic.

To get the look, I like these BP tees since they’re a bit on the longer side it’s easier to create a knot. Plus, they’re cheap at $15, so you can’t go wrong!

How to Know What to Wear

How to Style Joggers with a Crop Top

Another reason I love these high-waist joggers? You can pair them with a crop top!

When they’re high-waisted like these, they only show a bit of skin and it’s a cute and casual look.

How to Know What to Wear

How to Style Joggers with a Blazer

I work from home so I’m all about outfits that can go from work-at-home-comfy to office chic. With black joggers, you totally can!

Style your joggers with a black bodysuit and top with a blazer.

How to Know What to Wear

For this look, I went with an orange blazer to add a bold color, but any color works for this black-on-black look.

And yes, you can totally style your joggers with heels!

Before settling on these black joggers, I tried some from Target, Amazon and another pair from Nordstrom Rack that didn’t work.

The key to finding a great pair of joggers is all in the fit; if you get that wrong they end up looking sloppy and dumpy

How to Find Cute Black Joggers

Unfortunately, my last pair of black joggers ripped so I had to find a new pair. These are more comfy at-home lounge-style, but if you can I recommend you also get a pair that’s closer to a trouser material. They’re incredibly versatile and great if you work in an office!

For now, since I’m at home, I needed some that would keep me cozy on a rainy day, comfy running errands and that I could easily dress up.

I hope this post has helped you figure out how to style joggers, there are so many ways to wear them!

Each mask should only be worn for one day and then either put in a washing machine at 60C or more – or thoroughly sterilised in boiling water.

It should cover both your nose and mouth but not your whole face for security reasons.

Above all, he says: “One of the things we’ve got to be reinforcing is, this is about our responsibility to keep shop staff safe.

“Through this outbreak, shopkeepers have done an amazing job, keeping food on our table, helping us to get the things we need.

“This is time when we pay back and we do our bit to keep them safe by us wearing a face covering so they don’t have to.”

How to wear a mask

As demonstrated in the above video, these are Dr Varney’s ten top tips for putting on and taking off a mask.

  • Wash your hands before you touch the mask
  • Use the straps, generally do not hold the centre of the mask.
  • Put one ear on and then the other ear on.
  • Stretch it out from above your nostrils to below your chin.
  • Make sure it covers your nose.
  • Make sure it covers your mouth.
  • If you’ve got glasses you will get a bit of steaming up. But you get used to it and it does ease off.
  • When you take it off, unhook it from round the back of one ear, then the other.
  • Fold it in half and pop it back in to your zip-lock bag, that way you stop the germs from spreading.
  • Then either wash your hands or use a hand sanitiser.

Dr Varney says: “We’re all being asked to wear masks to do our bit in stopping the spread of coronavirus and that’s about stopping our germs spreading out to the rest of the world.

“Fabric masks are not great at protecting you from the world, they are about protecting the world from you.”

There just eight exemptions where it will be possible not to wear a face mask in a shop.

What members of the public think

Only on Sunday. Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove said that mask wearing in shops was more about “basic good manners” than a need law.

Two days later on July 14, the government said they would be mandatory from Friday, July 24 – with only eight exemptions if rule flouters were to escape a potential £100 fine.

We found broad public support for the new rule, with the warning that shop sales might go down as a result.

Mum Meera Parmar from Kings Norton was already wearing a mask outdoors while friend Sandy Sandhu was heading to Boots to buy some.

Meera said: “I thought I just need to get into practice with one and that if it was going to be a requirement to not be doing it for the first time on the day.”

Carole Slater said: “I am wearing a mask not just for me – I think you’ve also got to think of others.

“If everyone does the same it can only help but I have a friend who just won’t go shopping if told to wear one.”

Judy Sherwin added: “We’ve only been in to Marks & Spencer to take things back that we bought online.

“I couldn’t wait to come back out of the store – even if they had been giving clothes away for free I would have not been interested.

“I’ve no longer got any interest in shopping for clothes, it’s just the way I feel.

“I think you should have to wear masks in shops but at the moment I’m very unsure about shopping anywhere at the moment.”

How to Know What to Wear

As protests and demonstrations continue around the country (and world) in response to the death of George Floyd, many have questions about what they should do to safely participate.

Some people are reporting being met with force as they protest. Many are concerned that the large numbers of people participating in protests might lead to an increase in COVID-19 cases.

The list below, gathered using expert guidance, outlines what to wear, what to know and what to do at a protest to stay safe.

What to wear to be safe at a protest

Amnesty International has compiled a thorough list of what to wear, bring, and know for a protest. A graphic showing the information has gone viral in the past week as more people attend demonstrations.

When getting ready to go, make sure you have essential supplies such as water, energy-boosting snacks and enough funds for any needs that might arise. Amnesty International also recommends bringing identification and emergency contact information, a watch, paper and a pen to document events, any prescription medication you may need and sanitary products like menstrual pads.

“Avoid using tampons,” says the organization. “If you’re arrested, you may not have a chance to change.”

The site advises against bringing things that can be easily grabbed or lost, such as jewelry, ties or loose hair. To avoid being strongly affected by tear gas and other chemicals, avoid wearing Vaseline, mineral oil or oil-based sunscreens and moisturizers on skin since they can trap chemicals. Contact lenses can also trap irritating chemicals underneath.

Amnesty International recommends wearing shatter-resistant swimming goggles and an N95 face mask, if available, to protect yourself. If an N95 face mask isn’t available, wear a bandana or other cloth mask to cover your mouth. Wear comfortable and protective, closed-toe shoes that you can easily move in, and wear clothes that protect all of your skin to protect from sun and pepper spray. If you can, bring fresh clothes in a plastic bag in case yours are contaminated by chemical agents.

How to slow the spread of COVID-19 while protesting

Peter Pitts, current president of the Center for Medicine in the Public Interest, spoke to TMRW about what to do to slow the spread of COVID-19 while protesting. There have been some concerns that protests may be “super-spreader” events and that the large groups demonstrating might lead to a spike in diagnosed coronavirus cases. While it helps that most of the protests have been taking place outside, Pitts said that the large number of people gathering in one area could lead to increased spread of the virus.
