This Is Officially the New “Everyday” Jewelry Look of 2021

Call me a pessimist, but I truly never thought the day would come when delicate gold layering jewelry would meet its match. For years now, simple stacking rings, tamely layered tiny gold chains, and average-size hoops have been the go-to jewelry assortment of fashion girls everywhere. Even the recent(ish) introduction of heavier chains felt like a daunting departure from the minimalistic look we were all so accustomed to, so you better believe we were floored once colorful, chunky, loud, statement-making pieces emerged as the new everyday jewelry trend in 2021.

Shaq Went Jewelry Shopping And Casually Paid For A Stranger’s Engagement Ring

Most people’s engagement stories are romantic or at least worth retelling, but not many engagement ring purchase stories are … unless they involve Shaquille O’Neal.

31 White Wedding Looks to Consider From the Fall 2021 Runways

It’s been over a year since most of us have been to a wedding—at least the kind we attended in the Before Times, with crowded dance floors, over-the-top flower arrangements, and hundreds of guests. The ceremonies that did take place in 2020 were mostly on Zoom or outdoors with immediate family, a stark pivot from the destination weddings and weekend-long festivities many couples had planned. Frustrating as it was to postpone (and then postpone again), the silver lining of a pandemic wedding is that there are no rules to follow, no expectations to uphold. Anything goes! Most weddings were refreshingly

This past week, Dua Lipa had plenty of reasons to be elated. It’s been 12 months since the pop star released Future Nostalgia, which received a Grammy Award for Best Pop Album. To celebrate, her team surprised her with a cake of the album cover, while Lipa wore a barely-buttoned “sexy cardi” and a chunky cardigan. The accessory here? Balloons, of course.

Another musician basking in her glow was Lizzo. She wore a casual look seemingly around a home—sports bra and swishy pants—and added a Balenciaga stamped windbreaker jacket for that designer finish. Tracee Ellis Ross has been catching
