Diesel Jeans: This Was the Year We All Became Fashion Freaks

I had a quaint little memory the other day—a naive fashion reverie, if you will. Just before the pandemic, we were all taking bets in the GQ office on who would dare to wear a skirt first. God, were we ever so young? At this point, even though I’m still mostly seeing my coworkers on Zoom, I can see that everyone is going WILD with their wardrobes—skirts, dresses, crop tops, see-through smocks.

I went to the movies yesterday. Actually, before I start today’s essay, allow me a moment to bask in the glow of being able to say that last sentence. In terms of movies, I am what marketers might refer to as a “heavy user.” Ever since I was a child old enough to understand the difference

This Is Already the Coolest Nail Trend of 2021

Between the excitement of nail salons reopening and the promise of summer to come (hopefully), there has been a noticeable shift in the types of manicures that I’ve spotted on Instagram lately. Gone are the neutral colours and basic shades that all the chicest women were stepping out in earlier this year and in their place, a riot of cute nail art and pastel hues. As someone that always has a saved folder that’s bursting with nail designs, I have to say that I’m thrilled with this shift to embrace colour and pattern for the season ahead. That
