In recent years, the ever popular “sock bun” has made its way onto the crowns of the savviest fashionistas. It is the perfect up-do for on-the-go mornings, second day hair, hot summer days, and dressing up any outfit. And because not every woman was built the same, we’ve decided to compile the best variety of sock bun tutorials here. Sock buns for women with thinner hair, shorter hair—you name it. These are our favorite Youtube how-tos.
1. The Basic Bun
This is the basic sock bun principle. If you have longer, thicker hair with less layers going on, this is how you want to approach the do. Timeless look in less than five minutes. Beat that.
2. For Those Rocking Shorter Cuts
I love bobs, but they get to be a hassle in the summer time when you want to get that last inch off your neck. They’re also problematic when that dress calls for an up-do and you’re running out of pins and places to hide them. Enter: Sock bun. Now this tutorial is actually three in one, but we only recommend the first tactic she teaches. The last two get to be too complicated and sort of defeat the purpose of a fast hairstyle.
3. Cascading Layers? No Problem
Layers are always (mostly) a good idea. They add volume, visual interest, … fly aways? That’s only true if you’re trying to pick up your hair, and in this case we are. Check out this Youtube contributor’s trick for tucking those rebel strands away.
4. For the Finer Heads of Hair
Some of us were not born with perfectly thick locks. We have to find ways around this, like how to hide a hair-part when getting our hair up into a pony tail or how to make that ponytail lift proudly. In this case, how to get the ponytail all the way around the sock without the donut showing in the end product. Brittany makes that look easy.
We’re not going to pretend there’s not something totally over-the-top batsh*t about these kooky designer sunglasses, but for some reason…we can’t get enough of them.
If you’re an XL bride like me, you’re probably frequently dismayed by the lack of designer names in the plus size department (and often, the way snotty sales girls handle your dress requests).
Last year our favorite feline, Hello Kitty, collaborated with the sneakers brand, Vans, on a line of limited-edition shoes. The Hello Kitty x Vans collaboration must have done well because it’s back for a second round. And this time the collection has a lot more than just pretty shoes for our rear paws.
Last month, Topshop fans and budget brides were delighted to learn that the fast-fashion store would be putting out its first bridal collectionwith designer Richard Nicoll.
Even in the rain, a fashionista must look stylish. In fact, it’s an excuse to rock the cutest rain gear out there and we have you covered. But when it’s hot and muggy, the last thing you want to do is don a big rubber rain boot – don’t get me wrong, we LOVE our Hunters – but in this weather? No thanks. What’s a girl to do? Meet the jelly flats.
It seems like the last time I wore patchwork jeans was in middle school, but the denim trend has been sneaking its way back since Paris Fashion Week last year (thanks, Isabel Marant, Céline, and Chloé!). Now, other labels have caught onto the hodgepodge design, which can easily be stylishly-suitable for the breezy wardrobe choices for this spring and summer.
Moms-to-be, we have some exciting news! Rosie Pope’s new capsule collection for A Pea in the Pod arrives in stores this June!
You probably know Rosie from her hit Bravo reality show, Pregnant in Heels, but Rosie is also a maternity designer.
