10 Perfect Outfits French Girls Are Prioritizing

Whether or not you’ve actually visited the French capital, you’re likely familiar with the Parisian aesthetic. Marked by messy bangs, a classic red lip, and an effortless wrap dress, the “French-girl” look is a well-known style trope with roots in the early 1950s.

Popularized by the likes of Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin, French style has since been reimagined by modern-day It girls like Sabina Socol and Jeanne Damas. While classic jeans, a white tee, and a basket bag are still prevalent, the look now includes slip skirts, blazers, corduroy trousers, cable-knit cardigans, and more. Of course, the French approach to beauty and style is more pertinent than the clothes themselves. The look is low-maintenance, slightly carefree, and just “undone” enough.

Group Chats Were Always Important. During The Pandemic, They Became Essential.

It was December 2020, and Martha Midkiff was sick and nervous. She was so nervous, it was making her sick. No — she was sick and it was making her nervous. She had a cough. A bit of a fever. Given the ongoing pandemic, her first concern was that she’d contracted COVID-19. She was worried about the potential health repercussions for herself — but also, about receiving judgment from her group chat. Early last autumn, Midkiff, 25, and four other friends formed a “COVID pod.” It was nice to be able to see the other members in person without stressing too much about her safety, but integral to the pod was the group chat they used to make plans, send memes, and offer up emotional support on tough days.

Conspirituality Is On The Rise In The UK’s Yoga Community

When Stewart Robertson, a 58-year-old statistician from Milton Keynes, received a Facebook message from his female yoga teacher* linking to an anti-vaxx propaganda video, he was shocked but perhaps not totally surprised. About 18 months before, she’d sent him a Facebook message containing 5G conspiracy theories. “I’d alway thought of yoga as something idealistic, all about ‘flower power’ and closer to the ‘left’,” he tells me. “But these kinds of posts, they’re coming from the alt-right.” While Stewart and his classmates largely brushed off the 5G email, over the past three months their teacher’s pushing of conspiracies – which she’ll post on social media or send directly to her students’ work emails – has escalated. It prompted Stewart and his classmates to confront her in an email over “content [that] really needs to be challenged”. Because of
