10 Summer Staples That Can Transition Into Fall

The only thing worse than watching Summer come to an end is figuring out what to wear during the temperamental weather between seasons. During this time, no one wants to part with their effortlessly easy-to-style summer staples. As school creeps around the corner, it can be stressful to shop for new clothes that won't make you sweat in the September sun, but will still keep you warm on a cooler day. Instead of breaking the bank on new sweaters that can't be worn until October, dig through your closet to discover some pieces you already have.

1. The Cropped White T-Shirt

A cropped white tee is one of the most versatile pieces in any wardrobe. This shirt can be worn with just about anything, from jeans to joggers. One of my favorite ways to transition this piece into fall is to combine it with the 'utilitarian pant' trend or with any looser-fitting denim.

2. Bodysuits

Bodysuits are perfect layering pieces because of their lightweight fabric. They offer a superior fit when paired with high-waisted jeans, compared to tucking in a shirt. Long sleeve bodysuits offer even more style versatility that will outlast the warmer days of early Autumn.

3. The Button-Down White Shirt

There are endless ways to wear button-downs that put a unique twist on a basic outfit. For hotter days, wear as a tied crop top with jeans or a skirt. As the weather gets colder, button it all the way down and wear it under a sweater.

4. The Denim Jacket

It's officially time to start wearing your denim jacket again! Enjoy this short season while it lasts before wind breakers and coats take over for what will seem like an eternity. Not only are denim jackets kind to your hair (no friction = no flyaways!), they make any outfit look like you put effort in. Pair with a basic white t-shirt and leggings for class, or try a denim-on-denim look.

5. The Miniskirt

Mini skirts are a great 'night out' option for this time of year. They can be worn with flats or pumps in the warm weather but can also last the duration of the cold with higher cut boots and knee-socks.

6. Paper Bag Pants

These stylish pants that were previously worn with crop tops and tanks can now be re-purposed with a slim-fitting sweater. Keep the comfort of the Summer in these loose-fitting pants as you wear them all throughout the Fall.

7. Distressed Denim

Enjoy wearing any piece of clothing that exposes skin before freezing temperatures make it impossible. Distressed jeans in any wash offer an effortlessly stylish vibe that pairs well with almost any t-shirt or sweater.

8. Sneakers

When you're in-between seasons, picking out shoes to wear can be more difficult than it needs to be. Since it's too early for boots, put on a pair of white platform sneakers to match any outfit.

9. Sunglasses

Don't ditch your sunglasses yet! To make an outfit look more vintage, try a pair with cat-eye lenses that are making a comeback.

10. Layered Necklaces

Layered necklaces are a great purchase that will make a dull outfit look instantly glam. This jewelry trend works well with both lower and higher cut necklines.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

If you log into any social media app, you will be overwhelmed with self-appointed experts, preaching the correct way to end this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic from the comfort of their La-Z-Boy chair. Aside from those dramatic children on TikTok, it's all anyone can talk about. There's an obvious reason for this — the pandemic has taken our world and flopped it on its head, bringing confusion, angst, and an obnoxious amount of sourdough bread into our lives.

All this to say, it's easy to get lost amidst the storm of arguments online. Instead, it's best to break down what's actually going on so we can have an educated perspective as we look to work together to move past our current predicament.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Ah, yes. The juice cleanse. Yet another popular diet trend that promises to magically solve all of your health, nutrition, and weight issues.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.

HBO

Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.
