Everything This Stylish Over-50-Year-Old Is Buying in 2020

January has pretty much been the slowest month in existence, yet somehow, I am still very behind on all of my 2020 shopping. Since you read about my sartorial qualms and needs on a daily basis, I thought it would be nice to reach out to one of my icons and let you hear from her for a change. If you’re not familiar with 54-year-old It girl Grece Ghanem, then you haven’t lived. Her Instagram is flooded with all the inspiration one could need from office-appropriate looks to vacation-ready getups.

Today, she is here to tell us all about her shopping plans for 2020, and I can assure you, this list is better than all the rest. Naturally, some of the most coveted items like the new Bottega Veneta mules and updated suiting from The Frankie Shop made the list, but there are a few other surprises on here that will make both your and my closet 10 times more exciting this year. So sit back, relax, and get ready to hear Ghanem’s official list of must-haves for spring 2020

“If you know me, you know that I adore jumpsuits. They are comfortable, edgy, and the possibilities are endless. This black tuxedo jumpsuit from Bottega caught my eye because of its simplicity. It is elegant and chic with a hint of masculinity.” 

“White shirts are a wardrobe basic, and you always need one in a different style whether it is cropped, tailored, or oversize. This one from Zara makes for a fresh look for summer.”

“I would love a Bottega anything, starting with this mule. I love this piece because of the square toe, the color, and the fact that the heel is very comfortable. If I manage to get my hands on this beauty, I do not think I will take it off my feet!” 

“I have been on the lookout for an unconventional leather jacket, and this bicolor oversize leather piece by Gestuz just might be the ultimate one. It is multifunctional, as it can be styled as a dress. You can pair it with a cropped leather short, and it can then be styled as a suit! You can also never go wrong with a bicolor styling.” 

“I love a basic with a twist just like this Frankie Shop suit. The tailoring is rather traditional, but the cut is what makes it edgy. I love the cropped blazer and the ties around the ankle in the trousers. It reminds me of tying your shoes over your pants to cinch them.” 

“Another one of my Bottega favourites is the remake of one of their older popular designs. I love the new twist on the woven lambskin, which makes a black bag a little more special. It is also oversize, and the knot on the shoulder makes it more modern!”

14 Things Southern Girls Never Forget to Pack

As a Louisiana native, I’ve spent a lot of time in New Orleans over the years. While I’m no longer a resident of the Bayou State, the majority of my family is. I had my wedding in the Big Easy, too, so my trips to New Orleans have been more frequent in the past couple of years. I’ve realized that there are certain wardrobe essentials when visiting the city, so if you’re not sure what to pack for New Orleans, I’m here for you.

You’ve probably heard that heat and humidity are trademarks of the Crescent City, and while that’s not exactly the case year-round, the rumors are pretty much true. Spring, summer, and even early fall can be downright steamy in NOLA; rain showers are a frequent occurrence; and you’re probably going to spend a good deal of your time walking to places like Café du Monde, the Garden District, St. Louis Cathedral, Frenchmen Street, and Bourbon Street after dark.

The point is, you’re going to be walking outside a lot, and you’ll need appropriate attire that suits the festive yet chill vibe of the city. Keep scrolling to find out which 14 things I pack for every trip to New Orleans (so you can spend your time planning what to eat there, not what to wear).

I’ll go ahead and start with the obvious. You’re going to want to pack a few pairs of shorts.

Free up your hands to take Instagrams of the French Quarter and hold your to-go cup.

Thunderstorms often come out of nowhere in NOLA, so be prepared.

If the forecast calls for a jacket, a leather or denim one is usually the perfect weight.

The nightlife is a big part of New Orleans’s charm, so pack accordingly. I tend to rely on tops that will look cute with jeans and any shoe style.

Romantic dresses suit New Orleans to a T, and you can dress them down with sneakers or up with block-heel sandals.

It’s a city you’re going to want to do a lot of walking in.

I love my 100% cotton Levi’s elsewhere, but when heading to New Orleans, I stick to thin, stretchy denim.

I love wearing vintage-inspired shades in NOLA and highly recommend local sunglasses brand Krewe.

You’ll never look out of place when wearing a cool tee in New Orleans, so stock up.

Stay comfortable when exploring the city via a pair of trouser-legging hybrids.

I always pack a pair of fun block-heel shoes for when I want to kick things up a notch for a night on the town.

It may not be cold outside, but you can bet that every restaurant and shop will have the AC blasting.

Jumpsuits are easy to style and don’t take up a lot of room in your suitcase. Win-win.

The Type of Sweater That’s Least Likely to Pill

Sweater pilling: We all know it, we all hate it, and we’ve all heard various means of fixing it once it’s already occurred. In fact, we even shared an easy, 30-second way to de-pill your sweaters, which got us thinking: What about prevention? What kinds of sweaters don’t pill? Or do they all?

Naturally, in search of answers, we turned to our favorite place: the internet. What we found—in this Wall Street Journal investigation of sorts, as well as almost every online fashion forum under the sun—was that while the majority of sweaters will pill (no matter the quality or price), the least likely material to do so is merino wool. This is because merino wool “tends to be strong and when used in a tightly wound sweater would be less likely to pill,” according to WSJ. The good news here is that merino wool sweaters are not only easy to find but also available in a range of styles and price points.

Hailey Bieber Can Have Any Beauty Products in the World and Chooses These 10

Now we know why she has flawless skin.

Not only has Hailey Bieber really been slaying it in the fashion department lately (our camera roll has too many outfit shots to count right now), but her beauty game is perpetually on point as well. Personally, I’m a little bit of a Hailey Bieber fiend, if you will, and keeping tabs on everything she’s wearing, loving, and talking about has basically become my favorite pastime. My Who What Wear co-workers are very aware of my admiration, so when Bieber took to her IG stories recently to share 10 of her favorite beauty products, our editor in chief, Kat Collings, quickly rang the alarm and sent the must-save screenshots to me.  If you love Hailey’s aesthetic just as much as I do or are interested in seeing which products she swears by for keeping up her perpetual glow, keep scrolling. Below, I’m sharing the must-see beauty snapshots from her Instagram and the products you can buy to channel your inner Hailey goddess. 

Sadly, Bieber’s favorite cleanser (formulated by Christie Kidd, PA-C) isn’t available to the public yet. However, if you want to copy her routine to the T, you can sign up to receive updates and a notification when her products eventually become shoppable to the masses. In the meantime, we recommend the below cleanser from Reflekt—a magical, multitasking cleanser that Hollywood is absolutely buzzing about right now. 

Sorry, same goes for these mystery pads! We’re not entirely sure what the ingredients are in this favorite product, but as far as pads go, M-61’s beloved peel pads are expert- and beauty editor–approved for a major radiance boost. If you want Bieber’s signature sun-kissed tan, buy this gradual tan version.

Honestly, is there any celebrity with perfect skin who doesn’t hoard this cult-loved C and E serum from SkinCeuticals? 

We’re still deep in winter, so we appreciate the fact that Bieber credits this popular hyaluronic acid serum from SkinMedica as a savior for chapped skin. 

According to Bieber, she counts on this top seller from Drunk Elephant to wash the day away—even super-stubborn makeup and sunscreen. 

Another Drunk Elephant fave? This brand-new ultra-hydrating formula. It’s cooling, plumping, and formulated to play nicely with all skin types. 

For pore-cleaning and detoxifying purposes, however, the model reaches for this top seller from Dr. Barbara Sturm. (FYI: Models hoard every single skincare product from the brand.) 

Again, Bieber knows her way around the cult-classic skincare products applauded and used by basically everyone with perfect skin in the industry. Augustinus Bader’s Rich Cream still reigns supreme in terms of gold-standard skincare. I mean, the formula basically slows and reverses the aging process. What’s not to want?

Bieber admits she’s only human and not always great about consistently applying her daily dose of SPF. (Eek, same.) That said, she cites this top-rated formula from EltaMD as the one she loves most since it doesn’t clog her pores or break her out like so many other formulas out there. 

I so identify with Bieber. I have acne-prone skin, so the prospect of active, botanical-based oils and serums can be nerve-racking. (The wrong formulas can irritate the skin and majorly clog pores!) However, according to Bieber, this beloved serum-oil hybrid wonder from Vintner’s Daughter is in the clear and does her complexion good.

New PENSOLE x Asics Collab Drops At Foot Locker Tomorrow









Dropping tomorrow, check out this latest PENSOLE x Asics collab set to drop exclusively at Foot Locker. Resulting from Foot Locker’s most recent “Fueling the Future of Footwear” 2018 Master Class, two ASICS silhouettes – the Asics Gel Kayano Trainer OG and the Gel DS Trainer will be part of this new collab.

The PENSOLE x Asics Gel Kayano Trainer OG ($130) colorway was inspired by the Japanese Daruma doll. The Daruma doll is a traditional doll that symbolizes many things depending on the color of the doll; most commonly found in a red, gold and black color. These dolls are symbols of good luck and perseverance. Daruma dolls also embody goal-setting, so this shoe was made to symbolize ambition, growth and accomplishment.

The PENSOLE x Asics Gel DS Trainer OG ($120) comes with graphics inspired by traditional Japanese and modern American art. If you look closely at the print on the heel and sole of the shoe, you’ll see a mix between the two styles of art, illustrating the idea of “East meets West.” Fulfillment through self-expression is a key theme within this shoe. Utilizing art and creativity to defy convention and break down the barriers of what is considered traditional art through a non-traditional means.

Look for both pairs from the PENSOLE x Asics collection to drop on Saturday, January 25th in-store and online at Foot Locker.
