Everything You Need To Know About Beyoncé’s New Activewear Line, Ivy Park

Okay ladies, now let’s get into formation. Because Beyoncé’s new activewear and athleisure brand, Ivy Park, is here. Now we love Queen B, but she’s been rather secretive in the build-up to Ivy Park’s release. So before everyone loses their minds, here’s the skinny on what promises to be one ***flawless sportswear collection. Bey collaborated with Sir Philip Green, chairman of the Arcadia Group (which owns the likes of Topshop, Topman, Miss Selfridge and Dorothy Perkins, amongst others) to create Ivy Park. And after a year and a half of waiting, it’s finally here. Now Bey is notorious for keeping her personal life, well, personal, so the promotional video is a rare illumination into Beyoncé’s life. Little Blue Ivy even makes an appearance, which is possibly the most adorable thing we’ve ever seen. “I’d wake up in the morning and my dad would come knocking on my door and tell me it’s time…

Dungarees: Can You Dig It?

Dungarees have made their fair share of comebacks over the decades. However you feel about this particular boomerang trend — its history is quite an interesting one. And we love a little back story behind our fashion favorites. Overalls date back to 1792, when they were originally used as protective clothing for farmers and laborers. As these were durable and inexpensive, overalls quickly became popular amongst workers. They were made out of cheap and tough material which unfortunately cemented their “low class” status. Click on the image and find a selection of dungarees. Get Piccing now.  However, this image changed slowly when women began wearing dungarees during the First World War. The durable fabric made a lot of sense for women to wear when filling men’s jobs while they were at war. After a brief hiatus, dungarees once again arrived when 90s grunge music hit the airwaves. Rebellious teens thought it “gnarly”…

Five Fashion Items From Clueless Still Trending Today

We’ve all been celebrating the 20 year anniversary of Clueless, the 90’s cult classic that has pretty much influenced clothing trends from the day of its release. The Beverly Hills teens might have been clueless about politics, relationships and how to drive, but when it comes to fashion they basically had their PhDs. Costume designer, Mona May (who also worked on Enchanted, Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion, The Wedding Singer and The Haunted Mansion) created looks that have resurged in contemporary fashion again and again. So we’ve picc’d our five favorite fashion items from Clueless that, with a modern twist, are still must-have items today. The Slip Dress Click on the image to get the look on Piccing.
