We like to think of the Nordstrom pre-sale as an invitation to start our fall wardrobes early, but with some deep discounts attached. No one’s retiring the bikinis just yet, but there’s definitely a lot to look forward to in this list. Here we found ones worth buying.
Feeling mid-summer wardrobe fatigue? Us too. We decided to see if we could find these Gigi-esque looks for less. A lot less. Cheap is all in the tag.
Get this Kreist label cotton candy-colored jacket look-a-like from Forever 21 for $19.
Gigi walks the walk in Stuart Weitzman booties, do it your way in Zara heels for $69.
Gigi looks sunny in a Sally LaPointe suit, mimic the look in a crop top from Forever 21.
Gigi kicks back in Christian Dada, you can too in J. Crew PJ’s for $45.
Want for gorgeous skin and all-day energy? We asked Bobbi Brown to share her secrets from her latest book Beauty from the Inside Out. Our copy is dog-eared and stained with beauty-boosting smoothie ingredients—and the best part we our skin is looking good and we feel even better (if we do say so ourselves). Check out the list and get ready to leave your makeup kit at home.
We love happy skin. That’s why we’re obsessed with Vitabrid Vitamin C12 FACE Brightening Powder, the latest K-beauty product to calm and light up your skin. Francesca, our Content Director, swears by it. “It worked instantly, even after SPF-slathered beach days.” Now you and two friends can win it! No purchase necessary. Just sign up for Hintd and use the referral link in your profile to invite two friends and when they sign up, you’ll all be entered to win kits. Then check out our citrus themed list. Think of it as your summer style spritzer.
It’s not officially summer until you kick it off with a pool party. Need some inspo before you dive in? We’ve got you. We rounded up all the essentials—from pool floats to sun hats to shades—to help you get started. Just grab your swimsuit, and you’ll be set.
Sun’s out and your skin is probably feeling a little parched. Refresh it with moisturizing beauty products designed to hydrate and deliver a natural glow in one easy application. Get ready to dive in!
We asked Kurt Slanaker, who practically makes it his job to know everyone and everywhere to go (his real gig is Director of Membership at Spring Place), to curate an insider’s guide to downtown.
He walked us through his ideal summer day date (with the option to extend into evening), and it begins with a mouth-watering brunch at Tiny’s NYC.
He also suggests picking up some wheels from Tokyo Bike NYC and taking a joyride through Manhattan. If you’re not in the market for new bikes, CitiBike is an easy substitute!
He likes the idea of winding up at the Guggenheim for an early afternoon weaving through the museum, and afterward to conveniently take a break for a picnic in Central Park complete with some summer rosé and charcuterie.
After a leisurely meal under the shade of trees and some easy conversation, he invites us to create your own evening adventure: either go for a movie with a view at the Rooftop Cinema Club or make your way back downtown to Brooklyn and end the day with a nightcap from Metta, perhaps the Day Eleven, a citrusy mezcal cocktail.
Check out the list for more ideas of places to go, plus style to suit a summer date adventure.
