Taylor Swift showed support for equality for Pride month



In the past years, the singer has avoided voicing out her political opinions, much to the disappointment of some fans. That’s why her recent activities come as a welcome surprise to all. In honour of Pride month this June, the singer takes to Instagram to share her advocacy. Taylor Swift showed support for equality by posting a letter to a Tennessee Senator and her followers to urge them to fight for the Equality Act. Aside from that, the singer wore a rainbow-coloured ensemble at her 2019 iHeartRadio Wango Tango performance. Whether she’ll speak about other issues soon, only time will tell.

Hosted by the singer's mum, Tina Knowles-Lawson, the annual event had “A Journey to the Pride Lands” as its theme to celebrate the upcoming film.

Lush has always been there to depend on if we’re in search of eco-friendly beauty products. As if that wasn’t enough, the brand decided to extend its range and produce make-up brushes. This new collection will be vegan and 100 per cent cruelty-free, made up of recyclable and biodegradable materials. These makeup brushes, however, stray from the colourful and glittery theme their products always seem to have. All are plain black-and-gold, but they’re surely looking luxurious and soft to touch.

For many years, the work attire of women was patterned from men's clothing. From those jumpsuits worn by female factory workers during the 1940s to the oversized power suits of the '80s, it had always been about resembling menswear. In a way, this fashion move does make sense as women back then needed to prove that they can do whatever their male colleague does — including wearing the pants. But today, the workplace is a different landscape from what it was over 70 years ago. Women are now embracing their feminine identity no matter their position on the corporate ladder, showing everyone that being powerful and wearing womanly styles can go hand-in-hand. That said, here are the new rules of power dressing.


Give your heels a rest

High-heeled footwear has been an essential element of the traditional 'girl boss look' ever since this type of style was conceptualised. But with all the good selections of flats and sneakers that we have now, it's time we veer away from this typical notion. Explore other designs like mules, ballet flats and even chunky sneakers. You'll be surprised how great they match with other acceptable modern and creative officewear ensembles.


Mix textures

The next rule is to experiment with textures! Whether it's silk, lace or leather, adding a unique piece will elevate your look and make it more interesting rather than if you'll just go with the usual all-cotton or polyester ensemble. The only exception to this rule is to skip the overly flamboyant ones like sparkly skirts or fully sequined tops because these would make you look unprofessional. 


Veer away from streamlined silhouettes

We all love to sport a sleek, streamlined silhouette especially because this style makes you appear sharp. But you have to admit that it can be a little boring to always wear only one kind of form. To refresh your look, try flowy clothing for a change. Look for ones that still embody a sense of elegance like long cardigans and skirts with plaid designs.


Wear weekend outfits to work

First things first, not all weekend outfits are appropriate for the workplace. Choose those with a sophisticated look like a silk jumpsuit or sundress paired with a nice blazer or cardigan. Following this rule will surely expand your workwear wardrobe without spending a penny!



Go for bright prints

The minimalistic monochrome style had its day in the sun. Now is the time for bolder, brighter prints! Start by rocking familiar prints like stripes or gingham in striking colours. Once you're comfortable, you can explore more daring patterns such as leopard.  Make sure to keep everything else on the neutral side so your outfit can stand out.
