Going back to school has been a hot topic in a pandemic world, with parents, students and teachers concerned about whether it’s safe to do in-person learning while COVID-19 continues to spread in communities. Now a new study attempts to shed light on how spring’s school closures affected COVID-19 outcomes. The study, which was published in JAMA, analyzed state data from March to May 2020, specifically looking at the rates of COVID-19 in each state per 100,000 people after schools closed. The data was separated into quartiles, and researchers used models to estimate the differences in COVID-19 cases and deaths in areas where schools closed compared with where they stayed open.

While there was a time when the slip dress was considered strictly bedroom — a hidden inner layer normally associated with curlers and fuzzy slippers — the lingerie-inspired frock has shed its pajama moniker to become a bona fide stand-alone dress. The slinky, Victoria's Secret catalog-bound number of the '90s has evolved past adult sleepover jammies. In fact, it's even evolved beyond the Céline and Saint Laurent chemises that kickstarted the trend a few years back. Nowadays, the dress is being reimagined into velvet dinner party frocks (yep, at-home ones too), happy hour attire, and house dresses. It's a four-season buy because you can wear it solo in the summertime, then layered it with a white tee as it got cooler and eventually a giant chunky sweater on top when it's freezing. For 15 slip dresses that say cozy day sleeping on a picnic blanket, rather than mood-lit bedroom, click ahead. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff.

The month starts on an expansive note. We're encouraged to open our minds on August 3, when the Moon waxes full in forward-thinking Aquarius and creates a square against change-loving Uranus at 11:58 a.m. EST. This is a day to absorb what is happening around us and focus on flexibility. Chatty Mercury speeds into the proud sign of Leo on August 4, altering how we share our thoughts. We’ll enjoy a new sense of confidence while the messenger planet moves through this sign, but we’ll have to be prepared to put a little extra effort into listening. Charming Venus makes her way into sensitive Cancer on August 7, helping us be gentler with our loved ones. We may notice that we’re more doting toward our partners, or that we’re feeling more open to new relationships. August 15 offers us an opportunity to manage our energy, as change-loving Uranus stations retrograde in reliable Taurus. We're feeling a little jittery as this planet moves in reverse, and find it more challenging to tether our ideas. It’ll take more intention to center our thoughts, but if we make the effort it’ll pay off when Uranus stations direct in Taurus. Ready to get organized? The Sun enters Virgo's practical sign on August 22, helping us figure out where loose ends can be tied up. We can use this transit to figure out how we can become more efficient and save time for what matters.Like what you see?

The week could kick off with a little whiplash. On Sunday, the Sun forms a square against enigmatic Uranus, setting the stage for sudden changes that may feel a little overwhelming. We’ll get through it by taking the time to understand our evolution and allowing ourselves to be fluid during this transit. The Moon waxes full in intelligent Aquarius on Monday at 11:58 a.m. EST, creating a square with unpredictable Uranus. It’ll be a challenge to keep a cool head during this powerful transit, but we’ll be able to use the excitement to reflect upon our growth. Exercise empathy, as others may be experiencing intense changes. We should be prepared to forgive ourselves on Monday, while messenger Mercury opposes taskmaster Saturn. It's easy to focus on our mistakes and shortcomings as these planets clash — take a deep breath and look at the bigger picture. It could be tempting to act impulsively on Tuesday, when warrior Mars creates a square against abundant Jupiter. Make sure that the juice is worth the squeeze, and take extra time to make decisions during this transit. Chatty Mercury makes his way into Leo's charismatic sign on Tuesday, helping to elevate our thoughts and words. For anyone who’s wanted to amp up their public speaking skills or try their hand at acting, this is an excellent opportunity to get in front of an audience or a camera. We're feeling more in tune with our emotions starting Friday, as charming Venus enters the sensitive sign of Cancer. The planet of love and beauty encourages us to protect ourselves and express our most honest feelings to those closest to us.Like what you see?
