Summer sneakers found.
No longer reserved for just workouts, sneakers have become a core part of our everyday wardrobes, as the comfortable and utilitarian shoes they are. Nothing gives your slip dress look a smart-casual twist like a crisp white pair. They can even look polished when paired with a two-piece suit featuring wide-leg trousers.
A slip dress is truly a failsafe choice for a museum date, a fancy dinner date, a coffee-shop meet, or an off-duty moment. It only takes a chic pair of mules and a gold necklace to elevate it to formal-occasion status or some chunky sneakers and a leather jacket to dress it down. As an easy-to-wear, extremely versatile pick, it's the wardrobe investment that will work hard for you.

Growing up, you may have experienced the noise—and perhaps slight fear that it would come crashing down—of a loudly creaking ceiling fan when visiting your great aunt's house. Thankfully, there are now seemingly endless options of modern ceiling fans available with features like LED lights and remote-controlled motors, and designs ranging from vacation vibe rattan to modern chrome finishes. "When choosing a ceiling fan, pick a model that blends in with the interiors and doesn't draw attention to itself," advises Cameron Watt, owner of hospitality group Acre, who utilizes ceiling fans in his Los Cabos Treehouse Hotel.

Last week, four-time Grand Slam singles winner Naomi Osaka took home yet another title, at the 2021 Laureus World Sports Awards where she was named Sportswoman of the Year. Though unable to attend the award ceremony IRL, the 23-year-old tennis star still used the occasion as an opportunity to get dressed up. In fact, while accepting the award virtually from her training base in Los Angeles, Osaka slipped into something very formal: a wedding dress. Keeping with the tradition of tennis whites, Osaka wore a sequin-covered gown with a plunging neckline and flowy, quarter-length sleeves. And before you assume that her dress is totally out of your budget and/or designed by a major fashion house — Osaka is a spokesperson for Louis Vuitton, after all — get this: it’s from none other than British fashion brand ASOS’ bridal collection. View this post on Instagram A post shared by 大坂なおみ (@naomiosaka) But that’s not even the best part. Osaka’s dress, called the Ciara Sequin Kimono-Sleeve Wedding Dress, is still available in sizes 2 to 14 and costs $339, which, as anyone who’s purchased (or tried to purchase) a wedding dress will tell you, is quite affordable. Shop Osaka’s ASOS dress, as well as a few can’t-miss styles from the brand’s bridal collection, below. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff.
