COVER UPS

High-fashion face nasks

Cellphone, keys, wallet, and my new must: my mask. I never thought THAT would make my checklist for leaving the house, but here we are. I found some beautiful ones and am ditching the powder blue and snow white styles. These are fun, funky, and would definitely make an impression that the CDC would blush at.

I fell in love with Victor de Souza's fuchsia coverup with detachable bow, and for more than a basic fabric covering, GRLFRND's mesh covering is like jewelry for your face.

RELAXOLOGY

Designer floral slippers

Raise your hand if you missed wearing high heels. I didn't. For the first time in my life, I happily embraced new words in COVID isolation like "comfy", "cushy", and "casual". My new obsession: fancy slippers. Birdies wovens became the must haves for answering the door for deliveries and walking the dog. They're shoes with slippers inside! These floral ones—The Phoebe—are $120 and perfect indoor/ outdoor with added cushions in the soles.

PAW-CHELLA

In 2019, tie dye was a huge trend on the runways from Prada and R13 (above), and it continues to this day. The TikTok and YouTube generation sees it as an individual expression as no two looks are the same. And in these heartwrenchingly sad times, the yearning for peace and hope is on everyone's minds. This old hippie loves onesies and T-shirts on my personal billboard: my dog! Moe Greene will be sporting an adorbs leash and collar Martingale set by Country Brook Design. This style is designed to keep dogs from slipping out.

MAGIC MARKERS

Collection of colorful eyeliners

I needed this Sephora Collection eyeliner stick for my eyes which kept me glamorous for Zoom meetings and lasted all day. There are 37 different colors to choose from and are easy to apply and easy to smudge. I will now order a crate.

CHAIR ESSENTIALS

Staying at home for three months straight, I realized I needed a great chair for my official WFH status. Who thinks about things like this? EVERYONE. So there is a waitlist for this incredible chair—Layman High Back Ergonomic Mesh Executive Chair. It's great for the back, it tilts, and it rolls. And the colors... CHIC!

When it came time for Art Director Richard Jensen to decorate the pool and patio areas for Season 1 of Love Island, CBS' sizzling summer matchmaking show, he followed one guiding principle: "Would cool, young, sexy people be excited to hang out here?"

The answer, of course, was a resounding yes. Jensen pulled from such designers as Jonathan Adler and textile artist James Dunlop to create a Fiji-based set that was as stunning as the single Islanders themselves.

By day the outdoor space is light, bright and playful.

To get the look at home, Jensen suggests mixing different shapes or materials to give your space a designer feel. "And don't forget the outdoors can be used day and night, so lighting is important," he says. "Fairy lights on a large tree or shrub and a fire pit instantly add glamour."

The ladies—and let's not forget the men!—of The CW's music-infused dramedy Katy Keene have served up some envy-inspiring ensembles. These New York legends-to-be aren't afraid to express themselves through fashion, giving us all the looks we can't wait to try out.

Time To Shine

Riverdale's favorite former Pussycat doesn't shy away from the spotlight, and neither do her outfits. Josie McCoy's (Ashleigh Murray) glistening gold romper is the perfect choice for a singer who wants to stand out.

Flirty And Fun

As an aspiring fashion designer, Katy Keene (Lucy Hale) knows a thing or two about mixing patterns—and we admire her ability to do it without hesitation. Plus, that heart-patterned jacket—hearts are one of Katy's signature sartorial motifs—is to die for.

Keep It Casual

Even when Katy dresses down in a simple tee and jeans, she makes a statement. (Clearly she got the memo on initials and monograms trending everywhere from clothing to jewelry.) We're taking notes on how to keep this casual style fresh!

Pull Out The Turtlenecks

A houndstooth blazer and basic black turtleneck—the sleekest look by far: When you're a famous fashion designer like Guy LaMontagne (Luke Cook), you stick to the classics.

The Eccentric

Socialite Pepper Smith (Julia Chan) constantly takes her style to the next level in fun—and totally out there!—looks. This It girl is going to set the fashion world on fire.

Sparkle Plenty

When these three get together, only amazing—and super-sparkly—things happen. A night out isn't complete without a heavy dose of shimmer and sequins, whether it's Josie's glittery grass skirt–style peplum top or Pepper's striped sequined shirt (paired with, of course, army-green overalls).

A Fashion Icon

Speaking of sparkle… who says glitter is just for the ladies? Jorge Lopez (Jonny Beauchamp) has a knack for catching your attention, and it shows. We're not mad that he can rock a sequined bomber jacket better than we can!

Josie And This Combo

Josie doesn't fail to bring her animal (fashion) instincts to New York with her. Now an up-and-coming solo artist, Josie loves to add a pop of something bold—like a leopard print—to her outfits to give her that extra oomph in the recording studio.

Stage Presence

Jorge's alter-ego Ginger knows how to captivate an audience. From slinky bodysuits to vibrant frocks—like this flirty NYC taxi-inspired number—the talented drag queen oozes star quality and style.

All Pink Everything

Katy's monochrome look—in one of her go-to hues, pink—is everything we need right now. It's clean, cheery, and the perfect pick-me-up.
