The ‘landkini’ is the spring trend you’ll see all over Instagram, and it’s actually pretty cute
No, it’s not just an everyday bikini
by Una Dabiero
So far, we've seen lots of scary trends in 2018. There's colored mascara. And spandex. There's even animal appliques. But I am here to tell you that the "landkini" isn't as scary as it sounds. I'm not making you walk around in cotton thongs under sheer dresses or wear triangle bras with sarongs as your next nice dinner look.

The landkini is an elevated jumpsuit, romper, or dress
Of various silhouettes, I might add.
Back home in Nashville after the BEST long weekend in the Florida sunshine.☀️This yellow gingham set was ideal for wandering around the vibrant streets of West Palm Beach yesterday. Head to my latest blog post (link in bio) for outfit details – I’m wearing @lulus head to toe! 🙌 #lovelulus #ad #hunterpremo #premostyle | 📷 @cameronpremo
That instantly makes you look hotter by showing a lil strip of skin
Didn't middle school teach you anything?! The more skin, the better.
Some people call them "two-piece sets." But those people are boring. And also, there are two-piece sets of EVERYTHING! Underwear, actual bathing suits, pizza, etc. We are talking about a specific LEWK here. Not a generic clothing type label.
The boho style basically makes looking like the beach trendy

The best thing about the trend, IMO.
This jumpsuit set from Tobi is easy clubbing material:
And this set is fancy enough to transition from frozen drinks by the water to a nice dinner:
Excuse me while I spend, like, a million dollars on this trend. A little bit of belly is in, bitches!

This brand’s attempt to be woke backfired with a horrific, fat-shaming sweatshirt
I’m sorry, WHAT?
by Nian Hu
These days, most brands are trying to be more inclusive and body positive. From Dove's Real Beauty Campaign to Aerie's #AerieREAL campaign, companies everywhere are scrambling to appeal to women who aren't a size zero.And while we can (and should!) criticize these brands for only pandering to the body positive movement in a shallow attempt…
Are those Happy Bunny t-shirts from middle school the reason we’re all like this?
‘Boys are stupid, throw rocks at them’
by Amanda Ross
Here's a fun fact for you, babe readers: all through my early teenage years, my mom had some very strict rules for my school wardrobe. The edicts included only one (1) black shirt per week, prohibition of safety pins as accessories, and nothing with Kurt Cobain on it. I wanted to be an alterna-punkbitch, but…
