This season high fashion is going low (literally) as we see the resurgence of low-rise pants. Just in time for an effortlessly chic summer, the ultra-hip style has been favored by several notable brands, including Rosie Assoulin, Tibi, and Derek Lam. Often compared to famed designer Elsa Schiaparelli, Rosie Assoulin has a penchant for stepping out on a limb, and this season was no exception. Straying from the gowns that she’s known for, Assoulin focused on casual wear, which included a variety of low-rise trousers. Slouchy twill pants that had boxers sewn in, drawstring versions, and several belted styles were among the pieces that filled the designer’s spring collection. At Tibi, the low-rise style was applied to everything, from shorts to pantsuits, and fit in perfectly as the collection was filled with long and loose silhouettes, mainly made of silk and cotton. The low-rise trend also made an appearance at Derek Lam’s spring show. Putting a modernized twist on his signature sailor pants, the designer included several low-rise styles in his collection, which fit in perfectly with the classic sportswear brand.

Both fashionable and comfortable, this is one trend everyone should try. This style is extremely easy to pull off. The trick is to selecting the right top. The top is important because it needs to be short enough to keep the waistline exposed or long enough to be tucked in. Opting for the “tuck in” option? Accessorize with a low-slung belt. Sporting a crop top? Keep the belt at your natural waistline.

There’s been a lot of buzz about Beyoncé’s latest album Lemonade. Through its artistic journey, prosthesis
we experience heartache and triumph, only showing that life will prevail despite whatever comes our way. Again, Queen Bey has managed to show her amazing marketing techniques using only social media to advertise her projects. And not only has our love for the music continued, but we also discovered a newfound fascination with lemons. Seriously. We’re all about this lemon-life.

For those who are absolutely into wellness and natural products, we can definitely turn any household lemons into a beauty cabinet of life. If you’re looking for a great face mask, mix a tablespoon of lemon juice and a teaspoon of organic honey with one egg. The lemon will naturally brighten your complexion and remove excess oil, as the egg and honey will smooth your skin. Let sit for about 15-20 minutes and refrigerate any of the mix that is left for your next at-home facial.

To create a lemon-based body scrub, pour a cup of granulated sugar into a cute jar. Add a cup of coconut oil and squeeze in the lemon. The sugar is the perfect natural exfoliant, coconut is great for the skin, and the lemon will refresh your body as it does with the face mask. For a thicker scrub, simply add more sugar.

To moisturize nails and soften cuticles, mix a little olive oil with lemon juice. Soak your nails as you would at the salon to strengthen them. Still feeling zesty? By all means, make a cold pitcher of lemonade as you bask in the results of your natural beauty routine.
