Because one look at some of the most stylish women out there revealed as much.

It Seems the Visible Thong Trend Is Hanging Out for a Minute

As far as controversial trends go, we’ve seen some wild ones—from the ultra-low-rise jeans of the early 2000s to the heeled flip-flops of last year. But one of the most controversial trends of all time is apparently back and just as polarizing as ever. Rising to fame in the early 2000s and then making an under-the-radar comeback in the last few years, the trend you never thought you’d see again is here: the visible thong.

Last week, an ad depicting a postpartum mother was banned from airing during the Oscars. It was created by Frida Mom, a company offering products to new moms, with the aim of demystifying postpartum recovery. ABC and the Academy Awards, however, ruled the ad “too graphic” for network TV.

In it, we see a woman (Laura Gilreath) waking up in the middle of the night to her child’s cries. She’s in pain, wincing and struggling to sit up. She slowly makes her way to the bathroom wearing the mesh underwear that hospitals give to new moms. Once on the toilet she contends with a large pad and a squeeze bottle of warm water, two vital supplies during the postpartum period. Throughout the ordeal, her baby continues to cry.

After the ad was banned, it went viral on YouTu...

The Complicated Relationship Between Shapewear & Body Positivity

Today, more than a decade later, the world has changed, but many of those problems are still around. Although the body positivity movement has made significant progress in the effort to love ourselves and our bodies better, even the most confident people struggle with what they see in the mirror. Since its inception, shapewear has been marketed as a quick fix for those moments of frazzled frustration, i.e. “This just doesn’t fit right!” or “How can I look…smoother?” And that strategy has paid off — big time.

The Chicest Over-50 Women Told Me the Fashion Mistakes They’ll Never Repeat

Regardless of what year you came into this world, we can all learn a thing or two about style from our wiser fashion counterparts. These are the women who have lived to see generations worth of trends come and go and have spent the better half of a lifetime honing in on what they can now claim as a strong sense of personal style. Since this group of women offers a wealth of knowledge, I was curious to know what kind of style lessons they can teach the rest of us.

I spoke with a handful of the many chic older women I’ve taken to following on Instagram for style inspiration. Grece Ghanem is a 54-year-old from Montréal with a penchant for print-mixing and “old Céline.” Lyn Slater, otherwise known as Accidental Icon, is a 65-year-old from New York whose career took off when she started blog...
