introducing #bonnetcore

In fashion, what is old is eventually new again and no new trend is more evident of this than fashion’s latest It item: the bonnet. Yes, the headdress favored by babies, Little Bo Peep, and flying nuns is being worn by the Internet’s weird, fashion-forward elite and dominating Instagram feeds thanks to the hashtag #bonnetcore.

Coined by Brooklyn digital artist Molly Soda, the headgear is following a similar pattern to normcore (in-your-face generic) and health goth (monochrome sportswear-meets-fetishism): two fashion trends born online but whose influence is now majorly seen offline on the streets and runways.

First worn by Soda and her friends, bonnets have now begun making their way into fashion editorials. Lily-Rose Depp, daughter of Johnny Depp and the new face of Chanel, wears a modified version of the hat in Oyster Magazine—her first fashion shoot. Diesel creative director Nicola Formichetti has also adopted the trend early and photographed one for his Nicopanda label.

The verdict isn’t out on whether #bonnectcore will catch on, but weirder trends have happened. Don't be too surprised if you see some version of the look walk down the runways this coming Fashion Month. Anything goes in fashion, after all. Get that bonnet life.

He announced the news today

On Monday, Bernie Sanders announced that he is running for president again, after he lost the primary in 2016 to Hillary Clinton. And although he was very popular during the 2016 election, his announcement is drawing mixed reactions online.

Many of his previous supporters, including celebrities like Mark Ruffalo, were excited about him joining the 2020 race, voicing their support of his announcement.

But others seem to want him to disappear, even pretending not to know who he is. And these reactions have turned out, in some cases, to be hilarious.

The lack of excitement for his announcement may be because of the recent allegations of sexual assault which apparently occurred within his 2016 campaign, and which he claims he didn't know about. It could also be due to his base, who supported him even after he lost the primary to the detriment of Clinton's campaign.

Some are also calling out the fact that Clinton has been effectively shunned following her loss, while Sanders seems to be being welcomed back with open arms.

The pieces will take your athleisure look to the next level

American Apparel just dropped its first activewear line since the brand's relaunch last year, and I can already tell that these looks are going to make up my entire summer wardrobe.

The new line, called FORWARD, offers a variety of styles in lightweight fabrics like flyweight satin, which is an imitation of boxing gear; lame tricot; and cotton Spandex. All of the fabrics feature a four-way stretch, making the clothes "suitable for training but also designed for life outside the gym."

With the collection, American Apparel also launched an inclusive campaign called How We Play, which shows a diverse range of models, including blind Paralympic runner David Brown and curvy yoga instructor Luisa Fonseca.

The collection's styles offer a wide range of looks which will fit with just about any aesthetic, whether you're going hard at the gym or looking for a casual off-day outfit. Personally, I'm excited about the iridescent looks and the rainbow patterned bra and bottoms, which I will definitely be rocking at Pride this year.

The entire line is also super-affordable, capping out at $48, with most products priced in the $20-to-$30 range. You can shop FORWARD collection online, now.
