The IG Lewks We Want To Copy As We Strut Into 2021

These aren't just looks, they're lewks.

Style

It's official. We made it to 2021 and we can't help but celebrate the dawn of a new day. Many of us opted for more casual get-ups during quarantine because it was ultimately more convenient. But we know that you supported Black-owned businesses on Black Friday and got some dope Christmas gifts, so now it's time to put those outfits into rotation. Stop saving your "nice" clothes for another day. The time is now.

Because last year taught us so much, we know that our lives won't go back to "normal" anytime soon but we are taking the time to give 2021 notice that we are determined to make it the best year no matter the circumstances. The fact that we made it to the new millennium is a flex alone. And like the go-getters we have always been, we are ready to create our new normal.

Leave it to Instagram to provide both levity and inspiration daily. Points are made, outfits are slayed and it's teaching us how to dominate the next decade. Here's to stylish women: may we know them, may we be them, may we raise them. Ahead, find feasible looks to copy and paste in the new year irregardless of your aesthetic.

KVJ

All black get-ups will always be a mood. The structured top and textured skirt would be a fire look for socially-distanced drinks. Throw on your favorite winter coat and you have an outfit that would make Toni Childs smile from ear to ear.

Abigail

We love a good loungewear moment, no matter the setting. It's been especially critical for our quarantine style with its convenience and comfort. Abigail's particular set offers a plush feel with a soothing pink tone. You could easily throw on some heels or sneakers to make it your own.

Zviko

If you haven't copped a shacket yet, you need to do better. The shacket has to be one of the most popular trends of 2020 and we have no doubt that it will be a mainstay until the temperatures rise. Zviko's styling is A1 — the color palette is ultra-modern yet perfectly simple.

Cassandra

This Parisian beauty used her vest as the foundation for a vintage lewk fit for fashion "IT" girls around the globe. The way she curated this number encourages us to get dressed up just to maintain our new normalcy.

Breukelen

Spotted: the perfect cozy fit. Orange is such a stunning color on melanin so don't be afraid to play with all the shades in various styles. Our Brooklyn bae made sure to layer up the most fly pieces to leave a lasting impression and we absolutely love to see it!

Enocha

Whoever said you can't pair black with brown lied. Not only did Miss Encoha come through with a bomb look but she also delivert a word about being gentle with our bodies, especially the mamas. There's also something about her accessories. The beanie, the crossbody bag, the rings… *chef's kiss*.

Tawana

Is it us or is this pic giving, "Nobody puts Baby in a corner...especially in these Prada boots"? Tawana's baby doll dress and chunky boots couldn't be a better match. She also did the entire look justice by throwing her flowing box braids into a stylish bun.

Jess

She's the ideal mix of humble and pressure. This corset fitted hoodie and joggers set is proof that you can elevate a jogger set with ease. Every girl deserves a set like this and every girl deserves to feel like a babe while rocking it. Jess definitely produced an unbeatable duo with the set and feathered heels. She shoots...she scores!

Kia

Our favorite Kickfluencer is the queen of stylish comfort. Take this look for example. The Hanifa cardigan is already its own movement but the graphic tee, camo pants and Adidas sneakers build up to a picture-perfect ensemble. Also, the N95 mask is giving safety and we are all about it.

The daily empowerment fix you need.

It was 2018 when I realized working in a toxic work environment and pursuing a high-stress career in Corporate America wasn't for me. But at the time, resources on how to take a career break were scarce. I researched, googled, and scrolled through Pinterest. I read blogs and listened to podcasts about other women who traveled and eventually made a career switch. But there wasn't a platform dedicated to strategizing an exit plan from the American lifestyle. At least, not for women of color. I was left to make these life-altering decisions on my own with little to no help or substantial resources.

When it comes to skincare, I have to say we are spoiled. We have a variety of products on the market that help us achieve that natural, youthful glow we all want. From gels, oils, serums, creams, foams, scrubs, and vitamins, we clearly can't go wrong. If you're obsessed with taking care of your skin or have been prone to skin problems like me, you've probably used retinol, hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and benzoyl peroxide as part of your skincare routine. These are just common key ingredients that have been on the market for decades. Now, there are so many other types of acids and supplements that give your skincare routine the upgrade you didn't know it needed.

Those who have experienced an HBCU homecoming understand the assignment. Students, alumni, and family of a Historically Black College and University gather to partake in the excitement of celebrating the heritage and culture of the school. It's a time of joy, honoring traditions, and for some, reflecting on the good ol' days. Homecoming weekends are spent eating well, laughing plenty, and enjoying the sights; and there is plenty to see! (Spoiler alert: Sleep is not on the syllabus.)

Summer is coming to an end, and it's officially time to start the fall activities. And with the start of a new season comes new movies and shows. One, in particular, is the final season of Netflix's Dear White People, airing September 22. A great thing about this show is that it sparks healthy conversation. Past seasons have explored topics like double consciousness, sexuality, and the Me Too Movement, but it's done it in a way that still allows the show to feel relatable and fun.
