Get Springtime Fresh With These Trending Looks From Macy’s

It's time to spring into some new fresh, fabulous finds.

Style

This post is in partnership with Macy's.

I cancelled winter this year and lived the dream of perpetual spring in the humid, subtropical climate that is Clearwater Beach, Florida. I also lived, perpetually, in the same set of fair-weather attire, completely exhausting my wardrobe. So, I'm doing a hard reset and springing (see what I did there?) for a whole new situation!

Whether you're like me, or just looking to acquire a few, fresh pieces, now is the perfect time to take stock of what you have, assess what you need, and even completely reinvent your style.

Fashion today no longer tells you who to be, it helps you become more of who you already are. That's why Macy's expertly curates the fashions that inspire and reflect your unique brand of style.

Top fashion influencers, Amanda Korina and Amina Marie will take us through the Top Spring 2020 Trends, and help you completely revamp or simply breathe new life into your wardrobe!

Garden State of Mind 

Florals. Pastels. Feminine silhouettes. It's a whole vibe this season at Macy's, and Los Angeles influencer Amina Marie caught it with her super posh puffed-sleeve illusion top, paired with on-trend ankle-length jeans and a coral bag. In her video, fashion blogger Amanda Korina, is pretty in pink, rocking a satin blush blazer and matching shorts paired with twist style hoops and strappy sandals, bringing a fresh and polished perspective to a classic look.

Femme Utility 

This spring, we're collectively trading in our trusty, but played-out athleisure essentials, for elevated and on-trend utilitarian staples, like the denim dress Amina Marie paired with Adidas Superstar sneakers and pearl hoop earrings. If you're feeling #prettytough, you can stunt like Amanda Korina in her new utility DKNY Drawstring-Waist Cuffed-Hem Jumpsuit paired with nude strappy sandals, gold earrings and stackable rings.

Neutral Ground

Chic enough for the city and cool enough for the desert, tonal dressing is moving beige into bold new territory. In addition to neutral jumpsuits and dresses (like Amina's snake print shirt dress), and matching tan tops with white bottoms and neutral shoes, bags and jewelry are trending, too! Check out Macy's neutral ground accessories to pair with all your utility and garden party looks!

What 14 People Say 'Great Sex' Means To Them

What is the difference between bad, average, and great sex? If I ask thirty people this question, I would get thirty different answers. As someone who's had their fair share of both good and not-so-good sex, I understand that there is no one size fits all answer to this question. "Great sex" can mean different things to different people. Case in point, I once had an amazing sexual experience with a guy that a mutual “friend” had a horrible experience with. Great sex is subjective AF! According to the mutual friend his sex was subpar at best. One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Great sex boils down to what is good for you and your partner at the moment. No two people are the same so no two sexual experiences will be the same either.

Halle Bailey On The Revolutionary Act Of Wearing Her Locs As Ariel

When the trailer for The Little Mermaid dropped, everyone finally got to see Halle Bailey as Ariel. Black women and girls raved over the singer/ actress’s beauty as the beloved character while she belted out the Disney classic song “Part of Your World.” And one of the most noticeable things that many fans pointed out was that the character’s red hair was made of locs.

5 Times Megan Thee Stallion & Pardison Fontaine Showed Their Love On The 'Gram

Another day, another photo of Megan Thee Stallion that went viral. But this time she had a little help from her boyfriend Pardison “Pardi” Fontaine. The “Pressurelicious” artist’s fans were in for a surprise a few days ago after Megan posted a photo of herself lying on the floor with her legs up and wrapped around Pardi’s waist. Pardi appeared to be focused on playing his video game while Meg’s derriere was tooted in the air but he managed to wrap his arms around it as he held the controller.

The Mamie 'Till' Movie Wants To Empower Us

Sitting in the theater getting ready to watch Nopefor the third time, I was excited, like a good film nerd, to see my friend's first-time reactions to the fun UFO horror-comedy. My heart sank immediately when a trailer for the film Till, which follows the life and legacy of Emmett Till's mother, Mamie, started playing first.

My knee-jerk reaction, of course, comes from years of watching film and TV that have exploited Black trauma onscreen and were created with little (if any) consideration for what could emotionally trigger the Black audience. The 1955 murder of Emmett Till is so heartbreaking and inherently violent; would this film make us live through that violence on screen?

Fortunately, no!

This week, before watching Gina Prince-Bythewood's incredible The Woman King, a featurette for Till played in place of a trailer and it soothed my fears.

"There will be no physical violence against Black people on screen," the film's award-winning director and co-writer Chinonye Chukwu says in the featurette. "I'm not interested in relishing in that kind of physical trauma. We're going to begin and end in a place of joy," she says.

Starring Danielle Deadwyler (whose heartfelt performance on HBO's Station Eleven stole the show) as Mamie, Till is a celebration of Mamie's tireless activism which sparked the civil rights movement that continues today and ultimately culminated in President Biden signing the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act into law just a few months ago in March 2022. "Mamie Till Mobley is a hero," says Alana Mayo, president of Orion Pictures, the production company behind the film. "I'm really, really committed to making movies not just by us, but for us," Mayo says in the featurette.

After a private screening of Till, this week, Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, tweeted that the film was "#Powerful" and "a must see."

Mamie's story of courage in the face of unspeakable tragedy deserves to be told--especially as we continue the fight for civil rights today. Knowing that the Black filmmakers behind the film are centering Black joy and aiming for our empowerment through the film makes a world of difference.

TILLis in theaters October 14.
