Cara Delevingne and Ashley Benson have reportedly split up after two years of dating. “Cara and Ashley always had their ups and down before, but it’s over now,” a source told People magazine in May 2020. “Their relationship just ran its course.”

Charlotte’s retailers can reopen Friday evening. But will they?

After almost two months of quarantine, on Tuesday Gov. Roy Cooper confirmed plans to begin reopening North Carolina on Friday evening. To ensure safe practices, social distancing will remain common, and there will be requirements for reduced capacity.

“COVID-19 is still a serious threat to our state, and Phase 1 is designed to be a limited easing of restrictions that can boost parts of our economy while keeping important safety rules in place,” Cooper said. “This is a careful and deliberate first step, guided by the data, and North Carolinians still must use caution while the virus is circulating.”

What Can We Learn From Writers & Artists, The Original WFH Style Set?

Our daily attire has shifted somewhat since lockdown began in March.

Of course, we haven’t taken off our humble Birkenstock sandals — the poster child of lockdown footwear — but our sartorial approach has mutated once more; on week six of lockdown, the clock has melted off the wall and with it, any sense of self. 

In an effort to establish some structure in our lives, we’re searching for

Forties-inspired fashions to celebrate the 75th anniversary in style

This Friday will mark 75 years since VE Day, but with parades and public festivities off the cards due to the coronavirus outbreak, people across the UK are looking for other ways to pay tribute to the Second World War generation.

The current sense of community spirit, as demonstrated each week during Thursday evening’s Clap For Our Carers, has proved that us Brits are nothing but persistent when it comes to sharing a feeling of national pride. All, of course, while following social distancing guidelines.

From decorating your house with flags and bunting to joining in with Dame Vera Lynn’s nationwide singalong, there promises to still be plenty of ways to celebrate. But, for fashion fans especially, dressing to impress is the key to paying homage to life in wartime Britain.

The Second World War might seem like an unlikely time to have a fashion moment, but
