Holiday Outfit Inspiration

by Michaela Piontková


Now that Christmas and New Year are just a distant memory, many are prepared to go into survival mode until summer. 


But, for us, it’s never too early to start thinking about your next holiday, so why not think about what you’ll wear?

Clean slates


White maxi dresses have been trending for the past three summers and 2024 won’t be any different!


This year we shifted from ethereal, puffy designs to more revealing, sleek silhouettes. We see a lot of floral motives, like in the Valentino SS24 collection which was full of skin-revealing sculptural mini- dresses. 


Michael Kors presented the floral trend using lace, while Stella McCartney opted for mesh.


These two materials together with organza are the main ones to replace the cotton we loved in previous years. This year more than ever we are trying to look elegant, yet fun and sexy in the most tasteful way.


Crochet


Crocheting is without a doubt one of Gen Z’s favorite hobbies and this summer it is also to be the chicest fabrication technique. 


Let’s be real, when on holiday, the clothes we are looking for the most are simple throw-ons to wear over a swimsuit and crocheting is here to save us. Be it a top, a dress, or a set, crochet pieces offer the ultimate comfort while looking put together. 


Vibrant colours


Despite the colour of the year being the Peach Fuzz, trend forecasters are predicting vibrant colours to take the lead this summer. Tones of red, orange, and pink dominate the season as well as blue (especially metallics). 


If you dare, you can take inspiration from Matty Bovan and combine all of them.


However, there is no need to go extreme; a simple accessory or one bold colour combined with neutrals is enough to make you this summer’s most stylish fashionista.


Swimwear


We can’t talk about summer vacation without swimwear. It is clear that 2024 is all about womanhood, wellness, and feeling sexy in our skin. 


Turana Atash

For many, this can be wearing the newest Skims micro thongs, while others might prefer a more covered option. Woman-owned brand Turana Atash introduces swim and resort wear, that takes western style swimwear and develops it with the contemporary Middle Eastern World view in mind. 


They believe that fashion and modesty can be synonymous with each other and are trying to convey the message with their collection of Half-covered and Modest swimwear.


Timeless basics


Polo shirts, high-waist trousers, oversized blazers, and flowy dresses are essentially all you need to pack when going on vacation this summer. Last year’s quiet luxury trend taught us the importance of owning good quality timeless basics. 


Summer has always been the season when everything is more colourful, and playful. Consumers experiment with their style more which leads them to buy clothes that don’t quite fit their aesthetics. This summer we see a shit towards more elegant, simple pieces that are

wearable all year long.

Fashion For a Cause: Brands That Stand with Palestine and the history of fashion as a form of Activism

by Oana-Maria Moldovan For over two months, there has been an ongoing genocide war in Gaza. To simplify a long and horrific issue, the situation that started, on a larger scale, around one hundred years ago, and has only become amplified since October 7th 2023. Taking place around the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and Israel–Lebanon border, the armed conflict is between Israel and Hamas-led Palestinian militant groups.  The problem is about “stolen” land. Said land is seen as an important holy part of both religions involved. But really, how holy can we consider a land to be, if people kill other people for it? It’s important to remember that this genocide is about three things: forced occupation, zionism, and religion. It’s also important to remember what ethnic erasure is. This terrible expresion, also known as cultural or ethnic assimilation, refers to the process by which the distinct cultural or ethnic identity of a particular group is gradually diminished or erased, often due to ext

Now What? The Aftermath of the 'Manic Pixie Dream Girl'

by Susan Moore Here is a bit about me: I am an open, excitable, creative AFAB who is also moderately attractive. I have a unique sense of personal style and a personality that on the surface can only be described as “bubbly” and “quirky”. For this reason, dating is a nightmare. To be sure, I do not have a hard time finding dates or potential suitors. The problems arise when said dates spend some time with me and decide that I am a rare specimen, and the connection they feel with me is “unlike anything they have felt before”. Then, things go one of two ways.  Either a) they decide I am too high maintenance and no longer palatable, or  b) they choose to never look further than the surface and are content to date the idea of me rather than the real me. There is something rather interesting, perhaps funny, about my situation. It is in no way unique. I have met so many people who constantly dealt with the same problem. Even funnier still, is the fact that there is a trope that simultaneousl
