If Dieting Makes You Feel Anxious

We cut calories, carbs, sugar, grains, processed food, and cross our fingers when we hop on the scale, hoping to see the number drop. And when we don’t, we blame ourselves, which only forces us to diet longer or harder. I know women who’ve been dieting for over 20 years! But dieting can lead to terrible emotional and physical stress, which can then put our well-being at risk. Here are the ways that dieting stress can rob you of your health.

“I’ll be happier if I can just lose weight.” Does this thought sound familiar? Diet culture tells us that we have to look a certain way to be deemed as beautiful or worthy, and it drives many women (and men too!) to diet. We try all kinds of diets – many extreme and unhealthy – all in pursuit of this “perfect” image that the media has drilled into our heads.

I Keep Wearing My Tie-Dye Socks at Home Because They Bring Me Joy

While some people have been dressing up while working from home at this time, I’ve found myself reaching for the same cozy sweatpants instead. I don’t really feel like I’ve been in the right mindset to put on a flowy dress or wear a cute top with jeans for a put-together look. (Luckily, I don’t have to dress up for work meetings since they are super casual.) Lately, it’s the little things that have been bringing me joy. Case in point? I’ve been wearing my tie-dye socks when I need a little pick-me-up during the workweek.

I have a pair of colorful tie-dye socks from Mother that has “Don’t” written on one sock and “Trip” written on the other. Just like my favorite hoodie, slipping into these retro socks brings a smile to my face. Perhaps it’s the nostalgic tie-dye print that has a calming effect over me, but as soon I put them on I feel a little bit better. It might also be the fact that I’m no longer styling my outfit with different shoes right now and these colorful socks feel like a fun way to complete an outfit rather than plain white ones.

I’ve actually noticed others like Leandra Medine and celebrity stylist Erin Walsh styling their loungewear at home with these colorful ’90s-inspired socks, too. Keep reading to see how to wear tie-dye socks and shop a couple of pieces if you’re feeling inspired ahead.

Kim Kardashian’s isolation wardrobe proves she looks just as good in loungewear as full glam

She gave us reality TV, contouring, strobing and North West… but you’d be mistaken for thinking Kim Kardashian is solely renown for her razor-sharp cheekbones and talented offspring. Indeed, the 39-year-old has also become something of a sartorial icon.

Love her or loathe her, there’s no denying that Kim has spearheaded some pretty major trends (and no, we’re not talking about that latex dress or Met Gala ensemble circa 2013).

Rather, Kim is responsible for coining a plethora of trends. From cycling shorts to blindingly-bright neon via snakeskin boots, Kim has a habit of pulling off looks the general population wouldn’t contemplate wearing with aplomb.

Kim has also been praised for diversifying body image on the fashion scene and is never afraid to trial the trickiest trends and weather any criticism that may come her way. Hey, she’s covered Vogue enough times to warrant her status as a fashion icon.

So, we’ve been wondering how she’s been styling out isolation. Is she tottering around her Calabasas mansion in a latex bodycon and Bottega Venetas? Not quite.

We had a little dig through her archives to source some of her best casual at-home looks and were pleasantly surprised. When Kim isn’t clad in Riccardo Tisci’s handiwork, she favours a super pared-back approach to dressing; think comfy joggers, tonal dressing and, of course, Yeezy trainers.

Here, we document Kim Kardashian’s best loungewear looks to give you all the inspo you may need for styling out your next Zoom call. And if you’re feeling super nostalgic and yearning for the days when we could leave the house, here are Kim’s most extra looks of all time.
