Celebrating women is at the core of what we do at InStyle. For us, style is about how you live your best life—however you define it. And during the past month, it’s been inspiration at every turn. The office has been abuzz as we’ve pulled together the special 25-page flip section to mark the return of Big Little Lies. Yes, the five returning cast—Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley and Zoë Kravitz—are all serious A-listers, but as you’ll discover in their interviews, they’re all embracing life head-on and are powerful advocates for change, especially when it comes to equality. Their energy as they talk about shifting the role of women, empowering each other and our future is infectious. Closer to home, we celebrated 10 pioneers also being the best…

STRANGER JEANS The third season of Stranger Things premieres on July 4, and to celebrate, Levi’s has turned its staple denim upside down by stamping it with kooky graphics of the cast. Fandom just got the fashion treatment. HOLD FAST With its clean lines and classic shape, Fendi’s iconic Peekaboo bag transcends trends, making it the ultimate friend in fashion—and life. Case in point: Italian influencer Chiara Ferragni celebrated her 32nd birthday with the timeless carryall in tow, and the sweet surprise party was caught on film for the latest episode of the label’s Me And My Peekaboo campaign. INVEST NOW GRAPHIC IMPACT Far from traditional, this season’s houndstooth-print pieces offer an eyecatching alternative to solid shades. Make your mark Once dipped in wax and stamped on important documents like a signature, today’s standout signet rings can be…

NEW AGAIN Complete reinvention is overrated, especially when Fendi’s playfully printed square-toe heels and Oroton’s elevated canvas tote make such a stellar case for refreshing the elements we already know. FLYING THE FLAG With Bastille Day on the approach, what better time to work a little French-inspired fashion into your wardrobe? A chic take on the varsity sweatshirt telegraphs that effortless je ne sais quoi. GOOD ANGLES The newest slant on fashion staples? Sneakers swiped with concave stripes, plus oversized frames that sit right between square and cat-eye shapes. Celine’s updated take on the classics ensures you will never blend in again. SHARK TANK Jaws was a bold creative endeavour for its time, as is Calvin Klein’s cotton tank top, which juxtaposes the cult film’s artwork against the label’s logo to take a mighty bite out of…

ELLE FANNING IN GUCCI At 21 years old, Fanning is the youngest juror in the history of the Cannes Film Festival. But before claiming that title, the actor had taken out the crown for her superior style ability. Gowns that throw back to the golden age of glamour are the star’s red-carpet catalyst of choice, skipping Gen-Z-favoured flashes of skin for equally attention-grabbing refinement, drama and flair. The custom caped silk dress she wore to Cannes’ opening ceremony sums up her sartorial spirit: distinct in its vintage appeal, striking in its silhouette and, thanks to its waistaccentuating floral embroidery, dazzling enough to command all eyes on one of the world’s most inimitable fashion stages. SHEEN QUEENS Satin separates needn’t be saved for between the sheets. These stars have successfully roused pyjama-style sets from…

bright lights, big city

Step inside Shanghai’s West Bund Art Center, and feast your eyes on the dizzying scene Coach 1941 set for its pre-fall 2019 runway show. From flashing traffic lights to vintage cars and a makeshift two-lane street, the cityscape spectacle the New York label created to celebrate 15 years since it launched in China also marked its first ready-to-wear debut staged away from home—though a slice of the Big Apple was definitely felt here. DESTINATION GLAM Aside from the bustling Manhattan street scene, the clothes on the runway were distinct in their glam-rock attitude. Patchwork platform shoes and a mash-up of metallic leather met Coach’s classic sweaters and oversized outerwear. Think Alice Cooper circa 1970, reworked for the new-gen crowd, plenty of whom sat front row, surely cherrypicking their next go-to look. From…

IN TRANSIT STYLE TIP Disembarking in a new climate? Lightweight layers are key to looking chic either side of your journey. From a bold carry-on, to knitted boots, invest in printed extras to take it up a notch without compromising on comfort. RAINY-DAY DATE STYLE TIP High shine and cast in plum, a statement coat ensures you’ll be noticed no matter the weather. A bright bolt of cobalt will also work wonders when the sky is grey, just don’t skimp on waterproof footwear—no-one likes wet toes! POST-WORKOUT LUNCH STYLE TIP The best workouts lead straight into lunch, so your outfit should, too. Throw a long-line anorak over tights for extra coverage, or go the opposite route and opt for a cropped jacket that lends fashion credit to tracksuit pants. LAST-MINUTE MEETING STYLE TIP Whether you tuck a…
