Best In-Ear Headphones: i.am+ BUTTONS

The first time you put your BUTTONS headphones into your ears something magical happens. A futuristic tone sounds and a very posh British woman’s voice says, “Your buttons are connected.”

For me, wearing headphones at the office is a necessity. With the chaotic nature of a busy fashion magazine, it’s easy to be distracted by everything going on around you. A good playlist and a great set of headphones thankfully can keep me focused on next month’s story.

BUY: i.am+ BUTTONS, $200; amazon.com

The BUTTONS not only deliver on sound quality but also on aesthetics. Not surprising since they are a product of rapper Will.i.am’s tech company, i.am+. Models Kendall Jenner and Naomi Campbell, who star in the ad campaign, serve as co-owners of the company.

With a variety of colors (black, white, pink) and metals (gold, rose gold, space gray) these headphones fit in perfectly with your existing tech aesthetic. They are sleek and modern enough to wear at the office on a morning commute without looking like you’re off to the gym. When you need to take them off, the magnetic discs easily stick together and hang around your neck like a necklace—a brilliant feature.

Securing the right ear fit is essential to the sound quality for any pair of earbuds, so the BUTTONS include earpieces in various sizes that mold to any ear shape. The sound quality is impressive for their small size—they made everything from Madonna to Mozart sound full and rich, while drowning out the world around you. The ease of Bluetooth pairing to multiple devices also adds to their appeal.

There are a lot of options in the headphones market and while these are on the upper end of the price range, they are a worthwhile investment. Great looking, great sounding—and Will.i.am, Naomi, and Kendall approved. The BUTTONS check all my boxes.

Wins for: Aesthetics, Sound Quality, and Ease of Use

Noteworthy Features:

  • Magnetic backing allows them to hang around your neck
  • Customizable earpieces
  • Easy pairing with any Bluetoot

Alicia Vikander Stars in Louis Vuitton’s 2017 Cruise Campaign

Louis Vuitton’s latest Cruise campaign will give you all the travel inspo you need. Starring Alicia Vikander, the campaign was shot in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil by famed photographer Patrick Demarchelier, and features strong pops of color and the classic designs the fashion house is known for.

The Oscar winner shows off two of the new handbags in the collection—the emblematic Twist and Capucine. In one snap, Vikander gives a sultry gaze to the camera, as she walks amongst palm trees in a black-and-white top and a belted navy-and-black skirt. An embroidered black handbag is on her arm, complete with red and white stitching and the signature silver LV twistable emblem.

In another photo, the 28-year-old actress walks along the shore as the wind blows her brunette locks and exposes her dangling black-and-white Louis Vuitton earrings. She wears a white crop top and high-waisted white shorts, and makes a statement with the bold, color-blocked Twist bag on her arm, which also has the silver LV twistable emblem.

The campaign follows the brand’s epic 2017 Cruise presentation, which took place in the Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum.

7 Snacks Fashion Girls Eat (and the Clutches to Carry Them In)

Yes, fashion girls eat. And no, it’s not just lettuce or carrots. Or, I don’t know, some vegetable-fruit-hybrid juice (isn’t drinking a meal a form of eating?). But during New York Fashion Week—or any of the weeks that make up Fashion Month—we can’t even do that, because there’s just no time for food when there are fashion shows to attend, celebrities to greet (slash, casually ignore), and street-style photographers to pretend to hurry past.

But in all seriousness, when you’re on your eighth show of the day and it’s only 2 p.m., the only thing that will save you from fading is a snack—a chic one, of course. And most importantly, one that you can conveniently stow in your teeny-tiny clutch and sneak a bite between shows.

You’re probably wondering: What are chic snacks? Well, keep reading to find out, along with the clutches to house them.
