11 Quarantine Outfits Inspired By Latino Sayings That’ll Make You Laugh

Picking outfits to go to work or school wasn’t that easy but choosing what to wear during quarantine isolation comes with its own set of challenges. I want to lounge in comfy pjs but I know I’ll have to walk my dog five times a day, so I really can’t unless I’m okay with looking like a crazy person. Then, there’s the uncertainty of not knowing if my boss will want to video call me at any given moment. 

Luckily, mitúShop launched a collection dedicated to quarantine woes that features comfy attire with a side of cheeky commentary. Perfect for yourself and sweet enough to purchase as part of your care package for a loved one. 

Aguas Con El Virus Unisex Tee

¡Aguas! There’s a virus going around and this tee serves as a friendly reminder in case anyone has been living under a rock. 

If You Can Read This, Aléjate Unisex Sweatshirt

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends we stand at least six feet apart from each other but I say if you can read this, you’re too close.

Mejor Sola Que Contamiada Hoodie

Mamá says “mejor sola que mal acompañada” but we say “mejor sola que contaminada,” so tell bae to hold off and you can pick up where you left off pre-quarantine.

Nothing is sexier these days than following the CDC guidelines of self-isolation. Bae can wait.

Sana Sana Tee

While Vicks might not be able to cure this pandemic, it always gives us a warm nostalgic feeling. This tee is a subtle reminder that things will get better. 

This Is My Quaran-tee Unisex Tee

If you’re like me and you don’t want to mix your regular clothes with what you’re wearing during quarantine, consider this your new official quarantine uniform tee. It’s extra soft and no one will question your wardrobe choice during video calls — even if you decide to wear this every day. 

Stay Home Unisex Tee

Wear this when you’re walking your dog and you’ll basically be doing community service at the same time as you remind everyone else THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO STAY HOME.

Quarantine Has Turned Me Into A Señora Tee

I thought Saturday mornings living at home were bad… until I had to face quarantine. I have never done so much cleaning in all my life. This shirt states I’m officially a clean queen.

Maluma Teams Up With Luxury Brand Balmain For This Must-Have Fashion Collection

Maluma Teams Up With Luxury Brand Balmain For This Must-Have Fashion Collection

It’s 2021 and we have no shortage of epic collaborations between some of the world’s biggest Latino stars and top fashion brands. Everyone from J Balvin and Bad Bunny to Cardi B and now Maluma have entered the fashion industry to sell a lifestyle. And people are buying!

Maluma and French fashion house Balmain bring us a limited-edition collaboration.

Colombian superstar Maluma has partnered with French fashion house Balmain to launch a limited edition collection that will be available from April 12 through June 1 in all Balmain stores, including brick and mortar and online.

The collection, which includes sneakers, blazers, t-shirts, pants and other ready-to-wear clothing, will also be available at Saks Fifth Avenue as of April 15.

The Balmain + Maluma line marks the first time ever the brand has designed a line with a celebrity. And it seems like the brand’s creative designer is pretty excited about the collab. Through photos on his Instagram, Olivier Rousteing referred to the reggaetón singer as his inspiration, captioned with supportive laudatory messages about merging their cultures and joint design process.

“Maluma, more than him being an incredible singer,” Rousteing notes, “[brings] a lot to the fashion community with his joy and his happiness and the fact that he’s always playing up his style from different kinds of houses from around the world, mixing different cultures as well… I think the collaboration with Maluma is obviously giving to Balmain and pushing the aesthetic more internationally.”

Maluma also seems to be pumped for the opportunity!

Although Balmain has featured other celebrities in advertising campaigns and runway shows, it has never actually enlisted a celebrity to help design a full, name-branded line.

The brand’s high profile, along with the haute-couture retail price of the collection, underscores how entrenched Maluma is now in the global fashion world and how valuable his endorsement and name is perceived by high fashion.

“It’s been one of my goals to work with a respected fashion house on a collection, but this journey was more exciting, as Olivier pushed me to design with him and sketch looks that I personally will wear off the stage and showcase high couture with a bit of Papi Juancho,” says Maluma, referencing both his album name and alter ego.

But if you want a piece of the collection be prepared to drop those coins.

Items in the Balmain + Maluma collection range from a black cotton T-shirt that retails for $495, to $1,500 high top sneakers to a $2,555 multi-color print bomber jacket.

Met Gala 2021 Is Happening And Amanda Gorman Is Set To Host The America-Themed Fashion Event

Met Gala 2021 Is Happening And Amanda Gorman Is Set To Host The America-Themed Fashion Event

It’s 2021 and the Met Gala is back this year – after being canceled in 2020 thanks to a pandemic – with superstar poet Amanda Gorman being eyed to host the fashion event of the year. Given the 23-year-old’s show-stopping performance at the inauguration, the theme fittingly will be a celebration of America and American designers.

The Met Gala will return in 2021 with a very special guest as host.

Vogue’s “Oscars of Fashion” famously takes place on the first Monday of May. However, this year it’s been pushed back to September 13, in hopes that life will have returned to something closer to normal by then.

Epic poet Amanda Gorman is reportedly in talks to co-host the event alongside Tom Ford, who is the academy’s president. The breakout star of President Biden’s inauguration, Gorman is on the cover of the magazine’s May issue and the subject of a relentlessly glowing profile inside.

The black-tie gala, which raises funds for Met’s Costume Institute, is normally fashion’s biggest night and sees guests from Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B to Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and even Maluma.

The event was canceled in 2020 thanks to a global pandemic.

The world’s most glamorous party was canceled in 2020 because of COVID-19, which was (and still is) raging the planet at the time. There was a virtual event in place of the 2020 event, with celebs like Julia Roberts, Priyanka Chopra and Amanda Seyfried showing off their looks from home and stars like Mindy Kaling and Adam Rippon taking part in the #MetGalaChallenge, recreating looks from past years.

This year’s event will draw inspiration from all things USA.

The theme of this year’s Met Gala has not been announced, but Page Six says the night will be devoted to honoring America and American designers, following the 18-month-long COVID crisis in this country.

Recent past themes for the event have included “Camp: Notes on Fashion” (2019), “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” (2018), and “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between (2017). And don’t forget 2016, when Zayn Malik wore robot-arms to Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology.
