Ok, zoom in on J.Alb in this pic. So cute, right? If it’s still chilly in your neck of the woods, just pair a knit, crewneck sweater with a pastel-colored ballgown skirt. This look is classic and church-appropriate without sacrificing style.

Again, everyone in this pic is cute, but let’s just focus on our girl Jessica. A body-skimming lace (or, in this case, sort of lace-adjacent) dress allows you to be cute and kinda sexy while still looking sweet enough for Easter. Show your bold side with accent colors. Just LOOK at Jessica’s hot pink shoes.

Crop Top + VOLUME

Yellow is such an underrated color. This pastel, Easter-egg yellow shade is fun and festive. Pair a cute, voluminous skirt in this color with a more fitted crop top. Just throw on a fitted blazer, cardigan or jean jacket for a look that’ll take you from misa to brunch without a hitch.

Prints + Solid

A skirt in a fun print can dress up any occasion! Let your skirt take center stage with a more muted, solid-colored top. Add interest with a cute collar. Don’t forget to accessorize, too. In this case, a glitzy necklace looks great tucked under a peter pan collar.

Knotted Top + Tube Dress

Afraid to wear a tube dress or spaghetti straps to church?  Add a button-up shirt and tie it at the waist.  Ta-da! A perfect spring outfit.

Power Accessories

Polka dot socks n saddle shoe loafers

Don’t ever let your personal style take a backseat, even on a religious holiday. Love polka-dot socks? Dark nails? Pair more daring accessories with a neutral, unfussy outfit, and it’ll work – especially if you toss in seasonally-appropriate pastels as an accent. (In this case, the blossoms in Jessica’s hair.)

Happy Easter!

Dominicans and the fashion world are mourning the death of Dominican fashion designer Jenny Polanco. The world-renowned designer had just traveled to Spain when she fell ill. People are showing their love and appreciation of Polanco on social media in a time when physical activities have been limited.

Dominican fashion designer Jenny Polanco has died from COVID-19.

The Dominican Republic’s public health minister Rafael Sánchez announced Polanco’s death. Polanco is the first Latino celebrity who has died from the virus. Polanco is among the first six people to die from the novel coronavirus on the Caribbean island.

Miami Fashion Week dedicated a tribute post to the Caribbean fashion designer.

The designer showed a collection at the last Miami Fashion Week and her sudden loss has saddened those associated with the event. Polanco was able to celebrate her Caribbean roots with the classic avant-garde style. Her take on fashion was breathtaking in its simplicity coupled with their energetic shapes.

Fashion fans are offering loving tributes to Polanco.

“May Dominican designer jenny Polanco rest in peace,” the Twitter user wrote. “The coronavirus took a creative, colorful, beach mind.”

Polanco, like many people who have taken ill, had recently traveled.

A lot of people who have tested positive in the first wave of infections in different countries had recently traveled to a country where the virus was spreading. Since the start of the outbreak, some countries have closed their borders and set travel restrictions as a way to slow the spread of COVID-19.

If you are feeling sick, call your doctor and tell them your symptoms. You can also visit the CDC for more information about COVID-19 and what you can do to prevent catching the virus and what to do if you get sick.

Mattel Just Launched A Line Of Barbies With Skin Tones and Hair Styles Of All Types

Mattel’s efforts to shake up the perception of their Barbie dolls continues! In the latest collection, which was released for Black History Month, the brand tapped a Black designer queen to create a collection that was truly inclusive, brilliantly Black and beautiful. The new line features a rainbow of Black skin tones and hairstyles that include afros, braids, and women in wheelchairs.

For their latest collection, the brand behind Barbie collaborated with creative consultant Shiona Turini.

The Bermudan stylist and costumer designer for the 2019 film “Queen & Slim” came up with over 20 looks for the new collection.

“I’ll never forget being in New York as a young black girl and finding a Black Barbie, and especially a Black Barbie birthday set,” Turini told People magazine in a recent interview. “Barbie is a historic brand that was inclusive before it was trendy.”

As part of her inspiration, Turini used the original Black Barbie (1980).

Turini paired up the original look with a Barbie in an afro.

“That was the basis for this image,” Turini explained in the interview. “We decided to have her on her throne with the other dolls dressed in her likeness, also in the red to support her.”

According to Turni, every aspect of the collection drew inspiration from Black activists.

Turini says she also found inspiration in the film Queen & Slim for the outfits in this most recent collection.

“When I worked on the movie ‘Queen & Slim’ the stand-out, ‘hero’ look for me was mixing snakeskin and tiger prints in the same look,” Barbie Style explained. “The contrast of the two patterns completely subverts expectations, and I was excited to use the same formula on pieces such as Barbie’s thigh-high boots to break the traditional mold of dolls I had grown up playing with.”

As we’ve seen with the Frida, La Catrina, and the recent release of vitiligo and hairless Barbie, it’s important that ALL people feel seen. “Representation matters and I’m so grateful to be a part of this moment,” she told CR Fashion Book.
