Why Using The Word Partner Feels So Complicated

Because of a congenital heart defect, I have an annual checkup with a cardiologist. This yearly visit to the hospital — involving numerous tests, conversations about future surgeries, and a waiting room filled with babies who have only just embarked on the same lifelong journey of doctors’ appointments and arrhythmias that I’ve been on for almost 30 years — is always an existential trip. But perhaps one of the most daunting parts of the day is when the triage nurse asks for my emergency contact info. I give the name, phone number, and address without hesitation, but when she asks: “Relationship to patient?” I stumble. Technically speaking, the answer to this question is: “He’s my boyfriend” — but this particular title just doesn’t quite fit. Answering with “boyfriend,” I have the overwhelming impulse to add more context. I hope

Men’s Fashion Trends 2021: 11 Big Menswear Moves to Try Right Now

If you landed here after curiously googling “men’s fashion trends 2021,” we have an admission to make: it’s a weird time to be trend forecasting! Between the plodding pace of the vaccine rollout and the late January chill that’s set in, there still aren’t a whole lot of public forums for getting fits off, which makes it tricky to assess what people are actually wearing right now or what—if any—true-blue trends are forming and blossoming organically. So today, instead of any real era-defining capital-M Menswear Trends, we’re blessing you with an oddball assortment of things we’re really feeling at the moment. New stuff we want to wear, old stuff we’ve been wearing forever, weird stuff that brings us joy. It’s a lot less surefooted and cohesive than the list of men’s fashion trends we gave you last year, which makes sense: this is a much less surefooted and cohesive

If Street Style Were a Thing Right Now, These 7 Trends Would Rule It

If it were any other year, we’d be sitting down to discuss the major street style moments of the last season and make predictions about what the fashion crowd will don at the next lineup of shows. Obviously, this isn’t just any other year and with continued travel restrictions rendering in-person runway shows obsolete, the typical street style scene just isn’t really a thing anymore (if at all). Of course, that never stopped the stylish set from dressing up and sharing their best looks with us, they’ve simply gone digital.

Well, the same goes for the would-be street style trends of 2021.

Seven themes, to be exact. From the new spring statement color that simply can’t
