We Skimmed All Things Skims So You Don’t Have To

Skims is a brand that needs no introduction (especially if you’re on TikTok), but for anyone who isn’t familiar, it’s Kim Kardashian’s truly revolutionary underwear, loungewear, and shapewear brand. We feel confident when we say that anyone browsing all the offerings from Skims is sure to find at least one piece of clothing that fits them better than anything they’ve worn before: that’s how versatile the brand is.

However, because Skims has so many stylish and unique pieces on offer, including dozens of intimates that you’ll want to have as staples in your wardrobe, you might not know where to begin. So we’ve selected our favorite Skims pieces to jumpstart your journey to wearing more comfortable and flattering clothing.



Fits Everybody Triangle Bralette


If you love the comfort of a bralette but haven’t had luck finding one that actually provides support, the Skims Fits Everybody Triangle Bralette is exactly what you need. It’s made of two-ply supportive, stretchy fabric that feels creamy on the skin and won’t ever be tight enough to leave a mark. The straps are adjustable, and it features triangle cups without any underwire, making it perfect for everyday wear. This is a great bra for clingy cotton t-shirts that are often tricky to wear with other bras, or for when you’re lounging at home.

Fits Everybody Long Slip Dress


This is the dress you’ve probably seen all over Instagram and for good reason. Its simple, elegant silhouette sits snugly on the body and it’s the perfect accessory for your favorite statement necklace or pair of earrings. It’s one of those dresses you can easily wear all day and night while maintaining comfort. Because of its very stretchy fabric, it helps shape your body and it provides enough support that you won’t need to wear it with a bra.

Fits Everybody Push-up Demi Bra


How many times have you bought a bra online and had to return it for a different size? Almost every time, am I right? Though the Skims size guide for bras is one of the most comprehensive I’ve ever seen, you might still miss the mark while purchasing your own Fits Everybody Push-up Demi Bra. However, there’s no need to despair. This bra’s 360 stretch fabric makes it fit any in-between sizes and even though it has push-up foam pads, they won’t wildly distort your shape like other padded bras.

Fit Everybody High Neck Bodysuit


Out of all the Skims’ sculpting bodysuits, I love the High Neck silhouette the most because of how great it looks with a pair of jeans or a skirt. It has a thong back so that it remains invisible under other clothing and like all other Skims pieces, molds itself to your shape while compressing you at the same time.

Sculpting Mid Waist Brief


This is truly the best thing to own if your wardrobe consists mostly of form-fitting dresses. The Sculpting Mid Waist Brief won’t show under your tightest of clothing and an added benefit is that it provides core support while also shaping and lifting your derrière. Like many Skims items, each sizing option spans two sizes at a time, making it easy to get just the right fit for any body type.

Cozy Knit Pullover


This is the teddy bear pullover of your dreams. It’s a little bit oversized; very, very plush; and the perfect thing to wear while lounging around at home. For optimized coziness, wear it on a rainy night when you decided to stay in (while all your friends are texting about being in the rain without umbrellas), and match it with the Cozy Knit Short or the Cozy Knit Pant.

Faux Leather Catsuit


The Faux Leather Catsuit is definitely the antithesis of the Cozy Knit Pullover, but we love it for that. It’s great for a big night out when you don’t feel like thinking about a multi-piece outfit, and you can easily dress it up or down, depending on the occasion. Its built-in bra and invisible back zipper give it an even more seamless air.

Glissenette Slip Dress


The Glissenette Slip Dress is great for anyone who’s ever wished they could wear their cute slip as a dress. Its lightly lined bra cups mean you won’t need additional support, and it easily molds to the shape of your body, glistening as you move in it. We love a dress that can stand on its own, or provide a canvas for your favorite accessories, and that’s exactly the kind of versatility you’ll find with this piece.


The hype is real — so what are you waiting for? It’s time to empty your underwear drawer and redefine the way clothing can make you feel.

This 5-Question Checklist Will Help You Build Your Dream Wardrobe

Whether you consider yourself a lover of fashion or not, it’s always shocking how easy it is to get to a point where your closet is overflowing. A couple of sales happen and all of a sudden, what was once an organized masterpiece is exploding and in need of a purge—been there, done that too many times to count.


In 2023, we’re aiming to do a few fewer closet clean-outs and instead to shop a little more strategically. There’s nothing more rewarding than adding a piece to your closet that you love and wear for years, and with a little bit of forethought, every piece can give you that experience. 

The next time you go to click “add to cart” or head to the checkout line, these are the questions to ask yourself before buying something. Your “thought I loved it but have never worn it” pile is about to get a whole lot smaller.

Can I style this three different ways with pieces I already own?

All too often, we fall into the trap of buying something new to wear because we have one killer outfit in mind to style it for. And if you can do that, that’s great—but you should be able to style a piece more than one way to justify buying it. Try to think of three different outfits you can wear with it that you’d enjoy wearing. If it requires buying even more pieces to style it in ways you’d like, it isn’t the right call to purchase it.

Would I buy this if it were full price?

We know, we know, it’s hard to resist the temptations of a sale. But one of the most game-changing mentalities to have with sales is this: If something is marked down from $100 to $60, you aren’t saving $40—you’re still spending $60. If something you know you’ll love and wear is on sale, by all means, add it to your cart. But if you’re buying something just because it’s on sale, that’s another story.

The best question to ask yourself is if you would obsess over it as much if it wasn’t on sale. If the discount is the main thing enticing you, it’s best to pass.


Does this fit me right?

Especially in the post-pandemic age of online shopping, it’s easy to order something in a size that ends up being not quite right and end up keeping it because returning it would be too much of a hassle. Ask yourself: If you were shopping in-store and were trying it on in a fitting room, would you go grab a bigger or smaller size? If you would, it’s best to return or exchange it.


If you are shopping in-store and your size is out of stock and you’re trying to make an ill-fitting piece work, trust us: It’s best to wait for something that fits you right, unless you have the intent to tailor it.


Am I only buying this because it’s trendy?

Especially with different trends and pieces going viral on TikTok by the week, it’s easier than ever to buy something to hop on the bandwagon of a trend. While we’re victims of this too, the key is to make sure you like the piece. For example, if you like the idea of the sheer top trend but wearing it makes you uncomfortable, that isn’t the trend for you. Fashion is subjective; don’t buy something just because everyone else is.


What will the cost per wear be?

One of the most useful things to consider when purchasing something is its cost per wear or the cost of the item divided by the number of times you’ll wear it. It might sound better to buy a $200 pair of statement boots than a $500 pair of classic loafers, but if you only wear the statement boots a couple of times a year and would wear the loafers multiple times a week, the cost per wear means the loafers are the worthwhile purchase.

A great example of cost per wear is a wedding guest dress. If you know you won’t be able to get more wear out of it than one wedding, it’s better to rent a dress or borrow one from a friend to avoid it taking up closet space for all of eternity after one night in it.

This Viral Fall Trend Would Make Blair Waldorf Proud

Step aside, coastal grandmother—Eloise is at The Plaza. The mischievous literary heroine took over a world-famous luxury hotel, and now almost 70 years later, is running the world of fashion TikTok. Plazacore is the new, not-so-new aesthetic inspired by the lavish style of a fictional 6-year-old, and we’re very much here for it.


Pleated skirts, puffy sleeves, and all things prep, prep, prep are ruling our fall wardrobes, much like we imagine Eloise’s wardrobe if she was getting dressed in 2022. Ready to experience the new aesthetic in all its glory? Here’s how.

What Is Plazacore? 

The name of the Plazacore game is all-prep everything. Pull off the trend by taking cues from another Fifth Ave icon, Blair Waldorf, who knows how to dress the part of schoolgirl-meets-Plaza Princess.


If you want to keep it simple, start with a classic black-and-white outfit and add extra oomph in the form of pink hair bows, pearl headbands, or a patent leather purse. If you’re ready to dive in head-first, opt for a tweed set and a pair of Mary Janes to experience it in full force. See? So posh. So polished. No Upper East Side address is necessary.


Our Plazacore outfit inspiration

For the ultimate Plazacore look, a preppy dress, velvet headband, and Mary Janes are your best bet. This one-and-done dress offers both flouncy blouse details and tweed texture, making it the perfect on-trend piece for work and play alike. The cherry on top? A pearl-embellished bag.


Miniskirts are still having a moment this fall, which means we’re taking advantage of the Plazacore trend by opting for one in a preppy tweed fabric that we can wear again and again. With a white button-up featuring a frilly collar and a pink cardigan, it’s a transitional fall day’s dream.


Looking to be in on Plazacore in a more subtle way? Opt for a Peter Pan collar blouse, trousers, and a pearl headband. It gives a preppy twist to a classic look that’s perfect for a crisp fall office day—especially with a pair of slingbacks.

7 Fall Outfits Inspired by Our Favorite Rom-Coms

Imagine life as a romantic comedy. Strangers would join you in spontaneous dance sequences set to Hall & Oates. You’d live in an extravagant brownstone apartment, steps away from your closest friends. Hinge dates wouldn’t be awful. You could finally delete all the dating apps because you’d soon reunite with the one who got away while perusing your local bookstore in the perfect fall outfit. This best friend-turned-soulmate would profess their love at a New Year’s Eve party, and (surprise!) you’d live happily ever after.

If only the trajectory of our lives could be written by Nora Ephron. Instead, we must settle for reality—i.e., fewer grand gestures and even fewer grand apartments (excuse me while I raise my eyebrows at Jenna Rink’s massive closet in 13 Going On 30). But all hope isn’t lost. While our ordinary lives may never compare to a screenplay, there is one thing we can all emulate: our favorite rom-com heroine’s fall outfits. After all, there’s a Meg Ryan in all of us, daydreaming about bouquets of newly sharpened pencils.


You’ve Got Mail

Let us introduce you to Kathleen Kelly, the queen of versatile fall layers. Whether she’s ambling about New York City or emailing NY152 from her perfectly imperfect Upper West Side apartment, she somehow manages to look both timeless and effortless in every single scene.

While choosing the best outfit from You’ve Got Mail is an outright impossible task, there’s one look that’ll always work (in 1998 and 2022): a long-sleeve bodysuit under a jumper dress. Kathleen completes the ensemble with tights, loafers, and, later on, a chunky coat and scarf. These layers upon layers of muted neutrals are a fail-proof way to dress this fall.


Pretty Woman

Her on-screen chemistry with Richard Gere is palpable, and her evolving sense of style is a whole mood. When the weather can’t make up its mind between summer and fall, may we suggest channeling Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman? Because let’s face it: You can never go wrong with a short suit. One of Vivian’s slightly more understated (but trendy as ever) fashion moments deserves a place in your closet.

To 2022-ify it, keep the monochrome look going with a cropped blazer and matching jeans. It’ll become your go-to outfit on a 65-degree day—you know, the days when you can’t decide what to wear for the life of you. Now, you’ll be prepared.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Fads, by definition, will always come and go. Whenever you’re not sure what to wear, revert to the classics. Pull an Audrey Hepburn and Golightly on the accessories with a statement trench coat and hair scarf. You’ll be ready for anything that comes your way, including an impromptu make out session in the rain.


When Harry Met Sally

It wouldn’t be a fall rom-com roundup without mentioning the fall rom-com. Look at that—Meg Ryan strikes again. How dare she be this consistently fashionable? While her Central Park outfit (the one with the bowler hat) might be the most iconic, her red cable-knit sweater tucked into a black skirt is a classic worth repeating. Yep, we would wear what she’s wearing.


Crazy Rich Asians

There’s so much to love about this movie: the storytelling, the representation, Henry Golding’s abs—and of course, the opulence. Sure, it’s not every day that we can do a Cinderella-esque ball gown. But the red baby doll dress Rachel wears while spending the day with her friend feels a tad more attainable. Slingback pumps and a trench will make this dressier look suitable for any occasion.


Love and Other Drugs

Before Taylor Swift released the 10-minute version of All Too Well, we were Jake Gyllenhaal fans. And we’ll leave it at that because this is about Anne Hathaway and her impeccable style both on and off-screen. In Love and Other Drugs, we can’t help but fall for her free-spirited nature and effortless outfits, like the overalls and camel coat that appear throughout the film. For those days you plan to stay inside your sprawling, industrial-style loft, we suggest opting for a cozy cable-knit sweater and relaxed-fit jeans.


500 Days of Summer

It’s been 13 years, and we are still not over how anyone could reject the perfection that is Joseph Gordon-Levitt. We get it, it’s a story about love, not a love story. Such a refreshing take. Whatever. But Summer redeems herself with her romantic and retro style. Feeling blue (like Tom)? Go for a vintage blouse and a-line denim skirt.
