This Weekend's Best Online Sales

For me, the most annoying things to shop for are the ones I need for a particular event — knowing full well I probably won’t ever wear them again — and it always feels like springtime is when I’m in this predicament the most. You know what I’m talking about: the multiple bathing suit options for a spring break trip, the perfect wedding-guest dress, the festival-appropriate shoes.

If you’re in the same boat, you’ll be happy to know that somewhere in this weekend’s sale listings below you’ll probably find what you’re looking for at a price you won’t be mad about. (And if you’re in the market for year-round, wear-everywhere, everyday pieces, you won’t be disappointed, either.)  Tanisha Pina, associate market editor

Zara: It’s super rare for Zara to have any major sales, so this 50% off mid-season sale is a pretty big deal, especially if you’re looking to stock up on some transitional pieces without spending a ton. Special shout-outs go out to this shiny pink midi skirt and this lightweight cut-out sweater.

Anthropologie: Take 25% off everything already on sale over at Anthropologie. Even if your style doesn’t read “hip art teacher from Brooklyn,” you won’t want to miss out on the accessories here — especially the shoes. You’ll find a few pairs from Rachel Comey, Charlotte Stone, and Matthew Bernson, just to name a few. Use code SPRINGPERK at checkout.

Banana Republic: For anyone going to a wedding anytime soon, this sale is gold. All dresses and suits are up to 40% off, in all different styles, fits, and colors.

Current/Elliott: Need new denim? Of course you do. Thankfully, you can take up to 60% off new sale items over at Current/Elliott this weekend. Tons of jeans are marked down under $120, and dozens of easy T-shirts and sweaters to go with them are marked even lower.

J.Crew Factory: It always feels like you’re getting a deal at J.Crew Factory — because you are — but this weekend, that’s only more true with an extra 40% off clearance sale using the code TOPITOFF.

Calvin Klein: One day, all of this pre-Raf Simons stuff will be #rare vintage, so stock up now while you can. This weekend, take an additional 40% off of sale items, including denim jackets, the infamous activewear, and a lot of dresses. Shop women here, and men here.

Send these sales to your friend who needs 50% off at Zara.

Fashion’s Oscars Will Honor Planned Parenthood

Following a flood of anti-Trump political messaging from designers at New York Fashion Week, the Council of Fashion Designers of America (the industry’s major trade organization) is drawing attention to Planned Parenthood and the Women’s March at its annual awards show, a.k.a. the CFDA Awards, a.k.a. the Oscars of fashion.

Gloria Steinem, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, and Janelle Monáe will be receiving a special tribute for their work at the Women’s March, the CFDA said Thursday. (Monáe, a true fashion maverick, gave a speech at the protest.) The CFDA has been ramping up its support for Planned Parenthood recently: It publicly stated its position just before NYFW and, after launching a campaign to raise awareness for the women’s health organization, began fundraising for it, too.

Makeup Can Give Trans Women Freedom — But It Can Also Take It Away
Makeup

On most mornings, Riley Silverman prepares for her day with a simple makeup routine: BB cream, maybe some light foundation, eyeliner, occasionally a little lipstick. It’s a daily ritual that’s familiar to many women, and the way Silverman talks about her favorite beauty items — describing her eyeliner as “war paint” that armors her against the outside world — is of a piece with how other makeup aficionados (like, for instance, Lorde) discuss their cosmetic habits. But the idea of makeup as a protective force isn’t just a metaphor for Silverman: As a trans woman, she relies on makeup to have a very real impact on how she’s perceived in the world, and on whether people out in the world respect and affirm her identity.

Among cisgender (or non-trans) people, makeup is often assumed to be a significant component — if not the entirety — of trans women’s gender confirmation. The idea of “becoming a woman” through careful application of lipstick, foundation, and fake hair is fetishized across pop culture; countless movies and TV shows have played up the trope of gender transformation through makeup and clothing alone. In The Danish Girl, Lili Elbe has her trans awakening while putting on stockings and holding a dress; movies like The Silence of the Lambs signify characters’ gender identities through elaborately staged makeover scenes.

And that perceived relationship between superficial signifiers and gender identity also forms the basis of one of the most common criticisms lobbed at trans women. When Caitlyn Jenner told Diane Sawyer that she was looking forward to being “able to have my nail polish on long enough that it actually chips off,” some critics latched onto this as proof Jenner was cherry-picking the fun parts of femininity and confusing them for the whole of womanhood. “Nail polish does not a woman make,” Elinor Burkett noted in the New York Times, a line echoing the persistent criticism that trans women conflate external femininity with “true” womanhood.

But there’s a cruel irony to Burkett’s statement, because the idea that external appearance is what makes someone a “real” woman is the very thing that many trans women have committed themselves to fighting. To the extent that makeup is an essential part of any trans woman’s gender identity or notion of her womanhood, it’s largely because that’s the message the rest of the world aggressively forces upon her.

The Mousse that Gives Me ‘90s Hair, in a Good Way

Drybar Southern Belle Volumizing Mousse, $26

I want to look like I put my hands on one of those spheres at museums that make your hair stick straight up, just with less static and more volume. I tried all of the things — volumizing sprays, shampoos, foam curlers — but none of it worked for my hair, which has the straightest, finest, limpest texture, kind of like overcooked linguine. And then I got my paws on Drybar’s Southern Belle Mousse.

After showering, I let my hair air-dry, squirt an extra-large-lemon-size amount of mousse into my palms, smack them together, and coat my hair. I make sure to really massage it into the roots, and then comb through to equally distribute the love. Once I blow dry, my hair is all poufed up like a meteorologist reporting from the coast during a hurricane. And it smells delicious: slightly musky and amber, but squeaky clean like a church picnic with a hint of fresh laundry. —Alex Beggs, contributing writer
