With its supportive fit and wide crisscross straps, P.E Nation's 'Speedway' sports bra is perfect for medium-impact workouts - think cycling or kickboxing. It's made from moisture-wicking stretch fabric and has a striped, elasticated underband that's centered with the label's moniker.
The tea kettle, that humble household necessity, has historically conveyed the notion of comfort. Steeping tea to be served with cookies (or "biscuits", per the English) is a time-honored symbol of hospitality. Then in 1980s America, tea kettles became status objects: Italian architect Aldo Rossi designed a sleek number for Alessi and architect Michael Graves designed his famous kettle topped by a red, chirping bird. It was the whistle heard around the world.
Today, tea kettles are must-haves on any wedding registry. Coveted styles include the retro SMEG design and the super cute kettles from Kate Spade. Even if you don't drink tea, a kettle is a must-have for boiling the water used in a French press for coffee or for hot chocolate. No hostess is prepared without one, particularly while hosting a brunch, a book club or holiday parties. We've rounded up the best tea kettles for your wedding registry from Anthropologie, Neiman Marcus, Williams-Sonoma and more. (And don't forget the Fortnum & Mason Wedding Bouquet Blend, a tea developed to commemorate the marriage of Prince Henry ("Harry") of Wales and Meghan Markle!)
Luggage is a purchase you only make once every few years (hopefully), so it's important to shop wisely. While you're of course looking for quality travel gear that's durable and roomy, you don't want to go broke before you've even gotten to the airport. Wedding and honeymoon planning is expensive enough — so avoid spending a small fortune by shopping luggage from stores like Kohl's and Walmart. The luggage sets ahead are functional, fashionable and, best of all, affordable — they're all under $150.
There are a few go-to retailers brides can always count on for stylish fashion finds, especially BHLDN and David's Bridal. With offerings ranging from dresses and shoes to lingerie and even decor, these two stores have literally got you (and your bridal party) covered from head to toe. If you're in the throes of wedding planning and haven't completed your bridal look yet, don't stress. Thanks to Black Friday deals and Cyber Monday sales on the horizon, there's a pretty good chance you'll be able to score a deal on the wedding dress (or accessory, etc.) of your dreams at these bridal destinations. Last year, BHLDN featured up to 70% off select styles, including gowns starting at $500, bridesmaids and party dresses starting at $100, and accessories starting at $30. Oh, and brides-to-be scored free shipping on their orders. David's Bridal had select shoes and accessories up for grabs from $4.99 to $29.99, 50% off select wedding dresses, $29.95 robes, $99 Donna Morgan bridesmaids dresses, and $299 select Truly Zac Posen wedding dresses. On Cyber Monday and Tuesday, they also gave shoppers 20% off online orders. Suffice it to say, we think this bodes well for 2018 deals. Ahead, we're highlighting our favorite dresses, shoes and accessories on offer from David's Bridal and BHLDN, so get ready to swoon — and then keep an eye out for Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals. These stunning picks could just be among them.
What's your sign? Better yet, what are all your bridesmaids' signs? Whether it's the traditional zodiac based on Western astrology and ancient Greco-Roman mythology or the Chinese zodiac that repeats its animal signs on a 12-year cycle, these personal (albeit superstitious...) symbols never fail to fascinate. Incorporating the various zodiac signs and representative animals into personalized jewelry for your wedding day is a welcome trend, be it in the form of a signature piece for the bride or a special gift for your best gals. We can't predict the future, but we can promise your bridal party will have stars in their eyes over these beautiful necklaces, pendants, charms, bracelets and rings from Nordstrom, Etsy, Urban Outfitters and more.
Flower crowns are all the rage in decorative headpieces, allowing a creative bride to imbue her wedding with a boho fairy vibe. These flower crowns have roots in mythology and art and can be traced back to ancient Greece, where people wore them to celebrate the gods. Flower crowns made a major comeback during the '60s and '70s, when hippies ushered them in as a symbol of peace, love and intimacy with nature.
Bridesmaids, flower girls and brides can all accessorize themselves with floral crowns for a romantic wedding filled with blooms. Any hairstyle will accommodate a flower crown, whether it's sitting atop cascading tresses, encircling a high, wavy ponytail or wrapped around an elegant bun. Angela Cosmai, celebrity colorist and color corrector at Pierre Michel Salon in New York City, says, "A lovely idea to pair with a flower crown is a headband braid, which can be achieved with your hair or by adding a faux braid. Wrap the braid around the head then intertwine the hair in and out of the flower crown to give you a whimsical look."
Most brides won't want to part with their flower crown after the big day, and they don't have to: These crowns, available at favorite retailers including ASOS, David's Bridal, Amazon and more, can do double duty as a festival accessory. Watch out, Coachella!
