    When Frank Ocean Floats Your Boat…But His New Album Doesn’t.

    Put away your pitchforks and blow torches. I’m not about to bag it. I’m just feeling a little conflicted. In 2012 Frank Ocean dropped Channel Orange and had me completely captivated. It was soulful, progressive and musically interesting (something we lack so much of these days). It would not be exaggerating to estimate that I have listened to the whole thing, start to finish, upwards of 100 times since its release. And I’m still not over it.

    So imagine my anticipation when, after all the teasers and false alarms, we finally get two new album drops, in the space of two days: Blond and visual album Endless. Of course I couldn’t remember my Apple ID password. Devastating. Had to create a whole new account before I could listen. But that’s not the point.

    Pleats Please

    There’s few things we like in all their varieties – sorry bacon sundaes – but here we’ll make an exception.

    Big or small, vertical or horizontal, metallic or leather or iridescent pink. From the gold Gucci skirt spotted on every street style savant, to the sharp knife pleats sashaying down every runway – we want pleats in every hue and every variation.

    Navy Is The New Black

    We know you’ve heard it before. And no matter what they say about orange – or black, for that matter – this season, navy is our new number one. Make it tonal with endless varieties – whatcha got to say about that, black? – cool cutouts and lush beading. Join the navy club, baby, and dive into the blue.

    The Muse: Amandla Stenberg

    Amandla Stenberg is cool. Not your nonchalant, Frenchy breed of cool. Not your high school popular, OC teen cool. Just straight up, owning herself, cool.

    She’s more than Jaden Smith’s prom date, more than a cast member in Stella McCartney’s POP campaign (with equally excellent alums Grimes, Lourdes Leon + Kenya Kinski-Jones), and more than her appearance in Beyonce’sLemonade visual album.

    Amandla is a new feminist icon, LGBTQI and #BlackLivesMatter advocate, accomplished essayist and damn stylish lady.

    How To Win At Festival Style This Season

    It needs to be comfy, keep you warm and keep you cool. It should be water resistant and sun safe. Most of all, you need to be able to get dressed (without checking your reflection) and know, without a doubt that it’s going to look damn good. Easy right?

    If you’re one of the lucky ones heading to Splendour In The Grass next weekend, you’re going to need to arm yourself with all the right staples to get you through. Unfortunately the limited space which comes with any road tripping festival means you won’t be able to take your whole wardrobe (just in case).

    Plus, let’s be honest, you’ll probably only end up getting changed once the whole time (because who really wants to have to get naked to shower?).

    Here’s all you’ll really need to dominate your Splendour Bender this year (besides genius hiding spots in your car for prohibited alcoholic beverages).
