    5 Glamour Editors Put Sheertex’s ‘Nearly Indestructible’ Tights to the Test

    Tights may be a cold-weather staple, but they have a notoriously bad rep for being too flimsy, too sheer, and essentially destined for disposal. RIP is the name is of the game—and anything with an edge (stiletto nails, jewelry, your own eyes) is likely to pose a threat to their existence. Enter Sheertex, a direct-to-consumer hosiery brand founded in 2017 by Katherine Homuth, who recognized that “tights were trash” and sought to create the toughest pantyhose on the market.

    Knoxville’s new summer job program aims to put at-risk youth to work

Wearing loungewear everyday was comforting at a time that felt anything but, fleece separates acting almost as individual, wearable blankets.  A year later, reintroducing pants and fitted clothes into my wardrobe has felt like a huge step, but one that signaled a brighter, more certain future. (Plus, I convinced myself that buying, say, vintage party dresses would manifest the return of social gatherings —
