We completely understand that spending money on something you’re just going to use while traveling can be a bit of a deterrent, but having the right travel accessories for trips can make a huge difference in your comfort level, which us Who What Wear editors can confirm. Collectively, we took 80 trips last year, and acquired many wonderfully useful travel accessories along the way. And because we, too, don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on travel accessories, the accessories we recommend below are all under $50.
From the coziest socks to wear on your journey to the most space-saving makeup bag on the market (and everything you could need in between), these are the 18 under-$50 accessories us jet-setting editors swear by. They’re guaranteed to make that tedious trip to the airport significantly more enjoyable (we can vouch).
We probably don’t need to sit here and remind you about why French-girl style is especially appealing. After all, we cover Parisian fashion on the regular to routinely offer up all the effortlessly-cool inspiration you could ever need. On that note, we recently highlighted the simple items an influencer swears by to look more “French,” and thought it may be of interest to dive even deeper into the “basic” pieces that make up a French woman’s wardrobe.
To do this, we went straight to the Instagrams of some of our favorite fashion people. What we uncovered is that Parisian women continue to wear seemingly simple outfits that are made up of more elevated basic items, but the ensembles in question don’t look basic in any way. They’re quite fashion-forward. Hey—what do you expect from the coolest style set out there?
To show you what we mean, we rounded up six French-girl spring outfits that are simple but quite impactful. And while you may have many of the items featured in each fit already in your closet, we shopped out inspired finds as well in case your wardrobe could use a refresh.
Okay, okay, clearly you can’t deny the power of the perfect pair of black leggings. After all, they’re a classic staple at this point as a fashionable way to keep comfortable in your day-to-day. That said, there is actually a smattering of fresh legging trends that we’re particularly into as alternatives to basic black leggings. Because come on—variety is the spice of life, right? So we’re all about mixing it up from time to time.
Ahead, you’ll find the five forward spring trends we’d potentially give up our tried-and-true black leggings for at the moment. To showcase each look, we also rounded up celebrities that have already been wearing said trends for a little style inspiration.

Kendall Jenner and former flame Harry Styles were spotted catching up at The Brits last night – and their fans cannot get enough.
The American model, who was in town for fashion week, was seen chatting away with the singer at the Chiltern Firehouse and their fans took to social media to comment on the seemingly flirty exchange.
It comes after they took part in Spill Your Guts Or Fill Your Guts on The Late Late Show on CBS where the 24-year-old supermodel and 25-year-old singer were flirting up a storm on the show and subsequently sent social media into meltdown over their exchange.
Harry and Kendall were first romantically linked in 2013 and it seems the chemistry is still very much alive.
Kendall even flirtily asked Harry ‘what songs on your last album were about me?’. As avid Directioners will know, Harry admitted that he penned a few hits about his ex-girlfriend.
Speaking to the magazine, the heartthrob explained that the album is a tribute to his ex-girlfriend and described it as “tipping a hat to [their] time together.”
And while he refused to give a name, he is believed to be referring to the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star who he was first linked with in 2013.
“Sometimes you want to tip the hat, and sometimes you just want to give them the whole cap … and hope they know it’s just for them,” Harry said.
Rumours of Kendall and Harry’s romance first circulated in 2013 when they were spotted on several dates. The rumours reached fever-pitch in 2016, with a source telling People: “They’re rekindling their old romance and Kendall’s so excited and happy about it. She’s always cared about Harry.”
The pair reportedly enjoyed a date at Ysabel in LA in September 2016. Speaking about the date, the source said: “Kendall was beaming all night. They’re trying to spend time together again.”
They went on: “[Harry] has thought all along that Kendall is hot and was sort of just waiting for a chance to spend more time with her again.”
According to Us Weekly‘s source: “Her appearance in the [Victoria's Secret] fashion show is what drew him back to her. All of his friends were saying how hot and amazing she looked.”
Whilst neither ever confirmed or denied the romance, it looks like there’s still a lot of chemistry in the air. Watch this space….
Lana Del Rey has cancelled her entire upcoming UK and European tour due to illness.
The singer was due to start her tour tomorrow in Amsterdam before heading through Paris, London, Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham, Berlin, and Cologne.
Speaking in a press release, Del Rey said: “Sorry to let everyone down so last minute but this illness has taken me by surprise and have totally lost my singing voice.” She added that her doctor “has advised four weeks off for the moment. I hate to let everyone down but I need to get well. Love Lana.”
It’s a winter bummer for fans, and there is currently no news as to whether the dates will be rescheduled. The press release says that ticket holders can get refunds by contacting the company they bought their tickets from.
I am not ashamed to admit that I didn’t bat my eyelashes in excitement around the idea of makeup until Rihanna declared she was a makeup girl. Yes, that may seem a little excessively fangirl-ish, but to be fair, until recently, women around the world, myself included, were underserved by the beauty industry. Before Fenty, women of color didn’t have an array of foundational shades catered to us, and while the products and the world of tutorials have exploded to cater to everyone, Rihanna has always been a rule-breaker and led this change within the beauty industry with the launch of Fenty’s foundations.
For the cosmetics-averse like me, something about Rihanna giggling while contouring is life-affirming. Her tutorials and her breakthrough in the industry are an invitation to explore beauty in a way that previously felt intimidating or exclusionary. And while I’m still clamoring for another album (and no amount of Fenty gloss is going to give me her perfect Cupid’s bow lips), in the interim, I’m totally okay binge-watching every tutorial she releases and enjoying every product drop she blesses us with. With that in mind, I’m sharing eleven beauty tips I’ve learned from Rihanna that newbies or makeup artists everywhere can appreciate.
