The Top 11 Bridal Trends for 2021 Weddings
Harper's Bazaar 2hrs ago
This year proved that wedding celebrations aren't all about the dress—but that fashion is more important than ever before. Fashion for the aisle is now ever more focused on personal style and versatility, as the looks brides invest in may end up being considered for a bevy of new events as they postpone, reconfigure, and replan. What was once all about the ceremony look has now become about the wedding wardrobe: from the civil ceremony to the welcome events, rehearsal dinner, reception, and the after-party, along with the aisle. Approach wedding dress shopping with the understanding that what was once your welcome dinner ensemble might become your look for a civil union; your reception gown or original ceremony look might transition into an anniversary party dress for a bigger gathering next year; and your after-party mini paired with a veil might suit a new type of ceremony. No matter the size of the event, 2021 finally has us looking forward to fashion again—and we're ready. We've looked to the latest bridal, ready-to-wear, and Haute Couture collections to help you navigate your wedding wardrobe for next year's nuptials. From new silhouettes to fresh takes on color and trends past, consider this the fashion bride's guide to dressing for 2021 weddings.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
