Xiaomi designs a truly all-screen phone by just turning the notch into an ugly bump

Xiaomi phone

Following the introduction of the iPhone X two years ago, smartphone manufacturers keep finding new ways to give users incrementally more screen real estate in part by housing front-facing sensors in a small notch at the top of the phone, with some notches as small as the shape of a teardrop. It’s a design that’s more a function of limited space options, and not so much a reflection of this being a design choice that users actually want, which is why we’ve seen handset makers experiment a bit with the positioning and shape of the notch over time.

Is Anything Truly Classic in Fashion?

Readers, here’s a question to ponder for today: is anything truly classic in fashion? And if so, what is it? I’ve written before about how when skinny jeans started to come back into style I clung to my bootcuts, insisting that they were a classic look (and one that flattered me). As I write this I’m still not sure I would disagree with the idea of bootcuts as classic, particularly since they’re coming back in fashion now, but what I found was that the things you wear with denim — boots, tops, jackets — all changed to accommodate the look of a skinny jean silhouette, so eventually I felt outdated to wear bootcut jeans. Mark my words, it will happen again as we swing back to denim with more volume on the bottom — it’s the fashion industry’s way of making everyone toe the line and completely replace your wardrobe every ten years. (I’ve said before that I feel like denim trends do influence workwear in significant ways, so keep an eye over the next few years — I wouldn’t be surprised if slim leg ankle pants, the roundest of ballet flats, and untucked/voluminous blouses all start to be scarce…) Readers were recently discussing long necklaces and whether they were in –and I know this question has come up with regards to brooches — so let’s discuss. What does “classic” mean in the fashion context? And what looks or items would you include in the list? Is it a specific base item you adhere to (e.g., bootcut jeans) or is it something more akin to style? 

{related: how to cultivate style}

Things I might argue are classic (but I suspect readers will fight me on at least half of them):

  • a crisp white blouse
  • pointy-toed kitten heels 
  • pointy-toed flats
  • stilettos
  • pencil skirts
  • a sleeveless sheath dress
  • a red lip 
  • classic fitted trench coat

There’s also a list of items that are NEVER “fashionable” but would qualify, I’d argue, as classic, at least in certain parts of the country: pearls, twinsets, Ferragamo pumps, Chanel flats… 

What say you, readers? Is anything truly classic in fashion? Are you making purchasing decisions based on it (i.e., investing a bit more in the workwear pieces you think are classic?)?

Kevin Hart released a truly awful statement about his homophobic tweets

TwitterFacebook

We live in the golden age of bad non-apologies, but Kevin Hart’s response to recent backlash over resurfaced homophobic jokes might take the cake.

“Stop looking for reasons to be negative… Stop searching for reasons to be angry,” Hart wrote in his Instagram, along with a grainy video of him shirtless expressing the same sentiments.

For those playing catch up: On Wednesday, Hart was announced as the host of the 2019 Oscars. Within hours, concerns were raised online that resurfaced a litany of (now-deleted) tweets. 

One described how, if he ever saw his son playing with his daughter’s doll house, “I’m going 2 break it over his head and say n my voice ‘stop that’s gay.'” Others included him using homophobic slurs against other people. Read more…
