Viral trick: now let’s combine a shawl with a chain
Who doesn’t know this – with so many outfits you are often spoiled for choice. Especially when it comes to decorating the neck, it is sometimes not that easy to decide on a delicate necklace or a noble scarf. With this new hack, we have the right solution for such situations, because why should you choose between chain and cloth when you can also combine both.
To do this, thread your scarf through the closed chain and put both around your neck. Then you tie the scarf together at the side and you already have an elegant combination of chain and scarf. If you want, you can tie a bow from the two ends of the cloth. Tip: Thicker chains, such as pearl chains, are best.

That’s why Mattel is now thrilling with Down Syndrome Barbie
Toy manufacturer Mattel is taking another step towards inclusivity with a new Barbie that allows children with Down Syndrome to see themselves in a Barbie. The new model comes in a playful flower dress, with a pink necklace and enchants with long, ashy hair. Mattel Vice President Lisa McKnight said, “Our goal is to enable all children to see themselves in Barbie, while encouraging children to play with dolls that don’t look like themselves.”
The Barbie was designed in cooperation with the US Down Syndrome Society. In collaboration, care was taken to ensure that the face and body resemble those of women who have trisomy 21. The new Barbie’s face appears rounder, the bridge of the nose flatter and the eyes more almond-shaped. German Ambassador Natalie Dedreux explains why this step is so important: “I think it’s important that there are Barbie dolls with Down syndrome, because you make people with Down syndrome more visible. And that more attention is paid to that, then Society notices and sees that something like that is also cool.”

Hole ballerinas: This shoe trend is now setting the tone
Attention shoe fans! Because there is a new trend that scores not only visually, but also functionally. The hole shoes are reminiscent of classic ballerinas, but differ in the material, because here many small holes adorn the top of the shoe. The hole ballerinas not only make a fashion statement, the holes also ensure better ventilation of the feet. At the same time, they are the ideal change from simple models and are guaranteed to attract attention. Many influencers are already using the trend for themselves. It remains to be seen whether the unusual shoe design will prevail in the long term.

No models: PrimaDonna’s new bra campaign shoots with women of different age groups
The feeling of a really well-fitting bra is indescribable: no pinching, no pinching – a feeling of freedom. And who could describe that better than women like you and me? The Belgian lingerie company PrimaDonna thought the same and shot a new campaign together with five women from different age groups and countries. It not only expresses beautiful silhouettes, forms and bodies, but also reports of experiences, from which feelings such as gratitude, relief and pride speak.
One testimonial comes from Ulrike, who tried on a PrimaDonna bra about seven years ago, she says: “It was love at first sight. I still wear this bra by the way. At the time I wasn’t as confident as I am now, but putting that bra on made me feel like a woman. A woman who can be proud of who she is and what she has. PrimaDonna means to me: I deserve to love myself.”
