The 18 Most Comfortable Heels for Summer 2019

I love wearing comfortable heels. I love the extra height and the way they elevate a simple summer dress because let’s be real, who needs blisters, sore arches, and other pains that come with wearing uncomfortable heels for eight hours straight? No one. Every time I kick off a particularly ache-inducing pair of heels, I vow to never, ever wear heels again. That “promise” never lasts long though. And luckily, I’ve learned that there are a few key elements that separate the comfy heels from the ones that make you curse the day you bought them.

The first (and most obvious) is heel height: the lower the heel, the less weight is forced onto the ball of your foot. The second is the width of the heel, an often overlooked detail that can make a big difference—seek out a stacked style that supports the lower part of your foot. Lastly, find comfortable heel styles that have multiple straps across the toe, arch, and ankle; multiple straps, like the Raye pair from Revolve I picked in the roundup ahead, will give your foot and ankle more stability so you aren’t wobbling around.

You don’t have to sacrifice style for comfort—as long as you know what to look for. Ahead, you’ll find TK pairs of walkable, summer-ready most comfortable heels that will support you when you have places to be. Your toes will thank you.

Priyanka Chopra Wore a Straight-Off-the-Runway Peter Pilotto Look with $68 Kendra Scott Earrings

Priyanka Chopra‘s sister-in-law, Sophie Turner, may be the Queen in the North, but she’s the master of high-low fashion—whether it’s $50 American Eagle jeans and a $3,100 Prada bag or a $30 Target skirt with a $210 Wolford bodysuit. She proved her prowess once again in Paris this week, stepping out in fresh-off-the-runway designer with under-$100 accessories.

Chopra (and husband, Nick Jonas) are currently living their best lives—and wearing their best outfits—in France ahead of Turner and Joe Jonas’s second wedding, which is reportedly happening this weekend. Of course, she brought her mix-and-match skill along for the trip. Her latest head-turning look featured a gorgeous metallic off-the-shoulder top with matching flared pants by Peter Piotto.

Peter Pilotto’s fall collection isn’t available for purchase yet, but similar metallic pieces from Pre-Fall 2019 retail between $2,070 and $2,895.

Of course, this being Priyanka Chopra, there’s an affordable twist to her Paris outfit: She accessories the designer apparel with a pair of geometric hoop earrings from Kendra Scott that cost just $68.

Chopra’s Easton Hoop Earrings are still available to buy online and are seriously the perfect accessory to pair with everything from fancy gold evening wear (à la Priyanka) or a casual summer dress.

We’ve still got many days of stylish time in Paris ahead of the reported weekend wedding, so who knows what sartorial fun Chopra, Jonas, and the other J Sisters will bring us ahead of the big day. Here’s hoping we get some great photos of the rest of the wedding guests, too—and that at least a few pieces will work for our budgets.

Every Time the Jonas Brothers Have Gone on Group Dates With the J Sisters

One of the biggest thrills of 2019 is the fact the Jonas Brothers are back together. Not only are they creating music again (stream “Sucker” on Spotify!), they’re also all married: Kevin to Danielle Jonas, Nick to Priyanka Chopra, and Joe to Sophie Turner. And it’s clear this hexagon of hot people is obsessed with each other: They’re literally always hanging out. Whether it’s checking out a Broadway show, spending time with their extended family, or drinking wine on boats, this group takes in-law bonding to a whole new level. In fact, Danielle, Priyanka, and Sophie are so tight that they’ve given themselves a cheeky nickname: “The J Sisters.”

The Jonas Brothers and the J Sisters have shared some cute moments over the past couple of months. Let’s go through some of their most exciting outings, shall we? (I’m just assuming that my invitation somehow got lost in the mail.)

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Home Renovations Cost Taxpayers Over $3 Million

Meghan Markle‘s engagement ring isn’t the only thing in her life that’s recently been redesigned. A new report released by the royal family is giving us all some new details about the renovations to her and Prince Harry‘s new house.

The Sovereign Grant Report is basically a breakdown of spending by the royal family that comes from public funds. (The family, of course, also has enormous personal wealth that is not funded by the taxpayers, and Markle had amassed her own money before marrying Harry last year.)

The report shows that the renovations to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, a gift to the Sussexes from Queen Elizabeth II, cost over $3 million. (That’s in U.S. dollars—the renovations are about 2.4 million pounds.) Obviously, that’s a lot of money and more than most of us could ever imagine spending on…anything. But the home was built all the way back in 1801 and had previously been broken down into multiple apartments, necessitating a conversion back into a single home. “A very large proportion of the ceiling beams and floor joists were defective and had to be replaced,” a source told People. Updates were also necessary for the heating, water, and electrical systems to get them up to modern standards.

And some of these renovations to the historic structure were going to be necessary, even if Markle, Harry, and baby Archie weren’t calling it home. “The property had not been the subject of work for some years and had already been earmarked for renovation in line with our responsibility to maintain the condition of the occupied Royal Palaces Estate,” Sir Michael Stevens, Keeper of the Privy Purse, told reporters at Buckingham Palace.

Per People, British taxpayer money funded the structural renovations of the home including the exterior doors, windows, and walls and upgrading some of the other buildings on the property. But “anything moveable,” for example, was paid for personally by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. “All fixtures and fittings were paid for by their Royal Highnesses,” a royal source told the magazine. “Curtains, furnishings—all that would be paid separately, paid privately.”

“If a member of the royal family says, ‘We want a better kitchen than you’re prepared to provide with public money,’ then that would fall to them privately and they would have to meet the cost,” the source continues. “If they want that higher specification, they have to pay the extra.” Apparently those rumors of a yoga studio with a “floating” floor were simply that, rumors, as that luxe feature is not mentioned in the report.

Katie Sturino x Stitch Fix: The Ultimate Summer Capsule Collection Is Available in Sizes 0 to 24

Is your summer mood “always on vacation”? Whether that’s real or metaphorical, Katie Sturino has your wardrobe figured out.

The woman behind The 12ish Style has a brand-new design partnership—this time, with the online retail styling service Stitch Fix—made for a shopper with a sense of wanderlust. The 21-piece capsule collection is filled with easy, breezy, colorful summer pieces inspired by Sturino’s upcoming honeymoon in Italy. (It’s appropriately titled Summer in Capri.)

“I always dress like I’m about to go on vacation somewhere,” Sturino tells Glamour. “I feel that’s the theme of the collection: You can style it for the office or pack the whole thing and take it on a trip. It’s fun, breathable. I don’t think you’re going to want to throw these pieces away. You buy the caftan and you’re going to wear it next summer, the summer after.”

Because this is Stitch Fix and because Sturino’s long been a vocal advocate for size inclusivity in the fashion industry, everything will be available in sizes 0 to 24 and XS to 3X. This isn’t the company’s first influencer partnership (it collaborated with Gal Meets Glam’s Julia Engel earlier this year), but it’s definitely its largest, both in terms of product and sizing. This is, however, the first time Sturino designs something in both straight and plus sizes. “Collaborations I’ve done in the past have been only plus—which I think is fine and necessary, but it does continue to breed an element of separation,” she says. “I really like that I can dress all my friends who are different sizes.” Prices are just as accessible, ranging from $54 to $98.

Sturino started talking to Stitch Fix about a potential collaboration back in October, when she visited the company’s HQ in San Francisco. A few things caught her eye, but what really impressed her was meeting an in-house fit specialist that helps inform its product selection, particularly for its plus-size customers. “What I’ve found with Stitch Fix is that it takes one or two boxes for you to get in a rhythm, but the one thing that happens every single time is [good] fit,” she says.

Sturino knows exactly what she likes and what she doesn’t when it comes to clothes: “I don’t want a shirt to hit at the clavicle, I want it to go lower; I don’t want my skirts to go below my knee, I’m actually good with a mini. There are certain things that are assumed with plus-size clothing. I feel—I hope—in my first collection, I’ve taken a stab at bringing in some things I prefer to wear and that I think other women do, too.”

A few things were very important to Sturino in the making of this collection. First, she had to actually want to wear everything in it. Second, the fabrics needed to be on-point. “When I touch it, I like it—I don’t feel it’s cheap or gross or something I would put on for one second and take off,” she says.

The Bachelorette Season 15, Episode 7 Recap: Seriously, What Does Hannah See in Luke?

Caution: Spoilers for The Bachelorette ahead.

Last week, Hannah decided to give a rose to Luke—a man who whines, “I’m giving you the best I have!” while showing the worst side of himself—for reasons still unclear to the rest of Bachelor Nation. If her decision annoyed you, I have bad news: She does it again tonight. WHY, HANNAH? All season long you’ve told us that you’re looking for a partner who respects you and your decisions, and you have no problem calling out the dudes—even Luke—when they behave badly. So I need answers beyond Chris Harrison’s explanation that it’s because you have an “amazing bond” with him. Where is this bond, other than a makeout session in week one? Show me receipts.

But let’s back up. The group is now in Latvia, and Hannah hopes she can turn things around from last week’s debacle. “I want this week to remind me why I’m here,” she explains. What, a chance at mattress and clothing spon-con deals? No, “to find love and to be romanced by these men.” Ah, yes, of course.

Garrett gets the first one-on-one date of the week, and Luke claims this is the first time he’s “actually, legitimately” jealous. He says he knows for “a fact” that the other guys don’t feel the same way about Hannah as he does. Luke, I agree with you: No, the others don’t feel the same way about Hannah. That’s because, as far as I can tell, they don’t see her as a piece of property. (Guys, warning you now: Luke has me all fired up, so if you’re #TeamLP this recap may not be for you.)

Anyway, the date with Garrett is as awkward as Luke trying to explain his feelings: bungee jumping. While naked. Apparently this is a Latvian tradition, but an admittedly brief Google search makes me think this happened, like, one time in 2014.

Hannah reacts to this excursion exactly how I would: complaining about how cold she is. However, she says Old Hannah would let fear control her. New Hannah wants to live in the moment and do what “feels right,” and apparently that means bungee jumping over a ravine strapped to a hunky dude while a large black bar covers their bits and bobs. They survive—but Hannah’s bra, which the bungee jumping staff carelessly tosses into the river, does not. So rude! If Hannah’s anything like me, she had at least five more years of shelf life out of that thing.

Tyler Cameron Sees Himself ‘at the End’ With Bachelorette Hannah Brown

Tyler Cameron has quickly positioned himself as a fan favorite on The Bachelorette this season, and it’s obvious why. For one, have you looked at him? The man is so hot I shed a tear every time he smiles. (Kidding, but I’m close to it.)

Of course, Cameron has more than just good looks. He and Brown have a genuine connection—their very electric moments, even during a group date, are proof of that. Their first one-on-one was one of the best dates Brown has had this season, if not the best. But that’s probably not surprising to Cameron: He was confident from the start that the two of them would connect.

“From what I’ve seen, there’s a lot of things I really adore about her,” Tyler Cameron told Glamour before production on The Bachelorette got into full swing. “She’s a real-ass woman. She’s her. She doesn’t care. She’s unapologetically Hannah B.—and I love that. I adore that. So I think things like that will keep me very, very interested, and I’m excited.”

ABC/Mark Bourdillon

This confidence is one of the most attractive things about Cameron, though he says sometimes it can be misconstrued as arrogance. The way he combats this is by being as authentic as possible. “I’m real and I’m true, and you’re going to get that from me, and you’ll see that with me and Hannah,” he said prior to meeting Brown. “I’ve got nothing to hide and I’m excited to show who I am and show it to her, and I hope she loves it, so that’s the plan. “

Harry Styles and Troye Sivan Are Inspiring My Summer Manicure

Despite my very serious relationship, I’ve recently become a little boy crazy. In the same way I once collaged my walls with magazine cutouts of my celebrity crushes, I now save screenshots of paparazzi photos and post them on Twitter. While I used to be into brooding “bad boys” (think Robert Pattinson circa Twilight and Alex Turner of the Arctic Monkeys), I now favor musicians with flamboyant personal style and actors with a body type I would lovingly refer to as scrawny.

Because it’s 2019 and gender is dead (to me), my celeb crushes are no longer just eye candy, but they actually serve as style inspiration. (The one exception might be Timothée Chalamet—I wouldn’t be caught dead in his Golden Globes harness.) I can’t say that Harry Styles hasn’t crossed my mind while shopping for velvet pants, and Troye Sivan’s appearance in both Glossier Play and MAC’s Viva Glam campaigns instantly sold me on the products. I’m lucky enough that my real-life boyfriend works in fashion and we share each other’s clothes—and in my fantasies I have similar relationships with my internet crushes.

One thing I never saw coming, though, is that I’d be taking inspiration from men for my nails. All this changed when I was scrolling through Instagram a few weeks ago, saw a paparazzi photo of Harry Styles leaving the Gucci show, and literally gasped. He was wearing a perfectly tailored white suit and retro sunglasses, and his nails were painted in a mismatch of baby pink and mint green. Not only did I find myself incredibly attracted to him, I wanted to bring that photo to the nail salon ASAP.

The closer I looked, I realized Harry had worn a similar style to the Met Gala, except he swapped the pink for black. What makes both looks so cool is that the colors aren’t alternated or have a dedicated “accent nail”—instead it’s almost a color blocked situation, with half of each hand in each color.

Soon enough, I noticed Troye Sivan wearing similar styles. While he stuck to the same color palette, he went for just a pop of pink or would only paint a few nails in one color. I even noticed the boys running some popular fan Twitter accounts wearing the look. We already know mismatched nails are having a huge moment right now, but something about seeing it on my fave boys makes it feel incredibly fresh.

Even Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness, who also loves a mismatched nail, recently teamed up with Essie for pride, and says he’s always seen nail polish as a form of self-expression. Whether it’s to signify something deeper like showing pride for who you are (JVN and Troye are both openly gay), or just nail polish, I’m very here for it.

I guess I’ve always had a soft spot for men in nail polish (I used to paint my BF’s nails for him), probably due to the look’s connection to both emo and glam rock. But they’ve usually been limited to chipped black, so it’s cool to see men playing with color. It’s also refreshing to see men buck social standards and have a little more fun with their appearance. I’ll, for one, be rocking mismatched nails along with them. You’re next, Timothée.

Karlie Kloss Had a Second Wedding This Weekend, and the Photos Are Unreal

Karlie Kloss and Joshua Kushner tied the knot last October during an intimate ceremony in upstate to New York—but when you’re hot and famous, why limit yourself to just one wedding? Everyone who’s anyone is doing two or more these days. I’m kidding. It’s literally just rich people who do that, including, as it would have it, Kushner and Kloss. The duo hosted a second wedding celebration this weekend in Wyoming, and the photos they and their guests posted to social media are unreal.

This was a larger gathering than October. Several of the couple’s famous friends were in attendance, including Diane Von Furstenberg, Orlando Bloom, and Katy Perry. (No, Taylor Swift was not there, but don’t think there’s some kind of three-way feud going on. Swift’s “You Need to Calm Down” video squashed any and all bad blood.) The wedding theme was “Wild West,” which is perfect given the location, and the attendees really leaned in, wearing cowboy hats and boots and lots of denim. There was some big “yeehaw” energy for sure. Kacey Musgraves would be proud.

But before we get to those pics, check out this cute snap Karlie Kloss and Joshua Kushner took during the festivities.
