  • How To Make Gingham Work For Fall

    As we head into fall, we’re apprehensive to give up some of those favorites that we’ve practically lived in all summer long. And, while it might be necessary to trade those slide sandals for winter boots (eventually…), layer on the jackets and ditch the swimsuits we spent the past three months wearing as actual tops, we will soon remember how much we love the fashion of autumn.  That said, there’s one summertime trend that we will definitely not be packing up with the others, and it comes by way of gingham. Though it might very well be a warm-weather staple, it’s a fall style essential as well-and we couldn’t be more thrilled. For a little bit of inspiration, we’ve amassed quite the collection of gingham-infused looks that we can’t wait to try for fall. This season, we’re wearing our gingham statement tops with vintage jeans and denim skirts alike, opting for one-and-done jumpsuits topped with edgy leather jackets, and investing in a few go-to mini dresses that will take us through morning, noon and night. For all that and more, check out exactly how we’re going to keep wearing gingham long into autumn weather.

  • Kofi Annan struggled to escape the curse of history

    Kofi Annan, the former United Nations Secretary-General and Nobel Peace Prize laureate who died on Saturday, will be remembered as a dedicated humanitarian whose career was tarnished by ugly conflicts that spun out of control. Annan was unable to bring peace to Syria and bring to rest the failures of diplomacy in Rwanda, Bosnia, Darfur, Cyprus, Somalia and Iraq, which are likely to drown out the plaudits for his softly spoken mediation and efforts to eradicate poverty and AIDS that won him the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize. "He's driven by the idea of 'don't think no', always looking for the best outcome," Fred Eckhard, Annan's spokesman during his time as secretary-general, once told Reuters.
