Start off in the right direction this month with our BAZAAR barometer

From the best page on Instagram you should add to your follow list, to the latest (and weirdest) yoga class you've ever heard of, BAZAAR's monthly compass rounds up what's hot and what's not for the month ahead... 

HEADING NORTH

[1]

Do Worry, Be Happy

We’re already obsessed with Elizabeth Day’s How To Fail podcast, and now we’ve been told that our other pal anxiety could actually be good for us, enhancing motivation, alertness and performance. Wonders will never cease.

[2]

Change-makers

Bravo to Gucci, who took a huge gaffe (balaclava-gate) and found its silver lining; launching a programme and scholarship fund aiming to “create more opportunities for talented young people from diverse backgrounds” and putting a woman at the head of it.

D3 times a charm

Facilitié at the Dubai Design District, D3

Bringing together niche cool kids like Okhtein, Poppy Lissman and Susan Alexandra, the clever folk at Faux are running the edgiest accessories pop-up you ever did see at Facilitié in d3 until the end of the month. Here - just take our money.

Double Tap

Look no further for your insatiable ‘90s fashspo than @ladydirevengelooks - a delightful chronicling of all Princess Diana’s sassiest post-Charles ensembles. A retro dream.

[5]

Buy today, sell tomorrow

With consignment store The Luxury Closet popping up both The Dubai Mall and Marina Mall, and brands like Rebecca Taylor and even Bloomingdale’s in the US launching subscription rental boxes, we predict far more mindful shopping of this ilk.

GOING SOUTH

[1]

Netflix’n’panic

Apple, Disney and HBO are launching their own streaming services in the next few months. Friends has already been plied from Netflix’s little mitts. We’re sure it’s not the end for the O.G of on-demand, but we can’t help but feel for them.

[2]

What The Jeck

While we love a neologism, this one - tech neck’s evil cousin - has petrified us with its accuracy. Jaw, meet neck. Time to start facial yoga, we think. Failing that, ultherapy will do.

[3]

Bye to K-beauty

We’re certainly not sorry to see the back of a punishing 10-step skincare routine (skip-care was always more our speed). Welcome G-beauty instead; simple, straightforward, German.

[4]

Traffic-light yoga

Yoga or art installation - you decide. An upcoming trend for doing your vinyasa flow inside a room where the lights go from green to yellow to ‘breakdown-at-the-nuclear-plant red’ as one Guardian journal put it.

[5]

Eco-hypocrites

Lambast people for using plastic straws but drive a gas-guzzling 4x4. We see you.
