Mitchell has spent her past five months in quarantine with her partner Matte Babel and their new daughter Atlas, who was born last October.

She mastered the work-at-home look in a large furry blue coat and thigh high black boots. Mitchell posed on her kitchen counter sipping a glass of wine and holding a slice of pizza while she peered out from behind a pair of tinted-blue aviator sunglasses.

“Would you say this is an appropriate work from home look?” she captioned her Instagram photo. Her silver chandelier earrings with a monogrammed “M” glittered under the kitchen lights.

Fashion has certainly changed during the coronavirus pandemic. Heels and mini dresses are taking a back seat to comfortable slides and matching sweatsuits, which have been filling Instagram feeds and Pinterest pages since March. Instead of relying on runway shows and collection launches, we’re now looking solely to social media for inspiration, furthering the E-girl revolution that’s already underway.

E-girls (along with YouTubers like Emma Chamberlain and TikTok stars like Kourtney Kardashian’s newest BFF, Addison Rae) are girls and women who are very internet-savvy and very fashion-forward, often resurrecting retro styles and turning them into modern, sought-after trends.

If you take a look at Jennifer Lopez’s style over the years, it’s quite clear that she’s a chameleon, but she always stays true to her glamorous, high-fashion aesthetic. But while certainly high fashion (i.e. Valentino), the dress that J.Lo wore earlier this week to lunch with her family in New York City was a bit of a departure for her.

If 2020 has proven anything, it’s that no one is immune to the effect that the pandemic has had on our lives (and wardrobes). Like the rest of us, even J.Lo has seemed to embrace comfort above all else when it comes to her wardrobe over the past several months, which was evident in the sweet embroidered, oversized dress she wore to lunch this week.

Oversized babydoll dresses are one of the season’s biggest trends, partly because you can wear them at home as a house dress and

6 Models on Ableism, Visibility, and Personal Style

Fashion has always been based on labels: which labels are the trendiest at the moment, which ones are worth buying, and which ones are being worn by celebrities. But these labels aren’t just sewn into the hem of our newest slip skirt. Labels, on a deeper level, are what have also contributed to the homogeneity of the fashion industry. You see, these visual signifiers or societal labels determine who the industry deems valuable, and as a result, anti-blackness, fatphobiatransphobia, and other prejudices permeate every aspect of the industry. And while the industry is taking strides toward inclusive sizing and hiring more POC, ableism is still very much an issue that needs to be addressed. 

Ableism is defined as when able-bodied individuals are viewed as “normal” or superior to those with a disability. This manifests in various forms of discrimination, from who gets hired for
