👗 Trying on clothes is the worst—and a new study from Bustle confirms it. 70% of millennial women say that clothing sizes are wildly inconsistent, which makes online shopping basically impossible. Related: 30% of women find that the clothes they buy online don’t fit. However, thanks to the pain of shipping, 50% still keep pieces that don't work. And the most important issue? The glaring lack of inclusivity. 68% of Americans wear a size 14 or above, so it’s about time the industry recognizes that. At least a few brands are taking note...
💸 In case you need more incentive to *not* go shopping this weekend, here it is: Millennials have an average of $42,000 in debt each, with student debt making up 16%. Meanwhile, Gen Z has an average debt of $4,343—and credit card overspending is mostly to blame (even though, as one headline unhelpfully points out, they can't even legally drink yet). The study also reports that, unsurprisingly, half surveyed had less than $250 saved. "Debt culture" is still too real.
🗞️ Earlier this week, we mentioned that 70 news organizations were joining forces to defend themselves against Trump’s claim that the media is “the enemy of the American people." That number quickly spiked to 350 orgs—and they all published editorials in the last 24 hours championing the freedom of the press and slamming the president’s anti-media rhetoric. Trump, predictably, didn’t appreciate the effort, proclaiming that newspapers are “in collusion” against him. OK, suuure.
🎬 Asian representation is seriously lacking onscreen, which is why Crazy Rich Asians is *so* important. Based on Kevin Kwan’s bestselling book, it’s the first big-budget movie with a mostly Asian-American cast in 25 years (since 1993's Joy Luck Club). But that’s not the only flick you should see this weekend. Another Asian-led rom-com, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, premieres tonight on Netflix. Get excited—and get the scoop straight from author Jenny Han below.
