The fur industry has been a controversial one for a while now. While many women previously viewed fur as the pinnacle of aspirational luxury, more recent generations have started to question the use of fur in fashion (Stella McCartney founded an entire animal-friendly empire), examining whether the sacrifice is worth the ethical — and environmental — costs. That may be why we’re seeing more and more of our favorite brands declaring themselves fur-free.
The fashion crowd always seems to know how to put a new spin on old styles and at the NYFW Fall 2018 shows that was truer than ever. While many in the industry were waxing philosophical about whether fashion week was "dead," street style stars were breathing new life into the classic trench coat. Showgoer after showgoer was spotted in the outerwear staple in every fabrication from vinyl to boucle, and every hue from camel to candy pink.
Wearing a scarf seems pretty straightforward, as far as accessorizing goes: Put around neck, loop once or more, the end — right? Well, as it turns out, no. Your favorite fall and winter accessory, the blanket scarf, actually has a ton of versatility and several more styling options beyond just throwing it on mindlessly. Sure, this go-to piece keeps you warm and cozy during the cold-weather season, but it’s time to start looking at your scarf as an integral part of your overall outfit.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
