Must List

Check out the new issue of Girls' Life starring Mackenzie Ziegler

Our April/May issue starts hitting mailboxes and newsstands on March 20! Here's a peek at what you'll find inside...

EXCLUSIVE! In our conversation, the dancer, singer, actress and now author (!!!) Mackenzie Ziegler tells us what it was really like being on Dance Moms, her best mems with bestie and sis Maddie and how she and BGF Johnny Orlando *really* met.


Game. Set. Match.
Ace spring’s luxe athleisure trend by serving up crop tops, sleek pants and plenty of sporty shorts. Yep, you're ready to hold court.

Jacket game strong
Cast aside those sad sweaters. This spring, it's jackets required. From florals to gingham, we've got a week's worth for you.

Jump to it
Also on deck? Jumpsuits. They're super stylish, as comfy as PJs, but...can seem tricky to pull off. Here's how to rock a united front like Shay, Rowan and Dove.

Eyes on the prize
Throw some shade in these stunning sunnies. Our faves are under $20—because sometimes a girl needs a pair and a spare...or one for her sis/bestie.

Pretty peepers
Twin vloggers Brooklyn and Bailey McKnight leap from YouTube to the beauty biz. They're sharing how makeup mortals can land looong lashes (and way more).

Watch. Listen. Read. Love.
Paris Berelc starring with boyf Jack Griffo in Alexa & Katie is PM #relationshipgoals. Mason Cook dishes on a disastrous (aka *relatable*) first date. Plus, everything we love about Love, Simon and the four TV moms (hi, Joyce Byers!) we wish we could call our own. 

Let's keep it short and sweet...
Andi Mack star Peyton Elizabeth Lee stuns in a fresh pixie. Plus, she shares tricks to make your tresses shine (think: plenty of putty and piles of jewels)—no matter your length.

All the inspo: A Wrinkle In Time
The fierce femmes of A Wrinkle In Time are giving us goosebumps for all things sparkly and crystal-covered. Suddenly, serious shimmer just seems so chic.

Spring clean your love life
Sometimes you need to take a Swiffer to your heart. We reveal how (and why) to toss old crushes to the curb.

What your mom *isn't* telling you
You two share a shoe size, hair color and all the LOLs, obvs—but there are a few things she's not dishing out. We've got the scoop.

QUIZ! Can you crack the crush code?
Ever feel like your bae is speaking in semaphore? Take this quiz to see if you get what he's *actually* saying, or if you're better off moving on before you spend another second inspecting his Insta.

Way wired
Before you crack that energy drink or toss back yet another grande latte, here's everything you need to know about the bevvies that claim to power you up.

It's a sweet world...
How kawaii-obsessed baking YouTuber—and full-time Stanford student!—Rachel Fong uses her cute confections to do good.

Staycation > vacation
No, you can't turn your backyard into a real beach. But it's still possible to have a blast without leaving your hometown. Send us a postcard, OK?
