Editorial – Elite Daily /
Part-time
Elite Daily is seeking a remote, part-time writer to cover fashion- and beauty-specific service, experiments, trend reports, and more for its Style vertical. Candidates must have availability to work two to three days per week during business hours.

When it comes to style and beauty, Elite Daily readers are experimental shoppers and consumers eager to uncover all there is to know about the trends of the moment, so interested applicants should be, too. We're looking for writers who are willing to quickly and thoroughly cover fashion and beauty service topics; in-depth, seasonal trend reports; robust fashion and beauty market stories; and expert-driven fashion and beauty interviews. Writers should also be eager to test out the latest, greatest, and sometimes totally absurd products and write up contextual product reviews with original photos. The ideal candidate should be an experienced writer with a clear voice who is up to date on the hottest fashion-and-beauty topics. Bonus points if you follow celebrities’ every fashion and beauty move on social media, and if you’re not only one to know, but already own, the next viral product of the season.

Candidates should have ready-to-share, published writing clips (personal blogs count!) and experience working in a fast-paced, digital environment. In your cover letter, please tell us your favorite fashion and beauty topics to cover, as well as your favorite sources for fashion and beauty news and service information. Interested applicants should be  writers who approach style from a body-positive, confident, unique, diverse, and inclusive point of view.

This is a remote, part-time position.
