NYT Strands Today: Hints, Spangram & Answers for June 26

Looking at the theme, I instantly knew that I had to look for pretty and designer things in the grid of letters today. I knew I was on the money when I found the words POSH and CHIC on the left side of the grid. Then, after finding some random words, I chanced upon SNAZZY on the bottom right.

This made it clear to me that the Spangram would either run left to right or vice versa. Now, I found FASHION next, but it wasn’t a theme word or the Spangram. So, I looked some more and decided to use one of my hints. It highlighted SWANK, giving me a better idea of the theme. This was followed by DAPPER and DRIPPY in quick succession, along with today’s Spangram – FASHIONISTA. Then, I called it a day and solved today’s puzzle by connecting SPIFFY.
