Why a statement jumper and slinky skirt is the perfect ageless fashion pairing for winter

Once, during my time as a fashion director, to illustrate a story idea to my editor, I transformed the summer outfit I was wearing – a tiered silk maxi skirt, white cotton T-shirt and simple sandals – into a ­winter ensemble. It was hardly a makeover of Wonder Woman proportions, I simply pulled on a roll-neck sweater, swapped sandals for suede knee boots and – ta-dah! – versatile, year-round style. You don’t need to be a fashion editor to master the art of outfit adaptability, but now more than ever we are making the most of the clothes we already own; juxtaposing different items, mixing up fabrics and textures to find cool combinations.

Inside The Rise & Fall Of The Man Repeller Aesthetic

Last week, it was announced that Man Repeller — the personal fashion blog-turned-lifestyle website started by Leandra Medine Cohen in 2010 — was shutting down as a result of “financial constraints.” This news had been preceded by Medine Cohen “stepping back” from the publication in June following criticism about the company’s lack of diversity and poor treatment of former POC employees. “Man Repeller was founded to celebrate self expression in all of its forms but it has become clear that I’ve failed to deliver on this mission,” Medine Cohen said then. “The team deserves a chance to show you what Man Repeller can be with me on the sidelines so I’m going to step back and let them show you.” Three months later, the site rebranded as Repeller and promised “many more changes to come.” Now, less than two months after that, the site has ceased publication altogether.
