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.

Bye Chelsea boots, hello sweatpants: Fall fashion shifts in quarantine

Similarly, Michael Ricketts, a junior studying advertising and public relations, believes the practicality of fall fashion best fits his personal style profile. 

“My style of clothing is very sleek and slim fitting, but it’s functional,” Ricketts said. “In the fall, I can wear my scarves, pea coats and Chelsea boots and it’s stylish, but functional.”

He said he enjoys dressing in layers and exploring various ways to piece them together. The challenge that Ricketts currently faces, with more outfits than public appearances, is how to navigate isolation in style. 

“I’m trying to figure out how to incorporate my scarves, my signature item, into this year’s wardrobe, because I’m not going out as much,” Ricketts said. 

Nguyen said she also finds it difficult to find the balance between showing off her fall favorites and staying COVID-19 free. Her antidote to this problem is to make the most out of her occasional

This Easy-to-Style Fall Vest Is Fuzzy on the Inside Too

Us Weekly has affiliate partnerships so we may receive compensation for some links to products and services.

We all know what fall means, fashion-wise. We’re pulling out our cardigans, shopping new pullover hoodies, starting to take our thicker scarves out of the closet and swapping our flip flips on the shoe rack for our boots. It’s kind of exciting seeing it all come together. We went so long without these cute, bundled-up outfits!

We want to add a little something extra this year though — something that will have compliments heading our way once again. Something that not everyone owns. We’re not forgetting our first priority though. It obviously has to be warm and comfy too for when that autumn chill suddenly frosts our windows and leaves us seeing our breath. Know what fits the bill perfectly? This cozy vest!
