Straight Man Complaint: High Waisted Shorts

I may be known to boast a high waisted short from time to time, and regularly advise you to do the same. And we know why we wear them – when done correctly, they can be quite the flatterer to a figure. But last night, as I wore a pair of long man’s shorts done up high at the waist, belted for definition, I discovered, and this may come as a shock to all but The Man Repeller: Straight men don’t like them.

High waisted shorts are sadly wasted on the straight man.

Summer Layering

Now that it’s basically summer — the proliferation of mandals, screaming children on the subway, my overworked sweat glands and the eggs frying on the sidewalk attest to that, though I’m truly not complaining — you may be lamenting the loss of layering –  after all, with 98° weather, the fewer the clothes the better. But the tank and booty short routine can get real old real fast. So before you lock those cardigans away in storage forever i.e. the next three months, consider these few tips on layering for summer.

The Best Breathable Fabrics for Cool & Carefree Summer Frolicking

Summer in the city can be both a blessing and a curse, especially if you don’t have a beach house to getaway every now and then.

MUSE OF THE WORLD: Hilary Alexander Trades in Fashion for Cats, Anna Gets the Boot and $10 Mil a Week in Sales Can’t Save AA

- Everyone’s favorite banged and bespectacled lady fashion writer and recent CFDA Award honoree Hilary Alexander will retire as fashion director for The Daily Telegraph at the end of June, leaving a hole in my enlarged heart. However, she urges us not to be sad: “I love fashion.I’ll still write occasionally for the DT. I can have a cat,study archaeology +write books!Fashion lives” Fashion lives, but space between words is dying a slow death via Twitter. [Fashionologie]

- The sight of Anna Wintour in Easy Breezy Tennis Casual was at first jarring. Then my mind was officially blown when I learned that she was in $158 J. Brand boot-cut jeans. Not because they were $158 J. Brand jeans, but a boot cut! I recently dug up a pair of flairs that I may or may not have stolen from a fifteen-year-old girl and of course proclaimed that the boot-cut was back. Anna Wintour is totes copying me, you guys.

Does Anyone Have $550 (plus tax) I Can Borrow?

Does Anyone Have $550 (plus tax) I Can Borrow?

Because I’m kind of obsessed with Proenza Schouler’s J Brand jeans. They’re more expensive than my monthly rent (one and presumably the only good thing about the Bronx), but I could be homeless for these. They’re hand-painted, not that makes a world of difference to me, but it would be a nice incentive to have when pleading for change on the subway.
