Bomb Cyclone Be Damned! 4 Seriously Chic Ways To Layer This Winter

00-NEW-story-image (1)
There are cold, wintry days, and then there are days when you’re hit with a bomb cyclone, or the foot of snow and Arctic chill that ravaged the Northeast this week. In moments like these, fashion tends to take a back seat—no longer will your thin cashmere sweaters and slightly cropped jeans suffice! Or so you thought. In truth, there is an easy way to keep wearing your favorite pieces come snow, sleet, or even bomb cyclones: Instead of layering endlessly outward with puffer jackets and enormous knitwear, turn attention to your base layers. Simply swap your dainty intimates for thicker-grade items, and add a layer of wool, cashmere, or Uniqlo HeatTech between you and your favorite tee. Here, four next-level...

The ladies behind the new plus-size clothing line Premme share their tips.

With more than ten years of experience in the fashion world, plus a combined 672,000 followers on Instagram alone, it should come as no shock that plus-sized lifestyle consultants and bloggers Nicolette Mason and Gabi Gregg are finally giving the people what they want: a fashion line comprised entirely of pieces designed to fit bodies just like their own. Launching today, Premme is a collection for women who are A.) sizes 12 to 30 and B.) sick of watered-down (read: lame) plus-size clothing and C.) looking for something more fun and directional. "We didn't want to compromise on style," the duo told ELLE.com regarding the Premme ethos. "We wanted...

Can Fancy Athleisure Actually Make You Run Faster And Jump Higher?

landscape-1488396371-longform-lead
I never got the whole collision of fashion and fitness. Why this effort to look chic, when a strenuous workout turns my coarse hair into an eagle's nest and makes my face flush with rosacea like a checkerboard? Yet with the line between sportswear and streetwear increasingly blurred—not only at street-savvy brands like Vetements and Off-White, but also at legacy labels like Versace and Dior— I'm now realizing I was looking at the phenomenon back-to-front. Sure, of-the-moment trends that co-opt '80s workout gear—tailored sweat pants, full-body hoodies, even Reeboks—possess an obvious cool quotient. But the mash-up of athleisure and ready-to-wear signals a tidal shift for the rest of us, who actually crave comfort-and-efficiency benefits from our wardrobe. Just as male tech...

Man Repeller’s Leandra Medine on Personal Style and Originality

013117-InStyle-MAR2017-LMC-Leandra-Medine-1
There’s a quote attributed to Coco Chanel that often turns up on Facebook profiles: “In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” I’ve read it so many times that in spite of its underlying message—be original—it’s become, ironically, completely unoriginal. I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. We’re taught as kids to follow our heart and our gut, not what popular opinion recommends. Only when we’re truly one of a kind, we’re told, will we be destined for greatness.  But is this concept overrated? I’m tempted to think so. To be original, according to the wise oracle Google, is to be an eccentric, unusual person. Now, I’m often told that I have a very unconventional style. It’s a compliment, I...

5 Ways to Organize Your Closet to Dress Better

landscape-1481132001-gettyimages-114987992

1. Militant Kondo-ing is a fallacy
Worry less about kicking anything that doesn't elicit smiles and sunshine to the curb for Goodwill to pick up. People change. Their ideas of happiness change. And even that fugly green Lurex mock-neck must have once brought you joy—why else would you have bought it?—what's to say it can't again? The worst that can happen is that, in your tunnel-visioned overemphasis on letting go, you discard something you might one day remember fondly and regret not having. (Like a pair of beaded jeans Sandy Liang could have made. 😑) So along those lines, a controversial stance: Keep more. In other words, that's right—I SUPPORT LIGHT HOARDING.
