There’s no skirting the issue: Menswear is beginning to look a lot more like womenswear.Skirts and hot pants, also known as short shorts, are all the rage according to trendsetting disrupters like Thom Browne and Dior Homme. For their spring 2018 menswear collections, the two fashion labels presented male models baring their gams in crisp kilt-style skirts with high socks and Michael Kors Outlet Clearance thigh-hugging, barely-there shorts, respectively.Hot off the tails of the Devon prep-school protest, the skirt appears to be not only a fashion statement, but a social one, too.“I like the idea that when you are a baby you wear pretty much the same clothing as your brothers Coach Outlet and sisters. And I think that culture dictates which way and what kind of clothing you wear — but it is nice that you can pretty much do whatever you want,” Thom Browne said in a statement to Vogue.Old-school gender rules just aren’t cutting it for Coach Outlet Store Online the young and style-savvy anymore.

The unexpected collaboration (dubbed “Collide Michael Kors Outlet — Greg Lauren & Moncler”) represents his artisanal take on luxury Alpine activewear.“I love taking the fabric from a piece and using it in a completely different and unexpected way,” the 47-year-old tastemaker tells Alexa. “Mixing the classic and the elegantly destroyed, the old and the Coach Purses new, the perfect with the imperfect … this excited me.”Fashion scion Lauren (his uncle is the legendary designer Ralph Lauren and his father, Jerry, has been Ralph’s creative director for men’s design for almost 45 years) has always been a fan of textiles with age and Michael Kors personality, integrating them into his own eponymous men’s and women’s lines.“My favorite approach to my own collection is to begin with something iconic, something classic and known by everyone at first sight, and to deconstruct it and rebuild,” notes the former actor, who appeared in “Boogie Michael Kors Factory Store Nights” and “The Wedding Planner” and is married to actress Elizabeth Berkley. “I grew up collecting and wearing vintage clothing, and I’ve always been curious about our universal obsession with it, especially military and work clothing.”Greg Lauren mixes up Moncler looks for a cool new capsule Longchamp Outlet Lauren created 36 styles for men and women in his Moncler capsule, including a black down coat merged with an olive field jacket, and a red hoodie finished with a frayed-jean cuff and trim.

If Michael Kors Bags the company that owns Ugg boots doesn’t step into line, its board could get kicked to the curb.Activist investment fund Marcato Capital, which has been prodding Ugg’s struggling parent Deckers Outdoors to sell itself, threatened to wage a proxy battle to replace all of its board Michael Kors Handbags directors if they don’t act soon.Although Deckers began a strategic review in April, Marcato boss Mick McGuire griped in a Tuesday letter that its board showed a “lack of transparency” in the proceedings.Ugg boots, whose sheepskin styles account for 80 percent of Deckers’ sales, have wavered Michael Kors Outlet Online Sale in popularity in recent years since exploding on the scene in the early aughts. The brand tried to raise prices in 2012 amid a sheepskin supply crunch but shoppers balked.Facing a supply glut last year, the brand started selling its boots at Macy’s, downmarket from Ugg’s coach handbags usual retailers such as Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus.Following the slip-ups of Deckers’ premier boot brand, Marcato Capital amassed a 6 percent stake in Deckers in February, pushing it to pursue a sale.McGuire bemoaned Deckers’ “history of underperformance” that he said was brought on by “wasteful capital Michael Kors Outlet Online allocation,” heavy corporate spending and a “failed retail expansion strategy.”The hedge fund previously offered to settle for “limited representation” on the board to help with the sales process the company announced in April, but that offer so far has been refused.“While we typically seek to work Coach Bags constructively with boards to implement change, we view this situation differently,” McGuire wrote.Shares of Deckers, which are up 48 percent since Marcato initiated its stake in February, popped 1.2 percent to $67.72 Tuesday.“We appreciate the views of our stockholders,” Deckers said in a statement. “As previously coach purses announced on April 25, 2017, our board of directors is reviewing a broad range of strategic alternatives to enhance stockholder value.”McGuire’s bravado comes less than a month after he won three board seats at Buffalo Wild Wings and forced the exit of longtime CEO Sally Smith.<br Coach Outlet Store />Actress, comedian, jazz singer and “professional lesbian” Lea DeLaria doesn’t care if you call her “Sir.” “Obviously, it’s a look I’m going for,” she joked in her previous live show, “The Last Butch Standing.” As for her pronoun of choice, the 59-year-old — who plays Big coach outlet Boo on “Orange Is the New Black,” voices Miss Fritter in “Cars 3” and guest-stars on Season 4 of “Broad City” — prefers “Empress.” Now prepping for upcoming concerts, the Bushwick-based LGBT activist shares with Alexa the items — from suits to screwdrivers — that rock Michael Kors Outlet Online Sale her world.
Wearing what you want is a privilege, not a right — and lately, people have been abusing it.Last week, guards barred a reporter from entering the Speaker’s Lobby, a room outside the House of Representatives chamber where reporters grab short interviews with politicians. She Michael Kors Bags wasn’t armed or anything — just bare-armed. Sleeveless dresses are against the Speaker’s Lobby dress code.The incident caused a firestorm, with news outlets hysterically comparing the House’s so-called “sexist” rules to those of the Coach Outlet Store Online dystopian TV series “The Handmaid’s Tale.”The outcry is beyond ridiculous — and misguided. Congressional rules are far from draconian. The Speaker’s Lobby is the only room on Capitol Hill that requires reporters to suit up so formally. As for the sexism claim, men are held to a high sartorial standard there, too: They’re required to wear jackets and ties, which are arguably more stifling than dresses with sleeves.Plus, who knows if Congress Longchamp Bag would have bothered enforcing this rule if reporters stuck to professional sheath dresses (as Michelle Obama routinely did)? Instead, journalists have been waltzing into the Speaker’s Lobby wearing breezy summer dresses and Birkenstocks — not exactly proper business attire. Can you really blame the House for Coach Outlet Stores trying to uphold a sense of decorum?This Congress kerfuffle is just the latest case of people refusing to dress with a modicum of respect for their surroundings. Back in March, United Airlines got flak for stopping two teens wearing stretch pants from boarding a flight. Dubbed Michael Kors Handbags “Leggings-gate,” the airline was derided for sexism — despite the fact that the two ejected passengers were flying for free on an employee’s family pass, which entails a strict dress code for both men and women.Then, in April, the posh department store Harvey Nichols incited similar Longchamp ire for its “snooty” attitude toward author Joanne Harris, who tried to shop there in a hoodie. But in the end it was Harris who came across as a snob — would she have deigned to change out of her gym clothes for a meeting with Coach Outlet Online a publisher or lunch with a friend? Why should a retail employee at a fancy shop be afforded any less respect?And that’s the heart of the issue: respect.Dressing like a slob is the height of entitlement. It’s an arrogant power move employed by Silicon Valley whiz Coach Factory kids like Mark Zuckerberg in an effort to intimidate men and women in suits.Flouting a dress code says: “I’m too important to adhere to the rules and dress like everybody else, and you are not worth the few seconds it would take me to put on Michael Kors Sale a shirt with buttons” — or, in the House’s case, throw a cardigan on over a sleeveless blouse.These types of dress codes aren’t “Handmaid’s Tale”-like sumptuary laws, which use dress as a way of signifying class and power. These workplace uniforms not only establish the sense Coach Factory Store of formality and respect that workplace environments should have — they also level the playing field, if only superficially. In theory, no one is exempt from having to wear a jacket or sleeves. Not even the president!If politicians have to sweat it out all day in coach factory sleeves and closed-toed shoes, it doesn’t seem too much to ask female reporters to carry a cardigan and a pair of ballet flats in their bag for when they have to enter the Speaker’s Lobby. It’s probably the easiest thing their job requires of them.
