For Billie Eilish, and Many Others, Power Dressing Means Wearing Baggy Clothes

Donato Sardella/Getty

Billie Eilish’s new Calvin Klein campaign begins with a familiar scene: a teenager spending too much time getting ready in the bathroom.

But instead of hearing the sounds of a disgruntled younger sister banging at the door to get in, those who watch the 30-second spot are treated to a voiceover confessional from the 17-year-old pop dynamo.

“I never want the world to know everything about me,” Eilish drawls. “That’s why I wear big, baggy clothes. Nobody can have an opinion because they haven’t seen what’s underneath, you know? No one can say ‘She’s slim thick, she’s not slim thick. She’s got a flat ass, she’s got a fat ass.’ No one can say any of that because they don’t know.”

Wearing Leggings As Pants: Yay or Nay

It’s 2019 and leggings have become a classic, like skinny jeans. Black leggings are THE bottom on women at the airport, and I see woman across all ages wear them as workout wear and casual wear. They are ubiquitous, worn as leggings under dresses and tunics, as jeans or pants with all sorts of tops, and creatively layered under shorts, skirts, dungarees and culottes.

Leggings were big in the ‘80s. They disappeared for a couple of decades and resurfaced in the mid noughties. They returned more as pantyhose than yoga pants. The idea was to wear them as an accessory under butt and thigh-covering clothing because they were constructed more like hosiery than pants, with a gusset and often transparent.

Over the years, leggings have evolved to become substantial, thick and opaque. These days, thanks to the oh-so-popular Athleisure trend, wearing thick leggings as pants is a 100% acceptable look. It’s not a faux pas to wear thick leggings with just about any length of top. From crop tops, sweatshirts, blouses, tees and hip-length tops, to butt-and-crotch covering tunics and midi dresses.

My eye has adjusted to thick leggings worn with shorter tops. It’s not a look that I wear, but I’m a solid yay for others as long as the leggings are thick. The more modest version is to wear thick leggings with tunics and dresses, and I’m a yay for that too. Or you can wear see-through leggings as hosiery under another bottom like a skirt, midi dress, shorts or culottes.

Apart from for hot yoga, I do not wear leggings. Athleisure is not my thing and I don’t like the feel of thick leggings. I don’t wear them under dresses, but do wear pants like skinny jeans and cropped flares under dresses. I also wear hosiery style leggings under skirts and longer dresses because I enjoy wearing pantyhose.

Tiny Harris Criticizes Reginae Carter’s Outfit – Find Out Tiny’s Problem With What Toya Wright’s Daughter Is Wearing

Toya Wright’s daughter, Reginae Carter posted some new pics in which she’s flaunting her curvy figure in a pink outfit.

As expected, her diehard fans praised both the outfit and Nae’s curves, but Tiny Harris jumped in the comments to say something.

Now, whoever knows Tiny knows that she is referring to the fact that Nae is wearing a Gucci bag and everyone knows by now that the Harris family are boycotting the brand following the blackface scandal.

Tip was the first in the family to slam the brand and tell everyone that they should boycott it.

Some of Nae’s followers agreed with Tiny.

‘Treat me like an option, and I’ll show you how many I got 😏 Bodysuit from @letsvoguegirls’ Reginae captioned the photo.

Someone said ‘@majorgirl 🤣🤣🤣 Nae smiling like omg auntie I almost got away with it 😭😭😭 it’s sooo cute tho. @colormenae 👑 that bitch is fire tho 💥💥💥 sorry @majorgirl NO SERIOUSLY FU** GUCCI 💯 damn nae. 😂😂😂😂😂

Another follower told Nae to ‘Stop supporting Gucci,’ while someone else agreed: ‘Gucci still canceled sis @colormenae. 🙄🙄🙄

One fan told Nae ‘SHOW GUCCI YOU GOT MORE OPTIONS…HE TREATED US LIKE WE A OPTION!’

Nae recently made fans sad with one of the photos that she shared.

She posted a photo with Rudy Johnson, Toya Wright’s late brother on her social media account.

You may recall that both he and Toya’s other brother Josh Johnson got killed a few years ago and the family suffered a tremendous loss. All of them are missing the two young men.

“They spent Christmas together and she thought things were going well between them.

“Her career is going from strength to strength and lives her life in the spotlight but he told her he wanted to lead a more private life.”

Wearing High-Rise Bottoms When You’re Short Waisted

The waist measurement we’re talking about is the length of your upper torso, not the circumference of the narrowest part of your midsection. It’s a vertical measurement, and not a horizontal one. It’s what we’re referring to when we talk about being short, regular or long-waisted.

Here’s a simple definition of rise and waist measurements:

  • Rise is the distance from your crotch point to your natural waist
  • Waist is the distance from your shoulder neck intersection to your natural waist

It’s easy to figure out if you’re short or long in the waist. Stand up straight (don’t sit!) and see if you can fit two hand widths between the under bust and the natural waist. If you can fit more than two hand widths, you have a long waist. Less than two is a short waist.

People who are short in the waist tend to prefer wearing mid and low rise bottoms with tucked, semi-tucked or untucked tops because it visually lengthens the upper torso, and feels more comfortable on the midsection. In other words, the waistband of the bottoms is far enough away from their bra strap. They tend to avoid exposing the waistline of high-rise bottoms because it visually shortens an already short waist.

While this is true, it’s not so black and white. You might be short in the waist, but regular or long in rise measurement. When that’s the case, wearing exposed high-rise bottoms — with a tucked, semi-tucked or cropped top — will look relatively in proportion with a short waist, especially with a smaller bust. If you’re larger in the bust, longer in the rise, and short in the waist, you can wear exposed high rises without looking too short-waisted if you add a top that has lower neckline like a V-neck or scoop neck into the mix. The lower and open neckline will lengthen the neck and upper torso thereby offsetting a short waist.

Wearing exposed high-rise pants or jeans when you’re short in the rise AND waist, AND have a larger bust is the trickiest because you’ll feel square and squat unless you’re very tall. It’s easiest to stick to mid rises, lower necklines, and wearing tops untucked with this body type, especially when you’re petite. That said, a mid-rise can be your high rise, and exposing it the same way you would high-rise jeans and pants can work when you wear a semi-tucked fluid top with a lower neckline.

Of course, none of these visual proportions matter if you wear high-rise pants and jeans with an untucked regular top because you’re covering the length of the waist, rise and torso. Many of my short-waisted clients — some with short rises — are enjoying the high-rise bottoms trend because it girdles the midsection, and they can wear untucked tops if they want to.

It sounds complicated, but it’s a simple visual illusion that can be manipulated to your advantage if you want to wear exposed high-rise bottoms with a shorter waist. Feel free to ask questions in the comments section if you’re unsure.

Wearing French Cuffs on Shirts: How, When, & Why

Before we get into the specifics of French cuffs, let’s do a brief overview of shirt cuff styles.

Shirt Cuff Styles

Barrel Cuffs

First, button cuffs also called barrel cuffs. They’ve got buttonholes on one side of the cuff and buttons on the other. Anywhere from 1 to 3 buttons or sometimes more. Although one to two buttons is standard just so the fit of the cuff can be adjusted.

Barrel cuffs are the everyday choice for most men. And with a variety of button styles and cuff shapes they provide some versatile options while still being practical.

Link Cuffs

Link cuffs have holes on both sides of the cuff and as you might imagine are meant to be closed with links as opposed to buttons.

Two Principal Types Of Link Cuffs

Single Cuffs

Single cuffs which are just one layer of fabric fastened together with a link are standard for the white tie dress code and are also acceptable for black-tie if not necessarily standard at this point in time.

Double Cuffs

Double cuffs, are twice as long and are worn folded back upon themselves. They’re the standard choice these days for the Black Tie dress code and are also a staple of business wear. If you haven’t guessed it yet, double cuffs are more commonly known as French cuffs.

Other Kinds Of Cuffs

There are also a few other kinds of cuffs such as convertible cuffs which can be closed with either a button or a link depending on how you’d like to wear them.

And finally, you may also sometimes see a buttoned cuff that has excess fabric that can be turned back upon itself. This is known as a turn back cuff, cocktail cuff or sometimes a James Bond cuff.

French Cuffs Construction

As we already mentioned, French cuffs feature a length of fabric that is folded back upon itself and then fastened together with cufflinks, There are holes on both sides of the cuff going through all the layers of fabric. In other words, most French cuffs will typically have four holes in total to a cuff. Some manufacturers however will include more holes on the inner portion of the cuff for a total of six. This was originally done so that if there was wear or staining on the edge of a cuff a man could adjust it in the middle of the day without having to worry about looking at that staining.

One such manufacturer to offer these six holed French cuffs is the British retailer Charles Tyrwhitt. As I’m a frequent wearer of their shirts and many of them are in my closet I’ll use these adjustable cuffs on jackets that I have where the sleeves aren’t quite as long. That way the cuffs won’t come out from beneath the sleeves of the jacket when I’m moving my arms around. Some shirt makers may also include a button on the inside of the French cuff to make things more secure and to make inserting links a little bit easier. This button on the inside of the cuff isn’t to be confused however with a gauntlet button which is featured on some shirts a little bit further up the sleeve.

French cuffs can come in a number of shapes as can other cuff styles. Straight edges are most common for French cuffs but you’ll also see rounded edges, angled edges or mitered edges.

Why Are They Called French Cuffs?

To answer that question, we have to touch on the history of the double cuff. Since at least the 16th century, upper-class individuals used elegant ribbons to prevent the ruffled ends of their shirt sleeves from coming open. This practice of adorning the wrists with some sort of decoration continued throughout the centuries. By the early 19th century, when the modern style of shirt was coming into its own, the ruffles had been replaced with cuffs that were secured with links.

Napoleon Bonaparte

As an example, Alexandre Dumas 1844 novel, The Count of Monte Cristo, features the character of Baron Danglars, a banker who wears ornate cufflinks with his double cuffed shirts. One apocryphal story also claims that French cuffs got their start when Napoleon ordered extra long sleeves for the shirts of the soldiers in his armies so that they could wipe their noses on the ends of their sleeve and then fold their cuffs back. There isn’t any historical evidence to support this theory however so it’s really just more of a fun story.

Whatever the case, the term French cuff didn’t really come into popular usage until the style immigrated to America. In other words, it may just be that calling it a French cuff made it sound a little bit more exotic and special to American consumers. And from then on the term stuck and it’s the one that’s most commonly used today.

Style Guidelines For Wearing French Cuffs

The traditional view on this subject is that French cuffs should really only be worn in more formal scenarios, such as if you’re wearing black tie or if you’re wearing a conventional business suit and necktie. Some will even argue that wearing French cuffs with a blazer or sport coat is a stretch.

However, as standards of everyday dress have become more relaxed over the last half century and within the last 10 to 15 years, we’ve seen a resurgence in the interest in menswear. Some of these old style rules are able to be more freely bent now. So even though some traditionalists might give you a little bit of a questioning look, we believe that you can definitely pull off French cuffed shirts in more casual environments than just black tie or white collar business suits.

Sven Raphael Schneider wearing French Cuffs with Fort Belvedere accessories

As just a few examples of this, fashion designer Tom Ford has worn French cuffs without a tie for a number of years now. And here at the Gentleman’s Gazette, our founder Sven Raphael Schneider, estimates that he wears French cuffed shirts around 75% of the time. Also, I personally am a big fan of smart casual styled French cuffed shirts and almost all of my everyday shirts have French cuffs.

Typical ensemble for Preston Schlueter

I believe that wearing them with some fun cufflinks to provide a breezy vibe is a great way to show off a little bit of personal expression without being overpowering. In fact, a typical everyday ensemble for me is a French cuff shirt worn without anything over the top of it in addition to a pair of slacks and shoes and so on.

If you wanted to really go to the nth degree with this you could even emulate Italians who go for the sprezzatura style of dressing. They’ll wear French cuffed shirts unfastened over the ends of their jacket sleeves. This is a little bit of an extreme look of course but we just wanted to make you aware that the look is out there, so French cuffs are definitely more versatile than they used to be.

Tips On Wearing French Cuffs

First of all, it’s always a good idea to show at least a little bit of cuff at the end of whatever you’re wearing. Be that a suit jacket, a blazer, a sport coat or even a sweater. You could shoot for keeping a quarter to a half inch of shirt sleeve visible at all times under these types of garments just to make sure that people know that you intentionally wore French cuffs. Keep in mind though, that if you’re wearing something with more constricted sleeves such as a sweater you may want to orient the cuffs a little bit differently.

Kissing Style

Where French cuffs are usually worn in the so-called kissing style with the inside portions of both sides of the cuff together, they can also be configured more similarly to a barrel style and this is a convenient way to do it if you’re wearing something like a sweater. And of course, there are a wide variety of different kinds of cufflinks to go with your French cuff shirts to suit the occasion. You should aim for a balance between your own sense of personal style and the formality of the environment you’ll be in. There are all kinds of metal cufflinks of course, in materials like gold, silver, platinum and so on. And at the other end of the spectrum there are simple fabric knot styles of cufflinks also called silk knots that are definitely more casual.

CONCLUSION

To answer the question of when it’s appropriate to wear French cuff shirts? The short and simple answer is almost whenever you want with a few key exceptions. As we said, just make sure that the French cuffs and their accompanying cufflinks don’t overpower or dominate the outfit you’re wearing. Use a little bit of discretion and you’ll have a wide variety of situations where cufflinks and French cuff shirts are appropriate.

What’s your personal opinion of French cuff shirts and how often do you wear them? Do you have any other styling tips related to French cuffs?

On a day that exists to be partisan, the sticker communicates an unadulterated patriotism and old-school levity not usually seen in this vitriolic political era. “I’ve seen the sticker on people of all ages, on pets—I saw a nice one where people were kissing, and they both had my ‘I Voted’ sticker on their cheeks,” Dagata said. “It’s sweet.”

By wearing these jeans, Meghan changed the life of 30 women

While some people might think the cost of Meghan Markle’s Australian wardrobe might have been high, you can’t deny that the Duchess is great at showing her support for emerging brands and designers.

Plus, Meghan is an advocate of sustainable and ethical fashion, which she proved by wearing one particular pair of jeans more than five times on the tour.

Said jeans are by Australian brand Outland Denim, who use organic cotton and natural vegetable dyes to make their jeans.

What a week for Outland Denim! Never could we have imagined the overwhelming support shown to our brand, our team and our mission since the Duchess of Sussex wore our Harriet jean not once but multiple times during her stay in Australia for the Invictus Games. This quiet, dignified, but determined support for our brand – and the humanitarian cause it represents – means the world to us, to our beautiful seamstresses, and to the 15 young women who are now feeling the empowerment of employment thanks to the "Markle Effect"! Meghan's modelling of positive change through the power of fashion sets a precedent for all other people with a public profile. Now to enjoy watching the Royal couple in New Zealand along with the rest of the world! 🌎 #madedifferent #zeroexploitation . . . . . 📸 Annette Dew/Newspix, Samir Hussein/Getty images

A post shared by Outland Denim (@outlanddenim) on

But more importantly, by wearing them, Meghan changed the life of 30 women. You see Outland Denim employ women in Cambodia who have been enslaved or sexually exploited.

Once the Duchess was spotted wearing the black Harriet jeans, these sold out within 48 hours, resulting in a massive 640% increase in sales.

Outland Denim has said that as a result, it can employ up to 30 more women.

In an Instagram post, it said, ‘Thanks to the Duchess’ choice in denim, we’re pleased to announce that it will be possible to employ a further 15 to 30 seamstresses in our Cambodian production house in the coming weeks, and the recruitment process has already begun’.

Another one read, ‘This quiet, dignified, but determined support for our brand – and the humanitarian cause it represents – means the world to us, to our beautiful seamstresses, and to the 15 young women who are now feeling the empowerment of employment.’

Excellent news indeed.
