When looking at you and commenting on your style, has anyone ever used any of the following words:
Have no fear, there is now a blogger shedding light on the brillance of your fashion expression. Here to rescue us all from the pressures of dressing in a way some could call sexy or attractive we have:
What is a Man Repeller, you say? Here is the definition found on Leandra’s blog:
outfitting oneself in a sartorially offensive way that will result in repelling members of the opposite sex. Such garments include but are not limited to harem pants, boyfriend jeans, overalls (see: human repelling), shoulder pads, full length jumpsuits, jewelry that resembles violent weaponry and clogs.
In this hilariously written blog, Leandra talks about all the different trends she embraces that seem to repel men and keep them at a distance. Examples include: harem pants, shoulder pads, jumpsuits, excessive jewlery, and socks paired with sandals.
Assuming that men often find things tight and simple to be the most attractive way of dressing, and having an affinity for layering both patterns and fabrics, Leandra’s style may be seen as kooky to some. The fact is her style is reverred by designers and fashion critics alike and has recieved lots of postive press around her humorous style of writing and lighthearted approach towards fashion. Featured in Lucky Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle Girl, and more, Leandra has quickly become one to watch in her short time blogging.
Above, Leandra takes a dress that she recognizes as a tried and true “man-getter” and through several addition turns it into a verified “man-repeller.” Priceless!
Socks with sandals? Turban and nerd glasses? Yes, oh yes! This isn’t even quirky folks; this is a perfect example of how to wear high-end trends with out looking like you are trying too hard or like you don’t have a mind of your own. Personally, I commend Leandra; she is my new fashion icon and someone that I will be watching in the months and seasons to come.
Make sure to check out Leandra’s blog and next time you are headed out, throw on a fur vest (or several!) and a pair of socks with those sandals and commend yourself for being a fellow “Man Repeller”!
