We at Jewlr are always trying to keep you, our beloved readers in the know. We browse blogs, shopping sites, and social media outlets all day long to make sure we’re on top of our game. In doing so though, I found myself dumbfounded while examining some of the utterly Man Repelling images on some of my favorite street style blogs and sites…and then realized that my own sartorial choices were reminiscent of the very images that made me cringe.
It’s true, readers, there’s a self proclaimed Man Repeller speaking to you.
In any case, I decided to start a blog about myself the man repelling fashion trends sweeping the runways, trickling down to the sidewalks we inhabit (for a full definition, click here.) I’d like to share with you three of my most favorite man repelling pieces.
Trust me, I know a thing or two.
1. Harem pants, like say, these Joie ones from Shopbop.
What after all, is the reason a woman feels compelled to wear a crotch that drops so low. It’s not comfortable and it’s not attractive, I mean, did you crush on MC Hammer in the early 90′s. I’m gonna bet no. On the bright side though, should you need to shelter an army, there is plenty of room in your pants…provided said army opts to seek refuge in the atrocity.

2. Heavy shoulder pads.
Naturally, I adore the acid washed denim military inspired Balmain jacket that Rihanna is wearing pictured above, but I’m pretty sure if not positive that she is not a line backer. For this reason, it’s bizarre to think one would dress in a way that would leave her jackets/shirts/vests/sweaters suggesting otherwise.
3. Onesies and jumpsuits. You know, those full length body coverings we wore as children? Yep, they’re back. And of all the creepy things we could emulate, our infant years may very well be the creepiest. Below, an image from Givenchy’s Resort 2011 collection.
Well, it’s red alright.
Stay tuned for Alexandra’s picks and don’t forget to browse the glitzy pages of Jewlr for some non-Man Repelling jewelery options!
