Sartorially offensive is what the ‘Man Repeller’ does. Taking fashion trends that men hate and popularising it into a movement of female emancipation and an attitude of ‘ I don’t give a ****’ is blissfully refreshing. Political correctness is boring, give me blunt, honest hilarity any-day. Whenever I see articles in the newspaper with sensationalist titles such as,’10 Fashion Trends that Men Hate’ or ‘What not to Wear to a Date’, it sends my feminist spirit into fury mode. Honestly, who cares what others think? I wouldn’t want my young niece to read these articles, and think the sole reason of her existence is to please another’s eyes. If I want to wear crotch sagging harem pants (jokes, those are truly horrible), clunky platforms, or a completely oversized duster coat, it’s a free world baby! Fashion is expression, so don’t let any sexist articles hinder your style ;).
Overall, I’m a big fan of 2015 pre-fall silhouettes, it’s loose, free and awfully comfortable. Brand favourites such as Celine, Cos or Acne have traditionally favoured this silhouette, with gorgeous minimalistic pieces. The latest ‘man-repelling’ fashion item are culottes. Otherwise known as those wide-legged pants that swallow the vertically challenged. Personally, I think they they look majestic, with a pair of stilettos and paired with an oversized waistcoat. Seems like more man-repelling fashion is on our way, and it never looked more comfortable.
