From Man Getter to Man Repeller: Leather Pants
11.15.10

The Man Repeller is a blog about highly coveted fashion trends that women adore and men abhor. [You already know this, duh. But Lucky readers may not.] While I stay committed to outfitting myself by the guidelines of my alias, it’s important to note that several key sartorial staples fall into the Man Getting category season after season. Take the leather pant for example. Just because tight leather pants rubbing up against your legs may help kick start the mating process you are trying to avoid [Proenza before Peen!], doesn’t mean you can’t repel in them. This is where I come in. Below, a handy tutorial that will help turn your favorite Man Getter into a trendy Man Repeller.

A rare occasion it is that a woman goes wrong with leather, the fabric symbolizes sexy, and when paired with a plain cotton tank and steep metallic stilettos, I’m armed to Man Get…or am I? Either way, this is not okay.

It’s boner bashing time.

Here, however, I’ve traded in flimsy cotton for a silk blouse adorned by shoulder pads so thick you’d never know how hard those chunky necklaces are pulling my neck down, and stiletto heels for a more comfortable and practical shoe: the brogue. Once referred to by a man friend as “party shoes for boys,” these kicks have successfully male-deterred through thick and thin. Last, no look is complete without an oversized clutch. Ever.

If however, this is still not enough, add a little leopard print to the equation.

Look how happy I am. A Man Repeller can’t change her spots. I dare you to try and score a date in this get up.
No really. 
Try it, send your photos and tell of your tales.
