From Sunglasses with Bows to Cat-Like Claws

 - Jun 5, 2012
Although beauty is in the eye of the beholder, these man-repelling fashion statements will be envied by ladies, but detested by gents. The term "man repelling" was popularized by fashion blogger and chief man repeller Leandra Medine.

Medine defines man repelling as the art of "outfitting oneself in a sartorially offensive way that will result in repelling members of the opposite sex." There are a number of fashion trends and ensembles that are generally disliked by males yet idolized by fashionistas. Things like ballerina buns and dark menacing lipsticks are considered high-brow and haughty by the male population. If you want to keep dudes at bay, then consider jumpsuits, military-infused jewelry and bold brows as part of your day-to-day uniform.

Fashion is ultimately about dressing for yourself and doing what makes you confident. So, don't fear the idea of experimenting with these supposed man-repelling fashion statements.
