My Latest Man Repellent Outfits


[dropcap]S[/dropcap]omething funny is happening to my wardrobe. The hues of blue and black denim have now been joined by a white pair of jeans. Skinny ones. When I wiggle into them I break in to the Tight Pants song (have you seen it? it’s the best) They are my most man repellent jeans yet, but I love them. And joining this white denim man repellent revolution…the addition of the prettiest white prom skirt, a culotte jumpsuit, and a silvery midi skirt. Last night, I was on the prowl online looking for the perfect nude/blush/maybe even white oversized hoodie to travel in next week and lost myself for two hours. What is happening? Have I been infected with the Puff Daddy White Party virus? All the patterns, florals, and black, black, black of my wardrobe is being taking over by a rainbow of neutral hues (except for the leopard print sandals) and now I feel like a cool, sophisticated city type that has a subscription to Cereal magazine and makes almond milk in their spare time.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”17636″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1516893400536{padding-top: 120px !important;padding-right: 40px !important;padding-bottom: 130px !important;padding-left: 40px !important;background-color: #f8f3f0 !important;}”]

As a natural klutz of the very finest kind, I have always held off wearing anything that will show off everything I’ve drunk, eaten or smeared across my clothes throughout the day. I notoriously get food crumbs in my hair, so the only solution to wearing white jeans is to not eat or drink in them.

At all.

…hah, unlikely! * I get my tights pants on*

I’m a huge fan of midi skirts- they’re my go-to when I want to feel smart and put together but still comfortable. This skirt comes in different colours- in fact, I wore the rosewood coloured one at our weekend in Hampshire in last year.

For casual, I’d wear it with my current favourite sandals or dress it up with blush pink heels.

Silver midi skirt (now reduced to £24.50)

Animal print sandals

Circle belt skirt

I first saw this in the Tall section and cursed the shop for not making a regular size. A week later, my wish came true and I immediately grabbed at this skirt. It’s made of that strange scuba material that doesn’t lose its shape. I feel so Audrey Hepburn in this.

The waistband makes me feel cinched in, without cutting off circulation and the circle belt detail is more for show than function. I want to wear this, by the sea, with a straw bag and sunglasses.

Also, I’m so on the navy t shirt train right now. It makes a nice change from black and white tee basics!

And now, my last man repellant outfit, which may be the most repellent of all.

Okay, one- culottes.

Two- jumpsuit

And also, it’s all white.

I know, I know, who am I anymore?

Culotte jumpsuit

But, I love this outfit! It’s so comfortable and I feel so chic in it. The origami folds at the front stop this from feeling too sack-like and even though it’s got quite the plungey neckline, I don’t feel like I’m flashing everyone or in danger of falling out. If this had pockets, it would be a 10/10 all round.

  1. OMG. First of all, I’ve been wearing man repelling outfits every day and it feels GD good: super wide leg trousers, mermaid-coloured skirts, etc. It’s been great. SECONDLY, you know I freaking love your style … and I just might be making a purchase or two. THIRD … F*CKING HELL YOUR NEW BLOG REDESIGN LOOKS SO AMAZING!!!


  2. I love ALL of these so much, especially the white skirt. I love wearing man repelling outfits – I bought a few man repelling pieces yesterday, justified because dress codes in Dubai are a little stricter during Ramadan but also because I love all of them and want to wear them regardless!
