How to Dress like a Real Life (Eco-Chic) Man Repeller

Greta EaganComment

Inspired by the Man Repeller, Leandra Medine, and her new book (Man Repeller: Seeking Love, Finding Overalls) this look is an amazing mix of prints, textures and outright style! Not only does it include the Canadian tuxedo (denim on denim), but combines a couple of prints with a bazaar influenced clutch and statement earrings- all grounded with a practical pair of oxfords. Man repeller perfection. Here’s how to get the look with eco-chic pieces:

TOBOGGAN STRIPED JACKET, Pendelton The Portland Collection, $498. The Toboggan Striped Jacket was inspired by one of the first women’s pieces Pendleton ever manufactured from the 1920s, which the designers came across during a trip to the archives. The Portland team modernized it with a tailored, slimmed-down cut, but used small details to hark back to the original toboggan. In a pinion stripe, the fabric was specifically engineered for this jacket. The wool is woven in Pendleton, Ore., and finished in Washougal, Wash., at the historic Pendleton mills.

TENCEL DENIM SHIRT, L’Herbe Rouge, $111. Boxy borrowed-from-the-boys shirt cut from Tencel. A wardrobe staple.

SIDE STRIPE PANT, Henry and Belle, $210. The Side Stripe Pant is a form-fitting skinny jean with printed tuxedo stripe. Such a fun take on the tuxedo skinny and made right here in the USA.

PADDI BROGUE, Convert, $239. A classic oxford, ethically made from premium leather in Portugal.

SURF BEAD & CHIAN EARRINGS, Muses & Rebels, $129. Designed and lovingly made in Venice Beach, CA.

MIRROR POMPOM TREASURE TASSEL CLUTCH, A Boyd Bazaar, £130.00. Vintage pieces to make these unique clutches are collected all over India and turned into signature pieces.
