Man Repellers

My sister and this girl agree, sometimes buying into fashion trends means giving up any and all sex appeal. Enter my favorite new style of pant - the Man Repellers, inspired by the fantastic website hyperlinked above. I read a story last year in Harper's Bazaar that said relaxed trouser pants which taper at the leg can surprisingly flatter most body types. Um, sure - I'll buy what your selling.  But I think when you go for it with a pair of harem trouser pants, you just have to know the look is completely unflattering and accept it. 

I bought a pair that I wavered on FOREVER, to the point that my coworkers were about to return the damn pants for me. I couldn't let go of the notion that all my pants need to be skinny in order to prove Yes I Do have a nice butt.  I got mine from my happy place on earth, Zara, for only $40. If you look on the website, they have a ton of pleated/tapered options so clearly this trend is here to stay. I say go bold and give it a try. Just do it on the cheap so you don't waste money.

  1. Awww, sometimes you do listen to me!! I have to say though that those pants could be cute with super high pumps and some sort of close fitting top tucked into them and a fitted blazer? An example of my fave Kourtney Kardashian:
