Fashion blogger Leandra Medine may be repelling men with her outfits, but all of the women out there should be paying attention to what she’s wearing, especially her latest look. The Man Repeller wore a dress over jeans to the Gucci Resort 2016 Supper Party, and it looked so good. And this is coming from someone who’s not a huge fan of the whole dress with jeans thing.
But dang, she is changing my mind with this look. For some reason, well several reasons, actually, this look came together flawlessly. I think it’s a combination of the length of the dress, the color and fit of the pants and the jacket she paired it with. With all of that combined — She. Nailed. This. Look.
And she’s gotten me wanting to try the dress over jeans thing out for myself. If you’re skeptical about the look — believe me, I don’t blame you. But, I think if done the right way, this can really work.
Of course, wearing a dress over pants is nothing new. Kendall Jenner recently wore an outfit reminiscent of a salwar kameez, a traditional form of Asian dress, a sartorial decision that many deemed culturally appropriative.
