In her semi-autobiographical book Seeking Love: Finding Overalls, Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller chronicles how man-repelling in some harem pants from Zara helped her win the love of her life back. Our Fashionista this week embodies that confident, sartorial attitude and I love how she paired two slouchy items (pants and sweater) with a statement necklace to pull the look together.

Name: Camille Chetrit

Major: Health Science

Year: Freshman

CollegeFashionista: What are you wearing and where is it from?

Camille Chetrit: The pants and sweater are from Zara, and the top is from Brandy Melville. The necklace is J.Crew and my shoes are from Loeffler Randall.

CF: How would you describe your personal style?

CC: I don’t think I have a set genre, but I like to keep it classy, tasteful and unique.

CF:  What is your favorite season to dress for and why?

CC: Fall! I like wearing pants, oversized sweaters and over-the-knee boots. The weather’s great, it’s crisp, but not freezing. 

CF: What item in your closet would you deem essential?

CC: You can never go wrong with a classic white T-shirt.

CF: What’s your favorite way to accessorize?

CC: Big earrings. 

CF: What are some of your favorite stores?

CC: Zara, Brandy Melville, or AllSaints. Really, anywhere on Newbury is great.

CF: If you could shop in any city, where would it be?

CC: New York, because it has absolutely everything you could imagine, for prices that are cheaper than Paris or London. 

How To:  For those of you who are unfamiliar, a man repeller is defined as: “she who outfits herself in a sartorially offensive mode that may result in repelling members of the opposite sex. Such garments include, but are not limited to harem pants, boyfriend jeans, overallsshoulder pads, full length jumpsuits, jewelry that resembles violent weaponry and clogs.” Man-repelling teaches the single most important rule to live by in fashion: wear whatever you want, but wear it confidently.
