Leandra Medine On Naming Her Blog and Her Best Styling Tips

elle-1117-samira-1512582739

ELLE Fashion Director Samira Nasr swaps fashion philosophies and under-the-radar finds with Man Repeller blogger Leandra Medine.

ELLE: Why the name Man Repeller?
Leandra Medine: I wasn’t really thinking about building a brand when I launched the site seven years ago, but the name was so catchy, so gimmicky, and I knew people wouldn’t forget it. It also provided me with an opportunity to be really irreverent.

You approach fashion with fun, but I also think of your style as very feminine. Have you gone through androgynous or menswear moments? Definitely. [A couple of years ago] all I wanted to wear was high-waisted vintage Levi’s and flannel shirts from Uniqlo and J.Crew men’s. That’s probably when I started pinning photos of you as inspiration!...

We get you, winter weddings are tough events to tackle. The warm weather months get the most play when it comes to weddings, and by the colder months, you've exhausted your favorite options for dress-up and would rather spend weekends curled up in front of a fireplace or a Netflix binge.

Here, 12 chic looks to suit every woman's style–and make you the best dressed...

"I'm usually a Thanksgiving dress person, because let's be honest—skinny jeans and Thanksgiving dinner don't get along—but this year I'm switching it up with a jumpsuit. The key here: a drawstring waist that can be loosened with each helping of pie." — Gena Kaufman, ELLE.com Social Media Director

You can’t just be like, “Oh, my God, I’m over-dressed.” Don’t say that....

How To Find The Right Evening Bag For Your Look

image (7)
Try to think about the last time you decided to invest in an evening bag. You are probably struggling to come up with even one time it has happened. It usually goes like this: you think about the dress, then you think about the shoes, and then you start texting your friends: "hoops or studs? choker or monogrammed chain necklace?" And when all that's said and done, and you think your work here is finished, you're left with one lingering afterthought, "Crap, I still need a bag." This all-too familiar scenario has us scrounging around for a bag small enough to be considered a clutch - usually just our most basic going out crossbody - and hoping we get away with it. So...

5 Ways To Wear PJ’s, According To Milan Fashion Week’s Street Style Scene

Photographed by Phil Oh
Ciao, bella! The showgoers of Milan Fashion Week are now departing for the runways in Paris, and what sartorial inspiration they’ve left in their wake. This season, the street style crew embraced pajama dressing and the cozy Danish hyggephenomenon in new and wonderful ways, proving that getting decked out for the photographers outside the shows doesn’t have to mean sacrificing comfort. There were silk pants with fuzzy, furry moccasins, overcoats with easy button-down blouses, and white denim (yes, after Labor Day) with slides and thin silk scarves. It was as if the most stylish travelers were living that dolce vita life, valuing ease over edge and backing away from full lewks—though, unlike most locals, they probably didn’t squeeze in that classic afternoon nap.
