Savage Style

outfitting oneself in a sartorially offensive way that will result in repelling members of the opposite sex. This includes but is not limited to harem pants, boyfriend jeans, overalls (see:human repelling), shoulder pads, full length jumpsuits, jewelry that resembles violent weaponry and clogs.

Savage Style is dedicated to celebrating street fashion worthy of being categorized as "savage" and to do this its important to highlight pedestrians despite their geographic location. (In theory, "local fashion" is relative to where in the world you're reading the post.)

Today's featured savage styler is the self-proclaimed man repeller fashion blogger herself, Leandra Medine.

Medine got the idea for her site while out shopping with a girlfriend. They both noticed how "man repellent" some of the latest fashions were and thus sprang forth the brain child that has garnered her recognition by major fashion publications and fashion designers.

The native to New York's Upper East Side highlights trends on others as well as the trends she herself wears - and sparks.

Jacket: Veda
Socks: Polo
Sandals: Miu Miu

Sweater: H&M
Tank Top: Club Monaco
Belt: Hermes
Shoes: Valentino

Yellow sweater: Dallin Chase
Trench vest: Fulton

These are just a small sample of the fantastic outfits and trend spotting done by Medine, all done with hilarious commentary that is self-deprecating in the way that only those who love fashion know how to do. Her style and passion for all things fabulous may be a man repellent to suitors, but for all others there's a natural gravitational pull towards her and her site for the latest sartorial update from her poignant perspective. But seeing is believing, so check out the site and let Medine school you on a lesson that you should have learned in fashion 101: how to dress for yourself and to hell with the hecklers.

Think you've got enough style to be considered a shopping savage? E-mail your photos to with a breakdown of your outfit and your photo may be our feature of the week!
