Last week, there was an article on Thought Catalog entitled “Five Things Only A Hot Skinny Model Can Wear.” And, seeing as it was written by a member of the opposite sex, I obviously read the entire thing, clinging to every last word. From harem pants to crop tops, the list is all about man-repelling—from a man’s perspective:

1. A backwards hat:

“…if your face happens to be stunningly gorgeous, you can do whatever the hell you want. ‘Oh, I look kind of stupid in this hat? Thank god I’m sexy so it doesn’t matter!'”

Brokedown Army Cadet Hat, $72

2. Harem pants:

I’ll be honest, I’m sort of sick of hearing about “man-repelling” clothing. Because 90% of the girls actually wearing these weird hipster ensembles are bombshell babes so it doesn’t matter. They aren’t repelling any men. They could show up to a party in denim overalls and “I have chlamydia” stapled to their forehead and still go home with a babe. Harem pants are weird looking but if they’re worn by someone hot, it’s not so weird.”

Alexis Alana Tapered Pant with Slant Front Pocket, $159

3. Bathing suits:

Legs, stomachs, boobs and butts: The gang’s all here! Oh, I think my body issues are too. So glad they could make it!!”

L*Space Posh Bandeau Bikini in Black, $154

4. Skinny jeans:

“Damn skinny jeans for tricking an entire generation of twenty-somethings into thinking they could wear that kind of denim cut. It was a dirty lie. Like everything else in fashion, it was only meant to be worn by Lauren Conrad on an episode of The Hills but it ended up becoming a phenomenon.”

James Jeans Twiggy 5 Pocket Legging Jean, $141

5. Crop tops:

…Kelly Kapowski did it. I know fashion is going in this direction of Saved By The Bell but, like Jessie Spano felt about her addiction to caffeine pills, I’m so excited and so…scared about all of it.”

Alternative Apparel Molly Burnout Crop Top, $44
