Jordana Brewster in Tucker

Posted on July 27, 2012

It’s the end of the work week, and like almost everyone reading this today, we’re struggling not to phone it in. So we have to ask: are we being cranky sticks-in-the-mud when we state …

Jordana Brewster attends the Dannijo & Tucker Tea Party in Beverly Hills.

… that a silver mesh top is a horrible choice to pair with that skirt? And yet, when we first glanced at this outfit, we found it mostly inoffensive. The skirt’s a bit twee, but it’s also quite striking, and we like it paired with those sandals, which are pretty much the best pair of summer-dressy shoes we’ve seen in a while. The purse is a bit “meh,” but doesn’t really bother us. This is clearly a casual-dressy poolside event and everything from her waist down either doesn’t bother us or looks great to us.

But MAN, the more we look at that top, the more we think it was an awful choice. Given the venue, some sort of classy mesh top* might have worked. In fact, we think a black mesh could have worked quite well. But silver? With those pieces? It just feels so… off.

 

* Fine. Go ahead and chew on the term “classy mesh top.” We won’t stop you. But such a thing might exist. You don’t know for sure.
