Ladies? Prepare ye to be judged.

SHE: Would look fine to us if everything fit her better. There are so many chic ways for women to wear menswear – even literal menswear like this – but for someone who’s been doing it for so many years, she rarely ever lands on any of them. The pants and the jacket look tight and uncomfortable on her and the shirt doesn’t provide enough contrast. None of the pieces feel like they go with each other and she just looks uncomfortable as hell all around. Score: 4/10. If this is your personal style, then why do you look so awkward? If you’re gonna do it, do it well.
SHE: Looks very chic and put together in a ladies-who-lunch kind of way. It’s not a bad look for her to try out, although we do think the hair cut’s a bit aging and dated. We’re resigned to the current vogue for that hem length, but this whole look sure would look freshened up if she raised it to knee length and ditched the black accessories for some minor sparkle. You could argue that she’s dressed conservatively for a reason, for which we’re willing to concede a couple points. Score: 8/10. It’s fine and it’s venue-appropriate, but we think she could have made some more interesting styling choices while still hitting the mark.
Combined score: 6/10. Ellen, hire yourself a master tailor.
