Hmmm. This whole look is more than it seems at first glance.
Let’s start with this: the face and hair are crushing it. Moving down, the suit is pretty great and fits her beautifully. Then we hit the waist bow. That’s … not quite a dealbreaker, but it’s hard to get past. We’re all for prettying up a pantsuit, but tying a bow around the waist doesn’t strike us as the way to go about it. Then there’s the rest of the ensemble. While the green fur looks like it could be really fab for her, we’d really have to see it on. It doesn’t seem like the kind of thing you’d wear with that suit. Then there’s the contrasting green of the clutch (which we’re not sure works that well with the jacket/wrap), and the red shoes. It’s not too over-the-top, but it all comes off a little random. Basically, every objection to the outfit we have – and we have to point out their minor quibbles – comes down to an attempt to zhuzh up a fairly basic suit.
But she looks really cute here. We’re just nitpicking the details.
