This is … cute on paper. Maybe not so much in execution.
We definitely like the idea of a cropped moto over a gown. And we think this one hits the mark in terms of being dramatic, head-turning and slightly badass. But that weird belt situation, the way it separates from the jacket and then trails down the front, is distracting to the point of hurting the look. It doesn’t help that the skirt itself looks like a semaphore flag or something. The head styling is pretty cute, although we think the hoops are a bit of a cliche.
We don’t know.. it’s one of those looks we like on first glance and then slowly like less and less the longer we look at it. A couple of good ideas that weren’t quite developed to their full potential.
