Bringing just a little bit of head-turning fabu-cray to the proceedings:
But it’s a clear example of a look being far more than the sum of its parts. The blouse is obviously the centerpiece of this look and it would be nothing without it. But it’s also a little bit too tricky and slightly overdesigned. On someone else, styled differently, it could be an easy disaster. But the boyfriend jeans, the simple red sandals (with one goofy detail, to be sure), the hair and the jewelry and above all, the wearer herself – they’re all combining to make for a fabulous look instead of one that looks like a candy cane or barbershop pole.
Having said that, they could’ve done a better job of wrapping her up. It looks better on the model.
