We really like this look on an intellectual level. By that we mean that we appreciate the design of the individual pieces and how they fit together to make an ensemble.
But we’re not sure if we actually like it as a look. In other words, love the ideas behind the designs; not sure if we actually love the outfit in practice.
We’d say that top is pretty great. But we’d also say, given the proportions and silhouette, that it needs a specific bottom piece to set it off. That skirt? We’re just not so sure. The tulip hem and center zipper are not just incredibly distracting, but slightly unflattering as the skirt winds up looking like a square. Given how blocky that top is, we think we’d have rather put her in some low-slung jeans or high-waisted slim white pants.
Anyway, those are our thoughts. We can’t quite commit to loving it, but we don’t necessarily hate it. What are yours?
