Good style is quite often about knowing your references and how to combine and juxtapose them in ways that catch the eye and look fresh. For instance, Miss Laverne is currently attempting to marry Beyonce to Hillary:
It’s not working for us.
The jacket is fabulous. Much as we love a good, matchy Hillary-style pantsuit, we’re just not loving those pants. The snaps along the bottom, in combination with the sandals, give it too much of a tracksuit-and-flip-flops vibe, which really doesn’t work with the exuberance of the jacket. The jacket’s interesting enough. It needs a fairly basic pair of pants in order to set it off, not a bottom half that’s fighting for attention. We’d have loved it with a pair of tight jeans.
Also: Matchy bag is no.
