This is the kind of look that inspires immediate reactions, which tends to make it a perfect candidate for an IN/OUT vote, but we have a different question in mind. Considering how … declarative this outfit is; how adamant in its style and bold in its vibe, we’d normally let the pictures do all the talking here. But as you scroll through and have your Big Reaction, consider this:
How would you feel if Zendaya was wearing this?
We ask because our initial impression of it on Madelaine was “Too much,” but we’re almost certain we’d love it on Zendaya. That’s not necessarily an argument for or against this look. Our whole take on good style is that pieces have to be paired with the right wearer, which means what looks good on one person may look awful on another.
Personally, we like this and we think she’s got the right kind of young-and-fresh vibe to make it work. The colors are a little garish and we think a couple elements could be edited out to the look’s benefit, but overall, we think she’s crushing this one.
