Style File: Blake Lively Finds New Twists on The Lady Suit in Vivienne Westwood and Ralph & Russo

Posted on August 21, 2018

Miss Blake’s got something to sell, which means she can’t stop/won’t stop dressing up in a new outfit every 40 minutes or so until everyone in America agrees to buy a ticket. Please give, won’t you? For Blake.

Bitchery aside, our last go-round on the Lively Train had us opining on her whole approach to fashion and how it’s easy to make fun of but deserves a base level of respect. Of note in this follow up is how she’s continuing to explore interesting takes on the lady suit. If nothing else, she gets credit for finding unique iterations of something that was starting to feel a little played out.

Having said that, she still looks goofy as shit here. Like, kudos to you for finding a fresh new spin on the pantsuit, Blake! Unforch, it’s ridiculous.

Love the shoes, though. Not with this mess, of course, but paired with something that deserves them.

Next up: Blake finds a similarly problematic new spin on the lady tux!

It started off so great, right? Maybe you love the super-wide pleated pants, but we can’t say we do. She gets a lot of credit for attempting this look, but off the runway and out in the so-called real world, it looks really gimmicky to us.
