Does This Outfit Work?
Hello, welcome to the first installment of "Does This Outfit Work?"
I became obsessed with these J. Crew silk pants ever since seeing them on A Bigger Closet (see Feb. 28 "Sunday Style" posting). Well, as a friend pointed out, ABC is not of this world. She can wear things that the rest of us mere mortals just cannot pull off. I'm hoping these pants aren't a case in point.
Despite the horrible angle (what happens when you have a grumpy 10-year-old photographer who would rather be playing Jump Start World rather than do what you asked), the pants don't look bad in real life. They're just slouchy enough but not rapper baggy. I paired the pants with last year's wildly popular "cupcake" tank (again from J. Crew) and a matching Crew cardi. The snakeskin flats are Me Too.
Too much volume on top? Better off with a more form-fitting top? Lose the ruffles? Hmmmmm.
