WYWI – Is This Your Style?
With the official start of fall just one day away, retailers are bringing out all their plaids and tweeds. Is this your style? Do you like tweed, plaid, houndstooth, etc? Let’s discuss fall textures.
Today’s mannequin is wearing blue with vicuna, which is a combo I’m seeing styled together a lot this season. Do you pair warm with cool?
When I poll my readers, less than 60% like Would You Wear It (WYWI), but enough of you do, that I will continue with it because, frankly, I often learn great styling ideas from reading your comments!
Some women are insulted by the blunt and sweeping judgments other readers make. For that, I apologize. Several blogger friends have comment moderation turned on for every single comment on all posts because they can’t trust their audiences to be polite. I’ve never felt that it is necessary.
Please know that when I post an outfit for a brand collaboration, I’m simply sharing some new fashion I hope you may like. You needn’t feel it’s an invitation to critique them. I like to reserve those conversations for WYWI where they’re the most constructive.
Let’s just try to be cognizant that while this is an open forum, and everyone in our community has feelings.
Back to the mannequin…
I never comment on WYWI, but I can’t help myself with this one. When you click through to the jeans here, you see the entire outfit on a real woman. Mannequins often make clothes look better than they really are, but in this case, the opposite is true. On the mannequin, the jacket looks shapeless, and the jeans look too short. It’s also pretty obvious that the J. Jill website image has been altered to desaturate the colors, which is most notable in the shirt and it appears warmer than it is.
I feel a misfire between the neckline of the shirt and the blazer lapels. I would choose a shorter necklace that didn’t lay right on top of the shirt placket.
What about you? What stands out with this look?
Thanks for reading, and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
