Adrien: Theoretical.

This outfit worked in my head, it worked on paper, I thought it looked okay in real life, but maybe didn't work so well in photos. This sweater is one I've been wearing a ton, but mostly with skinny jeans because it's got volume. I thought it would work just as well with a pencil skirt, but it photographed kind of...droopy. Can win them all. But it's a great sweater, I swear! I like that it's got a wide neckline and it's a bit longer in the back, which makes it ideal for jeans. And the color is pretty much my favorite. Okay, I will stop now. What do you think?

  1. How would it look tucked and belted? As it is, it makes the pencil skirt kind of seem A-line. Great color on you, though.

    1. Too bulky to tuck, but belting maybe!

  2. I think you're right - love the necklace, color of sweater, tights and boots but the skirt has too much volume to work with the top. Somehow, the proportions aren't as flattering as they could be. I like slouchy but the word "droopy" you used, well, it's apt.

  3. Y'all, I swear it's a pencil skirt! But I will try a belt next time. Thanks!

  5. I really like it as-is, and it's a nice departure from your usual asthetic (not that I'm casting aspersions at your usual asthetic, which I think is awesome, just sayin' sometimes it's good to break out).
