Each piece individually is great – the shoes, the skirt and the bag. The skirt and the shoes each go with the bag, but the skirt and shoes don’t play nicely together. Give me a solid, bold-colored skirt, though and it would be extraordinary.
Love this mix of abstract print, but the leopard shoes put me off as they don’t seem to flow with the lovely clutch and skirt/ shorts (?). I would have taken a pair of that compliments the colours in the skirt.
the skirt is gorgeous. a different pair of shoes could have saved the look. let’s hope that it will rain soon and those shoes will be ruined forever.
P.s.: in my opinion, leopard prints are a fashion obscenity. they should be banned, they should be banned!
Well! This thread is certainly proof that taste is truly personal. I adore this woman’s ensemble. For me the early 60s graphic pattern of the bag picks up the pattern of the skirt and style and pattern of the shoes, in different, contrasting ways, while the colours of the skirt are reflected in each accessory, to similar effect. I was so surprised that others didn’t see this harmonious clash which is all the more thrilling for its dissonance. But that is what personal taste is all about, I guess.
I love the purple top! It’s like cardbuy!! Love it!! Also, the skirt and tights match so well with the shoes, especially with the darker tone in the skirt. wow! If it was me, I would swap the jacket (I do love this camel jacket though!!) with your big black furry one, and a black patent leather handbag, to hold the outfit together and draw more attention to the gorgeous purple, and the exquisite shoes on the end of those long sexy legs!!!! haha. Don’t get me wrong though, the jacket is wonderful, and the jacket-top combo is a delight!! xx
I think its more of a classic then something that comes and goes. Like stripes or polka dots. There are just times where they are a bit more, and times when they are a bit less. Of course there are far more people that can’t pull off stripes then leopard print. But both ere here to stay for good. I am not even sure how you can not pull off leopard print, exactly. Like the same way people “can’t” pull off bright color? I don’t know. I don’t think basics are boring.
