oh dear: the shoes

subject: solange knowles



(borrowed from: theybf.com)

dear solange,

you were doing pretty well with this outfit...until we saw your shoes. how do we put this lightly? the shoes don't work for this look, solange. another outfit maybe. not this one. there are ways to wear a variety of patterns and still make an outfit work. this one isn't working, solange. it just isn't. here's what we would've done differently:

*sandals instead, maybe?



these could work. they're spunky, very much in season, and the brown and blue complement each other really nicely. get them here.

don't listen to your stylist anymore, S. can we call you that? speaking of calling, call US instead, S.

love,

teamliquorice

haha! that was FUN :) incidentally, we spotted a similar skirt at forever21 earlier this week so if you're looking to recreate this look, help is on the way!










keep it simple with black pumps (as seen above) or get some bright, cheery pumps. or dress the skirt down with a plain tee and some thong or gladiator sandals. we could go on :)

tops - asos
skirt - forever21
shoes - bakers

(quick tip - tuck the top in so the ruffles are more pronounced.)

how would you have done it differently?
