A Moment with Kim: This Outfit Can Be Un-Fugged (and Claudia Approves!)
Man. That is beautiful. I can't even glance at this picture without becoming absolutely transfixed by the afghan/poncho/cardigan. It is so befuddling, and - maybe because it's so damn befuddling - I find myself wanting one. Claudia and I had to have a serious meeting to unpack our feelings about this ensemble. We made it through an entire can of Pringles and a bag of Hershey's Kisses before coming up with a solution.
Let me take you through the redemption process, step by step (this will involve some visualization on your part).
- Obviously, the first step is to burn the Louis Vuitton.
- Trade the white long-sleeved tee shirt in for a black version. That poncho-thing is a (textbook example of a) statement piece, and I think it would pop better against a black background.
- Take the poncho-thing's hemline up about a foot.
- I'm not super into the idea of "fashion rules" (I combine neutrals a lot, for one thing) but I do think this outfit makes a solid case for the theory that if you're wearing loose/flowy/oversized on top, you should be wearing something more streamlined on the bottom. Trade the ill-fitting flares for skinny jeans.
- Commence being awesome.
Anyone with me on this?
