Inspiration - J.Crew Factory
Sometimes certain combinations of clothing surprise me and look more like cohesive outfits then other attempts. This outfit is one of them - I really really like it. I've been trying to pin-point what exactly makes me love it so and the main thought that I land on is the (often mentioned) TLC What Not To Wear show formula: Basic Bottom + Printed Top + Completer Piece Jacket = foolproof outfit. I also think I really like the color combination - the bottom & top are both super neutral in black and white and then the jacket adds some color with blue. And for a tiny bit of interest there is the slightly unusual choice (but still neutral) grey shoe.
I really want to improve my ability to analyze outfit components to better convey what I like & thinks works & why that is here on the blog... Any other thoughts on explaining why I like this so much and it seems to 'just work'?
