WIW: Shirt under knit

I just had to try this out today - and I'm not convinced that it's working - I think I probably need boyfriend jeans rather than flares. (And pardon the around-the-house shoes)

Still, does this shirt and pullover work together, or does it end up with too much going on?

I like the almost-RATE integrity of this look a lot, and suspect I'll be playing with ways to make it not look preppy for a while.

    I think this works. I would also like it with boyfriends.

    How comfy is it?

  • amiable replied 8 years ago

    Thanks Thistle!  It's very comfy, and just the right warmth for today.

    I think it works -- in fact, I like the effect of the plaid showing through the sweater, creating a whole other subtle plaid in the red. I think it's fine with flares, and will take on an even more casual vibe with boyfriends. I would be kind of curious to see it with dark wash denim.

    I like this! I think dark boyfriends would work great too. Fun layering.

    Yes it works and I think you can totally play with it. I like how your dark shoes actually tie into the dark checks of the shirt, so I'd go with dark outside shoes too.

    What Janet said! Would love to see with a darker wash denim.

    I like this outfit as is.  I think you can change up the jeans for a different look, but this one is pretty good.  I like the sweater and shirt together.  I love this layered look, but I'm not sure I have the right pieces for it.  I don't have that many button down shirts.

    Definitely has potential. I do like the jeans but maybe darker ones with this would work better.

    I like the proportions but would love to see faded black or grey skinnies.  I'm so predictable. 

  • amiable replied 8 years ago

    I was actually thinking today that next time I wanted to try it with my gray (faded black) skinnies.....

  • Beth Ann replied 8 years ago

    ooohh!  I was just getting ready to type, "What about your gray skinnies?"  I think they would harmonize nicely in color and proportion.

  • Neel replied 8 years ago

    It totally works IMO. I even like the lighter jeans ... But darker would work really well too.

    I like this outfit a lot; and think your grey skinnies would make it even better.

  • replied 8 years ago

    I think this looks good! I don't mind the flares, but I think a darker wash would look better, or skinnies!

  • amiable replied 8 years ago

    Kate!  Welcome!  We were missing you on a thread of mine a couple of weeks ago :)

    Another "what Janet said".  Really liking the plaid showing through.
