I believe style should be fun and experimental and creative. Wear what you love, mix things up, break the old rules and enjoy. I love wearing navy with black, rock and roll tee shirts, combat boots with a dress, colorful hose: all that good stuff along with the occasional style fail. In the spirit of fashion experimentation and sharing, I tried this Pinterest “tip” today:
Yes, the graphic looks odd, and begs the question: why not just wear a skirt? But there’s no way to know if this is the New Thing, unless you have fashion courage.
I chose a stretchy dress because it looks like we’re going to need some give. I did manage to wiggle into the inside-out, upside-down dress with a little guidance from Sandy, who is after all a Master Engineer.
After I got into my upside down dress and pulled it up, the bodice created a bizarre underthing. Armholes were resting on my hips. Belting the ever-shifting fabric was a challenge too; I finally went with a scarf-as-belt. It takes a little coordination, so small fails occurred here.
Once I had belted and flipped down the “skirt” part, I got the concept: I have a new-to-me skirt with an underwear problem and a hem problem. I also have a new pot belly, from two belts and lots of extra fabric.
The final look:
Verdict: go the easy way, and wear a blouse over a dress to make a lovely top + skirt look. Nobody wants lumpy underwear.
