This blog is but 15 months old and in those 15 months I think I’ve delivered tutorials in the dozens of the layering variety. Prints, fabrics, colors, reptile emulation, you name it, I’ve likely done it. And then yesterday it dawned on me (read: someone inquired about the nature of the following): earth to Man Repeller, not everyone has your alien flat chest and zygote small feet. Eureka! Deliver a layering post for bustier, curvier repellers. I’d thought about this previously but concluded I didn’t have the proper fit model or clothes to properly execute so brushed the notion off. Earth to Man Repeller one more time, there’s such thing as Polyvore for a reason! Hello! Duh! Create outfits for shits and ha-has! And so below, please find an outfit I’d reckon ideal for a hot chick with hot curves…looking to, you know, look less hot more bad-ass-rad.
Start with a cool blouse. Instead of taking the traditional route and starting with a simple staple, we look to this statement Isabel Marant multi-denim button up. Buttons snapped to neck unnecessary. Your collarbones rock, the world should know it
. Pair the blouse with palazzo pants. People are afraid of palazzo pants, I’m not sure why. If they’re of the high-waist variety, they do a mean job slimming the waist and are typically so long they create illusion-mile long stems. The polka-dot pajama chic pair shown is via Asos.
Add a vest. The cardigan is left unbuttoned so you can still appreciate and admire the blouse underneath. Add a vest to get the layering ball rolling.
The outfit won’t read clunky. This one is great, by Rachel Comey
. I for one, have a similar version by Gryphon.
. The higher the better. Try for your most comfortable high-ass heel. No one is going to see it under the pant, and you don’t want to look like you’re on stilts. Actually…you kind of do. This pair is by Giuseppe Zanotti.
And finally, the last step is optional.
If it’s cold out, take a turn for the Penny Lane and finish off the look with a thick coat.
If you’re feeling frisky, do a little outerwear swap and try the Rachel Comey vest over the Maje coat.
Happy repelling! (…And
Sukkot festival of tents.)
