Sometimes, the only way to know if an outfit will work is to try it. Sometimes, it works out great. Sometimes…it does not.
I actually really like this outfit. The neon, stone-washed denim, and studded belt give it a cool 80s vibe without looking costume-y. What I didn’t realize, though, was how uncomfortable I would be wearing it to work. A sure sign that something isn’t quite right is when you have to keep tugging on it…and tug on this dress I did – all day.
Of course, I’d rather not make these mistakes to begin with. It’d be much better to realize before I walked out the door (or was running so late, I didn’t have time to change – a more common scenario) that my outfit just didn’t work for the occasion. But, experience is a great teacher, and at least I got a good non-work outfit out of the deal.
Have you ever tried out an outfit, only to realize a little too late that it just didn’t quite work for the situation (or in general)? Or have you had the opposite, much more pleasant experience of being unsure of a new outfit experiment, only to be greeted with rave reviews? Let’s swap stories!
