Would You Wear It??

There was a lot of talk this week with the over 50 bloggers about fashion magazines...do we still look to them for inspiration?  I only read a couple...HARPER'S BAZAAR and INSTYLE...to get ideas and see what it happening in the world of fashion.  So, in this edition of Harper's Bazaar, I found an ad for spring fashion.  I have numbered the looks in the ad...so tell me, would you wear any of them, all of them, or which ones?? (Sorry the pictures are not better!) Numbers 1-3 are maxi-dresses, and #4 is a pant outfit.  This is our weekly dose of Would You Wear It....


By the way, there is a misconception that I only post looks I personally like on Would You Wear It...not so, I try to go for a variety of what the industry is showing us in visuals...I do not tell you what I think, on purpose...I want to know what YOU think!

Enjoy your Saturday!!

  1. I hardly buy the glossy mags any more so full of ads and irrelevant fashion. I prefer to get inspiration from the internet, pinterest and other bloggers. Have a good week-end and thank you for all your nice comments.

  2. Make the one on the right more form fitting, and it could become Minnesota-winter, around-the-house loungewear (a category of clothing I know all too well). Otherwise, hmmm. . .

  3. #1, #2 & #4 look like different types of pajamas but I might give #3 a whirl if I had the right occasion to wear it :)

  4. I am a fan of stripes in moderation, but the whole prisoner look doesn't work for me. #3 is glamorous so in the right setting?

  5. If #2 were available in a tunic version, I'd wear in a heartbeat over jeans. No turban, tho. :-)

  6. The only thing I'm drawn to is #2, but I agree with une femme...only as a tunic. The stripes over stripes is definitely not appealing. lol

  7. #1 I might consider for pool side but rarely need anything for that anymore. I have a pool but am generally hostessing for the kids in shorts and a tee. I am tall so rarely would be able to find a maxi long enough but even so they generally feel too fussy for my style. The stripes in 2 and 4 are too much for me- I like a stripe top but these would feel overdone for my style. And I don't dress in all black anymore so 3 is out although I can't see the picture well.

  8. I think I have always looked at magazines as inspirations I changed to fit me (which has always meant I changed it A LOT).

    I would take the photo as inspiration to add some new stripes (which I LOVE) to my wardrobe. I wouldn't wear any of the outfits as is, but as Susan said, if there were a tunic version of #2, I would also gladly wear it!

  9. I think I will pass on all three!

  10. I had already heard that stripes are big again this Spring and apparently graphic prints. That's about my take-away from an ad like this. Does anybody really wear this stuff?

  11. In my 20s my dress was part Indiana Jones, part resort from the pages of Vogue with a little business Armani thrown in. I had great fun with clothes and my lifestyle lent itself to my indulgences. Now my budget is nowhere what it used to be, plus I have nowhere to where them, but if those two things were fixed... Yes! I'd wear a lot of those clothes... Just not so many prints. Too busy for me.

  12. I get my inspiration from other bloggers and magazines. But I always stay close to my own style and not copy exact. I am falling in love with the maxi dress!

  13. No 3 may be but the rest are not for me. X x

  14. Being a short person -- I don't see anything here that I would wear. It would all overwhelm me....and not my style anyway.

  15. No I don't think I would wear it. Looks like prison wear.
