  2. The top I like, with slimmer bottoms. Not sure what you call what the mannequin is wearing for pants, but I would not wear those. To me, they look silly, and do zero to flatter the figure! I think the bottoms have spoiled the overall look.

    1. interesting. i like the pants and have a few like this from 'oh my gauze'. don't like the top at all. the style is fine, but the print is like something you'd find on a sofa!

  3. No -- I would feel like a clown in this....but, I can think of a few ladies who could pull this off.....maybe

  4. Although the colors and pattern of the top are very pretty and I like the red/orange color of the pants, I could not wear this. I prefer a more fitted shape to my pants and a top that doesn't get so wide at the hips and thighs. This outfit would fit and look like a glorified potato sack on me. I would certainly have a good laugh in the fitting room with this!

  5. No, I can't see myself wearing it. I don't like the top with the pants, but I think the top would look a lot better with different pants/leggings. I don't think the colors of the top would look very good on me either. Finally, from the picture, the material looks pretty stiff. If the top were a bit more flowy, I would like it better I think.

    Have a great day!

  6. Looks like something out of The King and I. LOL Fun, but wouldn't do anything for my figure.

  7. I agree with all the comments above. The colours/pattern of the top are okay, but the fabric looks stiff and uncomfortable. The pants are just NO! I don't think the shape would flatter anyone and I definitely wouldn't wear that colour with that top.

  8. Not even at gunpoint. I have been following older women on instagram and they are all over the place. Some simply out there, like I'm old I dare you to criticize me...to things Pam wears which are lovely, to things made at arts and crafts class. I am finding my style, its not easy, but it is there

  9. This outfit is beyond hideous!!!!! For me, worthwhile clothes have movement, flow and versatility. They compliment or enhance the wearer but never dominate. Donna's gunpoint comment works for me!

  10. Ni, I can't imagine wearing it! The pants would not flatter me at all. I actually prefer a more fit look, both for pants and tops. Also, the color of the pants are too wild for me. OK for the young group maybe, but at my age it would look silly. Thanks Pam for another fun post.

  11. I second Donna's comment... Not even at gunpoint. I don't think anyone looks good in cropped pants, harem or balloon pants.

  12. Absolutely not. If I was tall and thin, why hide it under this? As I am not tall or thin, this would just make me look like a giant balloon. I am just curious, which store used this as an example of spring style?

    1. Nope...no joke...I found it on a mannequin in a department store.

  14. No because I am 5' tall and they would not look good on me. Love the colors.

  15. It doesn't even flatter the tall, skinny mannequin.

    Sorry, they should have saved this look for April 1st.

  16. No....too poofy in all the wrong places.

  17. I like the colors and the pattern of the top ... but that is about all that is good about this outfit. The fabric of the top looks too stiff ... can't imagine how it would feel when sitting down. And, those pants??? Maybe would be cute on children.

  18. I wear many variations of similar look though not such bright colours and probably better materials and certainly a better execution (the top). they are usually made of linen/viscose/silk and they are actually very floaty. I buy my mainly from OSKA (German) Masai (Danish), or Sahara (UK); or make Marcy Tilton patterns. I wear them with my Doc Martens in the cold months and Birkenstocks in the summer.

  19. No I would not wear these trousers. I don't think they are very flattering. The top and necklace are great though.

  20. It looks like a pregnant clown ... from The King and I (as Rebecca noted, above). I love the previous answers and got a good laugh from Donna's "not even at gunpoint" comment. Karen was right: it seems like an April's Fool Day joke. Thanks for sharing this. I'm sure we all feel just a wee bit more stylish now!

  21. No. I would never wear this outfit. I can't get past the ridiculous silhouette.

  22. I think the pants could be really great with the right top (shorter, fitted) and funky shoes. I wouldn't wear them in red, but black maybe blue or gray.

  23. I love the look as art. I do. ... but my apple shape doesn't work with it.

  24. No, it looks like couch upholstery fabric to me (the top), and can't imagine wearing the pants at all. Not flattering to my shape

    ReplyDelete
  25. Only if I could wear curly toed slippers and a fez with it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I would wear the pants probably with a black top with peplum and black lace-up heels. I might add a thin gold chain necklace with a coin charm. The top is interesting. The pattern is not an issue for me, but the shape is not for me.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Not my cup of tea! I am round enough without balloon pants! The top might look ok with skinny jeans but I don't wear that type of sleeve.

    ReplyDelete
  28. All proportions are wrong - blue top is large on the hips with florals..then the red harem pants large at the end together with a very strange length - no thank you

  29. Pam I came over to see this posting, which I had missed last week.
    I just cannot believe what these retailers are thinking. I rarely shop these days and this is an example of why! I admit I like more classic styles; however I do occasionally step outside the box.
