Outfit Feedback, Questions & Answers

Clunky Boots, Sweater Game & Long Pants

This article is part of my Outfit Feedback series.

This is a great fall outfit. The colors and fit of everything are spot on! You mixed textures perfectly -the key is mixing textures with similar fabric weights. Normally, I always recommend sticking with 3 colors max, but think of gray as a neutral (like black and white) so it doesn’t count here. Gray, green, navy and brown make a great color palette.

My Critique

  • The boots are definitely not clunky with your slim pants.
  • Mixing textures is a good thing – it wouldn’t look as great if you had a super chunky thick sweater with this outfit.
  • Overall amazing outfit and great job!

 

Great sweater choice! I love the first outfit in terms of the color palette and what you paired your gray sweater with. Overall, great job with the fit of both shirts – they are the perfect length and amount of exposed shirt cuff. Jeans fit great and have the perfect hem!

My Critique

  • Black sweater is too big.
  • Jeans and shoes in the second outfit are too light for what’s going on with the upper half.

How To Fix

  • Exchange the black sweater for a size small.
  • Switch the pants in the second outfit for a dark wash or black jean.
  • Try a dark pair of sneakers or boots for the second outfit.

 

Love the black and white color scheme. In terms of your jeans, this is a great fit in the legs. Overall, with a few minor adjustments this can be a great outfit.

My Critique

  • The fit of your shirt is a bit too long in the torso and sleeves – it makes you look like you have a long torso and short legs.
  • Jeans are too long – they’re making your legs look short right now.

How To Fix

  • Try sizing down or switching to a shirt that is a bit shorter.
  • Jeans need to be hemmed to a slight or full break.

 

Love the brown boots and sneakers here. Great leather jacket as well – I would keep it unzipped because it breaks up your body vertically, allowing you to look sharper. The most important thing with clothing is to make sure that you understand what the right fit is for your body type. With that being said, here are my critiques and solutions:

My Critique

  • Pants are too slim.
  • Zipping up your jacket will create a swath of fabric which makes you look larger than you may be.

How To Fix

  • Switch your pants to a straight fit instead of a tapered fit.
  • Leave your jacket unzipped.

The fit of your sweater and shirt are great – specifically the length. The sweater should hit the belt area and the shirt should hit mid-crotch, which they do here. I love the color of the pants, but this outfit could also look great with a nice pair of dark wash jeans. Lastly, I love the clean low profile of the sneakers.

My Critique

  • Pant’s are too baggy and long – you should only be able to pinch, at the most, 1 inch of fabric on either side of your thighs.

How To Fix

  • Buy slimmer fitting pants.
  • Get your pants slimmed and hemmed to a slight break.
