Okay, so some of you may agree with me, some of you may not. Here is where we draw the line of two kinds of ladies in the world:
Those in favor of the wear-your-coat-on-your-shoulders-because-you-saw-Kim K-do-it-so clearly-you-have-to
All those average normal ladies who can freaking appreciate the meaning of wearing-your-coat-like-a-human-should-because-its-*FFING-cold sometimes.
I know,I know, I know; we are going into the summer season, and don’t worry I have a thought for the latest summer trends as well, but can we please just talk about this for a hot second. WHO in the freaking fashion billion dollar industry, decided it is cool & trendy to wear your billion dollar coat casually thrown about your shoulders as if you were too messed up or lazy to find it’s well sewn arm holes at 6:00pm on a Wednesday??
True, fashion sometimes is not all about practicality, and as an artist of sorts, I can support such matters, however this trend just grinds my north eastern jersey bred winter girl gears. Have you even lived a full North Eastern Winter, NYFW goers? Have you?!…we are not known for the most romantic scenery of sorts anywhere from December-April/May. So with that in mind, why on this earth are we not wearing our coats to their full potential?
Aimee, I love your style so so much and I admire your fashion blogging career, but would you honestly not be more comfortable wearing your perfect coral leather jacket displaying the fit the way it was MADE to be worn? Like maybe you did put your arms in the holes after the camera shot this…I hope.
LITERALLY ^ this girl is wearing a fur layer under her exterior jacket layer. That just sounds like a lot of effort no?
I just…don’t understand.
Finally, this trend has actually gone to the extend that somewhere out there a designer discovered they could make a jacket *~appear~* as though the coat was draped ever so nonchalantly, and so the cape blazer was born.
I don’t know about you all, because this seems to have been a trend that set sail before I could climb on board the ship, but this trend is one I am hoping will not remain popular among the fashion forward community.
In the words of the famous Edna Mode, “NO CAPES.”
That is all.
What do you guys think? Are you team cape jacket, or are you team arms exist? Let me know, real talk.
