If this is on trend I'm still not buying it

The outfit on Q front page showing white sneakers with black leggings and black flowered full length tunic is odd to me.  I am in a small community but frequently go to Phoenix and Vegas and I've never seen anybody wearing a similar getup.  The only appropriate venue for this IMO would probably be a very very conservative community and probably that community would be in another community.

As all of the bloggers have been saying, buy a small piece related to a trend if you like it, but it's a "pass" if you don't.  

 

No way I'm carrying a round handbag like a hat box.  Talk about dated!

A lot of things are being recycled as new trends...like the huge bell-bottom jeans, very full palazzo pants, and fussy-looking blouses. I didn’t like them before, and I won’t be wearing them now.

Was not what I was expecting!!

I tend to agree.  However, I will say that, if I WERE to wear this, I would probably choose black ballet flats. I could never pull this off and people would think I left the shoes I meant to wear at home!

I'm not a white sneakers fan and the dress over the leggings is just too long.

It looks like pajama pants and flowered robe.  I wouldn't wear that out in  public.

 Go to New York City, and you will see this and more. The look is not unusual at all, in fact when I was young my Aunt wore a similar look. She just wore it with a heel instead of the sneaker.

Re: If this is on trend I'm still not buying it

I know several women who dress just like this. Long pants and a long skirt over. Some were born here, some weren't.

 

They dress in overlapping layers to ensure modesty at all times, which is a priority in their life. And yes, they blend patterns and colours together in atypical ways.

 

I didn't give that photo a 2nd thought until I saw this thread.

In a word: Ugh.

NO WAY WILL I wear white sneakers (trainers in Europe) with anything.
