Is there a REASON shirts have to try to be windows? Can we just build some more of them that are made of ACTUAL fabric and not pieces of a mosquito tent?
Without the sheer, she would look totally cute, albeit unremarkable. Which maybe is the point of the sheer. To get remarks.
Actually, and surprisingly, I don’t mid the sheer so much as the jacket that’s three sizes too small. Also, I HATE rolled up jeans.
I can’t help it…I love this look. I like the black with the brown, the cropped jacket with the sheer under it, the straight but not skinny pant rolled up. I think she looks cool and relaxed.
If she were wearing a full camisole instead of a regular bra, this could actually pass. These ladies need to remember that all undergarments are not created equal, and that they need to pick the right one for the right job. Lillian Gish used to say a lady was one who never showed her underpants on purpose. I’m sure if she were alive today, she would expand that thought to include all manner of foundation garment.
aww she’s got a stain on her shirt. i give her a pass.
Yeah, that got my sympathy too. I still think it’s a silly outfit, but that is SO the kind of thing that would happen to me! You think you’re safe having an iced coffee (or whatever) in the car on the way… you’re being careful with it… then the OUTSIDE drips all over you.
i am totally incapable of staying clean and polished looking. i don’t even know why i think i have any right to comment on anyone’s attire on this website. heh.
From the plethora of “likes” that got, I think you have plenty of company!
And yes I was one of them… I’m not very good at it either.
In this instance I don’t really mind the sheer. But it might be because Shailene already gets the Sandra Bullock treatment from me wherein I’m always just happy to see her because she seems really cool/down to earth/blah blah that I find myself nodding while thinking, “You know, I see where she was going with that. Lookin’ good, as always, Shailene.”

We don’t, always — but I promise we ALWAYS tell you if we’re having trouble being unbiased.
MAJOR agreement on the shirts-as-windows thing. I keep thinking I missed a memo about it being totally cool to wear a sheer shirt with just a bra underneath.
Fug the top half and fab (actually, more of just a big like) for her jeans with those shoes. The bottom half is kind of cute.
I’ve seen worse. And I think that just may be the way that the kids are dressing these days. It’s not the way that I would choose to dress, but I don’t want to age myself by yelling the fashion equivalent of “You kids get off my lawn!”.
Just because it’s fashionable doesn’t mean it looks good. If this were a pro white broadcloth shirt, she’d be totally killing it. I like the menswear-inspired look and this has the framework of a good idea but the execution blows.
Granted that I’m probably a contemporary of her parents, but I don’t understand why sheer shirts exist at all. There is a very limited number of people in any woman’s life who need OR want to see her undies and neither one’s bra-fitter nor one’s lover really wants to do their stuff at an LA Film Festival photocall.
Garrrgh! My kingdom for an edit function. I meant to type ” a proper white broadcloth shirt”.
Agree – if she wore a camisole under it or it weren’t sheer, it would be a cute casual look. I can’t co-sign the sheer but I dig it otherwise.
This DOES NOT deserve a fugging.
I like it! She looks cute!
This is cute, I just don’t like those particular jeans.
I think it’s all really cute.
I don’t mind the sheer because the jacket covers up enough to keep it classy. I think she looks cute.
I know you guys have no control over the ads that show up on the sidebars… but someone has to fug this horrible American Apparel ad. The girl in the striped bathing suit giving herself a wedgie in a sun-dappled field. With sideboob.
