If you’ve been scrolling through YouTube lately, you’ve probably seen this kind of challenge before. Many people are challenging their friends and family members to pick out outfits for them without their help. I decided to challenge both my sister and friend to try and pick out an outfit for me. Did they succeed? Let’s find out!
To start off with, I want to say that this whole outfit was picked out in Forever 21. This also explains why I’m in a dressing room and why these photos aren’t the best quality. Sorry for all this, but it adds to the mystery of whether or not I bought the outfit!
My sister originally picked out the overall dress, and then both of them decided that they would base the rest of the outfit around this piece. The dress is made from a black corduroy material and has two little pockets at the front. The dress zips up and has a little snap closure at the top to cover the zipper. As you can see in the first photo, it is a little bit roomy but it’s because it’s meant to have an oversized fit.
I’m not going to lie, I actually picked out the shoes next while they were trying to find a shirt to go under the outfit. This was the only pair of shoes that I could find where I thought that they might be okay with this look. The rest of the shoes in the store were too busy looking or just didn’t make sense for the outfit. I’m going to say how I liked the shoes now since I picked them out. They definitely weren’t the most comfortable. They weren’t terrible, but I could tell that the quality of them wasn’t great. Looking back at them, I like the shoes even less than I did when I originally tried them on. I ended up not buying the pair for these reasons.
Lastly, they picked out this red shirt to go under the overalls. Online, this top is described as a plum color, but it really is a burgundy shade and doesn’t have purple undertones. It has this mock neck top to it and lace up details in the back. It’s also ribbed.
Now, how did I think they did? I honestly thought they did very well! As mentioned above, the shoes weren’t great but they still looked alright with the outfit. As for the dress and top together, I think it would be a really cute fall outfit. The top looked alright under the overalls, but I couldn’t see myself getting that much use out of it in the future. Personally, I think the crossed detail at the back is too much since it’s already a mock neck top. Besides that though, the shirt still did look nice with the overalls. The overall dress was my favorite part! I think they did really well picking these out. I loved how casual it was while still looking very put together. I was able to clearly picture myself putting several of my tees under it during both warmer and colder days. My sister actually ended up buying me it as a birthday gift for next month because I loved it so much!
In general, I did not expect them to do this well! I’ll link every single item down below in case you’d like to pick up any items mentioned.
P.S. This whole outfit was under $65!
