The Illusion of Pants with Built-in Shoes//Iro Imis Jersey Tee

The outfits that have the illusion of pants doubling as shoes, and vice versa, go into the category “Claire’s A1 A1 Gang Gang Looks”. I love a good trompe l’oeil. With this outfit, no one can really tell what is going on at the bottom half of the outfit. Where do the pants end and the shoes begin? Or are they seamlessly attached? The blurring of lines of once neatly-defined fashion items is a thing now with Vetements leading the pack. It just debuted a pant that *modestly* showcases your bare crack. No joke. Going back to seamless, some of my favorites are: red vinyl on red vinyl, black leather on black leather, denim on denim, or velour on velour. For this look, I did leather on leather with both pieces coincidentally from Zara. The pant is elongated by the boot of the same texture and color and also provides a bit of heel which is always a +++++. Zara always pulls with their pieces that look haute and fresh-off-the-runway but with one downside: they deteriorate easily. 🙁

A brief breakdown of my look- Tasteful x-mas colors featuring the Iro Imis jersey tee that is quite frankly one of my new pieces given its versatility, along with this new jacket I picked up from the LF store a few weeks back but haven’t worn until recently…Note to LF: Please open an online store, it would make everyone happier and drive more sales and traffic to you, so I don’t really see a problem there…If anyone has an answer to that, plmk.

Praise the beginning of spring, which was something like an extension of winter, but nevertheless, alas mid-April and its sporadic 90 degree weather in New England…
