Celeb Trend We Don't Recommend: Suit Jackets as Dresses

Posted on

Yes, Miley Cyrus started it, but Kim Kardashian and Fergie are old enough to know better: a jacket is not a dress!

Both the reality starlet and the Black Eyed Peas singer stepped out last week wearing the same extra-long double-breasted black blazer with gold buttons and satin detail on the collar. Kardashian wore hers sans undershirt (and plus ankle-strap heels) to a Palladium Collection by Jacob & Co. launch party in N.Y.C., while Fergie tried the look with a T-shirt and pumps at a Case-Mate event in the Big Apple.

There’s an obvious reason as to why this look doesn’t quite work — the fact that pants aren’t involved — but it’s just not the most flattering garment we’ve ever seen, either. Both Kardashian and Fergie have fabulous figures that deserve to be well swathed — not covered in somewhat shapeless suit coats.

Don’t get us wrong — we’re all for menswear as womenswear — but maybe next time these stars want to take a risk, they can try tailored suits, sexy vests over low-cut blouses or edgy minis with masculine details. We know they can both do it. Tell us: Do you like Kardashian and Fergie in these suit coats? Would you ever try this look?
