Wanted to share this but forgot but was reminded by The First Lady's Fashion Disaster thread.

Last week Blake Lively mismatched a men's shirt with a skirt and was caught with the bottom of the shirt sticking out.

I think it looks quite fashionable for a one-off ensemble though am quite undecided about the shirt sticking out? Overall I feel the outfit was executed fairly well.

Although Lively has managed to secure praise for her style over the past few years without the help of a stylist, last night's outfit suggests she can't always get it right.

When asked for her fashion secret recently, Lively admitted it was exposure to the fashion shows which helped inspire her style.

I wouldn't call it atrocious, but it would have looked better without the hem showing. She can get away with a lot because she is young and lovely, and she has a great body. The outfit looks fun and otherwise great.

The peeking hem reminds me of when girls wear cutoff jeans so short that the pockets hang out the bottom.

The outfit would have been adorable had Blake worn a boys' styled button-up made for women and a properly fitted belt, but that hem and the weirdly loose tying of the belt destroyed the look. (Julia, I hate the inside pocket showing on shorts look--thanks for reminding us about it! I haven't seen a pair of shorts like that since the late '90s or early '00s, but Blake's shirt certainly is reminiscent of those pockets.)

I usually like her style....

Like the skirt with the boots...

The belt I would like separately with a plain white shirtdress maybe...

The shirt I would like separately but only for casual "out-and-about" wear...

And other than that.....she is still young and beautiful (which makes up for an occasional "miss")

I forgot about that and that look always appeared trashy to me. Why not just snip off the pockets if one is to dare to wear such short shorts?

On Blake, the peeking shirttails emphasize how tightly the shirt is pulled down. It looks a little too taut. I think she should have bloused it a bit.
