Most people were surprised to discover that Carly Rae Jepsen — the singer of “Call Me Maybe,” this summer’s most bubblegum tune — is 26. Now, 26 is far from being old, but “Call Me Maybe” admittedly sounds like a song that would come from a teenage Disney star. And now Jepsen seems to be going along with the “act younger” routine with a schoolgirl dress and sneakers. So is this a cute outfit, or does she need to dress more her age?
Frankly, I don’t really mind when people dress a bit younger than others think they should. If you feel confident in a varsity jacket and cheerleader skirt, go for it! Jepsen could be dressed like an extra in “Baby One More Time” and I wouldn’t care.
The only problem is, I really don’t like this dress! The black band hits at an awkward place, and plaid just isn’t an appealing print for me. At all. (I blame all the years of wearing hideous plaid skirts at Catholic school.) Sorry Carly, I like your song, but not this outfit!
Hit or miss, Lovelies?
