Dressed for: High Drama

I have a few dramatic pieces in my wardrobe, and when I trot them out I generally do it one at a time. But this unique top and these voluminous pants just seemed made for each other. Plus I’d been looking for a way to combine black, white, and orange in a single outfit, and since these pants beg to be belted they seemed the perfect choice.

    You had me at “High Drama.” High drama being my favorite type of drama. I think I need to wear more dramatic stuff to work – this outfit of yours and a recent outfit of Serene’s have both convinced me.

    You look amazing.

    I love the pants and an excellent look. Red, black and white would be one of my favorite color combinations.

    Those trousers are always incredible, but the top just takes them to a whole new level of gorgeous. This is an outfit that would look right at home in the pages of Vogue.

      So true, Megan! A Vogue ensemble is *exactly* what I see here. Gorgeous, Sal!

    Awesome outfit, Sal! Those pants just scream “authority” in the most badass kind of way. Love the striped top.

    this outfit makes your waist look tiny… and oh so cool with short hair.

  • Lisa

    You look exceptionally artsy in this outfit. Heck, you could be a Broadway actress! :D

    Wow! Drama indeed! Those pants are fabulous and how you pulled off orange-and-black without even a whiff of Halloween is beyond me!

  • Bubu

    Fantabulous. Wow. You look like tango and Alvin Ailey and the 1920s and just everything cool and chic all rolled into one.

    I think wide pants are so glamorous.

    you already have an amazing waist, but this outfit makes it look itty-bitty. i generally cannot stand pants like those (too much fabric around each leg, i would rather wear a maxi skirt and have half the fabric to deal with) but i love this look on you.

    I love this look on you! It’s different than your normal range of dresses but it speaks volumnes! Drama is right in the best possible way- I love the fullness of the pants, the classic slim lines of the top and the very classic stripes in the perfect for any occasion red/black/white combo. Lovely!

  • Sam

    That blouse. WHAAAAAT.

  • Angela

    This outfit is PERFECTION. You look like a million bucks!

    This is so striking, Sal! I love it!

  • Denise Greenberg

    LOVE this outfit, and love the way you’re wearing it. I adore orange, but prefer to wear it in accessories, not at my face – this is a wonderful way “orange,” and I plan to steal your idea ASA humanly P.

    Wow, this look is stunning, Sal! Every single element is just perfect.
