Restyling The Bachelorette

I have a confession to make. I have been watching The Bachelor (and Bachelorette… and Bachelor in Paradise) since 2012. I started watching my senior year of high school and got hooked. It was a fun distraction and the drama was always entertaining. I’m not much of TV watcher. I usually catch up on shows on Netflix, but I haven’t been able to stop my Monday night tradition of watching The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. I always love looking at the fashion of the lead and the contestants. The show has featured some beautiful outfits and overall good style. However, the fashion in Katie’s season caught my attention for the wrong reasons. I enjoyed Katie’s season, so this is nothing against her or her personal style. I have picked some of Katie’s worst outfits and restyled them to what I think would have been more flattering. On to outfit # 1!

I found the green t-shirt and dark wash skinnies to be a bit plain and unflattering: Instead, I chose a tighter fitting slightly cropped ribbed t-shirt with a lighter wash mom jean. I feel this silhouette would show off her figure so much better! I also added a pair of neutral sneakers and simple gold hoops to finish off the look.

Although this outfit isn’t terrible, it just feels a bit outdated. The pink shrug takes me back to when I was obsessed with Limited Too in the fifth grade. Instead of a shrug, I chose a floral dress with sleeves for modesty. For accessories, I think a simple gold chain necklace and stud earrings would look elegant and not distract from the dress. In Katie’s outfit, she wore simple strappy sandals that I thought looked great! I paired this outfit with a similar pair. Overall, I think this is a more flattering “meet the parents” look!

In my opinion, this outfit just doesn’t flow. The cut of the shirt jacket looks awkward with the style of the jeans. The shoes just feel like a random choice. I would restyle this look with a pair of slim fitting leather pants and a white turtle neck. I would also go with a similar shirt jacket but in a longer length. For shoes, I think a heeled bootie would polish off the look.

I hope you enjoyed this style recap! I am no fashion expert, nor do I think Katie has bad style! This is just how I would tweak some of my least favorite outfits to make them more flattering (in my opinion). Katie definitely donned a few stunning looks this season! What did you think of the style featured this season?
