Selena is usually known for her tasteful choice of stylish outfits, but her most recent ensemble might be a little too modern for the usually trendsetting star. Is this look chic or way too busy?

The lovely Selena Gomez certainly keeps us on our toes when it comes to her fashion choices, but while vising Good Morning America on April 25 in NYC, the starlet’s belly baring look was more of a fashion miss than her usual hit!

Selena Gomez’s Peplum Look

While the peplum trend is still a hit for spring, the 20-year-old starlet further dressed up the playful look by donning the trend in a chic black and white jacket, that highlighted the star’s tiny midriff with matching patterned pants by Peter Pilotto. The look was bold all in itself and certainly played up the star’s more adult image with a feminine touch. While the get-up was tastefully sophisticated alone, this outfit could be a tad too busy for the young star.

Too Much Black And White?

Selena took a brave risk by trying to balance both the demurring aspects of the look with the coy girly touches. The colors have a classic feel, but between the bare belly and the peplum detailing, there was too much structure and not enough movement in the look. While there was glamorous potential within the creation, I would have rather seen the beauty don the midriff baring jacket with a solid pair of black trousers.

Selena’s outfit certainly carries out a more tasteful, adult feel, but the young starlet should embrace her feminine curves and accentuate her young, trendsetting style. While this is a more refined look for the star, we hope to see more modern, age appropriate ensembles in the future.
