WATCH: Did Sarah Palin Wear A Bathrobe On Fox News?
There are certain rules, so they tell you, for what one should and shouldn’t wear on television. Solids are good, as are darker colors and flattering cuts like v-necks. White is definitely a no-no, same goes for patterns and busy prints. But where does a fuzzy, red, rosette-textured holiday jacket fall on the spectrum of TV-appropriate? That is the question begged by Sarah Palin’s appearance on Sean Hannity last night.
Is it a bathrobe? (It looks comfy!) Is it a blood-stained polar bear pelt? (Unlikely.) One thing is for sure: it was a conscious decision. Palin offered her thoughts on this year’s stable of GOP candidates from a holiday-ready living room complete with a fireplace and well-lit Christmas tree. And what goes better with a Christmas-y living room than a shawl-collared holiday jacket?
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work quite so well on TV. This, sartorially speaking, is what we like to call going rogue.
