Couplet oaf composed is inappropriate (3,2,5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

out of place

Here is my best explanation:

'inappropriate' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'couplet oaf composed' is the subsidiary indication.

'composed' is an anagram indicator.

'couplet'+'oaf'='coupletoaf'

'coupletoaf' anagrammed gives 'outofplace'.

'is' is the link.

(Another definition for out of place that I've seen is "Not suited to the occasion".)
