    The skirt might be nice with a white shirt in the summer, but the whole things…….baffles me. The shoes too.

    Sorry. But I like how you prob. made her day by taking her pic!

    The combination is really daring – not sure at first – but the more you look at it the more you see the way the patterns work play together. Great simple accessories which balance it out!

    Refreshing to see something other than the typical long-legged, flat-stomach, long-haired beauties. Anyone could wear the neutral ensemble posted here a couple posts back, but it's only "stylish" because of the woman's looks, right? This to me is much more interesting!

    funny but this image seems to go with the shots from the Chanel show….to me, it shows that you can have a subtle and complex eye for color, pattern,texture and compose your look around those elements even if you're not in the position to have Karl dress you!
    The feeling carries over…

    The pink in her shoes picks up the pink in her scarf. The pineapple with the gingham is very down home, and then add in the matching black socks and bag — it's all very well crafted, including that lovely shock of color against the black of her red hair. The more I look; the more I like. Thank you!

    The skirt is a Comme des Garcons Black. The print is not my cup of tea even though I'm a CDG fan myself, but I think she pulls it off quite well.

    I don't like it.. it's not the patterns or colors mix.. it's the whole proportion of her figure.

    The head looks so small in proportion to the bag, skirt and legs.

    I think this is kinda cute actually, it reminds me of what kids in high school over in the Bay Area wear. Ballerina shoes, crazy patterns, a scarf, business man-like shirt, and dyed hair to top it off.

    Too many things going on for my liking. Although she has balls. I would never go out looking like that. Maybe if the skirt was a solid white pant I could like the outfit a little more.

    Love the pop of color from the scarf.

    The scale and proportion are all wrong. The silhouette is basically a little ball (her head) on top of a triangle. The silhouette gets so wide at the bottom. Would work better if she lost the scarf. She has a short neck already & the scarf makes it disappear. And the skirt should be replaced by short shorts, or a mini.

    I think this photo is a huge question to fashion. If Kate Moss was wearing it everybody would love it.
    Anyhow, as many times has been said, fashion is not the same as style, and I cant find much of that either. She doesnt look comfortable on that.

    Goood! I have nothing else but to kill myself because I don't get it! I mean I like the way she dressed – it is strange but in a magical way is pretty – but HOW! How could I make my mind create the looks like this? How? I am sure I could never combine all those separate clothes items in one ensemble. I can only copy the look, but it's impossible for me to create it myself. It is sad. I am sad.

    I do remember the perfect words of Bobby McFerrin said on his concert here in Ukraine. Somebody asked him what is his breathing technique, and he replied
    "my breathing technique? breath musically". Charming, don't you think?

    Regarding the above I'd like to ask what's this gilr's dressing technique? :) How could I learn to dress stylishly? :) Yeah, this is a rhetorical question. I am hopeless.

    This look is puzzling. I get the mixed pattern and how the overall look is so daring, but to me it raises the question of style, and how a great style comes not from following every trend, but from knowing what really suits you — inside and out. The inside part, she's got it right on: the one thing that this outfit doesn't lack of has to be personnality! But to me the outside part seems to be the problem here: style is also about knowing how to find the right pieces to complement your figure, how to build interesting proportions, right?
    Anyway, wouldn't throw this look — at all. But the wonders a belt and a shorter skirt (with the same pattern) would do to her!

  67. Melissa

    I think the patterns are fun, but she needs to learn to dress to her body shape. A skirt that cuts off mid thigh is going to make a short girl look even shorter – which is does here, and it makes her legs look chubby. Love the scarf, the jacket and the bag, but I'm not feeling this length skirt on her.

    Wow, everyone. Who cares if it doesn't "suit" her body type? She very obviously dressed this way to cultivate a specific look. The beautiful thing about true style is the diversity and uniqueness it perpetuates, not whether the person looks sexy, thin, "in season" or whatever else. Much applause to this lovely lady.

    I love a bit of controversy about a person's outfit. After all, the art of dressing should evoke some conversation, not a lock step hooray. Of course dressing this way will not be everyone's cup of tea, but that's the beauty of it. If you saw her walk down the street my guess is you would notice her, and then smile. Isn't that better than being just another nondescript face in the crowd?

    So what if I don't think this outfit flatters her body shape/fits this fall's prescribed wear? She has style, and that is something very hard to capture in a photo. Fashion can be photographed without any problem; you can show off how a certain cut or pattern gives a certain impression or shape to something. But someone's style is not so easy to capture. She's got mad guts, and a good eye for what she'd need to wear to let people know "I *meant* to dress like this," not leaving them thinking she just walked into a hurricane of clothing.

    I dig it.

    I think this outfit would be amazing if she left off the scarf-
    3 different black and white prints, all in different proportions topped with fire red hair— i love it.
    I love the idea of the pink shoes with the outfit but, i think bc of her red hair it comes off as distracting to me.
    this outfit would have been totally noteworthy, minus the scarf and with black ot RED/BROWN oxfords.
    I do appreciate seeing a different body type represented.
    It is funny that everyone seems to be assuming she is an "everyday girl" and there was a comment about how having her picture taken "made her day".
    I have a feeling that she is very well educated/cultured influencer with an artistic flare and having her picture taken probably ment very little to her.

    It's certainly brave, and I applaud the mixing of prints, but somehow she still looks like a hot mess. I think it's the proportions. Skirt a little too full, bag echoes the skirt's slouchy dowdy feel (but would look great paired with other items), the jacket seems likely too small to meet… she just looks like she got dressed by raiding a stranger's laundry line to me.

    Her style is cute, daring and interesting.

    I need to rant for a bit.
    I cannot believe some of the comments I read about this woman.
    I can't believe that there are people (mostly 'anonymous')who have the audacity to:

    a) Nitpick and tear apart her outfit. IE unflattering,not stylish, not fashion..

    b) Comment on what she should wear/do instead. IE heels, shorter skirt, remove the scarf.

    If you are a person who believes in expressing personal style, but brazenly nitpick and critique a strangers outfit (without their knowledge and permission). Then you do not embrace the spirit of personal style, you are just imposing your taste and standards on other people.

    I find it incredibly obnoxious and unfair.
    She is wearing the outfit, not you. These are her clothes not yours. It is no ones business to tell her how to dress.

    I admit was guilty of doing this before. I stopped because I realized how hurtful it can be.

    I wish everybody would stop doing this. It would make everyone a lot less self conscious and make
    fashion a lot more fun. Especially for people who are intimidated by it.

    Sorry everyone for the rant.

    Do you want us all to just praise this woman on her style? I mean style is based on opinion. What one person likes another might hate.

    This is a fashion blog after all, and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Although I must agree some of the comments are a bit harsh, but to each their own.
