    Love the ‘do and glasses in the first photo. The boots are great in the second, too!

    Monochrome is fantastic.

    i adore the woman’s look – practical, comfortable and dark but somehow she still manages to look very feminine with her smokey eye makeup!

    Very fine capture of the beauty of Grey.

    It’s funny…those pics are taken in NYC, but I do actually see a lot of similar looks in Copenhagen, Denmark (Europe).

    Again, love the layers! I like how her pants are bunched up in the last photo, the way the light catches the folds in the pant…love that! Love the rolled up pant and the fullness of the pant on the guy.

    Both look fantastic. I’m inspired to wear all grey today. And even though I’m not a big fan of trendy harem pants, I do like these toned down versions.

    Very nice layering and sunglasses on the gentlemen. The boots have that worn in look that all good boots should. My only gripe would be that the top block of his pants is unflattering creating a bit of a widened hips effect.

    These are universal urbanites, probably working in the creative sector. The ‘uniform’ is updated in the details. The trousers, the glasses. Love how he has closed his cardigan only high up.

    He’s the perfect example of how you don’t even need color to make an outfit interesting… the layers and textures here are enough. Plus the details: the glasses and the cuffed pants showing his boots. So sexy!

    I see the woman in this photo has rolled her pants legs above her boots for a motor-cycle-pants look, yes?

    This layered look is in contrast with the blue-white-cream look above …

    Layering works so well this time of year as we hover between winter and spring … there is a comfort in knowing we will always be cozy … despite the temps …

    Hannelore Knuts!!! Stunning beauty! So happy to see her featured. She seems every bit as cool off the runway as as on it. Love the tone, texture, and proportion. I’m terribly biased towards this aesthetic. Her outfit is 11 out of 10, even if it would have been worn by someone else.

    Sart! You’re rocking hardcore lately.

    Both are quite appealing, stylish and comfortable-looking.
    I like the girl’s ensemble very much. I think it takes a tall person to pull off this look, and she does it so well.

    I love the woman’s look here. While it would be wonderful for my current lifestyle, I just don’t have her wonderful attitude. I tend more toward conservative suits, very dressy–remember that woman in Italy some months ago, eating an apple? But I no longer spend my days in front of a camera, or shopping, or telling other well-dressed people what to do. I run after kids, little ones, and I need to be fast. No wobbling on high heels. I am studying this woman’s look to learn. I think I would feel sloppy–I would have buttoned that cardigan more, but she looks good as is. Oh, Sart, you are beyond fashion, right to existentialism.

    Nice photos. But I’m absolutely sick of Redwing boots (and copies thereof) worn by urban professionals in NYC, as if workman’s boots from the 1930s are supposed to fashionable today. Give me a freakin’ break. Enough already.

    The lady is sporting an acceptionally tight and cohesive look. I’ve really been digging the hoodie+cardigan combo as of late and it looks especially chic underneath the bomber. Just a wonderfully cozy yet edgy ensemble. Great shot!

    Masculine, feminine. Who cares? She looks great.

    Laguana Beach Trad: Get a grip. This is NYC. Since we actually walk a lot in all kinds of weather and often don’t have cars we have more need for work boots than anyone but actual work boot required workers. Getting around this city is hell on shoes and feet. (I try to have compassion for the idiots walking around in blizzards with 4 inch heels.)

    Her looks kind of industrial but its interpreted in a more imaginative and wearable way. She really gets into character with the dyed hair, eye makeup and glasses (although those may have been actually prescribed, there stylish glasses, nevertheless! :). She looks sharp! I like her style, its very cool and its a refreshing look. :)
