November 22, 2008 at 8:22 am
love the jacket in the second pix. love your blog.xxx

The top lady, although french, looks so american… And, one question, is that hat in the middle pic a borsalino? I love it.Thank you!

I love the shirt in the second image – I’m really not the biggest fan of plaid but that looks so classic. Also the setting is beautiful and really compliments the shades in her outfit and her smile. I like how the lady in the first image has paired her shirt with dark wash jeans – it looks young but a little bit more sophisticated than lighter washes would.
November 22, 2008 at 9:11 am
Yes! It is finally getting chilly here in Paris and everyone is pulling out the plaid. I particularly love the second outfit, tres cool
November 22, 2008 at 9:21 am
just love the last look.
November 22, 2008 at 9:39 am
The blue pants are awesome!
November 22, 2008 at 9:49 am
First ensemble is ok…preppy, classic. Not sure about the old man clothing in the next two photos. But if you're young & cute, you can get away with more.

I definitely like this, even if it’s kind of uniform. After too many years of slip dresses, shrunken belly shirts and plumber-crack tight jeans, this look is asexual, slouchy, cool and anti-consumer (no giant status bags!) . You wonder what they’re reading and what they’re thinking rather than gauging their body parts. Plaid is rad.

i'm not overly impressed with any of these photos as stylish expressions of plaid. I think if you're going to wear plaid or tartan you should really go for it – take inspiration from D&G's fall/winter collection or look back to Alexander McQueen's Highland Rape collection or even at old photos of the Duke of Windsor. Plaid should be a statement, not a detail. Men in plaid or tartan trousers – fabulous. Check out http://www.dashingtweeds.co.uk some of the most interesting new suiting designs i've seen in ages!

Parisiennes just have style in them from birth. The first photo is magic.
November 22, 2008 at 10:11 am
sometimes fashion and its trends just don’t do it for me…plaids – NO THANK YOU!
November 22, 2008 at 10:21 am
call me boring, but i only love the first one.
November 22, 2008 at 10:46 am
I love the Sperrys on the last woman. In fact, I have the same exact ones and they’re great shoes. although mine have worn through the soles.
November 22, 2008 at 11:05 am
Love the first look. Almost reminiscent of a more polished/preppy Patti Smith. Not crazy about the last look :/
November 22, 2008 at 11:23 am
I love seeing this more American trend done in a high fashion but still casual way. My favorite is lady #1.
November 22, 2008 at 11:34 am
I love the second picture. She is a true Parisienne, she is able to wear masculine clothes and still look so incredibly feminine…compliments. Thank you Sart
November 22, 2008 at 11:51 am
love the plaid!
November 22, 2008 at 11:55 am
3 different characteres.I love them, especially the third lady. she’s got a very impressing attitude to wear all this masculin clothes.
November 22, 2008 at 12:13 pm
The first one: oh to look like that in jeans…sigh…
November 22, 2008 at 12:22 pm
love the ruffle detail on the first coat…..and the way the avenue of trees frames the second shot
The girl in the middle is my favorite. Warm colors and the hat tops the pic.well.
November 22, 2008 at 12:29 pm
love it…. three distinctive ways with a classic look.
is that a balenciaga jacket in the first pic?
November 22, 2008 at 12:30 pm
these remind me of a chan marshall look.
November 22, 2008 at 12:39 pm
I just adore the second look…and the trees in the background are lovely!
November 22, 2008 at 12:53 pm
love the color of the last plaid shirt!bright and nice!
November 22, 2008 at 12:55 pm
When I was in high school, my french teacher told us that gangs in Paris wore track suits as their “thug wear”. I wonder if the girl in the blue pants is in a Parisian gang?
November 22, 2008 at 12:58 pm
Oooh!! Love it!
November 22, 2008 at 1:09 pm
I love how the french do plaid, always so original.
November 22, 2008 at 1:34 pm
I like the second pic the most, she looks happy and is beaming…Like her hat a lot…looks like she really enjoys the attention…
I would choose the first outfit for myself but I would have opted for another colour of jacket ; bright red or an off white velvet one…
3rd picture : a no-no for me…her trousers remind me of an electricians outfit :-/
November 22, 2008 at 1:41 pm
I LOVE plaid shirts! And I’m really loving the last look; it’s so tomboy-ish, I can relate :D
life . style . dissected
November 22, 2008 at 1:53 pm
i love that i can live vicariously through your eyes! thank you for such lovely images, always.melissa
November 22, 2008 at 2:22 pm
I love the first shirt!
November 22, 2008 at 2:51 pm
the swagger of pic #3…YES!!!
November 22, 2008 at 3:03 pm
First photo:She is very cute and fresh. Pretty!
November 22, 2008 at 3:12 pm
I love the second one; the hat and the jacket are great
November 22, 2008 at 3:30 pm
I love those blue pants, they are nice.

November 22, 2008 at 4:25 pm
The second photo is gorgeous! Tartan is love in this period!
November 22, 2008 at 4:27 pm
Where I come from the ordinary plaid shirt is worn by suburban no-hopers and drug addicts – male and female – unfinished people really, nothing cool. So it’s strange to seem them worn like this. Apart from in the first photo, these shirts really don’t do anything for the wearer. I’m surprised they are even featured in this blog.
November 22, 2008 at 4:38 pm
paris is my love ♥
November 22, 2008 at 5:07 pm
first photo, géraldine – vogue paris?
-h of candid cool
November 22, 2008 at 6:22 pm
i personally dont wear plaid, but these 3 ladies wear it well in their unique way.
of course i like the paris vogue style the most, i love chic simplicity.
November 22, 2008 at 6:33 pm
LOVE the plaid! I am excited that I kept my thrift store find from a few years ago- a plaid Ralph Lauren shirt just like the one in the first pic!!!I continue to love your blog too ..great pics from RIO!

They all work.
I love the bright blue pants and socks to match.
November 22, 2008 at 8:21 pm
I love all the looks, but I just have to comment on the first woman’s hands- she has such beautiful hands! They almost don’t look real! Maybe a hand model- a la George Costanza.
November 22, 2008 at 8:52 pm
Love all three of these, but that third one is fantastic! She really pulls off the bright colours and those rad pants.
November 22, 2008 at 10:51 pm
I love the first two looks, although both seem more American than French. Un peu de Ralphe L’Orene?
November 22, 2008 at 11:11 pm
I love paris…love milan…but especially fond of Rio!
November 23, 2008 at 12:57 am
Geraldine is a hottie !
November 23, 2008 at 2:03 am
Nice fashion there. I want to try the no.3
November 23, 2008 at 2:30 am
i wish i could pull off bright blue pants..
November 23, 2008 at 4:00 am
The first picture is my favourite, I wish I could fit into my plaid shirt (too small atm), I’ve always liked a touch of plaid :)
November 23, 2008 at 7:29 am
Ahh the third lady is a friend of mine(she’s from Berlin)! Lady’s got style.
November 23, 2008 at 8:12 am
THE 3rd one looks awsome… she´s relaxed and she´s not trying hard on the look. besides the color of the background matches with the sneakers and socks. the blue pant it´s dramatic enough but yet sport. not trendy enough and timeless
November 23, 2008 at 8:31 am
WOWI really didnt think anyone would like the second outfit. But I was mistaken. I really think the second outfit lacks form and beauty. The pants and the shirt over it does nothing for her shape. The shoes looks like clogs. And the colors really dont match in my opinion. But I love the third pic. She looks great and her outfit makes a wonderful shape. First one is nice too.
November 23, 2008 at 9:07 am
the last 2 photos are great. seemingly what would be typical guy fashion those ladies managed to make it work. especially the lady in the middle picture.
November 23, 2008 at 10:55 am
these photos make me miss paris so much!

November 23, 2008 at 12:49 pm
All three are two ordinary, though the hat is a nice touch in the middle photo. They all need see the ladies in the photo above theirs for some wardrobe tips.
November 23, 2008 at 12:50 pm
the first look doesn’t appeal to me. her jeans are fighting that jacket and i dont like where it falls. her plaid is ok but the look is so boring. LOVE the next two… yesss to those blue pants.
November 23, 2008 at 3:13 pm
SECOND ONE!!! i love it.
okay i need to go recreate this look for myself now…
November 24, 2008 at 12:02 am
Second picture: White Capezios Trend?
I had a pair in the 80′s, should – I have resoled and not thrown them out?
November 24, 2008 at 3:54 am
Gentle reminder: the fact that a picture is taken in Paris does not mean that the person is French. Paris attracts people from everywhere in the world.
November 24, 2008 at 10:09 am
All beautiful! My favorite is the first one!
November 24, 2008 at 12:57 pm
Yay for plaid! These photos make me want to go into my husband’s closet and steal one of his shirts to wear, just like I used to do with my dad’s in highschool.
November 24, 2008 at 1:26 pm
Natural chic! the essential black-navy jacket!
November 24, 2008 at 4:38 pm
Sorry these plaids are 100% USA
November 24, 2008 at 4:49 pm
Tomboy love!!! The grizzly umberjacks are back in style… then again, were they ever out?!
November 24, 2008 at 5:37 pm
The second girl is a breath of fresh air! Lovely face with carefree classic style. Even if the pants are fit for someone much older, I like this unexpected choice. It desexes the outfit & makes her fit for boating in a revamped impressionist painting.
November 26, 2008 at 9:23 am
People, the third photo is the best. Look at her!
November 26, 2008 at 6:28 pm
I love the last picture! The blue jeans and the shirt is fantastic!
November 27, 2008 at 7:41 am
Loving the blue trousers.
November 27, 2008 at 9:10 am
My 17 year old, who is absolutely in love with flannel plaids (circa 1969 thru 1971) had two comments- 1st- woah- they are doing it with jackets.2nd- Whats up with the mc hammer pants! :D to each generation their own. And God Bless the child… Love it that you have these here sart. Any excuse to talk to my son about fashion is fabulous! Happy Thanksgiving!
November 28, 2008 at 7:03 am
I especially love the first photo, such a perfect blend between her clothing and facial features!
November 28, 2008 at 1:34 pm
I think I just fell in love with the woman in the first photo, wow – she’s very natural and sweet looking.
"the girl who ate everything and didnt even burp"
November 30, 2008 at 7:44 am
Oh plaids! Yaay I love them!
December 2, 2008 at 1:00 am
Somehow, the words “parisian” and “plaid” just don’t go together.
December 5, 2008 at 5:18 pm
SECOND ONE IS PERFECTION!
December 7, 2008 at 9:07 pm
I actually don’t like any of these outfits…its great photography but their style just isn’t doing anything for me…except maybe the top one.
December 11, 2008 at 7:03 pm
I love the plaid tops, but the blue pants in the bottom photo are WAY too much. The woman in the first photo where plaid the best, with that nice jacket.
December 12, 2008 at 7:21 pm
i LOVE the third one! there's something so wonderfully 90's r&b about it with an 80's hip hop funk twist. where does one buy pants like that?
October 16, 2009 at 10:28 am
so peace !
October 16, 2009 at 10:31 am
so 21's vintagei love it sssssssso much :)
