    I really like the way yellow and gray work with basic black and white. Looks good.

    LOVE that outfit!!
    the golden n yellow is a bit unusual..would have never thought of it ..and it looks lovely

    like loads of the previous pictures her sleeves too are rolled(??)
    i don’t really get it ,though I’m quite in favor of the pushes up sleeves..
    the cuff of her shirt is cute…
    (whys is the bag open)

    I love her shoes and that bag. She’s got nice legs…

    The bright yellow looks out of place to me but it looks great against the environment. Perhaps it adds a little flare and makes the outfit pop out a bit more against everything else.

    That bright yellow is actually the one color I dislike on clothing or on anything artificial (but not in nature–it’s alright on flowers). I don’t even know why I dislike it but I have read somewhere that people don’t recommend that yellow being painted on the walls of nurseries because it instigates conflict and distress. And isn’t yellow supposed to be a happy color? It’s funny how I hate it…but it looks good on her.

    How nice to see a woman close to my age looking so cool! This kind of woman inspires me to be creative with my clothes express my individual style. Thanks for this pic!

    Funny, as I was crocheting my fishnet thigh-highs last night, I thought to myself, “There is a certain beauty in the way the color beige transforms something ‘Madonna circa 1984′ into something fresh and lovely”.

    I love the idea of the cardigan/blazer. It’s easy and relaxed yet put together and office appropriate.

    I think the skirt, bag and shoes are fine together, and the cardigan and blouse are nice, but the two halves are not cooperating. I think it’s partly because all the black is relegated to the lower part of the outfit, and (mainly) that the bag and especially the shoes are too severe a counterpoint to the cute little cardigan. Two halves which would both be nice in other combinations.

    I like the contrast of the cardigan with the print on the skirt. The yellow detail makes the outfit pop since the outfit itself is conservative and flat.

    I love those shoes and I think I have a similar pair…but my pinky toe sticks out. It’s incredibly uncomfortable. I wonder if it is for her?

    The pop of lemon yellow she’s included is so understated but effective.

    Ooooh, she just works those color combos. That yellow is unexpected but completely transforms the outfit from blah to stunning.

    Awesome pairing of the citrus yellow and the pattern of her skirt – it’s so unexpected. It’s like how to have a high impact using understatement. Bag’s too big though, out of proportion. Inspiring photo nonetheless – thanks, Sart.

    I love the yellow revers and buttons in light fabric in combination with that camel coloured knitting. The white shirt is a good basic that works like an intermediary. Like the skirt but I get a little drunk watching the pattern. The shoes look a little bit cheap, even if they are maybe not.Though they match with the look (thanks to her bag). All together a great look and nice smile.

    PS: Great picture, I love the light atmosphere in the picture

    Love it: perfect transition into fall look. The yellow is great with the neutrals, as are the black accessories to add weight to the lighter colors in the outfit. Great synergy.

    I know that big bags and gladiator shoes are the fashion but I think that they take away from her lvely legs and color sense. It’s a beautiful outfit on a pretty girl and that’s all it should be

    The shoes are sexy, and accentuate
    those nice gams.

    Am in love with that little cardigan which looks like a blazer. Her shoes look rather uncomfortable and a bit too small, but she’s totally right to show off her legs cause they rock!
    Am not so hot for the skirt but think her grannie bag is divine!

    A huge key for a woman is to wear shoes that fit perfectly, especially with shoes that show the foot. To find a perfect fit can be really time consuming but it can be fun too. In this case, from the ankles up, the outfit is beyond fabulous, but I keep getting distracted by the tight fit of the shoes. That hurts and it doesn’t look as good as it should….

    Even the crossing signs in the back are high-fiving her!

    she’s ready to be interpreted as a Roy Lichtenstein painting: the dots, the yellow, the hard black outlines.

    Really a sexy, yet sophisticated look.

    Always love Natalie Massenet – wouldn’t expect anything less from Ms Net-a-porter herself. The look is elegant but surprising at the same time – I think the neon detail does the trick!

    I love how masterfully she put together orderliness of the b&w regular patterned skirt and playfulness and of supriseful yellow accent jacket. Only an artistic eye can calculate such thing. The color scheme is very inspirational, however I am not sure about the cuts and layered white shirt. The shoes and the purse are splendid!

    the patent seems to be a bit much with the soft springy colors.

    I actually think her skirt should’ve been a tad longer, it would suite her age better and look better too.

    Otherwise I think the outfit is good…

    I really like the yellow trim and buttons on this jacket. The plunging neckline and short skirt and pushed-up sleeves is a casual, commanding touch. There’s also a presence that says to me, she’s large and in charge. She’s wonderful.

    Contrast these shoes with those on yesterday’s zebra print: someone criticized those for the peeping toes but to me, they enhance the style (especially with the strong nail colour) but these simply don’t fit. The protruding small toe must be a constant irritant, both visially and physically.

    Let’s me think. Yep! I hate her. She’s gorgeous with legs to die for. Love the outfit. Not a fan of the purse or the shoes but with legs like that who cares.

    Her shoes look like they are not comfortable (are her little toes hanging out?). I think the blazer is a nice touch/length, but not with that outfit. Nice bag and great legs, they must go for days…HB

    I think this lady is very attractive in an unconventional way and that’s always sexy to me. It’s her face and expression that I’m most drawn to. Of course she’s got great gams and that don’t hurt. I love the bag. Love the shoes too. Are they gladiators? I wouldn’t classify them as such.

    I want to love her totally and unconditionally but I can’t honestly say I dig the clothes. Maybe separately with other items. Maybe not. I do, however, like the unusual color palette.

    For the person who asked about the jacket… It is 3.1 Phillip Lim. I think she looks fresh and very age appropriate. If you have still got great pins, why not show them? The shoes do look uncomfortable though.

    i would normally stray from such a heavy shoe coupled with such a fresh outfit, but somehow it works here. her height and long long legs seems to strike a perfect balance.

    love the arm length of the sweater with the white cuff of the shirt peeking out.

    I’m starting to wonder how much longer this particular shade of yellow will last, but so far, so good !!! Incredibly enough, it seems to match every other colour, even the most unexpected ones such as that beige, and it gives so much structure to an otherwise rather classic (although well-put, I admit) outfit.
