    I’ll take the female version; the woman is a vision of crisp versus liquid. Any doubts that a monochromatic palette only truly works with black (hello, dark San Francisco clouds) may now and forever be put to rest.

    You were in London?! (I am always alarmed by this thought because what if you see me and I am wearing a very rubbish outfit?!) Ah, but this was a while ago…

    I really like wide pants being worn so casually, they do look especially good in THAT shade of grey. The person in the second photo is wearing extremely trendy shoes and they work so well with the black outfit!! I have to say the third one is quintessentially London: very chic and casual and practical, but never without the wackniess. Here I love the cut of her trousers, her unbuttoned shirt, her armfuls of bracelets and of course the stripe in her hair. (Not to mention the background! Very surreal.) Thank you Sarto!

    White shoes with a black outfit??! Somehow, she makes it work.

    And the third woman is actually overwhelming me: it reminds me of 20 or so years ago —when it seemed that a good number of women were not so afraid of adding a fair degree of masculinity to their look. She pulls it off so beautifully.

    If this is London, put me on the next plane please !

    The first picture is divine! I absolutely love the monochromatic colour scheme of her clothes. Lovely fit of sweater and pants! Great pants length! Nice shoes Chic, indeed!

    I do like the second picture as well. The silver shoes are a nice touch with the black clothing and tights. One tiny comment — she seems a bit bow-leged the way she’s standing, which detracts from her great look and style.

    The lady in the third picture looks the stylish artist. I like this casual outfit and the way her clothes fit her. She seems quite comfortable. Love the wristlets/bracelets,tattoos? Most of all, I love her shoes; they are amazing!!!!!

    #1- perfect. the hair could be better styled though.
    #2- hate that purse. the skirt legth could be a bit longer.
    #3- she’s lucky you chose that wall for the background. i love the outfit but it misses an edge, a spot of light, something. the hair streak doesn’t do anything for her.

    Super elegant, the lady in the first photo. It’s the kind of elegance that can only be achieved wearing top of the line clothing: in this case the superfine wool of the trousers and the perfect pocket detailing of the sweater.

    Umm…the young lady in the middle. I’m a little awestruck. Her overall attitude, the cheekbones, the vintage shoes (in white, I might add), the hair parted down the middle. My goodness.

    She probably wouldn’t turn everyone’s head, but you got my vote sweetie.

  22. Alicia

    December 11, 2007 at 4:44 pm

    I love the theme of color in each of these.
    The blonde’s outfit is pure texture/proportion.
    I love the metallic punch of the second. I like the shape of her bag, but I would have preferred it in black to brown.
    And the background of the last photo really makes it stand out. Her blonde streak, frames, and cuffs make her otherwise unassuming monochromatic outfit interesting and personal.

    Woman at the top is having a Cate Blanchett moment. Lovely to see tonal gray ensemble, to me it is almost a twist on winter white. Could wear this anytime. The background makes me think of Spring. I think the black bag keeps it from looking boring. Love all the black you are showing Sart, but this is a great alternative too!

    I love the snappy trouser suit on the woman in the third photo. It looks like she put some thought into her accessories, too — although is that a paper clip on her jacket pocket? I also think her placement against the colorful vertical stripes accentuated her lean look. Great composition Sart!

    First photo is AMAZING. I love her outfit- the monochromatic look is so natural and the details are so uncluttered. The trees, the bushes, the angle, the woman, her stance, everything…one of your best photographs yet, Sart.
    Second photo- very cute coat.
    Third photo: She looks like a very happy and inspired individual.

    I love love love the first outfit. Beautiful in a finely detailed, understated way. She reminds me of waking up in the morning an finding the ground and trees completely covered in a fine powdery, downy snow.

    I also like the second outfit, or maybe it’s just that the woman wearing it is beautiful and has such presence…

    My only problem is with the shoes.

    I am militantly against jazz shoes! Seriously: I’m like the one woman version of the Baader-Meinhof gang, except instead of hating capitalism I hate jazz shoes. ;)

    For me, our Paris Hilton look-alike at the top, though she looks stunning, is the least interesting of these three pics. The second woman I want to hang up in my wall as an example of what personal style, and doing your own thing beautifully, is all about. Likewise the bottom picture, whilst clearly going for the masculine look (I’m a man and I want those shoes), her look feels very faminine to me, I think the shirt and short jacket balance it out-marvellous.

    I admire the first outfit (minus the pointy shoes). The luxurious scarf pulls it together.
    I’ve been staring at the black outfit with the silver shoes in the second picture for a while now and still can’t decide if it is my thing. But I find the lady’s face captivating.
    The third picture is different – not as much a fasion pic as an interesting portrait. I wonder what she does – is she an artist, a stylist or maybe a graphic designer?
    I think I am getting addicted to this blog!

    For me only the lady in the second photo has an intelligent and creative outfit. The contrasting shoes in silver, no other colour would have done better here.

    The outfit in photo no. 1 has a kind of sarcastic touch to me. That top, those glasses and that bag, omg!

    That strictly black outfit in photo no. 3, it is just boring. The only interesting thing about it is the way she is wearing it.

    I am a big fan of your blog! Love it very much! I view it everyday!
    But, I find there is not enough male style! Because I am a guy, I am more interested in guy’s dress.
    I remember there are a lot more man style before. So hope you could put more.
    Thanks a lot
    Have a wonderful day!

    re monochrome lady’s trousers too long: They’re not. This is a tall person/wide trouser dilemma – longer legs cause the trousers to ride up more when walking. So in order that the trousers don’t look ‘too short’ in motion, they have to be tailored a bit ‘too long’ while standing still. I think a generous break for wide trousers looks luxurious and is especially welcome in a sumptuous fabrication, as shown here.

    Second lady – perfection of a slightly sculpted look of the mono block of colour in her coat, tight and bag. By the way – her shoes are not white, as some people said above. They are silver – I know as I own the same pair ;-)

    Just goes to show… takes all kinds to make the world go ’round. I find the gray pants to be a bad ’80′s flashback, and the shoes a distraction. ‘Course, I don’t like the glasses, either. A pretty girl, lost in an ill-executed outfit.

    Number three — dynamism and confidence, and no apology. She understands her own proportions.

    I want the 2nd woman’s coat. Its a really goregous basic.

    The third woman’s look: maybe its just that I hate androgyny, but I hate it. I know its tailored but with the hair stripe, the glasses, the shoes, and the bracelets, plust the all black, it reads “frumpy” to me.
