    Perfection. The look’s not overthought and she looks completely at ease. I particularly like the pale, almost watery pink of her blouse and the mid-height heel, which is a refreshing change from the extremes of height we’ve been seeing at both ends of the spectrum.

    Since I expect almost everybody to agree on: hair, shades, colour combination, forms of blouse and skirt – I want to cherrish that lady for her posture. This is the way to do it. Awesome.

    Is this L’wren Scott? She always looks so put together, so classy and so stylish. That amazingly perfect figure doesn’t hurt. I have also noticed that she has the coolest posture, I say cool because it’s good (not great) and ladylike but ever so slightly wrong (fashionably so, of course)

    The blouse is unbuttoned just a little too much (in a good way) -the outfit’s overall conservative flair permits this. That figure/that hair/those legs – she is simply elegant and intriguing. the “Naughty Librarian” look is always a hit.

    For me, everything is right here. The hair color, fabric choices, skirt waist, crumpled sleeve, D’Orsay pump…

    None of her things scream who made them – it’s all very understated and flattering. Frankly, it would be nice if more women were secure enough to do this instead of competing with their hyper au courant designer pieces screaming of signature print,buckle and logo.

    LOVE her. Love love love her.

    I know it’s old fashion but I love when purses match shoes.
    and I love the mix of black and brown: black sunglasses, brown purse, black skirt, brown shoes.
    and the light pink with gold accessories go a long way to make it work. the hourglass shape is classy, while the unbuttoned shirt allows for a hint of playfulness.

    To me this look represents classic European chic. She could be from the forties, sixties, nineties or the present! A loose button down blouse, carefree ponytail, heels and a high waisted black skirt is a look that will be timeless. With many baby doll and trapeze dresses so popular now its great to see a figure-hugging skirt that suits her beautifully.

    I love the contrast of this structured, high-waisted skirt with the one earlier. This is another divine look. Her accessories definitely bring it up a notch. Both skirts are potentially difficult to pull off, but they both do it with such grace. This could be very va-va-voom but she relaxes it with that lovely shirt. She looks so cool and relaxed — a realy feat in that skirt! lovely.

    Yes, of course this silhouette rocks and is universally pleasing, but before everyone starts pushing this for every woman on the street, please remember that the true pencil skirt does not fit well into the average life. The high, fitted waist is fine, but a good taper right below the knees? That also requires at least delicate kitten heels (if not full out stilettos)? It will bind your legs together. The dowdier A-line, trapeze, bubble etc., while uglier, is much more permissable to movement.

    She looks like an old pattern envelope. Except in that case she might be peeking over her shades.

    My instinct was to immeditely wonder how much [even] better that would look if the blouse had a teensy bit if Lycra in it, as the billowy waist is the problem I have when trying to rock this look. But that’s the great thing about this skirt – it defines the waist so there’s no need to worry about losing one’s waist to the cloud of coming-untuckedness after an inevitable lean forward. Sweet.

    As a novelty-seeking type, I do usually like the more eclectic looks you capture [in other words, "f*ed up" classics ; )] But still: purrrrdy.

    This is my favorite look to wear. Hourglass figures look great with a high waist – otherwise if the waist is obscured I look 10 lb heavier at least. The top should have a little looseness to balance the close bottom. The trick is to find the right skirt with a bit of spandex in it to allow movement. If you can’t walk with a pretty normal stride, it’s the wrong one. The fabric of the skirt also needs to be heavy enough to resist underwear lines and wrinkles around the hips. It’s a great work to cocktail look.
