    I’m not a huge fan of the green shoes: they’re a different colour base (yellow?) to the rich red and blue. Otherwise, I think she looks great.

    (Although the stance, as usual, annoys me for its self-consciousness.)

    vintage-y looking audrey hepburn 60′s coat-check
    oversized sunglasses-check
    swoop bangs-check
    giant slouchy shoulder bag-check

    she looks good in what she’s wearing but its dreadfully unoriginal

      Just because she isn’t wearing a one of a kind piece of art work, or has her undies on the outside of her skirt doesn’t mean its un original. She is putting her own spin on an outfit other people might wear. Besides, who cares. She is wearing it all very, very well. You could learn a lot from her.
      And her color combination is adorable, and so is the way she is standing. My goodness people sure have a lot of “pointers” for others, don’t they.

    I love this, the rust color is perfect for fall while the blue punches it up.

    Would it be better with a different color shoe…can’t decide.

    a bit too trendy and cookie cutter for my liking, but i do like the use of the primary colours

    I think it is cute. She wears it well. I don’t feel that it is any less unoriginal than some of the other photos posted-just a different style.

    I love turquoise and red, it is by and far one of my favorite color combinations (it’s actually how I did my living room). A little unexpected, but very good.

    this girl is so chic. the leggings are a bit overdone, but it works with the overall outfit.

    Agree with Hoi Polloi. It’s just a hipster costume now. But you know, I appreciate that she’s rocking some kind of look. There was intent in the way she got dressed and that’s better than I do most days, that’s for sure.

    i really like the way the red and blue ‘pop’ against eachother – the yellow taxi cab fits in so well as an accessory

    A kaleidoscope of colour! I’ve never seen such an array of colours in one real-life look! And she pulls it off without looking like a clown! I think the stance is more confidence and korkiness than self-consciousness. The ciggie and oversized shades lead one to believe that.

    LOL – hoi polloi, you’re funny! I was looking at the picture thinking something similiar…the earrings caught my attention then I started down your check-list.

    she is cute but I am having difficulty seeing the girl underneath the trends.

    Y’all have gotta relax(!) the hipster comments, methinks……. She is a definitely “in-the-know” gal based on her color choices, and defiant stance. I think she appears very confident, but relaxed. and in my book that’s more than half the battle. There may have been an item or two that I would have done differently (due to my obsessive stance on not ever being overdone–NEVER, never!) however, I think it works here, and for her in particular, in that she is: a) young:
    b) good-looking; c) obviously feeling fine about her look. It’s all about the attitude– or it should be, anyway.

    Perhaps a bit overdone…but still a hella cute chick.

    Cigarette – check.

    Apart form the turquoise/red combo, I agree with the unoriginality comment – another skinny wannabe hipster looking like a jumble sale. Layering can look so great done well, but I don’t think that’s the case here.

    Young, thin, a pretty face, hairstyling in sync…all a good start! For my sensibilities, there are a couple of incongruous layers. The jacket looks nice and warmish for the fall, color is beautiful…but the light blue t-shirt dress underneath is too summery in contrast. The scarf could go with the jacket…except the nice jacket is makin’ the scarf look old and stretched out and tired. The leggings are okay…Wait, I think I’ve got it: Get rid of the t-shirt, button up that coat, replace the scarf, add some red or black shoesies…now we’re talking. I think now it’s the t-shirt and the scarf that throw the jacket and leggings off. We could put a minidress underneath and she would be cuteness defined.

    I agree with most of the comments here, color palette is all over the place, and that is really what is keeping the outfit together. Otherwise it is something we have seen before.

    Another great photo with good intensity. I like her look. Her hair is so cute, and I like the overall shape of things. Everyone else here has so masterfully dissected the details, so my focus is on two things: 1. The color pallete *needs* to be trimmed a little: I think the green shoe is wrong. A metallic/silver high heel would improve the posture of the shot and give her a pizzaz that the flats deflate.
    2. She is wonderful, pulling off a nice waif look, but her hands look so frightfully thin. Slightly adjusting up her daily calories would be better; not being such a stick-figure would look good on her.

    I like the incongruous aspect of the look – it’s like she’s fighting the changing of the seasons. Summer blue green, sunglasses barefoot in flats vs autumn red coat scarf and black leggings. She’s a dead ringer for maggie gyllenhaal. I suspect she’s the type who looks good in almost anything. Only those who are beautiful, young and thin can pull off the slouchy, rumpled back-of-the-closet look.

    You’re all wrong! this color palette is amazing, these are pretty much complimentary colors that are contrasting eachother and making the other pop. Turquoise and red are totally fall colors if done right.

    I love this. It seems to have been a chilly day so perhaps she rocked “dumpster chic” out of necessity…

    Red coat and scarf=warm
    leggings=warm
    layers in general=warm
    big glasses= block the sun better than small glasses.
    Big bag: carries a lot of stuff

    sometimes style arises in response to the elements and ones lifestyle. Not just in response to trends.

    Eek turquoise green shoes! Like the upper portion but definitely not the shoes. it would look so much nicer with plain black ballerina Bardot like flats.

    she looks like a young lara flynn boyle to me…but i can’t really see lara flynn boyle wearing that outfit. it looks cute on her though…although i see what everyone’s saying that it’s cookie cutter trendy…the colors aren’t so typical though.

      Everyone with eyes can tell she is pretty. What does that even mean “you can’t see if she is pretty?” How could you see it? if she were nude or something?
