    It looks to me like she is wearing her Sunday morning lounge around the house outfit. Everything is too slouchy for my taste (and I like slouchy!)

    Just love the peak of red shoe. She does slouchy perfectly.

    Each time I see one of Scott’s excellent photos of someone whose trouser cuffs are touching the ground or actually so baggy that folds of fabric are piling up around the person’s shoes, I wish that I could ask the wearer: Do you have a different relationship to DIRT than most civilized people (i.e., do you enjoy sweeping the streets and floors wherever you go, so you can bring all of that FILTH back with you to your home)? And do you enjoy TRIPPING over your own clothing, so much so that you want to wear something that must prevent you from moving at any speed above a slow shuffle? Perhaps these individuals just alight from their nice clean cars to stand briefly on our streets, and are then bodily lifted up by minions and whisked hygienically home….Perhaps they never actually walk, let alone stride rapidly, jog, or run. But I think it likely that they are just foolish fashion victims willing to sacrifice cleanliness and health and basic mobility to what they imagine are the dictates of style.

      It was cage stilettos a few seasons ago. This is depressing AND unwearable. You never see men sacrificing basic human functions like mobility in order to slavishly copy a runway experiment.

      Hilarious.

      I had a too long pair of pants but got rid after nearly going head first on the stairs every single time I wore them.

      I have the same reaction to very, very high heels. I know the wearer can go only 10 paces at best. So they are only good for getting out of a car to lunch and then back again.

        Those are called “sit and sip” shoes–you walk into abar and sit down the rest of the night.

      Addison, my dear, get a grip… and the rest of you. If you look closely you will see that this woman’s trousers are in fact cut so that the hemline is sitting just above the ground. They are folding (hardly “piling up”) at the front as they sit on the rise of her shoe. Far from sacrificing her right to claim to be a ‘civilised person’ (‘clean’, ‘healthy’, ‘mobile’), what this woman is claiming is her right to COMFORT. One might question whose ‘dictates of style’ are being defined here, when a woman comes under scrutiny and criticism in equal measure for being extremely comfortable (wide legged, long, soft pants and sensible shoes) or extremely un-comfortable (cage stilettos). What is it ok for a woman to wear?

        Women will wear whatever they like, and some of them will fall downstairs.

      There is nothing “uncivilized” about being at peace with the fact that the world contains dirt & we might come in contact with it. There is something uncivil, however, about being snide and insulting to those who don’t share your phobias.

    pants dragging… that’s a pet peeve.

    I’m with Addison’s comment above…hear! Hear!
    Street sweeping clothes, puke, completely ruin any look, no matter how stylish one might otherwise look!
    I so don’t get it ??!

    I love her sunglasses, purse and her hair. I just wish her look wasn’t so grey and slouchy. If this is her look to go to from bed to the bakery, then bravo, you gave the Sunday morning sleepy outfit some class. Somehow I get the feeling that it’s not the case though and that she’s not just hopping in and out of the house for a loaf of bread. But each to their own.

    Not quite sure about this one. On one side a I love the relexed and comfy look, but at the same time I’m like “No…wait…that’s what I wear at home when there is no sign of potential guests on the horizon”. As for the lenght of the trousers, I am with Addison. Long trousers make you look way taller, but they really have to be the right lenght. These do not seem to long though.

    Trousers. Too. Long. Again.

    Terrible, even considering she’s great-looking. Would be OK if she’s shuffling around the house in the morning. Otherwise, nope.

    If she wasn’t a chic lady in Milano, then I’d guess this would have been taken in a Walmart. Middle America style… infecting the world.

    Sport shoes + coat? Hmm, looks ok, maybe this is something for the modern people.

    For myself, at first I was horrified by the length, but now I like it. Signals a change in style, and seems to originate in Milan. I cannot abide, though, fur. So…

    I agree with Andreea in the first comment, I want to be her. The hair is so simple, the layered big tees, the wide leg pants a little too long because she is wearing cool red sneakers instead of heels, and THE COAT! I want that coat, the fabric and the color are perfect. And to top it all off with elegance she has great sunglasses and a small brown leather clutch. I am creating a capsule collection to wear all summer so I can dress in this vain. Thanks Scott!

    For me this is perfection. The trainers are a wonderful finishing touch.
