At last: simple pieces, great fit and form, wonderful play of textures and gentle colors. Preemptively–do we have to gripe about the jacket being some kind of skin? It’s exquisite–and really what’s the difference between wearing this fur jacket and wearing leather, eating meat, and using a multiplicity of products that are animal-derived?
LOVING the complete look, a modern day Annie Hall in Paris, clean & crisp color combination…overall she did one hell of a job putting this outfit together & how could you not love her effortlessly chic attitude? WELL DONE!
Incredible how much impact the right pieces can make, the shoes are perfectly balanced against those pants, and i love that shade of gray! The jacket comes off so polished against her hair! This is stunning lady!
Great shot (and great outfit), but I honestly think my favorite part of this shot is the guy in the right-hand corner. The look on his face is priceless- sort of admiration/lust/confusion, all at the same time: “Why do women dress in things that I can’t see their a$$ through, and still look smokin hot?! Not fair.”
This is one of those great photos that makes me wonder “what is the story? What is she reading and what concerns the guy in the background…”
I love that the woman in this shot is not rushing the season. I like to enjoy the transitions and not leap past spring into summer.
Oh! The clothes… Love the shoes. Hope the fur is faux because the color and proportion are perfect. Normally not a big fan of so many pleats, but the fabric drapes so well, carrying off the crop. The bangles and the hard ware of the bad play off each other… subtle color scheme not screaming for attention. Love this.
gorgeous shot! The peekaboo shoes and the well dressed gentleman stealing a glance in the background make this perfect! Incredible lines in your photograph, their glances, and in the pleats of her pants and crossed legs.
Those shoes are delicious, Sart! Also, I’ve never been much a fan of pleats, but they WORK here. What a delightful way to welcome little darling spring. I think the man in the background would agree. :)
I have a hard time appreciating big pleats in pants. If that women had big thighs, I don’t think they would work. BUT she doesn’t and they look fabulous on her. A great example of how-to-wear. And I love the hair. And the shoes are a brilliant — really help make the outfit. She knows what works for her, that’s for certain. And with that sweater, it makes you so comfortable and cozy to look at her.It gives it a very soft look, yet very classy.
I’m starting to be so annoyed with those fur-bashing cat ladies, along with those who can’t bear the sight of a cigarette (and I’m not a smoker). At least, there’s one category of comments Sart won’t publish anymore: The skinny hating ones.
You have got a nice blog. There is a problem though. I couldn’t find any way to search your archive. It’s annoying to manually go through several months. Please add a search box to the layout of your blog. Here is a link to a ordinary search box that you can add to your Blogger layout.
Trousers, trousers, the volumed, shortened trousers with pleats (again)! Divine. I’m a bit fed up with skinny pants, although wearing them myself most of the time. But waaaaay too often. These are so fresh, fun, comfortable and giving the woman’s ankles the beautiful slenderness, grace and exciting exposure.
There is drama in this photo, and it’s due to the guy in the background giving her a quick look (which the camera caught). It’s all about the drama. It highlights what she is wearing and where she seems to be going.
I’ve never been a fan of this style of shoe. They look ugly ugly ugly! But I love that there are people out there that love them! Taste is so funny.
This is the second photo with pleats. So is this the next thing? I can’t wait to see Stacey and Clinton from What Not to Wear hail the virtues of pleats after dissing them for so long. I personally think they are atrocious.
awesome shoes! Those edgy shoes paired with very sober clothes make a perfect contrast, wich in turn only few people know how to do without looking like copycats, or like Victoria Beckham (read totally planed). Excellent sense of style, very italian. Love her hair.
Sart, some how you seemed to match shirt colour and the other colours in the shot… the man shirt and the car the lady is standing in from of… its not as perfect as the last shot but the car is blue with grey shadows and the man has a grey jacket with a blue shirt! i love that you are a blessed man
I love her choices. Sometimes, though,I think the commenters – especially the ones who share their creative-writing essays, are completely style-blind and are trying to hide it by overcompensating in their descriptions. To you, please, let the picture speak for itself.
I love that she’s taking risks, those pants are difficult without the heels ..not good, and she knows it! that’s why she puts on the furs, perfect balance takes the outfit into a contemporary and sophisticated level instead of in a fatal trip back to the 80′. Well done, Mr Background know is it too!
Love the colours, the textures and the brilliance of how she combined some difficult-to-wear pieces in this look. Stylish yet casual. This ensemble creates a impression that it was “just thrown on” but it was undoubtedly more carefully thought out. Adore this look!!
Also love how you captured the movement and made us all curious about the story behind this shot Sart. Could make up 1001 captions to go under this picture.
I want those pants, anyone know where to source these????
shoes are indeed great- but the pants would only look decent on a uber thin woman; yes, she does work it but those trousers are not for everyone! I just found this diamond-in-the ruff boutique in soho new york called (hem)- they carry around 30 different styles/cuts/colors of every unique type of pant you can imagine- that fits anyone- not just penicil model types. I ended up buying 5 pairs thinking I would never try on even a pair b/c I feel my body type is not fit for pants (i am a a-line dress person) BOY WAS I WRONG! check out their site hemboutique.com – even though the site does not have all the pants i saw in the store…
All I was thinking when I looked at this photo was…I wish I could afford an outfit like that. I don’t often think that in life – am quite happy to have a modest one – but this outfit is in the fabrics. Sigh. Will have to find a sugar daddy after all. :)
This is EXACTLY why Sart is so influential… Initially, I could not see myself wearing this new style of baggy pleated front pants with narrow legs. In a previous comment, I thought they looked too 80′s, Vanilla Ice, or MC Hammer. However, seeing it so PERFECTLY executed in this combination with the coat, shoes, bag, etc., I really WANT to wear this entire outfit!!!
Besides that, the picture is great with the guy checking her out in the background.
I suspect I am not alone in being influenced to track down a look inspired by this picture. Thanks for your wonderful blog!
Well, at least I think I do? Mine are from H&M and have a paper bag style around the waist, with a belt attached. Most would probably deem these unflattering, but I absolutely adore them! They have a quirky, avant-garde quality, and look amazing with super high strapped stilettos.
