    I absolutely love that her skirt is just a hint shorter than her coat, makes the whole look so much more attractive.

    This is what feminine is all about.
    The skirt length is so flattering, shoes are as delicate as her legs, and over all silhoutte is delightful. A feast on the eye.

    Again I love the colors and the mix of materials. Also the beauty of this gorgeous woman. The hair, the coat, the top, the skirt, the tights and shoes.

    That coat makes my heart skip a beat. This ensemble looks so comfortable yet so pulled together.


    March 2, 2009 at 10:06 am

    Very elegant. I am not a fan of brown colors in general but she perfectly mixes brown and black! She really looks great.

    Nice look overall. A little dull for my tastes. I think this could be quite exceptional with some standout accessory or pop of unexpected color. Perhaps a refined belt would have done the trick.

    I love tweed!

  39. Michelle

    March 2, 2009 at 2:15 pm

    This is a remarkable look. Pace Anonymous 11:20, I think the shoes, the detail at the neckline, and the shine of the skirt picking up the lighter tones of the tweed are enough to make the look transcendent.

    Dear Sartorialist, Since your site no longer allows for enlargements, it seems, would it be possible for you to supplement the full-look images with one or two detail shots (e.g. of the neckline here). If I recall, you used to do this more often. Thanks!

    this is my idea of perfect…sexy without showing one inch of skin, soft without pastels, classy but not too clean, expensive without being obvious. adore.

    the women of paris are chic
    the women of milan are sexy, even when they’re not trying to be.

    she’s beautiful. and the dark jewel tones complement her very well.

    I love how the colour of her lips compliments the rest of her outfit. This woman’s face is captivating. She manages to wear her clothes and not the other way around.

    The tone of deep colors fits her maturity, yet the tight fitting of the cloths gave her a youthful look. Great combination or colors and the fitting!

    Looking so easy and divine in all brown is not everybody┬┤s privileg.

    I also love these brownie shades. When I was blond, i could wear them without problem. A couple of month ago I shaded my hair brown, and i was shocked, how colorless mouse I became.
    Today i have an appointment with the hairdresser…I get my blond back….but my brown cloths stay.

    I have loved this color combination since I was very young, just like I adore navy and black. One sees it very rarely….and it is really beuatiful and sophisticated.

    Brown? Wine? The photo makes the color fall in between and into something very rich and indescribable.

    Browns and navies are on this blog a lot this season. Kudos!
