A beautiful mix of tans — that cropped top thing is very eye-catching, and the belt is the perfect contrast. Surely she has many pairs of pants that would have made a better choice, though. I've never liked it when the blue in your jeans is the brightest color in an outfit. Women tend to think jeans look playful and chic, but in this context they just look cheap.
I'm sure they're not, which makes it doubly unfortunate.
Great photo! I love her natural pose and the layering she did on top is impeccable. She made those jeans look cool by pairing them with some awesome booties. The touch of green the belt adds – Genius. xo
I was hoping no one would pay attention to acid washed jeans and they'd just go away. Judging from the fit of the long rise and the leg shape, these jeans are left-overs from acid wash's first incarnation. IMHO yuck, modern jeans look and fit so much nicer.
I really dislike these jeans. I just imagine how much more polished this look would be with a pair of nice cropped trousers perhaps even in another earthy colour like eggplant. I do like the innovative way of wearing a crop top though, its much more contemporary than an exposed midriff.
okay what are 'mom' jeans? i think only gen-z z z z would like this look, all i can see is either 'Burda Moden circa 1994' (great comment anonymous) or the hideous acid wash fad that was the rage with mostly unstylish ppl back in the 90's (ouch!). the belt and the envelope are the only sartorial elements of this photo. sorry – she clearly has style, but this ensemble doesnt do it for me.
I like the coat and the overall color scheme. Also her confident stride. Not crazy about the midriff top layer nor the jeans, nor even the booties, which look a little too much like something my 79-year-old mother-in-law would wear with a dress. What gets me is her hair. The message I get is over-dyed, damaged ends, which I can't accept as chic. Debra Harry did it on purpose, peroxide-blonde with brunette roots. This just looks like growing out a dye job that was a few tones too far. Also, I don't think it's terribly classy to schlep a bunch of stuff in one's arms/hands. Are totes or other large bags out of the question these days?
Great photo about movement and graphism / rythm. And… I love the whole outfit : the jeans +++ the shoes, the coat, the different layers, the hair, the brown paper package… everything. And what's more, it realy looks confortable. This is inspiring.
imagine doing your errands wearing this. this outfit isn't predictable, but is so very wearable and perfect for what she seems to be doing- out and about in the city. fashion is the best when it reflects your sense of place and mood within the world at one moment in time. this captures that. fabulous
Ummm not sure.. is it bogan chic (aussie term).. with cut off tee and the jeans.. she has the walk and a great look for the camera but the jeans.. no, the boots.. no.. coat is nice .. but to me it just reminds me of too many things wrong about the late 80's and early 90's.. you have to be here though…
I really love your page and think you do a great job… Still, don't you think all these women you show have very similar looks? I mean, the boots, "that kind" of jeans / trousers / hat / scarf / bag / vintage-looking earrings / belt and so on. Or is it just me?
Scott! There have been so many occasions where I wish you could post what your muses are wearing and by who. I know..I know they are probably a la vintage but I would really love it if you would just tell me where her shoes are from! Could be Chloe? Such an easy piecy look!
Apparently the fashion gods are angry… they don't think we've done enough penance for wearing mommy-fit acid wash the first time around. They want us to atone by wearing it again, or at least being forced to look at it, now that we know better. (Love the rest of the outfit, though.)
I love the irony of this. Reversing the meaning of 'Burda moden 1994' and Mom Jeans/hillbilly acid wash. This is far from tame and lame, far from mumsy, cheap and unhip. She's experimenting with styles, periods, colors, shapes. She is pushing it, but well knows what she's doing. She is an insider, I'm sure. I adore the playful people I encounter here; reason I come back for more, each day. They dare, they take risks (always intelligently), but above all they play. Hence, they're sexy. And inspirational.
She looks great, but at the same time I think she's working the trends a bit too hard. Acid wash jeans: check; new neutrals: check; cropped top: check. I think it's more interesting to see looks that reflect the wearer's personal style, or their own take on current fashion.
What is all this "smack talk" about the Soccer Mom jeans? I say, so what! This woman will look fantastic in any style of jeans she decides to wear. I do agree with one of the comments about her jeans being the brightest part of her outfit. I ordered a pair of straight leg jeans online and sent them back just last week. Reason? They were such a bright blue for "soft vintage wash". As for this woman's outfit, it is fantastic. I love the booties, the casual way she wears her coat, and the layered look of her tops. The green belt is a wonderful foil for the entire look. Stop twisting the knife everyone, maybe you're all a little jealous and would like to look this great on what appears to be a very casual running errands kind of day.
"She could probably rock a garbage bag"… Indeed! A vision in caramel. Individually, I would pass by any of the items she's wearing, but together she makes them look wonderful – and surely that's the essence of real style? The layering of neutral colours and the '80's style denim is very "now", but she doesn't look like a slave to fashion. Impressive.
Okay, leaving out my catty comment of last. I love her outfit from head to toe. The combination of colors she has chosen are remarkable and I love her coat. I don't care what anybody says, the jeans are just fine! The green belt and booties are to die for. Lovely swaggering walk, great hair. She is wonderful!
there's something rather erotic about how the longer shirt at first doesn't register, that you think it's her stomach, and do a double take. coupled with the cropped lighter shirt, it seems very deliberate, very eye catching, yet far more subtle than overt cleavage or a low cut top would be.
