She’s a ‘Thriller’! Now that Wacko Jacko is hiding in Dubai, can we bring out our multi-zip leathers and wear one glove? I love how 80′s style is being appropriated by those still in diapers when it was popular. Take it, it’s yours!
I agree with Juliar- if you got it flaunt it but if they are not looking good just put on a higher cleavage- besides the proportion of the t-shirt together with the colar of the leather jacket look odd- one of the worst pic on this blog
The worst of the Eighties and clothes which try to press the body into a completely different shape than its natural one – it can’t get any worse, sorry!! Would anyone please be honest to this woman! And, no, the bag doesn’t make a difference, either.
Hm, yeah, I agree the cleavage doesn’t look good, certainly not to her advantage. But look at how many of us are commenting- she’s really making a statement about what we think cleavage should look like.
No, no, no–this outfit is interesting! It’s in line with those off-kilter outfits that have been posted lately–sort of an “oddball really-severe all-black series”. I like these best because they push the boundaries, push what you’re used to seeing. They’re not really about the pretty, or the sexy; they’re weird and almost science fictional or futuristic (although not in the shiny-glossy sixties way). This is an outfit from a society with totally different aesthetics of proportion; there’s something utopian in it, and something perverse. It’s like something from a Samuel Delany novel, if anyone reads those.
i guess what some here are trying to say is that it’s been a long time since they’ve seen women’s breasts. or at least real women’s breasts and that the appreciation for natural form has moved underground. personally, i couldn’t say better how i feel about this look than sarah mae above, so let me just add: damn, those shoes!! (sorry for the past few reactionary posts, will do better, promise)
Thanks to sara mae and lucy for their thoughtful & constructive comments. I’ve thought a lot about this look, with its interesting curves, tubular shapes, and provocative contrasts. Thanks also to The Sartorialist for continually challenging and delighting me with your vision.
I like the last comment about real womens breasts, but I still think this is an icky outfit. I think the vest is the final straw for me actually, not the odd neckline, which is neither belly button low, nor flirtatiously loose. But that vest jacket thing just kills it all for me.
Separately the items this lady wears look good- boots, jacket, bag and hair. Not the dress and NOT the boobs…And her face is too kind for this outfit- she is not a rocker-motorcycle material. I see her in something more floral and country-like.
This isn’t a rocker motorcycle outfit. Its a fashion rocker motorcycle outfit. Big difference. And I have no idea what people are seeing as so outrageous. Its low cut. So what? She is obviously young, and shaped correctly to wear it! And what “real women’s breasts” are you all talking about? Those are so high up, they are just about under her armpits. So, no sagging, or flattening or anything. Its just a very low cut top. Get over it. It looks very good.
