I’m not sure about this outfit. It’s an art student kinda outfit. She looks a bit to mature for it. And I can’t quite figure out what’s happening around her feet! Is she wearing socks over those tights?
you know, i agree with everyone in that the whole outfit works.. it’s great! but i hate, hate, hate the socks over the tights/leggings. and if her shoes were a little more polished, the way her face/hair is, the whole thing would work so much better!
OK. If you do come to Canada I would definitely skip London, Ontario, contrary to that other poster’s suggestion. :) Is no one else seeing a young Julie Andrews in that face? I’m loving the dance shoes paired with the lumberjacket. Growing up in Toronto the boys who hung out in their basements playing Dungeons and Dragons wore coats like that with cutoff jeans. She’s really working the 80s with great humour.
THis is so amazing that you’re posting this today, because I’ve been wearing a buffalo checked coat for the past few winters — it’s a real Woolrich hunting jacket complete with gun sleeve in the back. And I love it!
But just the other day I decided to pair it with a bright red lipstick and it changed everything — from geek-chic to just plain chic! This girl knew it all along!
I get a lot of compliments on it, and I wear it with everything, but it looks best as I did it today with a pencil skirt, black tights, and boots.
every now and then i catch a glimpse of buffalo plaid and wonder if it could make a comeback. with this photo, this style, the answer is a resounding YES. it’s another reinvention that i will try to use myself. thanks sart.
My first reaction was, “non j’aime pas ca du tout”, but her beautiful legs, her elegance, and her face redeem her and I can appreciate this outfit on her. Anyone else with a less striking physique might look, hmm, average?
This could be one of the very best ways to wear a winter-y jacket and shorts in the wintertime in LA when there’s really no “winter.” I see she’s layered the buffalo plaid over a blazer. The only thing I’d change to adapt to LA environs is I’d layer a vest instead of a blazer just for comfort’s sake.
London! Finally! Although you’re not the definitive chronicler of fashion, it’s great to see something other than bourgeois hunting tweeds. (Why do people wear that in the city?) Take a turn by Copenhagen one of these days for some amazingly eclectic fashion!
