Yes, yes, yes, it’s all about that coat for me! What’s funny is that you get the sense that she’s got a quiet confidence about, just from the way she’s posed, even though you cannot see her face. Fascinating.
i came this close to ordering this coat from net-a-porter and changed my mind. see it here makes me wish i hadn’t. i’m probably too, shall we say, “mature” for it, so i suppose there’s no regrets — except about the being too mature part. sigh.
They say it takes confidence to wear body-hugging clothes. I sorta disagree –it takes a lot of WORK, maybe, but not necessarily confidence. I think it’s MUCH more ballsy to wear something puffy like this coat, where the real body shape is hidden and thus, god-forbid, might be somewhat rotund. Aesthetically, I think it creates a very interesting silhouette –playful and eggy!
i like the belt-over-coat look in general, but i feel it’s always an editorial technique to make the coat look better (because we all know that nuances make the outfit). to do it in everyday life though, seem impractical me. Isn’t it rather cumbersome to have to remove this belt everytime you go indoors? And if you’re at a cafe, say, i guess you’d sling that belt over your coat on the chair– unless your coat came with beltloops? What if it slips off the chair and you’d have to pick it up? How troublesome and awkward! So okay, it might work in non-editorial, real life cases, but on this woman the look’s kind of contrived, in my opinion..
