Such a great look. I love the sharp V that hits exactly at her natural waist, and then the slight flare of the blazer at the hips. It’s very flattering while at the same time being interesting and even trend-conscious (the wide legs, the masculine cuts). I’ve seen a lot of similar ensembles that weren’t as effective because they didn’t take into account what cuts would and wouldn’t be flattering. Of course, it helps that she has a great figure, but still–this woman is the antithesis of a fashion victim; she just makes it all work so well for her.
I definitely agree with everything that has been said here so far. I especially like the rolled up sleeves, which give this sophisticated look a “practical” appearance – I can very well picture her doing a good job (if that is not overly interpreted!?)
Also very much like the setting of the pic. This massive greenish Door as a background with the colors and pattern (!) she is wearing >> great!
This is a great outfit and greatly worn. It is as simple and casual as some of the menâ€™s wear that I admire, but it still has a very feminine touch. The jacket is beautiful, very subtle, great cut and very special grey-pearl-beige-pale pink color; she did a very nice thing with her sleeves. Her hair looks very nice, also very well cut; I just hope she wonâ€™t use that black thing in her wrist to tie her hair in a pony tail later. I wish I could see the shoes, they must be pretty. And last, but not least, the door in the background is gorgeous!
I agreee with Pretty Kitty; the jacket has that worn-in softness that vintage pieces sometimes have. In my view, that’s the main advantage of buying quality. A well-made garment ages better. Love the pictures and the peep toes! Jorge from West Palm Beach
My computer screen is a bit fuzzy today but I’m loving the texture mix with the pants and the vest (is it a vest?) as well as the jacket. Also love the peep toe shoes with the masculine clothes and the very deep neckline- she still looks very feminine and elegant.
Oh so CHIC mademoissele!!! I LUV Oversized long blazer, where can I get one in the US? Other than Topshop and shipping cost is US$20…ouchh… Her blazer looks like the one model Irina was wearing with her thigh high boots. Very YSL !!!
Total effortless chic: think Armani, intellectual, feminist, and a drop of working mother. Are the blue pants and top a one-piece? Love how she is showing a bit of skin with the top, but is otherwise concealer. The peeptoes make the look more feminine. The hair looks almost Hepburn inspired, and the tan with the blue compliments her lovely hair and skin.
The comments, and I’ve read every one, are enlightening. I lodge #100 because, inter alia, the lady deserves to attain the coveted “Sart Century Mark.” (100 or more comments – I just coined this with Sart’s acquiessence).
The clothing flows like a light breeze: not over-bearing, but felt and appreciated. Dress the way you want to be treated: she will be treated very well.
Tres chic. Great pants, fantastic length. I like the way she rolls up her sleeves too. Is the lady of Vietnamese heritage? She looks like she might be Vietnamese. And the blue colour of her pants could be what some have referred to as either Chairman Mao Blue. Although I can’t be sure.
Utterly stylish – the beige and black are so elegant, and love the lenth of the jacket. That plus the wide trousers make it so louchely cool. I do think it needs really fantastic quality tailoring to work.
At first I couldn’t decide if I liked her outfit. But she looks comfortable in her clothes (her body language says it), and people don’t dress like this anymore, so her individuality shows through, and she is a Yes. Nice setting, too.
