Genius. That first skirt is sublime. I am usually not drawn to leather skirts, as the stitching always seems to make the structure too stiff for my liking, but in this case the garment looks like it would flow beautifully. Fantastic!
What I love about these women is that each conveys a unique personality in her posture. For instance, the first two look a bit inhibited (and portray this is different ways) and the last looks completely carefree and relaxed. And yet all three are beautiful women in beautiful clothes.
Wow, the charcoal dress in the third picture is amazing! I love everything about it. The girl wearing it is sublime too. She is a dead ringer for the woman who played Mel Gibson’s ill-fated bride in “Braveheart.”
re: the middle photo, who would have thought that the office mom look could be co-opted by swedish hipsters? Those pants are all kinds of grotesque, but improbably she pulls them off. When I saw this I went “wow” “ewww” and “huh?” all at the same time. No easy feat :)
I appreciate ironic style, subversive style, and fresh or revisited perspectives, but I still think those high-waisted pants typically make a woman look less feminine and create unflattering proportions. They highlight the lower half of a woman’s stomach, which is, by nature, every woman’s problem area. And from the back!! Pear-shaped pancake butt is usually not a look to which women (or men) are drawn. These pants make curvy women appear more bottom-heavy and, strangely, hip-less women look more vertical. And if there’s any presence of a saddle bag, well, be prepared to flaunt it. My eye is always immediately drawn to the mile-long fly region, and I just think it’s a strange area to showcase. Perhaps it’s just a really honest style, since these “flaws” are uniquely female, and I am open to giving my eye time to adjust. But this is one look I am just not brave enough to attempt myself. For the most part, I still try to dress myself in a way that accentuates my greatest traits, and downplays my imperfections. As I would put cover-up on a zit, rather than just rock it. Maybe that’s my true flaw.
The first lady is so reminiscent of a ballerina posing, I think if her skirt were any longer, it would go overboard in volume! The second comes off as a huge femenist; very powerful in those pants, commands your attention definitely.
Sart, do you ever get a chance to talk to your subjects about their style? The subject’s viewpoint would add SO much!
i feel like i have been so negative towards your selections recently. it is as if your direction changed. HOWEVER, #3 is amazing. she looks fantastic. that outfit and the way she is carrying it would cause a car accident. i don’t know what you liked about #2. as for #3, again, i’m not sure what you are appreciating here–do you have some good memories of the 80′s perhaps? because i’ve been over the 80′s since 1987 NEXT !
Doesn’t #2 have the ‘love it or hate it’ look? Personally, I’m so turned on by it! Everything above the ankles says ‘suburban professional woman, but add the white plimsolls [plus that 'come hither' look] and it says ‘yes, I have to work for a living, but I still know how to PLAY! Are you game?’
Sorry folks, but white footwear, especially where it doesn’t necessarily belong, equals FUN! #2 is HOT! End of story.
again, I donÂ´t get people. the second is RAWKING. the 40s pants are smashing and downright hot and I would carry them anyday and still look like one hot mama. thx /swede
I seriously think swedes are bit slutty with our looks, in a good way, that is why we can pull some things off. i think that comes with a socialist and in the same time very allowing and liberal society that makes us confused ( in our identities) and daring in the same time.
