Love this photo! It just goes to show that those “rules” about women not being able to wear a horizontal striped shirt are hogwash. What a beautiful look, especially with the pops of color in the sweater and scarf. Love it.
If I saw her on the street, I would think she looks so French! I love Chuck’s and have worn them since high school. They never go out of style (nor do the classic Vans slip on’s – no photos of those?).
Is she shopping in town? Going to the beach? Is it sailing season?
And it’s not that women can’t wear horizontal stripes, it’s that not every woman *should*. This woman definitely can and it’s appropriate that she does.
A great look with “shorter” upper body proportions–it’s all about the natural waistline with belt, 3/4 sleeves and short jacket length. Even her scarf sits high–no length at all in her upper torso, very cool.
I love the whole look and normally I see the wrong shaped women wearing horizontal stripes so it’s refreshing seeing it done well here. Her mixing of colors are making me look forward to the next 5 months or so
I really like the ruched look right now. Yeah, the whole oufit, it really just works. I love the little orange… (is it a watch?) piece on her wrist there. Love the pink nails, the stripes, the scarf. Yea, it just works. <3
The colorful and graphic top half of her is great, especially the shrunken yellow jacket and the orange watch. Pants got really detailed and complicated in the early 90s. We need more time before we re-visit that; although the neutral color is great with the neutral Cons and bag (ombre, dip-dyed? Cool). The cop aviators are mildly so menacing, so it gives her a playing tough look. A bit too masculine for me but it gives me ideas.
She looks like a typical mom at my daughter’s school here in the south of France. The striped sailor shirt is a classic. And the French love little details like the ruching and bow on the pants. I realized I stuck out here because my clothes were all streamlined NYC stuff, whereas women’s clothes here have little details, from unusual buttons to little tucks or pleats. Always something to keep it from being generic. Last thing that makes me peg her as a francaise: she has good posture.
I love the jacket, love it. And the scarf compliments it so well. Though I think the pants are not great, their length is necessary because it goes so well with the aviators, the bag and the chucks (my least favourite item of clothing, ever!!). All in all, she looks pretty awesome.
This is totally too ordinary for my taste. As I come from helsinki, Finland, Iam used to see women dressed like this every spring, every summer and every fall. I don’t like it all, but that’s just because everyone in south helsinki dresses like this!
This is the post that finally made me buy a striped top. The other posts and stylings of striped tops I’ve seen have been a bit too traditional or cliche; but this one opened my imagination to what I can do with it.
This looks very Scandinavian to me. Sea-breezy and early summery. I love the feel of the outfit. Or the feeling it gives me. This kind of style would be my favourite. I have to get rid of the dark colours in my own wardrobe though.
Plus, the pinkish colour of the nail polish and the orange of the wrist watch go together oh so well.
This lady is very stylish. And very American looking to my Australian eyes:) I love the mix of yellow & blue. Like the sun & the sky. Great combination of colour. She put a lot of effort into her relaxed look.
Love the jacket, love the scarf, love the shirt, but those pants and Chucks really cheapen the entire look. Not that I’m against mixing high and low fashion, but those pants look like they are from Old Navy and completely clash with the chicness of the upper part of her outfit. I would suggest a pair of slim cut men’s chinos rolled up and tasteful flats or heels.
If I saw her on the street, I would think she looks so French! I love Chuck's and have worn them since high school. They never go out of style (nor do the classic Vans slip on's – no photos of those?).
