I love the belt low on the hips… and are those Doc Martens??? She is a modern, elevated goth girl after my own heart. This would have been even better with old school platform creepers i/o the Docs. First Morris Day, now Siouxsie…what’s next, Morrissey?
This is such a great style ! The coat is amazing and I’d love to find a similar one… I’m a sucker for a black or navy coat.. The narrow trousers and boots are just perfect with the heavy belt on this beauty…
ooooo, now that's a stylish coat! usually i don't like oversized buttons, but they really look good here. wish i could pull off this low-belt style, but it probably takes a taller silhouette (she looks tall-ish). the cut is clearly fabulous on this girl! oh, and that all black (or is it navy?) with her black hair & pale skin…divine.
I think that the dropped waist with the oversized buttons is a bit overwhelming for her. The waist isn’t working with her body, it looks like it might be hard to walk. But, to her credit, she is adorable!
i love it on her BUT while shopping for a coat this year i couldn’t find anything except for big ol’ buttons and dropped waist belts. this coat is done well but i don’t think the details you pointed out are particularly special.
This pic is an excellent illustration of the importance of dressing for your body type. A curvy girl with boobs/booty and short legs cant really pull off this look, but her thin, long frame wears the coat incredibly well.
A) I love oversized buttons for their graphical nature. B) The dropped waist totally works on her. This pic is an absolute optical wonder – she looks 7" tall, especially since there isn't anything else in the pic to reference her height. C) I have been trying to find a way re-integrate my Doc boots & this provides me with the reinforcement I need to confirm that they are still FAB.
Yeah, indeed, I don’t fancy the belt part either. I got a black winter coat with dropped waist belt from Elie Tahari a few years back, and I found the belt at the hip so unflattering that I finally had to get rid of it all together, after which it looked fab.
Beautiful coat, definitely one of the better ones I’ve seen all season. Like the pants and her haircut too. If she had worn different shoes she’d elevate the outfit to crazy chic and less goth. But who cares, she looks great.
I beg to differ. I think it looks too busy not to mention slightly unflattering at the waist. It seems to me like the kind of coat that would be good for one season and then you’d get tired of it. On the other hand something like this would make a good “second coat” (or third ahah) for those days when you wake up with an extra spring in your step! lol
Like so many above me I just can’t get on board with this drop-waist belt. Maybe it’s just because I’m incredibly long-waisted, but I balk at nearly everything that makes the torso look long and the legs short (low-rise jeans anyone?). Unless you have extremely long legs and a very short torso, why wear such a thing? For all I know this girl does have long legs — but who would know.
Move the belt up a few inches and I’d love this. I agree with Sart on the buttons, though — they’re quite nice!
this coat is alright….the most compelling idea about this posting is just that it’s a man’s coat worn by a woman. this is the same sarah that Sart photographed wearing a Dior men’s suit earlier this year?…last year? makes me think the coat is also men’s Dior…
she’s pretty cool…she sold me my Balenciaga bag a few years back when she worked there…and she’s also from the same midwestern state as I am.
lastly, wondering if it’s more polite to say…”It was great to finally see a (young) lady wearing a black winter coat…” instead of ‘girl’. not likely that a sentence on this post would say “It was great to finally see a boy wearing…” probably would say ‘guy’ or even ‘man’…just saying.
Well, for you who have a hard time finding unique wool coats and jackets, especially if you're on a budget, you can "borrow" my trick. I buy a very basic, inexpensive wool coat at H&M or a similar place that fits my budget. Then I go buy a secondhand coat with great vintage buttons (or buy just the buttons themselves). Then remove those ugly plastic buttons on the new coat, and replace them with the old vintage buttons. Presto, you have a unique coat, that looks expensive and unique.
