She repurposed those men’s slacks beautifully by wearing them high-waisted, thus allowing a nice rhythm for the flow of the proportions from top to bottom. Her palette is inspired.
And Michigan! My brother-in-law is a Michigan grad; he takes my adorable little nieces, dressed as Michigan cheerleaders, to the football games…so cute!
This look is so fascinating in that if she had for instance, dreadlocks, it would be a completely different look! The combination of bright, unexpected colors and textures next to the perfectly styled and highlighted hair is great! I’ve been inspired to go thrift shopping this weekend!
In Michigan, the name for an obvious non-U of M grad sporting U of M gear in close proximity to a Michigan sports event is a Walmart Wolverine. I’m not sure what to call the polar opposite of this: a person who could very well be a U of M grad, wearing U of M gear absolutely nowhere near a Michigan sports event. A Migrant Maize and Blue fan? An Ex-pat Aficionado?
This is a silly thing to be thinking about. I like her pants.
When I lived in Germany in high school, I always got a chuckle out of the Germans who sported shirts with fake US sports teams (like the famous Pittsburgh Tigercats). The shirts were obviously sold to appeal to European Americulturephones while skirting licensing fees.
So it’s nice to see this chic woman sporting a tee from a real US school (and my alma mater to boot). Credit should be given where credit is due. That said, her handbag choice is a major league faux pas. Never, ever pair red with Michigan apparel. Never. Spread the word, sartorialists.
one of my favorite things about paris is that everyone you see looks like they put some thought into what they were wearing. Whether they’re wearing designer stuff or not, everyone takes some care with their appearance. A college basketball tank with pumpkin colored trousers and a rainbow colored embroidered indian belt, and throw in some handmade braceletsâ€¦ it works and it looks damn cool
The Marais might as well be the Michiganieme arrondissement. I happen to know for a fact that there’s some Michigan fans living either on Rue de Turenne or Rue de Temple, because one evening in 2006 I heard “GO BLUE!” echoed by another more distant “GO BLUE!” around 9:3o at night when Michigan defeated Michigan State. At about 3 a.m. that night those same two windows woke up the whole neighborhood when Magglio Ordonez hit a home run to put the Detroit Tigers in the World Series.
I have an entire group of Michigan U graduate in-laws that rock this look, weigh five times as much and can’t pull off irony. Good thing she’s beautiful and I suspect has never suffered a Midwestern Winter.
holy smokes! is everyone blind or is it just the usual posse of yes-men? she is a beautiful woman, true, but her outfit is all kinds of ugly. i really must stop reading the comments here because the ridiculous avalanche of superlatives about the ugliest of outfits gives me indigestion.
Exquisite are the hue of her lens. Her eyewear echoes the unique and creative designs of circa 1980s Christian Dior Frames. It is remarkable the manner in which eyewear designs today mimic the designs of the past which are simply impossible to replicate.
She manages to make the cut and length of her pants work. Her sandals meet up with the pants exactly and the colorful belt is a nice touch. But the Michigan tank…she wears it and still looks elegant. Not slouchy at all. How is that even possible? Some women just have it like that I suppose.
