Are those culottes she was wearing? It’s a good monochrome look, and somehow the volume on the bottom works well too. Sart, do think about putting the comments in a popup box please? We’d like to be able to see the pictures as we comment on them.
I do love the Grey & Black combo…a staple of mine. Those pants almost remind me of a pair of elegant, Thai style “culottes”, with a dramatic wrap around tie in the front that I once owned. I don’t see the bulkiness problem that I had though…but, they have the same basic shape. Grey & Black is only grim for those who see it that way.
Zen sensibility on a Stockholmer. I believe those are Thai firsherman pants sheâ€™s wearing or at least theyâ€™re based on that pattern. They are de rigueur in the tropics and you can wrap them countless ways but she did well with a simple overlap especially with that black shirt and flat pumps which Europeanizes the look. We would wear those with flipflops or barefoot here in resort island Cebu.
this is one of the most wonderful combinations i’ve seen on this blog. black and grey are grim yes but she wears it off so smartly, without any level of hipsterness, cooly. i don’t know if ive ever actually see coluttes ? work well
i hate nothing more than that sporty look with “fun” colors for good weather! i think black is the perfect color for summer! all the whites, pinks and beiges get dirty quickly, are mostly see-thru in all the wrong places and make white europeans look sunburnt all the time and like they are constantly on vacation. a lightweight black cotton/batist, gold sandals and a long neglace. voilĂˇ, ready for summer in the city! makes everyone look elegant.
