I love the layering and I’m starting to appreciate ankle boots with tights, but I still think that they really chop up a woman’s shilouette. I’d really much prefer pumps and a lot more leg, or knee-high boots. but that’s just me.
Beautiful photo, Scott. Rain on the streets of Manhattan. I love it. It’s very romantic. I can imagine walking up Fifth Avenue past Central Park, arm in arm with my girlfriend, sporting a wool overcoat and scarf, and carrying a black umbrella for the both of us.
I’ve never been to New York but it is on my wish list of places to travel to. As a city dweller my favorite city weather is rain so this photo makes me want to visit even more! Stylish and warm… thanks!
Thanks so much for switching to the new format where we can read the comments and see the picture. It makes all the difference — I can think through the comments so much better when the photo is right up on the screen while I read!
I think she has put together everything nicely. But all in all I don’t think there’s anything special about this. I find the colours a little blah. I’d like to see something bright against this pretty gal’s face:)
Damn I am obsessed with this look. They greys, blacks, and navy layers are something Ive been striving to achieve in a masculine way. The leather purse (or boots in my case) are also a must to balance the darker shades. Looooooove it!
I agree with Alicia (above) about the choppiness of ankle boots with a skirt, except that here it is not germane. Love a dark, near-monochromatic palette and this woman exemplifies the best of this look. She’s adult, but with a keen eye for trend without being jejeune.
I must also say that these beautiful rainy pictures and looks remind me of one of the greatest Saturday plans in the season: sleep until late, a walk under the rain, a bath and a great cup of tea (perhaps with a muffin…)
ITA with Alicia. The multiple line breaks in this silhouette work only if you are young, tall and thin. I’ve seen this look worn in my rural neighborhood on shorter, curvier middle-aged women, and the combination with the dark colors looks like a religious habit, not chic at all. It also adds pounds. Since I am this body type, I’m sticking with pencil skirts, lots of leg, pumps and tall boots.
