How do you get that? I think its a very original outfit. It may not scream weirdness. But there are plenty of unusual and well chosen details. Thats how a confident, sophisticated young woman shows her originality. In the details.
She’s gorgeous, so she’d have to work hard to have an item look terrible on her.
That being said, high-waisted jeans are NOT for even the majority of women. Style should work with one’s build, and high-waisted jeans simply serve to make the woman’s butt look huge. From the front, sure, they can add a flair of style, but from behind it just becomes a crime.
High-waisted jeans inevitably look like “Mom jeans” from behind
They look even better from behind. They emphasize the waist, and make legs look long, not that this girl needs it. The problem with low waist is it makes everyone look like their torso is too long, and their legs too short, and no one wants their torso to look long.
She’s attractive in spite of the jeans she’s wearing. To me, it looks like her jeans are eating her torso.
I think high-waisted styles are best when they’re fitted like loose trousers rather than like a pair of tights. The latter gives an unattractive bunching effect around the middle, even on the skinniest woman.
Now she really worked this look to pieces. What a beautiful silhouette, and I have yet to see the high waisted jean done so well. I dont care for the top, but it works for her. Unlike you trillina, I LOVE the skinny high waist, loose high waist on anyone gives such a granny-esque look.
Jean shapes will come and go. And the best rule is to consider your own body first, then look for fashionable jeans to fit it. She’s done exactly that, it just so happens she has a figure that can carry this style. For me, the Oxford heels here are the great “anyone can do” takeaway…
High-waisted jeans *do* make one’s waist look tiny (as opposed to low waisted styles that can give the slenderest girl a bit of a tragic muffin top). And for those of us with tiny bottoms and skinny skinny thighs, they don’t necessarily look like “mom jeans” — even from behind.
It all depends on the figure. Some gals, like me, tend to have thicker middles and skinny legs, and the low waisted styles will NEVER look good on us, while the high waisted styles can give us the illusion of a trim midsection.
Which leads me to wonder, Why doesn’t the Sart show pics of women whose clothing choices are *kind* to their figures? An anorexic teen (like the girl pictured here) looks good in anything. It would be more interesting to see a few pics of people with imperfect bodies whose smart, careful clothing choices make the most of what they’ve got.
A slim young girl of style will always be able to carry an on trend look, even if it flatters the very few. In some instances unflattering becomes that much more intriguing, because a woman of some style will always shoot for flattering! However, if one looks more closely at the design, it is apparent that these jeans were meant to be belted (slim metallic or black patent? would have been nice) and then folded over. With a true high waist jean,in the same silhouette, it would have been perfectly done. Old age and treachery prompt me to point out she will regret the snags which result from leaning that sheer top against that brick wall!
I’m not feeling this look. It seems unfinished. Despite the unusual jeans style, the look isn’t very exciting and I’m afraid to say, this woman looks as though she was found at the mall, not the streets of Stockholm.
My first impression was “wow”, but then I realised that was all about the girl from the waist up and ankles down. The more I looked at those jeans the more flaws I found – they are bunched and creased in so many places and look very unsleek and downright unsexy (and, this is uncool: uncomfortable.)
That’s one of the things about all the men you shoot. They all look so easy and as though they are having a good time wearing their clothes.
Bitch and moan! Really! What’s to complain about here? Probably no one could wear those jeans but her–nor would want to–but so what? She looks fabulous, pulling off the impossible. I love it when I see people looking so casual and elegant at the same time. Something to strive for.
i cant make up my mind about high waisted jeans! She looks great but i cant help but wonder what they look like from the back – but then again I am possibly the last person on earth to have gotten used to skinny jeans and I now own a few pairs so you never know…
Am I the only one here who thinks high waisted jeans will become mainstream? (Like skinnies, remember how everyone was bashing them when they first appeared?) I own a pair of high waisted jeans but have yet been brave enough to wear it. She looks terrific!
hi everybody i’m 15 years old I live in Paris .This look is amazing i really like the ” Taille – haute slim ” ( french ) i think it’s really beautiful . But the only thing it’s only for really really skin ( maigre) girls ! But it’s very nice . Bye Bye
In scandinavia & London (probably elsewhere in UK aswell) high-waisted jeans have allmost become mainstream.. I don’t like these pair that much – but simpler styles like “Acne Tube” is very flattering for the female body – so to those of you who thinks it looks “mumsy” … sorry!! Maybe you confuse “mumsy” with female shape!?
Like someone mentioned, high waisted is pretty much mainstream in london & the more style conscious euro countries … i must admit, i do find it hysterical that americans are criticising europeans on clothes … the irony!
p.s – the anon that called the girl anorexic … you should be ashamed of yourself – thats vile & disgusting.
What a beautiful Hollywood hairdo! I must say though that her outfit isnÂ´t very creative. When it comes to fashion, there is too many unwritten rules in Stockholm. People adapt to trends quickly, which doesnÂ´t necessarily have to be a bad thing, but it gets sooo boring (high waisted jeans etc.) Having that said, that is also what I appreciate with our capital. I guess itÂ´s kind of a love and hate relationship.
ps. Scott Schuman, you must have an awesome job! Keep it up!
