    i like her face, the red lips. she’s cute.
    but her clothes …. ayayay!
    the shoes are a mess and i hope that tight, fake leather pants will never ever be in fashion again.

    She’s phenomenal. Is she a model? She has the subtle edgy elegance of one.

    Woah. Hard to pull off leather pants, but she looks cute.

    I love this so much I want to cry. The sweet face on this girl, and the contrast of snug pants on thin legs with the loose shirt is just fantastic. I look at this blog for the great photos of people not so much fashion but this photo really highlights to me how clothes really can make the person. Terrific work as always!

    Such a great, youthful take on architectural dressing! It’s just subversive enough to be interesting but not irritating.

    the pants look like the black lame leggings from american apparel.

    I love the sweater. I used to wear them like that back in the 80′s when I was her age, along with the skinny pants. No longer have the lower body for them, however. sigh.

    I really do not get the shoes comment?

    The whole look is pretty streamlined (you can hardly see the shoes) and I think it works.

    Yowsah, that is one hot outfit! How is it possible that she looks so feminine and masculine all at the same time?

    Are the pants attached to the boots?!? Is this one of those fetish ensembles dressed down for the day?

    If so, I actually like it!

    Love it! The legs make it and the tights work because they are paired with a loose sweater and a sweet face. Am seriously loving these Stockholm pictures. They’re taking me back to my 1980s high school days…but in a good way.

    I like the play on proportions she is doing, the loose on top with the very skinny latex leggings. I like that she also wore socks w/ her shoes, making her looking even taller.

    And I even like that she balances the edgy latex with subtle to minimal makeup & “undone” hair.

    She is very pretty. I like the combo of the skinny leggings and bulky top. I like her style.

    What mess??!! The entire outfit is so fabulous I can’t breathe. The pants are latex and the shoes or boots (I can’t tell) extend that look and those enviable legs. Two thumbs way up. These Swedes are so gorgeous.

    Incredibly beautiful … but her face is too romantic for this space age last-season-Balenciaga look. She’d look just perfect in a mini girly floral frock with platforms and a huge Chloe bag.

    I absolutely love it. And those are indeed latex, very trendy in Stockholm at the moment :)

    I love seeing your photos from Stockholm, as I can relate to the fashion more (even though it’s always nice and interesting to see what people are wearing across the Atlantic and in southern Europe). Thanks!

    I like the cut of the coat/sweater, very modern.

    She is pulling that look of very well and she has a beautiful face.

    Sart while you are in Sweden give us a visit in Denmark:-)

    I can see how people who don’t live in Sweden find this outfit really cool and all, but after reading on 1000 blogs, 27364 magasines and anywhere else you can read about fashion, those latex pants just don’t seem so interesting anymore. I’m sorry, she’s a good-looking girl and all, but there’s nothing creative about this look.

    i dont know about latex but i liked the leather leggings that was once featured in vogue, some shop in NY cant remember where. Also i found some in Derek Lam,fall collection. Would think of pairing it with a different top maybe a dress if its not too cold.

    Sart, Thank you so much for all this. By reading you every day my taste has developed and even my mother which has always criticized me now loves the way I dress!
    Just because I learn from your pictures and the comments of all the people the post in here!
    Thanks thanks thanks!!!

    It would be interesting to see you compare the Ostermalm fashion with the Sodermalm fashion. For an ex Stockholmer like myself, the differences are massive, but as an outsider, Sart, what sets them apart and where do they connect?

    I thought those might be the same American Apparel leggings as well.

    She certainly has the legs to carry off the latex leggings. I’ve seen it poorly done but this is great! Combined with the looser fitting sweater the whole outfit really works. The zip is perfect but I’d like to see more!

    It is the look of the moment for sure, but the textural contrasts and the white diagonal line are unique touches.

    She reminds me of Audrey Tautou from Amelie. She looks inhibited and a bit awkward, yet extraordinarily gorgeous.

    I’ve been really skeptical of the 80s revival over the last few years, but this is “like totally awesome” (can you tell I was there the first time around?). It’s a modern take. Love her confidence.

    Hmm, funnily enough this picture reminds me of the helmet debate. I think if this beautiful girl topped off her outfit with a glossy black helmet and a bike underneath, she’d be showing us how to do safe bikes right, not to mention those fabulous leggings.

    i love latex-leggins! it’s so hot. i also really like her loose shirt, the chain kind of makes the shirt. oversize mixed with tight is something i really think looks good in clothing.

    personally i wouldn’t want to wear all black, at least not nowadays, i’m really sick of the fact that the majority of swedish people almost only wear black/grey/white/dark blue clothes. it feels like many people are afraid of wearing clothes that stands out. we swedes are kind of famous for our minimalistic style i think.. it’s just not so me.

    anyway, colours or not, this girl has a great outfit!

    @atheniangirl, 3:13AM:

    if i see another girl in a “mini girly floral frock with platforms and a huge Chloe bag” i’m going to scream.

    sure that is a darling outfit, but your idea of perfect is boring, for a lack of a better word.

    this girl inspires.

    I believe this is something of a typical Swedish look. Very easy to put together but really hard to actually look good in. She looks fab because of her skinny legs (the look wouldn’t work on a chubby girl) and because she has a cute face (if you’re not cute- don’t try it).

    If I’m not mistaken, those gorgeous PVC pants are Les Chiffoniers. Love them on her.

    Would have been great to see her try a more metallic pant, have yet to see real life photos of metallic trousers worn effortlessly.

    Wow this is amazing!! Love the great ‘vinyl-zip’ theme…very industrial but kind of ‘over it’ at the same time. what an aura…

  62. Laurita:Editha

    August 27, 2007 at 5:42 am

    @ sart and everyone else: i see it now, the pants are not leather but latex. anyway, it’s too much plastic.
    and the plateau shoes are so 90′s …
    you should go back to baiscs, to clean, natural stuff.
    cotton, silk, wool, linen, …
