Just because she isn’t wearing a one of a kind piece of art work, or has her undies on the outside of her skirt doesn’t mean its un original. She is putting her own spin on an outfit other people might wear. Besides, who cares. She is wearing it all very, very well. You could learn a lot from her.
And her color combination is adorable, and so is the way she is standing. My goodness people sure have a lot of “pointers” for others, don’t they.
Agree with Hoi Polloi. It’s just a hipster costume now. But you know, I appreciate that she’s rocking some kind of look. There was intent in the way she got dressed and that’s better than I do most days, that’s for sure.
A kaleidoscope of colour! I’ve never seen such an array of colours in one real-life look! And she pulls it off without looking like a clown! I think the stance is more confidence and korkiness than self-consciousness. The ciggie and oversized shades lead one to believe that.
Y’all have gotta relax(!) the hipster comments, methinks……. She is a definitely “in-the-know” gal based on her color choices, and defiant stance. I think she appears very confident, but relaxed. and in my book that’s more than half the battle. There may have been an item or two that I would have done differently (due to my obsessive stance on not ever being overdone–NEVER, never!) however, I think it works here, and for her in particular, in that she is: a) young: b) good-looking; c) obviously feeling fine about her look. It’s all about the attitude– or it should be, anyway.
Apart form the turquoise/red combo, I agree with the unoriginality comment – another skinny wannabe hipster looking like a jumble sale. Layering can look so great done well, but I don’t think that’s the case here.
Young, thin, a pretty face, hairstyling in sync…all a good start! For my sensibilities, there are a couple of incongruous layers. The jacket looks nice and warmish for the fall, color is beautiful…but the light blue t-shirt dress underneath is too summery in contrast. The scarf could go with the jacket…except the nice jacket is makin’ the scarf look old and stretched out and tired. The leggings are okay…Wait, I think I’ve got it: Get rid of the t-shirt, button up that coat, replace the scarf, add some red or black shoesies…now we’re talking. I think now it’s the t-shirt and the scarf that throw the jacket and leggings off. We could put a minidress underneath and she would be cuteness defined.
Another great photo with good intensity. I like her look. Her hair is so cute, and I like the overall shape of things. Everyone else here has so masterfully dissected the details, so my focus is on two things: 1. The color pallete *needs* to be trimmed a little: I think the green shoe is wrong. A metallic/silver high heel would improve the posture of the shot and give her a pizzaz that the flats deflate. 2. She is wonderful, pulling off a nice waif look, but her hands look so frightfully thin. Slightly adjusting up her daily calories would be better; not being such a stick-figure would look good on her.
I like the incongruous aspect of the look – it’s like she’s fighting the changing of the seasons. Summer blue green, sunglasses barefoot in flats vs autumn red coat scarf and black leggings. She’s a dead ringer for maggie gyllenhaal. I suspect she’s the type who looks good in almost anything. Only those who are beautiful, young and thin can pull off the slouchy, rumpled back-of-the-closet look.
You’re all wrong! this color palette is amazing, these are pretty much complimentary colors that are contrasting eachother and making the other pop. Turquoise and red are totally fall colors if done right.
she looks like a young lara flynn boyle to me…but i can’t really see lara flynn boyle wearing that outfit. it looks cute on her though…although i see what everyone’s saying that it’s cookie cutter trendy…the colors aren’t so typical though.
