    incredible! loving the menswear-ish blazer … and the juxtaposition of the sexy lace up heels and the slouchy, rolled khaki's.

    I'm going for all this "prepster" look…preppy with a tad of edge!

    The shoes are amazing. A fresh take on the laidback, slouchy look.

    This is the best. An look that anyone anywhere any age can emulate. Except for the shoes (which are great), doesn't scream "fashion victim," mutton dressed as lamb, or TTH (trying too hard). Great counterpoint to see-through lace minidresses on middle-aged women.

    Are those Ann Demeulmeester shoes? Love them. The glasses rock too.

    I love how chic this outfit is, that Jacket/ the trousers. And that belt really does finish it perfectly. If I'm perfectly honest I don't love the shoes, but they compliment the outfit.

    Don't like the rolled trousers because they add a careless (though studied) sloppiness that seems to clash. Love everything else. I wish to place one of those black protective rectangles over the sloppy cuff area.

    And, to Anonymous, this woman is not mutton!

    but the blue behind her i like…

    she is dressed like a man, but looks like a women. I love how the only feminine parts of her body are her head and feets. there is nothing more important!

    the lines and the shape serpentine shape….all brilliant. I love the shoes most, however. They look like a modified pair of old bowling shoes (the kind you rent at bowling lanes). Maybe thats just because I can't see them close enough.

    And the mens kakhis are brilliant. She wears it so well.

    Agree, very nice shoes.

    With the exception of the shoes, I dressed like that in the 80s and the 90s…though maybe not the same designers, lol. Military khakis from the boyfriend, vintage Harris tweed jacket from a thrift, man's Hanes t-shirt and penny loafers. With the pennies, of course. Belt belonged to my late dad. Big ole' 80s tortoise shell sunglasses. The shoes bring this classic outfit up-to-date for the younger generation. Very nice!

    I don't like her, particularly. I love the pants and the T, but the jacket and the glasses have to go. The shoes are cool, though. She looks grumpy. A smile might have changed eveything……..

    I die a little bit inside every time I see ugly shoes on women. This is a take on men's boxing shoes which should never have seen the light of day on women.

    I love the rest – confident woman wearing blazer like on a duck hunting excursion in the middle of Parigi.

    I honestly think this pair of shoes is one of the ugliest I have ever seen. That said, I like the colours of her outfit, the shirt and the blazer. But flats and a smile would have made all the difference.

    GREAT! Wonderful to take mens clothing and make it feminine, even the shoes are feminized mens shoes. And her "tough" fighter's demeanor, she seems ready for a boxing match herself.

    Love the pants. They make the outfit. And I love her expression. I do get tired of smiley faces. She looks serious and fashionable. The glasses are great, and the jacket is amazing. the shoes i don’t love, but they work. I would wear this today, and this was a photo from two years ago. Thats something.
