    Love the first white top, and black and white are so simple and classic, yet always look brilliant.

    I do love a limited palette. Black and white always looks elegant – and, of course, having a wonderful figure doesn't hurt!

    black can be worn year round with the right fabrics, its just so reliable!!

    Love the 3rd girl on her bike, I guess those are the Acne flats? They look so cool on, simple but chic.

    it's a vintage bike frame (60's, 70's?) that's been
    built-up with new parts and wheels. Great idea for a fashionable city bike. I think it's a Fuji.

    There is something so amazing about black and white in the heat of summer. As if those who don't wear the bright colours of summer are defying the rules…The result in this case: stunning.

    I stray away from black during the summer because I fear that it looks "too hot." But these girls look gorgeous and fresh! Esp the one in the second photo.

    Yes, I really like how you can count all of the first girl's ribs. Sexy!

    But in all seriousness. I do love the photos and especially, the worn out boots in the first photo — they look like the ones painted by Van Gogh! Worn to perfection.

    That boot-sock combo in the first shot is pretty interesting. Haven't seen that much before. Objectively it shouldn't work as it cuts the calf in half visually – kind of like unflattering cowboy boots. And yet for this woman it's definitely working. Definitely something best attempted by the long-of-leg.

  60. Joy

    I really like the third picture, not just because of her clothes, but also because of her attitude. That's what really makes an outfit unique.

    I love this site but i think, as far as photos of women are concerned, there is a tendency to just publish photos of beautiful young girls, who are usually nicely dressed but sometimes nothing particularly amazing (eg this one?) rather than stylishly dressed girls and women. There is sometimes a noticable lack of older women, which is when stylish dressing really counts! please dont be sexist, … we want good dressing, not more youth worship!!!

    WEAR A FRIKKIN HELMET!!!!!! I guess some ppl will never learn… until someone, or they, die. Like my dear friend TB. She left a 1 year old daughter and a devastated family and group of friends behind.

    And it could all have been avoided by a h e l m e t.

    WEAR A HELMET!!!!!!!

    The fad for fixed wheel bikes is just that – a fad. Wait and see how many people trade them in for geared bikes once they realise they're developing thighs like tree trunks – not attractive.

    The bike is a fuji feather, probably '09 or '10, with new handlebars and a basket.

    Sart, I love it whenever you manage to capture positive energy from your subjects. Like what you have done here.

    Positive energy has nothing to do with age: it has everything to do with attitude.

    The photograph of the lady in Florence left me slightly deflated; her melancholy "diffused" through that picture. Such is the power of the image….

    Photo#2: The dress and the purse/bag looks perfect together. I'm not so fond of the shoes though.

    I agree with the post about how frequently we see young, beautiful girls on this site whose style is nice but nothing out of the ordinary (as here). You see this same style on young people literally everywhere. Agree too that it's rare to see stylish, sophisticated older women with polish here. Strangely enough, there's plenty of diversity with regards to the gents, with all age groups and all kinds of looks represented.
