Her outfit looks like it took inspiration from the splattered graffiti background. As long as she stands there all day, she's good to go! No, seriously, considering all the layers and combinations, it doesn't feel disjointed until I get to the socks. But at second glance, I kind of like them, too. Maybe she's planning to take the socks off when she gets to her destination.
I really like the way the clothing choices in the last two photographs reflect the character and essence of Mercer St as well as the subjects. It's interesting to see how a person's environment influences their clothing! Urban, eclectic, intelligent and sophisticated yet slightly worn. great photos
I'm glad to see some men commented with approval because my first impression was "love the look but tres man repellant". I'm happy I was wrong about that because I think everything about her is wonderful.
Her hair and glasses are very nice. I really like the top layers, specially the blue shawl. I don't like the bottom layers, gray shorts and top…but I can only see a little and so don't know if they are nicer on their own. I like the socks and shoes, but not with this outfit. I think these layers would have rocked if she had worn some military boots or ankle boots of some sort.
This is a great photo and the girl herself is lovely, but her clothing looks exactly like the graffiti behind her, a hot mess. I really try to see the creative genius in this but it's ugly and I'm surprised why people are scared to call this out. It's like following a pied piper down the lane to crazyville. :)
i always ask myself where is the red line that separates good from bad taste…this picture really reminds me this question..because the girl has her own style and it is obviously not a classical or seen one…and for me it looks really confusing but if she felt that way she has the right to do it and i like it…so…is it good taste just personality? http://www.lascialf.it
I love all the elements in this look. The deep blue scarf unifies everything and the socks/shoes/black tights add just the right twist of humor. The mix of textures is daft and brainy all at once. The single grey tiger pantaloon leg is just transcendent. Love!
I love her look. It's fantastic how all those layers work together to create the whole look. I can't decide if I love or hate the socks, but then I imagine the outfit without them and it just wouldn't be the same. So I guess I love them, lol! Loving her hair and those sunglasses too. Very chic overall.
I love everything about her look! It's so Yamamoto-Miyake with a touch of V-v-n Westwood. I don't know if its the combination of the colors–both on her and off her in the background, the out-of-doors lighting, the awesome photographer/blogger who took his photograph (he-he), and/or the cut of the pieces. However, it all works together. I love the layering…if you're gonna go for lots of layers, go for it big like she did. And, boy, did she ever! Her hairstyle and her glasses just gave her outfit the right attitude, and her socks added just enough kitsch so that there's a bit of fun with her look.
I'm sorry, but this isn't working for me. There's too much going on here, and they're all saying different things. This is Annie Hall after she discovered crack. It's an urban Ghillie Suit (Google it, fashionistas), the sartorial equivalent of Tourette's Syndrome.
Sorry, I'm just being honest, dears. Sometimes, you just have to call it when the empress has no clothes.
Love the mixture of lengths; I count, like, seven or eight layers. It's like nested folders containing the secret files of her personality. It's also cool to see someone wearing that many rings so casually, the mitts set them off nicely. And those shoes are badass.
That coat is crazy beautiful, and just anchors the whole thing. I'm really inspired by the mixture of gray, deep red and brown with rich blue. So unexpected. I think I might try a variation on this scheme tomorrow.
Really a very thoughtful, interesting and self-assured look which strikes me as very mature and sophisticatedly complex for someone so young.
The socks seem to say, oh I don't take any of this too seriously. But with how well (and modernly well!) the rest of the colors and textures and densities work together, it seems false to even suggest she doesn't care if the socks "go."
Wow. Her face is so amazing. But I agree with those who think this is a bit too much. In my eyes, the outfit would be perfect if she took of the redish coat, the trousers, the socks and switched out the shoes with some totally black ones. Then she would look so elegant. But sure, she is independent who dares to walk out with this outfit. Really outstanding, indeed.
there in nothing feminine about this ensamble. she is young and as such you can pull off a black garbage bag as a dress, but that doesn't make it a fashion statement. layers don't represent sartorial immagination and grand statements. she was probably just cold :) mc.
