Oh, I just love her outfit. Wow, what a statement she is making here. The leopard shoes, something I would never have gone with because I am not bold enough, are wonderful with the outfit, they make it!
Oddly enough her hair, with the exception of the color which is darker than mine is exactly like mine. Same cut, same amount of unruly curliness. I always think my hair is out of control, but after seeing this photograph I'm thinking I look pretty cool:)
I have pants like that! For the first time ever in your photos I own something they're wearing. Going to wear them tomorrow – love the flashes of orange and yellow she's paired them with, I've always gone much more muted, but it looks great!
This is so great. I love the jubilant mix of colors and prints. On paper, it would never work, but together it's totally cohesive. My favorite part is her aubergine lipstick- it goes surprisingly amazingly with the neons!
The same woman whose photo you posted last month. She was wearing a red dress and some grey heels. Love her look and love her haircut. So much so I showed her photo to my hairdresser to give him an idea of the proportions I wanted. What a great shot!
Great color concept and the flashy bright colored tops in its simplicity. The allover print on the pants is lovely too, but the animal print on the ballarinas is a bit too much, but not at all disturbing.
How Italian! Always celebrating the joy of life with clothing. I don't agree with the leopard print shoes, but applaud it anyway. Amazing how Euro women accept their hair type and celebrate it, rather than forcing a style, if its curly, frizzes in the heat, whatever, style it accordingly, and put on a big smile.
I'm going to be a jerk and nit pick. I love everything but the shoes. I don't hate them, but to my eye they don't go as well as something perhaps in a metallic or reptile or maybe even a pair of TOMs. If I met her in real life, I wouldn't notice because her energy and attitude are so appealing. In a photo, there's more opportunity for close scrutiny.
You simply gotta love it. Wonderful mix. And it's really her, isn't it? She owns it. Love the bangles, the lipstick. Nice how she matches natural patterns, different but analogous, and neon colors, different but analogous. It's all very smartly done, balancing it out with the relaxed shapes.
I'm not loving this outfit, although I applaud her for trying. The top part is great, the orange with the yellow cami, but then, it falls apart near the bottom, with those shoes. I don't love them, and I'm not sure about the pants being rolled up, they look cheap and nylonish, which is not what she intended, I'm sure.
The look is a little bit "crazy lady" but she is so bold and her smile and hair are so fabulous that I bet she elicits more smiles than glares on the street! There is nothing like a woman who is comfortable in her own skin.
I'm not entirely sure how she's done it, but my goodness, she looks wonderful. I think the shoes save the look–with more "appropriate" shoes the outfit would look calculated and "fashiony"; the shoes, however, suggest that she just woke up in a really good mood and grabbed the things that make her happy–and that's style!
This reminds me of a photo from a while back–a woman in a really bright primary color on a city street–and Scott pointed out in his caption something to the effect of: whatever you may think of the outfit, this is how to use color to make yourself the star in an urban (i.e mostly grey-palette) setting. I would definitely have trouble getting up in the morning and choosing to wear yellow and orange–but it's interesting to think about color and clothing in this way, strategically, like a set designer.
clashing your colours and your prints is a high risk game for anyone but this woman shows us how it's done! By only having one bright item and keeping her accessories minimal she looks striking and chic, rather than mad and possibly colour-blind (as can happen when going for this kind of look). The top is such a fantastic colour, not something you could wear without and equally fantastic tan though. X
Hmmm. I don't get it. But I am trying. Her smile and stance so overpower the outfit – that is what I think "works" here. What gives me pause is – I think – the black space in the pants. that's what I keep looking at to change. But as I look I am struck by how – perhaps – these disparate elements – disparate seeming elements – really do go together. The leopard spot shoes picking up the black space on the jungle pants that hold up the burst of floral color in the orange and yellow… no, I just don't get it.
This whole outfit is fantastic, aside from the shoes. I love the shoes in and of themselves, and I am a definite believer in mixing prints, but I don't think these two prints work together. However, outside of this I love everything!
I have to say I don't really like it. The clashing of colors isn't really original at all I see women dressed like this everyday on the streets of LA and they are normally covered in dirt, which is the only difference.
Only in the last couple of years have a few Milanese men and women begun to wear a splash of bright colors in town (the beach boardwalk is a whole other matter). Such splashes of color still are not common in Milan. Walking around in Milan and Rome for years, as I have and do, you'll realize that there's a big difference from area to area. Street wear in Rome can be more vibrant and relaxed, for lots of reasons. In traditionally more conservative Milan, I do see, however, what appear to be retired men in a colored pair of pants (a deep red is popular, for example) looking quite wonderful, not golf-course-y, at all. In this particular picture, you'll notice that it is one splash of color, and not a jumbled mix of bright colors. That's one of their keys to success in lively, but sophisticated, color use, I think
REALLY? I would define this as COLLIDING MONOLOGUES. There is a fine line between "oohh – that's eccentric and styling" AND "thats just wrong". Too much going on on all levels – prints, colors, textures. Maya Popkin @ TheSTyleDialogues.com
She is so full of life and her smile is fantastic. And I love her pants. If the women dressed as wonderfully as this where I lived, I would be so much happier. I can only take a couple of muffin tops and UGGs per day.
Sometimes i get discouraged because of being flat and not being considered as a "real woman". Well her outfit changed my outlook. Sort of. I love how she created volume at her bottom half but not totally being careless about the top.
LOve this. I remember her in the red dress outside the Gucci? show. For me what works is the tanks (with the orange bracelet) – the neon and the cut of the orange tank especially have the perfect touch of 80s vibe, without going over the top. Very cool woman.
I love the dark red lipstick with her dark brownish/reddish hair. Its the best combination which I will definitley use when I get older! (I reckon my blonde hair will eventually turn brown when I'm older so I am getting prepared)
Scott, will you PLEASE come to New Zealand, there are some really fruity dressers over here(including me!). Not to mention some great shopping and beautiful places to take great pictures.
What a cheerful shot! Fresh, bright with a citrus splash. Love the layering of the bold, floaty tops, the trousers are to die for and the shoes are an interesting design. Something I would wear, it's so much fun to be brave and 'out-there' with style. Love the wooden bangle, goes really well, and the slung baggy bag I think I can see behind her finishes this laid-back, cool, pop outfit.
I can not help but feeling like she is looking at me with that sincere gush; the orange with yellow shirt, orange & brown bracelets, and red lipstick and brown hair framing her face really highlight her upper half.
I love seeing beautiful women wear outfits that no one else could pull off. Thanks so much for showcasing true and natural beauty.
I had a Sartorialist moment myself today. ;-) I was at church and a woman in form of me was wearing a white/black polka dot oxford with brown, gray, and purple flowers. And the whole time I just looked at her, wondering how on earth she was pulling it off!
