On The Street….Mixed Message, New York

I really like the crazy mix of a tailored, 3/4 sleeve jacket(notice the longer gloves) with military pants and Converses.

Some might say that it looks like two different outfits mixed together but I think that is the charm.

    i love every element of this outfit. i’m not sure about putting them all together, blender style, but i give her points for carrying it off with such aplomb.

    It looks alright. Although, dark shoes would have complimented the look. Nice jacket! And, of course, a friendly face! A smile is always nice.

    That’s an amazing coat! Those buttons apace with that curved cut is very eyecatching. But what I really love is that the designer didn’t settle with just that feature and added a cowl kneck for a contrast in texture. When the coat is buttoned up, it falls so nicely against the rest of the garment.

    Does anyone know who designed this? Thanks in advance.

    she works at lucky magazine and is by far my favorite contributor!! i think her name is ann. she is absolutely fabulous all the time in a slightly subversive but still sharp way that i covet.

    I like her coat. Is that a scarf or a sweater neck?

    Do you know who this lady is? Because she really really looks like the market editor of Lucky magazine.

    Here I am again to covet the jacket and those gloves. I love their length. Nice green trousers as well.

    She looks fabulous down to the tips of her toes. Anyone can look polished in matching dress clothes. But to look so crisp and stylish in casual pants and sneakers is a skill I think you have to be born with. And I covet that coat!

    Isn’t she one of the fashion editors of Lucky? She always has one of those “What I Want” spreads at the front of the mag.

    I’d be willing to bet that she thought it out quite carefully. Or, maybe she’s just the kind of magical girl who DOESN’T think it out and somehow gets a fantastic result anyway. I love the olive-drab trousers with Navy.

    the jacket is awesome, the pants are cool..but together not so much. my rule of thumb, use of volume up top,then slim on the bottom and vice-a-verse.

    How funny that so many of us recognize her from Lucky. Is it her? She just had a baby. A few months ago they showed her pregnancy outfits. Being a new mom, I like seeing the post baby outfit!

    love this outfit! the outfit would have looked more cohesive w/ grey pants… but the green adds some funk! i like this look a lot!

    Read the first paragraph, then looked at the pic.

    ‘I like everything going on above the waist,’ I thought, ‘but nothing on the bottom.’

    Then I see your second paragraph: “Some might say that it looks like two different outfits mixed together…”

    Not sure about the charm but is it possible to say I like half of her style?

    I might be wrong, but maybe I’m right when I say that this lady may or may not be named ann (or anne) and she may or may not work for Lucky Magazine. But I’m not entirely sure it’s her. Does anyone know? Anyone?

    If I were Anne Keane I would look good in this outfit, but since I am not “les baskets,” as sport shoes are called in France, would stick out like sore thumbs.
    Style either you have it or you don’t…if only wearing the clothes made it true!

    Anne Keane is/was (?) the best dressed pregnant woman out there! I love that she does not conform to wearing maternity clothes when pregnant.

    That’s Anne Kwon Keane, if I’m not mistaken. She’s the (Fashion) Market Director at Lucky and use to photograph for the FOB editorial “Lucky Editor’s Picks.” Is that her post-baby? Because she looks pretty fabulous! (Love the coat!)

    I love that outfit – that coat is great. Definately an outfit I’d wear.

    Absolutely charmimg and fresh. I agree with you completely. This is her own spunky take on everything. Thank you! This will spread some new ideas around.

    the ‘blender style’, as misshoax put it, is adorable, a real eye catcher, i think it simply works, and the white shous complement it

    I don’t like the outfit that much cause the wide pants make a not so flattering silhouette, but I have to confess it’s a nice jacket indeed!

    I have Regina Spektor playing in the background while I look at this. It fits.

    Thanks for the sweet pic!

    She may be a fashion editor, and recently pregnant, whatever; unless she has a foot injury, the shoes are disappointing. She has the creds and the jacket to try it, but it fails.
    I’m not suggesting that a fashionista wear standard black boots; she could do better than that.

    I’m sure this person (we know now who it is) does have great personal style BUT I do think this look speaks to our generation (30-something) quite generally – it’s US in a nutshell, precisely because of the mix. As Scott said when profiling his readers taste a few months back, our age group just loves to splurge on a Marc Jacobs killer top or a swank piece from Mayle, or even a bespoke skirt, and then dress it down oh-so-casually. Perhaps some like Ms. Keane do it better than others, but she’s hardly the only one working such a magical highstyle/low mixed look. She may be a leader, but damn, we’re a great pack.

    I agree with the poster who had the reaction of seeing her first as the Lucky Editor and then seeing the outfit! I’m so used to her face from her (formerly) monthly “want I want now” page.

    I don’t like the mishmash. For me this is what happens when I am late for something and naked–must put on whatever shoes, whatever pants, and since I’m late don’t even have time to change it out once I see that it really doesn’t go.

    I don’t think this outfit is deliberate urban blending–if it is, it fails. So many of the posts here ARE perfectly and gorgeously illustrative of urban blending, and to me this is “just running out the door grab the sneakers next to the bed” and only realize how you look as you dash past shiny windows.

    And yes, the jacket is incredible!!!

    perfect example of lady and girl. the kicks(shoes) work because they are unadorned, and to pair ladylike gloves with with this outfit is genius.

    I think it’s a charm, too. Outruling the rules is the best.
