Scrolling down this image, I first passed the shirt and thought, “meh,” then I passed the cinched waist on the jeans and thought, “ok, cute, nice proportions” but then I hit the shoes and my head exploded. I need those boots so very badly. Their soles remind me of Japanese sandals, but in combination with the jeans, the dark leather upper produces a weirdly chic construction worker look that I never would have thought of myself. Nice find, Sartorialist.
Harkens back to early 1990s, but for the shock of the boots. There’s care here, but something about the shortness of the top, bigness of the jeans, and clomp-clompness of the boots feels out of proportion to me.
Love the idea of this but there’s just nothing flattering about those jeans. They look stiff and awkward and way too big for her. I love the idea of doing something unexpected with your clothes, but fit has to ALWAYS factor into the equation… our clothes are still about looking good, right? There are better fitting boyfriend jeans than this!
This reminds me of an old SNL sketch about Gap – The Gap Girls as portrayed by Adam Sandler, Chris Farley and David Spade – the topic was how to wear the oversize jeans and the consensus was “just cinch it”!
Love the 1930′s ‘do and the edgy silk blouse plus the retro glasses with cell phone. Its very Grapes-of-Wrath-dustbowl chic. But the fit of the jeans could be better and the shoes are totally off. High top, black converse would have worked better.
Love this look! Casual, original, beautiful hair & make-up; seeing the bit of motorcycle/scooter adds to the casual image. Since she’s not smiling, it’s obvious this is not a phony, staged photo (ad). Love (I’m overusing the word, but your outstanding photography makes me stumble through my adjectives) it!
I love love love those jeans!!! Oh my I have wanted high waisted baggy jeans for some time now. Just like that!!! There is no way you could do better then those jeans. Tight on the waist, and baggy at the same time. She is such a genius. Everything is so though out!!!!
You know the jeans are very flattering. Just not in the typical way. They make her legs look longer then they actually are, and make her waist look small. Not because she is actually tall and leggy, but only because of the jeans. People just are giving her body credit, when the credit really goes to those magnificent jeans!
I think it makes perfect sense for this look to be in The Sartorialist, but she does not look good in this outfit, sorry
Too much of a devil may care attitude that actually works against her
If I didn’t know she’s holding a clutch with her other hand I would have guessed it’s a hammer or a screwdriver
I loathe the expression “boyfriend jeans”—which these are not! “Boyfriend jeans” are some horrid jeans that are distressed and pollute the planet and probably cause endless hardship to the sweatshop workers who produce them for the malls of America. This cool mademoiselle is wearing really nice, original Levis—the only acceptable jeans–the kind you break in yourself! The shoes are little too too, though, no?
Thanks – I have 10 year old dark jeans, never worn before, that have just been waiting for this kind of inspiration. Shoes are still a questionmark, but I am developing and idea… Your street photos are so much more interesting than the fashion week stuff, which is not bad either.
she’s like an interesting piece of architechture. The photo is very striking with the white top with a sliver of black against the backdrop of the black van with the black stripe. You have to be willowy to wear those jeans …. love them.
I don’t like it.
The baggy jeans, the shoes…
In 5 (or less) years this woman will reject this outfit.
Is as when we all see old pictures from us wearing “Saturday Night white slim to-the-limit suits ” or 70′s floral-abstract very slim shirts….
Otherwise, I love your other pics!!
Don’t love the shoes with the jeans but I love her for wearing them. We all need to be challenged otherwise fashion would never change (hello… Prada?). I do however LOVE these jeans, this is a kind of exaggerated 50s shape that I think looks gorgeous when worn with something super-feminine (like the cropped blouse and lipstick). I too would love to know what these are… Soooo over stretch denim!
