I agree. Don’t try this at home! Jacket is great. The pleated pants are not easy to pull off! I could never wear them. Wish we could see her shoes. And what type of bag has she got. I find that the “nerd” glasses are getting old quick. I’m already sick to death of them.
Cute! Love the jacket – fabric looks fabulous – with the striped shirt. What I can see of the bag I really like, too. The belt and glasses give the whole look fun and freshness. I am not a big fan of so many pleats, but the girl is adorable and carries this off well.
I love this too! It’s so unusual, yet also strikes Diane Keaton and equestrian chords. Look at that belt! So well done! Love the glasses too and the natural face. Feminine makeup would have ruined it, no? The way her jacket and pants work together is genius! It’s preppy/academic elegance with a wink. Killer!
I have to say, for me, the haircut and glasses in combination with everything else just makes it look like the 1980s. I mean, I think somewhere there’s a picture of my mother in almost this exact outfit (sans chain belt.
She seems one yellow coat-of-arms patch away from 1983… The glasses, pleating, gold chain and cropped silhouette feel like a costume, not an inventive re-adaptation of 20 years ago. I can’t help but wonder why you chose to highlight her… did she have something that just didn’t translate in the still picture?
this is hideous. i hate pleats. her glasses are square (and not in a good way), though they seem to be in style in paris at the moment. she needs a new “do”. the bag does not go w. the outfit. belt doesn’t make sense. it does look like she tried, though, so give her A for effort.
She’s a little Diane Keaton in that it seems all so wrong…but I like deliberate and this is deliberate. Tremendous confidence is needed here to pull this off and she does!…I’m guessing, of course, but I bet she’s fascinating to know.
Loving it. But it is unfair not to be able to see the rest of the outfit. Think it depends greatly on the cut of the pants (which seem baggy) and the shoes she’d be wearing. But it looks good thus far.
It was such a relief to read the comments about this outfit. I was so apprehensive that everyone was going to swoon, as usual, and once again I would be off in the corner by myself shouting “No, you can’t be serious!” P.S. I think I had those pants when I was in high school , as well as the striped shirt and the glasses. Probably wore it all with an Etienne Aigner belt.
mmmm at least she doesnt look like everyone else and tries to imitate what she sees on other people. fashion does and don’ts next year pleats will be in and the next they wont so how bout stop criticizing someone for being and dressing how they want
Love it. This girls style has personality and imagination and it looks like she is doing it for herself. All the people hating on this are no doubt your usual overly preened fashion sheep. Shes got it. You haven’t…ha!
Bring on the pleats! I love that classical 1940s look. I never completely gave them up. To those who think they’re ugly, consider how great Dietrich looked, Katie Hepburn, and Grace Kelly. I am well-proportioned and not a plus size, so I’m going for it. If you refuse, that’s your choice. The advantage of these pants are comfort without lycra and the ability to wear any panties you want without VPL! Remember that VPL became an issue again when tight-fitting, flat-front low rise pants came back in style from the 1970s.
