    tights are not pants.

    apparently girls worldwide need to be reminded of this.

      I wish there was another photo of the woman with her arms looser so the silhouette of the coat might be easier to see. I am doubtful of wearing tights as outerwear but think this look would be as effective with a pair of fitted shorts. Anyway, she’s quite a beauty and that hair is gorgeous.

    this is such a great look – i love how she’s playing with the different hues of red/cranberry in her color accented accessories. masterful!

    She looks fierce, I love it. The colors work really well together, too.

    They look more purple to me. I have a pair in that exact color.

    the shortness of the coat with the colored leggings is uber sexy.

    I love this picture and every picture youve ever taken (woop number 1 fan!) but im kind of *over* this swedish girl look. I live in barcelona (2nd biggest city in sweden apparetly ;-) and i feel this whole style is worn by so many girls and generaly they stomp around the town like (as my boyfriend so eloquetly put it) “those robots from the begining of the fifth element”. I like to see something new…something diffretn..chic she may be, but wheres that somthing extra that would make you look twice? I dont see it…Ok and sorry if i offended anyone/swedish people/robots from the begining of fith element but, cant we move on from this just a little bit? Oh but i love you all! xx

    • Martine

      July 10, 2014 at 7:00 pm

      WOW! The Fifth Element was the most awesome style movie! I would be proud to be compared to someone from that movie, although there were no robots in it. Just gorgeous people in gorgeous clothing, especially Milla Janovich. This girl would look not out of place there. Which is a huge positive.

    From the mulberry tights to the white hair… this is a beautiful, unusual collection of colours!
    Not sure about the shoes.

    But does anyone know who designed the coat or where it’s from?
    That is exactly the type of coat i would love to have get me through the winter!

    Who needs trousers in the middle of winter when your lips and clutch and tights match? She is as striking as she is confident. Such limited color used to such great effect.

    I can’t help but note all the bare hands in these mid-winter photos. I’m cold just thinking about it, and long gloves would add such polish.

    I love the coat, the tights, and absolutely envy her because there’s not way I can ever pull-off red lipstick!

    the *cheekbones*

    and I love her tweed coat, the tights and the shoes.

    so elegant!

    Rosa: Barcelona Sweden’s second biggest city? Are you mad? Sweden’s second biggest city is 500 000 people, and I cannot believe that there are 500 000 swedes living in barca! Ok, Sweden is a small country, but it’s not THAT small… Love the photos btw!

    Great cape and cowl. And a wonderful use of buttons to button the cape into a coat.

    She has the legs to go without the pants, so good for her!

    mDesiree13 at 6:04 and Rosa at 9:01–your comments made my day. Rosa, I am grateful for the chuckles you provided. No wonder I am counting the days till I return to BCN.

    The face, hair, and make-up in this shot are lovely, and Sart’s exercise in making neutrals look so interesting is certainly worth our attention.

    I love how her hair is an integral part of the whole outfit.

    I don’t think tights are pants either, but that saying applies when one is wearing something that OUGHT to be worn with pants because she looks trashy. this is quite the opposite.

    OMG! She reminds me of Robyn (singer) who coincidentally is from Sweden too! I love the concept of the oversized jacket with the tights. Despite what everyone else says about the tights, I think it works! :)

    killer. i’d wear this in a flash.

  44. Rosa

    Oh Malin you see its a joke about barna being the second biggest city, it was told to me by swedish person who said “oh dont you know barna is the 2nd biggest city in sweden?…and London is the first!” he was kidding about how lots of swedish people move there, honstly i was couting numbers :-)

    I love the charcoal( well, BLK/WHT coat but it reads charcoal overall)color with this wine color combination. This just gave me an idea of pairing these two colors in my outfit. I'd do different proportion for myself though; go leaner/elongated. As I'm much shorter in height than this girl. And this cropped coat/jacket look would make me look like one of the off-season elves from Santa's North Pole so, longer and leaner with dress & shoe matching the tights is my plan.

    Thanks, another outfit dilemma solved!

  47. Sara Lua

    This girl is perfect in every way, from the white blond boldly slicked hair to the plum lipstick reminiscent of her legs and the burnt red leather pocketbook.

    Perfect proportions too.

    Love the punch of color, even though it’s not a bright punch. It really makes the whole look special. Although I do have to agree with the ones saying that tights are not pants.

    I love the shape of the coat.

    Masterful that her lips are the exact same shade of plum as her tights.

    And was she with the guy with painted nails below?

    Because his nails are exactly the same shade too…!!!

    This girl is popular, she was photographed in this exact outfit but also wearing a hat on “”

    As was the girl in front of the skating rink with the cropped ginger hair.

    But both examples show what incredible pictures you take, Sart. The backgrounds, the composition – the comparison really shows how you capture the heart and soul of your subjects.

    Sart is the best xx

    I would have liked to see a heavier shoe with this, I mean we get this really interesting look with the tights and her legs are INSANE! I nice chunky shoe would have brought the eye down more.
