On The Street…. So Nice To See, New York

It is so nice to see a woman wearing jeans that don’t show her butt crack (they sit on her hips perfectly). It is also great that she is wearing a belt and she has her shirt tucked in. See, casual can look refined and still be sexy.

Of course she was Italian-she spoke almost no English. At first she thought I wanted her to take a photo of me – she reached for my camera but the look on my face must have made it pretty clear that she had it wrong, Never touch a man’s Canon -wait, that didn’t sound right.

    Never use the word never…

    I feel personally this is the most adorable fit of jeans on a woman. I am sick of the butt cracks too.

    She looks refined and classy yet casual. A very fine young northern Italian woman.

    Appalause all around. I, too, am so tired of butt crack and bellies. She looks so polished and pulled together. Lovely.

    I am tired of butt cracks and thongs hanging out. I’m tired of super low rise hip hugger and roles of fat hanging over. This Italian lady has got it together.

    Absolutely beautiful, and Sart’s comments are exactly right.

    Argos, can you explain me why you are so sure that woman is a NORTHERN italian?

    That’s so cute she assumed you wanted her to take a picture of you. Makes me love her. I’m reminded of people on those makeover shows who refuse to wear outfits like this because they think it makes them look old. Next time somebody whines about that, they should show them this photo. She looks totally sexy.

    Italians are the best dressed. Italian women are the best, period. Que bella!

    So nice to see a beautiful woman, who is well turned out. Just shows you don’t have to look cheap to look desirable.

    She looks great. Fine and clean. She could be from everywhere in Italy.

    Saluti da Milano.

    Well dressed and a pleasure to look at. More women should take lessons from this lady.

    Perfection. I would give her the launch codes just for the asking.

    Personally, I would need a tripod and an oxygen mask in order to take this photograph.

    Perfect fit, perfect waist. More and more I feel like saying “if I wanted to see your butt crack I’d watch your porn video”. If anything the leg is a little too crisply pressed, but overall this is very, very nice. It doesn’t hurt the outfit that the girl in it is gorgeous, either!

    The weight of the shirt makes this look for me. Quite smart!

    very classic…and everything fits so perfectly on her! too bad little girls try to look like scantily clad pop stars instead of this woman

    I want to know where to get those jeans. More importantly, I want to get my body into a shape so I can look that good in jeans! Where’s my Pilates DVD? lol

    I wish the women of this city could add the class and refinement of the Milanese woman , and realize that showing too much skin – or anything else- is just not that attractive

    She looks great and elegant! I think it’s quite interesting that you have all this great and beautiful women in NYC. Although when I visited NYC I didn’t see these women. I only saw women with jeans, a tanktop or a collegesweat and those horrible flipflops that are a bit high. I think it’s really shows that that lady is italian, women in Europe have a different kind of sense of style. I’m sorry, and i’m also sorry about my bad english. Swedish Fashionista

    Probably one of the top three most beautiful women ever on your site. She looks classy, polished but also unbeliveably sexy. And she doesn’t look like a Lindsay Lohan wannabe like so many of the other women walking around NYC and on this site – wearing leggings, white dresses and skin baring clothes made for teenagers.
    More women like this please.

    I enjoy this blog everyday, but I have never felt compelled to comment before today. This woman is perfection…the casualness of her hair with the sunglasses perched just right,the fit of the jeans with the belt- I wish this was the norm rather than the exception. Thank you for finding her and taking her photo!

    Yes, she is both beautiful and classy.
    Too many designers and too many women have lost sight of what looks good in their drive to get the lowest cut. Most often, the skin tight super low riders alter the shape of the woman’s bum to a less than optimal look! The most beautiful and sexy jean is most often not the lowest cut.

    She looks wonderful. Very sexy without the exposed body parts that are getting VERY old. Love the belt and the light white cotton shirt just nails it.
