This girl is so naturally pretty. This combination with the shoes is great. I am not sure how I feel about Aladdin pants in general, sometimes they tend to look a bit “trendy” and exaggerated. But these are not overly dramatic, remain classy and still make a statement.
i started by looking for concrete things to dislike in this outfit because i would want to wear it. i would think “nah, only a really tall person could wear this and look good,” yet this girl is not tall (at least, not beanpole tall) and she looks great. now i’m trying to imagine my head instead of hers atop this ensemble…i’m working hard… you know, i feel like if i wore this i would look like i was going to the gym. i know i would. why does she look so good in this, yet i would look terrible? (it’s not just her hair– i have good hair, similar to hers actually, even though i’m just a little white girl, very curly.)
I know prints are big for spring, but I prefer clothes like this–simple blocks of plain colors and interesting shapes, like the harem pants. they really work in an otherwise basic outfit! nice hair, too.
i love this outfit. it’s a great example of real personal style–so her-specific. i really would love to see the crest on the cardi, though because i think it adds another layer of depth to the ensemble. it breaks up the monotony of the solid color blocks less obviously than a printed piece or jewelery could. it makes me happy to know it’s there.
This looks like something I would totally wear except for the girl status. And I don’t think the shoes or hair would look good on me either. Oh well still love the whole thrown togetherness of it all. . . sock. . .
i like the individual pieces of this look but overall, she looks, to me, a bit squashed down.
i’m not exactly sure what it is but i think it’s the length of the cardigan that’s the culprit. maybe if it was a few inches above her waist she wouldn’t look as shrunk down. her shoes, which are particularly unique, might also have something to do with it. paired with those what i can only assume as velvet-y sweatpants (not an insult), it creates a somewhat unflattering v-shape going all the way down, making her already small feet seem even smaller. then again, it might be the angle that this photo was taken; she might look better if her pose was not so static.
i do, however, like the color choices that she made, especially the gold accessories which contrast nicely with her skin, and the hidden brooch with the color of the cardigan.
p.s. sart– i e-mailed you twice and never got a reply. i’m not saying i’m disappointed…just a bit disenchanted.
I’m from London and have never been to New York, so all I know of it is the culturally iconic Sex and the City, Woody Allen’s Manhattan, Warhol’s The Factory… and 80s Haring and Basquiat. This girl (or rather this constructed image) is a conflation of the above. To me at least.
