the man on the left looks fun. as for the woman’s outfit, it’s certainly creative, but i don’t like that everything is so poofy, creating a great big poofy middle. i think if i were to try to steal some of her look, i would do it with a slim jacket and pants, with those fantastic sweater sleeves poking out.
I love how they color coordinate. Her textures are great although I find her volume play unflattering. Still, they are both doing something very interesting and appreciable, especially with the colors and fabrics. I just couldn’t ever put myself into an outfit that obscured my frame, but I’m a slim silhoutte person. Nor could I advocate that a man wear a sweater that robe like, but I like that he’s done it.
WOW! What a pair! The Leather man ‘stache with an Aran sweater coat! Her citron/ gray/ bottle green color scheme, harem pants and leggings…Usually my motto is not more than one trend per outfit but I am willing to retire that faced with all this funky chic!
I don’t think she’s a big girl, but that outfit makes her look HUGE. Honestly I can’t stand this whole “volume play” look or whatever you want to call it… oversized tent-like tops with tight jeans or leggins on the bottom. It’s too faddish to survive.
I really like the coat on the girl. I know that when I’ve tried that hip-length it helps to have some volume on the bottom to help show off the coat’s shape, or else my body looks awkward, or the look too trendy for my taste. These coats are hard to pass by because I so love the details- the buttons, cropped sleeves, buckles and pleats (I’d guess because they’re not too much on a smaller piece, in terms of styling and cost to make?).
I love the sleeve on her grey sweater. Full, but not puffy. Perfect. Everything below her waste, not so much. I think she would look really nice if she wore grey tights instead of leggings, so there would be no interruption line on her leg.
To me, they exist at a level above the rest of us sartorial mortals. The daring and panache they both show in combining elements that somehow seem impossible together, yet work so harmoniously, is breathtaking. I bow to them both.
