This is the perfect illustration for wear ONE item that pops, and make everything else be the mat and the frame. The trench is something that dominates the outfit, yet it does not dominate her as she has a v strong look, starting with the hair and the lack of makeup, she exudes confidence. I am a bit split on the white sneakers, but I guess they work if you are a student and are walking those Paris streets all day. Quite frankly, other than heels, I dont know what else she might wear for her lifestyle if she is, indeed, a student. Jorge from W Palm Beach
Love her hair! really suits her beautiful face. I wish more people with long hair would style it into up-dos; i know it’s a lot of effort but it looks so great – it makes your hair into unique face framing accessory. Think of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly – would she been so charmingly seductive with her hair loose down her back?
I think the shoes make the outfit. They are appropriate for what she is (a student) and, along with her hair and expression, give her a very definite visual/cultural reference (Amelie). Heels or boots would be pretentious and impractical.
Maybe the colors don’t look like they did in person, but I think the coat is too darned bright. If it were just a little less neon it would compliment her rather than overpower. Parisians usually choose good colors for themselves and this is close but for me a miss. Also, white shoes of any kind with dark tights/hose make me shudder. She’s still awfully cute.
At first I thought “ugh, I can’t believe it – white sneakers, in Paris?”. Then I noticed they were Converse AllStar, so all is well (and sylish)! She is quite adorable, and I love her hair! The orange coat is fabulous!
Love it! I found this beautiful pumpkin-colored cashmere walking coat in a vintage shop years back. Had the lining re-sewn and buttons reattached several times, then my dog chewed the collar (RIP). While no replacement can match it, a similarly colored orange coat helps make Midwestern winters more bearable. I almost look forward to them, actually!
