On The Street…Texturist, New York

I love the variety of texture, pattern, material and associations.

The demure (almost granny-ish) print dress paired with stylized motorcycle boots, crocheted tights, bouncy ball scarf and protective parka.

    so cool

    That scarf really makes the outfit. From far away, it looks like it’s part of the dress but that’s what makes it look perfect there.

    and she shops at the MoMa design store. clearly a woman with a discerning eye all around. :)

    are those leg warmers poking out of her boots? that extra layer is so subtle yet so hot. this is my favorite look that’s been on here in a while.

    gorgeous!!! although she’s using understated colors (navy, black, dark green) the outfit still pops because of the bold accessories and as you said, amazing textures.

    I think the contrasting of soft accents like the tights with the leather and utilitarian zippers is a great combo here.

    I wish I could figure out how to pull off the male equivalent of this look right. It seems it’s all about balance without leaning too feminine or too masculine.

    I was out shopping yesterday and was amazed to see that over the past ten years, general NY fashion seems to have taken leaps forward. Thanks to sources of inspiration like this blog no doubt.

    I like this look…didn’t a previous post have the same/a similar scarf in white? It’s good.

    Everything is textural, as you say, but for the first time I may be balking at the black — just too much black for me. I know it’s coming into fashion again and I’m all for it. But. This look begs more dimension which only some color variation could give. Fabulous scarf though. And she’s good-looking.

    I should add: she’s got all of the proportions of her look right — just perfect. (Maybe I will scratch the too-much-black complaint!)

    This mix of textures and layers is genius. Any winterization of dresses is genius!

    nice, but too much black, i think the scarf and one other thing should be brown. very cute.

    I saw you, Sartorialist! When I was coming out of Fanelli’s this afternoon. I would have said hi, but I’m shy.

    It is a great time for fashion.

    Can we just this once hang here for a few years so we have time to enjoy it?

    We work too much to see it all.

    Wow, what a beautiful outfit. The scarf is amazing, it’s from H&M last winter. I bought it but returned it. Something I regret seeing this picture.

    The dress is from H&M, too. This fall. And it’s actually a dark, navy blue (not black) with a tiny, red print. I’d never thought to wear the blue dress with black accessories, for fear of the dreaded clash, but now I’m tempted…

    I LOVE the parka, just what I have been looking for. Anyone know where it is from? Is it fur?

    If Ny is six months ahead of the rest of the world, especially here where it is mid summer…I’m going to make me a big scarf with pom-poms on it.
    I seriously love her look, the just so colours and textures her style and of course the great boots.
