I don’t understand why you value fit and proportion so highly for men and show us just the opposite for women? Don’t women look better in clothes that are well fit and proportioned to flatter? Too often the woman is overshadowed by her attire.
I bought a Marni coat as much for the coat as for that most excellent belt you see in this picture. I will be using it on all my jackets, sweaters dresses and shirts this winter. It is so simple, yet it makes everything look more modern and chic.
ah, the proportions. they’re actually wonderful. so. if i had to deconstruct this outfit, piece by piece, i’d say it’s all quite brilliant. aside from these particular glasses with this particular outfit. they appear slightly humorous, and thank goodness for humor, but they seem to stick out, just as an exclamation point sticks out where there’s no need for one.
Horrible,horrible, horrible! Just too much clunky stuff. I’m with anonymous who said you value fit in men’s clothes but not women’s, and that this woman is overshadowed by her attire. And really, what do giant glasses do for anyone except emphasize the fact that they can’t see well?
Love Marni and as a woman of a certain age (ie, no more childbearing) you will find out all you younger ones out there, that you often need to cover up some of the lumps and bumps that come with age. Marni does it artfully and stylishly. I wear it and i can appreciate the beauty of this look. But i want to know- does anyone know who makes the shoes she is wearing? I love the contrast of the lighter colored shoes with the rest of the outfit.
i just commented with so much confusion about the girl in black and white two posts down. but this is fab! i’m surprised so many people liked that one, and the comments seem so divided about this one. the sheer and opaque, the colors and textures and shapes! it is nice for women of all shapes to have fashionable options, as others have stated, but i don’t feel that was the purpose of this blouse. it’s supposed to be loose and drapy. i can’t totally figure out exactly what it’s doing, actually. she’s a show stopper. i wish we could have more angles of this outfit.
I was going to dismiss this as sloppy, but upon more thoughtful consideration it really does work. I love the way that tunic is belted! And I covet those shoes. I feel like I learned something from this.
