I adore the resemblence between these two outfits; they all evoke such an effortless and casual euophoria, yet indidually bespoke. I love minor yet impacting inserts of quite a used, worn and disheveled piece like the run-down converses in the first pic, it looks lived in- it has had many experiances, and possibly many storys it has been involved in….Beautiful photos.
I like the pattern of the blue dress but in a way it’s too macrobiotic for my taste. As if she grows her own potatoes. And when sexy is too sexual it isn’t sexy anymore but silly.
The white dress is very stylish and elegant, great actually.
Greetings from Amsterdam.
I am Swedish and I love my Converse. :)
I bought my first in late 80:ies in the states. High red ones. They have always been a part of my feet. High red ones. :)If I feel to dressy a pair of converse will ” dress down”. Cooler. More laid back. Like the girls above. Sexy, cool and full of self conscious.
This is the biggest look for young people right now all over Europe! Wherever I went, young girls are pairing long skirts, mini skirts, shorts, jeans, leggings -you name it- with a pair of Converse. Signs of the grunge wave that is slowly taking over. Rock n’ roll.
Its nice to see how people wear heels less and less these days. And of people don’t even wear them in the summer, i suppose we will see even less of them in winter. I have been noticing that on the street. I am not sure if anyone will wear heels soon.
The girls look so elegant in those dresses despite the Converse shoes. Elegance is timeless and always looks good, whereas the flavour of the month accessory is often only about making a youthful personal statement.
I’m all for converse and dresses, whatever makes you feel beautiful and ready to take on the day. But could some of these ladies please wash thier converse first… nasty dirty shoes with lovely spring dresses…WTF.
I love the white dress flowing in the breeze. But.. common.. it’s not chic wearing converse with a dress, AND they’re not wearing them (in Stockholm) because it’s “effortless”. To wear converse with practically EVERYTHING, dress, jeans and shorts, is, what I believe, only a lack of inspiration and interest in fashion overall. it’s sad and it’s too safe.
That looks amazingly sexy. BUt the Converse is what makes it work. I can’t think of any other shoes they could have paired with those dresses without either looking like they are going to prom, or else they are 50′s housewives. With Converse the outfit is youthful and urban.
Ha! I was googling up and down to find an online-proof for what I experienced in Stockholm a week ago: when you walk the streets of Stockholm you will experience the same look about 200 times a day: light-blue short denims, a (transparent/oversized) shirt/blouse AND, surprise-surprise white chucks!! Everyone’s wearing white converse! :D I really wonder where that trend comes from… if any celeb wore this style. But, probably it’s just the natural Swedish talent for cool style. ;-)
