I love the little bag/pocket on the waistcoat, adds a real antique feel. The socks, whilst adding a modern touch, aren’t needed in my opinion. Perhaps some off white/cream tights would help create a lengthening column of neutrals instead? The colours of the gloves, coat and bag work perfectly xxx
Amazing. Maybe the socks are a bit too much… she should choose between socks, gloves or red bag. That said, the yellow coat is among the best I have ever seen, the layers perfectly fit her body shape and the small purse is the perfect detail.
Colours lovely and harmonious with the quirkinessof the chocolate and toffee legs. This escapes being boring with the mix of the ochre coat, celadon green mittens and cherry bag. Very successful altogether, although the grey/stone woman of last week is still my favourite…….
Quirky and idiosyncratic but carefully thought out according to her own style and it works. She looks like a fun person. Beautiful coat and the sweater or vest is a nice touch, too. Not sure about the style of the gloves, but the colors they and the bag provide are good.
The subject obviously knows her trends–looks like she ticked them off: fingerless gloves, bracelet length sleeves, patterned tights, peep-toe shoes over the patterned tights, blahblahblah–but don’t all those “hot” items overwhelm her personal style? She’s made a great choice in colors, and I admire her use of angles and asymettry, but I’d like to see her subtract at least one trend and add something that truly speaks to who she is. Perhaps that’s what she’s doing with the sweet cross-body bag? The background colors in this photo are beautiful and appropriate.
She’s lovely. I don’t think the ensemble could work as well without the hosiery. This may seem counter-intuitive, but they unify the look somehow. This shot made me wish I could enlarge more of the details–maybe in your next technological improvement, Sart? Thanks for this beautiful shot.
Beautiful coat! And the cacophony of colored accessories that would be costume-y on a lesser woman is very elegantly pulled off. As another poster pointed out, confidence is everything in such an outfit. Also, does the small pouch at her waist remind anyone else of a sporran (kilt pouch)?
this is so gorgeous…it truly is a lesson for me: i sometimes feel as if color and pattern can’t be done in a sophisticated manner. but she looks classy and age appropriate; a tricky feat when wearing striped tights!
i think this is probably the coolest outfit I have EVER seen. The coat is beyond fabulous. This is incredibly quirky but looks completely appropriate for a woman who is some way from her teenage years….
What a playful, clever delight! To accessorize this brown/ochre palette with red and green makes the entire look totally fresh. The collarless coat is magnificent and I for one adore the striped stockings.
ya know how there’s the scruffy homeless punks? and in new orleans, those punks have a scruffy circus twist on that style? this reminds me of the new orleans circus kids gone classy. (there’s probably a more concise way to express my POV. i’m just not good at that…) I LOVE THIS!
Radiant portrait: Your eye for color is fantastic Sir. Your subject is beautiful with exquisite style that’s playful and slick (with a fleeting resemblance in her face to Tori Amos) , but what is I love most about this portrait is the surreal background, in grey/blue–almost like it’s underwater, serving as the perfect backdrop for this radiant, golden woman to shine.
This really is delicious. And love it with the loose toffee-colored hair au naturel. It’s true that the shoes are a tiny bit jarring (strap AND stripes), but who cares? The point is that this woman is having fun, loves her things, and feels wonderful! Come on people–let’s get out there and STRUT OUR STUFF.
I love your blog man, its awsome. Im from Brazil and not too many people know you here, but since the Veja magazine publish a story about you, more and more brazilians are loving this blog. Keep up the amazing work. I have a fashion blog too, but it is in the beggining, check it out if you can.
I so love that coat. The construction and color are amazing. It just looks really soft, but not fuzzy. But those tights aren’t really doing anything to the whole look.
She has a lot going on already with the different shades of cream/brown, the green fingerless gloves, and the red bag. And there are all the different textures. I think solid color tights would have best.
I love the jacket and the mixture of the mustard with the ketchup. Plus the shirt and skirt look so beautiful on her. However, the fingerless gloves remind me of smokers, which is never pleasant, and the stockings make her look way too much like a witch. Nude colored hos would have been perfect.
I saw a chic woman in Carcassonne this weekend who caught my eye for her wild blonde hair and very cool black coat with a high collar. Then I noticed she was wearing black and grey striped tights. It worked.
love this look layers and colours but somehow managing to look carefree, helps that she is slim and beautiful. this is a good example of true style it is unique, ie not pulled from a catwalk or editorial, quirky but overwhelmingly chic and elegant.
It’s so funny, I bought a pair of striped knee-highs that look just like hers! I thought they were so adorable. I got them home and THEN wondered how I would wear them, and if I was too old (31) to. She seems to be around my age, and now I know I can wear them and look great like she does!
Everything about her is FANTASTIC: the way her face and her hair go with her style, very naturally, then the colors, the shapes, the proportions, the great fun and personal fearless way of creating her own image… This is one of my Sartorialist’s favourite in months!
