What a pose! Strikes me as French girl chic here – not much makeup but looking fab. And I like the shorts – denim coloured fabric but much lighterweight (down with denim hot pants – so stupid for summer – are you listening Kate Moss???)
1st : simple. perfect. hair beautiful. low or no makeup makes it not look country club. way to go.
2nd: nice to see the gold gladiators. dress too tight but love the black in jacket w/ navy dress and pink scarf. gold shoes instead of black or blue or brown make it. gold in aviators pulls it all together.
i love love LOVE the morning shots you get of people. this one, and another recent one of a girl with the yellow scarf & red jacket, is so clean and fresh yet so seductive. like you just rolled out of bed with them.
if i hadn’t been inspired by an earlier photo to chop my hair, this one would’ve done it. had you not written W23rd, i would’ve been convinced this photo was taken in a beach town.. miami, mexico or even france.
Just discovering your blog. Used to work in the fashion industry in NYC, Milan, Paris & London myself. Read your bio and totally concur with all that you’re saying. I had a place in the city for years but am not living “in the country” of Connecticut. Love being able to check out your blog and get a metropolitan “hit”! Thanks!
I am not really sensing inspiration — the look is basic, mannequin-friendly, and easy to achieve. The crisp colours the designer choose for the rugby/tee saves it from being a numbingly bland ensemble — it looks like a harbinger to spring which seems lacking or at the very least hidden this year… The young woman is blindingly sultry, sweet and sexy all at once — it is more about the woman than the clothes.
To be honest I don’t quite understand everyones comments (so please feel free to explain!)
From what has been said, the woman below is bland, simple and generic. I think/thought she looks fab, and comfortable – wearing an outfit that can change from street to office.. (just slip off the scarf, and add a pair of heels as one person suggested). YET – this girl seems to be wearing something that I would pull on to go the SUPERMARKET! A big/baggy rugby jumper,shorts, no make-up and (as far as I can tell) no make-up. Hardly anything mind-blowing!
Many comments seem to be true, that it is the girl that makes the outfit, not the clothes.
Or am I missing the point? I’d be interested in hearing anyones opinion.
this is really nice. the proportions on the shirt are great, i love that the sleeves end just before the wrist. it is not cut too tight, which makes shorts are the perfect match for this top.
and the stipes! just lovely. she is quite beautiful and im glad to see it appears that she is barely wearing makeup? also her hair is just great, maybe a bit more wispy on the bangs or so, but she has really nailed this look. it IS possible to dress in masculine clothing while maintaining a strictly feminine appeal!
This outfit strikes me as one that wouldn’t flatter many people, but on this girl it really works. The whimsically wide stripes and playful androgyny work in an adorable companionship with her beautiful face and boyish haircut.
What a beautiful photo! What makes this phto is the pose and that “just got out of bed after a good shag look”. And the clothes then only add to compliment that initial conception. If she was wearing something more serious/structured,it wouldn’t work. Perfect.
This is a look that, passing down the street, I wouldn’t take a second look at. But thanks for making us take this second look, because it’s amazing. At first glance I thought she was wearing her boyfriend’s shirt, but oh my god it is the most perfect shirt ever! The buttons, the oversized placket, the perfectly lined-up stripes! And the chambray shorts! I am drooling.
i can’t decide if i’m more in love with the woman or the framing. the backlighting is glorious. the pose. the tussled hair. the color of the whole shot — her skin, the blurred trees, the yellow/navy/white — the clothes are uninspiring to me. but the photo is true magic. thanks sart!
