    i think the whole look would have been much more dramatic had her jeans and shoes been black as well but the oversized proportions are nice

    socks or not, what a babe! I like her jeans. Does anyone have any suggestions for a great pair of jeans?

    That looks like the “Does it get any more perfect” girl from the fall.

    I think her jeans could be the Cheap Monday tight style unwashed. I have them, look just like that.

    I wish I could see her bag. Love the shoes with the jeans.

    Oh I love her navy shoes. They leave a delicious little V of skin when they part from her dark jeans.

    She pulls of the volume of the coat beautifully. Love the shoes too!

    i love a big voluminous coat do i, especially if its nicely fitted at the shoulder and has shiny brass buttons. this girl is so pretty! i love those velvet booties!
    one thing though– a practical consideration, not an aesthetic one– if it’s cold enough to be wearing that coat, surely it’s not warm enough to venture out of doors sans socks?

    Black jeans and shoes would have made it more dramatic?

    Try expected and boring!

    There are far too many safe fashion opinions on this blog.

    Guess what: You can wear a belt and shoes that don’t match and white after Labor Day is ok, too.

    These are some good ass shoes!

    love the jacket! a simple but well-tailored coat is the best thing you can own right now.
    the dark blue shoes add a nice touch too :)

    An extreme proportion, which I wish wasn’t quite so extreme. I admire the bravery, though.

    That coat is large and in charge, and I love, love love her shoes.

    Her ankle boots are too cute– great color.

    It’s frigid in Manhattan, how is she wearing that? That coat looks flimsy, and no hat? She looks like she stood around all day waiting to be photographed.

    I wouldnt be surprised if she was wearing J Brand Jeans. They look like the 10″Skinnies I’ve got my eye on. J Brand is my vote for great fitting jeans.

    I like the big coat. the little glimpse of ankle reminds me of the victorian era, and she’s getting away with something scandalous.

    Looks good with skinny jeans, but I think that the jacket overwhelms her a little bit too much.

    Forget the cool coat and interesting shoes – I think it’s her sweet smile that makes this picture worth looking at!

    Looks like her Mum’s coat. Too bulky for those little arms. But love those shoes.

    why do girls with such cute figures wear such oversized clothing?! everything here is great but the coat. she could fit like 10 sweaters under there.

    A great pair of jeans, you ask? I can never go wrong with Acne Jeans. They are absolutely the best jeans I’ve ever worn. So comfortable. I may be biased, being half Swedish, but so be it.

    Love this – didn’t get it until I enlarged the picture. It’s the ultramarine shoes that make it isn’t it?

    I saw this on and loved it – so great to be able to see it in more detail. The shoes make the outift in my opinion and the fact it is not all black – loving that coat!!

    I love her shoes…

    This page always inspires me to get something old I’ve been ignoring but is really great out of my closet, to play around with colors, mix things around, be more daring, finally start having FUN with my clothes and style!

    That totally sounds like an ad or something but I mean it!!! Thank you sartorialist!!!

    absolutely cute but I would prefer a pair of jeans with sharper colour

    I absolutely love this! And I want her shoes! They really did a good job of flattering the jeans.

    Now close your eyes and imagine the very smae coat, but more tailored and fitted. Magic!

    Can’t stand the trend going on now with these elf ankle booties. Aside from that, the massive coat with skinny jeans.

    This is so bizarre. I saw this girl this morning in the deli near my office in the flatiron district! I thought I was going insane. Same coat, jeans, shoes (no socks again). In person she’s tiny! (I’m 5’8″ and I towered over her wearing no heels!) I guess the people on Sartorialist really get around..

    You have shot this girl before Sart. SHe was standing on a cobblestone ground with an orangebrick building in the background with the gratest smile on her face looking into the sun. She was wearing a red and navy collared button smock and black heels with a black handbag.

    I could recognise that smile anywhere!

    love the velevet blue booties.

    I know this is days old, but I really think she looks like Charlotte Gainsbourg.

    She looks rich and sophisticated, I’ll give her that. But this look is stereotypically Manhattan, and it’s predictable. I wish it was more inspiring like the cast of Sx And The City wardrobe by Patricia Field.

    That is the most original, amazing outfit I have ever seen. Anyone that can even think up a bad thing to say about it must be a complete moron. Its four years past this photo, and I want to copy it.
