Again, I have to say that I think most of the women seen “on the street” in this blog do not have much interesting style going on, but rather they just happen to be physically attractive. Skin, hair, lips – sure, these things are important in overall attractiveness. But this girl’s ensemble does absolutely nothing for me. Any New York girl can put on a trench, skinny jeans tucked into boots and a black shirt. The clothing and style – the things this blog is all about – just isn’t interesting.
I agree that the jacket is cool and the girl is cute, but I don’t get this trend of tucking jeans into boots…
Most people can’t pull it off and end up forcing their legs to look unreasonably short. This style should be left to the freakish 6-foot plus models, as well as the gent you photographed months ago near the old fish market in his custom lace-ups.
It’s less about her clothes, which are nice. It’s not just her looks, which are, for lack of a better word, hot. It’s also the way she carries herself in her clothes, a sort of inimitably sexy insouciance. Were I to see her on the street, I’d have been reduced to babbling.
Of course, the great pic helps a lot. Scott, great work–the backlighting adds a lot.
I don't think the point is whether or not other people in New York are wearing this (I live in the podunk Midwest at people wear this), but rather how she wears it. Because the point is that SHE is wearing it, and not the other way around. Anyone can put on clothes, few people truly make those clothes their own.
