    hmm. she looks impeccable from the waist up, and that jacket is spectacular. but i don’t like the sprouse leggings at all, especially not paired with those red pumps.

    This outfit is the answer for my question of the wearability for sprouse’s collabration. The strong shoulders on the jacket balanced out the playfulness of the leggings. Very clever.

    She looks great. I have the poor man’s version of these leggings, bought in 2007 at Desigual in Amsterdam, which I wear for Pilates classes. If I had her legs, I might be tempted to wear them like this, but I don’t, so they stay hidden……..!! They do look very nice under knee-high flat Freelance boots, as well, with a mens’lab-style coat over all. Not at all as chic or as glamorous as this, though…..

    she's smart enough to play down the shoes as the legs and bag provide enough pepper, and she has an air of two bridges, nyc about her that i like.

    I like the outfit- she wears it with her own mix of textures, drapes, and colors. She matches things that most of us would not imagine to go well together. The real question is whould she wear the leggings if they were not Sprouse for LV? Jorge from WPB

    Vuitton or not, I am not a fan of the whole leggings as pants phenomenon.

    Love the layering she did for her top and the shiny burgundy pumps though.

    The bag, I’m not so sure about. Do you blow it out with a barrel-brush when you want more volume? Or flat-iron it for a sleeker look? Anyways, I have a strong aversion towards hairy accessories prone to shedding and could also double as a duster.

    An outfit is ephemeral unless you carefully put together a combination and wear it over and over. So here, for instance, who cares if the shoes are these or maybe another choice? The fleeting nature of today’s outfit is part of the charm. Love the leggings and the fur bag.

    I’ve had mixed feelings about those leggings but I really love how she wore them

    Was she in one of your earlier shots, in a royal blue short skirt/dress and a black opentoe… It’s a shot from her left side and looking up?

    I'm loving the S. sprouse leggings. I want them, but i would wear with platforms or funkier shoes.
    She is wearing them. Confidence is key!

    wow! where is this woman going in this amazing bold outfit? love the tights, the bag is impeccable, the top, the jacket. the shoes are good ,too. it is as if she has an amazing wardrobe, and picked whatever suit her fancy for the day, and the mismatch inevitably worked so well. this is one of the best shots i have seen on sartorialist.

    Contrary to what a good number of people are saying here about her tights ruining things, I think that this woman has got some undeniable, bold, and spontaneous spunk.

    I don't know if I would wear patent pumps in that color with that outfit but what a look! This is such a strong look and it looks as if it didn't take her much thought. She's JUST that cool. : )

    P.S. Those Sprouse leggings are absolutely incredible…

    Some things just shouldn't work, but they do anyway. She looks great. It helps to be young and beautiful.

    Gorgeous! She's mixing so many style elements that come together so well. Also, she looks slightly like Jessiba Biel.
