I would describe the first combination of clothing as cool; the acrylic and metallic silver colors from the scarf and leggings offer an interesting balance that is not overdone or mismatching. I think the look would not be complete if the scarf were not there.
Pic 2 suitable short blond hair to her square alomoste heart faceform. All her colores jumper,dress and hair in the color tone, very nice. Just like Mia Farrow haircut in RosemaryÂ´s baby, Vidal Sassoon was the hairdresser that made him famous world wide.
The top photo reminds me. I would love to see more photographs of polo coats. Do you know what I am talking about here? The thick, double-breasted camel hair coats with peak lapels, belted waist, and cuffs. Beautiful. It’s the right season for polo coats. You should see more of them now, especially in Manhattan. I’m sure if you stood outside Grand Central Terminal at rush hour, you would catch some top specimens. Commuter chic.
I hate the first look. Especially the bag she is holding. For me its not style nor fashion or even good looking what she is wearing. But her sister looks stunning in the sumer dress, combined with heels and a grey cardigan. I want to credit ehr short hair too. I love women with short hair but not many can pull it off. She CAN!
So many things to praise here: there are trends here, and yet overall she doesn’t look trendy. I never thought I’d like silver leggings, but these look great. The black, blue, silver combo is inspired, and the proportions here are spot on. A ++
Thank you, Sart. I enjoy your blog everyday, but I also have a sister with whom I bond over clothes (among other things), so this is a particularly dear post to me.
i like both looks..except for the scarf and purse in the first picture..agree with silas..the scarf throws the flow of the outfit..I also really like how the backgrounds seem to fit what each sister is wearing.
Still loving summer sister’s floaty dress…still iffy on the cardi…but loving the dress.
Love winter sister’s choice of blue top with her beautiful colouring, red lips, and blonde hair…
Overall, I have to say your lighting in both shots is, as usual, extraordinary. The winter shot just shouts winter in dark blues and grays. The summer shot is like a beautiful yellow memory of 3 or 4 months ago…sigh…
I completely agree with anonymous 10:06 AM: “I hate the first look. Especially the bag she is holding. For me its not style nor fashion or even good looking what she is wearing.” My thoughts exactly. Her sister looks great, but mostly because she is gorgeous and not really because of her clothes.
FYI: the girl in the “summer look” is wearing all APC…the dress is from the ‘Madras’ collection from this summer…the camel wedge sandals as well. One of my favorite labels but not an obvious choice for most people…takes a bit of getting used to but, once you go APC you don’t go back!
I have dark brunette hair, and the colour I look best in is eggplant purple. If I had a darker skin tone, I would go with lavender purple. Every once in a while I dye my hair darker so that it looks black; then my best colour is crimson. Not “red” or “burgundy,” but brooding crimson.
Sart,I have to ask: how do you always manage to find the perfect background for your subjects? Is it just serendipity? In that top shot, it’s just amazing how the geometric elements of the backdrop and her ensemble play off each other. Fantastic!
Love the space-girl leggings, blue shirt, black boots combination on the winter sister. What a fun style she has. I also love the subtle color combination of the summer sister. I think these outfits work for them because they both have great legs.
It may be blasphemy to say it but they both remind me of Agyness Deyn. But better, of course. I like the contrast between the first, sunny and light and immaculate, and the second darker and more textured.
