    Great shot, Scott!

    Love the lighting, pose, shadow on wall, color graduation (top to bottom: light to dark). And the year 1984… so many fond memories of my youth!

    You know I am always fascinating by the retro gesture in a contempory context. All in the physic, style of this young beauty reminds 70′s taste, the best of what has been done in term of teenage style. Why is it still working now in 2013? It is still modern. I am wondering which positive links my mind does with this period or others (i.e: 50′s).

      Not really. Natural wait garments have been the norm from the beginning of time. Its only in the late 1990′s that people decided to switch to a lower waist, and its stuck around like a bad smell. The idea started with girls simply wearing oversized flared jeans low on their hips, like in the show “Blossom” then the fashion industry got interested in it and we have Alexander McQueen getting credit for inventing low waist, which is nonsense. Of course as soon as McQueen did that, hip kids who like to look somewhat original wanted no part of it, and the waist has slowly crept back to were it has been in the 20′s, 30′s, 40′s, 50′s 60′s and yes 70′s and 80′s. Its merely a return to a logical silhouette. As usual, with certain higher end designers lagging somewhat behind. And thats the story. Weare just ending a trend started in the 90′s late because the fashion industry likes it.

        Sorry but “hip huggers” pre-date the 1990′s. I think they made their debut in the mid 1960′s and held quite a hold on American style for some- probably into the mid to late 1970″s. I agree that there’s a cycle of trendsetters inspiring designers by rebelling against current trends/dictates, but this only serves to undermine your argument that a particular clothing style has “been the norm since the beginning of time.”

          May 17, 2013 at 12:33 am

          How does the fact that hip hugging surfaced briefly in the 60′s undermine that the natural waist has been the norm..basically from the begging of time, exactly? Its a minor point that I simply didn’t bother with as it has no bearing of my statement( its not an argument). Natural waist jeans were still the norm during the time that hip huggers showed in the 60′s, and they never made it large. But even if they had we still have normal waists in the 1920, 1930, 1940, 1950, 1960, 1970, 1980. Briefly a fad of low waists in the 90′s. A particular style of clothing has not ever been the norm. But most rational things, like sleeves where the arms are, and waists where the waist is ..are the norm.

    Scott, in light of what you wrote in your post of May 7th: “It reminds me that sometimes what seems ordinary today could seem extraordinary tomorrow.” AND this shot is extraordinary today as well. AND I couldn’t help but notice how much this young woman’s face resembles the one in the aforementioned post. (However, the attitude is quite different.) Love this!

    The pairing of cropped top with high-waisted jeans here is perfect–the narrow jeans highlight the summery swinginess of the top, the loose, not-too-short top compliments her lean shape, and the height of the jeans’ waist both creates a long, clean line and allows for a playful look while minimizing inadvertent belly-flashes. (And Sevan is absolutely right about the Botticelli effect!)

    Have youth discovered the joys of cheap clothing? By that I mean, jeans and a tee without any pricey ads on them or logos.

    • ladyofletters

      May 9, 2013 at 6:54 pm

      Doesn’t look like it: the Tee has Marc Jacobs emblazoned all over it… apart from that, it’s a gorgeous look.

    Love high waisted jeans and crop top. My absolute favorite go to outfit. Flattering, natural, uncomplicated, sexy, sporty and most excellent in every single way.
    Sooo completely different from the usual ugly low waisted jeans, which try to hang on to your butt and hips for dear life and end up drooping and having to be pulled up. I tossed out every pair of low and most mid rise anything I had a few years back, and am so happy I did!!!!!! High rise wide legged, skinny legged, bootcut, straight legged….anything is good. If low rise pants disappeared from the Earth I would be happier for it. As for people who take perfectly good natural rise pants and wear them low down; Pull up your dang slacks, you look like you pooped.

    I am probably blind but I don’t find this picture nice at all. The quality of the picture is nice but the model with her tight jeans and undone hair looks unoriginal, comun, unattractive to me. But it is just my personal opinion.

    This is a bit east of 8th Avenue, no? I recognize the building. The afternoon sunlight that hits it is magnificent, as this photo demonstrates.
