On the Street……Blue Texture, Florence

I love the audacity of mixing tweed and sequins.  Sequins can be such a great texture to work into a day look.


May I be so bold as to say that I think this look, with the right tweaks and right guy, would be equally cool on a man?!

    For a brief moment, I thought it was a man.

    Very cool either way.

      Same here! And I actually like the mix, but I wouldn’t wear those pants.

    I thought it was a man! It’s a great combination of textures either way. Love the addition of the smooth, soft shoes.

    It looks better when you thinks it is a man :)

    Oh! Wonderful coat – I wore a similar one toady with a Drakes paisley scarf – it made me love January.

    YES but it would be worn by a man with a certain confidence!

    Nice find!! It’s quite an interesting mix and I have to admit.. At first I even thought this was a man.

    Beautiful mix of texture! Love it.

    fantastic denim pieces!

    I would never have thought mixing it up like this would actually look good – but it does. I think it would suit a man – but he has to have the right look.

  10. Millie Cotton

    January 8, 2013 at 8:46 pm

    agreed – although I think it would look even more insatiable on the right man; I love a bold sartorial male choice.

    I thought it was a guy too! Something about the shoes and the slouchy fit of the pants.

    This is the best mix, photo yet. # 1

    This ensemble is amazing!! Sequins and tweed are fab!!!!! Unexpected – classy and club works together.

    January 8, 2013 at 9:46 pm

    Too much blue. The coat is nice though. And I thought that was already a man.

  19. yes!

    I too thought this was a man…
    On the correct male figure this would work quite amazingly

    Beautiful! Love the texture, amazing.

    Why not?…Love the contrast!




    January 8, 2013 at 10:28 pm

    I love the fabric of the coat


  26. TerranceJ

    January 8, 2013 at 11:07 pm

    I guess ‘feelin’ blue’ never looked so good! The sequins and tweed match is, for this example, slightly garish. For this to work well on a guy, the sequins should be toned down just a touch. Swap the wedge boots for a (preferably) navy double strap monk, rinse and repeat.

    It’s a very cool look. But maybe uncomfortable to sit in? JCrew matched your suggestion with a 2 in 1! http://www.jcrew.com/womens_category/skirts/pencil/PRDOVR~30803/30803.jsp

    nice post–thanks

    I love this… And yes it would be fabulous on a man too. I’m really loving your take on menswear lately Scott, thank you for your open mind!

    Like many others I thought it was a man too, either way it seems to work great!

    The different pattern combination is genious. And the blue shades are a perfect amalgamation. Smitten with this…

    Amazing mix! If you hadn’t say anything, I couldn’t have told if it was a man or woman!

    I actually thought it’s a boy on the pic…seems more boyish even there are sequins and stuff.Good job!

    I love contrasting textures or ideas in an outfit. I think tweed and sequins could be the new cashmere and leather.
    And yes, I would love to see a man in this outfit, not enough men embrace sparkle.

    Definitely not flame-retardant, that’s for sure! Maybe a new twist on a tuxedo or evening wear, but not terribly practical to wear during the day–a real stretch.

  46. Denisa

    That sequin pants looks great. Very nice.

    wow. Thats such a change. Looks really lovely. The way you’ve paired the shoes and all together and all in blues, looks superb.

    Yes for sequins in a day look but not with that shoes and not on a man to me.


  54. Eva

    January 9, 2013 at 6:44 am

    Love this detail sot and the two materials combined but I think that when one of my male friends arrives in sequins I would laugh. Maybe also because most of them are constructors :D But a small detail like a sequin bowtie would be pretty cool though…

    Brilliant! The sequined pants, especially in that great colour, are both subtle and amazing and the juxtaposition with the tweed is stunning. Love it. Pinching the idea if I can find a similar pair of pants.

    All blue.
    Winner outfit.

  62. Lydia

    I love tweed, not so much sequins…but this looks good because I think the colours were kept neutral.

    Fabulous texture and herringbone pattern. I´ll be looking for an overcoat soon :)

  65. Noemi

    January 9, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    I think you’re right, it could be cool on a man, even if i don’t like the shoes. I would say way cooler on the right man. When it comes to male fashion, it’s often about the right man, in my opinion.

  66. Nic from Thriving Wives

    I also thought it could’ve been a man. Love the texture mixing!

    I thought she was a man… It isn’t uncommon to see men in Japan dressed like this.

    • Martine

      January 10, 2013 at 9:53 am

      Seeing how this isn’t taken in Japan, and its a picture of a woman, I don’t understand how that relates?

    An extremely balls-ey man would look amazing in this texture mix, and an average man could store it away until next New Years!

    At first, I thought it was a man. And I thought he looked really cool!!
