On the Street….Boucle Jacket, NYC

This boucle jacket was such a smart pick for yesterdays terrible weather. Since boucle is usually very light and soft to the touch it is a great option for transitional weather, and when you want a little surface texture in a piece without the stiffness or weight of a tweed.

    Really? I'm not understanding the appeal of this at all. I mean, I dig bouclé too but overall I find this look dowdy. I do think the jacket has possibility I just don't like what she's done with it. Her shirt troubles me immensely.

    Would anyone know where the shoes and the jacket is from? I just got inspired!

    Hmm. It is a rainy day outfit and the colors are nice, but otherwise, a bit humdrum.

    this is my favorite look for fall. simple, to the point, and menswear inspired!

    I like the heather on heather, but somethings feels missing…

    the boucle jacket seems great from the warm winter in HK.

    Pretty sure the shoes are STEVEN by Steve Madden, as I am wearing the exact pair right now!

    this look is nearly perfect to me. i don't really like the shirt as well – i think a collared shirt would have gone better than her selection.

    nonetheless, this is my favorite look from your recent posts, and i can tell this lady has great style.

    such a pretty face. from her the tips of her hair to her shoes -i wonder if her demeanor is so graceful all the time. oh, if only more girls knew how to dress as perfectly, there would be so much more to admire, and thankfully, there'd be less to criticize.

    The colors all work together, even though none repeats. Well, maybe that's not true — the shoes match her hair.

    Really nice and understated.

    She is Beautiful and looks just perfect. Finally a break from the usual female look, which is always great, but this is something really special. She looks intellectual, but not stiff. Very ideal. Why don't more girls go for a smarter look?

    Ronja couldn't have said it better…I love when a lady/girl can wear mean shoes with such style.

    that shirt does not look good.. she should have worn a v-neck or something.. i dont know she just looks really uncomfortable.. plus the colors don't really match.. i dont know how there are comments like this on here 'if only more girls knew how to dress as perfectly' .. she isnt dressed that perfect at all

    I like her vibe. she looks very laid-back and okay with just looking comfortable.

    The understatement here is absolutely perfect. I bet she writes poetry and creates the essence between the lines. The shoes are so nostalgic and the ankles the prettiest I have ever seen.

    love her shoes…..

    The shoes are Steven by Steve Madden. I, too, have them. They are the best! If ordering online, buy a size up, however. The Steve Madden shoes made in Spain run a bit smaller.
    I wore them with short white socks to break them in and now they are comfortable for walking and wearing all day.
    I really like them with flouncy feminine dresses. But my 9 year old calls them my "ugly shoes" (she prefers sparkly heels!).

    That's the thing about style – we all will disagree, and that's just fine. It's entirely subjective. Quality of a garment, however, is not at all subjective. It looks like everything she's wearing is of good quality and probably feels really nice when worn, too. I like how easy it all looks. I would maybe add a light-weight patterned scarf and this would be perfect to run out of the house feeling good.

    so cute. there is no pretentiousness to the cuts of the garments at all, just neat and interesting and comfortable with gorgeous tan

    the most beautiful shoes, worn to perfection without socks but with ankle!

    I like this look – not high fashion but chic run-around daywear (and don't we all need some of that??). I might add a long necklace or a scarf for a bit of colour but then perhaps that would mar the simplicity…

    love love love this look and color combo! This is an ensemble that I would love to "make into a room" :)

    Understated, I like that, but I wish the neckline of the top was a little lower. The shoes are great.

    Bought my girlfriend a pair of light brown brogues on the strength of this photo and she absolutely loves them, looks great too

    Thanks for the style inspiration Sartorialist (and of course the rather stylish lady in the picture)
