    That's why black never goes out of favor, especially with the fashion crowd. You could pack these outfits in an overnight bag, and with enough underwear you could get outfits for perhaps a week! I wish they were happier-looking, but they are tremendously stylish and that's enough! Jorge from WPB

    Great shot. The long black ballet skirt with footless tights, flats, & black leather jacket really works because she's tall, slim, pretty, and has great attitude. They both look like they don't take themselves, or fashion, too seriously, and are having fun with it, which to me is the essence of good style.

    I've noticed (& have been posting since the spring) that on London streets, black is the new black and it's carried thru the summer.

    I don't care when you shot it: I predict that black (along with grey) will be a summer classic. Not that it will ever knock white out completely, but it's a close contender.

    For the rainy grey summer we've had, I'm enjoying the black layers–and white "pops" make a welcome change from all the b/w patterns of last year. Interesting pieces, infinitely re-combined–they could trade parts for next week. But, yes, smile–you look plenty fierce already.

    When you are wearing an almost all black outfit, 999 out of 1000 times it will look amazing. I dare the people to wear more colors. It's very hard to combine different colours. Imagine these girls wearing three completely different colours, they would look ugly. It's not always about the cloths, it's actually always about mixing colours.

    what i'd like to know is when this photo was taken? it surely wasn't on Aug 13th with the boiling 1000 degrees we've had out here this week; no one in their right mind would ever wear this in August in nyc, would they? So just curious to know.
    They look mad cool though. Now if only I weren't sweating just by looking at them… ;)

    I am not so sure this photo was taken recently & perhaps Sartorialist, Scott can fill us in. The weather has been incredibly hot here. Also, to the right side is a person that is blurred but also dressed in black & he/she appears to have some sort of coat on as well. As for the look itself – they're kids with great imagination. Black is black & always complimentary to anyone.

    Dear Sart:

    I owe you another post. It seems that every time you've got an NYC shot, I criticize it for the fantastical, impractical high heels some one is inevitably wearing in that urban hiking environment.

    Now, here, finally you show shoes in NYC that make total sense. Thanks!

    So many posters know what the person on the right is wearing and love them. Toms. I'll look them up.

    If you saw a couple of girls walking down the road dressed like this.. you've half admire them for their obviously good taste and half wonder if you could ever pull this look off yourself.
    Who needs accessories when you've got that stare/pout combo.
    Black clearly is timeless..

    Yes, absolutely they look great, but are they real?

    After all, the temperatures have been in the 70s and 80s, and the humidity has been of the kind you can swim in. Yet both these ladies are in black with long sleeves. And whether that lucious jacket is plastic or leather, its owner has got to be basting in her own – um – liquids.

    Show me this as on the street fashion at the end of September, maybe. But now, in the midst of August?

    I'm a bit dubious.

    Sheesh people– lighten up, they're just kids. I think they look fine. Nothing exceptional, but nothing too contrived either, they're obviously art school students and honoring the classic all-black dress code of such. I think it's fun. And I agree with those who say the young lady is a DEAD RINGER for a young Parker Posey. The young man reminds me of a young Ric Ocasek (of The Cars).

    The portrait was obviously snapped some time ago– I'm sure they would not be wearing this in the current heat weave.
