      Wonderful photo! Love the fur!

        The best thing is the volume on those pants after all the painted on pants you see its so completely new. But the fur is the great finishing touch.

    And yet she seems like she just effortlessly left the house, and through on some slipper and socks to match. I like it.

      That’s so me… all put together, and still sporting the comfortable slippers

    Dressed to provoke. The socks and sandals are very deliberate and I’m on to her!!!! hahahaha

          Nobody likes the ugly choice of sandals but not many dare to say :)

            Agree! Just looks like she really worked hard to look like she didn’t!

    Hat, nice… Scarf and coat, nice. Pants,ok, nice. Shoes…what?!?!??! In my hamble opinion, tragic. I see that combination (socks-sandals) by tourists travelling aroun in Greece and it’s not nice.

    Come on guys, let’s buy her some real shoes…

  15. IVKaBCN

    April 19, 2013 at 9:48 am

    So pleasant to look at, but she might consider two tone brogues rather than the sandal + sock disaster at her feet!

    Egads! Those faux fur (??) cuffs are awesome. What an easy make that would be on the sewing machine. And they wouldn’t cost a lot either. They would be such a great conversation piece. Everyone and their bro would want to ‘pet’ them while you’re waiting for the bus, train, get into the theater.

    Honestly, it looks like she pulled on her coat and grabbed her camera because she was running late. Effortless? Obviously. Fashionable? Meh.

    such an interesting style!

    Pajamas revisited.
    Worn with birks AND a great coat and hat. Why not ?
    Still not for me with my petite frame I’d be lost in this outfit.

    I mean, I get it- we’re at a point when chains, studs and leather are overdone and acceptable to wear; counterculture fashion has become largely mainstream. What direction is left for a young lady in the city to go (in terms of fashion) who is inclined to rebel? I’m from the Midwest and I see this look a lot, although worn without deliberation. Her saving graces are that she’s young, attractive, has a nice hat, and she’s holding an expensive camera. Without these, she could fit in at Walmart.

      Astute comment! But isn’t that what personal (and well put together) style is all about – embracing your age (experience) and pulling it all together with something (even one thing) than sends a message you did this on purpose…?

    Well, if you trip on one of those metal racks and drop your camera, don’t say I didn’t warn you about putting the strap around your neck….probably didn’t want to crush that scarf.

    That’s a nice coat.

    April 19, 2013 at 11:16 am

    She looks really cool on this photo but I’m sure if I met her on the street I would think that she run away from the hospital in her pajamas a sandals with socks on:) The coat is awesome though

    Interesting. When I wore plaid pajama pants on me 12 years ago I was just mocked. Now celebrating all the same here. Interesting.
    And I still think it’s neat. Sometimes. :)

    it’s a good picture… of a hobo chick (not chic) that just stole a camera, a coat, and a hat.

  35. Bigblue

    April 19, 2013 at 1:30 pm

    oh come on. has all sense left the planet? she gets away with an absolutely shocking mismatched ensemble because she’s cute? it’s like an over long blog post with one good point, you end up acquiesing due to that one point and hating the rest.

    lady – fantastic, gorgeous
    hat, coat, camera, scarf – acceptable
    birks, socks, baggy boyfriend pjs – total zeroes.

    don’t even try to spin this overall look, it’s crap.

  36. Iwona

    April 19, 2013 at 1:36 pm

    Great shot. She just had no time for shoes . I am wondering what she was photografing ???

    Well, I love the top 3/4 of her outfit. The clown pants and socks/Birks combo made me cringe!

      Exactly my thoughts! Way too sloppy.

  39. Sara

    April 19, 2013 at 2:26 pm

    This look works because of the gigantic fur cuffs. I love birks and they’re okay here but a more fashionable but still unpredictable shoe would have worked better.

    The coat and hat are grand but the clown pants and shoes are just part of modern irony that I bored to tears with.

    April 20, 2013 at 6:55 am

    OH boy! That’s what I call glamour, style, chic, powerful !
    I love the hat like always, hats are a fashion for itself, and the pants are so “man in the 40s”, love the look and her pose.

    Well…she is clearly not an accountant from Des Moines. Sometimes these pics seems so insular and exclusive …like pages of the cool kids in high school year books…but I guess that is part of the reason I come to this site.

    Hi there,

    I love this outfit. It has a very magical feeling that I can’t describe. :)

    a beautiful style!

    Come on folks. If this photo were not taken by The Sartorialist, and if she were not holding an expensive camera, there wouldn’t be so much fawning going on here about an “amazing outfit.”

    The coat is cut poorly, the pants look awful and are dragging on the ground and the socks & ‘stocks she’s slipped on make it look like she just snuck out to grab some smokes at the convenience store.

    She’s otherwise probably attractive and is wearing a nice hat.

    In my humble, independent opinion.

  61. anonymous

    April 21, 2013 at 1:47 pm

    Interesting from a fashion point of view, because none of the cliches are here. Birkenstocks? Socks with sandals? And loud big pants. Yet it works. I guess the day of skinny pants is behind us. Very ’80′s feel to it for me, especially the bottoms.

      I happen to love this look because it is free-spirited. It has no brand names on it, (except Birks) and it nods more towards individuality than anything else around. Fearless.

    I love everything about this women and her outfit except the “what will soon be” dirty socks and Birks. She is so 180 in her dressing for the moment and I love this so very much, she could have done much better with the shoes. I love the hat and the fur!

    What I love about this photo is that she is the “real Parisienne”. People think all you see there are thin, rich women in designer clothing. I lived there 3 years and this is a girl you would see at a cafe, she would ask “are you american?” and then you would be out for the night at a bar or restaurant with her and her friends. The artsy Parisiens I met and still know are so artsy, funky and just enjoy life. Just love the mood of this photo.

    A bit over-the-top, love the hat, though.
