    Like the shoes, like the skirt, but don’t like the combination of everything else with the skirt and shoes.

    Unusual but I would prefer the look sans cardi.

    I like the drapey aspect of what looks like a cream-colored shawl with buttons. I wonder how easy this would be knit. Anyone have any ideas?

    Do you ever feel like people are just trying to outdo each other with mixing? Sometimes I see someone and think they have a concept being their mixing, but other times, I think they randomly put clothes on to achieve a “street style” look. This look would be the latter for me.

    What is it about mixing fancy and low key. I love the t-shirt with that skirt. It really looks great!

    What a fabulous look, the perfect mix of feminine and masculine, quirky and classic. Love.

    I love the idea of the Soundgarden t-shirt and the shoes, but instead of a skirt, it would’ve been nice just a pair of leggings or something more curvy.

    Agree with Mark above. The Soundgarden shirt rules!

    Pointu how we say in French, I guess I would translate this as “sharp”…Not in a knife sense but more in the “not for the ordinary” sense. Guess it reminds me of “les Prairies de Paris” small French brand with attitude!

    I love this – it is a very unexpected mix – yet it works so well and those shoes are abs fabulous – i think it is the cohesion of the repeated black and white that pulls it together – whatever it is – i love it x

    September 22, 2011 at 1:27 pm

    Love the prints, love how she puts them together…
    Not so much the cardigan….
    LOVE her shoes!!!
    AND the brilliant photo….

    really very digging a larger presence of the low-tech, zine fiend look. do i call it neo-post punk or 5thwave? dunno but i had always wanted a pair of brothel creepers. hers are nice.

    anything but classic.

    This is why I love your site. I always just pair my band-tees with jeans. Now I have the idea to pair one with a skirt and my black/white oxford flats. New outfit out of my closet with items I already own that I never would have thought to put together. Love it!

    Being that it’s NYC, a Ramones, Blondie or CBGB t-shirt fits the venue.

    I can always count on The Sartorialist – always fresh, modern, beautiful photos containing images of very well-dressed people. She’s so gorgeous, I love her printed skirt on her paired with the cool shoes.

    Gorgeous cardi. Love the combination of the turqoise print, band tee and creepers.

  57. helen

    September 22, 2011 at 4:37 pm

    of course its her confidence that makes this outfit. feel comfortable in the way you choose to express yourself through the clothing you wear–something i’ve learned from the sartorialist. ;)

    I like the pattern mix. And thats an intriguing skirt. Kind of a tulip shape, i suppose. very nice. The creepers too.

    Beautiful and badass. Fashion week was so boring; glad there’s one interesting person in nyc left. @marcel, wtf? people in ny don’t just listen to ny music. thanks for showing us you know some bands, though (eye roll).
    perfect mash-up. in love.

    Hate to say it but I just don’t get this look. In my opinion, someone woke up and said, I am going to put absolutely anything together. Having that sense of freedom is great but I’m not digging this look at all.

    love how well it fits and looks!

    I’m dying to know how this skirt works! It looks like fisherman pants at the waist … inquiring minds want to know.

    I love how she’s put everything together…is it me or do New Yorkers have a better grasp of fashion than us Brits in terms of taking risks? Man I’d feel so at home in NY…love the fashion!

    amazing skirt – pretty sure i almost bought that one. should’ve bought it. damn

  71. CeQuoia

    September 23, 2011 at 11:55 am

    Is the skirt a strapless dress worn as a skirt? Not that there is anything wrong with that––I was simply observing the darts on the front of the skirt and wondering….

  72. Refusal

    September 23, 2011 at 12:08 pm

    Love it. For me, this is true style. A look like this takes more creativity and confidence than the studied stilettos + something short, tight or black styles that are so widely praised.

  73. Juanita

    September 23, 2011 at 1:05 pm

    She makes this look great altogether. Individually I don’t like any of the clothes so just goes to show it’s how you wear it!

    There is nothing stylish about a pilled cardigan. I miss the days when street style photographers would actually shoot elegant people with real personal style. Now it’s all about young skinny girls who put together crazy costumes and mix multiple trends. Or it’s about you and Garance sitting in the front row to shoot the runway. I’ve stopped reading your blog on a regular basis and these are the reasons why.

    really amazed at some of the comments that don’t even try to understand the references here and seemed threatened by a band t-shirt, a vintage looking cardigan and skirt. the music history references are totally coherent and, not to take away, it’s not like this is something revolutionary. really appreciate the sense of humor and pop culture references here.

    This is why I love your blog so much … there’s every combo of style for everyone. Tasteful, eccentric, out there, classic – everything.

    I think this outfit is hideous. Especially the sweater. I again, I appreciate it, without actually liking it. I think this photo is a typical example of if we saw it on the street, we’d wonder, “what is she thinking?” vs. seeing on The Sartorialist, and everybody going ga-ga for it. If this outfit was on anyone but a very pretty and slim girl, it would definitely be derided. I’d love to see the t-shirt, skirt, and shoes worn differently, and the sweater tossed out.

    Thanks as always for the provocative photos, Scott.

    Didn’t Elaine (from Seinfeld) have a similar pair of shoes?

  83. Michele

    September 26, 2011 at 12:06 pm

    Sorry, she is beautiful but this looks a mess to me. This isn’t edgy, it’s just chaos with a shabby sweater. Nothing goes with anything else. Even vaguely. Maybe she is having a bad day but it’s a mess.

  84. W

    September 26, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    those who don’t “get it” are the ones who would call this a mess/shabby. love the kurt cobain sweater many seem to not appreciate. apt with the soundgarden shirt.

    To the nay-Sayers:
    Creepers + a Soundgarden tee + bright skirt + houndstooth = true love. <3
    This isn't a woman trying to be "edgy" or purvey a particular image. This ensemble is a collection of pieces that she loves, clearly. I love how her unique personality is expressed here. Originality and individuality are something we should celebrate and find joy in, even as "professionals" and "adults". Bravo.
