    Safari-chic, very now! She makes it look effortless.

      Jeez, am I the only one who dislikes the VERY MUCH overused adverb “chic”? It’s like it has no meaning anymore, everything is “(…)-chic”.

        What I am tired of it is the use of the word “effortless” on any sentence when it comes to comment about one’s look. It’s kind of annoying! Everything now is effortless. Really? What I see nowadays is people trying too hard to seem as if their look were effortless, but in fact they are putting a lot of effort and thought into every single outfit they are going to wear everyday.

          Agreed. People spend half a day trying to make their hair look like they just got out of bed. I prefer to look like I put some effort into it. “Faux insouciance” and the practitioners thereof irritate me to no end.

          Really folks- do we need to spend time picking apart the words that someone else chooses to use? If the word “chic” and “effortless” are a person’s words of choice, then so be it. If these words offend you so, then don’t use them. These are just words used to describe clothes/style – nothing life-altering or earth shattering here. Besides, chic has been used since the 1800′s – it will eventually get old. Let’s get over it.

          @Elisa – I encourage you to use chic and effortless as many times as you please.

          • Alice

            August 17, 2012 at 3:09 pm

            Sure she can use these words as many times as she wants to. She has the right say whatever she wants, just as I have the right to dislike the the use of these words.
            People use chic as if anything now is chic. The same goes to effortless. When in fact the look is anything but chic or effortless. That’s all.

            August 18, 2012 at 11:04 am

            Alice, I think the point is that you could have made your own comment if you feel the outfit is not chic and forced (or not effortless). Seems a shame to criticize what someone else wrote unnecessarily. I mean, “chic” and “effortless” are subjective.

          • jaj

            August 20, 2012 at 1:04 pm

            @Ta: I agree with you..

          • Elisa

            August 24, 2012 at 5:42 pm

            Thank you dear! People who dislike these words probably read too many blogs and forget their actual meaning. Words aren’t just sounds used as catch-phrases my fashion magazines/blogs.

    There’s something so relaxing, yet elegant about safari style clothing that fits summer very well. The animal print shoes, of course, are a great touch. I’ve been wearing animal print accents quite a bit lately, so I’m happy not to be alone in that ;)

    It’s amazing how well the sparkly clutch goes with the more muted, utilitarian palette. And her hair…fantastic!

    I like the hint of ocelet print in the strappy sandals. A wee bit goes a long way as any good fashionista knows.

    Love the look… but disagree with most of fellow commenters on the shoe choice… I would have probably liked them paired with another outfit, but don’t like them at all here… But then I guess it’s only me….. :-)

    In theory, there is nothing wrong with this outfit
    for me, there is no “WOW!” factor.
    Perhaps if the shirt dress was a vivid color with some pop. I don’t know what August is like in Milan, but for me, on the east coast of the U.S., this color looks heavy and hot. The camo (looking) shoes do nothing for me. I’d much prefer them in either a solid color.

    The (only) thing that stands out for me are her posture/pose and the way she’s tied her belt.

    It is very difficult for a thin woman (or tall, thin man) with good posture to go wrong. This same outfit would not work on the ‘average’ woman in America.

  33. Luce

    August 16, 2012 at 10:39 am

    She’s truly beautiful and I think her beauty comes from within. All the confidence just leaps out her pores!

  34. Leanne

    August 16, 2012 at 10:42 am

    What a great pic. I’m also loving the out of focus folks in the background – EVERYONE looks hip and stylish (I’d really love to catch a better look at the girl in the multicolor dress, to our model’s right) – what a fab place Milan must be! (I was there about 20 years ago, and it was great then . . .)

    I love the safari style ever since YSL launched it in the seventies with the “saharienne” jacket and it became an overnight success. Above all, I love those earth tones with a touch of animal print.
    This young woman is perfection.

    Fantastic outfit. Much better than those spasmodic buttoned up outfits from yesterday or maybe the day before. I love especially the shoes and the purse: perfect combination.

    Shirt’s colour is too… dark? Heavy? but maybe she had not anything better in her wardrobe. if so, she managed to do sth interesting with the dominating outfit. bright belt is a very good idea. and the shoes… my favourite leopard pattern. I wish I had the same.

    I like her pose, and her whole appearance, but I feel like the shoes are much to tiny for that look. A chunkier or flat shoe would have made it for me, the heels kind of make it feel like a (well executed) “morning after” look. I was completely mesmerized by the shot at first, and really disappointed when i scrolled down to the shoes…

    I don’t find anything really interesting with this. Neither the outfit, nor the photo itself. The woman doesn’t evoke anything new with her personality, and the outfit is actually really boring.

    Beautiful shoes! I am really tired of seeing those stripper shoes that seem to have been the rage for the last….forever it seems, with the super high heel and the annoyingly high platforms, especially on women with thin legs (think Kelly Ripa). It makes their shoes look larger than their heads. This is in much better taste.

    Elegantemente despojada, parece aproveitar o ambiente, mostrando um semblante calmo e feliz. Adorei a ideia de colocar a leveza do sapato e do cinto para diminuir o “peso” da roupa. O jeito como amarrou o cinto tambĂ©m Ă© bem legal. Ah, e pela blusa vestido ser marrom, contrastou tambĂ©m com a cor da pele, que Ă© bem clara. Enfim, está muito bonita a foto. :)
    Beijoos Gabii! :)

    I think it is too bare, especially on top. She has pulled the collar as far apart as possible. It also feels like she picked the shirt up off the floor and put it on. I guess that would be considered “effortless” but to me, not in a good way.
