The individual pieces are lovely….but it paints a picture of being in too much of a hurry, almost lazy. I could easily see her clothing choice being much more for lounging @ bed, beach, pool, sofa, hammock or picnic. It feels underdressed for NYFW. Lets add another hashtag to the plethora of hashtags….. #sleepwalkingNYFW. Get this girl a energy drink!
Other than that….heart the movement in the shot and the monochromatic color scheme….perfect shot, Scott…. =)
LOvely. Now this is effortless cool pictured. And those legs! I absolutely love it when an outfit looks like someone just put it all together with no thought and yet it looks amazing anyhow. If anyone knows what this dress is, tell me. I have been looking for a real shirt dress like thatâ€¦.and those legs!
An interesting question! How about: Style happens when your clothes, haircut, etc. correspond with and flatter your physical features? Of course, style is “more than the sum of its parts”, but this might be an important aspect.
I think I understand what you mean … But since young women with perfect bodies can look good in anything, it would mean that anything they wear – really ANYTHING -, no matter what hair do or make-up, would be “stylish”.
Take this girl on the picture: how could she not look good? What would be unflattering on her? I mean, have you looked at these shoes?
You know when you say about someone: “she’d look good in a burlap sack?” Well, this image could illustrate the saying. That is what I meant.
Is style only about having a nice looking body and face? I think it is, more and more. Not a bad thing per se, but it just struck me recently.
Oh, I see – I took your question literally and didn’t notice the “” framing the word style! I agree – to a certain extent. Another term that is constantly being bandied about is “confidence”. In spite of its inflationary use, I think it is an important aspect: If somebody young and beautiful does not also seem (!) confident and happy, she is not regarded as “stylish”. This pertains specifically to women. So if a young woman is beautiful and “confident” (note the quotes!), is she automatically stylish? I don’t think so. Part of “confidence” is daring to wear weird and nerdy stuff; if the girl in the picture were wearing a dull, conservative outfit, I don’t think she would be regarded as being stylish regardless. Of course, the young and beautiful rule the (fashion) world, but I still think somebody not quite so young and beautiful can also be stylish by wearing the right stuff – and, yes, exuding tons of confidence – or “confidence” ;)
I really enjoy this photo as well as the outfit. The outfit displays a simple and casual look any girl would wear on a regular day out in New York. The garment the young women is wearing is oversized and almost could act as a cardigan and be paired with pants, however this woman took it upon herself to just wear the dress. I love it. The dress is comfortable and is appropriate for maybe an early morning brunch. Brunch is one of my favorite ways to spend the beginning of the day. This relates to our class because the dress display the components of fashion. The color is shades of gray and lacks in silhouette. The lines, form, and texture are all evident in that they are only seen in the one garment. The texture is soft and maybe cotton. Also, this relates to the class because this dress is by Isabel Marant and she is one of the designers we have learned about through the IBEP’s.
