    She’s so pert and adorable – love her bob, calm expression, mixture of colors (pink shirt, light blue purse and light blue on her cool shoes). The draped scarf is gorgeous. Just noticed the brown sleeves. But the pants are atrocious.

    Well, well, well and sigh…I look at these pix for style and/or fashion inspiration. I’m not finding a whole lot in Austrailia. Perhaps it’s me and I’m unable to tune into the current zeitgeist that is Astrailia. The people look healthy and fit like Southern Californians, I like that…

    What a great shot. That scarf works so well with her shoes! Love her ethereal loose sexy clothes and bag in the parklike grounds. Great length and color of her hair. She actually looks a bit like Ingrid Bergman or Isabella Rossellini.

    Love every element and love the shoes, but love them separately from the outfit…for me they somehow don’t quite jive. The scarf is amazing. The shot itself is quite stunning.

    Overall, style down under is definitely cool. You should come ‘up above’ to Canada someday.

    All these photos of Sydney reveal a remoteness that I can’t quite pin point. Everyone seems a hair out of touch…maybe that is la moda there?!

    They are stylish, but seem to lack edge or sex appeal….maybe I have just been in NYC too long…

    Love love love this. When visiting Vienna with one of my more stylish friends recently, I was surprised when she ranted about the popularity of drop-crotch pants, equating the look to a diaper. I insisted to her that they can be incredible sleek, stylish, and feminine, you just need to be able to work them. I wish I had just had this picture in my pocket :). Also a stunning display of personal style: you can tell from her eyes that this outfit is a perfect painting of who this woman is and how she felt that day.

    Pretty colors. The shoes and bag just seem out of place-a small vintage clutch and simple greek sandals would have been just perfect.

  38. Hannah

    May 8, 2009 at 4:26 pm

    I love it! The colors are so improbably, but they look amazing together! And the loose proportions are lovely. I have a scarf about half that big and it is the most functional piece of clothing ever.

    I think she has a bit of a kooky art/drama teacher vibe going on, but the shoes kinda sorta balance that out a bit. I love her hair, though.

    The drape of the shirt against the billowing pants is definitely nice and says summer. Not sure about the jacket and scarf combo which might be fine in fall. Shoes are great but not with this outfit.

    Someone anon said “They are stylish, but seem to lack edge or sex appeal….maybe I have just been in NYC too long…”

    Well, to a large degree that is very true – primarily as Sydney fashion is based around comfort. I know the saying “beauty is pain”, but I think a lot of Aussies have moved beyond that – it is the evolution of fashion with comfort. The edge comes from the natural sexiness that exudes from an sunny and healthy climate, not from channeling ones inner pole-dancer ;-) And sadly our season is 6 months behind Europe and the US – it requires originality to look original in the Sth Hemisphere!

    I love the loose flowing lines of the clothes. It emphasizes the ease that she is standing with and the comfort that she is dressed for. The heels add an unexpected sharpness to the outfit along with the short cropped hair that stop the outfit from turning into the otherwise bohemian look. Very nice!

    I would never wear harem pants myself but that’s only because I could never carry off the look like she does. The juxtaposition of her hands casually in her pocket and the boho scarf paired with these heel are awesome – she totally works this outfit. And the expression on her face, great! I love to see people take the time to play around with fashion and not be so safe. Thanks Scott!

    I think it takes real guts to wear an outfit like this. The combination of colours and fabrics are unusual and beautiful.
    I love this site because it forces people to be more accepting of global style. I say lets appreciate people who dare to wear, and not condemn them as some previous comments have because we wouldn’t wear it ourselves. Thankyou Sartorialist for posting a beautiful Aussie girl.

    You just don’t see fashion like this in California, where designer flip flops reign supreme! :)

    Love the top half – very mysterious and fairytale-esque. However the hareem pants and shoes i'm not too sure about… but interesting non-the-less; she certainly has a very unique style!

    One of those outfits I just look at and instantly love. I would never think of putting something together like this. She has a real Scandanavian look about her outfit and the bottle-jade scarf is just really exquisitely wow. Fashion inspiration and totally adorable style!

    I love the color of the scarf! It is so unusual. Cool chunky heels. Winter scarves can be really fun when you work on it!

    The loveliest fashion scarf color – teal. I have a teal pashmina from Yours Elegantly that I bought online last week. Awesome so I guess teal is a color I love and can't resist. The overall look is so adorable and stylish.
