      I don’t know what they are, but she looks very good. What a great outfit. One of my favorites. They just look like wedges to me, nothing particular. They just compliment her look very well. Those vintage jeans are the best. They just don’t make quality jeans today, no matter the price point.

    This outfit is perfect on so many levels. It’s laid back without being normcore, it’s feminine without being too girly and it has elements of men’s wear for a tough and durable appeal. She has a great eye. That waistline exemplifies her consideration of comfort, fashion forward, and the beauty of a tomboy (whatever that means today). is there another word to describe tomboy?

    Great shot

        What are these “closed” jeans? Can someone please tell me? To me they look a lot like vintage Girbaud jeans. Were closed jeans also made in the 80′s? How can everyone tell that they are NOT Girbaud?

      • Maria

        October 14, 2015 at 3:57 am

        I don’t think there are any vintage Closed jeans. Its a new company, and the only kind of jeans they make are stretchy skinny, and much lower rise then this. Those are Girbaud. They hit high on her waist, and the legs are not tight.

        • Joannesez

          October 14, 2015 at 10:26 am

          Closed was founded in France in 1975 under the brand name Ca. In 1978 it was renamed Closed. It was also in 1978 that the Pedal Pusher jean with its characteristic x-pockets was invented. It became wildly popular throughout Europe, especially during the 1980s. As of today, more than 30 million Pedal Pusher jeans have been sold. In the 1990s it was sold to an investor in Hamburg, Germany. The company is still extremely successful, not least because it is constantly reinventing itself; the Pedal Pusher has indeed become skinnier and stretchier in recent years. The girl in the photo is wearing a vintage Closed jeans from the late 1980s.

    Vintage Girbaud jeans?? This is a great look all around.

      I recognize that fly label, it’s Closed !!
      Related to Girbaud, super nice brand

      I recognize that fly label !!
      It’s Closed, related to Girbaud
      Super brand !!

    An example of the fact that pretty girls can wear anything. :)

      So very true and applicable here_I do not get the belt and the uncomfortably chunky shoes, all along with the super stylish “it” bag

      • Maria

        October 10, 2015 at 2:23 pm

        The shoes in questions are extremely comfortable, and they gibe bait of height. Walking in platforms is like walking on a a cloud x trampoline. I can’t think of anything more comfy. You may not like the look if you wish, but the comfort can not be denied. It may not be quite as good as a tennis shoe, but its a lot better then a high heel, or a flat with no support.

    The trench-coat, or the best fashion thing in Autumn…
    I approve!

    The top underneath, the trench, and the bag would work so beautifully with a skirt and pumps.

    The 1980s Goodwill jeans are totally normcore. The Depression era rope belt, I don’t even know.

    These pieces would’ve been worn better in Milan

    • Maria

      HAHA. Haven’t you hears? there is no such thing as “normcore”. Its just people dressing comfortably. I thought that was established ;) Although I can certainly understand how most anyone would rather run around in a pair of actually comfortable jeans and shoes rather then freeze and stagger around in a skirt and pumps.

      • Joannesez

        October 14, 2015 at 1:41 pm

        It’s not quite that simple. According to K-Hole, the New York trend forecasting agency that came up with the term, “Normcore seeks the freedom that comes with non-exclusivity. It finds liberation in being nothing special, and realises that adaptability leads to belonging. Normcore is a path to a more peaceful life.” So you see, there obviously is such a thing as normcore, and it’s not only about dressing comfortably.

    I thought it was beautiful combination of colors from the same palette, incredible.

    Take a pretty girl and dress her ugly – like it as elements but not as an outfit

  20. Joannesez

    October 8, 2015 at 4:09 am

    The shoes look orthopedic. Apart from that, this is the sort of outfit I wore in the 1990s – including the Closed jeans. It does look a bit droopy, as someone suggested, but she’s caught the vibe, and of course she would look great in any kind of clothes.

    I love this pic and I love her style!!!
    Anyone can suggest me a place in Italy where I can find a coat like that?
    Many thanks ;-)

    This is a complete mess. And more ugly shoes. What is happening to fashion?

  25. George

    October 8, 2015 at 9:08 am

    Another example of how anti-fashion-as-fashion doesn’t work. We get it, you’re dressing ugly on purpose… I mean, come on. Throw this EXACT getup on any average Joe(anne) and change the location to, I don’t know…West Virginia, and you’ll be thinking “homeless.”
    Oh wait, my bad…is this from Mugatu’s new Derelicte campaign???

    Perfect look. I may be biased because there is nothing I like better then vintage jeans and platform shoes. Its comfortable, flattering, and completely timeless. This look will never go out of style.

    nice coat.

    maybe it’s just because it’s shot from a low angle but those shoes look particularly huge, bit like those for people who have one leg shorter

  31. Stacey

    October 9, 2015 at 1:28 pm

    This is an awkward combination of the extremely polished (makeup, bag) and the sloppy. It reminds me of women in the 80s who would wear full makeup and gold jewelry with clunky running shoes and shorts.
    The hem of the coat drooping over the roll-ups is especially unfortunate.

    Wonderful mashup. A closet filled with some choice hand-me-downs works nowadays.
    Kinda like she just stepped off the boat at Ellis Island and can’t find her relatives.
