As I sit here with the bottom half of my face slathered in vaseline to mitigate the effects of three days of non-stop, headcold-induced nose blowing, I look at pictures like these and despair of ever being this fabulously put together.
Picture from The Sartorialist.
What works for me: the simplicity, the whimsical use of color, the mix of feminine and masculine elements, the proportions, the quality of the fabrics and the bag (Bottega Veneta, I’m pretty sure).
I would try: the scarf, the knee length coat over the ankle pants, the colorful shoes, the bag.
I’ll pass on: the belt.
Picture from garance doré.
What works for me: the clean lines, the mostly monochromatic look, (again) the combination of masculine and feminine elements, and the ankle pants to show off the killer shoes.
I would try: mixed texture monochromatic top/bottom, slim ankle pants with a heeled sandal.
I’ll pass on: the black scarf, the shiny snakeskin fabric on the pants, the 4″ heels, the trendy bag.
These are her shoes, BTW.
