On The Street.....The Dramatic Item, Midtown

I saw this girl from a block away - she looked so great.
Like a little bit of Paris on Madison Ave.

Ah yes, very nice!...but just a thought...would like to see a newer look for her lovely hair..


Anonymous johanna said ... (9:04 AM) : 

this is great! I'm from Sweden..this blogg is really great. just wish we had some of the cloths here. love her jacket!


Blogger JB said ... (9:20 AM) : 

So stockholm. That is a very common look in stockholm for the moment. Nice but a little bit boring.


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (9:53 AM) : 

ok Johanna/Johan

Thanks to Sweden! but you two Swedes got to get together and decide if this look is or is not popular in Sweden


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:06 AM) : 

Delightful! In reference to "luvsunflowers" at 8:35 AM: I happen to like her "older" hair with her sharp-cut clothes. It softens the look, and makes her open, sweet face very approachable. I abhor the "total" look in fashion (read: "overdone")-- it's a grand, unexpected touch when something is slightly unpredictable... maybe even slightly askew. In closing, she looks gRRRRReat!!!!


Blogger mademoisellelala said ... (10:08 AM) : 

I absolutely love this look! And she is wearing the bag, not the other way around. The black provides the perfect background for a punchy accessory and her overall silhouette is just gorgeous. Think Grace Kelley in one of her classic Hitchcock getups! I want the whole outfit.


Anonymous Maria said ... (10:11 AM) : 

Also IS a popular look in Sweden but very few people in Stockholm look as fab as she does!


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (10:15 AM) : 

Her jacket is excellent. Her smile is lovely too!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:20 AM) : 

Her purse IS the look. And she's also gorgeous, that's why everything looks perfect. She's slim and tall enough to use this kind of coat, which looks hideous on shorter women.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:23 AM) : 

oh no, i beg to differ. This outfit is not very Swedish at all!This is something you find among the streets of Rue St Honore in Paris!
She looks amazing though.Its hard to pull this shape off, but she had done a good job!


Anonymous the coat department said ... (10:24 AM) : 

To be so young and put this together so well is very refreshing. The handbag over the arm suggests perhaps some presentation coaching-I hope not.
This is why coats are always best first impression.


Blogger JB said ... (10:24 AM) : 

Maria said it before me, It´s common but the swedish girls don´t wear it that stylish


Anonymous newty said ... (10:28 AM) : 

Love the proportions on this look...the skirt, the shoes, the bag. I want it all.


Blogger Just an Observation said ... (10:29 AM) : 

Definitely a European thing going here. Love her sense of style combined with her sense of effortlessness.
Very nice ...Very nice indeed.

Gracias Senor S.


Blogger Style Scout said ... (10:45 AM) : 

A very nice image and your subject would be chic and photo-worthy on any street in the world


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:46 AM) : 

She does look interesting, but she's a woman, not a girl.


Anonymous vale said ... (10:56 AM) : 

Oh...the Bag!!!I love it!I love Chloè!!!It's so perfect,like her look!


Anonymous Leigh said ... (11:05 AM) : 

OMG! LOVE! She looks fabulous!! And this look does not look swedish at all . . . Very parisian . . . In any event, I love it.


Anonymous anne said ... (12:02 PM) : 

true elegance and what a lovely smile.
i'm sort of glad she doesn't wear ancle boots.


Blogger savvylondon said ... (12:12 PM) : 

it's unfortunate the london high street has ruined this jacket-they are producing SO many, most terribly tailored. they aren't nearly as full or as nice as this one.
a lot of this is HER, she's very elegant, as someone else mentioned her wearing the bag, she's WEARING the whole look, as opposed to it wearing her. very nice.


Blogger S. said ... (12:56 PM) : 

Wow so much debate, so many comments!

Outfit to die for, dislike the bag.

Thanks for all the great images Sart!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:01 PM) : 

Lovely -- but surely she's a woman, rather than a "girl"?


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (1:08 PM) : 


she is a lovely women - i stand corrected


Blogger kare sansui said ... (1:08 PM) : 

well.... as seen from southern europe, I actually think it's more a kind of waspy preppy chic than european chic, like something you could picture Charlotte York-Goldenblatt in.


Anonymous roseag said ... (1:44 PM) : 

Actually I think a shorter stouter woman could get away with this look as well.

The top and bottom colors don't cut her in half. As long as the jacket flares out a bit and the skirt is straight she's going to have her waist accented.

I don't know about a larger woman with the bag. Sometimes more around the middle/bottom isn't so flattering.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:58 PM) : 

Fantastic. What a great balance in proportion, and what's more-I appreciate the youthfulness about her. Her look is polished and elegant without any note of constraint. I try to go for this as well, at the age of 21.


Blogger hoi polloi said ... (1:58 PM) : 

I like that her shoes aren't platforms or wedges or round toes :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:16 PM) : 

that had better be a real chloe bag.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:23 PM) : 

Isn't that that Rachel Roy trench?


Anonymous Rogerio S. said ... (2:28 PM) : 

Great look! Almost like those lines Dior was famous for on the 50's.


Blogger whyioughtta said ... (2:52 PM) : 

This is the first time I've seen anyone on your site wearing something that I own! The jacket. (Well, if it's not identical, it's pretty close.) She wears it well and I'll follow her lead with the pencil skirt...Hot yet elegant.


Blogger Tina Wiklund said ... (3:03 PM) : 

This is lovely and classy.

For the first time in my South African Life - I am looking forward to arriving in Sweden this winter and putting together something great to wear. Please show us more of the European Autum/Winter clothing. Its really really hot here and hard to imagine wearing a coat or winter clothing.


Blogger positively the same dame said ... (3:19 PM) : 

i think she looks wonderful. yes, she does have a little charlotte goldenblatt vibe, but she is much cooler than charlotte -- the lines of her jacket are very european, not at all american prep. charlotte would never wear the bag, either -- a status bag, yes, this bag, in this color, no -- but i have to admit it is my least favorite thing about the look. i simply prefer bags that don't scream out their names (and price tags). well, except the birkin and the kelly and anything at all by guiliana di camerino.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:28 PM) : 

I'd agree with Waspy preppy chic. Because of how I was raised, I have a hard time with the black/brown mix, but it looks good on her.


Blogger lepetitdoodler said ... (5:33 PM) : 

such an lovely, elegant look--the pencil skirt paired with the voluminous jacket. it's rather difficult to execute when you're petite, so i really do envy the leggy ladies who can get away with it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:01 PM) : 

A smaller, more elegant bag would suit this great ensemble perfectly. She sure is lovely.

Thanks Sart, for making me happy every morning. I could easily skip my breakfast, but I would never skip my Sartorialist and cappuccino every morning!


Blogger Kathleen said ... (6:04 PM) : 

I see Charlotte Goldenblatt with the status bag - particularly in season six!

About the bag: normally I would hate a brown-bag with an all-black ensemble. I think the fact that this is tan, rather than chocolate brown, helps it out, and it just makes the outfit "pop". A black bag would have been so boring and, as someone commented, much less Hitchcock than this.

She just needs her hair in a chignon and a little veil over one eye...


Blogger Golightly said ... (7:09 PM) : 

I love the silhouette; the big volume jacket paired with the pencil skirt. And the tan bag adds the 'oopmh' to the look. Loving it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:58 PM) : 

she looks amazing!!!
; )


Anonymous nanflan said ... (9:02 PM) : 

Nice, but I'd like to see her hair up. Maybe a messy French twist to keep things from looking too "studied". A nice look overall, those pumps are spectacular and really polish the ensemble.


Blogger gizhou said ... (11:06 PM) : 

The smile makes the look!


Blogger AnastasiaC said ... (11:18 PM) : 

gorgeous! not sure about the summerish bag but her pointy shoes are FAB!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:15 AM) : 

Oh, she's so cute! I love her outfit. And I, for one, completely understand why you called her a "girl" instead of a woman -- she exudes a guilelessness that is so young and fresh. Just thought you should know that not all women are put off by the "girl" word.

By the way, I'm totally intrigued by your popularity in Sweden. Have you tried plugging "Sartorialist" into Google Trends, which charts the popularity of particular web searches. Your biggest audience appears to be in Sweden!! Who would have known!

I'm from L.A. but am in NY on business -- your blog inspired me to stay an extra day and roam the streets in order to people-watch. Love the NY street shots even more than the fantastic European shows!!


Anonymous Shannon... said ... (4:37 AM) : 

i love it - looks quite giambattista valli to me (but it's not)...

and while i like the idea of the punchy tan bag on black, i can't help feeling that the slouchy-ness of the paddington bag doesn't really work with the tailoring of her jacket + pencil skirt combo. i'd rather see an oversized envelope-shaped clutch or something like that, imo.

lovely look though, one of my favourites up with the woman in vintage valentino.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (11:32 AM) : 

Lovely picture, Scott.


Anonymous LD said ... (12:34 PM) : 

I'll definitely stop in my track if she walk pass me on the street!

Usually I don't approve brown with black, but I like how she carried the whole ensemble..
really lovely lady..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:03 AM) : 

I agree with most- love the overall look and dare I say that the "ladylike" look is becoming rare? But don't like the Chloe bag and I think a less obvious make would add a more subtle air.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:47 PM) : 

where can i get a coat like hers???


Anonymous jess said ... (9:11 PM) : 

wheres that coat from , i love it ! so stylish with a hint of cuteness as well!

she should cut her hair , her hair shd touch the tip of her shoulders and , she shoudl blow it real straight! then shed perfect!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:51 AM) : 

She looks like a chic-er version of Charlotte from Sex In The City!

I agree - she looks great ... gorgeous!
