On The Street......Brown/Metalic, Uptown

The other day I did a post about Brow/Black color combo.

Yesterday I saw this young lady and I thought her Brown/Metallic color story was really great.

Also I usually think of a plaid coat as country-ish and more cozy but she gives it a bit of city edge working it back to the silver metallic.

Great look!...but I would have liked to see her face to complete the picture. Did she request anonimity?

Wow - she looks fantastic! I love the composition of this photo - looks great as a 'piece' of style not being able to see her face. I love her chunky ring too. That coat and the boots are excellent - she has true style!

Scott, I love your blog, but sometimes I find it so depressing. I mean, I think I have an eye for style and I can put myself together (when I'm not having one of those "I'm too cold to think" days), but then I look at your pictures and I read the comments and I just feel so unstylish it keeps me up at night. I wish I were 12 again, putting together my crazy outfits (tartan tights, anyone?). Anyway, thank you for these pieces of inspiration. At the very least, they motivate me to try and find my inner stylist again.

Wonderful shot

LIKE: Wonderful classic coat. She's very cosmopolitan and sophisticated. The height of the boots is perfect and lovely accesories.

DISLIKE: The boots are too bright that they overwhelm the coat. Maybe something a little more subtle or a shade that picks up one of the darker grey lines of the coat.

Great outfit, woman of mystery!

Frequently I don't love outfits without much color, but there are enough twists here to make her very stylish.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:09 AM) : 

That is almost a PERFECT shot except for that thing behind her -- I first thought it was a shopping bag but whatever it is, I find it distracting and out of place in this otherwise-stunning photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:30 PM) : 

The outfit works cuz the jacket brings it together. What's silver metallic here? The boots?

The question leads me to ask, Sart, whether it's possible to have the pictures be even BIGGER when we click on them to enlarge.


No really...please?

Seeing the finer details of some outfits (and I know you lovingly point them out to us every so often) would be even more splendorific.

The metallic boots reminds me of the cartoon "The Jetsons." Not sure why, but it does. I do love the overall look though.


Blogger Another Shade of Grey said ... (1:43 PM) : 

The boots match her buttons.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:59 PM) : 

Beautiful trench coat, I love the plaid wool style and yes you are right about the boots, they add the zipp!

Aren't there more dressed up people out in the city now close to year's end and holidays?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:04 PM) : 

I love the color of the boots against the gray on the ground and in the back


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:12 PM) : 

the colors of the coat are wonderful -- such a wonderful shade of brown, accented by those pewter buttons, which she has emphasized to great effect with the boots and the ring. nice.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:13 PM) : 

That is a wonderful outfit.

Metallics are such great neutrals. Sometimes it's too much but this outfit is not overdone - this outfit is just right.


Blogger 39-3 said ... (3:30 PM) : 

I love the boots --they make her look like a statue that's coming to life from head to toe.


Anonymous Barney P. said ... (3:33 PM) : 

Hey, that's really great! I love your blog.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:55 PM) : 

Give her credit for trying something different, but I think a black wool coat with those boots, or brown leather boots with the coat she's wearing, would have better.

Sart, Please include larger files to view when we click on them. It can be sometimes difficult to see the photos on small laptops and poor quality monitors.

This coat is so amazing. I have a similar style in red. But not so much for function, I'm usually freezing once I'm out the door. =\


Blogger invisible girl said ... (8:21 PM) : 

Love it! The mix of plaid with metallic is something I never would have thought of ... now I'll pull out my metallic cowboy boots and try it ...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:24 PM) : 

i love this it's subtle version of the futuristic look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:10 PM) : 

The reason it works is because the buttons on the coat give off a sheen that is a bit "metallic" looking. It's subtle, but the outfit does look great.


Blogger Tamberk said ... (9:25 PM) : 

Tres chic!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:46 PM) : 

Love this...she takes tweed to a whole new level.


Anonymous Jay said ... (12:58 AM) : 

I just love her coat! And her chunky ring.


Anonymous TeMo said ... (2:57 AM) : 

I love the country-city-disco-office vibe, she could go anywhere in that outfit!


Anonymous Rosa Luxembourg said ... (8:41 AM) : 

Its funny, the reaction against the bright boots and the colourful patch in the background (whatever it is). They bring to mind the expression "staring yourself blind" .
Looking to much into a photo will ultimately leave you with less. Outfits are not made for hours of scrutiny, but just for looking at as you interact with the wearer.
And if you just met this girl, all you would know is that she´s very well dressed. Her presence would make you forget the careful analysis. Had she worn your duller boots, she would have seemed a less interesting.
As for the bright patch, it is a necessary counterweight to the rest of the picture. All greys makes for a boring picture..

luv it!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:43 PM) : 

Awesome! That's elegance at its best! Beautiful shot.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:00 PM) : 

this is one of the most beautiful shots you have taken, sart. absolutely love it.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:51 PM) : 

this woman looks like eryka badu...her style is unmistakable. perhaps that's why her face is not shown?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:04 PM) : 

Those lips look suspiciously like Erykah Badu's...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:12 PM) : 

a killing combination. in a good way, of course.


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

Great Shot! I think it makes the picture a little bit weird without the face... Greetz from Germany, Jan


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:15 AM) : 

!!WOW! This rocks. This look is Tina Turner, Pam Grier(sp?) in a trench! This is Shaft all the way and this white girl is LOVING it!

No wonder she wanted to remain anonymous. She didn't want to blind us with too much coolality all at once!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:48 AM) : 

Don't need to see her face. Hawt.
