On the Street..... Sodermalm, Stockholm

What a perfect combination of hi-waisted pants and short waisted jacket!

Ok, she looks awesome, actually it really is the very first (if not the only) time I see the high-waist trousers working well on the streets ... still, you will not see me wearing it!
Dude, it took so long for the trousers cut to evolve into low cut, we cannot go back, read Chrales Darwin to better understand that...

this makes me proud of beeing swedish

The model certainly has classic, lovely features.

I am of two minds regarding her choice of outfit.

It is not unattractive. But somehow a big aggressive, almost a bit butch. A bit dark. I am not sure....

Perhaps I am wrong here, and imposing a preconceived notion of what her face speaks to me, but I would think that she would be so much more accessible and feminine (sorry) if she wore softer colors and more flowing outfit with more movement and grace.

A bit too strict looking as it is.

Perhaps I cannot understand her from this one photo.

Beautiful soft light in this photo! And beautiful woman, wow!

Soooo glad I'm going to Stockholm this summer!

I love that your shots in Sweden and Germany are not all about ridiculously oversized bags! Refreshing.

Oh so beautiful!


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

Wow. She actually makes those pants work.


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (10:25 AM) : 

It is so hard to find a beautiful pair of hi-waisted pants, and also a girl who does look good with them. She did it, she looks good!


Blogger Iheartfashion said ... (10:29 AM) : 

Ooooh, nice look! She definitely gets the proportions right.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:37 AM) : 

anybody know who the pants are by/where i can get them in the u.s.?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:50 AM) : 

bravo! LOVE the proportions. Thank goodness for the return of high waists and wide legs! RIP the tyranny of the skinny jean! no objection to skinny jeans as such, but it is nice to have alternatives.


Blogger BlackFashionista said ... (11:12 AM) : 

That is, to me, a very tipical Stockholm-look. High waisted pants that are very unflattering, and the trendiest thing in town - the leather jacket! Everyone is wearing it everywhere!!! Drives me mad... he he

Love you, You are the best

This could be any other major city in the developed world, no?


Blogger ekka said ... (11:33 AM) : 

i live in sthlm and i love it, we sweds just have it in us, or well some of us. Honestly most of os dresses the same, like those with fashionblogs, they dressed wery uncool but well well, nice outfit


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:09 PM) : 

You are so right about the perfect combination of high pants, short jacket. With her hair pulled back to show off her face and the lines of the clothes it is just fantastic.


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

Just can't get into long wide-legged pants--especially with the figure she most likely has.


Blogger Genomskåda said ... (12:37 PM) : 

It looks good!


Blogger Julia said ... (12:45 PM) : 

this is flawless except for the cream and white mixture (shoes & shirt..)


Blogger fashionaddict said ... (12:47 PM) : 

Wow, great to see someone do the high-waisted thing without looking like a fashion victim. Those trousers have a great fit - too many high-waist trousers fit too snugly at the top of the thighs.

I like that it doesn't reference any obvious look (that I know of)from a runway or a fashion personality - it feels very original.


Blogger daniqueconijn said ... (12:47 PM) : 

her expression is kind of .... i don't know
the pants are quite a dare


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:07 PM) : 

Very chic and cool without trying too hard! I love it!


Anonymous fawn said ... (1:54 PM) : 

wow, amazing! unfortunately, i think you have to be incredibly tall to pull off that high waistline... otherwise i'd be all over pants like that.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:21 PM) : 

I Love this...There's something about that makes it work so well...But i'm not so sure about the shoes.


Anonymous jose said ... (4:25 PM) : 

you are an amazing man!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:25 PM) : 

Perfect... one of the few rare ways of pulling off high-waisted pants. Thanks to the both of you for the inspiration!

for some reason she reminds me of the WW2 "women's movement/strong women doing men's jobs" posters. she has an underlying strength that somehow comes through in her style. its feminine and very self-assured. she's very beautiful.


Blogger Sempre Libera said ... (5:29 PM) : 

Very, very cool. I had yet to see anyone (besides models) pull off the high-waisted look but she does it beautifully. I think the key is the drape of fabrics - the pants, the blouse. Not sure the espadrilles work, but otherwise she looks perfect!


Blogger Candid Cool said ... (5:45 PM) : 

ohhh she is too good


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:22 PM) : 

First girl I've seen anywhere that actually rocks the high-waist jeans!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:28 PM) : 

very well done because this is a very hard outfit to pull off.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:48 PM) : 

she looks very cool!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:07 PM) : 

i noticed that your pictures not only showcase fashion, but also wonderful places. i'm thinking of moving to europe and since you've been all over, sart, what would you say your favorite city is?


Anonymous gregory_fb said ... (9:13 PM) : 

I am so in love with this look ... and her espadrilles especially.

I'm really curious, though, about what's in the bag. I mean, aren't you?


Blogger editor said ... (9:35 PM) : 

love love love a high-waisted pair of pants. these are gorgeous.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:40 PM) : 

Yes, I love how she's pulled off this style. It looks classy and edgy, a nice contempo mix.


Blogger blushing apples said ... (10:21 PM) : 

ok, i admit the high-waisted jeans have grown on me. she makes them seem flattering, when really arent.


Blogger Kathleen said ... (10:42 PM) : 

I wish I wasn't so shortwaisted, as she looks great in these pants.

Finally, a non-model (I'm assuming) who can carry off this trend.


Blogger Asian Models Blogger said ... (11:17 PM) : 

I love this look. The exaggeratedly cinched waist made the wide leg pants less bulky. Paired with the cropped leather jacket made this look complete.

Perfect combination of volume and fit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:37 PM) : 

wow she is beautiful. that outfit kind of reminds me of what the olsen twins wear. however, that style suits this lady more because she actually has a woman's body. she doesn't look like she's 12 (as the olsens do)...

i love the proper and prim workwear topped off with an edgy leather jacket.


Blogger Jenna said ... (1:11 AM) : 

Pulling off those remarkable pants is quite the feat.


Blogger Muddy said ... (2:13 AM) : 

tres chic.


Blogger Blue Floppy Hat said ... (4:33 AM) : 

She carries it off well and looks comfortable, but I'm still not a fan of high waisted trousers. Still, very polished, and the wide legs look easy. The pulled-back hair is a good touch, too.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:29 AM) : 

the best wearing of high waisted pants i've seen for a long time.


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (10:21 AM) : 

She looks amazing - the trousers are perfection!


Blogger herringbonekid said ... (10:34 AM) : 

they're great in the leg but i'm not fond of the deep waistband and 4 buttons. a detail like that is too 70s. i know i'm in a minority by not worshippng the 70s however.


Blogger Rebecca said ... (11:51 AM) : 

So utterly modern.This is just the kind of look NYC magazine girls will be copying in the near future, I think. But it's hard to do it this well, as this lady has. The trousers are completely perfect in every way and the proportions are very well played. Leather jackets can be tricky and often have a shapeless, middle aged person vying young look to them, a very Oprah Fanatic/Midlife crisis feel. But the crop and the collar here really give an old standard a shot in the arm, it's modern and fresh. The t-shirt lightens the whole outfit up nicely. A shirt would have been a total bore here.

Her no or minimal/natural make up here is not only beautiful, it works with the outfit and is so day appropriate. I love seeing women who don't have overly made up faces, most women don't realise that they look fresher and prettier without it!


Blogger hoi polloi said ... (12:39 PM) : 

Now that is cool!


Blogger Jennine said ... (5:03 PM) : 

i love high-waisted trousers. they are very femme.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:08 PM) : 

awesome trousers - just got them from topshop myself!


Blogger kami_manu said ... (7:57 PM) : 

I loved the way she surprised us with those white (?) shoes with the dark outfit..
And there´s a questions...when are you going to come to Brazil to picture us?



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:46 AM) :
