Blogger Amelia StyleDownUnder said ... (7:17 PM) : 

wow she makes navy & denim look so good together - lovely pic!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:25 PM) : 

Wow. I keep on looking at this...I would look so bad in this outfit I cannot tell you. And honestly, I would never dream of wearing cutoff denim shorts! UGH! But still, this woman looks great. I really don't understand why this works on her. She must have broad enough shoulders to carry the blouse, and the dark on dark blues look sumptuous and not...denim-y.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:29 PM) : 

i am sorry, but the shirt is drop dead gorgeous. even if some people would pair something elegant with a casual piece, who would think to wear such an elegant shirt with cut off shorts. furthermore, i almost never appreciate high heel shoes but i really couldn't imagine this ensemble with any other shoe, right down to the size of the heel. she looks at once beautiful and so comfortable.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:31 PM) : 

I think the belt makes this, no?


Blogger CULTURE CREATORS said ... (7:42 PM) : 

Very innovative, great look! Who new mens jeans could look so good at that length!:)

I feel you as a colser friend
have a nice day!


Blogger pearlaceous said ... (7:53 PM) : 

Wow! Great shot! Love her look.. Love the all the action in the photo!

Great combos - her unexpected mix of blouse-belt-cutoffs-shoes, but most of all the adjacent gentleman in what looks like Vietcong PJs. Angela in Hong Kong


Blogger Robert said ... (8:10 PM) : 

Nice shot, very cinematographic.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:25 PM) : 

yes...this is a wonderful look...and from Milano...what more could you ask for...


Blogger Blaise said ... (9:02 PM) : 

I love this look..

It is very stylish and tasteful yet still subtle.. I love the shade of bluue of her top.. and the belt buckle too (Hermes)...


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

what a contrast! an old man next to her.


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

I like the shirt but I think the shorts need to be more tailored or more cropped to match the rest of the ensemble.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:16 PM) : 

Oh yeah, do it to it. Hermes belt, instant validity. She does it with a smile, thats what counts. Oops ! she missed a loop, now I'm smiling. Great natural look. Props for doing your own thing.

At first glance this woman looks so... unstylish. But then you notice the quality of the shirt, the belt, and the great shoes. I love it!


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:39 PM) : 

I covet that belt.


Blogger Concordia Personal Shopper said ... (10:04 PM) : 

Fantastic to wear during the day or evening! the eclectic look is attractive.
The sandals makes it spicy.
The hairstyle is ok too.
Great taste!


Blogger BDC-NYC said ... (10:09 PM) : 

I hope the comments above about the belt were sarcasm....
The truth is the belt cheapens the whole outfit. Without the belt, I would think she was a sophisticated, stylish, perhaps a little mischevious European woman. With the belt, she looks like a tourist.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:15 PM) : 

Something about the proportions of the cut-offs is not flattering, but this photo is still a great inspirational ensemble. The blouse is so old-school romantic, the cut-offs so modern... the chunky heels brings it into present day, and the Hermes belt just unites it all with a great, understated flourish. Thanks, Mr. Sartorialist.


Blogger LIO said ... (10:17 PM) : 

I like believing she is looking lovingly at the man next to her.


Blogger girl@boroughvintage said ... (10:26 PM) : 

I love the length and roominess of the cut-offs.


Blogger Tina Frey Designs said ... (10:40 PM) : 

So this is what you should do with your old baggy jeans?! It looks great on her! I am inspired to do the same. I love the addition of the Hermes belt!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:16 PM) : 

I love that she is wearing an Hermes belt with cutoffs. LOVE IT!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:18 PM) : 

At first glance I thought she was an officer of some sort at work. After enlarging the pic.I realized my mistake. The color of the outfit is challenging.


Blogger Niche said ... (11:30 PM) : 

I would like to say this is one of the best outfits I have seen on this site because it is something that is appropriate for everyday AND inspires me. It is very stylish but would not put off someone who would ask what the words sartorial or hermes are about. Trust me, I have been asked to explain both before. Oh Engineers!


Blogger JW said ... (11:42 PM) : 

She pulls this off, although I think it is questionable.. particularly the pants and shoes. The heels are a little bit too 90s in my opinion.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:01 AM) : 

oh wow that's an amazing navy-inky colour shirt, not so school like uniform!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:57 AM) : 

I love the moment captured, the attitude is great.
But over all, the cut offs just ruin it. I can live with, and love every thing else, but not the cut offs.


Blogger Delilah Garside said ... (1:17 AM) : 

This is entirely unexpected. I'm not sure if I care for the fit of the jeans.. it's almost so off that it's on, however.


Blogger Max said ... (1:35 AM) : 

I have to say, I usually can see what Scott sees; but I'm not really getting this one at all.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:27 AM) : 

^ i agree. I just don't get it. The colors, textures, cut off jeans?

its a no no.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:24 AM) : 

what a funny contrast.


Blogger Laurence John said ... (3:31 AM) : 

those shorts would look better with a tool belt and a grubby white t-shirt. her crotch is too baggy and manly looking, and the length of the shorts draws attention to her knees rather than the whole leg. the rumpled blouse is too close to the rumpled blue shorts making the whole thing merge into one.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:05 AM) : 

Love the shoes, the skirt and the belt but with the jeans , I think it's too much ...anyway, she's beautiful !


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:20 AM) : 

I loooooove it! Love her top, cutoffs, shoes and most especially, her belt! A finishing touch really works wonders! :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:22 AM) : 

wow nice shot. Che bella ragazza!


Blogger jkh said ... (5:03 AM) : 

sexy godess.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:10 AM) : 

I am not convinced... to baggy...


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:22 AM) : 

strike a pose!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:55 AM) : 

I agree with those who are not thrilled about the fit of the shorts...there is something a bit awkward about them. Maybe it is simply because they are too big? Anyway, I understand the direction that this otrying to take, but I am not convinced that it really works here. Beasutiful blouse and shoes though.


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:26 AM) : 

I think the whole ensemble it what makes the thing stand out.

Firs, the woman. She's that kind of what I would call clean all-american. Fresh, nice, with one smart attitude towards life. Very much what Coco Chanel would like to see on a woman.

Then, the blouse. It's something that does not limit her but gives her freedom and, at the same time, it's femenine without being girlie. The drapes and the way the fabric wraps gives that sense of freedom.

And then what's really outstanding and gives us a feel of seventies, the cut off jeans, even with that thread of fabric that kind of round up the cut off.

The shoes are making it as well. Shorts were for girls having fun back in the forties and fifties and that kind of shoes were with those shoes.

And she's so urban and outstanding I like it :)


Blogger muhajababe said ... (7:52 AM) : 

the belt and that soft shirt with those cut off pants... wow ! never thought distressed jeans could look so good, would never have the courage to wear it like that


Blogger Jorge from W Palm Beach said ... (7:57 AM) : 

Call me a label whore but I think you can hardly go wrong with an H Belt- I invested in mine years ago and still get a kick when wearing it! While I think she cut off a nice pair of jeans, and I would never wear cut-offs myself, I think she pulls it off by wearing them with an obviously current shirt, and timeless shoes (is anyone else thinking S&M straps?). Maybe the whole point is that her purse does not overwhelm her. Jorge from W Palm Beach


Blogger The Spicers said ... (8:15 AM) : 

Makes me want to cut off my jeans!


Blogger Unknown said ... (8:29 AM) : 

So stylish!

The belt and shoes pull this eclectic look together. She is surprisingly minimalist, yet the pleats in the blouse add weight. I like the way she has chosen the uncharacteristic touch of cut-offs to complete this look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:46 AM) : 

I don't like it - it's too baggy and the shoes don't go with the pants. Also the colors are too dark together.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:59 AM) : 

That's a Gap women's shirt from S/S '07 - was only available in the UK (and no... I don't work for Gap!)


Blogger glass1/2full said ... (9:08 AM) : 

yeah. he looks great. but that damn chick just ruins the image:). seriously, she looks sublime.


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (9:20 AM) : 

Wonderful. The one colour-ness looks perfect and mixes the delicacy of the blouse with the rough edges of the demin.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:28 AM) : 

In my humble opinion I think the belt is total cheese. Sorry, Sart!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:05 AM) : 

i love the whole look together - attitude, accessorizing, and of course she can pull it off. she's got the legs, the height, and face.


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:18 AM) : 

i adore the shades of navy of her shirt and jeans, but i'm ambivalent about the proportions of the cut-offs. would they work better with the outfit if they were more tailored or would that make the outfit lose it's looseness? they wouldn't work so well on someone who wasn't so slender, but it's a good inspiration shot. i really want her blouse.


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

That isn't a gap shirt, that's a gap tunic dress- she must've had to do a lot of tucking in...


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (11:01 AM) : 

Great look!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:19 PM) : 

Best comment I've read in LONG time!:

Oh yeah, do it to it. Hermes belt, instant validity. She does it with a smile, thats what counts. Oops ! she missed a loop, now I'm smiling. Great natural look. Props for doing your own thing.

9:16 PM

Oh, and everyone needs to stop acting like cutoff jean shorts are something new. She's just "fook-yall" enough to wear them. She probably got them out of the old man's bag anyway.

You know, in actuality, that shirt is probably one of them tunic dresses that she tucked into the shorts. I like, I like!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:20 PM) : 

I absolutely love this look. I have been wearing it all summer (the baggy cropped bottoms with extreme heels, feminine or chunky). I think it is an amazing contrast and an even greater statement saying that you can basically pull off anything, look androgynous, but at the same time your main purpose is fulfilled by looking more feminine than anything because again, this is a statement that you are confident wearing pieces like this and feeling and looking sexy.
Well done!


Blogger Cassaundra said ... (12:42 PM) : 

cut-offs have never looked so good.


Blogger Megan said ... (12:43 PM) : 

The sandals are what really make it pulled together. I have shorts like that. I wear them when I'm bumming it on the beach. If she was wearing any other shoe, it would not be as stunning.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:46 PM) : 

Go on girl, rock those heels, that Hermes belt and those ridiculous shorts! Great shot Sart!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:49 PM) : 

Shoes are amazing ... ! <3


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:52 PM) : 

so well put together, i am really feelin the cut off shorts, i'm ususally not a fan but somehow the frays and indigo work in this sitch.


Blogger amy said ... (1:10 PM) : 

wow. great style. incredible picture. love it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:38 PM) : 

She looks like a sailor marooned on a desert island who circumcised her dungarees to keep cool. The Hermes belt and the sturdy shoes complete this cruel joke. What has this poor woman done that the Gods of Taste should afflict her so?!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:00 PM) : 

I have that shirt, Gap S/S 2006.
I have no idea why some people commenting here think that the fact that the belt is Hermes validates the outfit or something.


Blogger An Upstart said ... (2:40 PM) : 

An Hermes belt paired with cut off denim, who knew? I love the juxta-pose-ition ; )


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:41 PM) : 

like it, i like that blue


Blogger Michael said ... (2:53 PM) : 




Blogger Donna said ... (3:34 PM) : 

Love this outfit, doesn't help that she is gorgeous and can pull it off.


Blogger hakkamui said ... (11:27 PM) : 

This is outright gorgeous, from the blouse to the belt to the cut-off denim and her high-heeled sandal.
It is my kind of style :-) (if I can afford the belt!


Blogger Kanani said ... (11:56 PM) : 

Yes, yes, yes.
The fullness and formality of the shirt is nicely unbalanced by the rawness of cutoffs. I like the belt and the shoes --the pedicure are utterly impeccable.
But the best thing? The scooters! Were she to hop on one of those, it would only make her more splendid.


Blogger alex said ... (3:46 AM) : 

i love this look!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:13 AM) : 

adorable! creativity with style


Blogger Pranav said ... (7:05 AM) : 

more than anything else I love the this a candid shot or did you get her to pose?


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

it's not a tunic dress! it's a shirt. i have one too.


Blogger Lizzie said ... (10:51 AM) : 

Absolutely heinous. I mean, come on guys, she is wearing jorts! (and not well, mind you). This is my least favorite look I've ever seen on the site! I'm so very dissappointed. How can all these people like this?

Even if she is trying to be ironic or something...I still hate it.


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

the first thought that came to me was wow - powerful. very chic. love her smile and attitude; she looks like a modern-day katherine hepburn.

the sandals make the outfit pop. i didn't notice the belt but after reading comments, i think the belt also pulls the look together - if it didn't have a logo, that would be fine, but something to cinch in the waist makes this stylish.

and i love that the shorts are a bit rough and off - if they were tailored and cuffed, the outfit might look even more put together, but not look as interesting.


Blogger Fashion Is Poison said ... (9:53 PM) : 

wow. i could never wear blue on blue but she does it so perfectly.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:42 AM) : 

First there's the outfit which is worth a look. Then there's the woman who is worth studying herself. But the photo is in another whole realm. It's like a short story of a movie all in one glance. Lots of stories here. Genius.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:26 PM) : 

Hey Sart, did you tell her to take that pose? She does not look like if she was on her phone seriously. Her smile fits the irony of the look well. Love the physiognomy. -j


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:08 PM) : 

Okay Sart, overlooking the BIG, PHAT "H" - this is a worthy juxtaposition for the camera's eye.

And those shoes - simply FIERCE!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:21 AM) : 

something about the textures of the man beside her and the clothes she is wearing herself...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:50 AM) : 

Very chic! She looks great.


Blogger Miss Cavendish said ... (4:56 PM) : 

Wish the shorts were a tad slimmer (and, truth be told, hemmed!).


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:22 AM) : 

The gal is stunning ... the outfit not so much.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:52 AM) : 

This girl looks drop dead gorgeous not only in terms of her own looks but the outfit too. Also a neat bit of photographic juxtaposition with the old guy. One of your best efforts. I've looked at the pic several times.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:02 AM) : 

I hate the belt. I am so over logos!


Blogger designerman said ... (7:03 PM) : 

This woman has one of the most breathtaking profiles...she was very smart to show it in the photograph!

And she really knows what she's doing style-wise. The thick sole of the shoe, the wide leather straps, the belt, the way the cut offs sit on the hips, the subtle combo of the blue shirt and denim...

She's perfect!


Blogger nidyawiguno said ... (5:29 AM) : 

i love her classic Hermes belt. i want it! :(
