lots of trips to barneys and an expensive dye job does not style make.


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (6:59 PM) : 

sounds like someone above is a hater!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:03 PM) : 

I totally back that comment. anyone rich can look like this; its not style, its money.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:14 PM) : 

I agree, I'm not impressed.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:22 PM) : 

I'm finding that look a little obnoxious as well. She's a little Beverly Hills (I'm in L.A.).


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

it is a bit random choice. You can see she's in a hurry anyway. :)


Blogger ML said ... (7:42 PM) : 

the cut of the coat as well as the enormous pyramid studs (initially startling) actually make for great outerwear.

however, i think the leggings are a miss.


Blogger Sarah said ... (7:56 PM) : 

Personally, I'm so over leggings.


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (8:23 PM) : 

I think the leggings are the best part - watch, they are making a big come back.


Blogger la femme said ... (8:46 PM) : 

I like her outfit a lot (she looks a little bitchy just because she is rushing by on a cell phone). The studded, long cuffs on the jacket are unique and interesting, and the black leggings/light pumps combination looks great. The Sartorialist is right- the leggings are going to be very popular this spring (beats opaque tights)- I'll be sick of them in a few months, but for now, thumbs up.


Blogger la femme said ... (8:49 PM) : 

I am done with the Chloe Sliverado bag though. C'est finit...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:53 PM) : 

sartorialist i usually agree with you 100% but not on this one.

leggings made their comeback about 2 years ago, and now they are so over for now, at least. isn't it obvious... even abercrombie started selling them!

I hate the wide bottomed coat over ultra slim legs look a lot of these women have. It makes them look so dainty, pedantic and high-maintenance.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:04 PM) : 

If I had the money I would have the bag and coat. The fit is excellent. She looks nice. I know where I can get a longish coat that suits my budget...I think I need it right now.

Question: who should wear leggings?

I like the leggings, but do you think this is for the young ladies? I have seen lace and solid leggings worn under a longish skirt. Perhaps all ages could wear that.

As a not young lady, I would perhaps wear this with a knee lengthtskirt and boots, or slim black pants and black heels.


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (9:13 PM) : 

I think we have only begun to see leggings and tights done right by woman older than 16 - this last weekend NYT had a great photo essay by Bill Cunningham on the legs of Paris!

maybe more than leggings I think the leg will be an even more important focus than it has been in a while

Thank you, Mr. S., for answering my question.

I did see the photo essay you mention. I did not relate it to this photo, but it does relate. Those were also excellant photos. I always thought opaque hose looked great - navy, black, brown. And this is very affordable fashion.

So perhaps for the lady of a certain age (my age?) the coat could been worn with black tights and black high heeled shoes and a knee length skirt.

I must call you out on this one. I've been seeing hipster girls of college age and older wear leggings with sandals and heels for the last 3 years.

Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (6:19 AM) : 

ok, you got me - girls of 19 years or older


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:36 AM) : 

I saw leggings re-emerging shortly after the Ugg explosion, so that would be about, um, 4 to 5 years ago. And these would be on my female contemporaries (I'm 31), not teenyboppers. Done, done, done. And didn't like the re-emergence of the look to begin with. And how does it go: "If the NYT features it, the trend has been dead and buried for at least sizx months?"

In any case, I feel that the look is not at all well balanced. Sorry to have to add to the hate.

And I was so thrilled about my recent purchase of KD leggings and warmers.....

But worn with biker boots not leopard print heels.


Blogger jean thief said ... (11:30 AM) : 

leggings are done!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:48 AM) : 

Love the coat, I think it's perfect but I am so "eh" on the leggings. Is it fair to say if you've done this trend (leggings) the first time around can you or should you do it again??? I have to admit I did the leggings under skirts & dresses years ago circa the 80's.


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:50 AM) : 

Sartorialist! I dying to see more of the high-maintenance look! I love it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:37 PM) : 

There is something very obnoxious about her look. It's so ostentatious. I think if you took this outfit and put it on someone else it might be better. But I agree that she does leggings right. I like them.

Dear Mr. S, thanks for the women's looks lately. They are great!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:27 PM) : 

For me it's not so much about the jacket (which I'll admit I think looks a little silly on her), it's the way she's carrying herself. She's all slouched over to lean into her phone conversation, and it looks to me like if I could see the photo in motion, she'd be wobbling around on those heels. For me, it's about style and grace... she's almost there.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:30 PM) : 

Leggings are not "done" they are "dormant"


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:24 PM) : 

As much as I love thee Sartorialist, I must disagree with you! Leggings have reached saturation among the fashion flock--we can now see them sold at H&M, Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters, which I think reflects a mainstream trend. I do agree however, that the leg is a big focus this season. Opaque Tights and stockings are seeing a huge resurgence. Leggings though? Meh.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:48 PM) : 

i don't think it's an issue whether leggings are over or not - i mean, wouldn't most people here agree that great style is timeless? - but rather just how it works in this particular situation. i agree that the leggings just don't work with the jacket. and the jacket looks a bit big on her. and finally, when it comes to the fancy leathers/skins, the jacket PLUS bag PLUS shoes is overkill.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:47 PM) : 

i don't have anything against what this woman is wearing. what bothers me is the cell phone. i still think it looks pretentious when walking and talking on the phone at the same time.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:53 AM) : 

I think this woman looks good - but in a very mainstream way. Mr Satorialist, I prefer your more edgy photos.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:00 PM) : 

of course she's in a hurry...she just spent 3 hours at the hairdressers.

going over the archives again and again...
