On the Street.....Earth tones & Sunshine, Milano

I love how simple this outfit is, and yet it's so chic. Her bag, the shades of color in her skirt and sweater, the cut of the v neck - it's all of the little details that make this so special.

She looks great !

Nb : I was so disappointed to miss you @ Colette when you signed your amazing book. I would be so glad to keep a "souvenir". I hope that you will come back among us, in Paris.

Nevertheless, your book is great !


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

Scott, it was such a pleasure to meet you last night in SF! Please keep shooting in Milan - I hope to bump into you there one day. Ciao!

Top - That SMILE.
Bottom - Them sandals.


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

Those colours complement her skin perfectly, and I'd like to have that sweater myself!


Blogger Soren Lorensen said ... (11:29 AM) : 

for me it is the balance

the jumper is long but not too long

the skirt is short but not too short

and the necklace adds that flash of magic


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:31 AM) : 

I really like this style.


Blogger stacy said ... (11:32 AM) : 

couldn't agree more.

she looks like effortless perfection.

spectacular. love the confidence of the simple 70s hair and surprisingly short skirt. thanks sartorialist!


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

please girls, look at the grace of her feet/shoes compared to those Somerset Maughm orthopedic torture shoe we so often see on this site.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:49 AM) : 

Great hair and sunglasses too.


Blogger Gerund O'Malley said ... (11:50 AM) : 

I wonder if environment may have played a part in her choices at a subconscious level? (Or any of us for that matter). I love how the colour of the wall behind her is the perfect backdrop for her outfit.

She rested her feet all summer so she can wear her spikes all winter...Perfect idea of what an Italian should look like no?

Clean and natural. Not even paint on her toes.

she's beautiful!


Blogger Ammu said ... (12:57 PM) : 

This is tone on tone chic - so simple but really hard to pull off. She has such gorgeous hair!


Blogger Couture Coco said ... (1:05 PM) : 

The warmth of her smile is irresistible! Her outfit is simple, uncluttered, balanced and comfy.
I love the way you've captured the light on and around her - she looks aglow.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:09 PM) : 

I love that her shirt seems to be some sort of sweatshirt material, but she still looks chic. You can always tell when someone is completely comfortable in what they're wearing.


Blogger Susan said ... (1:17 PM) : 

It is very chic. The tone is soo nice and matches her very well.


Blogger Cari Hislop said ... (1:26 PM) : 

Belissimo...or however its spelled. I love monochromatic dressing only I always end up looking weird or fat...she look awesome! I love how her skin tone is complimented by that wall in the background which goes with the upper part of the bag. Parfait!


Blogger ingefaer said ... (1:35 PM) : 

she is lovely.
Love the sweater and the color combination


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:43 PM) : 

That lighting is absolutely exquisite.


Blogger Loren Barake said ... (1:43 PM) : 

It is the details in deed! I really like everything she's wearing and how casual she looks!


Blogger elegancemaison said ... (1:52 PM) : 

Lovely! Just confirms my view - Milan has the most stylish people. (And captured so well by The Sartorialist of course!)


Blogger Filipe said ... (2:02 PM) : 

She looks stunning


Anonymous greendress said ... (2:06 PM) : 

i really love this. the colors are harmonious and pleasing and it looks as if any woman of any age could wear it, feel comfortable and have confidence that she doesn't look like a tool or a fashion victim.

the woman is beautiful and healthy. and those are the best gladiators i've ever seen.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:08 PM) : 

Thank you Anon for telling us where to get those great sandals! Ubiquitous in Athens, two of the greatest sandal shops are the famous Pantelis Melissinos and Gesouras - Indeed, she looks chic, comfortable and beautiful! -SS, Portland OR


Anonymous AnaPt said ... (2:10 PM) : 

So simple and so pretty! She has such a nice expression too...

Being italian. Wow, what great karma!

Beautiful lighting that reflects her personality in this shot. I like the outfit too, but that bag is what I really want! It looks unique.

sadly i live in vancouver so mine hardly get a chance to enjoy this kind of beautiful sunshine. :(

the light effects are also great. especially on her purse.


Blogger Krysta Marie said ... (2:54 PM) : 

such a great mix, the outfit is amazing. sometimes its the simplicity that makes the look work.

great photo!


Anonymous Stevi Sunshine said ... (2:57 PM) : 

She's precious.. reminds me of Jamie-Lynn Siegler.. also precious! i'm picky about gladiators and these I love! The photo and girl are beautiful!

I think her beauty is much in her SMILE!

Oooh, such a stunner.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:35 PM) : 

Beautiful woman. She's radiant-- literally glowing! You notice her, not what she's wearing, or the bag she's carrying. Timeless.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:38 PM) : 

After the many fashion victims of your former pictures taken in Milan, evviva this simple look!


Blogger Mick "Busyman" Peel said ... (4:39 PM) : 

It heps that she's kind of HOT too.


Anonymous sanmiguelense said ... (4:42 PM) : 

I think that you are absolutely correct on the details, especially the v neck of her sweater. It looks like a man's sweater, they have the best V necks for a woman.


Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (5:28 PM) : 

I totally agree with you, simple outfit, but SO SO chic & effortless...gorgeous!


Blogger Taylor said ... (5:28 PM) : 

An all-around beautiful capture.


Blogger Gigi said ... (5:47 PM) : 

She's caught the secret of simplicity, love it. Truly how I try to create my style, with a few simple pieces that together make out a great total impression.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:48 PM) : 

Actually, I think the beautiful girl is what makes the outfit special!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:49 PM) : 

Wait-what was the comment about Somerset Maugham? He's one of my favorite writers--did he wear torture shoes or something?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:50 PM) : 

I think italians do that best (viz. Scott's remarks). i' m italian and i do nothing but criticizing my land and people etc..i guess you grow out of that...but anyway a little praise goes to this particular ability of being chic by means of very discrete (sartorial) details...


Blogger Margo said ... (6:00 PM) : 

simplicity is the name of the game


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:42 PM) : 

most cute girl ever!

I love the long sleeves and sandals. She pulls off this fall look flawlessly.

It was great meeting you in Dallas!


Blogger Bookworm said ... (6:53 PM) : 

Love the lighting of this makes me miss Italy! I love her burst-of-summer, carefree style...everything just works so perfectly!


Blogger Pret a Porter P said ... (6:57 PM) : 

it's ALL about the hair.


Blogger Pret a Porter P said ... (6:58 PM) : 

to add, if you have great hair, great skin, great smile, everything else just flows. :)

She is so elegant.


Blogger Dis(clothes)ed said ... (8:45 PM) : 

Anyone know who designed those shoes? They look like Miu Mius but I've never seen that style before...


Blogger Carlos Alberto Silva said ... (8:47 PM) : 

This is interesting. She is the first woman I see in dozens of blogs lately that is Not wearing boots but sandals. lol Armani inspired? Maybe. She looks stunning.

she is physically so beautiful, this makes the outfit attractive.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:47 AM) : 

soft,earthy,captured the warm side of Autunm in this photograph. Lovely.


Blogger Susie said ... (6:17 AM) : 

To me this is perfect. So many people that you photograph try to hard to look good. This seems totally unstudied and its so nice.

The colors, the bag, the sandals, her bracelet, sunglasses, hair. All just right.


Blogger Ashley said ... (7:16 AM) : 

I always say this..but I love how you really admire the small details and how they contribute to the outfit as a whole.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:26 AM) : 

Very nice. No cell phone, no cigarette, no stilettos. Perfect!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:02 AM) : 

That's right, ladies and germs. As Leonardo Da Vinci said - Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. She is the kind of lady your mamma would be proud of. Bellissima. Ciao bella.



Blogger Gülben said ... (10:12 AM) : 

i wish she had high heels


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:13 PM) : 

Her clothing is simple and casual but I bet it's all quality stuff. Especially that bag - to die for. Love the neutrals, short skirt under long but not bulky sweater, would love to see the necklace, like the shoes that fade into her feet, and she looks comfortable. Proportions are perfect.


Anonymous Emily said ... (12:45 PM) : 

You're spot-on about the outfit, but my favourite part of the shot is how the light doesn't just hit her, it illuminates her. It catches the chains on her bag and the colours in her hair and kind of wraps her in a glow that you can't get any other way. Perfect.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:53 PM) : 

I love the simplicity in this outfit, and yet it's so stylish. The combination is risky, this kind of shorts with this kind of sandals, but she gets away with it. And how!


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

Scott, you left out the most important part...she is the subtle detail in the outfit as well as the highlight of it all.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:39 PM) : 

the sweater looks just like the one i own from the gap! i believe it's called the boyfriend sweater. i have it in the same color, i'd know it's bagginess anywhere :D

sandals from zara, sweater from the gap . . . this lady is looking very nice for very little!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:47 PM) : 

Yes! This is BEAUTY! Finally a picture of a beautiful women wearing sensible shoes ! Now I know, I am not the only fashionista who refuses to jump on the stiletto, crazy-high- platform bandwagon that seem to be made to make women uncomfortable and possibly break ankles as well.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:48 PM) : 

Ah... to be a golden ray of sunshine and caress her lovely tresses. Or be reincarnated as that bicycle stand.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:36 AM) : 

The bag is a Loewe bag! It's exactly a new version of the Amazona classic by Stuart Vevers. I love it!
Great outfit!

Her bags seems to be an special edition of Loewe's Amazona. My mother has the same bag.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:59 PM) : 

The glasses are a nice accessory to the whole look, they add potential; a nice spark. The gray sweater look makes a charming touch. The necklace and watch are lovely too. The skirt is cute , great fitting and hot what is there left to say?? The shoes are like gladiators very comfy and elegant! Bravo! A+


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:20 AM) : 

Simple yet sophisticated. Nice belnding of neutral colors. Her tan, slender shape doesn't hurt either.
