Loving the trousers. Reminds me of band uniforms from highschool.


Blogger franca maisha said ... (9:22 AM) : 

those pants are amazing!

She is fantastic. The whole look - especially the hat - works for me.

This is brilliant. Very eclectic, and yet it all comes together nicely.

"Spectators?" interesting choice of shoes....smiles.


Anonymous Bonnie said ... (9:33 AM) : 

I don't like much dark colors in the sun.
The mix with the pastel top is a bit weird, but it works on her.
I love the hat. I always wear a Panama hat when it's sunny. It's a style that's ok with pants, unlike other kinds of straw hats.


Blogger pinky said ... (9:39 AM) : 

i have those same band uniform pants, color and all---got em at a Goodwiil Store. hahaha they look great!
yeah, baby, 2 3 4 !

I love that hat and grey tee! Her pose reminds me of Michael Jackson in the Smooth Criminal video! :D


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:41 AM) : 

In my opinion, it is hard to find harmony in that look. Thought the hat is nice, clean and clear a summer must.


Anonymous jesuisunprince said ... (9:41 AM) : 

Wow, brave but nice outfit!
I love it! :-)

NOw in days it's so hard to capture a fabulous trend setter on camera !


Blogger Style Realist said ... (9:53 AM) : 

absolutely adore this outfit! from the easy breeziness of the cardi to the athletic casual vibe of the pants...nice!


Blogger saradowle said ... (9:58 AM) : 

So cool, with understated confidence


Blogger The Sluice Box said ... (10:09 AM) : 

It's an improbable combination of pieces, but they somehow work for what must be a hot summer day.

WOW. Jen, my all-time favorite Sartorialist muse! She was interviewed not too long ago on the Domahoka blog:

Super interesting read!

WOW!! That girl is great :)

What a mess.


Blogger katatak said ... (10:24 AM) : 

She looks great!

I'm pretty sure that's a Maya Neumann hat from the hat shop in Soho.


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:35 AM) : 

She's wearing several pieces from J. Crew. I love it.


Anonymous Best of Beehive said ... (10:35 AM) : 

I wonder if those pants came from Goodwill. They have to be from a marching band. More power to her for reping them.

girls in hats loook so cute

come follow the first ever fashion blog from a Guys POV, let He know what you think


Anonymous Johnny the mule said ... (10:46 AM) : 

It's a messy"I just got out of bed and threw something on" look, but she makes it work with the hat somehow.

I love her face! She's beautiful :)

she is gorgeous! her look...the pant is amazing


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:08 AM) : 

What is that in her hand? An iron, a defibrillator? You have to have a lot of personality and confidence to wear that kind of diversity with style and pizazz. I'm not sure it completely works. It just looks a bit too eccentric.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:12 AM) : 

I love the simplicity of this outfit, yet it has a lot of character.


Anonymous ポストコーディネート said ... (11:12 AM) : 

She looks natulally.
Hut and cardigan・・・all items are good ventilation.

It's refreshing!

Love her Panama hat and her pose...


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:22 AM) : 

Fab outfit. I love the casual look with the crumbled vest and the grey heather top in its simplicity. The pants are perfect match to the general outfit.


Anonymous David said ... (11:43 AM) : 

I simply don't understand someone needing attention by putting together an unfathomable ensemble. The worst of this are the comments from other readers. I don't believe she put thought into this mess. It doesn't "work," as many have stated.


Anonymous Rhi said ... (11:45 AM) : 

I think if the trousers were black it would become much classier, although more European. But the silhouette comes together well. Great photo though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:52 AM) : 

Beautiful girl (great pose too), great summer hat, but the light voluminous neutrals on top with the dark graphic pants and shoes just does not work. I love eclectic style, but this is just totally out of balance.


Blogger Sonsira said ... (11:53 AM) : 

not sure about this one...


Anonymous ALEXIS said ... (11:55 AM) : 

I like this look!

You seem so sure David. then why exactly doen't it work?
Do you have a formula?

Blogger Unknown said ... (12:35 PM) : 

This image is perfect. She looks relaxed, happy and effortlessly stylish. I would do bad things to get my hands on that tank top and those pumps! This may well be the first and last time I ever say this, but I actually LIKE her sweat-pant style trousers. They work well with this look. X


Blogger T said ... (12:39 PM) : 

Oh that gauzy caridgan is perfection!


Blogger Peach City Style said ... (12:41 PM) : 

This looks like such an "easy breezy" the weather was perfect that day! Love the hat ;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:48 PM) : 

The pants are indeed the US Army dress blue pants... also now called the Army Service Uniform.


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

Love the site! You make fashion accessible to everyone. Wish I would see more publications run images like these. You don't always need over the top photo shoots. So refreshing. I direct my 14 year old daughter here instead of the 14 year old going on 40 fashionista. Cheers.



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

This shot is awesome. This woman is so exotic and foreign yet still so new york. She is a rare siting. You make this seem like hunting.

in that respect, when is mating season?


Blogger The Styleograph said ... (1:10 PM) : 

The wind makes this pic so special. great!!!


Anonymous audrey said ... (1:18 PM) : 

I like the light. I love her expression and her posture, how she carries herself. She looks at ease.

When I take notice of what she's actually wearing, I wonder if it's Laundry Day. (Hipsters! I know.) But she's pretty, and she's posing as though she were dressed for a wedding. It makes for a really arresting, inspiring shot.


Blogger Tarah Zdunic said ... (1:21 PM) : 

very eclectic!


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:28 PM) : 

I truly love this look.

Beautiful picture.

this look is great!


Blogger tintin said ... (2:33 PM) : 

When I was in high school I wore my dad's army dress pants to high school. He would've killed me if he had known so I snuck 'em outta the house by wearing a pair of jeans over them. I had no idea I was so cutting edge.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:36 PM) : 

This picture is a good reflection on why classic lines and style always works while being trendy just looks pretentious. She clearly know how to pose well and she is is physically attractive but there are so many things off about her outfit, the bagginess of the shirt that is then tucked in. the clashes is all the wrong ways of the colours. The only keepers are the hat and the cardigan she has on.


Blogger Unknown said ... (2:39 PM) : 

Nice movement...!

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

Thank you for giving those of us sweltering in NYC something that looks a little cool! She's like a sail in the wind.

P.S. I also like it that she doesn't seem to be wearing a bra. As a woman, I can attest that getting rid of that one layer--usually made of nylon, poly, and other not terribly cool fabrics--can feel so good on a hot day.


Blogger MY REPUBLIC OF FASHION said ... (2:43 PM) : 

Great photos, love her trousers.SarahD:)


Blogger Zuzia said ... (2:46 PM) : 

love her pants. she look beautiful!


Blogger choppie said ... (3:06 PM) : 

The pants seem a little too pretencious to me. But somehow everything on her worked together and made a unique style of her own.
Maybe the gray unpretenciou T-shirt balanced the pants.


Blogger The DuniaBeast said ... (3:29 PM) : 

The pants have to be from a band uniform. haha I know from experience :]but I have to say it's a very eclectic look. The bottom half is harsh and the top soft. Nonetheless, It's very humorous and well put together. I want that hat!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:32 PM) : 

I now know who stole my hat.

BTW, are the trousers from a drum major or a security guard?


Blogger Maria João de Perestrello said ... (3:35 PM) : 

woowww amazing!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:40 PM) : 

We've seen her on your blog before, no? She seems like a highly creative soul with a strong connection to the past whose style is inspired more by memories and aesthetics and art than by runways or magazines. I adore her approach to dressing.



Anonymous Mars said ... (3:40 PM) : 

Not a lot of people can pull off this look. For some reason, the way she carries the ensemble makes it work.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:41 PM) : 

God I lover her, she always looks so great. I love all many styles.

Blogger Lisa Petrarca said ... (3:54 PM) : 

This is not a very flattering outfit for her. Maybe it's the gray top that's throwing the whole thing off for me.


Blogger menina raposa said ... (4:07 PM) : 

love her style :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:08 PM) : 

In some ways this is anti-fashion, the pants with the stripe, the crumpled jacket together, when one is formal band wear and the other is cruise wear. The tee doesn't seem to fit into the whole thing at all, and yet... She doesn't dress formulaically at all, but she does stand out as well dressed. Everyone is saying how much they adore this look but I don't. I would have preferred loose grey pants with this, but then, how would she have worn the gold jacket with it?


Blogger Emmi said ... (4:08 PM) : 

oh,I really like this outfit,particulierement the trousers are awesome with the gold detail.


Blogger Oana Roxana said ... (4:14 PM) : 

That look in her eyes calms me down.Sometimes clothes mean nothing.Beautiful lady.

me gusta que los elementos funcionen igual de bien juntos que por separado. Me lo pondría para un desayuno un domingo!!!


Blogger Miiicha said ... (4:41 PM) : 

OMG cool style, I love the pants!


Blogger Cynthia said ... (4:53 PM) : 

Just bought that hat, or one very similar to it, at Edie Hats in Vancouver to cover my post-chemo hair. So this is a nice surprise! Can't beat a classic Panama. And my guess is, she doesn't much care if some of us don't like her outfit. :-)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:00 PM) : 

It brings back memories of my daughter dressing herself at four yoa. Her favorite was her tutu with Poo Bear boots, and a faux fur vest.


Anonymous anna said ... (5:06 PM) : 

ah perfect,

i feel inspired!


Anonymous caitlin said ... (5:08 PM) : 

i think the possibility that she put very little thought into this outfit makes it that much more appealing, and perhaps most of the reason why it "works."


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:17 PM) : 

Her shoes. I love them.

I'm a bit over fedoras (i'm just jealous 'cause my heads shape can't take any hats) and the pants are a bit heavy for that fresh summer vibe, i like the colour i would have just done maybe a lighter fabric, something that moved like the blouse

I rather detest this look. Each piece is competing, with no cohesion as a whole, even her stance is competing with the clothes.

I love her combined style look. Her shoes look so like Jackie O. but without completely becoming a copy of the icon, she makes the look her own. It is wonderful.

Such confidence! I love the movement in this shot with the fabric from her sweater blowing in the wind and the fabric of her pants. Is she posing or keeping her hat from blowing away?! Very fun shot! I wish I knew what book she is reading! I would love to spend a day in that outfit, looks like something I could have confidence in too, but be free and relaxed at the same time!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:29 PM) : 

she has a great presence, but it's a little all over the place- in a bad way. if you cropped her head off and ignored the cardigan and flats, it looks like something you would wear while lying on the couch vegging out to the television.


Blogger JSHayes said ... (7:18 PM) : 

I feel that this photo really is a prime example of why Europeans berate our style sense here in America. The heavy thrift-store marching band pants paired with much lighter materials on top and the straw hat... it is kind of a serious mess. And the shoes would look so beautiful with a pretty skirt -- every piece seems to be fighting to stand out more.. and seriously detract from her very pretty face.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:55 AM) : 

Interesting here how the textiles have become simple accidents (in the Latin sense of the word) expressing that young woman's relaxed mood & self conscious personality. Pointless to talk about brands or matching colors here.
What a wonderful moment, what a beautiful mood. Makes my European appreciation of NYC even greater.

Ack! How cool to see some military dress blue pants tailored perfectly for a woman... I'm very used to only seeing my husband in such pants. This shot instantly made me go "a-ha! awesome!"... maybe I will have to steal a pair of his dress blue pants that no longer fit & make them my own ;)

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

This works on her, in fact looks fabulous on her. I will never understand fashion. But in my lack of understanding, I am becoming more and more certain that an outfit being good or bad is because of the wearer, not the outfit itself.
