Here is a stylish lady walking down the tiled street, she was snapped by The Sartorialist because of her impeccable taste and I fell in love with her street-cred so much that I decided to analyse her sophisticated look. My guess is that she’s European, probably on her way to a fashion show…
She is one who dresses for herself, not to please others. I admire her both her boldness and her ability to streamline her look with vastly different designer pieces. She’s mixed the ‘too-cool-for-school’ rebellious look with polished tailored pieces to perfection.
She starts with a black shirt in light-weight material. I have selected a black D&G Dolce & Gabbana bow-detail chiffon blouse
Then she slides into Sass & Bide Black Rats leggings- and colour and the ruched detailing is very slimming.
Next, her wardrobe staple- the black blazer. I have chosen Balmain, of course. Needless to say, this black wool blazer is the hottest blazer you could have- first-class tailoring with those eponymous shoulder ‘hills’. Although it have an astronomical price tag, it is already sold-out on Net-A-Porter. An investment piece that will last and last.
Next, she thoughtfully chooses her accessories. She wants something edgy with heaps of street-cred. She wants to fit her make-up, agenda, sunnies, camera, wallet and other important belongings into a well-sized tote.
I thought her bag appeared familiar, I found silver and patent blue versions on net-a-porter- the Pauric Sweeney Perforated Bag and the Pauric Sweeney Overnight 7 Patent Bag- both on sale now at Net-A-Porter.com. If only the prices were not in pounds…
She then wraps her neck in her favourite and the celeb-favourite Louis Vuitton Stephen Sprouse Leopard Scarf. The violet shade adds just the right amount of colour to her dark ensemble.
She almost look like she is weaing very long boots…however if you take a closer look you will see some wicked ankle boots. My shortlist would be Alexander Mcqueen or Louboutins…so I’ve included both! Christian Louboutin Miss 120 Platform Ankle Boots and the Alexander Mcqueen peet-toe ankle boots which are to die for. These ‘vest-like’ peep-toe booties are made with butter-soft leather with skull-zippers. I love the ‘lappeles’ and the heel detailing.
So here we are, the complete breakdown of a great outfit. Style can be learned, but it helps when you have great anatomy too.
