I feel so lucky I caught this woman at that particular moment. She looks like a transplant from a movie scene whereby this wonderfully chic woman from the city is waiting on an outdoor train platform. She has either stepped off a train (the old kind with lots of smoke) or is waiting to board, alone and very much to herself.
There’s just too much to admire about her style. I simply adore how she wears her coat off the shoulders. The brown silk polkadot shirt tucked underneath slightly worn flare jeans, i’m so in love and in desperate need to imitate this look! During New York Fashion week, where this photo was taken, I noticed a good deal women wearing flare jeans, including Emmanuelle Alt (and here is a same day photo of Emmanuelle taken by the Sartorialist).
I always preach that one of the marvels of street style is the ability to discover how people shape fashion for themselves. It’s in the details, I always say. This woman’s main details, among others, are her off the shoulder coat and the lovely scarf she’s got wrapped around her bag. Her hair is somewhat sloppily tied up and she’s not wearing any make-up or excessive jewellery, yet with a few simple style choices that’s how easy it is for her to look so damn chic.
