Spied on the Street: Black & White Fall

Persons of Interest, Street Style  /   /  By Nina Louie

Any minute now the autumn chill is going to set in. This is probably the last week we’ll be able to wear something like this—layered up but sexy—showing so much skin. But one thing we like about this combo is that it’s easy to update for cooler climes. Jean shorts with a chiffon shirt and a boxy blazer can easily turn on the addition of full-length jeans and a coat. The look will still be sexy if the jeans are skinny. Ankle boots with heels, bright red lipstick, and a fetching topknot won’t hurt either!

    Complex in juxtaposition with simplicity… The colors are simple, the shapes and angles are anything but… So walking hot (like streets on a summer day) looks like walking cool (as in the clever airflow).

    This would turn my head, on the subway or street… I’d just hope to have a closeup look to ask how these pieces were all found and assembled, how long it took and what started the look? Just please don’t say it was all about the bag! I’m hoping it was the blue lined vented front, lord knows we need more draperies in motion!

    @CJones, we share your sense of awe, thank you for marveling with us. When we stopped this young lady for a photograph, she told us she was a vintage clothing store owner, and that she was in the midst of a long cross-country trip in search of beautiful and interesting finds. For someone like that, it’s definitely about much more than the bag. It’s about the colors, shapes, textures, silhouettes, and attitudes that move her. We saw her again the next day, and she looked totally different. She was so utterly transformed by what she was wearing, that we barely recognized her. Definitely someone with a rich and interesting relationship to clothes. Thank you for noticing.
