this is very interesting. "they" (whoever "they" are) say denim on denim is such a no-no, but i think she carries it well. there's a sort of elegance to her.

The hat really adds something to the look. Loving her daringness to pair two different denims together!

She looks a bit like Caroline Sieber, too.

Hey guys,
please please tell me where to find such a shirt!!!
Thanks!

She looks very french to me - with an american twist. Like her shoes, reminds me of dancing shoes - only in black.

Very cute weekend look, overall. I love the hat and the boots. Not so crazy about the baggy jeans, though.

oh i love this outfit! boyfriend jeans with a demin chemise top....lace booties. love it love it!

 

Blogger Rachael said ... (1:04 PM) : 

I love this look. To me, it takes confidence to pull this off, yet, she looks so meek at the same time. The hat is great!

we call this a canadian tuxedo

 

Blogger jane said ... (1:10 PM) : 

love it! the boots are brilliant!

 

Blogger katrina d. said ... (1:12 PM) : 

Yes! I *knew* the Canadian tuxedo would return to the top of the fashion pyramid one day. (The denim blazer makes it an official three-piece ensemble.)

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:14 PM) : 

The boots are fantastic, and, with the hat, they elevate the denim into style -mode. Love this.

Ok. I'm off to hit the thrift store now for some comfortable baggy jeans.

boyfriend jeans is a trend i can't follow...

Your photographs always amaze me! I love the way her clothing "matches" her posture; the outfit - though unusual - seems so natural on her. And that is what true fashion is about...

Surprisingly, I like this look, though I doubt I could pull it off?
I would probably do a silk print shirt, something rich in color.

 

Anonymous Kathleen said ... (1:55 PM) : 

Truly loving this look at the moment.
Very gold-miner... in a chic manner.

 

Blogger Wanderlusting said ... (1:56 PM) : 

Not a fan of this look to be honest. A bit too 90's for my taste (denim on denim?) but this woman still manages to pull it off, especially with those boots. The faded colours really suit the light and atmosphere in this shot, too.

 

Blogger Duo said ... (1:56 PM) : 

She looks cooold without her jacket on. She looks good too, so I guess it's a worthwhile tradoff ;)

 

Blogger indigo warrior said ... (1:58 PM) : 

I like this. It's almost an Annie-Hall-is-going-to-go-work-in-the-garden kind of look. Except she won't because she'd get dirty. Maybe if she found the right gloves?

Horrorshow. She could look good in a burlap sack. This is worse than a burlap sack.

 

Blogger Hadley Gets Crafty said ... (2:47 PM) : 

Oh, she's cold! No doubt, she gamely took off her coat so you could capture her outfit! As any sane person would....

She looks adorable, in a very 1970s Diane Keaton kind of way. I especially love her hat.

Thats a Chambray workwear shirt from J. Crew. Chambray is not denim. She Isn't wearing denim on denim. This look is great. I wear a vintage Japanese chambray workwear shirt with diesel jeans often. I just break up the color with a suiting vest and a worn leather Varvatos belt.

The photo is so poetic and the subject so beautiful - would we care so much about what she is wearing if the photo wasn't on a blog about clothes? As it happens what she is wearing is great - long live jeans and boots! Thank you Scott for a lovely image.

 

Anonymous Rachel said ... (10:01 PM) : 

Individually I don't like any of the items she's wearing, with the exception (maybe) of the hat.

But together on her it looks so great! I can't say what it is...

If I walked past her in the street she would turn my head - and I'm female!

 

Anonymous The Burlap Smack said ... (10:03 PM) : 

I don't know...I think it's just the fact that she's so gorgeous that lets her pull it off, cuz I really dont feel the denim on denim here...

she reminds me of blossom! love it.

 

Blogger Metro Style said ... (10:31 PM) : 

This is a great photo and her clothes work for it - but I don't think she'd look equally great at all angles. Jeans too baggy and shirt too sloppy.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:37 PM) :

we haven't seen each other in a long time so i'm not sure.

 

Blogger Ashley said ... (10:59 PM) : 

Honestly, I hate it. I think it looks too 90's. Its best to take certain inspirations from past decades, but not many things especially when incorporating them into one outfit. There is too much with the light denim button up to the faded medium wash jeans. Its too much. She's pretty though and I like her hat! XOXO

Blogger sallymandy said ... (1:59 AM) : 

I think it would work better if either the shirt or the pants were less baggy. Two baggies can look sloppy. Nice to see something this casual in NYC.

 

Anonymous Debarge said ... (2:15 AM) : 

sorry for my negativity (i just cant believe how many of you really like this outfit), but i had to say i don't like it. i just dont get why people roll their jeans up in that unflattering way. someone tell me why!?
but i do like the hat =D.
ps. can someone get her an umbrella!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:29 AM) : 

Blossom?

 

Blogger jbf said ... (3:26 AM) : 

i completely agree with this amy grant, blossom style. it's so interesting because the aesthetic of the 90s seemed so un-pleasing at the time, and i've always wondered how long it would take for this style to become relevant or new again. growing up (in the 90s) i always thought such a style was frumpy -- flowy, undefining flower dresses...big bowly hats with pins on them, jeans everything with a flannel sweatshirt tied around the waist. it's like anti-body con, which also seemed pretty big at the time. surprise! barely 10 years ago and it's already chic again. i don't know, she wears this with an irony that makes me think she is not american, or maybe she is but that's just the way to wear such a recycled look. in any case, i actually think she looks really nice, except i don't really get why the jeans are rolled up. this look is definitely nostalgic for the 90s, but with those jeans, she just seems SO current in a kind of cheap way. and the victorian-esque laceups, i don't think they are appropriate. they just cut off her legs even more. but i think she is really chic.

 

Blogger Elizabeth said ... (4:22 AM) : 

It's not the outfit, which is interesting... at best. It's the girl, she makes it work. But the poor thing is cold! (A small price to pay to be featured on The Sartorialist, no? :)

Has it been raining, Scott?

Lovely atmosphere!

 

Blogger J.A.F. said ... (9:51 AM) : 

This makes me think of the 80's for some reason. I did window display for a small store in a small town in Kentucky but I just remember tons of faded denim and chambray and boots...a bit nostalgic for me. She needs a silver lame bag and some juju beads.

 

Blogger VirginiaWestfield said ... (12:07 PM) : 

Amy grant... hilarious!
For what it is, it is done well.
I have some deep personal regrets about the oversize, long-rise "boyfriend" jeans I wore back in the day. I'm guessing this girl isn't old enough to have lived it before...

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:16 PM) : 

for me she looks like a farmer lost in the city

 

Blogger Stephanie said ... (12:41 PM) : 

So 80s...she wears it very well. Usually the all-denim look is not appealing, but I'm liking this, the more I look at it.

 

Blogger Morgan said ... (2:18 PM) : 

is this sophia coppola?

 

Blogger Killer B said ... (2:28 PM) : 

I'm not crazy about the pure denim as it looks a little frumpy, but your photography is incredible.

 

Blogger pretty kitty publishing said ... (2:43 PM) : 

This look is about the gently worn-in collar. I just love the delicate v-neck it makes and the roll of the sleeves and the pants legs, too. The boots are ultra cool. In fact, the accessories, the fedora, the bag, pull it all together.

 

Blogger Martha Lecoq said ... (3:03 PM) : 

simply style, she looks really good

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:45 PM) : 

I simply adore this lady and her outfit. Here is proof that one need not arbitrarily follow fashion "rules" in order to look good. A little creativity and a long look at yourself in a mirror tells you whether or not you can pull off denim pieces together.

 

Anonymous Sondra said ... (6:29 PM) : 

I remember dressing like this long ago... when I was in high school and before the "denim on denim" look became uncool. For the next 30 years I wouldn't be caught dead in this kind of outfit. I now, I can't believe that I'm loving it! It doesn't mean that I'll try it again myself, but she looks great.

I think what makes it work is the bagginess of the boyfriend jeans, the nice texture of the shirt and the play on colors and shades.

 

Blogger Fashionista said ... (7:23 PM) : 

too much denim
she looks like she should be in the country or someting.
def not something id wanna try

 

Anonymous elisabetty said ... (7:50 PM) : 

never mind the no-nos about denim with denim...this is exactly the kind of look i love to see. she put it all together perfectly - stylishness without stuffiness. relaxed without being lazy. this is a look to which i aspire.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:35 AM) : 

i think the feel of boyfriend jeans can be enough. it may not elongate you, but it may give you a swing to your hips or a different way of carrying yourself (for the better)

Normally I'm not a fan of that sort of look, particularly the rolled jeans, but she definitely makes it work.

 

Blogger stylethread said ... (10:53 AM) : 

I purchased a men's denim shirt like that in the 80's, and I donated recently because I thought for sure I would never wear it again.

I have those boots, similar jeans, fedora, and cross body bag... I kinda like it. hmmm I'm feeling like it needs a scarf as a belt for the jeans because the large field of denim needs to be broken up, IMO.

also looks like a collision between Annie Hall and Katie Holmes.

she looks amazing. she wears this so well i forgot i ever had a rule about no competing denims!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:04 PM) : 

Ahem. Technically, she's wearing denim with chambray. It takes a Canadian who went to high school in the 70s to be in the know on this one.

Very definitely, Anonymous.

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:09 PM) : 

Proof positive that it's not always the clothes, per se, that make the look. This works for her, so who cares about denim on denim?

 

Blogger Chrissy Johnson said ... (12:47 PM) : 

Hat, boots, jeans are very cute. I am getting a very 1992 working at Blockbuster vibe from the shirt. If this girl can make the "Blossom" look work, she's got style coming out of her pores, though!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:01 PM) : 

This is one of those looks where everything--from the red lips to the granny boots--all of it, I would never wear; none of it; but that I love in its entirety and combination on HER. But probably only her.

One of those looks that I can't take anything from personally other than the reminder that there is so much out there that can look good and yet will never be "my" style.

 

Anonymous Hinna said ... (1:24 PM) : 

Wonderful. It's very easy to go wrong with an outfit with pieces of varying proportions like this, especially with denim. But she pulls it off with casual ease. Bravo!

wow.... i always thought that denim on denim was the biggest fashion faux pas of all (having always been lectured on the dangers of it) but she looks so...cool, and effortlessly so (how annoying)

The piling of denim to denim and looking to fashionable. Wonderful.

Denim on Denim ALWAYS looked good! You have all listened to the Fashion Machine.

I too love this look...but I especially love how everyone here cannot get over how she is wearing Denim & Denim.

Denim on Denim was ok to do all through the centuries ...since denim was invented.

Think San francisco Gold miners, what did they wear???

Think of the men who built the Empire State Building and all the bridges across the Unted States in the Depression era.

Think...is there anyone who portrayed a sexy ruggedness better than James Dean?

Think the 60's... Think Woodstock ..who didn't wear Levi's and a "workshirt"? It was the anthem of youthful exhuberance and it didn't go away all through the 70's. What did changes was the shape and style of the jeans.

In the 70's when "Designer Jeans" came out (which were Sergio Valente and Gloria Vanderbilt and Jordache in those days) It WAS STILL ok ito wear Jeans with a denim vest to match!

And all through the 80's and 90's it was ok to wear jeans that were acid washed prewashed or stonewashed with denim halters or midriffs or even loosely knitted or croceted denim sweaters and denim boots or pumps!

The United States was actually built on this look and whether it was tried and true faded & frayed or acid washed it used to be ok to do this.

Until ....some "Fashion Expert" in the New Millennium declared this a faux pas. And then everyone declared "Oh my I am breaking the rules". and stopped doing it!

Mean while everyone here is admiring, how good it looks and for a reason!

Because it has always been a great look.
I resented that BS "Fashion Faux Pas" crap!!!!

Fashion truly dictates! That's how they get people to follow along like lambs and buy what they are pumping out every season!

Love & Light,

Tee

I don't get why so many are dreading the double denim.

look at how many recent editorials are pushing the look:http://andeverythingandnothing.blogspot.com/2010/02/denim-on-denim-part-deux.html

and it was a staple for many in the music scene in the 60s and 70s. See my post, Denim on Denim, the third: looking back. http://andeverythingandnothing.blogspot.com/2010/02/denim-on-denim-third-looking-back.html

This denim on denim could have been trashy cowgirl, but it works perfectly. The two tones balanced with a fedora and killer heels set off by the extra pop of lipstick creates a whole new look.
