What’s not to love about this picture? I adore the XXXL fit of the jeans, super-crunchy, stiff denim with not an ounce of stretch and the paperbag-like cinched waist. And the abbreviated proportions of the silky top (loose but well-fitting on the shoulders). The boots didn’t go down well on The Sartorialist but I actually think they bring the outfit into the 21st century. My bugbear is they’re fighting with the hem of the jeans, so if they were just an inch shorter (the boots not the jeans), the look would be more harmonious. But the overall effect of the outfit with the beautiful curls and retro red lip is nothing short of wonderful. What do you think?
