The outfit may be simple (black coat, jeans, and sneakers), but the beautiful Caspian resort background and the beautiful yellow silk paisley scarf (I have a scarf like this but in blue) make it memorable!
Oh yes….this is what I like to call a great look for the winter. These basic student outfits (black manteau, jeans, sneakers, and a pushed back black snood) are combined with jackets of various length, from a short black jacket to a thigh-length white parka with a furry hood to a knee-length brown plaid trench coat. It may look a little bit ridiculous with one coat showing from underneath another one, but you can’t deny that it is warm- I know because I do this in the winter/fall all the time. :-)
P.S. That tile work behind the girls is simply amazing!
How bad-ass is this? This yellow cardigan is a little too long to be called a “waterfall”, but the front is a bit longer than the back, and it is open to show off beautifully form-fitting black leggings! The sleeves are also regulated by straps, which is typically a feature of conventional tunic manteaus, but it’s awesome to see it on a cardigan as well. Also awesome – the beautifully draped scarf which looks to be made of two halves -a grey one and a bright ikat print one, the red nail polish and heavy make-up, and the lovely Caspian resort-style mansion behind the girl!
I really like this outfit because it’s rare to see the balloon sleeves on manteaus….this grey coat does have them though. The yellow scarf with some blue details looks like a chain print one but may have some ikat-like patterns as well. The strangest thing about this photo is that this girl looks a little bit like my sister-in-law- at least, the hair and the eye shape are similar (my sister-in-law has never had a nose job, however).
I love these group photos- they are very popular in Support Love, for example. Many of these have numbers because the posters of these photos will ask people whom they consider the most beautiful, and they have to state the number of the girl. This is one such photo, and before I express which outfit I consider the MOST beautiful (which is tough because, let’s face it, I love them all!), I will say that this is the first time I have seen so much tanning (hopefully, spray-on!) in one photo.
Now, let’s see- we’ve got…
1) Brown short tunic over black longer tunic, black leggings, awesome brown open-toe platform sandals, and brown scarf (possibly with a flower and diamond pattern) draped around long blond hair..and of course heavy “Northern style” make-up!…
2) Yellow manteau with sleeves above the elbow (like my own yellow tunic!) and leopard edging, black leggings and flats, and a black silk scarf tied very low so that long black hair can flow…
3) Black waterfall cardigan with a colorful silk scarf covering most of the top underneath (yet still exposing long black hair), bright green leggings, and studded white gladiator sandals…
4) Another waterfall or asymmetric hem white manteau with black flower print, jeans, loafers, and black scarf pushed far back.
What would you prefer?
P.S. My personal favorite outfit is…………………………#3! I think it is the most inventive and memorable of the 4, and it is very much my style (with the scarf tied low and worn around the shoulders!). Outfit #2 comes a close 2nd for the same reason.
I don’t like seeing smog masks on this blog, since they are worn to protect against very polluted air…but at least, they are often paired with nice styles. The two styles below look like typical student outfits, especially the black sweater coat, jeans, sneakers (in funky purple with blue laces, no less), and pushed back snood…and to make it super-modern, a tablet with earphones!
This outfit involves a grey manteau with some buttons and a heavy black jacket over it, as well as a snood framing a nice hairstyle….and a smog mask, as well…wish I could see the whole outfit.
It’s rare that I see good outfits from this particular expo (concerned with newspapers/magazines mostly), but this year, things are very different…lots of great manteaus abound! The classic olive military coat below is decorated with a lively black and white scarf covered with flowers and diamonds (and the black pushed back snood, which is another classic, of course).
The burgundy (or wine, or oxblood..whichever you prefer) coat below is beautiful- it’s made of shiny satin material. Such manteaus are quite rare, and I think this kind of fabric suits them well, as it is formal and stretchy to fit the body better.
The dreaded selfie has made it to this expo as well! :-) The outfit is pretty cool though- the dark green manteau has two rows of big brass buttons and bright green polka dot cuffs asnd amtchexd the green patterned scarf, while the girl’s companion wears a shirt with a plaid Burberry-print collar.
You know winter is coming when you see the “big jacket over manteau” combination- the jacket here is bright blue while the manteau is navy blue.
I am really loving this orange sweater coat with a ruffled asymmetric hem- it’s gorgeous, and the color fits this girl’s skin ton so well. Her long black braid flows from underneath the black snood, while her black pants are cut above the ankle to show a bit of leg while she’s sitting down-looks awesome!
Let’s keep giving manteau haters some more awesome styles to froth about, shall we? The fluffy white kitty is living the life on a gorgeous Kish Island beach, along with two girls rocking awesome coats – one bright red and the other burgundy, both worn with decorative scarves (one brown and white with some pink leopard print and one beige with beautiful silver circle sequins hanging off the edges) showing off gorgeous black and blond hair (the latter in a long braid!)…and there may even be colorful leggings on the part of the blond girl! This is the life- you gotta love it…
