Black Tunic in the Mountains

The mountains are absolutely stunning..and so is the girl in her simple black tunic, jeans, grey flat shoes, and black scarf that drapes loosely to show off a tall blond hairstyle! The pose is very effortless and comfortable and perfect for manteau style (since some haters may consider it inappropriate, I advise everyone to do more poses like this when wearing this style!).


The Smog Masks Are Back…

..unfortunately! However, the two outfits are nice, especially the one on the left (the one on the right is somewhat obscured by the big scarf, but it looks like a more generic “black manteau + jeans” one). The one on the left has some pretty awesome features, including the Fair Isle-style patterned hoodie over the black manteau (somewhat unsightly, perhaps, but so warm for this time of year!), the rouched bag, and the black snood pushed back by a wise leopard print hair ribbon. I have a leopard print ribbon myself since it’s my favorite pattern, and I have done this look, creating multiple layers of snoods, hoods, and hair ribbons (I have gone up to 3) while still letting hair show at the front…looks pretty cool!


Beige Dress Manteau at Carpet Expo

Because of the angle of the photo, you can’t see the carpet samples that the girl is photographing with her cell phone…but you can see the nice beige dress manteau (one-piece), jeans, and pushed back black snood. The outfit is simple but nice.


Fall Park Fun

Fun in the park in the fall can be had in many ways..for example, running on the beautiful paths covered with golden leaves, like this couple is doing, while wearing a cool outfit involving a denim trench coat over a black manteau and purple scarf….


..or for a modern twist, it may involve taking a selfie with a statue (while wearing an awesome turquoise velvet jacket over a black coat)!


Black Manteau and Yellow Paisley Scarf on the Sea Shore

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!


Four Student Outfits With Jackets

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!

Yellow Long Open Cardigan

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!


Grey Balloon Sleeve Coat With Yellow Chain Print Scarf

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).


Four Glamorous Styles

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.

Smog Masks and Student Outfits

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.
