Purple Vest and Plaid Skirt and a Red Printed Manteau

This year has been phenomenal so far for coats with skirts- I have SO many photos of these outfits, and it’s only April! The purple vest worn with a plaid pink+purple_green+yellow+brown skirt is absolutely stunning…as is the red printed coat worn open with black pants (cut off above the ankles). I love the subtle pops of green in both outfits too.

Purple Scarf by Bookstore Window

The outfit is all black and quite forgettable – it’s the purple knit scarf that makes it memorable, plus the girl is wearing a smog mask that has been lowered. She is looking into a window of one of the famous downtown Tehran bookstores, and I wonder what book interests her…

The Snowy Outfits Begin…

Snowy winters bring cool manteau style combinations…such as this black coat with a white furry collar, which is worn with a nice purple scarf.

This classic outfit features a black leather coat and gloves, jeans tucked into tall brown boots, and…

..a fully open red and yellow zigzag print scarf (as well as stunning and subtle make-up!)…and what would a snowy or rainy day set be without the umbrella man statue?

First Set from the Media Expo

In the last couple of years, this expo has yielded lots of awesome styles…this year is continuing the tradition…in fact, the first photo in the set is not even from the expo itself but from the set-up of the displays the day before (!!!), which is another first..fittingly enough, it’s a lilac coat worn with an open purple flower-printed scarf, through which long blond hair flows beautifully…

On to the expo itself…it seems that grey coats are very popular at this expo. See for yourself! First, here is a grey sweater coat with a smiley face t-shirt underneath…

Then here comes the classic grey manteau with black pockets and cuffs and a pushed-back black snood…

…and finally a grey one-button-closure coat, also worn with a pushed-back black snood.

And for a change, here is a relative rarity – a cape-style manteau in beige (only the 3rd one I have seen so far) worn with a black long-sleeve top underneath and a flower-printed scarf draped to show red hair. I hope the baby is having fun at the expo!

The Mega Book Fair Set – Part III

Now, it is time to continue the book fair photos…next to a creepy bandaged skeleton statue (I suppose this continues the “expo statue” tradition) is a lovely woman in a beige manteau with ribbed panels and beige printed silk scarf tied low to show off red hair.

Another patterned silk scarf tied low is worn with a black coat unbuttoned to show a blue flower-printed top underneath.

This manteau looks like a throwback to those designer coats from 2011 or so that can be found in the Aida Rahimi or Deja Vu categories. The paisley panels and cuffs are straight from that era. The rest of the outfit is, surprisingly, all beige.

Finally, a purple coat and green scarf- amazing! That hits all of the major rebellious colors in one outfit.

Getting Creative – 1st Edition

I have never heard of this event before, but here is the website for it…it is called Creative Mornings, and it is a worldwide phenomenon involving a breakfast and a talk on a creative subject! So far, there have been 2 of these in North Tehran, and these are a few outfits from the first one. As you would expect, the outfits are highly creative…just check out that denim sleeveless manteau over a yellow long-sleeve top with a lovely green scarf  showing off auburn hair and that amazing make-up! There’s also a faded green coat with  an olive green scarf that looks pretty cool….

…as well as this outfit, involving a purple jacket over a blue flower-printed tunic, black cut-off leggings , and a purple and yellow paisley scarf. Looking awesome!

Magenta Kimono-Style Coat and Purple Scarf

As far as purple outfits go, this is one of the coolest ones, especially because of the gorgeous magenta shade of the coat and the kimono-style sleeves, a vintage feature that is rarely seen in manteaus now. A dark purple scarf shows off black hair, as the woman prepares to pour some water at a picnic on a park bench.
