Parka, “Body Con” Colorblock Manteau, and Pearl-Embroidered Jeans by the River

The 3 women are by a river pouring out water in a spring rite of passage…and one wears an olive green parka coat with a furry collar, which is a wintry look, as opposed to the light coats of the other 2 women. My favorite is the outfit on the right, as it features 1) a body-con (fitted strips of fabric) color-block white, navy blue, and grey manteau and2) jeans with beautiful large pearl decoration on them. Unfortunately, I was unable to find jeans like this and had to settle for jeans with a polka dot print all over (which still look cool)….

Fur-Edged Cape Strikes Again!

So, the beautiful black cape/poncho with the beige furry collar and cuffs from this post appears again- this time, you can see it in all its glory, and this time, it is worn with beige everything- pants, Ugg-style boots, and scarf. The woman proudly holds the man by the arm, while he is listening to music in his earphones- I wonder what music it is…

Visual Art Festival Styles

The styles are, of course, very cutting-edge…and there  is even a “coat with skirt” outfit in the set! The two outfits below are fairly minimalist, especially the all-black one (the blue-and-grey color-block one too, though..), but that red embroidered installation overshadows any outfit you put next to it….

The hunter green metallic sweater is…amazing! It’s extremely difficult to find this color and texture for a top, but a favorite local store did not let me down. The grey sleeveless cape and circle scarf draped low look great, but I wish I could see the full outfit.  Yes,this girl is posing as if she is holding hands with the man in the installation- so cute!

Another installation composed of rows upon rows of transparent bubble balls warrants a cool outfit too..right? The white textured manteau with a fur collar is worn with black leggings and ankle boots…and a red printed scarf tied not very low but still showing hair.

This part of the venue has lovely deep red walls…and there are 3 awesome outfits here. This is where the “coat with skirt”outfit is present in the center (involving a fully open beige manteau, brown skirt, red scarf, and brown and beige tall boots), which is my favorite here. There are also 2 nice “coat with pants” outfits, but they are not as unique, of course..

The Giant Photo Expo Set – Part II

The outfits in this part of the set are quite inventive and cool…first, a slightly more conventional grey and black plaid manteau worn with a pushed-back snood and ankle boots…

now for the coolness- how about a red and white polka dot dress manteau worn with a….YES…hat and scarf set, a rare and rebellious feature of winter manteau styles- and in this case, the hat happens to be a red beret showing off a ponytail through the back!

Another cool style involves an open olive green cardigan and an equally open olive green scarf over a beige turtleneck sweater. The red and green striped scarf on the right is pretty too…

…finally, a conventional black coat features a huge red shawl-like collar which is a bold and attention-getting detail. Love it!

The Giant Photo Expo Set -Part I

This is one of the bigger sets derived from a photo expo this year…and there are some cool outfits, such as this brown leather coat with leopard print trim and a black scarf loosely draped over red hair….the coolest thing is that this is a photographer taking photos of photos! 🙂

There are two views of the classic look- first, the front view of a gorgeous black trench coat with a metallic circular belt buckle…

..and then the side view of the same outfit, showing the tall boots worn with the coat.

Another black trench coat is worn with a loosely draped purple scarf, black leggings, and black laced-up boots with silver buckles (the classic “urban combat” style).

Opulent Palace Styles

The styles are more casual, but the palace in the background (possibly Golestan? Some of the other palaces in North Tehran look similar) is magnificent! These photos join several awesome outfits from these palaces, including this one..and this one. This beige manteau has a cool keyhole cut-out on the chest and large pleats on the skirt.

Outside, against a wall of tilework, another beautiful outfit appears – a long black and white coat with black  leggings and black shoes with thick white soles. These shoes are supposedly popular the last year or so, but I almost never see them with any manteau styles (exception being here).
