I asked this woman two questions: 1) Do you work in a style-related business? – No; 2) Do you have anything you’d like to say about your style? – No. Simple as that. On anybody else this would be just a trenchcoat and a scarf, but on this woman these pieces are exceptional. I saw her shine from half a block away. She is a fine demonstration that it’s not just the clothes but the person in the clothes that separates drab from fab. I love her presence, her ease in front of the camera, and her attention to details.
Mmm, my favourite – the beautiful bow tie. I watched the remake of the movie Sabrina last night, and the character, Linus, a New York business scion, wore bow ties as a symbol of his ultra-conservative, out-of-touch nature. In contrast, this man’s bow tie shows wonderful style confidence and individuality, and a sense of playfulness, while maintaining boardroom-appropriate professionalism. I love these glasses and shoes, too, and the light trench coat on this overcast but relatively mild day was welcome visual relief. Fantastic smile.
