Sunday Special: High Fashion On The High Line

I figured I’d try something different, and ended up on The High Line this week. I am lucky I did because I came across this stunning model posing for a shoot. With her hair slicked back and her makeup done, she braved the hot sun to provide the perfect pose. The lace blouse she wore is stunning, with a Renaissance look to it, especially with the bell cuffs on the sleeves. The gold weave and encrusted jewels create a lovely design that screams “high fashion!” The white, pleated trouser, into which the blouse is tucked, creates a nice a simple, refined buffer. The cuffed legs provide a little air circulation in the heat and also show off the Lacoste tennis shoes, which are perfect for the boardwalk feel of the High Line.

Cool Mint

Mint is a very popular shade right now. This young lady wears a mint, sleeveless dress with a deep v neckline. The black sash tied in a bow around her waist really helps to make the dress look superb. Her minimalist necklace is the perfect accessory for this open neckline, without looking too overdone. The two-tone heels are very fashionable, but their neutral colors don’t take away from the power of the dress. The black messenger bag works well with the sash, and breaks up the solid dress just a tiny bit more.

Chic From Head To Toe

This young lady has a very unique, yet extremely appealing style. Her white button up blouse has a decoration of black triangles around the collar and pocket. She wears her sleeves rolled up above her elbows, and leaves the top button buttoned. The wide diameter necklace, with the large medallion, is a great accent to the collar. Her ruffled, blue shorts are mostly concealed by the bottom of the blouse, but create a strong accent where they do show through. The Dior wedge sandals are another statement piece in this outfit, and are simply magnificent. The way she wears her headscarf, with the big bow in front, has a retro look and pulls together all the colors of the ensemble.

Urban Overalls

While completely void of color, this outfit has a fun and flirty demeanor to it. The olive drab overalls are a stylish take on a classic. She wears them rolled at the bottoms with leopard print slip-ons. The lack of a shirt underneath, reveals a strapless black bra and a cluster of charms hanging from a couple of chains around her neck. The only touch of color comes from her orange nail polish, which give the outfit a bit of life. The messy hairdo is stylish, and goes with the relaxed “don’t care” feel of the ensemble.
