I’m taking another class in the San Francisco City College Fashion Department – this semester it’s Textile Analysis, which I’m really enjoying. So that puts me in the city once a week and taking BART.

About a month ago when the weather was still a little warm, I popped onto the train going home and settled in (standing). As usual I started looking around. At first this women didn’t really catch my eye but after a couple of perusals, I stopped on her.

I noticed the details of her sartorial choices and how it all worked together.

First, you can’t really see in the photo, but her slacks are cuffed. A nice detail, and one that is a perfect contrast with the Berks. You don’t expect to see Birkenstocks with tailored slacks. Also note that the hem is just a tad short. Much longer would look sloppy. Beyond that the shoes are in white. If you’ve got to wear Berks outside the house, white in smooth leather takes away the hippie vibe and perhaps even makes the look, in its way,  chic.

She tied in the white Berks with her white trendy longish cardigan. The slub knit yarn offers some texture. She added a bit of subtle color with a lightweight teal sweater (cotton/rayon?) and a nicely wrapped scarf in the colors of autumn. I love the quilted handbag in black (more texture).

No we’re not talking high fashion here but it’s her own simple style and I think it looks great!

Zara and Sahar.

On a recent Sunday afternoon I spotted these two lovely women chatting together in a local park while looking casual-chic.

Sahar and Zara originally hail from Iran but now live in the Lamorinda area.

Zara is wearing edgy ripped leggings paired with a comfy sneakers. I like that she chose a button-down shirt with a flattering slim-fit (instead of a more typical and less interesting T-shirt). She pulled the whole thing together by adding a pop of color in the turquoise scarf.

Sahar went for pattern in black and white to top her leggings. A longish sweater accented with faux fur offers lots of pizzazz and completes the outfit. Like Zara she used an accessory to brighten the look – love the fuchsia handbag! Another cute pair of trendy sneakers, which look sharp and guarantee easy walking.

Comfortable yet fashionable and interesting to boot.

Nicely done!
