True Religion: Candid Outside Milk

Jeans outside Milk
This photo is one of my many candid photos from New York Fashion Week. I have no idea who she is, I just loved her classic American look: white button-down shirt, dark denim jeans (cuffed no less), and black patent leather oxford shoes. Even though this look references the 1950s, it’s wholly modern and quintessentially her, despite the simplicity. This is the essence of true style.

For years I’ve admired candid streetstyle photography and consider it the highest level of the art form. The stakes are obviously much higher because there’s the risk of missing the shot. With posed photography, unless you’re a complete amateur it’s nearly impossible to mess up the photo if you understand the fundamentals of lighting and composition.

Check this photo out on True Religion’s new Tumblr, Unstitched.


  1. Beautiful capture of the quintessential American look, Amy! This is what we are known for, and this girl rocks it!

  2. It doesn't get any better than this! Love it.
