Winter White: One Top, Two Ways

Earlier this summer, before I got my hands on, the suede scallop top Kate Bosworth designed for Topshop was sold out everywhere. So this time, when the all-round style icon collaborated with Topshop again, I marked my calendar and got this white leather sweater as you can see on both of her looks above. I love how she chose white leather to add a fresh and edgy twist on the right-on-trend sweatshirt.

Compared to the last festival-themed collection, The Collection Starring Kate Bosworth truly reflects the star’s personal aesthetic: well-balanced modern simplicity and the perfect mixing of feminine and masculine.

The above two looks showed us how she mixes high street with high fashion, balances trends with basics, offsets eye-catching statements with quiet neutrals, and restyles the same piece for different occasions.

In Chinese: 今年夏天,我最后悔错过的一个单品是Kate Bosworth为Topshop设计的音乐节系列中的一件麂皮镂空上衣,在我决定下单子的时候,所有的店面已经全部卖光了。所以当我听说她会再次为Topshop推出一个秋冬系列时,就锁定了其中的一件白色的皮质运动上衣 (就是你在她的这两个造型里看到的这一件),这次再也不会错过了。

其实相比上次她特意为音乐节设计的单品,我更喜欢这次的这个系列,和她简约帅性又不失女人味的个人风格很接近,每一件都是值得收藏,不会过时的经典,线条和颜色很简单,又很有态度。

她上面的这两个look里就包含了好几件她这次设计的作品,看似简单的造型混搭了设计师的单品和人人都买得起的高街品牌,用简单低调的色彩平衡了图纹、金属等抢眼的元素,通过变换配饰让一件相同的单品适合不同的场合。

Transitional Dressing: Sleeveless Coat & Menswear Shoes

Besides celebrity street styles and models off-duty looks, I’m always looking for outfit inspirations from fashion editors, bloggers and photographers. Alexia Niedzielski, who I deeply admire, is definitely one of them.

Above I featured two outfits of her that are great for this time of the year. These looks combined some of the season’s hottest trends, like oversized coat, color red and menswear shoes.

Teaming trendy pieces with basics (like the simple T-shirts, jeans and leather shorts on her) is an easy and smart way to keep up with trends while standing out as elegantly characterful.

In Chinese: 除了明星和超模的街拍look外,能给我很多灵感的还有一些有自我风格和态度的时尚编辑、摄影师和博主。今天的这一位就是其中的代表–来自巴黎的摄影师和Ever Manifesto杂志的创始人Alexia Niedzielski。

她的这两个look很适合早秋,而且融入了这一季最新的时尚元素像宽松的外套、红色男士鞋款、未来感的配饰等。把流行的单品和你平时常穿的基本款搭配起来是既容易操作又聪明的搭配方法,彰显时尚品味的同时又不失个人风格。

Party Time: Dress Up Your Sweaters

When we think of pullovers, we think of a relaxed Sunday stroll or coffee runs, but how about styling them for an event, a sweet date or a party?

Here, Jamie Chung opted for a beloved juxtaposition: stripes and florals. The key is keeping the prints in the same color family. Her cutout booties match the stripes on her sweater while a mirrored clutch adding a futuristic edge. I love a great bodycon dress, which can be restyled as a top or a skirt without the extra bulk.

Hailee Steinfeld’s look is fashionable yet age-appropriate. The signature lips sweater on her is by Markus Lupfer, and I’m obsessed with all the graphic tops he designed. You can style them with a blazer, a leather jacket, a pencil skirt or, for the young ones, a flirty skater skirt like Hailee Steinfeld did above. They will add a playful attitude to any look, formal or casual.

In Chinese: 想到线衫,我们都会把它和休闲场合联系起来。但有没有想过穿着这些“休闲”的单品出席正式活动、派对或者浪漫的约会呢?

Jamie Chung把它和一条数位印花的裙子搭起来,条纹和印花的组合虽然不再新鲜,但每次看到总是让人眼前一亮。搭配上镂空的踝靴未来感的金属手拿包,时尚中又有自己的态度和个性。一条漂亮的包身裙实用又百变,既可以单穿,又可以当上衣或裙子来做不同的搭配。

Hailee Steinfeld的造型时尚又很符合她的年龄。这件红唇线衫Markus Lupfer所设计的众多图案中最具代表性的。这个年轻的来自伦敦的德国设计师设计的每件上衣我都非常喜欢,充满趣味,异想天开的图案无论搭配中规中矩的西服、庞克风的皮衣、女人味的铅笔裙或小女孩的伞裙等都别有一番风味。
