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。

I'm Helen. In the huge fashion world, what attracts me the most is the way different people accessorize themselves. Our daily outfit choices are not just about the pieces we pick, they relate to something lurking deeply within our hearts: how we feel about ourselves, how we express ourselves to the rest of the world, what kind of people do we want to be and what kind of life do we want to live. Following my passion for fashion, I immerse myself in this bizarre world and try my best to share what I learned with you!
