Parisian Chic

Parisian Style; Trench Coat Outfit Ideas; Karlie Kloss at J.Crew party, New York – March 26 2014: wearing jcrew white coat, striped dress, cutout booties, gold accessories.Photos: Karlie Kloss; Courtesy of rexfeatures.com.

Why I love it: Parisian chic with an American twist thanks to the wide striped body-hugging dress and sexy cut-out booties.

Style Tip: Resist the urge to add splashes of color. This season, black and white is just enough to make an impact.

In Chinese: 更具现代感的宽条纹紧身裙、白色风衣以及镂空高跟鞋的搭配有着法式的精致优雅, 又带了些美式的性感。这一季在穿黑白配时,抑制下自己总想加些色彩的冲动,感受像老电影般简约经典的黑白魅力吧。

Wear It Now and Later: Leather Pants

Slouchy leather pants are great alternative to the ubiquitous leather leggings. they are relaxed, comfy, unexpected and very flattering. This season, pick a pair with elastic waist for a cool sporty touch (and one more dessert, anyone?). I love how Alessandra Ambrosio juxtaposed hers against sexy and feminine bow pumps. The look was best complemented with her off-duty nonchalance.

For now, wear the pants with a right-on-trend cropped jumper and a long vest or blazer for the right balance. When it’s warmer, pair it with your well-worn graphic tee or a flowy embroidered top.

In Chinese: 这种松垮的皮裤在运动风盛行的这几季很流行,比起处处可见的紧腿皮裤,这种裤型穿起来舒适又可以修饰肉肉腿。选择的时候挑略带锥形的版型,有松紧腰带的设计更呼应这一季的运动风,还可以吃到饱。穿的时候卷起裤腿露出纤细的脚踝,搭配上有对比的女人味的尖头鞋

初春的时候配上毛衣或卫衣穿。如果选择流行的露脐款,外面加上长版的西装外套马甲平衡露肤度。天气热些了,就可以配上这种酷酷的字母图案的T恤或波希米亚风的镂花小上衣
