Master Class: Print Mixing

There are a lot we can learn from these two looks of Olivia Palermo, my favorite part is how she played with patterns by using the classic black/white/red palette.

Striped pieces are wardrobe essential. Get inspired by Palermo, have fun with yours: team stripes in different colors or juxtapose stripes against plaid, leopard or flowers. When mixing, pick two pieces that share at least one color. Keep the others muted and simple.

In Chinese: 从街拍女王奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)的这两个造型里我们能学到很多搭配技巧,我最喜欢的是她运用经典的黑白红的色彩组合对格子和条纹的混搭。

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!
