Down To Earth Duchess

One of the reasons why Kate Middleton is so popular is her down-to-earth style. Not only does she wear high-street brands, but she constantly recycles her old favorites, like this Smythe navy blazer that she has been wearing since 2011. Today’s featured outfits of her incorporate a classic combination–blazer and sheath dress–that is great for the office, formal events or mixed and matched with casual items for the weekends. More overs, Each piece on her is classic wardrobe staple that you can wear season after season.

In Chinese: 凯特王妃广受喜爱和她亲民的穿衣风格不无相关。在她身上不仅常常能看到大家都可以买得起的高街品牌,而且还能看到她怎么重复搭配这些单品,比如这件她三年前就穿过的西装外套。今天所选的她的这两个搭配里几乎每一件单品都是不退流行的经典,无论是上班穿,还是参加正式活动,或拆开来搭配上休闲的单品周末穿都非常合适。

Desk to Dinner

One reason I really admire Miranda Kerr’s style is the simplicity and versatility, especially after she became a mom. Take these two outfits for example, I can easily picture her wear the left one with a ballet flat or loafer for playing with Flynn, then change her red scalloped pump for business meetings (with an outerwear that is stored in her roomy tote to put on when in the air-conditioned office). In the afternoon, simply change the dressy trousers and heels with a flowy maxi skirt and flat sandals, she looks dinner-ready, and the outfit will be comfy enough for an after-dinner walk too.

In Chinese: 熟悉的读者都知道我非常钟爱米兰达·可儿(Miranda Kerr)的穿衣风格,一个重要的原因是她的造型非常简约而且只需要简单的变化就能适合各种场合,很适合忙碌的上班族,尤其是她自己当了妈妈以后的那些出街造型。比如今天的这两个,左边的搭配换上芭蕾平底鞋或乐福鞋,就可以和儿子去公园玩,换上她的这双侧边有水波装饰的红色低跟鞋,加上放在大包里的外套,就可以去办公室了。下午只要简单地把裤子换成飘逸的雪纺长裙,加上平底凉鞋,和一抹红唇,把长发放下来,就可以去约会了,饭后散步时也看起来清爽舒适又漂亮。

New Handbag Crush: Givenchy Obsedia

Even though this outfit itself best exemplified effortless chicness, it was Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s newest bag that caught my eye–her enviable Givenchy Obsedia. This beauty showed up in the house’s spring/summer 2014 collection. Besides the timeless yet modern color combinations, I love how practical it is. It has a detachable and adjustable shoulder strap, two compartments (one at the front with branded twist lock closure, one at the back).

My favorite part? The front flat can be tucked in for a whole new different look, which also means that you can carry it with the logo or logo free, kinda like the Luis Vuitton Capucines, but costs less than half as much. And does the sophisticated palettes remind you of Celine Trapeze?  Will ‘Obsedia’ be the new ‘Antigona’?

In Chinese: 今天的这个造型简约随性又不失女人味,但最吸引我的还是罗西·汉丁顿-惠特莉(Rosie Huntington-Whiteley)的新款手袋:来自纪梵希2014春夏系列的“Obsedia”。一露面就迅速打败“Antigona”,成为了我愿望清单里排在首位的包包。它的造型和色彩兼具古典和摩登气息。可拆卸也可以调整长度的肩背带以及前后两个隔间大大提升了它的实用性。

最让我倾心的设计细节是它前面像信封一样的翻面可以折进去,不但有了完全不同的新感觉,而且提供了显示品牌标识和不显示两种选择,对于我这种不喜欢Logo, 在很多场合更不想让包包识别度太高的人来说再合适不过。这个设计非常像路易·威登的‘ Capucines’,但价格还不到一半。另外它的优雅的拼色设计也让我想起了另一款总是被一抢而空的IT包–赛琳的‘Trapeze’。你觉得这个包会成为下一个炙手可热的’Antigona‘吗?
