Two great neutral outfits that are anything but boring. A small accessory—belt—had a profound impact on today’s featured looks. A midi skirt paired with a long shirt can be dangerous in terms of proportion, a belt that helps define the waist line and create layers solves the problem with ease. So does it for the look on the right: a hip length top paired with flats can make our legs appear very short, a waist belt combined with a mini skirt create the harmonious proportion while elongating the legs.

A reader Karin (Hi, Karin!) asked me what to wear to stay on trend in her 50s, while, the hot midi skirt trend is definitely for you! Change the crop tank top to any top in your closet, I can see you rock this look (above left) beautifully!

In Chinese: 今天分享两个低调却潮感十足的造型。你可能也注意到了,一个小小的配件–皮带–在这两个造型里都起到了非常关键的作用:第一个造型里中长裙和长衬衫原本是很危险的搭配,但借助一条腰带强调腰线,就轻松扭转了整身的效果。同样,第二个造型里的中长T恤搭配平底鞋会非常容易显腿短,加上一条腰带,再配上迷你短裙,腿部线条瞬间被拉长了。

一个读者问我50多岁怎么穿出时尚感,我觉得今天的第一造型就非常适合你,只要把里面的短款上衣换成你衣橱里已有的其它背心,你穿这套一定非常优雅!
