Spice Up Black and White

Black/white graphic is by far my favorite trend. The classic and simple palette gives us a lot of room to play with textures, patterns and accessories. Here, Olivia Palermo made her monochromatic outfit anything but boring by mixing various stripes, juxtaposing with leopard, and bringing in modern fringes. When you resist the temptation of adding bright colors, it rewards you a much bigger stage to express yourself!

In Chinese: 重新回潮的黑白几何图案是我的最爱。简单经典的色彩组合赋予了我们更多的空间去体验不同材质、印花和配饰碰撞的别样感觉。今天的这个造型里,奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)通过运用不同走向和宽窄的条纹、以及条纹与豹纹流苏的混搭等把黑白变得生动有趣、潮感十足。克制住加入亮色的冲动,让黑白做主角,它会回赠予你一个更广阔的表达创意的舞台!

Wear Crop Tops At Any Age

Crop tops are everywhere now. Last time I shared two casual, relaxed outfits incorporated this trend, today I picked two feminine and girly looks: one is from 38-year-old sweet mommy Reese Witherspoon, another is from 24-year-old Taylor Swift. Reese Witherspoon kept hers tasteful and age-appropriate with the seamless transition and peek-a-boo effect, while young starlet Taylor Swift fully embraced the trend with a much shorter top, fun accessories and carefree confidence!

In Chinese:  人人都在穿短款上衣了!上次我分享了两个很休闲随性的造型,今天我选了两个完全相反,非常女人味的搭配,而且她们代表了不同年龄段的人:38岁的甜美妈咪瑞茜·威瑟斯彭(Reese Witherspoon)和24岁的乐坛小天后泰勒·史薇芙特(Taylor Swift) 。瑞茜·威瑟斯彭选择了稍长的款式,搭配上高腰的裙子,只巧妙地通过镂空设计对这个露脐潮流做出符合自己年纪和风格的诠释。身材热辣的泰勒·史薇芙特则大胆地露出蛮腰和长腿,糖果色的配件更增加了甜美和年轻感。

When I read the news that it took designer Marcus Wainwright a whole year to develop the now widely loved Boy Tee, I was not surprised. I’m very picky when it comes to white tees, and always on the hunt for that perfect one, I know how hard it is. When I find the right one, I do not hesitate to stock up even before I check the price tag–For me, it’s priceless: A perfect white tee makes me feel great every time I wear it; It goes with everything, fits any occasion and can be worn year round, on its own or layered. It makes dressing in the morning less daunting, because I know that when everything else fails, I can always count on my perfect white tee. Besides my new favorite Boy Tee, J.Crew and T by Alexander Wang are also my go-to places for the right one. Next on my wishlist? This make-you-feel-like-a-million-bucks one by The Row.

In Chinese: 当我前段时间在时尚资讯里读到瑞格布恩的设计师马可斯·温莱特(Marcus Wainwright)花了一年的时间研发设计了这款现在被时尚博主们热捧的男孩风白T恤时,我一点也不惊讶,因为作为白T恤的狂热追捧者,我深知找到一款完美的白T恤有多难。如果有合适的,我会不计价格地囤起来。对我来说,衣橱里必不可少的单品里第一件就是完美的纯白T恤:它和任何单品都可以搭配而且几乎可以穿去任何场合(像红毯或正式晚宴等场合当然需要其它单品的辅助),而且四季都能穿。有了一件完美的白T在衣橱,出门前少了很多紧张,因为当感觉穿什么都不对的时候,把它拖出来准没错。J.CrewT by Alexander Wang也是我囤货的必去之地。我理想的终极白T恤?这件让你穿上感觉像百万富翁的奢华版!
