Toughen Up Pink

pink coat, tassel necklace, michael kors clutch, studed pump

Love this pretty powder pink wool coat! The wrap style gives its an effortlessly chic vibe, reminds me of the legendary MaxMara one that I always dream to own, but cost only a fraction of the latter. To balance the sweetness, I love to pair it with a vintage inspired tassel necklace (only $28!) and an edgy studded pump. A classic black box clutch that can be tossed into any day bag is the perfect piece for that easy day-to-night transition.

Ask Helen: What to Wear

Q: I’m a mom of two, work at an IT company that doesn’t have a strict dress code. Thanks to that, I easily blur the boundaries between casual and sloppy. I want to incorporate trendy and chic elements into my outfits, but still look appropriate.

A: As a working mom myself, I totally understand your struggle. Below I put together three outfits for you:

First one is this chic office look that is also very easy to transition from day to night:

Clockwise from top left:

Dress: Zara

Necklace: Vintage Chanel (the best indulge-yourself gift! similar here)

Lip: Dolce & Gabbana (my favorite everyday lip gloss!)

Shoe: Stuart Weitzman

Second outfit is a glamorous party look that is perfect for the coming holiday season. I actually styled two outfits for you, whether you want to go a little bit unexpected with the first one–a turtleneck sweater paired with flirty feather skirt and sexy sandal, or you want more coverage but still look sexy and feminine with this sheer tie front blouse paired with the same skirt and a killer over the knee boots.

Last but not least, an elegant outfit for school event. You can go with what showed on the model, pair this on-trend red midi skirt with a floral sweatshirt, or opt for an urban chic look by teaming it with a simple black sweater and coordinated low pumps:

How to Wear Your Camel Coat

An impeccably tailored camel coat is definitely an investment piece we turn to every year when the temperature drops. How to give yours a fresh, up-to-date look this season? Look at today’s featured look of Miranda Kerr during Paris fashion week: leather leggings combined with modernized Mary Jane pumps, add an unexpected edgy twist to the familiar camel coat, while a slate blue cross body bag completing an oh-so-delicate color combination when placed against camel and black.

In Chinese: 驼色大衣是不退流行的经典,今年秋冬怎么穿出新意呢?看看米兰达·可儿在前不久结束的巴黎时装周期间的这个看似简单却独具心思的搭配吧:性感的深v小黑裙用皮裤作打底,加上被设计师尼古拉斯·盖斯奇埃尔(Nicolas Ghesquière)重新演绎的复古和时尚兼备的玛丽珍鞋,外套是流行又便于展示穿搭层次的“斗篷式”披法,优雅的灰蓝色链条包和温暖的驼色的组合则清新别致。
