With a small frame, it really took me a long time to wrap my head around the notion of thigh high boots. After trying out a few, I found that it’s all about the right fit: it has to be slimming from the ankle to the thigh area. About the length, those end below the mid thigh are more flattering and proportional to my frame. When it comes to styling, pair them with casual Tees or girly flare skirts/dresses to keep them from looking too sexy.

In Chinese: 我本身也是矮个儿一族,所以对于大热的大腿靴也是犹豫了很长时间才决定挑战看看。试了几次之后发现只要选对款式,娇小女孩完全可以穿,关键在于靴筒要从脚踝开始就非常服帖,一直到大腿的部分都要合,才会显得腿更纤细修长。长度的话最好在膝盖上三寸左右,不要过高。日常穿搭时配上休闲的条纹T恤、针织衫或女孩风的伞裙来平衡大腿靴的性感。

Camel, leopard and denim, all three are classic and timeless. Together, they result fun, sophisticated and youthful looks. As always, it’s the details that count:

Cashmere or wool blend camel pieces have that luxury vibe while providing the extra warmth we need; Leopard accessories, like bags, belts or shoes are great ways to incorporate this forever trendy print without being overwhelming, I especially love those made of haircalf material; As for denim, faded chambray shirt, distressed jeans or patchwork denim pieces provide that artfully disheveled, effortless chicness.

In Chinese: 驼色、豹纹和牛仔都是不退流行的经典时尚元素。但每一个在挑选和搭配时又各有需要留意的小细节:

像所有的中性色一样,驼色的单品很强调质感,喀什米尔或羊毛混纺的外套会更保暖、更经穿,看起来也更柔和。至于大家都爱的豹纹,用配饰点缀就够了,无论是豹纹的手包腰带还是鞋子。我尤其偏爱马毛质地,看起来更高贵典雅。牛仔的引入能给驼色和豹纹“减龄”,尤其是水洗带有破洞拼接设计的牛仔单品,与精良的羊毛或马毛制品混搭在一起,更有随性的酷感。
