The transition from desk to dinner can be so easy and effortlessly chic as demonstrated by Jessica Alba: With a button down shirt or a fitted double-breasted blazer, the left look is perfect for a Monday filled with meetings. After work, simply take off the shirt/jacket, add a sleek choker and voilà! You get a oh-so-sexy night out outfit. The high-waisted wide-leg trousers balance the bustier, making the look more demure less vulgar. For the second outfit, you can wear it on casual Fridays in the office with a roomy tote. When dusk comes, let your hair hang down, elegantly drape the blazer on your shoulders, grab your favorite cocktail ring, you are ready for a great time at club!

In Chinese: 从通勤到派对的着装转换可以如此轻松自如!看看杰西卡·阿尔芭(Jessica Alba)的这两个造型吧:第一个搭配加上一件衬衫或收腰的双排扣西装外套,很有主管范儿,非常适合忙碌的周一。到了晚上,把衬衫或外套脱掉,露出性感的胸衣马甲,晚上约会再适合不过。高腰阔腿裤中和了束腰马甲的露肤度,低调的配色也让整个造型与艳俗绝缘,反而显得优雅又有品味。第二个造型配上一个大包就是休闲随性的周五上班服。下班后,加上手拿包和鸡尾酒戒指,把外套披在肩上,就可以去派对了。

How to wear shirtdress, celebrity street style  2014; spring/summer 2014 outfit ideas

A new way to wear your shirtdress: leave it open from the waist down, showing off a pair of eye-catching shorts, which adds dimension and details to the look, also gives the soft and preppy shirtdress a trench-coat-alike chicness. Finish off the look with sexy lace up sandals and gold accents to balance out the menswear inspired outfit.

Modified versions of the classic white button-down are definitely on-trend now.  Beside this one by ‘T-master’ Alexander Wang, I also suggest this affordable and versatile version which can be layered with anything from shorts to skirts and pants. 

In Chinese: 介绍一个衬衫裙的新穿法:把腰部以下的扣子打开,搭配上短裤或裤裙。这种穿法赋予了柔和的衬衫裙以风衣一样的酷感,同时丰富了整体造型的层次。一双蛇皮的绑带细高跟鞋金色的配饰为中性元素的服装加入了恰到好处的杀伤力。

这一季设计师们对经典的白衬衫做了很多有设计感的改良。如果你觉得Olivia Palermo身上的这件及膝的衬衫裙不好驾驭,那就试试这件平价、前卫又百搭的新品吧!无论是和短裤、不同长度的裙装还是裤装搭配,都会很有范儿。

How to wear stripes, celebrity street style  2014; spring/summer outfit ideas,

Lines have a great impact on camouflaging or enhancing our body shape. The effect is most clearly highlighted by high-contrasting stripes. Take this striped dress on Taylor Swift for example: the variegated lines, combined with strategically placed black side panels, result a visually slimming look. 

Accessories, once again, played a big part in their outfits: a demure, sophisticated handbag and cool, retro oxford pumps balanced the sexiness of Taylor Swift’s mini body-con dress, while Olivia Palermo chose a structured colorblock satchel and lux calf-hair print slipper to elevate the casualness of her stripe tee.

In Chinese: 线条对整体着装的影响很大,对比强烈的条纹尤其能说明这一点。拿小天后泰勒·斯维芙特(Taylor Swift)的这条裙子来说吧:它的条纹从胸线以下变得密集起来,再加上侧边黑色的拼接,视觉上非常显瘦。

除了线条的作用,这两个造型再一次提醒了我们配饰的影响力:泰勒·斯维芙特(Taylor Swift)优雅的裸色方包学院风的牛津包鞋平衡了她包身迷你短裙的性感;奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)则用有趣又有正式感的撞色手包和波纹马毛鞋提升条纹T恤的休闲感。
