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!

 Olivia Palermo style 2014;  spring summer 2014 outfit ideas; how to wear black and white; midi skirt trend, fringe trend

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。

how to accessorize a black maxi dressPhotos: Jamie Chung & Vanessa Hudgens; Courtesy of Splash News.

There are a millions ways to accessorize a black maxi dress, I especially appreciate the subdued beauty of pairing black with other neutrals, like showed above: Vanessa Hudgens highlighted her sexy yet demure maxi with all black accessories while Jamie Chung opted for a sophisticated black/nude palette.

A black maxi dress is no doubt a wardrobe essential that can be worn year-round (remember these outfits of Miranda Kerr?). If you already have the basic version, invest in one with eye-catching details like asymmetrical hem, sexy cut out, daring open back, or double slits.

In Chinese: 一条简单的黑色长裙可以有数不清的穿搭方法。可能很多人倾向于加些颜色或印花图案作为亮点,我却偏爱把小黑裙本身作为重点,用其它中性色或黑色本身去装饰,那种优雅、带着点克制哲学的低调美别有韵味,比如今天看到的这两个造型。

黑色长裙是一年四季都可以穿的衣橱必备 (还记得米兰达·可儿的这四个搭配吗?),如果你已经有了基本款,投资一条有流行元素的,比如前短后长的不对称剪裁性感的小镂空双开叉等等。
