Things I learned from Miranda Kerr: Basics can be so chic; Stay comfy yet fabulous can be so easy! Simple tops and skinny bottoms, paired with a statement coat, fabulous shoes and covetable handbag, finishing off with a bold lip, have become her off-duty signature. Maintaining an organized, curated closet composed with high-quality, classic pieces just makes dressing in the morning so easy, right?

In Chinese: 超模和辣妈Miranda Kerr用她无可挑剔的街拍造型告诉了我们,原来基础单品可以穿得这么时髦,原来舒适和时尚可以如此轻松得统一。简单的基本款上衣搭上紧身裤,加上抢眼的外套鞋子包包,以及她的标志性红唇,是她最常见的街拍造型。给有一大堆衣服却总觉得没衣服可穿的我们上了一课:那些永不退流行的经典款构成的衣橱才能经得起时间的考验,也让每天早上穿衣这一任务变得轻松而享受。对吗?

After the holiday season, my strapless cocktail dresses are just sitting in closet collecting dust. The above four looks really inspired me: by adding pieces under or over it, and combining with different accessories, a night-time strapless dress can definitely see good days! Below I played around this gorgeous classic yet sexy lace dress, resulted in four glamorous ensembles that are great for many occasions: brunch, hanging out with friends, a fun girl’s night out, or even a bridal shower! Hope you enjoy them as I did, and have fun with yours!

In Chinese:  每次一过派对季,我的抹胸小礼裙就被束之高阁了。但是今天的这4个造型给了我很多启发,其实搭配不同的单品和配饰,原本只属于夜晚派对的裙装完全胜任很多日常场合。下面的这四套就是在这些灵感缪斯的启发下,围绕着同一条蕾丝抹胸裙搭配的,你喜欢吗?

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。
