Bold printed pants have been on trend since last year, with new elements added, such as pajama, geometric pattern and sporty trends, these beloved printed pants have been constantly reinvented.

I initially had reservations about this type of pants because they tend to make our legs look wider and shorter, but with more and more options for different prints, cuts and materials, we can totally nail this trend while looking slim and effortlessly chic. Gwen Stefani & Miranda Kerr showed us how:

Choose “smart” prints, like the Peige one on Gwen Stefani, it looks like her legs are the same width as the print, the black side stripes also help to slim her legs; Go for high waisted version, it’s more flattering, especially when you choose loose fit one like the pair on Miranda Kerr; Opt for shoes in the same color family as the pants or a classic pointy-toe pump, both will help elongate legs; Pair them with plain tops, let the pants do the talk.

花朵、几何图案的印花裤从去年开始就很流行了,这几季在加入了新的元素后,这种裤型更受欢迎。我刚开始对印花裤敬而远之,总觉得会显腿粗,但是随着选择越来越多,挑到图案抢眼又时尚,而且修饰身形的印花裤已经不是什么难事了,我们可以从Gwen Stefani 和 Miranda Kerr上面的这两个造型里学到一些挑选和搭配的小技巧:

选择“有心机”的图案,Gwen Stefani身上的这条就很有巧思,视觉上她的腿只有中间内侧的几何图案那么纤细,另外,侧边的两条黑色直条纹也像给腿部打了阴影,更加强了显瘦的效果。高腰款式是拉长腿部线条的不二选择,尤其是穿像Miranda Kerr的这种宽松横条纹裤。在鞋子的选择上,和裤身同色系的鞋或经典的尖头高跟鞋也能使腿看起来更修长。

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target is my favorite target collaboration so far. The pieces are classic & contemporary, yet with a bold, edgy or fun twist, perfectly meet a modern woman’s need. Today’s featured looks above are great example of how versatile Phillip Lim’s designs is.

Tuxedos are must have for a modern working woman, not only because they can take you from office to cocktail party (a quick change can be as simple as taking off the button-down shirt you wear for the office and button up the jacket to show a hint of cleavage), but also because the separates can be mixed with many other pieces in your closet, be it a fun, whimsical sweatshirt or a bold flirty animal print mini skirt, a futuristic clear stiletto or a studded clutch, let the unexpected juxtaposition show off your taste and unknown side.

3.1 Phillip Lim和Target合作的这个系列是我今年最喜欢的。一如Phillip Lim一贯的设计风格,这些单品经典中有现代感,又不乏有趣或大胆的色彩和细节,完美契合了现代女性工作、娱乐和社交的需求,价格更是亲民。我最喜欢的一点是,他所设计的单品可以随意混搭,从而最大化使用率。

这套藏蓝色的西服套装为例,整套搭配起来既可以穿去办公室又可以参加派对:只需要脱掉你穿去办公室的白衬衫,把西装外套当作上衣来穿,酷帅中带点性感的装扮能让你在一片俗套的抹胸裙中脱颖而出。

把外套和裤装分开来,搭配你衣橱中已有的单品,变化就更多了。无论是搭配一件趣味十足的涂鸦T恤、狂野的动物纹短裙还是未来感十足的透明塑胶金属配饰,发挥创意展现你的时尚品味和不为人知的另一面吧。

Peplum is the hottest word last season, and will still be around this year. That little extra fabric makes a huge difference: it perfectly reshapes our body by creating that attractive “S” silhouette while allowing us to eat one more piece of cake.

There are many ways to wear this style: with jeans (skinny, boyfriend or distressed), cropped pants or skater skirt. But the more feminine way? With pencil skirt. The body hugging pencil skirt highlights the exaggerated peplum, gives the whole look a sexy vibe.

Since both pieces (peplum top and pencil skirt) are so feminine, to balance it out, today’s look is a perfect example: the military style and neutral palette of her jacket grounded the bright skirt and pumps while the colorblock bag adding a sleek, modern touch.

Inspired by the overall shape and color palette of  Elena Perminova’s outfit, I found the pieces below that I adore this season, hope to give your some ideas on how to play with this silhouette and the seasonless, timeless color combo (blue and orange/red)!
