70s: Suede Skirt & Fling Coat

One skirt, two ways: Alexa Chung kept the palette simple with clean, tailored pieces in black and grey, while Olivia Palermo brought up the warmth of this earth tone with burgundy and green. The big front pockets, over the knee length and that split make the skirt so 70s. I love they blended in some modern touches too, from Chung’s hottest Prada scarf to Palermo’s military coat.

In Chinese: 很喜欢看到同一件单品出现在风格迥异的时尚达人身上,有种看高手过招的快感。这条麂皮的过膝裙在70年代复古风流行的春夏格外夯。这条裙子腰间的两个大口袋和前面的低开衩设计以及踝靴的搭配非常有七零年代的感觉。一向英伦风的艾里珊·钟搭配上了简约的黑和灰,配饰也选择了线条感极强的单品,比如方形的手包和来自普拉达秋冬款的纤细围巾。优雅名媛奥利维亚·巴勒莫则用温暖的墨绿、绛红色,以及军装风的大衣把麂皮裙穿出了另一种感觉。

Wear Now and Later: Denim Overalls

Fashion world gets nostalgic with the return of sneakers, friendship bracelets, and.. our featured piece today–overalls. Since we are not going back to childhood, pair your overalls with feminine pieces like the fresh cut-out tank on Alessandra Ambrosio and sophisticated cap toe ballet flat on Alexa Chung.

Speaking of Alexa Chung’s outfit, notice how she wears her trench coat? Sometimes, fashion is not about what you are wearing, but how you wear. All the pieces on her are classics we may already have in our closet, just by casually draping the coat over her shoulders like wearing a cape, she made the overall look fresh and current.

In Chinese: 时尚风向引着我们回到了小时候,和小伙伴们互编的手链、运动鞋、还有上面这两个造型里看到的背带裤等已连着火了好几季,就像国内流行海魂衫和回力鞋一样。因为背带裤本身就是孩子气很浓的单品,所以搭配时就尽量不要再配学院风的衬衫或T恤了,选择女人味的单品,比如超模Alessandra Ambrosio的白色镂空上衣或Alexa Chung的优雅拼色芭蕾鞋。Alexa Chung身上的这些单品都是常见的经典款,她把风衣披着穿,就给了这个看似平常的造型以新意和气场。有时候,时尚不在于你穿什么,而在于你怎么穿。对吗?

Cable Knit Sweater, Two Ways

Happy 2014 everyone! How is your New Year’s Eve? With a little one needs to be nursed around the clock, I opted out of the hoopla and stayed at my warm home with loved ones.

Kick off the first day with two classic, cozy yet fashionable looks. Cable knit sweaters are very nostalgic for me, growing up seeing heavy snow every winter, I can’t live without them. How to update? Play with textures by pairing them with tough leather or flowy chiffon; Also incorporate trendy elements, like the pleats (prepare to see them a lot next spring), skirts in midi length, and punky zips or studs seen on today’s featured fashion experts.

In Chinese: 新年快乐!你的新年前夜是怎么度过的呢?带着襁褓里的宝宝,又赶上纽约气温骤降,我只好选择呆在家里,不过和家人在一起,其乐融融,也很惬意。

今天我选了两个非常经典又不失时尚感的搭配,都是和一件我们很熟悉的单品有关的,那就是人人都离不开的毛衣。这种从小穿到大的衣服怎么穿出潮流感呢?贴士一:混搭不同的材质,把厚重的针织和硬朗的皮革或飘逸的雪纺配在一起;贴士二:引入当季的流行元素,比如百褶裙(明年春夏会很火哦),复古的中长裙,或有庞克风的拉链、铆钉等。
