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.

Styling tassel or fringe pieces can be quite challenging. Olivia Palermo showed us how in two different ways: give them more punch with exotic accessories and geo patterns for a world traveler’s refined gipsy look or polish them up with sleek shapes and clean lines. The result? Effortlessly chic ensembles you can wear for the office, a date-night or strolling around town.
In Chinese: 搭配流苏装饰的单品挺有挑战性的，希望Olivia Palermo的这两个造型能让你在日常生活中大胆尝试一下：上图左边的look里她搭配了颇有异域风情的配饰和不同的几何图案，使整身造型很有故事感，仿佛带上了她旅行中每一站的记忆；右边的look里她则用利落的廓形和简洁的线条给流苏赋予了精良的都市感。

As you can see, I’m obsessed with the color yellow now. It’s so endearing and uplifting, universally flattering and incredibly versatile. It’s also a color that is ageless and seasonless.
There are so many ways to play with it. Start with shapes, you can find flirty peplum, dramatic ball gown, sexy bodycon or sleek sheath from the top picks featured below.
This buoyant color also adds its own spin to our favorite materials: It infuses youthful exuberance to delicate silk, livens up the mature jacquard or tweed, tones down the sexiness of lace…
Either wear it as a pop of color to your monochrome ensemble for a chic daytime look or team it with other primary colors or metallic accents for a glamorous evening look, have fun experimenting with your yellow pieces!
