Besides the different kinds of lust-worthy red pumps that we shared in my last entry, handbag is another great way to incorporate this bright, dynamic hue. Today, let’s start with those we use most in daily life–big totes.

Nicole Richie is known for her edgy Bohemian style. Today’s look is no exception: the tie dye dress perfectly showed her casual chic sensibility with an infusion of Bohemia, while the eye-catching Givenchy tote, Balenciaga ankle boots, beanie and sunglasses keeping the look modern and edgy.

This outfit is great for weekend getaways, hanging out with friends or running errands, also a stylish option for pregnant women like myself: I’m living in my loose shift dresses and flat ankle booties now!

When the color scheme becomes as simple as you can see on the right look above, it’s the detail that really matters: from the subtle brown trim on her sweater to the asymmetrical hemline of her skirt to the cap-toe oxford. The colorblock red tote really brightened up the whole look while echoing the simplicity. Change the mini skirt into shorts, skinny jeans or cropped pants, this look is great for women at any age!

How to use a pop of red to create more ladylike, party-ready outfits? Coming soon!

Hi everyone! It’s been such a long time since my last post. I’m going through a big change now and would like to share with this good news with you all: I’m going to be a mom soon! During the past two months, I have been tormented by the discomfort of pregnancy. Now I finally stepped into the so-called golden stage, although morning sickness is still around. And I will surely include more maternity style tips in the future, for those of you who are also expecting a new family member!

I’m glad I come back just in time: it’s the middle of fashion month, countless of runway looks and street styles are dazzling. With spring coming soon, there’s just too many to share! Today, let’s start with one of my favorite Chinese model Bonnie Chen (last time featured her here).

Black and white is a huge trend for this spring and will continue go into fall/winter as we saw from the latest runway shows. In her outfit, we can see trendy elements (like the high contrast palette and statement cross-body bag); fashion-forward elements that will coming next season (like her beanie and exaggerated hairstyle); and classic elements that never go out of style (leather pants, biker boots and crisp white button-down). All of these blend harmoniously. Compared to those showgoers with bare legs and sky high heels walking on snow, her look is not only stylish, but warm, comfy and easy.

Coat: Reiss (great buy on sale here)
Pants: J-Brand (also adore this pair)
Shoes: Aquatalia by Marvin K. (lust worthy pair here)
Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (also here & here)
Hat: Asos (or this one)

The beanies on Fall 2013 runways also remind me of this look of her (below). It was back in 2010, but Bonnie Chen’s red hat and her skilled layers keep this look stay in my notebook till now.

If you haven’t own a beanie yet, score one now, it will surely keep you in style!
