A fashionable wardrobe is not completed without denim. For an evergreen material like this, I always look for interesting designs,  like the patchwork effect, lived-in vibe and fun overall silhouette seen on today’s featured denim pieces. I love how Olivia Palermo used this humble fabric to offset her graceful midi skirt, chic pinstripe shirt and glamorous metallic accessories, resulting two effortlessly chic outfits that are great for many summer activities: from a Sunday brunch, to a drive-in movie night, anywhere you want to stay comfortable with glamour.

In Chinese:   每一个时尚达人的衣橱里一定少不了各式的牛仔单品。对于这种不退流行的经典元素,就要在设计和剪裁上寻找新意,比如今天的这些牛仔单品上看到的不同水洗色的拼接完美的做旧效果以及正流行的连体廓形等等。牛仔的经典在于它和任何材质都可以混搭,从秋冬的皮草到春夏的雪纺。奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)就用低调的牛仔来平衡这几季流行的大伞裙,用童趣的背带裤中和男士衬衫的硬朗。这两个造型舒适又有型,适合很多夏日活动,比如约会或看汽车电影等。

What would Parisienne wear on Saturday mornings for dog walking or coffee run? Probably this one of Olivia Palermo, truly effortless chic, and great for year-round, no matter the age.

In Chinese: 想想巴黎女子会在悠闲的周六早上遛狗或买咖啡时穿什么?可能就是奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)的这个造型吧,精良简约的基本款,舒适随性又优雅,而且不分年纪,也四季皆宜。

Birthday Girl

A great example of high-low mixing from Miranda Kerr on her birthday: dramatic Chanel long knit and covetable Chanel Lego are combined with wardrobe basics like a plain white Tee and distressed jeans. Sequin shoes, scarlet lips and nails add glamour to the casual look.

In Chinese: 今天所选的米兰达·可儿(Miranda Kerr)的这个生日造型就是大牌和高街的漂亮混搭:香奈儿的运动风长线衫和新款的积木链条包配上衣橱里最基本的白T恤破洞牛仔裤亮片的芭蕾平底鞋和她标志性的红唇给整体的休闲风注入了一抹华丽和性感。
