Oh, white! There are so much to say about it that I don’t even know where to start. No doubt that it’s a perfect color for spring and summer. But since someone raised this question last fall: “why can’t we wear white after labor day?”  Then white finally be worn the year round-which greatly satisfied “white” fans like me.

I have a tiny frame and an “Asian face” which make me look much better and “visible” in white than in black, especially in white tops, they can instantly correct lighten my skin tone. Wearing them as I was holding reflector for myself. So, the first-class members in my  wardrobe are white blazers and button downs.

Let’s start from white blazers. They can add polish to any outfit, and give you the fresh, crisp, effortlessly chic look you need in spring and summer. When it comes to pairing them, there are millions of ways. Today I want to focus on my favorite way-pairing white blazers with black pieces.

I know, this combo is so classic. By trying different materials, details or cuts, and combined with different accessories, this classic combination can be luxury or easy-breezy, edgy or sweet, polish or laid back…You name it. Let take a look at these stylish ladies:

During economic recession like this year, I always want something glitter that can cheer myself up, also give me the hope and power that I need, that’s why I love love gold pieces. As heritage from medieval period, metallic pieces combines retro and modern, luxury and powerful.

Since 2008 till now, metallic pieces never go out of style. We can spot them all over the runways. But I haven’t gotten to the point to wearing gold garments, like a trench or a dress, small amount of glamour is just what I need, like this stunning gold belt on Gwyneth Paltrow. Her belt comes with the dress from Stella McCartney Evening 2012 collection.
