Colored blazer is a versatile piece we can wear for the office and weekend, I especially love cobalt blue version, because the color is eye-catching yet sophisticated, easy-going and ultra flattering. Did I mention that it’s the hottest color this season?

Last time, we shared how to style a blue blazer for warm weather (remember those gorgeous sandals, cute prints and distressed jeans? ). Today’s featured looks of  Emma Stone & Jessica Alba showed us how to wear it for late summer and fall:

Dark colors and earthy tones are our go-tos for cold weather, and cobalt blue goes perfectly with those shades, like the grey, black, and rich brown showed on today’s featured stars; Accessories are always a quick, easy and affordable way to update any look. Here, Emma Stone opted for right-in beanie and menswear-inspired oxford to make the classic black/blue combination look fresh and updated while hot mom Jessica Alba chose red mirror sunglasses and statement jewelry for an edgy yet glamorous finishing touch.

彩色西装外套抢眼又百搭,上班休闲皆相宜。在众多的选择里我尤其偏爱宝蓝色,因为这个颜色既有活力又不失庄重,而且不分季节,也不挑肤色,刚好又是这个秋冬大热的颜色。上次我分享了一些春夏如何搭配宝蓝色西服的小贴士,这次我们从Emma Stone 和 Jessica Alba的这两个造型里学学在秋冬怎么穿它吧!

深色大地色系是秋冬最常见的颜色,宝蓝色和这些颜色搭配起来都非常出彩,比如你在Emma Stone 和 Jessica Alba身上看到的黑、灰和棕色。这些基本色和宝蓝色的搭配是我们每季都可以拿出来穿的组合,要穿出潮流感,就要靠配饰了。Emma Stone所选的有运动元素的针织帽和中性帅气的牛津鞋都是今年秋冬大热的单品。或者像辣妈Jessica Alba一样,用撞色的眩光太阳镜个性的金属饰品给经典的蓝黑搭配增加活力。

After 20 weeks, my belly literally grows every single day. I once sworn that I would never buy maternity clothes, but after hours of desperately searching and reworking in my closet, I finally gave up and realized that I need at least two maternity pieces: a pair of comfy maternity jeans and a basic black maxi dress (and I laughed when I read Garance Doré’s post)

Besides new clothing, I also need more maternity style inspirations. In case some of you moms-to-be have the same needs, I picked four of my favorite outfits (above) that cover dressy and casual occasions. For more ideas for formal occasions? Check out my previous “Pregnancy Style” entry here!

First two outfits from Stephanie LaCava and Kate Middleton are bright cheerful options. They are also great examples of how to rework the old pieces in our closet: The fit-and-flare lemon Roksanda Ilincic dress covered Stephanie LaCava’s baby bump; The dress-like red Marni coat (similar here here) that Kate Middleton worn almost 7 years ago still fits her growing belly.

The following two are more casual, everyday outfit ideas that we can easily recreate. I love the way they use accessories to brighten up the monochrome look and make boring maternity pieces more interesting, like the cute beanie, blue Oxford on Violaine Bernard and printed floral wrap on Stephanie LaCava.

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.

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!
