Lines have a great impact on camouflaging or enhancing our body shape. The effect is most clearly highlighted by high-contrasting stripes. Take this striped dress on Taylor Swift for example: the variegated lines, combined with strategically placed black side panels, result a visually slimming look. 

Accessories, once again, played a big part in their outfits: a demure, sophisticated handbag and cool, retro oxford pumps balanced the sexiness of Taylor Swift’s mini body-con dress, while Olivia Palermo chose a structured colorblock satchel and lux calf-hair print slipper to elevate the casualness of her stripe tee.

In Chinese: 线条对整体着装的影响很大,对比强烈的条纹尤其能说明这一点。拿小天后泰勒·斯维芙特(Taylor Swift)的这条裙子来说吧:它的条纹从胸线以下变得密集起来,再加上侧边黑色的拼接,视觉上非常显瘦。

除了线条的作用,这两个造型再一次提醒了我们配饰的影响力:泰勒·斯维芙特(Taylor Swift)优雅的裸色方包学院风的牛津包鞋平衡了她包身迷你短裙的性感;奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)则用有趣又有正式感的撞色手包和波纹马毛鞋提升条纹T恤的休闲感。

Spice Up Black and White

Black/white graphic is by far my favorite trend. The classic and simple palette gives us a lot of room to play with textures, patterns and accessories. Here, Olivia Palermo made her monochromatic outfit anything but boring by mixing various stripes, juxtaposing with leopard, and bringing in modern fringes. When you resist the temptation of adding bright colors, it rewards you a much bigger stage to express yourself!

In Chinese: 重新回潮的黑白几何图案是我的最爱。简单经典的色彩组合赋予了我们更多的空间去体验不同材质、印花和配饰碰撞的别样感觉。今天的这个造型里,奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)通过运用不同走向和宽窄的条纹、以及条纹与豹纹流苏的混搭等把黑白变得生动有趣、潮感十足。克制住加入亮色的冲动,让黑白做主角,它会回赠予你一个更广阔的表达创意的舞台!

Elevate Your Basics

When I read the news that it took designer Marcus Wainwright a whole year to develop the now widely loved Boy Tee, I was not surprised. I’m very picky when it comes to white tees, and always on the hunt for that perfect one, I know how hard it is. When I find the right one, I do not hesitate to stock up even before I check the price tag–For me, it’s priceless: A perfect white tee makes me feel great every time I wear it; It goes with everything, fits any occasion and can be worn year round, on its own or layered. It makes dressing in the morning less daunting, because I know that when everything else fails, I can always count on my perfect white tee. Besides my new favorite Boy Tee, J.Crew and T by Alexander Wang are also my go-to places for the right one. Next on my wishlist? This make-you-feel-like-a-million-bucks one by The Row.

In Chinese: 当我前段时间在时尚资讯里读到瑞格布恩的设计师马可斯·温莱特(Marcus Wainwright)花了一年的时间研发设计了这款现在被时尚博主们热捧的男孩风白T恤时,我一点也不惊讶,因为作为白T恤的狂热追捧者,我深知找到一款完美的白T恤有多难。如果有合适的,我会不计价格地囤起来。对我来说,衣橱里必不可少的单品里第一件就是完美的纯白T恤:它和任何单品都可以搭配而且几乎可以穿去任何场合(像红毯或正式晚宴等场合当然需要其它单品的辅助),而且四季都能穿。有了一件完美的白T在衣橱,出门前少了很多紧张,因为当感觉穿什么都不对的时候,把它拖出来准没错。J.CrewT by Alexander Wang也是我囤货的必去之地。我理想的终极白T恤?这件让你穿上感觉像百万富翁的奢华版!
