I have a love/hate relationship with thigh high boots. I love their sexy and tough vibe and the fact that they provide extra warmth and additional coverage for our legs. But being a petite (I’m only 5’1 ft), I didn’t think I could pull them off. After a few weeks of trying, now I don’t want to take mine off! I even use my Mary Jane pump and thigh-high socks to create the similar look when it’s too hot to wear boots.

Here are my four main considerations for hunting and styling thigh high boots: Buy suede ones instead of leather, since suede has a matte finish which can slim our legs; The perfect pair should fit like a glove, not too tight, not too loose, especially around the ankle area; When wearing them with skirts or shorts, make sure there are a few inches between the hemline and the top of your boots; Finally, balance the sexiness of a thigh high boot with some masculine touches, like the menswear-inspired coat and newsboy cap showed on the models above.

In Chinese:大腿靴性感又保暖,但我却既爱又恨,因为我个子比较小,总觉得这种靴型会切断腿形。但进入秋季后尝试着穿搭了几周,发现只要在选购和搭配时注意一些小细节和小技巧,娇小的女孩也可以穿,不但不会破坏线条,还会拉长腿型。

首先在选择时,我发现麂皮更能修饰腿型,因为相比有光泽的牛皮,麂皮吸光的特性使腿部看起来更收缩;其次在试穿时,不能太松或太紧,尤其不能盖住脚踝本身的线条;最后,在搭配时,尤其是配裙子或短裤时,要露出一些皮肤,裙子或短裤的边不能盖住靴子的上缘,因为视线会停留在靴筒的高度,视觉上靴筒盖住的地方好像都是小腿的长度,无形中就大大拉长了腿型。另外搭配时可以用这一季最流行的男孩风的单品去中和大腿靴太过女人味的感觉,比如在超模Rosie Huntington-Whiteley和Miranda Kerr身上看到的男士大衣和报童帽等。天气不太冷时,也可以用高跟鞋大腿袜打造一个类似大腿靴的性感又可爱的造型!

To continue on from our last conversation about preparing for the coming ‘party season’, if you are not into colors, a never-goes-out-of-style LBD will surely fit your needs. Hard to believe that with such a simple color and shape, the little black dress is constantly reinvented each season. This time, it is combined with the hottest peek-a-boo trend as you can see on the featured icons above.

When it comes to styling, balance the sexy cutouts with demure knee-grazing hem. Keep accessories simple and quiet, let the dress take center stage. As long as you choose the cutouts wisely, you can rock these looks no matter the age.

In Chinese: 延续我们上次的派对着装话题,如果明快的色彩不是你的菜,那么经典的小黑裙一定符合你的诉求。提起小黑裙,很难相信最基本的黑色和简单的裙装剪裁能在设计师的手中被一次次重新演绎,每季都给我们惊喜。

这次的小黑裙带上了大热的镂空和绑带细节,因此最好选择及膝或膝下的裙长以平衡露肤度,鞋子和手包等配饰的选择上也尽量简单低调,让视线集中在漂亮的剪裁上。 只要根据自己身材的优缺点明智地选择镂空的大小、位置,那么无论什么年纪,穿这种小黑裙都会性感又端庄。

Run out of ideas for styling your black pieces? Miranda Kerr & Olivia Palermo wowed us again by spicing up their basic black pieces with hottest trends & to-die-for accessories. Here is how:

Add one trendy, eye-catching print to break up a dark ensemble. The tartan jacket on Miranda Kerr echoes the punk trend but in a more sophisticated way while the marble printed top on Olivia Palermo introducing the next hottest pattern spotted on the latest runway.

Use accessories to update basic black pieces while giving them different characters: The Isabel Marant booties and classic quilted leather tote add an edgy yet sexy vibe to Miranda Kerr’s outfit; A camouflage tassel pump and studded white bag add unexpected juxtaposition to Olivia Palermo’s city chic look.

Play with textures: mix elegant tweed with tough leather, juxtapose delicate silk against chunky knit or heavy metal. Be creative and have fun!

黑色的单品我们每年秋冬都会穿,这一季怎么穿出新鲜、时尚感又不失我们自己的风格?Miranda Kerr 和Olivia Palermo最近在巴黎时装周期间的这两个糅合了最新潮流趋势的造型能给我们一些灵感:

在基本的黑色look中引入一两个最新的图案打破黑色的沉闷感。Miranda Kerr身上的呢格纹是经典的庞克元素,这一季设计师赋予了庞克风精良的都市感。Olivia Palermo所穿的大理石图案也将是下一季的热捧。

用配饰给经典款的黑色单品加入更多当季的元素,也能方便快速地变换风格。Miranda Kerr所穿的目前最受追捧的来自Isabel Marant的尖头拼接踝靴和香奈儿包呼应了皮裤和丝袜搭配的酷帅和性感;Olivia Palermo的迷彩流苏高跟鞋和铆钉包也使原本优雅的look更具时尚和个性。

混搭不同的材质也能让整身暗色调的搭配更富层次感,比如用优雅的粗呢外套去搭配酷帅的皮裤或二手的破洞牛仔装,用精致的丝缎或蕾丝搭配宽松的针织衫或铆钉装饰的庞克风配件等。
