Structured blazer and distressed jeans go together like peanut butter and jelly, they compliment each other, and reflect today’s fashion: putting the two opposites together and blurring the boundaries of off-duty & on-duty.

I featured the above two looks incorporated this versatile yet universally flattering combo, showing how these two stylish icons put their own spin on it:

Miranda Kerr’s bow-embellished pointy toe loafer, enviable designer bag and her signature red lip elevate the look, adding a feminine and sophisticated touch to it, while Jessica Alba’s moody floral print top and must-have ankle booties lend an effortlessly chic and cool vibe to her monochrome ensemble.

西装外套破洞牛仔裤的混搭正体现了今天时尚的精髓,一切关乎平衡,把看似不同世界的东西放在一起,不断地挑战和创新,线上、线下,工作、休闲的着装界限已逐渐模糊,方便轻松转换以适应各种场合、并彰显个性的混搭方式越来越受到欢迎。

今天来学学怎么把这个“万能”的组合穿出自己的风格吧:Miranda Kerr的双色拼接的尖头平底鞋方便通勤或购物,又不失女人味,加上经典的爱马仕皮革包和她的标志性红唇,整身look既随性又不失精良的都市感;Jessica Alba的搭配更街头和“庞克”些,个性的黑白灰数位印花T奠定了整身look的基调,一双经典的踝靴更是这个季节必不可少的时尚单品。自然卷、裸妆,和黑色的美甲等细节也呼应了酷帅街头感。

Off Duty Chic: Tough Meets Sexy

how to wear leather pants or skirts, how to wear black, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, street style, balmain black blazer, white tee, black leather pants, Isabel Marant booties, jbrand black crop sweater, black leather mini skirt, GIORGIO ARMANI leopard bag,  On Rosie Huntington-Whiteley:Balmain Jacquard Double-Breasted Blazer,ANINE BING Leather Skinny Pant,Isabel Marant ‘Tacy’ low boots,Isabel Marant Étoile ‘Tee Almon’ T-shirt,Balenciaga Voyage 24H;  On Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: Isabel Marant TACY SUEDE AND CALF HAIR ANKLE BOOTS,J Brand Ready to Wear Griffith Cropped Knit Sweater,Oliver Peoples ‘Haley’ sunglasses,GIORGIO ARMANI stained leopard print handbag,Loewe x Junya Watanabe leather skirt,Photos: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley; Courtesy of justjared.com.

When investing in wardrobe staples, I always look for details: buttons on jackets, zippers on pants, buckles on shoes, pockets on plain tees, sleeve length of a sweater… those are what make all the difference. As you can see from today’s featured looks above of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: the pieces and colors on her are very simple, it’s the details and accessories make her outfits chic and fashionable.

Black blazer is definitely a must-have for everyone. This season, go for double-breasted version, extra bonus for those with exaggerated shoulders and nipped-in waist. As for the jumper? Cropped length is the way to go, as seen on SS2014 runways, this trend won’t go anywhere soon.

Isabel Marant is the “Chanel” for me. I’m obsessed with everything she designed, besides the beloved Caleen bootiesthis pair on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is edgy, sexy yet practical with the leather straps, pointy toe and easy walk heels. Combined with an It bag and fabulous sunglasses, these outfits can take you from the office to dinner.

在投资衣橱必备的基本单品时,我总是会找那些有细节设计的:外套上的纽扣,裤子上的拉链,鞋子上的搭环,T恤上的小口袋或毛衣袖子的长度等等都会在搭配时让整体更出彩。就像我们在Rosie Huntington-Whiteley的这两个造型中所看到的:她所选的单品和颜色都非常简单,但正是小细节及她所用的配饰使整个look简约而不简单,低调又彰显时尚品味。

黑色的西装外套是必备单品,这一季要投资的话,选择双排扣,有点垫肩而且略收腰的款式。至于秋冬我们都会屯的毛衣,短款是大热的版型,从刚结束的2014春夏时装周看来,这种潮流明年还会持续。

至于鞋款,每一双来自Isabel Marant的设计我都非常喜欢,除了极受追捧的Caleen铆钉踝靴外,Rosie Huntington-Whiteley所穿的这双也很值得投资,与Caleen的休闲感不同,尖头的设计,不同皮革的拼接和抢眼的搭环让这双踝靴个性中又不失女人味。配上经典的设计师包款,这些Look对于约会、出行、和朋友的聚餐以及不要求正式着装的办公室场合等都非常适合。

Office Glamour: Black and White

What I love most about fashion is that it’s forever evolving, but for this year’s black and white trend, I wish it could stay. It just so classic, versatile and practical. As long as you pick the right shape and accessories, this combo really can take you anywhere.

Here, Cameron Diaz & Victoria Beckham showed us how to take this trend to the office with the right balance of subdued glamorous and fashion-conscious:

Black pumps and bags are work wardrobe staples, this season, change them into white. Team with a knee-length or below the knee dress. A gold belt or watch adds just the right amount of luxe touch.

Victoria Beckham exemplifies the minimalist chicness. Her ‘secret’ lies in the details: from a sexy heel with metallic accent and flirty V-cut topline, a understated luxurious clutch to a deep V-neck shirt and an impeccable tailored jacket tossed over her shoulders.

In Chinese: 虽然不断的更新与变革是时尚永恒不变的主题,但是对于我喜欢的潮流,有时候真希望它能永恒不变,比如今年大热的黑与白。只要找到对的剪裁和配饰,这个经典的色彩组合可以让我们游走于任何场合。

就拿我们呆的时间最长的办公室来说吧,把以往常备的黑色高跟鞋和公文包换成白色,加上一条黑白拼接的及膝或膝下裙 (Cameron Diaz所穿的这条现在三折!),既符合潮流又优雅端庄。以极简现代风格著称的Victoria Beckham则在细节上脱颖而出,比如她脚上的这双金属跟的鞋(最喜欢楦头的桃心设计!)和低调优雅的手包,披在肩头的外套,低开领的衬衫以及精致的细腰带等。
