Desk to Dinner

One reason I really admire Miranda Kerr’s style is the simplicity and versatility, especially after she became a mom. Take these two outfits for example, I can easily picture her wear the left one with a ballet flat or loafer for playing with Flynn, then change her red scalloped pump for business meetings (with an outerwear that is stored in her roomy tote to put on when in the air-conditioned office). In the afternoon, simply change the dressy trousers and heels with a flowy maxi skirt and flat sandals, she looks dinner-ready, and the outfit will be comfy enough for an after-dinner walk too.

In Chinese: 熟悉的读者都知道我非常钟爱米兰达·可儿(Miranda Kerr)的穿衣风格,一个重要的原因是她的造型非常简约而且只需要简单的变化就能适合各种场合,很适合忙碌的上班族,尤其是她自己当了妈妈以后的那些出街造型。比如今天的这两个,左边的搭配换上芭蕾平底鞋或乐福鞋,就可以和儿子去公园玩,换上她的这双侧边有水波装饰的红色低跟鞋,加上放在大包里的外套,就可以去办公室了。下午只要简单地把裤子换成飘逸的雪纺长裙,加上平底凉鞋,和一抹红唇,把长发放下来,就可以去约会了,饭后散步时也看起来清爽舒适又漂亮。

Throwback 70’s: Flared Jeans

Thanks to her slick middle-parted hair, structured tote and minimal detailed tops, Miranda Kerr made this 70’s flared jeans new and fresh. If you also favor this silhouette, I recommend looking for a pair lies somewhere between a flare and a bootcut. It’s flattering and very versatile. The length is also crucial. Wearing a crisp white trousers with frayed ends is not cool. Spend some time in front of the mirror, with the platform you plan to wear with the jeans, find the right length which should be within an inch or less of the ground. Some recommend wearing flared jeans with flats, I would say do so only if you have supermodel legs, but even super model like Miranda Kerr still went for platforms.

In Chinese: 喇叭裤是70年代风的代表。超模米兰达·可儿(Miranda Kerr)搭配上极简的大包和利落剪裁的衬衫,再加上流行的中分,把复古的喇叭裤穿出了现代感。喇叭裤是非常修身的一种裤型,如果你想尝试,我推荐微喇的版型,看起来像喇叭裤,又不那么夸张,既能拉长身形又非常实用,适合很多场合。裤长也非常重要,以离地半公分到一公分为宜。至于鞋子的选择,我个人还是倾向于高防水台的跟鞋,除非你有模特般的身高,但就像你今天看到的,即使是超模也选了恨天高,不是吗?

Affordable Style

When a celebrity is spotted wearing a piece from a high-street brand despite all the luxurious options she has, that piece is worth to take note, especially like style savvy Beyoncé. This striped number by Topshop has been seen on several celebrities. I especially love the way Margot Robbie & Beyoncé Knowles worn (above): Instead of adding a pop of color, they chose classic black and white for chic, sophisticated ensembles. Luminous skin and the confidence are their best accessories.

In Chinese: 大明星们通常不缺各大奢侈品牌的赞助,所以每次看到她们选择平价单品,而且极有质感和风格时,我都忍不住收藏,尤其是本身很有时尚品味的明星。上面看到的这两个出街造型里的条纹裙来自高街品牌Topshop, 前后已经有三四位明星都穿过了。我尤其喜欢上面的这两个造型,不加任何的颜色,简单的黑白配上经典优雅的鞋子和包包,自信的态度和好皮肤就是最好的配饰。
