The key for casual yet pulled-together outfits is getting the proportions right, as showed above, pair oversized chunky knit with leggings or team slouchy boyfriend jeans with fitted tops.

Blake Lively’s look is comfy yet sexy, great for brunches, a relaxed dinner, or hanging out with friends; Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s look is sporty and laid-back, perfect for running errands or holiday shopping.

A stylish hat is a great piece to throw on when you don’t have time to style your hair but still want to look polished.

This weekend marks the start of holiday shopping, here I want to share with you some of my favorite promotions that are going on right now:

Last but not least, the beloved 3.1 Phillip Lim mini Pashli satchel  is on sale here! As the perfect everyday bag, it’s a great gift for your mom, sister, BFF or stylish aunt!

Wish you all safe, happy and stress-free holidays. Good luck!

In Chinese: 今天的这两个look很适合假日季。Blake Lively的搭配舒适又不失性感,很适合和好友聚会,吃早午餐或者约会;Rosie Huntington-Whiteley的搭配则更休闲动感,很适合外出采购或逛街。

看起来慵懒休闲不等于邋遢,关键在于掌握好比例,比如穿宽松的大毛衣时搭配紧身的牛仔裤或内搭裤,相应地,搭配男友风的直筒牛仔裤或运动裤时,选择稍微贴身的上装。

另外,加入一些女性化的元素,比如漂亮的手包或高跟鞋,露出纤细的手腕脚踝等也是平衡过于休闲着装的好贴士。秋冬时帽子更是实用又能增加时尚感的小物,没有时间打理发型时,加上一顶有性格的帽子就可以美美地出门了。

黑色星期五标志着美国假日购物季的开始,上面我列了一些最吸引我的折扣促销和大家分享。祝我们都能度过一个健康、平安、轻松愉快的假日!

Holiday Party Outfit Ideas: Little Black Dress

Continuing the discussion of what to wear for holiday parties, if bold digital print dresses we shared last time aren’t your thing, then there is always a perfect little black dress fits your needs.

As you can see above: a lace embroidered version enhanced Olivia Palermo’s sweetness while a grid crew-neck version brought out Alexa Chung’s preppy and quirky flair.

Even with the two very similar Prada dresses, Kate Moss & Audrey Tautou pulled out totally different outfits: Kate Moss went for a girly, flirty vibe using colorful and playful eye-catching accessories whereas Audrey Tautou represented Parisian chic with elegant pump, minimal jewelry and sophisticated makeup.

In Chinese: 延续我们关于年末派对着装的话题,如果夸张、前卫的数码印花裙不是你的风格,那一定有一条小黑裙符合你的诉求。今天所选的4个小黑裙的造型就各有千秋:Olivia Palermo的蕾丝镶边的丝质小黑裙很符合她一贯甜美的风格,Alexa Chung的小圆领、带透明格子网纱的小黑裙则展现了她标志性的透着些许古灵精怪的学院风气质。

即使是非常相似的两条Prada小黑裙,搭配上不同的发式、妆容和配件,也会展现完全不同的风格: Kate Moss的彩色凉鞋和斑马纹手包给这条裙子注入了活泼和轻快的元素;Audrey Tautou则用优雅的黑色麂皮高跟鞋、极简的配饰和精致的妆容展现了巴黎女人的自信和优雅。

Off-duty Chic: Elevate Wardrobe Basics

I love analyzing model’s off-duty looks. Oftentimes, we see them on the most basic and simple wardrobe staples that get elevated by teaming with one or two key pieces: be it an IT bag, fabulous sunglasses, killer stilettos, scarlet lips, or just that confident attitude.

In Chinese: 我最喜欢超模的街拍造型,一个主要原因是她们常常能把我们衣橱也都有的最基本、最平常的单品穿出令人咂舌的效果,除了很棒的身材外,出色的配饰也是她们提升这些极简单品的关键,比如在她们身上常看到的最夯的设计师手包最酷的太阳镜或踝靴,别致的发型、妆容或者仅仅是她们自信从容的步伐和舍我其谁的态度。
