Can fashion be practical and comfortable? Absolutely, military jacket is a brilliant example of that. It’s a great piece to throw on year-round. It goes with everything from basic T-shirt and jeans to glamorous maxi dress or polished pencil skirt. It compliments almost any color (from neutrals like brown to brights like orange) and prints (like stripes, leopard or florals).

A great tip on styling utility jacket is adding a luxe or feminine touch for the boy/girl vibe. As you can see from Olivia Palermo above, the camo pants, sleek boots on her enhance the utility chic while a floral printed blouse, haircalf skinny belt, designer handbag, ballet flats adding that delicate, luxurious touch.

I especially appreciate her attention to details: the pushed up sleeves showed off her beautiful sheer blouse underneath, a skinny or vintage belt highlighted her tiny waist, the unbuttoned shirt revealed just right amount of skin…

In Chinese: 时尚和实用可以兼备吗?当然可以,军装风的外套就是很好的例子。耐穿又耐脏,可单穿可混搭,既可以配短裤、牛仔裤,和长裙、铅笔裙等搭起来也别有风味。颜色更是百搭,无论配棕色黑色等中性色还是明橘、亮红等饱和色,无论搭条纹、动物纹还是印花,都很好看。

因为这种外套本身就有男孩子的酷帅感,所以我喜欢搭配有柔美或奢华感的细节来提升品质感。就像我们在Olivia Palermo身上看到的:迷彩裤骑士靴呼应了军装外套的酷帅,精致的细腰带、奢华的手包丝质印花衬衫增加了女人味。

我尤其欣赏她对每一个细节的注意,比如把袖子略略推上去露出半透明的衬衫去和硬朗的外套做对比,把外套的扣子打开既有随意感又可以体现穿搭的层次,但是加一条腰带来强调腰线。深V的衬衫也展现了恰到好处的性感。

Winter White: Colorblock Coat & Red Accent

Thanks to the strong black and white trend, not only the traditional winter white shades like eggshell and cream are totally acceptable, the bright whites we usually see in summer are also can, and should be embraced in winter now. A crisp white piece can instantly make a monochrome look modern, sharp and chic.

Here, Miranda Kerr chose the classic white, blue and red color theme, while Lily Collins demonstrated the black & white simplicity. The faux fur coat on Lily Collins is colorblocked, combined with a black jumpsuit, making the stodgy fur youthful and flattering.

I’m glad that the red trend is back this fall. You can team it with almost any color, the combination of red and white is especially fresh and uplifting.

In Chinese: 感谢这几季强劲的黑白风,现在秋冬穿白色的概念已经完全被大家所接受了,而且色调上也不再局限于传统的米白、象牙白,连春夏常见的亮白色、银白色也完全四季皆宜了。

在色彩的搭配上,Miranda Kerr所穿的蓝、白、红以及Lily Collins身上极简的黑与白等都是经典的组合。我尤其喜欢Lily Collins的这件黑白撞色的皮草外套,和黑色的连身裤搭配起来,降低了皮草的正式感又能拉长腿型。

另外,今年红色又回潮了!就像小黑裙一样,每一个人一定有属于自己的那一款红。这个经典的颜色无论和中性的黑白灰,撞色的蓝、绿还是相近的粉或桔搭配起来都很漂亮,和纯白色配起来更是格外醒目。

Bold printed pants have been on trend since last year, with new elements added, such as pajama, geometric pattern and sporty trends, these beloved printed pants have been constantly reinvented.

I initially had reservations about this type of pants because they tend to make our legs look wider and shorter, but with more and more options for different prints, cuts and materials, we can totally nail this trend while looking slim and effortlessly chic. Gwen Stefani & Miranda Kerr showed us how:

Choose “smart” prints, like the Peige one on Gwen Stefani, it looks like her legs are the same width as the print, the black side stripes also help to slim her legs; Go for high waisted version, it’s more flattering, especially when you choose loose fit one like the pair on Miranda Kerr; Opt for shoes in the same color family as the pants or a classic pointy-toe pump, both will help elongate legs; Pair them with plain tops, let the pants do the talk.

花朵、几何图案的印花裤从去年开始就很流行了,这几季在加入了新的元素后,这种裤型更受欢迎。我刚开始对印花裤敬而远之,总觉得会显腿粗,但是随着选择越来越多,挑到图案抢眼又时尚,而且修饰身形的印花裤已经不是什么难事了,我们可以从Gwen Stefani 和 Miranda Kerr上面的这两个造型里学到一些挑选和搭配的小技巧:

选择“有心机”的图案,Gwen Stefani身上的这条就很有巧思,视觉上她的腿只有中间内侧的几何图案那么纤细,另外,侧边的两条黑色直条纹也像给腿部打了阴影,更加强了显瘦的效果。高腰款式是拉长腿部线条的不二选择,尤其是穿像Miranda Kerr的这种宽松横条纹裤。在鞋子的选择上,和裤身同色系的鞋或经典的尖头高跟鞋也能使腿看起来更修长。
