Having a 4 month-old son, I barely have time to get dressed. No-brainer black ensemble is my go-to. How to spicy it up, avoid that tired-mommy look? Two words: details and accessories.

As showed on Heidi Klum above, the combination of denim/leather on her pants, the side buttons on her boots, the fur collar on her coat make the outfits anything but boring. Trendy sunglasses, scarlet lips and hot It bags add the right amount of glam.

These outfits are great for any age,especially handy for busy moms. Change the leather pants with straight-leg trousers or a pencil skirt, you can wear these to the office too.

In Chinese: 当了妈妈后,根本没有时间考虑每天穿什么。一身黑最简单,又不怕脏。但是怎么穿出辣妈味呢?

两个关键词:细节和配饰。比如Heidi Klum这两身造型里牛仔拼接的皮裤侧边有排扣设计的踝靴、白色皮草领的大衣等让原本普通的黑色单品潮味十足。在配饰上,眩光镜片精致的红唇、或大热的设计师手包等都能瞬间让普通的搭配脱颖而出。

这两个造型不分年龄,而且尤其适合忙碌的妈妈们。把皮裤换成西装裤或铅笔裙,就能穿去办公室了。

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。

My fondness for anything gingham was literally revived when I spotted this photo from Vogue. Since Gustav III first created gingham as a style for interiors back to 18th century, this simple, minimalist print that combined Rococo with Neo-Classicism never goes out of style. Today, I featured two of my current favorite looks incorporated gingham, hope they inspire you to update yours.

Unlike the born-with-it modern vibe of stripes, gingham naturally has a retro, country flair. To make it fresh, style it with your favorite basic staples, be it skinny jeans, leather leggings, black cashmere sweater or sharp blazer, then spice up the whole look with trendy accessories, like the white cut-out pump and lace-up Oxford on today’s featured stars, both very of-the-moment.

These two looks are easy to adopt and very versatile: add a well-tailored jacket to SJP’s outfit, or change Olivia Palermo’s Oxford to a classic black pump, then add a structured tote, you can easily transform these two casual chic looks to polished, office-ready outfits.
