The one thing I admire greatly about top designers is their ability to lead us toward the territory we could never have imagined, present us clothes we never think of but would deeply feel in love with. Take graphic sweatshirts for example, it is until Riccardo Tisci introduced bambi print on his Fall 2013 runway, we suddenly realized that we need a printed sweatshirt in our closet, one that can bring back our sweet childhood memory, can express our emotions,  or just want to add a cool, edgy, whimsical touch to our outfits.

In Chinese: 杰出的设计师总是能把我们带到从未尝试过的新领域,呈现给我们那些我们自己从未想过,但是却再也离不开的单品。拿这一季最热的卡通动漫图案的运动衫来说吧,如果不是在Riccardo Tisci 为Givenchy设计的2013秋冬系列中看到小鹿斑比出现,我可能根本不会意识到我的衣柜里缺少一件这样有趣的单品。很多高端和高街品牌也相继推出了各种各样的印花运动衫,它们是冬天厚重毛衣的最佳替代品,保暖的同时,这些有趣图案或者勾起了我们童年的美好回忆,或者能表达我们当下的情绪,给我们沉闷的秋冬装扮注入了活力。

Plaid, leopard, burgundy, emerald… these classic yet trendy shades and prints are naturally associated with fall/winter. Jessica Alba demonstrate how to style them for day and night:

Luxe texture ups the chic factor. For a day time look, a velvet blazer, calf hair flat, wool fedora and cashmere scarf make a sleeveless shirt and skinny jeans combo perfect for fall. A black tote grounded the rich colors.

For an event or a night out, slip on stilettos and grab a printed clutch, you are good to go. Here, Jessica Alba smartly made the sleeveless shirt cold weather approved simply by warming them up with rich shades, from the deep burgundy on her lips to the emerald-green on her toes.

In Chinese: 豹纹、格子、酒红、墨绿等这些词天然地和秋冬联系在一起。今天来看看Jessica Alba 怎么把这些色彩和图案搭配起来,无论应对时尚派对还是周末出街都优雅自如。

奢华的材质能给基础单品和暗沉色调增加层次、提升质感,比如对于春夏我们常穿的无袖衬衫和牛仔裤的组合,秋冬时加上天鹅绒的西装外套马毛或牛毛的鞋子包包、羊毛的小礼帽以及喀什米尔的围巾等。如果觉得身上的颜色和图案太多,就像Jessica Alba 一样用一个黑色的大包平衡一下吧。

参加派对或晚上外出时,只要把通勤的平底鞋换成高跟鞋,再加上一个豹纹手抓包和一抹红唇就可以了。但是要有应季感还要注意色调的选择,像Jessica Alba所选的墨绿色的鞋暗红的唇色就给原本清凉的look增加了温暖度。
