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!

Her look is sleek and modern, great for holiday parties or a date night.

how to wear white in winter, What to wear with a tweed   jacket, Street style, party outfit, fall/winter,   Blake Lively, Miranda Kerr, white jacket, tweed jacket,   white skirt, ankle booties, loafer, distressed jeans,   Valentino 'Grande Lock', turtleneck sweater,  On Blake Lively for Lucky magazine 2013: Giuseppe Zanotti   Fall 2013 Zip Ankle Boots,Flap bag by Giuseppe Zanotti,   white Split Skirt, white biker jacket, 	black turtleneck   sweater, mirrored aviator sunglasses,   On Miranda Kerr: Chanel cream tweed jacket, Stella   McCartney oversized cat eye sunglasses, white distressed   jeans, Valentino Grande Lock Bag,Prada leopard tassel   loafer, Anita Ko ring,  Longines La Grande watch,Photos: Blake Lively & Miranda Kerr;  Courtesy of luckymag.comsplashnews.com.

Wearing white in fall/winter is modern and fashionable, but can be quite challenging. The key is to balance it with dark, rich shades and prints, combining with warm and luxe textures,  like the black & leopard accents, and a mix of jacquard, tweed, leather and haircalf spotted on today’s featured ladies.

I also love how these two icons took their looks to the next level: Blake Lively gave her crisp monochrome ensemble a futuristic vibe with a silver bag and mirrored sunglasses while Miranda Kerr offset her ladylike tweed jacket with a pair of heavy distressed jeans and comfy loafers.

In Chinese: 这几季的潮流打破了色彩的季节感,春夏穿黑灰,秋冬穿粉或白已经不是什么新鲜事了,但是寒冷的季节穿这么浅的颜色还是很具挑战性的。搭配的关键在于用深暗色调、和秋冬常见的动物纹以及温暖的材质来增加季节感,像Blake Lively 和 Miranda Kerr今天的这两个造型里看到的黑色和豹纹的单品,以及提花、粗呢、皮革和马毛等颇具温暖感的材质。

此外,个性的配饰或者有强烈对比的组合也能提升整个造型的新意和潮流感,比如Blake Lively用银色的手拿包和同色的眩光太阳镜给经典的黑白造型以未来感;Miranda Kerr则用一条破洞牛仔裤平底鞋把典雅的花呢夹克穿出了带有些许庞克风的随意街头感。
