For the coming parties, if you want some demure and graceful outfit inspirations, look no further than Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, who is the epitome of elegant dressing.

She knows what suits her best and sticks with it. As you can see above, the cinched waist dresses highlight her tiny waist. The just-above-the-knee length combined with coordinating shoes is prim, flattering and leg-elongating.

When in muted colors like the navy and brown showed above, she uses complementing accessories to add rich textures to her ensembles; Whereas when in bright colors like the cobalt blue and bright red above, she keeps the silhouette simple for a modern, sleek vibe.

In Chinese: 先前我们分享了前卫的数码印花裙经典的小黑裙,今天来看看优雅的A字裙吧。说起优雅,凯特王妃一定会是先冒入我们脑海的时尚典范。她很清楚自己的身材优势,上面的这几个造型中都能看到的收腰款裙装或裙式大衣是她最常穿的。齐膝或膝上一两公分的裙长既显瘦又端庄。简约的一件式洋装或同色系的上下装,搭配裸色或同色的高跟鞋也是她显高又显瘦的小技巧。

另外,当她选择低调的中性色或暗色调的服装时,会选用不同材质的配饰来丰富整体造型,比如前两个造型里看到的麂皮和丝、棉以及锦缎的搭配。反之,当她选择亮色系的服装时,会偏向于剪裁利落的款式简单的配件来增加现代感。

Small details make a huge difference, especially in fashion world. More often, it’s the little things, accessories or splashes of color, liven up an outfit while tie everything together, as showed above: A spike bracelet edges up a ladylike dress; A mustard heel adds fun to black/white polka dots; A red stiletto pops against a neutral palette; A layered pearl necklace balances the youthful stripes; A peplum hem updates a classic pencil skirt, let alone that bold, delectable hot pink hue!

In Chinese: 细节决定成败,这句老话更应验在我们的日常着装中,很多时候正是一些小配饰或者点缀其间的那一抹亮色让我们的搭配脱颖而出,就像今天的这组给了我很多搭配灵感的图集中所展示的一样:庞克风格的配饰冲淡了裙装的甜腻,彩色的跟鞋给波普图案增添了更多趣味和活力,亮红的绑带高跟鞋让中性色的套装不再单调,富于层次感的珍珠项链平衡了条纹的休闲感,更不用说最近大热的这条亮粉色的花苞裙了!

Last time, we shared two ways to style a white blazer: one is bold, another is laid-back chic. If neither fit you, today’s looks you will surely love: two girly, sweet outfits from American’s sweetheart Reese Witherspoon.

Although she is already a mother-of-three, her looks always have a youthful, girly and optimistic flair. She knows her strength and what suits her best:

Start from the blazer, this particular one on her has a mix of subtle textures: twill, satin and leather (yes! the notched lapels are beautifully made of smooth white leather!) which give the whole look a luxurious, elegant and fashionable vibe.

White blazer creates the perfect canvas for beautiful bright colors. The fresh red printed skirt and blue dress on her are perfect for warm weather. To highlight her lean legs, she chose above-knee versions, with nude sandals, the total look is leg-elongating.

For women about her age, I would say don’t be afraid to try above-the-knee length skirt/dress, as long as you choose age-appropriate patterns/colors, and keep your arms covered with a cardigan or a well-tailored jacket.

Last but not least, accessories are great to keep up with trends without being overdone, like the white IT bag, safety chain cuff, strappy sandals and layered necklaces you see on the star.
