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。

Continuing our talk about fall pastel trend, Today I want to share with you two more looks that are great for the coming parties and get-togethers.

To balance the pretty and conservative baby blue pieces, Mandy Moore & Chelsea Leyland chose dark colors, tough materials, cool add-ons (love their booties and Leyland’s playful book clutch!). The overall looks are so modest and risky all at once!

Mandy Moore’s look especially amazed me: she is in head-to-toe Topshop, but looks so graceful, comfy and modern. It’s truly a look great for any age. So, for the moms out there, you are never too old to try Topshop!

In Chinese: 继续我们上次对于今年马卡龙色潮流的探讨,今天我想分享两个同样引入了粉蓝色单品的look,很适合参加年末的公司聚餐或和家人朋友的派对。

Mandy Moore 和 Chelsea Leyland为了平衡浅粉色的上衣和外套的甜腻感,加入了很多时尚的元素、硬朗的材质、酷帅或有趣味的配件(好喜欢她们的鞋子手包!)。我尤其喜欢Mandy Moore (上图左边)的这个造型,既得体又时尚,适合很多场合,什么年纪的人都可以穿。很难相信她身上的单品都来自很平价的Topshop。所以很多妈妈们,逛街时不要错过那些貌似只针对年轻人设计的高街品牌哦,你一定会有意外的收获!
