Happy 2014 everyone! How is your New Year’s Eve? With a little one needs to be nursed around the clock, I opted out of the hoopla and stayed at my warm home with loved ones.

Kick off the first day with two classic, cozy yet fashionable looks. Cable knit sweaters are very nostalgic for me, growing up seeing heavy snow every winter, I can’t live without them. How to update? Play with textures by pairing them with tough leather or flowy chiffon; Also incorporate trendy elements, like the pleats (prepare to see them a lot next spring), skirts in midi length, and punky zips or studs seen on today’s featured fashion experts.

In Chinese: 新年快乐!你的新年前夜是怎么度过的呢?带着襁褓里的宝宝,又赶上纽约气温骤降,我只好选择呆在家里,不过和家人在一起,其乐融融,也很惬意。

今天我选了两个非常经典又不失时尚感的搭配,都是和一件我们很熟悉的单品有关的,那就是人人都离不开的毛衣。这种从小穿到大的衣服怎么穿出潮流感呢?贴士一:混搭不同的材质,把厚重的针织和硬朗的皮革或飘逸的雪纺配在一起;贴士二:引入当季的流行元素,比如百褶裙(明年春夏会很火哦),复古的中长裙,或有庞克风的拉链、铆钉等。
