Blue/white is a long-loved combination. Here, these two angles use distressed jeans, blue chambray shirt and biker jacket to give this traditional palette a modern interpretation. Sexy pointy toe stilettos and covertable bags polish up the whole look.

White jeans are tricky to pull off. If you are confident about your legs, choose skinny version and go up one size. There’s nothing worse than white jeans that are too tight! If you are not comfortable with your thighs, or you simply prefer a relaxed look, this pair on Rosie Huntington Whiteley is right for you, slouchy on top, skinny at bottom.

In Chinese: 青花瓷般雅致的蓝白组合一向很受喜爱。今天所选的这两个超模的出街造型也用了这个色彩组合,但单品的选择——破洞牛仔裤单宁衬衫、麂皮夹克等——赋予了这个组合年轻感。混搭上性感的尖头高跟鞋IT包,潮感十足。

白色的牛仔裤一向不好驾驭。如果你对自己的腿型足够自信,选择包身款,但是我建议选大一号,没有什么比过紧的白色牛仔裤更煞风景了。如果你希望修饰肉肉的大腿或更偏爱随性的款式,罗西·汉丁顿-惠特莉(Rosie Huntington-Whiteley)身上的这条最适合不过了!

There are always lazy days when I don’t want to think about my outfit, just gravitate towards some simple yet trusty pieces, like a basic black top and favorite skinny jeans or denim shorts.

For omnipresent combo like this, as always, we need to rely on accessories to make them stand out. As Rosie Huntington-Whiteley & Miranda Kerr showed here: a chic fedora, right-on-trend studded booties, eye-catching yet practical ‘It’ bags, fabulous sunglasses or even just a wipe of red lipstick can make a big difference.

Another trick learned from Miranda Kerr: if you are self-conscious about a certain back area like I do when wearing hot shorts (you know what I mean), tie something around your waist: a denim shirt, leather jacket, hoodies or cardigan, which will add details to an outfit while super practical when temperature changes.

In Chinese: 总有那么几天,出门前懒得去想该穿什么,习惯性地把手伸向衣橱里那些我最信任的单品:简单的黑白T和牛仔裤。但是要把这些太过于平常的搭配穿出彩,配饰总是必不可少的。就像今天的这两位街拍偶像示范的一样:无论是一顶绅士风格的小礼帽,一双大热的铆钉踝靴,还是抢眼又实用的IT包,都能瞬间提升即使是最简单的搭配。

一个小技巧:如果你也有和我一样的困扰,穿热裤的时候总是担心后面太短,那就像辣妈Miranda Kerr学习,系一个外套在腰间,不但可以增加层次感,当气温变化的时候也能保暖。

Summer Shorts: Dress Up & Down

How to wear leather shorts, how to wear printed shorts, Olivia Palermo, street style, spring/summer outfit ideas 2013, denim chambray shirt, printed jacquard shorts, floral ballet flats, burgundy red tote, white shirt, brown leather shorts, cut out sandal,   On Olivia Palermo: Msgm Red and Pink Jacquard Woven shorts, 7 For All Mankind Slim Western Denim Shirt, Pretty Ballerinas floral ballet flats, Westward Leaning sunglasses, Louis Vuitton red duffel bag.   On Olivia Palermo: Zara leather shorts, Fendi 2Jours Medium Tote Bag burgundy, Aquazzura Sexy Thing Suede Cutout Sandal, white shirt; Photos: Olivia Palermo; Courtesy of bauergriffinonline.comzimbio.com.

We usually think of the shirt and shorts combo as a classic casual outfit choice, Olivia Palermo proved otherwise:

For the left look above, she balanced a casual chambray shirt with luxe, structured jacquard print shorts. As always, she finished off with an unexpected touch, in this case, a fun, summery floral ballet flats. This look is feminine yet fashionable, great for a casual date, a getaway, or downtown stroll.

For the right look above, she dressed up this classic combo by choosing urban chic staples: crisp white button down shirt, leather shorts and suede cut-out heel. This look is office-friendly, yet so easy to transform for night out simply by changing accessories.

As women, we always love leg slimming pieces, the loose shorts on Olivia Palermo are great examples. But this kind of shorts tends to exaggerate our hips, so take a hint from this style savvy, cinch your waist with a belt, which will make you look taller and slimmer.

How will you play with this combo? Share with me!
