Do you have a delicate, exquisite dress or skirt that has been sitting in the closet waiting for that special moment, which might never come? Well, it’s time to pull it out. Be creative and experimental, make your evening skirt day-time appropriate by teaming it with jumpers, sweatshirts, tees or a bomber jacket.

Here, as a nod to the hottest crop-top trend, Olivia Palermo & Jessica Alba picked black short sweaters to highlight their beautiful light-colored skirts and make them pre-fall appropriate. With an evening clutch and embellished pump, Olivia Palermo’s combo is great for a night-out or an event. Jessica Alba dressed the similar combo street chic by accessorizing it with a hobo bag and fabulous sunglasses.

From the bags they carried, you can get an idea of this season’s bag trend: yes, instead of making a statement, this season, let your bag blend in and be part of your outfit.

不知道你是不是像我一样,衣橱里躺着几条精美的丝绸或刍纱的长裙,等着某个特别的日子再拿出来穿,但几年过去了,还躺在衣柜底,一次都没碰过。今天的两个造型或许能给我们灵感,多做些尝试,搭配日常穿着的单品,比如毛衣T恤帽衫运动夹克,让这些看似特别场合才穿的单品多见些阳光。

纯美的颜色、独特的细节设计和精美的面料让Olivia Palermo和 Jessica Alba所穿的这些淡雅的长裙公主般梦幻。搭配上大热的短款毛衣,平衡了它们的隆重感,深色调也使这身look更适合渐冷的天气。通过变换配饰就能让这些搭配适合不同场合:可以像Olivia Palermo一样加上精美的手拿包和水晶装饰的高跟鞋,适合约会、参加晚宴或其它正式活动;或像Jessica Alba所示范的,加上休闲风的斜挎包、太阳镜凉鞋,打造适合白天出街,轻松又抢眼的look.

提到包款,与以往抢眼的设计不同,今年秋冬服装唱主角,所以包款的选择上,要能与服装相呼应,融为一体。

Simple Chic: Jeans and Studded Booties

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。

White blazer is truly a wardrobe essential that we can pull out and restyle every spring/summer. This particular style by Rebecca Minkoff has been so popular. Besides the impeccable cut, structured silhouette, silk material and variety of color options (also here here), what attracted me the most are the unique shawl lapels, pointed hemline and high-low length. No wonder it has been loved by celebrities, trendsetters and fashion bloggers.

Today’s featured looks from Olivia Palermo showed us how versatile it is: It can polish up a laid back, distressed-jeans-with-ballet-flat combo or tone down bold colorful silk-cami-and-sheer-maxi-skirt look. For casual basic look like above right, one or two eye-catching accessories can instantly elevate it, be it a statement bag, an opulent necklace or a pair of trendy sunglasses; For a busy bold look like above left, it’s better to keep all the pieces in a similar color family: the yellow cami, brown printed maxi skirt, strappy sandals and metallic belt are all warm, rich color tones, thus they blend harmoniously without overwhelming.
