Nobody wears fur coats better than Kate Moss. She pairs hers with distressed jeans, denim cutoffs, casual T-shirts or even maxi dresses for care-free day-time looks, and with mini skirts, dresses or lingerie for sexy & glamorous night out looks.

Today’s two outfits of her are perfect examples of how to wear fur coats for fall/winter parties: Since a fur coat is such a strong statement piece, keep the others simple and quiet, like the black LBDs, classic bag and basic pumps showed on Kate Moss; Balance the bulkiness of fur with fitted bottoms or bare legs; Offset its formality with edgy elements and imperfect makeup, like Kate’s bad-girl-vibe leather dress and her signature tousled tresses.

All these pieces are fashionable yet classic wardrobe staples that worth to invest in and will accompany us many years, together they result outfits that are smarter balanced, great for any age!

In Chinese: 在我看来,没有人比Kate Moss更会穿皮草。她会配上牛仔、皮裤、海魂衫等打造白天出街的轻松又有气场的造型;晚上参加派对时则把皮草大衣随性地裹在紧身小黑裙外,保暖又性感。

今天所选的她的这两个皮草大衣的造型就很适合秋冬的派对或约会。因为皮草外套本身就是很有存在感的单品,所以搭配时尽量选择线条和颜色简单的单品,比如Kate Moss身上的小黑裙、经典款的小香包优雅的高跟鞋等。贴身的下半身可以降低皮草大衣的臃肿感。同时要加入一些年轻化的元素给皮草“减龄”,比如单宁、皮革条纹等。略凌乱的发型和这一季流行的“不完整”的妆容等都能给一贯感觉老气的皮草增加潮流和随性感。

这两身造型中搭配到的皮草大衣、小黑裙和经典的红底鞋等都是衣橱必备的单品,不退流行,值得我们去投资,而且在各个年龄段都能穿。

Outfit-Maker: Statement Skirts

An outfit that mixes something opulent and exquisite with pieces that are austere, plain or casual is what I always love and get inspired by. Today’s featured outfits of Blake Lively & Jamie Chung above perfectly interpreted that:

Highlight a bold, embellished eye-catching skirt with neutral, understated pieces and minimal accessories, resulting a pulled-together yet effortless chic outfit. After all, we are in this era with blurred borders. (I knew it was a dress on Blake Lively, but you got my point)

An outfit that exudes a bit of everything–modern, sharp, sensual, laid-back, sometimes a little sporty–is not only attractive but also practical too:  A tailored blazer and structured satchel can make this combo office-friendly; A flat or sneaker with a bomber jacket and baseball cap can transform it into day-time chic look, and the list goes on…

In Chinese: 混搭衣橱里已有的单品,尤其是那些乍看起来不属于一个“世界”的,是我平时最喜欢看到的搭配,也是给我灵感最多的。这样的组合不仅令人耳目一新,而且能最大限度地增加每件单品的使用频率。

在参加派对或其它重要的社交场合时,一条有装饰感和设计感的裙子必不可少,搭配同样华丽的上装往往显得太过正式、繁复,而且缺乏新意,选择一件简约的白衬衫或者T恤反而清新自然,脱颖而出。

这么美的裙子当然不能只留在“重要场合”穿,其实搭配上利落的西装外套和公文包,就能给无聊的上班着装增加些风情,换上帆布鞋和今季大热的棒球帽,就能轻松自信地应对周末的各种休闲场合了。

Party Looks: Sweet Day or Seductive Night

What comes along with our full-swing social calendar is the constant conundrum: “what to wear?” Today, I picked two glamorous party-perfect outfits that are great for most warm weather events: sweet and demure for daytime, sexy and seductive for night-time.

Miranda Kerr has the ability to seamlessly blend hot trends with her signature glamorous style. I think the key is mixing new with old, mixing unexpected things with familiar elements. For example: choose a mirror floral print or embellished lace dress that’s in classic, sleek sheath or slim pencil silhouette; offset bold, bright pieces with quiet, classic items like a black bag or simple pump.

As always, balance is key. Take a hint from Miranda Kerr: If you already choose a printed dress and bright shoes, keep bag neutral and jewelry to a minimum for a fresh yet sweet daytime look; If you want to go bold for night, like the above right look of Miranda Kerr, opt for a bold dress, statement jewelry and scarlet lip, then keep the color palette simple and sophisticated.
