Floral prints are as classic as stripes and polka dots. They have been embraced by people of all ages (from teenage girls to their grandmas). Since some floral patterns do have the potential to make us look tacky, I always look for those with a retro flare and a sophisticated color palette, like the two featured below. Then use modern and edgy accessories to add urban chicness to the look. The on-trend birkenstock, mesh booties, streamlined bag and cat-eye sunglasses seen on today’s featured stars are the best illustrations.
In Chinese: 花朵是和条纹、圆点一样经典的图案，而且老少皆宜。但是花朵穿不好容易显得俗气。我个人喜欢寻找那些色调淡雅的有复古风情的印花单品，比如下面看到的这两条裙子，搭配上有现代感的元素形成冲突。今天的这两位偶像身上看到的勃肯鞋、网纱踝靴、简约的两用包以及猫眼太阳镜等就是这种混搭的最好诠释。

A bright coat is so cheerful and uplifting! It instantly makes our wardrobe basics, like tees and jeans, look fresh and spring-ready. As you can see above, under 20 Elle Fanning chose sheer-panel blouse and distressed jeans to make her look youthful while 44 year old hot mom Gwen Stefani stayed comfy yet pulled together with maternity skinnies and long top. These looks are great for the office, shopping, hanging out with friends and more…You can also switch the pants to shorts or skirts to create more equally chic ensembles.
In Chinese: 色彩有神奇的疗愈和传递能量的力量。一件亮色的外套能瞬间给我们带来好心情，也让简单的T恤和牛仔裤变得更吸引眼球。像上面的这两个造型：不到20岁却在好莱坞和时尚界都炙手可热的Elle Fanning用有透视元素的衬衫和破洞牛仔裤给她的绿色箱型大衣和彩色铆钉包鞋加入了年轻感；44岁的辣妈和乐坛天后Gwen Stefani则用舒适的长上衣和牛仔裤使她的孕期出街舒适又时尚。这两个搭配不分年纪，而且适合不那么严肃的办公室、购物或和朋友聚餐等很多场合。把牛仔裤换成短裤或裙子还可以衍生出更多变化。
