The High Low Mix

The unexpected high-low mix is always so refreshing and eye-catching! Humble materials like denim make intricate, glamorous pieces  daytime-appropriate, thus greatly expand our wardrobe, while making dressing in the morning more exciting and fun. Besides denim jacket, a few others can do the same too, like leather biker jacket, safari jacket, camo jacket/shirt… I consider them wardrobe essentials to invest in.

In Chinese: 奢华和朴实的碰撞总是令人耳目一新。比如普通得不能再普通的牛仔常会用来和华丽的丝、锦缎或繁复高贵的印花相配,让原本只在特殊场合穿的华服也能出街了,大大拓展了我们衣橱的利用率,也让搭配的过程更富想象力,更有趣。除了牛仔外,其它被时尚圈宠爱的,用于混搭的单品还有很多,比如机车夹克、军旅外套、迷彩衬衫等等都是实用好穿的衣橱必备。

Denim Jacket and Flowy Dress

How to wear a denim jacket; The Spring 2014 Backpack trend,  On Reese Witherspoon (left): Isabel Marant Étoile Zaggy Stripey Chiffon Dress, Current Elliott The Snap denim Jacket , Chloe 'Medium Paraty' Leather Satchel , Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses, Rag & Bone Harrow Nubuck Ankle Boot, STRAW FEDORA HAT ;  On Reese Witherspoon (right):ELIZABETH AND JAMES Sling textured-leather backpack, STRAW FEDORA HAT, Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses, Sea black and white dot printed dress, red ankle strap sandals; Photos: Reese Witherspoon; Courtesy of akmgsi.com.

Denim jacket and feminine dress is a beloved combo. Depend on the print of the dress and your choice of accessories, this combination can result in countless outfits with totally different styles. As seen from above on Reese Witherspoon: a semi-sheer chiffon dress, ankle boots and retro-vibe hobo bag channel  your inner Gipsy while a modern black and white dot dress, right-on-trend sling backpack, and saturated heels convey urban off-duty chicness. These looks are casual yet pulled-together, great for any age!

In Chinese: 牛仔外套和印花裙的搭配大家已经都不陌生了,但根据裙子的材质、图案、色调以及不同配饰的选择,这个“公式”其实可以衍生出很多种不同风格的造型,比如Reese Witherspoon的这两身:飘逸扎染雪纺裙配上牛仔踝靴复古感的包包,颇有波希米亚风的随性和闲适;经典的黑白及膝裙配上色彩明快的鞋子大热的流行包款则传达出现代的都市休闲感。这些造型不分年龄,从少女到辣妈都可以尝试,你会把这个组合搭出什么样的版本呢?

Leopard print is no doubt classic. I especially love the slightly brighter version on today’s featured ladies for its seasonless apparel. These two looks showed us perfectly how to style the same piece now and later when the temperatures rise.

I also love how they tamed this sexy wild print with preppy cable knits, laid-back denimfeminine ruffles and pleats and edgy ankle boots, respectively.

In Chinese: 豹纹是毋庸置疑的经典,但相比传统的豹纹,我更喜欢上面这两位荧屏明星所穿的亮色豹纹,更有现代感,不会到处撞衫,而且四季皆宜。这两个造型更启发了我们怎么“一衣多穿”,在春天即将到的时候多学些这样换季搭配的小技巧吧。

另外,我们总觉得豹纹太狂野,习惯用黑色去压,学学她们吧: 学院风毛衣休闲的牛仔小女人味的褶边以及硬朗的踝靴等都是平衡豹纹的好方法。
