Crisp white pants can instantly make an outfit fresh and cool. You don’t need a perfect body to wear them, here is how to rock your white pants with confidence: For body hugging style like a pair of white skinny jeans, tie a shirt or cardigan around the waist to cover the butt area, where most of us are not comfortable with. It will come in handy when you enter a freezing air conditioned office or store. If you want a more relaxed look or need extra coverage around thigh area, this season’s sports trend is for you. Pick a pair of white cargo pants or joggers, balance the baggy shape with a fitted top. Last but not least, an eye-catching shoe will help draw attention away from your legs. The mules and sneakers/slippers seen on these two hot models are the most covetable styles this season, get your hands on before they are gone!

In Chinese: 清爽的白色裤装是夏日必备单品。很多人觉得白裤子很挑战身材,其实运用一些小的搭配技巧,没有好身材也能把白裤子穿出神采。比如最挑身材的白色紧身牛仔裤,在腰间系上一件牛仔衬衫或针织衫,既能盖住我们最在意的臀形,又能拉长腿部线条,在空调房里还能保暖。如果你对自己的大腿不满意,不太敢挑战紧身裤,那就试试这一季流行的运动风吧。挑选一条白色的运动裤,搭配上合身的上衣中和运动裤的松垮。另外,一双美鞋也能很好地分散腿部的注意力。这两位超模穿的穆勒鞋套穿运动鞋是这一季最红的两双,在售罄前快下手吧!

Update Your Denim

A fashionable wardrobe is not completed without denim. For an evergreen material like this, I always look for interesting designs,  like the patchwork effect, lived-in vibe and fun overall silhouette seen on today’s featured denim pieces. I love how Olivia Palermo used this humble fabric to offset her graceful midi skirt, chic pinstripe shirt and glamorous metallic accessories, resulting two effortlessly chic outfits that are great for many summer activities: from a Sunday brunch, to a drive-in movie night, anywhere you want to stay comfortable with glamour.

In Chinese:   每一个时尚达人的衣橱里一定少不了各式的牛仔单品。对于这种不退流行的经典元素,就要在设计和剪裁上寻找新意,比如今天的这些牛仔单品上看到的不同水洗色的拼接完美的做旧效果以及正流行的连体廓形等等。牛仔的经典在于它和任何材质都可以混搭,从秋冬的皮草到春夏的雪纺。奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)就用低调的牛仔来平衡这几季流行的大伞裙,用童趣的背带裤中和男士衬衫的硬朗。这两个造型舒适又有型,适合很多夏日活动,比如约会或看汽车电影等。

Throwback 70’s: Flared Jeans

Thanks to her slick middle-parted hair, structured tote and minimal detailed tops, Miranda Kerr made this 70’s flared jeans new and fresh. If you also favor this silhouette, I recommend looking for a pair lies somewhere between a flare and a bootcut. It’s flattering and very versatile. The length is also crucial. Wearing a crisp white trousers with frayed ends is not cool. Spend some time in front of the mirror, with the platform you plan to wear with the jeans, find the right length which should be within an inch or less of the ground. Some recommend wearing flared jeans with flats, I would say do so only if you have supermodel legs, but even super model like Miranda Kerr still went for platforms.

In Chinese: 喇叭裤是70年代风的代表。超模米兰达·可儿(Miranda Kerr)搭配上极简的大包和利落剪裁的衬衫,再加上流行的中分,把复古的喇叭裤穿出了现代感。喇叭裤是非常修身的一种裤型,如果你想尝试,我推荐微喇的版型,看起来像喇叭裤,又不那么夸张,既能拉长身形又非常实用,适合很多场合。裤长也非常重要,以离地半公分到一公分为宜。至于鞋子的选择,我个人还是倾向于高防水台的跟鞋,除非你有模特般的身高,但就像你今天看到的,即使是超模也选了恨天高,不是吗?
