Lace-up sandals are the hottest style this season. I love how model of the moment Kendal Jenner made her Tom Ford gold lace up version daytime cool with a denim dress and aviator sunglasses, and night time glamorous with a semi sheer romper and clean cut white coat.
In Chinese:  这种罗马式的绑带鞋是本季最夯款。今天我选了卡戴珊家族的当红超模肯达尔·詹娜 (Kendall Jenner)的两个造型展示怎么在白天出街和晚上派对搭配这种鞋。她的这双金色绑带高跟鞋来自汤姆·福特 (Tom Ford)。搭配上牛仔裙,马尾和飞行员眼镜,休闲和酷帅中又不失性感,正式的场合则可以配上裙装或像她一样搭上连身装和及简设计的轻薄外套。

For me, her collections are my “Casual Chanel”: if at formal and elegant side, Chanel tweed suits are my ultimate choices, then at casual and relax side, I will go with Isabel Marant. Her collections are fashionable yet practical, feminine yet edgy, casual yet chic.

Many pieces she designed are truly timeless: the trench coats, the knits, the shirt dresses… but today, I want to dedicate this post to my favorite: the ankle boots, especiallylight colored ones.

They are great transitional pieces to carry us between seasons; the nude color can elongate our legs; the comfy design is perfect for outdoor activities; the chic style can bring us from day to night.

Tons of celebrities chose Isabel Marant’s ankle boots. Among them, I especially appreciate the ways Miranda Kerr styles hers. Below are ways she wore them with denim pieces from jacket to mini skirt:

Miranda Kerr paired her Isabel Marant booties with a variety of denim pieces
