How to Wear Your Camel Coat

An impeccably tailored camel coat is definitely an investment piece we turn to every year when the temperature drops. How to give yours a fresh, up-to-date look this season? Look at today’s featured look of Miranda Kerr during Paris fashion week: leather leggings combined with modernized Mary Jane pumps, add an unexpected edgy twist to the familiar camel coat, while a slate blue cross body bag completing an oh-so-delicate color combination when placed against camel and black.

In Chinese: 驼色大衣是不退流行的经典,今年秋冬怎么穿出新意呢?看看米兰达·可儿在前不久结束的巴黎时装周期间的这个看似简单却独具心思的搭配吧:性感的深v小黑裙用皮裤作打底,加上被设计师尼古拉斯·盖斯奇埃尔(Nicolas Ghesquière)重新演绎的复古和时尚兼备的玛丽珍鞋,外套是流行又便于展示穿搭层次的“斗篷式”披法,优雅的灰蓝色链条包和温暖的驼色的组合则清新别致。

Master Class: Print Mixing

There are a lot we can learn from these two looks of Olivia Palermo, my favorite part is how she played with patterns by using the classic black/white/red palette.

Striped pieces are wardrobe essential. Get inspired by Palermo, have fun with yours: team stripes in different colors or juxtapose stripes against plaid, leopard or flowers. When mixing, pick two pieces that share at least one color. Keep the others muted and simple.

In Chinese: 从街拍女王奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)的这两个造型里我们能学到很多搭配技巧,我最喜欢的是她运用经典的黑白红的色彩组合对格子和条纹的混搭。

条纹是不退流行的图案,春夏穿尤其清爽。试试把你衣橱里不同颜色的条纹单品搭配看看,或者把条纹和上面看到的格子、还有豹纹或花朵混搭,你所选的两个混搭图案中最好有至少一个共同色,并保持其它的单品和配饰尽量简单低调。

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。
