Slouchy leather pants are great alternative to the ubiquitous leather leggings. they are relaxed, comfy, unexpected and very flattering. This season, pick a pair with elastic waist for a cool sporty touch (and one more dessert, anyone?). I love how Alessandra Ambrosio juxtaposed hers against sexy and feminine bow pumps. The look was best complemented with her off-duty nonchalance.

For now, wear the pants with a right-on-trend cropped jumper and a long vest or blazer for the right balance. When it’s warmer, pair it with your well-worn graphic tee or a flowy embroidered top.

In Chinese: 这种松垮的皮裤在运动风盛行的这几季很流行,比起处处可见的紧腿皮裤,这种裤型穿起来舒适又可以修饰肉肉腿。选择的时候挑略带锥形的版型,有松紧腰带的设计更呼应这一季的运动风,还可以吃到饱。穿的时候卷起裤腿露出纤细的脚踝,搭配上有对比的女人味的尖头鞋

初春的时候配上毛衣或卫衣穿。如果选择流行的露脐款,外面加上长版的西装外套马甲平衡露肤度。天气热些了,就可以配上这种酷酷的字母图案的T恤或波希米亚风的镂花小上衣

Light colored faux fur jacket is a great transitional piece for early spring when we need that lightness and cheerfulness but still want to stay warm and cozy in unexpected chill weather. Here, Olivia Palermo & Kate Bosworth both chose jeans to dress down the luxe vibe of fur while modernizing the looks with edgy and futuristic accessories, respectively.

In Chinese: 毛毛外套是春寒料峭时的穿搭好帮手,尤其是清爽粉嫩的浅色系,保暖的同时能给我们带来春天的好心情。今天选的这两个造型里,Olivia Palermo 和 Kate Bosworth都选择了用牛仔裤降低皮草的奢华和正式感,硬朗的踝靴有未来感的金属包等配件也给皮草注入了年轻、现代的元素。

Faux Fur Style: Day to Night (Part II)

It’s not the first time I featured Olivia Palermo styling her fur cardigan for day and night (check her previous looks here), today let’s share two more outfits of her, learn how to recycle the same piece for various occasions.

Since fur has the connotation of being formal and stodgy, for a daytime look, we need to downplay it by adding bright colors and youthful elements. Here, Olivia Palermo teamed hers with edgy leather pants and biker boots, and brought in colors via accessories like an artful scarf and cherry red satchel.

For a glamorous evening look, we want to bring out the luxurious side of fur but still keep it up-to-date. Olivia Palermo chose rich jewelry tones like emerald greencrimson red and deep brown for a picturesque fall look and kept it current by mixing this season’s favorite textures and hottest hues. Her bared legs also balanced out the bulkiness of fur.

In Chinese: 上次我们分享了两个Olivia Palermo穿着皮草的搭配,今天再看看这两个造型,学学她怎么用同一件单品搭配出休闲和华贵两种look吧!

皮草总让人感觉太正式,还有些老气。要打造白天出街的搭配,最好用明亮的色彩和年轻的元素打破皮草的奢华和正式感。Olivia Palermo搭配了酷帅的皮裤机车靴,用抢眼的围巾樱桃红的手包等配饰点亮了整身造型,看起来随意又时尚。

参加宴会或派对时,除了凸显皮草的奢华感外,用流行的元素和适度的露肤度给皮草装扮“减龄”。Olivia Palermo身上的墨绿酒红深棕等颜色呼应了皮草的华贵,也符合季节。不同材质的混搭和当季最in色彩的组合让她的装扮得体优雅,又不失流行感。
