Dress for Zero-Degree

 I have love-hate relationship with parkas, need them when it’s freezing cold outside while challenged when it comes to styling. Today’s two looks inspired me, I love how Gisele Bundchen kept hers sleek and sexy with skinny jeans, killer booties and an It bag, envy how Miranda Kerr made the impossible combination of super comfy and super chic by mixing sweatpants and sneakers with covetable Hermes and sultry red lips.

In Chinese: 我对风雪衣既爱又恨,寒冬里离不开它,穿时却很难搭配出时尚感。如果你也一样,今天的这两个look能给我们些灵感:Gisele Bundchen选了酷帅的军绿色,配上修身仔裤拼接的皮革踝靴IT包,颇有硬朗又性感的都市风。Miranda Kerr则混搭了休闲的运动裤、运动鞋与让人垂涎的爱马仕包和她标志性的红唇。How to Dress for Zero-Degree Temperatures; How to Wear a Parka;  featured: Earrings: ginette_ny Mini Lotus Stud Earrings,  Bag:  Givenchy Lucrezia duffel Bag,  Jacket: FAY padded jacket,  Jeans: J Brand Maria High Rise Powerstretch Legging Jeans,  Boots: CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN canassone boots,

Fall Perfection: Plaid Shirt & Rich Shades

Plaid, leopard, burgundy, emerald… these classic yet trendy shades and prints are naturally associated with fall/winter. Jessica Alba demonstrate how to style them for day and night:

Luxe texture ups the chic factor. For a day time look, a velvet blazer, calf hair flat, wool fedora and cashmere scarf make a sleeveless shirt and skinny jeans combo perfect for fall. A black tote grounded the rich colors.

For an event or a night out, slip on stilettos and grab a printed clutch, you are good to go. Here, Jessica Alba smartly made the sleeveless shirt cold weather approved simply by warming them up with rich shades, from the deep burgundy on her lips to the emerald-green on her toes.

In Chinese: 豹纹、格子、酒红、墨绿等这些词天然地和秋冬联系在一起。今天来看看Jessica Alba 怎么把这些色彩和图案搭配起来,无论应对时尚派对还是周末出街都优雅自如。

奢华的材质能给基础单品和暗沉色调增加层次、提升质感,比如对于春夏我们常穿的无袖衬衫和牛仔裤的组合,秋冬时加上天鹅绒的西装外套马毛或牛毛的鞋子包包、羊毛的小礼帽以及喀什米尔的围巾等。如果觉得身上的颜色和图案太多,就像Jessica Alba 一样用一个黑色的大包平衡一下吧。

参加派对或晚上外出时,只要把通勤的平底鞋换成高跟鞋,再加上一个豹纹手抓包和一抹红唇就可以了。但是要有应季感还要注意色调的选择,像Jessica Alba所选的墨绿色的鞋暗红的唇色就给原本清凉的look增加了温暖度。

To “fight” against the desolation of early Spring, nothing is better than a bold, bright, dynamic red piece. It can instantly lift up our mood, brighten up a dull ensemble. No wonder we spot this vivid hue everywhere recently: from celebrities to street trendsetters.

Since it’s such an bright color, styling it in a modern, chic way can be a challenging. In case you have the same question, I started this “how to wear red” series. Let’s start with clothing pieces today.

To stay cozy on chilly days, the great colors to pair with red are camel and black. Inspired by Peony Lim’s look (above left) during fashion week, I paired this camel sweater with red skinny jeans. The python tote adds detail and texture to the look while the fringed booties echoing the edginess. To balance the heavy colors on bottom, a black fedora is great (it’s also a bad hair day saver!). Take off the convertible jewel collar on the sweater, you get a classic outfit that’s great for any age.

Garance Doré is my favorite fashion blogger. Her looks have that perfect masculine/feminine balance that I deeply adore. This outfit of her (above right) incorporated one of my favorite color combination: red and white.

Inspired by her, for the warm weather ahead, you can pair a bright red silk blouse with fresh white colored add-ons (like classic white pumps and a clean-lined white tote. And yes, it’s OK to match your shoes to bag).
