As we said in Part 1 of this summer dressing series, nothing is as easy yet eye-catching as a maxi dress. If you get tired of basic black, grey or striped versions, try these two, each hits one hot trend this summer: western floral pattern and drop-waist silhouette. I love how these two fashion savvies modernized the revived trends with edgy, minimalist accessories, like the peep toe sandals and sleek tote on them, respectively.

In Chinese: 就像我们昨天在第一部分聊到的,长裙是夏天好穿又好看的必备单品。如果你已经有了黑白或条纹等基本款,今天的这两条你一定不能错过:西部风情的花朵裙和下腰线的棉布裙。对于这两件复古风格的单品,两位超模有着不同的演绎:罗西·汉丁顿-惠特莉(Rosie Huntington-Whiteley)的帅气踝靴中和了花朵裙的女人味,米兰达·可儿(Miranda Kerr)低调简约的手包平底鞋为甜美的造型加入了现代感。

A sweet floral dress combined with tough ankle boots is my favorite summer night look! Classic yet modern, sweet and edgy. Since ankle boots can cut you off, making the legs look shorter, the length of the dress and some styling tricks are very important. Look at the style savvy above, it’s not by chance that they both chose dresses 3 inches above the knee. A coordinating belt or high waist design further elongates the legs. With a pair of cool shades and hands-free crossbody bag, think of nothing but enjoying your night!

In Chinese:  碎花洋装搭配上帅气的踝靴是我最喜欢的造型,可以从春天一直穿到早秋,参加夏日晚上的户外派对也最适合不过。这个搭配经典又有潮感,甜美又率性。但踝靴有个最大的问题就是会截断我们的小腿,所以选择合适的裙长再搭配一些造型技巧就非常重要,比如上面的这两个造型,她们都选了膝上约三公分的裙长,这个长度适合大多数身形。除了裙长外,高腰及收腰的剪裁也很重要,或搭配上一条彩色的细腰带,都可以在强调腰线的同时拉长腿型。配上酷酷的太阳镜斜挎的小包,就能轻松享受夏日派对了。

How to wear black and white,   On Olivia Palermo March 31 2014: Rachel Zoe short sleeve coat, Christian Dior lady dior white purse, Hudson side stripe Jeans, Ralph Lauren Black Long-Sleeved Mesh Top.Photos: Olivia Palermo; Courtesy of splashnewsonline.com.

Why I love the look: It’s a little bit of everything: classic yet trendy, comfy yet polished, chic and sexy, with a hint of sporty and fun.

Shopping Tips: 
Look for basic pieces with interesting details: black skinny jeans with side stripes, black top but see-through, classic coat with chic short sleeves
Speaking of short sleeve coat, it’s perfect for between-seasons, and it’s a wonderful item to play with: you can wear lace, leather, chiffon, or fun prints like leopard, camo and stripes underneath it to create endless combos.

In Chinese:  街拍女王奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)的这个造型简约而不简单,看似平淡的黑白配,却融合了透视、运动、印花等很多流行元素,利落又性感,舒适且潮味十足。

挑选经典单品中带有出挑的细节设计或新一季的元素是打造这种风格的关键。比如这件在她的街拍中出现过很多次的短袖风衣,不仅是换季时的必备,而且通过内搭不同材质,比如蕾丝、雪纺、皮革等,不同图案比如豹纹、迷彩、条纹等等,可以变换出很多新造型。
