Fur or Faux fur pieces are cold weather essentials. They keep us stylish while shielding against winter chill. Today’s featured ladies gave us more fresh ideas of how to style these wardrobe staples:

Olivia Palermo mixed plaids to liven up her dark ensemble. Her relaxed pants work well in this outfit because the fur piece on her is a vest instead of a coat. The sheer blouse balances the loose silhouette while the eye-catching stilettos elongating her legs.

Alessandra Ambrosio’s striped fur coat is definitely the center piece, so she kept the others simple and quiet. The right-on-trend over-the-knee boots seen on her go great with mini skirt or shorts, exuding the right amount of sexiness. Check out how Kate Moss styled her striped fur coat for a glamorous evening look here!

In Chinese: 皮草是秋冬打造时尚又保暖造型的必备单品。除了搭配牛仔裤或打底裤外,还有什么新鲜的搭配方法吗?看看今天的这两个造型吧!

Olivia Palermo混搭了两种不同的格子图案给秋冬的暗沉色调增加了趣味。因为皮草本身具有膨胀感,所以我们一般搭配紧身的裤装,Olivia Palermo却选择了略宽松的款式,关键在于她的皮草单品是马甲,而且她用半透明的衬衫降低了潜在的臃肿感,她的裤装在脚踝处也做了收紧的处理,搭配上能拉长腿型的尖头高跟鞋,这种宽松加宽松的‘公式’才成立。

Alessandra Ambrosio的这件条纹的皮草大衣是整身最亮眼的单品。在保持其它的色彩相对简单低调的同时,她用休闲的牛仔短裤给皮草增加了些年轻活泼的元素。现在正红的膝上靴最好的穿搭伙伴是迷你裙或短裤,既拉长腿型又能展现恰到好处的性感。Kate Moss也曾穿过相似的条纹皮草大衣,还记得这个look吗?

Party Outfits: Fur Coat & Sexy LBDs

Nobody wears fur coats better than Kate Moss. She pairs hers with distressed jeans, denim cutoffs, casual T-shirts or even maxi dresses for care-free day-time looks, and with mini skirts, dresses or lingerie for sexy & glamorous night out looks.

Today’s two outfits of her are perfect examples of how to wear fur coats for fall/winter parties: Since a fur coat is such a strong statement piece, keep the others simple and quiet, like the black LBDs, classic bag and basic pumps showed on Kate Moss; Balance the bulkiness of fur with fitted bottoms or bare legs; Offset its formality with edgy elements and imperfect makeup, like Kate’s bad-girl-vibe leather dress and her signature tousled tresses.

All these pieces are fashionable yet classic wardrobe staples that worth to invest in and will accompany us many years, together they result outfits that are smarter balanced, great for any age!

In Chinese: 在我看来,没有人比Kate Moss更会穿皮草。她会配上牛仔、皮裤、海魂衫等打造白天出街的轻松又有气场的造型;晚上参加派对时则把皮草大衣随性地裹在紧身小黑裙外,保暖又性感。

今天所选的她的这两个皮草大衣的造型就很适合秋冬的派对或约会。因为皮草外套本身就是很有存在感的单品,所以搭配时尽量选择线条和颜色简单的单品,比如Kate Moss身上的小黑裙、经典款的小香包优雅的高跟鞋等。贴身的下半身可以降低皮草大衣的臃肿感。同时要加入一些年轻化的元素给皮草“减龄”,比如单宁、皮革条纹等。略凌乱的发型和这一季流行的“不完整”的妆容等都能给一贯感觉老气的皮草增加潮流和随性感。

这两身造型中搭配到的皮草大衣、小黑裙和经典的红底鞋等都是衣橱必备的单品,不退流行,值得我们去投资,而且在各个年龄段都能穿。

Winter White: Colorblock Coat & Red Accent

Thanks to the strong black and white trend, not only the traditional winter white shades like eggshell and cream are totally acceptable, the bright whites we usually see in summer are also can, and should be embraced in winter now. A crisp white piece can instantly make a monochrome look modern, sharp and chic.

Here, Miranda Kerr chose the classic white, blue and red color theme, while Lily Collins demonstrated the black & white simplicity. The faux fur coat on Lily Collins is colorblocked, combined with a black jumpsuit, making the stodgy fur youthful and flattering.

I’m glad that the red trend is back this fall. You can team it with almost any color, the combination of red and white is especially fresh and uplifting.

In Chinese: 感谢这几季强劲的黑白风,现在秋冬穿白色的概念已经完全被大家所接受了,而且色调上也不再局限于传统的米白、象牙白,连春夏常见的亮白色、银白色也完全四季皆宜了。

在色彩的搭配上,Miranda Kerr所穿的蓝、白、红以及Lily Collins身上极简的黑与白等都是经典的组合。我尤其喜欢Lily Collins的这件黑白撞色的皮草外套,和黑色的连身裤搭配起来,降低了皮草的正式感又能拉长腿型。

另外,今年红色又回潮了!就像小黑裙一样,每一个人一定有属于自己的那一款红。这个经典的颜色无论和中性的黑白灰,撞色的蓝、绿还是相近的粉或桔搭配起来都很漂亮,和纯白色配起来更是格外醒目。
