Being a mom myself, I love watching fashion icons dress their babies. Miranda Kerr and her boy Flynn are definitely among my top style-crush list. I love how Miranda Kerr takes the intimate mother-son coordinating outfits to another level by ‘matching’ style instead of clothing. As showed above, from refined punk to laid-back casual, Flynn has become her best ‘accessories’.

In Chinese: 当了妈妈以后,我就有意识地开始留意那些同样做了母亲的时尚偶像们怎么打扮她们的小孩。超模Miranda Kerr和她两岁的儿子Flynn的出街装扮是我最喜欢看的。市面上有的亲子装、家庭装往往太过可爱,而且穿起来不合身,Miranda Kerr的搭配启发了我们,不要刻意去穿一模一样的衣服,可以从风格和色彩上进行搭配和呼应,比如今天所选的这两个造型,有酷帅的庞克风,也有活泼舒适的休闲风,Flynn俨然成了这个时尚辣妈最好的“配饰”。

Thanks to Balenciaga & Yves Saint Laurent who first introduced over-the-knee boots to the fashion world in the 60s, and legendary Karl Lagerfeld who popularized them by showing women that over-the-knee boots are a fashionable and practical alternative to leggings, now they already become a fashion staple that we rely on every fall/winter.

From the pioneers who rocked them in the 60s (led a strong trend against the iconic New look from Dior), you know that these babies are bad girls, they are tough, brave and sexy, which we should keep in mind when styling.

The streamlined menswear coat and outstanding cape coat showed on Miranda Kerr echo the cool-girl vibe of these boots. Mini skirts or shorts are the way to go with the high hem. And the best accessories? Your attitude!

膝上靴的流行真的要感谢设计师Balenciaga & Yves Saint Laurent,在上个世纪60年代,他们第一次把这种专门为男士们骑马而设计的鞋款引入了女性时装界。但这种靴型真正流行起来还要感谢Karl Lagerfeld,他在90年代设计的一个秋冬系列里用膝上靴代替传统秋冬穿的厚裤袜,从此每年秋冬,膝上靴就成了我们必不可少的单品了。

至于怎么搭配,回顾它的设计起源能给我们更多灵感。上世纪60年代正是迪奥最著名的new look盛行的时候,膝上靴的酷帅、性感和“坏女孩”的感觉吸引了一批对new look审美疲劳的时尚先驱们。

Miranda Kerr所选的单品,从狮身人面图案的T恤迷你裙男士款的大衣及独特剪裁的披肩外套等,都呼应了膝上靴的这种叛逆感和性感。
