What You Need This Summer

A printed over-the-knee skirt and a maxi dress really are the only two pieces you need this summer— one for the office, the other for off-duty. For the over-the-knee skirt, you can choose either a pencil-shape or a full skirt version like the one on Jessica Alba (above left). I prefer the latter: It covers offending areas and flatters almost any body shape. Pick a colorful floral version, and pair it with any solid top lying in your closet.  The styling part is even easier for a printed maxi dress: You don’t need any jewelry since the print is already very eye-catching. You even don’t need to think about shoes because they hide underneath most of the time. Grab your favorite sunglasses (my favorite here!), and you are good to go!

In Chinese: 其实今年夏天,只要投资两条漂亮的印花裙就可以轻松度过了:一条过膝的半身裙上班或约会时穿,一条拖地长裙晚上或周末穿。关于前者,一般有两种廓形:包身的铅笔裙或大伞裙。前者很挑身材。后者因为盖住了很多问题部位,适合各种身材的美眉。关于颜色,选择多彩的印花吧,这样就能和你衣橱里任何一件单色的T恤或坦克背心搭配了。至于后者–印花的拖地长裙,配起来就更简单了。因为图案本身就很吸引人,所以不用考虑配件。鞋子也大部分时候都藏在裙子下,也不用考虑。只要带上酷酷的太阳镜,就可以出门了!

All Black Chic

Having a 4 month-old son, I barely have time to get dressed. No-brainer black ensemble is my go-to. How to spicy it up, avoid that tired-mommy look? Two words: details and accessories.

As showed on Heidi Klum above, the combination of denim/leather on her pants, the side buttons on her boots, the fur collar on her coat make the outfits anything but boring. Trendy sunglasses, scarlet lips and hot It bags add the right amount of glam.

These outfits are great for any age,especially handy for busy moms. Change the leather pants with straight-leg trousers or a pencil skirt, you can wear these to the office too.

In Chinese: 当了妈妈后,根本没有时间考虑每天穿什么。一身黑最简单,又不怕脏。但是怎么穿出辣妈味呢?

两个关键词:细节和配饰。比如Heidi Klum这两身造型里牛仔拼接的皮裤侧边有排扣设计的踝靴、白色皮草领的大衣等让原本普通的黑色单品潮味十足。在配饰上,眩光镜片精致的红唇、或大热的设计师手包等都能瞬间让普通的搭配脱颖而出。

这两个造型不分年龄,而且尤其适合忙碌的妈妈们。把皮裤换成西装裤或铅笔裙,就能穿去办公室了。

To continue on from our last conversation about preparing for the coming ‘party season’, if you are not into colors, a never-goes-out-of-style LBD will surely fit your needs. Hard to believe that with such a simple color and shape, the little black dress is constantly reinvented each season. This time, it is combined with the hottest peek-a-boo trend as you can see on the featured icons above.

When it comes to styling, balance the sexy cutouts with demure knee-grazing hem. Keep accessories simple and quiet, let the dress take center stage. As long as you choose the cutouts wisely, you can rock these looks no matter the age.

In Chinese: 延续我们上次的派对着装话题,如果明快的色彩不是你的菜,那么经典的小黑裙一定符合你的诉求。提起小黑裙,很难相信最基本的黑色和简单的裙装剪裁能在设计师的手中被一次次重新演绎,每季都给我们惊喜。

这次的小黑裙带上了大热的镂空和绑带细节,因此最好选择及膝或膝下的裙长以平衡露肤度,鞋子和手包等配饰的选择上也尽量简单低调,让视线集中在漂亮的剪裁上。 只要根据自己身材的优缺点明智地选择镂空的大小、位置,那么无论什么年纪,穿这种小黑裙都会性感又端庄。
