There are a millions ways to accessorize a black maxi dress, I especially appreciate the subdued beauty of pairing black with other neutrals, like showed above: Vanessa Hudgens highlighted her sexy yet demure maxi with all black accessories while Jamie Chung opted for a sophisticated black/nude palette.

A black maxi dress is no doubt a wardrobe essential that can be worn year-round (remember these outfits of Miranda Kerr?). If you already have the basic version, invest in one with eye-catching details like asymmetrical hem, sexy cut out, daring open back, or double slits.

In Chinese: 一条简单的黑色长裙可以有数不清的穿搭方法。可能很多人倾向于加些颜色或印花图案作为亮点,我却偏爱把小黑裙本身作为重点,用其它中性色或黑色本身去装饰,那种优雅、带着点克制哲学的低调美别有韵味,比如今天看到的这两个造型。

黑色长裙是一年四季都可以穿的衣橱必备 (还记得米兰达·可儿的这四个搭配吗?),如果你已经有了基本款,投资一条有流行元素的,比如前短后长的不对称剪裁性感的小镂空双开叉等等。

one piece different ways; crop top trend; stripes and floralsPhotos: Jamie Chung & Eva Longoria; Courtesy of Splash News.

Hard to believe it’s a $48 skirt. With the flattering high-waist style and black waistband, the impeccable fit, the classic stripe print mixed with strategically placed florals, it looks much more expensive! Several celebrities have been spotted wearing it. Which look above do you like? Jamie Chung’s youthful pairing, or Eva Longoria’s elegant take?

In Chinese: 不敢相信这是一条48美金的裙子:贴心的设计,服帖的剪裁和让人眼前一亮的图案已经让这个物美价廉的单品吸引了好几位好莱坞明星的喜爱。上面的这两个穿法你更喜欢哪个?杰米·钟(Jamie Chung)的充满活力的搭配还是伊娃·朗格利亚(Eva Longoria)高端优雅的穿法?

Red/blue is a classic color combination, naturally,  blue jeans are red tops’ best friends. Here, Jamie Chung chose distressed boyfriend version to tone down a structured red blazer while highlighting her beautiful shoes. This look is great for casual occasions where you still want some polish. Nicole Richie’s flared jeans elongated her legs while the retro vibe echoes her contrast trimmed blazer. Change the jeans to a dark washed one, you can wear this to the office too.

In Chinese: 红蓝配是经典配色之一,明暗度和饱和度的不同又可以衍生出很多变化。提到红色外套或小衫,自然会想到配牛仔蓝。想穿得随性又都会感,就选择一条宽松的破洞牛仔裤吧,再加上有设计感的高跟鞋,强烈的反差让人过目不忘;想正式中带些女人味,就选修身的喇叭裤,像Nicole Richie(上图右)的造型,复古感的阔腿裤滚边外套相呼应,加上尖头鞋白衬衫就是能点亮办公室的好装扮,想再增加正式感,就换成深色水洗款
