Sand is one of the top colors for women’s fashion this spring. It reminds me of the breezy beaches. It’s thoughtful, sophisticated, yet very flattering and easy-going. Here, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley layered it with black, brown and metallic accent for the perfect neutral balance. This color also goes well with hemlock (a soft green hue) or another trendy color paloma pink.

In Chinese: 罗西·汉丁顿-惠特莉(Rosie Huntington-Whiteley)的这件长风衣的颜色这一季非常流行,像夏日傍晚沙滩的颜色,非常静谧、优雅。带点暖色的基调也很衬我们东方人的肤色。搭配起来也容易,可以像汉丁顿-惠特莉一样与其它的中性色如黑色、棕色、白色等相搭,并用一些金属色,比如同样优雅的玫瑰金或未来感的银色做提亮。也可以搭配上湖水绿、烟粉等淡淡的颜色和它本身的优雅感相呼应。

Jumpsuit: From Summer to Fall

Jumpsuit has been around for a while, from summer’s short overalls to fall’s long sleeved versions as you can see on today’s featured ladies. There are several reasons why we love a great jumpsuit:

First of all, it creates a long, lean silhouette that will make us look taller and slimmer, especially the versatile black one. Secondly, it’s as romantic and dramatic as a sexy-goddess maxi dress but much more practical and versatile. Thirdly, it has the perfect masculine/feminine balance which we all love today. Last but not least, it’s a no-brainer! You can just throw on and you are good to go.

In Chinese: 连身裤已经流行了好一阵了,从夏天就到处可见的清凉的短打连身裤到今年秋冬好多明星和名媛都偏爱的长袖装。存在必有其合理性,我最喜欢这种裤装的几点:首先,这种一件式的设计没有截断身形的担心,穿起来修身又显高;其次,它是性感和酷帅的完美结合。穿起来有和希腊女神式的长裙一样的视觉冲击,但是又没有那么挑场合挑季节。一年四季都可以穿,配合不同的鞋子和配饰也很容易打造适合不同场合的look。更重要的是你几乎不用费心考虑怎么穿搭,像裙子一样,只要套上去再加上一两个简单的配饰,比如一双性感的高跟鞋一个手包,甚至只搭一只简单的大手表,就很有型了。

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。
