In a blink of an eye, we’re approaching the end of summer, which means the sartorial challenge we are facing now is transition dressing. Today’s two outfits from style mavens showed us how to transform summer staples like shorts, clogs and bright accessories into fall with ease. Hint: show a touch of bare skin and stay within a rich, sophisticated palette, like the bordeaux, olive and mustard seen here.

In Chinese: 眨眼的功夫夏天都快要结束了,这也意味了我们在日常着装上面临的挑战要从对抗酷暑转为在夏末秋初的尴尬过渡季如何穿搭了。今天的这两个时尚偶像就示范了如何把夏天的单品,比如短裤、木底拖以及亮色的配饰等穿到秋天。小提示:降低露肤度并选择秋冬常见的优雅色系比如在上面的造型里看到的酒红、芥末黄和橄榄绿等在视觉上给人以温暖的颜色。

Red Jeans, Two Ways

I consider colored jeans as wardrobe essentials. If you haven’t tried yet, classic red and cobalt blue are great options to star your collection. Here, Kate Moss & Alessandra Ambrosio showed us two ways to style a pair of red skinny jeans. One I call it ‘casual weekend look’ is demonstrated by Ambrosio (above right). Another I call ‘the bold look’ is from fashion icon Kate Moss (above right). Her luxurious pajama top, wild fringed western style bag and sleek, timeless Greek sandals blend harmoniously thanks to the clean color palette and sleek, modern silhouette.

In Chinese: 彩色的窄腿裤是时尚衣橱的必备单品。如果你还没有尝试,正红色宝蓝色是两个最容易上手也最好搭的颜色。超模凯特·摩丝(Kate Moss)和亚历山大·安布罗休(Alessandra Ambrosio)展示了两种不同风格的搭配:后者是大家都熟悉也都可以驾驭的都市休闲风。关于前者… 这种高段位的混搭不知道怎么形容,只能把它称为“王牌搭配”了:时尚偶像凯特·摩丝把持续流行的睡衣潮流和本季正火的西部风以及经典的希腊绑带鞋混搭起来,整体造型前卫、利落,别有风味。这个混搭看起来很和谐的关键在于线条的选择和颜色的组合都很简单。

Menswear Chic

How to wear menswear trend, how to wear a grey coat,   Miranda Kerr, Kate Moss, fall/winter,Models off Duty,Street Style, Party Outfits,Casual Attire,Photos: Miranda Kerr & Kate Moss; Courtesy of justjared.comgettyimages.com.

For very similar combinations: black basics, ankle boots and grey coat, Miranda Kerr accessorised with a covetable goes-with-everything bag and sunglasses for casual day out while Kate Moss paired with a classic yet mod clutch and statement necklace for a fashion event. I also love how they balanced the menswear silhouette with feminine elements like the crop sweater,  semi sheer top, tossed hair and that care-free attitude.

In Chinese: 今天的这两个造型很相似:黑色的基本款单品踝靴灰色大衣。不同在于细节,Miranda Kerr的大包包太阳镜和自然的妆容让这套搭配适合出街,Kate Moss则配上了经典的链条边手包、抢眼的项链和小烟熏妆出席时尚活动。对于中性感的箱型外套,用女人味十足的单品和细节去平衡再合适不过,比如在这两个超模身上看到的短款毛衣、半透明的V领上衣、抢眼的项链、还有她们标志性的发型和舍我其谁的时尚态度。
