Denim overalls, which are related to workwear or our childhood memories, are now making a strong fashion revival. To better style them, I picked four of my favorite looks from style savants, hope they can inspire you to master this trend.

Keira Knightley’s look below may be the easiest way to style an overall, also the closest to its utility root. Striped top, sneakers and glasses invoke the preppy vibe of denim overalls.

Blogger Sara Strand made a few changes to avoid looking too juvenile: ankle strap heels, leather biker jacket, fine jewelry and cool sunglasses gave the overall shorts and striped sweater combo an urban chic vibe.

Selena Gomez updated denim overalls with right-on-trend crop top. Tassel scarf, metallic accent sandals and structured leather bag infuse femininity and urban bohemian to the look.

Rihanna’s look is my favorite. By staying in a simple and refreshing color palette, balancing masculine and feminine, and of course, with her signature nonchalant attitude and free spirit, she blended several hottest trends (the bomber jacket, cropped top, overalls, white add-ons) harmoniously together.

If pink is the color for girls, then red is the one for women. As I mentioned in my previous post about the three trendy red dresses, the color red carries countless positive connotation especially in Asian countries. But it is widely loved for many more reasons: Continue reading »

Amanda Wakeley is one of my favorites female designers, not only because of her luxury but practical, alluring and understated, body enhancing yet comfortable collections, but also because of her self-taught experience and her pure passion for creating clothes that women really love to wear regardless of age.

That’ why I was so thrilled to see Kate on Amanda Wakeley‘s sleek, elegant white dress when she went to the Royal Marsden Hospital last year and even more thrilled to see Kate on the exactly same dress but different color-grey couple of days ago when she went to Imperial War Museum:
