Besides celebrity street styles and models off-duty looks, I’m always looking for outfit inspirations from fashion editors, bloggers and photographers. Alexia Niedzielski, who I deeply admire, is definitely one of them.

Above I featured two outfits of her that are great for this time of the year. These looks combined some of the season’s hottest trends, like oversized coat, color red and menswear shoes.

Teaming trendy pieces with basics (like the simple T-shirts, jeans and leather shorts on her) is an easy and smart way to keep up with trends while standing out as elegantly characterful.

In Chinese: 除了明星和超模的街拍look外,能给我很多灵感的还有一些有自我风格和态度的时尚编辑、摄影师和博主。今天的这一位就是其中的代表–来自巴黎的摄影师和Ever Manifesto杂志的创始人Alexia Niedzielski。

她的这两个look很适合早秋,而且融入了这一季最新的时尚元素像宽松的外套、红色男士鞋款、未来感的配饰等。把流行的单品和你平时常穿的基本款搭配起来是既容易操作又聪明的搭配方法,彰显时尚品味的同时又不失个人风格。

Run out of ideas for styling your black pieces? Miranda Kerr & Olivia Palermo wowed us again by spicing up their basic black pieces with hottest trends & to-die-for accessories. Here is how:

Add one trendy, eye-catching print to break up a dark ensemble. The tartan jacket on Miranda Kerr echoes the punk trend but in a more sophisticated way while the marble printed top on Olivia Palermo introducing the next hottest pattern spotted on the latest runway.

Use accessories to update basic black pieces while giving them different characters: The Isabel Marant booties and classic quilted leather tote add an edgy yet sexy vibe to Miranda Kerr’s outfit; A camouflage tassel pump and studded white bag add unexpected juxtaposition to Olivia Palermo’s city chic look.

Play with textures: mix elegant tweed with tough leather, juxtapose delicate silk against chunky knit or heavy metal. Be creative and have fun!

黑色的单品我们每年秋冬都会穿,这一季怎么穿出新鲜、时尚感又不失我们自己的风格?Miranda Kerr 和Olivia Palermo最近在巴黎时装周期间的这两个糅合了最新潮流趋势的造型能给我们一些灵感:

在基本的黑色look中引入一两个最新的图案打破黑色的沉闷感。Miranda Kerr身上的呢格纹是经典的庞克元素,这一季设计师赋予了庞克风精良的都市感。Olivia Palermo所穿的大理石图案也将是下一季的热捧。

用配饰给经典款的黑色单品加入更多当季的元素,也能方便快速地变换风格。Miranda Kerr所穿的目前最受追捧的来自Isabel Marant的尖头拼接踝靴和香奈儿包呼应了皮裤和丝袜搭配的酷帅和性感;Olivia Palermo的迷彩流苏高跟鞋和铆钉包也使原本优雅的look更具时尚和个性。

混搭不同的材质也能让整身暗色调的搭配更富层次感,比如用优雅的粗呢外套去搭配酷帅的皮裤或二手的破洞牛仔装,用精致的丝缎或蕾丝搭配宽松的针织衫或铆钉装饰的庞克风配件等。
