Plaid, leopard, burgundy, emerald… these classic yet trendy shades and prints are naturally associated with fall/winter. Jessica Alba demonstrate how to style them for day and night:

Luxe texture ups the chic factor. For a day time look, a velvet blazer, calf hair flat, wool fedora and cashmere scarf make a sleeveless shirt and skinny jeans combo perfect for fall. A black tote grounded the rich colors.

For an event or a night out, slip on stilettos and grab a printed clutch, you are good to go. Here, Jessica Alba smartly made the sleeveless shirt cold weather approved simply by warming them up with rich shades, from the deep burgundy on her lips to the emerald-green on her toes.

In Chinese: 豹纹、格子、酒红、墨绿等这些词天然地和秋冬联系在一起。今天来看看Jessica Alba 怎么把这些色彩和图案搭配起来,无论应对时尚派对还是周末出街都优雅自如。

奢华的材质能给基础单品和暗沉色调增加层次、提升质感,比如对于春夏我们常穿的无袖衬衫和牛仔裤的组合,秋冬时加上天鹅绒的西装外套马毛或牛毛的鞋子包包、羊毛的小礼帽以及喀什米尔的围巾等。如果觉得身上的颜色和图案太多,就像Jessica Alba 一样用一个黑色的大包平衡一下吧。

参加派对或晚上外出时,只要把通勤的平底鞋换成高跟鞋,再加上一个豹纹手抓包和一抹红唇就可以了。但是要有应季感还要注意色调的选择,像Jessica Alba所选的墨绿色的鞋暗红的唇色就给原本清凉的look增加了温暖度。

Menswear Chic: Bomber Jackets

Many of our beloved fashion staples are borrowed from the boys: pantsuit, trench coat, loafers…. and today’s featured iconic piece–the bomber jacket. Originally designed for Air Force pilots, bomber jacket is now deeply loved by women for its versatility, chic clean lines and leg-elongating cropped cut.

The best way to style menswear-inspired pieces is balancing them with feminine, sexy elements, be it a pair of skinny jeans, a scarlet lip, mini skirt, or sexy pointy toe pump. Olivia Palermo always goes one step further: how fashionable are these two bomber jackets on her? Love the edgy leather quilt and sophisticated color block on them!

我们的很多经典的时尚单品都是从男朋友们的衣橱里“借”来的,比如西服套装、经典的风衣、马丁靴等,还有今天我想分享的飞行员夹克。像它的名字所表明的,这种外套最初是为飞行员们保暖而设计的,但它的实用性、简洁的线条以及能拉长身形的短款设计让它迅速在我们女性的衣橱里赢得了一席之地。

这种男孩风单品的最好搭配方式是加入一些女性化的、或柔美或性感的元素,比如迷你裙,荷叶边的上衣、红唇或尖头包鞋等。除了搭配外,Olivia Palermo的这两件飞行员夹克更胜在细节:酷感十足的皮革拼接酒红色以及经典黑白的色块组合让她的look多了份精致和都市感。

Black/white is a huge trend this season and will stay strong this fall/winter. This classic color combo actually never goes out of style, I think one reason is that it creates the perfect canvas for fashion lovers to play around by adding colors, patterns & prints, by changing textures, medias and shapes.

Our featured star Olivia Palermo showed us exactly how through these two outfits above: instead of using pure black and white pieces, she chose geometric or animal print ones. Even for basic black outerwear, she pays attention to details by choosing a baseball version with mesh sleeves and a draped front design made of sequins.

When it comes to accessories, she is definitely at the top of the game! Here, she added ethnic necklace, animal print shoes and bright bag to spice up the monochrome palette, making it fun and exotic.

Which outfit do you like? How will you style your black and white?
