Peplum is the hottest word last season, and will still be around this year. That little extra fabric makes a huge difference: it perfectly reshapes our body by creating that attractive “S” silhouette while allowing us to eat one more piece of cake.
There are many ways to wear this style: with jeans (skinny, boyfriend or distressed), cropped pants or skater skirt. But the more feminine way? With pencil skirt. The body hugging pencil skirt highlights the exaggerated peplum, gives the whole look a sexy vibe.
Since both pieces (peplum top and pencil skirt) are so feminine, to balance it out, today’s look is a perfect example: the military style and neutral palette of her jacket grounded the bright skirt and pumps while the colorblock bag adding a sleek, modern touch.
Inspired by the overall shape and color palette of Elena Perminova’s outfit, I found the pieces below that I adore this season, hope to give your some ideas on how to play with this silhouette and the seasonless, timeless color combo (blue and orange/red)!
Hi everyone! It’s been such a long time since my last post. I’m going through a big change now and would like to share with this good news with you all: I’m going to be a mom soon! During the past two months, I have been tormented by the discomfort of pregnancy. Now I finally stepped into the so-called golden stage, although morning sickness is still around. And I will surely include more maternity style tips in the future, for those of you who are also expecting a new family member!
I’m glad I come back just in time: it’s the middle of fashion month, countless of runway looks and street styles are dazzling. With spring coming soon, there’s just too many to share! Today, let’s start with one of my favorite Chinese model Bonnie Chen (last time featured her here).
Black and white is a huge trend for this spring and will continue go into fall/winter as we saw from the latest runway shows. In her outfit, we can see trendy elements (like the high contrast palette and statement cross-body bag); fashion-forward elements that will coming next season (like her beanie and exaggerated hairstyle); and classic elements that never go out of style (leather pants, biker boots and crisp white button-down). All of these blend harmoniously. Compared to those showgoers with bare legs and sky high heels walking on snow, her look is not only stylish, but warm, comfy and easy.
Azure blue is my all-time favorite color and I believe that I’m not alone: there are countless azure lovers. One of them impressed me most–do you remember Andy Sachs? The girl in the The Devil Wears Prada who wore a cerulean sweater? Her boss, the “devil” told us many things about this color, like:”that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs. ”
Well, I can guess how many dollars behind azure when I saw this bag on the street (picture from Glamour magazine):
