As we said in Part 1 of this summer dressing series, nothing is as easy yet eye-catching as a maxi dress. If you get tired of basic black, grey or striped versions, try these two, each hits one hot trend this summer: western floral pattern and drop-waist silhouette. I love how these two fashion savvies modernized the revived trends with edgy, minimalist accessories, like the peep toe sandals and sleek tote on them, respectively.
In Chinese: 就像我们昨天在第一部分聊到的，长裙是夏天好穿又好看的必备单品。如果你已经有了黑白或条纹等基本款，今天的这两条你一定不能错过：西部风情的花朵裙和下腰线的棉布裙。对于这两件复古风格的单品，两位超模有着不同的演绎：罗西·汉丁顿-惠特莉(Rosie Huntington-Whiteley)的帅气踝靴中和了花朵裙的女人味，米兰达·可儿(Miranda Kerr)低调简约的手包和平底鞋为甜美的造型加入了现代感。
T-shirt, jeans and sneakers/boots are what usually come up in our mind when planning trips. Can we stay polished and glamorous on the way to our destination? Today’s featured fashion connoisseurs can tell us how in two simple steps:
First, add one statement piece to elevate the otherwise laid-back, plain look. Take their outfits for example: the black tee and ballet flats on Olivia Palermo, gray shirt and blue jeans on Rosie Huntington are basic pieces we all have and would wear to the airport. Instead of pairing the black tee with jeans or sweatpants, try a right-on-trend flounce skirt, it’s easy yet fashionable, also convenient to transform after you land. Similarly, instead of bringing a hoodie or sweater for a T-shirt-and-jeans combo, try a statement blazer or even just a well-fitted leather jacket, which will instantly polish up your look.
Second, using accessories strategically. Compared to delicate fine jewelry, a unique statement fashion necklace, like this arrow version, will finish off your look with style. You don’t need to worry about damage and the style will go great with all the outfits you bring. Also, think of accessories that are multifunction: A well-made designer satchel can polish up any outfit while fits all your essentials; An oversized sunglasses can ensure you look good without makeup while offer UV protection; A stylish hat can cover your bad hair while keeping your ensemble chic; A fashionable watch can make sure you leave on time while being a statement accessory itself…
The first time I got my passport, the first question raised on my mind was:” why the cover is burgundy?” But after a second look, I thought:” why not burgundy?
Burgundy is so universally flattering, versatile yet stylish. It’s serious but still has a lively vibe. It’s classical and modern at the same time.
It’s a perfect color for fall and winter, but when paired with light and fresh tones like pink or ivory, it will make your look sophisticated in spring and summer, especially when it is used in bags, like this LV Sofia Coppola SC Miranda Kerr carries:
