Do you have a delicate, exquisite dress or skirt that has been sitting in the closet waiting for that special moment, which might never come? Well, it’s time to pull it out. Be creative and experimental, make your evening skirt day-time appropriate by teaming it with jumpers, sweatshirts, tees or a bomber jacket.

Here, as a nod to the hottest crop-top trend, Olivia Palermo & Jessica Alba picked black short sweaters to highlight their beautiful light-colored skirts and make them pre-fall appropriate. With an evening clutch and embellished pump, Olivia Palermo’s combo is great for a night-out or an event. Jessica Alba dressed the similar combo street chic by accessorizing it with a hobo bag and fabulous sunglasses.

From the bags they carried, you can get an idea of this season’s bag trend: yes, instead of making a statement, this season, let your bag blend in and be part of your outfit.

不知道你是不是像我一样,衣橱里躺着几条精美的丝绸或刍纱的长裙,等着某个特别的日子再拿出来穿,但几年过去了,还躺在衣柜底,一次都没碰过。今天的两个造型或许能给我们灵感,多做些尝试,搭配日常穿着的单品,比如毛衣T恤帽衫运动夹克,让这些看似特别场合才穿的单品多见些阳光。

纯美的颜色、独特的细节设计和精美的面料让Olivia Palermo和 Jessica Alba所穿的这些淡雅的长裙公主般梦幻。搭配上大热的短款毛衣,平衡了它们的隆重感,深色调也使这身look更适合渐冷的天气。通过变换配饰就能让这些搭配适合不同场合:可以像Olivia Palermo一样加上精美的手拿包和水晶装饰的高跟鞋,适合约会、参加晚宴或其它正式活动;或像Jessica Alba所示范的,加上休闲风的斜挎包、太阳镜凉鞋,打造适合白天出街,轻松又抢眼的look.

提到包款,与以往抢眼的设计不同,今年秋冬服装唱主角,所以包款的选择上,要能与服装相呼应,融为一体。

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)!

Today’s wardrobe essential that I want to talk about is denim shirt. Denim is such an iconic fabric that perfectly reflects American spirit. There must be at least one denim piece in every woman’s wardrobe right now: whether jeans, jacket, shorts or, our main focus today, denim shirt.

It’s such a versatile, seasonless and ageless piece: you can wear it with Continue reading Same Basics, Different Looks (Wardrobe Essential Part IV)
