One reason I really admire Miranda Kerr’s style is the simplicity and versatility, especially after she became a mom. Take these two outfits for example, I can easily picture her wear the left one with a ballet flat or loafer for playing with Flynn, then change her red scalloped pump for business meetings (with an outerwear that is stored in her roomy tote to put on when in the air-conditioned office). In the afternoon, simply change the dressy trousers and heels with a flowy maxi skirt and flat sandals, she looks dinner-ready, and the outfit will be comfy enough for an after-dinner walk too.

In Chinese: 熟悉的读者都知道我非常钟爱米兰达·可儿(Miranda Kerr)的穿衣风格,一个重要的原因是她的造型非常简约而且只需要简单的变化就能适合各种场合,很适合忙碌的上班族,尤其是她自己当了妈妈以后的那些出街造型。比如今天的这两个,左边的搭配换上芭蕾平底鞋或乐福鞋,就可以和儿子去公园玩,换上她的这双侧边有水波装饰的红色低跟鞋,加上放在大包里的外套,就可以去办公室了。下午只要简单地把裤子换成飘逸的雪纺长裙,加上平底凉鞋,和一抹红唇,把长发放下来,就可以去约会了,饭后散步时也看起来清爽舒适又漂亮。

spring summer 2014 outfit ideas; how to wear a maxi skirt,

An effortlessly chic day-time outfit that can be easily transformed into a glamorous night-out look simply by taking off the vest. Put a little thought in the morning, you will move with ease and confidence till dusk. The blush colored tote is such an unexpected finishing touch. I think it works because the pink is very subtle and sophisticated, thus almost works as a neutral, the black handle and dove grey side panels also help it blend harmoniously with the rest.

In Chinese: 我最近最喜欢的一个造型,运用了很多巧妙的搭配技巧却看起来随性自如。更重要的是这套造型可以从早穿到晚:晚上约会或晚餐时只要脱掉马甲就可以了。可见早上出门前多花点心思,一整天都可以游刃有余。这个粉色的拼色手包更是意想不到的搭配,放在这个造型里完全成立的原因在于它的粉优雅柔和,几乎可以算做中性色,而且黑色的手提带和侧边的灰色拼接和裙子的颜色也相互呼应。

Florals are everywhere on the runway this season. Wearing it in a modern and youthful way can be challenging. Lily Collin’s breathtaking dress combines blooming roses and grid-print, her minimalist jewelry and dark red lips keep it mod and sophisticated; Bella Thorne’s striking ball gown maxi dress likes a piece of art. I love how she kept it fresh and fun with a preppy top and a playful strawberry clutch. The best part? These beautiful floral pieces both have side pockets! Seriously, what more can we ask?

In Chinese: 今天春夏花朵当道,但花花的单品穿不好容易显俗气,看看这两个造型吧:Lily Collin的这条抹胸裙结合了流行的花朵和窗棂格纹图案,她用极简的配饰和复古感的妆容让整体造型优雅精致;Bella Thorne的这条及地舞裙色彩奔放,像一件艺术品。这么有挑战性的单品,她却用学院风的针织上衣可爱的草莓手包巧妙平衡,轻松驾驭。另外这两件抢眼的印花单品都有口袋,对于我这种裙子一定要有口袋设计的‘小偏执狂’来说就更难抗拒了!
