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。

Besides ice cream, nothing beats the heat than a lightweight flowy skirt/dress and sandal combo. Here, Miranda Kerr showed us how to stay pretty and glamorous in this beloved summer ‘uniform’.

The two beautiful, eye-catching maxi skirts on her are definitely the centerpiece. The prints look like art, combined with the easy breezy sheer material, perfect for summer! The sophisticated color and abstract pattern make them great for any age. The best part? They are from affordable Topshop!

For the first look, a basic black top highlights the skirt, the halter neck design alone with T-strap sandals make the look cool and summery. An It bag that has been spotted on her countless times and a red lip dress up the otherwise laid-back outfit while keeping the color scheme sophisticated.

Add a blazer and a ballet flat or heel sandal, you can wear this to the office too. Deep blue color makes this skirt can be easily transformed for fall with a leather jacket and ankle booties.

Last time, I shared a versatile “uniform” that’s great to wear year-round. Today, as another weekend is coming, I want to share an ageless, flattering, casual “uniform” that’s perfect for warm weather: sleeveless top + maxi skirt.

By pairing with tops in different colors, prints, materials, shapes or styles, a maxi skirt can result variety of outfits that are great for all summer events. When combined with accessories, the list of outfits can be endless.

As you can see from above two looks, Miranda Kerr and Heidi Klum perfectly showed us how to play with this “formula” at different ages: For women in their 30s or under, have fun with your maxi skirts, choose leopard, floral or striped ones, pair them with a slouchy tank top, studded booties and straw fedora for an urban-bohemian chic look.

When you reach 40, look for high-quality pieces in graceful colors: black, olive or aubergine colored maxi skirts with great drape are elegant, and easy to transform for many occasions. Instead of pairing them with graphic Tee or casual tank top, choose silk blouse or cami, which shows the mature sexiness.

Wedge sandals are comfy for walking around while giving you the extra height and femininity. Bright colored, trendy or even whimsical accessories are great ways to show your fashion taste without looking overdone.
