Oversized coat is very nostalgic for me. For some reason, I associate it with wisdom and power, especially when the collar is up, the hem is flying with every step…maybe I watched too much Detective Conan in middle school.

Back to today’s featured outfits, I love how Poppy Delevingne added a fun and feminine flair to her masculine grey coat (above left), and turned down her luxurious, cape-like red coat with white crochet, heavily distressed denim and fun prints.

In Chinese: 不知道为什么,我总是潜意识里把这种长大衣和智慧、权力联系起来,尤其是把领子竖起来,长长的下摆随着步幅摇曳,再加上墨镜和礼帽,气场十足。也许是中学时名侦探柯南看太多了额。。

言归正传,看看Poppy Delevingne怎么搭配这种难驾驭的长大衣吧:第一个颇有硬朗风的灰色箱型大衣,她配上了有趣的波普衬衫和性感凉鞋;第二个有点像大斗篷的奢华的红色外套,她则配上了不羁的破洞仔裤和甜美学院风的镂空白毛衣和小衬衫。配饰上可爱圆点和狂野蛇纹的混搭也是出人意料又令人赞叹。

Victoria Beckham’s style has definitely evolved a lot after she becomes a designer. Sky high heels and bodycon dresses used to be her signature. Now she is more relaxed, and willing to try new styles, from comfy flats to menswear tailoring, from flirty flare to drop waist design… It’s interesting and so inspiring to witness an icon’s change, right?

In Chinese:  从辣妹到辣妈,从歌手到设计师,维多利亚·贝克汉姆身份的转变也伴随着她穿衣风格的改变,过去恨天高的鞋和凸显身材的包身裙是她的标志,现在随着她设计师之路的成功,平底鞋、男装剪裁、褶边伞裙或下垂的腰线等不再一味强调性感的元素也常在她身上看到。能目睹一代偶像仍在不断学习、进步和追求完美的过程总是让人感慨良多,也获益良多,对吗?
