Why I love the look: Accessories modernized a timeless dress, from edgy jewelry to minimalist clutch to sleek pumps. This is a perfect modern bridal look, also great for formal events or a fancy dinner.

Style Tip: Metallic accessories (bags and shoes) are right way to go this season, mirrored silver or iridescent lucite are perfect for spring and summer.
When wearing light colors, a bright lip is a simple trick to not looking washed out.

In Chinese: 极简未来风的配件让飘逸性感的白色及地长裙有了硬朗和现代感。这个造型适合正式晚宴、活动或派对。对于追求简约现代感的都市女性,这还可以作为一个出挑的婚礼造型。

Transitional Dressing: Sleeveless Coat & Menswear Shoes

Besides celebrity street styles and models off-duty looks, I’m always looking for outfit inspirations from fashion editors, bloggers and photographers. Alexia Niedzielski, who I deeply admire, is definitely one of them.

Above I featured two outfits of her that are great for this time of the year. These looks combined some of the season’s hottest trends, like oversized coat, color red and menswear shoes.

Teaming trendy pieces with basics (like the simple T-shirts, jeans and leather shorts on her) is an easy and smart way to keep up with trends while standing out as elegantly characterful.

In Chinese: 除了明星和超模的街拍look外,能给我很多灵感的还有一些有自我风格和态度的时尚编辑、摄影师和博主。今天的这一位就是其中的代表–来自巴黎的摄影师和Ever Manifesto杂志的创始人Alexia Niedzielski。

Party Time: Dress Up Your Sweaters

When we think of pullovers, we think of a relaxed Sunday stroll or coffee runs, but how about styling them for an event, a sweet date or a party?

Here, Jamie Chung opted for a beloved juxtaposition: stripes and florals. The key is keeping the prints in the same color family. Her cutout booties match the stripes on her sweater while a mirrored clutch adding a futuristic edge. I love a great bodycon dress, which can be restyled as a top or a skirt without the extra bulk.

Hailee Steinfeld’s look is fashionable yet age-appropriate. The signature lips sweater on her is by Markus Lupfer, and I’m obsessed with all the graphic tops he designed. You can style them with a blazer, a leather jacket, a pencil skirt or, for the young ones, a flirty skater skirt like Hailee Steinfeld did above. They will add a playful attitude to any look, formal or casual.

In Chinese: 想到线衫,我们都会把它和休闲场合联系起来。但有没有想过穿着这些“休闲”的单品出席正式活动、派对或者浪漫的约会呢?

Jamie Chung把它和一条数位印花的裙子搭起来,条纹和印花的组合虽然不再新鲜,但每次看到总是让人眼前一亮。搭配上镂空的踝靴未来感的金属手拿包,时尚中又有自己的态度和个性。一条漂亮的包身裙实用又百变,既可以单穿,又可以当上衣或裙子来做不同的搭配。

Hailee Steinfeld的造型时尚又很符合她的年龄。这件红唇线衫Markus Lupfer所设计的众多图案中最具代表性的。这个年轻的来自伦敦的德国设计师设计的每件上衣我都非常喜欢,充满趣味,异想天开的图案无论搭配中规中矩的西服、庞克风的皮衣、女人味的铅笔裙或小女孩的伞裙等都别有一番风味。
