With a small frame, it really took me a long time to wrap my head around the notion of thigh high boots. After trying out a few, I found that it’s all about the right fit: it has to be slimming from the ankle to the thigh area. About the length, those end below the mid thigh are more flattering and proportional to my frame. When it comes to styling, pair them with casual Tees or girly flare skirts/dresses to keep them from looking too sexy.

In Chinese: 我本身也是矮个儿一族,所以对于大热的大腿靴也是犹豫了很长时间才决定挑战看看。试了几次之后发现只要选对款式,娇小女孩完全可以穿,关键在于靴筒要从脚踝开始就非常服帖,一直到大腿的部分都要合,才会显得腿更纤细修长。长度的话最好在膝盖上三寸左右,不要过高。日常穿搭时配上休闲的条纹T恤、针织衫或女孩风的伞裙来平衡大腿靴的性感。

Spring 2014 is a season to embrace bold colors and patterns. Buzzwords contain midi dresses, florals, pop-art and more. It’s definitely time to shine, are you ready?

Besides the trend, there is another thing we can learn from today’s featured ladies: To pull off the rare combination of rock edge and retro glamour, add characters with accessories, like the refined T strap pump, chunky oxford‘Rockstud’ shoes and bags showed above.

In Chinese: 今年春夏一反去年单调的黑与白,变得鲜艳、奔放、大胆。大伞裙、花朵、当代艺术等都是T台上传递出的关键词。你准备好了吗?

要想把这些带有复古元素的单品穿出现代感,配饰就很关键了,像上面这几位时尚偶像身上所看到的厚重的鞋款以及铆钉等硬朗的元素是这些女人味十足的裙装最好的配搭‘伙伴’。
