Happy 2014 everyone! How is your New Year’s Eve? With a little one needs to be nursed around the clock, I opted out of the hoopla and stayed at my warm home with loved ones.
Kick off the first day with two classic, cozy yet fashionable looks. Cable knit sweaters are very nostalgic for me, growing up seeing heavy snow every winter, I can’t live without them. How to update? Play with textures by pairing them with tough leather or flowy chiffon; Also incorporate trendy elements, like the pleats (prepare to see them a lot next spring), skirts in midi length, and punky zips or studs seen on today’s featured fashion experts.
In Chinese: 新年快乐！你的新年前夜是怎么度过的呢？带着襁褓里的宝宝，又赶上纽约气温骤降，我只好选择呆在家里，不过和家人在一起，其乐融融，也很惬意。

Black and white epitomize the modern simplicity, but today’s featured fashion maven reinterpreted this classic combination: By adding ethereal white skirt, jeweled belt and embellished strap pumps, Olivia Palermo gave this monochrome palette a feminine and graceful vibe; By teaming a sheer surplice blouse with an equally eye-catching wide-leg striped trousers, Zanita Morgan made a strong impression that is bold, adventural yet so chic and infectious.
Attention to details always matters: from Olivia Palermo’s impeccable hair and dainty jewelry to Zanita Morgan’s messy waves and revolver pendant necklace, each serves for the overall result and impact.
