Red/blue is a classic color combination, naturally,  blue jeans are red tops’ best friends. Here, Jamie Chung chose distressed boyfriend version to tone down a structured red blazer while highlighting her beautiful shoes. This look is great for casual occasions where you still want some polish. Nicole Richie’s flared jeans elongated her legs while the retro vibe echoes her contrast trimmed blazer. Change the jeans to a dark washed one, you can wear this to the office too.

In Chinese: 红蓝配是经典配色之一,明暗度和饱和度的不同又可以衍生出很多变化。提到红色外套或小衫,自然会想到配牛仔蓝。想穿得随性又都会感,就选择一条宽松的破洞牛仔裤吧,再加上有设计感的高跟鞋,强烈的反差让人过目不忘;想正式中带些女人味,就选修身的喇叭裤,像Nicole Richie(上图右)的造型,复古感的阔腿裤滚边外套相呼应,加上尖头鞋白衬衫就是能点亮办公室的好装扮,想再增加正式感,就换成深色水洗款

If you ask me what to pack for a trip to Europe, the first thing that comes into my mind should be a pair of navy/white striped wide-leg pants! Whether walking round in Paris, enjoying dinner in Greek, or soaking up the sun in Mediterranean, it just fits all the scene perfectly, let alone how versatile and practical it is:

The silky breezy material and comfy loose fit make it great for traveling; the chic and luxe vibe make it easy to transform when arrive at your destination: with wedges/flats for day or stilettos for night. The classic color combo just goes with every top you bring.  After the vacation, you can wear it straightly to the office with a tailored blazer and structured tote!

When choosing yours, those with vertical stripes and high waist design are more flattering and leg-elongating. Also, don’t take “wide-leg” too literally. Find one that is relatively slim fitting. Pair it with fitted, sleeveless tops to get the right balance, like today’s featured ladies did.

In part two of our “Summer Shorts” series, I want to talk about a specific catalog of the beloved denim shorts — the distressed ones. The worn out look lends more carefree, edgy and relaxed vibe to our outfit.

It’s such a versatile piece that can be worn year round and paired with almost anything: With an animal print top as seen on Heidi Klum (above left) for an edgy, adventurous look; With a retro pleated high neck top as seen on Nicole Richie (above right) for an urban bohemian look; With an ethnic graphic sweatshirt for a globetrotter girl look; Or with a silk striped blouse for a city chic look, and the list goes on… When temperature drops, top it off  with a leather jacket or structured coat, as Alexa Chung did here.

When it comes to accessories, ankle boots, studded belt, hobo bag, aviator sunglasses are it’s best friends. They echo the edgy, relaxed and youthful vibe of distressed denim, great for a feminine meets masculine look.
