I’m very impressed by Celine Dion’s looks lately. She said that she is in the greatest place in her life. The happiness and joy are surely reflected in her uplifting outfits. Today’s featured looks of her are fresh, trendy with Celine’s classic elegant touches.

Besides teaming skinny bottoms with an oversized winter coat for a well-balanced look, there are more we can learn from her, especially the way she used colors: for graphic black/white color theme, she accessoried with deep, rich jewel tones like emerald green, whereas for softer white/grey color theme, she chose light peachy pink for an oh-so-fresh look. These two outfits are great for any age, get inspired and recreate yours!

In Chinese: Celine Dion 最近的造型让我眼前一亮,正如她在接受采访时所坦言的,她目前处于人生最好的状态,非常满意现在的生活。这种快乐和满足也正反映在她明快、时尚的着装上,比如今天所选的这两个造型,既抓住了这一季的潮流又不失她自己多年来的典雅风格。

我们能从这些搭配里学到很多,我最受益的是她对颜色的敏锐度,比如对于对比强烈的黑白色,用浓郁的宝石色来搭配,像她身上的墨绿色的包和围巾; 反之,对于相对柔和的中性色组合,比如白色和灰色,则用彩度稍低,但明快的粉色、杏色、浅蓝色等来搭配。

For the coming parties, if you want some demure and graceful outfit inspirations, look no further than Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, who is the epitome of elegant dressing.

She knows what suits her best and sticks with it. As you can see above, the cinched waist dresses highlight her tiny waist. The just-above-the-knee length combined with coordinating shoes is prim, flattering and leg-elongating.

When in muted colors like the navy and brown showed above, she uses complementing accessories to add rich textures to her ensembles; Whereas when in bright colors like the cobalt blue and bright red above, she keeps the silhouette simple for a modern, sleek vibe.

In Chinese: 先前我们分享了前卫的数码印花裙经典的小黑裙,今天来看看优雅的A字裙吧。说起优雅,凯特王妃一定会是先冒入我们脑海的时尚典范。她很清楚自己的身材优势,上面的这几个造型中都能看到的收腰款裙装或裙式大衣是她最常穿的。齐膝或膝上一两公分的裙长既显瘦又端庄。简约的一件式洋装或同色系的上下装,搭配裸色或同色的高跟鞋也是她显高又显瘦的小技巧。

另外,当她选择低调的中性色或暗色调的服装时,会选用不同材质的配饰来丰富整体造型,比如前两个造型里看到的麂皮和丝、棉以及锦缎的搭配。反之,当她选择亮色系的服装时,会偏向于剪裁利落的款式简单的配件来增加现代感。

Refined Airport Style: Flounce Skirt & Printed Jacket

T-shirt, jeans and sneakers/boots are what usually come up in our mind when planning trips. Can we stay polished and glamorous on the way to our destination? Today’s featured fashion connoisseurs can tell us how in two simple steps:

First, add one statement piece to elevate the otherwise laid-back, plain look. Take their outfits for example: the black tee and ballet flats on Olivia Palermo, gray shirt and blue jeans on Rosie Huntington are basic pieces we all have and would wear to the airport. Instead of pairing the black tee with jeans or sweatpants, try a right-on-trend flounce skirt, it’s easy yet fashionable, also convenient to transform after you land. Similarly, instead of bringing a hoodie or sweater for a T-shirt-and-jeans combo, try a statement blazer or even just a well-fitted leather jacket, which will instantly polish up your look.

Second, using accessories strategically. Compared to delicate fine jewelry, a unique statement fashion necklace, like this arrow version, will finish off your look with style. You don’t need to worry about damage and the style will go great with all the outfits you bring. Also, think of accessories that are multifunction: A well-made designer satchel can polish up any outfit while fits all your essentials; An oversized sunglasses can ensure you look good without makeup while offer UV protection; A stylish hat can cover your bad hair while keeping your ensemble chic; A fashionable watch can make sure you leave on time while being a statement accessory itself…
