What I love most about fashion is that it’s forever evolving, but for this year’s black and white trend, I wish it could stay. It just so classic, versatile and practical. As long as you pick the right shape and accessories, this combo really can take you anywhere.
Here, Cameron Diaz & Victoria Beckham showed us how to take this trend to the office with the right balance of subdued glamorous and fashion-conscious:
Black pumps and bags are work wardrobe staples, this season, change them into white. Team with a knee-length or below the knee dress. A gold belt or watch adds just the right amount of luxe touch.
Victoria Beckham exemplifies the minimalist chicness. Her ‘secret’ lies in the details: from a sexy heel with metallic accent and flirty V-cut topline, a understated luxurious clutch to a deep V-neck shirt and an impeccable tailored jacket tossed over her shoulders.
In Chinese: 虽然不断的更新与变革是时尚永恒不变的主题，但是对于我喜欢的潮流，有时候真希望它能永恒不变，比如今年大热的黑与白。只要找到对的剪裁和配饰，这个经典的色彩组合可以让我们游走于任何场合。
就拿我们呆的时间最长的办公室来说吧，把以往常备的黑色高跟鞋和公文包换成白色，加上一条黑白拼接的及膝或膝下裙 （Cameron Diaz所穿的这条现在三折！），既符合潮流又优雅端庄。以极简现代风格著称的Victoria Beckham则在细节上脱颖而出，比如她脚上的这双金属跟的鞋（最喜欢楦头的桃心设计！）和低调优雅的手包，披在肩头的外套，低开领的衬衫以及精致的细腰带等。

A fresh new week just started, with coming work and meetings, we definitely need some inspiring outfit ideas to lift up our spirit. Today, I featured two office-friendly looks from leading ladies in fashion industry. Take a hint from them, dress stylishly yet appropriately.
Adding a punch of color through accessories is a great start to try brights in the office: a scarlet skinny belt, a statement bangle, a bright tote, a delicate pump, or even just a pair of colored sunglasses.If you are comfortable with more than one bright color, there are several great combinations to play with: orange and blue/teal (like Miranda Kerr’s orange satchel and blue suede pumps), yellow and purple, green and red.
After you are comfortable with bright colors, feel free to move to colored clothing, they can be totally professional as long as you do it right: Choose those with sleek and classic silhouette and keep them tailored; Pair them with other 9-to-5 staples, like Victoria Beckham did above: a crisp white button down shirt paired with bright orange trousers; Keep the accessories neutral and simple.
