In a blink of an eye, we’re approaching the end of summer, which means the sartorial challenge we are facing now is transition dressing. Today’s two outfits from style mavens showed us how to transform summer staples like shorts, clogs and bright accessories into fall with ease. Hint: show a touch of bare skin and stay within a rich, sophisticated palette, like the bordeaux, olive and mustard seen here.

In Chinese: 眨眼的功夫夏天都快要结束了,这也意味了我们在日常着装上面临的挑战要从对抗酷暑转为在夏末秋初的尴尬过渡季如何穿搭了。今天的这两个时尚偶像就示范了如何把夏天的单品,比如短裤、木底拖以及亮色的配饰等穿到秋天。小提示:降低露肤度并选择秋冬常见的优雅色系比如在上面的造型里看到的酒红、芥末黄和橄榄绿等在视觉上给人以温暖的颜色。

Transitional Dressing: White Jeans

Will spring ever come? I can’t believe another storm is coming! While we still need winter coats and heavy boots to combat the cold, a great way to infuse lightness is a pair of fresh white jeans. As seen above, Olivia Palermo & Miranda Kerr both paired theirs with neutral pieces for a sleek graphic impact. These looks are ageless and versatile, comfy yet chic.

In Chinese: 春天在哪里啊,春天在哪里?不敢相信纽约又要迎来一场雪。秋冬的厚大衣和靴子还要再拿出来穿,配上蓝黑的牛仔裤或裤袜总觉得整身装扮太暗,像Olivia Palermo和Miranda Kerr的这种石灰白的紧身裤则刚好提亮,长靴和短靴能穿,和深蓝或黑色等常见的保暖单品配起来很清爽又不突兀。这两个造型保暖、舒适,换上西装外套和高跟鞋,也可以穿去办公室。试试吧!

After the holiday season, my strapless cocktail dresses are just sitting in closet collecting dust. The above four looks really inspired me: by adding pieces under or over it, and combining with different accessories, a night-time strapless dress can definitely see good days! Below I played around this gorgeous classic yet sexy lace dress, resulted in four glamorous ensembles that are great for many occasions: brunch, hanging out with friends, a fun girl’s night out, or even a bridal shower! Hope you enjoy them as I did, and have fun with yours!

In Chinese:  每次一过派对季,我的抹胸小礼裙就被束之高阁了。但是今天的这4个造型给了我很多启发,其实搭配不同的单品和配饰,原本只属于夜晚派对的裙装完全胜任很多日常场合。下面的这四套就是在这些灵感缪斯的启发下,围绕着同一条蕾丝抹胸裙搭配的,你喜欢吗?
