Victoria Beckham’s style has definitely evolved a lot after she becomes a designer. Sky high heels and bodycon dresses used to be her signature. Now she is more relaxed, and willing to try new styles, from comfy flats to menswear tailoring, from flirty flare to drop waist design… It’s interesting and so inspiring to witness an icon’s change, right?

In Chinese:  从辣妹到辣妈,从歌手到设计师,维多利亚·贝克汉姆身份的转变也伴随着她穿衣风格的改变,过去恨天高的鞋和凸显身材的包身裙是她的标志,现在随着她设计师之路的成功,平底鞋、男装剪裁、褶边伞裙或下垂的腰线等不再一味强调性感的元素也常在她身上看到。能目睹一代偶像仍在不断学习、进步和追求完美的过程总是让人感慨良多,也获益良多,对吗?

Tomboy Chic: Turtleneck Sweater & Menswear Oxford

I always appreciate about being a woman: we have way more options when it comes to clothing and accessories. But somehow, it’s those pieces we borrowed from men become permanent residents in our forever changing wardrobe, like the turtleneck sweater and lace-up Oxford spotted on today’s featured ladies.

When rocking the tomboy style pieces, the key is balancing them with feminine touches, like the satin blouse, red nails of Olivia Palermo, or the ladylike bag of Charlize Theron. Rolling up sleeves or cuffs to show the slimmest part of your body is also a great way to add that subtle sexy touch.

In Chinese: 每当我老公抱怨商场里卖的女装总比男装多得多时,我总是很庆幸自己身为女人有这么多选择。但奇怪的是,衣橱里我最喜欢、每次清理都舍不得扔的却是那些从老公衣橱里“借”来的单品,比如机车皮衣、军装夹克,还有从上面的两个时尚偶像身上看到的高领毛衣和系带牛津鞋等。

搭配这些男孩风单品的关键在于用女人味去平衡,比如Olivia Palermo所穿的精致的丝缎衬衫,紧腿裤,或者Charlize Theron所拿的优雅的裸色手包等。另外,随意地卷起袖口或挽起裤腿,露出纤细的手腕脚踝也能增加帅气的性感。小细节也不容忽视,比如红色的甲油或唇彩,或一枚别致的戒指、手环等。

Transitional Dressing: Sleeveless Coat & Menswear Shoes

Besides celebrity street styles and models off-duty looks, I’m always looking for outfit inspirations from fashion editors, bloggers and photographers. Alexia Niedzielski, who I deeply admire, is definitely one of them.

Above I featured two outfits of her that are great for this time of the year. These looks combined some of the season’s hottest trends, like oversized coat, color red and menswear shoes.

Teaming trendy pieces with basics (like the simple T-shirts, jeans and leather shorts on her) is an easy and smart way to keep up with trends while standing out as elegantly characterful.

In Chinese: 除了明星和超模的街拍look外,能给我很多灵感的还有一些有自我风格和态度的时尚编辑、摄影师和博主。今天的这一位就是其中的代表–来自巴黎的摄影师和Ever Manifesto杂志的创始人Alexia Niedzielski。

她的这两个look很适合早秋,而且融入了这一季最新的时尚元素像宽松的外套、红色男士鞋款、未来感的配饰等。把流行的单品和你平时常穿的基本款搭配起来是既容易操作又聪明的搭配方法,彰显时尚品味的同时又不失个人风格。
