Tips for adhering to a dress code and still be absolutely fashion forward? Playing with accessories! As showed above, it’s that splash of bright elevated these outfits. The small clutch and enviable colorblock pumps on Mandy Moore can help you transform from desk to dinner with ease while the roomy orange/red bag looks as good with a T shirt and slouchy jeans for weekends as it is with a blazer and pencil skirt for the office.

In Chinese: 既要遵守办公室的着装要求,又想展现好品味或者给无聊的制服增加些趣味?那就多花些心思在配件上吧!拼色的、有设计感或有趣的小配饰对整体造型的提升会超出你的想象。比如上面这两个造型,去掉这几个红色、橘色的装点就很平乏了。曼迪·摩尔(Mandy Moore)的这个小手包和让人过目不忘的别致包鞋可以让你从办公室到晚上的约会转换得轻松自如。辣妈杰西卡·奥尔芭(Jessica Alba)的这个好看又实用的双色手包在周末时搭配T恤牛仔裤也一样出彩!

Crop Tops

Crop top is definitely not a youth trend . Pair it with classic high-waisted pencil skirt in graceful midi length as showed above, moms can rock this trend too. As for colors, understated neutrals like black, dove grey or innocent white balance out the sexiness. Since wearing white head to toe may make us look washed out, glowing skin, a bold lip or edgy accessories can help liven up the whole look.

In Chinese: 正大行其道的露脐装绝不是年轻人的专利,搭配上长伞裙或像上面这两个造型里的过膝铅笔裙,妈妈们也完全可以赶这趟潮流的班车,再加上廓形大衣,这种超短上衣甚至可以穿去办公室。在颜色的选择上,低调的黑白灰可以平衡露脐装的性感,不要忘记小细节的重要:亮橘的唇彩、黑色的甲油、金属点缀的手包等都能给整体造型带来大改变。

In honor of the coming vacation, today I picked three of my favorite looks, from emerging star Selena Gomez’s bright and trendy outfit to style-savvy Olivia Palermo’s elegant and mod number to the trendsetter Kate Moss’s boho chic ensemble, hope they can give you more ideas to effortlessly stand out in parties. The best tip? Let one piece be the focal point and build your outfit around it, like the crop top on Selena Gomez or the fringe kimono on Kate Moss.

In Chinese: ‘派对季’正式来临了!今天我选了三个最喜欢的派对造型,涵盖了不同年龄段 (从20出头的Selena Gomez到近40的Kate Moss)以及不同的风格(有端庄优雅的,可爱潮派的,或都市嬉皮风的),希望能给你的派对着装更多灵感。从这些look里学到的最好的贴士就是不要贪心,选一个单品作为整身着装的重点,比如Selena Gomez的短款露脐装或Kate Moss和服式的流苏外套,然后用低调的基本款来做衬托。
