Soft pastels are as festival as traditional jewelry tones but more fresh, chic and mod. Today’s featured looks of super models Karlie Kloss & Natalia Vodianova incorporated beautiful turquoise and powder pink, which in my opinion, are “superwoman” outfits that are great for many occasions, whether running errands, last minutes shopping, going to the office, after dark drink, picking up kids from school, or hosting a dinner party.

The key to make pastels cold-weather approved is to add warm textures, like the fur tunic and tweed top showed on the models, respectively. The leather pants, right-on-trend midi skirt and block heel pumps balance out the sweetness of the pastels, making them great for any age!

In Chinese: 相比以往秋冬流行的浓郁宝石色,今年大行其道的马卡龙色系既有同样欢愉的假日感,又多了份别致的清新气息。今天所选的这两个来自超模Karlie Kloss 和 Natalia Vodianova的造型把甜美的马卡龙色上装搭配上了舒适又有复古气息的粗跟鞋、百搭的皮裤以及优雅的铅笔裙,很适合这个时节的各种活动和场合: 既适合通勤、约会,又适合举办派对、采购节日礼品或接送孩子上下学。

秋冬穿这种粉嫩色系的关键在于材质,比如在两位超模身上看到的皮草粗呢等增加了温暖感。深色皮裤和今年流行的有复古风的中长裙优雅的低跟包鞋等平衡了过于甜美的色彩,让40+的妈妈们也可以大胆挑战这些可爱的颜色了。

Coral pink is such a romantic color for spring/summer. When paired with crisp white, the impact is so feminine and fresh. But today’s featured ladies (above) gave this swinging combination two totally different representations:

Miranda Kerr’s wide leg jeans brought her look a 60’s flair. Although by then, stars like Peggy Lipton and Audrey Hepburn liked to flash a little ankle, today we should take a hint from Miranda Kerr, let the hems graze the floor for the leg elongating effect. Heels/wedges are definitely needed for bottoms like this. This look is great for women of any age.

Although Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s crop top is also a retro take, but by topping is off with a sleek structured blazer (like this one), leather pants and metallic cap-toe pumps, she gave the look a more modern and fashion-forward vibe. Changing the crop top to a silk blouse, I can see women in their 40s rock this look beautifully.

Of course, this pink and white combination can be played around more: With biker jacket and safety-pin jewelry, it can be rock chic; With an ikat bag and fringe booties, it can be urban bohemian… the list can go on. Which style will you choose for your pink and white combo?
