Small details make a huge difference, especially in fashion world. More often, it’s the little things, accessories or splashes of color, liven up an outfit while tie everything together, as showed above: A spike bracelet edges up a ladylike dress; A mustard heel adds fun to black/white polka dots; A red stiletto pops against a neutral palette; A layered pearl necklace balances the youthful stripes; A peplum hem updates a classic pencil skirt, let alone that bold, delectable hot pink hue!

In Chinese: 细节决定成败,这句老话更应验在我们的日常着装中,很多时候正是一些小配饰或者点缀其间的那一抹亮色让我们的搭配脱颖而出,就像今天的这组给了我很多搭配灵感的图集中所展示的一样:庞克风格的配饰冲淡了裙装的甜腻,彩色的跟鞋给波普图案增添了更多趣味和活力,亮红的绑带高跟鞋让中性色的套装不再单调,富于层次感的珍珠项链平衡了条纹的休闲感,更不用说最近大热的这条亮粉色的花苞裙了!

Kate Middleton’s Chic Pregnancy Style

What to Wear During Pregnancy; Kate Middleton maternity/pregnancy style; Maternity dresses; Maternity jeans.

I’m current in my eighth month of pregnancy. Keeping stylish when due date approaching isn’t easy. Nothing seems right with a big bump. A maxi dress or a maternity top and jeans combo just makes me tent-like from the side. Thankfully, it hasn’t been too hot here in New York, which means I can add another layer out of my dress or Tee: a thin coat, a blazer or a vest. This layer does all the magic: the tailored silhouette reduces the bulkness and instantly polishes up the whole look.

This little trick is “proved” right by style savvy Kate Middleton. As you can see from the above two chic maternity looks: a black peplum jacket reshaped her upper half while elongating her legs.  A season appropriate stone color trench coat brightens up her face, covers up her bump and elevates a casual outfit.
