Oversized coat is very nostalgic for me. For some reason, I associate it with wisdom and power, especially when the collar is up, the hem is flying with every step…maybe I watched too much Detective Conan in middle school.

Back to today’s featured outfits, I love how Poppy Delevingne added a fun and feminine flair to her masculine grey coat (above left), and turned down her luxurious, cape-like red coat with white crochet, heavily distressed denim and fun prints.

In Chinese: 不知道为什么,我总是潜意识里把这种长大衣和智慧、权力联系起来,尤其是把领子竖起来,长长的下摆随着步幅摇曳,再加上墨镜和礼帽,气场十足。也许是中学时名侦探柯南看太多了额。。

言归正传,看看Poppy Delevingne怎么搭配这种难驾驭的长大衣吧:第一个颇有硬朗风的灰色箱型大衣,她配上了有趣的波普衬衫和性感凉鞋;第二个有点像大斗篷的奢华的红色外套,她则配上了不羁的破洞仔裤和甜美学院风的镂空白毛衣和小衬衫。配饰上可爱圆点和狂野蛇纹的混搭也是出人意料又令人赞叹。

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?

Spring 2014 is a season to embrace bold colors and patterns. Buzzwords contain midi dresses, florals, pop-art and more. It’s definitely time to shine, are you ready?

Besides the trend, there is another thing we can learn from today’s featured ladies: To pull off the rare combination of rock edge and retro glamour, add characters with accessories, like the refined T strap pump, chunky oxford‘Rockstud’ shoes and bags showed above.

In Chinese: 今年春夏一反去年单调的黑与白,变得鲜艳、奔放、大胆。大伞裙、花朵、当代艺术等都是T台上传递出的关键词。你准备好了吗?

要想把这些带有复古元素的单品穿出现代感,配饰就很关键了,像上面这几位时尚偶像身上所看到的厚重的鞋款以及铆钉等硬朗的元素是这些女人味十足的裙装最好的配搭‘伙伴’。
