With summer’s end in sight, any opportunities to wear flowy dresses or mini skirts are precious. To dress for the chilly days while still looking cheerful and summery, choose printed long sleeve blouses or dresses in lightweight fabric or with eye-catching prints. The covered arms balance bare legs while still capturing a late summer breeze.

For accessories, closed toe shoes like ballet flats, suede loafers or the newly minted spectator shoes are chic yet functional options. Tote or satchel in grey, brown or burgundy is also a great way to add right amount of weight and coziness in late summer/early fall.

每到夏末,总想起谢雨欣的那句伤感的浅唱–“穿裙子的季节要过去,要被无奈的秋风吹进尘封的往事里”。其实,留心一些小细节,这个时候仍然可以穿着轻盈飘逸的短裙游走大街小巷。比如选择长袖的轻透材质的衬衫长袖的印花连身裙,可以抵御渐凉的气温又保有夏天的轻盈。

凉鞋可以收起来了,包头的芭蕾平底鞋,复古的丝绒包鞋或新近大热的双色拼接牛津鞋都是即舒适,时尚又保暖的选择。灰色、棕色酒红色的大包也能给轻盈的装扮引入些初秋的温暖气息。

Vacation Outfit Ideas (Part IV)

What to Wear on a beach vacation; how to wear print dress or skirt, how to wear white, beach outfit ideas 2013; spring/summer, street style;   On Olivia Palermo: white shirt, white mini skirt, gold bracelet, Westward Leaning sunglasses, blue floral print dress, pink ballet flat, straw tote;Photos: Olivia Palermo; Courtesy of starstyle.comoliviasstyle.blogspot.co.uk.

A look back at all the eight simple yet stylish vacation outfits from Olivia Palermo reminds me again how powerful statement accessories can be:

bright or animal print ballet flat adds fun and textures to our looks while being so easy to walk in; A delicate satin heel or eye-catching jewelry piece elevates a simple white dress or shirt; A straw tote or exotic tassel necklace makes an urban look laid-back and beach-ready. Best of all? They don’t take up much precious luggage space.

In Chinese: 我们度假系列中这八个简单又让人耳目一新的着装再次提醒了我们配饰的重要性:一双亮色斑马纹的芭蕾平底鞋既舒适又能增加整体的色彩和趣味;一双精致的高跟鞋或一件抢眼的配饰能让即使最普通的白裙或T恤脱颖而出;一个充满田园气息的编织包或带有异域风情的流苏项链则能瞬间把都市感很强的单品变得休闲起来。最重要的是,它们不会多占用我们行李箱里的宝贵空间。

Whether long or short, various vacations still fill out our August calendar. This four-part series is dedicated to helping you stay chic on the way, all inspired by style savvy Olivia Palermo and her recent trip to Greece.

Straw tote is definitely a summer vacation essential. Its inherent casualness instantly makes any outfit beach ready. Stripes, bright colors and cheerful prints are also essential elements to lighten up a trip.

This season, instead of traditional nautical blue/white pieces, pack the trendy black/white version. They are equally chic, but more sleek and modern, along with a breezy sundress and ballet flat, resulting several effortlessly chic outfits that can take you from the boardwalk to the sidewalk.

In Chinese: 进入8月,仍有不少或长或短的出游计划。看看时尚偶像Olivia Palermo在她最近的希腊之旅中都穿了些什么,从中找些搭配灵感吧。

编织包是海边度假的必备单品,椰叶或稻草的自然气息能瞬间带来轻松愉悦的假日感觉。此外,经典的条纹舒适的吊带裙以及明快的色彩也是点亮旅途的不二选择。说到条纹,相比海边最常见的蓝白条纹,Oliva Palermo所选的黑白更出彩,呼应了本季的流行,搭配时可休闲亦可正式,可以轻松应对旅途中的各种场合。
