Can’t help sharing another graceful and cheerful look of Kate Middleton during her stay in Australia (see more looks here). Maybe because the effortless style is ubiquitous and has been taken quite literally by many, this neat, pulled-together, made-an-effort look catches my eyes more. The style-driven Princess does have her own subtle mixing and matching way though, which is exemplified with her covetable oversized masculine watch that is glued to her wrist.

In Chinese: 忍不住再分享一个王妃出访澳大利亚的造型(上次分享的两个在这里)。也许因为看多了时尚圈推崇的看似不加修饰的、凌乱的、不完美的混搭美,而且这种风格被越来越多的人滥用,真的就不加修饰地、不加思考地穿搭,所以我现在反而更容易被王妃这种精致、优雅、用了功夫、花了时间达成的美所吸引。她也有符合她风格的低调的“混搭”,比如她手上常带的这支硬朗的男士风格的手表

Denim Jacket and Flowy Dress

How to wear a denim jacket; The Spring 2014 Backpack trend,  On Reese Witherspoon (left): Isabel Marant Étoile Zaggy Stripey Chiffon Dress, Current Elliott The Snap denim Jacket , Chloe 'Medium Paraty' Leather Satchel , Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses, Rag & Bone Harrow Nubuck Ankle Boot, STRAW FEDORA HAT ;  On Reese Witherspoon (right):ELIZABETH AND JAMES Sling textured-leather backpack, STRAW FEDORA HAT, Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses, Sea black and white dot printed dress, red ankle strap sandals; Photos: Reese Witherspoon; Courtesy of akmgsi.com.

Denim jacket and feminine dress is a beloved combo. Depend on the print of the dress and your choice of accessories, this combination can result in countless outfits with totally different styles. As seen from above on Reese Witherspoon: a semi-sheer chiffon dress, ankle boots and retro-vibe hobo bag channel  your inner Gipsy while a modern black and white dot dress, right-on-trend sling backpack, and saturated heels convey urban off-duty chicness. These looks are casual yet pulled-together, great for any age!

In Chinese: 牛仔外套和印花裙的搭配大家已经都不陌生了,但根据裙子的材质、图案、色调以及不同配饰的选择,这个“公式”其实可以衍生出很多种不同风格的造型,比如Reese Witherspoon的这两身:飘逸扎染雪纺裙配上牛仔踝靴复古感的包包,颇有波希米亚风的随性和闲适;经典的黑白及膝裙配上色彩明快的鞋子大热的流行包款则传达出现代的都市休闲感。这些造型不分年龄,从少女到辣妈都可以尝试,你会把这个组合搭出什么样的版本呢?

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’。
