As a petite girl myself, I find that the most flattering jackets for me are cropped or hip-length ones. The latter are especially versatile for their seasonless apparel and easy-going vibe: they go great with almost anything, from dresses to leggings, from skinny jeans to wide-leg trousers; they add extra warmth without overwhelming our frame; they are also acceptable indoor & outdoor.

The only downside of hip-length jackets is they can cut our legs. To avoid that, cinch the coat at the waist with a belt or choose those already done for us like this fabulous Reiss jacket on Kate Middleton, which has the feminine fit and flare silhouette and sophisticated clean lines. Style savvy Olivia Palermo used a jeweled brooch to draw eyes up, which also help elongate her legs.

In Chinese: 娇小的女孩选择外套总是特别难。我本身个子也不高,发现有两种类型的大衣很修饰我们的身型:短款的或长到臀部的。尤其是刚好盖过臀部的款式实用又好搭:不分季节,室内室外都可以穿,而且和裙子、裤袜、牛仔裤,甚至阔腿裤都可以配。

这种长度的大衣唯一不好的地方在于会切断我们的腿型,所以选择收腰的款式很重要,比如王妃Kate Middleton身上的这件来自平价品牌Reiss的修身长外套,合身的剪裁、优雅的颜色和简洁的线条是她平时偏爱的穿衣风格。除了收腰款式或用腰带强调腰线外,街拍女王Olivia Palermo也提供了另外一个聪明的办法:用一枚抢眼的宝石胸针当作纽扣让视线停留在腰部,从而拉长了腿型,配上蛇纹的高跟鞋彩色珠宝镶嵌的手包,就能瞬间把适合办公室的黑白造型转换成闪亮的派对着装。

Party Outfits: Nerdy Glasses & Dress Pants

Can’t find the perfect party dress? How about wearing pants instead! I’m a self-proclaimed Jenna Lyons style fanista. These two looks of her made me want to try pants for the coming holiday parties. The way she mixes lux satin, silk or fur with laid-back denim, jersey or cotton, and the way she combines colors are always so unexpected and inspiring.

Besides her chic, borrowed-from-the-boys style, another signature of her is definitely the nerd eyeglasses, which are the epitome of her well-balanced style. My favorite place to get eyeglasses is Warby Parker. The options they have are affordable and greatly crafted. Moreover, for every pair sold, they will distribute a pair to someone in need. So I know I shop for a good cause.

I’m currently obsessed with their new collection collaborated with beloved fashion stylist Leith Clark. You can find smart-looking frames in enchanting cobalt, crystal clear, retro round, flirty cat-eye…and more. Wow, eyeglasses can be so chic and fashionable!

In Chinese: 面对年末纷繁的派对,穿什么总是难题,如果找不到合适的小礼裙,有没有想过裤装也会是不错的选择?J.Crew的创意总监Jenna Lyons是我的时尚偶像,她混搭和配色的功力总是让我惊讶,也给了我很多日常着装的启发和灵感。

除了她那独特的带有男孩风的优雅装扮外,她那副大的黑框眼镜也歪打正着,现在成了她独特的时尚标志之一。这几年平光镜的潮流也让不近视的我加入了“眼镜大军”。在美国我个人最喜欢买眼镜的地方是一个叫Warby Parker的网站,那里的眼镜不但价格很公道,做工也极好。而且每卖出去一副眼镜,他们会捐献一副给需要的人。对我这种购物狂来说,多少减轻了血拼的愧疚感:)现在他们和好莱坞的造型师Leith Clark合作推出了一个新的系列,把眼镜做得更时尚了,有抢眼的宝蓝色、未来感的透明色、流行的猫眼以及复古的圆形镜框等各种各样的选择。
