Thanks to Balenciaga & Yves Saint Laurent who first introduced over-the-knee boots to the fashion world in the 60s, and legendary Karl Lagerfeld who popularized them by showing women that over-the-knee boots are a fashionable and practical alternative to leggings, now they already become a fashion staple that we rely on every fall/winter.

From the pioneers who rocked them in the 60s (led a strong trend against the iconic New look from Dior), you know that these babies are bad girls, they are tough, brave and sexy, which we should keep in mind when styling.

The streamlined menswear coat and outstanding cape coat showed on Miranda Kerr echo the cool-girl vibe of these boots. Mini skirts or shorts are the way to go with the high hem. And the best accessories? Your attitude!

膝上靴的流行真的要感谢设计师Balenciaga & Yves Saint Laurent,在上个世纪60年代,他们第一次把这种专门为男士们骑马而设计的鞋款引入了女性时装界。但这种靴型真正流行起来还要感谢Karl Lagerfeld,他在90年代设计的一个秋冬系列里用膝上靴代替传统秋冬穿的厚裤袜,从此每年秋冬,膝上靴就成了我们必不可少的单品了。

至于怎么搭配,回顾它的设计起源能给我们更多灵感。上世纪60年代正是迪奥最著名的new look盛行的时候,膝上靴的酷帅、性感和“坏女孩”的感觉吸引了一批对new look审美疲劳的时尚先驱们。

Miranda Kerr所选的单品,从狮身人面图案的T恤迷你裙男士款的大衣及独特剪裁的披肩外套等,都呼应了膝上靴的这种叛逆感和性感。

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target is my favorite target collaboration so far. The pieces are classic & contemporary, yet with a bold, edgy or fun twist, perfectly meet a modern woman’s need. Today’s featured looks above are great example of how versatile Phillip Lim’s designs is.

Tuxedos are must have for a modern working woman, not only because they can take you from office to cocktail party (a quick change can be as simple as taking off the button-down shirt you wear for the office and button up the jacket to show a hint of cleavage), but also because the separates can be mixed with many other pieces in your closet, be it a fun, whimsical sweatshirt or a bold flirty animal print mini skirt, a futuristic clear stiletto or a studded clutch, let the unexpected juxtaposition show off your taste and unknown side.

3.1 Phillip Lim和Target合作的这个系列是我今年最喜欢的。一如Phillip Lim一贯的设计风格,这些单品经典中有现代感,又不乏有趣或大胆的色彩和细节,完美契合了现代女性工作、娱乐和社交的需求,价格更是亲民。我最喜欢的一点是,他所设计的单品可以随意混搭,从而最大化使用率。

这套藏蓝色的西服套装为例,整套搭配起来既可以穿去办公室又可以参加派对:只需要脱掉你穿去办公室的白衬衫,把西装外套当作上衣来穿,酷帅中带点性感的装扮能让你在一片俗套的抹胸裙中脱颖而出。

把外套和裤装分开来,搭配你衣橱中已有的单品,变化就更多了。无论是搭配一件趣味十足的涂鸦T恤、狂野的动物纹短裙还是未来感十足的透明塑胶金属配饰,发挥创意展现你的时尚品味和不为人知的另一面吧。

Vacation is truly a time when we can dress for the mood: Go simple if ‘what to wear’ is the last thing you want to think about: No-brainer one piece dress, never-fail black and white; Extra bonus for a pop of color–be it a neon ballet flat, a bright orange lip or colored nails;

Go bold if you are in the mood, color burst with bright yellow, pink, green and more, don’t be afraid to add statement accessories, as long as you keep them in a similar tone.

In Chinese: 度假的一个好处是我们可以随着心情穿衣服,不再受各种着装要求的限制了:想穿得简单又出彩,黑白条纹的A字裙是最好的选择了,加上一抹亮色就足以让你脱颖而出:无论是荧光的平底鞋,一抹鲜艳的唇彩还是缤纷的美甲。

想穿得靓丽些,在色彩搭配和饰品的选择上下些功夫吧:鹅黄和浅绿,宝蓝和亮橘,炫紫和明黄等都是对比强烈又有时尚感的组合。如果要再加些配饰,那么尽量保持在一个色调里才不会破坏整体感。
