How to mix patterns? Olivia Palermo modeled three key strategies: First, keep the patterns in the same scale, like the yellow chain print blouse and black/white wave print skort she worn showed above left; Secondly, tie your patterns together with one or two common colors, as showed above right, Olivia Palermo pulled out the perfect-for-fall burgundy in both patterns, making them blend together harmoniously; Thirdly, tone down the loudness with neutrals, as seen in her first look above, it’s the understated vest, purse and pumps ground the boldness.

In Chinese: 混搭图案有技巧。怎么做到‘乱中有序’呢?和Olivia Palermo学学这三招吧:第一,混搭的两种图案大小相对一致才会有整体感,比如左边的造型中黄色的链条衬衫和黑白的波纹裙;第二,这两种图案最好有一或两个共同色,比如右边的look里,Olivia Palermo用酒红把两件同样抢眼的单品混搭得浑然一体;第三,用一些低调、安静的中性色平衡热闹的图案,比如她的第一个造型里棕灰色的长马甲和相近色的手包、鞋子降低了明度和彩度,使整身look更协调,也更有季节感。

Fall Essentials: Over-the-Knee Boots & Impeccable Coat

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。

Structured blazer and distressed jeans go together like peanut butter and jelly, they compliment each other, and reflect today’s fashion: putting the two opposites together and blurring the boundaries of off-duty & on-duty.

I featured the above two looks incorporated this versatile yet universally flattering combo, showing how these two stylish icons put their own spin on it:

Miranda Kerr’s bow-embellished pointy toe loafer, enviable designer bag and her signature red lip elevate the look, adding a feminine and sophisticated touch to it, while Jessica Alba’s moody floral print top and must-have ankle booties lend an effortlessly chic and cool vibe to her monochrome ensemble.

西装外套破洞牛仔裤的混搭正体现了今天时尚的精髓,一切关乎平衡,把看似不同世界的东西放在一起,不断地挑战和创新,线上、线下,工作、休闲的着装界限已逐渐模糊,方便轻松转换以适应各种场合、并彰显个性的混搭方式越来越受到欢迎。

今天来学学怎么把这个“万能”的组合穿出自己的风格吧:Miranda Kerr的双色拼接的尖头平底鞋方便通勤或购物,又不失女人味,加上经典的爱马仕皮革包和她的标志性红唇,整身look既随性又不失精良的都市感;Jessica Alba的搭配更街头和“庞克”些,个性的黑白灰数位印花T奠定了整身look的基调,一双经典的踝靴更是这个季节必不可少的时尚单品。自然卷、裸妆,和黑色的美甲等细节也呼应了酷帅街头感。
