Do you have a delicate, exquisite dress or skirt that has been sitting in the closet waiting for that special moment, which might never come? Well, it’s time to pull it out. Be creative and experimental, make your evening skirt day-time appropriate by teaming it with jumpers, sweatshirts, tees or a bomber jacket.

Here, as a nod to the hottest crop-top trend, Olivia Palermo & Jessica Alba picked black short sweaters to highlight their beautiful light-colored skirts and make them pre-fall appropriate. With an evening clutch and embellished pump, Olivia Palermo’s combo is great for a night-out or an event. Jessica Alba dressed the similar combo street chic by accessorizing it with a hobo bag and fabulous sunglasses.

From the bags they carried, you can get an idea of this season’s bag trend: yes, instead of making a statement, this season, let your bag blend in and be part of your outfit.

不知道你是不是像我一样,衣橱里躺着几条精美的丝绸或刍纱的长裙,等着某个特别的日子再拿出来穿,但几年过去了,还躺在衣柜底,一次都没碰过。今天的两个造型或许能给我们灵感,多做些尝试,搭配日常穿着的单品,比如毛衣T恤帽衫运动夹克,让这些看似特别场合才穿的单品多见些阳光。

纯美的颜色、独特的细节设计和精美的面料让Olivia Palermo和 Jessica Alba所穿的这些淡雅的长裙公主般梦幻。搭配上大热的短款毛衣,平衡了它们的隆重感,深色调也使这身look更适合渐冷的天气。通过变换配饰就能让这些搭配适合不同场合:可以像Olivia Palermo一样加上精美的手拿包和水晶装饰的高跟鞋,适合约会、参加晚宴或其它正式活动;或像Jessica Alba所示范的,加上休闲风的斜挎包、太阳镜凉鞋,打造适合白天出街,轻松又抢眼的look.

提到包款,与以往抢眼的设计不同,今年秋冬服装唱主角,所以包款的选择上,要能与服装相呼应,融为一体。

There is no better example of wardrobe essentials than a classic trench coat. From First World War to the runways to style icon’s wardrobe, trench coat has gone far beyond its practicality and become a timeless, iconic fashion piece. If my words and many stylish women on street wearing their trench coats can’t convince you that how necessary it is, this book can (it’s also a great coffee table book!)

Among so many street style looks that incorporated trench coat, these three above are Continue reading Ways To Style Your Trench Coat for Holiday Activities (Wardrobe Essential Part II)
