Short coats and jackets are great transitional pieces, they keep us warm without the heaviness of a long coat. I love how today’s featured ladies played with proportions by teaming skinny bottoms with their cocoon coat and fluffy fur jacket, respectively. Bringing in light, bright colors is also a great way to get in the mood for spring, like the convertible metal bar red bag and white sweater on Kate Hudson.

In Chinese: 短大衣或夹克是换季时的衣橱救星,保暖的同时又没有秋冬长大衣的厚重感。想要更显轻巧,比例就很重要了,今天的这两个造型里看到的上宽下窄的结构就是典型的比例搭配法。引入淡雅或明艳的色彩也是乍暖还寒时点亮心情的好办法,比如Kate Hudson的这款当红的金属杠手包和她身上的白毛衣。

Close followers know my love of stripes: There are countless outfit inspirations about stripes in my posts, and I personally collect striped pieces in various colors, scales, materials, cuts and shapes.

Although been popularized by Coco Chanel, stripes have a resort-related, laid-back vibe naturally. To polish them up, choose black/white or navy/white version in structured blazer or lady like dress silhouette, like the sophisticated A-line and sleek sheath versions on today’s featured stars above.

When it comes to styling: bright colors are their best friends. A splash of saturated primary color like sunny yellow, classic red or cobalt blue really makes the stripes pop.

Another fun way to play with it is mixing prints: teaming stripes with polka dots, animal prints or floral patterns. The key is keeping them in a similar scale or stick to the same color palette.

In Chinese: 不少常联系的读者朋友都知道我喜欢条纹,不仅我的博文里收录了很多和条纹有关的搭配,而且我的衣橱里挂满了各种颜色、质地、面料和剪裁的条纹单品。

看到条纹,大家往往会联想到运动,度假等休闲娱乐活动。要想把它穿得正式优雅,选择黑白深蓝与白的经典搭配,修身的条纹小西服或典雅的条纹裙装也能让这个活泼的图案添几分正式感。

在搭配上,高饱和色是黑白条纹最好的朋友,如宝蓝明黄亮红等。今年流行的荧光色也能让条纹变得更抢眼活泼。此外,还可以把条纹和其它的经典图案混搭起来,比如波普圆点、动物纹或花朵图案。混搭的一个小贴士:保持图案的大小相对一致,或在同一个色系里。

With summer’s end in sight, any opportunities to wear flowy dresses or mini skirts are precious. To dress for the chilly days while still looking cheerful and summery, choose printed long sleeve blouses or dresses in lightweight fabric or with eye-catching prints. The covered arms balance bare legs while still capturing a late summer breeze.

For accessories, closed toe shoes like ballet flats, suede loafers or the newly minted spectator shoes are chic yet functional options. Tote or satchel in grey, brown or burgundy is also a great way to add right amount of weight and coziness in late summer/early fall.

每到夏末,总想起谢雨欣的那句伤感的浅唱–“穿裙子的季节要过去,要被无奈的秋风吹进尘封的往事里”。其实,留心一些小细节,这个时候仍然可以穿着轻盈飘逸的短裙游走大街小巷。比如选择长袖的轻透材质的衬衫长袖的印花连身裙,可以抵御渐凉的气温又保有夏天的轻盈。

凉鞋可以收起来了,包头的芭蕾平底鞋,复古的丝绒包鞋或新近大热的双色拼接牛津鞋都是即舒适,时尚又保暖的选择。灰色、棕色酒红色的大包也能给轻盈的装扮引入些初秋的温暖气息。
