It’s not the first time I featured Olivia Palermo styling her fur cardigan for day and night (check her previous looks here), today let’s share two more outfits of her, learn how to recycle the same piece for various occasions.

Since fur has the connotation of being formal and stodgy, for a daytime look, we need to downplay it by adding bright colors and youthful elements. Here, Olivia Palermo teamed hers with edgy leather pants and biker boots, and brought in colors via accessories like an artful scarf and cherry red satchel.

For a glamorous evening look, we want to bring out the luxurious side of fur but still keep it up-to-date. Olivia Palermo chose rich jewelry tones like emerald greencrimson red and deep brown for a picturesque fall look and kept it current by mixing this season’s favorite textures and hottest hues. Her bared legs also balanced out the bulkiness of fur.

In Chinese: 上次我们分享了两个Olivia Palermo穿着皮草的搭配,今天再看看这两个造型,学学她怎么用同一件单品搭配出休闲和华贵两种look吧!

皮草总让人感觉太正式,还有些老气。要打造白天出街的搭配,最好用明亮的色彩和年轻的元素打破皮草的奢华和正式感。Olivia Palermo搭配了酷帅的皮裤机车靴,用抢眼的围巾樱桃红的手包等配饰点亮了整身造型,看起来随意又时尚。

参加宴会或派对时,除了凸显皮草的奢华感外,用流行的元素和适度的露肤度给皮草装扮“减龄”。Olivia Palermo身上的墨绿酒红深棕等颜色呼应了皮草的华贵,也符合季节。不同材质的混搭和当季最in色彩的组合让她的装扮得体优雅,又不失流行感。

Winter White: Colorblock Coat & Red Accent

Thanks to the strong black and white trend, not only the traditional winter white shades like eggshell and cream are totally acceptable, the bright whites we usually see in summer are also can, and should be embraced in winter now. A crisp white piece can instantly make a monochrome look modern, sharp and chic.

Here, Miranda Kerr chose the classic white, blue and red color theme, while Lily Collins demonstrated the black & white simplicity. The faux fur coat on Lily Collins is colorblocked, combined with a black jumpsuit, making the stodgy fur youthful and flattering.

I’m glad that the red trend is back this fall. You can team it with almost any color, the combination of red and white is especially fresh and uplifting.

In Chinese: 感谢这几季强劲的黑白风,现在秋冬穿白色的概念已经完全被大家所接受了,而且色调上也不再局限于传统的米白、象牙白,连春夏常见的亮白色、银白色也完全四季皆宜了。

在色彩的搭配上,Miranda Kerr所穿的蓝、白、红以及Lily Collins身上极简的黑与白等都是经典的组合。我尤其喜欢Lily Collins的这件黑白撞色的皮草外套,和黑色的连身裤搭配起来,降低了皮草的正式感又能拉长腿型。

另外,今年红色又回潮了!就像小黑裙一样,每一个人一定有属于自己的那一款红。这个经典的颜色无论和中性的黑白灰,撞色的蓝、绿还是相近的粉或桔搭配起来都很漂亮,和纯白色配起来更是格外醒目。

Party Looks: Sweet Day or Seductive Night

What comes along with our full-swing social calendar is the constant conundrum: “what to wear?” Today, I picked two glamorous party-perfect outfits that are great for most warm weather events: sweet and demure for daytime, sexy and seductive for night-time.

Miranda Kerr has the ability to seamlessly blend hot trends with her signature glamorous style. I think the key is mixing new with old, mixing unexpected things with familiar elements. For example: choose a mirror floral print or embellished lace dress that’s in classic, sleek sheath or slim pencil silhouette; offset bold, bright pieces with quiet, classic items like a black bag or simple pump.

As always, balance is key. Take a hint from Miranda Kerr: If you already choose a printed dress and bright shoes, keep bag neutral and jewelry to a minimum for a fresh yet sweet daytime look; If you want to go bold for night, like the above right look of Miranda Kerr, opt for a bold dress, statement jewelry and scarlet lip, then keep the color palette simple and sophisticated.
