Boxy Blazer & Denim Cutoffs

The blazer/jacket section is a ever-growing part in my wardrobe. I’m a firm believer that a great blazer is investment-worthy, and it can instantly make an outfit look sharp and polished. Here, Rihanna balanced her boxy pinstripe version with distressed denim cutoffs and feminized the look with sexy heels and bold red lips.

In Chinese: 我投资最多,平时也最喜欢买的大概就是西装外套了。多年积累下来,我的衣橱里已经有各种材质、颜色和图案的西装外套了。它们四季皆宜,好搭实穿,可以瞬间让即使最普通邋遢的造型利落有型。比如今天所选的这个造型里,蕾哈娜(Rihanna)用极短的破洞牛仔裤平衡她略带箱型剪裁的外套,性感的系带高跟鞋红唇注入了女人味。

Today’s featured ladies showed this spring’s key words: crop, flare, floral, art, pink, white and futuristic. I also love how they rocked the crop top trend in a tasteful way by teaming with high-waisted shorts and skirt, respectively. The floral car coat and edgy leather jacket also help balance the sexiness.

In Chinese: 这一季春夏的很多流行元素都集合在今天的这两个造型里了:短款的剪裁、女性化的线条、花朵的图案、艺术品般的视觉冲击以及色彩上的粉、白等等。对于持续大热的露脐装,学学她们,配上高腰的短裤伞裙,把露肤度拿捏得恰到好处。箱型外套硬朗的机车皮衣也很好地平衡了短打装的性感。

Denim overalls, which are related to workwear or our childhood memories, are now making a strong fashion revival. To better style them, I picked four of my favorite looks from style savants, hope they can inspire you to master this trend.

Keira Knightley’s look below may be the easiest way to style an overall, also the closest to its utility root. Striped top, sneakers and glasses invoke the preppy vibe of denim overalls.

Blogger Sara Strand made a few changes to avoid looking too juvenile: ankle strap heels, leather biker jacket, fine jewelry and cool sunglasses gave the overall shorts and striped sweater combo an urban chic vibe.

Selena Gomez updated denim overalls with right-on-trend crop top. Tassel scarf, metallic accent sandals and structured leather bag infuse femininity and urban bohemian to the look.

Rihanna’s look is my favorite. By staying in a simple and refreshing color palette, balancing masculine and feminine, and of course, with her signature nonchalant attitude and free spirit, she blended several hottest trends (the bomber jacket, cropped top, overalls, white add-ons) harmoniously together.
