As we said in Part 1 of this summer dressing series, nothing is as easy yet eye-catching as a maxi dress. If you get tired of basic black, grey or striped versions, try these two, each hits one hot trend this summer: western floral pattern and drop-waist silhouette. I love how these two fashion savvies modernized the revived trends with edgy, minimalist accessories, like the peep toe sandals and sleek tote on them, respectively.

In Chinese: 就像我们昨天在第一部分聊到的,长裙是夏天好穿又好看的必备单品。如果你已经有了黑白或条纹等基本款,今天的这两条你一定不能错过:西部风情的花朵裙和下腰线的棉布裙。对于这两件复古风格的单品,两位超模有着不同的演绎:罗西·汉丁顿-惠特莉(Rosie Huntington-Whiteley)的帅气踝靴中和了花朵裙的女人味,米兰达·可儿(Miranda Kerr)低调简约的手包平底鞋为甜美的造型加入了现代感。

On scorching summer days, all we want is a flowy maxi dress, slip on, we are ready, or almost: For effortless dressing like this, you need to put a little more effort in: a pair of trendy shades, edgy sandals, an eye-catching bag or dainty jewelry… it’s the extras that make a simple maxi stand out.

In Chinese: 一条飘逸的吊带长裙是酷暑的首选。连鞋子都盖住的摇曳及地款更是套上就可以出门的清凉必备。但是时尚往往要拧着来,花了心思的要看起来像没有花心思,反正,像这种傻瓜穿搭就需要加些功夫才能脱颖而出,比如简单的一件式长裙加上潮派太阳镜、酷酷的铆钉鞋出挑的小包精巧的细手环等等。

A summer wardrobe won’t be complete without a great pair of denim cutoffs. One Teaspoon has the coolest pairs that are widely loved by celebrities and fashion bloggers. This pair is my personal favorite. I adore the undone hem, shredded holes and the retro wash. My favorite parts are the flattering high-rise and the cut: The outseam length is shorter than inseam length, which help elongate our legs. Pair it with something not too casual like the sexy pinched waist knit tank on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley or the tailored blazer on Alessandra Ambrosio. Finish the look with some gold accents. This season, the classic black/gold combination is back!

In Chinese: 夏天的衣橱当然少不了一条好的牛仔短裤。平价品牌One Teaspoon的破洞仔裤深受明星和时尚博主的追捧。这一条经典款有它标志性的仿旧处理和复古水洗。我最喜欢的是它中高腰的设计和很重要一个拉长腿型的细节:外短内长的剪裁。对这种街头风十足的酷帅单品,搭配上女人味的修身针织背心或正式感的西装外套,更有时尚感。配饰就选择金色来呼应这一季又回来的黑金风潮吧!
