Floral prints are as classic as stripes and polka dots. They have been embraced by people of all ages (from teenage girls to their grandmas). Since some floral patterns do have the potential to make us look tacky, I always look for those with a retro flare and a sophisticated color palette, like the two featured below. Then use modern and edgy accessories to add urban chicness to the look. The on-trend birkenstock, mesh booties, streamlined bag and cat-eye sunglasses seen on today’s featured stars are the best illustrations.

In Chinese: 花朵是和条纹、圆点一样经典的图案,而且老少皆宜。但是花朵穿不好容易显得俗气。我个人喜欢寻找那些色调淡雅的有复古风情的印花单品,比如下面看到的这两条裙子,搭配上有现代感的元素形成冲突。今天的这两位偶像身上看到的勃肯鞋网纱踝靴简约的两用包以及猫眼太阳镜等就是这种混搭的最好诠释。

In honor of the coming vacation, today I picked three of my favorite looks, from emerging star Selena Gomez’s bright and trendy outfit to style-savvy Olivia Palermo’s elegant and mod number to the trendsetter Kate Moss’s boho chic ensemble, hope they can give you more ideas to effortlessly stand out in parties. The best tip? Let one piece be the focal point and build your outfit around it, like the crop top on Selena Gomez or the fringe kimono on Kate Moss.

In Chinese: ‘派对季’正式来临了!今天我选了三个最喜欢的派对造型,涵盖了不同年龄段 (从20出头的Selena Gomez到近40的Kate Moss)以及不同的风格(有端庄优雅的,可爱潮派的,或都市嬉皮风的),希望能给你的派对着装更多灵感。从这些look里学到的最好的贴士就是不要贪心,选一个单品作为整身着装的重点,比如Selena Gomez的短款露脐装或Kate Moss和服式的流苏外套,然后用低调的基本款来做衬托。

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.
