On New Year’s Eve, I always want to wear something glittering & sparkle. Not only do they bring cheerness and joy, but also they bring me the excitement of the unknown, the courage to conquer what lies ahead.

Pair them with the accessories in the same tone to enhance the overall impact. As you can see above,  23 year-old Taylor Swift and 30 year-old Kate Bosworth gave metallics their own spin: one is tough and sexy while the other is demure and graceful. What will you wear?

In Chinese: 每年的跨年派对,我总喜欢穿一些闪亮的东西,比如亮片、金属等,穿起来不但很有节日气氛,而且能带给我对新一年的期盼和兴奋,它们仿佛是我的战袍,穿上它们,就有了勇气面对来年的新挑战。

跨年的时候怎么搭配都不过分,所以配饰、鞋子和手包等也大胆地选择同色系的金属来搭吧!这种“整套”的搭法这一季正流行,就像上面Taylor Swift和Kate Bosworth 所“示范”的一样。而且从她们的搭配也可以看出,金属、亮片也可以很多面哦:20出头的Taylor Swift的装扮酷帅又性感,30+的Kate Bosworth则把亮片穿得优雅乖巧。你跨年打算穿什么呢?

Party Outfits: Fur Coat & Sexy LBDs

Nobody wears fur coats better than Kate Moss. She pairs hers with distressed jeans, denim cutoffs, casual T-shirts or even maxi dresses for care-free day-time looks, and with mini skirts, dresses or lingerie for sexy & glamorous night out looks.

Today’s two outfits of her are perfect examples of how to wear fur coats for fall/winter parties: Since a fur coat is such a strong statement piece, keep the others simple and quiet, like the black LBDs, classic bag and basic pumps showed on Kate Moss; Balance the bulkiness of fur with fitted bottoms or bare legs; Offset its formality with edgy elements and imperfect makeup, like Kate’s bad-girl-vibe leather dress and her signature tousled tresses.

All these pieces are fashionable yet classic wardrobe staples that worth to invest in and will accompany us many years, together they result outfits that are smarter balanced, great for any age!

In Chinese: 在我看来,没有人比Kate Moss更会穿皮草。她会配上牛仔、皮裤、海魂衫等打造白天出街的轻松又有气场的造型;晚上参加派对时则把皮草大衣随性地裹在紧身小黑裙外,保暖又性感。

今天所选的她的这两个皮草大衣的造型就很适合秋冬的派对或约会。因为皮草外套本身就是很有存在感的单品,所以搭配时尽量选择线条和颜色简单的单品,比如Kate Moss身上的小黑裙、经典款的小香包优雅的高跟鞋等。贴身的下半身可以降低皮草大衣的臃肿感。同时要加入一些年轻化的元素给皮草“减龄”,比如单宁、皮革条纹等。略凌乱的发型和这一季流行的“不完整”的妆容等都能给一贯感觉老气的皮草增加潮流和随性感。

这两身造型中搭配到的皮草大衣、小黑裙和经典的红底鞋等都是衣橱必备的单品,不退流行,值得我们去投资,而且在各个年龄段都能穿。
