Fashion world gets nostalgic with the return of sneakers, friendship bracelets, and.. our featured piece today–overalls. Since we are not going back to childhood, pair your overalls with feminine pieces like the fresh cut-out tank on Alessandra Ambrosio and sophisticated cap toe ballet flat on Alexa Chung.

Speaking of Alexa Chung’s outfit, notice how she wears her trench coat? Sometimes, fashion is not about what you are wearing, but how you wear. All the pieces on her are classics we may already have in our closet, just by casually draping the coat over her shoulders like wearing a cape, she made the overall look fresh and current.

In Chinese: 时尚风向引着我们回到了小时候,和小伙伴们互编的手链、运动鞋、还有上面这两个造型里看到的背带裤等已连着火了好几季,就像国内流行海魂衫和回力鞋一样。因为背带裤本身就是孩子气很浓的单品,所以搭配时就尽量不要再配学院风的衬衫或T恤了,选择女人味的单品,比如超模Alessandra Ambrosio的白色镂空上衣或Alexa Chung的优雅拼色芭蕾鞋。Alexa Chung身上的这些单品都是常见的经典款,她把风衣披着穿,就给了这个看似平常的造型以新意和气场。有时候,时尚不在于你穿什么,而在于你怎么穿。对吗?

Casual Chic: Newsboy Cap & Chunky Knit

The key for casual yet pulled-together outfits is getting the proportions right, as showed above, pair oversized chunky knit with leggings or team slouchy boyfriend jeans with fitted tops.

Blake Lively’s look is comfy yet sexy, great for brunches, a relaxed dinner, or hanging out with friends; Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s look is sporty and laid-back, perfect for running errands or holiday shopping.

A stylish hat is a great piece to throw on when you don’t have time to style your hair but still want to look polished.

This weekend marks the start of holiday shopping, here I want to share with you some of my favorite promotions that are going on right now:

Last but not least, the beloved 3.1 Phillip Lim mini Pashli satchel  is on sale here! As the perfect everyday bag, it’s a great gift for your mom, sister, BFF or stylish aunt!

Wish you all safe, happy and stress-free holidays. Good luck!

In Chinese: 今天的这两个look很适合假日季。Blake Lively的搭配舒适又不失性感,很适合和好友聚会,吃早午餐或者约会;Rosie Huntington-Whiteley的搭配则更休闲动感,很适合外出采购或逛街。

看起来慵懒休闲不等于邋遢,关键在于掌握好比例,比如穿宽松的大毛衣时搭配紧身的牛仔裤或内搭裤,相应地,搭配男友风的直筒牛仔裤或运动裤时,选择稍微贴身的上装。

另外,加入一些女性化的元素,比如漂亮的手包或高跟鞋,露出纤细的手腕脚踝等也是平衡过于休闲着装的好贴士。秋冬时帽子更是实用又能增加时尚感的小物,没有时间打理发型时,加上一顶有性格的帽子就可以美美地出门了。

黑色星期五标志着美国假日购物季的开始,上面我列了一些最吸引我的折扣促销和大家分享。祝我们都能度过一个健康、平安、轻松愉快的假日!

As you can see from the four looks above, today our featured item is the classic denim jacket, in particular the cropped, medium to dark wash version. This shade goes with everything and is great for year-round wear. The cropped length is versatile and leg-elongating!

During spring/summer, I especially love paring it with soft, delicate feminine pieces, like floral or lace sundresses on the ladies above. With comfortable walking booties or sneakers, the finishing outfit can take you from street to beach. With sexy stilettos and scarlet lips, January Jones even worn it to the red carpet!

This summer, wherever you go, pack your favorite denim jacket with you!
