As our days become longer and more hectic, the lines are further blurred between work and life. Adding a sporty touch to one’s outfit is not only acceptable, but fashionable from club to boardroom. Here, Emma Stone opted for strategically placed details (from the striped neck on her top to the tapered silhouette and humble, comfy material of her pants) to modernize her otherwise restrained work outfit.  Kendall Jenner offset her sexy sheer crop top with sporty pants, combined with a sophisticated palette, resulting a head-turning look that is anything but kitsch.

In Chinese: 随着我们对能在不同场合自如转换的单品的需求日渐增多,着装界限也日渐模糊。原本不登大雅之堂的运动元素不但因契合现代人的需求而越来越受欢迎,而且更成为了一种时髦的造型方式。今天的两个搭配里,艾玛·斯通(Emma Stone)运用细节,比如条纹装饰的领口以及有运动风格的锥形裤等,让原本乏味的工作“制服”变得时髦有趣。肯达尔·詹娜(Kendall Jenner)则用改良版的运动裤中和她的短款透视装,打造出性感又帅气的派对“战服”。

Crop top, Two Ways

Models off duty, spring/summer 2014 outfit ideas, how to wear crop tops, how to wear sports trend, how to style distressed/boyfriend jeans

Crop tops are much more versatile than you thought, you don’t even have to invest in high-waisted bottoms: take a hint from Miranda Kerr, pull out your trusty boyfriend jeans and be-loved track pants, both help tone down its sexyness, eradicate what deters us the most from testing this hot crop top trend. For accessories, an elevated espadrille and timeless satchel add sophistication to a dark palette while a playful printed duffle and on-trend Birkenstock echo the youthful spirit of the white/blue combo seen on Miranda Kerr (above right). When all else fails, you can still wear them like any other tank tops, with this trick demonstrated by another style savvy Olivia Palermo.

In Chinese: 今年大热的超短款上衣其实很好搭,你甚至不需要另外再投资高腰裤,向米兰达·可儿(Miranda Kerr)学学这两招吧:把露脐装配上松垮的男友风牛仔裤或者酷帅的运动裤,中和这种小上衣的性感。配饰的选择上:她的“升级版”草编鞋和经典的大包为休闲感的造型加入了典雅简约的都市风,是对奢华运动的另一种诠释。对于清爽的白色无袖针织衫破洞牛仔裤的组合,她则用豹纹大包和流行又极舒适的博肯鞋来呼应整体年轻和不羁的感觉。当然,如果你还是对露出小蛮腰有所保留,那别忘了试试来自另一个街拍偶像奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)的这个造型

Sporty Luxe: Mesh Sweater & Track Pants

This season is all about getting sporty. Two key words to keep in mind when rocking the sports trend: 1. ‘Inspired’, which means don’t take the trend too literally, leave your workout clothes inside the gym, shop for pieces that have a sporty touch, like the white sweater with mesh sleeves on Olivia Palermo (above left). 2. ‘Luxurious’. Designers have been taking sport pieces to another level with luxe materials like silk, crepe and cashmere. You can also upgrade yours by pairing them with glamorous counterparts like a sexy Christian Louboutin mesh pump or an eye-catching It bag.

In Chinese:  这一季运动风当道。要穿出潮感而不是像去健身房的路上,只要记住两个关键词:第一,运动元素。你要找的是包含运动元素但不是真正具有功能性的单品,比如在奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)这两个造型里看到的甜美的针织衫加入了运动风格的网状拼接。第二,奢华。这几季设计师们纷纷出招,运用奢华的面料,比如真丝绉绸喀什米尔给把平民化的运动单品注入了奢华感。如果不想投资这么贵的运动单品,你也可以通过搭配来提升奢华感,比如配上性感的高跟鞋炙手可热的品牌手包
