What You Need This Summer

A printed over-the-knee skirt and a maxi dress really are the only two pieces you need this summer— one for the office, the other for off-duty. For the over-the-knee skirt, you can choose either a pencil-shape or a full skirt version like the one on Jessica Alba (above left). I prefer the latter: It covers offending areas and flatters almost any body shape. Pick a colorful floral version, and pair it with any solid top lying in your closet.  The styling part is even easier for a printed maxi dress: You don’t need any jewelry since the print is already very eye-catching. You even don’t need to think about shoes because they hide underneath most of the time. Grab your favorite sunglasses (my favorite here!), and you are good to go!

In Chinese: 其实今年夏天,只要投资两条漂亮的印花裙就可以轻松度过了:一条过膝的半身裙上班或约会时穿,一条拖地长裙晚上或周末穿。关于前者,一般有两种廓形:包身的铅笔裙或大伞裙。前者很挑身材。后者因为盖住了很多问题部位,适合各种身材的美眉。关于颜色,选择多彩的印花吧,这样就能和你衣橱里任何一件单色的T恤或坦克背心搭配了。至于后者–印花的拖地长裙,配起来就更简单了。因为图案本身就很吸引人,所以不用考虑配件。鞋子也大部分时候都藏在裙子下,也不用考虑。只要带上酷酷的太阳镜,就可以出门了!

Denim on Denim

Don’t know how to wear the denim on denim trend, let alone rock it for a night-out? Olivia Palermo told us how: a two-tone tux blazer breaks the two-piece look while adding some formalness. Glitter add-ons are night-out essentials. Apply the rule through accessories like her killer heels and that barely-leaves-her cut-out bangle.

In Chinese: 这几季流行的牛仔加牛仔的造型本来就很难驾驭,更不用说打造出适合参加晚上派对或稍微正式些活动的装扮了。从奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)的这个造型里学几招吧:一件黑白配色的西装外套打破了整身单宁色的同时加入了正式感。派对当然少不了闪亮的饰品,她的金色高跟鞋和几乎不离身的金色宽手链为造型增加了恰到好处的奢华点缀。

Tips for adhering to a dress code and still be absolutely fashion forward? Playing with accessories! As showed above, it’s that splash of bright elevated these outfits. The small clutch and enviable colorblock pumps on Mandy Moore can help you transform from desk to dinner with ease while the roomy orange/red bag looks as good with a T shirt and slouchy jeans for weekends as it is with a blazer and pencil skirt for the office.

In Chinese: 既要遵守办公室的着装要求,又想展现好品味或者给无聊的制服增加些趣味?那就多花些心思在配件上吧!拼色的、有设计感或有趣的小配饰对整体造型的提升会超出你的想象。比如上面这两个造型,去掉这几个红色、橘色的装点就很平乏了。曼迪·摩尔(Mandy Moore)的这个小手包和让人过目不忘的别致包鞋可以让你从办公室到晚上的约会转换得轻松自如。辣妈杰西卡·奥尔芭(Jessica Alba)的这个好看又实用的双色手包在周末时搭配T恤牛仔裤也一样出彩!
