Compared to the bold red clothing pieces we shared in my last entry, shoes are one of the easiest ways to incorporate this classic, eye-catching color without being overwhelmed:

You can make the red shoe as a centerpiece by teaming it with understated neutral items, like the crisp white shirt and grey pencil skirt in first look above; You can emphasize it by wearing another red piece, like the red jumper on Jessie J (above middle); Or you can play with colors by adding analogous colors (like Taylor Tomasi Hill’s purple floral blouse, above right), or adding complementary colors (like green). 

As always, details make a big difference: for the first outfit, the blue printed scarf and leopard sunglasses really spice up the look. I like to take one step further by adding this modern diamond colorblocked skirt by Ann Taylor. This look is great for any age.

For the second outfit, compared to a regular skinny jeans, a two-tone tuxedo version nails this season’s hottest trend while a school-girl vibe satchel adding ease to the look. Change the bag to a more sleek, structured version, I can see this outfit on women over 40.

The third outfit is all about colors, from the printed blouse to the colorblock pumps. Use neutral pieces to cool the loudness. Another ageless look that’s great to embrace the coming spring!

Close followers know that Miranda Kerr is one of my favorite style icons. I appreciate her attitude about fashion and trends: you hardly see her taking any trend head-to-toe. She always uses one statement piece and mixes it with classic wardrobe essentials.

Also, although she has the perfect body that allows her to try any trend, by knowing what best suits her body, she builds up the irreplaceable “Miranda Kerr style”: have you ever seen her in baggy and slouchy pants?

Today’s three looks are the perfect example of her signature style. By using one outfit maker (either the black and white checked blazer which is the hottest now, or bold leopard print top), and mixing it with timeless classic pieces that have been spotted on her many times (a pair of dark washed skinny jeans, simple black flat, a leather workhorse bag and basic tank top), she easily got camera-ready outfits that are edgy and glamorous, stylish yet classic.

Of course, details are key. For instance, girly, pull-down hair balances the sleek, menswear inspired look (above middle), whereas sleek bun tones down the sexy bold look (above left and right). Also, a classic red lip is always a quick and easy way to pull together an outfit.

Find your perfect outfit makers for this season! They will instantly make all of your basics current and spring-ready!

Leopard scarf never goes out of style. You can see them every fall/winter. But traditional leopard scarf is predictable and can easily put us in a dreaded situation: matching a stranger’s outfit. To avoid this and make yourself stand out from the crowd stylishly, consider adding colors to your leopard scarf. Yes, colors!

Colors can instantly give characters to the traditional leopard: olive-green is edgy and chic (like the one on Heidi Klum); red is more glamorous and sexy (like Miranda Kerr’s); purple is romantic with a little bit of mystery (like Ana Beatriz Barros’s look); high contrast black and white is modern graphic (like this stylish, affordable version). The list goes on…

From today’s three looks above, you can see how a colored leopard scarf really makes the whole outfit stand out: Heidi Klum’s military style leopard scarf adds texture and cool-girl vibe to her sleek neutral outfit while the color blends harmoniously with the rest; Miranda Kerr’s red leopard scarf brightens up the whole monochrome look while standing in vivid contrast against to her floral Prada bag; Ana Beatriz Barros’s purple leopard scarf along with her red coated jeans gives a carefree vibe to the whole look while still having an attractive girly flair.

Below are my favorite colored leopard scarves, which one do you like the most?
