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?

Jumpsuit: From Summer to Fall

Jumpsuit has been around for a while, from summer’s short overalls to fall’s long sleeved versions as you can see on today’s featured ladies. There are several reasons why we love a great jumpsuit:

First of all, it creates a long, lean silhouette that will make us look taller and slimmer, especially the versatile black one. Secondly, it’s as romantic and dramatic as a sexy-goddess maxi dress but much more practical and versatile. Thirdly, it has the perfect masculine/feminine balance which we all love today. Last but not least, it’s a no-brainer! You can just throw on and you are good to go.

In Chinese: 连身裤已经流行了好一阵了,从夏天就到处可见的清凉的短打连身裤到今年秋冬好多明星和名媛都偏爱的长袖装。存在必有其合理性,我最喜欢这种裤装的几点:首先,这种一件式的设计没有截断身形的担心,穿起来修身又显高;其次,它是性感和酷帅的完美结合。穿起来有和希腊女神式的长裙一样的视觉冲击,但是又没有那么挑场合挑季节。一年四季都可以穿,配合不同的鞋子和配饰也很容易打造适合不同场合的look。更重要的是你几乎不用费心考虑怎么穿搭,像裙子一样,只要套上去再加上一两个简单的配饰,比如一双性感的高跟鞋一个手包,甚至只搭一只简单的大手表,就很有型了。

Winter White: Colorblock Coat & Red Accent

Thanks to the strong black and white trend, not only the traditional winter white shades like eggshell and cream are totally acceptable, the bright whites we usually see in summer are also can, and should be embraced in winter now. A crisp white piece can instantly make a monochrome look modern, sharp and chic.

Here, Miranda Kerr chose the classic white, blue and red color theme, while Lily Collins demonstrated the black & white simplicity. The faux fur coat on Lily Collins is colorblocked, combined with a black jumpsuit, making the stodgy fur youthful and flattering.

I’m glad that the red trend is back this fall. You can team it with almost any color, the combination of red and white is especially fresh and uplifting.

In Chinese: 感谢这几季强劲的黑白风,现在秋冬穿白色的概念已经完全被大家所接受了,而且色调上也不再局限于传统的米白、象牙白,连春夏常见的亮白色、银白色也完全四季皆宜了。

在色彩的搭配上,Miranda Kerr所穿的蓝、白、红以及Lily Collins身上极简的黑与白等都是经典的组合。我尤其喜欢Lily Collins的这件黑白撞色的皮草外套,和黑色的连身裤搭配起来,降低了皮草的正式感又能拉长腿型。

另外,今年红色又回潮了!就像小黑裙一样,每一个人一定有属于自己的那一款红。这个经典的颜色无论和中性的黑白灰,撞色的蓝、绿还是相近的粉或桔搭配起来都很漂亮,和纯白色配起来更是格外醒目。
