One Coat, Two Ways

Sand is one of the top colors for women’s fashion this spring. It reminds me of the breezy beaches. It’s thoughtful, sophisticated, yet very flattering and easy-going. Here, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley layered it with black, brown and metallic accent for the perfect neutral balance. This color also goes well with hemlock (a soft green hue) or another trendy color paloma pink.

In Chinese: 罗西·汉丁顿-惠特莉(Rosie Huntington-Whiteley)的这件长风衣的颜色这一季非常流行,像夏日傍晚沙滩的颜色,非常静谧、优雅。带点暖色的基调也很衬我们东方人的肤色。搭配起来也容易,可以像汉丁顿-惠特莉一样与其它的中性色如黑色、棕色、白色等相搭,并用一些金属色,比如同样优雅的玫瑰金或未来感的银色做提亮。也可以搭配上湖水绿、烟粉等淡淡的颜色和它本身的优雅感相呼应。

Close followers know my love of stripes: There are countless outfit inspirations about stripes in my posts, and I personally collect striped pieces in various colors, scales, materials, cuts and shapes.

Although been popularized by Coco Chanel, stripes have a resort-related, laid-back vibe naturally. To polish them up, choose black/white or navy/white version in structured blazer or lady like dress silhouette, like the sophisticated A-line and sleek sheath versions on today’s featured stars above.

When it comes to styling: bright colors are their best friends. A splash of saturated primary color like sunny yellow, classic red or cobalt blue really makes the stripes pop.

Another fun way to play with it is mixing prints: teaming stripes with polka dots, animal prints or floral patterns. The key is keeping them in a similar scale or stick to the same color palette.

In Chinese: 不少常联系的读者朋友都知道我喜欢条纹,不仅我的博文里收录了很多和条纹有关的搭配,而且我的衣橱里挂满了各种颜色、质地、面料和剪裁的条纹单品。

看到条纹,大家往往会联想到运动,度假等休闲娱乐活动。要想把它穿得正式优雅,选择黑白深蓝与白的经典搭配,修身的条纹小西服或典雅的条纹裙装也能让这个活泼的图案添几分正式感。

在搭配上,高饱和色是黑白条纹最好的朋友,如宝蓝明黄亮红等。今年流行的荧光色也能让条纹变得更抢眼活泼。此外,还可以把条纹和其它的经典图案混搭起来,比如波普圆点、动物纹或花朵图案。混搭的一个小贴士:保持图案的大小相对一致,或在同一个色系里。
