A Match Made in Heaven

The crop top and high waist midi skirt combo is a match made in heaven. When you think a zesty citrus skirt is already enough, hot mommy Jessica Alba thinks otherwise. She took it to another level with a pair of three dimensional sandals and bold graphic tote, which turned the look from sweet n’ pretty to goth chic.

In Chinese: 短上衣和高腰伞裙是完美的组合。如果你觉得拼接的条纹款加上亮橘色的长裙已经够抢眼了,看看辣妈杰西卡·奥尔芭(Jessica Alba)的这个让人眼前一亮的造型吧:她用富有趣味的几何图案拼接手包和黑色的立体雕花高跟鞋给一个极富女人味的组合注入了哥特式的酷感。

Master Your Stripes

Lines have a great impact on camouflaging or enhancing our body shape. The effect is most clearly highlighted by high-contrasting stripes. Take this striped dress on Taylor Swift for example: the variegated lines, combined with strategically placed black side panels, result a visually slimming look. 

Accessories, once again, played a big part in their outfits: a demure, sophisticated handbag and cool, retro oxford pumps balanced the sexiness of Taylor Swift’s mini body-con dress, while Olivia Palermo chose a structured colorblock satchel and lux calf-hair print slipper to elevate the casualness of her stripe tee.

In Chinese: 线条对整体着装的影响很大,对比强烈的条纹尤其能说明这一点。拿小天后泰勒·斯维芙特(Taylor Swift)的这条裙子来说吧:它的条纹从胸线以下变得密集起来,再加上侧边黑色的拼接,视觉上非常显瘦。

除了线条的作用,这两个造型再一次提醒了我们配饰的影响力:泰勒·斯维芙特(Taylor Swift)优雅的裸色方包学院风的牛津包鞋平衡了她包身迷你短裙的性感;奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)则用有趣又有正式感的撞色手包和波纹马毛鞋提升条纹T恤的休闲感。

Spice Up Black and White

Black/white graphic is by far my favorite trend. The classic and simple palette gives us a lot of room to play with textures, patterns and accessories. Here, Olivia Palermo made her monochromatic outfit anything but boring by mixing various stripes, juxtaposing with leopard, and bringing in modern fringes. When you resist the temptation of adding bright colors, it rewards you a much bigger stage to express yourself!

In Chinese: 重新回潮的黑白几何图案是我的最爱。简单经典的色彩组合赋予了我们更多的空间去体验不同材质、印花和配饰碰撞的别样感觉。今天的这个造型里,奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)通过运用不同走向和宽窄的条纹、以及条纹与豹纹流苏的混搭等把黑白变得生动有趣、潮感十足。克制住加入亮色的冲动,让黑白做主角,它会回赠予你一个更广阔的表达创意的舞台!
