How to mix patterns? Olivia Palermo modeled three key strategies: First, keep the patterns in the same scale, like the yellow chain print blouse and black/white wave print skort she worn showed above left; Secondly, tie your patterns together with one or two common colors, as showed above right, Olivia Palermo pulled out the perfect-for-fall burgundy in both patterns, making them blend together harmoniously; Thirdly, tone down the loudness with neutrals, as seen in her first look above, it’s the understated vest, purse and pumps ground the boldness.

In Chinese: 混搭图案有技巧。怎么做到‘乱中有序’呢?和Olivia Palermo学学这三招吧:第一,混搭的两种图案大小相对一致才会有整体感,比如左边的造型中黄色的链条衬衫和黑白的波纹裙;第二,这两种图案最好有一或两个共同色,比如右边的look里,Olivia Palermo用酒红把两件同样抢眼的单品混搭得浑然一体;第三,用一些低调、安静的中性色平衡热闹的图案,比如她的第一个造型里棕灰色的长马甲和相近色的手包、鞋子降低了明度和彩度,使整身look更协调,也更有季节感。

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target is my favorite target collaboration so far. The pieces are classic & contemporary, yet with a bold, edgy or fun twist, perfectly meet a modern woman’s need. Today’s featured looks above are great example of how versatile Phillip Lim’s designs is.

Tuxedos are must have for a modern working woman, not only because they can take you from office to cocktail party (a quick change can be as simple as taking off the button-down shirt you wear for the office and button up the jacket to show a hint of cleavage), but also because the separates can be mixed with many other pieces in your closet, be it a fun, whimsical sweatshirt or a bold flirty animal print mini skirt, a futuristic clear stiletto or a studded clutch, let the unexpected juxtaposition show off your taste and unknown side.

3.1 Phillip Lim和Target合作的这个系列是我今年最喜欢的。一如Phillip Lim一贯的设计风格,这些单品经典中有现代感,又不乏有趣或大胆的色彩和细节,完美契合了现代女性工作、娱乐和社交的需求,价格更是亲民。我最喜欢的一点是,他所设计的单品可以随意混搭,从而最大化使用率。

这套藏蓝色的西服套装为例,整套搭配起来既可以穿去办公室又可以参加派对:只需要脱掉你穿去办公室的白衬衫,把西装外套当作上衣来穿,酷帅中带点性感的装扮能让你在一片俗套的抹胸裙中脱颖而出。

把外套和裤装分开来,搭配你衣橱中已有的单品,变化就更多了。无论是搭配一件趣味十足的涂鸦T恤、狂野的动物纹短裙还是未来感十足的透明塑胶金属配饰,发挥创意展现你的时尚品味和不为人知的另一面吧。

Close followers know that in my blog, I mainly focus on wearable outfit ideas from style savants, especially when their looks incorporate recycled pieces or wardrobe essentials, like the chambray shirt on Miranda Kerr featured above.

There are countless ways to style a denim shirt/jacket. Among them, the denim on denim look is the trickiest: If you pick the wrong shade (too dark or over blenched), the wrong accessories (say a crystal belt), the ensemble will look unfashionable and dated. Here, Miranda Kerr showed us how to play this resurgent trend in a modern way:

Pick two pieces in different hues, extra bonus for those with different “characters”: A simple, minimal embellished top paired with a deeply distressed skinny or right-on-trend patchwork denim shorts for example.

Use accessories to keep it current: compared to menswear loafers or studded boots, metallic ballet flats and suede/satin slippers are equally chic while adding a luxe and feminine touch.

Keep the rest sleek and clean: Instead of wavy hair, hoop earrings, stacked bracelets, try a modern updo, dainty everyday jewelry and structured handbag in a sophisticated hue, like this understated suede grey tote or this modern black satchel.
