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。

There is no need to say more about Taylor Swift’s international influence. Beside the tremendous impact she has on the music world, her personal style is also having a large influence on the fashion world. Taking her fans into consideration, Taylor always dresses modesty, in good taste and in very feminine colors. Her style is wearable, accessible and easy to recreate.

Today, I want to share with you three of my favorite winter looks of her to help you solve the conundrum: how to select a coat that will work with our outfit, whether it’s for a night out, a day time activity or a laid-back weekend.

Camel and red are a great color combination that works at any age. A tailored red dress paired with nude pumps is a great go-to look for parties, especially during holiday season. Camel coat is a timeless, ageless winter staple. Let the red dress peep out under the coat, so that the whole look is not top-heavy.

A cobalt blue coat is my first recommendation if you are just starting to try colored winter coats. This color is flattering, attractive yet easy-going. The easy and safe way to wear it is pairing with black pieces (like the designer Stella McCartney paired here) or with items in the same color family (like how Emma Stone paired hers here). But my favorite is what Taylor Swift did (above middle): playing colorblock by pairing it with a bright orange sweater.

The third look (above right) is my favorite of the three. I never have a coat in this green-blue color. It goes so well with rich brown! I tried a similar one from Target and immediately feel in love with this fresh shade. For a coat with feminine silhouette and romantic color, I like to toughen it up with distressed chunky ankle booties.

Which one is your favorite?

Chinese actress and singer Zhou Xun in Chanel

Zhou Xun is my favorite Chinese actress. Her movies Painted Skin and Perhaps Love are my all-time favorites. After fell in love with her movies, I started to notice her personal style.

She actually has become more and more stylish and looked so effortlessly pulled together when she started to date Li Daqi, a well-known stylist from Taiwan. Although they broke up three years ago, Zhou Xun’s style taste kept developing. Continue reading »
