One Step Into Fall

Beautiful Autumn season is on the horizon, a great way to stay one step ahead while enduring the last heat wave of summer is through accessories: Ankle boots are great to toughen up your breezy summer dresses and shorts while keeping your look grounded. And nothing says fall more than a beautiful bordeaux colored handbag. As the temperature drops, you can add jacket, coat, and tights accordingly, rocking this look through fall.

In Chinese: 夏末秋初,怎么在最后的热浪里加入一点秋天的感觉?向越来越受时尚圈欢迎的乐坛天后泰勒·斯维芙特(Taylor Swift)学一招最简单的做法吧–从配饰着手!棕色的踝靴既有金秋的意味,又能给飘逸的花裙或短裤加入冲突的平衡美。最后用酒红色的手包来呼应鞋子的分量感。随着天气转凉,你还可以在这套造型的基础上加上夹克、大衣、打底裤等,把它从夏末一直穿到深秋。

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。

Wear Crop Tops At Any Age

How to wear crop tops at any ages; Fashion trend: Matching pieces

Crop tops are everywhere now. Last time I shared two casual, relaxed outfits incorporated this trend, today I picked two feminine and girly looks: one is from 38-year-old sweet mommy Reese Witherspoon, another is from 24-year-old Taylor Swift. Reese Witherspoon kept hers tasteful and age-appropriate with the seamless transition and peek-a-boo effect, while young starlet Taylor Swift fully embraced the trend with a much shorter top, fun accessories and carefree confidence!

In Chinese:  人人都在穿短款上衣了!上次我分享了两个很休闲随性的造型,今天我选了两个完全相反,非常女人味的搭配,而且她们代表了不同年龄段的人:38岁的甜美妈咪瑞茜·威瑟斯彭(Reese Witherspoon)和24岁的乐坛小天后泰勒·史薇芙特(Taylor Swift) 。瑞茜·威瑟斯彭选择了稍长的款式,搭配上高腰的裙子,只巧妙地通过镂空设计对这个露脐潮流做出符合自己年纪和风格的诠释。身材热辣的泰勒·史薇芙特则大胆地露出蛮腰和长腿,糖果色的配件更增加了甜美和年轻感。
