After seeing so many kaleidoscope prints, ornate embellishments, saturated bold colors, it’s so fresh to spot clean, sleek black and white ensemble. And from the intense fashion events last month, we know that we will play around this classic palette in the coming season too.

High contrast black and white combination is my all-time favorite. It’s more sophisticated than colorful patterns, but has the same attractive, eye-catching effect.

For me, dressing is all about balancing: balance proportions by wearing long loose top over fitted skinny bottom; balance styles by pairing ladylike floral dress with tough leather jacket; balance color palette by mixing neutrals with bold printed pieces. 


Seven Lessons on How to Wear White Blazer (Part 2 of White Blazer Series)

Summer is around the corner, I really want to take the time and dedicate myself to a series posts about timeless white essentials. My first pick is white blazers. In my previous post, I shared with you five stylish ways of pairing white blazer with black pieces. By adding different accessories or trying the different materials or cuts of the blazer, we can achieve totally different styles.

Today, in our part 2 of white blazer series, I want to share with you how to rock white blazers with colorful or interest and fun pieces: from stripes and prints, from solid colors to romantic floral, from shorts to skirt, from leather to denim…There are so many lessons we need to learn.

Lesson 1 is from Miranda Kerr and Michelle Williams. Both of them were using the same style “formula”(I hate to use the word “formula” or “rule” when it comes to fashion, my only rule is looking good,having fun. But let’s just use this word to express the similar fashion ideas or the easy ways to pair certain garments): stripes+bold solid color+white blazer=eye catching fresh look. The white blazer can turn down the intense contrasts, also add a crisp touch to the outfit.
