Can’t find the perfect party dress? How about wearing pants instead! I’m a self-proclaimed Jenna Lyons style fanista. These two looks of her made me want to try pants for the coming holiday parties. The way she mixes lux satin, silk or fur with laid-back denim, jersey or cotton, and the way she combines colors are always so unexpected and inspiring.

Besides her chic, borrowed-from-the-boys style, another signature of her is definitely the nerd eyeglasses, which are the epitome of her well-balanced style. My favorite place to get eyeglasses is Warby Parker. The options they have are affordable and greatly crafted. Moreover, for every pair sold, they will distribute a pair to someone in need. So I know I shop for a good cause.

I’m currently obsessed with their new collection collaborated with beloved fashion stylist Leith Clark. You can find smart-looking frames in enchanting cobalt, crystal clear, retro round, flirty cat-eye…and more. Wow, eyeglasses can be so chic and fashionable!

In Chinese: 面对年末纷繁的派对,穿什么总是难题,如果找不到合适的小礼裙,有没有想过裤装也会是不错的选择?J.Crew的创意总监Jenna Lyons是我的时尚偶像,她混搭和配色的功力总是让我惊讶,也给了我很多日常着装的启发和灵感。

除了她那独特的带有男孩风的优雅装扮外,她那副大的黑框眼镜也歪打正着,现在成了她独特的时尚标志之一。这几年平光镜的潮流也让不近视的我加入了“眼镜大军”。在美国我个人最喜欢买眼镜的地方是一个叫Warby Parker的网站,那里的眼镜不但价格很公道,做工也极好。而且每卖出去一副眼镜,他们会捐献一副给需要的人。对我这种购物狂来说,多少减轻了血拼的愧疚感:)现在他们和好莱坞的造型师Leith Clark合作推出了一个新的系列,把眼镜做得更时尚了,有抢眼的宝蓝色、未来感的透明色、流行的猫眼以及复古的圆形镜框等各种各样的选择。

how to wear white in winter, What to wear with a tweed   jacket, Street style, party outfit, fall/winter,   Blake Lively, Miranda Kerr, white jacket, tweed jacket,   white skirt, ankle booties, loafer, distressed jeans,   Valentino 'Grande Lock', turtleneck sweater,  On Blake Lively for Lucky magazine 2013: Giuseppe Zanotti   Fall 2013 Zip Ankle Boots,Flap bag by Giuseppe Zanotti,   white Split Skirt, white biker jacket, 	black turtleneck   sweater, mirrored aviator sunglasses,   On Miranda Kerr: Chanel cream tweed jacket, Stella   McCartney oversized cat eye sunglasses, white distressed   jeans, Valentino Grande Lock Bag,Prada leopard tassel   loafer, Anita Ko ring,  Longines La Grande watch,Photos: Blake Lively & Miranda Kerr;  Courtesy of luckymag.comsplashnews.com.

Wearing white in fall/winter is modern and fashionable, but can be quite challenging. The key is to balance it with dark, rich shades and prints, combining with warm and luxe textures,  like the black & leopard accents, and a mix of jacquard, tweed, leather and haircalf spotted on today’s featured ladies.

I also love how these two icons took their looks to the next level: Blake Lively gave her crisp monochrome ensemble a futuristic vibe with a silver bag and mirrored sunglasses while Miranda Kerr offset her ladylike tweed jacket with a pair of heavy distressed jeans and comfy loafers.

In Chinese: 这几季的潮流打破了色彩的季节感,春夏穿黑灰,秋冬穿粉或白已经不是什么新鲜事了,但是寒冷的季节穿这么浅的颜色还是很具挑战性的。搭配的关键在于用深暗色调、和秋冬常见的动物纹以及温暖的材质来增加季节感,像Blake Lively 和 Miranda Kerr今天的这两个造型里看到的黑色和豹纹的单品,以及提花、粗呢、皮革和马毛等颇具温暖感的材质。

此外,个性的配饰或者有强烈对比的组合也能提升整个造型的新意和潮流感,比如Blake Lively用银色的手拿包和同色的眩光太阳镜给经典的黑白造型以未来感;Miranda Kerr则用一条破洞牛仔裤平底鞋把典雅的花呢夹克穿出了带有些许庞克风的随意街头感。

how to style black sweater, how to wear menswear shoes oxford, how to wear leather pants,   street style, fall/winter,  Olivia Palemro, Charlize Theron, black turtleneck sweater, printed pants, oxford, menswear, leather pants, beige tote, cat eye sunglasses,   On Olivia Palermo: Le Specs black cat eye sunglasses, black turtleneck sweater, black blouse, stripe printed pants, black menswear oxford, ring,   On Charlize Theron: black Turtleneck Boyfriend Sweater by Monika Chiang, beige leather top handle tote bag, leather pants, lace up menswear oxford, cat eye sunglasses, Photos: Olivia Palermo & Charlize Theron;  Courtesy of splashnews.comakmgsi.com.

I always appreciate about being a woman: we have way more options when it comes to clothing and accessories. But somehow, it’s those pieces we borrowed from men become permanent residents in our forever changing wardrobe, like the turtleneck sweater and lace-up Oxford spotted on today’s featured ladies.

When rocking the tomboy style pieces, the key is balancing them with feminine touches, like the satin blouse, red nails of Olivia Palermo, or the ladylike bag of Charlize Theron. Rolling up sleeves or cuffs to show the slimmest part of your body is also a great way to add that subtle sexy touch.

In Chinese: 每当我老公抱怨商场里卖的女装总比男装多得多时,我总是很庆幸自己身为女人有这么多选择。但奇怪的是,衣橱里我最喜欢、每次清理都舍不得扔的却是那些从老公衣橱里“借”来的单品,比如机车皮衣、军装夹克,还有从上面的两个时尚偶像身上看到的高领毛衣和系带牛津鞋等。

搭配这些男孩风单品的关键在于用女人味去平衡,比如Olivia Palermo所穿的精致的丝缎衬衫,紧腿裤,或者Charlize Theron所拿的优雅的裸色手包等。另外,随意地卷起袖口或挽起裤腿,露出纤细的手腕脚踝也能增加帅气的性感。小细节也不容忽视,比如红色的甲油或唇彩,或一枚别致的戒指、手环等。
