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。

Compared to the bold red clothing pieces we shared in my last entry, shoes are one of the easiest ways to incorporate this classic, eye-catching color without being overwhelmed:

You can make the red shoe as a centerpiece by teaming it with understated neutral items, like the crisp white shirt and grey pencil skirt in first look above; You can emphasize it by wearing another red piece, like the red jumper on Jessie J (above middle); Or you can play with colors by adding analogous colors (like Taylor Tomasi Hill’s purple floral blouse, above right), or adding complementary colors (like green). 

As always, details make a big difference: for the first outfit, the blue printed scarf and leopard sunglasses really spice up the look. I like to take one step further by adding this modern diamond colorblocked skirt by Ann Taylor. This look is great for any age.

For the second outfit, compared to a regular skinny jeans, a two-tone tuxedo version nails this season’s hottest trend while a school-girl vibe satchel adding ease to the look. Change the bag to a more sleek, structured version, I can see this outfit on women over 40.

The third outfit is all about colors, from the printed blouse to the colorblock pumps. Use neutral pieces to cool the loudness. Another ageless look that’s great to embrace the coming spring!
