Weekend Chic

Olivia Palermo street style 2014; the fringe trend;

Understated chicness is best exemplified with a simple black and white look with rich details. Take this one from Olivia Palermo for example: Silk blouse is layered under a cropped tweed jacket; Exotic embroidery highlights her laid-back black slip-ons; Fringed bag pays tribute to the new western trend. This look is perfect for brunch, shopping or rolling around town.

In Chinese: 低调的黑白搭配,饰以考究的细节在我看来是优雅都市风的最佳诠释,比如纽约街拍女王奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)的这个造型,看似简单的中性色的搭配,因为不同材质(像丝质衬衫、粗呢外套、麂皮乐福鞋等)以及细节(从复古感的刺绣包鞋到当下最热的西部风情的流苏手包),让造型充满层次感、创意和看点。这个造型非常适合周末, 吃早午餐、和朋友聚会或逛街等。

Winter White: Party Glamour or Street Chic

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。

Summer To Fall Transition

Pre-fall is my favorite time of the year: I can still wear the light and airy summer pieces whiling enjoy the fun of layering. Today’s featured looks are perfect examples of dressing for transitional seasons.

The white top, black shorts and mini skirt on Olivia Palermo & Poppy Delevingne are spring/summer staples we all have in our closet. Top them off with a tweed or leather jacket to keep us warm on chilly days while bringing in details and rich textures to a monochrome look. Black accessories with gold accents are also great way to introduce new season without adding bulk, like the black bag, cute bow pump, and edgy studded loafers on them.

Low heels and menswear inspired footwear are huge trends. Since they are not as leg-lengthening as stilettos, we need to pay extra attention to clothes: high waisted bottoms or crop top/jacket is a good way to go, especially for petite girls like me.

一年中我最喜欢夏末秋初,既能穿轻透飘逸的夏装又能享受层叠穿搭带来的乐趣。今天的两个造型就很好地展示了如何在过渡季节穿得保暖又时尚。

在Olivia Palermo和Poppy Delevingne身上所看到的白色上衣,黑色短裤和迷你裙都是春夏的必备单品,外搭小香风的粗呢外套庞克风格的机车皮衣,既能御寒又给持续流行到今年秋冬的黑白搭配加入了更丰富的细节。此外,深色及金色的配饰也是既能引入秋冬元素又不会看起来厚重的选择。

关于鞋款,粗低跟男孩风是本季的流行,由于它们不像经典的高跟鞋那么拉长腿部线条,我们就要特别注意衣服的选择,尤其是个子娇小的女孩,短款修身的外套和高腰的裤装是搭配这些鞋款的好朋友。
