It’s so refreshing to see Vanessa Hudgens in such a sophisticated, urban chic outfit, instead of the bohemian, Coachella style that she is known for. It’s a perfect example of how to keep warm while bringing spring spirit into your mix now.

In Chinese: 提起凡妮莎-哈金斯,我一定会想到波西米亚风格的流苏、牛仔短裤、印花裙等,所以当看到这个不一样的、都市率性风的凡妮莎-哈金斯时,忍不住一定要和大家分享。在这个乍暖还寒的时节,保暖的同时又想有春天的轻巧,参考这个搭配吧!

There are a millions ways to accessorize a black maxi dress, I especially appreciate the subdued beauty of pairing black with other neutrals, like showed above: Vanessa Hudgens highlighted her sexy yet demure maxi with all black accessories while Jamie Chung opted for a sophisticated black/nude palette.

A black maxi dress is no doubt a wardrobe essential that can be worn year-round (remember these outfits of Miranda Kerr?). If you already have the basic version, invest in one with eye-catching details like asymmetrical hem, sexy cut out, daring open back, or double slits.

In Chinese: 一条简单的黑色长裙可以有数不清的穿搭方法。可能很多人倾向于加些颜色或印花图案作为亮点,我却偏爱把小黑裙本身作为重点,用其它中性色或黑色本身去装饰,那种优雅、带着点克制哲学的低调美别有韵味,比如今天看到的这两个造型。

黑色长裙是一年四季都可以穿的衣橱必备 (还记得米兰达·可儿的这四个搭配吗?),如果你已经有了基本款,投资一条有流行元素的,比如前短后长的不对称剪裁性感的小镂空双开叉等等。

Midriff baring is not only trendy now, also quite practical for combating the heat. Wearing crop pieces for night-time is easy: a bustier with high-waisted pencil skirt or a bandeau and hot shorts with a boyfriend blazer. But styling it daytime appropriate can be quite challenging. Today, I featured two daytime chic outfits to give your some inspiration.

Compared to plain jersey version, the ones on today’s featured style-conscious starlets are more elegant and feminine thanks to the beautiful embroidered details and high neckline. Exposing just the right amount of skin by pairing them with high-waisted pants or skirts. Strappy sandals echo the polished glamour while the eye-catching It bags on them add a touch of urban chic.
