Modernize Your Floral Skirt

How to wear floral, leather jacket outfit,   Poppy Delevingne at Mrs Alice in her Palace launch, London - March 27 2014 wearing:  J Brand leather jacket, floral midi skirt, Bella Freud jumper, denim shirt, Saint Laurent chain trim ankle boots,  Photos: Poppy Delevingne; Courtesy of pressassociation.com.

Why I love it: a floral midi skirt gets modernized when teamed with leather jacket, denim shirt and chain trimmed pointed toe booties.

Style Tips:
Pair a midi skirt with cropped tops, like the jacket seen above. Wear it where the jacket ends.
For petite fellows, tie the denim shirt around your waist for a more flattering look.
Change the jacket to a tailored blazer, wear the outfit to the office!

In Chinese: 长及膝下的大伞裙是这一季的流行,但是穿不好容易显老显俗,尤其是这种大花图案的。波比·迪瓦伊(Poppy Delevigne)用短小的皮夹克,富有年轻感的牛仔衬衫、字母T恤和链条短靴穿出了潮感和新意。

选择这种大伞裙时最好选择高腰款,搭配上这一季大热的短款毛衣、外套或小衫,打造好比例。娇小的女孩可以把衬衫系在腰间。配上短款的西装外套和尖头包鞋,这种裙长其实非常适合办公室。

Run out of ideas for styling your black pieces? Miranda Kerr & Olivia Palermo wowed us again by spicing up their basic black pieces with hottest trends & to-die-for accessories. Here is how:

Add one trendy, eye-catching print to break up a dark ensemble. The tartan jacket on Miranda Kerr echoes the punk trend but in a more sophisticated way while the marble printed top on Olivia Palermo introducing the next hottest pattern spotted on the latest runway.

Use accessories to update basic black pieces while giving them different characters: The Isabel Marant booties and classic quilted leather tote add an edgy yet sexy vibe to Miranda Kerr’s outfit; A camouflage tassel pump and studded white bag add unexpected juxtaposition to Olivia Palermo’s city chic look.

Play with textures: mix elegant tweed with tough leather, juxtapose delicate silk against chunky knit or heavy metal. Be creative and have fun!

黑色的单品我们每年秋冬都会穿,这一季怎么穿出新鲜、时尚感又不失我们自己的风格?Miranda Kerr 和Olivia Palermo最近在巴黎时装周期间的这两个糅合了最新潮流趋势的造型能给我们一些灵感:

在基本的黑色look中引入一两个最新的图案打破黑色的沉闷感。Miranda Kerr身上的呢格纹是经典的庞克元素,这一季设计师赋予了庞克风精良的都市感。Olivia Palermo所穿的大理石图案也将是下一季的热捧。

用配饰给经典款的黑色单品加入更多当季的元素,也能方便快速地变换风格。Miranda Kerr所穿的目前最受追捧的来自Isabel Marant的尖头拼接踝靴和香奈儿包呼应了皮裤和丝袜搭配的酷帅和性感;Olivia Palermo的迷彩流苏高跟鞋和铆钉包也使原本优雅的look更具时尚和个性。

混搭不同的材质也能让整身暗色调的搭配更富层次感,比如用优雅的粗呢外套去搭配酷帅的皮裤或二手的破洞牛仔装,用精致的丝缎或蕾丝搭配宽松的针织衫或铆钉装饰的庞克风配件等。

Small details make a huge difference, especially in fashion world. More often, it’s the little things, accessories or splashes of color, liven up an outfit while tie everything together, as showed above: A spike bracelet edges up a ladylike dress; A mustard heel adds fun to black/white polka dots; A red stiletto pops against a neutral palette; A layered pearl necklace balances the youthful stripes; A peplum hem updates a classic pencil skirt, let alone that bold, delectable hot pink hue!

In Chinese: 细节决定成败,这句老话更应验在我们的日常着装中,很多时候正是一些小配饰或者点缀其间的那一抹亮色让我们的搭配脱颖而出,就像今天的这组给了我很多搭配灵感的图集中所展示的一样:庞克风格的配饰冲淡了裙装的甜腻,彩色的跟鞋给波普图案增添了更多趣味和活力,亮红的绑带高跟鞋让中性色的套装不再单调,富于层次感的珍珠项链平衡了条纹的休闲感,更不用说最近大热的这条亮粉色的花苞裙了!
