Earlier this summer, before I got my hands on, the suede scallop top Kate Bosworth designed for Topshop was sold out everywhere. So this time, when the all-round style icon collaborated with Topshop again, I marked my calendar and got this white leather sweater as you can see on both of her looks above. I love how she chose white leather to add a fresh and edgy twist on the right-on-trend sweatshirt.

Compared to the last festival-themed collection, The Collection Starring Kate Bosworth truly reflects the star’s personal aesthetic: well-balanced modern simplicity and the perfect mixing of feminine and masculine.

The above two looks showed us how she mixes high street with high fashion, balances trends with basics, offsets eye-catching statements with quiet neutrals, and restyles the same piece for different occasions.

In Chinese: 今年夏天,我最后悔错过的一个单品是Kate Bosworth为Topshop设计的音乐节系列中的一件麂皮镂空上衣,在我决定下单子的时候,所有的店面已经全部卖光了。所以当我听说她会再次为Topshop推出一个秋冬系列时,就锁定了其中的一件白色的皮质运动上衣 (就是你在她的这两个造型里看到的这一件),这次再也不会错过了。

其实相比上次她特意为音乐节设计的单品,我更喜欢这次的这个系列,和她简约帅性又不失女人味的个人风格很接近,每一件都是值得收藏,不会过时的经典,线条和颜色很简单,又很有态度。

她上面的这两个look里就包含了好几件她这次设计的作品,看似简单的造型混搭了设计师的单品和人人都买得起的高街品牌,用简单低调的色彩平衡了图纹、金属等抢眼的元素,通过变换配饰让一件相同的单品适合不同的场合。

Hi everyone! It’s been such a long time since my last post. I’m going through a big change now and would like to share with this good news with you all: I’m going to be a mom soon! During the past two months, I have been tormented by the discomfort of pregnancy. Now I finally stepped into the so-called golden stage, although morning sickness is still around. And I will surely include more maternity style tips in the future, for those of you who are also expecting a new family member!

I’m glad I come back just in time: it’s the middle of fashion month, countless of runway looks and street styles are dazzling. With spring coming soon, there’s just too many to share! Today, let’s start with one of my favorite Chinese model Bonnie Chen (last time featured her here).

Black and white is a huge trend for this spring and will continue go into fall/winter as we saw from the latest runway shows. In her outfit, we can see trendy elements (like the high contrast palette and statement cross-body bag); fashion-forward elements that will coming next season (like her beanie and exaggerated hairstyle); and classic elements that never go out of style (leather pants, biker boots and crisp white button-down). All of these blend harmoniously. Compared to those showgoers with bare legs and sky high heels walking on snow, her look is not only stylish, but warm, comfy and easy.

Hat: Asos (or this one)

The beanies on Fall 2013 runways also remind me of this look of her (below). It was back in 2010, but Bonnie Chen’s red hat and her skilled layers keep this look stay in my notebook till now.

If you haven’t own a beanie yet, score one now, it will surely keep you in style!

What attracts me the most to Jessica Chastain are her bright smile and her colorful outfits. She has tried almost all of the vivid colors: yellow, pink, blue, green… And looks so beautiful and confident in them.

Today I picked the two looks of her above, not only because they are my favorite palettes (black and white with splashes of bright colors), but  Continue reading »
