Tuxedo style in dress silhouette, tailored pants worn with a plunging top… there is something so chic and sexy about combining menswear elements with feminine pieces, killer shoes and eye-catching accessories. And when all in white, the result is even more striking and luxury.

In Chinese: 西装的廓形加上迷你裙的剪裁直筒西裤配上抹胸束腰上衣…硬朗的男性化的元素和极富女人味的单品的组合总是令人眼前一亮,尤其当整身都是白色时,更显得典雅高贵。配饰的选择上也可以和这两种对比鲜明的风格进行呼应,比如性感的高跟鞋和庞克风的铆钉手包华丽的水钻耳环未来感的金属包的配搭等等。

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.

In our fourth part of “Back to Basics” series, I want to talk about the timeless white pants, two common types in particular: wide leg pants and skinny jeans. As you can see from above, balance is the key: wide leg bottom calls for cropped or slim fit top, whereas body hugging skinny jeans look better with relaxed fit or boxy cut top.

Since wide leg pants, especially white ones, will make us look shorter, choose high-waisted version, tuck in your top, slip on a pair of platforms to maximize our visual leg length. White skinny ankle jeans or leggings are more flattering, but I would suggest to size up, nothing is worse than too-tight white pants. The cropped length is also great to show off your statement heels.

Like other timeless white pieces we shared before, white pants are so versatile and easy going. This season, I especially like these two pairings showed above:

Gwyneth Paltrow chose the hottest black/white trend. Since the palette is simple, she focused on details, from her slit neck top to outstanding heels (check out the back of her shoes!) Gwyneth Paltrow is known for her minimalist style. But you can always add splashes of color to make your own spin. This look is great for women of any age.

Hilary Rhoda’s flowy pants and lightweight sleeveless top is a great summer combo. I fell in love with this water-ski silk tank from J.Crew. Earth tone accessories tone down the brightness perfectly. This is also an ageless outfit. You can opt for this cap-sleeve top if you are not comfort with your arms: the bright hue and luxe material make it equal parts stylish and comfy.
