With summer’s end in sight, any opportunities to wear flowy dresses or mini skirts are precious. To dress for the chilly days while still looking cheerful and summery, choose printed long sleeve blouses or dresses in lightweight fabric or with eye-catching prints. The covered arms balance bare legs while still capturing a late summer breeze.

For accessories, closed toe shoes like ballet flats, suede loafers or the newly minted spectator shoes are chic yet functional options. Tote or satchel in grey, brown or burgundy is also a great way to add right amount of weight and coziness in late summer/early fall.

每到夏末,总想起谢雨欣的那句伤感的浅唱–“穿裙子的季节要过去,要被无奈的秋风吹进尘封的往事里”。其实,留心一些小细节,这个时候仍然可以穿着轻盈飘逸的短裙游走大街小巷。比如选择长袖的轻透材质的衬衫长袖的印花连身裙,可以抵御渐凉的气温又保有夏天的轻盈。

凉鞋可以收起来了,包头的芭蕾平底鞋,复古的丝绒包鞋或新近大热的双色拼接牛津鞋都是即舒适,时尚又保暖的选择。灰色、棕色酒红色的大包也能给轻盈的装扮引入些初秋的温暖气息。

What to Wear on a beach vacation; how to wear print dress or skirt, how to wear white, beach outfit ideas 2013; spring/summer, street style;   On Olivia Palermo: white shirt, white mini skirt, gold bracelet, Westward Leaning sunglasses, blue floral print dress, pink ballet flat, straw tote;Photos: Olivia Palermo; Courtesy of starstyle.comoliviasstyle.blogspot.co.uk.

A look back at all the eight simple yet stylish vacation outfits from Olivia Palermo reminds me again how powerful statement accessories can be:

bright or animal print ballet flat adds fun and textures to our looks while being so easy to walk in; A delicate satin heel or eye-catching jewelry piece elevates a simple white dress or shirt; A straw tote or exotic tassel necklace makes an urban look laid-back and beach-ready. Best of all? They don’t take up much precious luggage space.

In Chinese: 我们度假系列中这八个简单又让人耳目一新的着装再次提醒了我们配饰的重要性:一双亮色斑马纹的芭蕾平底鞋既舒适又能增加整体的色彩和趣味;一双精致的高跟鞋或一件抢眼的配饰能让即使最普通的白裙或T恤脱颖而出;一个充满田园气息的编织包或带有异域风情的流苏项链则能瞬间把都市感很强的单品变得休闲起来。最重要的是,它们不会多占用我们行李箱里的宝贵空间。

Like a crisp white button down, chambray shirt is definitely a wardrobe essential that is timeless, ageless and seasonless. Today, I picked two summer looks incorporated this iconic piece, hope they can give you more ideas to style yours.

Refined glamour with a touch of urban chic is Olivia Palermo’s signature. Here, she offsets a girly flirty white pleated skirt with a light washed chambray. Leopard print flats add details and fun to the look while maintaining the laid-back chic vibe.

Alessandra Ambrosio is known for her classic American casual off-duty looks with an urban bohemian touch. Here, a loose fitted shirt, shorts and strappy sandal combo might be too tomboyish, but she balanced out with details: colored striped hot shorts show off her sexy legs, stacked arm candy and flowy hair add girly elements.

Which is your favorite: Olivia Palermo’s refined girly look or Alessandra Ambrosio’s laid back casual look?
