Leopard print is no doubt classic. I especially love the slightly brighter version on today’s featured ladies for its seasonless apparel. These two looks showed us perfectly how to style the same piece now and later when the temperatures rise.

I also love how they tamed this sexy wild print with preppy cable knits, laid-back denimfeminine ruffles and pleats and edgy ankle boots, respectively.

In Chinese: 豹纹是毋庸置疑的经典,但相比传统的豹纹,我更喜欢上面这两位荧屏明星所穿的亮色豹纹,更有现代感,不会到处撞衫,而且四季皆宜。这两个造型更启发了我们怎么“一衣多穿”,在春天即将到的时候多学些这样换季搭配的小技巧吧。

另外,我们总觉得豹纹太狂野,习惯用黑色去压,学学她们吧: 学院风毛衣休闲的牛仔小女人味的褶边以及硬朗的踝靴等都是平衡豹纹的好方法。

Thigh High Boots: Two Ways

I have a love/hate relationship with thigh high boots. I love their sexy and tough vibe and the fact that they provide extra warmth and additional coverage for our legs. But being a petite (I’m only 5’1 ft), I didn’t think I could pull them off. After a few weeks of trying, now I don’t want to take mine off! I even use my Mary Jane pump and thigh-high socks to create the similar look when it’s too hot to wear boots.

Here are my four main considerations for hunting and styling thigh high boots: Buy suede ones instead of leather, since suede has a matte finish which can slim our legs; The perfect pair should fit like a glove, not too tight, not too loose, especially around the ankle area; When wearing them with skirts or shorts, make sure there are a few inches between the hemline and the top of your boots; Finally, balance the sexiness of a thigh high boot with some masculine touches, like the menswear-inspired coat and newsboy cap showed on the models above.

In Chinese:大腿靴性感又保暖,但我却既爱又恨,因为我个子比较小,总觉得这种靴型会切断腿形。但进入秋季后尝试着穿搭了几周,发现只要在选购和搭配时注意一些小细节和小技巧,娇小的女孩也可以穿,不但不会破坏线条,还会拉长腿型。

首先在选择时,我发现麂皮更能修饰腿型,因为相比有光泽的牛皮,麂皮吸光的特性使腿部看起来更收缩;其次在试穿时,不能太松或太紧,尤其不能盖住脚踝本身的线条;最后,在搭配时,尤其是配裙子或短裤时,要露出一些皮肤,裙子或短裤的边不能盖住靴子的上缘,因为视线会停留在靴筒的高度,视觉上靴筒盖住的地方好像都是小腿的长度,无形中就大大拉长了腿型。另外搭配时可以用这一季最流行的男孩风的单品去中和大腿靴太过女人味的感觉,比如在超模Rosie Huntington-Whiteley和Miranda Kerr身上看到的男士大衣和报童帽等。天气不太冷时,也可以用高跟鞋大腿袜打造一个类似大腿靴的性感又可爱的造型!

Winter White: Colorblock Coat & Red Accent

Thanks to the strong black and white trend, not only the traditional winter white shades like eggshell and cream are totally acceptable, the bright whites we usually see in summer are also can, and should be embraced in winter now. A crisp white piece can instantly make a monochrome look modern, sharp and chic.

Here, Miranda Kerr chose the classic white, blue and red color theme, while Lily Collins demonstrated the black & white simplicity. The faux fur coat on Lily Collins is colorblocked, combined with a black jumpsuit, making the stodgy fur youthful and flattering.

I’m glad that the red trend is back this fall. You can team it with almost any color, the combination of red and white is especially fresh and uplifting.

In Chinese: 感谢这几季强劲的黑白风,现在秋冬穿白色的概念已经完全被大家所接受了,而且色调上也不再局限于传统的米白、象牙白,连春夏常见的亮白色、银白色也完全四季皆宜了。

在色彩的搭配上,Miranda Kerr所穿的蓝、白、红以及Lily Collins身上极简的黑与白等都是经典的组合。我尤其喜欢Lily Collins的这件黑白撞色的皮草外套,和黑色的连身裤搭配起来,降低了皮草的正式感又能拉长腿型。

另外,今年红色又回潮了!就像小黑裙一样,每一个人一定有属于自己的那一款红。这个经典的颜色无论和中性的黑白灰,撞色的蓝、绿还是相近的粉或桔搭配起来都很漂亮,和纯白色配起来更是格外醒目。
