Will spring ever come? I can’t believe another storm is coming! While we still need winter coats and heavy boots to combat the cold, a great way to infuse lightness is a pair of fresh white jeans. As seen above, Olivia Palermo & Miranda Kerr both paired theirs with neutral pieces for a sleek graphic impact. These looks are ageless and versatile, comfy yet chic.

In Chinese: 春天在哪里啊,春天在哪里?不敢相信纽约又要迎来一场雪。秋冬的厚大衣和靴子还要再拿出来穿,配上蓝黑的牛仔裤或裤袜总觉得整身装扮太暗,像Olivia Palermo和Miranda Kerr的这种石灰白的紧身裤则刚好提亮,长靴和短靴能穿,和深蓝或黑色等常见的保暖单品配起来很清爽又不突兀。这两个造型保暖、舒适,换上西装外套和高跟鞋,也可以穿去办公室。试试吧!

Colorful Winter Coats: Taylor Swift

There is no need to say more about Taylor Swift’s international influence. Beside the tremendous impact she has on the music world, her personal style is also having a large influence on the fashion world. Taking her fans into consideration, Taylor always dresses modesty, in good taste and in very feminine colors. Her style is wearable, accessible and easy to recreate.

Today, I want to share with you three of my favorite winter looks of her to help you solve the conundrum: how to select a coat that will work with our outfit, whether it’s for a night out, a day time activity or a laid-back weekend.

Camel and red are a great color combination that works at any age. A tailored red dress paired with nude pumps is a great go-to look for parties, especially during holiday season. Camel coat is a timeless, ageless winter staple. Let the red dress peep out under the coat, so that the whole look is not top-heavy.

A cobalt blue coat is my first recommendation if you are just starting to try colored winter coats. This color is flattering, attractive yet easy-going. The easy and safe way to wear it is pairing with black pieces (like the designer Stella McCartney paired here) or with items in the same color family (like how Emma Stone paired hers here). But my favorite is what Taylor Swift did (above middle): playing colorblock by pairing it with a bright orange sweater.

The third look (above right) is my favorite of the three. I never have a coat in this green-blue color. It goes so well with rich brown! I tried a similar one from Target and immediately feel in love with this fresh shade. For a coat with feminine silhouette and romantic color, I like to toughen it up with distressed chunky ankle booties.

Which one is your favorite?
