When investing in wardrobe staples, I always look for details: buttons on jackets, zippers on pants, buckles on shoes, pockets on plain tees, sleeve length of a sweater… those are what make all the difference. As you can see from today’s featured looks above of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: the pieces and colors on her are very simple, it’s the details and accessories make her outfits chic and fashionable.

Black blazer is definitely a must-have for everyone. This season, go for double-breasted version, extra bonus for those with exaggerated shoulders and nipped-in waist. As for the jumper? Cropped length is the way to go, as seen on SS2014 runways, this trend won’t go anywhere soon.

Isabel Marant is the “Chanel” for me. I’m obsessed with everything she designed, besides the beloved Caleen bootiesthis pair on Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is edgy, sexy yet practical with the leather straps, pointy toe and easy walk heels. Combined with an It bag and fabulous sunglasses, these outfits can take you from the office to dinner.

在投资衣橱必备的基本单品时,我总是会找那些有细节设计的:外套上的纽扣,裤子上的拉链,鞋子上的搭环,T恤上的小口袋或毛衣袖子的长度等等都会在搭配时让整体更出彩。就像我们在Rosie Huntington-Whiteley的这两个造型中所看到的:她所选的单品和颜色都非常简单,但正是小细节及她所用的配饰使整个look简约而不简单,低调又彰显时尚品味。


至于鞋款,每一双来自Isabel Marant的设计我都非常喜欢,除了极受追捧的Caleen铆钉踝靴外,Rosie Huntington-Whiteley所穿的这双也很值得投资,与Caleen的休闲感不同,尖头的设计,不同皮革的拼接和抢眼的搭环让这双踝靴个性中又不失女人味。配上经典的设计师包款,这些Look对于约会、出行、和朋友的聚餐以及不要求正式着装的办公室场合等都非常适合。

I'm Helen. In the huge fashion world, what attracts me the most is the way different people accessorize themselves. Our daily outfit choices are not just about the pieces we pick, they relate to something lurking deeply within our hearts: how we feel about ourselves, how we express ourselves to the rest of the world, what kind of people do we want to be and what kind of life do we want to live. Following my passion for fashion, I immerse myself in this bizarre world and try my best to share what I learned with you!
