Wool coats are cold weather essentials. I especially love camel ones for their warm and cozy vibe. Another fall/winter must-have is knee-high or over-the-knee boots. You can wear them with skinny jeans, leggings, shorts or skirt.

When hunting for staple pieces like these, I prefer those with sleek silhouette and minimal details, like this Fay funnel neck coat and Stuart Weitzman leather boots spotted on Olivia Palermo above.

I also love how she makes these basic pieces current by letting the crisp white collar peep out. Layering a fur vest underneath is also a nice tip for staying warm yet stylish.

In Chinese: 羊毛外套一定是秋冬必备,我尤其偏爱棕色系,有温暖感,又很衬我们东方人的肤色。另一个秋冬必备是及膝或膝上靴,可以搭配牛仔裤、内搭裤、短裤或短裙,时尚又保暖。对于这些实穿的单品,投资时可以选择那些线条简洁,没有什么零碎装饰的款式,才能不退流行,比如名媛Olivia Palermo身上的这件Fay的立领大衣Stuart Weitzman最经典和最受欢迎的高筒靴

除了明智地选择单品外,Olivia Palermo的搭配技巧也一向是很值得我们学习的。今天的这两个造型里,她通过一件简单的白衬衫就把这些基础单品穿出了潮流感。另外,把皮草背心穿在大衣里也是既保暖又有层次感的好方法。

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!
