Birthday outfit idea: crop top and high waisted pantsPhoto: Jaime King; Courtesy of Aleks Kocev.

For those who want to try the hot crop top trend but not comfortable showing skin, take a hint from birthday girl Jaime King, choose one that is slightly longer with a boxy cut, and pair it with high-waisted bottom, so you still get the crop effect, but nothing shows. Another thing that caught my eyes of this look is the white and chocolate brown color combination, so chic!

In Chinese: 如果你不想错过大热的超短款潮流,又对自己的身材不是很有自信, 杰米·金(Jaime King)的这个生日造型能给你些灵感:选择稍长些、箱型剪裁、不贴身的款式,搭配上超高腰的裤子或裙子,赶时髦的同时,既有修饰的作用又能拉长身形。这个造型里另一个吸引我的元素是这一季又热起来的一个色彩组合:白色和深巧克力色。你会尝试吗?Birthday outfit idea: crop top and high waisted pants

Graphic Crop Top

Whimsical graphic combined with professional-looking cigarette pants and pumps, plus a sweet smile, makes this crop top look of Victoria Justice anything but trashy.

In Chinese: 大热的露脐装穿不好会显得很没有质感,90后的小明星维多利亚·嘉丝蒂(Victoria Justice) 配上了正式感的烟管裤和包鞋,加上她标志性的甜美笑容,让这个短款卫衣的造型活泼又端庄。 Justice Topshop Gingham Trousers, Danielle Nicole Tina  Clutch,graphic crop top, April 24 2014.

Sporty Chic

Sports lux trend pushes the boundaries further. Beautifully designed sporty pieces with eye-catching details and luxurious materials deserve to see the lights outside of gym. A structured bag and sexy leather pencil skirt will help. If you want to go one step further, stash the sneakers, put on a pair of ankle strap heels, or keep the sneaker, change the jacket to a sharp blazer.

In Chinese: 奢华运动风进一步挑战着不同场合的穿着边界。这些设计精良、材质奢华、细节夺目的运动风单品只是在健身房穿也着实有些浪费。像超模卡罗莱娜·科库娃(Karolina Kurkova)这样把引领时尚运动风的阿迪达斯的防风衣篮球鞋配上性感的短皮裙挺括的邮差包,就可以去和闺蜜聚餐、逛街,在创意行业工作的人还可以穿去办公室。如果想多些都会感,可以把篮球鞋换成绑带高跟鞋,或者保留球鞋,换上西装外套
