Boxy Blazer & Denim Cutoffs

The blazer/jacket section is a ever-growing part in my wardrobe. I’m a firm believer that a great blazer is investment-worthy, and it can instantly make an outfit look sharp and polished. Here, Rihanna balanced her boxy pinstripe version with distressed denim cutoffs and feminized the look with sexy heels and bold red lips.

In Chinese: 我投资最多,平时也最喜欢买的大概就是西装外套了。多年积累下来,我的衣橱里已经有各种材质、颜色和图案的西装外套了。它们四季皆宜,好搭实穿,可以瞬间让即使最普通邋遢的造型利落有型。比如今天所选的这个造型里,蕾哈娜(Rihanna)用极短的破洞牛仔裤平衡她略带箱型剪裁的外套,性感的系带高跟鞋红唇注入了女人味。

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!
