The High Low Mix

The unexpected high-low mix is always so refreshing and eye-catching! Humble materials like denim make intricate, glamorous pieces  daytime-appropriate, thus greatly expand our wardrobe, while making dressing in the morning more exciting and fun. Besides denim jacket, a few others can do the same too, like leather biker jacket, safari jacket, camo jacket/shirt… I consider them wardrobe essentials to invest in.

In Chinese: 奢华和朴实的碰撞总是令人耳目一新。比如普通得不能再普通的牛仔常会用来和华丽的丝、锦缎或繁复高贵的印花相配,让原本只在特殊场合穿的华服也能出街了,大大拓展了我们衣橱的利用率,也让搭配的过程更富想象力,更有趣。除了牛仔外,其它被时尚圈宠爱的,用于混搭的单品还有很多,比如机车夹克、军旅外套、迷彩衬衫等等都是实用好穿的衣橱必备。

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!
