A fashionable wardrobe is not completed without denim. For an evergreen material like this, I always look for interesting designs,  like the patchwork effect, lived-in vibe and fun overall silhouette seen on today’s featured denim pieces. I love how Olivia Palermo used this humble fabric to offset her graceful midi skirt, chic pinstripe shirt and glamorous metallic accessories, resulting two effortlessly chic outfits that are great for many summer activities: from a Sunday brunch, to a drive-in movie night, anywhere you want to stay comfortable with glamour.

In Chinese:   每一个时尚达人的衣橱里一定少不了各式的牛仔单品。对于这种不退流行的经典元素,就要在设计和剪裁上寻找新意,比如今天的这些牛仔单品上看到的不同水洗色的拼接完美的做旧效果以及正流行的连体廓形等等。牛仔的经典在于它和任何材质都可以混搭,从秋冬的皮草到春夏的雪纺。奥利维亚·巴勒莫 (Olivia Palermo)就用低调的牛仔来平衡这几季流行的大伞裙,用童趣的背带裤中和男士衬衫的硬朗。这两个造型舒适又有型,适合很多夏日活动,比如约会或看汽车电影等。

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!
