The Warm Cuddle – Long Cardigan Outfit

Aloha,

Living in Hawaii, I did not quite realize that Autumn had come for a while until I see other fashion bloggers posting their Autumn outfits. Can’t avoid the long cardigans speaking of the Autumn outfits, so today I am going to show you my ways of styling a long cardigan.

  1. with Shorts: This is for the early Autumn, when you just need a little layer to keep warm but still want to be “cool”. The outfit will look dull without the hat and the scarf, so don’t forget your highlights!

2. With long boots: Who doesn’t love a pair of thigh-high boots in the late Autumn or Winter? You can pair with skinny jeans even if you are a pear shaped girl, because the long cardigan will cover up your wide hip and thighs!

3. With a pencil skirt: This is a feminine look, the colors are very basic and low key, but you will still get a lot of attention cause the long cardigan and heels together make you a queen.

4. With long skirts: I want to be elegant and active today, that way I picked a floral pleated long skirt, the beret hat and the scarf add some elegant and classical elements  to the whole outfit, and of course, heels.

Go Only Black and White

The color Black and White were, are and will always be classical, chic and fashionable. These two colors can go with any colors and will never go wrong, countless designers have created countless good works using only black and white, today I want to give it a shot, creating some look with only black and white.

The Lady Like:

To prevent the all black and white look from looking tedious, one always needs a highlight point to bright up the look. In this look, the black midi pleated skirt set up the ladylike style, the big buttons on the white cardigan define the high waistline, and the lace up shoes serves as the highlight point.

1

The Juvenile Look:

The sleeveless black tank and the black and white stripe skirt look very active, so the large area of the black will not look too serious. The  red polka dot scarf and the red ballet flats echo each other, adding some highlights to the look.

2

The Office Style:

Usually a stripe top is the no-no partner of a plaid bottom, but not when they are all black and white. The mash up of a strip t-shirt and a plaid pants create a unique and chic style without making it look too messed up.  And, the red polka dot scarf  and the red lips are the highlight points here.

3

The Vacation Style:

Another mash up outfit! Needless to say much, just put on a floppy straw hat and go enjoy your vacation!

White Pleated Skirt

Hi, all,

Comparing to the regular a-line skirt, a pleated skirt looks more active, especially when the wind goes by, and the folds stretch and fly, how beautiful! Today I will share my ways of styling one pleated skirt.

Casual style: A chambray shirt is always a good element to be added and create a casual style outfit, and don’t forget to wear it in a casual way (roll up the sleeves and tie in front), and add a statement necklace to get bolder look.

1

Vintage style: here are some vintage elements in this look: a striped t-shirt, a brown belt and a brown loafer, last but not least – high waistline.

2

Lady style: I picked a soft yellow henley shirt to match the skirt in this look, and the pair of yellow ballet flats here is for echoing the color of the shirt and adding a gentle, lady-like feeling to this figure.

3

The Little White Dress: Pair the white skirt with a white top to create a little white dress, of course.

Hopefully this will give you some good inspiration.

Black Pencil Skirt

Most people will picture a business lady when talking about a black pencil skirt, but can a black pencil skirt be limited to the business outfit? Not necessary, today I will share my 5 ways to style a black pencil skirt into different styles, let’s begin,

CASUAL:

Yes, a black pencil skirt can be casual, by simply adding some casual elements, like a t-shirt and a pair of sandals, in this look, I even added a scarf around my hair to look more stylish, like this:

BUSINESS, of course

Everybody knows that a black pencil skirt can be paired with a white shirt to create the business style, but sometimes you will start questioning: why do I look like a sales representative? Well, because your shirt fits you too well! Size up your white shirt, unbutton the top button and roll up your sleeves and you will look professional, and advanced, like this:

1

Wear it like a DRESS:

This is creative, pull your skirt up to your chest and you will get a dress, wear a cardigan over it and don’t forget to highlight your waistline, you are good to go!

2

A GOOD WIFE STYLE:

Pair your pencil skirt with something gentle and feminine and you will look very much like a good wife, pick some fine jewelry to add some tenderness feeling and that’s it!

THE LITTLE BLACK DRESS:

Adding a black blouse on top and look, you have your own little black dress! I put on a sleeveless lace top for this look to add just enough sexy feeling, and I picked a long pearl necklace to highlight, and then, I am all set for a party! You can add different black tops to create different styles, totally up to you!

Pretty in the Chinese Style

I bet you have seen it somewhere else, yes, I am going to show you something traditional but still popular Chinese Dress, they are called Qi Pao.

pin4

They are usually made with cotton, linen or silk, they are attached to your body without being too tight; they have two side slits slightly higher then your knees that look just enough sexy. This dress can best express the gentle, graceful and a little bit reserved quality of the Chinese women.

Look at it from the back:

It’s not tightly wrapped but the female figure can still be seen. Yes, sometimes beauty is being a little bit reserved.

Here is another one I got:

Qi Pao can be short and look more active, but the long ones are more traditional. It can be paired with scarfs/cardigans,  heels of ballet flats, and some fine jewelries like pearl, jade, or gemstones.

Little Red Dress

You seldom see people wearing red dress in the daily life, seems to be overdressed for the occasion, but not necessary, today I am going to share my ways to style a little red dress.

Formal style, of course:

3

This must be the first way that come to your mind, just put up your hair and add some heels and you are ready for a semi-formal party!

But it can be casual, like this:

4

Suppose you are going to a trip, add a straw panama hat, put on your loafer to create a vacation style, this little red dress will make you stand out easily among the people, just imagine you are on a crowded street or among a field of flowers, the color will bring you out like a super star, you will always be camera ready in this color.

Dressy casual:

It is popular to add something underneath a sleeveless dress to create a casual look, however, DO NOT WEAR A TIGHT WHOLE-COLORED T-SHIRT, which will make you look like a waitress.

A strip t shirt is a very casual but upscale element that can be added underneath like this (This was my outfit last Christmas), the statement necklace is for highlighting, and the bow ballet makes the look more casual.

1

Or, to create a casual princess look, add a chiffon shirt underneath, the bell shaped sleeves prevent the look from looking too tedious, and wear heels, of course.

2

Well, I hope you like the ideas, thanks for watching.

Go Off-Shoulder

Hello, all

The off shoulder element seems to be really hot these years, it is elegant with a sort of implicit sexy feeling – yes, if you want to show off your beautiful shape in summer without giving too much sexual hint, try to show your collarbone and a little bit of your shoulder, this works well on women with big or small bust.

Today I want to share my ways to pair an off shoulder white shirt, which I picked up from Kohl’s.com when it was on clearance. I just realized that I shouldn’t be standing in front of a white wall white shooting myself, sorry about that.

It is known to all that a white shirt is the perfect match to denim, you can easily create a casual look with jeans like this:

1

Or create juvenile look with a button front A-line denim skirt (which is also hot recently) like this:

2

Note that I am wearing a choker to look less exposed and add some detail to this look, a little square scarf will do the work too.

To create a mature look, pair it up with uniform shorts, this might be good for the afternoon tea party:

And, nothing can beat a little white dress in summer time, pair the white shirt with a white skirt and you just made a dress, it is lady-like, but not deliberate!

Well, that’s it. Wish you like it, see you next time!

 

 

Cigarette Pants

Aloha, everyone,

If you are pear shaped like me, I highly recommend you to try the cigarette pants, your big bottom won’t show with the slight room between the pants and your thigh, and they can be casual, professional and elegant – they fit you and they are versatile! Today I am going to show you my ways to styling the Cigarette Pants.

To style a French style, pair them with a stripe top, put on casual shoes to look casual (like Loafers), I put a little red scarf on my waist to highlight the look.

1

And, this pairing can look professional by just changing the hairstyle and the shoes, I made my hair into a bun and switched to a pair of black heels, to add more details to this look, put on a statement necklace and a red belt to highlight.

2

Of course, a white shirt is always a good choice in the office.

3

A sweater can also be put on top, pair with heels in the office:

5

Take off the heels and put on flats, tare the bun down and braid your hair at your side, and you are ready to go out after work!

Hopefully this helps. Thanks for watching!

 

One Dress, Four Styles

Aloha from Hawaii, today I am going to show you how I style one dress in four styles. The dress is from Target, fit and flare style, black and white design, which is a very basic dress.

First, the ACADEMIC style: add a faux white collar, tie your narrow scarf as a tie,  pair with loafer or oxford shoes and a academical purse, look, you can go back to school!

1

Second, the LADY style: add a belt in the middle, get a pair of ballet flat to echo the color of your belt. I picked red, because it is a very feminine color and it highlight my entire outfit. What a lady!

2

Third, CASUAL style: add a red polka dot scarf to highlight the outfit and make it active; tie your hair into a ponytail;  the most important causal factor is the white sneakers, which can basically go with anything in addition add a casual feel to the entire outfit.

3

Fourth, the SEMI-FORMAL style: put your hair into a low bun, get a statement necklace, pair a black belt with shiny details and don’t forget the heels, and you are ready for the party!

Hopefully this will give you some inspiration on capsule wardrobe. Thanks for watching!

Go Maxi – from Summer to Winter

A Maxi skirt can be very versatile and very practical : it makes a petite girl not looking so petite by hiding a pair of heels underneath; and it covers the legs from the burning sunshine yet still provides enough space to breath; most of all, it  makes wearing skirts in winter no longer a dream because girls can put layers of leggings underneath to keep warm without looking chunky.

I just love maxi skirts, I especially enjoy the fairytale feeling in the breeze, when my skirt is flying with the wind.

Today I want to share my ways of styling one maxi skirt from summer to winter. The skirt is from H&M, high-low design, it is brown with pink and blue floral prints on it, which gives it a more feminine feeling.

The trick of pairing a floral skirt is to find the tops which have the same color with part of the prints. For example, this skirt has brown, pink and blue colors on it, so we can use brown, pink of blue tops to echo the color of the prints.

Pairing with a pink sleeveless top ( pay attention to the high waistline):

Pairing with a blue henley shirt:

Pairing with a pink sweater:

And, a denim/leather jacket is always a perfect match, it brings sort of “cool girl”feeling to the outfit, yet still looks charming.

Pairing with a denim jacket:
