The hot summer day is almost come to an end, Maybe you are going to pack you lovely summer pieces into wardrobe. But, WAIT! Do not pack away them so fast. With just a few style tips you can turn your favorite summer day basic items into autumn fashion! 

There are already some starts showing the magic styling tips for you. For example, Blake Lively, Alexa Chung, Brooklyn Decker and more! Learn from them!

Sometimes making a seasonal transition is as simple as extending your sleeve length. Miranda Kerr wore her two-tone A.L.C. trousers with an arm-baring top, while Blake Lively styled her Lanvin pair with a long-sleeved shirt.

That perfect strapless red dress can span the seasons with addition of a clever cover-up. Charlize Theron wore her Lanvin peplum design sans topper, while Brooklyn Decker warmed up her Katie Ermilio wrap dress with the addition of a blazer and close-toed shoes. 

It doesn't get easier than this! Make a classic pair of black shorts winter-ready with the addition of opaque tights. Ginnifer Goodwin and Alexa Chung wore nearly identical outfits, with the exception of Chung's warmth-adding hosiery.

Do you got the inspiration now? Act to stylish yourself at the very beginning of the fall!

Emma Watson: A Bona Fide Vixen on Glamour Cover

In the last post, I have included the top vogue cover models, Today let’s move to another fashion magazine cover: Glamour. As can be easily guessed from the title of the post, the heroine today is Emma Watson.

It can be said that Emma Watson really defines "girl crush" for us, these days. If anyone ever doubted her ability to stretch herself beyond the role of Hermione, they're eating their words — this girl is quickly turning into a megastar, showcasing serious talent and boasting status as a beauty and a style icon. The next step in her evolution? Posing for Glamour's October cover in a sultry shoulder-baring dress.

Emma talks about her role in the upcoming film The Perks of Being a Wallflower,  in the inside portfolio. If you've read the book, you're probably already psyched. For those of you who haven't, we won't give anything away, but let's just say we're marking the midnight showing on our calendars already.

And of course, she's staying grounded as ever. On her newfound adult fame, she says ""I was always the smart, nerdy one. People put you in boxes, and that was my box. So it's really nice [the compliments], but looks have never been something that I focused on or that people around me did. But I liked being the nerdy one." Way to be, Emma! Take a look at emma's cover shot.

High-neck Halter Style Is in the Trend

Hello guys, Happy Tuesday! Sorry for the delay of the post, I hope you would allow me to take a short breakJ

Let’s come to today’s topic: the high neck halter. Perhaps in the impression of most people, the deep v-necklines are much more sexier than high collar styles. I also tend to think so. However, after I see some of the high neck halter look from some celebrities, I change my mind. You can never imagine how sexy chic it looks until you try it yourself.

If you do not believe that this style can create such a magic, you can check some of the celebrity’s look first. Naturally, the always stylish Kruger makes a look with a high neck halter at the UNICEF ball in Beverly Hills. The layered look balances the conservative, high neckline of the top with the slightly sheer underskirt and long skirt creates the equal parts chic and darling.

Following the fashion is the Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel. She turned up with a stunning royal blue dress in semi-sheer design. Besides, the high neckline halter with column silhouette elongates her figure perfectly for a very flattering result.

The high-neck halter works just as well with shorter hemlines too as besides the long ones above. Let’s look at Bosworth’s look: the delicate neckline highlights her long and beautiful neck perfectly, while the below-the-knee hemline keeps the piece fun and youthful. Do you like the look?

Taylor Swift’s Fresh Summer Look

Happy Wednesday! It is the middle of the week now, keep going and the weekend will come soon. To begin the post, I would still love to remind you all to take care of yourselves in the summer heat. Always remember to keep cool.

As you may know, that in the summer days, the light fabric and light color can be helpful to keep cool. The popular female singer Taylor Swift recently attended the Teen Choice Award 2012 and she brings a fresh white yet fashion look to the ceremony.

Unlike her “sequin and sparkles” style in the previous time, this time she committed to the “neutrals only” style. For this summer-centric award show, Taylor chose a cream Maria Lucia Hohan dress.

The silk dress is delicate and soft with illusion shoulder straps. The spotlight of the dress is that it reveals an interesting low back with illusion detailing. The dress can not suit the summer any more. Soft in material, light in color and fashion in design, it is just perfect!

Meanwhile, her wavy lock was styled into a chic chignon with a beautiful brooch detail. This hairstyle contributes to her fresh summer look! Do you like Taylor Swift’s look?

Fresh & Elegant Louise Della

Hello lovelies! Really hot summer days here. Cathy would like to kindly remind you all to keep cool in the hot days and always take careJ

Let’s come to today’s topic. Today I found a collection of fresh and elegant apparel in I love it so much and as you may know, I am always generous to share good stuffs with others instead of keep it to my ownJ

The Louise Della is a charming and colorful boutique in Paris. It is a welcoming place where you can tempt to buy everything. The designer of Louise Della is label Blandine. She is a very charming woman. What I admire her most is her concentration on the work and the fashion career. She said in the interview that she need to be alone much of the day otherwise she maybe distracted by other’s presence.

When comes to the question of elegance, she also has her own interpretation. She thinks that elegance means being natural, feeling beautiful from inside and knowing how wear a garment, to ensure that the silhouette is highlighting even if the garment in question is somehow eccentric. Elegance is also a question of voice, posture, and how you smile. How well said!

Take a look at some of Louise Della designs.

Add Aqua Colors to Wardrobe

Happy Friday! The five days work finally comes to an end and the weekend is coming! I guess most of you would be in a light mood as me. So how about talk about some fashion style that is happy and delightful?

The summer season is always a season for the beach and sea. A lot of people would plan a summer holiday on the beach. So sometimes the time on the beach is always meant happy and fun. Thus the aqua colors which symbolize the sea and beach are very popular for the summer season.

It would be great if you add your wardrobe with some fantastic aqua colors inspired from the ocean. The subdued hues of turquoise will make you dream of the crystal clear water in the Aegean Sea. Besides, the color shades that are a little darker with a hint of green will you on a journey to the Nordic waters.

However, if you just did not satisfy with this, you can add some different shades of aqua colors no matter with the garment or accessory. In sum, you would be an aqua goddess in it!

Check some of the most popular aqua colored items this season!

Three Brilliant Ways to Dress Up the Up-dos

Hello Friends! It is the start of the new week, be happy and make a good start! The last two post are featured in pastel wedding dress and boho-chic Otaduy wedding dress. And today let’s change the topic into hairstyle!

Fashion and beauty just included so many aspects. And of course the hairstyle is an important aspect. In the summer days, I guess most girls would up-do the hair, weather with a bun or braid. And I found 3 brilliant ways to dress up the up-dos on refinery29. Let’s check it,

Ways one: Flower girl
There would be nothing more romantic and ethereal about wearing flowers in the hair. In making the look, the hairstylist Brown went a bit crazy with the blooms to create a multi-colored wreath woven into a milkmaid braid. “Everyone loves flowers,” he says, “they are fresh, smell good, and bring a kind of sentiment.”

Ways two: Heavy Metal
Adorn the ‘do with a statement-making necklace is pretty. Brown describes this look as playful and great for summer because hair is up off the face, but still makes a strong visual look.. When comes to the question, why it is so popular? Brown explained that girls love looking like a princess. 

                                   Photographed by Aaron Richter
Ways three: Off the cuff

Take the top knot to new heights by adding on bracelets, bangles, and cuffs as accents. Brown says that he loves this look for summer because it keeps the hair away from the face, plus it’s strong, cool and easy to do.

Currently this collection are designed and manufactured in Barcelona. The Otaduy wedding dresses tend to have an ethereal feel. However, unlike some other haute couture, the dresses have a kind of simplicity which allows the brides to make it her very own. Carolina said that she wishes the brides wear her dress can also combined with a pair of boots or a simply flower crown in the hair and etc. Each piece of the dress may be different in style and feel, however this is a common theme for the whole collection that is the bride can combine it with other accessories to make her specific style. The bride is the heroine on the big day and she plays the rules!

In order to creat the airy feeling, the collection makes use of silk and crepe and other soft materials. The fine material and delicate design can give a folky-vintage look to bride likes the boho style. If you are also the bride loves the style, then do not miss the Otaduy collection!

Dreamy Pastel Bridal Dresses

Hello dear friends! It has been long time since I did not share wedding gowns with you all. I have been engaged in sharing some fashion tips for summer these days. However, as you can find in my profile that cathy loves fashion and romantic stuffs. So today I would share some wedding gowns with you all.

Actually, in the previous posts, I have shard about Pronovias & Zuhair Murad series. Today the dresses are not from one specific designer or band, rather they settled together for a common theme: pastel! I come across it on Brides and I can not help sharing with you all!

The pastel hue is just pretty and soft. Pink, peach, pale blue are for your choice. Besides the tulle material also contribute to tenderness of the dress. It is just so dreamy and the love for it is beyond words. Would you consider having a pastel dress instead of a traditional white one? Even if you do not want to break the traditional rule, and follow the main stream, it is okay to just enjoy the dreamy pastel shoot.
