Morning everyone (well, it’s a bit late to say morning indeed)! I’ve just been back from Japan, it’s a great trip for me as it’s so many years since my last travel with my parents (probably over 10 years ago). It’s always different if you travel solo, with your besties, or with your parents, however, I really thank for this chance to reunite with my parents after my over 6-year living away from home. I’ve kept my luggage as light as possible this time, who knows how big the shopping plan my parents have!
The early autumn weather in Japan would be mostly like in Shanghai – Soaring to 25+ degree easily under the sun but dropping quickly below 20 degree at the night. Luckily, I am able to catch this last chance to share with you my earlier collaboration with Zaful for their summer collection.
I picked up white knit cropped top and plunging neck floral romper almost a month ago, and to be honest, I have been wearing that top on a high frequent repeat when I was still in Hong Kong and recently in Japan. For the pure colour, comfortable texture, simple cutting and fashion cropped design, this little piece makes every outfit idea easy but chic. The most recommendable outfit for this item, is a pair of good jeans or denim skirt, whatever skinny, mom jeans or straight legs, they all go well with it. The only tip I would give is, to choose medium or high waist design like mom jeans (click here to read my previous sharing about mom jeans trend). I have read a while ago that low-waist jeans is dead already, well, I reserve my opinion so far (coz the fashion trend is always going a round circle every 10/20 years), but I do agree that a low waist sexy jeans won’t look harmony with a cropped top. When writing this post, I find they’ve got new knit/sweater collection online! Highlights on their editorial page includes the mainstream knit trends like ripped sweater, V-neck sweater with cute ribbon design, cold shoulder sweater, and again one of my favourite trendy item – cropped & wrapped sweater!
跟Zaful的合作大概是一个多月前的事了吧，那时还正是夏季collection的时节，我便挑了一直想要拥有的小白cropped top和十分应景的印花romper。说真的，简单基本款果然是百搭也不嫌烦的，这条小白的反复上镜率算是很高了，我也是从香港穿到上海再穿到日本去，可见我是有多懒（哈哈）。料子舒服，白色干净百搭，cropped的设计时尚感强，搭配中高腰牛仔裤、时下流行的mom jeans、半身裙简简单单就能做到提升腰线拉长下身比例的效果（点这里，可以看我之前有关mom jeans的博文哟）。我曾看过一篇时尚编辑写的文章，标题为“低腰牛仔已死”，现在看来说的并无道理，只是时尚潮流一向是轮回转的，不知道十几二十年后会不会又流行起来？写这篇博文的时候，Zaful网站也已经上新了（点这里），秋季新款也是很长草，其中特别要说说的就是她们家的秋冬款毛衣，有破烂款、性感V领外加可爱蝴蝶结款、大热的露肩款还有我最近的大爱 – cropped 高腰加wrapped款！
I’ve just posted my floral romper outfit on my Instagram few days ago and got really positive feedback – unexpected, boo! The jumpsuit is actually slightly bigger size as it’s only S/M/L available (S is out of stock now), I will highly recommend S size if you always go for Euro size S-M or US size 2-8. I don’t mean to do it, but I did wear it when I have a day trip in Kyoto for Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Fushimi Inari Shrine, where a lot of local young girls were in their most beautiful and floral Yukata (instead of Kimono, Japanese girls wear comfortable Yukata in summer time, as a easier-going outfit for daily activities). Deep-V cutting and short design are the two reasons why I picked it up, as I was seriously considering it for beach vacation! That should be a perfect look option. Of course, no tee, no tank, no bra to distract the floral look next time :3
日本的天气随有几天较闷热，始终也是入秋了，本总觉得在jumpsuit里面搭一件白Tee有点画蛇添足、啰啰嗦嗦，没想到那天的outfit在Instagram上反应挺高！这条Zaful的印花romper简直就是为夏天的阳光沙滩设计的，料子谈不上高级，不过穿着凉凉的也舒服，常穿欧版S-M或者美版2-8号的姑娘强烈建议选小号，不然很有走光嫌疑。那天正巧去京都的清水寺和伏見義和神社，倒是误打误撞的跟一群群穿着日式传统浴服的日本姑娘们混成一堆了（日本姑娘们的浴服 Yukata 比起正式很多的和服 Kimono 来得更舒服更易走动些，所以日常里也会看到一些日本姑娘或者女士穿着这种传统且相当鲜艳美丽的浴服出街）。这条jumpsuit 深V加短裤的cutting都恰到好处，穿着也有点拉高身长的幻觉，当然里面不搭任何底衫的穿着方式才是最适合这条floral jumpsuit的，夏日风情和小性感恰到好处！
