The temperatures this time of year in Shanghai reach into mid 30s (Celsius), which in a city of over 23 million inhabitants can feel downright oppressive. Conditions being what they are, what with the heat and all, figuring out what to wear can be challenging. Enter Yi Zhou and the good folks at ELLE China. Together the pair have styled a half dozen looks that are not only fashionable, but also something that can be seen from behind that pesky firewall of the People’s Republic. The looks are a perfect balance between high and low fashion. Case in point is the first look (pictured) in which Yi Zhou wears a dress by American Apparel with a Stuart Weitzman shoe and finished with H&M accessories and a Girl Chanel Bag. Worn by Yi Zhou, these looks are flawless and will make for a summer that is equally so.
