    BEST OF FASHION WEEK FALL 2014: TRENDS

    Time to get a head start with the trends from this season’s Fashion Weeks. Want to be a style star? You can find & wear these items right now. I’ll show you how – Blue All shades of blue work with almost anyone’s skin tone, but this season’s cerulean blue was a stand-out. Match with charcoal greys that were also seen on the runway.   Midi skirts This is the new skirt length for upcoming seasons! Pick from a variety of fabrics and designs (with slit or asymmetrical).

    BEST OF FASHION WEEK: FALL 2014/2015

    Highlighting some of the standout collections from all the Fashion weeks – New York, London, Milan, Paris. A handful of these collections were very well-thought out & styled, as well as being modern & up-to-date in today’s world, which is more and more focused on fast fashion and street style. No.21 Designed by renowned designer Alessandro Dell’Acqua, the collection was refined & feminine with a casual touch. Even though the pieces were intricate & embellished, they were styled for everyday wear. There was a great mix of slouchy sweaters or pants with sequined & feathered skirts, which made for an easy contrast.   Topshop Unique Showcasing a range of greys,…

    EMERGING FASHION LABEL: SELF-PORTRAIT

      From L to R: Illusion Flare Dress, Colour Bomb Dress, Panelled Pleated Midi Dress, Origami Wrap Skirt, Ruffled Up Panelled Dress Designed by Malaysian-born Han Chong, Self-Portrait is one of the new emerging labels from the UK to watch. Chong was originally part of the team from another emerging UK label Three Floor,  but has since started his own line, which dishes out really edgy patchwork pattern dresses. Okay, can I say how much I love it? The materials used are feminine with the use of lace & bright colours, but the strategically placed cutouts make the pieces one-of-a-kind.

    VALENTINE’S DAY LOOKS

    I must confess I really don’t like commercialised Valentine’s Day celebrations & what V Day has come to be. I’ve never been a big fan of embarrassing bouquets, pink and expensive set menus. And I believe that a girl shouldn’t have to try too hard (or really, anyone shouldn’t). So for the outfits I picked, it’s all about looking sensual without trying to hard, no crazy bright red dresses, no fancy makeup, no “look at me” attitude. But even with these easy looks & your effortless charm, he’ll still see you as the lady he wants to seduce.   Slipdresses & innerwear as outerwear are all the rage these days,…

    WHAT TO WEAR NOW: SPRING 2014

    Pink is in again! We love the shades of pale pink, dusty pink and even Pepto Bismol pink, but you definitely can’t go wrong with this. It’s a great accent colour to finish off a black or white outfit, or as a solid coloured dress on its own. Look for minimalist designs with emphasis on structural details like darts or rounded shoulders, as silhouettes are more mannish instead of your typical frilly saccharine sweet style. Scared of all-over colour? Try it in small doses like a small clutch or on your nails. All items from ASOS.   Midriffs are also the new cleavage. I know you’re thinking that you can’t pull…

    BEST OF LFW SS2013: FELDER FELDER

    Feminine but a little off-kilter is what Felder Felder is going for. Definitely a more matured collection from their previous rocker-inspired seasons, but still something very wearable for everyone with the use of printed silks and chiffon detailed dresses.

    BEST OF SPRING 2013: PROENZA SCHOULER

    You can tell a Proenza Schouler design by its modern take on prints, textures and colours. This collection was no different. I loved that it became a ‘random’ mix of everything and still everything ties in so well. Loved the use of the digital print dresses at the end with the grommet details. The PS girl is always cool & modern.         Shop Proenza Schouler Ready to Wear here.

    BEST OF SPRING 2013: JASON WU

    I loved it! Loved it! Sexy femme fatale meets feminine – lace/ leather/sheer with cutouts and yet still retaining the femininity in all of his clothes. And of course his signature show stopping gowns at the end – full of wispy tulle & sheer chiffons.                     Shop Jason Wu at Shopbop.
