Summer Crush

 

 

Lately I’ve been sporting around some big statement jewellery pieces – I think the right amount of accessories really can make the whole outfit stand out more, and it shows one’s personality too. So i want to share my golden rules of wearing bold accessories:

1. Never wear earrings and a necklace together (doesn’t matter if they are from the same set or not), it is just too much.

2. Don’t match the accessories with the outfit, but always try to mix them. Using clashing colours are always more eye-catching.

3. Play with the texture too. If I am wearing a silk blouse, I will always go big with a metal chain necklace to add some boldness to the overall feminine look.

Last but not least, go BIG or go home! ❤

Block Party

Chunky block heels are in (in fact they never go out of date)! From elegant pumps to sandals with straps to ankle booties that you could wear in fall, the block heels are so stylish with a twist of easy chic. Are you a fan of the block party? I am, that’s for sure ❤

Pleats Please!

 

Loads and loads of pleats come along with breezy fabric and a flawy skirt, unfortunately this detail is not  flattering for everyone unless you pick the right shape that suits your own body type.  If you’re a pear shape, look for a sleeveless fitted dress – you can show off your slim upper body and emphasise the waist while the pleats create a roomy skirt to hide your rounder bottom. If an apple shape, then a pleated skirt might be the better choice – wear it with a boyfriend button up shirt and heels for some effortless chic.

Apart from choosing the silhouettes for different body types, there are also some common pleats shapes that can make you look awesome. The box pleats, which look like a box from the side, probably can fix most of the body problems. Go for a thicker fabric choice to create the sporty look (Alexander Wang offers the best design of this style).. The knife pleats which look like origami are the most common kind. If you don’t have a really toned midriff, try and avoid the skirt that is pleated all the way from the waist line to bottom… trust me the pleats part will “unfold” at the waist and make you look like you have a bigger tummy. Instead, go for the style that have the pleats sewed together from waist to mid-thigh to solve the problem.

I hope everyone can find that perfect pleated skirt ❤

Tuesday Shoesday

Can I say every girl should own at least one pair of sneakers and wear them not only to the gym but as part of the outfit? You can wear them with skinny jeans for a relaxed effortless look, or try the new trend – wear sneakers with a dress for a cool sporty look. I just got mine from Nike Air Max the other day, I love the bright colours and they really do make a statement piece. ❤

What are your favourite sneakers?
