Game day

This is one of the editorial shoots that my husband and I put together a few weeks back. “Game day” is a sports inspired fashion shoot that combines the high fashion names with high street brands and brings streetstyles into sophisticated editorial looks. The three looks were inspired by soccer, baseball and tennis.

This editorial shoot also got featured on MISSBISH, a women fashion magazine and online store. I really appreciate this opportunity and very grateful that we have the whole team that working behind the secens to make this happen!

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 ❤

In the Fold

As simple as black and white, Josh Olins used natural props like dry leaves and branches to create the most down to earth yet elegant shots.

Lace Up

Now those Christmas parties are over, it is time to ditch the sequins party dresses and get ready for the New Year! The delicate lace detail is a great choice! Showing some skin on your arms or neckline is much more sophisticated than wearing a mini skirt with bare legs (brrrr… cold). This effortless chic style will easily make you stand out of the crowd!

Midi is the New Length

Midi skirt, where the hemline hits around mid-calfs, is very sophisticated and elegant. This style flatters almost every body type. The high waisted long skirt elongates the bottom half of the body, which makes you look taller and leaner, but still shows off your slim ankles and feet. You can pair it with a cropped tee or a cropped knitted top for a casual look. Tuck in a button-up or bow-tie silk blouse will add more feminine touch to this style, also the softness of the shirt will add contrast to the thickness of the skirt. Heels are must-have for this whole look, unless you are tall like models, otherwise don’t wear flats, you will end up looking shorter than you are.

One other reason midi skirt is very in for this season – it is winter friendly! You can wear tights, ankle boots and a long tailored coat on top to keep warm and stylish!

I hope you enjoy this look! ❤
