Fashion pieces to Splurge on:
If the Fall/Winter ’19 runways have taught us anything, it is that tartans, plaids and checks are going to be a hot favourite of the season. So get your wardrobe ready with this Burberry wrap shirt dress and pair this with booties for extra edge while at work. Another tip: You can wear this as a coat too.
A pair of flats should always be in your shoe closet because as much as we love a pair of heels, we can’t wear them the whole day without our feet protesting halfway through. Plus, a statement pair like these bedazzled Balenciaga mules will dress up any look instantly. Match it with a black jumpsuit and silver jewellery for work, or wear with a velvet dress for a night out.
Get preppy chic with this red and blue trimmed number from Gucci. The ruffle details add a touch of femininity while the waistband helps cheat an hourglass figure. Finish with a pair of white court sneakers for an Ivy League look.
Part of a special collaboration that features the beloved cartoon elephant Dumbo (its live-action movie is slated to hit cinemas here end-March), this powder blue jumper with a cute sparkly hem is a fun piece to wear to work on casual Fridays. Layer under a slip dress for a quirky and fun vibe, or over your dress to keep warm in the harsh air-conditioned office.
We love a bag that can be worn in many ways. This piece for example, can be carried either as a clutch, shoulder or crossbody bag. The deep purple colour can be easily matched with what is in your closet, and the four-ring adornment, encrusted with Swarovski crystals, gives it a luxe vibe. If you really want to let it shine, evoke the colour wheel and match it with a canary yellow dress.
If this eggshell mini dress is too revealing for work, pair it with a pair of black skinnies or leather pants and boots for a rocker chick look. If not, it is a great weekend date look just with gladiator sandals.
Summer is right around the corner and and you can start getting in the mood with this bright tangerine number from Louis Vuitton. This lightweight, waterproof piece is great for the beach. Pair with the H&M bikini below and round up the look with some quirky statement shades.
Louis Vuitton boutiques are located in Marina Bay Sands, ION Orchard and Ngee Ann City.
You risk looking one-dimensional when you wear black, because the colour absorbs all the light. But this black printed blouse from Saint Laurent features details such as a frilly high collar and a removable lavallière tie, which adds visual interest to the look. Go monochromatic but contrast the soft cashmere with a denim skinny jeans and leather boots.
Show off your bold side at work with this statement violet number from Gucci. You can pare it down with cream coloured bottoms and slinky black Mary-Janes, or wear it under a sleeveless black dress for a preppy vibeStea
A celeb favourite brand, these red Gentle Monster sunnies herald the coming of summer and would match perfectly with your summer essentials, such as sundresses and kimonos. Complete the look with espadrilles and a bright tote.
An exclusive to Net-a-Porter, this shirt dress by Jonathan Anderson takes inspiration from a tailored men’s shirt but sports feminine ruffles and bows for a quirky contrast. Juxtapose this flirty number with a pair of black leather boots.
Look chic and protect your eyes while you’re at it with these classic aviators from Ray-Ban, which have been given a modern twist with gradient lenses. Match the gold tones of the frame with gold jewellery and a warm-toned ensemble such as an orange jumpsuit.
Save with these:
French tuck this rich sapphire-toned blouse over cream straight leg trousers and nude stilettos for a simple yet effective French girl aesthetic. Finish with gold jewellery to complement the gold buttons on the blouse. Tousled hair recommended.
Made with ribbed knit, this A-line skirt is an easy and comfortable piece to put into your work rotation as it requires little to no ironing and comes with an elasticated waistband. Finish with the matching top for a cheery look to brighten up gloomy Mondays.
One word: Fierce. Ditch your black pumps and show off your #girlboss look with this sassy pair. Match these stunning red stilettos with a sharp, tailored black pantsuit ensemble.
Channel boho vibes with this blue prairie dress from H&M. Its airy weave means you can still keep cool despite the long sleeves and high collar. Match it with brown leather boots and a simple shoulder bag.
Channel street style and match this plum bandeau top with high-waisted cargo pants and chunky dad sneakers. Or show off your sex appeal and wear it with a blazer and cigarette pants for work.
You can never go wrong with a basic sweater. Brighten up your work outfit by French tucking this cheery piece into a pair of palazzo pants and slipping into some knife flats for a slouchy, model off-duty look.
We love the sexy decorative straps of this bikini top. Wear with its matching bottoms and the aforementioned Louis Vuitton slides and you’ve got your summer beach party outfit ready. Don’t forget a breezy coverall and finish with margaritas.
Depart from the usual sand coloured woven bags with this minaudière-style crossbody bag from Zara. The surprise is in its inner printed lining. Pair this with a canary yellow sundress and a sandals for a summer party look.
Soft and light, this cami will keep you cool in the summer heat. The cross back detail adds sensuality without going overboard. Pair this bright piece with a pair of indigo denim jeans and finish with kitten heels for a sexy date outfit.
Tuck this orange-red sweater into khaki wide-legged trousers for a smart casual yet comfortable look that is appropriate for work or for museum dates. Wear with leather mules for a stylish finish.
The vertical stripes of this Pomelo jacket will help to elongate your stature. Go bold and add further length by wearing with its matching skirt and slipping into a pair of heels. Or wear with a maxi skirt to add a dose of femininity to the masculine cut.
A simple white t-shirt and denim skirt combo, work with a comfy pair of sneakers, will make you look stylish enough for a casual weekend date or a girls’ day out. The paperbag detail adds intriguing detail to the typical denim skirt.
