Heeled leather boots
Who says it’s impractical to wear leather boots in Singapore? Jeanette wore her black pair with a navy blue dress, but they go with practically anything. You can pair them with a leather skirt for an extra chic look, or with ripped jeans and a leather jacket to get that rocker vibe.
Hop on the embroidered trend and soften a pair of distressed jeans with a bit of embroidery. Don’t want to splurge on a brand new pair of jeans? Opt to jazz up your old denim with some iron-on patches; they’re available in anything from waves to flowers to animals!
Need some bottoms that’ll make you look put-together right after rolling out of bed? Accordion skirts require next to no effort to put on, while complementing a wide variety of tops and shoes. Try wearing accordion skirts with a simple white crop tee like Jeanette to achieve that minimalist look.
Fashion girls will love the mismatched style of this sweater that allows the top to look sophisticated, yet eye-catching and fun. Perfect for cooler temperatures, these sweaters are great for the office or an evening at the movies and can be found at stores like Zara and Nordstrom.
What better to complete your outfit than a statement handbag? Opt for a large, bright tote like Jeanette’s to add a pop of colour to your look, or grab one of a neutral shade to pair easily with all your monochromatic outfits!
Beaded and bejewelled necklines
Bold and intense, look out for pieces with some bling near the neckline for an outfit with some extra drama. Imitating the look of thick, statement jewellery, Jeanette’s dress has matching designs along the sleeves and bodice area, giving the number an extra-luxurious finish.
Achieve the tough and rugged vibe of your dreams by adding camo jackets to your outerwear arsenal – they’re not only stylish, but really practical and versatile. Great when layered over tanks and crop tops, you’ll want to tuck a beanie over your hair for that insta-worthy, effortless look.
If you’ve got it, flaunt it! Corset tops are a less common alternative to a regular button-down or off-shoulder top, perfect for a steamy date or when you’re dressing to impress at a party.
You’re all dolled up for a night out, but missing a little oomph in your look. A coat of dark red or berry shade lipstick will bring out that edginess, which may be just what you’re looking for. Take it from Jeanette, whose frilly outfit paired perfectly with her sultry lip colour.
