10 Summer to Fall Outfit Ideas: Street Style Edition

Latest trends

I love street style. We all do. It is so refreshing to see real people from all around the globe take on trends and interpret it in their own unique way. I know that I get tons of style inspiration from street style. As we fashionistas prepare for the changing of the seasons, let us allow these street style standouts to guide us. Here are some of the truly stellar outfits I’ve come across, consider this my styling cheat sheet for stunning summer-to-fall style:

Bring your Florals into Fall

Floral print is one the best parts of spring/summer style. Bring your love for floral style into the fall by wearing it with classic fall pieces like knit sweaters, leather jackets, tights, and booties.

Pastel Trousers Instead of Dark Denim

We all love our denim, but there are days that require a little bit of refresh. Bring in a bit of the new and mix up your summer to fall outfits with some pastel trousers. Plus, these pastel trousers are a novel way to add more color into your look, and it looks way more polished too.

Layering with Denim Cutoffs

You practically live in denim cutoffs during the summer. Don’t let go of these shorts just yet when you wear tights underneath it instantly feels like fall. Thrown in sleek boots and blazer for good measure.

Cape Chic

Designers were all hot and heavy for the cape for Fall 2015, a major piece to invest in to update your closet, you can always count on capes for exceptional transitional staying power. Throw onto any ensemble for extra coziness.

Cozy Up Your Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are just so comfy and chic. These easy and breezy pieces can last until fall when layered with a slouchy knit cardigan. Finish off with ankle boots and maybe even a scarf, and you’re all set.

Summer Wedges + A Graphic Scarf

Wedges are a summer staple, and they’ll still look good when the leaves start to change color. Slip into your daily uniform and up the seasonal chic of your wedges when you finish off your outfit with a trendy graphic print scarf.

Poncho It Up

Last year’s Burberry poncho trend is still going strong. What’s even better is that this trend is so easy to pull off. Pick a poncho scarf or an oversized scarf in a striking print. Simply thrown on, and go.

Breathe New Life Into Your Summer Dress

A summer shirtdress can be worn beyond the beach or boardwalk. Layer a turtleneck underneath your dress and put a belt on to create a flattering silhouette around the waist. Knee-high boots in an animal print turn up the glam even further.

Jump Into Fall

Overalls are such a fun summer trend. Keep the fashion fun going when you layer a ribbed knit sweater underneath. You can even opt to up the style ante with a statement necklace or status bag.

Don’t Leave Your Colorful Summer Sneakers Behind

When the seasons change and temps get colder, you may be tempted to stick to a neutral palette. Resist that urge and wear color when you feel like it. Not only is it a mood booster, but color makes you stand out from the crowd. Continue wearing your colorful summer sneakers well into the season and increase the chicness when you match your cold weather accessories, like the beanie, with your sneaker color.

Fashion Bipolarity

Latest trends

Do you enjoy fashion extremes just like I do? I am so guilty of dressing the complete opposite of what I did the day before. You should definitely let your mood of the day dictate what you’re wearing sometimes, it just makes fashion and dressing up even more exciting since it’s so unpredictable!

I wore this embellished striped top previously with a blush pink midi skirt, and now I take more of a youthful approach with a huge amount of street style rebel vibe.

_DSF7819

This look really goes to show how versatile stripes can be, girly and feminine one day, and rock n’ roll the next. I kept the same beauty look, did you notice? The dark red lip matches this look perfectly as well.

_DSF7821

_DSF7823

How much am I loving the grunge rock feel of these printed slip-on sneakers? Again, this is further proof of how opposite I can be with my style. I do love my heels, but there are days when nothing can beat an edgy pair of comfy sneaks.

_DSF7826

These jeans are so comfortable that I can actually surf in them! City surf, that is. Jeans are so great for traipsing about and having urban adventures.

_DSF7834

But what makes this look so amazingly rugged and chic? The ripped denim, of course! I love the ripped denim trend because it just lends that undone glam to your casual look, and if you choose to dress it up with something sparkly for the evening, it looks just as chic. The boyfriend fit of the jean makes this pair extra trendy and of-the-moment.

_DSF7838

_DSF7840

I used the same fuchsia YSL nano cross-body bag in this look, and it works just as well. The structured shape of the handbag works to make this look feel a little more put together, and a little less rugged and slovenly. And it is an excellent pop of color too, since this outfit is mostly dark tones.

_DSF7845

_DSF7849

This ensemble really makes the embellishment on the tee stand out, a brilliant spin on the denim and tee casual dressing. So take that tip to heart, a little bling on your T-shirt goes a long, long way into glamming up your daytime look.

_DSF7853

_DSF7857

Everybody should always have time for funny faces in between #OOTD shots right? I enjoyed this look too much! Isn’t it amazing when you can use one piece in two very different ways? It simply goes to show that any piece can be versatile when you let your creativity rule.

So, which look would you go for: laidback rock chick or dainty femme? Let me know!

Style Icon: Nicole Kidman

Latest trends

Multi-awarded Australian actress and producer Nicole Kidman has made a solid name for herself in the film industry as a prolific actress with major acting chops. Tall, statuesque, and striking Kidman has played a variety of roles ranging from Virginia Woolf to Grace of Monaco. Her famous relationships, a marriage with Tom Cruise and her successful marriage with Keith Urban, aside, Nicole Kidman has more than her acting achievements and Hollywood and worldwide fame going for her. She lands on the best dressed list almost every single time she steps onto the red carpet. Her red carpet style is classic and flawless, just like she is.

Here are my picks for Nicole Kidman’s best looks on and off the red carpet:

8c7ca754d56b7e752eab0c33a74339b6

An update on the classic LBD, the sheer paneling of this dress and the little collar detail just make for an absolutely darling combination. Nicole finished off this look beautifully with black onyx drop earrings and a pair of red sexy stiletto heels. 012415-nicole-kidman-594

We’re not accustomed to seeing Nicole Kidman dressed down. But even her version of dressing down still contains her signature polish and sophisticated sense of style. The polka dot sweater and printed trousers work so well together because of the unified color scheme of black and white. I especially love the slightly oversized cuffs peeking out from underneath her sweater. The black bow pumps are amazing too!b809f559597b26bab0eb864d061100a6

What makes this dress a red carpet standout is that bow tied around the neck, which cascades to the back. Kidman is an expert at selecting red carpet gowns that combine a simple silhouette with a dramatic detail, this is one such dress. The halter neckline is also perfect on her lithe frame. She lets the color sing and keeps her beauty look natural. main.original.585x0 (4)

This sweet springtime inspired frock is completely adorable. What adds a bit of edge to it are the cutouts laid over top and her sleek up do. Opting to finish off the look with a pair of coral pumps is a great choice as it adds a strong hint of bright hue to this ensemble. main.original.585x0

Kidman’s brand of sex appeal is all about showing off the right things. Whether it’s her toned shoulders or in this case, her great legs, she abides by the rule of thumb that you should only expose one portion of your body to achieve tasteful and sexy at the same time. The studs on her dress and the multiple straps on her footwear add to the seductive feel of this look. Nicole+Kidman+Dresses+Skirts+Beaded+Dress+GbiKxF_luhTl

This embellished gown gives a strong statement on color. The understated and elegant navy color is what provides the timelessness to this dress, any other color would’ve been too boring or too over-the-top. Navy hits all the right notes. Special attention must be paid to Kidman’s beauty look here, center parted poker straight hair with smoky eyes and pink pout, so modern and elegant. Nicole+Kidman+Dresses+Skirts+Cocktail+Dress+6Hfb7yKsgSYl

I am positively in love with this dress! It is one of those dress silhouettes that has a little bit of vintage inspiration but definitely feels contemporary. Nicole looks stunning in it! The dress hugs her every curve and looks great against her skin tone and red hair. Nicole+Kidman+Pants+Shorts+Leggings+G8a50T7hwysl

Nicole Kidman does casual in leggings, a bohemian loose top, and strappy gladiator sandals. Her sleek high ponytail, structured beige leather tote, and chic black sunnies make this casual outfit look more pulled together. She looks so cute beside her handsome hubby, Keith Urban!

Style Icon: Miranda Kerr

Latest trends

Ex Victoria’s Secret Angel and organic skincare maven (check out her skincare line, Kora Organics), Miranda Kerr, is an emerging style icon of our time. Often featured in magazines and fashion blogs for her stellar street and red carpet style, she has definitely transcended from model off duty style to bona fide global sartorial star. Her outfits are often referenced, pinned, imitated, but you simply can’t duplicate the modern sophistication and unique elegant aura that Miranda naturally has. Perhaps it’s her Aussie upbringing or her model mojo, one thing is for sure, Miranda Kerr is a mogul in the making and a style icon to watch out for.

Here are my top picks for Miranda Kerr’s best looks:
main.original.585x0

Miranda Kerr’s signature is trendy yet subtle. Her understated way of mixing prints in this ensemble should be your top wardrobe inspiration. The leopard slip-on heeled mules and the casual striped tank is an unexpected combo that works. The Hermes Birkin and white cropped pant add that polish, that her style is known for.

main.original.585x0 (8)

Miranda’s jetsetting lifestyle necessitates impeccable airport style, and her outfits while in transit is always on point. A top knot and oversized sunglasses are practical, while her Chanel tweed jacket and D’orsay low heels are ladylike and comfortable at the same time. 

main.original.585x0 (6)

A graphic printed sheath dress gets upgraded with a jewel tone accent. A surprising detail and a welcome one at that, the sapphire blue is the perfect complement to the deep purple hue on the dress. Miranda sures knows the power of a pop of color.

main.original.585x0 (5)

Another day, another amazing airport outfit. Miranda can teach a master class on stylish travel looks. This outfit oozes simplicity and advanced fashion acumen. All white underneath a tailored navy blazer with a casual pair of bright pink sneaks; you’ve just found your go-to look for your next airport jaunt.

main.original.585x0 (4)

Of course, I can’t do her best looks without some of her amazing red carpet style. This white gown with gold embellishments and sexy cutouts is a stunner. With red lips and wavy Veronica Lake inspired hair waves, this looks is Grecian goddess meets Old Hollywood.

main.original.585x0 (3)

Miranda Kerr knows how to channel sexy, and she shows in this look that you don’t need to bare too much skin to be sexy. A curve-hugging lace frock with pointed toe T-strap heels feels vintage yet modern, feminine yet sassy.

main.original.585x0 (2)

Miranda’s sartorial skill? Mixing trends while still keeping it classy. A white jumpsuit with a fringe jacket is already a bold statement, but she adds an extra layer of glam with a gold minaudiere, embellished ankle strap heels, and a Versace belt. It is an uncharacteristically maximalist look, but her simple beauty look balances it.

main.original.585x0 (1)Redefining the athleisure trend with an easy and laidback white cotton dress and long cardigan, her pulled back hair and pastel blue structured tote finishes off the casual vibe nicely.

Isn’t her style amazing? I simply love her effortless elegance and the way she manages to make casual look so elevated. Which look is your fave?

Skirting the Issue

Latest trends

I always fall in love with basic pieces that have a little bit of a twist to it. We all love stripes, and we all have it in our closets. It’s easy to mix and match with other items, and it isn’t too plain to be considered boring. I particularly love the interesting cut and bat wing sleeves of this striped casual top. Not to mention, its eye-catching cabochon crystal brooch-like embellishment. It’s such a vintage inspired detail! How can I not fall in love? It’s like it was calling out my name!

This outfit is part one of my styling series. Watch out for my next post, I’ll show you a totally different way to style this striped top.

For now, let me tell you why midi skirts should be your next wardrobe investment.

_DSF7639

When in doubt, skirt the issue. Skirts are an easy pick for me during those days when it’s too balmy out, but I still want to look ladylike and well put together. Breezy and flowing skirts are the answers to your summer sartorial problems. If you’re tired of wearing denims, then consider midi skirts your new best friend for the spring/summer season. What’s even better is that midi skirts are on-trend, and when styled appropriately can be worn to more formal functions as well due to its conservative length.

_DSF7580 _DSF7605

A bright red cross body bag is a match made for a black and white striped top. It is a nod to the nautical feel of stripes, and gives it a more graphic pop. This handbag also matches perfectly with the color of the heeled sandals.

_DSF7624-2Notice the tortoiseshell on the platform and heel of my sandals? Isn’t that such a great little detail? It adds an earthiness to this look and contrasts it with the girliness of the textured blush pink midi.

_DSF7633

The key to this unexpectedly chic color story? The rule of three. The three major pieces in my look, my skirt, shoes, and handbag, all belong to the same rosy pink hued color family, which allows the black and white stripes to stand out even further.

_DSF7670 _DSF7675

The dark red lip is a great contrast to all the rosy tints, don’t you think? I enjoy making a statement with my lip color. It really does make a big difference. Another outfit element worth noting is the cinched waist, emphasizing your curves and your shape is always best.

What did you think of this outfit? Where would you wear it to?

Top 3 Runway Trends

Latest trends, Reviews

Here I am again, giving you the cure to your Singapore Fashion Week hangover. If you’re on the lookout for new pieces to refresh your wardrobe and put some more pizzazz into your personal style, look no further than the runways of the recently concluded, wildly successful Singapore Fashion Week 2015. This year’s crop of designers was brimming with so much talent and we have definitely taken notice of their designs and their inspirations as well. There was so much creativity and great ideas on the runway this season, we’ve definitely got more than enough to last us until the next fashion week.

Trendspotting during Singapore Fashion Week was so much fun! It was an amazing experience to see how different minds translated and interpreted the trends of our time. Here’s my quick rundown of the top 3 trends on the Singapore Fashion Week runway:

1. Bohemian with an Edge

Can I really do a trend roundup without including Thakoon? This international design superstar definitely lives up to his stellar reputation with his collection. The 70s bohemian fashion movement has certainly been a major trend player lately, and Thakoon presented his own take on the boho style and spirit.

Knee-high gogo-inspired boots in bright red, lightweight mock turtlenecks, and vintage frame bags sashayed down the catwalk. With an earthy color palette of burnt orange, navy blue, brown, and beige, Thakoon stayed true to the decade but put his own twist, of course. Embellishments, flowing pleated skirts, and athletic stripes were modern details that elevated his 70s look.

2. Japanese Inspired

Inspired by one of the ancient cultures of Asia, there were lots of Japanese inspiration on the runway. Textiles from the region and obi belts abound. Ong Shunmugam’s cruise collection featured intricate Japanese textiles beside menswear-inspired pinstripes. Styled with super trendy white sneaks, the juxtaposition of the stripes with Japanese prints and patterns is the new go-to print on print for stylish it girls. This is definitely an ensemble that you should cop, it’ll make for a double tap worthy #OOTD.

Silvia Teh, the winner of the Harper’s Bazaar New Gen Design Award, also took a cue from Japanese culture and fashion. Teh also used stripes, but in a different way. Graphic, solid and thick stripes adorned her creations with girly schoolgirl skirts and elegant satin fabric finishes.

3. Tailored Minimalism

The minimalist trend has been going strong for years now. Two designers made standout collections featuring this trend, Dion Lee and Velda Tan’s Collate The Label.

Dion Lee’s ultra chic and slightly futuristic netting details beautifully offset his stark and forward thinking designs. With a neutral palette accented with jewel tones, Dion Lee showed off his incredible tailoring skills with an array of curved sleeve cuffs, structured shoulders, and strategic cut-outs.

Velda Tan’s Collate The Label cemented her place in the Singaporean fashion scene with her collection of sporty yet luxe wear. I loved her black, white, and pastel color palette. It was so on-trend, and it is so perfect for dressing stylishly in the tropics. The curves and sharp angles interspersed within each of her pieces is a beautiful sight to behold.

Best of Singapore Fashion Week 2015

Latest trends

Singapore Fashion Week may be over, but there’s still a lot of inspiration we can draw from it. There were so many exceptional shows and I met so many amazing people. You’ve probably seen a lot of runway reviews by now, but here are the best of the best. It’s quite a tough task given all the talented designers and stunning shows we witnessed. Read on for my picks for the best shows during this year’s Singapore Fashion Week.

Best New Designer: Collate The Label by Velda Tan

What’s great about Singapore Fashion Week is getting to know new labels and seeing the great work of up-and-coming designers. Velda Tan, the creative and innovative mind behind Collate The Label, certainly distinguished herself during Singapore Fashion Week with her modern, minimalistic, and luxurious approach to women’s wear. The Collate The Label runway show generated a lot of well-deserved buzz and earned itself a loyal fashion fan following. Here are some snaps from the show:

Billowy wide leg pants, and matching coats in neutral tones were a hit on the runway. Structured dresses with feminine details like peplum and pastel colors were also key trends.

Best Atmosphere: Harper’s Bazaar Asia New Generation Show

I love young talent! There’s just a different energy and an elevated sense of excitement when young talent showcase their distinctive aesthetic on the runway. Harper’s Bazaar certainly provided these designers a great platform to make their creative visions come to life. Fashion designers from all over Asia were represented. Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore all had representatives who showed their designs on the Singapore Fashion Week runway. I absolutely loved everything about Silvia Teh’s designs. She is such a hardworking talent and it is always a pleasure to see such amazing people win.

Best Clothes: Victoria Beckham

Among all the stellar shows, one stands head and shoulders above the rest, and that is the finale Singapore Fashion Week show by Victoria Beckham. The certified style icon and bona fide fashion mogul flew in to Singapore as part of her Asia tour, and her collection definitely didn’t disappoint. Fashion fans got the understated elegance and modern glamour that they were expecting from Posh’s namesake label. Victoria Beckham’s collection showed off beautiful tailoring with impeccable detailing like intricate folding patterns and men’s suiting details. It was to say the least, nothing short of perfection, the ultimate collection for the modern woman who loves and lives fashion.

Singapore Fashion Week: Lace-Up Heels

Latest trends

Today is the first day of Singapore Fashion Week and I decided to make a little prediction on what the street stylers and trend setters are going to choose when it comes to shoes.

We shall see if I am right by the end of the week! In the mean time…Ta-da!

Yes, as you have probably guessed, it is Lace Up Heels.

There is always a footwear trend every season that prove to be the fast favorite among the fashion crowd. This year, lace-up heels seems to be the reigning shoe of the moment. From the platforms to the mules, lace-up heels are definitely the more glamorous and more feminine of other shoe trends. Delicate straps accentuate and flatter your legs and the sleek design is easy to coordinate with looks. Lace-up heels have just enough detail to be interesting, but since the details are more on the subtle side, it doesn’t overwhelm your #OOTD.  Lace-up heels make the right statement, and investing in a pair is the right move this season for any fashionista.

Fashionistas all over the globe have been spotted by street style photographer lens in lace-up heels. Here’s my rundown of street style looks that should inspire your lace-up heel style this year:
main.original.585x0

Take your eyes off Olivia Palermo’s flawless print on print ensemble for a second, and avert your gaze onto her rich forest green lace-up heels. I love how the romantic feel of the jewel toned lace up heel contrasts against the graphic black and white separates.

main.original.585x0 (8)

Another modern style icon, Alexa Chung, lends downtown cool to the conventional evening feel of lace-up heels. With her trademark mini, vintage framed bag, and tomboyish sweater, she lends a definite mod vibe to this look.

main.original.585x0 (7)

Anna Kendrick shows off her style smarts, since the delicate details of lace-up heels are perfect for girls with petite frames. These snakeskin lace-up heels match perfectly with her black dress and white blazer. I love that pop of orange too!

main.original.585x0 (6)

A fringe skirt makes a major splash, but these white lace-up heels look just as good with it. It continues the movement in the look and coordinates with the summery vibe of this look.

main.original.585x0 (5)

Consider these nude lace-up heels your best friend for the summer. More than being leg-lengthening, these nude sandals are versatile. It looks stunning with this midi skirt, and is sure to look just as great with your summery rompers or denim shorts.

main.original.585x0 (4)

Although commonly associated with boho style, brown lace-up sandals can also go with more graphic pieces, just like these striped trousers.

main.original.585x0 (3)

Blogger Aimee Song of Song of Style is so good at mixing trends with more dressed up pieces. She does so quite brilliantly when she mixes trendy blue lace-up heels with a dove gray and white structured set.

main.original.585x0 (2)

Actress and style blogger Jamie Chung adds a flashy flair to her casual daytime style. Her tasseled and lace up sandals uplift her cropped top and joggers ensemble. I especially love the black footwear with the earthy tones of the look.main.original.585x0 (1)In fashion, sometimes opposites do attract. A very sporty top juxtaposed with the sophistication and sexiness of lace-up heels is an ingenious way to set yourself apart from your run-of-the-mill aspiring fashionista.

Style Icon: Victoria Beckham

Latest trends

Victoria Beckham, known to 90s lovers as Posh Spice, has truly made a name for herself in the fashion industry. Her early affinity for designer labels, Gucci in particular, and little black dresses shot her to fame–not counting her membership in mega girl group Spice Girls, of course. She may be out of the entertainment industry now, but she has managed to plant her foot firmly into the fashion and retail industry. Her namesake fashion line, Victoria Beckham, has been staging one stunning season after another, and the handbags from her line are quickly reaching cult status with fashion industry insiders. She is more than just an ex-Spice Girl and she is definitely more than one half of “Posh and Becks,” she has made herself into a style icon and fashion mogul.

Victoria is coming over to Singapore to close Singapore Fashion Week 2015 this Sunday. With all the tickets to her show sold out way before all the rest it is obvious there is no hotter celebrity right now. To those hoping David is going to join his sweetheart at her show: I’m with you people!!!

Here are my picks of Victoria Beckham’s best looks ever:

main.original.585x0

Is there anything more classy and luxurious than a camel colored look? Victoria Beckham proves its timeless appeal. With details like a cap toe heel, leopard print handbag and a ribboned belt, she elevates the innate elegance of this camel trousers and trench pairing.

main.original.585x0 (3)

Red is such a powerful color. Wearing it from top to toe is a testament to one’s confidence and fashion savvy. A neat ponytail and classic sunnies finish off this sophisticated fiery red look. Note that embellished waist detail and conservative yet fetching dress slit.

main.original.585x0 (2)

Covered up for the fall and still sexy, Victoria Beckham is indeed the master of looking glam at any time of day. Clad in a comfy white turtleneck and a knit skirt, Becks truly wows with the ultimate autumn outfit accent, a sexy pair of tall suede burgundy boots.

main.original.585x0 (1)

Airport style is another fashion arena where Victoria Beckham shines. Her jet set lifestyle as a fashion designer, mom, and wife to a soccer star, takes her to many places and she always makes sure that she looks amazing at every destination. A blue oxford button down with a floral pencil skirt is laid back and simple, yet amazingly put together too.

54bc042883443_-_hbz-victoria-beckham-13-lg

Victoria Beckham has always been a fan of fashion luxury. Her fur shrug and Hermes Birkin proves her love. Worn with skin tight skinnies and black ultra high platforms, she still gains a fashion edge and avoids that brand victim trap.

54bc0424c7896_-_hbz-victoria-beckham-07

Pencil skirts are key to Victoria Beckham’s signature personal style. A classic 50s combo of sweater and pencil skirt gets upgraded with a scarf, to add a certain Parisian flair. Becks is certainly one woman that oozes that “je ne sais quoi.”

54bc042fe6afc_-_hbz-victoria-beckham-26

An ultra girly and adorable mod inspired frock takes centerstage in this ensemble. Balanced with rock n’ roll ankle booties, Victoria Beckham surely defines style with an edge in this look. I just love the scalloped detailing in this look.

This look is a bit of a throwback from Victoria’s fashion archives, which is precisely why it cements her style icon status. Even during her youth, she already knows what works for her sartorially. Chic and simple, her former trademark angled bob perfectly accents her cream colored flouncy tiered ruffle dress.

Fur makes another appearance in this list, and this definitely showcases her British spunk. Neatly pulled back hair, an oversized envelope clutch, plus a one-two punch of opaque tights and ankle booties, Victoria Beckham’s style is overflowing with so much pizzazz and undone glamour.
