GOT A BURN­ING QUES­TION? OUR FASH­ION WRITER COMES TO THE RES­CUE WITH SOME SPOT-ON STYLE AD­VICE.

Female (Malaysia) - - Q&A -

Q“I NO­TICED THAT CHUNKY SNEAK­ERS ARE ON TREND LATELY, AS SEEN ON SOME OF MY FAVOURITE IN­STA­GRAM­MERS. I’D LOVE TO TRY THE LOOK OUT ON MY UP­COM­ING TRIP TO EUROPE. WHAT WOULD YOU SUG­GEST I WEAR THEM WITH?” – Roz Seth, Mont Kiara

AI’m glad you asked cos this trend is fiery hot on the streets right now and I know just the pieces for you to pair ‘em with. Bet­ter yet, I guar­an­tee you own 90 per cent of these items in your closet al­ready! Go ahead and fo­cus on bal­anc­ing your look with lay­ers and bright hues for an even sil­hou­ette to avoid the shoes from wear­ing you. I’d sug­gest tak­ing a struc­tured blazer, palazzo pants, an over­sized sweat­shirt or a denim jacket as your go-to pieces and the rest will fall into place.

Q“I’M A HUGE FAN OF GRAPHIC TEES BUT OVER­SIZED CLOTHES SEEM TO BE THE CRAZE RIGHT NOW. HOW DO I ROCK THEM ON REG­U­LAR DAYS WITH­OUT LOOK­ING TOO BAGGY?” – Sarah Lim, Am­pang Jaya

AS­tart by pick­ing out a T-shirt or a but­ton-down shirt that’s one size larger and fo­cus on hav­ing that leaner look on the bot­tom half of your body by tuck­ing your top into some­thing more fit­ted to ac­cen­tu­ate your curves; go for a pen­cil skirt or flare trousers to look more work-ap­pro­pri­ate. Fin­ish off by slip­ping into a pair of pointed slides in black or put on gold ar­chi­tec­tural ear­rings for a no­tice-me mo­ment. Psst... this look works for a ladies’ night too!
