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