GOT A BURNING FASHION QUESTION? OUR SPECIAL PROJECTS WRITER COMES TO THE RESCUE WITH SPOT-ON STYLE ADVICE.
Q“I RECENTLY CLEANED OUT MY CLOSET AND FOUND A NUMBER OF KHAKI PIECES WHICH ARE STILL IN GOOD CONDITION. BACK THEN, I FOUND THEM HARD TO MATCH (I STILL DO ACTUALLY!) SO I’M CONTEMPLATING ON DISCARDING THEM. IS THERE ANY WAY THAT I COULD MAKE THEM WORK WITHOUT LOOKING DRAB OR BASIC?”
– Cindy Lourdes, Kajang
ADon’t get rid of them just yet! Khaki is such a good hue to play with, especially if you’re into mixing colours. No matter what shade you’ve got, go for bold colours to stand out like deep red, mustard, fuchsia and even lime green. And because khaki is a versatile colour that goes with so many things, the possibilities are endless when you’re experimenting!
Q“I’M PLANNING MY FIRST EUROTRIP THIS MONTH AND MY BIGGEST CHALLENGE IS PACKING LIGHT. IN THE PAST, I’D VISIT ONE LOCATION ONLY, WHICH ALLOWED ME TO BRING MULTIPLE CHOICES TO PICK FROM SO I CAN TAKE GREAT OOTDS. BUT THIS TIME, I’LL BE CONSTANTLY ON THE MOVE AND I CAN’T DO THE SAME THING. HOW DO I PACK LIGHT AND STILL LOOK GOOD?” – Vanessa Ong,Taman Desa
AI completely understand your situation because I had the same problem too! I find that having a few classic pieces with a bunch of jewellery choices do the trick extremely well. Since you’re visiting Europe towards the end of Autumn, the key items I would suggest packing are comfy sweaters, a jacket for when it gets chilly, ankle booties that work for day or night and a handful of your favourite accessories!
