Female (Malaysia) - - Q&A -

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!
