Food jour­nal­ist Ch­eryl Tiu spices up her closet with head-turn­ing pieces and funky ac­ces­sories

In be­tween her dead­lines, one may find Ch­eryl Tiu in any of the new­est food des­ti­na­tions around the world, savour­ing en­trées or re­view­ing newly con­coted cock­tails. It isn’t hard to take no­tice of Tiu as the petite charmer has her sig­na­ture style down pat. Given her hec­tic travel sched­ule, she re­lies on a cap­sule wardrobe which con­sists of prac­ti­cal pieces that can be worn in many ways, and com­bines them with eye-catch­ing ac­ces­sories in con­trast­ing de­tails to re­flect an edgy, rock n' roll vibe. She names Olivia Pa­lermo and Rocky Barnes as her cur­rent In­sta­gram style in­spi­ra­tions.

“This neck­lace in gold and white glass beads em­bel­lished with fresh­wa­ter baroque pearls was inspired by the vi­brant pat­terns of T'nalak and hand­made by T'boli ar­ti­sans from South Cota­ba­to­based life­style brand Tribe Dreamweavers”

“This vin­tage Chanel belt is spe­cial be­cause it came from my mum. It’s so unique; I haven’t seen any­thing like it in years. I wear it as a belt and some­times as a neck­lace”

“This LBD from de­signer Chris Diaz has a re­ally in­ter­est­ing fi­bre­glass de­tail, which drew me to it. Plus, it doesn’t wrin­kle and is su­per easy to pack! I’ve brought it with me on so many of my trips”

“I love how re­source­ful Her­mès is with their scarves. The Pe­tit H silk neck­lace is a chic choker that can throw on any out­fit to add a splash of colour!”

“I use this Commes des Garçons leather bag for my lap­top. The shape is so un­ortho­dox, it al­ways com­mands at­ten­tion when I walk into places”

“This MAC Power Point in En­graved is my favourite eye­liner, I've been us­ing it for years. For day­time, I use the shade Stub­born Brown”

“My cur­rent favourite ear­rings are from Amami, my younger sis­ter Chris­tine’s so­cial en­ter­prise, which cel­e­brates tra­di­tional hand­crafted Philip­pine her­itage jew­ellery to give lo­cal artists a sus­tain­able liveli­hood”
