This is one cliche that I will always approve of. White has always been a staple color for spring/summer fashion, but with the black-and-white color blocking trend still staying strong, it’s the perfect time to invest in all the white that you need in your closet!
A white top can match pretty much anything and everything! I love this particular one as it has this trendy mesh detail that adds a subtle hint of sexiness. Add a pop of neon for more fun!
White pants can be difficult to pull off for most people (and not to mention, can induce major stain paranoia) but the right cut and the right fit can give you a fresh and unique look.
A white jacket need not look like a doctor’s white coat. This particular one has sequins on them, making it a good day-to-night add-on to a seemingly casual outfit. I’m actually just wearing a simple chiffon top and plain denim shorts underneath!
It’s the combination of two different things that made me so happy about how this outfit turned out! Spikes and pearls surprisingly work well together, and I think it’s also very descriptive of my personal style (which tends to be rather bipolar). If you’re still into royal blue color accent like me, feast your eyes on these sky high wedges! They’re definitely one of the most photogenic pairs of shoes that I have.
Anyhow, I’ve been feeling under the weather recently, so I apologize for the lack of new entries (I know I posted this look 4 days ago on Lookbook and I’m only posting a proper entry for it now), but I promise to get back on my feet as soon as I get better! I wasn’t able to share how incredibly tortuous my throat became last December, but I actually got a major fever and a really bad case of pharyngitis before Christmas. Had to be on a soft diet (seriously, on Christmas eve too) and antibiotics for days. I thought that was over until two days ago when my throat started acting up again like it’s desperately trying to claw its way out of my body, which was the same exact feeling I had with my throat last December. Hoping I’ll get enough rest tonight so I can go back to work tomorrow. Health is wealth~
Silver everywhere! The holidays make it so acceptable to go all-out with everything shiny, and it looks like I won’t be getting over it any time soon. Metallics make seemingly-plain outfits look fancier than they actually are, which is always good for those like me with closets full of mostly casual basics.
The highlights of this outfit? My silver Sheen watch and tassel heels. Sheen watches never fail to give off a very classy vibe, and I’m so happy they recently got SNSD to endorse their watches. Check out the new Sheen ad with Yoona and Seohyun on my sidebar! SO PRETTY!
And these heels! Oh, where do I even start? If Santa’s little elves went into a major fashion revolution, they’d probably wear shoes that look like these.
AHH! The quest for the perfect checkered leggings is finally over. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I get really obsessive-compulsive about patterns. High standards, maybe, or I’m just a little sensitive to what I like to see and wear. Some checkered leggings I’ve seen have squares that are too big, or have too contrasting colors. This, one, however… <3
I paired it with a top with cut-out shoulders, and holes that remind me of the ones that you cut out of giant posters and tarpaulins so that air can pass through. Err, yeah. I have the most unglamorous stuff in my head sometimes.
It’s wine red season again, and I went all matchy-matchy with my bag and shoes. These heels are my first pair in this color, and I wear them all the time now! It’s a classy shade of red that’s not too bright and bold. Now available in Schu Trinoma and Rockwell.
Shiny leggings and jacket! If you’re on a budget and you can’t afford to buy all the pretty leather goods in the world, there is always artificial leather.
I am obsessed with printed bottoms! Where have they been hiding all my life? I would’ve worn these all throughout college if I only got my hands (or legs) on them back then.
What’s wonderful about printed bottoms is that they debunk the whole notion of anything that covers the legs being conservative and boring. Finally, gone are the days when one would automatically resist anything that has to do with anti-shorts/skirts dress codes (usually in churches and universities) since that would mean being limited to jeans. So what if you’re limited to covering your legs? Leggings and pants have now become statements on their own, and not just that “plain and neutral” thing that you pair with your favorite blouse, shoes or designer bag.
Here are some of my recent looks featuring printed bottoms! At first I was intimidated by the thought of covering my legs with all these busy prints, but I figured that as long as you focus on one key element in your outfit, these are godsend.
For this look, I wore black and silver to make the pink and purple color of my pants stand out. In general, neutrals are the safest to pair with printed bottoms since they’re a sure way to avoid looking too overwhelming. All eyes will automatically be directed to your pants!
For this look, I took into consideration the colors of the flowers on my leggings to decide what color top I should wear. This is my foolproof way of making an outfit look coherent. This look would’ve also worked if I wore yellow or plum.
For this look, I paired my black and white pants with another black and white top so the colors of the shoes and bag will stand out. You know how the color accent option in cameras work? They focus on one or two colors, and make the rest of the picture black, gray and white.
Yes, I just did a photography reference on a personal style/fashion post. This is how geeky I can get.
