No matter how ever-evolving our closets are, there are some staples that always stay, and a good old pair of black flats (or mid-heels if you are a heels addict like me) is one of them. While it is perfectly fine to stick to your plain black ballerinas, I have rounded up a few alternatives that prove this staple can be functional yet fun.
The festive season is all about parties and reunions. But it’s also the busiest time of the year – rushing for deadlines at work, making holiday plans, buying pressies for everyone, and finding the right outfit for every single party/get-together you are going to attend… Just thinking about these is giving you a headache? Don’t worry, ahead are 13 essentials for both high and low budgets that will get you through this holiday season and beyond.
Growing up as a girl who likes her basketball more than her makeup (I didn’t buy my first makeup set till I was 19…), I always have a soft spot for the Sports Luxe trend. I wish there were such a thing in my teenage years, so that I would have enjoyed wearing my athletic gear but still feel feminie. God bless those designers who incorporate mesh and jersey into daily wear. With a couple simple styling tricks, we can finally rock that comfy sweater dress whenever we want.
It was my birthday a while ago. For some reason, I have totally forgotten about doing my birthday dress hunt earlier (classic procrastinator). Luckily, The Iconic has come to rescue and delivered this dress on my birthday morning.
Getting dressed up in newbies is fun. But on a lazy day, the last thing on my mind is curating some next-level outfit. This is the time I turn to my monotone items in the closet.
As life is quite busy these days, I rely heavily on pieces that can take me from desk to cocktails to shorten my morning routine. A couple days ago, I needed to see a client for a quick coffee meeting in the afternoon and attended a cocktail party for work afterwards. Knowing that I would be surrounded by a lot of people from the fashion industry in the party, I wanted to wear something that would make me feel chic yet powerful.
The holidays are over but our holiday mood is not. The champagne glasses might have been packed away but there is no need to ditch our party dresses. What if we can restyle these items and secretly extend that holiday spirit just a little longer? As much as we girls love to get new “occasion outfits” for different parties, we did put in a lot of effort in picking these cute numbers in the first place. Ahead is how I double my Christmas dress as a dress and a top.
