Warm Hues

Daily essentials reimagined with a modern minimalist approach is what Oak + Fort stands for. I’ve been not only a fan of the style, but also a regular customer. This outfit was assembled with pieces from Oak + Fort, including the orange turtleneck jumper, the velvet joggers, and the boyfriend jacket. The coherent warm hues in the jacket’s pattern and the jumper, complemented by the heavy tones and chunky feel from the pants, purse and shoes, synthesized this stylish and appropriate look for the chilly weather.

Winter & Cool Tones

Among the colors practiced by the street styles of the world, there are two shades that are unusually and consistently styled together: pale pink and grey – a stunning favourite of mine. The two team up to deliver an outfit that is minimalist, sleek, chic, and let’s not forget feminine. For this look I’ve evenly distributed the pink and grey and added some white to dilute the intensity of the mix. Many may challenge that these colors are a tad too light for winter weather, but I personally think cool tones in winter time are way too underrated :-).

Styling Faux Fur

What comes to mind when you think about wearing fur? I personally think of couture, statement, luxury, and maybe freezing cold, haha. I’ve recently discovered a new found appreciation for it as I looked for winter outfit alternatives. I’ve now officially ventured into the world of faux fur coats and I can’t seem to stop. It’s addictive. I’ve always thought fur coats are very pretty but happily stayed away because I wasn’t sure how to style it without it looking a little “too much”, and that hasn’t changed, I still think it can look excessive, I just no longer have a problem with it. 🙂 Why should you limit yourself from wearing what you feel like on any given day? I’ve picked up this gorgeous fur coat in pink from Shein.com and it’s a great buy, it kept me warm on this zero degree weather and it just looks so chic. It’s on sale so click here to check it out! How to accessorize: Remember, it’s a coat, but it’s also a fancy accessory because of the fur, so you …

Styling Waterfall Coat

Christmas and new years in Toronto are always so cold that I find myself constantly shopping for outerwear during this season. I fell in love with this waterfall coat the moment I saw it on sale on Shein.com. I adored the neutral tone and the ankled length – making it a classic timeless piece. In general waterfall coats are versatile, in winter it’s best matched with turtle necks and jeans whereas in spring and fall you can rock it with a simple tee or tank. This coat is medium in thickness so it’s even more flexible and seasons friendly, remember to always wear some pumps for additional sass and flare and let the coat fall beautifully at your ankles. ❤ P.S. Happy new year everyone! I had a great 2016 and I welcome 2017 with open arms 🙂 As a fashion new year resolution, I plan to be more adventurous and open to experiment with new styles, I’m optimistic that pleasant surprises await me 🙂 Outfit Details: Jacket – Shein | Jeans – Zara | Shoes – Aldo | Sweater – Boutique Thank you for reading lovelies, what …

Day Out With Florals

As part of my LA trip, I prepared many outfits to take advantage of the gorgeous weather, and so I bring you a summer outfit in the middle of winter! If you follow my blog you’ll know I love off-the-shoulder anything; It’s feminine and simply impossible to mess up. I went for a casual day out vibe and matched my floral off-the-shoulder top with shorts and sneakers (Shoes matter! you’d change the vibe to “sexy” by just wearing some strapped heels). Florals and warm toned accessories together is a match made in heaven, so I wore some dainty gold accessories and made sure they’re subtle so they don’t add onto the busy-ness, including this beautiful minimal choker from Lucky Jerks – an accessory e-shop with everything hand made in Paris! I’ve always been a fan of gold coloured accessories, it’s versatile and timeless. In comparison, gold also offers a wider range of options i.e. white gold, rose gold, etc. while silver accessories tend to make a bolder statement – so depends on how you feel that day, accessorize accordingly. 🙂 Thanks …

Off-The-Shoulder

One of my favorite trends of all time – off-the-shoulder. I was very pleased to see this trend coming back for summer fashion, it absolutely slays. Not only does it scream summer, it’s extremely flattering on girls with any body types. It’s not just for the few with model figures, but also for girls who are a little more plum – these tops do not hold back in revealing the neckline and the boniest parts of the upper body, and they also conveniently hides where it starts to curve out. Sigh, it’s just the best. 🙂

Gender Neutrals

I’ve always been a fan of the female body silhouette and fancy anything that compliments my figure, but recently I find myself blurring the lines by wearing gender neutral styles and tones. It’s strange, I no longer mind buying clothes that are sizes up my normal fit, and no longer feel self-conscious about wearing loosely fitted pants. Somehow flat hipped jeans and shapeless dresses have sneaked their way into my wardrobe. Perhaps it’s an age thing, or perhaps it’s another form of confidence. As street style continues to prevail in the market, it’s clear that although the gender neutrals reflect designers’ curiosity, they aren’t accidents – they’ve pretty much dominated the conversation. The best part is that it works both ways, as I shop in men’s section, I also see men shop in women’s. It takes some open minds, but it seems function and individuality are now held in higher regards than an uniform idea of what’s conventionally appropriate. As some industry insiders put it, it’s more evolutionary than revolutionary, the blurred lines is a result of our changing attitude and culture, we’re just becoming …

More on Asymmetry

The sweater is a gift from my aunt while I was on vacation in China. Needless to say I love everything about it. If you read my earlier post featuring asymmetry, this is an addition to the collection – asymmetrical sleeves. Enjoy 🙂 Hope you liked the look! (:

Cotton Candy

All designers want their work to stand out, and color palettes are a powerful tool as they draw attention and showcase creativity. A growing trend in web design is the use of less dominant colors, along with a shift towards pastel colors. Pastel colors are simply magical to me, while being peaceful and modest, they project a vibe of positivity and warmth. It requires the right kind of mix to achieve a good balance between color and tone when wearing light colors, since it’s easy to look washed out. Here’s an outfit I put together, casual, brightening, along with a bag from Kate Spade that reminds me of cotton candy.       As usual, hope you guys liked the outfit. I know my sense of style isn’t for everyone, so thanks for your support along the way. ❤
