Best dressed celebs: Jeanette Aw, Joanne Peh and Rebecca Lim
Star, star, star
No matter where they go, celebs never fail to impress with their sartorial choices. If there was a time for muted tones and minimalist silhouettes, this week is not it, according to most sartorially attuned celebrities.
Instead, this week’s best dressed embraced bold and printed ensembles, from Taiwanese singer Rainie Yang’s abstract print shift dress to South Korean model Irene Kim’s leopard print pants. Scroll through the gallery to see all of the best looks for the week.
There is a very thin line between a classy and cheesy look when it comes to wearing leopard print. Since the print is quite dramatic in itself, don’t be too fussy and frilly and keep the clothing lines clear and crisp like South Korean top model Irene Kim.
We spotted (pun intended) the model in a pair of animal print trousers, paired with a classy asymmetrical ribbed sweater.
Light dresses meet floral prints this season for a beautifully vintage take on summer. Dress up a sleeveless floral bustier dress like this one seen on Girl’s Day member Hyeri with a denim jacket, blazer or a leather jacket.
When pairing different coloured separates, one point to bear in mind is to make sure that they have at least one colour in common so the outfit will look put together.
For spring summer 2018, we see a resurgence of the logo trend – and it’s bigger, bolder and brasher than ever before. This Louis Vuitton crossbody bag seen on local actress Rebecca Lim struck the perfect balance between glam and over-the-top. While there are plenty of possibilities when it comes to choosing how to style these logo pieces, one obvious choice is to keep it simple with a plain white tee or bag bearing their confident lettering.
An outfit like this demands some equally eye catching accessories. While it might seem natural to reach for dainty heels, go for unexpected accents instead, like this pair of sporty chunky sandals seen on Taiwanese actress-singer Rainie Yang, to make the look more unique and play up its quirkiness. Plus, the athleisure style sandals provide a nice counterpoint to the artsy, abstract prints in the outfit.
The tartan plaid trend from last fall/winter is still going strong. While this pattern is often seen in the form of oversized blazer coats, it can also be found on pants, coats scarves and skirts. Follow local actress Jeanette’s lead and pair your preppy skirt with a simple plain white tee for a more relaxed look.
Jumpsuits are everywhere right now, but they can be a little intimidating especially if you’ve never worn one before. While they may be inspired by men’s overalls, they can be totally sophisticated in the right cuts and styling. For a casual Sunday outing, the local model-actress donned a pair of denim overalls. She paired the piece with a white scoop neck tee, pearl necklace, and printed clutch.
There are a lot of reasons to look up to the Taiwanese singer-actress Ella Chen, her enviable personal style being just one. Case in point, this elegant look. Elevated by her stiletto heels and monogrammed purse, it’s exactly what we want to wear right now.
Along with being timeless, versatile and ever-changing, did we also mention that the wrap dress seen on Mandopop sensation Coco Lee is extremely flattering? In fact, we may even go as far as to say it’s one of the most flattering dress styles out there, thanks to its waist accentuating feature.
When attending formal events, women tend to fall into the mindset of thinking that a dress is their only option. That said, jumpsuits can be just as polished and put together as a dress while offering an out-of-the box wow factor that will earn you some serious street cred. Just make sure to choose a sleek and well-tailored style that flatters your figure, like this red fiery number seen on local actress Joanne Peh.
