Best dressed celebs of the week: Jun Ji-hyun, Zoe Tay and Joanne Peh
Dress like a lady, work like a boss
Being and dressing feminine takes a whole new definition these days – our stylish stars have shown us that you can dress ladylike but also be edgy and fashion-forward at the same time.
It’s all about injecting your own personal take on what it means to be a fashionable female. Whether it’s mixing up a flowy prairie blouse with boyish denim like South Korean model Irene Kim, or borrowing your workwear look from the boys like “My Love From The Star” actress Jun Ji-hyun, whatever you decide is feminine is ladylike right now. Scroll through the gallery see all our favourite looks of the week.
You can tackle this trend by doubling up on the proportion and by matching your high-waisted trousers with an equally voluminous top. The trick here is to tuck your blouse in to define your waist. You can finish this look with a statement accessory like a pair of metallic heels.
When it comes to wearing denim skirts, a rule of thumb is to keep your top simple and let the skirt steal the spotlight. Supermodel Irene Kim’s sheer Isabel Marant top gives the outfit a vintage and bohemian feel.
The Korean model completed her ensemble with an eye-catching transparent purse from her very own eponymous label.
If you thought your embellished garments were only fit for the festive season, think again. At both New York and London Fashion Week, sequins reigned supreme on the SS18 runways.
“Ah Jie” made a case for long, loose fitted sequin evening gowns when she stepped out in an elegant glittery number by Ferragamo. The key to nailing this trend is to keep your statement-worthy piece to a single item.
Pair the sequined piece with wardrobe staples such as a white tee or pair of jeans. If you want to ease yourself into the sequin trend, opt for a pair of statement earrings or cute bag.
The rare (fashion) moment where a lace maxi dress doesn’t look like a bridal get-up. The colorful basket bag with pom pom details and blue micro sunglasses seen on the social media superstar ties everything together.
If you’re looking for a fresh way to reinvent your most comfortable athleisure outfit, let local actress Joanne Peh lead the way. Thanks to her thoughtful layering tactic, there’s honestly nothing not to love about this look.
Her muscle tank, flannel and raw hem jeans ensemble proves that athleisure wear, when styled correctly, can look extremely polished.
Few things are easier to style than a graphic tee, unfortunately the downside of that it it’s all too easy to pair it with the same pair of jeans. Comfy? Yes. Instagram-worthy? Not so much.
Graphic tee outfits can be creative, though, as celebs have proven time and again. Take local actress Carrie Wong’s outfit, which consisted of a slogan tee from Pomelo paired with flared leg denim trousers from Taiwanese celebrity Sui Tang’s fashion line – this OOTD was simple yet undeniably eye-catching.
If you’re counting down the days until you jet off to an island and can’t wait to whip out that suitcase, here’s an outfit to inspire you for your next holiday and to save you any trouble you might encounter when packing.
A pair of bright and bold sandals like this one seen on former actress Jacelyn Tay play up your sheer swimsuit cover-up, so you can walk out to the beach in style.
A lace corset probably won’t work for the office, so layer up with a patterned tee instead for a modern take on the smart-casual power suit. Taiwanese popstar is a huge fan of this look. She sported this checkered suit at a recent event for fashion house, Dior.
The twins posed together for a Kate Spade event. Hayley balanced out her ladylike lace frock with a pair of white trainers while Jaylee opted for a figure flattering printed jumpsuit styled with a pair of burgundy heels.
