If you feel that coordinating an outfit is a painstaking effort, you can always count on a bag that does the talking for you. Taiwanese actress Ruby Lin loves her loud bags and ain’t afraid to flaunt them – check out her bejewelled Fendi bag that gives us some serious Hello Kitty vibes, and her playful Karl Lagerfeld tote bags.
Here’s another one for you if putting together an #OOTD just makes you pull your hair out. Overalls and jumpsuits are the way to go, need we say more? It’s definitely worth investing in one-piece items that already do all the work for you. Jeanette Aw looks incredibly put together in a fitting crisp blue jumpsuit, as well as in an overalls with a whimsical geometric print.
Caps are a staple for celebs to stay low profile when they’re off-duty, and they’re perfect for us mortals to channel the couldn’t-care-less vibe. The accessory can switch things up by amping up the grunge factor, or adding a dose of sporty vibe to an otherwise plain graphic-tee-and-denim-shorts combo. Oh, and of course, they help to hide those unsightly or greasy roots!
What’s a weekend look without a dainty off-shoulder top? Go ahead and show off your beautiful décolletage. Most of us wear it as is or with a choker, but we love Julie Tan’s adventurous choice of a thin scarf – that final flourish is all you need to set yourself apart.
We could always do with some “shady” business. Sunglasses are not just essential for protecting our eyes, they instantly make us look cooler and give us a confidence boost to step out of the house bare faced. Ah Jie Fann Wong shows us how to do it, looking at the world through rose-tinted glasses (literally), and rocking a pair of funky cat eye shades on another occasion.
When you’re off-duty, comfort is the keyword, and the first item that comes to mind is a slouchy pullover. Supermodel Liu Wen looks on point even when she’s not on the runway, thanks to her unique pullover choices, like a multicoloured knit with big stars stamped on it.
Another lesson to be learnt from a supermodel: Go bananas over bandanas. Use this oft-neglected accessory to complement your outfit or add a bold pop of colour for a trendy yet laidback feel. And did we mention it’s the best way to put “Messy hair, don’t care” into practice?
The last thing you’ll want on your off day is to be tottering around in sky-high heels. Being out and about will be a breeze with your trusty kicks that go with pretty much anything, from a skirt to jeans.
Ripped jeans (together with a white shirt) are the number one go-to for celebs, and it’s no wonder why – jeans are perfect if you don’t want to look overly casual, and the ripped detail adds a dose of character. It’s the epitome of being fashion forward without coming across as trying too hard.
No one wants to struggle with an unforgiving bodycon dress when they’re on a well-deserved break. So eat to your heart’s content in a fuss-free loose fitting dress! But that doesn’t mean your getup has to be boring – Huang Biren shows us how to rock the minimal style with a turquoise necklace that’s a fun accent to her outfit.
