Chloe served us with a girly, fuchsia pussybow blouse and Versace went with an edgier twist by fashioning a bronze-toned wrap skirt on Kaia Gerber. This shine elevates everyday wear, giving your #OOTD a little sparkle without looking too much for work.
Here, we have eight picks to show you how to work it. You’re welcome.

A slip dress is sexy. A slip dress decked in a cerulean blue sheen is fashion (cue Meryl Streep’s character, Miranda Priestly in The Devil Wears Prada). If it’s too sultry for work, throw on a black blazer over to sharpen the look up.
Okay, we know that the sheen may be on overdrive when it’s paired with a vibrant colour. So, if you’re not into that, here’s a beige skirt to choose from. It features knife pleats for that touch of sass and femininity.
Wearing a pair of leggings as pants may be a faux pas five years back. But, when the athleisure trend boomed in 2016, donning them outside of the gym is a norm. Here’s what we suggest: marry these two trends together, simply because you can.
6. Orseund Iris silk shirt, US$382.04 (about S$523.47), from Net-a-Porter
This is not a simple black silk shirt. We repeat, this is not a simple black silk shirt. Its elongated sleeves, wide cuffs and choker detail allow it to stand out from its peers. Finish your look with some sass by wearing it with a box pleated skirt.
7. Balenciaga satin wrap skirt, US$1,697 (about S$2,324.64), from Matchesfashion
Balenciaga’s prefall collection was all about having highly saturated garbs and this skirt is no less. Its floor length silhouette and satin texture makes this casual number glamourous. We’d recommend wearing it with just a simple white t-shirt.
8. Diane von Furstenberg triacetate wrap dress, US$660.38 (about S$904.79), from Net-a-Porter
We can’t think of a world without DVF’s wrap dresses. Though they were all the rage in the ‘70s, they are still relevant and fashionable today. Wear this with a pair of sandals and a straw bag for that effortless look.
