While accessorising may be the last thing on your mind when your alarm clock rings, a pair of statement-making earrings can negate bad hair days, elevate modest outfits and navigate the boardroom-to-bar dress code. South Korean model Irene Kim injected a playful edge into her pared-back outfit with a pair of pink drop earrings.

There is nothing classier – or easier – than styling an outfit that’s purely black and white. Both bold and classic, a black-and-white ensemble is understated enough to work for any event on your calendar. South Korean singer Jessica Jung’s black knitted sweater (worn around her neck) elevates her white tee and skirt outfits and adds a pretty texture.

The Thai model-actress who recently bagged the “Best New Actress” award at the Asia Pacific Film Festival held in Taipei stepped out in an oversized blazer, paired with a distressed denim skirt. “Dad” sneakers add that finishing cool-girl touch.
Not afraid to take fashion risks, Taiwanese actress Ouyang Nini has been rocking oversized “Dad” sneakers for quite some time. While many would use them to complete casual ensembles, Ouyang Nini has been pairing them with athleisure outfits, chic dresses and everything in between. To rock the trainers like Ouyang Nini, forget their bulky silhouette and treat them like you would with any other shoe.

This season, it’s officially hip to be square. If you’re ready to retire your off-the-shoulder tops and dresses, follow Korean actress Song Hye Kyo’s lead and try rocking a square-neck frock for a change. A romantic square neckline shows just enough skin to be flirty and feminine while its covered shoulders make it a double option for the office.
A ditzy floral print skirt like this one seen on radio jock Sonia Chew has the power to take your everyday look up a notch in an instant. Use it as the foundation to your outfit and dial up the bohemian undertones by finishing it with a billowy off-the-shoulder blouse and dainty jewellery.

The denim skirt is a wardrobe staple that looks just as good (if not cooler) going into the fall season. To make even more of a statement, take a leaf out of Denise’s book and seek out a fashion-forward skirt style that boasts an asymmetrical detail. Keep the rest of your outfit simple and let your skirt speak for itself.

A blazer dress like this one seen on “You can be an Angel” star is comfortable, fuss free and can have you looking like a #girlboss. Just like an oversized blazer, you’ll have to pay special attention to the fit of your blazer dress to avoid an overly boxy silhouette that overwhelms your frame. Depending on your body shape, you will either want to widen through the hips for a fit-and-flare look, ore remain narrow, skimming the body. Once you’ve nailed down the fit, all you need is a swipe of lipstick and great pair of heels and you’re all set.
