Hers

Bring out your inner Tiffany’s with a simple white tee and pencil jeans skirt. Pair it with a pair of loafers and accessorize with a cute little bracelet and you’re ready to go. It isn’t about style. It’s about Sophistication. 

There’s a reason why we love StyleMint, the Row and Gap.

 

With the uprising Hallyu wave, it is no wonder that Asians are becoming more prominent among today’s social scene. One should diverge one’s attention into the fashion scene in Southeast Asia today. APERÇU, led by Singaporean designer Kwoon Lim and Indonesian designer Catrine Thé, is making its name into the fashion scene.

Its recent collection expresses women-in-power today. Looks exposes strong lines and form-fitting cuttings that is sleek and chic.

No one can ever underestimate summer’s heat. Asia is definitely the place to experience the blazing sun, rising temperature, dripping sweat and diminishing cloth scenes. I am definitely experiencing this skin and body expansion that, scientifically proven, is the cause of heat. With the common Asian haircut nowadays, short locks with a fringe, my forehead seems to be bursting with sweat and oil with every step I take. Definitely not an appealing facial disposition. This inspired me to look into haircuts that are preferable for this summer heat. Pixie cuts for female screams to me but I stumbled onto the “face shape” concern whereby not all face shape fits all haircut. Agyness Deyn has always been known for her pixie cuts to allude her “tom-boy with a cherry-on-top” style. Korean actress Yoon Eun Hye daringly tried a more boyish haircut for her 2005 “Coffee Prince” TV show. Known as a Korean fashionista and trend-setter, her drastic change insinuated short haircuts among Asian females. I myself fall into the “commoner” mentality whereby beauty shines from one’s packaging rather than one’s inner self. Yet, I realized that heat do not only transmit an immediate “I feel hot” response. It is a package of reality. Hair is an accessory, your aura is your naked self.

Floral on Floral is usually a look that is hard to pull of. Floral has always been packaged with femininity. Yet, the use of darker shades for the floral prints with a clean black collar and Oxford shoes gives it a twist. Femininity with flair.
