Dress down Fridays

Look 2: “Dress down Fridays”

Thank God, It’s Friday! You can already smell the weekend, so it’s time to take out your favourite pair of jeans! But it’s still a workday, and there might be a meeting on today… so we want to keep it a little more professional. Pair up your jeans with a crisp, white shirt – a must-have in any girl’s wardrobe! Uniqlo’s F/W16-17 Collection uses the lightest of fabrics to create light, breatheable shirts, making this perfect for Singapore’s warm climate. Slip on those heels and grab a schnazzy clutch to match, because it’s just a few more hours to Friday Night Cocktails!

To complete the look: Pair with your marble accessories you’ve been dying to wear the entire week.

Look 3:  “First date”

It’s always so stressful to go on a first date. You don’t want to look like you’ve waited for your entire life for this, yet do you want to look like you can’t be bothered… You want to keep it cool, but yet come off as cute, so what on earth will you wear?! Try this classic white, backless dress for that sweet, sporty, yet sexy look. P.S. Bring your denim jacket as it might get cold in the cinema!

A splash of colour: Glam it up with some gold accents with this gold faced watch / chunky gold and white bracelet, and this shiny coin necklace.

Model-off duty

Look 4: “Model-off duty”

You literally need just to run a few errands, but what if you bump into one of your exes, or worse, your ex’s new lover? Not to worry, this off-the-catwalk look is definitely a head turner. Throw on a blazer over a white tee and denim shorts, and jazz up your look with a white leather tote/clutch and sneakers to match. Put on some shades and tasseled-hoop earrings to chic up your look, and you’re ready to face anything!

Breakfast meeting

Look 5: “Breakfast meeting”

Even if you’re not a morning person, this simple combo would make people think you are! You’ve got this – own that meeting and show them who’s boss, even before you sip your first cup of coffee. Try this no-fuss white, backless dress, and pair it with classic nude, pointed heels, and a floral, nude scarf to match! Pair this with a nude or pastel-coloured bag for the ultimate picture of elegance!

Let’s see some sparkle: Make your outfit classier with a rose gold necklace, and matching baby-pink notebooks!

The dream job interview

Look 6: “The dream job interview”

As clichéd as it may sound, your first impression goes a long way. You’ve done your homework and you’ve stayed up all night to prepare you for the interview of your dream job. Seal the deal with this #girlboss outfit! Throw on a blazer over this elegant, clean-cut black dress, and pair it with a black patent leather clutch.

Complete this look with a square metal bracelet and a necklace to express your dazzling personality!

Denim on denim

Look 7: “Denim on denim”

Heading out to hang with friends on a lazy Sunday afternoon? Nothing says casual like denim on denim! Soften up this look by going with blush pink shoes and accessories, and a white shirt to break up the monotony!

Add some shine: Small, muted accessories like rose gold, or marbled ear studs work well with a look like this! Feeling a little more fancy? Try a minimalist, silver necklace for some low-key-but-classy vibes!

Woke-up like this
